What We Learned From Liverpool’s Win Over City
Liverpool and Manchester City produced a thriller in the Bronx at Yankee Stadium as the Premiership rivals played out a thrilling 2-2 draw before the Reds won the penalty shoot-out with Simon Mignolet the hero.
The game defined so much of the previous campaign – fine goals and attacking football as the two English giants entertained an enthusiastic American crowd at the famous Yankee Stadium, home of the New York Yankees.
After a goalless first-half, Stevan Jovetic put the Premiership Champions ahead before Jordan Henderson levelled. Jovetic again put City in front but with five minutes remaining Raheem Sterling equalised.
Liverpool won the penalty shoot-out after Kolarov, Yaya Toure and Navas all missed from the spot to give the Reds a psychological boost ahead of the new Premiership season.
Sebastian Coates produced a terrific performance in the heart of Liverpool’s defence alongside Kolo Toure as the Reds were put under intense pressure at time in the game, but it is difficult to see both players feature much in the coming season.
Full-back positions still look problem positions as Martin Kelly on the right and Jose Enrique struggled to cope with City’s wide men.
Lambert will need more games and I think he should be a plan ‘B’ striker and Rodgers must buy more strikers to support Sturridge.
Big positives for Liverpool are Sterling and Coutinho are going to be important players for the Reds this season and Jordan Henderson’s finishing is improving.
Liverpool still have that tremendous work ethic and never say die attitude that Rodgers has installed in them and they will still be in the mix at the top of the league this season.
