Liverpool 1-0 Augsburg | The Final Word
Liverpool progresses to the last 16 of the Europa League by beating Augsburg 1-0 at Anfield in the second leg of their tie thanks to a soft penalty and James Milner's cool head under pressure. Chris and Paul sit down at the tactics board to bring you the final word this week. Topics include anything from Sakho's mental run to our lack of attacking support from the full backs!
Lucas started at CB- thoughts? The early pen- bit soft? Exactly what we needed though- great take from Milner too. Some really intricate play early on 1st half Sturridge’s outside of the boot pass to Coutinho was sex. Too many chiefs in our attack? Hitz had a good game in goal for them. Lucas dropped a bollock. Sturridge should put his chance away/game to bed 2nd half. Mignolet makes a great save/tackle to keep us in it Henderson. Should score. It’s not happening for him. Nervy closing spell. Stafylidis free kick. Jeesuss. Origi lead the line well coming on. Canny play from Firmino and Milner. Little bit of old school belief from the crowd at the end.
