Liverpool v Aston Villa Match Review

Essential Betting Facts

Competition
Premier League

If you ever wanted confirmation of a player’s value without him even being on the pitch then this game was the encapsulation of that gaping hole that Lucas vacated when he was left on the bench in order to accommodate Coutinho, Suarez and Sturridge.

After ten minutes it was clear that the tactical gameplan had gone wrong and it was no surprise that Lucas was introduced at half time to correct the deficiency in midfield.

I think it’s fair to say that the manager got this one wrong against an ever improving Villa side but if you are going to give the brickbats out for poor decisions then you should also give plaudits for the balls to correct them and it was absolutely no surprise that Lucas made a belated appearance at the start of the second half.

Anyway – hauling off players after ten minutes simply because you underestimated the strength of the opposition is going to ruin their self confidence – through no fault of their own.

The bare facts are that after 20 minutes or so – and I’m writing this with no notes – is that Villa had 5 shots on target to the Red’s none. And the visitors had more possession in the first half which tells you that something was badly wrong. Never mind the two goals they led by with 44 minutes of the game gone.

This was a wake up call. Villa were excellent and played like a Liverpool away team.

Rodger’s must have been dismayed with the first half performance, with the owner John Henry and his stunning wife in attendance I’m sure he would have been hoping to put on a much better show than this.

How do these sixty year old guys get such good looking women on their arms? Money? Really? Then I better start making some fast!

Liverpool were overrun in midfield in the first half and Sturridge hardly had a touch. When he did he scored bringing the half time deficit to 1-2 and the question was who would get hooked to shore up the midfield.

As far as Suarez’s dive goes for the penalty – and it was a clear dive, I’m really sick of the cheating that this guy brings to the club. He’s making a rod for his own back.

Several times he got clattered from behind with no foul given and once he received a nasty elbow to the face – but if you cry wolf too often - this is exactly what happens kids!

As a footballing spectacle the first time paying fans must have been dismayed at the fare served up today but at least their team managed a draw where none seemed possible. Can anyone tell me the last time Liverpool came from two goals behind to salvage a point?

Against Man United with Nigel Clough and Jamie Redknapp turning around a 0-3 deficit?
