The Main Talking Points
Central Defence Solid
The much talked about Red’s achilles heal was very solid on Friday night. Lovren and the composed Matip did a strong job of containing the dangerous Diego Costa, only making one crucial error which lead to a goal in an otherwise excellent display.
Captain Jordan Henderson delivered and is showing the league what he’s capable of. He was a class act in midfield, dominating and scoring a showstopping goal.
Big Match Temperament
Again the Reds delivered on the big stage with players stepping up to the challenge of meeting a big club. After turning out a big performance on cue against Leicester they again delivered away to Chelsea. They now need to develop some consistency and avoid the slip ups against bottom half clubs.
New Signings Doing Well
Dutch signing Wijnaldum cemented his importance to Klopp’s plan again on Friday, he has a huge work rate and is an important part of the pressing game plan. Along with Matip, the new recruits are starting to deliver which is pleasing to see.
