EFL Cup: LFC vs Arsenal




With superstars starting to reach a falling point, like Salah or Mane, Liverpool is simply unable to stop. The way the students of coach Juergen Klopp upstream beat Arsenal 3-1 in the nearest Premier League round shows that the power gap between the two sides is still extremely large. Because if you save the opportunity, Liverpool can also score twice the number of goals they have scored in Arsenal's net.

But that's what we are talking about about Liverpool's 1st squad. In a long season and promises too many pitfalls, any coach has to set a long-term personality, where the best and most important stars always need to be properly nourished for battles. key. That is why most professionals in England believe that the rematch between Liverpool and Arsenal at Anfield this time will mainly take place between the two sides.

Since taking over Liverpool, coach Klopp has always tended to take the League Cup lightly. This is the tournament that the German military leader often uses as a stage for him to test the young talents of The Kop. Winning doesn't seem so important. It is important that Liverpool give the next class the opportunity to grow up. 

This year, even in the early stages of the season, but the use of young stars and the "secondary double" is sure he still does. Most likely, number two goalkeeper Adrian, midfielder Xhedan Shaqiri and strikers Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino will be the main kick. To add steel, Klopp may bring pillar midfielder Joe Gomez into the field, but his expectation is in the performances of young players like Neco Williams, Curtis Jones or Sepp van den Berg ...

This does not mean that Klopp will let go of the League Cup. Liverpool will still play devotedly with more than 100% of the energy as the familiar style that Klopp requires. Only thing, whether that squad can succeed against Arsenal or not is a huge question mark. Because the Gunners of London seem to be more successful than Liverpool in terms of using young talents, especially in cup tournaments.

Last season, young players such as Maitland-Niles, Reiss Nelson, Joe Willock, Bukayo Saka or Kieran Tierney… contributed great efforts to bring Arsenal to the FA Cup championship. Even Tierney is the decisive passerer for captain Aubameyang to achieve a 2-0 victory over Man City in the semi-finals.

It is thanks to the regular opportunity and trust that Arsenal's young players in a certain respect mature faster than their Liverpool counterparts. Last season, Maitland-Niles, Willock or Saka regularly played in top matches and Saka even shined in the European Cup when he scored 1 goal and assisted the other 2 in the victory over Frankfurt in the round.
