Leicester 2 - Liverpool 0, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

DATE: 19.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

City looked troubled in the first half, but Mr Klopp made things easier for Shakespeare and his men, taking off Philippe Coutinho after just 45 minutes, he was the dominating player on the field

Winning football games can sometimes be difficult and the way you do it is also a bit different from time to time, but seeing a manager of the oppostion giving your club a big present, makes this a strange afternoon of football.

Liverpool dominated the first half in a way that you would believe they should have been four goals up, but in some way City's defence with Morgan and Dragovic in the middle, managed to keep the goal score zero zero after first half.

City defended well, but up front they had no real chances and Ben Hamer, who was in goal this afternoon, must be regarded as the best City player in the first 45 minutes, dong no errors.

Liverpool kept their pressure early on in the 2nd half as well, without Coutinho on the field. Then something strange happened after Leo Ulloa headed away a corner, he goes to the ground and looks shaken and dizzy.

He can't continue playing and Shakespeare decides to put on Shinji Okazaki. Okazaki makes an instant impact and his way of style and work is a bit different to Ulloa, so City manage to get more into the game.

Shinji is very much involved and after 65 minutes he combines well with Iborra and his shot, who is deflected by a Liverpool player, gets the right push and slides in behind Liverpool goalkeeper on the day, Danny Ward.

A great goal and just minutes after being in real trouble, everything goes in City's direction and they are 1-0 up. Liverpool becomes trying harder and harder to score, and City gets the counter attacks.

Demarai Gray have a number of oppertunities and his pace is a real treath to the Liverpool defence, and then in the 78 minute islam Slimani is played free, makes a great move forward and scores with a curle on the ball, straight in the left side corner of goals, fantastic.

You must say that this was a hard working battle and a City team without Vardy, Mahrez and Maguire makes the most out of this clash and City are through to the next round of the EFL Cup.

Impressive attandances, more than 31 000 at King Power for an EFL cup fixture.

Positives:
Solid defensively, hard battling defence
Chilwell looked fantastic, England class, taking Oxlade Chamberlain totally out of the game, City's best player
Scoring two goals with limited amount of chances
A good excercise for players who are not always playing week in and week out
Managing to turn the game around in the 2nd half, good work ethic
Hamza Choudhury getting his first team debut in a match that counts
Shakespeare making good and understandable changes, and Okazaki especially makes the team better

Negatives
Difficult first half, no real chances made
