Liverpool will be the champion like Chelsea’s Mourinho?

A hard-fought victory over rookie Sheffield United in Round 7 of the Premier League helped Liverpool to do the proud thing that it has been 29 years before they achieved it.

In front of Jurgen Klopp’s teachers and students is a record that they are about to balance, even surpassing Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea.

The trip to the newly promoted Sheffield United team in the earliest match in Liverpool’s Round 7 of the 2019/20 Premier League was not as easy as many people have imagined. The visitors needed to catch a volley close to the 16m50 line between Georginio Wijnaldum and especially the mistake of missing goalkeeper Dean Henderson on the opponent’s side to win 1-0 to leave Bramall Lane with 3 points entirety.

Although only lowering the rookie team with the minimum difference and unable to increase the gap by 5 points with the second team Man City (just won Everton 3-1) but the top team Liverpool can still be satisfied with the historic milestone that they just achieved.

The “Merseyside Red Brigade” has won its first 7 rounds in a season in the 2nd English league in history and the first time in 29 years since the 1990/91 season (that season, Liverpool even won in the first 8 matches in the season).

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool is only a record away from Chelsea’s record of exactly 2 wins. Earlier, in the 2005/2006 season, “The Blues” under the guidance of former coach Jose Mourinho had a series of 9 consecutive wins in the Premier League.

In the 2005/06 season, Chelsea won the Premier League, and was even crowned early in the hopeless pursuit of the runner-up team then MU. This year, Liverpool are expected to follow that “king’s way” of West London team to help them break the curse that has never ascended to the top of the English Premier League era (from 1992 to present).

Liverpool also won Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane for the first time. Previously, since August 2006, “The Kop” has never won in this field after 3 matches here.

Bramall Lane also became the 56th field that Liverpool marched to play here and won against their rivals in the English Premier League. Currently there are only 2 home yards of Premier League rivals that the “Merseyside Red Brigade” has never won are City Ground (Nottingham Forest, 5 matches) and Bloomfield Road (Blackpool, 1 game).

Defeat Liverpool is the affirmation of Napoli in Europe

In recent seasons, Napoli has always shown weakness in the Champions League, especially in decisive matches. Defeats to Shakhtar Donetsk under Maurizio Sarri 2017-18, or to Paris Saint-Germain and Red Star Belgrade last year showed that.

However, a convincing victory over defending champion Liverpool in the opening match of the Champions League this season showed another Napoli. A Napoli that changed the way of seeing the surname of the football experts and the fans of Partenopei himself. Napoli has shown they are no longer afraid to meet the big boys, a sign that Carlo Ancelotti finally infused the Champions League charm into his players.

The launch of an attacking squad also proves Ancelotti is willing to risk attacking, including in front of an opponent like Liverpool, and the positive thing is that Napoli did exactly what the former Milan coach asked. Only through the match against Liverpool in San Paolo yesterday morning, Ancelotti has shown that he is the most suitable person to take Napoli far in the Champions League. It is worth recalling that, in addition to winning the Champions League with Milan and Real Madrid three times, Ancelotti has beaten Liverpool 4 times with 4 different teams 4 times.

With the appropriate additions, Napoli finally got the squad depth needed to fight in both Serie A and the Champions League. In Ancelotti’s 4-4-2 diagram, the attacking duo Dries Mertens – Hirving Lozano moved very wide and flexible, enabling the two wingers Jose Callejon – Lorenzo Insigne to roam freely. Even when replacing Lozano with Fernando Llorente, Ancelotti’s Napoli still maintained the threat to Liverpool goal, and the 34-year-old veteran was the goalscorer who set up a 2-0 victory.

Llorente is the perfect backup plan to help Tottenham advance to the final last season and that is why Ancelotti brought the Spanish striker to San Paolo. Llorente possessed the instincts of an assassin, and although he was a substitute, he was still Ancelotti’s important card. Of course, when completely healed, Arkadiusz Milik is still No.1 striker of Napoli.

In the middle, rookie Eljif Elmas is also a strategic card for Ancelotti even just coming on from the bench. The 19-year-old Macedonian midfielder only played the last 15 minutes against Liverpool when replacing Allan but still showed a lot, especially the ability to pass the ball and reduce pressure on the midfield between Napoli.
