LCFC vs Man City - Match Thread - 03/04/2021 (Sky Sports)

Recommended Posts

If we're playing 2/3 up top we need to get the ball up to them quicker.

 

We are massively out numbered and out skilled in midfield so why try and play through the midfield?

Don’t know why people are slagging Pérez when the normally ever reliable Tielemans is having a far worse game!

Not slagging him, just need to change things to give them something different to think about.

First team to have clocked that putting two men on Youri pretty much stops us playing.

Rodri and Fernandinho are decent box to box midfielders as well. So it keeps that midfield locked down.

Can Kasper please just boot one-up for Vardy to chase, these little chip clearances are going to Man City every time. Just smash it.

As kasper dinks it into no mans land in the middle of the park

Because he is the easy scapegoat

In fairness, I don’t think we’ve been that bad. Offered nothing offensively, but I’d expect that in this type of game.

This is the crucial issue. 2 up top means outnumbered in midfield. Rogers will be desperate to get another defensive midfielder on there and I bet he's thinking of achieving that by taking Iheanacho off and going 1 up front.

Training session for Man City

Yeah - any idea how hard Pep makes them work during these?

 

So are we. They're pressing relentlessly - no reward for them yet. We will push up ourselves and test them before this match is done, irrespective of the result.

Kasper giving the ball away to that diving cheating guy. He HAS to come and claim that ball that Amartey passes back. It was rolling in our box for so long he should have been on it surely?

he’s so stuck to his line, crosses corners everything.

im glad someone else picked up on this, such an easy ball to come and claim aswell

Youri has been wonderful recently but he has given the ball away a good few times today.

 

Still, this sets him up for the no look pass 2nd half for Vardy's winner.

The best way to play against these is to try and contain them and hit them on the counter. We score 1 on the counter, they have to come at us and we'll get more chances. We'd all take a draw, it would be a great result. Get to HT at 0-0 and we've got a chance of getting something.

 

It'd be a lot different if we had Barnes on the pitch, he'd give them something to think about on the counter.

We're not even looking for the counter Kel and Vardy virtual passengers, Perez not good enough to break the Man City press.
