Liverpool Vs Wigan: Match Preview
12/02/2011 § Leave a comment
Calling the victory at Stamford Bridge last Sunday simply ‘morale-boosting’ would be a gross understatement. The victory was an exercise in tactical brilliance from the King and more than just a bit of help from the man who mastered several a ‘buses in front of goal’ for Chelsea not too long ago. It was a resounding victory and winning four games on the trot does signal that there is a bit of momentum going on for our team and it will be lovely if the amazing bandwagon continues to roll on.
Liverpool host Wigan on Sunday which is sure to be an intriguing game. Liverpool have a pretty poor record against Wigan and if one sees the goals that have been scored in the past few games they would probably be credited to some pretty hapless defending on our part. But of course, with four clean sheets in four games, the defence that was all too awkward not so long ago is a showcase of solidarity.
Whispers about Skrtel and Gerrard’s unavailability have been doing rounds, not to mention the new addition to the doctor’s table, Jonjo Shelvey. So it remains to be seen what surprise King Kenny springs on this Wigan team. Dalglish has shown that he is more than willing to experiment with new formation and places great trust with the team members so we might be in for another bit of tactical brilliance.
Suarez ideally ought to start with either Kuyt or Meireles playing somewhere behind him. There is no justifiable reason to drop anyone else from the team that played Chelsea, so I’m expecting that much of the same team will be starting this game as well.
