Liverpool Form and Team News

It’s a known fact that Liverpool were not at their best in the last season due to injury worries all year around. But losing to Real Madrid in the quarterfinal would have been a hard pill to swallow considering they were held to a stalemate in the second home leg. Liverpool so far have been ok to say nonetheless but have they really asserted their dominance in the league, the answer is a ‘NO’. They won against Leeds but drew against arch-rivals Chelsea. Liverpool in the last season were unfortunately troubled by a lot of injuries to key players and that in turn had a major effect in them not getting into the groove in any of the competitions they were part of, still managing to finish third in the points table is a great achievement. This attitude will help them in the tough matches they are going to be part of in the latter part.

Jurgen Klopp would hope for lesser injuries this season, and everything else would fall into place for the reds. The Salah, Mane, Firmino combo was not able replicate what they have been doing in the past seasons in the last season, but again this can be associated with Firmino’s regular injury breaks. Virgil is back and a major piece of the puzzle is sorted for Klopp with that, he missed the entirety of the last season and that showed in the defence as well, the reds can heave a sigh of relief.

Milan Form and Team News

Milan are back in the Champions League after eight long years and they couldn’t have asked for a better place to stamp their dominance. They are playing against Liverpool in an away fixture. Every group in the Champions League is a tough group, but group B is considerably tougher involving Atl. Madrid, Porto and Liverpool. Milan have played three league games so far, winning all games comprehensively. They are placed in the second position as of now even though it’s very early. Milan in the last season was one of the most exciting teams and turned back the years on quite a few occasions. They were even topping the league in certain stages of the season only to concede that to eventual champions Inter ending years of Juve dominance in Serie A.

Stefano Piolihas managed to show his influence in Italian football with these two seasons at the helm with Milan, Last season was one of the best for the Italian in terms of results garnered as well. Giroud has taken Italy by storm netting in two goals already. Tonali and Brahim Diaz have also managed to shake the inner netting once so far. The defense is where they should start working on and once that’s sorted, then Milan can go one position up from last season ending over ten years of wait for a league title. Zlatan has still not lit up the Milan games and even without that if Milan are playing well, we could be in for a real Milan show this season.
