Rebuilding At Anfield Showing Signs Of Success

By on November 1, 2011

Things are beginning to take shape at Liverpool following the 2-0 victory at the Hawthorn’s on Saturday.

Andy Carroll had his best game for the Reds since joining in January for a crazy fee. He looks to finally have coped with the huge expectations and demands placed on him and has begun to play his natural game as a versatile forward who can create chances for his strike-partner Luiz Suarez, hold the ball up for his team-mates and, crucially, score a goal. His all-round performance was key to Liverpool seeing off Roy Hodgson’s limited side.

Jordan Henderson too is improving, he is beginning to link-up better with his team-mates and he is growing into the role on the right-side of midfield.

Charlie Adam did well to calmly put away the 9th minute penalty, even though he has yet to produce a commanding midfield display for a full game, he is improving and is always a threat from set-plays and running at defenders.

After the stunning 4-0 defeat against Spurs and the unlucky League loss to Stoke 1-0, we are now on a seven match unbeaten run in all competitions, which is a pretty decent record.

We lie in 6th place behind Spurs who won on Sunday, though we are only 1 point behind Chelsea in fourth. It’s early days yet in the Premiership with only ten games played, so alot can change between now and the end of the season. Expect a strong challenge from Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool from now on.

An Ankle Infection: Does Steve Gerrard have a swollen ankle or is it an abscess? I have had surgery on an abscess and it cleared up in four days, so maybe our Captain will be back in the team sooner rather than later.

Next up: Swansea at home
