Things Looking Grim For United Game

By on March 1, 2011


Kenny Dalglish’s Liverpool face up to Man Utd at Anfield on Sunday at 1.30 pm with several injury problems. Martin Kelly is definately out for at least a month following the hamstring injury he picked up in our defeat at West Ham.

Raul Miereles, our chief goal-getter of late, is also a major doubt after picking up a knee injury on Sunday. Kyrgiakos and Daniel Agger are also doubts with head and groin injuries. Fabio Aurelio is also out with a groin strain.

It is unclear wether record-signing, Andy Carroll, will make his long-awaited debut for the Reds, he is still abit short on match-fitness. The biggest problem lies in our midfield. Teams have worked out how to play us, by flooding the centre with hard-working midfielders. If Kenny is to get the job full-time in the Summer then his priority must be a midfield enforcer.

The petulent Mascherano did a great job for us there, but, like Xabi Alonso, he hasn’t been properly replaced. We have a good defence and a potentialy great attack but we need shoring up in the midfield and young Lucas, improved as he has, he is still not the answer.

    I disagree with your comment that we have a good defence.

    Kelly excluded I don’t think any of the others would make it into the likes of Chelsea, Man U, or Arsenal.

    Carragher has a lot of heart and whilst he is still our brick at the back, throughout his career he has been prone giving away too many penalties and being in the wrong position too many times.

    Against Birmingham it was plain to see that Wilson is not good enough. Three at the back and yet the marking was terrible. A quality centre back is badly needed, then some proper wingers
