Bright Future: Liverpool are a team of players still yet to hit peak age

“There was a stark reminder of just how young Liverpool’s current squad is when the players headed towards the Kop, hand-in-hand, saluting supporters after their 2-2 stalemate with West Bromwich Albion. Apart from Martin Skrtel and James Milner, the other nine players who embraced the Reds’ supporters at Anfield last weekend were largely fresh-faced and youthful, still learning their trade in the game. Jordon Ibe (20), Divock Origi (20), Roberto Firmino (24), Alberto Moreno (23) and Emre Can (21) were amongst the line of players who greeted fans after the full-time whistle, all of whom are under the age of 25.” Squawka

Tactical Analysis – Liverpool 2 WBA 2
“Klopp made only three changes following the midweek Europa League clash with Sion. None was a surprise, with Moreno and Benteke replacing Smith and Origi and Coutinho, coming back from injury, replacing Firmino who was given the break his recent displays suggested he is in great need of. Pulis’ WBA presented even less of a surprise in their starting XI. Gardner was expectedly chosen to replace the injured Sessegnon down the right flank. This was the only change as although Yacob was in line to make his comeback following a one-game suspension, he had to miss the game due to compassionate leave for bereavement. As such Olsson remained at centre-back with Evans ahead as the team’s defensive midfielder.” Tomkins Times
