Last Sunday was quite a match for Liverpool who led with a victory of 4-0. Liverpool executed profoundly and showed West Ham how it’s done until the very end. Every player showed proper execution, quality, and energy from the very beginning, which carried on throughout the match against West Ham.
The strategies Manuel Pelligrini brought with him from Manchester City to West Ham are one and the same, the only difference is that he was working with stronger players in Manchester City.
With West Ham’s defeat, people are questioning manager Manuel Pellegrini’s methods. Encountering a team like Liverpool won’t happen every week, but holding a high line won’t do it anymore, a change in tactics is utmost encouraged and must be developed.
