3 Things Liverpool Should Learn From Leicester City: Make Anfield A Fortress

Published

The story of Leicester City’s rise to dominance has not been less than a fairy-tale and the premiere league title will be the perfect reward for Claudio Ranieri’s side as they showcased brilliance and absolute class throughout the season. The big guns of English football share a lot of respect for the Ranieri’s side as they transformed themselves from an underdog to title contenders. Leicester have already booked a place in next year’s Champions league and sit with a comfortable lead of seven points at the top of the table. The big clubs need to learn a lot from them and here are the three things that Liverpool should learn from Leicester City.

Klopp

Be Fearless and Consistent

Leicester City have demonstrated fearless attacking football against the likes of some of the biggest clubs in Europe. They have not had a defensive approach in the big games and have always tried to outplay their opponents on a front foot. But it’s not just the display against the big sides that makes them remarkable. Leicester have shown enough consistency against sides who are at the bottom of the league table and have made every game count. A combination of being fearless and consistent is what makes them standout. Liverpool have shown their class in the big games this season but somewhere they could not manage the consistency of results leading to a loss of many crucial points.

Make Anfield a Fortress

Leicester have been excellent when it comes to their record at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes have had just one loss out of their 16 games at home and have gathered a massive sum of 35 points from these games. Liverpool on the contrary, have not had a good season in terms of their performances at Anfield. The Reds managed to win only six out of their 15 games so far and have managed only 24 points. If Liverpool are to win the title next season, they need to make Anfield their fortress and manage maximum points possible.

A Team wins – not an individual player

Although Jamie Vardy has been outstanding for the Foxes this season, but the success of their team would not have been possible without the contribution of the consistent midfield and the steady defence. This learning is important for every other club but Liverpool in particular should make a note of this aspect of Leicester’s game. This season, Liverpool relied a lot on Coutinho and his contributions in some of the crucial games were brilliant. But Jurgen Klopp will definitely try and make the entire team a cohesive unit.
