Best Performance of 2019

What a Game Reds, What a game!

Perfection on the pitch, is what Liverpool delivered against Leicester at King Power Stadium.

An impressive 0-4 Win For the reds put them away with 13 points at the top of the table, 13.

The Reds' goals were scored by Roberto Firmino "double" and James Milner from the penalty spot and Alexander Arnold, in the 31st, 71, 74 and 78th minutes, respectively.

The match was a one-sided parade, at a time when the lhosts looked like alandlord in front of a landslide attack that no one could resist.

After 19 rounds of the Premier League, Liverpool collected 52 points and a game in hand, moving away from Leicester by 13 points.

Liverpool did everything perfectly against Leicester, the passes were intact and confident, as well as relieving the pressure quietly and smoothly.

Liverpool did not change the usual 4-3-3 formation, and relied on a full core lineup.

The remarkable understanding between Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk continued deep in the back line, with the support of the duo Trent Alexander Arnold and Andy Robertson.

Jordan Henderson played the role of the pivot, giving freedom to the Dutch Georginio Wijnaldum and the Guinean Naby Keita to move forward, and participate in the attacks behind the trio Salah, Mane and Firmino.

Until Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson came off the field injured, The result was Liverpool's lead with a clean quartet, when Henderson suffered a foot injury following a joint game with Lester City Ayoze Perez, we have no update yet on the onjury, but Hendo looked in pain when leaving the field.

Everything went perfectly for Liverpool, and the Reds resorted to the usual high pressure on the opponent's defense, and did not give them any chance to advance forward, which led to the isolation of the Leicester attacjer JamieVardy throughout the first half.

It is important to note the advanced performance that Nabi Keita has performed in the midfield during the last period, but the stars of the duo Arnold and Firmino overshadowed anything else.

Arnold succeeded in making assists for two goals and scoring another, he also won the penalty for the Reds, and we will not exaggerate if we say that he is one of the best young players in the world, as he performs the offensive role perfectly and relieves any additional burdens on his teammates in defense.

Arnold has so far managed to give 17 assists in 32 games in the Premier League, 3 more than any other player.

As for Firmino, his last touch in front of the goal brings him envy, in light of Salah and Mane not being able to hit the wings in the required way.

There is not much to talk about for Leicester, the team was unable to own the ball, and Vardy lived in isolation.

Johnny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu collapsed in front of Liverpool's sweeping high-pressing attack, and Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans lost the battle completely in midfield.

Reds players maintained their lead in the last minutes, and the referee blew the final whistle to make it an offcial 4-0 win and a 3 more points, to raise the gape to 13 points.

Arnold said after the game:

"We went through a difficult period, with match pressure. This must be taken into consideration, but perhaps this performance is the best for us this season."

And we do believe that this was indeed the best performance of 2019, and what a stronger message to send before the end of the year, other than beating the runner-up 4-0 AWAY.
