In the aftermath of Liverpool’s Europa League encounter with LASK, Ian Doyle provides an analysis highlighting Jarell Quansah’s impressive performance.
Despite a disallowed goal in a previous match, Quansah showcased solid defending and composure, making his sixth start of the breakthrough campaign. On the defensive side, concerns arise about Ibrahima Konate, who, although starting, displays rustiness and room for improvement.
In the midfield, the ‘midweek’ team seizes opportunities, with Harvey Elliott, Ryan Gravenberch, and Wataru Endo making their mark. Gravenberch’s dynamic style is noteworthy, but Elliott’s impressive display stands out, emphasizing his impact throughout the campaign.
The midfield dynamics and Szoboszlai’s recent form provide Elliott a platform to press for a starting role in the upcoming Premier League match against Fulham.
Anfield’s unwelcoming atmosphere for away teams remains intact, despite Jurgen Klopp’s ambitious call for a famous European night. The Reds secure their tenth consecutive home win in a season, maintaining Anfield’s reputation as a fortress.
As the upper tier of the new Anfield Road stand reopens for the December 17 clash against Manchester United, the anticipation builds for more than 60,000 fans attending the last 16 of the Europa League in March, signaling the potential return of famous European nights.
