The Premier League is one of the fastest leagues in the world. In fact in terms of sheer pace, it is the fastest. The game carries on end to end. However, it does not just stop there. The players also battle intensely and the game is immensely physical. Watch & Bet on Football =>

The Premier League sees players battle out physical tussles and at a fast pace, when all these tackles and pushes fly in, there can be serious mistimings on these clashes.

In fact this is the primary reason, why Premier League teams end up with so many more red cards which are not intentional injury to an opponent but rather a serious case of mistiming the foul on the opposition.

This happens a lot in the Premier League and hence one of the new techniques being adopted by teams is possession football. The big teams have technical players who can hold on to the ball longer and thereby have to make less tackles and less fouls leading to fewer cards.

Teams like Manchester City and Chelsea last season did this and the result was there for everyone to see. However, Liverpool adopted a different approach.

Ever since the arrival of Jurgen Klopp at Anfield, the idea has been to introduce his rock and roll style of football. Geggenpressing, the style of football invented and perfected and implemented by Klopp has seen Liverpool change from a passive mid table team to a threatening title challenger with great pressure on every opponents.

Liverpool press relentlessly and endlessly, starting from their front three to the backline. This sees them leave in a lot of space behind in between the defence and the goalkeeper and hence the arrival of powerful and pacey defenders like Andy Robertson and Virgil Van Dijk has seen the whole game change for the Reds.

They have made fewer fouls and more timed tackles despite the game being played in lightning speed at Anfield. Liverpool are now one of the most dangerous teams in Europe but are also extremely well disciplined despite flying in on high intensity tackles.

As long as Klopp will stay at Anfield, we can expect them to play this way, one of the hardest ways to play fast and yet not concede pointless cards which can damage the team.

However, as age catches on, players like Dejan Lovren, Jordan Henderson will find it hard to keep up with this style of play. These guys are not so fast and hence they always find themselves a couple of paces behind the opponent leading to crunching risky tackles which can earn them send off cards.

Also there are players like Milner whose job description in the team is to get dirty and win balls or make fouls to stop opponents in dangerous areas. This leaves them also extremely prone to red cards and send offs.

Let’s see how Liverpool deal this season with their style of play and the cards they might get dished out. Watch & Bet on Football =>
