“This left an interesting tactical battle as both sides were playing with pretty much the same shape. Liverpool were asymmetrical due to the fact that Henderson roamed in the area between the centre of midfield and the right wing; Downing hugged the left touchline like a traditional winger. Up front the team nominally had two forwards, but neither played as an out-and-out striker. Both showed great fluid movement throughout the match – either Suarez dropped deep and moved wide, or Carroll came back a little with his back to the goal to pick up the ball and drag Everton’s defenders out of their comfort zones.”
