After a first half that reminded us of the first dates of the Premier League, with Everton as the leader, in the second half the Liverpool team again exposed the failures in defense that always put them to row against, and that this time they did not They had serious consequences for the result, which against Fulham was a 2-3 final for the ‘toffees’.

The logical signal, again, has been Yerry Mina, as he was involved in the two goals of the London team. In the first, he lost in speed against the attacker who let him see him slow and without positioning; and in the second, he carelessly deflected a ball he was meant to contain.

Carlo Ancelotti notices it. At the end of the game, the taste was not entirely sweet due to the team’s defense work, contrary to the high level shown by the midfield team forward, being explosive, creative and effective: “Really satisfied. It was a difficult match. In the end, we got the winning goal. We had a fantastic first half, but in the second we had difficulties ”, Ancelotti said at a post-match press conference.

“We try to be a little more compact in the middle of defense, we have to work on that. The system gives us the possibility to use more of the field of play, if we make opportune centers with Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Richarlison in the area, we are dangerous ”, added in clear allusion to the Colombian central, who shared the line of 3 with Godfrey and Keane.

Once again, Mina is criticized for her placement in the figure of the ‘Mister’, which has to do with leaving at the wrong time, getting disorderly, gathering too much or not grouping together to defend, a fault that has also been shown in the Colombia Selection match in the first date of the last round of playoffs.

Despite the 365 Score portal, Mina was given an acceptable 7.0 out of 10, while Godfrey was cut with the lowest rating.
