Yeah, I did notice how narrow Moreno was playing. You may be right that Jürgen was allowing Zapacosta that space on purpose ( and yeah he didn't do much with it, fortunately, in my opinion - although it is hard to take anybody with that moustache as a serious threat right enough).
However, while I quite like a lot of your analysis Danzel, you do have a tendency to put all of Alberto's little foibles down to Jürgen deliberately trying to entice the opposition to play down that side etc. Maybe he does, but, if so, I personally wish the f**k he wouldn't.
Did you notice Alberto is back to going out to close down crosses with his hands behind his back ( he's been doing that more and more recently). Jürgen's instructions too? Does my head in every time I see him do it.
Wasn't trying to put Moreno's foibles down to that mate. Was just trying to explain why our left side in this particular game wasn't really a problem and why Klopp didn't make changes earlier. I have no problem at all in pointing out flaws in his game or errors he has made during games. It's there for everyone to see though, we do quite often push sides to our left so he will always be under more pressure. Klopp obviously trusts him to deal with it. If Moreno then makes a mistake, that's on Moreno. Just the odds of him making a mistake are bigger than for example Gomez because Gomez is offered far more protection in front of him. He was sh*te against Sevilla, but I thought he rebounded really well against the Chavs on Saturday and had a good game, bar the one moment where he came flying in late in the second half.
I've noticed the hands behind his back thing too. He has always kept doing it, but it's happening more often again. I don't really have an issue with the hands behind the back, I see plenty of players doing it. The only issue I have with it is that he tends to completely turn away his body when trying to block rather than just standing up straight and trying to stay as 'big' as possible.
He was dragged off his line to cut off the angle but he's wandered a couple steps forward. If the ball by Willian was delivered to where he intended, Mignolet doesn't come across in time to save the resulting shot anyway. Morata being offside is irrelevant - if he was onside the same scenario would play out.
Poor marking by Gomez and Matip but that's not really impacting Mignolet is it? His eyes are focused on Willian. Regardless, once Mignolet gets in to the position he does, there's no way he is able to make up the ground to either a) stop the ball going over his head (as seen), or b) make a save should a Chelsea player connect with the cross.
How is Morata being offside irrelevant? Had the cross landed where Willian intended it to land, he would've been offside and the goal (had he scored) would've been disallowed. Even if Morata hadn't been the one scoring, it still would've been offside because he's clearly influencing the game from his offside position. Fully agree with regards to Gomez's position though, it's poor. He should've been level with Matip who moved slightly forward because Klavan moved out of position.
Coutinho was playing left wing at that point. Are you blaming our left winger for allowing the opposition attacker space in the middle of the pitch right in front of our box? Whose job is it to protect that area?
Coutinho wasn't playing left wing at that point. Here's a break down of the three minutes before we conceded:
82:10 - Willian comes on
82:33 - Klopp immediately reacts and wants to bring on Lallana
82:55 - Ball goes out of play, Klopp wants to make the change but it doesn't happen
(Apparently Achterberg was too late with the sub, Buvac was fuming) Buvac keeps hold off the bal for a few seconds trying to let the substitution happen and is giving instructions to Henderson.
83:12 - Klopp is signaling the new formation: 5-4-1
Coutinho who was up until that point indeed playing left forward, becomes part of the midfield four and is no longer playing as a left winger. Here's a view of the midfield four. The back five was already in place at that point. So in 20 seconds our formation completely changed.
84:05 - You see it again and there Coutinho is in the right position, a few seconds later however, when Milner clears the ball, he moves up the pitch way too high, leaving Wijnaldum isolated, who has to come inside when Henderson, inexcusably, has a horrendous touch, gifts Chelsea the ball and goes pressing. So at that point our left halfspace is wide open. That's a mistake by Henderson.
See where Coutinho should have been? I'm not blaming him for the goal at all, as Huyton Red said, Henderson should always either keep hold of the ball or play it to Milner. You were talking about the positioning of our midfielders and at that point, Coutinho was one of the midfielders and when the goal is scored, he is the only midfielder who is out of position. The center of the box was actually defended well. All of Hendeson, Milner and Wijnaldum are giving cover to the defence and pushing Hazard to play to Willian. Willian enters the box near its left corner where Klavan has to leave his position because the midfielder (Coutinho) who is supposed to be covering that area, is behind the play and out of position. So am I blaming him? No. Had he been able to help prevent the goal? Yes.
