Left-Back: Liverpool's Achilles Heel
Once again, it was a lucky comeback, and an unlucky Wigan go home pointless. I wonder how much longer we can ride our luck? One thing is for sure, with Chelsea playing us on the weekend it is time to get rid of our slow starts once and for all, for if there has been any more impressive team than them in all of Europe so far this season, I have yet to see them play.
If I were Scolari, I'd be telling Bosingwa to get forward as much as he can to take advantage of the weakness of Dossena/Aurelio. The latter has had time and it is probably fair to call him a failure, but Dossena has just arrived and I will suspend judgement on him till later in the season. Unfortunately, Liverpool do not have other options to utilise in the meantime. Thus far, Rafa has shown that he is aware of his frailties by not playing Dossena in the 'bigger' matches but it's not like Aurelio has cut it against the top sides as well. Teams are scoring from our weak left flank-Middlesbrough, Wigan, Man Utd spring to mind very easily.
This is a major conundrum and I have no suggestions to offer as to how we can fix it up against Chelsea. One thing is for sure, I'll be a religious man for 90 minutes when we visit Stamford Bridge!
