FIFA 20: Top 5 attacking teams in the game
The Reds are a strong side when it comes to attacking with pace and finesse. The 2018-19 UEFA Champions League holders have great attacking talents and a young and skilled group of players who support the team well. At the moment, Liverpool is probably one of the most dangerous counter-attacking team in the world.
Liverpool plays a 4-3-3 formation with slight modifications to it. The attacking line-up of the team is comprised of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. Playing on the left flank, Mane is a big danger to the opposition with his dribbling and quick change of direction. Firmino is the perfect example of a modern-day false 9 who can play deep in the midfield but also dribble past players to assist or score a goal. Lastly, Salah has tremendous pace and dribbling prowess. The Egyptian has already proven his worth with the number of goals he has scored in the last two seasons of EPL.
It is difficult to criticise the Liverpool midfield because they work tirelessly to press the opposition and win possession high up the pitch. While the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain may not be the most skilled or talented, they work as a team and a vital to Liverpool's successes. Apart from Liverpool’s attacking players, full-backs Andy Robertson and Treant Alexander-Arnold are great attacking threats when they play as secondary wingers. Both are intelligent with an eye for good passes and have can float dangerous crosses on demand.Published 30 Oct 2019, 13:33 IST
