Liverpool FC are one of the best counter attacking teams in the world right now with blistering pace on the transition from the front three Mane, Salah & Firmino plus with last season they had Countinho as well!

Once they regain the ball they are excellent at making the first pass to retain possession & directly playing forward into the front three.

As a team they can be deemed more dangerous when out of possession than when with the ball at their disposal.

Another key feature seen towards the end of this video is the intensity they press with on losing the ball & then creating goalscoring opportunities.

Teams are now becoming very cautious in their attacking approach because of how good Klopps Liverpool are on the break. They will sometimes play with an extra holding midfielder or keep one of the full backs alongside the centre backs.

The key question is: How do you prevent your team being exposed on the counter attack? We would love to hear your thoughts on all of our social media accounts!
