Liverpool and Arsenal shun defensive midfielders; creativity over destruction

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Craig Burley and Stuart Holden are in agreement the pressure is piled on Liverpool ahead of their Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth, with a clash against Arsenal looming.

The defensive midfielder is not a footballing dinosaur or dodo, a species consigned to extinction by the changing of the times. How could it be when Chelsea's Nemanja Matic is perhaps the most influential player of the season?

Yet it has no counterpart at two of the supposed elite: The defensive midfielder seems a dying breed at Liverpool and Arsenal. Matic highlights a philosophical divide in football. This summer Chelsea paid 21 million pounds to re-sign the man they sold for a sixth of that...

Three Points: Liverpool recover from bad week by beating Bournemouth

Markovic made the most of his wide role, scoring one goal and helping set up another.

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Two goals by Raheem Sterling, his first since mid-September, helped Liverpool find some respectability after a tough week. Three observations from Liverpool's 3-1 win at Bournemouth...

1. A green shoot of progress, but familiar problems too

A win, a chance to renew hostilities with Chelsea in the semifinals and a vastly improved performance across the board. There was much to please Brendan Rodgers on Tuesday night and yet well-known issues remain.

Player Ratings: Raheem Sterling powers Liverpool to Bournemouth win

The ESPN FC crew analyse Liverpool's Capital One Cup performance against Bournemouth and look ahead to their semifinal against Chelsea.

Liverpool moved into the semifinal of the Capital One Cup with a mostly commanding, occasionally nervous 3-1 win over Bournemouth.

It might not seem like much in the scheme of things but beforehand this was predicted as the least shocking potential "shock result" in years. Apart from a nervous 15 minutes in the second half Liverpool put such doom-laden talk to bed and often looked assured in possession with a cutting edge rarely seen all season.

Raheem Sterling looked more confident in the striker's...

New Sterling role could spell end to Liverpool's attacking issues

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers hails Raheem Sterling's performance against Bournemouth

In the absence of the persistently injured Daniel Sturridge and the departed Luis Suarez, this season has been a struggle for Liverpool as manager Brendan Rodgers chops and changes from week to week in an effort to find a way of coping without last season's two best players. And while there is a pressing need to replace the goals they scored, his defence, too, are providing even greater cause for concern.

It hasn't really been clear at any stage of the season what kind of tactic or philosophy...

Pep Guardiola's interest in Raheem Sterling may ruin Rodgers' Christmas

ESPN FC analyst Craig Burley breaks down how Liverpool's formation and Manchester United's clinical finishing and goalkeeping led to a 3-nil win for the Red Devils at Old Trafford.
Contract negotiations with Liverpool are underway, but Raheem Sterling's head might be turned by Bayern Munich...

Some people think the festive season is about counting down December's days until Christmas morning, but we all know the real fun begins on Jan. 1 -- keep connected with all the build-up with Transfer Talk...

Bayern shock for Sterling?

There's little Christmas cheer to be had at Liverpool, and what's left is presumably going on Mario Balotelli's next inevitable escapade. Still, Anfield fans will be suitably heartened to learn that Brendan Rodgers is "sure" 20-year-old talisman Raheem Sterling will...

Liverpool should be wary of upset risk Bournemouth present

ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno, Craig Burley and Stuart Holden are in agreement the pressure is piled on Liverpool ahead of their Capital One Cup match against Bournemouth, with a clash against Arsenal looming.

Liverpool fans were more than happy to be matched up with Championship side Bournemouth when the draw for the Capital One Cup quarterfinals was made a few weeks ago. The mood has changed somewhat since and it seems few people would be surprised if Brendan Rodgers' men came unstuck on the south coast against Eddie Howe's high flyers.

Confidence is in short supply at Anfield right now, but at least they know what to expect having beaten Bournemouth in the FA Cup back in January. The 2-0 scoreline...
