Europa League Is Important

Europa League Is Important

 

 

Many teams don’t rate the Europa League very highly, and many teams who have worked hard to qualify for it the previous season, look as if they want out of it as soon as possible with the team selections they make.

 

 

Liverpool will be the same to a certain extent, as I don’t see Gerrard and Suarez and maybe a few others featuring much in this year’s competition, maybe until the latter stages, if Liverpool get there.

 

 

But with the large squad that Liverpool have, I feel the competition will be so valuable to keep players match fit, and will also give some of the younger squad members some great experience.

 

 

Last season was a strange season with Liverpool not featuring in Europe, so this year will be a bit more interesting with the extra competition of the Europa League to participate in.

 

 

OK so it’s not the Champions League but the European experience will serve as a good apprenticeship for many of the youngsters that I am sure will get a chance from Brendan Rodgers.

 

 

The likes of Raheem Sterling, Martin Kelly, Flanagan, Robinson and Adam Morgan but to name a few, could very well feature along with experienced players in these matches.

 

Liverpool continue their Europa League journey tonight in Edinburgh against Hearts who won last seasons’ Scottish Cup against city rivals Hibs.

 

 

A capacity crowd at Tynecastle will welcome Liverpool tonight in what could be a difficult game as Hearts will be pumped up for this “Battle Of Britain” match.

 

 

First team regulars Steven Gerrard, Martin Skrtel, Luis Suarez and Glen Johnson have been rested for the trip north as Liverpool have one eye on Sunday’s match at Anfield against Manchester City.

 

 

But Liverpool has still sent a strong squad to face Hearts, with the likes of Andy Carroll, Daniel Agger, Charlie Adam and Pepe Reina travelling along with some of the youngsters.

 

 

Liverpool should be too strong for the Scottish Cup holders and if they manage to overcome them, then they will qualify into the group stages of the Europa League.

 

 

Liverpool will also be looking to bounce back from last weekend’s mauling at West Brom, as Brendan Rodgers and his team will hope for a confidence booster ahead of a very tough run of fixtures starting against Manchester City on Sunday.

 

 

So progression in the Europa League is vitally important for many reasons, as success in these games can boost confidence for League matches, and the squad will all get game time.

 

 

First things first and hope for a good performance and result from the Redmen tonight.

    Excellent overview of the Europa League. It’s very handy for the youngsters and to keep the whole squad ticking over to get everyone up to match fitness. Good win for the reds as well tonight. Hope the big boys can come back sunday and make it our first win of the league season. YNWA
