Former Dortmund & Premier League midfielder identifies Liverpool’s “weakest links”

Category: Uncategorized

The centre-back pairing of Mamadou Sakho and Dejan Lovren is a weak link in Liverpool which Borussia Dortmund can exploit, Steffen Freund has told Sky Sports.

The Reds host Jurgen Klopp’s former club at Anfield on Thursday, having earned a valuable 1-1 draw in last week’s Europa League quarter-final first leg in Germany.

Borussia Dortmund are the favourites to win the Europa League. In all honestly, the German giants are too good to be in Europe’s sidekick competition.

They face the second-best team in England tonight in the first leg of their last 16 tie. Well, sort of.

Tottenham Hotspur may be second in the Premier League, but manager Mauricio Pochettino has certainly not picked his Premier League team this evening. Far from it!

With no Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Harry Kane or Mousa Dembele in his starting XI, Pochettino is relying on Nacer Chadli to lead the line.

That’s not the worst of it though!

Ryan Mason and Tom Carroll will ...
