De Laet (circled) is said to be bitterly disappointed to have been axed by Stoke, with Tony Pulis looking to build a team of 11 players who are all over 6ft 7in or above in height, so Rory Delap can continue to hurl the ball into the box from throw ins
and air bombard to kingdom come.
It's up to Liverpool to neutralise their strengths at set plays and throw ins
and that means defending well, being well organised and not giving away stupid free kicks and unnecessary throw ins
So I'd like to see a time restriction imposed on taking these throw ins
You have to look at all the throw ins
and set-pieces being launched at him.
Both strikes came from long throw ins
that the Rovers defence failed to clear.
