Career Aaron attempts The Liverpool Front Three Challenge.


Recommended Posts

This challenge is very popular so I thought why not give it a go, it's only one season long and it was very enjoyable to do, I just went head on into it without testing as I just needed something to sink my teeth into for a few hours, here's how I got on:





  • We win the League unbeaten with 106 points and a GD of 95
  • Lost 1-0 to Man City in the Community Shield, wiping out a potential clean sweep on day one 😠
  • Comfortably won the CWC as to be expected, we won 8-0 in the SF and 4-0 in the final
  • Beat Man City this time 2-0 in the EFL Cup
  • Beat Chelsea 2-0 in the UEFA Super Cup
  • Beat Atleti 1-0 AET in the CL, we couldn't take our chances, luckily a goal from Firmino was enough
  • Beat Man City 1-0 in the FA Cup, wrapping up the treble









Liverpool start off with four right footed CB's, this didn't sit right with me, so the inferior 2 of 4 (Matip and Lovren) were offloaded for 2 left footed CB's in Ake and Romagnoli, Zielinski came in to add more quality to the midfield, (tried to sign Brozovic first, but Spurs beat me to him) Schulz and Castagne come in as backup to Robertson and TAA and last but not least I brought Super Mario back to Anfield, Brewster just wasn't gonna cut it as backup to Firmino in the short space of time I had. 


The Shape:


Fairly standard setup, nothing too crazy, 2 CD's, 2 Wingbacks that provided the width, 2 CM's either side of a DLP, the front three Salah cuts in from the right, Mane cuts in from the left and Firmino playing as an AF (I did try Firmino as a DLF at first, but I quickly changed it, cause there was nobody stretching the defence and sniffing around the box for opportunities. 



A very strong defence this year, I played Attacking throughout the whole season and never changed it even in the middle of a match, so I find it quite interesting that our defence was so strong


The Front Three:




Mane: 28 goals, 28 assists= 56

Firmino: 39 goals, 12 assists= 51

Salah: 28 goals, 18 assists= 46


League Points: 106

League Goal Difference: 95




Final Score: 354


A trophy-ladened season with the main three contributing to a large percentage of the goals, very happy with how they performed and Ive found a tactic by accident that I really like, I've always liked the ones that have water tight defences while letting the attack do their thing. Super Mario Balotelli was stellar too as backup to Firmino. 


Really enjoyed this challenge, thank you @Rob, could you please add me to the leaderboard. 


P. S: I must have a left footed CB at left CB and a right footed CB at right CB, I don't know why I do it, it's sort of an OCD thing I have with this game🤷‍♂️

I've just noticed after looking back at the save, my 4 draws were against both Man City and Man Utd home and away, we beat everyone else in the league in both games, nothing special just a bit humorous to me 😊

Thanks @Ian, his selfish trait helped I think, even as an AF, who's supposed to score and assist, but Balotelli didn't fancy passing a lot of the time 😂, if he's gonna bury them in the back of the net, I'm fine with it 🤷‍♂️

Nice effort mate! It’s an enjoyable challenge for sure. Never signed Mario on the game this year, but he done the business for you.
