All 3 of them have performed brilliantly well in the past matches, earning ample plaudits for their heightened showmanship. Albeit Strerling’s form seems overshadowed by Suarez and Sturridge kicked goals, yet Raheem’s pass to Swansea last time was undoubtedly world class.
Coutinho (Philippe) has been pretty impressive as well & so is Jordan Henderson. Despite being young, Henderson has really worked hard to prove his worth in the Red squad.

Barcelona manager Gerardo Martino has heaped with the praise on his counterpart Diego Simeone at Atletico Madrid by saying that he has been more impressive than he has. Martino took charge of Barcelona in the summer and he has guided the club to the top of the table, albeit on goal difference. Atletico Madrid have been the surprise package of the season, as they have been able to keep pace with Barcelona despite being on a shoestring budget. Many expected the good start to the campaign to not last for Atletico Madrid but they have defied expectations so far.
Simeone is considered as a legend at Atletico Madrid after doing well during his playing days. He has moulded the team in his image and they are extremely hard-working. They have been able to consistently outperform their opponents to win 16 out of the 18 matches played so far. They have an identical record to that of Barcelona with the only difference coming in number of goals scored. Barcelona have scored five more goals than Atletico Madrid, but the latter have a much better defensive record.
Despite being top of the table, Martino has come under criticism for trying to change Barcelona’s style of football. He reckons that Simeone’s achievements are far better than his are.
“I think what Diego Simeone has done at Atletico Madrid is far more impressive than what I’ve done here. You have to consider the squad I have got and considering how far Cholo’s side have come on since he first arrived there. Is it hard to choose a team with the squad I have to choose from? If I have a problem with this squad, imagine what the rest of the coaches must think! My position is much easier,” said Martino, whose team next face Atletico Madrid in the league.12.24.13
