Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Daniel Sturridge: Talent Plagued By Injury

Jurgen Klopp’s one word answer regarding Daniel Sturridge’s fitness after the disappointing 2-1 defeat to Crystal Palace provides the perfect summary of his Liverpool career. Injury stricken, the England international has been side-lined for a staggering 640 days since the 2011/12 season – the 9th worst record in the Premier League. It means he’s missed over 50% of Liverpool’s games since joining 3 and a half years ago. Making the move over to Merseyside in January 2013, Sturridge represented somewhat …

Old Habits Die Hard At The Back For Liverpool

Old Habits Die Hard At The Back For Liverpool

Two gritty wins away to Stoke and West Brom marked two giant leaps forward for Liverpool in their bid for Champions League football. Keeping out two teams that are renowned for being prolific from set-pieces, it seemed a major corner had been turned. However, it was old habits that died hard at Anfield on Sunday afternoon, with Liverpool falling back into their pattern of conceding very avoidable set-piece goals. Klopp's side showed a lack of authority and organisation, allowing Christian Benteke to head home …

Liverpool 1 - 2 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

It was a case of two steps forward and one step back for Liverpool, who's Champions League hopes took an almighty blow as Christian Benteke came back to haunt his old club. After a lacklustre opening to the game, Philippe Coutinho put the hosts in front with a stunning long-range free kick to seal his 10th goal of the season. It should have been 2-0 when Roberto Firmino squared the ball to an unmarked Emre Can but the German failed …
Gritty, Gutsy Reds Refusing To Falter In Quest For Top Four

Gritty, Gutsy Reds Refusing To Falter In Quest For Top Four

Stoke and West Brom were always going to be two tough games. With both sides renowned for their defensive attributes, coupled with Liverpool's inability to create space against teams who sit deep, Premier League rivals would have been licking their lips at the possibility of Klopp's side stumbling at the final hurdle. They'll have been left blissfully disappointed then, with Liverpool taking another giant step towards a return to the Champions League on Sunday. 1-0 down at Stoke with a more …

West Brom 0 Liverpool 1: Player Ratings

Disciplined, dogged and gritty. Those are probably the best three words to describe Liverpool's performance against West Brom. It was by no means the eye-catching, fluid football we've come to expect from Jurgen Klopp's side, but a moment of quality from Roberto Firmino was enough to seal another three points and bring The Reds a step closer to Champions League qualification. Simon Mignolet - 8 Had very little to do in between the sticks, but when he was called upon …

Observations from Liverpool's fight back to beat Stoke

Liverpool's starting eleven was indicative of a side battling several injuries to key players, with Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold replacing Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho in the side. The Brazilian pair have both been struggling of late with fitness and illness issues respectively. It was always going to be a tough game for the Reds but the lineup hardly filled fans with optimism going into a must-win game in the battle for a top four spot. That fear was …

Stoke City vs Liverpool Preview - Reds Hoping To Do The Double

Following their disappointing 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Wednesday night, Liverpool's weekend trip to the Britannia has added importance in the race for top four. Two points dropped at home is the last thing Jurgen Klopp would have wanted, with another golden opportunity to pull away from their rivals missed. With Arsenal and Manchester United having two games in hand on Liverpool, their Champions League fate is no longer entirely in their own hands. Three points is a must against …

Observations following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth

Here we are, yet again. For all their attacking prowess and verve, Liverpool's abysmal record against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League table never looked like changing against Bournemouth. An early mistake from Georginio Wijnaldum was indicative of the Reds' start, with the team wasteful and wayward in possession. Goals either side of half-time from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi seemed to have clawed Liverpool back into the driving seat and on their way to another precious …
New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

New Deal For Can? It's A No Brainer

Starting 46 games last season, Emre Can was tipped to have an extensive and successful career at Anfield. He was Klopp’s go-to man, running games in the number 6 role by injecting drive and energy to help push Liverpool towards a Capital One Cup and Europa League final. This campaign, however, has seen Can’s career stall alarmingly, with the 23-year-old struggling to establish himself as a key member of the squad. A Stuttering Season Turning Good? Emre Can has divided opinions this season …
