A Fitting Understudy - Trent Alexander-Arnold

A Fitting Understudy - Trent Alexander-Arnold

Every player remembers making their first start in the Premier League, but few get to experience such an occasion in the manner Trent Alexander-Arnold did. The lack of depth in the full back positions for Liverpool was one of the major concerns heading into the season. With James Milner filling in at the back, Alberto Moreno is one of the only natural left backs at the club and the fact that he’s hardly covered himself in glory only emphasises Liverpool’s …
Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

Stick or Twist? | Liverpool's January Window

There have been huge developments at the club over the last year or so, sparked by the arrival of Jurgen Klopp. In the midst of his first full season in charge, the Reds are the closest challengers to current Premier League leaders Chelsea, taking a total of 44 points from 20 games and are just five points behind Conte’s side. Despite claims that there is little value in the January window, Liverpool have proven in recent times that gems can be found …
The Running Man - Adam Lallana

The Running Man - Adam Lallana

While fatigue will certainly have taken its toll on several Premier League teams during the gruelling Christmas fixtures, one man seems completely unaffected by it all...one Adam Lallana. The England international covered a total of 13.22km in the 2-2 draw with Sunderland, recording 12.88km in the win against Manchester City just two days before. Both distances were the highest ran by any Liverpool player in the Premier League during the Bank Holiday weekend. Despite struggling under Brendan Rodgers’ tutelage, Adam …
No Mane - Can We Cope?

No Mane - Can We Cope?

Liverpool have enjoyed an impressive season so far and Sadio Mane has been at the heart of it. Few could have envisioned the magnitude of his impact when he completed a £30million summer switch from Southampton. All the questions that were initially raised about the investment have been well and truly answered, with the forward slotting in perfectly to Klopp’s side. Featuring in all but one of Liverpool’s 20 Premier League games, Mane has registered nine goals and five assists …
Liverpool 1 Manchester City 0 - Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 Manchester City 0 - Player Ratings

Liverpool's 1-0 victory over Manchester City was a big step in their title bid, confirming the progress they have made this season. Simon Mignolet - 7 Did well when called upon and kept Liverpool ticking with his distribution. Not much to complain about since he took up the reigns from Karius. Nathaniel Clyne - 7 Clyne is perhaps one of the most underrated members of the squad. He has made a real difference down the right-hand side and did so against …
Georginio Wijnaldum: Ruthlessly Efficient

Georginio Wijnaldum: Ruthlessly Efficient

When Georginio Wijnaldum signed for a fee of £25 million, many saw him to be another attacking midfielder within the side, raising questions about what he could bring to the table given the current array of talent already at Klopp’s disposal. During his Newcastle days, Wijnaldum’s form was hugely inconsistent. Dipping in and out of games, he struggled to show his qualities on a week in week out basis. However, since moving to Anfield we have seen a completely different …
Everton 0 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Everton 0 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool left it late to snatch all three points in the Merseyside Derby, with Sadio Mane capping his first appearance in the fixture with a decisive goal. Daniel Sturridge was the orchestrator, letting fly from outside the Everton box only for the ball to come off the post, where Mane was on hand for an easy tap in. The Senegalese international has hit the ground running since his summer move and his stoppage time winner will have endeared him to …
Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

Roberto Firmino: A New Breed of Striker

While not a natural striker, Roberto Firmino has been at the heart of everything good from Liverpool this season, grabbing the plaudits on a continual basis. Jurgen Klopp’s description of the Brazilian as nothing short of a bargain is therefore hardly surprising. Slow Start Arriving for a fee of £29million, Firmino initially seemed to struggle at Anfield. Deployed out wide, the Brazilian found it hard to make a consistent impact on games, only showing rare flashes of what we could later …
The Race to Be Liverpool's Number One

The Race to Be Liverpool's Number One

Simon Mignolet has been heavily criticised throughout his time at Liverpool, displaying inconsistency and a distinct lack of confidence leading to defensive errors. The Belgian is far from the calming and influential figures of Petr Cech, David De Gea and Hugo Lloris and with the new signing of Loris Karius, could Jurgen Klopp finally have run out of patience with the much maligned keeper? Background Having come through the youth ranks at Stuttgart, Karius spent two years at Manchester City as …
Europa League Final Preview: Liverpool vs Sevilla

Europa League Final Preview: Liverpool vs Sevilla

Liverpool face Sevilla in the Europa League final in Basel on Wednesday night, with a place in the Champions League next season the prize for the winners. Since arriving at the club, Jurgen Klopp has placed great importance on the competition, due in part to a disappointing Premier League performance this year. The Reds finished eighth in the table, their lowest position since 2012 and thus they will miss out on European football altogether unless they win against Sevilla, the …
