Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Mané's importance to the team has been clear right from the word go at Liverpool. Scoring 13 goals and registering seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances, the Senegalese international needed no bedding in period to make his mark at Anfield and establish himself as a fan favourite. A fiery goal on his competitive debut against Arsenal is testament to that, showing off his pace to cannon past the defence before smashing the ball into the corner. That was followed …

Jean Michael Seri: A Perfect Alternative To Naby Keita

With Liverpool coming up short in their pursuit of Naby Keita so far this summer, and any such deal looking increasingly unlikely to arise, for the time being at least, Liverpool have reportedly shifted their interest to Nice’s Jean Michael Seri. He’s a player that’s widely sought after across Europe, especially within the Premier League where Arsenal and Tottenham have shown prior interest. So then, just who is he and should Liverpool be focusing their efforts on acquiring his services? …

Observations as Liverpool edge ahead in first-leg against Hoffenheim

And breathe… It was a nervy night for us Liverpool fans as the first-leg of the Champions League qualifier got under way with a trip to Hoffenheim. Shaky straight off the bat, the German outfit looked capable of causing real problems for Klopp’s side, who’s defensive frailties are well documented. That was confounded by an 11th minute penalty which raised more than a few heart rates around Merseyside. However, The Reds rode the rapids and came out on top thanks …

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Ryan Kent Seals New Long-Term Deal At Liverpool

Ryan Kent Seals New Long-Term Deal At Liverpool

Pre-season offers youngsters the chance to stake their claim for the new season; to burst their way into the managers thoughts and prove they have a future. That’s exactly what Ryan Kent has done this summer. It’s no real surprise, therefore, that Liverpool have tied down the young winger to a new long-term deal, with various English clubs vying to take him out on loan for the coming season. Such deals could still arise, of course, but the 20-year-old has …
Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

With Nathaniel Clyne set to miss Liverpool’s opening Premier League fixture against Watford next Saturday, having failed to feature prominently in pre-season due to hamstring and back injurie, Jurgen Klopp will have a decision to make at the back. The boss has already confirmed that Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jon Flanagan are in contention for a starting berth, with all three players having featured over the last few games ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. So then, who starts at right-back …
Is Dominic Solanke's pre-season form a worry for Divock Origi?

Is Dominic Solanke's pre-season form a worry for Divock Origi?

2016/17 was a tough season for Divock Origi. There were ups, such as that brilliant solo goal against Bournemouth from a tight angle but there were also downs, with the striker averaging just 0.9 take-ons and a shot accuracy of 48%. That makes for a poor comparison to 2015/16 in which Origi enjoyed a fine campaign, netting in both legs against Borussia Dortmund in the Europa League quarter-final. He proved to be a useful tool on the counter-attack, while contributing …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …
Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

In many respects, Liverpool were well equipped in the attacking department last season. Philippe Coutinho on the left wing, Sadio Mane on the right and Roberto Firmino through the middle, The Reds caused teams havoc on the counter-attacking. Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge provided Jurgen Klopp with some rotational options, particularly in the closing stages of the season in which Sturridge came back from the injury table to help secure a top-four finish and return to the Champions League. However, …
