Dejan Lovren: An Unlikely Partner For Virgil Van Dijk?

Dejan Lovren: An Unlikely Partner For Virgil Van Dijk?

Signing for a world record £75million in January, eyebrows were certainly raised about Liverpool's decision to splash the cash on Virgil Van Dijk. Yet, the Dutchman has already proved a worthy investment, posing a towering figure at the heart of the defence. Barking orders to his teammates while showing sublime distribution, he's helped address the frailties in Klopp's side as they hunt for a second-place finish. Defences are built on much more than one individual, though. Liverpool have had a …
Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

I would have been a bit disappointed at 1-0, to be honest. That sounds mealy-mouthed, doesn’t it? Being all sniffy at a one goal win against the other lot from across the park, but such was the paucity of Everton’s defence and attack (including the slowest forward line in their history) that I wanted at least four by half time. They were begging to be put away, absolutely begging. Add a snowy Merseyside and Big Sam ™ with his aerial …
Champions League knockout stage could suit inconsistent Liverpool

Champions League knockout stage could suit inconsistent Liverpool

Although we’re not yet in December, the Premier League title already looks destined for the Etihad Stadium.  Realistically, barring an unlikely collapse from Manchester City, any Liverpool title aspirations are already over for another season. Those hopes are reflected in current best odds of 66-1 being available at Bet Victor on a first domestic league title for the Reds since 1990 and you would have to be donning some seriously sepia-tinted glasses to invest anything on that wait ending this …
Liverpool fans still divided over Mignolet

Liverpool fans still divided over Mignolet

In the future when discussions are held concerning Liverpool's greatest-ever goalkeepers, names such as Ray Clemence, Bruce Grobbelaar and Pepe Reina will no doubt figure, but the name of Simon Mignolet is much less likely to. In every Liverpool roundup Mignolet's form is continually under constant scrutiny. There were signs last season that four years on from his move from Sunderland, Mignolet was finally showing signs of becoming one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League. However, the 2017-18 …

Why is Football So Popular? A Look at the Top Reasons Why It’s the Number One World Sport

There may be plenty of sports that are popular the world over, such as basketball (particularly in the US), baseball (most notably in Japan), and other sports, such as cricket and tennis, which have staked their claim in the hearts of millions. But there’s no denying the fact that the most popular sport in the world today is football (or soccer in the USA). Football is so prevalent in our lives that we simply breathe the sport – we have …

Peter Beardsley: Liverpool's United rivalry is bigger than Everton

Peter Beardsley: Liverpool's United rivalry is bigger than Everton

Liverpool legend Peter Beardsley believes Liverpool's heated rivalry with Manchester United is bigger than the Merseyside derby from a players perspective. Speaking to Gags Tandon on the Legends Lowdown Podcast, on our new AnfieldIndex Pro platform, the two-time league title winner stated:
"When I first signed for Liverpool, I imagined Liverpool v Everton was the game... but then very quickly you realise that the biggest one, with all due respect to Everton cause obviously I went there as well, …
Liverpool’s defence in need of some squad depth

Liverpool’s defence in need of some squad depth

It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality. But sometimes in football it’s about quality in quantity. Squad depth is a major part of football nowadays, as a greater number of games means a strong XI does not suffice anymore. Having depth in every position, where there’s at least one solid back-up, keeps the starting XI on their toes and provides solid competition, while keeping players fresh. At Liverpool, there’s depth in some positions, but is it always of the right …
Liverpool's English Contingent

Liverpool's English Contingent

No less than five England players come from Liverpool's ranks this summer, making the tournament even more exciting for Reds fans. Nathaniel Clyne Despite a consistent season for Liverpool a starting spot in the England XI is not guaranteed. The Liverpool right back will have to fight his way past Kyle Walker, as the Spurs defender has been tipped to start ahead of him. With very little between the two, one poor performance could gift the other a start. Jordan …
