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 …

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 …

Well, finally Daniel Sturridge has spoken out on the particular subject and in the interview he gave to the Liverpool Echo he's put all of …

2001's Liverpool vs the current side - Is It Possible?

Gerard Houllier's Liverpool achieved legendary status with their treble winning season. Can Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool manage the same feat? Is it even possible? Simon Brundish and I analyse the squads with stats for the 2001  team and the current side and try to see whether or not this current Liverpool team can achieve greatness.

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing Vs Manchester United

Illustrating Liverpool's Pressing Vs Manchester United

We've been collecting Pressing Stats since 2013 on Anfield Index and after after attending the game at Anfield I expected a reasonable amount of pressing taking into account the hard work done against Arsenal in midweek. This was pretty much spot on against Manchester United, Liverpool's pressing effort wasn't one of the best performances of the season as they pressed the ball every 2.49 times Manchester Untied attempted a pass. Against Arsenal Liverpool pressed every 1.85 the Gunners attempted a pass but the …
