5 Defenders to Fix Liverpool's Defence - #5 Milan Skriniar

5 Defenders to Fix Liverpool's Defence - #5 Milan Skriniar

Everyone knows the rhetoric. Jürgen Klopp may be resolute in his public support for his four centre-halves, but the summer pursuit of Virgil van Dijk speaks volumes about the need for a commanding, composed centre-half to fix Liverpool’s shaky defensive problems. Come January, those problems will likely be addressed with the pursuit of a centre-half – given how often Liverpool’s manager is having to face scrutiny in the press regarding his side’s frail rear guard. Or perhaps he'll wait until …

Observations as Liverpool Frustrated by Goalless Draw with United

Back to Premier League action after another dull international break, Liverpool dominated an in-form Manchester United side but couldn't find a way to steal all the spoils in a goalless draw. The Reds got off to a lively start, dominating the ball and pressing the opposition high up the pitch. However, the game saw another succession of missed chances for Klopp's side who were left frustrated by a Jose Mourinho shaped bus. Here are the observations from the game. Joe …

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Onto the next one and all that, but after a much better attacking performance at home to Man Utd compared to last season, it's annoying that the Reds couldn't land all three points. A chance here, a chance there but always just a little lacking. Anyway, how did everyone get on individually? Simon Mignolet (6/10): As commanding as a sheep at times, with too much hesitancy on more than one occasion as Matip looked to leave the ball for him. …

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

Liverpool Tactics for United: Out-Manoeuvring Mourinho

With the nervous energy ticking over as we approach Saturday's game, what follows are some musings on the United game. We drew with United twice last season and struggled to create chances against them, such is Mourinho's mastery at controlling and limiting space against top quality opposition. We continue to struggle against the parked bus, and the fact that United are stronger than us following the transfer window means, in our current form, getting anything out of Saturday's game will …
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, …
Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Ruthlessness Key As Liverpool Face Arch-Rivals

Whisper it quietly, but Liverpool have actually played very well in general so far this season, regardless of the current narrative surrounding the Reds. Too many people judge a team’s success and form solely on results, but that can cloud the wider picture. If you actually scan through Liverpool’s 12 matches in 2017/18 to date, there aren’t many when you can accuse them of under-performing. Watford was a limp display back in August, as was their last outing at Newcastle, …
Liverpool v Manchester United Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Manchester United Preview - Key Battles

The international break is over, and Liverpool have bad form and the loss of Sadio Mane to overcome. Just another international break that has brought strife to the Reds, then. And if that wasn't enough, the Reds welcome a red-hot Manchester United to Anfield on Saturday, as Jurgen Klopp finally looks to find a formula that could break a wretched run of results in September. United have won all of their games this season, bar one, a 2-2 draw against …
