Klopp: We Were Better

Klopp: We Were Better

"We were the better side, played better football, had a better plan." Jürgen Klopp "We stopped them playing but they also did very well from the defensive point of view." Jose Mourinho
Everybody loves a good story, especially here at Latest News. The creation of narrative is as old as we are as a species. The past, after all, is just a story that we tell ourselves, so the same thing should work for the future, right? Well, not really. …
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 …

The Long Game: Tough Fixtures & Plenty to Look Forward To

Dropping points at Old Trafford is always a bitter pill to swallow, especially so in the manner that Manchester Utd scored: late, and with the help of a useless linesman. Regardless, it's very much onto the next one for Klopp's Liverpool who face a series of tough fixtures over the coming weeks. In Liverpool's next eleven games, they have one cup semi-final, another FA Cup replay, and fixtures against Chelsea, Spurs, Arsenal, Manchester City and Everton. That being said, looking …
Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

It wasn't like the game at Anfield earlier this season. It was a Liverpool vs United game that lived up to its billing. Yes, it was short of quality on a few occasions, but the pluck and frenzy of a derby was there for all to see. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late header cancelled out Milner's first-half penalty, but Liverpool will be disappointed not to have shut the game out as they had plenty of chances before Zlatan popped up with the …
Observations from Liverpool's draw against United

Observations from Liverpool's draw against United

A draw at Old Trafford against a United side on a nine-match winning streak is never a bad thing, but I don't half feel cheated and I'm not sure whether it's a well-earned point or two dropped. Jurgen Klopp switched it up a bit and once again showed why he's one of the best tactical coaches around. The Reds went with a diamond shape and looked to clog up the pitch centrally. To an extent it worked. Beforehand many fans …

Liverpool Fans and Their Great Expectations

Southampton 1-0 Liverpool. A truly dreadful display, that could have seen the end of Liverpool's EFL Cup ambitions if not for an impressive performance by Karius, and woeful finishing on Southampton's part. To take my mind off the defeat, I decided to watch a film, and Christopher Nolan's magnum opus was on television, The Dark Knight. Rather surprisingly I found an intriguing parallel that Heath Ledger's The Joker raised, when in conversation with Harvey Dent,
"...nobody panics, because it's all part of the …
Is it time to see Sturridge and Origi up front together?

Is it time to see Sturridge and Origi up front together?

Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge have both proven to be huge assets for Liverpool but they rarely play alongside each other because Jurgen Klopp prefers to play with a lone centre-forward. The striker is supported by two forwards as part of an attacking three and their role changes due to the dynamism required. The player in the middle must be willing to rotate and move around among the front three to create space for the creative attacking players to move …

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a far from ideal way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool put on one of their worst displays under Jurgen Klopp in the 1-0 semifinal first-leg loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton. Liverpool are very lucky to still be in that tie, but now the focus should switch to the Premier League and to their fierce rivals. United are on a fantastic run of form - they have won eight games in …
Lovren: Liverpool Learning From Klopp

Lovren: Liverpool Learning From Klopp

On Friday mornings, as Latest News sips an Americano and contemplates its navel, the events of the week tend to spill out from the dark recesses of a troubled mind. There was that idiot on the roundabout with a death wish, the older lady who aggressively elbowed her way past schoolchildren in a coffee queue and the nice fellow who popped up in the comments section pleading with the author of this column to "speak english (sic) please." In a week where the only …

VIDEO: Nina Kauser Reflects on Liverpool's loss to Southampton

The Nina Kauser show on YouTube is back! For my third Anfield Index TV show I decided to discuss Liverpool's poor performance away at Southampton in the 1st leg of the EFL Cup Semi Final. I took to Twitter once again to ask the following question to my followers: How did they react? What did they say? You'll need to click on the play button above for that to find out what exactly my followers thought and you'll also get my reaction to …
