Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't. United have drawn one game in the season so far, a 2-2 away draw at Stoke, and have won all their other games. Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

The success of finishing inside the top 4 comes with the prestige of playing in Europe’s top competition -  The Champions League – being in the competition means you are competing against the best and means better players have more of a chance of joining because you are partaking. The cons of being in the Champions League are the amount of extra games you must play in a season, many credit the lack of European competition as to why Chelsea …
An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

An Imperfect Marriage Between The System & The Players At Liverpool FC

Klopp’s Liverpool are currently experiencing a turbulent time in terms of results, and fans are understandably becoming frustrated with the same defensive issues reoccurring regularly to deny Liverpool deserved wins. However, even though these issues appear to occur so repetitively, it still seems difficult for many to pinpoint the precise problem and identify exactly who’s to blame in each situation, and this is largely due to the elaborate nature of the system that Klopp currently has in place. Liverpool currently …
Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

Woeful Finishing Costs Liverpool Yet Again

There was a moment in the final stages of Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Spartak Moscow when you could virtually feel Reds supporters all over the world lose their heads in unison. Roberto Firmino, off the pace all night, was picked out by a lovely Alberto Moreno pass, and needed to just play a simply pass across the box for Mo Salah or Daniel Sturridge to tap in. As was in-keeping with the night as a whole, however, the Brazilian’s lazy …
Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno: Will he be vindicated?

Alberto Moreno’s endured a pretty gruelling time since becoming a Liverpool player in 2014. Arriving from Sevilla, the Spaniard joined as a very attack minded, promising left-back with pace to burn. His defensive abilities, however, have always come under scrutiny. Take a look back at the 2016 Europa League final against his former-club Sevilla for example, with the left-back’s error filled performance at the heart of Liverpool’s second-half capitulation. Caught out of position, Moreno left a gaping hole down the …
The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

“And it’s Liiiiiiiivvvv-errr-pool Liverpool FC We’re by far the greatest two thirds of a team The world has ever seen.” Well, they had me fooled. As the hours passed and Sky reporters told us about how they’d spoken to ‘sources close to the club’ while standing outside car parks, I honestly believed there would be a nine foot lad in the background, creeping in through the Melwood gates, holding an expensive looking pen. Come 10.30pm I was beginning to fear …
Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Liverpool beat Arsenal by four, let the season begin!

Arsenal rolled over like a puppy as Liverpool produced a devastating attacking display to whack the Gunners by four on Sunday evening. Jürgen Klopp's side were improved at the back, impressive in midfield and imperious going forward. The pre-match decision to drop, rest, whatever, Simon Mignolet for Loris Karius was much talked about, but mattered little thanks to fantastic display's from those in front of the German. Joe Gomez again filled in capably for Trent Alexander-Arnold, filling in himself for …
Have We Just Witnessed Anfield’s Greatest Team Goal?

Have We Just Witnessed Anfield’s Greatest Team Goal?

Nostalgia is a wonderful thing in life - we all love harping back to the past and convince ourselves they will forever be the best days. When it comes to selecting the greatest, most significant things to have happened in sport, art, science, nature and whatever you can think of, we invariably go way back in time, relatively speaking. In film, it is seen as a sin if you don’t consider Citizen Kane, Casablanca and Gone with the Wind as …
Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

Andy Robertson - The Solution At Left-Back?

So we’re all in agreement then? Andy Robertson is the best left-back who ever lived and will go on to win the Ballon D’or for Liverpool? Yes? Yes. Good. Glad that’s cleared up. In all seriousness, I didn’t expect to see Robertson just yet. He hadn’t played much for the Reds in pre-season and Klopp had previously indicated that he was still settling in. I figured that maybe he'd return after the international break, which was why it was a …
Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Joe Gomez: Liverpool's Most Important Full-Back

Five young full-backs. Like a team within a team, they all have their own unique strengths and weaknesses. Trent Alexander-Arnold has been absorbing most of the accolades and Moreno has been the whipping boy as usual. Robertson’s crosses against Palace drew audible ooh’s and ahh’s from the crowd and Jon Flanagan regaining a squad position is great to see. But when the story of the 2017-18 season is written, it may be Joe Gomez that has the biggest impact in …
