Observations as Liverpool Blitz Watford In Anfield Blizzard

Even an ice cold blizzard couldn't stop Liverpool from turning on the style against Watford on Saturday evening as the Reds cruised to a 5-0 win. And what would a Liverpool win be without a flurry of goals from a certain Egyptian? Add to that a stunner from Roberto Firmino and there were plenty of positives to take for Klopp's side ahead of the international break. Here are the observations from the match. Yet more history made by Salah Even …
How Andy Robertson compares to his rival left-backs this season

How Andy Robertson compares to his rival left-backs this season

I recently wrote an article discussing whether Liverpool had found themselves a new left-back and compared Andy Robertson's stats to his team-mate and rival for the position Alberto Moreno. Having made some interesting findings I thought it would be a good idea to see how the Scott compares to some of the Premier league's stand-out left-backs this season. If the 24-year-old wants to be the long-term solution then he must develop into one of the Premier league's best full-backs, so …
Do Liverpool have a new first-choice left-back?

Do Liverpool have a new first-choice left-back?

After yet another superb performance this weekend, Andy Robertson is continuing to develop into a very good left-back in Liverpool's system. Since Alberto Moreno suffered an injury in the Champions League game against Spartak Moscow, the Scottish international has grabbed the opportunity Klopp has given him, progressing game on game, implementing the team's style of play at left-back. Despite showing early glimpses of what he was capable of, Robertson would far too often swing in countless crosses from deep positions …
Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Jurgen Klopp has improved Liverpool all over the pitch, quite literally, since arriving in October 2015. But unlike some of his managerial rivals, he’s done so without spending money in the transfer market. ‘Net Spend’ is a much scoffed at phrase in modern football, but to transform Liverpool into the gegenpressing, offensive monster we often see now, from the weary, possession-obsessed ‘animal’ it was at the end of Brendan Rodgers’ reign – while making £34m – is nothing short of …
Observations as Liverpool Take Three Points against Stoke

Observations as Liverpool Take Three Points against Stoke

Liverpool took all the spoils at the Bet365 Stadium on Wednesday evening, winning 3-0 against Stoke City. Here are the observations from the match. Another Mo Show I really am becoming a broken record now... When Mohamed Salah stepped onto the pitch in the second-half, Liverpool were struggling to contend with the increasing pressure of the home side. Their physicality in midfield and desire to win the second-ball put Klopp's team up against it, but the Egyptian's introduction turned the …
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 …
Klopp's options to fix the defence before January

Klopp's options to fix the defence before January

As Islam Slimani crashed in Leicester's second on Tuesday night, it sent Liverpool packing from the League Cup and all but confirmed that the Reds would remain winless for a fourth successive game. After having five put past them by Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp's side could only manage draws against Sevilla and Burnley before being out-foxed by... well, you get the pun. Just nine games into the new season, Liverpool have already conceded 16 goals. It hasn't worked so far, …
Observations from Liverpool's disappointing Cup exit at Leicester

Observations from Liverpool's disappointing Cup exit at Leicester

Liverpool crashed out of the League Cup with a 2-0 defeat against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The Reds dominated large parts of the game, but their wastefulness in front of goal was punished. Islam Slimani's sensational second goal to add to Shinji Okazaki's opener was enough for the Foxes to progress to the 4th round. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke made their first competitive starts for the Reds, in a disappointing outing at a stadium where Jurgen …

Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

It was a pretty busy window for Liverpool this summer, albeit less busy then some would have liked given Paul Joyce's remarks on the eve of deadline day. Reports of Jurgen Klopp splurging £175million proved to be widely off the mark in the end, with The Reds getting one deal over the line in the final 24 hours, adding Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to their ranks. He accompanied four other new additions to the squad - Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson …
