Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Picture the scene: Liverpool are preparing for the Champions League final in May, after a stunning march to the showcase event at Kiev's Olympic Stadium. Having seen off Porto in the last-16, probably despite somehow losing 4-0 at Anfield in the second-leg, they then dispatched of Chelsea and Man United, with last-minute winners in both ties. Sounds pretty special, doesn’t it? As Jurgen Klopp prepares his players for the biggest match in club football, he will be left with an …
What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

What James Milner brings to Liverpool's midfield against a low block defence

After two terrible defeats in the space of six days and the Reds failing to add to their squad in the January transfer window, Liverpool fans were understandably extremely concerned about how the rest of the season would pan out. One of the most pressing issues was the team's lack of creativity in midfield, without the magician, Phil Coutinho, how were the Reds going to break down teams who play with a low block? Gini Wijnaldum has rarely been effective …

Key Stats from Liverpool 2-2 Spurs

Liverpool were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham at Anfield in the craziest and most controversial circumstances. But what were the key stats from the game? Sumptuous Salah https://twitter.com/btsportscore/status/960191455951314944?ref_src=twcamp%5Eshare%7Ctwsrc%5Em5%7Ctwgr%5Eemail%7Ctwcon%5E7046%7Ctwterm%5E3 There really is no other place to start. Mo Salah is not only the quickest to reach 20 league goals for Liverpool in the PL era but among the fastest ever. George Allan is the quickest, and that was in the 19th Century, over 100 years ago. Salah’s is the …
Liverpool Player Ratings As They Drop Points To Spurs

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Drop Points To Spurs

Struggling to wrap my head around that one, in the aftermath. How much context will the draw have in our season? Probably not that much. Who gains momentum from this one, probably neither. Both teams will feel they should have won. John Moss won't be getting a jokey referee rating from me because there aren't enough expletives in the world to sum up the shambles that was the officiating. The players can get some ratings though, here they are. Better …
Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

Liverpool's Old Guard Barely Hanging On

For Liverpool supporters, transfers can never come fast enough. We always want to push that revolving door a little faster until we find a combination of players that starts filling up the trophy cabinet again. However, glance at the squad from 2013/14 season, just four years ago and you’ll notice that only a few faces remain. The crocked club captain; Jordan Henderson. The want-away striker; Daniel Sturridge. The freshly sentenced right back; Jon Flanagan. And the benched ‘keeper; Simon Mignolet. …

Liverpool returned to form by sweeping aside Huddersfield, winning 3-0 to give themselves some breathing room in the top four. But what were the key stats from the game?

Liverpool Player Ratings As They're Bossed By The Baggies

Honestly, reckon the FA Cup is overrated anyway. I'm more of a Barclays Asia Trophy kinda guy. Liverpool 2-3 West Brom. They actually had the ball in the net five times, did the Baggies. The beauty of VAR and all that, Liverpool still managed to mess it up. Onto the ratings... Simon Mignolet (5): Where’s Danny Ward? Have you ever seen a goalkeeper mess up for two goals that were conclusively ruled out by VAR? Now you have! He was …
Emre Can's Important Choice | Join Juventus or Stay at Liverpool

Emre Can's Important Choice | Join Juventus or Stay at Liverpool

Liverpool are considered to be one of the most high-profile clubs in Europe, but they have faced some difficult decisions regarding their star players in recent years. While most clubs with the history of Liverpool attract the world’s top talent, the Reds have now lost two world-class talents, Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho, to the bright lights of the Camp Nou over the last 4 years. The allure of playing with a club like Barcelona or Real Madrid compared to …
Swansea, Defeat and the Inevitable for Liverpool

Swansea, Defeat and the Inevitable for Liverpool

It wasn’t supposed to end this way. Manchester City were the most likely. Disappearing into the distance as they were; 22 games unbeaten in the Premier League and looking generally imperious. Maybe it could have been Arsenal? After all, Liverpool had only recorded one victory in their last six visits to the Emirates despite the obvious frailties of Wenger's team. At a push, Everton in the F.A Cup? Not because of Everton as such, but because the F.A Cup often …
