It's time for Emre Can to start dominating football matches

Putting contract issues aside, this season will be a decisive one for Emre Can. Whether he is to have a long term future at Anfield is still unknown but what is clear is that the injury suffered to Adam Lallana which is due to keep him out for at least two months and the ongoing problems with Phil Coutinho means the German powerhouse has a great opportunity to stamp his authority on this team. Despite questions still remaining as to …
Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Before Philippe Coutinho decided to cause trouble and Adam Lallana picked up a lengthy injury, Liverpool’s best possible starting lineup was a mouthwatering proposition. Assuming your approach was as gung-ho as mine, it was easy to envisage Coutinho and Lallana ahead of a deep-lying midfielder, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino further wreaking havoc in attack. To have that quintet all on the same pitch at once is enough to blow any team in Europe away on its …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A Star is Born

I remember watching Robbie Threlfall in a Youth Cup final between Liverpool and Man United in 2007, and convincing myself he was going to be a future Reds great. I can hear some of you asking who on earth Robbie Threlfall is. The defender starred in Liverpool’s march to glory that year, scoring in the final of the second-leg at Old Trafford, and big things were expected. Threlfall never made the grade at Anfield, as you may have guessed - …
How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

How should Liverpool approach the domestic cups?

Despite having the added demands of European football, the domestic cup competitions should be seen by Liverpool supporters and more importantly the manager as genuine chances of silverware this season. This is not to say big players shouldn't be rested in the league cup and FA cup, they will have to be. But with Liverpool's strength in depth in key areas such as defence, central midfield and up front these provide the Reds with a perfect opportunity to give their …
Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Liverpool were denied an opening day victory as Miguel Britos's late header shared the spoils for Watford at Vicarage Road. Much of the pre-match talk was dominated by the headlines of Philippe Coutinho, who had handed in a transfer request the Friday before the game. The general consensus was that the Reds had to put the stories regarding the Brazilian to one side as they looked to open their Premier League season with a win at Marco Silva's Watford. It …
Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Completely bewildering, yet almost oxymoronically, so very familiar; Liverpool's 3-3 draw was, for the most part, a frustrating game, with a blisteringly good period of play for Liverpool sandwiched between two periods that were hard to watch. To really understand how the game progressed, and key points within it, we shall look at the goals, specific players, and positioning across the game. First, though, we're going to need some of the stats from the game to flesh out the general …

So, based on Liverpool’s summer window, the relative strength of the other teams around us, and of course, Jürgen Klopp, can Liverpool win the Premier League title? Yes, and here’s why. Hit the Ground Running The first thing to note is what Liverpool need to …
Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

Why Liverpool are proving me wrong this summer

As Liverpool swept Middlesbrough aside on the final day of the season, I was filled with optimism. Let the fun begin, I thought We had Klopp, Champions League football and reportedly a rather large pot of gold to splurge on some much-needed transfers. Most importantly, we'd experienced sensible - logical - progression. We'd moved from a season containing cup runs and an eighth placed finish to a season where the league mattered most, and we moved up to fourth. We …

Milner in midfield - masterstroke or massive gamble?

Milner in midfield - masterstroke or massive gamble?

After Liverpool won their final game of pre-season against Athletic Bilbao 3-1, Jürgen Klopp hinted that Alberto Moreno has managed to save his Liverpool future and that as a result, James Milner will be used in his more natural position in midfield this season, allowing Moreno and Robertson to fight over the left back spot. Naturally, the response to this was calm and considered, with a lot of people acknowledging that perhaps Moreno hasn’t had the chance to settle in …
