Liverpool 1 - 0 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool huffed and they puffed but in the end, Sadio Mane's first Anfield goal of the season ensured that the Reds took their first Premier League win of the season. It wasn't pretty for large parts of the game, as a sluggish Liverpool threatened to be stifled out of the game by a disciplined Palace, but a stroke of good fortune meant that the ball fell in Mane's path for him to calmly slot past Wayne Hennessey. Here are the …
Jurgen's Four Centre-Backs

Jurgen's Four Centre-Backs

Well, the blood really is up, isn’t it? To be honest, the last few days have been too much for a man of my all too advancing years and, on Saturday, I took the decision to momentarily mute Twitter until this was all over. After all, I’ve (mis)used these pages before to point out that I like a summer break from football. I need time to recover from the ten months of joy and anxiety of a season – and …
Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

Who starts at right-back for Liverpool against Watford?

With Nathaniel Clyne set to miss Liverpool’s opening Premier League fixture against Watford next Saturday, having failed to feature prominently in pre-season due to hamstring and back injurie, Jurgen Klopp will have a decision to make at the back. The boss has already confirmed that Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jon Flanagan are in contention for a starting berth, with all three players having featured over the last few games ahead of the 2017/18 campaign. So then, who starts at right-back …
Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez Should Remain At Liverpool This Season

Joe Gomez has endured a torrid time since moving to Liverpool, suffering an untimely ACL injury just seven days into Jurgen Klopp’s tenure as manager. The 20-year-old was ruled out for the rest of the season after being forced off the pitch ten minutes into England Under-21’s game against Kazakhstan.
“Gomez came here and I met him for the first time. What a wonderful young play – tall and muscles in the right positions. From this point on it goes …

5 Players In Need Of A Loan Move This Summer

5 Players In Need Of A Loan Move This Summer

Liverpool are set for a crucial summer transfer window with quality additions needed to get the squad ready to fight on all fronts ahead of a new campaign. Mohamed Salah has started the trend, making the move from AS Roma in a £36.9million deal. The ex-Chelsea man’s high-profile move sees him as the club’s new record transfer, replacing Andy Carroll, much to the delight of the fan base. Plenty more players are expected to pose for the infamous Melwood lean, …
How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

How The Perfect Liverpool Squad Should Look Next Season

Another season has been and gone, but unlike so many at Liverpool since they decided to stop winning everything, 2016/17 has left us with a feeling of great warmth. The Reds’ title challenge may have fizzled out after a very promising first four months, but sealing Champions League qualification has to be seen as a huge positive. It is very easy for Liverpool fans to have a sense of entitlement, given the club’s incredible history both domestically and in Europe, …
Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Liverpool's Plan B: Time for the Hipster 3-4-3?

Under Klopp, 2016 was a fantastic year. Goals galore, two cup finals and the development of players such as Roberto Frimino and Adam Lallana. The German tactician started off using a fluid 4-2-3-1/4-1-4-1 formation during the latter months of last season which morphed into an efficient 4-3-3 for the first half of the season. With Can and Henderson never excelling as a two, putting Lallana or Wijnaldum into the mix solidified the midfield and created space for Coutinho's and Firmino’s …
Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The (Lack of) Depth Chart

Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The (Lack of) Depth Chart

At the start of the season I was quietly confident in the strength and potential of Klopp’s squad considering the lack of European football. Coming into the final 12 games and the worrying lack of depth and quality in key positions has come to the fore. Milner has played most of the season as left back and Lucas Leiva continues to pick up playing time as a centre back. You don’t need to look at statistical analysis — such as …
