Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Liverpool went one step closer to qualifying for the Champions League with a 2-1 victory over Hoffenheim in the first leg of their playoff contest.

Liverpool impress at the Allianz - Liverpool 3-0 Bayern Munich

Liverpool produced an excellent performance against Bayern Munich to pick up a 3-0 victory in the semi-final of the Audi Cup. Jurgen Klopp named a strong starting XI as Roberto Firmino, Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane all started together in attack for the first game of pre-season. Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho were also named in midfield, alongside Jordan Henderson who captained the side once again. Bayern Munich named an equally strong side, with Franck Ribery, Robert Lewandowski and James …
Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Why Liverpool Still Need Another Winger

Liverpool have already added one natural wide player to their squad – the exceptionally fast and talented Mo Salah, who appears to be the sort of world class game-changing signing that FSG and Klopp have promised us this summer. However, despite bringing in a winger, there remains a solid argument that Liverpool remain a winger short – a feeling that will only have been emphasised with the news that both Sheyi Ojo and Ryan Kent are going out on loan. …
Assessing Liverpool's Midfield For The Impending Season

Assessing Liverpool's Midfield For The Impending Season

Much has been made of Liverpool’s potential business this summer, particularly in the midfield department. While Jurgen Klopp has plenty of quality options to choose from, with his side achieving a top-four finish and subsequent return to the Champions League, a much busier fixture list will bring heavier demands. That will put more pressure on his midfield options and could well see some additions over the next few months as a result. Should that be the case, what is it …

Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Having watched Klopp very closely over the past year and a half, it has become clear that there is one trait that he values above anything else and that's trust. A player can have all the ability in the world but if the German doesn't trust him to fit into his system and to play the way he wants them to then you simply won't have much of a future at Anfield. Klopp is so particular about both his defensive …
Klopp's Young Giants Pave Reds

Klopp's Young Giants Pave Reds "Route-1"

Impact off the bench. Not since Ryan Babel nearly a decade ago have Liverpool had a reliable impact sub. For Jurgen Klopp it hasn’t been for a lack of trying.  During his first few months with Liverpool he made use of Benteke, Steven Caulker and even goalkeeper Shamal George as an auxiliary striker off the bench. Liverpool’s manager hasn’t been afraid to get creative when the Reds have needed to chase a game.  However, last season because of injuries and …
Fitness & Depth: Liverpool's Summer Needs

Fitness & Depth: Liverpool's Summer Needs

With silly season upon us, every radio host, back page editor and ITK Twitter expert will be theorizing on who Liverpool might be bringing in as the Reds prepare to make their return to the Champions League. Of course with Liverpool supporters there's always the added dimension of Fenway Sports Group. Are you #FSGIN or #FSGOUT? Are FSG spending enough? Are they allowing Jurgen Klopp to build a big enough squad? Do they have enough "ambition?" Rarely in any of …
