Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

The nature of the conversation around Mo Salah has indeed shifted in recent weeks, culminating in a significant shift following Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford. Salah was of course, entirely unplayable on Saturday, scoring four and assisting Bobby Firmino’s goal, but that performance was only the cherry on top of what has been a truly elite season for Salah. His 28 goals make him the top scorer in the top five European leagues, with nobody contributing more than his 37 …

LIVERPOOL ON THE UP: A statistical look at pressing and team performance

Liverpool’s current league position and recent Champions League performance emphasise the fine job that Jurgen Klopp is doing. Things are not perfect, they indeed rarely are in football. However, despite the squad still being a work in progress, the year on year improvement is undeniable. A large part of Liverpool’s success this season is down to the fine-tuning of the acclaimed gegenpress. The addition of the likes of Van Dijk, Oxlade Chamberlain and Salah have only served to add more …
Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool's one-all draw with Chelsea was a disappointing result to take given the scoreline in the 84th minute. The manner of Willian's goal, a floated cross which found its way into the top corner, only compounded the fans' disappointment, after surrendering a three goal lead, away from home, in midweek. The discussion about the game itself begun well before kick-off, with Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino rested on the bench, with Sturridge and Oxlade-Chamberlain brought in, whilst Milner was also, surprisingly, …

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2: Player Ratings

Chelsea 1 Liverpool 2: Player Ratings

A game of two halves if there ever was one, as the Tricky Reds displayed multiple facets of their game as Liverpool ground out another away win at Chelsea, the second on the bounce. Lets see how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (6) - Wretched first half from Mignolet as he was his usual dithering self on the ball. He was flapping at the crosses and almost repeated the ignominy of carrying the ball beyond the touchline himself. It is quite …

Antonio Conte's men were in cruise control against Swansea on Sunday, but then pressed the self-destruct button, before Diego Costa rescued a point for them in South Wales. For Liverpool, it is about building some momentum and racking up as many points on the board …

Is Coutinho The New Daniel Sturridge?

Is Coutinho The New Daniel Sturridge?

We all know how important Phillipe Coutinho is to Liverpool Football Club when he's on the pitch. When he plays well the whole team plays well. But at the minute for me, his recurring injuries a cause for concern for both Liverpool fans and manager Jürgen Klopp. Since the start of the current season Coutinho has missed two large chucks of the season with hamstring injuries. He picked up his first one against Manchester City on the twenty first of …
