Karius' Resurgence The Beginning Of A Much Longer Journey

Karius' Resurgence The Beginning Of A Much Longer Journey

Loris Karius has largely played second fiddle to Simon Mignolet since the summer of 2016, with the Belgian put at the top of the pecking order in both the Premier League and domestic cup competitions. Yet, his rife inconsistencies allowed the German to sneak through the door and take up the reigns as Liverpool’s No.1 goalkeeper following an alleged behind-the-scenes meeting between Mignolet and Klopp over the manager’s rotation. There have been clear signs of progression in the moments since …

Goalkeepers at Liverpool, light at the end of the tunnel?

Goalkeepers at Liverpool, light at the end of the tunnel?

Speaking to Gags Tandon and Nina Kauser for this weeks episode of Media Matters for AI Pro, ex-professional goalkeeper David Preece talked about the importance of a goalkeeping coach and how they can affect the performances of a goalkeeper on the pitch.
"The relationship between the goalkeeper and their coach is very, very important. It’s much more of a personal relationship than the outfield players have with the coaches because you spend a lot more one-to-one time with them, …
Southampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Southampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

It might just be me, but I do love a good-old 0-2 victory. Indeed, this was Liverpool's first 2-0 league victory of the season. And we should not knock that at all, a 2-0 is an underrated scoreline, it usually means control by one side within a fair game, a game in which the opposition is resolute enough to not concede more, but the winning team is focussed enough to not concede at all. That's a massive generalisation, and not …

A Critical Look at Loris Karius

A Critical Look at Loris Karius

Please note that this article was written before the Southampton game. Over the years, Liverpool have had persistent goalkeeping problems that have ultimately contributed to the club being unable to make decisive surges forward to win silverware. Liverpool’s last trophy was won in 2012 with Pepe Reina between the sticks, and a year later Simon Mignolet was signed to assume the position for the club moving forward. Since then, Liverpool haven’t won any form of silverware and the current manager …

Observations as Liverpool ease past the Saints

It was a game in which Liverpool never needed to get out of second gear but still came out with a comfortable 2-0 victory. The game was settled by two beautiful first-half goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah who each continued top-class goalscoring seasons. Here are some talking points from the game: Karius loves St. Mary's Loris Karius's best performance in a Liverpool shirt thus far was in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final last season, and …

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

A frantic finale saw Liverpool and Tottenham secure injury-time goals, playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. With the reverse fixture having gone so poorly for Klopp’s men earlier in the season, this was a suitable opportunity to enact some revenge on Mauricio Pochettino’s side and extend the points gap between the two. Such plans got off to the perfect start when Mohamed Salah netted his 20th goal in the Premier League inside the opening few …
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 …
