Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Liverpool's Priority Transfers For January

Now that Liverpool have emphatically topped their Champions League group with a 7-0 demolition of Spartak the club's needs for the January window have become much more clear. We polled a few Anfield Index contributors, asking them what their two priority transfers would be for the January window to set Liverpool up to add to the trophy case at Melwood in this season and beyond. One large Dutchman was a popular pick, but who would you prioritize in the winter …

Klopp again rotated his starting eleven with five changes from the team that took the pitch at …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Loris Karius - 6 Didn't have all that much to do due to the brilliance of Liverpool's front four. However, there was one shaky moment in the first-half for the German goalkeeper who rushed off his line to close down a promising Spartak attack - a rather reckless decision albeit one that resulted in a free-kick due to an offside call. Alberto Moreno - 7 Wasn't particularly troubled down the left-hand side by the Spartak attack as he continued to …

Observations as Liverpool let 3-0 Lead Slip away to Sevilla

Observations as Liverpool let 3-0 Lead Slip away to Sevilla

Liverpool made the perfect start to their crucial game against Sevilla on Tuesday night, with Roberto Firmino netting inside just two minutes. Quickly followed by a carbon-copy goal from Sadio Mane, the away side ensured their dominance was reflected via the score-line. With confidence flowing and Sevilla distinctly lacking quality, Firmino's non-look pass added insult to injury before the break to put The Reds firmly in the driving seat. Despite such a strong division in quality during the first forty-five …

Liverpool Player Ratings from the 3-3 Rollercoaster Ride in Spain

Right. Let's try and not get too worked up. We're all frustrated, we're all angry, but all we need to do to top the group is beat Spartak at home. Here's how the Jekyll and Hyde Reds fared individually. Starters Loris Karius (7): Got to feel for him. Some stunning saves, some really good punches yet concedes three goals he can't really do anything about. Does himself no harm in the long run but you feel that his contribution will …
Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity. There is no better example of this than in his final season at Dortmund. The German overcame a shocking start to finish the campaign with some …
Liverpool's Transfer Committees, Sporting Directors and the need to Step Up

Liverpool's Transfer Committees, Sporting Directors and the need to Step Up

Since FSG have come into the club, transfers have been a mixed bag. There have been some resounding successes in the likes of Sturridge, Coutinho, Mane and Salah. There have also been some real flops like Lovren, Lambert, Balotelli and others. Michael Edwards has had to play a big role in all of this. Edwards arrived as Head of Performance and Analysis and, more recently, worked with Brendan Rodgers as part of the now infamous Transfer Committee. This was one …

Jurgen Klopp's "defensive" tactical tweak

Coming off the back of that defensive implosion at Wembley, something had to change. Personnel, defensive set-up, a mixture of both, just something. Throughout the week there was talk of Klopp making sweeping changes to his back line, Karius in goal, Gomez at CB and Trent back in at right-back were all credible suggestions but all fairly unlikely. Despite an enforced late change with the injured Dejan Lovren being replaced by Ragnar Klavan it looked as though the Reds would …
