The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

The International Break Proves To Be Just That For Liverpool

A lot has been made of Liverpool over the international break. A lot has been made of the potential use of a new formation, a lot has been made of the return to fitness of our full squad and what that means, something that this article will address quite heavily, and a lot has been made of where Liverpool’s season is at after a good run of results following a disastrous defeat to Spurs. But this article is more focused …
Liverpool v Southampton - Saints won't preach at Anfield

Liverpool v Southampton - Saints won't preach at Anfield

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Mike Jones Date & Time - Saturday, November 18th @ 15:00 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 4/11, Draw 19/5, Southampton 7/1 Form Liverpool Form Liverpool, thankfully, seem to be getting over their September and early-October nightmare and, Spurs result aside, have been returning to winning ways. The Reds have an 80% win record in their last five games a very impressive xG/xA record over that period, also (see table below). Much of this season has …
Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

Liverpool’s Business With Southampton: A Success?

This weekend see a surprise rivalry take place at Anfield - one that has only really caught fire in the last three years. Liverpool and Southampton do battle, in what has become commonly known as the “We’re Sick Of You Taking Our Players Derby". Saints have, perhaps understandably, been irked by the Reds consistently snatching their star men away from them in recent times, and there seems to an added effort on their part whenever the two sides meet. You …
Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

At no point this season has it seemed like Liverpool have had all their best players available. A "back injury" for Coutinho, a suspension and a pulled hamstring for Mane and a lengthy injury to Lallana meant that players in the starting XI were moved around to accommodate for the missing names. The biggest area to take a hit due to injuries was the midfield, whilst we could still field a strong three of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum it didn't …
Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

Crisis? What Crisis at Liverpool FC?

At the start of the season I made a rather large and controversial defence of Liverpool’s ability to win the title this season with the current squad. Here in November, 12 points off the pace, that’s looking increasingly like a pipedream, but I stand by the majority of the points that I made in the article. In terms of opponents, the only Premier League team that we are currently miles behind is Man City, a possibility that I suggested, with …
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 …
Reasons to be Cheerful - West Ham 1 Liverpool 4

Reasons to be Cheerful - West Ham 1 Liverpool 4

Well, didn’t that feel better? Following the nightmare that was Wembley, the Reds/the Shocking Oranges returned to the capital and tore apart a side who were asking to be beaten into submission. True, things could have been different if Andre Ayew successfully dinked a fairly simple chance past Simon Mignolet, but once Mo slotted past Joe Hart there was only one outcome. And yet, we did let them back in. We often do. Joe Gomez could have done better with …
Double DM's - Klopp deep 'sixes' his system

Double DM's - Klopp deep 'sixes' his system

"It looked like an offensive lineup, but it was a defensive lineup. Two sixes, two clear sixes!" - Jurgen Klopp
A surprise lineup pleased Liverpool fans as soon as it came out, even if we weren't exactly sure why. The inclusion of Mané was the big shock of the afternoon since even the manager had said he might be ready for 20 minutes. His dynamism and speed take the Reds to another level, but with Bobby Firmino, Oxlade …
Liverpool’s Chance to Turn a Corner

Liverpool’s Chance to Turn a Corner

It’s fair to say that Liverpool haven’t been brilliant of late. Before the 3-0 win over Huddersfield on Saturday Jurgen Klopp’s team had won twice in their last 10 games. This included frustrating draws to Newcastle, Spartak Moscow, Burnley and Sevilla and away embarrassments to City and Spurs. While the first half performance didn’t blow Huddersfield away the second half performance certainly did, the team came flying out of the blocks and Sturridge, Firmino and Wijnaldum gave the Reds a …
Klopp set to be vindicated over Oxlade-Chamberlain use

Klopp set to be vindicated over Oxlade-Chamberlain use

Jurgen Klopp has taken something of a beating from supporters in recent weeks from Liverpool fans criticising his signing, and resulting use, of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Much of that criticism has been fair. Whether or not you subscribe to the '£35M is the new £15M' club, it's okay to expect something of a quick return from a player Liverpool put so much money down for in late August. The sort of return that Nemanja Matic, Ederson and Mohamed Salah - all …
