Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Tactically Breaking Down Liverpool's Draw At Newcastle

Regular readers, you may have noticed that I did not write any tactical pieces for either of Liverpool's games against Leicester City, or the Spartak fixture. Sorry about that, I had some technical issues - nonetheless, I'm back now, and hope to continue with these pieces throughout the season. Like in Liverpool's previous games, against Spartak, Sevilla and Burnley, Liverpool can simply be characterised by poor finishing, and being undone by their own individual errors. Indeed, it's more of the …
Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Do Liverpool FC Really Lack Leaders?

Liverpool doesn’t have any leaders on the pitch… Or so the argument goes lately amongst the club's supporters. But, is that really true. Is leadership what the Reds are lacking? A quick glance at Liverpool’s squad and you’ll notice several players who have been chosen as captains by other managers, other teams, international and club sides. Jordan Henderson isn’t just Liverpool’s captain, he’s England’s captain. Phil Coutinho was selected as Brazil’s captain for the first time over the summer. Gini …
Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Tough Wins Are The Best Wins

Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Tough Wins Are The Best Wins

A win! A Liverpool win! Three goals beats two goals and the travelling Reds went home happy. The weekend is saved. It wasn’t pleasant. Jurgen’s lads coasted to a two goal cushion and were slowly beginning to realise that Leicester were not quite the reincarnation of the Dirty Dozen they’d previously thought them to be, but come a myopic official and the lads found themselves being dragged down to their level and had to scrap it out. Not a game …
A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

A Reminder of Klopp's Dortmund Cycle

Liverpool are currently experiencing a problematic period in which the team are yet to win in four matches against Manchester City, Sevilla, Burnley and Leicester. Whether we beat Leicester on the weekend or not, supporters of the club are rightly concerned with the club’s current lack of positive results and are further consumed with anxiety when watching the team ‘defend’. Although these concerns are understandable, the doubts about Jurgen Klopp being the right man for the job are completely ludicrous …
Leicester City 2 - 3 Liverpool: Back to Winning Ways

Leicester City 2 - 3 Liverpool: Back to Winning Ways

The Details Date: 23/9/17 Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester Background As a result of those strange fixture anomalies that football can sometimes provide us with, Liverpool had to revisit the King Power Stadium this evening. Leicester, of course, had been the venue for the Reds' early exit from the Carabao Cup last Tuesday night. The two starting elevens today were vastly different from those on Tuesday night, however. Leicester welcomed back players like Vardy, Mahrez, Schmeichel, Maguire and Andy King. While …
What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

What Jurgen Klopp Has To Change To Avoid Season Derailing

In the wake of Liverpool's frustrating 1-1 draw against Burnley in the Premier League on Saturday, manager Jurgen Klopp and his men were left with more questions than answers. 2 points dropped against the Clarets added a run-of-the-mill seven days for the Reds, following a 6-0 harrowing at Manchester City followed by a 2-2 draw against Sevilla in their curtain raiser Champions League match at Anfield. And on Tuesday night, the club compounded a dreadful fortnight with a disappointing 2-0 …

All you need to know about Leicester City v Liverpool

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - King Power Stadium, Leicester Referee - Anthony Taylor Date & Time - Saturday, 23rd September 2017 @ 17:30 BST Form Leicester have started the season slower than they would have liked. A home win over newly-promoted Brighton in gameweek two was their only three points so far. They’ve lost at the Emirates and Old Trafford and they suffered a home defeat to Chelsea two weeks ago. They are bound to be buoyed …
Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool’s run of form makes for miserable reading as of late, with two losses and two draws in their last four fixtures. Jurgen Klopp will have hoped for an easy fixture to get back on track with the team’s current form being so poor, but Leicester away is far from that. Having already played them once this week, albeit with a weakened side, Liverpool have to once again travel to the King Power to hopefully return with a better result …
Leicester City 2 - 0 Liverpool: A night to forget at the King Power Stadium

Leicester City 2 - 0 Liverpool: A night to forget at the King Power Stadium

Competition: Carabao Cup 3rd Round Date: 19/9/17 Venue: King Power Stadium So, the Reds were back in action again tonight. September is a gruelling month, match-wise for most clubs, second only to December. Liverpool have stayed true to their form of recent years by struggling in the immediate aftermath of the first international break of the season. A 5-0 trouncing at City was followed up with two home draws (2-2 v Sevilla, 1-1 v Burnley). Now, they begin a run …
Mahrez On The Move: Should Liverpool Be On Alert?

Mahrez On The Move: Should Liverpool Be On Alert?

Signing for a fee of £400,000 in 2014 from Le Havre, Riyad Mahrez played a key part in Leicester’s unexpected Premier League title win in 2015/16. The 26-year-old scored a total of 15 goals in the top flight that season, with another 10 goals and seven assists to his name this season. A campaign with two very different fortunes saw The Foxes finish 12th in the league but get further than any other English team in reaching the Champions League …
