Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Why Emre Can Will Become a World-Class Number Six

Emre Can has been a player who has polarised the opinion of Liverpool fans, not just about how good he is but what his best position is also. Up until this season, many fans including myself believed he was most effective in the number 8 position, operating as a box to box midfielder. This role gives him the freedom to make those driving runs into the final third on a more regular basis, linking midfield with the attack without as …
Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Sunday morning, a few hours before Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City, I was just about done. It hadn’t been the best day for Liverpool up until that point, as the toxic fever pitch and maelstrom of Liverpool fans’ complaints about everything from Jon Flanagan’s guilty plea right the way through to Liverpool deciding £90m was too much to bid for Thomas Lemar reached a crescendo. And I’d had enough. I didn’t want to see one more stupid, angry tweet …
The Ramifications Of Philippe Coutinho's Transfer To Barcelona

The Ramifications Of Philippe Coutinho's Transfer To Barcelona

On Saturday, the news Liverpool fans had long been dreading and Barcelona fans had been dreaming of was finally announced. Philippe Coutinho was officially made a Barcelona player, becoming the third most expensive player in the world - behind fellow countryman Neymar and Kylian Mbappe at €142million. The only solace that Reds fans can take from this is that the saga surrounding the Brazilian's future is finally over. From the transfer request Coutinho handed in the summer to the personalised Nike …
Key Stats from Liverpool 2-1 Burnley

Key Stats from Liverpool 2-1 Burnley

Liverpool pulled out a hard-fought, incredibly sticky 2-1 win over Burnley following Ragnar Klavan’s last minute header. But what were the key stats from the Reds’ massive win? Creative Juices Clogging? On paper Liverpool’s xG of 1.63 looks solid enough, especially for a big away game against defensively strong Burnley. But 0.93 of that came from Ragnar Klavan’s header at the death, which in turn came from a set piece and resulted in the winning goal. Or in other words, …

Why Coutinho is the Best Player in the Premier League

Why Coutinho is the Best Player in the Premier League

Yep, you read that title right. I’m going to argue Phil Coutinho is the best player in the Premier League this season. I have numbers, I have intuition and I have absolutely no fear of the backlash. First of all, I appreciate there will be two instant reactions to this. The first is: he’s not even the best player at Liverpool! This is something I myself have been arguing in favour of Mo Salah even last week, but really, Phil’s …
Individual Errors Becoming A Theme In Liverpool's Season

Individual Errors Becoming A Theme In Liverpool's Season

Liverpool's entertaining 3-3 draw away at Arsenal on Friday evening was definitely one for the neutral - but not if you're a Reds supporter and have any regard whatsoever for the health of your heart. A topsy-turvy game saw the visitors race into a two-goal lead which seemed unassailable at the time, with the Reds utterly dominant in every department. However, in typical Liverpool style, they gifted Arsenal three goals in the space of 388 seconds to miraculously give the …
The Importance of Joe Gomez to this Liverpool Side

The Importance of Joe Gomez to this Liverpool Side

It's fair to say it's been an inconsistent start to the season for Liverpool but there's one player who's slowly becoming one of the most reliable performers in the side. To make it even more incredible he also plays in a defensive unit which has been heavily criticised and contains some of the Reds' most inconsistent players. Since making his first start in the league this season at home to Crystal Palace, Joe Gomez has grown into his role at …
Where Have Liverpool’s Late Goals Gone?

Where Have Liverpool’s Late Goals Gone?

Trace your mind back to this time last year, when Sadio Mane gave us all the most delightful of early Christmas presents at Goodison Park. The Senegalese’s last-gasp tap-in against Everton secured three invaluable points for Liverpool, and also set an impressive statistic at the same time. Mane’s strike was the Reds’ 29th last-minute winner since the Premier League’s inception in 1992 - more than any other side during that time, which may come as a surprise to many. Despite …
Liverpool v West Bromwich Albion Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v West Bromwich Albion Preview - Key Battles

After peppering the neighbours in the Merseyside Derby at Anfield for no reward on Sunday, Liverpool get ready to welcome another nomad Premier League manager to Anfield, as Alan Pardew brings his West Brom side to face a Reds side itching to get back to winning ways. Jurgen Klopp knows that this is the period of the season when dreams are made or shattered, and a team like the Baggies should ideally not pose too many questions to a side of …
