Liverpool's Young Guns - A Plethora Of Talent

Liverpool's Young Guns - A Plethora Of Talent

Liverpool have a plethora of young talent coming through their ranks at the moment, with Rhian Brewster the latest in an increasing line of youth World Cup winners at Anfield. The 17-year-old returns to Melwood this week having guided his country to glory with a winner medal to his name, joining three other Liverpool players in doing so –Sheyi Ojo, Ovie Ejaria and summer signing Dominic Solanke, all of whom featured for England’s Under-20s side. The very fact that the …
Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool's last two matches have both ended with impressive score-lines, with six goals and none conceded. However, despite the two 3-0 wins, both of Liverpool's performances have been somewhat flat and lacklustre. The opponents in these past two matches both opted to employ low defensive blocks with no real intention to play or score a goal, so Liverpool had the relatively simple task of having 90 minutes to basically break those teams down. However, although that may appear simple, and …
If anyone can, Emre Can - Analysing Can's performance vs United

If anyone can, Emre Can - Analysing Can's performance vs United

Against United, we saw the perfect example of why player performance needs to be analysed from two sides - 'on the ball' plus 'off the ball'. Emre Can's display at Anfield on Saturday was outstanding. If you don't believe me, then please read on. On the Ball Can had 72 touches against United. This was the 5th highest number of 'on the ball' possessions after Henderson, Lovren, Matip and Moreno. For all of his involvement, Can was only dispossessed twice …
Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does. United arrive at Anfield seven points ahead of Liverpool and second in the league, just trailing City on goal difference. Liverpool have been off the boil, somewhat, since Arsenal were …
Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Player Ratings from Liverpool's disappointing draw against United

Onto the next one and all that, but after a much better attacking performance at home to Man Utd compared to last season, it's annoying that the Reds couldn't land all three points. A chance here, a chance there but always just a little lacking. Anyway, how did everyone get on individually? Simon Mignolet (6/10): As commanding as a sheep at times, with too much hesitancy on more than one occasion as Matip looked to leave the ball for him. …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's next global star?

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's next global star?

Liverpool vs Manchester United is a game that notoriously has a huge amount of viewers, but Saturday's instalment will be a clash feasted upon by a whole new nation. Mohamed Salah, jokingly titled by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the 'King of Egypt' some months ago, is the first real Egyptian star to feature for either of the teams and will make his debut in the fixture this weekend. Salah makes it to the game off the back of further increasing his …

Anfield Index Fantasy Premier League Insight (GW6)

GW 6: City/ Utd assets crucial With another GW (Game Week) out the way, we've found...once the dust settled, that two teams stood head and shoulders above the rest with 5-star performances all round. The Manchester clubs dismantled their opponents with #FPL assets topping the charts. While everyone and their pet hamster felt it a necessity to either have or captain Harry Kane; it spectacularly backfired as Kane failed to deliver. This turned into a running theme as Morata, Lacazette …
Picking apart Liverpool's lunchtime problem

Picking apart Liverpool's lunchtime problem

Liverpool's thrashing at the hands of Manchester City on Saturday left the Red side of Merseyside feeling sick to their stomachs. One, two, three four and five, City brought the rain - not the scattered showers - after Sadio Mane was sent for an early bath. For many, it ruined their weekend. Losing at Saturday lunch often see's Match of the Day cancelled, and the Saturday night pints are a drowning of sorrows rather than a celebration. And then you've …
Liverpool and Arsenal | Giants Heading In Different Directions

Liverpool and Arsenal | Giants Heading In Different Directions

There are times when Liverpool just plain annoy me. There are times when I look back at all the personal and financial sacrifices I’ve made over the years in their name and wondered just why I bothered. When Liverpool were played off the park in the first half against Blackpool in 2010 I sat in my seat and thought about leaving the ground early for the first and only time in my life. That was an especial low point. Just …
