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 …

Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't.

Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

On the face of it, comparing Mo Salah and Dirk Kurt is the equivalent of saying Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones are similar TV shows. Kuyt is someone who got the very best out of his ability throughout an admirable career, occasionally resembling a pub player during an off day. Salah, meanwhile, is a player who oozes quality and natural talent, and possesses the kind of pace that most of us can only dream of. He is aesthetically-pleasing - …
The Salah Cream of the Crop

The Salah Cream of the Crop

Seven games into the season and Liverpool's new number 11, Mo Salah, is already the team's top scorer. Also, he has just earned the UEFA Champions League player of the week award. With this in mind, and his fantastic and consistent displays, just how good is Mo Salah, and how much better can he become? https://twitter.com/Squawka/status/908636197932630021 Salah's figures are remarkable - once the deal was announced, Dan Kennett from AI's Under Pressure team released the image seen below. When considering …
Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Just 24 hrs ago, many of us were relishing the prospect of  Mane, Salah and Firmino tearing apart the likes of Otamendi and Stones. 4 wins in 5 matches in August had all but made us title contenders. We had the "best" attack in the league. We had a midfield trio that out"pressed" anything and everything in its path. We didn't need Coutinho because there was no place for him in the starting XI at this rate. Exactly 24 hours …
Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

It was a pretty busy window for Liverpool this summer, albeit less busy then some would have liked given Paul Joyce's remarks on the eve of deadline day. Reports of Jurgen Klopp splurging £175million proved to be widely off the mark in the end, with The Reds getting one deal over the line in the final 24 hours, adding Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to their ranks. He accompanied four other new additions to the squad - Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson …
Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Mané's importance to the team has been clear right from the word go at Liverpool. Scoring 13 goals and registering seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances, the Senegalese international needed no bedding in period to make his mark at Anfield and establish himself as a fan favourite. A fiery goal on his competitive debut against Arsenal is testament to that, showing off his pace to cannon past the defence before smashing the ball into the corner. That was followed …
Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Candidates for Liverpool’s MOTM vs Watford

Liverpool were denied an opening day victory as Miguel Britos's late header shared the spoils for Watford at Vicarage Road. Much of the pre-match talk was dominated by the headlines of Philippe Coutinho, who had handed in a transfer request the Friday before the game. The general consensus was that the Reds had to put the stories regarding the Brazilian to one side as they looked to open their Premier League season with a win at Marco Silva's Watford. It …
Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

Assessing Liverpool’s Attack For The Upcoming Season

In many respects, Liverpool were well equipped in the attacking department last season. Philippe Coutinho on the left wing, Sadio Mane on the right and Roberto Firmino through the middle, The Reds caused teams havoc on the counter-attacking. Divock Origi and Daniel Sturridge provided Jurgen Klopp with some rotational options, particularly in the closing stages of the season in which Sturridge came back from the injury table to help secure a top-four finish and return to the Champions League. However, …
Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

Will This Be Liverpool's Best Attack Since The 1980s?

The opening 45 minutes of Saturday’s Premier League Asia Trophy final win over Leicester City were unbelievable. There was a frightening pace to the game, especially compared to the usual slow speed of a pre-season friendly, and Liverpool looked irrepressible for the most part. Jurgen Klopp’s attack-minded lineup saw the quintet of Adam Lallana, Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Divock Origi all start, and some of the football was exceptional. The creativity, confidence and interchanging that the attacking …
