Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

Daniel Sturridge: Liverpool’s Potentially World-Class Wildcard

There were a couple of moments at the end of last season that seemed to save Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career. By the time the crucial trip to West Ham rolled around on May 14th, the general consensus was that Sturridge’s continued fitness woes had left him surplus to requirements, with a move elsewhere likely this summer. Then the vital 4-0 win at the London Stadium happened. Moment number one for Sturridge was, unsurprisingly, his expertly-taken goal that gave Liverpool a …
It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

It's Time To See A More Ruthless Roberto Firmino

There was a moment last season that made you realise Roberto Firmino was a notch down from the very best finishers in the business. Sent clean-through in a tight contest at Southampton in November, the Brazilian’s attempt at an outside-of-the-foot finish went horribly wrong. He may have only missed the target narrowly, but it was a chance that had to be taken, especially when it comes to title aspirations. Liverpool drew 0-0, and two priceless points were dropped. Similar scenarios …

Recent Results Show why Reds Need a Striker

Liverpool need their own Sergio Agüero. There’s no need for foreplay, or context, or even to reflect on the glory days of yester-year, when Liverpool were famed for their mercurial number nines. All one needs to see is the reaction from Manchester City following James Milner’s penalty. They came at Liverpool, they scored a goal, and they left gaps in their team for Klopp’s counterattack to exploit. Make no mistake; Liverpool punished City for leaving those gaps. They did everything …

Liverpool v Everton Preview - Merseyside Derby's Key Battles

It is that time of the year again - the time of the Merseyside derby. It has been more than six years since Everton have beaten Liverpool in any competition, and as the run-in approaches with a top four place at stake, Liverpool will have to be on top of their game. In December, the Reds gave the fans a sweet present as Sadio Mane's injury-time winner condemned the Blues to a loss at Goodison, in the last game before …
Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

Philippe Coutinho Failing In Quest To Be World-Class

What defines world-class? Every football supporter has a different way of seeing it. To some, it is only those truly elite players like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Neymar, while others could name 100 who fit into that bracket. For me, it is someone in and around the top 10 players in the world in their respective position - someone who produces the goods almost every week and rarely hits a genuinely poor spell in form. Manuel Neuer, …

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Daniel Sturridge A Crucial Figure Between Now & May

Without Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool would not have beaten Everton at Goodison Park. It really is as simple as that. The 27-year-old was introduced late in the day at the home of the Reds’ local rivals, and every time he got the ball, it felt as though something may happen. He looked bright and unpredictable, and you sensed that he was the last person Everton’s defenders wanted to see enter the fray, with legs and minds tiring. It was Sturridge’s run …
