Top 4 Still in Sight Despite Klopp's Limited Options

A disappointing goal-less draw at home to Stoke following the Lord Mayor's show, as Lineker put it last evening. But a point nonetheless and a point which should go a long way to securing top 4, come the end of the campaign. The real pressure is on Chelsea and that's ready-made for our approach. The opportunity is there to capitalise on that next weekend. Yet it could have been so different had the mercurial Mo Salah nailed his chip over the …

Observations as Liverpool Endure Another Stalemate

Funny isn't it. Tuesday night saw one of the most free-flowing attacking performances Liverpool have produced this season, possibly ever under Klopp. Running riot against Roma, five goals in the Champions League semi-final was no small feat; an indication of what this side are capable of in the final third. The contrast between that performance and Saturday's couldn't be starker. This was not a semi-final contest with the possibility of a trip to Kiev and a chance for Klopp to …

Observations from Liverpool's fight back to beat Stoke

Liverpool's starting eleven was indicative of a side battling several injuries to key players, with Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold replacing Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho in the side. The Brazilian pair have both been struggling of late with fitness and illness issues respectively. It was always going to be a tough game for the Reds but the lineup hardly filled fans with optimism going into a must-win game in the battle for a top four spot. That fear was …

Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

For the first time in six years Liverpool don't play a game on Boxing Day. In 2010 it was only because bad weather didn't allow a game at Blackpool, that the Reds not play on 26th December. But this time the revenue and the money from television has given the fixtures a spin, and the tradition of all ten teams playing on Boxing Day has been discontinued. Instead, the Reds welcome Stoke City to Anfield on the 27th, in the first of …
