How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

40 goals in the previous 11 games for Klopp's Liverpool and 18 years since Everton last won at Anfield: as the game entered the 75th minute, it appeared that wait would have to go on, until the FA Cup 3rd round fixture at least, as Liverpool were absolutely cruising.

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …

Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Has Jurgen Klopp finally started to get the hang of rotation? Or is this another false dawn? Against Chelsea, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were rested, as Klopp made some big changes from the side that drew with Sevilla. Then against Stoke, Klopp left Phil Coutinho and Mo Salah out of the starting line-up.

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

Liverpool's Full Strength Attacking Options

At no point this season has it seemed like Liverpool have had all their best players available. A "back injury" for Coutinho, a suspension and a pulled hamstring for Mane and a lengthy injury to Lallana meant that players in the starting XI were moved around to accommodate for the missing names. The biggest area to take a hit due to injuries was the midfield, whilst we could still field a strong three of Henderson, Can and Wijnaldum it didn't …

Divock Origi: Liverpool's Forgotten Belgian

With Liverpool blessed with plenty of attacking talent in the form of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi’s season-long loan to Wolfsburg carries a lot of importance in terms of how his future on Merseyside will pan out. Failure to make an impact could spell the beginning of the end for the Belgian while a string of consistent and eye-catching performances could keep him in Klopp’s long-term plans. Having signed back in 2014, featuring in …
Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

Signs of progress for Liverpool following the Wembley debacle

After the horrible result against Spurs scrutiny has been on Jurgen Klopp to see if he could get a response from his players. 3 games later, with 10 goals scored and 1 conceded, it is fair to say that Klopp has the ability to get a reaction from his players in times of adversity.
