Liverpool v West Ham Preview: Key Battles

After a gap of ten days to bask in the glory of a perfect Champions League in Porto, Liverpool are back in action in the Premier League, welcoming West Ham United to Anfield on Saturday. The Reds won the reverse fixture 4-1 at the London Stadium with a Mo Salah brace either side of goals from Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain giving the Reds three points. West Ham will be buoyed by their home win against Watford last time but …
Goalkeepers at Liverpool, light at the end of the tunnel?

Goalkeepers at Liverpool, light at the end of the tunnel?

Speaking to Gags Tandon and Nina Kauser for this weeks episode of Media Matters for AI Pro, ex-professional goalkeeper David Preece talked about the importance of a goalkeeping coach and how they can affect the performances of a goalkeeper on the pitch.
"The relationship between the goalkeeper and their coach is very, very important. It’s much more of a personal relationship than the outfield players have with the coaches because you spend a lot more one-to-one time with them, …
Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Well, that was more like it. Following the horrors of West Brom and the costly idiocy of the officials in the Tottenham game, Liverpool went to Southampton and dispelled the myth that, following the numerous goalless encounters of last season, they have become our bogey team. Virgil van Dijk was booed throughout and Dejan Lovren endured much of the same when he came on as an 89th-minute substitute – an act of such needle and piss-taking from Jurgen that he …
Liverpool March On In The Battle For Top 4

Liverpool March On In The Battle For Top 4

Another efficient away day performance from the Reds (or more correctly the Oranges); we find ourselves within 2 points of a drab Manchester United team. The 3 points at the Saints sealed a pleasing season double against a side that gave us 4 torrid games last season. Whilst the performance was not spectacular (even if the assist for both goals were), it was another generally solid performance on the road. All without really having to get out of third gear. …
Swansea 1-0 Liverpool | Player Ratings as Liverpool do a Liverpool

Swansea 1-0 Liverpool | Player Ratings as Liverpool do a Liverpool

Typical Liverpool eh? Beat the Premier League leaders one week, lose to the league's bottom the next. It was a disjointed Reds side up against a spirited Swansea outfit, who displayed tremendous team-spirit and character to come out with a 1-0 win that ensured Liverpool couldn't extend their advantage over Spurs to more than two points. Here's how each player fared. Loris Karius - 6/10 He had two saves to make. One was a catch, which he caught. The other …
How far Liverpool have come under Klopp

How far Liverpool have come under Klopp

With Barcelona having lost 1-0 on Wednesday night, Liverpool are now currently on the longest unbeaten run in Europe's top five leagues. Since losing 4-1 to Spurs in October, Liverpool took stock, restructured tactically, and have not just been resurgent, but prepotent. In the 18 games following that defeat to Spurs, Liverpool have gone on to score 3 or more goals in 12 of those (66pc of games). But this is not just the story of Liverpool finally getting their …
Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

After what seems like forever, Liverpool have had a whole week between two games, and the break couldn't have come at a better time than in the lead-up to a game against Manchester City, who have made a mockery of the Premier League this season. City have only dropped points twice this season but come into this game having not won at Anfield since 2003. For Jurgen Klopp's Reds, it has been an eventful week with a dream Virgil van …
Will Virgil Van Dijk Cement A Top 4 Place For Liverpool?

Will Virgil Van Dijk Cement A Top 4 Place For Liverpool?

Two days after Christmas saw an announcement made by both Southampton and Liverpool to confirm that centre back Virgil van Dijk would be heading to Anfield on the 1st of January from St Mary’s. The fee is believed to be in the region of £75m, which means the Dutchman will become the world’s most expensive centre-half; as he is drafted in to shore up Jurgen Klopp’s leaky backline. Will his arrival secure a Top 4 finish for Liverpool though? Or …
Five New Year's Resolutions for Jurgen Klopp

Five New Year's Resolutions for Jurgen Klopp

The New Year. A time for reflection, but also time to look forward. Forward for the Reds, forward for Jurgen Klopp. I doubt the beautiful German will have 'go to the gym more' or 'catch up on the soaps' on his resolutions list, but here are a few Liverpool related issues he might want to consider as one year becomes another. Keep smiling I’m not going to lie to you. I had ‘Operation Virgil’ down as my first resolution. Klopp’s …
Van Dijk Makes LFC Unlikely Action Hero

Van Dijk Makes LFC Unlikely Action Hero

Why do we watch Liam Neeson action movies? On the surface, it doesn't make much sense. He's not exactly Jason Statham or Dwayne Johnson, but after wrestling a few wolves and using his particular set of skills he's somehow an action movie guy. Liverpool supporters have been telling anyone who would listen that The Reds are one of the top clubs in the world. One minor problem; the club couldn't attract or retain top players. Their targets would slip through …
