Liverpool 4-2 Hoffenheim: Player Ratings

Liverpool qualified for the Champions League with a huge 4-2 victory (6-3 agg) over Hoffenheim in the second leg of their playoff contest at Anfield. It was a dominating performance from the Reds in front of a packed out Anfield for their first European match at home since their 3-0 victory over Villarreal in the semi-final of the Europa League in May 2016. Goals from Mohammed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Emre Can were enough to see them cross the line …

We are always looking ahead to the next game. As I am writing this the focus has already shifted from the win against Palace on Saturday to the second leg of the Champions League playoff in midweek. In addition to that we are still heavily involved in the most insane transfer window …
Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

Analysing Gini Wijnaldum's Disappearing Act

After having a fairly decent debut season and scoring numerous meaningful goals, Gini Wijnaldum has developed a decent reputation amongst Liverpool fans thus far. Gini's first season playing under Klopp resulted in a return of 6 goals and 9 assists in the Premier League as well as strong performances in the so-called 'big games' against Liverpool's title rivals. However, although the season is just a few games old, his start to the 17/18 campaign hasn't been good enough and it's …

Liverpool 1 - 0 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool huffed and they puffed but in the end, Sadio Mane's first Anfield goal of the season ensured that the Reds took their first Premier League win of the season. It wasn't pretty for large parts of the game, as a sluggish Liverpool threatened to be stifled out of the game by a disciplined Palace, but a stroke of good fortune meant that the ball fell in Mane's path for him to calmly slot past Wayne Hennessey. Here are the …
Scouting Jean-Michael Seri - The Archetypal Playmaker

Scouting Jean-Michael Seri - The Archetypal Playmaker

Poise. Class. Creativity. Bountiful vocabulary has been used to describe the underrated Ivorian midfielder, currently plying his trade in a young, vibrant Nice team, coached by the Klopp-like Lucian Favre and playing alongside the likes of Vincent Koziello, Younes Belhanda and Allasane Plea. With a talented squad capable of hanging with Ligue 1’s opulent giants, Nice, on the whole, could be described very similarly to the man who often carries their midfield – underrated, under the radar, and yet seriously …
Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Liverpool’s Midfield Trio Must Be Kept Apart

Before Philippe Coutinho decided to cause trouble and Adam Lallana picked up a lengthy injury, Liverpool’s best possible starting lineup was a mouthwatering proposition. Assuming your approach was as gung-ho as mine, it was easy to envisage Coutinho and Lallana ahead of a deep-lying midfielder, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino further wreaking havoc in attack. To have that quintet all on the same pitch at once is enough to blow any team in Europe away on its …
