Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

It's the news we've all been waiting for. Thiago Alcantara is finally on his way to Merseyside to complete a highly anticipated switch from Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old Spanish maestro has long been linked with Liverpool over the summer transfer window and now, after seemingly reaching an impasse, a deal has been struck between the two clubs. Liverpool fans are rightly excited about seeing Thiago don his favoured number six shirt in Klopp's team, and he will undoubtedly bring him …
Thiago Signing Indicates Lijnders’ Growing Influence

Thiago Signing Indicates Lijnders’ Growing Influence

Finally, after an interminable series of "updates" on Thiago Alcantara's future, Liverpool have agreed a fee of £27,000,000 with FC Bayern for the Spanish international. Precisely no one will miss the daily reports telling us -- with the wording changed, to disguise the fact there was nothing new being said, after consulting a thesaurus -- that the Reds wanted the Spaniard and he was keen to only join Liverpool but the transfer powers that be at Anfield didn't want to …

A Freed Up Firmino Could Fire

A Freed Up Firmino Could Fire

Much was made about Roberto Firmino's lack of goals at Anfield last season. It took the Brazilian until the final home game of the season to finally notch in the league at home. Expertly nodding in Trent Alexander Arnold's arching cross, the number 9 broke his hoodoo with aplomb. Finishing the season with nine league goals and eight assists is a commendable feat for Firmino, who -- despite wearing the number 9 jersey -- for all intents and purposes is …
Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it. On a defensively-sloppy evening for the Reds, the one man who seemed to come in for …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …
Player Ratings for Liverpool 4-3 Leeds

Player Ratings for Liverpool 4-3 Leeds

Liverpool’s title defense started out in Jekyll-and-Hyde fashion as the Egyptian King oozed class, Big Virg created goals at both ends of the pitch, and numerous Reds were off the mark. Three points is three points and all that, but there are a lot of performances today that will be giving Klopp fits for days. Alisson – 6 Really wasn’t at fault for any of the goals. Maybe could have gotten a piece of Leeds’ opening goal, but that’s being …
Liverpool 4-3 Leeds: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool 4-3 Leeds: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool got off their Premier League defence in the most rollicking manner, winning by odd goal in seven, in what was a thrill-a-minute game. Liverpool took the lead three times and they were pegged back three times by the newly promoted side, but were not to be denied on the fourth such attempt. Alisson started in goal while Trent, Gomez, Van Dijk and Robertson started in the back-line. Alisson was beaten by some fine finishes, though he was a tad …
Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

It is a rare thing to see a young Scouser make the grade at Liverpool, backing up their early promise and becoming a hero to millions around the world. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most recent homegrown talent to become a star at Anfield, but it has been slim pickings for many years. For every Alexander-Arnold, there are many who aren't good enough, whether it be Jon Flanagan, Jay Spearing or Jordan Rossiter, not to mention the endless individuals who aren't …
The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

Marko Grujic's time at Liverpool may be about to come to an end. AC Milan look poised to bid for the midfielder, and it is likely that the Reds will accept. However, the latest reports indicate that Grujic may have the opportunity to prove himself, should these moves not materialise. The factors that dictate whether he is able to contribute are his performances during his loan spells at Hertha Berlin, his appearances for Liverpool and what he can provide that …
