Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat. That meant the absence of a midfielder to carry the ball past defensive lines, complete creative passes into the box and take dangerous shots from inside the box, all at a high level. …
Fabinho's Versatility Embodies His Growing Influence At Anfield

Fabinho's Versatility Embodies His Growing Influence At Anfield

As Liverpool embarked on the first-leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie, there were staunch questions surrounding the weakened defence. The Reds have suffered somewhat of an injury crisis in recent weeks – Dejan Lovren picked up a hamstring strain in the opening stages of the cup against Wolves and has only played 13 games this season while Joe Gomez, who enjoyed a brilliant start to the campaign, has been side-lined with a long-term knee injury of late. …
Liverpool vs Man United Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Man United Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool face Manchester United at Old Trafford. To be honest, no other context should be needed to demonstrate the sheer weight of this fixture, as it’s probably the biggest fixture in the history of English football and remains arguably the biggest fixture on the calendar. But in case more emphasis was needed on this game, Liverpool currently sit second place in the Premier League, behind Man City on goal difference with a game in hand – this game at Old …
It's Time For Mo Salah To Step Up Against United

It's Time For Mo Salah To Step Up Against United

This is going to be a controversial one, eh? I love Mo Salah. I think he’s the best player in the Premier League, I think he’s the best player Liverpool have had in a long time and I think he’s plausibly the third best player in the world. He’s a vital cog in our attacking unit, I’d be tempted to give him Player of the Year again, and I think he’s capable of bringing us a crapload of trophies. But …
Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Liverpool's recent Premier League record against Manchester United is woeful. If all matches were played without context, United would be the biggest two games of each league season for the Reds. Since Brendan Rodgers' wonderful 2013-14 side went and won 3-0 at Old Trafford, United haven't lost in the league to Liverpool. Domestically, United are eight unbeaten in the fixture, winning five and drawing three. Whilst that record doesn't only cover Jurgen Klopp's tenure, the German hasn't had much fortune …
Daniel Sturridge: Back from the Brink?

Daniel Sturridge: Back from the Brink?

At the end of the 2017/18 season, Daniel Sturridge's departure seemed an inevitability. The club had considered selling him the summer before and during the first half of the campaign, they lost faith in his abilities, resulting in a January loan to West Bromwich Albion which sounded the death knell for his Liverpool career. The club had set a fairly modest price tag, in this wacky market at least, of £15million, and but for Sturridge's lofty wage demands, he might …
2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

2018-19 Premier League fixture reaction. The season we win it?

With the recent disappointment of the proposed Nabil Fekir signing falling through, Liverpool fans have been in need of a distraction to take their minds off the circus that the transfer window rumour mill. Not only is the World Cup due to begin today (hooray football is back!), but the 2018-19 Premier League fixture list has also been released. As a fan base, we have the tendency to dwell on frustrations of the past, so the 2018-19 fixture list is …
Liverpool's Encouraging Transfer Market Motions

Liverpool's Encouraging Transfer Market Motions

The summer transfer window remains in its infancy but already there is cause for excitement as Liverpool look to wrap up their summer business in alarmingly swift fashion. Jürgen Klopp wants his squad complete by the time it convenes for pre-season training at the beginning of July and if the club's present efforts to address their outstanding weaknesses prove successful, that squad might just be closed to the finished article. No window is insignificant by any means but this one …
Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal: The Reds' Unstoppable Attack

Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal: The Reds' Unstoppable Attack

Liverpool continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with an impressive 4-0 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the side which beat Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening and secured a place in the Champions League group stages. Simon Mignolet was mysteriously left out of the squad, while Loris Karius made his first start in goal since December 2016. Trent Alexander-Arnold was also left out of the side as Joe Gomez and …
