Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Chelsea Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool’s Premier League title charge faces probably its final big test as Chelsea travel to Anfield on Sunday, looking to upset the Reds. This is a fixture absolutely teeming with history, and the infamous game between the two sides in 13-14 will be hanging over the fixture. With that in mind, coupled with Klopp’s poor record against Chelsea, with just two wins in eight attempts, Liverpool will be nervous. They’ve not beaten Chelsea at Anfield since 2012, eight games in …
Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have felt like two sparkling new signings over the past week. Both have done perfectly well at times throughout this season, particularly the former, but Liverpool's last two matches have been significant for the likeable pair. The wins over Southampton and Porto allowed the Reds to continue their winning streak, now at six victories in a row, and it was Henderson and Keita who were the biggest positives. The skipper was left out of the …
Roberto Firmino - Stepping Up At The Right Time

Roberto Firmino - Stepping Up At The Right Time

Over the international break, I wrote this article about Roberto Firmino. At the time, Bobby had played just three games since returning from injury, an injury which saw Liverpool draw two of the three games that he was largely missing from, the 0-0s against Everton and United that saw Bobby feature for just half an hour in each, and Liverpool look toothless. But since the Everton game, Bobby has returned to the team fit and firing, and Liverpool have won …
Key Stats As Liverpool In Pole Position Against Porto

Key Stats As Liverpool In Pole Position Against Porto

Liverpool saw off Porto 2-0 in a game that ended up not being quite as emphatic as it might have been, or that Liverpool fans would have hoped it would be. Nevertheless, with Porto giving the Reds a few scares, and a clean sheet kept, Liverpool have put themselves in prime position to qualify for the semi-finals on a comfortable European night at Anfield. So what were the key stats from the game? Midfield (And Bobby) Have A Stormer This …
Why not both?

Why not both?

A lot has changed since the spring of 2014. Only two players from that squad are still with the club - the now captain Jordan Henderson and our back up keeper. And yet five years later we find ourselves in a somewhat similar position - playing Chelsea at Anfield in what could be a title decider. But unlike back then this Liverpool challenge does not feel like a one-off miracle run. We've seen the team evolve since Jurgen Klopp proclaimed …
The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

There was a sense of righteous vengeance amongst the Liverpool fan-base as Jordan Henderson strode into the picture to stroke home Liverpool’s pressure-relieving third goal against Southampton and send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table. A captain justified a player who had finally thrown off the shackles of criticism and demonstrated that he was good enough to play a vital role in Liverpool’s title challenge. And certainly, it was an excellent performance off the bench …

Here, we’ll compare his underlying numbers from last season and the present campaign, and we’ll see that while many of Robertson’s top-line stats have remained much the same, there’s one pivotal area of the Scotland captain’s game that’s changed this term.

Henderson & Milner prove their worth in priceless fashion

Henderson & Milner prove their worth in priceless fashion

Another week, another Liverpool game that ages supporters approximately 20 years in the space of 90 minutes. There's doing things the hard way and then there's the Reds. Friday's memorable 3-1 win at Southampton was the latest title statement from Jurgen Klopp's men, in a season that continues to defy belief in terms of consistency, winning mentality and a freakish points tally. This was no normal routine victory away to a relegation-threatened team, though, as the evening had numerous twists …

Liverpool have a breather from the pulsating title race developing in the Premier League, as they get the chance to seek European glory instead. The next obstacle in their route in the Champions League is Porto, whom the Reds met last year and beat 5-0 on aggregate. Nevertheless, it would be remiss of the Reds not to take their opponents seriously, so here are the potential key battles for Tuesday’s first leg. Sadio Mané vs Maxi Pereira Sadio Mané scored …
Jordan Henderson: Silencing the Critics Against the Saints

Jordan Henderson: Silencing the Critics Against the Saints

Jordan Henderson. A name that instantly divides Liverpool fans. But it's a name that will certainly be ringing out on the terraces for the coming days after his inspirational substitute appearance against Southampton. The skipper is always a controversial topic of conversation but his performance at St Mary's was one that showed what he is all about and what he brings to this Liverpool side that Jürgen Klopp values so highly. Many will have raised their eyebrows (myself included) when …
