Fabinho Proving Himself As Top Class Liverpool Defender

Fabinho Proving Himself As Top Class Liverpool Defender

After taking a few months to settle into his new surroundings after his move from Monaco, Fabinho has consistently been brilliant for Liverpool since joining the club from Monaco in the summer of 2018. As the teams defensive midfield general, the long-legged Brazilian played a prominent role in the Reds having the best Premier League defence in the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 seasons, campaigns where the club won the Champions League and Premier League respectively. And now, thanks to an injury …
Three Gini Wijnaldum Replacements

Three Gini Wijnaldum Replacements

It’s just as well Liverpool didn’t sell Gini Wijnaldum in the summer. At the time, It was a divisive topic, with it being the last real opportunity for the Reds to cash in the Dutchman before his contract expires. Despite the addition of Thiago, the former Newcastle midfielder stayed at Anfield. But now, as we near December, he’s the only midfielder Jurgen Klopp has been able to rely on with all of the others have suffering various injuries.  Part of …
Liverpool Win The Jota & Werner Transfer Saga

Liverpool Win The Jota & Werner Transfer Saga

Liverpool's second choices in the transfer market have come up trumps in recent years. In the summer of 2016, the Reds were heavily linked with a move for Mario Gotze, a player who enjoyed his best footballing days under the management of Jurgen Klopp at Borussia Dortmund. The German, however, opted to rejoin Dortmund from Bayern Munich. Klopp wasted no time and decided to push for a move for Sadio Mane from Southampton. Since then, the Senegalese winger has become …
Liverpool Seal Qualification After Ajax Win

Liverpool Seal Qualification After Ajax Win

Liverpool qualified for the last sixteen of the Champions League after a 1-0 win over Ajax at Anfield. Curtis Jones scored the only goal of a scrappy game as the rotated and depleted Reds dug deep to seal the victory. The three points -- plus Midtjylland drawing away to Atalanta -- means the 2019 Champions will win group D, regardless of their result in Denmark next week. Injuries have bedevilled Jurgen Klopp this season, and the team was once afflicted …
Tactical Breakdown: Brighton 1-1 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Brighton 1-1 Liverpool

Before looking at tactics I think it's important to preface any tactical discussion within the unique circumstances players, managers and clubs find themselves in, especially Liverpool FC. Jürgen Klopp's team is currently in the midst of a season in which their pre-season was disrupted, their transfer plans unexpectedly affected and in which games are being played at a faster rate than I can write them up. The nature of this campaign has resulted in a number of decisions being made …
Replacing Gini Wijnaldum: Yves Bissouma

Replacing Gini Wijnaldum: Yves Bissouma

Liverpool will need to bring in a midfielder when the season ends. Gini Wijnaldum’s future is still up in the air, Jordan Henderson has picked up a few knocks recently and isn’t getting any younger. Naby Keita can’t go ten games without an injury and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has similar bad luck. Thiago, due to Covid and an injury sustained against Everton, has yet to make a real impact. Fabinho is being used at centre-back to cover for the injured Virgil …
Injuries and VAR distract from below-par performances

Injuries and VAR distract from below-par performances

It's hard to believe that Liverpool are on the cusp of the Round of 16 in the Champions League and sitting pretty among the early pace-setters in the Premier League. Saturday's 1-1 draw away to Brighton certainly detracted from what has been a solid start to the season. Yes, it was a draw away at a side you would expect Liverpool to be beating, but it really should have been a win for Klopp's side. An incredibly unjust penalty decision …
Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool were denied all 3 points at the Amex Stadium against Brighton and Hove Albion by a last-minute VAR-ridden penalty. It wasn’t the best of performances by The Reds but Diogo Jota’s excellent opener looking to have been enough to give Liverpool the win. Unfortunately, those incompetent imbeciles at Stockley Park felt the need to meddle and award The Seagulls a late spot-kick. Pascal Gross made no mistake from 12-yards and snatched a point for the home side. Brighton fully …
Brighton 1-1 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds denied another ugly win

Brighton 1-1 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds denied another ugly win

Liverpool missed an opportunity to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League ahead of Chelsea vs Spurs after Brighton pegged them back with a stoppage-time penalty. It was another dispiriting afternoon for the Reds, with two disallowed goals and an injury to James Milner adding to their misery. Here are the headline figures. The unwanted top spot Liverpool may have moved only one point clear at the top of the Premier League, but they are running …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-2 Atalanta

Gian Piero Gasperini's Atalanta is a fascinating side. In their 0-5 loss to Liverpool at the Bergamo Stadium they displayed a number of interesting tactical concepts that in themselves were reasonable, astute and innovative, but were ruthlessly dismembered by a Klopp side at its cutting edge best. Central to that performance was the ability of the forwards and midfielders to synchronise their movements to drag the Italian side's players out of key areas, and use direct passing, dribbling and excellent …
