Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup against Ajax tonight?

Liverpool begin their Champions League campaign tonight away to Ajax. Let's have a look at the likely starting lineup Jürgen Klopp may go with. By now, all Reds fans are aware that we are likely to be without Virgil van Dijk for the rest of the season. Currently, Liverpool are also missing Alisson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Fabinho may well be first-choice centre-back in Van Dijk's absence

Fabinho may well be first-choice centre-back in Van Dijk's absence

It's strange to think, but Liverpool's second-best centre-back, after Virgil van Dijk, may well be Fabinho. This isn't an article having a go at a clearly excellent, but still young and developing Joe Gomez. I'm a huge fan of Gomez as a defender. Still only 23, the former Charlton Athletic player is one of England's best. Joël Matip is also a very underrated centre-half. The only issue with 29-year-old Matip is keeping him fit for a full season or even …

Virgil Loss Will Be a Huge Blow But Liverpool Are Still Brilliant

Let's get the captain obvious statement out of the way at the beginning, shall we? Liverpool will miss Virgil van Dijk during his injury lay off, which, per reports, could last anything from six to nine months. If you could manufacture the perfect centre half in a lab, equipped with elite physical, mental, technical and leadership attributes, then the Reds' towering Dutchman would be the ideal prototype. Any team -- Barcelona with Lionel Messi, FC Bayern with Robert Lewandowski, to …

Tactical Breakdown: Everton 2-2 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Everton 2-2 Liverpool

Liverpool's goalless draw against Everton back in June - the first game of the restarted league season - was an intriguing affair in which Everton posed a number of tactical questions to Liverpool, and was able to slow down the red juggernaut. With Ancelotti's coaching clearly making a difference to Everton's performance, this game had an exciting tactical dimension to it. Yet despite Everton's superb form leading into this game, it was one which Liverpool dominated, with a number of …

The club confirmed that the injury inflicted on Van Dijk in the Merseyside derby will lead to the Dutch international undergoing surgery, followed by a lengthy …
Unlucky Liverpool Still The Team To Beat

Unlucky Liverpool Still The Team To Beat

If it wasn't for bad luck, Liverpool would have no luck. After the 7-2 drubbing away to Aston Villa, the Reds produced an excellent performance in their 2-2 Merseyside Derby draw at Goodison Park. Despite not winning the game, the defending champions can be happy with the elements of the game -- control, passing, attacking -- the majority of which they impressed in. Beggaring belief, ALL the big refereeing calls went in the favor of Everton -- Jordan Pickford inexplicably …
