Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign David Alaba As A Centre Half

Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign David Alaba As A Centre Half

David Alaba has been linked to, among other clubs, Liverpool regularly recently. The Austrian defender is in the final six months of his contract with FC Bayern and can now negotiate with foreign clubs ahead of a possible free transfer in the summer. It was expected that Alaba, 28, would join Real Madrid but the Spanish giants -- who are also in negotiations to renew the contract of Sergio Ramos -- reputedly cannot pay the versatile defenders' €12M per annum …

Reds duo could be losing race to be fit for United clash on Sunday

The Liverpool duo of Joël Matip and Naby Keïta may miss out on Sunday's top-of-the-table Premier League clash with Manchester United. Jürgen Klopp's defensive injury woes look set to continue with Matip missing since going off after an hour of Liverpool's 1-1 draw with West Brom in late December. The Reds were hoping to have the 29-year-old centre-half back to partner Fabinho at the heart of the back four on Sunday. However, with Matip nowhere to be seen during Liverpool's …
Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri fell out of favour last season. However, Liverpool have lacked a creative spark over their last three games and, with a crunch clash coming up against Manchester United, it is integral they find it again. Shaqiri looked sharp in the FA Cup last Friday, and may be the man to reignite The Reds. But will he feature from the start, as a substitute, or will Klopp opt for another player in his place? Shaqiri's finest moment in a …
An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

For all the talk of the need for Liverpool to reinforce their defence with new signings, their most consistent players ply their trade in the area. Andy Robertson and Fabinho -- previously a defensive midfielder who is learning to play in the heart of defence on the fly -- have been the Reds standout performers so far in an attritional, compressed season. With the long term injuries to both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, the Champions' preferred centre-half pairing, …

Young Liverpool defender hopeful of more game time if Reds can progress further in FA Cup

Liverpool defender Neco Williams is hopeful of a long FA Cup run this season so he can benefit from potentially more game time with the first team. Jurgen Klopp's side survived a first-half scare against Aston Villa's youth players last Friday night in the third round of the competition. Louie Barry beat Rhys Williams and Caoimhin Kelleher to make it 1-1 for at the half-time break at Villa Park. However, Liverpool's dominance showed in the second half as they ran …
Liverpool FC and The Season's Context

Liverpool FC and The Season's Context

Let's make no bones about it, Liverpool were poor in their last three Premier League games. In the draws against lowly West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United, the Reds looked jaded and they failed to turn the lion's share of possession and territory into enough quality chances. The same applied to last Monday's defeat away to Southampton. Although it must be noted that scandalous refereeing decisions -- in particular from the hapless Andre Marriner -- contributed to the champions dropping …

Reds draw Manchester United in FA Cup draw as they prepare to face rivals twice in a week

Liverpool have been handed the tough task of playing Manchester United away in the FA Cup fourth round. Jürgen Klopp's side eventually overcame Aston Villa's youth players in the third round at Villa Park last week. Now, they've been drawn to play Manchester United at Old Trafford in round four. The last time the sides met in the FA Cup was in 2012 at Anfield when Kenny Dalglish's men knocked United out, winning 2-1. Daniel Agger and Dirk Kuyt were …
Liverpool and Man United finally meet in fixture to match the hype

Liverpool and Man United finally meet in fixture to match the hype

When Liverpool play Man United, it always means a huge amount. It remains the No.1 fixture in England, bar none. The history between the cities, whether it be relating to music, fashion or the success of their football teams, makes it a heavyweight match-up that will forever feel special. Despite the build-up always being gargantuan and those pre-match nerves arriving regardless of where both sides are in the table, the hype is rarely justified. For starters, too many recent games …

Liverpool midfielder insists Reds want to "play for everything" after FA Cup win at Aston Villa

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum says that Jürgen Klopp's men are hungry for success in every tournament they enter this season.
