Ruthless Liverpool Ruin City To Establish 9 Point Lead

Liverpool find themselves nine points clear at the summit of the Premier League table thanks to a 3-1 win over Manchester City at Anfield. Goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané gave the rampant Reds a 3-0 lead before Bernardo Silva snatched a late consolation for the visitors. Manager Jurgen Klopp elected to pick what is known as his tried and tested midfield -- with Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum ahead of Fabinho -- and he was rewarded in …

Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Here we are, on the precipice of the most important match ever in the history of football since 1992, the dawn of time (historical accuracy brought to you by Sky Sports, Sky Bet and Gary Neville’s pompous sense of self-importance)....... AND IT’S LIVE. The Reds, a crack commando unit, sent to play two games within 24 hours on two separate continents for a crime Sadio Mane didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security two fixture prison by “lashing …

Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Liverpool’s midfield is a divisive topic, but one thing most fans can agree on is that reinforcements will soon be needed.

Predicting Liverpool's starting lineup for Sunday's Manchester City clash

Liverpool and Manchester City meet at Anfield in the Premier League on Sunday. We've had a go at predicting Jurgen Klopp's starting lineup for this huge fixture. Nathaniel Clyne, Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri are the three players definitely ruled out through injury for this game. Jordan Henderson missed the 2-1 Champions League win over KRC Genk on Tuesday night with an illness. It's believed the Liverpool captain will be back fully fit in time for Sunday's game. In goal, …
Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Jurgen Klopp raised a few eyebrows with his team selection for Liverpool's recent Premier League victory away to Aston Villa. With Fabinho walking a suspension tightrope ahead of this coming weekend's top of the table clash with Manchester  City, the Brazilian sat the game out. In his stead, most assumed that Jordan Henderson -- who played the number 6 role for two and a half season's under Klopp -- would slot in. However, in a move that surprised all Liverpool …

James Milner says this season has seen a need for Klopp and co to continue evolving Liverpool's playing style when facing teams focused on defending.

We need to talk about Naby Keita

We need to talk about Naby Keita

Naby Keita is the latest in a long line of players to divide opinion at Liverpool. He's a victim of hype others created for him and there's no escaping that. The deal to bring him to Anfield was unique in the sense fans has to wait an entire year to see him turn out for the club. The recruitment team, namely Ian Graham, saw his value and convinced those he had to that Liverpool needed this player. That not only …
Liverpool's midfielders: Why can't there be a middle ground?

Liverpool's midfielders: Why can't there be a middle ground?

Liverpool's midfield options have so often been lacking, but that has now changed. There have been times during the respective reigns of every Reds manager during the Premier League era when depth in the middle of the park has been a serious issue. For the first time in what feels like an eternity, however, Jurgen Klopp has assembled a formidable group of midfielders capable of dovetailing with one another and allowing the German to rotate effectively. Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Gini …
