Takumi Minamino - Analysis of Debut

When Liverpool announced the signing of Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg many fans were wondering what position he would play. Is he a centre midfielder? A number 10? A versatile attacker? Yesterday's game should put some of those questions to rest as Klopp deployed Minamino as the false nine, the Roberto Firmino role.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
