Why Firmino Makes it all Work

As the dust settled on a convincing victory at one of Liverpool’s most precarious hunting grounds, and a spat between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané proliferated the post-match headlines, it was one cheeky smile and movement of the eyes that set everybody at ease. Indeed, it was also the arm of Roberto Firmino around Sadio Mané, as the latter continued his remonstrations with his manager regarding his partner in crime’s noticeable hunger for a goal, that showed Liverpool fans what …

Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool sold academy striker Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina after the Serie A side made an offer to sign the 18-year-old permanently. The Reds will reputedly pocket €2million upfront with a 20% sell-on fee for the former Manchester City underage player. Duncan wasn't the only player out the Anfield exit door on European Transfer Deadline Day. Ryan Kent joined Rangers -- who he spent last season on loan at -- for a fee in the region of £7,000,000. The English duo's …

Liverpool's Fabinho labelled best in his position in Premier League

Fabinho's impressive performances since his arrival in The Reds' first-team have prompted Jamie Carragher to say he is the best player in his position in the Premier League. It was on Sky Sports after last Saturday's 3-0 win at Burnley that Carragher made the claim regarding Fabinho's ability. "I actually think he's the best in the Premier League in that position," said Liverpool's former number 23. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com this week, Fabinho had a more understated view of his role …

Fabinho: Banishing Ghosts of Emre Can - And Then Some

When Emre Can was allowed to leave Liverpool to move to Juventus in 2018, many questioned whether Liverpool had made a mistake. The German midfielder allowed his contract to run down before inevitably joining Juventus on a free transfer, leaving many fans scratching their head as to the club's decision to let him go. However, fast forward a little over 12 months, and a man by the name of Fabinho has not only quashed the above scaremongering from Kopites, but …

Trent Alexander-Arnold hopes Reds will get into the clean sheet habit

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold was delighted with The Reds' first clean sheet of the season at Burnley and hopes more will follow after the international break.

Liverpool's games vs Salzburg Should See Successful Scouting Spree

Liverpool's games vs Salzburg Should See Successful Scouting Spree

The Champions League group stage draw took place in Monaco last Friday. Champions Liverpool were drawn in group E alongside Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli, KRC Genk of Belgium and Austria's Red Bull Salzburg. Each tie will be interesting for the Reds but in different ways. Napoli presents a familiarity for Jurgen Klopp and his team. Liverpool also drew the Italian's in last season's group phase and were defeated 1-0 in Italy, but -- thanks to a toothless Sadio Mane shooting display, …

Tactical Analysis: Van Dijk Shines as Reds Pass Turf Moore Test

The stage was set for Liverpool to drop their first points of their new campaign. No sooner had the referee ushered the ball towards the centre circle to kickstart proceedings, than Sean Dyche was seen gesticulating towards his players to kick the ball long towards the Liverpool defence. Why? Well, as Sean Dyche pointed out without any concern for subtlety, the sun was shining directly into the eyes of Liverpool's defence and keeper. The message was clear: hit early long …
Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

Virgil van Dijk - The Game Changer

I have to start the article with a disclaimer - English is not my native language and I fear my vocabulary will fail me in describing just how amazing Virgil van Dijk is. It is a task even Shakespeare might have found impossible if he had to create a sonnet about Liverpool's number four. The Dutchman was voted UEFA men's player (also defender) of the 2018/19 season and PFA player of the year after leading the Reds to number six …
