What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

When Liverpool beat FC Barcelona, FC Bayern and a host of Europe’s elite to secure the signature of Naby Keita it was heralded as a coup. The Guinean captain was a whirlwind in the middle third for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and appeared to be the definition of a box-to-box midfielder. He scored goals. He made assists. He racked up tackles and interceptions at an alarming rate (4.81 during his final season in Germany), and his dribbling figures were …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
Listless In London

Listless In London

After an extremely poor loss away to Watford that ended Liverpool’s chances to set several records in the league this season, Liverpool had a chance to turn the page with a quick turnaround trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup. A win at Stamford Bridge could start to set things right after they had gone terribly wrong since Liverpool returned from a brief winter break. Jurgen Klopp even showed some respect for the FA Cup – take that, haters – …
Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Liverpool get knocked out in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup by Chelsea after a 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge. Another really poor and disappointing performance from the Reds as they fall to their third defeat in four games, in three different competitions. Adrian - 5 You can’t make mistakes like the one he made for the Willian goal, but made a couple of very good stops as well. Neco Williams - 5 Started brightly and delivered a couple …
Watford 3-0 Liverpool: Who was the Disaster of the Match?

Watford 3-0 Liverpool: Who was the Disaster of the Match?

Our unbeaten run in the league is over. The Reds go down 3-0 away to Watford after, without question, one of the worst performances in years. Liverpool failed to create a single decent chance in the entire 90 minutes and thoroughly deserved to be soundly beaten by the relegation-threatened Hornets. In the net, Alisson can’t really be blamed for any of the goals. A tap in for Sarr’s first, a smart dink for his second and just an absolute calamity …
Watford 3-0 Liverpool - Grim Player Ratings as Reds' Invincible Dream ends at Vicarage Road

Watford 3-0 Liverpool - Grim Player Ratings as Reds' Invincible Dream ends at Vicarage Road

The unbeaten run is over. 28 games into the season, Liverpool have lost a game. Watford beat the Reds 3-0 with a vibrant display of counter-attacking football that left Jurgen Klopp's side shellshocked. Ismaila Sarr scored twice and assisted another for Troy Deeney as an awful Liverpool performance got the result that it deserved. Here's how each Liverpool player fared. Spoiler Alert: This is not going to be pretty Alisson Becker - 4/10 Was twitchy in the first half, when …
Lame and Lethargic Liverpool Limp To First League Loss

Lame and Lethargic Liverpool Limp To First League Loss

Liverpool fell to their first League defeat since January 3 2018 after they were drubbed 3-0 away to Watford. A brace from Ismailia Sarr and a Troy Deeney strike condemned the at times hapless Reds to not only a defeat but also scuppered their chances of breaking an English league record with a 19th consecutive league victory. With the wind buffeting around, build up play was rendered difficult for the reds, whose approach play was built on short passes. But …
Liverpool's Candidates To Replace Lallana

Liverpool's Candidates To Replace Lallana

Adam Lallana's Liverpool career appears to be in it's final throes. Signed in the ill fated summer of 2014, the 31 year old's Anfield career -- despite being a favourite of both the coaches he's worked with, Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp -- has been hampered by a spate of injuries. And now, with the attacking midfielder's contract dwindling down, it appears likely that his time with the Reds is coming to an end. According to the well connected David …
Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

So, Jürgen Klopp has announced that he is refusing to manage Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury because it takes place during Liverpool’s scheduled winter break and that no first team players will take part. There’s going to be a lot of white noise around this one in the media for a while, and this argument has been boiling up for a while, you’ll remember Liverpool had to play two games in two days back in December and …
Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool break the record for the best start to a top flight season ever after beating Spurs 1-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It was a bit nervy at the end with the Reds’ performance levels dropping in the latter stages of the second half, leading to a couple of good chances for Son Heung-Min and Giovani Lo Celso. Thankfully for us, they couldn’t find the target and we go marching on in the Premier League. In goal, Alisson was …
