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 …
Have Liverpool Already Found Klopp's Successor?

Have Liverpool Already Found Klopp's Successor?

“Our identity is intensity.” They were more than words – a tagline, or perhaps an often-repeatable motto, that anyone would think came from Jürgen Klopp himself. But no, they came from his second in command, the man seemingly placed in charge of the Reds’ Capital One Cup campaign: Pepijn Lijnders. “All these boys from the city have so much passion and ambition as well. Take the Tottenham game, everybody says we had the most shots on target, we were constantly …
Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …
Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

That was a bit rubbish, wasn’t it? 1-1 feels like an acceptable result after the first 85 minutes of that game. We also had to contend with one of the worst refereeing performances you are ever likely to see from the pathetic Martin Atkinson. The man, if you can even extend that description to whatever subhuman species he actually is, was an absolute disgrace for the entirety of the match and deserves to be immediately relieved of his duties. Enough …
Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Well, that was horrendous. Liverpool should not have let this Manchester United side get away as easily as they did at Old Trafford tonight. The Reds went down in the first half to a contentious Marcus Rashford goal, but Adam Lallana's late equaliser spared the blushes, as Jurgen Klopp's men remained the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season. Right from the get-go, the Reds were lethargic, as shoddy passing and lazy movements defined the play in the …
Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

A late goal from substitute Adam Lallana salvaged a point for Liverpool in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening. The home team had lead through a Marcus Rashford goal mired in controversy but Lallana, who replaced Jordan Henderson, had the simple task of converting Andrew Robertson's cross into an empty net in the 85th minute. The beginning of the game was typical of a first match after an international break; slack passes were compounded by …
Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

Why Liverpool should sign Dele Alli

In all honesty, Dele Alli should already be a Liverpool player and had Steven Gerrard been a little more punctual then he would be. Before Alli had even held talks with Tottenham, the Reds made their move to land him. Brendan Rodgers had talks with MK Dons boss Karl Robinson and a package was being worked out to secure the services of the teenage star. As Alli revealed during an appearance on Football Focus a couple of years back, the …

Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

Why Liverpool should sign Emre Can

The professional way in which Emre Can left Liverpool may mean the door is ajar for him to return to Merseyside. There have been no links, no rumours, but with the Germany international not included in Juventus’ Champions League squad, the writing appears to be on the wall for his career there.  Maurizio Sarri reportedly tried to sell him in the final weeks of the window. Having failed to shift other midfielders, the former Chelsea man tried to lighten the …
Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City - Observations as City nick Community Shield

Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City - Observations as City nick Community Shield

It was the stereotypical game of two halves at Wembley Stadium, as Liverpool came out second best after a penalty shootout, that saw 9 out of 10 penalties hit the back of the net. Unfortunately, Gini Wijnaldum was the unlucky one, and the Reds had to be content with what you could possibly call a moral victory, but I'm sure Jurgen Klopp and the players would've rather had the silverware to show for it. City took the lead after questionable …
