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 …
Shaqiri To Add Midfield Attacking Thrust

Shaqiri To Add Midfield Attacking Thrust

The team Jurgen Klopp named to face Lyon in Geneva on Wednesday evening was interesting for a number of reasons. Not only were Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Alisson Becker given also starts much quicker than anticipated following their return to pre-season from their extended, post-international tournament breaks, but the midfield selection and composition was also a talking point. Klopp elected to select Adam Lallana as the deepest midfielder, a role he has been learning on the fly this summer, …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Lose Community Shield on Penalties

Player Ratings as Liverpool Lose Community Shield on Penalties

Liverpool concluded their pre-season preparations with a penalty shootout defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield. After a poor first-half performance, the Reds looked by far the better team in the second and probably deserved to come away with the “trophy”. Liverpool fans should be optimistic about the season ahead after this one with many players yet to hit full fitness and Sadio Mane still to return. Alisson: 6 Unlucky with the Sterling goal. Had …
Outside The Box Option Can Provide Wing Depth

Outside The Box Option Can Provide Wing Depth

Liverpool fell to yet another pre-season defeat on Sunday as they were soundly beaten 3-0 by Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli at Edinburgh's Murrayfield Stadium. The performance was anaemic and sloppy and the Reds made a team who are two weeks behind them in preparations for the new season look far sharper and fluent. An interesting element of the line-up Jurgen Klopp started the game with was his use of Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the wide players -- sandwiching Divock …
Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana could be deployed in 'Jorginho' role next season says Klopp

Adam Lallana was given another run at the base of Liverpool's midfield, in what Jurgen Klopp called the 'Jorginho' role, during the first half of Liverpool's 3-1 win at Bradford City on Sunday. Klopp experimented with Lallana in this position for the second half of Liverpool's win at Prenton Park last Thursday and wanted to see the former Southampton player in the same role again at Bradford. Two goals from James Milner (one penalty) and another Rhian Brewster strike gave …
Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

When you’re in the 22-24-year age bracket as a footballer, you come to a crossroads. No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …
