Klopp gives injury update ahead of Ajax clash

Jürgen Klopp gave Liverpool fans an update on the squad's injury-list this week as The Reds prepare to start their Champions League campaign away to Dutch giants Ajax. Virgil van Dijk will most likely miss the rest of the season after Jordan Pickford's horror challenge on Saturday. Thiago Alcântara was also injured in the Everton game. Richarlison earned himself a straight red card for his late tackle on the Spain international midfielder late in the game. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com this …

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …

It's make-or-break time for Naby Keïta

As Liverpool gear up for the start of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign next weekend, Naby Keïta knows that now is the time to stake his claim for a regular starting spot in The Reds' midfield. The Guinea international who wears Steven Gerrard's famous number 8 jersey has endured a stop-start couple of seasons since his arrival from the Bundesliga in 2018. Liverpool paid £54 million for Keïta who had attracted the attention of several of Europe's top clubs - …
Why Thiago Could Be Liverpool's Robin van Persie

Why Thiago Could Be Liverpool's Robin van Persie

After losing the 2011-2012 Premier League title on goal difference to Manchester City, Manchester United looked to improve their firepower by signing Arsenal forward Robin van Persie. The acquisition of the Dutchman -- who arrived at Old Trafford for a fee of £22,500,000 -- proved to be inspired with the Red Devils romping home to the title the next season, scoring the most goals and finishing eleven points over their Manchester neighbours. Van Persie, who was 29 upon his arrival …
Newcastle United 1-3 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Newcastle United 1-3 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool signed off the season in style and finished on 99 points after a 3-1 win against Newcastle at St. James’ Park. Dwight Gayle opened the scoring in the 26th second after the back four were caught napping at a free kick. Fortunately, though, the Reds dug in once again and pulled a victory out of the hat. In goal, Alisson started as expected but had virtually nothing to do - I feel like I’ve said that rather a lot …
Key Stats as Liverpool celebrate trophy lift with a bang

Key Stats as Liverpool celebrate trophy lift with a bang

Liverpool briefly returned to an earlier version of themselves where everything was a bit chaotic, they didn’t have two competent centre-backs and they were scoring goals for fun, as they won 5-3 against Chelsea in their final home game of the season, on a night where the Premier League trophy lift took precedence over the actual football. But what were the key stats from a fun night at Anfield? Midfield Goals Keep On Coming One factor that was spoken about …
Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Liverpool had their 100% winning record at home in the league taken away from them, after poor finishing and inspired keeper saw them frustratingly draw 1-1 at home to Burnley. Andy Robertson's arching header gave the Reds a merited lead before the visitors -- who were only in the contest thanks to heroics from keeper, Nick Pope -- stole an equaliser through an angled Jay Rodrigues volley. The hosts had two clear penalty shouts denied in a frustrating afternoon. With …
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley - Player Ratings as Reds are made to pay for profligacy

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley - Player Ratings as Reds are made to pay for profligacy

A combination of an inspired Nick Pope in the Burnley goal and some shoddy Liverpool finishing meant that the Reds' perfect Anfield record for the Premier League season brought to a halt with a 1-1 draw against Sean Dyche's side. Andy Robertson gave the Reds the lead in the first half, but Jay Rodriguez equalised late in the second, as the Reds endured a frustrating afternoon. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - 6/10 Nothing he could've done for …
Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Liverpool's title party was brought to an abrupt end after they were walloped 4-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade Chamberlain own goal condemned the full-strength, yet at times shambolic Reds to a heavy defeat. Despite some good chances, the visitors -- many of whom looked to feeling the impact of their league winning celebrations -- fluffed several chances and the hosts capitalized on all their opportunities. …
Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Liverpool were back in Premier League action for the first time in over three months and it was an absolutely rubbish game of football. A 0-0 draw at Goodison Park feels like a story we’ve heard before, and sadly Liverpool’s wait for the title will now extend beyond their home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they dropped points for just the third time all season. The Lovren Effect Dejan Lovren replaced the injured Joël Matip with fifteen minutes …
