Player Ratings as Reds have easy night in demolishing Huddersfield

After the pain and agony of recent victories, where Liverpool had to wait for the goals, it was nice to have a night like that. This season has been a running demonstration of a Huddersfield squad just not good enough to cut it in the Premier League, and they were put to the sword at Anfield, as the Reds toyed with them for a 5-0 win. They were off, up and running in 16 seconds, no less, when Naby Keita …

With possibly six games to go this season, do we know Liverpool's best midfield trio?

As Liverpool's season reaches boiling point, Jurgen Klopp has some big, big decisions to make regarding the midfield heartbeat of The Reds' team for the remaining games. Not counting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - who is still recovering after a year out due to a horrific knee injury - Liverpool have seven midfielders to choose from for their Premier League and Champions League run-ins. The seven midfielders available to Herr Klopp are Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, Gini Wijnaldum, Naby Keita, James Milner, Adam …
Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …
Julian Brandt - The missing link for Liverpool?

Julian Brandt - The missing link for Liverpool?

It was clear last summer that Liverpool were in search of a creative midfielder. Nabil Fekir was identified as the man to fulfil that role but, as we all know, that deal fell through. Despite having a much-improved defence and showing signs of increased maturity to their play, a lack of creativity from the Liverpool midfield has been all too apparent at various times this season and the answer to that problem could well be Bayer Leverkusen’s, Julian Brandt. Born …
What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

Many thought he was almost certain to start against Fulham on Sunday, but when Adam Lallana was included in Klopp's starting XI, the recent whispers around what is going on with Xherdan Shaqiri grew just that little bit louder. The Alpine Messi was not so long ago enjoying his best spell since joining Liverpool in the summer, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 11 games over the winter period, but his form then seemed to drop and his …

Liverpool's Jordan Henderson out of Fulham game while Naby Keita faces late fitness test

Jurgen Klopp today confirmed that Liverpool's captain Jordan Henderson will miss this Sunday's Premier League trip to Fulham. The Reds' midfielder went off after just 11 minutes against Bayern Munich on Wednesday night. Henderson had twisted his ankle but tried to continue. However, even after some bandaging, he could not run off the injury. Speaking today at his pre-game press conference, Klopp said:
"With Hendo, we made further assessment and we know now that it’s serious enough probably to …
Liverpool's Mersey Misery Shows How Much We Miss Oxlade-Chamberlain

Liverpool's Mersey Misery Shows How Much We Miss Oxlade-Chamberlain

It was a frustrating afternoon at Goodison Park in the second Merseyside derby of the season as Liverpool stuttered to a goalless draw in what could turn out to be a pivotal result in the title race. The second half, in particular, was a bit of a cause for concern as the Reds struggled to make much of an impact on the game, and Klopp's substitutions certainly raised a few eyebrows. The introduction of James Milner and Adam Lallana in …
A Changed Canvas: Where Does Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In Upon His Return?

A Changed Canvas: Where Does Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In Upon His Return?

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘absence makes the heart grow fonder’. In a footballing context, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is the proof in the pudding, with Liverpool fans longing for his return in the build-up to the Premier League and Champions League run-in in the hopes it’ll provide a crucial boost in attempts to pip Manchester City to the title while offering another chance at No.6. Albeit being named in Liverpool’s revised Champions League squad for the knockout stages – interpreted by …
Patience - Liverpool Shouldn't Rush Ox's Return

Patience - Liverpool Shouldn't Rush Ox's Return

Liverpool fans were devastated when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain picked his serious knee ligament injury against Roma in April. Despite having been playing regularly for the club for less than six months, Ox had already demonstrated that he was a crucial part of the Reds’ midfield, adding a dynamism and energy that made a real difference, scoring critical goals, assisting Mo Salah on a regular basis and rapidly becoming one of the Reds’ most influential pressing players. It’s understandable then, that his …
11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

Liverpool survived an incredible game of football to see off Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield. But it was a game that left the already struggling Reds bloodied, bruised and increasingly threadbare, with Rafa Camacho finishing the game at right-back, Bobby Firmino and Adam Lallana in central midfield, and Joël Matip played his first full ninety minutes since breaking his collarbone back in early December against Napoli. It’s fair to say then, that the last thing Liverpool need would be another …
