Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

Under Pressure: Dynamic Diaz, Klopp's Man Management & Naby's New Role

It was another double header for the Under Pressure crew, and it was a review of the Reds' domestic cup double - already - this season as they won the FA Cup final on penalties against Chelsea at Wembley. In recent seasons it hasn't been a priority for Liverpool, mainly due to the strength of the squad available but this campaign has seen a real desire to succeed in all competitions. Phil Barter reflected on the ability of the manager …
History Is Being Written

History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …
Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Trent Alexander-Arnold A great game for this special talent. His attacking play is undeniable, with two brilliant deliveries nearly seeing both his giant centre-backs score in the first half. Showed guile and control throughout on the ball, and was a constant threat in possession. His defensive ability can no longer be in doubt. Great coverage, awareness and strength, against a very good European team. Was able to control situations with maturity and confidence, and is becoming a leader in this …
Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool are through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after beating Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate. Lautaro Martinez ripped one beyond Alisson just after the hour but Inter had the wind in their sails for all of two minutes before Alexis Sanchez picked up a second yellow. The reigning Serie A champions retreated, hoping for a counterattacking opportunity that never really materialised. They proved themselves to be an excellent side over the first two legs, and can take …

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …

Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

The position of fullback has perhaps seen the biggest evolution over the last few decades, especially at Anfield. The current versions are an attacking force of nature, with Andy Robertson’s endeavour and willing a delight to behold. On the opposite flank, Trent Alexander Arnold has become an absolute revelation, and sits firmly as the world's best attacking fullback. The periods before our current pair (and able backups) were often uninspired. To concentrate on the right sided fullback area, it was …
Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold all graduated through the Liverpool academy. The success of each is part of the clubs illustrious history, and it is always a joy to see homegrown talent succeed as Liverpool players. Within any historical football club, there are times when talent struggles to emerge due to the level of competition. There has been multiple false hopes in my lifetime, but there is still excitement when any …
The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational. The teams primary playmaker is transcending the fullback position. Any manager in world football (club football anyway) would have this man over any other, and his domination of the right hand side is becoming an on going problem for the opposition. Two great assists. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 He had the …
