Virgil Loss Will Be a Huge Blow But Liverpool Are Still Brilliant

Virgil Loss Will Be a Huge Blow But Liverpool Are Still Brilliant

Let's get the captain obvious statement out of the way at the beginning, shall we? Liverpool will miss Virgil van Dijk during his injury lay off, which, per reports, could last anything from six to nine months. If you could manufacture the perfect centre half in a lab, equipped with elite physical, mental, technical and leadership attributes, then the Reds' towering Dutchman would be the ideal prototype. Any team -- Barcelona with Lionel Messi, FC Bayern with Robert Lewandowski, to …
Klopp gives injury update ahead of Ajax clash

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 …
Analysis: Adrian, Alisson and Liverpool goalkeepers

Analysis: Adrian, Alisson and Liverpool goalkeepers

It’s pointless to turn one player into the scapegoat for the 7-2 loss to Aston Villa. The majority of the team had arguably their worst game in a red shirt and it’s a game you just have to take on the chin, safe in the knowledge Jurgen Klopp’s teams always react.  The compilation videos serve no purpose other than to antagonise. They don’t explain or theorise why something might’ve happened and instead just show mistakes and errors.  Adrian has been …

Liverpool did not spring any transfer surprises as the deadline passed plus there was an injury update on Alisson Becker's situation. Alisson Becker injury update Liverpool were without Alisson for the 7-2 drubbing at Villa Park on Sunday night.

Liverpool, the High Line and Perception

Liverpool, the High Line and Perception

Like it or not, perception is often more important than reality, at least in the world of football. For example, scoring a goal can see a player’s match rating jump from a 6/10 to an 8/10 and a misplaced pass that results in a big chance basically undoes all the prior good work. Liverpool are currently dealing with an unfounded narrative. The champions may have a 100% record in the Premier League but there’s a feeling they’ve been fortunate in …
Impressive Liverpool Put Gunners To The Sword

Impressive Liverpool Put Gunners To The Sword

Liverpool made it three Premier League wins from three with a convincing 3-1 win over Arsenal at Anfield. Despite going behind to an Alexandre Lacazette goal, the Reds rallied and sealed the win with strikes from Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson and Diogo Jota to seal a deserved win, which, on another night, could have been by a far bigger margin. From the outset, it was clear that Arsenal’s playbook would mirror the one they employed last season and in the …

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Key stats from an imposing victory

Liverpool capped off a glorious weekend with a commanding triumph against potential title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, maintaining their 100% start to the season. Here are some of the standout facts and figures from a key early win against Frank Lampard's 10 men. Outstanding Fabinho unruffled at centre-half Back in February 2019, Virgil van Dijk's suspension and Joe Gomez's injury forced Fabinho to slot-in as a centre-half when Bayern Munich visited Anfield.

Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool travelled to 'potential' title contenders Chelsea in their opening away game in the league and came out deserved winners in a professional, controlled performance. Liverpool made one forced change in defence with Fabinho being forced to line up in defence along side Trent Arnold, Van Dijk and Robertson due to injuries to Gomez and Matip. There were pre match talk about the drop in Alisson's form and how his performance levels were dropping to Mignolet's levels. Part of that prediction …
Mané Brace Sees Liverpool Burn The Bridge

Mané Brace Sees Liverpool Burn The Bridge

A brace from Sadio Mané saw Liverpool continue their winning start to their title defence with a 2-0 win over 10 man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Reds, who handed a debut to Thiago off the bench, were comfortable throughout -- despite conceding a penalty which Alisson saved -- and Andreas Christensen's red card, for an utterly stupid foul on Mané, paved their path to a win. From the get-go it was clear that the hosts game plan was to …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …
