Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Over the last year or so, Liverpool have had an exceptional record in tying down their key players to new deals. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane -- among others -- have all penned new contracts to see them remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Absent from that list of renewals, however -- despite being just as key a cog to the Reds' winning machine as the aforementioned striking trio -- has been Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Since …

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017.

Dwight McNeil Liverpool's Outside the Box Backup LB

Looking at Liverpool's squad, it is clear to see that the Reds aren't afraid to think outside the box when developing players into new tactical roles.

The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

People are going out of their way to not credit Liverpool for their ridiculous season to date. As things stand, VAR has been used as a reason the Reds find themselves 14 points clear with a game in hand. Rival fans have also claimed Jurgen Klopp has been lucky, with the table-toppers avoiding serious injuries, apparently. The latest narrative is that the European champions have few world-class players and that the majority of those being praised are only impressing because …
Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Something changed the night Liverpool lost to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final. At that point, the Reds were still seen as plucky underdogs - a team who played fantastic football and were as entertaining as anyone, both for good and bad. Unless you were a rival supporter, they were easy to like, and it will have been hard not to feel some level of sympathy for them after their nightmare in Kiev. That defeat hurt and Liverpool …

Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Liverpool kept their Premier League undefeated run intact with a 2-0 win over Watford at Anfield in Saturday's early game. A brace of goals from Mohamed Salah was enough to seal the win for the Reds in a limp, tired looking performance against the Premier League's bottom team. Jurgen Klopp elected to change formation to a 4231, and make three changes from the Champions League victory away in Salzburg. Naby Keita dropping out for Xherdan Shaqiri and Andrew Robertson being …
