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 …
Robertson says Reds are focused on silverware, not records

Robertson says Reds are focused on silverware, not records

Liverpool's Andy Robertson insists that records are "irrelevant" to Jurgen Klopp's squad and that their only focus is winning more silverware this season. The Reds' Scottish left-back was speaking to Liverpoolfc.com after yet another Premier League victory for the European and World champions. Spurs were the latest victims of the Reds juggernaut when a Roberto Firmino strike sealed a 1-0 win in London on Saturday evening. That victory meant Liverpool have now officially made the best ever 'start' to a …
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 …
Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Jurgen Klopp raised a few eyebrows with his team selection for Liverpool's recent Premier League victory away to Aston Villa. With Fabinho walking a suspension tightrope ahead of this coming weekend's top of the table clash with Manchester  City, the Brazilian sat the game out. In his stead, most assumed that Jordan Henderson -- who played the number 6 role for two and a half season's under Klopp -- would slot in. However, in a move that surprised all Liverpool …
Indispensable but under-rotated - Liverpool's flying full-backs

Indispensable but under-rotated - Liverpool's flying full-backs

If ever there was a goal to highlight how influential Liverpool's full-backs are on the team, the Reds' second goal against RB Salzburg was exactly that. From Andy Robertson stepping into midfield to the ball being transferred to the opposite side of the pitch for Trent Alexander-Arnold to find his on-running full-back partner with a delightful low cross. It was an exceptional goal from two unbelievably talented full-backs. The levels both of them have been performing at for more than …
A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

To lay everything out on the table from the start, here, any talk of Liverpool having won the Premier League title already this season is absolutely absurd. You can certainly lose the title in the first eight games. But with only 21% of the season completed, there’s no chance you can win it in that time. Last season, the Reds led Manchester City by seven points at the turn of the year, lost just one game all season, accumulated the …
Liverpool's Full Backs Add New Attacking Dimension

Liverpool's Full Backs Add New Attacking Dimension

A prominent and recurring feature of Pep Guardiola's trophy-laden spell as manager of Manchester City has been the Catalan's utilisation of his expensively assembled full backs as ostensible centre midfielders. The positioning of his full backs has provided his City side with numerous advantages. Firstly, it allows for effective triangle shapes to be created between the full back, winger and attacking midfielders. This adds layers to the Etihad sides' attack and allows the likes of De Bruyne and the Silva's, …
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal - Player Ratings as Reds stroll past Gunners

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal - Player Ratings as Reds stroll past Gunners

Liverpool made it three wins out of three to start the Premier League season, with a superb 3-1 win at Anfield, on an evening when the Reds were dominant for large parts of the game. After a first half that Jurgen Klopp's side controlled, Joel Matip gave them the lead with a superb header off a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner. Mo Salah scored an early second-half brace to put the game beyond Arsenal, even as Lucas Torreira grabbed the Gunners a …
The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

Liverpool Football Club currently has quite possibly the best full-back pair in the world. Last season was record-breaking for both Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Shattering the assists records, while covering the flanks of the best defence in the league. Oh, and they also won the European Cup in one of the most memorable campaigns in recent history. It doesn't get better than that. We are a week away from the first league game of 2019/2020 and to the surprise …
Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

It seems to the case every single year now but this summer transfer window had the potential to be the biggest in the clubs history. With Liverpool just needing to make subtle tweaks to a squad that amassed 97 points and a sixth European Cup, it was, on paper at least, a much easier task than in years gone by.  The Reds didn’t need a £60million-rated goalkeeper being courted by many of Europe’s elite. They didn’t need to part with …
