Finely Poised - Key Stats as Liverpool Draw With Bayern

Liverpool’s Champions League Last 16 tie with Bayern Munich is extremely finely poised following a tense and interesting 0-0 draw at Anfield that left Liverpool ultimately frustrated but bang in the tie.

Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich: Observations as Reds restrict Bayern

Liverpool restricted Bayern Munich to zero shots on targets on Tuesday night, putting in a strong performance in the absence of Virgil van Dijk. The Germans created no big chances, stifled by a make-shift centre-back partnership of Joel Matip and Fabinho while Jurgen Klopp's side were unable to capitalise on their chances, particularly from Sadio Mané's skewed shot inside the first-half. Fabinho shows his worth at centre-back Tasked with filling in at centre-back in the absence of Virgil van Dijk, …

Player Ratings as Bayern hold off Reds at Anfield

What are we all making of that, then? I'm quite satisfied with the result. Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich and all the Reds must do now is score and avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena. Given Bayern's home record that does seem a mission. However, there was enough to see tonight that suggests Liverpool can fancy their chances. With Virgil van Dijk back we'll hopefully see an improved Andy Robertson (there's a clue about his rating), whilst Trent Alexander-Arnold will be …

Jurgen Klopp gives latest injury update ahead of FC Bayern clash

Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp says that Gini Wijnaldum are progressing well but The Reds' boss is still dependant on minute-by-minute reports on the availability of Dejan Lovren.

Anfield, Europe, Liverpool - Here We Go Again

Liverpool, Anfield, Europe. It’s a combination that has a real history of magic. How many great teams have come to Anfield, expecting to get a result, and been summarily turned over, the sheer force of the stadium, the crowd and the team pulling through. To be fair, in my lifetime, at least, that has certainly been helped by managers that have thrived in European competition. Rafa Benitez was an absolute master of the two-legged knockout, and Jurgen Klopp has a …

Jurgen Klopp enjoys a little more choice in team selection for Bournemouth match

Jurgen Klopp enjoys a little more choice in team selection for Bournemouth match

Liverpool welcomed back three players to full training this week to give manager Jurgen Klopp some much-needed options as The Reds prepare to meet Bournemouth at Anfield this weekend. Club captain Jordan Henderson returned along with Gini Wijnaldum, and perhaps most importantly, Trent Alexander-Arnold. The 20-year-old right-back, Alexander-Arnold, hasn't played since Liverpool's 1-0 win at Brighton in mid-January. That game was also Liverpool's last clean sheet. The return of Wijnaldum and Henderson gives Klopp far greater options in the central …

Liverpool vs Bournemouth Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool host Bournemouth off the back of two poor performances and two poor results, that have seen their lead at the top of the Premier League cut to three points. Now they know that with City looking to use their game against Everton to move top of the league before the Reds get a chance to respond, it’s vital that Liverpool return to form and fast.
