Injuries aside, Liverpool's lack of fight and mentality is inexcusable

Just when you thought you'd pretty much seen it all this season, the unthinkable happens. Everton's first win at Anfield since 1999, combined with a hammer blow of an injury to Jordan Henderson and what was, at best, an abject performance saw Liverpool's season plummet to a new low. This was a fourth straight defeat at Anfield after going almost 70 games at home without losing, and was another game in which the Reds failed to score or muster a …

Laboured Liverpool Fall To Anfield Defeat To Everton

Liverpool fell to their first Anfield Merseyside derby league defeat to Everton since 1999 after a 2-0 reversal against their neighbours. The loss means the defending champions have now lost four home league games on the spin.

The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

Liverpool’s goal drought never really bothered me. Some went to the extreme, claiming the system had been found out and Jurgen Klopp needed to make wholesale changes to get them firing again. In truth, it was a mixture of bad luck and bad finishing. I wrote about it in detail for work.  The Reds had the chances, but they kept falling to the wrong players. Liverpool’s system and success is built on ensuring certain players get the volume required to …

Of course, regularly not having three defenders of that calibre is harmful to a team's prospects of keeping clean sheets. But it's the Reds' midfield that has borne the brunt of the defences injuries. Fabinho, who has excelled in the new role that he's learned on the hoof, has had to moonlight …

Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri fell out of favour last season. However, Liverpool have lacked a creative spark over their last three games and, with a crunch clash coming up against Manchester United, it is integral they find it again. Shaqiri looked sharp in the FA Cup last Friday, and may be the man to reignite The Reds. But will he feature from the start, as a substitute, or will Klopp opt for another player in his place? Shaqiri's finest moment in a …
