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 …

Oxlade-Chamberlain will keep pushing himself after another match-winning performance

Liverpool beat Genk 2-1 at Anfield on Tuesday night and the match-winner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, believes he has more to offer Jurgen Klopp's side as he gets back near his best. Despite Liverpool's dominance, the teams were level at 1-1 going in at half-time. Oxlade-Chamberlain popped up with an excellent low finish, on the turn, to put The Reds back in front in the 53rd minute. His goal was the difference at the end and ensured Liverpool went top of their …
Predicting Liverpool's starting lineup for the Champions League clash with Genk tonight

Predicting Liverpool's starting lineup for the Champions League clash with Genk tonight

Liverpool play Belgian side KRC Genk in the Champions League at Anfield tonight. We've had a go at predicting Jurgen Klopp's starting lineup for the game. Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri will miss the game through injury. Alisson Becker will start in goal for The Reds. Joe Gomez will most likely start alongside Virgil van Dijk in central defence. Dejan Lovren seems to be ahead of Gomez in Klopp's pecking order at the moment and, therefore, the Croatian international will …

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Klopp’s key to unlock midfield’s potential?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Klopp’s key to unlock midfield’s potential?

It was a return to form that was one of the most welcome in recent memory. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who endeared himself to Liverpool fans everywhere during the 2017/18 season, reminded Reds last night what they’ve missed during his arduous absence after his cruel knee injury. The dominant, powerful and threatening Ox was back with a bang, scoring two fabulous goals and putting in a solid all-round performance in Liverpool’s comfortable 1-4 win over Genk – giving a timely reminder that …
Why Gini Being Let Out Of His Bottle Would Boost Liverpool

Why Gini Being Let Out Of His Bottle Would Boost Liverpool

It wouldn't be an international break in the last year or so without two things happening. One, Liverpool fans worrying about any of their stars being injured in a meaningless friendly on the other side of the globe; or two, the timelines of Reds fans being festooned with clips of Georginio Wijnaldum plundering goals for the Dutch national team. The Netherlands manager, Ronald Koeman invariably plays Wijnaldum as the most advanced midfielder, ahead of Frenkie De Jong and Marten de …
Genk 1-4 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Genk 1-4 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

So it begins. A gruelling period for Liverpool’s squad which will only leave three full rest days until the 23rd January (that’s days between games that are not classed as recovery). However, this particular fixture carried a little extra weight. Having won seventeen consecutive league matches, Liverpool put in one of their worst displays over the past year, with a drab, insipid and utterly dull affair against Manchester United, for all but fifteen minutes. Having already lost one group stage …

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain revels in aftermath of goalscoring performance

Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says he's delighted to be back in action after being restricted to watching his team's success last season. Speaking on BT Sport after The Reds' 4-1 win in Belgium, in which 'The Ox' scored twice, Liverpool's attacking midfielder said:
“I’ve definitely missed it. It’s nice to be back out there. It’s a special tournament to play in, a competition we all grew up wanting to play in one day. “It was nice to be back out …
Genk 1-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Genk 1-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

A win on the road in the Champions’ League Group Stage - only had to wait 2 years for it. Genk posed a bit of a threat, mainly from offside positions, but the Reds came out comfortable victors. It was a shame to not be able to see out the game with a clean sheet, but when you’ve got Dejan Lovren in the team you have to accept that goals will be scored against you. With that said, let’s get …
