Jordan Henderson says Liverpool will continue to move forward despite Napoli defeat

Jordan Henderson says Liverpool will continue to move forward despite Napoli defeat

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes The Reds will bounce back in the right way from their Champions League defeat at Napoli on Tuesday night. Jurgen Klopp's side lost 2-0 in Naples on the opening night of their Champions League title defence, thanks to a penalty from Dries Mertens and an injury-time goal from Fernando Llorente. Up until Napoli's disputed late penalty, the game was a pretty even affair with Liverpool's passing in the final third the main reason The Reds …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

This is the second year in succession that I'm sitting down to ponder how Liverpool were beaten at the Stadio San Paolo, but the circumstances feel different. Last season, it was more or less a case of a wretched team performance, but on the whole the Reds turned in a decent display at this time, even if their attacking bluntness returned. They only had themselves to blame in 2018, yet this time around they can legitimately feel hard done by …

Player ratings as Reds fall again in Naples

Player ratings as Reds fall again in Naples

VAR. Going great, isn’t it? I honestly didn’t think we’d do particularly well tonight but I thought we’d at least have the VAR on our side after Saturday’s debacle.  Never mind. Chelsea on Saturday etc, we move on. Just one more thing before the ratings - Peter Walton is a big weirdo.  Adriannnnn, like Rocky! Adrian (8): That’s an amazing save, you know the one I mean. Genuinely, Roy of the Rovers stuff. Does his best with the penalty.  TAA …
Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven for the Napoli game tonight

Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven for the Napoli game tonight

Liverpool return to European competitive action tonight when they face Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples. We've had a go at predicting Jurgen Klopp's starting eleven. Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli side proved very stiff opposition for The Reds at the same stage of the competition last season. Liverpool will need to be at their best to get anything from the game in Italy. Jurgen Klopp is without Alisson and Nathaniel Clyne through injury while Naby Keita and Divock Origi …

Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool will bid to reach their third consecutive Champions League final this season and it is hard to see anyone stopping them. The Reds only lost the 2018 final due to a pair of howlers from Loris Karius, and they have been close to invincible since replacing him with £67 million man Alisson. Their home form is superb, the fans create a sensational atmosphere inside Anfield and that really should be enough to carry them all the way again in …
Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
