Inter Milan & The Knockout Stages

Inter Milan & The Knockout Stages

After that ridiculous Champions League last 16 draw, Inter Milan were finally confirmed as Liverpool’s next opponents. The tie is a tantalising match up between two European heavyweights, and one which Jürgen Klopp’s men should eagerly await. Last season, the Serie A saw Antonio Conte’s team finally capture the Italian League title, after Juventus monopolised the Scudetto for nine long years. The make up of that Inter side was both controlled and ultra organised, with Conte implementing his plan over …

The Champions League Group Stage Stars

As far as Champions League Group Stage campaigns go, things could not have gone any better for Liverpool this season and after getting the better of AC Milan recently, it meant the Merseyside men picked up a maximum 18 points from Group B. A tally that not only saw them top their four-team mini-league but also afforded them seeded status in the draw for the Round of 16 and with that usually means a safer passage to the last eight, …
Konaté vs Zlatan

Konaté vs Zlatan

It seems to be common within modern cinema, to pit an unstoppable force against the immovable object. It’s often a tale of strength, arrogance, and sometimes a legendary icon pitted against a worthy opponent. The last few weeks (indeed much of the season), has seen a certain rhetoric take place regarding certain players. The likes of Naby Keïta and Ibrahima Konaté, both possess tremendous attributes as footballers. The former has the potential to be an elite level midfielder, yet injuries …
AC Milan 1-2 Liverpool: Player ratings

AC Milan 1-2 Liverpool: Player ratings

Liverpool became the first English team to win all six of their Champions League group stage matches by beating AC Milan 2-1 at the San Siro. The Reds must have felt almost guilty as they crushed Milan's Round of 16 dream even after making nine changes from the weekend's win over Wolves. Fikayo Tomori had put the hosts in front, only for Mohamed Salah and Divock Origi to smartly convert on the rebound either side of half time. A damning …
Liverpool  2 - 0 FC Porto - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 0 FC Porto - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 A peaceful night's work for the giant Brazilian. Even with the odd moment (where things looked precarious), he offers limitless assurance. Neco Williams - 6.5 Some composure is required, as steady and dependable is what is needed to be Trent's deputy. Got caught out a few times, and against better opposition it could have been costly. As Liverpool started to dominate, he became more prominent. Kostas Tsimikas - 6.0 You could tell Virgil wasn’t next to …
Sadio Mane, his form and his contract situation

Sadio Mane, his form and his contract situation

Only Mohamed Salah has more goals than Sadio Mane in the Premier League this season.  A lot of people will - perhaps rightly - focus on Salah being the top scorer. But the fact Mane is amongst the goals this season should not be overlooked. For most wide forwards, a haul of 11 Premier League goals is decent. In fact, most would be more than happy with that sort of return.  But Mane had 40 goals across the previous two …
Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Kostas Tsimikas is going to give Jurgen Klopp a selection headache.  The Greece international impressed yet again against Arsenal as he extended his run of starts without conceding a goal to seven. In fact, Liverpool are yet to concede in a game Tsimikas has started.  The 25-year-old hasn’t put a foot wrong and many fans believe he should be a starter ahead of Andrew Robertson. The Scotland captain has had a few dodgy moments with his positioning and his end …
Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold all graduated through the Liverpool academy. The success of each is part of the clubs illustrious history, and it is always a joy to see homegrown talent succeed as Liverpool players. Within any historical football club, there are times when talent struggles to emerge due to the level of competition. There has been multiple false hopes in my lifetime, but there is still excitement when any …

The New Sporting Director

The New Sporting Director

Any new role undertaken at a sporting team (let alone a major club like Liverpool FC), brings a certain amount a risk, especially when the role was previously engineered with brilliance. FSG have made some high profile mistakes along the way, yet the overall structure of the club is now one to be admired. As Michael Edwards gets ready to depart his role as Sporting Director, Julian Ward was immediately confirmed as his successor. As with the celebrated American TV …
