Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

International breaks are annoying, aren’t they? Fresh off the back of three pulsating Liverpool victories in a week, approaching the back end of the season, ready for the final run-in, and now we get two full weeks of no Liverpool action, and having to watch international teams play largely pointless fixtures against the backdrop of hoping nobody from LFC gets injured. But this article isn’t going to be a gripe at the lack of Liverpool action over the next couple …
Under-appreciated Trent Becoming A Key Player For Klopp

Under-appreciated Trent Becoming A Key Player For Klopp

A lot has been made of the fact that Joe Gomez has been out injured for Liverpool this season – and the impact that that has on Liverpool’s defence. But comparatively, not as much has been made of the impact of losing Trent Alexander-Arnold for a period of time – with Trent missing six of Liverpool’s last eleven games through two injuries and making his return as a sub against Bournemouth. So how much impact does Trent have on the …
Anfield, Europe, Liverpool - Here We Go Again

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 …
Key Points in Liverpool's Title Challenge

Key Points in Liverpool's Title Challenge

It wasn't the result we were all hoping for against Leicester at Anfield. In the wake of an unexpected slip-up from City, the snowy, sub-zero Merseyside night presented a perfect opportunity for Liverpool to further freeze out their nearest title rivals by moving seven points clear at the top. It wasn't to be, and a 1-1 draw ensured Klopp's side edged to five points clear of Guardiola's reigning champions. It was a point gained rather than two lost upon reflection, …
Three Games At A Time - Liverpool Need To Keep Plugging Away

Three Games At A Time - Liverpool Need To Keep Plugging Away

Every stage of a Premier League title race is crucial. I say that now to get it out of the way. The start was crucial – Liverpool winning their first six games of the season set the baseline. When the start is done, the next period leading up to Christmas is crucial – Liverpool managed to win nine games in a row including 7 in a row in December. The post-Christmas spell is critical, and I’ve already written about this …
11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

Liverpool survived an incredible game of football to see off Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield. But it was a game that left the already struggling Reds bloodied, bruised and increasingly threadbare, with Rafa Camacho finishing the game at right-back, Bobby Firmino and Adam Lallana in central midfield, and Joël Matip played his first full ninety minutes since breaking his collarbone back in early December against Napoli. It’s fair to say then, that the last thing Liverpool need would be another …

Can Liverpool win the league?

Can Liverpool win the league?

Is it finally Liverpool’s year? Well our friends at betopin.com think so! After a record-breaking start to the season, Jurgen Klopp’s team are top of the league and remain unbeaten after the first 18 games. They have managed 15 wins and 3 draws from those 17 matches, and still only top Manchester City by four points.

It's A Two Horse Title Race, Get Used To It

It's A Two Horse Title Race, Get Used To It

As the full-time whistle blew on Manchester City's first league defeat of the season on Saturday evening, it wasn't just Chelsea fans celebrating. Liverpool fans knew that a Chelsea win would leave the Reds out clear at the top of the Premier League for a week at least, N'Golo Kante and David Luiz providing the goods with two goals that knocked the stuffing out of City. However, some Tottenham and Arsenal fans were jubilant too. With Spurs defeating Leicester and …
Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

With Liverpool cruising to a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, Jurgen Klopp maintained the 2 point deficit to Man City. Another clean sheet and a highly satisfying win, albeit with a dogged rather than spectacular performance. There's a certain symmetry to our away results against Watford since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers. From the pitiful 3-0 reverse in his first season, to a thrilling 3-3 draw last season which pointed to our underlying defensive deficiencies. To then …
