Liverpool’s Defence is Great – Until We Get Some Injuries

Liverpool’s Defence is Great – Until We Get Some Injuries

It’s been a pretty good start to the season for Liverpool Football Club, all things considered. The Reds currently sit as outright leaders at the top of the Premier League, they remain unbeaten and they have just secured qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League despite an overwhelming amount of pressure being placed on their decisive group stage match against Napoli. And to top it all off, Jürgen Klopp seems to have answered his last critics by steadying …
How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

No Salah, no Firmino and no Mane. The seven changes Jurgen Klopp made to his starting eleven at Turf Moor raised a considerable number of eyebrows last Wednesday, not least from myself. But subsequently, having collected six points from two potentially tough away fixtures against Burnley and Bournemouth, as part of a gruelling festive schedule are we right to think our boss is rotating the squad to perfection. For many years this is the one factor which has prevented very …

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Liverpool have a deeper squad than they have in previous years. This is not a fact that I’m going to dispute, although I’d definitely make (and will make) some arguments that that depth isn’t as deep as maybe it’s being made out in some areas, and certainly hasn’t drastically improved over the summer. Nevertheless, Klopp has slowly been building a deep and impressive squad that the four acquisitions in the summer have moved relatively close to being a very top …

Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Fabulous but Fab-less: Liverpool's Patience with Fabinho

Patience is a virtue. Sometimes, especially as football fans, we can struggle to see the bigger picture, the longer term, and we can get focused on the here and now. And we can start to question certain decisions. But we need to remember that a little patience never hurt anyone. Take Fabinho, for example. Liverpool’s first summer signing announced just two days after the Champions League final. There was an expectation amongst Liverpool fans that he would come into the …
Trent vs Clyne: Where Does the Difference Lie?

Trent vs Clyne: Where Does the Difference Lie?

It was, to my mind, a surprise to see Trent Alexander-Arnold start over Nathaniel Clyne at right-back for Liverpool's season-opener against West Ham on Sunday. Alexander-Arnold had only returned to the fold at the beginning of the Evian training camp, and when he came on in the penultimate friendly against Napoli just eight days before the clash with the Hammers, he was very much off the pace. A more convincing 65 minutes followed against Torino, but still Clyne, characteristically solid throughout …
A Back Four Ready to Compete? - Liverpool FC Squad Analysis

A Back Four Ready to Compete? - Liverpool FC Squad Analysis

Liverpool kicked off the season with a delightful 4-0 win on Sunday, conceding only two shots on target and rarely looking in trouble. The back four was among the youngest seen in recent memory during a Premier League game and played together like a group of players ready to kick on this year. Virgil van Dijk anchored a defence with an average age under 23 years old, continuing to prove himself the most gifted leader the defence has seen since …
Joe Gomez: The Next Carragher?

Joe Gomez: The Next Carragher?

Joe Gomez signed for Liverpool as an exciting young centre-back who at 17 years old had broken into Charlton's first team. In 18 first team starts he'd played both centre-back and right-back, showing his pace, power and surprising physicality given his age. Due to a spate of injuries in the squad, Gomez started his Liverpool career playing out of position as a left back. At 18 years old he looked assured, composed and ready for the challenge of playing for …
Liverpool Aim For Hot August

Liverpool Aim For Hot August

Believe it or not, we are now less than nine days away from the start of Liverpool’s 2018/19 season. The close of the transfer window is a week away. August 4th is expected to be the last warm-up for the starters as the Reds face Napoli in Dublin. They then face Torino on the 7th at Anfield in what should be a final run-out for squad players. AND IT BEGINS The season begins on Merseyside against West Ham on August …
