Liverpool Vs Crystal Palace | Tactics, Team News and Stats

Liverpool Vs Crystal Palace | Tactics, Team News and Stats

Alan Pardew, another manager who divides opinion, brings his Crystal Palace side to Anfield on the back of a good start to the season, albeit more inconsistent in recent weeks. The Eagles have won two, drawn one, and lost three of their previous six, although they were unlucky not to beat Manchester United last weekend. On Sunday, at 4pm, Klopp's side are looking to continue with their unbeaten run, and build on the victory over Chelsea last Saturday followed an …
Alberto Moreno - Revitalised and Reborn

Alberto Moreno - Revitalised and Reborn

Alberto Moreno or 'Albie' as he's lovingly known, is fast becoming a fan favourite at Liverpool football club. A player who in his own words started the season with an "inner rage", due to not being given a fair opportunity to play; has taken his chance with both hands and is flourishing under Jürgen Klopp's new management. He arrived in the summer of 2014 with a great sense of hope. An expectation that we may finally have cured our left-back …
Square Pegs in Round Holes for Klopp?

Square Pegs in Round Holes for Klopp?

One of the biggest issues that Klopp faces this season is how to fit in all of his best players into the team; his philosophy requires width, pace, penetration and a strong four-man defence, he also likes to employ a 4-2-3-1 formation that allows for quick counter-attacks with width, and offers rigidity and solidity when defending. However, four of his best players - Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge & Benteke - cannot all fit into this 4-2-3-1 system without compromising some of …
Injuries Could Temporarily Solve Our Striker Puzzle

Injuries Could Temporarily Solve Our Striker Puzzle

Daniel Sturridge returned to Liverpool’s ranks against Norwich as a man under pressure. In fact, many Liverpool fans had pinned the potential successes of our season all on him, just as they had done last year with sad consequences. Liverpool’s squad for 2015/16 has been bolstered though by the incoming Benteke, Ings and Origi, which would have lifted some of the pressure of Sturridge had Liverpool’s attacking play so far not been so stale and laboured. Despite the poor attack, …
Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Five observations from Man Utd vs Liverpool

Writing an article like this is never easy after a horrific viewing of an abysmal display against one of your biggest rival’s both for league positions and pride. To make matters even worse, I was surrounded by a family of Manchester United supports who jumped on my back (not literally) when it came to every decision and goal which went their way. So, without further ado, let’s see what us as fans gathered from the meeting between United and Liverpool …
Manchester United v Liverpool Preview | Predicted LFC Line-Up

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview | Predicted LFC Line-Up

It should be a bloody holiday.   Even if it's not ascended to the reverie of a day we can take off work, there surely will be bloodshed this weekend.  In one of the greatest rivalries in the history of football, we find mediocrity at the moment. Manchester United have yet to win convincingly in England, and Liverpool's bubble might have been crushed against West Ham two weeks ago.  Neither side will be down for this match, however.  It's better than …
Skrtel and Lovren Costing Liverpool More Than Just Goals

Skrtel and Lovren Costing Liverpool More Than Just Goals

In some clubs central defensive pairings form the basis of championship winning seasons. But the Skrtel and Lovren hardly gives a platform for even a top four challenge. The three clean sheets of the season while welcome, should not deceive anyone. They have serious defects with their individual games and their pairing. Clean sheets are not conclusive proof of solidity of a team’s defence. What is the point is racking up three clean sheets and conceding three in the next …
The Fans' Verdict on Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

The Fans' Verdict on Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Liverpool fans rarely agree with something as a collective. Nobody is alike so it's obvious opinions will differ. I could write an article summarising how I thought the transfer window went for Liverpool but plenty of others are doing that so I decided to ask different people what they thought of our business. There will be no 'agendas', just honest answers from a variety of fans. I spoke with Kev Kelly (@KevKelly92) a writer for FanFeud, Jay Riley (@Jay_78_) co-host of …
Ranking Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Ranking Liverpool's Summer Transfer Business

Well, the international break is sadly upon us and Liverpool, alongside the rest of the Premier League, are four games deep into their long season. Four games sounds like a reasonable time to take stock so the international break will probably be welcomed by many managers who are completing last minute checks on their squads. Of course, Liverpool have known their squad for the 2015/2016 season for some time with business wrapped up over a month before the season began. …
Clyne and Gomez - Positions Boxed Off?

Clyne and Gomez - Positions Boxed Off?

It may only be three matches into their Liverpool careers but things couldn't have started much better for Anfield new boys Nathaniel Clyne and Joe Gomez. Three matches. Three clean sheets. Zero defensive errors leading to a shot by the opposition. This is quite a contrast to the team that ended last season conceding six goals to Stoke with the defence looking all at sea. So what can we put this new found defensive solidity down to? The new found confidence …
