Match Report: Salah, Mané, Liverpool Top Every Table

Match Report: Salah, Mané, Liverpool Top Every Table

There’s a tradition in U.S. where high school (American) football teams will schedule Sister Mary’s School for the Blind for their homecoming weekend so they can show off a bit in front of their girlfriends before the big dance. This… was that. Where was Huddersfield Town in 2013/14? This is the match we wanted Crystal Palace to be. An already relegated side, H-Town capitulated faster than you could crack open your beer with Naby Keita scoring off of a pretty …
Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

Team of the Year Crystallises Liverpool's Progress

So Paul Pogba eh? What a huge shock and weird selection to the PFA Team of the Year that was! In this essay, I will… Just kidding. Whilst I do think it’s strange he’s been selected despite an inconsistent season, I could see how getting shoehorned into a 4-3-3 formation with a clear lack of individual central midfield candidates could end up with Pogba potentially getting in the team, maybe even with less votes than both Hazard and Salah, both …
Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

One of these days summer will actually come. It may feel like we’ll be forever chasing City, one point behind, in a perpetual spring where the temperature never climbs above frigid. But the calendar is in-fact progressing. We know that we’re not stuck in a time-warp because Joe Gomez and Oxlade Chamberlain are apparently ready for action. Some morning soon you’ll actually look out the window and see the sun and it will be time to consider Liverpool’s summer signings, …
What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

What's going on with Xherdan Shaqiri?

Many thought he was almost certain to start against Fulham on Sunday, but when Adam Lallana was included in Klopp's starting XI, the recent whispers around what is going on with Xherdan Shaqiri grew just that little bit louder. The Alpine Messi was not so long ago enjoying his best spell since joining Liverpool in the summer, scoring six goals and providing two assists in 11 games over the winter period, but his form then seemed to drop and his …
Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

A goalless draw at Old Trafford last weekend meant Liverpool's once-comfortable lead at the top of the Premier League table had been whittled down to nothing. They no longer had any margin for error. But it was a case of mistakes aplenty in the Merseyside Derby, and now the title race is out of their hands. The Reds preserved their 17th clean sheet with relative ease, but paid for a lack of creativity and, most of all, composure. In truth, …
A Strange But Abject Game - Liverpool 0-0 Man United

A Strange But Abject Game - Liverpool 0-0 Man United

Liverpool were held to a goalless draw at Old Trafford after an absolutely abject attacking display saw them fail to break down a depleted Manchester United side. The Reds started as the better side away from home, with an indirect free-kick inside a couple of minutes after De Gea was forced to handle a back-pass under pressure from Bobby Firmino, and Joël Matip was able to win his side a free-kick just outside the box with a rampaging run. Both …
Liverpool's Champions League preparations take a blow with news of Firmino virus

Liverpool's Champions League preparations take a blow with news of Firmino virus

Jurgen Klopp's preparations for Liverpool's Champions League tie with FC Bayern took a blow today with news that star forward Roberto Firmino missed Monday's training sessions with a virus. As reported in the Liverpool Echo, Firmino was unable to take any part in training due to the illness and it is unclear if he will be recovered in time to start against Bayern Munich on Tuesday night. On a day when Dejan Lovren also missed training - all but confirming …
Frozen Foxes Hold Liverpool to 1-1 Draw

Frozen Foxes Hold Liverpool to 1-1 Draw

Liverpool came into the match against Leicester with an opportunity to create a massive gulf between themselves and, best club in Europe, Manchester City. Rafa Benitez had done his part on Tuesday, beating City 2-1, but with injuries mounting and weather worsening, would The Reds be able to take full advantage? The line-up from Klopp was more confusing than inspiring. The shortage at right back was always going to call for something non-standard, but Klopp came out with Naby and …
Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

The striker’s contract is due to expire in the summer. Many fans are divided on whether to offer Daniel Sturridge a new contract or let him go for free. So, what shall it be? The England international has been at Liverpool for six years this month since January 2013. Yes, he has been injury prone, but he has also had some fine moments for the club. If you cast your mind back to his debut for Liverpool in the FA …
