Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

Key Points That Klopp Needs To Address In The World Cup Break

With the remaining Reds that won’t be heading to the World Cup in Qatar, it represents an opportunity to realign what has veered off course this year. Jurgen Klopp and Pep Lijnders will undoubtedly be laying out a route back to consistent success, and I think we would all like to see that old mentality, old drive, and much loved intensity return, when the Premier League resumes in late December. These first team players are not boarding their national team's …

Why Liverpool could sign Declan Rice in January

Why Liverpool could sign Declan Rice in January

The first phase of this enthralling Premier League season is now in the dust, and ridiculously, the World Cup in Qatar begins this coming Sunday. This whole international competition is a complete farce, from the moment the destination was announced, until the moment it ends. It’ll bring controversy, injuries, upset and fatigue. Yet the mid-season stop (in many ways) helps Liverpool to recalibrate their own campaign and presents them with an opportunity to get one or two deals over the …
Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

Southampton (H): What Lessons Did We Learn?

The performance proved to be good enough, but the result was all that truly mattered against Southampton on Saturday. In our last game before the World Cup, Liverpool simply couldn’t afford to surrender any further ground in their fight for a top-four finish. Ultimately, the Reds did prevail and in a certain sense, there’s a slight disappointment the break comes at a time when a sense of momentum was being built. However, as yesterday showed there’s plenty still to work …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - Premier League Player Ratings

Liverpool 3 - 1 Southampton - Premier League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 9.0 Brazil's number one, in his last start as a red before the World Cup. He was superb, and was able to stand out once again. Trent Alexander Arnold - 6.0 England’s most talked about player, came back in for the impressive Calvin Ramsay. Was solid enough throughout and really seemed intent on being a consistent presence in the back. Subbed - 87 mins Andy Robertson - 8.0 The Scot’s turn to start in the …
Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

Lessons Learned in the Reds' Victory Over Spurs

A vital three points was obtained at the Spurs stadium, as Liverpool breathed some new life into a faltering league campaign. All the headlines were naturally grabbed by Mo Salah, as a ninth goal in eight games ensured the Reds at least kept the top 4 within their sites. There were a few other standouts from the game that it was impossible to ignore as the penultimate league match before the World Cup saw all three points return to Anfield. …
Tottenham 1 - 2 Liverpool - Premier League Man Of The Match

Tottenham 1 - 2 Liverpool - Premier League Man Of The Match

Tottenham 1 - 2 Liverpool - Premier League Man Of The Match Mohamed Salah A sensationally gifted and important player. His killer instincts killed off Spurs in the first half, and the point of the spear was as sharp as you could ever want. With Nunez acting as the jagged edge, and Bobby the assured grip, this three man attack had some lovely and complimentary elements to it. Mo showed everything he needed in that first half, and made the …

Tottenham 1 - 2 Liverpool - Premier League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 Looked a little shaky on 15 mins as Spurs exploded with two chances, but did enough to keep the ball out. Was steady enough barring that. Had to make some good saves to keep the Reds in the game, and could do little about the Kane goal. Trent Alexander Arnold - 6.0 A brilliant cross field ball to Nunez set the trend for Trent, on the ball anyway. He struggled with quick paced attacks …
Liverpool 2 - 0 Napoli - Champions League Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 0 Napoli - Champions League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 Was maybe a consideration to come out, but his importance in keeping his team in games is clear. Very little to do, except for the odd pot shot in the opening half. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Was surprisingly taken off against Leeds. Was tested by a pacy attack, and was pretty reserved in his attacking play. Was assured defensively with a clear intent to cover his zone. A solid game. Subbed - 86 mins …
Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool vs Napoli: Full XI or Kids?

Liverpool's 3-0 win over Ajax on Wednesday night clinched their spot in the knockout round of the UCL. This puts Liverpool in a familiar position: one game left to play, with nothing on the line. In the extremely rare event that Liverpool beat Napoli by 4, Liverpool would finish first in Group A. However, in any other result, the final table standings remain unchanged, with Napoli on top of the group, and the Reds in second. This brings up one …
