Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Contrary to popular belief, Mohamed Salah is much more like Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. The Egyptian superstar may possess the latter's gorgeous left foot and low centre of gravity, but there is so much more about him that screams Ronaldo. Away from the grinning face and all-round likeable personality, there is a huge ego where Salah is concerned - he is someone who knows exactly how good he is, precisely how many goals he has scored and is well …

Klopp says Liverpool are expecting three players to return to full training this week

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is expecting three of The Reds' senior players to return to full training this week ahead of Sunday's clash with Manchester United at Anfield. The three players Klopp was speaking about are Fabinho, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren. Fabinho has been out since picking up an injury in the 1-1 Champions League draw with Napoli back in November.

Debunking the Fabinho myth

Debunking the Fabinho myth

A lot has changed for Liverpool over recent seasons. In the past, when a star name was ruled out through injury fans would count down the days until his return. Now, however, talk turns to whether or not they even get back into the team upon their recovery. When Fabinho hobbled off against Napoli, fans feared the Reds would struggle without him. For the first part of the 2019/20 campaign, a case could be made that the former Monaco man …

Youngsters Pose Food for Thought for Klopp After Derby Masterclass

We all knew that widespread changes were likely for Liverpool's FA Cup tie with Everton, and that's exactly what we got. Mass hysteria greeted Klopp's team selection ahead of kick-off at Anfield, with many on social media questioning why more senior players hadn't been included alongside the likes of Curtis Jones, Neco Williams, Harvey Elliott, Nat Phillips and Pedro Chirivella. However, they need not have worried. After a scrappy first half, Liverpool's young guns came out firing on all cylinders …
Jurgen Klopp on Dejan Lovren's injury against RB Salzburg

Jurgen Klopp on Dejan Lovren's injury against RB Salzburg

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Dejan Lovren's injury relapse against RB Salzburg in the Champions League will not be the start of a long-term concern. Lovren, once again, had to be replaced by Joe Gomez in Tuesday night's impressive 2-0 win for The Reds in Austria. The Croatian defender was also substituted in the first half of Liverpool's 3-0 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday. On Tuesday, Lovren was passed fit to start against RB Salzburg and he put …
Liverpool Power Into Last 16 After Salzburg Win

Liverpool Power Into Last 16 After Salzburg Win

Liverpool advanced to the last sixteen of the UEFA Champions League as Group E winners after a 2-0 victory away to Salzburg tonight. Two goals in two second half minutes from Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah sufficed for the defending Champions in a game where the final score flattered Jesse Marsch's hosts. Salzburg had an opportunity to progress themselves with a win and this informed their early tactics as they went for the jugular from the kick off. Takumi Minamino, …
Dejan Lovren injury update

Dejan Lovren injury update

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp doesn't believe Dejan Lovren's injury will keep the Croatian international centre-back out for too long. Lovren has proved to be a steady replacement for the injured Joel Matip who is not expected back for another couple of weeks at least. In the 3-0 win at Bournemouth on Saturday, Lovren went off in the first half under the guidance of the physio team - Lovren himself wanted to play on until half-time and have it assessed then. …
