Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool cruised into the quarter-final of the Champions League after a 2-0 victory over Red Bull Leipzig in Hungary. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the six times winners a deserved victory over the Bundesliga side. Were it not for poor finishing, with Diogo Jota, Mane, and Salah all guilty of blowing big chances, the Reds would have won by a far bigger margin. With Fabinho back marshaling the midfield -- allowing Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak to …

Reds forward back in full training as Liverpool prepare for top-four slog between now and May

Liverpool's Diogo Jota returned to full training with the first-team squad at the club's AXA Training Centre this week. Jota has been out of action since picking up a knee injury in The Reds' 1-1 draw away to FC Midtjylland in their Champions League group clash back in December. The former Wolves forward had made a fantastic start to his Anfield career since his signing last September, scoring 9 goals already. In a week where rumours were circulating that Jordan …

Liverpool forward set to return to full training this week as Reds look to bounce back from derby defeat

Liverpool's Diogo Jota is expected to resume full first-team training this week, providing a much-needed boost for The Reds. Jürgen Klopp's side lost 2-0 at home to Everton on Saturday evening in their first derby defeat at Anfield in over 21 years. There was more bad news in that game as captain Jordan Henderson went off with a first-half injury. It looked like a groin problem for Liverpool's experienced skipper. Henderson is expected to miss the next four to five …
Klopp's update on James Milner's injury

Klopp's update on James Milner's injury

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp confirmed that James Milner's injury could be a lengthy one following The Reds' 3-1 defeat at Leicester on Saturday. A crazy seven-minute spell late in the game at the King Power Stadium turned Liverpool's 1-0 lead into a 3-1 deficit. Mohamed Salah had put Klopp's men in front with a well-taken finish after some sublime play from Roberto Firmino to provide the assist. Leicester bounced back to win through goals from James Maddison, Jamie Vardy and …
Set Piece Toothlessness Hindering Liverpool After Defensive Injury Nightmare

Set Piece Toothlessness Hindering Liverpool After Defensive Injury Nightmare

Liverpool's defensive injury crisis has hindered them in so many ways this season. Losing Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip has obviously hamstrung the defending champions in defence, not that you would necessarily know it from the goals conceded column. The break glass in case of emergency defenders -- Fabinho and Jordan Henderson -- have coped admirably with their new tasks and Liverpool, on the whole, have been solid at the back. The 7-2 evisceration at Villa Park, …
Thiago Influence Could Help Liverpool Evolve From False 9 Tactics

Thiago Influence Could Help Liverpool Evolve From False 9 Tactics

Roberto Firmino was back to his best in Liverpool's recent 3-1 win away to Spurs. The Brazilian opened the scoring on the cusp of half time and showed the movement, touch, and sublime link play of old as the Reds scored their first league goals in over a month. The number 9's goal, a tap in after his intelligent delayed run saw him arrive in the six-yard box in time to tap in Sadio Mane's left-footed cross, was his sixth …
Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri: What Role Will The Swiss Maestro Play Against Manchester United?

Xherdan Shaqiri fell out of favour last season. However, Liverpool have lacked a creative spark over their last three games and, with a crunch clash coming up against Manchester United, it is integral they find it again. Shaqiri looked sharp in the FA Cup last Friday, and may be the man to reignite The Reds. But will he feature from the start, as a substitute, or will Klopp opt for another player in his place? Shaqiri's finest moment in a …
Jota's emergence springs Firmino back into life for Liverpool

Jota's emergence springs Firmino back into life for Liverpool

The real Roberto Firmino, or at least something close to it, has returned. The Brazilian has had a 2020 to forget on an individual footballing level, even if he was crowned a Premier League champion during the middle part of the year. That Club World Cup-clinching goal against Flamengo last December feels like a lifetime ago now, when Firmino was in excellent form and clinched yet more silverware for his club. While others have had major impacts for Liverpool throughout …
Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool were denied all 3 points at the Amex Stadium against Brighton and Hove Albion by a last-minute VAR-ridden penalty. It wasn’t the best of performances by The Reds but Diogo Jota’s excellent opener looking to have been enough to give Liverpool the win. Unfortunately, those incompetent imbeciles at Stockley Park felt the need to meddle and award The Seagulls a late spot-kick. Pascal Gross made no mistake from 12-yards and snatched a point for the home side. Brighton fully …
