Premier League Goalkeepers: A Stats Analysis - Alisson To The Rescue?

Three of the top six will have new numbers ones in the coming season with Leno, Alisson and Kepa taking the place between the posts for Arsenal, LFC and Chelsea respectively. The market was so inflated that the Reds managed to sell our 25-year-old third choice keeper for 12 million pounds. Danny Ward …
Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

There are two weeks to go until the summer transfer window slams shut, locks and closes its shutters. Jurgen Klopp has apparently announced there will be no more signings with his comments last week - "We have everything we need for the next season because I don’t think we will do anything more, I’m pretty sure of that." Having written this piece for AI for the past two summers, this year I'm excited to bring you the Depth chart for …
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Worth the Wait

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: Worth the Wait

It's still yet to be a year since the day Liverpool signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain from Arsenal for £40 million. On the day he left, Arsenal fans had mixed emotions; on one hand, a fan favourite with undeniable talent had left, and that was a shame, but considering his ambitions to play in centre midfield, and a tidy £40 million for a player who was in the last year of his contract, it seemed a deal that was more than acceptable. …
Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Observations as Liverpool Surge into Champions League Semi-Finals

Liverpool battled from behind at The Etihad to record a 2-1 win in the second-leg of the Champions League quarter-final, taking one step closer to Kiev. A goal inside two minutes set the pulses racing as Manchester City came out all guns play, with Liverpool unable to string any momentum together in an attempt to gain some respite. There was an element of luck involved in ensuring the score-line remained just 1-0 as Leroy Sane saw his goal wiped out …

Liverpool 3-0 City: We're All Believers Now

Liverpool 3-0 City: We're All Believers Now

Watching Liverpool put on a tactical masterclass against Pep Guardiola from a darkened discotheque in Barranquilla, Colombia where I'm visiting family, was something I’ll never forget. I celebrated goals over iced-beer with a bunch of local Liverpool supporters who don’t let distance or language stop them from supporting a club that has more “alma,” soul, than any other European club. People are taking days off of work to see the Reds play on the other side of the world, and …

Sadio Mane’s Struggles Continue At Liverpool

Sadio Mane’s Struggles Continue At Liverpool

This time last year, Sadio Mane looked a potentially better signing for Barcelona than Philippe Coutinho. That’s how good he was. The Senegalese’s departure for the Africa Cup of Nations in January was a fatal blow to Liverpool’s season, and their title bid fizzled out completely without their destroyer-in-chief around. Come the end of the campaign, Mane had deservedly scooped Liverpool’s Player of the Year award, following a wonderful start to his time at Anfield. The 25-year-old started 2017/18 in …
