Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …

World-class Gomez showing why fan patience is priceless

Liverpool's 1-0 win over Everton in the FA Cup has to go down one of the most memorable Merseyside derbies of all time. It may not have been the Premier League, which clearly takes precedence this season, but the nature of the victory was a mixture of hilarious and commendable. For such an inexperienced Liverpool side to overcome their full-strength local rivals was an astonishing effort, when defeat looked on the cards prior to kickoff. While Curtis Jones earned the …

Liverpool defender basks in best moment of his young career-to-date

Liverpool youngster Nat Phillips was delighted with the "great team performance" Jurgen Klopp's Reds put in to overcome Everton in the FA Cup third round.

The 22-year-old centre-half then made his first-team debut for The Reds in the 1-0 win over Everton last weekend, partnering Joe …
Takumi Minamino - Analysis of Debut

Takumi Minamino - Analysis of Debut

When Liverpool announced the signing of Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg many fans were wondering what position he would play. Is he a centre midfielder? A number 10? A versatile attacker? Yesterday's game should put some of those questions to rest as Klopp deployed Minamino as the false nine, the Roberto Firmino role. Despite his debut being with an abundance of youngsters and fringe players where rustiness was expected, Minamino's first performance not only showed technical ability and skill but …

Jurgen Klopp delights in Minamino debut after derby win

Minamino made his first appearance for The Reds having joined last week from Red Bull Salzburg.

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …

Klopp gave a worrying injury update regarding Naby Keita

Jurgen Klopp says Liverpool's Naby Keita will also miss Sunday's FA Cup tie against Everton after the midfielder was injured in the pre-match warmup before Thursday's 2-0 win over Sheffield United. Keita was set to start in midfield against The Blades, however, he picked up what seems to be a groin injury in the pre-game warmup routine. James Milner then started in his place when the extent of Keita's injury was discovered. Speaking in his post-match press conference, Klopp confirmed …
What if... Liverpool hadn't signed Divock Origi?

What if... Liverpool hadn't signed Divock Origi?

‘It’s Saturday night and I like the way you move, Divock Origi,’ chants the Kop as the loveable Belgian forward comes on the 84th minute for Roberto Firmino in a last-ditch attempt to get one up on local rivals Everton yet again. Less than 10 minutes later, Origi had scored one of the most bizarre goals you’re likely to see and his song on the terraces was changed to a Sunday night with the addition of an expletive or two. …
