Xherdan Shaqiri believes starting place in the derby win was just reward

Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri says his first Premier League start for The Reds since January was a reward for the hard work he's putting in behind the scenes at Melwood. The Swiss attacking midfielder put in an impressive display as Liverpool beat their Merseyside rivals 5-2 at Anfield on Wednesday night. The Reds' number 23 popped up with a well-taken finish to make it 2-0 early-on after some great work from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mané combined.

Why Liverpool Being Hated is One Huge Compliment

Why Liverpool Being Hated is One Huge Compliment

So this is how it feels to be hated. Feels good, doesn't it? Although Liverpool haven't exactly spent their post-glory days being liked the world over, there has never been too much animosity from the masses. Of course, Man United and Everton fans have understandably loathed them throughout, and other sets of supporters have also shown plenty of dislike, but this is different. For the first time in almost 30 years, the Reds are the team to hate more than …
Trademark Liverpool

Trademark Liverpool

I don’t know what the big problem is. “We are Liverpool, tra la la la la,” easily changes to, “We are Liverpool, all rights reserved, we’re the best football team in the land.” Adam Lallana won’t have much to do this season. Imagine the pride he would take in slapping TM’s on every road sign leading into the city. Yes, it’s been a while since we’ve had an off-pitch controversy, and when I say, a while, I mean several days. …
Clarity The Key for Origi

Clarity The Key for Origi

After weeks of conjecture, Divock Origi recently penned a contract that will see the Belgian remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Origi, who scored twice in Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona and the sealing goal in the Reds’ Champions League final victory over Spurs, had been linked with, among others, Real Betis. The former Lille academy product began the season well off the first team, barely even making matchday squads ahead of the likes of Daniel Sturridge. …
Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

Liverpool's Biggest Moments 2018/19 - The Premier League

The 2018/19 season has been over for a couple of weeks now, and it’s been a full month since the Premier League finished, so it seems like a good time to reflect on what was an absolutely scintillating campaign for Liverpool. Now, I wanted this list of moments to be a bit different for a couple of reasons: there are obviously a few that speak for themselves, which could make elements of a top five list a bit predictable. So …
Divock Origi: The epitome of a Jürgen Klopp squad player

Divock Origi: The epitome of a Jürgen Klopp squad player

What a week it's been for Divock Origi. First, he scores an 86th-minute winner against Newcastle to take the title race into the final day of the season. Then, due to an injury to Roberto Firmino, he gets given the nod to start against Barcelona in a Champions League semi-final. And scores twice. Who knew that back when he scored that iconic 96th-minute winner against Everton at Anfield back in December that it would be the start of things to …
Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

You know, I’d already got this article in my brain long before I saw this tweet from Michael Caley, the brain behind Caley Graphics xG maps. Caley is a brilliant football analyst and the insight that he offers in this tweet backs up other data that I’ve seen in other places, but the simple fact is as follows. Nevertheless, before I get into some of that data, I want to outline the point of this article. Klopp has been tinkering …
