Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Jamie Carragher is right, Liverpool don’t tend to buy superstars. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Spurs, the former Reds centre-back heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield.  "It's not that Liverpool are just buying players with this special ability that nobody else sees these players," Carragher told Sky Sports. "[Andy] Robertson came from Hull City, [Gini] Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle United, Mohamed Salah had been at Chelsea, Sadio Mane had been in the Premier …

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.

However, they need not have worried. After a scrappy first half, Liverpool's young guns came out firing on all cylinders …
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 …

Tactical analysis: Henderson's new role in absence of Fabinho

By Reece Chambers When Liverpool signed Fabinho from AS Monaco in July 2018 for an estimated £40million, there was a degree of uncertainty as to what he would bring to Jurgen Klopp’s team.  He had previously played at right-back and centre midfield for Monaco, and did so to great avail, as he helped his side reach the UEFA Champions League semi-final.

Minamino Signing Means New Liverpool Transfer Strategy

Minamino Signing Means New Liverpool Transfer Strategy

Pending a successful medical, Liverpool will sign Japan international Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg in January. After impressing twice against the Reds in this season's Champions League group stage, the 24 year old will join £7.25M after the European Champions elected to trigger his paltry release clause. Capable of playing across the front three, off the striker or even as the most advanced central midfielder in a three, Minamino could well prove to be another shrewd piece of transfer business …

Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

It was arguably the most frustrating aspect of the irritating 1-1 draw with Napoli in the latest Champions League - Fabinho picking up a fairly serious ankle injury.
