Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United

When Manchester United travel to Anfield, it's usually a big affair. It was even bigger an occasion than usual because on Sunday they travelled not just to Anfield, but to Anfield, the home of the Premier League Champions, for the first time in thirty years. Their players were spared the taunts that would likely have filled their eardrums from the first minute to the very last. In both that regard and the scoreline, they can consider themselves fortunate. Jürgen Klopp …

Colossal Fabinho standing tall while other Liverpool stars fade

When Marcus Rashford burst clear in Sunday's 0-0 draw with Man United, every Liverpool supporter on the planet must have feared the worst. The England striker is renowned for his blistering pace, and as he sprinted through on goal, the Reds' long unbeaten home run felt like it could go up in smoke, against the worst possible opponents. From nowhere, though, the marauding Fabinho appeared to save the day, racing back to thwart Rashford, muscling him off the ball and …

Big Man Centre Forward: The Next Step In Liverpool's Evolution

Big Man Centre Forward: The Next Step In Liverpool's Evolution

The attacking trident of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, and Sadio Mane has served Liverpool extremely well over the course of the last four years. But now, after umpteen defences burned and English and Champions League medals in their back pockets, the time feels right to break up the forward threesome. The Reds have now drawn a blank in three consecutive Premier League games and their attack has been culpable for this toothlessness. In times gone by, any responsibility for the …
Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign Ben White

Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign Ben White

After the injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, it was inevitable that the names of several centre-halves would be bandied about and linked to Liverpool. Sven Botman, David Carmo, Dayot Upamecano and Ibrahim Konate have all been suggested as antidote's to the Reds' personnel shortage in the heart of their defence. Perhaps the name most regularly circulated in the media, though, is that of Brighton and Hove Albion's Ben White. According to reports in the Liverpool Echo, the …
Observations as Liverpool stumble to stalemate against Red Devils

Observations as Liverpool stumble to stalemate against Red Devils

Liverpool failed to score for a third successive Premier League game, leaving Anfield visitors Manchester United clear of the Reds at the top of the league following a 0-0 draw. Despite a bright start, Jurgen Klopp's side toiled a little as the game went on and it was United who had the better chances in the closing stages, Alisson Becker on top form to deny both Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba. Here's a closer a look at a few topics …
Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United: Player ratings as Reds draw blank against arch-rivals

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester United: Player ratings as Reds draw blank against arch-rivals

This was an occasion for Liverpool to banish their rut. Instead, they've sunk further into it. The draw with arch-rivals United keeps the Reds three points off the pace, but above all it cements Manchester City's newly-established status as title favourites. Belief among supporters and among the players is clearly low. Liverpool aren't functioning as a unit given their makeshift defence and with every match the task of retaining their title is growing more difficult. Joel Matip's imminent return will …
Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup to play Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday?

Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup to play Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday?

Liverpool and Manchester United meet at Anfield on Sunday in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash. What starting eleven will Jürgen Klopp go with? The Reds are currently without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota while it looks like Joel Matip and Naby Keita are also losing their race to be fit for Sunday's game. This means Klopp has some huge decisions to make for this fixture thanks to Liverpool's ongoing injury problems. Alisson Becker is fit, …
Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign David Alaba As A Centre Half

Why Liverpool Shouldn't Sign David Alaba As A Centre Half

David Alaba has been linked to, among other clubs, Liverpool regularly recently. The Austrian defender is in the final six months of his contract with FC Bayern and can now negotiate with foreign clubs ahead of a possible free transfer in the summer. It was expected that Alaba, 28, would join Real Madrid but the Spanish giants -- who are also in negotiations to renew the contract of Sergio Ramos -- reputedly cannot pay the versatile defenders' €12M per annum …
