Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie. The Alpine Messi has been hampered by a niggling injury to one of those enormous calves of his and has barely featured this season for Klopp's …
Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Why do teams even bother scoring against us anymore? They know they’re going to lose either way, just save yourselves the late heartbreak and leave our sheet clean. More drama for the Reds as they left it until the last few minutes yet again to take all 3 points. It was a very unconvincing performance, perhaps unsurprisingly after an international break on an historically tough ground, while also being without Mohamed Salah. I don’t think many of us can take …

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …

Gini Wijnaldum couldn't hide his pride in Reds' performance after City win

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a win that is. Absolutely delightful to get another one over the cardigan-clad crybaby and put us a monstrous 9 points clear of City and 8 points clear at the top of the table. We were extraordinarily clinical when the chances and half-chances fell our way, while the Sky Blues couldn’t do enough to break us down more than once. All the talk will be about VAR as usual but pay no heed to that rubbish – every major …
Player ratings as Liverpool rattle Pep's cage once again

Player ratings as Liverpool rattle Pep's cage once again

An absolute thunderbolt from Fabinho combined with headers  from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané secured a 3-1 win for Liverpool against title rivals Manchester City on Sunday, moving the Reds nine points ahead of the Citizens and eight clear at the top of the Premier League. It was a match with no shortage of drama, nor a shortage of quality, Jurgen Klopp's men racing into a 3-0 lead and holding off the resistance City had to offer, bar what turned …
Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Marko Grujic vs Denis Zakaria - who suits the Liverpool midfield?

Liverpool’s midfield is a divisive topic, but one thing most fans can agree on is that reinforcements will soon be needed. Jordan Henderson is 30 at the end of the current campaign, Gini Wijnaldum turns 29 this month, James Milner is 34 in January and Adam Lallana is 32 in May.  Of the current crop of midfielders, only Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho and Naby Keita are closer to 25 than they are 30, and two of those have had injury troubles.  …
Liverpool 2-1 Genk: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Genk: Who Was Man of the Match?

Another unnecessarily nervy ending to a game we largely dominated. We’re making a bit of a habit of conceding every game despite the opposition creating very little. A win is a win, though, and it sees us move to the top of the group after Napoli drew with Salzburg. You’ve always got to be happy with three points, especially when key players were left out of the starting line up to keep them fresh for the weekend. Having said that, …
Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool climbed to the top of the Group E table with a 2-1 win over Genk at Anfield. Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain sufficed for the Reds, despite the concession of a goal to Mbwana Samatta. Having started the game in second place, Napoli's 1-1 draw with Salzburg in Italy means Jurgen Klopp's men will be top when they entertain Carlo Ancelotti's side on match day 5 on November 27th. Electing to make wholesale changes -- six …
