Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Liverpool fell to a 2-0 defeat to Atalanta at Anfield in the Champions League. Goals from Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens sealed a deserved win for the Italians in a drab affair, marshalled by a referee, Carlos del Cerro from Spain, who was lax when it came to punishing overly physical play. The Reds, meanwhile, who made a host for changes to their team from the comfortable victory over Leicester City were abject throughout. All the personnel alterations lead to …
City Hold Liverpool At Etihad

City Hold Liverpool At Etihad

Liverpool go into the international break third in the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at The Etihad. Mohamed Salah's early penalty was cancelled out by Gabriel Jesus' equalizer and the Reds -- who had the fortune of Kevin de Bruyne missing from the spot, albeit from an extremely harshly awarded penalty -- held on for a more than merited result, which, on another day, could have been much more. After Diogo Jota's Champions League hat-trick …
Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Liverpool will welcome back all of their international players in the next day or two after last night's UEFA Nations League action. Some players - such as Caoimhín Kelleher and Divock Origi - didn't get any game time on Wednesday night. Kelleher and Origi were unused substitutes for Ireland and Belgium respectively. Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum were in action in the Netherlands' 1-1 draw away to Italy. For England, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson continued his journey back to …
Player Ratings for Liverpool 4-3 Leeds

Player Ratings for Liverpool 4-3 Leeds

Liverpool’s title defense started out in Jekyll-and-Hyde fashion as the Egyptian King oozed class, Big Virg created goals at both ends of the pitch, and numerous Reds were off the mark. Three points is three points and all that, but there are a lot of performances today that will be giving Klopp fits for days. Alisson – 6 Really wasn’t at fault for any of the goals. Maybe could have gotten a piece of Leeds’ opening goal, but that’s being …
It's make-or-break time for Naby Keïta

It's make-or-break time for Naby Keïta

As Liverpool gear up for the start of the 2020/21 Premier League campaign next weekend, Naby Keïta knows that now is the time to stake his claim for a regular starting spot in The Reds' midfield. The Guinea international who wears Steven Gerrard's famous number 8 jersey has endured a stop-start couple of seasons since his arrival from the Bundesliga in 2018. Liverpool paid £54 million for Keïta who had attracted the attention of several of Europe's top clubs - …
Wijnaldum will only be fully appreciated after leaving

Wijnaldum will only be fully appreciated after leaving

As we prepare for the start of the new Premier League season, there are only two transfer stories keeping Liverpool fans preoccupied. The continued pursuit of Thiago is the standout talking point, as the Reds try and get a deal for one of the world's best midfielders over the line. It is a frustrating saga that looks set to carry on for the foreseeable future, especially with the transfer window extending to 5th October. Then there's the future of Gini …
Liverpool prepare for departure as Koeman dreams of Gini

Liverpool prepare for departure as Koeman dreams of Gini

As news broke in Spain on Tuesday night, it appeared that Gini Wijnaldum was edging ever closer to a Liverpool exit. Jürgen Klopp's ultra-reliable number 5 is on his way to Barcelona, it seems. According to Spanish publication sport.es, Ronald Koeman hopes to make Wijnaldum one of his first signings since taking over at Camp Nou. With the Lionel Messi 'situation' up in the air, and likely to continue for some time yet, the Catalan club is looking to establish some …
Wijnaldum has no doubts about young Liverpool star's ability

Wijnaldum has no doubts about young Liverpool star's ability

Gini Wijnaldum claims he has not been surprised by Rhian Brewster's red-hot goalscoring form in Liverpool's two pre-season friendlies. Brewster came on as a substitute in The Reds' two games - the 3-0 win over VfB Stuttgart and the 2-2 draw with RB Salzburg. However, in roughly 80 minutes of action in those matches, Brewster has scored three goals. His two strikes to bring Liverpool back to level at 2-2 with RB Salzburg showed the youngster's fantastic eye for goal …
Wijnaldum remembers tough start in his first season at the club when discussing early 2020/21 fixtures

Wijnaldum remembers tough start in his first season at the club when discussing early 2020/21 fixtures

Liverpool's Gini Wijnaldum sees similarities between The Reds' tough start to the 2020/21 Premier League season and the beginning of the 2016/17 campaign. Wijnaldum just arrived at Liverpool in the summer of 2016 as one of Jürgen Klopp's first signings for the club. Liverpool were still completing the work on the new Main Stand at Anfield so had asked for permission to begin the season with three consecutive away fixtures. Those games were at Arsenal, Burnley and Spurs with Liverpool …
Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

Would replacing Wijnaldum with Thiago make Liverpool stronger?

A quiet summer is expected at Liverpool, as Jurgen Klopp again remains content with his squad, give or take the odd departure or new face. Former Southampton trio Nathaniel Clyne, Dejan Lovren and Adam Lallana have all moved on, having become symbols of Liverpool's past, while Norwich's Jamal Lewis could be a rare addition in the coming weeks. If there are two soap operas that may provide Reds supporters with some transfer drama, however, it is futures of Gini Wijnaldum …
