A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s 2013/14 title challenge was defined by moments. The  moment Jordan Henderson saw red against Manchester City. The  moment Steven Gerrard lost his footing and Demba Ba emerged through on goal. The  moment Iago Aspas produced an abhorrent corner to set up a Chelsea counter. All painful, pivotal nails in the coffin for Brendan Rodger’s side. Sunday’s 2-1 win against Tottenham carried similar weight. Manchester City will know their destiny remains in their own hands, with maximum points from their …
More to Mo Salah's game than goals

More to Mo Salah's game than goals

The Premier League has seen few goalscorers more prolific than Mohamed Salah. After hitting a record 32 last season, the Egyptian is going strong once again in the Golden Boot race.

The battle for top individual honours with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Spurs' Harry Kane promises to be intense. Salah's ultimate contribution to Liverpool's cause will almost certainly be …

Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Since that painful day, the main source of the drama, Dejan Lovren has been buried, resurrected and replaced. The man taking over for him was the right back on that October afternoon, Joe Gomez. Simon Mignolet was the man in goal, was …

The Premier League season starts in just a few days. And the spectre of the World Cup still hangs over the Premier League’s top six. This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that. Liverpool need to be one of the beneficiaries. It’s expected that Roberto Firmino and his Brazilian teammate Alisson Becker will start against West …
Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino’s Goals Are Making Him The Complete Liverpool Striker

Roberto Firmino is an unbelievable footballer. The Brazilian is one of the most intelligent players to have represented Liverpool in years, possessing a footballing brain many can only dream of. His thought process is always a split-second quicker than most of the mere mortals around him. He sees passes before they can be made, finds pockets of space before defenders have had time to notice and presses as effectively as any frontman in Europe. It wasn’t a lightning-fast start at …
