Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

Liverpool Players Who Could Break Into The Euro 2024 England Squad

With England having successfully dispatched Iran 6-2 in their opening game, it gave the nation a spirited start to an otherwise strange World Cup tournament. The winter break seems bizarre, the one love arm band debate is on going, but in between we saw the three lions turn out a pretty ruthless and efficient display. With a few grumblings over the initial squad selection by Garth Southgate, that subject can now be shelved, and allow for the group stage matches …
The Kids (Some) are Alright!

The Kids (Some) are Alright!

It maybe apt that we are focusing on ‘the who’ specifically (maybe one for the dads there), but there was plenty to digest on the back of Liverpool’s third round passage in the Carabao Cup against Derby. Jurgen Klopp utilised the entire spectrum of his squad with experienced internationals, squad players, youth talents and those unseen on this stage before. Excitement and forgiveness are two unique traits that are naturally afforded to youngsters seen as ‘coming through’ and that was …
Fábio Carvalho - The Kid Isn't Ready Yet

Fábio Carvalho - The Kid Isn't Ready Yet

The long process in finally signing young Fábio Carvalho came to a close in the summer, with the Fulham target finally making the move to Merseyside. When he arrived, he was to be the understudy in a couple of positions, with senior and established operators ahead of him. When he did finally arrive, Liverpool were still the Reds of old, but right now they are something else entirely. So far this season the Reds have been on a roller coaster …

Ajax 0 - 3 Liverpool - Champions League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 Started well, could do little but cover his angles as the ball struck the post in the opening moments, and looked steady enough through the opening stages. Was mostly untested as the reds took control through the second half. Trent Alexander Arnold- 7.0 Back in as a starter, he looked unsure on the ball and tentative early on in his defensive work. Nearly created a big chance early on with a lazy inside ball. …

How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

Steven Gerrard & Luis Suárez are Liverpool’s most notable legends of the recent past, and were players that were often relied upon to propel their respective team to greatness. Though Luis actually played with Stevie for the entirety of the Uruguayan's Anfield stay, Gerrard was at that point far from the powerhouse he once was. Luis became the talisman of his era, and nearly gifted Stevie the ultimate prize of Premier League glory. Gus Poyet once remarked how Liverpool would …

Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

What a lovely palate cleanser. After the horror of the first 3 games of the season, the Reds were able to let out a big exhale of tension with a record-matching victory of nine goals over Bournemouth. But what were the Key Stats as Klopp's men put the Cherries to the sword? Goals Goals Goals Liverpool got this record margin of victory from a similarly impressive xG difference of 3.23 to 0.29. Trebling that with finishing is needed too, of …
Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

The Starters: Alisson Becker – 7 Well positioned to clear or gather any slightly overhit long ball, which came in useful once or twice. Didn't have much to do, but did it well. Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 What a strike! Trent looks like he's got something back after an underwhelming start to the season, but today he looked ready to win, and comfortably. Not every pass comes off as envisioned, but he gets enough of the hard ones right, putting …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Two games, two draws, four points dropped. Liverpool's start to the 22/23 Premier League season has been less than ideal on and off the pitch. Performances have been well below what is required, the squad is short of quality in midfield and the injuries are mounting up. Liverpool have failed to win their first two Premier League games, with disappointing draws against newly-promoted Fulham and Crystal Palace. Hyperbole abounds, with some people already writing off the title this season and …
Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

If you had the chance to listen to the latest edition of ‘Rate, Don’t Hate’ podcast on the Anfield Index, you’ll know that I’m all for some form of shake-up within this current Liverpool team. As it stands, the injury crisis is alarming, and will make certain decisions a necessity when the times comes to picking the eleven for next Monday evening. What we do know is that Darwin will be joining that injury list for the next few weeks, …
Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 1 - 1 Crystal Palace - Man Of The Match

Harvey Elliott The teenager started, and was the bright spark of very few positives for the Reds. His youthful enthusiasm means he is currently a must in the first eleven, and hopefully with some Naby shaped control in the middle (and 11 men on the pitch), he can continue his good form against Man United in a weeks time. His willingness to bring Mo & Trent into play was evident, and his decision making on point when possession was needed. …
