Kai Havertz vs Houssem Aouar: Who should Liverpool sign?

Kai Havertz vs Houssem Aouar: Who should Liverpool sign?

If reports are accurate, Liverpool plan to flex their financial muscle in the near future. Countless outlets have linked the Premier League leaders with Jadon Sancho while Kylian Mbappe remains a dream target for fans. The new link to Nike has only strengthened the belief that one of these two could soon be plying their trade at Anfield.  However, they aren’t the only players reportedly on the club’s wishlist. According to David Maddock of the Daily Mail, Liverpool are long-term …
Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

It was arguably the most frustrating aspect of the irritating 1-1 draw with Napoli in the latest Champions League - Fabinho picking up a fairly serious ankle injury. The Brazilian midfield linchpin has been one of the standout performers for Liverpool since the mid-point of last season, and his influence on the side has grown so much so that he's arguably the first name on many fans' teamsheet. So seeing him hobble off after just 19 minutes against Napoli was …
Liverpool 1-1 Napoli: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-1 Napoli: A Tactical Breakdown

Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli are a formidable force. Last season, they were an Alisson save away from knocking Liverpool out of the Champions League in the group stages. They were also one of the few teams to utterly outplay Liverpool over the course of last season, as they won 1-0 at the San Paolo stadium, a result that was rather kind to Liverpool. Both Liverpool and Napoli entered this game not quite at their best level, with Napoli enduring issues off …
Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

It’s another win for Jürgen Klopp’s seemingly unstoppable behemoth. Despite Mohamed Salah only fit enough to start from the bench, Liverpool managed to secure another three points, taking their total to 37 points, from a possible 39. The old adage about winning when not playing well has certainly seemed relevant to Liverpool since the start of the season, but Liverpool are close to riding out their luck. Despite winning 12 of their opening 13 league fixtures, Liverpool have been underwhelming …
Fabian Ruiz: The Ideal Reds Reinforcement

Fabian Ruiz: The Ideal Reds Reinforcement

All is not rosy in the garden for Liverpool's Champions League group opponents, Napoli. The Ancelotti-coached Serie A team are in the midst of a crisis started by the club's president film producer, Aurelio De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis, concerned about his teams start to the season, attempted to force the Napoli squad on a training retreat in order to reverse their poor form. The San Paolo stadium team find themselves 7th in the Serie A table and second, behind Liverpool, …
Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

Oxlade-Chamberlain vs. Palace: To Start or Not to Start?

What did you learn from the international break? Very little, right? The absence of domestic football left a gaping void, forcing us to actually do other things with our lives and perhaps even contemplate watching England play. If there's one thing that the last week or so has taught us, it's that Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain remains a formidable footballer and a gem of a character. The 26-year-old scored and assisted for England, against Montenegro and Kosovo respectively, further suggesting he will …
The perfect back-up to Fabinho

The perfect back-up to Fabinho

It's difficult to impress when your side loses 6-2 over two matches but Genk midfielder Sander Berge certainly caught the eye against the European champions. According to reports, the Reds are interested in signing the 21-year-old. Though this isn't confirmed, talk is he has an £18million release clause in his deal. To Genk, that is a massive fee. To a Premier League club, however, that is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. Especially when Berge has many traits …
Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …
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's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Jurgen Klopp raised a few eyebrows with his team selection for Liverpool's recent Premier League victory away to Aston Villa. With Fabinho walking a suspension tightrope ahead of this coming weekend's top of the table clash with Manchester  City, the Brazilian sat the game out. In his stead, most assumed that Jordan Henderson -- who played the number 6 role for two and a half season's under Klopp -- would slot in. However, in a move that surprised all Liverpool …
