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.  …
James Milner believes Liverpool have had to further evolve already this season

James Milner believes Liverpool have had to further evolve already this season

James Milner says this season has seen a need for Klopp and co to continue evolving Liverpool's playing style when facing teams focused on defending. The Reds have won 10 of their opening 11 Premier League games, only dropping points in the 1-1 draw away to Manchester United. This has been achieved while also going top of their Champions League group after four games and progressing to the quarter-finals stage of the Carabao Cup. It goes without saying that an …
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 …

Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

It was not a vintage performance. It was far from a European night at Anfield that will be remembered for long. But, in the end, Liverpool got themselves a 2-1 win over Genk that put them top of Group E, and took a big step towards qualification for the Round of 16. Gini Wijnaldum's early goal was cancelled out by Mbwana Samatta's header just before half-time. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped up to score the winner, and become the Reds' joint …
Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

A game-by-game mentality: How Liverpool can win the Premier League

To lay everything out on the table from the start, here, any talk of Liverpool having won the Premier League title already this season is absolutely absurd. You can certainly lose the title in the first eight games. But with only 21% of the season completed, there’s no chance you can win it in that time. Last season, the Reds led Manchester City by seven points at the turn of the year, lost just one game all season, accumulated the …
100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Topple Leicester City

Player Ratings as Liverpool Topple Leicester City

The Reds keep marching on after a dramatic 95th-minute penalty from James Milner sealed all 3 points. Liverpool should have had the game wrapped up much earlier but wasted a number of opportunities, allowing Leicester the chance to level late on. However, it was a thoroughly deserved win which will undoubtedly boil the piss of the rest of the Premier League, so that’s nice, isn’t it? Adrian – 5 Was decent up until the goal, but you can’t be letting those …
What makes English wonderkid so special?

What makes English wonderkid so special?

There have been countless false dawns at Liverpool. Players tipped for greatness who ultimately fail to live up to the hype and fade into obscurity. Even those who do carve out a successful career in football regularly reach the heights promised. Suso is turning out for AC Milan, he’s been linked with Spurs and Barcelona but moves failed to materialise and he still calls the San Siro home. The Italian side are European royalty but they’re in decline.  Krisztián Németh …
