An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

For all the talk of the need for Liverpool to reinforce their defence with new signings, their most consistent players ply their trade in the area. Andy Robertson and Fabinho -- previously a defensive midfielder who is learning to play in the heart of defence on the fly -- have been the Reds standout performers so far in an attritional, compressed season. With the long term injuries to both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, the Champions' preferred centre-half pairing, …
Fabinho Proving Himself As Top Class Liverpool Defender

Fabinho Proving Himself As Top Class Liverpool Defender

After taking a few months to settle into his new surroundings after his move from Monaco, Fabinho has consistently been brilliant for Liverpool since joining the club from Monaco in the summer of 2018. As the teams defensive midfield general, the long-legged Brazilian played a prominent role in the Reds having the best Premier League defence in the 2018/2019 and 2019/2020 seasons, campaigns where the club won the Champions League and Premier League respectively. And now, thanks to an injury …

Another setback for Liverpool as defender sustains "serious injury" during England training camp

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez is the latest Red to suffer an injury this season with the young centre-back reportedly having sustained a "serious" setback at England training camp. Jürgen Klopp and his backroom team will await the results of further tests over the coming days to determine the extent of Gomez's injury. The story broke on Wednesday afternoon with the only detail shared by The Athletic being that Gomez had suffered a "knee injury". It seems certain that Gomez is …
Player ratings as Liverpool take a point from the Etihad

Player ratings as Liverpool take a point from the Etihad

The Liverpool fan-base were surprised by Jurgen Klopp as he went for both Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota against Manchester City, the jury remaining out on whether it was the right decision as the Reds drew 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Mohamed Salah's penalty got Klopp's men off to the perfect start after Sadio Mane was fouled by Kyle Walker, with Gabriel Jesus' equaliser proving to be the only other goal in the game as Kevin de Bruyne missed a …
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 …
Liverpool's Atalanta Academy Appearances Point To Bright Future

Liverpool's Atalanta Academy Appearances Point To Bright Future

Diogo Jota's hat-trick and Liverpool's overall performance were the main talking points from the Reds' 5-0 hammering of Atalanta last Tuesday. But it shouldn't be lost in the narrative that the English champions featured four homegrown, academy produced players over the course of the 90 minutes in Bergamo. Rhys Williams slotted in comfortably at centre half next to Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones -- alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson -- was part of the midfield three and Trent Alexander started …
Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier with a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield. The Reds went a goal down early on but once again showed an incredible mentality to battle on and steal all three points. We weren’t at our best but the result is the most important thing, especially in this horrifically congested, soulless season. In goal, Alisson had very little to do and didn’t have much of a chance for the West …
Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota saw Liverpool fight back from 1-0 down to beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Anfield. Far from their best, the Reds -- who were on the receiving end of more farcical VAR decisions -- eked out a win and moved level with Everton at the top of the table. With Alisson returning from injury, the Champions lined up in a 4231 shape with the regular front three plus Jota. The Reds showed their intent …
Klopp praises Fabinho and Joe Gomez central defensive partnership after win at Ajax

Klopp praises Fabinho and Joe Gomez central defensive partnership after win at Ajax

Liverpool got their Champions League campaign off to a great start thanks to a hard-fought 1-0 win away to Ajax with Fabinho and Joe Gomez forming a solid partnership in central defence. Fabinho had a particularly good game at centre-half while Joe Gomez also showed a marked improvement in his level of performance. This could be the regular defensive pairing Jürgen Klopp opts for now with Virgil van Dijk gone for the rest of the season. Nicolás Tagliafico's own-goal in …
