Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

Dejan Lovren: Sell or Keep?

The 29-year-old Croatian defender has slipped down the pecking order at the club over the past season. Long term injury and the performances of Joe Gomez and more recently Joel Matip have meant Lovren currently occupies the space of fourth choice centre back With the summer transfer window almost upon us rumours are beginning to swirl about the players future at the club. AC Milan are reported to be interested in Lovren who is thought to be available for a  …
Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

Gomez: The Reason LFC Don't Need a Superstar Centre-Back

I found myself watching England in the UEFA Nations League third-place playoff last weekend - a pretty sad state of affairs. When your Sunday looks empty on the social front and no other 'proper' football is on, it's (just about) better than nothing, though. The standout figure as the Three Lions edged out Xherdan Shaqiri's Switzerland was Trent Alexander-Arnold, who put together a masterful performance highlighting why he is one of the world's most exciting full-backs. It was no surprise …
Joe Gomez feels Reds are a stronger proposition ahead of this year's Champions League final

Joe Gomez feels Reds are a stronger proposition ahead of this year's Champions League final

Liverpool's young defender Joe Gomez believes The Reds are better placed for Champions League success this season than they were ahead of their meeting with Real Madrid in Kiev a year ago. Gomez, who only turns 22 next week, missed out on the squad for the final last season after undergoing ankle surgery. This time around, the former Charlton Athletic player is just returning from another serious injury, having fractured his lower leg at Burnley in early December. However, positivity …
Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Muchas Gracias - How Liverpool upset the population of Barcelona

Three days after Liverpool emphatically turned around a three-goal deficit to reach the Champions League final, I arrived in Barcelona for a short trip still ecstatic from the result. What I learned just moments after getting off the plane was that this result hasn’t just hurt Messi and the rest of the team it’s hurt a whole city. Getting into a taxi outside the airport the driver immediately noticed my Liverpool jersey before venting his frustrations in a Spanish slur. …

Player Ratings as Reds have easy night in demolishing Huddersfield

After the pain and agony of recent victories, where Liverpool had to wait for the goals, it was nice to have a night like that. This season has been a running demonstration of a Huddersfield squad just not good enough to cut it in the Premier League, and they were put to the sword at Anfield, as the Reds toyed with them for a 5-0 win. They were off, up and running in 16 seconds, no less, when Naby Keita …
Joël Matip - Making His Case To Be First Choice Again

Joël Matip - Making His Case To Be First Choice Again

It’s been a pretty impressive few months for Joël Matip. Since his return to the team against Crystal Palace, Matip has played every minute of the last 13 Premier League games, during which Liverpool have conceded just 10 goals, keeping six clean sheets, and winning nine. Over the course of the season, Matip has actually played 16 league games alongside Van Dijk, with the Reds conceding just 11 goals in those games, winning 12 and drawing four. In the Champions …
Player Ratings as scratchy Reds win 4-1 to make Champions League semi

Player Ratings as scratchy Reds win 4-1 to make Champions League semi

How did that end 4-1? Well, you could argue Liverpool outclassed Porto in both penalty areas, and thoroughly deserved that result. And you'd be able to present a justifiable argument. But for large parts of that game, it just didn't look like Liverpool were going to win 4-1. Sadio Mané put the Reds on their way with a VAR-overturned goal, after the referee had initially disallowed it for offside. Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk put the gloss …

Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

Liverpool’s Long Goodbyes

One of these days summer will actually come. It may feel like we’ll be forever chasing City, one point behind, in a perpetual spring where the temperature never climbs above frigid. But the calendar is in-fact progressing. We know that we’re not stuck in a time-warp because Joe Gomez and Oxlade Chamberlain are apparently ready for action. Some morning soon you’ll actually look out the window and see the sun and it will be time to consider Liverpool’s summer signings, …
Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

When you look at Liverpool’s success so far this season, one of the key reasons that the team has played consistently well is the lack of injuries to key players. Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold aside, of Liverpool’s main starting XI (or starting X plus one if we’re being fair), nobody has picked up anything more than a minor niggle this season. And some would say that in that respect, Liverpool have been very lucky. Going through the team, there …
