Sadio Mané - Still Liverpool's Main Man(é)?

Sadio Mané - Still Liverpool's Main Man(é)?

Sadio Mané has been an absolutely integral player to Liverpool since his move to the club two summers ago. Across two seasons, Mané has started 54 games for the club in the Premier League, scoring 23 goals and notching 12 assists, not to mention his double-digit Champions League season for the Reds as they surged to the Champions League final. But I wanted to take a look at just how important Sadio Mané is to this Liverpool side. In many …
6 Players Who Face A Crucial Summer For Liverpool

6 Players Who Face A Crucial Summer For Liverpool

While every football fan will be engrossed by the World Cup for the next few weeks, those who weren't chosen for their respective countries to feature in Russia will already be putting in the groundwork ahead of a pivotal summer at Liverpool. With two new signings already changing the look of Jürgen Klopp's midfield, further summer recruits could put a number of players in a precarious position regarding their role at the club. Heading into the pre-season campaign without the …
Liverpool v West Ham Preview: Key Battles

Liverpool v West Ham Preview: Key Battles

After a gap of ten days to bask in the glory of a perfect Champions League in Porto, Liverpool are back in action in the Premier League, welcoming West Ham United to Anfield on Saturday. The Reds won the reverse fixture 4-1 at the London Stadium with a Mo Salah brace either side of goals from Joel Matip and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain giving the Reds three points.

Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Klopp’s Miracle: Turning Water into Wine, & Making Money at the Same Time

Jurgen Klopp has improved Liverpool all over the pitch, quite literally, since arriving in October 2015. But unlike some of his managerial rivals, he’s done so without spending money in the transfer market. ‘Net Spend’ is a much scoffed at phrase in modern football, but to transform Liverpool into the gegenpressing, offensive monster we often see now, from the weary, possession-obsessed ‘animal’ it was at the end of Brendan Rodgers’ reign – while making £34m – is nothing short of …
Why the 3-4-2-1 makes the most sense for Klopp's Post-Coutinho Liverpool

Why the 3-4-2-1 makes the most sense for Klopp's Post-Coutinho Liverpool

Like Alonso, Torres, Mascherano, Sterling and Suarez before him, Philippe Coutinho has been lured away by one of the bigger fish in world football. As a result, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are left with the task maintaining what is widely considered to be an upward trajectory without their most influential player. It is fortunate, at least, that the departure of the Brazilian comes just as Adam Lallana looks ready to rejoin the midfield - Liverpool's number 20 is one of …
Who should partner Van Dijk?

Who should partner Van Dijk?

With the record £75 million signing of Dutch international defender Virgil Van Dijk, Liverpool have taken major steps towards addressing the defensive frailties that have plagued Jurgen Klopp’s side throughout his tenure. Whilst having a world record defender is great, Liverpool can’t expect Van Dijk to solve the team’s defensive problems alone. Almost every team in history that has had a solid defensive record has built their foundations upon a centre back pairing that remains almost ever-present throughout the season. …
Observations as Liverpool are whacked at Wembley

Observations as Liverpool are whacked at Wembley

I'm going to level with you all, in my good honest way. Racing back from Goodison (at least we can laugh at Everton) to watch this one, with the rain lashing down on my phone screen until I got in for the last 30 minutes on a telly, my analysis of this drubbing may not be as detailed as on another occasion. However, when you lose 4-1 to a team that you're meant to be 'at least as good as', …

Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't. United have drawn one game in the season so far, a 2-2 away draw at Stoke, and have won all their other games. Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

A Look At Jurgen Klopp's Use Of Rotation This Season

The success of finishing inside the top 4 comes with the prestige of playing in Europe’s top competition -  The Champions League – being in the competition means you are competing against the best and means better players have more of a chance of joining because you are partaking. The cons of being in the Champions League are the amount of extra games you must play in a season, many credit the lack of European competition as to why Chelsea …
Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool’s run of form makes for miserable reading as of late, with two losses and two draws in their last four fixtures. Jurgen Klopp will have hoped for an easy fixture to get back on track with the team’s current form being so poor, but Leicester away is far from that. Having already played them once this week, albeit with a weakened side, Liverpool have to once again travel to the King Power to hopefully return with a better result …
