Will Liverpool Repeat Relegation Signing Trick With Sander Berge

Will Liverpool Repeat Relegation Signing Trick With Sander Berge

If you analyze Liverpool's transfer business over the last few years, one thing sticks out: they are not shy of signing players from relegated clubs. Georginio Wijnaldum, a key cog in the club's recent successes, arrived from relegated Newcastle United in the summer of 2016. Likewise, Andy Robertson -- arguably the world's finest left-back -- joined Liverpool from the demoted Hull City in the summer window of 2017. To complete the hattrick, Xherdan Shaqiri swapped Championship bound Stoke for Anfield …
Set Piece Toothlessness Hindering Liverpool After Defensive Injury Nightmare

Set Piece Toothlessness Hindering Liverpool After Defensive Injury Nightmare

Liverpool's defensive injury crisis has hindered them in so many ways this season. Losing Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip has obviously hamstrung the defending champions in defence, not that you would necessarily know it from the goals conceded column. The break glass in case of emergency defenders -- Fabinho and Jordan Henderson -- have coped admirably with their new tasks and Liverpool, on the whole, have been solid at the back. The 7-2 evisceration at Villa Park, …
Ozan Kabak: More Joel Matip than Dejan Lovren

Ozan Kabak: More Joel Matip than Dejan Lovren

Ozan Kabak shares a number of similarities with Dejan Lovren. He also has traits that are comparable to Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk. It’s be expected though, given Liverpool have a clear profile when it comes to defenders.  I realise it is difficult to do, but if you look past Lovren’s erratic moments, his profile was perfect for Liverpool. He was physically dominant, both on the ground and in the air, he could pick a pass and he was …
Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

After days of nothingness mainly made up of endless scrolling through Liverpool Twitter (presumably), Michael Edwards was evidently moved enough by fans’ pleas to leap into action with deadline day looming. With fears the team’s season was slipping further away with every new injury at the back and its knock-on effects through the rest of the team, Liverpool have signed Preston North End defender Ben Davies as part of their attempts to fill their once-gaping void at the centre-back position.  …
Time and Money: Reminder from Michael Edwards

Time and Money: Reminder from Michael Edwards

Benjamin Franklin said time is money in 1748. In 2021, there’s no-one more acutely aware than FSG and crucially Michael Edwards. The transfer window opened on 1st January, but it’s been clear for some time of Liverpool’s needs in defence. However, the exact needs only became abundantly clear to everyone late last night. In a race against time and with funds clearly tight, it became clear that all the days business had been done efficiently. To start at the beginning …

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp gave a general injury update ahead of his side's trip to play Spurs in London on Thursday night.

Reds duo could be losing race to be fit for United clash on Sunday

The Liverpool duo of Joël Matip and Naby Keïta may miss out on Sunday's top-of-the-table Premier League clash with Manchester United. Jürgen Klopp's defensive injury woes look set to continue with Matip missing since going off after an hour of Liverpool's 1-1 draw with West Brom in late December. The Reds were hoping to have the 29-year-old centre-half back to partner Fabinho at the heart of the back four on Sunday. However, with Matip nowhere to be seen during Liverpool's …

Klopp on Matip and Keïta injuries following draw with West Brom

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp gave a brief injury update on both Joël Matip and Naby Keïta following The Reds' draw with West Brom on Sunday. It was reported before the game that Keïta was unavailable for selection so Klopp shed some light on that subject as well as admitting the Matip news will be known tomorrow or Tuesday at the earliest. Speaking about the injuries about his post-match press conference, Klopp said about Matip:
“Joel told me he felt something …
Klopp's Joël Matip injury update following draw at Fulham

Klopp's Joël Matip injury update following draw at Fulham

Liverpool's Joël Matip could be fit to face Spurs on Wednesday night according to Jürgen Klopp. Matip was replaced by Takumi Minamino at half-time in The Reds' 1-1 draw in London against Fulham. That left Liverpool with Jordan Henderson and Fabinho pairing up in central defence as Klopp's injury woes continued. Mohamed Salah scored a late equaliser from the spot for Liverpool, cancelling out Bobby Cordova-Reid's impressive first-half strike for Fulham. Alarm bells were raised for Reds fans everywhere when …
