Liverpool retained top spot in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Anfield in Saturday's 12:30 kick off. A brace of goals from Sadio Mané as well as a Mohamed Salah strike were enough to seal the win for Jurgen Klopp's men, despite falling behind to an early Jetro Willems goal from the visitor's. The hosts made two additions from their 3-0 win away to Burnley three weeks ago, with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain coming in for …
Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Liverpool’s win over Arsenal last weekend included several star performers in Jurgen Klopp’s side. Mo Salah was back to his very best as he scored two goals – one of which will be a contender for Goal of the Month, even if Sky Sports’ commentary failed to provide suitable audio commentary to the goal. Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho all performed at the high standards we have come to expect over the last two seasons. Van Dijk was …
Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

Joel Matip: The best partner for Virgil Van Dijk

We're four years into Joel Matip's Liverpool career and only now are we getting to see him finally fulfil his potential. He arrived during the summer of 2016 and immediately had fans on his side purely by not being Martin Skrtel. For years prior, the Slovakian had been one of the mainstays in a leaky backline for the Reds. Matip was not just seen as an upgrade but as a better fit in general. His first thought wasn't to retreat …
Liverpool Press Makes Spanish Whine

Liverpool Press Makes Spanish Whine

Liverpool retained top spot with a dominant 3-1 victory over Arsenal at Anfield last Saturday. Goals from Joel Matip and a Mohamed Salah brace were enough to wrap up the three points for the Reds, despite Lucas Torreira pulling a goal back for the Gunners in the 83rd minute. A prominent feature of the victory was the efficient, choreographed and intense pressing of Jurgen Klopp's team. One player, in particular, who felt the full brunt of the European Champions claustrophobia-inducing …
Rampant Reds Run Over Arsenal

Rampant Reds Run Over Arsenal

A clash between the Premier League’s remaining unbeaten teams turned into a one-sided affair with Liverpool taking all the spoils in comfortable fashion. From the onset, Arsenal clearly set out to avoid the recent beatings they have suffered at Anfield by sitting back on defence. They were happy to soak up pressure without giving Liverpool’s leading lights much room to operate or cause problems. This led to several crosses sent in from the flanks, with Andrew Robertson sliding in several …

Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Selling Dejan Lovren - another gamble

Reports in the media today strongly suggest that Dejan Lovren is headed to Italy on a permanent deal. He did not travel with the team to Istanbul, so it's quite possible the rumours are based on reality than your regular summer click-bait. The Croat found himself down the pecking order after representing his country in the World Cup final last summer. After undoubtedly the highlight of his career at that point, Lovren was plagued by injuries for most of last …
Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

Why Liverpool are right to sell Dejan Lovren

After five years of being one of the most divisive players in Liverpool's history, the end appears to be nigh for Dejan Lovren at Anfield. If (trustworthy) rumours are to be believed,  the 30-year-old is on the verge of completing a move to Roma, having accepted that being fourth choice centre-back is going to be no barrel of laughs. The first thing to say is that Lovren deserves credit for actually wanting to go out and prove himself elsewhere, rather …
Joe Gomez says Liverpool are hungry for Super Cup glory

Joe Gomez says Liverpool are hungry for Super Cup glory

Liverpool's Joe Gomez says the team is hungry for Super Cup success this Wednesday in Istanbul as Reds prepare to face Chelsea. Jurgen Klopp's men lost out on the Community Shield to Manchester City after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat following an entertaining 1-1 draw at Wembley earlier this month. Now, Liverpool have another chance of early-season silverware when they meet Frank Lampard's new-look Chelsea side at Vodafone Park in Turkey. Gomez, speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, feels the Community Shield loss …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
