Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Liverpool fell to a 2-0 defeat to Atalanta at Anfield in the Champions League. Goals from Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens sealed a deserved win for the Italians in a drab affair, marshalled by a referee, Carlos del Cerro from Spain, who was lax when it came to punishing overly physical play. The Reds, meanwhile, who made a host for changes to their team from the comfortable victory over Leicester City were abject throughout. All the personnel alterations lead to …
Priceless Matip faces career-defining period at Liverpool

Priceless Matip faces career-defining period at Liverpool

When it rains, it pours. Or in Liverpool's case, when it rains, a monsoon arrives. The Reds find themselves in one of the most bleak, unfortunate injury situations in their recent history, following an awful period in the fitness department. When Virgil van Dijk was ruled out for the season with cruciate ligament damage it felt bad enough, but in the weeks since, things have got even worse for Jurgen Klopp. Having to make do without the likes of Thiago, …
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 …
Fabinho may well be first-choice centre-back in Van Dijk's absence

Fabinho may well be first-choice centre-back in Van Dijk's absence

It's strange to think, but Liverpool's second-best centre-back, after Virgil van Dijk, may well be Fabinho. This isn't an article having a go at a clearly excellent, but still young and developing Joe Gomez. I'm a huge fan of Gomez as a defender. Still only 23, the former Charlton Athletic player is one of England's best. Joël Matip is also a very underrated centre-half. The only issue with 29-year-old Matip is keeping him fit for a full season or even …
Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Where do you even start with that one? Quite simply the single worst refereeing performance in the entire VAR era. Liverpool robbed of 3 points at Goodison Park after a truly abhorrent display from the officials. Not only that, but the vile behaviour of the Everton players throughout the game looks to have inflicted serious injuries on two of best players, Virgil van Dijk and Thiago. However, despite absolutely everything going in the Blues’ favour and with their best team in decades, our unbeaten …
Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings as VAR drama denies Reds a derby win

Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings as VAR drama denies Reds a derby win

Liverpool drew 2-2 with Everton at Goodison Park, after a dramatic final few minutes, which saw Jordan Henderson's would-be winner cancelled out by VAR for offside. Sadio Mane gave the Reds an early lead, which was soon pegged back by Michael Keane. Mo Salah put the Reds back in front in the second half, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin brought Everton back level for a second time. Mané set up Henderson for what would have been the winner, but Liverpool were denied …
Reds step up training regime as some senior players return ahead of Everton clash

Reds step up training regime as some senior players return ahead of Everton clash

Liverpool continued their preparations for their trip to top-of-the-table Everton in the early game this coming Saturday. Jürgen Klopp and his coaching staff were able to work closely with several senior members of the first-team squad who are not away on international duty. Some good news is that Thiago Alcântara, Joël Matip and Sadio Mané all returned to training after being unavailable for the last few weeks (Thiago and Mané had COVID-19 while Matip was injured). Mohamed Salah and veteran …
Injury update on Liverpool's duo of centre-backs

Injury update on Liverpool's duo of centre-backs

Jürgen Klopp gave a brief injury update regarding Joe Gomez and Joël Matip after Liverpool's win at Chelsea. The Reds won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in a game where Fabinho had to step in as centre-half to play alongside Virgil van Dijk. Thankfully, Fabinho could be relied on as per usual, putting in a man-of-the-match performance for Klopp's side. Gomez started Liverpool's first Premier League game of the season against Leeds but was missing on Sunday after reportedly …
Klopp gives injury update on Reds duo

Klopp gives injury update on Reds duo

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp gave an injury update regarding both Jordan Henderson and Joël Matip following The Reds' penalty-shootout defeat to Arsenal in Saturday's Community Shield. Klopp's men drew 1-1 with Arsenal after 90 minutes at Wembley. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave The Gunners a first-half lead with a fantastic finish from the edge of the box. Liverpool substitute Takumi Minamino scored his first goal for The Reds to equalise in the 73rd minute of the game. Arsenal then went on to …
Why Liverpool Must Resist Matip Offers

Why Liverpool Must Resist Matip Offers

Rumours emanating from Cameroon suggest that Paris Saint Germain would be interested in signing Liverpool centre half Joel Matip. According to kick442, the Parisians coach, Thomas Tuchel, and their sporting director, Leonardo, would like Matip, 28, to replace the outgoing Thiago Silva who will leave the club on a free transfer this summer. However, despite injury meaning the former Cameroon international only clocked up 13 appearances last season, the Reds should rebuff all approaches for their number 32, even if -- as …
