Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report The first half was a game of frustration for both sides, with neither giving much away through the opening period. Both Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk could have scored from tremendous Trent deliveries, and Alisson was alert enough to parry away a good cross come shot from Hakan Çalhanoğlu. These great teams appeared intent on cancelling each other out, which of course suited the reds far more. The second half …
What should Liverpool do with Joe Gomez?

What should Liverpool do with Joe Gomez?

Joe Gomez made his first start in the Premier League for 468 days in Liverpool’s 3-1 win over Norwich City. He was used as a right-back with Trent Alexander-Arnold being given a rare day off.  Some thought he did well, others really did not like him in the full-back role. I think how you viewed this outing was tied to the expectations you had heading into the match. He was not ever going to replicate what Alexander-Arnold does for the …

Key Stats as majestic Liverpool cruise past Leeds United

Liverpool were in imperious form as they crushed Leeds United under their collective boot, recording their biggest win of the season courtesy of goals from Salah (2), Matip, Mane (2) and Van Dijk. But what were the Key Stats as the Reds got to within touching distance of Manchester City? First Half Shutout Whilst the headlines might go to the three goals Liverpool scored in the first half, perhaps the bigger sign of their dominance was that they didn't concede …

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …

Reds Get Stuck Into Second Day of Training in Austria

Reds Get Stuck Into Second Day of Training in Austria

Liverpool are settling into their Austrian training camp as they stepped it up a gear on their second day in the Salzburg region.

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 …
