Liverpool must sign a Gini Wijnaldum replacement

Liverpool must sign a Gini Wijnaldum replacement

So here we are, in a post-Gini Wijnaldum Liverpool world. The Dutchman was a wonderful servant for the Reds during five hugely successful seasons and will forever go down as a modern-day legend at Anfield. Much like Ronnie Whelan in the 1980s, he rarely made the headlines - both had a penchant for scoring big goals, though - but he was vital to everything Liverpool did. He knitted the midfield together beautifully, did endless unsung off-the-ball work and was a …
Why Liverpool shouldn't sign Rodrigo De Paul

Why Liverpool shouldn't sign Rodrigo De Paul

Liverpool’s leading scorer from midfield this season is Gini Wijnaldum and he’s found the back of the net just twice in the Premier League.  The lack of goals from those in the middle third is the primary reason so many fans want the Reds to add an attacking midfielder to their ranks this summer. Houssem Aouar has been perpetually linked with a move to Anfield, though multiple reports have also named him as a target for half of Europe.  Despite …
Liverpool's midfield vs Chelsea: A selection headache at long last

Liverpool's midfield vs Chelsea: A selection headache at long last

There was much to admire about Liverpool's 2-0 victory over Sheffield United, as the Reds made a welcome return to winning ways. Adrian, Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak largely did well against a physical Blades attack, while Trent Alexander-Arnold looked somewhere close to his best again. Gini Wijnaldum and Thiago purred in midfield, the front-three looked more vibrant as a unit, and of course, Curtis Jones was the star of the show. One of the most heartwarming aspects was the …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-1 West Bromwich Albion

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-1 West Bromwich Albion

Liverpool's seven-goal clinic in finishing against Crystal Palace was a display not of Liverpool playing at their best, but rather the Reds taking their chances. Against newly appointed West Bromwich Albion manager Sam Allardyce's team, it was clear Liverpool would need to do the same. As expected, Liverpool lined up in a 4-3-3. Salah, Mané and Firmino were supported by Jones, Wijnaldum and Henderson, with a back five of Alisson, Robertson, Fabinho, Matip and Alexander-Arnold behind them. Over the first …
Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Limp Liverpool Crash Out Of League Cup After Shootout Agony

Liverpool exited the League Cup at the fifth round stage after a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat to Arsenal at Anfield. A drab and forgetful 90 minutes ended scoreless and the Gunners -- through Joe Willock -- won the shootout after Divock Origi and Harry Wilson missed their spot-kicks. Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of changes from the Reds' Premier League victory over the same opponents on Monday night, but Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk -- surprisingly -- …
Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

Curtis Jones primed for starring role at Liverpool in 2020/21

It is a rare thing to see a young Scouser make the grade at Liverpool, backing up their early promise and becoming a hero to millions around the world. Trent Alexander-Arnold is the most recent homegrown talent to become a star at Anfield, but it has been slim pickings for many years. For every Alexander-Arnold, there are many who aren't good enough, whether it be Jon Flanagan, Jay Spearing or Jordan Rossiter, not to mention the endless individuals who aren't …
Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones has had quite the season. It started all the way back in September, with his second game in a Liverpool shirt against MK Dons, where he impressed. And he kept impressing, scoring the winning penalty against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, making his Premier League debut in December, scoring THAT goal against Everton in January, becoming the club’s youngest ever captain against Shrewsbury, signing a new deal earlier this month, scoring his first Premier League goal a day …
Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Does Curtis Jones’ rise signal the end for Harry Wilson’s Liverpool career?

Among his growing list of plaudits, 19-year-old Curtis Jones can now add captaining his boyhood Liverpool into the fifth round of the FA Cup after this week's triumph over Shrewsbury. After long being touted as one of the many academy graduates who looks more than capable of playing a major role in the first team, Jones is now really starting to add fuel to that fire. Jones has impressed in each of his three showings in the FA Cup this …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
