How Would Xabi Alonso Fit Into This Liverpool Team

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years… It’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Currently the Reds possess a wide choice of midfield options with multiple players all capable of performing in specific roles – in terms of depth this is the strongest that the …

"It has been a progression" - Reds captain discusses team's never-say-die attitude

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson says the team's "mentality" and "resilience" has been "massive" in the team's recent successes. Since Jürgen Klopp's arrival at Anfield, The Reds have earned a reputation as mentality monsters - a team that simply never stops believing, never gives up. Late goals and come-from-behind wins were semi-regular occurrences in the last couple of seasons. Such belief helped the team to a Champions League title in Madrid last June, followed by a record-breaking Premier League campaign in …
Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

It was a night that not many Liverpool fans will want to think about for too much longer. It was a humbling and rare defeat at the hands of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid that perhaps prematurely ended the Red's defence of their much adored European Cup. While the performance in the first leg in Spain left a lot to be desired in terms of pace and attacking threat, Klopp's men certainly dialled this up to 11 at Anfield and almost …
Henderson speaks candidly after Liverpool exit Champions League at Anfield

Henderson speaks candidly after Liverpool exit Champions League at Anfield

Liverpool's defence of their Champions League crown came to an end last night at Anfield. Jordan Henderson described the bitter disappointment he and his teammates were feeling after a great performance on the night from The Reds. A Gini Wijnaldum header before half-time gave Liverpool the lead on the night and levelled the tie on aggregate. Extra-time was needed then and Roberto Firmino popped up to put Jürgen Klopp's side in front after 94 minutes. Then, two strikes from Atlético …
Liverpool 2-3 Atletico Madrid: Player ratings as Reds fall in Europe

Liverpool 2-3 Atletico Madrid: Player ratings as Reds fall in Europe

It has taken until Jurgen Klopp's fourth European campaign, but Liverpool have finally been beaten in a two-legged tie. Roberto Firmino looked to have completed an arduous comeback when he struck in the early stages of extra time, but Adrian proceeded to hand the visitors a vital away goal, and the dejected Reds would ship two more to fall to defeat on the night and surrender their title. Let's take a look at how the players rated. Adrian - 1/10 …
Luckless Liverpool Lament Lacklustre Keeping

Luckless Liverpool Lament Lacklustre Keeping

Champions Liverpool bowed out of the Champions after a 3-2 after extra defeat to Atletico Madrid at Anfield. Georginio Wijnaldum's goal in normal time saw the Reds win 1-0 in normal time but, despite Firmino's goal doubling their lead in extra time, two howlers from stand in keeper Adrian allowed replacements Marcos Llorente(2) and Alvaro Morata score to send the blessed Spaniards through, who had their goalkeeper Jan Oblak to thank. A rip roaring start from the Reds was considered …
Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano heralded the end of Liverpool’s phenomenal winning streak. The performance itself was more concerning than the defeat though, with Liverpool merely creating eight chances (four of which were shots from outside of the box), one Big Chance, but not managing to get a single one of those on target. Liverpool’s 0.6 xG was one of the lowest generated in recent memory. The Atletico Madrid defensive shape was immovable and robust but rarely …
Two players to return to squad for Atlético Madrid clash on Wednesday night

Two players to return to squad for Atlético Madrid clash on Wednesday night

Liverpool should have Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson both back in contention for a starting place against Atlético Madrid on Wednesday night, according to Jürgen Klopp. The Reds were without both Henderson and Robertson for Saturday's 2-1 Premier League win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Robertson was not risked after picking up a slight injury in training while Henderson was still recovering from the thigh problem he suffered in mid-February. Liverpool are 1-0 down from the first leg in Spain so …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Four wins away from Premier League glory, two points dropped all season and various records on the verge of being broken - Liverpool supporters couldn't possibly find anything to argue about, right? Oh, we can. There is something ingrained in football fans that means we can never be completely happy, always having to pick holes in something. At Liverpool, the current 'issue' is Naby Keita, who has taken on the mantle from Jordan Henderson as the most divisive midfielder at …
