Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Leadership comes in many forms. When you mention the word in the context of Liverpool, several names come to mind. Jordan Henderson, James Milner, and Virgil van Dijk -- three of the four members of the first team's leadership group, along with Georginio Wijnaldum -- are all associated with being leaders, whether that's through their vocal presence or by virtue of their respect-commanding aura. A name you seldom hear mentioned when it comes to leaders in the Reds' squad is …
Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

So apparently football really does determine your mood. After an awful run of results for Liverpool, they roared back on Tuesday night, making a formidable RB Leipzig side look as average as a mid-table Premier League side. That weight was instantly lifted, whether it be for Jurgen Klopp, his players or the supporters, as the Reds produced a performance that suggests they are back. Alisson responded well after a shocking couple of games; Trent Alexander-Arnold was influential; Ozan Kabak and …

Goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah gave the nominal away team the victory with a performance of control and defensive solidity.

Henderson says Reds must get City defeat out of their system before facing Leicester

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes his squad must use the coming week to get the Manchester City defeat out of their system. Jürgen Klopp's Reds lost 4-1 to Manchester City on Sunday, making it three consecutive Anfield defeats, after going almost four years without losing a home game in the league before that. Henderson insists that the team must bounce back with a positive performance away to Leicester next Saturday. Speaking to Sky Sports after the City defeat, Henderson said: …
The end of the line for Joel Matip?

The end of the line for Joel Matip?

Since Jurgen Klopp stepped in as Liverpool boss the sparkle that often surrounded deadline day has disappeared, and for the main part this is a good thing. This season has been one like no other, the squad has been hugely depleted in every position. Particularly at centre back where Fabinho and Jordan Henderson have been forced to deputise on occasion due to the amount of injuries the Reds have suffered. This caused a crazy deadline day to ensue with multiple …
Tactical Breakdown: West Ham 1-3 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: West Ham 1-3 Liverpool

Liverpool travelled to the London Stadium buoyed by a brilliant performance against Spurs. However, David Moyes' West Ham side have proven this season they can vie with the best, and hope to challenge for European qualification at the end of the season. West Ham lined up in a 4-2-3-1 shape. Michail Antonio led the line, supported primarily by Said Benrahma who would help create a front two when out of possession. Jarrod Bowen also contributed offensively, moving up in the …

Jordan Henderson clipped a gorgeous …
West Ham 1-3 Liverpool: Observations as majestic second half secures vital win

West Ham 1-3 Liverpool: Observations as majestic second half secures vital win

With Roberto Firmino rested and Sadio Mane the latest addition to the injury list, it looked as if Liverpool were going to need to win ugly at the London Stadium. A drab first-half seemed to confirm those pre-match convictions. But in the end, the win wasn't ugly; it was beautiful. Either side of a contender for Liverpool's goal of the season, Mohamed Salah curled home unerringly and Georginio Wijnaldum finished off an incisive one-touch move. Craig Dawson would deny the …

Player Ratings for Liverpool 3-1 West Ham

January may have been a rough month to start for Liverpool, but a couple matches in the capital at the end of the month have firmly put the Reds back on track and in title contention again. Alisson – 7 The handsome Brazilian wasn’t asked to do much today with Antonio surprisingly ineffective and Soucek subdued, but he came off his line well several times to snuff out danger and make sure the Hammers didn’t find any joy in the …
Liverpool Light Up London Again In West Ham Win
