Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

"This was a marvellous tactical battle, but for Nuno Espirito Santo, despite his best efforts, couldn’t quite deliver a surprise in morphing into Nuno Espirito Santa(!!!), but with Liverpool, rather unexpectedly, now four points clear of Manchester City, it seems Christmas may just have come early…" - Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown, 23/12/2018
It's remarkable how much, and at the same time, how little has changed in just over a year. Indeed, given Wolves' comeback against Manchester …

Leicester City 0-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Leicester City 0-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a performance. We go away to the team sitting in second place in the league and make them look like a bunch of part-timers. A truly scintillating display from start to finish and, in truth, 4-0 flattered Leicester. This was always going to be one of the harder games on the schedule, but the Reds dealt with it superbly. In goal, Alisson had absolutely nothing to do. Not one shot on target for the Foxes, nor any dangerous deliveries …
Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

There can be no doubt now that the Reds are the best side in the world and that the Premier League title …

What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

In the latest in our 'What If?' series, Jordan Henderson's damaging red card against Manchester City is bemoaned by Henry Jackson. Anyone who reads my work or has to suffer through my endless tweets will know that I am a big admirer of Henderson. A player who has been almost ridiculously maligned by some down the years, he has now forged quite a career at Liverpool, captaining the Reds to Champions League glory. Next May, he will hopefully become Liverpool's …

Tactical analysis: Henderson's new role in absence of Fabinho

Tactical analysis: Henderson's new role in absence of Fabinho

By Reece Chambers When Liverpool signed Fabinho from AS Monaco in July 2018 for an estimated £40million, there was a degree of uncertainty as to what he would bring to Jurgen Klopp’s team.  He had previously played at right-back and centre midfield for Monaco, and did so to great avail, as he helped his side reach the UEFA Champions League semi-final. But with a scarce international career with Brazil, many fans were left to speculate what he would provide at …
