Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Is it possible to love and hate a football team at the same time? It was easy to feel that way on Sunday, as Liverpool did their best to throw away valuable points at Fulham, in what would have been their most disappointing result of the season. Confidence was flowing as the Reds arrived in west London, with the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich showcasing their brilliance under Jurgen Klopp. A trip to a 19th-place struggling outfit in the spring …
Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

Liverpool vs Porto: Champions League Quarter Final Is No Formality

After emphatically dumping Nivo Kovac's Bayern Munich out of the Champions League this week, Liverpool were handed what on paper seems to be a preferable quarter-final after being drawn against Porto. The 1-3 scoreline at the Allianz Arena along with a composed and assured performance in Bavaria has led many to believe that Liverpool are in with a serious chance of replicating last year's European form and making it all the way to the final for a second consecutive season …
Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

It was only a few days ago that Liverpool fans bore witness to another one of Jürgen Klopp’s most repeated sentiments – “I don’t need to spend anything, I’ve got all that I need.”
“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever. "The best way to do it is bring together a group of players, try …

Fear in the Presence of Success

Like it or not, fear, in many forms, has been riddled throughout the supporter ranks since January. Looking at a Premier League title and a Champions League trophy hanging in the balance of the next two months, understandably so. What's needed instead, however, is an emotion that seems to be lacking in most corners of the internet at the moment. Calm. This isn’t an article about heavy statistics like expected goals or Premier League schedule analysis. Instead, a plea: let’s breathe …
Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Liverpool continued their resurgence towards the top of Europe’s elite with an incredible 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena over a Bayern Munich side that were never allowed to get going. And what for me, is potentially interesting about the victory is how low-key some of the celebration and conversation is at the moment – especially compared to say Manchester United vs PSG. Obviously, Liverpool didn’t have to come back from two goals down, given how comprehensively they shut Bayern …

Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Liverpool romped to a 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-final stages, the fourth English club to achieve such a feat. Having struggled to recreate the kind of form witnessed in Europe last season, this was a return to the best of the best, with Jurgen Klopp's side fending off another European heavyweight with relative ease. Cunning on the counter-attack and defensively solid, there were few holes to a performance that will …

Liverpool vs Bayern Second Leg Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool travel to the Allianz Arena with their Champions League hopes well and truly in the balance. It’s harder to imagine a fixture that could be harder to call, with just about every conceivable measuring stick suggesting that this is a 50/50 game. After the 0-0 draw at Anfield, Liverpool have the advantage of knowing they don’t need to win, a score draw will see them through, but equally, Bayern will have home advantage behind them, something Liverpool failed to …

Liverpool Must Take Bayern Seriously to Maintain Title Momentum

Having successfully dispatched of Burnley 4-2 at Anfield, Liverpool continue their Champions League quest against Bayern Munich on Wednesday in the decisive second leg. The tie is delicately poised at 0-0 from the first leg which could be seen as an advantage to Bayern that they avoided defeat away from home, or a positive for Liverpool that they prevented the away goal.

Lallana discusses tackle Klopp referred to as a 'fantastic counter-pressing block'

Adam Lallana explained the method behind his brilliant sliding challenge on Phil Bardsley which created the goal to put Liverpool in front on Sunday. There's nothing Jurgen Klopp loves more than effective counter-pressing in the opposition's defensive third of the pitch. Klopp referred to Lallana's challenge as a "game-changer" and a "fantastic counter-pressing block". Lallana pounced on some indecision between Burnley's Jeff Hendrick and Phil Bardsley to block the clearance, deflecting the ball into Mohamed Salah's path in the box. …

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …
