Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it.

The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …

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 …

The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

Marko Grujic's time at Liverpool may be about to come to an end. AC Milan look poised to bid for the midfielder, and it is likely that the Reds will accept. However, the latest reports indicate that Grujic may have the opportunity to prove himself, should these moves not materialise. The factors that dictate whether he is able to contribute are his performances during his loan spells at Hertha Berlin, his appearances for Liverpool and what he can provide that …
