Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

Liverpool now capable of winning dirty

The Champions League final between Liverpool and Spurs was probably as bad a deciding game as the competition has seen for years. In terms of a neutral, it was a bland showing between two sides that had an array of attacking talent on show. Some pundits have put this down to the fact that both sides had a three-week break from their last league game, blaming rustiness as the reason for the lack of quality. However Jurgen Klopp will not …
Klopp's Champions League Final Midfield Dilemma

Klopp's Champions League Final Midfield Dilemma

Who else is suffering from both unrivalled levels of excitement and nerves ahead of the Champions League final? This one really does feel like a must-not-lose, doesn't it? In truth, Jurgen Klopp finds himself without too much stress ahead of the clash with Tottenham on June 1st, with a fully fit squad to choose from and legs well rested. There is no drama affecting matters away from the pitch, meaning sole focus is on securing European Cup number six and …
A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

A Lesson In Defending From Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool’s 2013/14 title challenge was defined by moments. The  moment Jordan Henderson saw red against Manchester City. The  moment Steven Gerrard lost his footing and Demba Ba emerged through on goal. The  moment Iago Aspas produced an abhorrent corner to set up a Chelsea counter. All painful, pivotal nails in the coffin for Brendan Rodger’s side. Sunday’s 2-1 win against Tottenham carried similar weight. Manchester City will know their destiny remains in their own hands, with maximum points from their …
Liverpool and the International Break: A Diary Of Nothing

Liverpool and the International Break: A Diary Of Nothing

Two weeks without a Liverpool game. Two whole weeks. It’s Day 8 and I’m really struggling. International breaks can be a necessary evil—you have to qualify for the World Cup or European Championship after all and those games have to be played at some point—but do we really have to have so many? What are we meant to do with our weekends when the other lads are off wearing someone else’s kit? I can barely countenance the idea of having …

Mo Slowing Down - Salah Can Exceed Last Season

Mo Salah scored 32 Premier League goals and 10 Champions League goals in 2017/18, the record for a 38 game Premier League season.

Roberto Firmino - How Good Is He?

Roberto Firmino - How Good Is He?

Bobby Firmino. A player with so much to offer Liverpool. Bobby is a huge component of what Jürgen Klopp is trying to build for so many reasons, and he’s having an absolutely terrific season as he starts to fulfil his potential in this team. Whilst Mo Salah has been rightfully grabbing the majority of the headlines, Bobby has been doing what Bobby does best: going about his work. And now many are starting to reckon that Liverpool’s number nine is …
Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

The nature of the conversation around Mo Salah has indeed shifted in recent weeks, culminating in a significant shift following Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford. Salah was of course, entirely unplayable on Saturday, scoring four and assisting Bobby Firmino’s goal, but that performance was only the cherry on top of what has been a truly elite season for Salah. His 28 goals make him the top scorer in the top five European leagues, with nobody contributing more than his 37 …
Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

A frantic finale saw Liverpool and Tottenham secure injury-time goals, playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. With the reverse fixture having gone so poorly for Klopp’s men earlier in the season, this was a suitable opportunity to enact some revenge on Mauricio Pochettino’s side and extend the points gap between the two. Such plans got off to the perfect start when Mohamed Salah netted his 20th goal in the Premier League inside the opening few …
Key Battles: Will it be Red redemption against Spurs?

Key Battles: Will it be Red redemption against Spurs?

In yet another season-defining match, Liverpool host Spurs on Sunday at 4:30 GMT. With only 13 games left in the 2017/18 season, The Reds now sit 2 points up on The Lilywhites. With Chelsea favoured to get a result at Watford this weekend, a loss by either side at Anfield would see the defeated club chasing from behind in the race for top four positions. Three points for Liverpool would have them aiming for United or at least 3rd, hopeful …
