Karius or Adrian - Who's The Better Back-Up?

Although we're still eagerly awaiting the Premier League's return so that we can finally see Liverpool lift the trophy, there's still plenty to talk about. Rumours as to whether Timo Werner will join from RB Leipzig refuse to go away. The lads, already donning Liverpool red, are back in training and the league looks to be creeping closer to kicking off again. However, one thing that has come to fore recently is perhaps something that we've all been shying away …

Alisson: Delivering Big Moments In Liverpool's Title Bid

Sunday's 2-0 win at Cardiff was enough to push Liverpool to 88 points thus far, their highest points tally of the Premier League era with three games still to play. Crucially, it also means the pressure remains firmly on Manchester City, with the coming week seeing them travel to Old Trafford before a potentially tricky away trip to Burnley.

Liverpool's Defence Is More Than VVD and Alisson

It’s true that Virgil Van Dijk is the best centre-back in the league. It’s true that his impact on this Liverpool team has been absolutely tremendous, and it’s true that his signing is one of the best that Liverpool have made in years.

Destiny Defying Alisson Writes His Own Script

You could write the script. It really was that predictable. Liverpool had been banging on the door all night, creating a good chance after good chance against a Napoli side that was there for the taking. Even as the time ticked away and it became abundantly clear that Liverpool’s only chance of going through on the night was to win 1-0, as the time to score two more goals had all but run out, still the Reds carved open Napoli, …

Simon Mignolet was the man in goal, was …
Is Van Dijk's defence capable of underpinning a title challenge?

Is Van Dijk's defence capable of underpinning a title challenge?

Liverpool’s £75m capture of Virgil van Dijk made him the most expensive defender in the world. Of course, eyebrows were raised left, right and centre given the size of such an investment; a good defender for Southampton but one worthy of such an outlay? Outsiders weren’t particularly convinced. Fast forward to the present and the critics have gone eerily quiet as it appears one man can indeed fix a defence. A third successive clean sheet of the season in the …
