Naby Keita: The key to a good performance against Burnley

Naby Keita: The key to a good performance against Burnley

Let's cast our minds back to a cold, dark Wednesday night at Turf Moor in December. Jürgen Klopp took his Liverpool team to take on Sean Dyche's Burnley and selected Naby Keita in central midfield for the second consecutive match after an injury lay-off had seen him reduced to watching his team mates from the side-lines. Keita had enjoyed a solid start to the season for the Reds, but injuries disrupted things for him, but he came in against Burnley …

Klopp's Liverpool Can Look Beyond May For Success

Klopp's Liverpool Can Look Beyond May For Success

The panic has started to set in. The nerves of a proper title race are jangling. Liverpool had a four-point lead at the top of the table, which could have been extended to seven, but instead, four draws in six games see it now as a deficit by a single point, leaving the title race on a knife-edge with nice games to go. Now the reactions have been somewhere between outright panic – people already saying the title is lost …
The Reds' possible starting eleven against Everton this Sunday

The Reds' possible starting eleven against Everton this Sunday

Is this how Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp will line The Reds up for the Merseyside derby at Everton this weekend? Liverpool and Everton played out an extremely tight and tense game at Anfield back in early-December. A 96th-minute winner from super-sub Divock Origi gave Liverpool a priceless 1-0 victory and started Klopp's men on an eight-game winning streak in all competitions. 2019 has proved a tougher proposition so far for Liverpool, however. Yet, on Wednesday night, Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah and …

Balance the Key to Fixing Liverpool's 4-3-3

Balance the Key to Fixing Liverpool's 4-3-3

At the start of the season, before a ball had been kicked, the assumption was that Liverpool would end the season with a first choice midfield of Fabinho, Keita and one other midfielder. Liverpool’s two new, big money, acquisitions were expected to dominate the team sheet sooner or later, and the question of which of the remaining trio – Milner, Henderson or Wijnaldum – would fit the third midfield slot. Since then, that particular question has been rather emphatically answered …
Naby Keita - Our Midfield Missing Link

Naby Keita - Our Midfield Missing Link

Building a team can’t be easy. Take a look at Manchester United. Take a look at Chelsea. Whilst one side - United - is performing much better since appoint a new manager (the natural reaction of a team so far against their former manager that surely anyone remotely positive would see an upturn) the other - Chelsea - have already seen their ‘new manager bounce’ fade away after an incredible and unsustainable start. Both teams have wonderful individual talent, but …
What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

What is Liverpool’s Best Midfield?

Comparative to previous years where Jurgen Klopp has had four players to choose from off the bat, Liverpool have benefitted from more options in the middle of the park this season, before the rigour of the campaign could take its toll, at least. It’s therefore been of little surprise to see the German utilise the extra options by tailoring his system to each opponent, obtaining the perfect mix of defensive resilience and attacking ingenuity across the board. However, the injuries …
