Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool's Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1

Liverpool’s Fullback Creativity and Recruitment Targets – Part 1 An analytical deep dive to profile Liverpool's fullback creativity and answer the question - is it sustainable? This season, Liverpool consistently lacked a midfield set-up that tasked a player to be a high performing creator and goal threat. That meant the absence of a midfielder to carry the ball past defensive lines, complete creative passes into the box and take dangerous shots from inside the box, all at a high level. …
Liverpool vs Barcelona - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Barcelona - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool take a break from the breathless scrap of the Premier League to face possibly the best team in Europe – Barcelona and Lionel Messi – in the Champions League semi-finals. The first leg is at the Nou Camp, where Liverpool remain the only English team to win, including on their last trip in 2007. But, what will be some of the potential key battles from a game that could define Liverpool’s season? Andy Robertson vs Lionel Messi Yeah, there’s …
Naby Keita Ensures Liverpool At Their Best

Naby Keita Ensures Liverpool At Their Best

Naby Keita. Look, I’ve been on board the Naby train since Day One. I maintain that he’s the most complete midfielder that this club has had since… well you know. He’s the best two-way midfielder in the Premier League and possibly in Europe, and he’s an absolutely incredible athlete. I’m getting all the superlatives out of the way in the first paragraph because I don’t want to be accused of being biased or having an agenda later on. Yes, I’m …

Title rollercoaster that may just bring silverware back to Anfield

Title rollercoaster that may just bring silverware back to Anfield

I’ve got to be honest. After the Everton draw I was devastated. It wasn’t so much that there weren’t enough games left to continue our title bid. It wasn’t the fact we lacked the quality in the squad. A Stale Approach For me, it was the flatness of the performance following a similarly uninspired performance against the Red Devils a week earlier. Two draws following two similarly poor performances just a few weeks earlier against Leicester and West Ham. Eight …
Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …
Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

What a massive win! Liverpool were definitely the better side as they beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield. Sadio Mane opened the scoring, before Mohamed Salah thundered in a long-ranger at the Kop End to double the lead. The Reds had a few nervy moments after being two goals up, when Eden Hazard hit the post once, and forced a save off Alisson, but post that, there were no worries for the Reds. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - …
Naby-Mania is Running Wild, Brother

Naby-Mania is Running Wild, Brother

It may have taken longer than expected but Naby Keita has finally arrived for Liverpool. After showing glimpses at various times throughout the season, the £52million signing has had a big impact in the past week for the Reds. With top spot on the line, the Liverpool No.8 opened his account for the club against Southampton with an uncharacteristic goal - a stooping header at the back post - to level the game on the night. He then drilled in …
Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have felt like two sparkling new signings over the past week. Both have done perfectly well at times throughout this season, particularly the former, but Liverpool's last two matches have been significant for the likeable pair. The wins over Southampton and Porto allowed the Reds to continue their winning streak, now at six victories in a row, and it was Henderson and Keita who were the biggest positives. The skipper was left out of the …
No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

This title race is killing you, admit it. All the times Liverpool were buried in sixth, meagre and irrelevant seem like the golden days of old compared to the ninety-minute-long heart attack Liverpool fans are forced to endure on a weekly – sometimes bi-weekly – basis. Bring Hodgson back, for God’s sake. Seeing as that’s unlikely, and seeing as Liverpool are firmly stuck in a title race in which they have to make up the ground, the nerves have manifested …
