Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

After waiting eagerly for 106 days for Liverpool to get back into action, the Merseyside derby was in all honesty quite a languid affair. The hype far outweighed the action, as Liverpool toiled but rarely troubled Everton, who had the better chances at Goodison Park, but the spoils were shared as Merseyside welcomed back Premier League football. There were positives to take on the short trip back to Anfield; Naby Keita looked incredibly sharp and was easily Liverpool's stand-out man. …
Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

When the upcoming fixture list gets released, one of the biggest matches of the season is always Everton at Goodison Park. It is a match that carries great importance for the city and supporters of each side. As the first match back for both Liverpool and Everton since the Premier League shut down due to the coronavirus, the Merseyside Derby carried with it even more meaning this time around. As Jurgen Klopp has said, football is often the most important …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

After over 100 days without seeing the Reds in action in the Premier League, we were treated to as drab a derby as you’re ever likely to see. 0-0 was perhaps the most predictable scoreline when looking at the recent results at Goodison Park - combine that with the fact neither side has played a competitive match in three months, a scoreless draw was always very likely. Everton will perhaps feel a tad unlucky seeing as they forced a good …
Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Liverpool missed the chance to move closer to a 19th league title as they laboured to a scoreless draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The Reds owned the possession but -- shorn of the services of injury precaution rested Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson -- struggled to prize open the stubborn, deep sitting defence of the home team. The lack of fluency that a three-month break would engender on a team was evident and the visitors …
Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Liverpool's Werner Swerve Could Strengthen Team Bond

Excuse the pun, but Timo Werner's decision to join Chelsea came out of the blue. The RB Leipzig forward publicly flirted with the Reds on an almost constant basis; notably taking time to flutter his eyelashes at Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp -- describing both the team and the coach as "the world's best" -- after the Bundesliga side -- thanks to a penalty from Werner himself -- defeated Spurs in the Champions League round of 16 first leg. Then news …
A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

When Liverpool beat FC Barcelona, FC Bayern and a host of Europe’s elite to secure the signature of Naby Keita it was heralded as a coup. The Guinean captain was a whirlwind in the middle third for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and appeared to be the definition of a box-to-box midfielder. He scored goals. He made assists. He racked up tackles and interceptions at an alarming rate (4.81 during his final season in Germany), and his dribbling figures were …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
