Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Should Kostas Tsimikas be a starter for Liverpool?

Kostas Tsimikas is going to give Jurgen Klopp a selection headache.  The Greece international impressed yet again against Arsenal as he extended his run of starts without conceding a goal to seven. In fact, Liverpool are yet to concede in a game Tsimikas has started.  The 25-year-old hasn’t put a foot wrong and many fans believe he should be a starter ahead of Andrew Robertson. The Scotland captain has had a few dodgy moments with his positioning and his end …
Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Andy Robertson's place in Liverpool's starting line-up is under intense scrutiny. Over the past few weeks, maybe even the past couple of months, the calls for Kostas Tsimikas to replace him have grown progressively louder. Before the season began, I'd argue that the only position up for debate in Liverpool's strongest XI was centre-forward, but with Tsimikas displaying his capabilities and Robertson failing to hit the heights, Roberto Firmino isn't the only stalwart looking over his shoulder. This should, of …
Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool continued their 100% winning start to the Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield. Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored the goals in front of full Anfield house as the Reds, after a slow start, deservedly swept to victory against Sean Dyche's visitors. Burnley, who were undefeated away to Liverpool for two seasons, started well and they tested Alisson early when Dwight McNeil -- comfortably their best player on the day -- let rip with …
Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool opened up their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win away to Norwich. Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah wrapped up the points for the Reds, continuing the good form they showed at the end of last season in a good -- if not spectacular performance -- performance. Jurgen Klopp elected for an attacking lineup with the front three of Sadio Mane, Salah and Jota supported a midfield of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, and James …
Liverpool Left-Back Ready to Push For Starting Berth

Liverpool Left-Back Ready to Push For Starting Berth

Liverpool's Kostas Tsimikas insists he is ready to push for a more significant role this season as he looks to push on at Anfield. Tsimikas made just two late substitute appearances in last season's Premier League while starting only two matches in the Champions League as well. Still only 25, Tsimikas hopes to make more of a contribution this season as our backup left-back. He also acknowledges the fact that he has one of the current best left-backs in world …
Shaqiri sings praises of Andy Robertson's understudy

Shaqiri sings praises of Andy Robertson's understudy

Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri believes that Kostas Tsimikas can go on to become a "very important player for the club". Tsimikas joined The Reds in a €13 million move from Olympiacos last August but has seen his game-time severely limited due to the incredible fitness of Andy Robertson and injury issues throughout the rest of the back four. There's no doubt that if Virgil van Dijk was not injured and playing regularly on the left side of the two centre-halves, then …
Liverpool Drew In Denmark

Liverpool Drew In Denmark

Liverpool drew their Champions League group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Midtjylland. An early Mohamed Salah gave the Reds the lead before the hosts levelled proceedings through an Alexander Scholz penalty. More VAR drama ensued as Liverpool were denied what appeared a perfectly legitimate late winner through Takumi Minamino, but the video assistant referee -- mistaking Sadio Mane's arm for that of one of the hosts defenders -- disallowed the Japan international's goal for handball in the …
He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …
Kostas Tsimikas In Perfect Developmental Environment

Kostas Tsimikas In Perfect Developmental Environment

Liverpool addressed their depth issue at left-back when they completed the signing of Kostas Tsimikas from Olympiacos on M0nday. The 24-year-old Greek international moves to Anfield for a fee in the region of £11,000,000 and will act as the understudy Andrew Robertson. Given the emphasis placed on the Reds' full-backs to create, their role is energy consuming -- more so than other areas in the team -- and having an adequate back up to Robertson -- as well as Trent …
Tsimikas Can Become A Shrewd Liverpool Signing, Says Greek Expert

Tsimikas Can Become A Shrewd Liverpool Signing, Says Greek Expert

Greek football expert Stel Stylianou believes that Kostas Tsimikas has the ideal mentality to succeed at Liverpool.  The 24-year-old left-back has joined the Reds from Olympiacos after the English champions agreed a fee in the region of £11,000,000 with the Greek giants.  With Andrew Robertson the only recognized senior left-back at the club, Liverpool -- who, among other options such as Sevilla's Sergio Reguilon, were said to be interested in Norwich’s Northern Ireland international Jamal Lewis -- made the signing …
