Liverpool's Candidates To Replace Lallana

Liverpool's Candidates To Replace Lallana

Adam Lallana's Liverpool career appears to be in it's final throes. Signed in the ill fated summer of 2014, the 31 year old's Anfield career -- despite being a favourite of both the coaches he's worked with, Brendan Rodgers and Jurgen Klopp -- has been hampered by a spate of injuries. And now, with the attacking midfielder's contract dwindling down, it appears likely that his time with the Reds is coming to an end. According to the well connected David …
Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

It feels as though Liverpool are the only top team not allowed to have more than eleven good players. Whenever there’s a link to a top player, the media and countless pundits pipe up to claim they’d struggle to break into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI so they shouldn’t be signed.  It’s happened recently with Timo Werner. He’s been linked with a move to Merseyside for the best part of three years now but reports claiming he’s set to leave RB …

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …
Liverpool 5-2 Everton: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: A Tactical Breakdown

The fixtures seem to flash past in a blur. It's hard to imagine how it feels for Jürgen Klopp, given his side barely have time to rest, let alone develop match specific tactics between recovery days and fitness top-up sessions. Rotation is a necessity for Liverpool if they are to get through this utterly chaotic wintery whirlwind of matches. Against Everton, Klopp was exceptionally bold, with five players rotated out, and Origi, Shaqiri and Lallana all brought in for the …
The perfect back-up to Fabinho

The perfect back-up to Fabinho

It's difficult to impress when your side loses 6-2 over two matches but Genk midfielder Sander Berge certainly caught the eye against the European champions. According to reports, the Reds are interested in signing the 21-year-old. Though this isn't confirmed, talk is he has an £18million release clause in his deal. To Genk, that is a massive fee. To a Premier League club, however, that is nothing more than a drop in the ocean. Especially when Berge has many traits …
Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

The question of whether Trent Alexander Arnold will transition from a right back to a midfielder is often asked in footballing circle. Such is the 21 year old's unique skill-set, it is felt by many that he is wasted at full back. His talents, it is said, would be better suited to a more central position where he could receive the ball more and have a bigger influence on proceedings. The truth is, however, that the academy graduate -- despite …
The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
