Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 1 Ajax - Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.0 Great ball for the first goal, and looked assured from the outset. Great distribution and couldn’t do nothing for the opening goal. Had a good steady game. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Looked bright & determined from the start. Lost his man for their opening goal, and should have been more alert to stop the through ball. Was good going forward, but still had issues in his defensive duties. …
How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

How This Period Can Recalibrate The Reds

I work in mechanical engineering, and it means I often have to use various devices in order to test that which requires inspection. Having been in the industry for close to 25 years, I’m pretty aware when something isn’t quite right, and how to adjust. In order to maintain certain levels, pretty much all instrumentation requires a yearly calibration in order to fine tune the apparatus. An engineers' worth is often graded by his ability to overcome problems (or unearth …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool VS Everton

Well that wasn't good now, was it? Everton 0-0 Liverpool. For the fourth time in six games, Liverpool dropped points. The Reds now sit six points off the top of the table despite having had a very favourable run of games in this opening phase of the season. Liverpool have problems right now.

Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 9.0 Both keepers came away with plenty of praise, and kept the clean sheets intact for each opposing side. Ali was big, and made some key saves to ensure Liverpool stayed in the hunt for victory. His importance is critical, but perhaps a little worrying how reliant we were. Man of the match. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 5.0 His form is a major concern, and perhaps an indication that he simply isn’t enjoying life in defence anymore. His …
What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

Liverpool need a midfielder. This is no surprise, secret or revelation.  But there is a big difference between a midfielder and a midfielder suited to Liverpool. There are plenty of midfielders in the world. There are few who are good enough to improve Jurgen Klopp’s middle third. However, one thing that isn’t being discussed in great detail is what sort of midfielder the Reds ideally need.  Is it a controller to fill in for Thiago, a runner to replace Jordan …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Well that was one way to bounce back after a terrible start to the season. Having dropped seven points in their first three games, Liverpool took Bournemouth to the cleaners on Saturday afternoon at Anfield.

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

If you had the chance to listen to the latest edition of ‘Rate, Don’t Hate’ podcast on the Anfield Index, you’ll know that I’m all for some form of shake-up within this current Liverpool team. As it stands, the injury crisis is alarming, and will make certain decisions a necessity when the times comes to picking the eleven for next Monday evening. What we do know is that Darwin will be joining that injury list for the next few weeks, …
Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Time For Darwin To Explode

Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Time For Darwin To Explode

No Liverpool fan is happy with how the Reds' opening game against Fulham went, and it really is a question as to who starts this game. Injuries are an issue, but there is still more than enough to collect all three points. The balance of the team needs to be addressed and certain games simply require certain players to be starting. We know Thiago Alcantara is out, joining both Curtis Jones and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on the midfield injured list. With …
Naby Keïta & His Window Of Opportunity For Liverpool

Naby Keïta & His Window Of Opportunity For Liverpool

As soon as Thiago Alcantara was confirmed as an injury casualty, most Liverpool fans panicked given the Spaniard's superb influence on this current Liverpool side. The Liverpool shape can commonly be predicted with a clear understanding of  its structure. Thiago Alcantara has operated as the orchestrator and tempo setter in every game he’s played, and his lack of availability is of course a concern. He has been able to enhance his physicality and get up to speed, within a league …
What would Matheus Nunes have brought to Liverpool?

What would Matheus Nunes have brought to Liverpool?
