Why can't you play like that every week, Dejan?

Why can't you play like that every week, Dejan?

I'm sure I wasn't the only one who grimaced, groaned, groaned and flailed when I heard that Dejan Lovren was starting on Saturday. Not only because... Well, he's Dejan Lovren, but because he was to come up against a striker in Jamie Vardy that has a brilliant goal scoring record against the Reds and has also given Lovren many torrid times over recent years. "Why not Joe Gomez?", I cried at the radio as I made my way towards Anfield. …
Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven to play Leicester this weekend

Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven to play Leicester this weekend

Liverpool take on Leicester City at Anfield today in the Premier League. Here's the starting lineup we think Jurgen Klopp will select for this huge fixture. Apart from Alisson Becker - who it seems this game may just have arrived too soon for - The Reds should be at full strength. Adrian will continue in goals in place of Alisson. The Spaniard, besides the mishap against Southampton, has done a wonderful job after being called upon just a few days …

Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Jamie Carragher reckons Liverpool need to sign Leicester star

Jamie Carragher reckons Liverpool need to sign Leicester star

Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher believes that James Maddison is one signing that The Reds should make to close the gap on Manchester City. Speaking on Sky Sports' Monday Night Football, Carragher sang the praises of the Leicester City midfielder who moved to the King Power Stadium last summer from Norwich City. Maddison went on to score seven goals and provide seven assists in 35 starts in his debut Premier League season for The Foxes. On MNF, Carragher said:
“I …
Unpacking Liverpool and City's Title Run-In

Unpacking Liverpool and City's Title Run-In

It doesn't matter how they go in at this stage of the season, it just matters that they do. Toby Alderweireld's own goal in the 90th minute gave Liverpool a potentially pivotal three points on Sunday, ensuring they returned to the top of the Premier League with six games left to play. The Reds, who have played one more game than title rivals Manchester City, were far from their vintage selves and looked for all the world as though they …

Key Stats As Reds Miss Golden Opening vs Foxes

Well, that was bad, wasn’t it? Liverpool dropped points to a side outside the top six for the first time with a disappointing 1-1 draw with Leicester City. But what were the key stats from a cold, and horrible night inside Anfield? Lacklustre Reds Fail To Fire As far as attacking performances go, this was bad. Liverpool mustered just ten shots, compared to their PL average of 15, with just seven of those coming from open play and just four …

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

11 Day Break At The Right Time For Bruised Reds

Liverpool survived an incredible game of football to see off Crystal Palace 4-3 at Anfield. But it was a game that left the already struggling Reds bloodied, bruised and increasingly threadbare, with Rafa Camacho finishing the game at right-back, Bobby Firmino and Adam Lallana in central midfield, and Joël Matip played his first full ninety minutes since breaking his collarbone back in early December against Napoli. It’s fair to say then, that the last thing Liverpool need would be another …
Liverpool's Midfield Imbalance

Liverpool's Midfield Imbalance

So far this season, Liverpool have accumulated 12 points after winning their first four matches of the campaign, even despite the Reds barely moving into second gear. Klopp's title challengers have thus far won 4-0, 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1, but in one of those contests, Liverpool struggled considerably to regain control more so than in their previous three matches. Against Leicester City and despite collecting all three points, the team were lucky to escape with the win having lost the …
