Jordan Henderson says Liverpool will continue to move forward despite Napoli defeat

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson believes The Reds will bounce back in the right way from their Champions League defeat at Napoli on Tuesday night. Jurgen Klopp's side lost 2-0 in Naples on the opening night of their Champions League title defence, thanks to a penalty from Dries Mertens and an injury-time goal from Fernando Llorente. Up until Napoli's disputed late penalty, the game was a pretty even affair with Liverpool's passing in the final third the main reason The Reds …
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 …
Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

This is the second year in succession that I'm sitting down to ponder how Liverpool were beaten at the Stadio San Paolo, but the circumstances feel different. Last season, it was more or less a case of a wretched team performance, but on the whole the Reds turned in a decent display at this time, even if their attacking bluntness returned. They only had themselves to blame in 2018, yet this time around they can legitimately feel hard done by …
Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven for the Napoli game tonight

Predicting Liverpool's starting eleven for the Napoli game tonight

Liverpool return to European competitive action tonight when they face Napoli at the Stadio San Paolo in Naples. We've had a go at predicting Jurgen Klopp's starting eleven. Carlo Ancelotti's Napoli side proved very stiff opposition for The Reds at the same stage of the competition last season. Liverpool will need to be at their best to get anything from the game in Italy. Jurgen Klopp is without Alisson and Nathaniel Clyne through injury while Naby Keita and Divock Origi …
Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

International breaks can often pose a challenge for teams on a winning streak, with an unnecessary interruption to the rhythm of the side. Against Newcastle, for the opening 15-20 minutes at least, it seemed that was the case. Newcastle opted to launch balls into the wide channels, and fight for second balls, but it was an uncharacteristic mistake by the Liverpool defensive line, in an attempt to play Newcastle offside, which was then followed by an individual mistake by Alexander-Arnold, …

Liverpool's Divock Origi will undergo a scan on the ankle injury he sustained against Newcastle on Saturday according to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. Origi needed treatment after going down injured in the early stages of Liverpool's 3-1 win over Newcastle. The Belgian international striker managed to play on until the 37th minute when he was then replaced by Bobby Firmino. Speaking after the game, Jurgen Klopp said:
“Unfortunately, Div twisted his ankle early in the game and had to then …
Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Finding the perfect forward to add to the Liverpool squad

Liverpool went into the summer transfer window looking to add attacking reinforcements. Fans wanted it to happen. Journalists mentioned the need for a fourth attacker.  French media linked the Reds with Nicolas Pepe, German press claimed Timo Werner was a target for the European champions while reports in Spain said Philippe Coutinho was set for a return to Merseyside. Yet when the window closed, Jurgen Klopp hadn’t added any attacking reinforcements.  It’s still early days, but the decision not to …
Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool look to continue their European form

Liverpool will bid to reach their third consecutive Champions League final this season and it is hard to see anyone stopping them. The Reds only lost the 2018 final due to a pair of howlers from Loris Karius, and they have been close to invincible since replacing him with £67 million man Alisson. Their home form is superb, the fans create a sensational atmosphere inside Anfield and that really should be enough to carry them all the way again in …
