Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Should Fading Wijnaldum Return to Face Chelsea?

Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have felt like two sparkling new signings over the past week. Both have done perfectly well at times throughout this season, particularly the former, but Liverpool's last two matches have been significant for the likeable pair. The wins over Southampton and Porto allowed the Reds to continue their winning streak, now at six victories in a row, and it was Henderson and Keita who were the biggest positives. The skipper was left out of the …
The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

There was a sense of righteous vengeance amongst the Liverpool fan-base as Jordan Henderson strode into the picture to stroke home Liverpool’s pressure-relieving third goal against Southampton and send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table. A captain justified a player who had finally thrown off the shackles of criticism and demonstrated that he was good enough to play a vital role in Liverpool’s title challenge. And certainly, it was an excellent performance off the bench …
The Big Change in Andy Robertson’s Attacking Play This Season

The Big Change in Andy Robertson’s Attacking Play This Season

https://twitter.com/Sennesation/status/952888473152905216 Andy Robertson – so good that even Manchester United managers can’t stop themselves from enthusing about him. Here, we’ll compare his underlying numbers from last season and the present campaign, and we’ll see that while many of Robertson’s top-line stats have remained much the same, there’s one pivotal area of the Scotland captain’s game that’s changed this term. Measures of excellence Let’s start by underlining just how remarkable Robertson has been this season. He currently has the fourth-highest number …
Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky, lucky Liverpool eh? Comments about all the circumstances in which luck has favoured the Reds this season are out in force after their late goal against Spurs, courtesy of Hugo Lloris punching the ball onto the back of Toby Alderweireld, and there are a lot of frustrated opposition fans, as well as journalists, keen to jump on the Reds’ lucky streak. First things first, we were lucky against Spurs. No two ways about it. On balance, the second half …
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 …
How Much Will Tiredness Affect the Premier League Title Race?

How Much Will Tiredness Affect the Premier League Title Race?

The Premier League title race is going to be decided by fine margins this season, as the battle reaches boiling point. Liverpool and Man City have been at loggerheads throughout the campaign, which for the neutrals watching on must have made for a thrilling spectacle. Both sides are churning out points at rapid rates and the eventual victor is likely to have to achieve close to 100 points to secure glory. With the painfully dull international break now out of …
Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

International breaks are annoying, aren’t they? Fresh off the back of three pulsating Liverpool victories in a week, approaching the back end of the season, ready for the final run-in, and now we get two full weeks of no Liverpool action, and having to watch international teams play largely pointless fixtures against the backdrop of hoping nobody from LFC gets injured. But this article isn’t going to be a gripe at the lack of Liverpool action over the next couple …
Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Liverpool continued their resurgence towards the top of Europe’s elite with an incredible 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena over a Bayern Munich side that were never allowed to get going. And what for me, is potentially interesting about the victory is how low-key some of the celebration and conversation is at the moment – especially compared to say Manchester United vs PSG. Obviously, Liverpool didn’t have to come back from two goals down, given how comprehensively they shut Bayern …
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mané has taken the Premier League by storm in 2019, scoring eight goals in Liverpool’s ten league games this calendar, including seven in his last five at Anfield. However, on the other hand, Liverpool’s top scorer and attacking talisman Mo Salah has slowed the scoring stakes, scoring just four goals in his last ten, firing blanks in seven of his last ten games, having failed to score in just three of his previous ten starts. So what has shifted …
Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …
