Klopp praises Naby Keïta as "super solution" after Reds win against Villa

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keïta was labelled a "top, top player" today by Reds boss Jürgen Klopp after the Guinea international helped break the deadlock against a stubborn Aston Villa defence. Keïta played 85 minutes of the 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Villa at Anfield, laying on the assist for Sadio Mané's opening goal. When asked at his post-match press conference about what he thought of Keïta's performance, Klopp said:
"Naby is a top player, a top player. It was a difficult …
Liverpool's Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool's Relegated Player Transfer Roulette

Liverpool have already felt the brunt of the financial pinch caused by the ongoing pandemic. Long linked with Timo Werner, the Reds -- who were either unwilling or unable to match the financial package on offer in West London -- were beaten to the signing of the German international by Chelsea. The prevailing sense, as suggested by all of the journalists close to the club, is that reigning European, World, and English champions will be relatively quiet in the upcoming …

Iconic Moments From A Season To Remember

Premier League Champions. Only we know how as a collective fanbase we've longed to hear those beautiful words. Everything about the manner in which the title was finally secured spells out poetic. Six years ago our title hopes were obliterated with a disappointing draw at Palace and a loss to Chelsea at home. Willian hammered in the final nail in the coffin with his goal thus handing the visitors a 2-0 victory and the Premier League title to City. Fast …

Appreciating the brilliance of game-changing Alisson

The last 20 minutes of last year's Champions League final are easy to forget, barring Divock Origi's trophy-clinching goal in the dying embers. It was a match to fall asleep to for the neutral, with little happening for vast chunks of proceedings, as Liverpool showed their experience and outmaneuvered an ineffective Tottenham side. In hindsight, however, the Reds were given a few scares as the minutes ticked by at the Wanda Metropolitano, as they lay agonisingly close to European Cup …
Henderson and Point Scoring

Henderson and Point Scoring

Social media can be a strange place. In the wake of Liverpool being crowned champions, some fans have used this as a point-scoring opportunity. They’re trawling back through the years to find tweets calling for FSG to sell up. They’ve found plenty of tweets criticising players as well. There are probably even some who have said a bad word or two against Jurgen Klopp. However, the popular topic for this seems to be Jordan Henderson.  The Liverpool skipper has always …

Time for Liverpool to kick on

The very best teams don’t sit on their laurels. The very best teams don’t let winning slow them down. This Liverpool team have already demonstrated that to an extent. They took the valour of winning last year’s Champions League trophy and used that to push them on to an unprecedented Premier League performance, securing the title with a record seven games to go, and the promise of more records remains. How Liverpool respond in the next seven games is in …

Liverpool's likely lineup to play Manchester City tonight

Newly-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool travel to face last season's title winners Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium tonight.

With five substitutes allowed per game for the remainder of this season, some youngsters are expected to get plenty of game-time for Liverpool over …
Reflecting on August's error of judgement

Reflecting on August's error of judgement

"Part of me can't help but think that the side that beat us to win the league by a point have strengthened while we've stood still." That's what I tweeted on 7 August 2019. Manchester City had just broken the bank for a big-name full-back again, this time Juventus' Joao Cancelo. Earlier in the summer, they had brought in Rodri, a coveted 23-year-old who seemed set for a seamless transition into Pep Guardiola's purring midfield. On 27 July, I had …
