Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Tactical Breakdown: Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

An uncharacteristically error-strewn opening game left Liverpool much to atone for. Against Chelsea, the side played with fanatic verve and doctrinal discipline, banishing the demons that had led to questions over Liverpool's commitment and ability to retain the title. This was, by a distance, the best Liverpool have played since March, six long months ago. Tactically, the instruction from the manager, Jürgen Klopp, was crystal clear: press high, and press hard. On paper, Liverpool's 4-3-3 was balanced against Chelsea's 4-3-3, …

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Key stats from an imposing victory

Liverpool capped off a glorious weekend with a commanding triumph against potential title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, maintaining their 100% start to the season. Here are some of the standout facts and figures from a key early win against Frank Lampard's 10 men. Outstanding Fabinho unruffled at centre-half Back in February 2019, Virgil van Dijk's suspension and Joe Gomez's injury forced Fabinho to slot-in as a centre-half when Bayern Munich visited Anfield. He was up against Robert Lewandowski and, …
Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

Thiago signs, so what's Liverpool's best midfield now?

It's the news we've all been waiting for. Thiago Alcantara is finally on his way to Merseyside to complete a highly anticipated switch from Bayern Munich. The 29-year-old Spanish maestro has long been linked with Liverpool over the summer transfer window and now, after seemingly reaching an impasse, a deal has been struck between the two clubs. Liverpool fans are rightly excited about seeing Thiago don his favoured number six shirt in Klopp's team, and he will undoubtedly bring him …
Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it. On a defensively-sloppy evening for the Reds, the one man who seemed to come in for …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …
The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

The Curious Case of Marko Grujic - What Could He Add To The First Team?

Marko Grujic's time at Liverpool may be about to come to an end. AC Milan look poised to bid for the midfielder, and it is likely that the Reds will accept. However, the latest reports indicate that Grujic may have the opportunity to prove himself, should these moves not materialise. The factors that dictate whether he is able to contribute are his performances during his loan spells at Hertha Berlin, his appearances for Liverpool and what he can provide that …
Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

Buyback On Brewster Benefits Both

The future of Rhian Brewster has proved to be a major talking point in the last few weeks. The talented forward enjoyed a strong pre-season for Liverpool, scoring three goals in two games, a run of form that led some fans to suggest that the Reds ought to keep the England youth international for the upcoming campaign instead of letting him depart on another loan. Mike McGrath of The Telegraph, however, reported that the English champions -- who were initially …

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …
Could Minamino Offer Midfield Magic?

Could Minamino Offer Midfield Magic?

Takumi Minamino's Anfield career hasn't really taken off yet. Despite some bright moments, including a well-taken goal -- which was part of an overall impressive cameo -- in the Community Shield versus Arsenal, the Japanese international is yet to hit the heights of his Red Bull Salzburg form yet. The 25-year old introduced himself to the Reds' faithful with a brilliant performance for the Austrian's at Anfield in last season's Champions League. Salzburg eventually found themselves on the receiving end …
