It's Time For Mo Salah To Step Up Against United

It's Time For Mo Salah To Step Up Against United

This is going to be a controversial one, eh? I love Mo Salah. I think he’s the best player in the Premier League, I think he’s the best player Liverpool have had in a long time and I think he’s plausibly the third best player in the world. He’s a vital cog in our attacking unit, I’d be tempted to give him Player of the Year again, and I think he’s capable of bringing us a crapload of trophies. But …
Anfield, Europe, Liverpool - Here We Go Again

Anfield, Europe, Liverpool - Here We Go Again

Liverpool, Anfield, Europe. It’s a combination that has a real history of magic. How many great teams have come to Anfield, expecting to get a result, and been summarily turned over, the sheer force of the stadium, the crowd and the team pulling through. To be fair, in my lifetime, at least, that has certainly been helped by managers that have thrived in European competition. Rafa Benitez was an absolute master of the two-legged knockout, and Jurgen Klopp has a …

Observations as Liverpool Dispatch Bournemouth

Liverpool produced the perfect response after two frustrating draws against Leicester and West Ham with a routine 3-0 win against Bournemouth to retake their place at the top of the table before Manchester City face Chelsea on Sunday. The Reds delivered a full-proof performance with Sadio Mane opening the scoring before a goal from Gini Wijnaldum and Mohamed Salah either side of half-time ensured the three points.

Key Stats As Reds Resurgent Against Bournemouth

Key Stats As Reds Resurgent Against Bournemouth

Liverpool moved back to the top of the Premier League for the time being with a fantastic 3-0 win over Bournemouth. But what are the key stats from yet another top performance at Anfield? Midfield Maestro Naby Leads The Charge Overall, Liverpool’s midfield were absolutely excellent, and at the heart of that was Naby Keita.

West Ham 1-1 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

West Ham 1-1 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

Liverpool battled out another frustrating stalemate, recording a second successive 1-1 draw, this time against West Ham. Considered by some an opportunity scorned, enabling Manchester City a route back into the Premier League title race (although they were never really out of it were they) and others another point in a patch where the team are clearly struggling, there remains mixed emotions across the park about how the table is shaping up in the early stages of February. Like the …
Sadio Mane: Liverpool's Indispensable Attacker

Sadio Mane: Liverpool's Indispensable Attacker

Sadio Mane has not scored in 18 of his last 23 appearances for Liverpool - that is quite some stat. In isolation this is nowhere near good enough for a wide-forward. However, what Mane brings to this side is something which very few attacking players in world football could offer. Whether he's playing on the left of a front three, left of a midfield four or right of a midfield four, Mane can be trusted. Because of this versatility and …
Yogi Herr: Klopp Proving To Be Smarter Than The Average Manager

Yogi Herr: Klopp Proving To Be Smarter Than The Average Manager

Six foot four, grizzly, often found near benches. The majority of the population, when given that description, would think of a certain park custodian with an affinity for stealing picnic baskets: Yogi Bear. In the world of football, though, one’s mind drifts towards only one man, Jurgen Klopp. Charismatic and always looking to share a laugh, it's been just over 2 years since the lofty German became Anfield’s own custodian, a catalyst for the changes which have resulted in the …
Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

Why Judging Mané and Firmino By Goals Scored is Foolish

While Mohamed Salah once again stole all of the headlines in Liverpool's latest win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium at the weekend, it can be quite easy for criticism to be drawn to his attacking colleagues as to their contributions to goals this season. Jürgen Klopp's revered front three draw plaudits the world over last season for their dazzling displays both domestically and in Europe, as the Reds plundered goals for fun and amassed 47 goals in the Champions …
Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

Should Liverpool keep Daniel Sturridge?

The striker’s contract is due to expire in the summer. Many fans are divided on whether to offer Daniel Sturridge a new contract or let him go for free. So, what shall it be? The England international has been at Liverpool for six years this month since January 2013. Yes, he has been injury prone, but he has also had some fine moments for the club. If you cast your mind back to his debut for Liverpool in the FA …
Scintillating Liverpool Are Sending Out A Statement

Scintillating Liverpool Are Sending Out A Statement

Well, that was something, wasn’t it? Liverpool clearly enjoy playing Arsenal, as Bobby Firmino turned the heat up to eleven, ably supported by Salah and Mané as ever, with Gini Wijnaldum – another player who always turns up to play Arsenal – dominating the midfield, as well as typically great performances from the likes of Robbo and VVD. In any case, Liverpool turned in an absolutely barnstorming display to see off Arsenal 5-1, a performance that evoked the best of …
