What If...Dembele scored to make it 4-0?

What If...Dembele scored to make it 4-0?

In the latest in our ‘What If?’ series, Henry Jackson takes a look back at a sliding doors moment from Liverpool's unforgettable Champions League tie against Barcelona last season. Football can be decided by incredibly fine margins, with legacies potentially shaped or ruined by one-off moments that can work for or against your team. For Liverpool, one moment that may be looked back upon as a genuine turning point in the Jurgen Klopp era took place on May 1st, 2019. …
The Importance of Wijnaldum Extending Liverpool Stay

The Importance of Wijnaldum Extending Liverpool Stay

For the time being, footballing soap operas have taken a back step, as the world attempts to tackle the pandemic affecting the planet. At Liverpool, talk of a potential move for Timo Werner remains a talking point, however, as does the future of Gini Wijnaldum - a player who has achieved so much since joining in surprise fashion from Newcastle back in 2016. The Dutchman is still yet to commit his future to the Reds, with his current contract expiring …
The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

The What Could Have Been Liverpool XI: The Defence

There have been several players in Liverpool's recent past who have enjoyed the best football of their careers at Anfield and inscribed themselves into the club's history with memorable performances. Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Fernando Torres -- to name but three -- either spent all of their careers or, in Gerrard's case as good as, with the Reds or -- with Torres as an example -- enjoyed their career-best runs of form in a Liverpool shirt. There have been …
What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

What Makes The Reds So Great Part 2

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds — who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run — find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …
Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

Why Mario Gotze could be perfect for Liverpool

“He taught me everything about professional football. He let me play. I often speak to [Jurgen] Klopp. We never stopped talking. He knows me very well and that I am always looking for new challenges.” Mario Gotze, speaking to DAZN earlier this year, left the door ajar on a potential reunion with Klopp. He was on Liverpool’s radar in 2016, too, but opted for a return to Borussia Dortmund at the time.  Speaking in the 2018 documentary, Being Mario Gotze, …
Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Why hasn't Divock Origi kicked on from Madrid - and is Klopp to blame?

Not only did Divock Origi's goal in the Champions League final reaffirm Liverpool's status as European royalty it also provided the impetus for this season's title bid. However, one person the goal seems to have had the least impact on is the man who actually provided that moment of magic in Madrid. There's no doubting Origi will be remembered extremely fondly by Reds' fans having scored a countless number of important goals, but, you can't help but feel he hasn't …
How Would Coutinho Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

How Would Coutinho Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years...it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Amidst the lockdown lull, AI's Sam McGuire put the following proposition to the AI Writer's team, "Where would Liverpool legends from the Premier League era fit into this current team?". Articles …
Mohamed Salah or Luis Suarez?

Mohamed Salah or Luis Suarez?

Only Alan Shearer has scored more goals than Mohamed Salah in 100 Premier League appearances for a single club. The Liverpool forward has 70 goals for the Reds in 100 games. A remarkable return given he's a wide forward. He's managed to eclipse the likes of Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Thierry Henry, Sergio Aguero and Fernandes Torres. And yet people still underrate the Liverpool No.11 and overlook what he's doing for Jurgen Klopp's side. Since the inception of the Premier League, …
Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

Why Villa away is Liverpool's biggest win of 2019/20

When Liverpool do eventually win this Premier League title, there will always be moments looked back upon as the most pivotal during the season. For me, the game that stands out more than any other is the trip to Aston Villa in November. This was long before the Reds started building an unfathomable lead over Man City at the top of the table - a time when many still viewed Pep Guardiola's all-conquering side at favourites. On November 2nd, Liverpool …
Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Liverpool will be crowned Premier League champions

Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. For the past week, in footballing circles, talk has centred around whether or not the 2019/20 campaign would be finished. Common sense would suggest a season not yet underway couldn’t take precedence over one that is very near completion. But there’s not much common sense in football.  Rival fans, desperate to ensure Liverpool aren’t crowned champions, have latched onto the idea that this season should be expunged from the history …
