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 …
Gini Wijnaldum: Prime Example of Trusting Klopp's Transfer System

Gini Wijnaldum: Prime Example of Trusting Klopp's Transfer System

At £25 million, many Liverpool fans scoffed at the fee Jürgen Klopp forked out when signing Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle United back in 2016. Fast forward almost three years down the line, and the Dutchman is a Kop favourite having cemented himself as one of the club's most important players - something that many didn't ever think was going to happen. During his career at Anfield, Wijnaldum has adapted to a new, deeper role in Klopp's midfield and his recent …
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

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. Here are the observations from the match: Gini Wijnaldum shows Liverpool what they've …
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. His all-round game was outstanding, winning 7/8 tackles, making 97 passes at 91% accuracy means that he was able to completely control the game. But …
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 …
Shaqiri Failing Test as Regular Starter for Liverpool

Shaqiri Failing Test as Regular Starter for Liverpool

Liverpool were always going to drop points against a non-top-six side eventually, simply by the law of averages. To have almost reached February before succumbing to one of the Premier League's so-called 'lesser' outfits really is an achievement to be proud of. Think about how long ago August was and what you were doing back then. Think about how hot it was and how hideously cold it is now - it feels like a lifetime ago. So let's not be …
Three Games At A Time - Liverpool Need To Keep Plugging Away

Three Games At A Time - Liverpool Need To Keep Plugging Away

Every stage of a Premier League title race is crucial. I say that now to get it out of the way. The start was crucial – Liverpool winning their first six games of the season set the baseline. When the start is done, the next period leading up to Christmas is crucial – Liverpool managed to win nine games in a row including 7 in a row in December. The post-Christmas spell is critical, and I’ve already written about this …
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 …
