The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

The Great Henderson Debate - Reignited

There was a sense of righteous vengeance amongst the Liverpool fan-base as Jordan Henderson strode into the picture to stroke home Liverpool’s pressure-relieving third goal against Southampton and send the Reds back to the top of the Premier League table. A captain justified a player who had finally thrown off the shackles of criticism and demonstrated that he was good enough to play a vital role in Liverpool’s title challenge. And certainly, it was an excellent performance off the bench …
The Big Change in Andy Robertson’s Attacking Play This Season

The Big Change in Andy Robertson’s Attacking Play This Season

https://twitter.com/Sennesation/status/952888473152905216 Andy Robertson – so good that even Manchester United managers can’t stop themselves from enthusing about him. Here, we’ll compare his underlying numbers from last season and the present campaign, and we’ll see that while many of Robertson’s top-line stats have remained much the same, there’s one pivotal area of the Scotland captain’s game that’s changed this term. Measures of excellence Let’s start by underlining just how remarkable Robertson has been this season. He currently has the fourth-highest number …
How Much Will Tiredness Affect the Premier League Title Race?

How Much Will Tiredness Affect the Premier League Title Race?

The Premier League title race is going to be decided by fine margins this season, as the battle reaches boiling point. Liverpool and Man City have been at loggerheads throughout the campaign, which for the neutrals watching on must have made for a thrilling spectacle. Both sides are churning out points at rapid rates and the eventual victor is likely to have to achieve close to 100 points to secure glory. With the painfully dull international break now out of …
The Growing Influence of Fabinho on Liverpool's Build-Up Play

The Growing Influence of Fabinho on Liverpool's Build-Up Play

Liverpool dominating possession but failing to break down a well-organised defence became an all too familiar tale last season. From bore draws at home to Stoke and Manchester United to an away point at Everton, a lack of progression and intelligence in our build-up play was a frustrating trend we just couldn't shake off. Although, in recent weeks, goalless draws to Everton and Manchester United have ensued, these kind of performances and results have become a rarity rather than the …
Reanalysing Adam Lallana

Reanalysing Adam Lallana

In light of how manager Jürgen Klopp has come in and changed Liverpool’s style of play, it’s come time once again to reanalyse Adam Lallana’s role at the club. Changes changes Every football fan has seen it before. A new manager comes in and, in most cases, wants to spark some changes in the team. For Klopp, those changes were all highly anticipated. Supporters were referencing gegenpressing and heavy-metal football, and how much better, or at least different, it would …
Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Liverpool continued their resurgence towards the top of Europe’s elite with an incredible 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena over a Bayern Munich side that were never allowed to get going. And what for me, is potentially interesting about the victory is how low-key some of the celebration and conversation is at the moment – especially compared to say Manchester United vs PSG. Obviously, Liverpool didn’t have to come back from two goals down, given how comprehensively they shut Bayern …
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mané has taken the Premier League by storm in 2019, scoring eight goals in Liverpool’s ten league games this calendar, including seven in his last five at Anfield. However, on the other hand, Liverpool’s top scorer and attacking talisman Mo Salah has slowed the scoring stakes, scoring just four goals in his last ten, firing blanks in seven of his last ten games, having failed to score in just three of his previous ten starts. So what has shifted …
Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …
Liverpool's magnificent full-backs

Liverpool's magnificent full-backs

The Liverpool full backs put on a show at Anfield before an uninspiring team performance at the Goodison made the fan base collectively go into panic mode and forget about it. So maybe this article is a week at late, at least in from a narrative standpoint. Some trends are not dependent on the performance/result in last game - one of them is that our young British full backs are brilliant (and probably don't have enough cover). The five assists …
Key Stats As Liverpool Draw Another Blank - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Key Stats As Liverpool Draw Another Blank - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw by Everton that dented their title hopes further and saw them slip behind City in the table. But what were the key stats from a disappointing performance at Goodison Park? Goodison Blues  Whilst Liverpool’s unbeaten record over the Blues remains intact, with Liverpool having not lost since Roy Hodgson travelled to Goodison in 2010, but nevertheless, they’ve now drawn six games at the home of Everton since that game, winning just twice. …
