Reds draw Manchester United in FA Cup draw as they prepare to face rivals twice in a week

Liverpool have been handed the tough task of playing Manchester United away in the FA Cup fourth round. Jürgen Klopp's side eventually overcame Aston Villa's youth players in the third round at Villa Park last week. Now, they've been drawn to play Manchester United at Old Trafford in round four. The last time the sides met in the FA Cup was in 2012 at Anfield when Kenny Dalglish's men knocked United out, winning 2-1. Daniel Agger and Dirk Kuyt were …
Liverpool and Man United finally meet in fixture to match the hype

Liverpool and Man United finally meet in fixture to match the hype

When Liverpool play Man United, it always means a huge amount. It remains the No.1 fixture in England, bar none. The history between the cities, whether it be relating to music, fashion or the success of their football teams, makes it a heavyweight match-up that will forever feel special. Despite the build-up always being gargantuan and those pre-match nerves arriving regardless of where both sides are in the table, the hype is rarely justified. For starters, too many recent games …
Liverpool midfielder insists Reds want to

Liverpool midfielder insists Reds want to "play for everything" after FA Cup win at Aston Villa

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum says that Jürgen Klopp's men are hungry for success in every tournament they enter this season. Wijnaldum scored his side's second goal in their 4-1 win over a young Aston Villa side on Friday night in the third round of the FA Cup. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com after the victory, Wijnaldum said:
“We said at the beginning of the season that we wanted to play for everything. “Of course it’s difficult to play everything with your strongest …
Tactical Breakdown: Southampton 1-0 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Southampton 1-0 Liverpool

On Monday night the Champions travelled down to St Mary's to face a depleted Southampton side, who were without a number of key players, such as Alex McCarthy, Oriol Romeu and Ché Adams. The Saints lined up in a 4-4-2, in which they looked to press Liverpool's backline. Ralph Hassenhutl's team were also instructed to form a box around the deepest midfielder, Thiago, who would be pressed from all four players whenever he received the ball. As he passed the …
Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Liverpool travel to Villa Park tonight as they prepare to face Dean Smith's Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup. Jürgen Klopp is likely to field a much-changed side for The Reds as some youth talent and squad players are given the opportunity to showcase their talents in a push towards the first team. It is the ideal time for some of Liverpool's stars to be rested after some jaded-looking Premier League outings in recent weeks. Caoimhin …
Why the Liverpool system failed against Southampton

Why the Liverpool system failed against Southampton

Jurgen Klopp switched it up against Southampton. It’s very rare to see him spring a surprise like that, but he has done it previously. I’m not entirely sure if this one was forced on him due to injuries and players needing a rest or whether he thought this tactic would work against the Saints.  We’ll never actually know whether it would’ve worked either. The hosts scored after two minutes and their usual gameplan went out the window. Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side …
Nathaniel Phillips: Why Liverpool's Mr. Dependable Deserves a Long-Terms Role at the Club

Nathaniel Phillips: Why Liverpool's Mr. Dependable Deserves a Long-Terms Role at the Club

Nathaniel Phillips has all the attributes to become Liverpool's permanent, fourth-choice, centre back. Phillips, thanks to his scruffy beard and sweaty fringe, looks more like a hungover student than a Liverpool centre half. However, looks can be deceiving. His pragmatic style, limited capability and local connection to the club means that a role, as a long-standing deputy, should be on offer. The centre back has featured more than he would have expected this season, following the injuries to Virgil Van …
Reds apparently won't be pursuing a centre-back signing this month

Reds apparently won't be pursuing a centre-back signing this month

It has been reported that Liverpool will not be actively pursuing a centre-half signing during the January transfer window. According to James Pearce and Tom Worville in The Athletic, Jürgen Klopp and co are willing to go with what they have now for the rest of the season. This, despite the long-term injuries to the centre-back pairing of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk and the recurring injuries to Joël Matip. Liverpool's defensive midfielder Fabinho has become the new 'first-choice' …

Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

The date was November 12th, 2002, and Liverpool needed to win away to FC Basel to get through their Champions League group. Gerard Houllier's men found themselves 3-0 down before the half-hour mark had even arrived, with one player worse than anyone else on the pitch. That man's name? Steven Gerrard. He was wretched in Switzerland, spraying passes out of play and generally performing like someone devoid of all confidence and focus. A dreadful 45 minutes from Gerrard saw him …
