No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

No More Conservative Midfields for Liverpool

This title race is killing you, admit it. All the times Liverpool were buried in sixth, meagre and irrelevant seem like the golden days of old compared to the ninety-minute-long heart attack Liverpool fans are forced to endure on a weekly – sometimes bi-weekly – basis. Bring Hodgson back, for God’s sake. Seeing as that’s unlikely, and seeing as Liverpool are firmly stuck in a title race in which they have to make up the ground, the nerves have manifested …
Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

Durability A Key Factor In Liverpool's Success

When you look at Liverpool’s success so far this season, one of the key reasons that the team has played consistently well is the lack of injuries to key players. Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold aside, of Liverpool’s main starting XI (or starting X plus one if we’re being fair), nobody has picked up anything more than a minor niggle this season. And some would say that in that respect, Liverpool have been very lucky. Going through the team, there …

Fabinho's Versatility Embodies His Growing Influence At Anfield

As Liverpool embarked on the first-leg of their Champions League round of 16 tie, there were staunch questions surrounding the weakened defence.

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

The next batch of fixtures see the Reds come up against the German powerhouse that is Bayern Munich in the Champions League before a pivotal trip to Old Trafford to face a resurgent Manchester United side in a potential title-deciding Premier League clash. Perhaps not the best time to be in the midst of an injury crisis that has taken out a number of players - …

Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Should Liverpool Have Signed a Defender in January?

Well, yes. As it stands right now, Joe Gomez’s injury cloud has only darkened – perhaps turning into a dreaded storm cloud should his spell on the sidelines span further than Liverpool’s tie against Bayern Munich in February – and Liverpool are still without an actual right-back. All while still remaining firmly on top of the Premier League table. If Liverpool wish to stay there, they may need a functioning defence. As it stands, they’re standing on a giant’s shoulders, …
