Leicester City 2 - 3 Liverpool: Back to Winning Ways

Leicester City 2 - 3 Liverpool: Back to Winning Ways

The Details Date: 23/9/17 Venue: King Power Stadium, Leicester Background As a result of those strange fixture anomalies that football can sometimes provide us with, Liverpool had to revisit the King Power Stadium this evening. Leicester, of course, had been the venue for the Reds' early exit from the Carabao Cup last Tuesday night. The two starting elevens today were vastly different from those on Tuesday night, however. Leicester welcomed back players like Vardy, Mahrez, Schmeichel, Maguire and Andy King. While …
Mahrez On The Move: Should Liverpool Be On Alert?

Mahrez On The Move: Should Liverpool Be On Alert?

Signing for a fee of £400,000 in 2014 from Le Havre, Riyad Mahrez played a key part in Leicester’s unexpected Premier League title win in 2015/16. The 26-year-old scored a total of 15 goals in the top flight that season, with another 10 goals and seven assists to his name this season. A campaign with two very different fortunes saw The Foxes finish 12th in the league but get further than any other English team in reaching the Champions League …

Liverpool v Leicester City: Key Battles

After the international break, the Reds are back in action in the Premier League. And what better way to do that, than to welcome the champions to the new Anfield. Nine thousand more fans that will back the Reds and a majestic looking Main Stand will greet Leicester City as they arrive at one of only two away grounds where they lost last season.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Preview: All Eyes on the Main Stand as the Reds Return Home

Liverpool host Leicester City in their first home game of the 2016-17 season on Saturday evening, as the newly renovated Main Stand makes it's first appearance to the nation.

Roberto Firmino - Exposing The Myths

Roberto Firmino - Exposing The Myths

Social media blew up in response to an interview that BT Sport pundit and former Liverpool player Michael Owen gave to the Daily Mirror. In it, Owen was asked about current Reds star Roberto Firmino and his response was surprising; he said he was split on him and claimed that he’d played well against Manchester City and Chelsea earlier in the season, but didn’t do it enough and was only giving one good performance in five or six games. That, …
The De-Evolution of Philippe Coutinho

The De-Evolution of Philippe Coutinho

I remember when we signed Philippe Coutinho from Inter Milan. I hadn't seen much of him other than a few games at Espanyol and the odd Inter game, one of which being their 4-3 victory over Spurs when Gareth Bale grabbed a hattrick. It was the Welshman that grabbed the headlines but I was quietly impressed by with the Inter number 29. Such tight close control, an eye for a pass and the technique to execute it. He had that …
A Look at Lovren & Sakho: Can It Work?

A Look at Lovren & Sakho: Can It Work?

There have been many shouts for Liverpool to make a big dip into the January transfer window and pull out some real quality during Jurgen Klopp’s first attempt to strengthen the team.  Several positions have been cited as “needed” in the immediate future, with a right-sided centre-back on the list for quite some time. But there are other areas that could use reinforcement as well, and no one knows what Klopp has planned for Merseyside.  On Boxing Day, Liverpool fans …
Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

Memorable Liverpool FC Boxing Day Games

I'm an advocate of changing the Premier League schedule so clubs have a mini winter break. I think it'll benefit the clubs in Europe and it'll benefit the league in the long term as you won't be blitzing the players and having them play in something silly like a game every 3 days...but, at the same time I think Boxing day football is alongside the opening day of the season and the final game of the season for games I …
