What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

What If...Henderson wasn't sent-off against Man City?

In the latest in our 'What If?' series, Jordan Henderson's damaging red card against Manchester City is bemoaned by Henry Jackson. Anyone who reads my work or has to suffer through my endless tweets will know that I am a big admirer of Henderson. A player who has been almost ridiculously maligned by some down the years, he has now forged quite a career at Liverpool, captaining the Reds to Champions League glory. Next May, he will hopefully become Liverpool's …
Why Liverpool Being Hated is One Huge Compliment

Why Liverpool Being Hated is One Huge Compliment

So this is how it feels to be hated. Feels good, doesn't it? Although Liverpool haven't exactly spent their post-glory days being liked the world over, there has never been too much animosity from the masses. Of course, Man United and Everton fans have understandably loathed them throughout, and other sets of supporters have also shown plenty of dislike, but this is different. For the first time in almost 30 years, the Reds are the team to hate more than …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

This time, the Anfield leg offered Liverpool the opportunity to go nine points clear of their rivals, in November. Titles cannot be won in November, but they can be lost. Whether …

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
Ruthless Liverpool Ruin City To Establish 9 Point Lead

Ruthless Liverpool Ruin City To Establish 9 Point Lead

Liverpool find themselves nine points clear at the summit of the Premier League table thanks to a 3-1 win over Manchester City at Anfield. Goals from Fabinho, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané gave the rampant Reds a 3-0 lead before Bernardo Silva snatched a late consolation for the visitors. Manager Jurgen Klopp elected to pick what is known as his tried and tested midfield -- with Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum ahead of Fabinho -- and he was rewarded in …
Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Stop And Smell The Roses - A Look Ahead To Liverpool v Man City

Here we are, on the precipice of the most important match ever in the history of football since 1992, the dawn of time (historical accuracy brought to you by Sky Sports, Sky Bet and Gary Neville’s pompous sense of self-importance)....... AND IT’S LIVE. The Reds, a crack commando unit, sent to play two games within 24 hours on two separate continents for a crime Sadio Mane didn’t commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum-security two fixture prison by “lashing …

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …
Time For Liverpool's Title Bid To Get Serious

Time For Liverpool's Title Bid To Get Serious

Liverpool are off to a good start in the Premier League, having won their opening five games to open up a five point lead at the top of the league. However, this is where the hard work really begins. Liverpool’s trickiest game on paper so far has been at Anfield, where they hosted an Arsenal side that have really struggled against the Reds in recent years. Away trips to Burnley and Southampton are always testy, but they simply aren’t difficult …
