Time for Liverpool's Old Trafford hoodoo to end

Time for Liverpool's Old Trafford hoodoo to end

So, here we go again. Man United away. A fixture that has provided more misery than any other for Liverpool supporters over the past 25 years. The Reds return from the international break facing one of their biggest matches in any season, but this one has a different feel to it than many that have taken place before it. Jurgen Klopp's men will rock up to Old Trafford not only favourites to pick up all three points at the home …
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 …
How Will Liverpool Cope Fighting on Two Fronts?

How Will Liverpool Cope Fighting on Two Fronts?

We're entering the final phase of the season, and four possibilities remain; the agony of another campaign without silverware, victory in a sensational title race, the sweet consolation of Champions League glory or the outright euphoria of landing both. There's a sense, though, that Liverpool's domestic and continental ambitions are independent, that the Reds might have to sacrifice their hopes in the Champions League to maximise their Premier League chances, especially given the close nature of the race and the …
Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Is it possible to love and hate a football team at the same time? It was easy to feel that way on Sunday, as Liverpool did their best to throw away valuable points at Fulham, in what would have been their most disappointing result of the season. Confidence was flowing as the Reds arrived in west London, with the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich showcasing their brilliance under Jurgen Klopp. A trip to a 19th-place struggling outfit in the spring …
Why Man United game is perfect preparation for Bayern away

Why Man United game is perfect preparation for Bayern away

You really have to have a long think back to remember a week of such magnitude for a Liverpool team. After Tuesday's stalemate with Bayern Munich, Klopp takes his side across the M62 to face bitter rivals Manchester United in what is a crucial game in the Reds' hopes to clinch a first league title since 1991. It's no doubt been a huge week for Liverpool in both the Champions League and the Premier League, and the return leg against …
In the Thick of It | A Huge Couple of Weeks Ahead for Liverpool

In the Thick of It | A Huge Couple of Weeks Ahead for Liverpool

The Reds are six months into the season and are still right in the thick of a title race. These next two weeks of football will have an immense impact going into the final stretch of the season. On Tuesday, Liverpool entertain Bayern Munich at Anfield in the first leg of the Round of 16 in the European Cup. Following last year’s pursuit of glory in Europe, in which Liverpool came up short in the final, the main attention has …
Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

Does Fabinho at centre back actually make sense?

It's starting to really get to the crunch period of the season for Liverpool. 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 - …
Fabinho and Henderson - an ideal midfield duo?

Fabinho and Henderson - an ideal midfield duo?

Fabinho's arrival on Merseyside was supposed to spell the end of Jordan Henderson as a Liverpool starter, despite the fact, the Liverpool No.14 retained the captaincy. However, the Brazilian's arrival might be what reignites the former Sunderland youngster's Liverpool career. The pair got the nod against Wolverhampton Wanderers, their first start as a two this season, and looked fairly dominant as the Reds extended their lead at the top of the table to four points. Up until that point, Jürgen Klopp …
Rivalries Within: Crossing Swords With Jose Mourinho

Rivalries Within: Crossing Swords With Jose Mourinho

Ask ten football fans: which is the world’s greatest football rivalry? You will get ten different answers – if not more. A Glaswegian may tell you that nothing is as fierce as the Old Firm Derby, Celtic vs Rangers, with its backdrop of simmering political and religious tensions. Ask a Milanese: he will tell you that the enmity between the reds and blues of AC Milan and Internazionale cannot be topped. Ask a Spaniard, and he may point to the …
Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Liverpool's recent Premier League record against Manchester United is woeful. If all matches were played without context, United would be the biggest two games of each league season for the Reds. Since Brendan Rodgers' wonderful 2013-14 side went and won 3-0 at Old Trafford, United haven't lost in the league to Liverpool. Domestically, United are eight unbeaten in the fixture, winning five and drawing three. Whilst that record doesn't only cover Jurgen Klopp's tenure, the German hasn't had much fortune …
