Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

Imagining A Post Apocalyptic Anfield

A small drone whizzes down a deserted street. Two mangy dogs face off over possession of a discarded can. The tin echos as it bounces across pavement and concrete. The camera pans up, past the shuddered businesses and grey landscape as a shimmering, modern stadium comes into focus. Post apocalyptic Anfield. Because, no matter what happens to society, football will live on. Right? That is the assumption we're going on at least because if we can't assume Liverpool are coming back to …
Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool’s march towards a highly anticipated first Premier League title seemed to take a significant step on Sunday evening when they defeated old rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield.  The win saw the Reds extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 16 points but it didn’t come as so usually seen at Anfield these days. Jurgen Klopp’s men created the best chances of the game against a depleted United side but the scoreline remained on a …

"A special player" - Joe Gomez heaps praise on Liverpool teammate after victory over United

Liverpool's young centre-back Joe Gomez says he was "buzzing" for Virgil van Dijk after the Reds defender scored and helped his side to a clean sheet in the win over Manchester United on Sunday. Van Dijk soared above the United defence to head home a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner, giving Liverpool an early lead in the game. The Reds' number 4 was then commanding in defence when the visitors began to push for an equaliser late in the second half. Mohamed …

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven against Manchester United on Sunday?

Liverpool and Manchester United face-off at Anfield this Sunday evening in the Premier League. We've had a look at Liverpool's likely lineup for this huge game. Three senior players returned to full training at Melwood this week for The Reds so Jurgen Klopp will be delighted that his first-team squad is returning to full strength. Those players were Fabinho, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren. Such has been Joe Gomez's impressive form in central defence, it's unlikely he will lose his …
Liverpool out for revenge in Man United showdown

Liverpool out for revenge in Man United showdown

It's the only blip on Liverpool's near perfect league record this season. A frustrating 1-1 draw at Old Trafford is the only fixture in which Klopp's side have dropped points in the Premier League, and is likely the only thing worth bragging about if you're unfortunate enough to be a Manchester United fan at present. The game was scrappy for the first 60 minutes, and Liverpool will still be aggrieved that Rashford's opener was allowed to stand after a foul …

From winger to goal-scorer: A tactical look at Sadio Mané’s development

From winger to goal-scorer: A tactical look at Sadio Mané’s development

When Liverpool signed Sadio Mané from Southampton in the summer of 2016, many would have been forgiven for thinking that he would be just another Southampton signing on Merseyside. Around the same time, the Club had signed others from the South coast including Dejan Lovren, Nathaniel Clyne, Adam Lallana and, previously, Rickie Lambert. Some of which failed to live up to their hefty price tags. However, the development of Sadio Mané over the last three years has turned him into …
Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

The victory against Spurs was a much-needed riposte after the disappointing performance at Old Trafford two weekends ago. Liverpool stepped up to their mantle as mentality monsters; overcoming a poor start to comfortably dispatch a notoriously tricky rival in Spurs. A massive and much-needed win to maintain 6 points’ daylight between Klopp’s side and City. Recent fixtures against Spurs have been slightly turgid affairs. However, on Sunday, Liverpool’s tenacity allied with potent attacking flair, came out in full force. Alexander …

Well this article might be right for you. Liverpool found themselves in court last week fighting for the right to sign a deal with guaranteed revenue roughly equivalent to the deal that they are already on. Outrage! Clearly the Liverpool brass have been on a non-stop …
Predicting Liverpool's starting lineup for Manchester United game on Sunday

Predicting Liverpool's starting lineup for Manchester United game on Sunday

Liverpool travel to play Manchester United in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Sunday. We've had a go at predicting Jurgen Klopp's starting lineup. The big news being reported over the last week is that the club's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson Becker is back to full fitness and available for selection. While The Reds' stand-in 'keeper, Adrian, has done a fantastic job in helping Liverpool to an 8-game winning run to start the league season, it's widely expected that Alisson …
