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 …

Fulham 1 Liverpool 2: Match Report

A day that could have been full of drama, in the end, went as expected for Liverpool Football Club. Oh, how we know this feeling in our stomachs went this club tends to make a meal of things that should have been much simpler.

Liverpool back on top as the Reds hold their nerve to scrape through

Liverpool back on top as the Reds hold their nerve to scrape through

Liverpool (and Milner) held their nerve as they beat Fulham by the odd goal in three to go back to the top of the table as the last international break of the season looms. Liverpool conceded an unexpected goal and it looked like Liverpool were going to drop points. Fortunately, the Fulham defence is the gift that keeps on giving and Liverpool snatched the three points which they desperately needed. The key observations from this nerve-wracking game! Liverpool back on …
Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Big Time Liverpool Continue To Defy The Doubters

Liverpool continued their resurgence towards the top of Europe’s elite with an incredible 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena over a Bayern Munich side that were never allowed to get going. And what for me, is potentially interesting about the victory is how low-key some of the celebration and conversation is at the moment – especially compared to say Manchester United vs PSG. Obviously, Liverpool didn’t have to come back from two goals down, given how comprehensively they shut Bayern …
Sadio Mane: The Main Man To Liverpool's Quest For Glory

Sadio Mane: The Main Man To Liverpool's Quest For Glory

Liverpool’s front-three was given praises upon praises last season for their pioneering role in a scintillating European journey that led them to the Champions League final. Mohamed Salah set a new Premier League record for the highest number of goals by one player in a single 38-game season with 32 goals from his 36 appearances while Roberto Firmino enjoyed his best goals return to date. Such was their brilliance that Sadio Mane’s role was often overlooked. It wasn’t down to …
Bayern 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Bayern 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool fans can dare to dream of a double after watching their team ruthlessly dispatch Bayern Munich and march into the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Though the Reds were disjointed at times, a combination of quality and killer instinct was enough to secure one of their most impressive victories of the season. Bayern, who almost always figure in this last four of the competition, were rebuffed with relative ease. After failing to muster a single shot in the target …
Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mane and Mo Salah's 2019 Role-Reversal

Sadio Mané has taken the Premier League by storm in 2019, scoring eight goals in Liverpool’s ten league games this calendar, including seven in his last five at Anfield. However, on the other hand, Liverpool’s top scorer and attacking talisman Mo Salah has slowed the scoring stakes, scoring just four goals in his last ten, firing blanks in seven of his last ten games, having failed to score in just three of his previous ten starts. So what has shifted …
Liverpool vs Bayern Second Leg Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool vs Bayern Second Leg Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool travel to the Allianz Arena with their Champions League hopes well and truly in the balance. It’s harder to imagine a fixture that could be harder to call, with just about every conceivable measuring stick suggesting that this is a 50/50 game. After the 0-0 draw at Anfield, Liverpool have the advantage of knowing they don’t need to win, a score draw will see them through, but equally, Bayern will have home advantage behind them, something Liverpool failed to …
Naby Keita: The key to a good performance against Burnley

Naby Keita: The key to a good performance against Burnley

Let's cast our minds back to a cold, dark Wednesday night at Turf Moor in December. Jürgen Klopp took his Liverpool team to take on Sean Dyche's Burnley and selected Naby Keita in central midfield for the second consecutive match after an injury lay-off had seen him reduced to watching his team mates from the side-lines. Keita had enjoyed a solid start to the season for the Reds, but injuries disrupted things for him, but he came in against Burnley …
Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

Klopp's PlayStation Midfield

You know, I’d already got this article in my brain long before I saw this tweet from Michael Caley, the brain behind Caley Graphics xG maps. Caley is a brilliant football analyst and the insight that he offers in this tweet backs up other data that I’ve seen in other places, but the simple fact is as follows. Nevertheless, before I get into some of that data, I want to outline the point of this article. Klopp has been tinkering …
