Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …
Late Goal Loving Liverpool Win It Late Again

Late Goal Loving Liverpool Win It Late Again

Two late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane kept Liverpool's six point lead at the top of the Premier League table intact with a 2-1 win away to Aston Villa. The table toppers had trailed to a Trezeguet goal, but once again rescued the deserved three points late on in a display of patience and resolute character. From the outside, it was clear that the hosts would attempt to attack their illustrious guests and they had a chance almost …
Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Who Was Man of the Match?

At least we’re all getting used to having to endure a nervy final 10 minutes now, right? No, me neither. It should never have had to be this way as we deserved to be out of sight with the amount of chances we created. Sadly, too many of our efforts were straight at their goalkeeper. Nevertheless, it was a very good win after going behind so early and keeps us 6 points clear at the top of the Premier League. …
Why Mo Salah Will Take Centre-Stage For Liverpool

Why Mo Salah Will Take Centre-Stage For Liverpool

Sadio Mané and Mo Salah have both been making headlines this season for Liverpool. And rightly so. Mané has scored nine goals with one assist in all competitions, whilst Mo has seven goals and four assists. Both players have also this week been nominated for the Ballon D’Or along with four other Liverpool players (Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino). But there’s also been talk of a bit of friction between the two, although that’s mostly just …
Observations as Liverpool prove too good for Genk

Observations as Liverpool prove too good for Genk

The performance wasn't perfect, but the result certainly wasn't far off. Liverpool exposed the gulf class in a commanding victory which leaves them well-placed to continue their title defence into the knockout stages. Stephen Odey's 88th-minute clean sheet buster proved the only blemish after thirty dazzling second-half minutes. Revamped midfield showcases its potential Scores of Liverpool fans on social media greeted the evening's team news with immense excitement after Jurgen Klopp deployed Fabinho, Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain and Naby Keita for their …
Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

On Sunday afternoon, perhaps the worst United side in living memory lined up against arguably the best Liverpool side in living memory, and most certainly the best side in the Premier League era. With Mohamed Salah unavailable through injury, Sadio Mané was positioned on the right of Liverpool’s 4-3-3, and Divock Origi on the left. Conceptually, even without Salah, these two forwards were supposed to operate inside United’s wingbacks, and attack the spaces outside of the centre-backs. From this, it …
Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

Four wonderful years of Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool

People often say that you remember exactly where you were when huge moments in history occurred. I'll never forget hearing about the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center on the bus home from school, for example, or seeing a kids TV show interrupted in order to inform me of the death of Princess Diana. I must immediately stress that I don't put the arrival of a Liverpool manager on a par with those events mentioned above, in terms of …
Liverpool Survive Scare in Anfield Goal Bonanza

Liverpool Survive Scare in Anfield Goal Bonanza

A Mohamed Salah brace and goals from Sadio Mané and Andrew Robertson saw Liverpool clinch a 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg in an Anfield goal bonanza. The defending champions raced into a three goal lead, thanks to goals from Mane, Robertson and Salah. But the Jesse Marsch coached Austrian side managed to claw the game back to 3-3 through goals from Hwang Hee Chan, Takumi Minamino and substitute Erling Haland. Salah broke the visitors hearts late on, however, with …
Klopp's Still Got an Ace Up his Sleeve

Klopp's Still Got an Ace Up his Sleeve

It’s cliché to say it. It really is. “Player (x) returning from injury, he’s practically a new signing!” It’s tired, it’s worn out, it’s ostensibly untrue and it’s essentially trying to justify, rightly or wrongly, inactivity. Yet, it sort of does feel like Naby Keita is a whole new signing. Not in the conventional sense, because Liverpool fans have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Naby Keita for a long, long time. Since he was first announced – a season …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
