Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Well they did it. It’s over. Liverpool were officially labelled Premier League Champions as Man City slipped up at Chelsea, losing 2-1 and giving Liverpool a 23 point lead with seven games to go. This is the first time in my lifetime I’ve seen Liverpool win the title and for many of you it’s likely either the first of your life or the first one you’re old enough to remember. And for me, this Liverpool team is unquestionably the best …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

It is undeniable that Jurgen Klopp has built one of the best teams in Europe over the past few years. Whether it be bringing in players he has turned into superstars, or young guns that he has brought up through their youth academy, Jurgen has an eye for talent. There have been some questionable transfers, some players who just didn’t work out, but the majority of the moves that have been made have been incredible, and now that more leagues …
Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Liverpool were back in Premier League action for the first time in over three months and it was an absolutely rubbish game of football. A 0-0 draw at Goodison Park feels like a story we’ve heard before, and sadly Liverpool’s wait for the title will now extend beyond their home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they dropped points for just the third time all season. The Lovren Effect Dejan Lovren replaced the injured Joël Matip with fifteen minutes …
Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

The Premier League is well and truly back. Excitement at seeing Keita in the team, Milner picking up a needless yellow and Liverpool drawing 0-0 at Goodison Park. Almost like we never stopped, right? Admittedly not the best game ever for the neutral, Everton should have won truth be told. Still, we have an actual game of football to analyse, so let's get going with the ratings. Alisson dazzles Alisson Becker (8): If this game is played similarly three months ago, …
Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

After waiting eagerly for 106 days for Liverpool to get back into action, the Merseyside derby was in all honesty quite a languid affair. The hype far outweighed the action, as Liverpool toiled but rarely troubled Everton, who had the better chances at Goodison Park, but the spoils were shared as Merseyside welcomed back Premier League football. There were positives to take on the short trip back to Anfield; Naby Keita looked incredibly sharp and was easily Liverpool's stand-out man. …
Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

When the upcoming fixture list gets released, one of the biggest matches of the season is always Everton at Goodison Park. It is a match that carries great importance for the city and supporters of each side. As the first match back for both Liverpool and Everton since the Premier League shut down due to the coronavirus, the Merseyside Derby carried with it even more meaning this time around. As Jurgen Klopp has said, football is often the most important …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

After over 100 days without seeing the Reds in action in the Premier League, we were treated to as drab a derby as you’re ever likely to see. 0-0 was perhaps the most predictable scoreline when looking at the recent results at Goodison Park - combine that with the fact neither side has played a competitive match in three months, a scoreless draw was always very likely. Everton will perhaps feel a tad unlucky seeing as they forced a good …
Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Liverpool missed the chance to move closer to a 19th league title as they laboured to a scoreless draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The Reds owned the possession but -- shorn of the services of injury precaution rested Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson -- struggled to prize open the stubborn, deep sitting defence of the home team. The lack of fluency that a three-month break would engender on a team was evident and the visitors …
Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

Early Premier League win could help Liverpool retain it

With Premier League teams across the country leaping back on the horse to finish the 2019/20 season this week, there is much to play for. Liverpool require just six points to seal a first league title in 30 years, with teams such as Manchester United, Chelsea and Sheffield United scrapping for Champions League spots a few places below them. Further down the table, the likes of Aston Villa and Bournemouth will hope that the long-awaited 'Project Restart' will yield an …
