Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

Silly season(n) 1: a period (such as late summer) when the mass media often focus on trivial or frivolous matters for lack of major news stories 2: a period marked by frivolous, outlandish, or illogical activity or behaviour. There’s been a lot of silliness. It’s roughly two months since the Champions League final. A disappointing end on the pitch to what was nearly the greatest season of all time. A near tragedy off the pitch. We didn’t quite get over the line …
Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Joel Matip Came into the team at the weekend when Virgil got injured, and started tonight as the defensive leader. The most underrated defender in the league, he is so controlled and alert nowadays. The goal was vital, and came at a critical moment. Liverpool needed a big moment, and the giant defender gave his manager what was needed …
Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

The juggernaut rolled though the Emirates and didn't stop, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino. But what were the key stats as the Reds got to within one point of Manchester City? Silence, then thunder https://twitter.com/markstatsbot/status/1504218728644313089?s=12 Not much happened in the first half. Both teams had few shots, none of which was particularly dangerous. The xG scores were 0.10 to Arsenal and 0.19 to Liverpool, a good indicator of how little action there was in both boxes. …
Konate or Matip: Who should start next to Van Dijk for Liverpool?

Konate or Matip: Who should start next to Van Dijk for Liverpool?

We as Liverpool fans are not used to having proper squad depth. It might explain why we’re always so eager to pit players against one another and declare one the winner.  We did it with Kostas Tsimikas and Andrew Robertson earlier on in the season. Instead of marvelling at the fact we had left-back cover for a player many consider to be the best in the world in their position, there seemed to be an eagerness to declare Tsimikas was …
Ibrahima Konaté & The First Team Shirt

Ibrahima Konaté & The First Team Shirt

When Jürgen Klopp became the Liverpool manager his central defenders consisted of Martin Škrtel, Mamadou Sakho, Dejan Lovren, and maybe a few more youngsters. As we enter the crunch period of this season, Liverpool possess perhaps the strongest array of central defenders in European football. When they won the Premier League two years ago, it was a Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez pairing which helped propel the Reds to their first title in 30 years. The year prior, Joël …
Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …
The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational. The teams primary playmaker is transcending the fullback position. Any manager in world football (club football anyway) would have this man over any other, and his domination of the right hand side is becoming an on going problem for the opposition. Two great assists. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 He had the …
Liverpool's Joe Gomez conundrum

Liverpool's Joe Gomez conundrum

The centre-back situation  Last season, Liverpool had no centre-backs. Now, the Reds allegedly have too many.  According to a report, albeit not the most reliable ones, Joe Gomez isn’t happy with his situation at Anfield. The 24-year-old is yet to start in the Premier League this term and the majority of his minutes have arrived in weakened teams in Carabao Cup matches.  It wasn’t that long ago he was the first choice right-sided centre-back beside Virgil Van Dijk. Injuries and …
