How Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can replace James Milner at Liverpool

How Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain can replace James Milner at Liverpool

By no means are Liverpool in limbo but there is a lot of uncertainty over the future of a number of players currently on their books.  The media focus has, rightly, been on Mohamed Salah.  The two-time Golden Boot winner - who could well make it three this season - is out of contract once the 2022/23 campaign comes to an end. According to reports, he wants to extend his stay on Merseyside and the club are eager for him …
The Curious Case of James Milner

The Curious Case of James Milner

In the past few days, we have seen reports of James Milner signing a new one-year contract at Liverpool Football Club. At 36 years of age, he has become a trusted lieutenant to reds boss Jürgen Klopp, within his elite group of players. The minutes have diminished, the ability has been on the wane for sometime, but the trust in which Jürgen has placed in some of his senior players appears equally as important as on-pitch value alone. There is …

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 …
Can Jordan Henderson replace James Milner as Liverpool's utility man?

Can Jordan Henderson replace James Milner as Liverpool's utility man?

Jordan Henderson has and always will be a divisive subject amongst Liverpool fans. You have some who won’t hear a bad word said against him and simply refuse to acknowledge when he has a game to forget. You then have those who are the complete opposite and will find a negative in every single one of his performances. They will go out of their way to find a way to scapegoat him.  However, I’ve noticed both sides in agreement - …
Why James Milner started against Chelsea

Why James Milner started against Chelsea

There is a misconception that if a player starts ahead of someone else, they are the better one. In reality, they are usually just viewed as the better fit for that game by the manager. Football these days is not a one size fits all sort of thing. It really is a squad game and that is why so many teams spend ridiculous amounts of money adding depth.  This has been a topic of debate on Liverpool Twitter following the …
What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

Naby Keita was supposed to be a game-changer for Liverpool. Courted by many of Europe’s elite after an eye-catching debut campaign with RB Leipzig, it was viewed as a coup when the Reds managed to strike a deal with the Bundesliga side to secure his signature. The agreement saw the midfield dynamo remain in Germany for another year. It was a necessary evil to ensure the club beat out interest from Bayern Munich and Barcelona.  However, that extra year in …
A Bastion Of Invincibility

A Bastion Of Invincibility

To look at the current season so far, it’s had far more highs than lows. The quality of the team has often blown opposition sides away, yet still issues are apparent within the group. The Christmas period descended into league wide chaos, and the reds enter the new year with a variety of questions to answer. As news filters of a potential bid for Borussia Mönchengladbach’s Denis Zakaria, it could be that the much needed Gini Wijnaldum replacement is finally …
A Must Win Midfield

A Must Win Midfield

Manchester City will inevitably win this season's Premier League title, but Liverpool and Chelsea will certainly look to push as long and hard as they can, in the hope of an Etihad slip. This weekend represents the biggest game of Liverpool’s season, and one after such a disappointing midweek showing. The away loss to Leicester was just about the most frustrating game imaginable, with an opportunity to gain momentum into the new year, simply lost. The reds appeared overconfident, and …

Liverpool 4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Some important stops allowed Liverpool to avoid any issues. The most important goalkeeper in Liverpool’s Premier League era, and irreplaceable in this side. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 So impressive in his game. The elegance and natural ability he has is unmatched by any other attacking fullback. Another assist for this sensational talent, and we could be about to see him become consistently world class Andy Robertson - 9.0 There were signs against Porto (as a …
The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

The Reds' Midfield Going Forward

Standards have now become so high that any dropped points can lead to dismay within the Liverpool fanbase. After a draw at home to Brighton, and a loss to West Ham, Liverpool head into this weekend with a clear need to improve. The international window has (as always) brought back an array of injury concerns. The provisional team will almost pick itself, yet the indications of the starting line up are still encouraging. As Andy Robertson joins the injury list, …
