Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

It was only a few days ago that Liverpool fans bore witness to another one of Jürgen Klopp’s most repeated sentiments – “I don’t need to spend anything, I’ve got all that I need.”
“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever. "The best way to do it is bring together a group of players, try …

Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Liverpool romped to a 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-final stages, the fourth English club to achieve such a feat. Having struggled to recreate the kind of form witnessed in Europe last season, this was a return to the best of the best, with Jurgen Klopp's side fending off another European heavyweight with relative ease. Cunning on the counter-attack and defensively solid, there were few holes to a performance that will …
Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

In the days leading up to the match, all of the talk was about Naby Keita’s lack of playing time and then his reported injury. Then the line-up card came out and it was lacking the other midfield addition, sending Liverpool supporters into meltdown. Even the captain was upset that he got picked ahead of Fabinho, apparently. With a Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum midfield everyone expected us to come out pressing our arse off, but a collision with that colossus, James …
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 …

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …

Key Stats As Liverpool Keep The Pressure On Against Burnley

Liverpool saw off a poor but spirited Burnley side thanks to doubles from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. But what were the key stats from a pulsating 4-2 win on Sunday lunchtime at Anfield? Sadio Strikes Again If it seems like I’m doing a section on Sadio Mané every single week, but he’s very quickly become Liverpool’s most influential and important attacker. With Mo now one goal in eight and Bobby one in nine before this game, Sadio has been …
Liverpool's double brace bests Burnley

Liverpool's double brace bests Burnley

As the early kickoff time neared, Reds supporters were concerned about two things, that dastardly wind our manager keeps going on about and the refs who seem by their recent actions to be party to Manchester City's slush fund bonanza. We'll come on to those refs in a bit, but when the line-up card came out, that was all that Liverpool fans could talk about. Adam Lallana. Adam Lallana? Adam Lallana! The player who perplexed us all with his late …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

A goalless draw at Old Trafford last weekend meant Liverpool's once-comfortable lead at the top of the Premier League table had been whittled down to nothing. They no longer had any margin for error. But it was a case of mistakes aplenty in the Merseyside Derby, and now the title race is out of their hands. The Reds preserved their 17th clean sheet with relative ease, but paid for a lack of creativity and, most of all, composure. In truth, …
Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool’s grip on the Premier League title loosened again, as their fourth draw in six league games saw them slip behind Manchester City in the table with nine games left to play after another insipid performance saw them draw 0-0 with Everton at Goodison Park. Klopp’s side controlled the first half, with the midfield selection of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson designed to do just that. But for all of the control, there was very little cutting edge, and when Liverpool …
