Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino could be even better this season

Roberto Firmino has started the season like he means business. It isn’t something Liverpool fans are used to with the Brazilian usually looking off the pace when he returns to pre-season after a summer break.  It’s by no means comparable to a Sunday League player trotting round the pitch after a heavy Saturday night but it’s safe to say Firmino tends to enjoy his summer breaks. He picks up the pace after a few weeks but fans have got used …
Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Despite being European champions, Liverpool have a squad full of divisive players. Some are undervalued and some are simply misunderstood. There are a number who tick both boxes and one such player is Fabinho.  The Brazilian doesn’t score goals. He doesn’t assist them either. He doesn’t play 70-yard crossfield passes that are shown on the Match of the Day highlight reel and he’s not the sort to dance past four opposition players before picking out a team-mate. The former Monaco …
The confusing rhetoric around Liverpool's stature

The confusing rhetoric around Liverpool's stature

So the new Premier League season is almost a week old already and, if I'm being honest, I've got my first moan to have out with the world. To say that things got off to a perfect start for Liverpool would be a little bit of a stretch - as losing Alisson Becker to a freak calf injury on Friday's 4-1 win over Norwich cast somewhat of a shadow over the victory. But that aside, it was pretty plain sailing …
Key stats as Liverpool narrowly miss out on Community Shield

Key stats as Liverpool narrowly miss out on Community Shield

A combination of wastefulness and outright misfortune denied Liverpool the early boost of Community Shield success, but still, they could take heart from their impressive performance against their biggest title rivals. Here are the key stats from the season's curtain-raiser: Liverpool the better side City edged the first-half but Liverpool controlled the second, and ultimately the numbers suggest they were slightly lucky to claim the silverware. The Reds enjoyed more possession (53%-47%) and played more passes (555-496) than their opponents …
Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Pre Season Selections Give Hints To Pecking Order

Liverpool continued their lacklustre pre-season with a 3-0 defeat to Napoli at the home of Scottish Rugby, Murrayfield, yesterday. The performance, as had been the case in the previous three games on the summer tour of the United States -- against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting CP -- was poor, as the Reds looked disjointed in both attack and defence. The European Champions depart for Evian, France for a training camp this Monday, and manager Jurgen Klopp has promised that …
Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Lessons Learned From Liverpool FC's American Tour

Liverpool completed their pre-season tour of The United States with a 2-2 draw against Sporting CP in Yankee Stadium, New York in the early hours of Thursday morning. The draw was the Reds' third game of their tour, and the first game they didn't taste defeat in after falling to Borussia Dortmund in Indiana and Sevilla in Boston's Fenway Park. As was the case in European Champions' previous off-season jaunts across The Atlantic, the tour can be considered a commercial …
Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

Liverpool's wonderkid approach will lead to success

It seems to the case every single year now but this summer transfer window had the potential to be the biggest in the clubs history. With Liverpool just needing to make subtle tweaks to a squad that amassed 97 points and a sixth European Cup, it was, on paper at least, a much easier task than in years gone by.  The Reds didn’t need a £60million-rated goalkeeper being courted by many of Europe’s elite. They didn’t need to part with …
Clarity The Key for Origi

Clarity The Key for Origi

After weeks of conjecture, Divock Origi recently penned a contract that will see the Belgian remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Origi, who scored twice in Liverpool’s Champions League semi-final victory over Barcelona and the sealing goal in the Reds’ Champions League final victory over Spurs, had been linked with, among others, Real Betis. The former Lille academy product began the season well off the first team, barely even making matchday squads ahead of the likes of Daniel Sturridge. …
Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores again as Egypt advance in AFCON

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah scores again as Egypt advance in AFCON

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah made it two goals in two games as he helped Egypt to top Group A of the AFCON with a 100% record. The Reds' number 11 scored an excellent free-kick to open the scoring against Uganda in the 36th minute. Egypt went on to win 2-0 and qualify for the last sixteen of the AFCON with the maximum possible 9 points.
