Time To Respond, Liverpool

Time To Respond, Liverpool

Thursday's narrow defeat at the Etihad was, in many ways, the perfect depiction of football. A game primed on fine margins, Liverpool could easily have extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to ten points but for a desperate goal-line clearance. Technology would reveal the ball was within just 1.12 centimetres of crossing the line and giving the Reds the lead before a customary strike from Sergio Aguero struck at the heart of Klopp's side. Things could've …
Is it time to reconsider Jordan Henderson in a midfield two?

Is it time to reconsider Jordan Henderson in a midfield two?

The selection of Jordan Henderson in a midfield pivot has long been met with derision by Liverpool fans, but is it time to reconsider the skipper's capabilities in the position? Henderson was often the main midfield driver during his earlier years at the club, moving in from right midfield to partner Steven Gerrard in the title run of 2013/14, often described as 'doing the running for two' whilst Gerrard sat back and pinged balls around the pitch in his twilight …
Liverpool's blistering start surpasses title benchmarks

Liverpool's blistering start surpasses title benchmarks

Prior to the season beginning, I wrote an article on what Liverpool must do to win the Premier League, taking into account things such as goals scored, goals conceded, points won and European form of title winners in the past 10 years. Another thing I touched on was the first 10 games, with the idea being that title winners must get off to a decent enough start if they're to lead the pack come May. With that in mind, there's …
Mo Salah’s muted celebration smacks of ambition not of discord at Anfield

Mo Salah’s muted celebration smacks of ambition not of discord at Anfield

Mohamed Salah’s muted goal celebration on Wednesday night came as a surprise to many. The Egyptian forward’s reaction has already become a key talking point following Liverpool’s convincing 4-0 victory over Red Star Belgrade. Jürgen Klopp, calm and jovial as ever in front of the cameras, was quick to shrug off the possibility of there being anything wrong with his star forward. On the contrary, pundit and ex-AC Milan and Netherlands striker Ruud Gullit, himself a Champions League winner, believes …
Liverpool 4-0 Red Star: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-0 Red Star: Who was man of the match?

After nervously scraping past Huddersfield at the weekend, a reinvigorated Liverpool were able to turn on in the style in a convincing, thoroughly enjoyable 4-0 win against the largely helpless Red Star. The Reds were slow out of the blocks, but as soon as Roberto Firmino fired home the opener they began to ooze confidence, repeatedly slicing through their opponents with some encouragingly fluid attacking football. Mohamed Salah's brace, followed by Sadio Mane's fourth, redemption for an unconverted penalty, completed …
Why it's a good time to give Mo Salah a rest

Why it's a good time to give Mo Salah a rest

The talisman of Liverpool's season last time out has looked a little out of sorts of late. Mo Salah enjoyed a season like no other last term and notched up countless goals, assists and match-winning performances that saw him crowned player of the year. At the start of this season, he has by no means played badly at all, but something seems missing with his game, which is why, starting with the Southampton game, he could be in line for …
New long-term deal for Salah illustrates the belief in Klopp's project

New long-term deal for Salah illustrates the belief in Klopp's project

Whoever said Monday's were bad clearly didn't give Mo or Liverpool the message. The Egyptian put pen to paper on a new five year deal with the club, committing his long-term future in the process. He's now  Liverpool's highest wage earners on £200,000 a week - a salary that also sees him land in the top ten highest-earning players in the English top flight - a fitting reward for an outstanding first season on Merseyside that saw him notch 32 goals …

Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Match Review as Reds Sign Off In Style as Kiev Awaits

Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Match Review as Reds Sign Off In Style as Kiev Awaits

Jurgen Klopp was adamant attentions must be solely placed on Brighton this week, waving away the English media who were fixated on a date with destiny in Kiev. His players duly responded, signing off their Premier League campaign in perfect style as they dominated Brighton from start to finish. There were yet more individual records broken with Liverpool preserving their unbeaten record at home in the league this season; the only team to have managed such a feat in the …
Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Mohamed Salah to remain at Liverpool despite Real Madrid interest

Whenever a player emerges as one of the world’s best, they always end up being linked with the top European clubs. It’s inevitable. This season, Mohamed Salah has become one of the hottest names in world football thanks to his sensational campaign with Liverpool. Salah has only been at Anfield for one season, following his move from Italian club Roma last summer, but he settled instantly and has been arguably the best player in Europe this season. Salah’s stats speak …
