A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
Liverpool's most important win of the Klopp era

Liverpool's most important win of the Klopp era

Liverpool have excelled with Jurgen Klopp at the helm, going from mediocre top-four hopefuls to champions of the world in the space of four years. The German has not only ensured his side play some of the most eye-catching football in the club's history, but has also brought with him a winning mentality that has rubbed off on his players. When looking back at some of the most memorable victories of the Klopp era, there are a number of games …
Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

What should Liverpool do with Naby Keita?

When Liverpool beat FC Barcelona, FC Bayern and a host of Europe’s elite to secure the signature of Naby Keita it was heralded as a coup. The Guinean captain was a whirlwind in the middle third for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga and appeared to be the definition of a box-to-box midfielder. He scored goals. He made assists. He racked up tackles and interceptions at an alarming rate (4.81 during his final season in Germany), and his dribbling figures were …
Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Four wins away from Premier League glory, two points dropped all season and various records on the verge of being broken - Liverpool supporters couldn't possibly find anything to argue about, right? Oh, we can. There is something ingrained in football fans that means we can never be completely happy, always having to pick holes in something. At Liverpool, the current 'issue' is Naby Keita, who has taken on the mantle from Jordan Henderson as the most divisive midfielder at …
Player Ratings: Liverpool 3-2 West Ham

Player Ratings: Liverpool 3-2 West Ham

Liverpool move to within 12 points of the Premier League title after a hard-fought 3-2 win over West Ham at Anfield. The Reds had to dig out 3 points after falling 2-1 behind, but their quality showed in the end and it was a deserved win. Alisson - 6 Thought the shouts that he should’ve saved the Issa Diop goal were a tad harsh. Nevertheless, even if you believe he might have done better, he made up for it with …

Keita Could Be Liverpool's Midfield's Attacking Impetus

Keita Could Be Liverpool's Midfield's Attacking Impetus

Let's face it, since his big money switch from Red Bull Leipzig in the summer of 2018 Naby Keita has failed to live up to the lofty expectations placed upon him in Liverpool red. That's not to suggest the Guinean has been a bad signing, when his time with the European Champions should be assessed through the prism of the series of niggling injuries that have prevented him putting together an extended run of form. With his slaloming dribbles, effortless …
