Main Mané: Why Sadio shouldn't be overlooked for Player of the Year

Main Mané: Why Sadio shouldn't be overlooked for Player of the Year

When Liverpool signed Sadio Mané back in 2016 for £34 million, many onlookers scoffed at the price tag. I must admit, although I didn't quite scoff, I was unsure if the Senegalese was worth the hefty investment. He looked like a promising player, but I wasn't sure if he'd have the desired impact at Anfield. Fast forward four years, and my scepticism couldn't have been more misplaced. Liverpool's number 10 started off well with a stunning debut goal against Arsenal …
Norwich 0-1 Liverpool: Tactical Breakdown

Norwich 0-1 Liverpool: Tactical Breakdown

 "It's like a free shot tomorrow because we have to deliver in the following 11 games."
The comments of Norwich City manager, Daniel Farke, epitomised what lies ahead for Liverpool FC. No team expects to beat Liverpool, but every single team craves to be the one that finally fells the mighty red behemoth. Liverpool, on a seemingly unstoppable charge towards an unprecedented flawless season. Nonetheless, amidst ghastly conditions, brought about by the menacingly destructive Storm Dennis, Liverpool travelled …
Norwich vs Liverpool Betting Preview and Prediction

Norwich vs Liverpool Betting Preview and Prediction

Liverpool will be looking to continue their relentless march towards the Premier League title when they take on Norwich City at Carrow Road on Saturday evening. The Reds have been enjoying a well-earned warm weather break following their resounding 4-0 victory over Southampton at the start of the month but they'll get back to action with a trip to East Anglia this weekend. Jurgen Klopp's side have been virtually faultless this season as the win over Southampton made it 24 victories from 25 …
Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

Four From Four - Business as Usual for Liverpool

We are four games into the Premier League season, so naturally, it’s time for an irritating international break. International breaks, of course, have their benefits: being able to focus on the Ashes, the slight increase in quality in David Squires’ cartoons, managing to go a whole weekend without having some sort of stress-induced heart attack, and for those of us that actually enjoy it, the prospect of seeing your national team play. There are some benefits for Liverpool and its …
Why Firmino Makes it all Work

Why Firmino Makes it all Work

As the dust settled on a convincing victory at one of Liverpool’s most precarious hunting grounds, and a spat between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané proliferated the post-match headlines, it was one cheeky smile and movement of the eyes that set everybody at ease. Indeed, it was also the arm of Roberto Firmino around Sadio Mané, as the latter continued his remonstrations with his manager regarding his partner in crime’s noticeable hunger for a goal, that showed Liverpool fans what …
Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

Oxlade-Chamberlain adds another dimension to Liverpool midfield

The 4-1 dismantling of Norwich City or the Super Cup triumph over Chelsea should be the highlight of the two weeks old 2019/20 campaign but the biggest positive so far arrived in the 2-1 victory against Southampton.  No, it wasn’t Sadio Mane continuing his destructive 2019 with a goal and an assist. It wasn’t Roberto Firmino opening his account for the campaign just days after coming off the bench to change the game against Frank Lampard’s side in Istanbul.  It …
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 Liverpool eleven Jurgen Klopp might go with against Norwich

The Liverpool eleven Jurgen Klopp might go with against Norwich

Liverpool get the Premier League underway against Norwich this Friday night so we take a look at the starting lineup Jurgen Klopp might select. After an impressive performance against Manchester City during last Sunday's Community Shield, Klopp has some big decisions to make around his first starting eleven of the season. In goals, Alisson will start while new signing Adrian should be the reserve 'keeper for The Reds after Simon Mignolet's departure earlier this week. Joel Matip's goalscoring substitute appearance …
Emre Can Deserves All The Inevitable Praise

Emre Can Deserves All The Inevitable Praise

Emre Can deserves this. In the following days, maybe even weeks, he’s going to be eulogized by Liverpool fans, waxing lyrical over his talents and all rushing to be the ones to claim that they always believed in him, as his spectacular bicycle kick, Liverpool’s goal of the season despite Phil Coutinho’s best efforts, gifted Liverpool a 1-0 win over Watford that puts them one big step nearer to Champions League football. And he absolutely deserves it. And it was …
