Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's Premier League game against Norwich was the first genuine test Jürgen Klopp's men have faced since becoming European Champions. This was the first occasion in which points were at stake, the team would be able to set a marker and display their intent for the season. The scoreline indicates a strong performance, and the side picking up from where it left off. Yet there were a number of signs that indicate both change and qualitative variance compared to last …
Adrian Given Huge Early Opportunity to Prove His Worth

Adrian Given Huge Early Opportunity to Prove His Worth

A flying start to the season, but also something to be concerned about. Liverpool are back. The Reds were scintillating at times in their demolition of Norwich, in a first half that epitomised why the Reds are one of the top two sides in Europe. This was a Canaries side who eased to Championship glory last season, scoring 21 more goals from open play than any other side. This was what the step up to the Premier League feels like, …
Jurgen Klopp is considering starting Sadio Mané against Norwich

Jurgen Klopp is considering starting Sadio Mané against Norwich

Liverpool's Sadio Mané could be picked to start against Norwich City at Anfield tonight despite only returning from his summer break earlier this week. The Reds' number 10 had a hectic summer, going all the way to the AFCON final where Senegal eventually lost to Algeria. Due to his extended international duty, Mané only returned to Melwood on Monday so his first-team training has been extremely limited. However, speaking on Thursday in his pre-match press conference, Jurgen Klopp didn't seem …

Gini Wijnaldum recognises the need for Liverpool to win from the off

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum knows that The Reds must start their Premier League season off with a win on Friday against Norwich City. For a second consecutive campaign, it looks like Jurgen Klopp's side will be the main challengers to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City title-winning team. Liverpool accumulated a record 97 points last season but still had to watch on as City lifted the title on the final day with 98 points. City managed 100 points in 2017/18 and 98 …
5 Defining Moments From the Reds' 2015/16 Premier League Season

5 Defining Moments From the Reds' 2015/16 Premier League Season

Yet another season of the Premier League has just ended with a new champion being crowned (how rare is that!) and Liverpool ending in 8th place (not so rare!). Once Liverpool changed their manager in October, it was always known that this season would not be where we would be competing at the top table and hence anything achieved would be a bonus. Like any other season there were lot of good moments and an equal share of bad moments. …
Oddities and Aggression Reignite Liverpool's Season

Oddities and Aggression Reignite Liverpool's Season

From its opening shots back in Summer 2015, this season has been one of the most unpredictable ever seen. Even now, as we roll through March, nothing is certain. Oh, unless you’re a Villa fan that is. As a supporter I’ve never experienced anything like it. I mean we’ve all seen blips in the usually predictable landscape over the years. I remember Norwich City having a spell in the sun, Blackburn Rovers as champions, Newcastle United and their Keegan influenced …
Liverpool - Hold Your Head Up High

Liverpool - Hold Your Head Up High

It’s not a great time to be a Liverpool supporter right now. The league campaign – what, for many, gives the season it’s real wings – is in danger of spiralling into a damage limitation exercise. It can be grim watching the Reds; a chronic lack of pace, a blunt object seemingly incapable of finding the net and giving us goals, the currency of joy and a huge reason we go to a game. It’s grim, make no mistake. January …
Lucas vs Norwich - Why a DM is the More Important Transfer Target

Lucas vs Norwich - Why a DM is the More Important Transfer Target

11:00 p.m. GMT, 1 February is just around the corner, and little transfer business has been done by Liverpool this year.  Marko Grujic is bought and loaned back to Red Star Belgrade while Steven Caulker, believed to be a centre-back while actually, secretly being a centre forward, is loaned in from QPR.  Yes, yes, the Alex Texiera saga rages on – some say he’s coming, others that he’s not, and still others with more twisted, vague theories about the issue. …
Wild Celebration and Wembley Qualification...

Wild Celebration and Wembley Qualification...

But let's not get carried away! Just four days after the dramatic stoppage-time victory at Carrow Road, Liverpool qualified for the Capital One Cup final on Tuesday night thanks to the perhaps unexpected heroics of Simon Mignolet in the penalty shoot-out. Not only are we on our way to ‘Anfield South’ once more, but those three points against Norwich were crucial in the pursuit of a top four finish, especially after the ‘Old Enemy’ left Merseyside with the spoils in …
