Liverpool, on a seemingly unstoppable charge towards an unprecedented flawless season.

"What a player" - Gomez praises match-winning cameo appearance from Sadio Mané

Liverpool's Sadio Mané came off the bench to keep The Reds' Premier League winning streak going at Carrow Road on Saturday evening. Daniel Farke's Norwich had provided stern opposition for the bulk of the game until Mané changed things with a brilliantly taken goal. Liverpool's number 10 had only been on the field 18 minutes before he struck the winner. Mané had not started at Norwich as he was still recovering from injury. Reds players and fans alike will be …
Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Norwich City on Saturday?

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Norwich City on Saturday?

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side travels to Carrow Road this Saturday evening where they face Norwich City in the Premier League. Daniel Farke's Canaries visited Anfield on the opening weekend of the season, losing 4-1 in a game where Alisson Becker suffered a calf injury that would keep him out for the following two months. At the moment, Klopp is without Nathaniel Clyne and Yasser Larouci. James Milner, Xherdan Shaqiri and Sadio Mané will all face late fitness tests. Alisson has …
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 …
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

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

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. …
