Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …
Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi: The end of a unique LFC career?

Divock Origi's time at Liverpool looks to be coming to an end, following an Anfield career that has seen a mix of unforgettable highs, infuriating lows and plenty in between. The Belgian continues to be linked with a move away before the transfer window closes early next month, as Jurgen Klopp aims to get rid of dead wood in his squad. Brighton are reportedly the latest club tipped to acquire his signature - an ideal next step for Origi, allowing …
Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Potential Solutions To Fill The Origi Role

Divock Origi is a strange case. The Belgian forward has cemented himself into Liverpool club folklore with his contributions in last season's victorious Champions League campaign. The 25-year old scored a brace in the Reds' miraculous 4-0 second leg semi-final tie against Barcelona, sealing their passage to a second consecutive European Cup final. Then, in the showpiece itself, Origi smashed a low left-footed drive past Hugo Lloris to put the final nail in Tottenham's coffin, rubberstamping a 2-0 win which …

The remarkable rise of Liverpool's pre-Klopp Fab Five

Jurgen Klopp is approaching five years as Liverpool manager, which is a frightening sentence to type. Where on earth did the time go? At this point in 2015, Brendan Rodgers was in his final pre-season at Anfield and the Reds were looking to bounce back from the humiliation of a 6-1 defeat away to Stoke. Little did we know at the time, FSG were flirting with Jurgen Klopp during his post-Borussia Dortmund breather, with Rodgers' time all but up. In …
Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

Exciting Times To Be A Red - Drink It In

The date is Tuesday, 1st May, 1990. Liverpool have beaten Arthur Cox's Derby County 1-0 at Anfield. Having already wrapped up the league title a week prior following a 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers, the Anfield faithful were preparing to witness Steve McMahon lift the trophy up in the air - for the nineteenth time. Such was the bar that Kenny Dalglish's relentless Reds set throughout their heyday in the 1970s and 1980s, winning First Division Championships were no …

Key Stats As Liverpool See Off Newcastle To Hit 99

Liverpool secured their record-levelling 32nd league win of the season to move to 99 points with a lacklustre but well-earned 3-1 win over Newcastle at St James’ Park. But what were the key stats from the game? Clinical Reds Finish With a Flourish Having scored five goals from two big chances against Chelsea, Liverpool scored three goals without creating a big chance against Newcastle. Outstanding finishes from Divock Origi and Sadio Mané completed the comeback after Virgil Van Dijk’s headed …
Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

Time for Brewster to Oust Ineffective Origi

On Thursday night, two Liverpool strikers suffered very different fortunes. It was an evening to forget for the Reds, whose lack of intensity and focus was plain to see in a rather insipid defeat to Arsenal at the Emirates. As a last throw of the dice in the second half, Jurgen Klopp turned to Divock Origi as one of his substitutes, looking for another moment of inspiration from the Belgian. What occurred was a cameo that has become far too …
Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool: Observations from an inexplicable defeat

Arsenal 2-1 Liverpool: Observations from an inexplicable defeat

Liverpool have cruised to the Premier League title with such a blissful ease this season that rival fans will see this immensely frustrating run of games as just deserts. On Saturday, the overly-merciful Reds were the victims of a vintage smash-and-grab. Here, they served up victory to a rotated Arsenal side on a silver platter. It's now two wins and two defeats in the five games since they became champions. Liverpool lose without playing badly... again It would be outrageous …
Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
A year since Madrid for Klopp's Liverpool

A year since Madrid for Klopp's Liverpool

It’s been just over a year since Liverpool lifted their sixth Champions League title in Madrid. And it’s fair to say that it’s been an absolutely unbelievable year in a number of respects. On the field, Liverpool have all but secured their first Premier League title, ending the 30-year drought for the big one. But off the field, tragedy has struck the entire world, and caused untold misery and death across the entire planet. I don’t want to focus too …
