Oxlade-Chamberlain return to provide perfect boost for the run-in

Oxlade-Chamberlain return to provide perfect boost for the run-in

Jurgen Klopp’s recent confirmation that Oxlade-Chamberlain is ahead of schedule in his return from injury following a knee ligament injury that threatened to derail all chances of featuring during the 2018/19 campaign is, in many ways, the perfect gift anyone could’ve asked for going into the New Year. Anyone who watched Liverpool with any interest last season will know just how big a boost his return will be, with the 25-year-old in line for a return in late February or …

Midfield Conundrum No More, For Liverpool

Midfield Conundrum No More, For Liverpool

Much of the debate surrounding Liverpool during the early stages of the season fixated on the midfield picture. Why was it not clicking? Why were the players bereft of any drive? Where was the ingenuity and freneticism of last season? For all the depth in the middle of the park, no-one could offer what Oxlade-Chamberlain brought in the business end of the 2017/18 campaign. The former-Arsenal man was a key factor in breaking into the final third, particularly against Manchester …
Oxlade-Chamberlain - Liverpool's Mr. Irreplaceable

Oxlade-Chamberlain - Liverpool's Mr. Irreplaceable

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s arrival at Anfield on deadline day of the 2017 summer window kind of went under the radar. In any other window, a £40million signing from a rival club would’ve been huge news. A statement of intent. But with reports the day prior hinting at a £200million war chest, many fans had expected to see Virgil van Dijk and Thomas Lemar make their long-awaited moves to Merseyside. Oxlade-Chamberlain’s arrival, in the nicest way possible, felt insignificant. The England international …

Patience - Naby Keita Will Be Worth The Wait

Patience - Naby Keita Will Be Worth The Wait

Twice in two pre-match interviews, Jürgen Klopp spoke about Naby Keita and reinforced the idea that he sees Keita as a long-term project, and a player who has a fantastic future at Liverpool. The positive side of that is, of course, Klopp remains invested in Keita as a player – which is to be expected given how long he spent chasing the player and how much money was spent on him. The negative side of that is of course that …
Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

With Liverpool cruising to a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, Jurgen Klopp maintained the 2 point deficit to Man City. Another clean sheet and a highly satisfying win, albeit with a dogged rather than spectacular performance. There's a certain symmetry to our away results against Watford since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers. From the pitiful 3-0 reverse in his first season, to a thrilling 3-3 draw last season which pointed to our underlying defensive deficiencies. To then …
Xherdan Shaqiri: £13 million of ever-growing importance

Xherdan Shaqiri: £13 million of ever-growing importance

When Liverpool secured the services of 'The Alpine Messi', Xherdan Shaqiri, during the summer transfer window, his arrival on Merseyside was greeted with a mixture of scepticism and optimism. A player who has been a bit of nearly man for the duration of his career after spells with Bayern Munich and Inter Milan, before establishing himself as a Premier League talent at Stoke, Shaqiri arrived at Anfield with a lot of promise and potential on his extraordinarily broad shoulders. However, …
