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 …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

Jurgen Klopp’s Best Transfers

It is undeniable that Jurgen Klopp has built one of the best teams in Europe over the past few years. Whether it be bringing in players he has turned into superstars, or young guns that he has brought up through their youth academy, Jurgen has an eye for talent. There have been some questionable transfers, some players who just didn’t work out, but the majority of the moves that have been made have been incredible, and now that more leagues …
Oxlade Chamberlain Could Give Liverpool Derby Edge

Oxlade Chamberlain Could Give Liverpool Derby Edge

Liverpool will reacquaint themselves with familiar adversaries when they reconvene their postponed Premier League season on Sunday evening. The title-chasing Reds face off against Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park, knowing that a win will either -- depending on how Arsenal fare when they face Manchester City away on Wednesday night -- put them within touching distance of a 19th English top-flight triumph or -- should the Gunners eke out a surprise victory at the Etihad -- seal …

Liverpool midfielder speaks about the psychological challenge Reds faced after last season's disappointment

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain described the huge mental challenge faced by him and the rest of the Liverpool squad after reaching 97 points yet still finishing second last season. In the 2018/19 campaign, Jürgen Klopp's Reds achieved the highest points total in the club's history. However, Manchester City went one point better, winning the league on 98. Speaking on a call with Premier League Productions this week, Oxlade-Chamberlain discussed the disappointment of last season and how it impacted Liverpool's approach to the …
Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool move to within 9 points of the Premier League title after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Once again, it wasn’t the most convincing of victories, with the referee and VAR conspiring to award Bournemouth a controversial opening goal. The Mentality Monsters returned, though, turning the game on its head to come away with all three points. In goal, Adrian replaced the injured Alisson and the Spaniard had to put his mistake at Chelsea quickly out of his …
Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield in the early kickoff to go to within three wins of the Premier League title, after goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Callum Wilson's early goal for the Cherries was nothing but a little blip on the road. The Reds were well below-par, though, and need to be much better on Wednesday night when Atletico Madrid come to Anfield, in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. Here's how each …
Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool came from a goal behind to register their first win in three games in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield. Callum Wilson gave the relegation threatened visitors the lead in controversial style, when the striker clearly pushed Joe Gomez in the back in the build up to his goal, with VAR inexplicably allowing the effort to stand. However, goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the Reds the win, despite a nervy and slack …
Disciplined Oxlade-Chamberlain Hints At Future Liverpool Tactics

Disciplined Oxlade-Chamberlain Hints At Future Liverpool Tactics

When you think of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Liverpool, the word power quickly comes to mind. Formerly a winger, the English international -- after a couple of months settling into the demands of a Jurgen Klopp midfield -- made a big impact with the Reds in the opening months of 2018. Manchester City at home in the Champions League quarter final of 2018 was a brilliant exhibition of Oxlade-Chamberlain's skillset, fully highlighting his mix of powerful athleticism and technical refinement. An …
Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie. The Alpine Messi has been hampered by a niggling injury to one of those enormous calves of his and has barely featured this season for Klopp's …
