Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Who should be Roberto Firmino's understudy?

Heading into this transfer window, there was hope Liverpool would bring in a traditional centre-forward. Someone who could not only fill in for Roberto Firmino but maybe also play alongside him. A player who might’ve been able to give the Reds a bit more of a Plan B. Maybe even someone who might be the one to kickstart the next evolution of this team.  The window is still open for a while, but there are no suggestions that this is …
End of the road for Naby and Ox at Liverpool?

End of the road for Naby and Ox at Liverpool?

Well that's that for another season. Liverpool managed to salvage their campaign in impressive fashion, producing an unlikely 10-game unbeaten streak and somehow finishing third in the Premier League. From looking like Europa League football was a guarantee next season, and a return to bleak Thursday nights, Jurgen Klopp's side showed their monstrous mentality, standing tall and displaying great resilience. While positivity is now in the air, Liverpool cannot afford to rest on their laurels, with another important summer transfer …
The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

The truth behind Liverpool’s drought

Liverpool’s goal drought never really bothered me. Some went to the extreme, claiming the system had been found out and Jurgen Klopp needed to make wholesale changes to get them firing again. In truth, it was a mixture of bad luck and bad finishing. I wrote about it in detail for work.  The Reds had the chances, but they kept falling to the wrong players. Liverpool’s system and success is built on ensuring certain players get the volume required to …
Versatile Oxlade-Chamberlain Could Offer Liverpool Right-Back Solution

Versatile Oxlade-Chamberlain Could Offer Liverpool Right-Back Solution

Jurgen Klopp loves versatile players. Whether it is James Milner, who can cover midfield or either full-back slot, or Fabinho, who is comfortable at both centre half and defensive midfield, the German places great stock in players who can cover multiple positions. With a bigger list of injuries than an army hospital, Liverpool will need to rotate aplenty in the upcoming period of games and turn and to players to fill in in areas that they aren't overly familiar with. …
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

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 …
