Why Liverpool Fans Need To Kabak Ozan

Why Liverpool Fans Need To Kabak Ozan

Let's call a spade a spade: Ozan Kabak's opening two appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool have been nothing short of disastrous. In his debut, the Reds ruined a good performance and a 1-0 lead going into the final minutes of the game and eventually lost 3-1 to Leicester City, a defeat that could have big ramifications on the race for Champions League football.  The Turk was at fault for at least two goals. First, he got his communicational …
Liverpool 0-2 Everton: What went wrong in first derby defeat for 11 years?

Liverpool 0-2 Everton: What went wrong in first derby defeat for 11 years?

Nothing lasts forever. It had been 22 years since Everton had won at Anfield. I was less than a month old. And of course it was going to be this season, this god-forsaken, gut-punch season, that the Blues' drought came to an end. Liverpool fans were united in their incandescence when a quite unfathomable penalty decision enabled Everton to double their lead. But that is merely a cathartic cloak for undeniable despair. Jurgen Klopp's side remains in the Champions League. …

"With time, I will be better" - Liverpool defender expects to build on solid Champions League performance

Liverpool defender Ozan Kabak believes his performance in The Reds' 2-0 win over RB Leipzig was only the beginning as far as his career on Merseyside is concerned. Kabak put in a solid performance at centre-half alongside captain Jordan Henderson as Jürgen Klopp's men kept their first clean sheet in 8 games. The win puts Liverpool firmly in the driving seat ahead of the return leg - which may not be played at Anfield due to COVID travel restrictions - …
Liverpool Show Their Wings With Victory Over RB Leipzig

Liverpool Show Their Wings With Victory Over RB Leipzig

Liverpool took a big step towards Champions League quarter-final qualification with a 2-0 victory against Red Bull Leipzig in Budapest. Goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah gave the nominal away team the victory with a performance of control and defensive solidity. Jordan Henderson and Ozan Kabak were once again paired in the heart of the Reds defence, but there weren't the errors that defined the recent Leicester City defeat and Jurgen Klopp is sure to be proud of his …
Leicester 3-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as fragile Reds unravel

Leicester 3-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as fragile Reds unravel

Mohamed Salah's glorious finish following Roberto Firmino's ingenious assist had set Liverpool on course for an impressive and important victory. But then they imploded in gut-wrenching fashion. It's a defeat that both reflects and deepens the profound crisis of confidence in the defending champions' ranks. They are in freefall, their season growing inconceivably more wretched by the week. Fans are becoming desperate for it to end, but fearful of where it might end. Here, if you can stomach reliving it, …
Luckless Liverpool Fall To Leicester Defeat

Luckless Liverpool Fall To Leicester Defeat

Liverpool took a heavy blow to their top-four qualification prospects with a 3-1 defeat to Leicester City at The Kingpower Stadium. Things were appearing to go swimmingly for the Reds when Mohamed Salah gave them a merited lead in the middle of the second half after a brilliant Roberto Firmino assist. However, as has constantly been the case this season, injury and abysmal refereeing decisions hampered the defending champions. Leicester equalized from a James Maddison free-kick with ten minutes remaining, …
Anfield auditions for Kabak and Davies must start now for move to make sense

Anfield auditions for Kabak and Davies must start now for move to make sense

Another day, another injury concern. It all feels a bit like groundhog day for Liverpool and seeing players on the treatment table this season. Jurgen Klopp today announced that Fabinho will be sidelined for the upcoming trip to Leicester with a small muscle issue. This leaves Liverpool with none of their 'recognised' centre back options from the start of the season left fit for the trip to the King Power. I say this with no disrespect intended towards Nat Phillips …
Ozan Kabak: More Joel Matip than Dejan Lovren

Ozan Kabak: More Joel Matip than Dejan Lovren

Ozan Kabak shares a number of similarities with Dejan Lovren. He also has traits that are comparable to Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk. It’s be expected though, given Liverpool have a clear profile when it comes to defenders.  I realise it is difficult to do, but if you look past Lovren’s erratic moments, his profile was perfect for Liverpool. He was physically dominant, both on the ground and in the air, he could pick a pass and he was …
Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

Liverpool signing Ben Davies appears well-suited to “quarterback” role

After days of nothingness mainly made up of endless scrolling through Liverpool Twitter (presumably), Michael Edwards was evidently moved enough by fans’ pleas to leap into action with deadline day looming. With fears the team’s season was slipping further away with every new injury at the back and its knock-on effects through the rest of the team, Liverpool have signed Preston North End defender Ben Davies as part of their attempts to fill their once-gaping void at the centre-back position.  …
Liverpool's Transfer Deadline Day

Liverpool's Transfer Deadline Day

Liverpool's Michael Edwards had quite a busy transfer deadline day on Monday. Let's take a look at The Reds' deals on the day. During Sunday's 3-1 win at West Ham, the story broke that Liverpool were closing in on a deal for Preston North End's Ben Davies. The 25-year-old left-sided centre-half was a target for Celtic and it's rumoured that the Scottish club was hoping to bring Davies north of the border. The Davies deal sees Liverpool youngster Sepp van …
