Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Last week, this writer published a piece exploring how it is practically impossible to upgrade on this Liverpool team. Which, obviously, would make this piece seem slightly obtuse: why should the Reds pursue a very expensive winger if it won’t actually upgrade them? Well, despite currently being un-upgradeable: the best team in the world, reigning champions of Europe and the world, not to mention champions elect of England, there is always a way forward in football. Standing still, even when …
Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool’s march towards a highly anticipated first Premier League title seemed to take a significant step on Sunday evening when they defeated old rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield.  The win saw the Reds extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 16 points but it didn’t come as so usually seen at Anfield these days. Jurgen Klopp’s men created the best chances of the game against a depleted United side but the scoreline remained on a …

"A special player" - Joe Gomez heaps praise on Liverpool teammate after victory over United

Liverpool's young centre-back Joe Gomez says he was "buzzing" for Virgil van Dijk after the Reds defender scored and helped his side to a clean sheet in the win over Manchester United on Sunday. Van Dijk soared above the United defence to head home a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner, giving Liverpool an early lead in the game. The Reds' number 4 was then commanding in defence when the visitors began to push for an equaliser late in the second half. Mohamed …
The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

People are going out of their way to not credit Liverpool for their ridiculous season to date. As things stand, VAR has been used as a reason the Reds find themselves 14 points clear with a game in hand. Rival fans have also claimed Jurgen Klopp has been lucky, with the table-toppers avoiding serious injuries, apparently. The latest narrative is that the European champions have few world-class players and that the majority of those being praised are only impressing because …
Does Rashford get into the Liverpool XI?

Does Rashford get into the Liverpool XI?

We’re in 2020 yet people are still judging players on goals scored.  Heading into Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United, the big talking point centred around whether or not Marcus Rashford would get into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI. As outlandish as it sounds, some genuinely believed that to be the case. Their argument was based around the fact the United No.10 had more goals to his name than any of the starting trio the Reds, and that on current form he’d …
Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven against Manchester United on Sunday?

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven against Manchester United on Sunday?

Liverpool and Manchester United face-off at Anfield this Sunday evening in the Premier League. We've had a look at Liverpool's likely lineup for this huge game. Three senior players returned to full training at Melwood this week for The Reds so Jurgen Klopp will be delighted that his first-team squad is returning to full strength. Those players were Fabinho, Joel Matip and Dejan Lovren. Such has been Joe Gomez's impressive form in central defence, it's unlikely he will lose his …
Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Liverpool Make World-Class Stars

Jamie Carragher is right, Liverpool don’t tend to buy superstars. Speaking after the 1-0 win over Spurs, the former Reds centre-back heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield.  "It's not that Liverpool are just buying players with this special ability that nobody else sees these players," Carragher told Sky Sports. "[Andy] Robertson came from Hull City, [Gini] Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle United, Mohamed Salah had been at Chelsea, Sadio Mane had been in the Premier …
Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Does Robertson Need To Rein It In?

Something changed the night Liverpool lost to Real Madrid in the 2018 Champions League final. At that point, the Reds were still seen as plucky underdogs - a team who played fantastic football and were as entertaining as anyone, both for good and bad. Unless you were a rival supporter, they were easy to like, and it will have been hard not to feel some level of sympathy for them after their nightmare in Kiev. That defeat hurt and Liverpool …
