Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 3-0 Leicester

With injuries aplenty following the international break and a deluge of fixtures awaiting Jürgen Klopp's red men, an acceptable result seemed more important than a strong performance. With Salah, Alexander-Arnold and Thiago all unavailable, the champions were without their three best creative players, leaving the creative burden upon a midfield and forward line that has had little time to develop the sort of relationships required to pick apart a defence. Likewise, Leicester was without Ndidi - their most important midfield …

"It's just unbelievable" - Liverpool star delights in new Anfield record for Reds

Liverpool's Fabinho is delighted to be a "part of history" at the club after helping The Reds to create a new longest unbeaten league record at Anfield. The Reds' Brazil international midfielder has proved to be one of Jürgen Klopp's most important players at the club since his arrival from Monaco in 2018. He was allowed significant time to bed in and learn the Liverpool system but, following his introduction to the first team, Fabinho has never looked back. This …

Liverpool 3-0 Leicester: Player ratings as Reds make more history

Liverpool have extended their home unbeaten run into club-record territory following a hugely impressive victory against high-flying Leicester. Without Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah, the three-and-a-half-year streak was in serious peril. But the Reds scoffed at that suggestion, powering to victory with strikes from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino after a Jonny Evans own goal. Here's how they rated. Alisson - 7/10 A second Premier League clean sheet is welcome for …

Liverpool welcome league leaders Leicester City to Anfield this Sunday evening in what should be an enthralling Premier League clash.

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

Will Rodgers prevent Liverpool setting all-time unbeaten home record?

April 23rd, 2017. Liverpool 1-2 Crystal Palace. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn't it? At that point, Jurgen Klopp was still only in his first full season as Reds manager and his side hadn't yet played in the Champions League under him. This was still a year before the agony of Kiev, let alone the glorious triumph in Madrid and the Premier League title that followed, and Mo Salah, Andy Robertson, Virgil van Dijk and Alisson weren't yet Liverpool players, …
Priceless Matip faces career-defining period at Liverpool

Priceless Matip faces career-defining period at Liverpool

When it rains, it pours. Or in Liverpool's case, when it rains, a monsoon arrives. The Reds find themselves in one of the most bleak, unfortunate injury situations in their recent history, following an awful period in the fitness department. When Virgil van Dijk was ruled out for the season with cruciate ligament damage it felt bad enough, but in the weeks since, things have got even worse for Jurgen Klopp. Having to make do without the likes of Thiago, …

Liverpool's New Tactical Shape Offers Opportunity To Lesser Seen Squad Members

Jurgen Klopp sprung a surprise in Liverpool's recent 1-1 draw against Manchester City at The Etihad. After Diogo Jota scored a hat-trick against Atalanta in the Champions League a few days prior to the clash with Pep Guardiola's team, speculation was rife that Klopp may drop Roberto Firmino, one of his key lieutenants, and retain Jota in the starting team. As it turned out, though, the German picked both Firmino and the Reds' new signing from Wolves as the Champions …
Tactical Breakdown: Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

As I have grown up, I have witnessed titanic clashes between footballing behemoths. Games for which the world would stand still for 90 minutes in order to witness the spectacle. In the early noughties, it was Arsenal and Manchester United; then Chelsea and United; Liverpool and Ferguson's side followed briefly, before the rise of Pep Guardiola's Barcelona precipitated a new dimension to El Clasico, now a monumental clash between the world's two finest teams. Matches between Klopp's Borussia Dortmund and …

Jürgen Klopp says he is happy with how Liverpool defended at the Etihad

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp says how his team defended against Manchester City "was really good". The Reds earned a 1-1 draw away to Pep Guardiola's side after Mohamed Salah gave them the lead through an early penalty. Gabriel Jesus then equalised for City before Kevin De Bruyne missed a penalty shortly before half time. The result leaves Liverpool third in the table, one point behind leaders Leicester City and five points ahead of Manchester City who are all the way …
