Liverpool v Brighton - Give ‘Em Hell

Liverpool v Brighton - Give ‘Em Hell

Liverpool Football Club return to action this weekend, with Premier League high flyers Brighton set to visit Anfield on Saturday afternoon. In such a short period of time, Liverpool have experienced pretty much every emotion possible within the football realm. This weekend represents a much-needed restart, that can carry them forward towards the next international slot, and World Cup break. The month of October needs to be close to perfect, and Klopp will be hoping some returning pieces can help …
How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

Steven Gerrard & Luis Suárez are Liverpool’s most notable legends of the recent past, and were players that were often relied upon to propel their respective team to greatness. Though Luis actually played with Stevie for the entirety of the Uruguayan's Anfield stay, Gerrard was at that point far from the powerhouse he once was. Luis became the talisman of his era, and nearly gifted Stevie the ultimate prize of Premier League glory. Gus Poyet once remarked how Liverpool would …
Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Six games in, and the Liverpool progress has been at best irregular. With a summer transfer window posing as many questions as answers, it has become a worried fanbase very quickly. When we lost to Man United, that was a low that was quickly reacted to. In the past week we have seen a disjointed display against Newcastle and then Everton, garnering four points. The only positive right now is that Manchester City dropped points, but it doesn’t mask how …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool VS Everton

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool VS Everton

Well that wasn't good now, was it? Everton 0-0 Liverpool. For the fourth time in six games, Liverpool dropped points. The Reds now sit six points off the top of the table despite having had a very favourable run of games in this opening phase of the season. Liverpool have problems right now. They're not playing well, and they're also not playing with intensity. They've been outrun in each and every game this season, both in terms distance covered and …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 9.0 Both keepers came away with plenty of praise, and kept the clean sheets intact for each opposing side. Ali was big, and made some key saves to ensure Liverpool stayed in the hunt for victory. His importance is critical, but perhaps a little worrying how reliant we were. Man of the match. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 5.0 His form is a major concern, and perhaps an indication that he simply isn’t enjoying life in defence anymore. His …
Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

The game against Bournemouth was the first time this season that Liverpool had been able to get Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah involved properly.   Prior to that, the wide forward pairing had struggled to influence proceedings on a consistent basis. Diaz, for example, had taken seven shots in his three Premier League appearances. Across matches against Fulham and Crystal Palace, he had an Expected Goals average of just 0.21.  Granted, the sample size isn’t the largest but it was a …
What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

What sort of midfielders do Liverpool need?

Liverpool need a midfielder. This is no surprise, secret or revelation.  But there is a big difference between a midfielder and a midfielder suited to Liverpool. There are plenty of midfielders in the world. There are few who are good enough to improve Jurgen Klopp’s middle third. However, one thing that isn’t being discussed in great detail is what sort of midfielder the Reds ideally need.  Is it a controller to fill in for Thiago, a runner to replace Jordan …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Well that was one way to bounce back after a terrible start to the season. Having dropped seven points in their first three games, Liverpool took Bournemouth to the cleaners on Saturday afternoon at Anfield. A joint Premier League record victory of 9-0 had Anfield on its feet as last season's runners up showed the newly promoted side what life in the top flight is all about. Liverpool tied Manchester United, who have won 9-0 twice - against Ipswich in …
Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Jordan Henderson and James Milner need to be dropped, with clear limitations brought into their roles on the pitch. Neither can compete at the Premier League level anymore, and thus youth should be preferred whenever possible. It is not a targeted attack or misdirected opinion to state fact, and continuing poor performances do not lie. If circumstances dictate one of Milly or Hendo must start, then the other should only ever come into the game to replace the other. To …
Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …
