"He would be an incredible fit" - RB Salzburg boss believes Haaland is ideal for Klopp's Reds

Red Bull Salzburg boss Jesse Marsch believes that the club's former striker, Erling Haaland, would be an ideal signing for Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool. Haaland made his name at RB Salzburg this season with 16 goals and four assists in just 14 Austrian Bundesliga appearances. Haaland also managed a brilliant 10 goals and one assist for Marsch's side in this season's Champions League through the qualifiers and group stage. The 19-year-old Norwegian striker then moved to Borussia Dortmund in January. In …
Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah and His Right Foot

Mohamed Salah is a goalscorer supreme, he’s explosively quick and he’s creatively a force of nature. But he doesn’t have a right foot.  To begin with, it wasn’t a problem. Teams couldn’t deal with the curly-haired, fleet-footed Egyptian and he’d find a way to wriggle back onto his favoured left foot when it mattered most. His debut season with the Reds saw him break a Premier League record with 32 goals from 36 appearances.  He followed that up with another …
The quiet man - Liverpool's acquisition of Takumi Minamino

The quiet man - Liverpool's acquisition of Takumi Minamino

In the 56th-minute of Liverpool's 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg at Anfield, Hee-Chan Hwang exploited the space on the left. Hwang wrapped his foot around the ball and put in a cross which would find its way to Takumi Minamino. The 24-year-old had been calling for it, arms raised, as he raced towards Liverpool's penalty area. With the pass travelling probably 40 yards to reach him, Minamino still had plenty of work to do. He kept his eyes on …
Why Liverpool want Takumi Minamino

Why Liverpool want Takumi Minamino

Liverpool have been linked with countless players over recent months. Timo Werner’s name has reemerged again, Jadon Sancho reportedly tops the club’s wishlist, Ryan Fraser got a mention a couple of weeks back and the French press even claimed the Reds wanted to sign Neymar. And what is without thinking about Kylian #Mbappe2020. The prices varied but it was clear the Premier League leaders would have to part with a substantial amount of money to reinforce their attacking options. That …

Liverpool are reportedly looking to sign Red Bull Salzburg playmaker Takumi Minamino and could try to get the deal done as early as next month. As reported by Paul Joyce in The Times, Jurgen Klopp, his backroom staff and many of The Reds' first-team players have been impressed with Minamino's performances in both games against Liverpool in this season's Champions League. The 24-year-old Japanese international can play in attacking midfield or anywhere along the frontline. He scored two goals, including …

Jurgen Klopp on Dejan Lovren's injury against RB Salzburg

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is hopeful that Dejan Lovren's injury relapse against RB Salzburg in the Champions League will not be the start of a long-term concern. Lovren, once again, had to be replaced by Joe Gomez in Tuesday night's impressive 2-0 win for The Reds in Austria. The Croatian defender was also substituted in the first half of Liverpool's 3-0 victory at Bournemouth on Saturday. On Tuesday, Lovren was passed fit to start against RB Salzburg and he put …
Moving On The Liverpool Way

Moving On The Liverpool Way

When it comes to advancing from the Champions League group stage, Liverpool refuse to do things the easy way. From Gerrard’s wonder strike against Olympiakos in 2004 to needing a result against Spartak Moscow in 2017 to Alisson’s amazing save against Napoli under the lights at Anfield in 2018, Liverpool love to keep things interesting on the final matchday. Thanks to more dropped points two weeks ago against Napoli, who are quickly becoming Liverpool’s Kryptonite, Jurgen’s men needed at least …

Salzburg rollercoaster provides timely reality check for Liverpool

Salzburg rollercoaster provides timely reality check for Liverpool

I must admit, I feel a bit daft. It was only recently that I wrote something, somewhere about how Liverpool's players are the epitome of the mentality monsters that Jürgen Klopp christened them as only last season. While that's still not so far from the truth, the Reds certainly have reason to believe that they are still susceptible to moments of incapability and mental weakness. The second group stage fixture of the Champions League will always be remembered as a …
