Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup to play Real Madrid tonight?

Liverpool and Real Madrid meet tonight in the first leg of their Champions League quarter-final clash in Spain. Who will start for The Reds? Jürgen Klopp's men will be high on confidence after another impressive win on Saturday night when they beat Arsenal 3-0 at the Emirates Stadium. Diogo Jota came off the bench to score two second-half goals with Mohamed Salah also on the scoresheet. Klopp will, of course, be without several first-team players with Virgil van Dijk, Joël …
Would Istanbul glory pip Liverpool's 2005 heroics?

Would Istanbul glory pip Liverpool's 2005 heroics?

The idea of this season ending in glory for Liverpool seems little more than a pipe dream, if we're being completely honest. It has been a disastrous campaign for the Reds, with injuries depleting them and their Premier League title defence going out in a whimper. Not only that, but a top-four finish now looks highly unlikely, too. If that Thursday night graveyard shift in the Europa League is to be avoided next season, it looks as though Liverpool will …
Liverpool's route to another potential Istanbul final unveiled in Champions League draw

Liverpool's route to another potential Istanbul final unveiled in Champions League draw

Liverpool will face Spanish giants Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League as revealed in today's draw in Switzerland. Jürgen Klopp's men travel to Madrid for the first leg on April 6th or 7th before welcoming Zinedine Zidane and co to Anfield for the return fixture a week later. The last time the sides met was the 2018 Champions League final in Kyiv. Real Madrid won 3-1 after a night to forget for Loris Karius in the Liverpool …
Eder Militao: A Loan Option For Liverpool

Eder Militao: A Loan Option For Liverpool

Injuries to the defence have hampered Liverpool so far this season, even if it has barely shown on the respective Premier League and Champions League tables. An injury sustained by Virgil van Dijk in the Merseyside derby was the beginning of a run of rotten luck with injuries that is unprecedented in its scale in the club's modern history. Joe Gomez joined van Dijk on the sidelines -- where the likelihood is both will spend the majority of the, if …
Salah's Swan Song?

Salah's Swan Song?

After Mohamed Salah started the 2020/21 campaign with a red-hot performance against Leeds, is it time for us Liverpool fans to recognise the real possibility that this season may be his last at the club? Salah joined Liverpool from Serie A side AS Roma in the summer of 2017 after Jürgen Klopp was convinced he was the right fit for his squad by The Reds' scouting team. Speaking just months after Salah's arrival at the club, Klopp said:
"Our scouting …
Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

Where would Steven Gerrard fit into this Liverpool team?

While it's practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two year... it's always fun to fantasise, isn't it? So with that being said, here's a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation. Steven Gerrard. And before we get started, I don't think it's unfair to say that Captain Fantastic as he was so often referred to wouldn't fit into any of the …
The one Real Madrid player Liverpool should sign

The one Real Madrid player Liverpool should sign

Madrid isn’t usually a city Liverpool go shopping in but the Reds never pass up the opportunity to bag themselves a bargain. Perhaps the most opportunistic club in the world right now, Michael Edwards and the recruitment team know how to find value for money in what is a grossly inflated market.  The Premier League leaders have been linked with Isco recently while Marco Asensio is reportedly a long-term target, too. But it isn’t either of the playmakers who Liverpool …
Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

Liverpool should return to sign La Liga starlet

In football, rejection often closes that particular chapter. Clubs won't continue to their pursuit if a player has made it clear they aren't keen on the move. Sometimes it's to do with pride. Other times it's because the world of football moves fast and teams can't wait around on the off chance a mind is changed. Liverpool, however, are one of the few teams who seem to leave the door slightly ajar if a move doesn't materialise first-time around. Countless …
Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

With Liverpool cruising to a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, Jurgen Klopp maintained the 2 point deficit to Man City. Another clean sheet and a highly satisfying win, albeit with a dogged rather than spectacular performance. There's a certain symmetry to our away results against Watford since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers. From the pitiful 3-0 reverse in his first season, to a thrilling 3-3 draw last season which pointed to our underlying defensive deficiencies. To then …
Should We Have a More Balanced View on Michael Owen?

Should We Have a More Balanced View on Michael Owen?

A disclaimer before I begin: I’m a Michael Owen fan.  I’m of an age that means that I was just starting to be aware of football, and starting to play football when Owen was at his peak. The first football match I can ever remember seeing on TV? Germany vs England, in Munich. He was pretty good that day, along with fellow Liverpool players Steven Gerrard and Emile Heskey.  When I watched the Premier League highlights after that, I looked …
