Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Reds should restore seven-point lead at top

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Jonathan Moss Date & Time - Saturday, January 19th @ 15:00 Current Odds - Liverpool 4/25, Draw 13/2, Arsenal 12/1 Form Liverpool Form Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool got back to winning ways last Saturday at Brighton. Mohamed Salah was the hero, scoring the only goal of the game after winning the penalty himself, drawing Pascal Gross into a clumsy challenge in the box.

Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Crystal Palace 0 - 2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's 2-0 victory at Selhurst Park was a perfect result. The performance itself though was a great deal detached from perfect. LFC's attacking brilliance is regularly lauded and rightfully praised, however, the response to the victory against Palace does not accurately reflect the performance itself, nor the underwhelming work of the forwards and midfield against a low block, again. Andrew Beasley wrote an excellent piece praising Liverpool, particularly the defence, and whilst his analysis of the defence is largely agreeable, …
Liverpool battle to a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace

Liverpool battle to a 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace

Kicking off on Monday night, Liverpool were looking up at their rivals in the early season Premier League table. A win was needed to keep pace with Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester City, who set out a marker with a 6-1 victory on Sunday. It was obvious early on that this wasn't going to be a highlight reel match. Palace weren't in the mood for a cake walk. Their physicality and speed were an interesting match for the Reds, but ultimately …

Has Klopp built a stronger back-up squad to the XI he inherited?

Has Klopp built a stronger back-up squad to the XI he inherited?

This summer's been a bit of a whirlwind, hasn't it? We've had the highs and lows of England's World Cup campaign, with ironic jeers of 'it's coming home' appearing more and more realistic as the Three Lions reached the semi-final. The dramatic use of VAR to keep pulses racing as modern technology enlarges its grip on football. The widespread appreciation of Jordan Henderson and his importance to the national side in Russia. I could go on. As far as the …
Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

Liverpool's Centre-Backs - Consistently Inconsistent

What a game! There is nothing like a European night at Anfield. I was several thousand kilometres away and couldn't fall asleep all night, like a little kid, just buzzing. The attack and midfield will rightfully claim most of the glory but the defending in the second half was probably the Red's best display in that regard in years. Holding the offensive juggernaut that is Manchester City to ZERO shots on target is as impressive as anything LFC have done …
Observations as Klopp Reigns Supreme Over Hodgson

Observations as Klopp Reigns Supreme Over Hodgson

Liverpool managed to overcome a first-half deficit against bogey team Crystal Palace to take the three points at Selhurst Park after goals from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah turned the tie on its head. Here are the observations from the match. Why Always Me? If Liverpool were going to find a winner against Palace in the dying embers of the match, who else would be the man to get it other than Mohamed Salah? The Egyptian showed tremendous composure to …

To be fair to The Eagles, they did have to face Spurs, United and Chelsea during that spell. Hodgson's men now find themselves in 16th position, just two …
September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

September Slump: What Next For Jurgen?

In the aftermath of Liverpool's shocking 2-0 exit from the Carabao Cup at the hands of Leicester, Jurgen Klopp admitted he was sick of the goals Liverpool were conceding. In September alone, Liverpool have conceded 10 goals in a span of 4 matches.  Fans and pundits have criticised Jurgen for not strengthening his defence over the summer and a lack of plan B when van Dijk wasn't available. Jurgen responded by saying he had looked at alternatives over a million …
The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

The Best 2/3rds of a Liverpool Team in Years

“And it’s Liiiiiiiivvvv-errr-pool Liverpool FC We’re by far the greatest two thirds of a team The world has ever seen.” Well, they had me fooled. As the hours passed and Sky reporters told us about how they’d spoken to ‘sources close to the club’ while standing outside car parks, I honestly believed there would be a nine foot lad in the background, creeping in through the Melwood gates, holding an expensive looking pen. Come 10.30pm I was beginning to fear …
