Klopp's Liverpool Evolution

Klopp's Liverpool Evolution

Last season, Liverpool was arguably the best team in Europe. An incredible Champions League victory and a stupendous 97 point league haul; allied with 30 league wins, which was always a mark of special Premier League Champions (at least in the past!). Four games into the new season, and, so far so good. Liverpool have continued where they left off last campaign. Maximum league points and the European Super Cup a welcome addition to the trophy cabinet. While Klopp is …

Observations as the Liverpool Escape From St. Mary’s with a Win

Liverpool stayed perfect on the young season with a wild and topsy-turvy 2-1 win over the Saints. Liverpool were equal parts dominant and diabolical as they were lucky to go into the break ahead and then managed to make things difficult at the end despite completely controlling most of the 2nd half. After some brief positive moments early, Liverpool fell under siege to a dogged Southampton side, especially after Milner went off for several minutes with an open cut above …

Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Despite being European champions, Liverpool have a squad full of divisive players. Some are undervalued and some are simply misunderstood. There are a number who tick both boxes and one such player is Fabinho.  The Brazilian doesn’t score goals. He doesn’t assist them either. He doesn’t play 70-yard crossfield passes that are shown on the Match of the Day highlight reel and he’s not the sort to dance past four opposition players before picking out a team-mate. The former Monaco …
Liverpool's Best and Worst Signings of the Premier League Era

Liverpool's Best and Worst Signings of the Premier League Era

Liverpool are enjoying a great degree of success on and off the field, delivering Champions League glory to the club for the second time this century. Jurgen Klopp's undeniable passion and his insatiable desire to get the best out of his players have propelled Liverpool back to the zenith of the continent. Like any other Premier League ever-present though, Liverpool have also had their fair share of transfer flops. It is here that we embrace the madness of Premier League …
Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool's Premier League game against Norwich was the first genuine test Jürgen Klopp's men have faced since becoming European Champions. This was the first occasion in which points were at stake, the team would be able to set a marker and display their intent for the season. The scoreline indicates a strong performance, and the side picking up from where it left off. Yet there were a number of signs that indicate both change and qualitative variance compared to last …
Tactical Analysis: How Liverpool Improved Mo Salah

Tactical Analysis: How Liverpool Improved Mo Salah

When Liverpool signed Mohammad Salah for £37 million from AS Roma in 2017, most people didn’t expect him to have scored 72 goals in 106 games. But, under the watchful eye of Jurgen Klopp, his reputation as a fast winger has rapidly developed into becoming one of the most prolific forwards in the Premier League. Looking back now, and at today’s current market, £37 million is an absolute steal for one of Liverpool’s most potent goal scorers of all time. …

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich City - Observations as Alisson Injury Taints Opening Day Reds Romp

Liverpool kicked off the new Premier League season with a comfortable 4-1 romp over Norwich City at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's men were put under pressure by a spirited Norwich side, but were also helped by a more-than-leaky Canaries defence, who shipped four goals even before half-time. Grant Hanley diverted a Divock Origi cross into his own net, Mo Salah scored one and then put a corner on Virgil van Dijk's head, before Origi easily headed a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into …
Klopp Crusade For Marginal Gains Bodes Well For Future

Klopp Crusade For Marginal Gains Bodes Well For Future

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp drafted in the services of a professional surfer to teach his players how to cope with stress ahead of the new football season. Sebastian Steudtner, a German surfer, was a guest of the club at their pre-season training camp in Evian last week to speak to the first-team squad. In a bid to help players cope with on pitch anxiety and stress, Steudtner headed a session for the squad in a swimming pool which focused on …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
