Where would Mbappe fit in in 2020 Liverpool?

Where would Mbappe fit in in 2020 Liverpool?

It is one of the transfer rumours that simply won't go away. Kylian Mbappe is one of world football's hottest talents, and the young Frenchman never seems to be too far from the gossip columns. And ever since Liverpool's kit deal with Nike - which is due to begin next season - was given the green light in the High Court, those rumours have only had more fuel poured onto the fire. Jürgen Klopp has previously spoken of his admiration …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: A Tactical Breakdown

When the fixture list was announced, all eyes immediately scanned for one fixture: Liverpool vs. Manchester City. Last season, the fixture at the Etihad provided some of the most breathtaking, tactically stimulating and utterly brilliant football England has ever seen. It was a credit to football and to sport. This time, the Anfield leg offered Liverpool the opportunity to go nine points clear of their rivals, in November. Titles cannot be won in November, but they can be lost. Whether …
Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
Do Liverpool Have Another

Do Liverpool Have Another "Best in the World"?

This is the best Liverpool side of the Premier League era. There seems such little controversy in that, yet five years ago, the Reds were in a mire, in freefall after another debilitating second place finish that saw their star striker depart. It was debilitating because there was no recovery, no tactical acumen, no leading light to catch them as they fell. It was during that time, in that season – 14/15 – where the discussion of Liverpool’s midfield woes …
Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Observations as Reds overpower title rivals

It may only be November, but still this has the air of a season-defining victory for title-chasing Liverpool. They lead Manchester City by nine points, and though there remain 26 games before season's end, the sheer relentlessness of the Red machine makes the present deficit look rather bleak for the reigning champions. Pep Guardiola's men played well at Anfield, but ultimately Liverpool just had too much for them. Pre-match fears for City defence realised When the teams were announced, you …
Late Goal Loving Liverpool Win It Late Again

Late Goal Loving Liverpool Win It Late Again

Two late goals from Andy Robertson and Sadio Mane kept Liverpool's six point lead at the top of the Premier League table intact with a 2-1 win away to Aston Villa. The table toppers had trailed to a Trezeguet goal, but once again rescued the deserved three points late on in a display of patience and resolute character. From the outside, it was clear that the hosts would attempt to attack their illustrious guests and they had a chance almost …
Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

Liverpool confirm title credentials with City blockbuster approaching

The victory against Spurs was a much-needed riposte after the disappointing performance at Old Trafford two weekends ago. Liverpool stepped up to their mantle as mentality monsters; overcoming a poor start to comfortably dispatch a notoriously tricky rival in Spurs. A massive and much-needed win to maintain 6 points’ daylight between Klopp’s side and City. Recent fixtures against Spurs have been slightly turgid affairs. However, on Sunday, Liverpool’s tenacity allied with potent attacking flair, came out in full force. Alexander …
Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-1 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Despite the scoreline displaying a marginal difference, custom to a penalty, this was one of Liverpool's finest performances of the season, and the perfect follow-up to the dull, drab and wasted opportunity that was the Manchester United game. Displaying patience, breathtaking intensity and consistency, Liverpool dominated from the moment the first goal went in, and for the 75 odd minutes that preceded it. This not just a mature and organised performance, it was utterly brilliant, a display of composure and …
Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Observations as Reds Keep Fortress Anfield in Tact

Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Observations as Reds Keep Fortress Anfield in Tact

Liverpool absolutely battered Tottenham. Let nothing else take your attention away from that. From the moment the Reds kicked off after conceding an avoidable goal in the first minute of the game, their feet were headed straight for Tottenham throats, and in the end, all that pressure paid off in a 2-1 win to keep the six-point lead at the top of the Premier League. Jordan Henderson equalised just after half-time, and Mo Salah capped the win with a penalty, …
Genk 1-4 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Genk 1-4 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

So it begins. A gruelling period for Liverpool’s squad which will only leave three full rest days until the 23rd January (that’s days between games that are not classed as recovery). However, this particular fixture carried a little extra weight. Having won seventeen consecutive league matches, Liverpool put in one of their worst displays over the past year, with a drab, insipid and utterly dull affair against Manchester United, for all but fifteen minutes. Having already lost one group stage …
