Ample Positives For Liverpool To Take Despite European Exit

Ample Positives For Liverpool To Take Despite European Exit

Liverpool bowed out of the Champions League at the quarter-final stage after a 0-0 draw with Real Madrid at Anfield on Wednesday night. Trailing 3-1 from the first leg, the Reds -- despite creating ample chances -- were unable to prize open the stubborn defence of the visitors and, for the second year running, they were eliminated from Europe by a Spanish team. The defeat is obviously disappointing for Jurgen Klopp, the players and the fans alike, especially because it …

Saša Kalajdžić: A Potential BIG Signing for Liverpool?

Saša Kalajdžić: A Potential BIG Signing for Liverpool?

By all accounts, Liverpool will focus much of their transfer efforts this summer on signing a forward. With question marks over the futures of Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, the Reds seem primed to recruit a squad player who can compete with -- and not replace -- Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, and Diogo Jota. Several players have already been linked to the Anfield team with Leeds United's Raphinha -- who, as a wide attacker, would be a continuation …

Nicolas Gonzalez: A Future Liverpool Forward

Gradually, reports are beginning to emerge that Liverpool's main priority in the upcoming transfer window will be adding more firepower to their forward line.

Ozan Kabak: Harshly criticised and under-praised

LIVERPOOL ARE BACK! Well, they've won another game, at least. The Reds were excellent in their 2-0 win over RB Leipzig, as they were in the first leg and in a smattering of recent away matches. For all this incomprehensibly bad home form at Anfield, which is now bordering on laughable, Jurgen Klopp's men haven't completely lost their mojo. Wednesday's victory in Budapest was further proof that Liverpool's season isn't dead and buried, with more glory in Istanbul the one …

MOTM Fabinho raises levels as Liverpool advance in Europe

Jurgen Klopp hailed the joy of seeing "the best number six in the world" back in his favourite position, as Fabinho put in a Man of the Match display throughout Liverpool's 2-0 win over Leipzig on Wednesday night. Courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool rode to a 4-0 aggregate win over the in-form German side, casting aside Premier League concerns to move into the Champions League quarter finals. Unlike the first leg, where Liverpool weren't brilliant …
Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool fell to club-record fifth consecutive Premier League home defeat with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield. Mason Mount's first-half goal separated the teams in a result that could well prove a hammer blow to the Reds' Champions League qualification prospects. Controversy ensued when Jurgen Klopp replaced Mohamed Salah late on, despite the Egyptian looking like the host's best chance of manufacturing a goal, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino -- both of whose performances were well below their …
Liverpool's New Shape

Liverpool's New Shape

To put it bluntly, Liverpool dominated Sheffield United. In previous games against the Blades, it’s been a struggle and the Reds have needed to dig deep to eke out wins. This game wasn’t like that, though. It finished 2-0 but it could’ve easily have been 5-0. In fact, it probably should’ve been.  Jurgen Klopp, to the surprise of many, didn’t make any changes to his midfield or attack. There had been rumblings in the build-up that Fabinho and Diogo Jota …
