The Emirates jinx continues for Liverpool

The Emirates jinx continues for Liverpool

The trip to North London to face Arsenal provided Liverpool with a wonderful opportunity to make a bold statement of intent against a potential title rival that would make the rest of the Premier League sit up and take notice. Two wins from two against Stoke and Bournemouth may have been a start that many expected Brendan Rodgers’ side to make, especially with the quality of new arrivals coming through the doors at Anfield, but coming up against much stronger …

Arsenal v Liverpool Preview | Predicted Line-ups & Facts

Six points in six, Liverpool stand near the top of the table two fixtures into the new season. Admittedly, the level of competition has ranged from mid-table to newly-promoted for the Reds. The narrative of the campaign so far, however, is top teams struggling against weaker opposition. Arsenal can, of course, count themselves among that group, having a mediocre 1-0-1 start to 2015.

As a result he’s remained relatively under the radar, but not for much longer. Scolari’s successor, Dunga, had no hesitation in calling up the young Brazilian upstarts who've lit up leagues across Europe in recent seasons, and Firmino made his debut for Nike’s yellow marketing machine in their friendly against …

Why Bony and not Benzema?

In the last few weeks I’ve sensed a real feeling of discontent regarding the calibre of players Liverpool have been linked to, Premiership names such as Wilfried Bony, Loic Remy and not with players like Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain. I've seen a lot of people say things like "The players we have signed now are players we could have easily gotten without CL". First off, I don't think that is true and here’s why: Emre Can would have likely …
