Everton 0 - 0 Liverpool: Derby Day Stalemate at Goodison

The Details Date: 7/4/2018 Venue: Goodison Park, Liverpool Background Due to Liverpool's progression in this season's Champions League, today's derby took a little step down in the list of priorities for Klopp and his team. The Reds made five changes with a view to protecting the full-strength eleven for Tuesday night's game at the Etihad. That's not to say, however, that Liverpool did not still put a strong team out, a team that should be able to challenge for all three points …

Lack of alternatives at the back means Liverpool hopes spurned at Spurs

Lack of alternatives at the back means Liverpool hopes spurned at Spurs

Coming into this big game hope was renewed for Liverpool supporters after a thumping win at Maribor, with Spurs coming in heavy legged after a tough clash in Madrid in midweek. But within 5 minutes of kick-off, it felt like this was going to be another one of those days and so it proved. To make things worse Spurs didn't have to play that well to dismantle us as most of the damage was self-inflicted from totally innocuous situations. Once …

Liverpool v Everton Preview - Merseyside Derby's Key Battles

It is that time of the year again - the time of the Merseyside derby. It has been more than six years since Everton have beaten Liverpool in any competition, and as the run-in approaches with a top four place at stake, Liverpool will have to be on top of their game.

I never wanted to see a repeat performance of what I saw Steven Gerrard give in the second half against Chelsea in the 2013/14 season as he tried single handedly to make amends for his slip. It wasn't his fault but he acted like every single one of the Liverpool fans would have in that situation. Your head goes. Logic is thrown out of the window and it becomes a battle …

With the season just around the corner many fans have started naming their 'Dream XI' for the season ahead. Sometimes you'll see these though and think yeah that'd be boss on Football Manager or Fifa. This is real life though and you have to consider the tactics and the shape. In the last week or so I've started to see people mentioning Henderson as our defensive midfielder. At first I thought they wanted to deploy Henderson as a deep lying …
Defensive Midfielders: Potential Targets Comparison to Liverpool’s Lucas?

Defensive Midfielders: Potential Targets Comparison to Liverpool’s Lucas?

With Liverpool making such positive headway during the first third of the Premier League season, there have been grumblings and moans at any supporters who dare to question the team or the tactics. It is true that, with recent seasons proving so desperate and barren, we should enjoy this season as the Reds look more competitive than ever - Rodgers’ squad currently sit second in the league. However, somewhere many fans believe Liverpool have lacked this season is the central …
