Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Liverpool have a deeper squad than they have in previous years. This is not a fact that I’m going to dispute, although I’d definitely make (and will make) some arguments that that depth isn’t as deep as maybe it’s being made out in some areas, and certainly hasn’t drastically improved over the summer. Nevertheless, Klopp has slowly been building a deep and impressive squad that the four acquisitions in the summer have moved relatively close to being a very top …

Liverpool FC Squad Analysis: The Depth Chart

There are two weeks to go until the summer transfer window slams shut, locks and closes its shutters. Jurgen Klopp has apparently announced there will be no more signings with his comments last week - "We have everything we need for the next season because I don’t think we will do anything more, I’m pretty sure of that." Having written this piece for AI for the past two summers, this year I'm excited to bring you the Depth chart for …
How Liverpool Can Build a Squad to Challenge on All Fronts Next Season

How Liverpool Can Build a Squad to Challenge on All Fronts Next Season

With the welcomed additions of both Fabinho and Naby Keita to Liverpool's midfield, we almost have a starting eleven that is capable of challenging Manchester City for the title. To be a team with genuine title credentials next year though, we still need a new goalkeeper, centre-back and number 10.

Liverpool's Depth Issues Are Being Overstated

A lot has been made of Liverpool’s depth issues recently, and particularly in attack. There are good reasons for this, as Liverpool have drawn three of their last four league games, two of them 0-0, as they attempted to balance crucial Premier League and Champions League fixtures. I myself wrote an article on the topic just a few weeks ago, after the goalless draw at Goodison Park. With the Reds 90 minutes away from a Champions League final and one …
Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

With an 83rd minute Suarez-esque strike that left Stoke’s centre-backs with heads in hands, Mo Salah broke through yet another barrier for Liverpool. This mark though might have gone unnoticed amongst the Egyptian’s long list of accolades. More than one-third of the way into the season, the Reds have tallied 28 goals, third most in the league, but only this latest among them came in the last 10 minutes of any match. In comparison, former Red, Raheem Sterling already has …
Observations from Liverpool's victory against Stoke

Observations from Liverpool's victory against Stoke

It felt like groundhog day for Liverpool fans, as Bojan headed Stoke level after the Reds had dominated early on and had deservedly taken the lead through a Alberto Moreno stunner. This only seemed to fuel the players as Liverpool ran out 4-1 winners in a game that was all too easy. It was a victory which saw them leapfrog today's opponents into eighth position, two points behind Southampton but with two games in hand. There were plenty of positives to …
