Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Why Jadon Sancho is Liverpool's Next Step Forward

Last week, this writer published a piece exploring how it is practically impossible to upgrade on this Liverpool team. Which, obviously, would make this piece seem slightly obtuse: why should the Reds pursue a very expensive winger if it won’t actually upgrade them? Well, despite currently being un-upgradeable: the best team in the world, reigning champions of Europe and the world, not to mention champions elect of England, there is always a way forward in football. Standing still, even when …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

And so the march continues. There were spells in this frantic contest where Liverpool's unbeaten run looked in real peril, but at the ground where their title 'rivals' Manchester City so spectacularly collapsed, they held firm before snatching victory. It's unlikely that the Premier League has ever seen a side with this capacity to grind out results. In that respect, they are the envy of the footballing, if not the entire sporting, world. The headliners Liverpool have simply forgotten what …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Those dastardly Reds have done it again; the pesky mentality monsters have stolen 3 points at Molineux after a very below-par performance. Roberto Firmino’s late winner puts Liverpool a remarkable 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand. In the net, Alisson could do nothing about the goal. It was an excellent header into the far corner from Raul Jimenez after a good delivery from Adama. Aside from that, our gloved Brazilian dealt …

Relentless Liverpool Tame Wolves Late On

Relentless Liverpool Tame Wolves Late On

Liverpool kept their Premier League winning streak alive with a hard fought 2-1 victory away to Wolves. Goals in either half from Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino -- either side of a Raul Jimenez headed equaliser -- sufficed for the Reds in what is likely to be one of their most difficult games for the remainder of the league campaign. The European Champions conceded their first goal in over a month, but the nature of the win -- where they …
Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Contrary to popular belief, Mohamed Salah is much more like Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. The Egyptian superstar may possess the latter's gorgeous left foot and low centre of gravity, but there is so much more about him that screams Ronaldo. Away from the grinning face and all-round likeable personality, there is a huge ego where Salah is concerned - he is someone who knows exactly how good he is, precisely how many goals he has scored and is well …
Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Tactical analysis: The impossible task of stopping Alexander-Arnold

Liverpool’s march towards a highly anticipated first Premier League title seemed to take a significant step on Sunday evening when they defeated old rivals Manchester United 2-0 at Anfield.  The win saw the Reds extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to 16 points but it didn’t come as so usually seen at Anfield these days. Jurgen Klopp’s men created the best chances of the game against a depleted United side but the scoreline remained on a …
The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

The Secret Behind Liverpool's System

People are going out of their way to not credit Liverpool for their ridiculous season to date. As things stand, VAR has been used as a reason the Reds find themselves 14 points clear with a game in hand. Rival fans have also claimed Jurgen Klopp has been lucky, with the table-toppers avoiding serious injuries, apparently. The latest narrative is that the European champions have few world-class players and that the majority of those being praised are only impressing because …
Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Manchester United: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool move 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand after a 2-0 victory over Manchester United at Anfield. The match should have been wrapped up long before it was, leading to a nervous final 10 or 15 minutes. The Reds held on, though, and the 3 points were sealed in second half injury time by Mo Salah. Alisson had very little to do, but the few shots that did come his way …
Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Winning Run

Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Winning Run

Liverpool opened up a 16 point lead at the top of the Premier League table with victory a 2-0 victory over their eternal rivals, Manchester United, at Anfield. Goals in either half from Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah gave the Reds a deserved victory in a performance of almost ceaseless dominance, with the final scoreline flattering the beleaguered visitors. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team were the only team to have taken any points off the table toppers in what has …
