Observations as Liverpool take another three points from Stamford Bridge

Observations as Liverpool take another three points from Stamford Bridge

It was Sadio Mane's turn to get amongst the goals as Liverpool made it two wins from two in the Premier League by virtue of a 2-0 victory away to Chelsea on Sunday evening. With a cagey first half winding down to a goalless close, Andreas Christensen delivered what would be a fateful blow to his own team by hauling down Mane as the Senegal international was looking to burst past the much maligned Kepa for a tap-in. Receiving a …
Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it. On a defensively-sloppy evening for the Reds, the one man who seemed to come in for …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …
Is There Something In The Ajer For Liverpool?

Is There Something In The Ajer For Liverpool?

Dejan Lovren brought down the curtain on his six-year stint with Liverpool when he joined Zenit St Petersburg last month. Despite not being universally popular among the Reds fanbase, the Croatian international was nonetheless a player Jurgen Klopp regularly turned to -- be it as a regular starter or as a rotational player -- and he will need to be replaced ahead of the upcoming season. Several players -- including, Brighton's Ben White, Schalke's Ozan Kabak and Sevilla's Diego Carlos …
Klopp gives update on Virgil van Dijk injury

Klopp gives update on Virgil van Dijk injury

Jürgen Klopp insists there should "not be a problem" with Virgil van Dijk's head injury he suffered during Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Red Bull Salzburg. Van Dijk went off early in the second half after receiving a head injury. He was replaced by young defender Nathaniel Phillips. Liverpool's number 4 was visibly bleeding from the cut to the right of his head. However, Klopp was quick to allay any potential fears Reds fans had about a long-term injury to the …
Kabak vs White - Who should Liverpool sign?

Kabak vs White - Who should Liverpool sign?

Dejan Lovren’s departure left a void in the Liverpool squad. He may have only been the fourth-choice centre-back for the Reds but given Joel Matip and Joe Gomez are prone to the odd injury, it’s an important role at Anfield. Fabinho can, and has, played there but losing him as the deepest midfielder of a sustained period of time because he’s having to fill in at centre-back just seems like a waste.  The Premier League champions have been linked with …
What Liverpool Need In Their Next CB

What Liverpool Need In Their Next CB

After the sale of Dejan Lovren to Zenit St Petersburg, Liverpool have been linked with several defenders to replace the Croat in their squad. Aissa Mandi, Ben White and Ozan Kabak have all been suggested as potential targets for the Anfield club with the expectation that the Reds will fill the Lovren, back up centre half void in the transfer market and not by promoting youth and letting Nat Phillips, Ki-Jana Hoever and Sepp Van Den Berg cut their teeth. …
Why Liverpool Must Resist Matip Offers

Why Liverpool Must Resist Matip Offers

Rumours emanating from Cameroon suggest that Paris Saint Germain would be interested in signing Liverpool centre half Joel Matip. According to kick442, the Parisians coach, Thomas Tuchel, and their sporting director, Leonardo, would like Matip, 28, to replace the outgoing Thiago Silva who will leave the club on a free transfer this summer. However, despite injury meaning the former Cameroon international only clocked up 13 appearances last season, the Reds should rebuff all approaches for their number 32, even if -- as …
