Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Over the last year or so, Liverpool have had an exceptional record in tying down their key players to new deals. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane -- among others -- have all penned new contracts to see them remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Absent from that list of renewals, however -- despite being just as key a cog to the Reds' winning machine as the aforementioned striking trio -- has been Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Since …

Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …
Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

It was a night that not many Liverpool fans will want to think about for too much longer. It was a humbling and rare defeat at the hands of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid that perhaps prematurely ended the Red's defence of their much adored European Cup. While the performance in the first leg in Spain left a lot to be desired in terms of pace and attacking threat, Klopp's men certainly dialled this up to 11 at Anfield and almost …
Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano heralded the end of Liverpool’s phenomenal winning streak. The performance itself was more concerning than the defeat though, with Liverpool merely creating eight chances (four of which were shots from outside of the box), one Big Chance, but not managing to get a single one of those on target. Liverpool’s 0.6 xG was one of the lowest generated in recent memory. The Atletico Madrid defensive shape was immovable and robust but rarely …
Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017. Then in the summer of 2018, Xherdan Shaqiri …
Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

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

Liverpool move to within 9 points of the Premier League title after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Once again, it wasn’t the most convincing of victories, with the referee and VAR conspiring to award Bournemouth a controversial opening goal. The Mentality Monsters returned, though, turning the game on its head to come away with all three points. In goal, Adrian replaced the injured Alisson and the Spaniard had to put his mistake at Chelsea quickly out of his …

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield in the early kickoff to go to within three wins of the Premier League title, after goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Callum Wilson's early goal for the Cherries was nothing but a little blip on the road. The Reds were well below-par, though, and need to be much better on Wednesday night when Atletico Madrid come to Anfield, in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. Here's how each …
Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool came from a goal behind to register their first win in three games in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield. Callum Wilson gave the relegation threatened visitors the lead in controversial style, when the striker clearly pushed Joe Gomez in the back in the build up to his goal, with VAR inexplicably allowing the effort to stand. However, goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the Reds the win, despite a nervy and slack …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Why can't we find a middle ground with Keita?

Four wins away from Premier League glory, two points dropped all season and various records on the verge of being broken - Liverpool supporters couldn't possibly find anything to argue about, right? Oh, we can. There is something ingrained in football fans that means we can never be completely happy, always having to pick holes in something. At Liverpool, the current 'issue' is Naby Keita, who has taken on the mantle from Jordan Henderson as the most divisive midfielder at …
