Milner The Man As Liverpool's Midfield Thrives

Milner The Man As Liverpool's Midfield Thrives

When Liverpool bought Fabinho this summer, to accompany the already arriving Naby Keita, there was an expectation that the two would be an absolutely tour de force in Liverpool’s midfield. And whilst there is ample evidence to suggest that that will be the case when the two work their way into starting regularly for Liverpool, it’s been a different pairing that have staked their claim so far this season – James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum. It’s fitting that I’m writing …

Gini Wijnaldum: The Vital Cog in the Machine

Gini Wijnaldum: The Vital Cog in the Machine

When Liverpool signed Georginio Wijnaldum from Newcastle in the Summer of 2016, did anyone really expect him to become Liverpool’s number six during their best start to a season in their history? No, of course, they didn’t. And yet, here we are. What Liverpool fans did believe they were signing was a talented, if not sometimes ethereal attacker who could also be deployed as the more reserved #10 in a midfield three – as he was deployed at PSV. The …
Player Ratings as Liverpool make it six from six

Player Ratings as Liverpool make it six from six

Liverpool returned to the tip of the Premier League table at the weekend, coasting to a routine 3-0 win against Southampton. Here are the ratings from the match. Alisson: 6 Produced a decent save from Charlie Austin’s late effort but otherwise untroubled. Hard to find many things to complain about and the fact he’s away from the headlines is only a good thing. Trent Alexander-Arnold: 7 Got forward well as usual, with his corner producing the second goal of the …

Liverpool 3-2 PSG: Player Ratings as Bobby dazzles Anfield late

Liverpool made Anfield fret, but Liverpool had more late European drama at Anfield, as an injury time winner from Roberto Firmino gave the Reds a 3-2 win over Paris St. Germain and a winning start to their Champions League campaign. Daniel Sturridge's header and James Milner's penalty put the Reds on course, but Thomas Meunier pulled one back for the French champions before half-time. Kylian Mbappe looked to have recovered a point for PSG when he scored in the 83rd …

For the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday, Liverpool will travel to Wembley Stadium to play Tottenham Hotspur, on what should have been the day of the unveiling of Spurs' new stadium. Memories of last season's visit to the national stadium, or any visit there since April 2012 are terrible, but the Reds won four in four before the break, and now head into a massive …
