Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool will hope to return to winning ways this weekend as they host Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday, the side in second taking on the side second bottom. On a bitter November's day at Anfield there shouldn't be a beachball in sight, something that the Reds can use to their advantage in a bid to return to the Premier League's summit. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Sunderland Venue: Anfield Date: Saturday 26th November Time: 15:00 BST Referee: Anthony Taylor FORM Liverpool will feel unfortunate not …

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

In times before the great Liverpool ascendancy of season 2016/17; before Jürgen’s rampant Reds stormed into the Premier League landscape and claimed it as their stomping ground, there was a 20 year-old starlet coming through the ranks in Borussia Mönchengladbach. It was hardly a well-kept secret that Klopp, in his first summer transfer window at the club, courted the young Syrian-born German under-21 international. And he should do it again come January. To retain their status as Premier League title …

Southampton 0 Liverpool 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool kept knocking on the door, and loosening the locks but they just could not break down a very resolute Southampton side today. This is how the Reds fared. Loris Karius (6.5) - Spectator for the whole of the game. Came out once to make a punch. Released the ball at the earliest whenever he got it. Nathaniel Clyne (6) - Considering the fact that Southampton lined up very narrow, Clyne could have done a lot better today. He often bought …

Southampton vs Liverpool Preview | Internationals Over, Back to Business

Hallelujah. The international breaks of 2016 are over, and we've now got around four months of uninterrupted domestic football on our hands. Liverpool resume their campaign on Saturday with an away fixture against Southampton. A trip to Saint Mary's, especially on a cold November Saturday, is always a tricky one, but Liverpool go into it top of the table, and intend to stay there. THE DETAILS Match: Southampton vs Liverpool  Venue: St Mary's Date: Saturday 19th November Time: 15:00 BST Referee: Mark Clattenburg FORM You …
As Jurgen Klopp says: 'Let's Stay Cool'

As Jurgen Klopp says: 'Let's Stay Cool'

Top of the league, Klopp at the helm, and a rampant Liverpool team, faced with a set of upcoming fixtures, that on paper, look more than winnable. Yet Jürgen Klopp has stated clearly to cool any early title talk, and once again, he's right. The 'feel-good' vibe around Anfield, and amongst the Liverpool FC fanbase,  which I noted as 'Klopptimism' in my most recent piece, has transcended into delirium following the brutal decimation of Watford, at home. We need to take …
Liverpool 6 Watford 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool 6 Watford 1: Player Ratings

LIVERPOOL TOP OF THE LEAGUE POETRY IN MOTION WE SCORE WHEN WE WANT I HAVE NOTHING (MORE) TO SAY Loris Karius (7.5) - Pretty much trouble free first half for the German as Watford struggled to create any threatening chances. He looked eager to initiate quick counter-attacks whenever possible. Karius was far more involved in the second half and pulled off three excellent saves to ensure Liverpool did not concede more than one. His catching and punching was far more …
Jurgen's Plan B Sticking To Plan A

Jurgen's Plan B Sticking To Plan A

Disclaimer- Despite the positive performance and result using our second string side against Spurs last Tuesday, I am aware that we did beat a Spurs reserve team who have an eye and a half on the Champions League and these boys will face up to tougher opponents. During Mauricio Pochettinos post-match press conference after Liverpool's EFL win over Spurs, the Spurs coach stated that Liverpool boasts one of, if not the best, squads in the League after the Liverpool reserves defeated …
Did a tactical tweak help Liverpool beat Palace?

Did a tactical tweak help Liverpool beat Palace?

Liverpool's victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday evening was a bit of a whirlwind performance. It highlighted the very best of Jurgen Klopp's revamped Reds side whilst simultaneously exposing to the world their glaring frailties. At times it almost felt like Liverpool's attack versus their defence. It had a 2013/14 sort of feel to it. The aftermath of such a performance has rightly been centred around Liverpool picking up yet another 3 points. They kept pace with Manchester City and …
Observations from Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace

Observations from Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace

It was billed as Benteke v Liverpool; the striker’s first game against his former club after his ill-fated move to Anfield lasted just one season. As it transpired, he was nearly as peripheral here as he was for his former club, despite Palace scoring from crosses. Instead, this was a game that emphasised both sides of this Liverpool team – some irresistible attacking play that resulted in four goals and defensive vulnerability in conceding two, but here are my observations …
