Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview: Tough game expected under Friday night lights

Chelsea vs Liverpool Preview: Tough game expected under Friday night lights

Liverpool's seemingly endless run of tricky games continues on Friday, as they visit Chelsea in their fourth away game, fifth in total, of the Premier League season thus far. Seriously though, when are we going to get a nice run of fixtures? Soon, actually, ish. Once Chelsea are out of the way, it's Hull and Swansea before the easy task of Manchester United at home. So, plenty to look forward to, but all eyes now turn to Friday's clash. FORM …
Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

Liverpool 4 - 1 Leicester City - Tactical Analysis

The start of the 2016/17 season has been largely underwhelming for Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and indeed for the clubs fans. A high octane start in the win at Arsenal was followed by a largely ineffectual performance against newly promoted Burnley. The last game before the international break saw Liverpool somewhat unfortunate to come away from a trip to Tottenham with only a 1-1 draw. Finally after the league has paused to catch its breath after the international break we …

Liverpool 4 Leicester City 1: Player Ratings

Liverpool put on a great show worthy of the occasion, marking the return to Anfield after four months with four goals. There were excellent performances across the field. Let us see how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (6.5) - A mixed first half from Mignolet who made a hash of an attempt to get to the ball but was left in no man's land, but luckily was spared his blushes. The second half started in a similar manner, with his attempt to punch …
Klopp Building For The Future

Klopp Building For The Future

Modern football, its chairmen, managers and supporters alike, is obsessed with the quick fix. Typified by the wanton spending of Premier League- which often seems panicked and ill-advised- clubs in this summer’s transfer window, clubs want success and they are prepared to acquire it by means of chequebook, rather than honing the skills of their players on the training paddock. One manager, however, who believes in the process of coaching improvements into his players is Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp. The German …

Burnley 2 Liverpool 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool delivered yet another Jekyll and Hyde performance at the Turf Moor, as they ended on the wrong side of the scoreline in spite of having the ball pretty much the whole game. Liverpool struggled to break down a very resolute Burnley defence and need to go back to the drawing board. Let's see how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (6) - The Liverpool keeper was not to be blamed for any of the goals conceded, and was swift off the …
Assessing Liverpool's Attacking Options

Assessing Liverpool's Attacking Options

Liverpool go into the 2016/17 season with the best attack that they have had in a number of years, with a number of genuine high quality options across all positions. Although there is much more to any attacking player than two stats, ultimately they are judged on two things: goals and assists. Therefore to gage a better idea of Liverpool’s options this season particular attention has been paid to these figures. To calculate each player’s effectiveness per game a “CpG” …
Liverpool FC - Taking the Positives

Liverpool FC - Taking the Positives

Support is needed now more than ever This past weekend showed the best and the worst from our players on the pitch.  It also showed the positives and negatives of our own fan-behaviour off it.   At this stage I’m tired of hearing about Alberto Moreno’s shortcomings.  I was guilty of voicing these concerns myself on Sunday, in the heat of the moment.  Both after Moreno’s wayward header to the Arsenal attack in our box, and then the brainfart of …
Observations from the Thriller at The Emirates as Liverpool win!

Observations from the Thriller at The Emirates as Liverpool win!

The Premier League is back with a bang and in typical Liverpool fashion the Reds made their fans sweat on a result when it could've been much more comfortable. You could look at the negatives if you're that way inclined but, for me at least, it was a performance filled with positives and they're what should be taken away from such a result. A 4-3 victory away at the Emirates should be milked for all it's worth. It's a bogey ground …
