Shaqiri's the odd man out as Klopp's Liverpool squad evolves

Shaqiri's the odd man out as Klopp's Liverpool squad evolves

There were quite rightly a few eyebrows raised during Liverpool's recent Champions League victory over Ajax when Klopp decided to rotate his entire front three. Mané, Salah and Firmino were replaced by Minamino, Jota and the lesser spotted Xherdan Shaqiri in the vital 1-0 win. Both Jota and Minamino turned in bright displays, with the former continuing to impress in his early Anfield career.

Even before kick-off, it was apparent that the Anfield crowd was ready. A healthy crowd gathered outside the stadium -- as is customary on big European nights -- to soundtrack the team's bus' entrance, defiantly lifting their player's morale when it appeared to all that they were flogging a dead horse. 3-0 down to Barcelona from the first leg, Liverpool -- who were shorn of 2/3's of their potent attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino -- were given a …
Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Has Shaqiri been a success at Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has made a few signings that have come out of left field during his time as Liverpool manager. Gini Wijnaldum is certainly one that stands out in that respect, seemingly appearing to be a needless addition, not to mention one who wasn't expected to be used as an understated midfielder. The signing of Sadio Mane was also fairly surprising, believe it or not, at a time when Mario Gotze was the more fashionable alternative. In the summer of …

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 …

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

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

Liverpool progress to the final of the Club World Cup after a far from convincing 2-1 win over Monterrey. The Reds left it late once again, but Roberto Firmino’s injury-time goal was enough to clinch the victory following Naby Keita’s opener and Funes Mori’s leveller. The team selected to start the game was unorthodox, to say the least, which showed in the performance. It was always going to be difficult with so many out injured or rested, all that mattered …
