Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Liverpool vs Manchester United : A Battle for the ages

Always highly anticipated, often living up to the hype. Last season, leading into this fixture, Liverpool were absolutely flying. The Red Devils not so much, so Jose Mourinho parked the bus (no surprise there, actually). This season though, its a whole different story. The Media, pundits, analysts, statisticians, commentators( and the referees),  all believe that this is the year that Mourinho will bring United back to the pinnacle of English Football. It would be hard to disagree on current form …
Liverpool's​ ​No.6​ ​Dilemma

Liverpool's​ ​No.6​ ​Dilemma

Often referred as a holding or a defensive midfielder, number six is arguably the most important position in football. Be it Pep’s tiki-taka, Conte’s three defender system or Klopp’s gegenpressing, the number 6 role is pivotal for any tactic. While other teams have Kante, Wanyama, and Fernandinho doing the job astutely well, Liverpool’s number 6 position has always been a spot of bother for them. Jordan Henderson was given the defensive role last season and did well before getting injured. Emre Can …

Liverpool vs Crystal Palace Preview | Key Men, Team News & Stats

c Liverpool are one of only two top six teams playing in the Premier League this weekend, therefore they have a huge opportunity to strengthen their position in the top six. Although they have played more matches than the rest of the top six, at this stage of the season points on the board are better than games in hand.

Liverpool aim for Top 4 minus the style

Liverpool aim for Top 4 minus the style

Jurgen Klopp spoke a few weeks ago about the need for Liverpool to win ugly. On hearing his words in press conferences most listening would've thought he meant it metaphorically, but now, based on the evidence of recent performances,it seems he was dead serious in a literal sense. It has been far from pretty in the last couple of games for the Reds, but pretty effective. Liverpool are doing something they've mostly failed doing....they are effectively managing games. Grinding out results …

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

Liverpool: Why Emre Can Is the future, Not Henderson

One of the biggest mistakes that Klopp made was to allow Jordan Henderson to keep the armband when he took over. Maybe he didn't want to change too much, too soon. But in his second season, Hendo still has it. Apart from him not bossing games or being a natural midfield general ( shouting at the ref doesn't count as commanding), it basically made him "undroppable" and in the process stunted the development of Emre Can in central midfield, because unfortunately for the …
