Say what you want - Liverpool's defence is good enough for a top-four finish

Once again in the Premier League, Liverpool are playing an exciting brand of attacking football, which is perhaps only bettered by Manchester City in the top-flight. Jurgen Klopp’s trusted 4-3-3 formation allows the likes of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino to pile forward, whilst they are often joined by Philippe Coutinho, who can be found in a slightly deeper role. Liverpool have 21 goals in the Premier League after 11 fixtures and have also scored a further 13 …

How Will Liverpool Cope With Nathaniel Clyne's Continued Absence?

The Liverpool right-back hasn't featured for the Reds since July and will be left sweating ahead of the World Cup, with his chances of making the squad looking thinner based on this news.

Can Pellegrino’s Saints Frustrate Anfield Once Again?

Southampton have proven tricky customers for Liverpool in recent history. It is almost two-years since Divock Origi inspired a 1-6 League Cup win for Liverpool, but since then the Saints have had the edge over the Merseyside outfit.

Liverpool's Season So Far: A Start of Two Extremes

In his first press conference as Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp had said that the club should be competing for titles within a few years – may be four. While his first season did not bring any joy in the league, it did bring two cup finals for the Reds, albeit they lost both of them. Last season, there were no cup finals, but Liverpool were second in the league around Christmas and there was hope of a title run at …
The Resurgence Of Alberto Moreno

The Resurgence Of Alberto Moreno

From two Premier League starts in the last campaign to the most consistent Liverpool defender, Alberto Moreno’s unlikely resurrection has been one of the biggest positives for the Reds this season. Not many entertained the fact of him staying beyond the summer, the signing of Hull City’s Scottish international left-back Andy Robertson further made the Spaniard’s exit look inevitable. However,  the 25-year-old refused to concede that his Liverpool dream was over as he opted to stay at Anfield with the …
Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Son Hueng-min: A second-string star

Tottenham's recent dismantling of Liverpool and Real Madrid at Wembley has seen their temporary ground begin to feel a little bit more like home. Yet a dire first-half display against Crystal Palace on Sunday left some suspecting that another Wembley slip-up was impending. But midway through the second-half, Hueng-min Son stepped up to stroke in a fine curling effort and score a crucial winner for Spurs. It was also the goal which made Sonny the highest-scoring Korean to grace the Premier League, surpassing notorious 'big-game player' and Arsenal slayer, Park Ji-sung. In truth, Son shares many similarities with his Korean …

How important is Sadio Mane to Liverpool?

Liverpool delivered their best performance for a number of weeks on Saturday as they ran out convincing 4-1 winners against West Ham United. Before the match, the return of Sadio Mane was widely discussed and his contribution during the match underlined his value to the team.
