This season, however, as they prepare for a visit to Vitality on Sunday evening, it would be fair to say that the Reds have had multiple disappointments already. Jurgen Klopp has had to recalibrate targets and rotation plans as his team has gathered six fewer points than they did …
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.

Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Liverpool's Squad Depth the secret to Success

Squad Depth. It’s how you win things. The luxury of having a large squad filled with enough quality to compete on many fronts… every manager's dream. That is a luxury that has not always been afforded to Liverpool managers in the recent past. Never-mind the squad as a whole; just the subs bench alone would leave much to be desired. The bench is an asset, often providing the manager with an inventory of options to change the outcome of a game …

Loris Karius or Simon Mignolet - Who should start for LFC?

Loris Karius or Simon Mignolet - Who should start for LFC?

Jurgen Klopp has been presented with a decision all managers hope to have to make at some point. Competition for places is a blessing in Premier League football. It strengthens the squad, improves the starting XI and can bring the best out of under-performing players. This was probably Klopp's thinking when he opted to bring in proven Bundesliga keeper, Loris Karius from former club Mainz for £4.7m this summer ahead of the new season. Simon Mignolet has been poor in …
