Has Klopp Solved Liverpool's Over Reliance on One Star or is it Still a Problem?

Has Klopp Solved Liverpool's Over Reliance on One Star or is it Still a Problem?

Liverpool's season went from wonderful to woeful in the span of four weeks, and things look shaky for the Merseysiders. They face Tottenham next and are desperately in need of a win which may turn things around for them. A significant improvement under Klopp this season pointed to the team's performances not being reliant on individual performances. Under Brendan Rodgers, the successful 2013/14 season was mainly down to the incredible performance of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge, with great contribution from …
Liverpool must not get tempted and sell Daniel Sturridge

Liverpool must not get tempted and sell Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge is going through a highly strange period in his Liverpool career. Since the departure of Luis Suarez, Liverpool’s struggles have always been attributed to Sturridge missing due to recurring injuries. It was only natural to assume that if Liverpool were succeeding and Sturridge was fit, the striker would be playing a considerable part in that. Jurgen Klopp’s side are flying high in the league. They went into the November international break on top of the table, which was …

Arsenal: the Expected and Unexpected Title Contenders

Arsenal fans will be experiencing a sense of deja vu. They're here every season.

Sergej Milinkovic-Savic: Should be on Premier League Clubs' Radar

Born 100 miles west of Barcelona, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic always looked destined to be a quality athlete.

Kyle Walker - Currently Spurs' Player of the Season?

The only team to be undefeated in the league, Tottenham Hotspur, have begun the new season well. The 2-0 win over Manchester City was the perfect result before the two weeks long international break. Considering Spurs have done well so far, there have unmistakably been some players who have given great performances. Heung-Son Min has recently been getting amongst the goals, Erik Lamela looks like his underperforming days are behind him, Christian Eriksen remains a consistently brilliant player for the …

Liverpool defeat shows Conte needs to reinstate Cesc Fabregas

When results start slipping away from a side, it is inevitable that fans and pundits begin to dissect the reasons behind it. The aftermath of Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at Swansea called many to ask Cesc Fabregas to return to the first team. When Conte didn’t start the player against Liverpool, the team's 1-2 loss to the Reds also meant many fans thought Fabregas’ reinstatement to the first team could change things for the side. Rumours suggest that the Spanish midfielder …
Why Eriksen's new contract is great news for Spurs

Why Eriksen's new contract is great news for Spurs

After much negotiating, Tottenham player Christian Eriksen has finally signed a new four-year contract at the club. The Denmark international is understood to have increased his base salary from £35,000 to £70,000 per week, which will make him one of the club's top earners. Although Eriksen still had two years left on his initial contract, him extending his contract will come as a relief to many. Eriksen has been in negotiations with Tottenham since March. While there hasn't been any particularly unprofessional …
Markovic's Liverpool Future Looks Bleak

Markovic's Liverpool Future Looks Bleak

When Liverpool bought Lazar Markovic from Benfica for £20m, there was plenty of reason for optimism. The Serbian had shown flashes of devastating potential and much was expected from him. He had won four leagues titles at the age of 20, three of them with Partizan Belgrade and one with Benfica. He also had a Europa League runners-up medal to his name. What was most impressive was that at 20, Markovic had already made 114 first-team appearances, scoring 21 goals and …
