What went wrong for Arsenal against Liverpool?

Arsenal were swept aside with ease at Anfield on Saturday evening as Arsene Wenger's side struggled to overcome their bogey team. The two teams have had a long-standing rivalry but there was an elevated sense of competition last weekend as both clubs are in prime position to challenge for a top four finish at the end of the season. It was Liverpool who gained the advantage though, as all three points moved them back into a Champions League qualification spot …
Liverpool: Have they truly turned it around?

Liverpool: Have they truly turned it around?

Liverpool fans expected a response after a poor run of games, and my goodness they got it. The Reds tore through Spurs with ruthless precision, Sadio Mane's two goals in three minutes securing a long-awaited victory, Liverpool's first in the league for 2017. It has been reported that Jordan Henderson called the squad together and the lads had a heart-to-heart self-imposed intervention of sorts. It worked a charm and the players seemed to be playing with the flowing verve of …
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 …
How has Gini Wijnaldum settled in at Liverpool?

How has Gini Wijnaldum settled in at Liverpool?

Since joining Liverpool, Gini Wijnaldum has been a regular in the first team and his performances have split the fan-base. The majority recognise the qualities that he brings to the team, but there remain a few doubters. Although his fee looked steep at the time, it now seems good value compared to the transfers of Yannick Bolasie and Moussa Sissoko. The prices of players have sky-rocketed out of control and for that reason, the £25m fee shouldn't be used against …
Marcelo Brozovic - introducing the Arsenal and Liverpool target

Marcelo Brozovic - introducing the Arsenal and Liverpool target

According to Gazzetta Dello Sport, Marcelo Brozovic is a target for both Liverpool and Arsenal. The report states that after asking about the midfielder earlier in the window, both clubs are set to return strong and it could result in a battle for the Croatian midfielder. Inter had previously priced the midfielder at €30m, but their stance may have softened in recent days due to the managerial change. Frank de Boer is set to be appointed after Roberto Mancini was …
Idrissa Gueye - Is he good enough for Everton?

Idrissa Gueye - Is he good enough for Everton?

News broke earlier in the week that Everton had met Idrissa Gueye's release clause of £7.1m and the midfielder emerged as the favourite to be Ronald Koeman's first outfield signing of the summer. It will be underwhelming for Everton fans after being linked with Gini Wijnaldum, William Carvalho and Kalidou Kouilbaly, but this could be one of the bargains of the summer. He may have played in one of the worst Premier League sides in history at Aston Villa. However, …
Ayoze Perez - Set for an instant return to the Premier League?

Ayoze Perez - Set for an instant return to the Premier League?

Newcastle United were relegated last season to the surprise of many, as they did have a lot of talent in the squad. Moussa Sissoko, Gini Wijnaldum and Daryl Janmaat will all expect transfers to one of the top leagues in Europe, while there are a few others that might catch the eye of Premier League clubs. Ayoze Perez had a solid two seasons at Newcastle, transitioning well from the Spanish second tier, and will have plenty of admirers in the …
What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

What should Ronald Koeman do at Everton this summer?

This is a managerial move that has shocked many as Dutch football legend Ronald Koeman has opted to switch Southampton for Everton, despite the Saints finishing five places above his new club. It is certainly a risky move for Koeman, as the pressure will be increased on Merseyside, but he will feel that there is more potential for growth at Everton. Southampton continually sell their key players and he will have doubted his ability to keep them in the top …
