The Good, The Bad and The Ugly of Matchweek 2

With two matchweeks now complete, there's a couple of things we can say for certain. Firstly, this is going to be an entertaining season with the vast majority of teams seemingly having decided to not bother defending at all. Secondly, almost every team in the league still needs to make multiple signings. And finally, there will almost certainly be a couple of managers dismissed this side of Christmas. Liverpool and Tottenham entered the weekend with a lot of excitement as …

Liverpool Vs Leeds United Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Even before Liverpool fans had completely savoured the glory of their side being crowned the Premier League champions in 30 years, the Premier League is back with a new season. Liverpool’s defence, or “attack” (as Jurgen Klopp put it) of the Premier League title begins at home when on Saturday evening they host the winners of the Championship – Leeds United, led by the seasoned and well-respected Marcelo Bielsa. The parallels do not end in the two managers being two …
Wijnaldum Exit Would Hit Liverpool Badly

Wijnaldum Exit Would Hit Liverpool Badly

Gini Wijnaldum did not have a great Community Shield. But then, no one expected a team two weeks into pre-season to play with any rhythm or consistency and every Liverpool player’s performance on the day reflected that.

The ever-reliable James Milner has covered for him, but he is hardly a like-to-like replacement for Robertson …

Eight Centre-Backs Liverpool Could Look At To Fill A Need

With Kostas Tsimikas set to be announced as Liverpool's first summer signing this week, Liverpool have ticked off one box on their list of tasks for this summer. They have found a back-up leftback to offer cover and competition for Andy Robertson. With that done and dusted, Liverpool can move on to other areas that need addressing. Those would appear to be a back-up central defender, cover in attack and a central midfielder if a deal can be struck for …

After being crowned Premier League Champions several weeks back, the Reds will receive the trophy at Anfield on Wednesday night, after their last home game of the campaign.
