Final Curtains for Alberto Moreno?

You can argue the case that not to much should be read into Liverpool's 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday night in the Carabao Cup.

Daniel Sturridge ‘should he start?’

Last season it looked like Daniel Sturridge’s days were numbered at Liverpool, when he went out on loan to West Brom at the end of the January transfer window. We just couldn't rely on him to be fit when called upon so Klopp sanctioned a loan deal. Which didn't go according to plan for Danny as he was injured for the majority of his time at West Brom.

Can Liverpool beat Chelsea without Van Dijk?

A bamboozling run and a powerful drive by Belgium international, Eden Hazard, with five minutes to go, was enough to inspire a Chelsea comeback in the Carabao Cup at the expense of a hapless Liverpool. Virgil Van Dijk and the rest of Liverpool's back five were notable absentees, yet, until Hazard's introduction, the game was very much Liverpool's to lose, with the home side having had a number of opportunities to ...

It would be tough to win the Premier League if we ...

Sturridge’s Forgotten contribution

Last Tuesday night we were all treated to a glimpse of a player who was supposed to have been long gone by now. As PSG were expertly subdued at Anfield, Sturridge led our front line with real menace and hunger. It was the kind of performance we weren't expecting to see from him ever again. Injuries and progress had sadly left Daniel Sturridge struggling for a foot hold in the squad ...
