Mohamed Salah – What can we make of his goal drought?

Goal Drought. Rival fans calling him a one season wonder. His problem? The truth is  he hasn’t got one, considering he’s provided 17 goals and 7 assists this season which leaves him sitting comfortably 1 goal behind Sergio Aguero. The worst thing Mo Salah ever done was have that amazing season last year because I think it left people expecting him to repeat it and it gives our rivals a lousy excuse to try ...

Naby Keita, Qu’est-ce que c’est?

That’s three points for the manager right there. He can take them home and cuddle them to sleep tonight. He’s earned it. He targeted this game as the one where he could rest the big men and get some minutes in the legs for those who need it and he got it spot on.

The Calm Before the Storm

Breathe. The Reds are on a break. In theory anyway. In actual fact our boys are off scoring goals and heading ceiling-high footballs (love it Virge) but we are where we are.

ARSENAL VS LIVERPOOL – Match Preview

Match week 11 is upon us and while the City game was billed to be a test of Liverpool’s title contention ambitions, this is one game that never fails to excite every season; loads of goals and drama, that’s for certain.

The Impact of Virgil Van Dijk

When we signed Virgil Van Dijk back in January, there were some who questioned the £75 million paid by Liverpool to Southampton for his services. The most ever paid for a centre back. https://www.instagram.com/p/BdNxYbwHLXX/ But it's money well spent for what he brings to the squad.  You can't argue with the facts,  he's improved the defence so much since signing. Liverpool have the best defence in the Premier League this season, only conceded 7 goals, ...
