Liverpool legend John Barnes believes that the club are still a far away from being recognised as title contenders even though they have done well under the regime of Jurgen Klopp.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager came to the club as the replacement for Brendan Rodgers. His ideas are seen as a step above the Northern Ireland manager, who achieved Champions League qualification only once in his three years at the club. Immediately upon his arrival,Klopp has transformed the way the club have been playing for quite a while. Liverpool have become much more offensive while being urgent in the defensive areas like pressing.
This high-intensity style of football has already contributed to some impressive victories over the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City. The club remain only a couple of points below the top four and talk has begun about potential title challenge if Liverpool maintain this form till the end of the campaign. This is due to the limited difference between the teams occupying top four and the top of the table. Leicester currently lead the table but with only a couple of points advantage over Manchester United. Barnes admitted that he is a fan ofKlopp, while also stating that he is sad to have seen the end of Rodgers at the club. Continue reading
Former star of Liverpool, Steven Gerrard has hinted out the possibility of retiring in 2016 as the veteran player stated that his playing career is reaching it’s end but even though he will be staying out of the pitch and not playing at a professional level, a coaching career is something that has interested him.
Steven Gerrard told the media: “I’m not 100 percent sure but I think it will probably be my last year as a player. I have regrets I didn’t start my coaching badges at 21, 22. All that time wasted in hotels as an England player when I’ve been bored and was watching ‘The Office’ and ‘The Sopranos’. I wish I’d done my coaching license then so I’d be doing my pro-license now” Continue reading
Jurgen Klopp’s decision to go into the game against Exeter City with a second string XI did not work well, but, the manager has hinted that he would not hesitate to put a similar sort of young line up on the pitch again in future.
Given the fact that almost half the Liverpool side was injured, the changes were always going to be made, but, nobody would have thought that it would be a totally different starting XI on the park. None of the players, who had started for Liverpool in their previous League Cup game against Stoke City, played on Friday. Continue reading
If you are a Liverpool supporter or a regular follower of the Premier League you probably know that Liverpool results and player performances are difficult to predict. One day you might see the Liverpool which destroyed Man City 4-1 or outplayed Leicester.
You might also see, however, an utterly embarrassing team performance like the one ten days ago, when they were crushed 3-0 by Watford. In this article we’ll try to do the impossible and find some safe bets for the games ahead and the season in general.
Liverpool’s performance versus Newcastle was surprising not only for the pundits, but, for the boss Jurgen Klopp himself. The Reds suffered their first loss on an away ground under Klopp.
They had been dominating as a travelling team of late beating the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City by big margins in their backyards, and with possession stats in the 60s according to Casino-X. One would have imagined that their counter pressing game would be too hot to handle for Newcastle as well, but, it wasn’t to be.
James Milner has targeted a much better home form in order to start cleaning up the table. Signed from Manchester City on a free transfer, the England international has fast established himself as an important member of the squad.
Even after the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, his position in the team does not appear to have changed. He played the full 90 minutes in the recent 4-1 win over Manchester City at Etihad stadium. Klopp claimed that this victory helped recover the points dropped in the defeat against Crystal Palace at Anfield.
Liverpool are one of England’s most prestigious clubs and the Reds have enjoyed plenty of success throughout their illustrious, long-standing history. Liverpool have won 19 league titles, five European Cups and seven FA Cups since they were established in 1892.
The Reds haven’t won the league title since 1990 but this season, Jurgen Klopp’s men have a genuine chance of success and, as of December 10th, are priced at just 12/1 to win the Premier League this season in Coral’s football odds. They are currently just nine points behind leaders Leicester City and Klopp’s side are likely to improve further throughout the campaign.
Liverpool managed to get their first league win under Jurgen Klopp after a 3-1 result against Chelsea. This victory comes just days afterKlopp managed to get his first victory in the League Cup against Bournemouth. Prior to this victory, the German had achieved three consecutive draws and several doubts about his ability to manage the Premier League outfit had just started rising. Following these two impressive wins, though, Liverpool have already been asked about a potential title challenge.Klopp has dismissed those concerns right away by saying that he wants to take every game as it comes.
The latest win against Chelsea was mightily impressive considering that the blues were playing at home, where they are usually very strong. Furthermore, Chelsea opened the scoring within the opening 10 minutes through midfielder Ramires. For much of the first half, Liverpool struggled to create any meaningful opening in the game since they were without striker Christian Benteke, who was not deemed 100% fit to start. The striker came from the bench to score the third and final goal. This victory means that Liverpool are unbeaten in the last five games and they are now up to seventh in the table.Klopp will now look to build on this victory rather than aiming for the title straightaway.

Former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier believes that the club appeared to have finally found the right manager in the form of Jurgen Klopp, who he believes can help Liverpool win the league title after almost 3 decades.
Liverpool were one of the most successful English teams during the late 1980s, but they have not won the Premier League in its two decade existence. The closest that became was two years ago when Brendan Rodgers’ team were just a couple of points behind Manchester City. Rodgers paved way for Klopp after the recent international break.
