Necessary squad rotations pay dividend for Liverpool in the FA Cup win over Plymouth Argyle

Jurgen Klopp fielded a primarily youthful Liverpool side that ultimately went on to earn a narrow 1-0 over Plymouth Argyle in the replay leg of the 3rd round of the FA Cup on Wednesday evening. Lucas Leiva, Alberto Moreno, Daniel Sturridge, Divock Origi, and Philppe Coutinho were the only senior players amongst the starting eleven in addition to goalkeeper Loris Karius.

What’s next for Dimitri Payet?

Since the January transfer window has opened, Dimitri Payet has made it publicly clear that he no longer wishes to play for West Ham United. The 29-year old France international has had a falling out with manager Slaven Bilić, and has expressed his eagerness to leave the club in the midst of a season that's not gone according to plan for West Ham

Is Liverpool’s Gegenpressing losing its effectiveness?

Liverpool have had so much success under Jurgen Klopp with their high intensity style of Gegenpressing; also known as 'high pressing', or 'immediate ball recovery'. As soon as they lose possession of the ball in advanced areas of the pitch, they're so quick to swarm their opposition in efforts to win the ball back and put defenses under immense pressure in front of their own goal.
Morgan Schneiderlin

Morgan Schneiderlin can resurrect his career at Everton

Reports have confirmed that Morgan Schneiderlin has successfully completed his medical ahead of a £22m move to Everton from Manchester United; Everton have reportedly out-bid West Brom for the midfielder. The deal has not been officially announced by either club, but it's now an inevitability and the confirmation is expected within the next couple of days.
Daniel Sturridge

Daniel Sturridge continued his sub-par form against Southampton

There's just no disguising it; Daniel Sturridge has really struggled to find a foothold at Liverpool ever since Jurgen Klopp took over as manager in October 2015. The England international has been in and out of the squad through a series of injuries for the past 15 months as he's failed to become a consistent starter under Klopp, especially in the Premier League.
