Carragher – Liverpool need a center-back to defend PL title

Former Liverpool center-back Jamie Carragher has claimed that the Reds' chances of defending their Premier League title are dependent on the acquisition of a center-back by Jurgen Klopp this month. The January window is now open and Liverpool have the chance of signing replacements for the likes of Vigil van Dijk and Joe Gomez who are out of action due to long-term injuries. The injured duo may not return to action until late in the ongoing season and this could play a part in Liverpool's failure to defend their Premier League title if it's eventually the case. In a chat with Sky Sports after the 1 nil Premier League loss to Southampton on Monday night, Carragher said: “I can’t see Liverpool winning the league if they don’t buy a center-back” The likes of Jordan Henderson and F...

Saints on point as Reds falter and lose ground in title defence

Liverpool will get it tough this season and must take the tough route to defend their Premier League title. This is no secret after they succumbed to a 1 nil defeat to Southampton in the Premier League on Monday night. This is also the case as the likes of Manchester United, Leicester City, Tottenham Hotspur, and Manchester City are hot on their heels in the race for the 2020/21 Premier League title. The Reds still top the table but will go down if notable contenders like Manchester United and Manchester City win their outstanding games. The Red Devils have a game in hand while the Citizens have two. Liverpool's woes were compounded by an early strike by Danny Ings, and this result is coming after two consecutive draws against the likes of West Brom and Newcastle. The ended 2020 o...

Anfield – The bane of visiting teams in the Premier League

Liverpool are not leaving anything to chance in their quest to defend the Premier League title and are doing themselves a lot of good by making Anfield the major fortress in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp's men have been phenomenal at home in the Premier League even in the absence of fans and it would seem foolhardy for anyone to bet against them in a Premier League home game presently. Liverpool are tied on points at the top with Tottenham Hotspur on 24 points after they thrashed Wolves 4 nil at Anfield on Sunday night and sit second in the Premier League. The Reds have continued their incredible domestic form in the Premier League despite the injuries to some key players in the team in recent times.

Robertson rubbishes rumors of rift between Salah and Mane

Liverpool fullback Andy Robertson has denied that there's a rift between Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane. Rumors of a rift between the two have heightened in recent months alongside suggestions that they do not get along. The rumor seemed to have gotten credence when Mane reacted angrily after Salah chose to shoot instead of passing to him the Premier League win against Burnley at Turf Moor in October last year. However, Roberton has dismissed those suggestions, pointing out that such a reaction is common and natural for players who are paid to be selfish in front of goal. According to the Scotsman, all Liverpool's forwards including Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino have a close relationship which has helped them achieve their recent successes. He made this known in a chat with the Li...

Trent Alexander-Arnold facing possible calf injury

Liverpool may be in for a hard time with regards to the availability of key personnel as the season progresses. The 2020/21 Premier League season is beginning to take shape as the pretenders are gradually being separated from the major contenders. There is the need for the Reds to have all their key players on hand to help them battle and retain their Premier League title. However, with the injury that has been hitting Jurgen Klopp's key men since the season began, they might struggle to do so. The Reds had to settle for a point at the Etihad against Manchester City on Sunday in a 1 all draw, with all goals coming in the first half. The draw could be considered a decent result but Jurgen Klopp and his men will be left fuming after Trent Alexander-Arnold was forced to hobble off du...

Klopp and Carragher clash due to no replacement for Van Dijk

It's a no-brainer that Virgil Van Dijk is a big loss for Liverpool after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Merseyside derby in the Premier League on Saturday which ended in a 2 all draw. The incident has resulted in a clash between Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and former Reds defender Jamie Carragher, with emphasis on the club's transfer business this summer. Liverpool legend Carragher questioned whether the club should have signed a defensive cover for the injured Dutchman in the course of a chat with Sky Sports on Monday. "Dejan Lovren went and they didn't replace him so they only have three center-backs and one of those, Joel Matip, is always injured," "There are question marks now about Joe Gomez. So there is no doubt that Liverpool had to go big in the tra...

Premier League Matchday 5 – Everton and Villa to be thoroughly tested

The Premier League's 100 percenters will have the opportunity to prove if they're up for it or if their previous performances have been a fluke and all fairytale. Regardless, I would advise that they shouldn't be written off if they fall short on Matchday 5. Aston Villa and Everton have won all their games thus far. Carlo Ancelotti's men have proven to be a free-scoring side early into the season with 12 goals already to their name with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring 6 of those goals, including one hat-trick. New signing James Rodriguez has also been very impressive for the Toffees thus far with 3 goals already. Aston Villa have been on a roll with an unexpected 3 wins from 3 with new signing Ollie Watkins also impressing and scoring a first-half hat-trick against defending champio...

Villa and Spurs on the beat with biggest PL Matchday 4 shockers

No one saw Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur putting six past Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United or Dean Smith's Aston Villa putting seven past defending champions Liverpool. However, this was the case in the last two games on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. This season hasn't been short of goals with lots of goals being scored thus far and shocking upsets being mounted too. Who would have thought that Everton and Aston Villa would be the only two teams with a 100% record at this point in the season? It's still early days but Carlo Ancelotti and Dean Smith deserve some credit for the performance of their teams thus far.

Chelsea vs Liverpool preview – First big game of the season

It's still early days in the 2020/21 Premier League season with the Matchday 2's fixtures yet to be executed, but we have a cracker on our hands already as Chelsea will welcome defending Champions Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. I'm sure a good number of football fans can still recollect how the last Premier League game between these two sides panned out although it was at Anfield. A whopping eight goals were scored the last time they met with the Reds emerging victoriously with a 5:3 win in an enthralling game. Regardless, both sides will face each other coming off the back of garnering maximum points in their opening game of the season. Liverpool had to rely on an 88th-minute penalty converted by hat-trick hero Mohammed Salah to beat newly-promoted Leeds United 4:3 at An...
