Home sides start on a high on day 1 of 2020/21 UCL quarterfinals

The quarter-final stage of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League kicked off on Tuesday night and the first night of action saw all the home sides come out victoriously. Real Madrid beat Liverpool 3:1 at Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano in a game they dominated based on chances created. They also limited Jurgen Klopp's men to just 1 shot on target amid fears that they would be very open in the absence of Sergio Ramos and Rafael Varane. However, it didn't matter eventually, as Vinicius was on hand to deliver deadly blows to Liverpool. Regardless, Zinedine Zidane and his men know that there is still all to play for when they visit Anfield, although the venue has become a hunting ground for visiting teams, albeit domestically. Therefore, the Los Blancos will be wary of the threat the Reds po...

The 2020/21 PL season suddenly became long for Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp and his men would be happy for the ongoing international break. The German tactician will have some time to restrategize ahead of upcoming games in the Premier League and the UEFA Champions League. One funny fact is that the Reds are doing very well in the UEFA Champions League but somehow find it difficult to garner points in the Premier League. It's good that they managed to win a Premier League game before the international break. We could say they went into the break on a high as they sealed a place in the quarter-final of the UCL against Real Madrid and beat Wolves at the Molineux in their last Premier League game. However, how Liverpool went from red hot defending champions and title contenders to top 4 contenders remains a strange sight. READ: Sagna lauds...

UCL – Can this Premier League trio make their numbers count?

The Premier League is the go-to league at the moment in Europe after three of their teams have made it to the quarterfinal stage of the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League against all odds. We may have predicted this number making it to the round of 16 but making it further? Well, unless the folks at Footiehound are psychic. The likes of Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester City are in the next stage of the competition and have ignited hopes that the UCL title can end up in England this season. However, can these clubs make their numbers count? England currently has the highest number of representatives remaining in the competition and this is a good one although there is the concern of an all Premier League encounter. Regardless, they've been impressive in the competition this season. RE...

Liverpool and United to battle for Nuno Mendes

Sporting CP left-back Nuno Mendes is reportedly attracting the attention of two Premier League giants, Manchester United and Liverpool. The 18-year-old has been in scintillating form for the Portuguese outfit this season and they are unbeaten in the league and currently 9 points clear at the top of the Primeira Liga. Mendes has started 18 games for Sporting CP this season and is under contract. However, they might be forced to cash in on him if an offer comes as they intend to raise funds amid the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the Daily Mail, Manchester United and Liverpool are keeping tabs on Mendes as both clubs are on the lookout for left-backs to provide competition for the likes of Luke Shaw and Andy Robertson respectively.

Liverpool vs Chelsea preview – Klopp and Tuchel rivalry renewed

The heat of the race for the top 4 places of the 2020/21 Premier League season continues to heighten as Chelsea travel to face Liverpool at Anfield on Thursday. Both sides have experienced dramatic changes since their last meeting. The Reds are now a shadow of their former in-form self while the Blues are under a new manager in Thomas Tuchel and are seemingly thriving under him. Liverpool's form at Anfield in the Premier League has been terrible, to say the least, as they've failed to win in their last 6 home games. They've scored just twice in those games and have lost 4 and drawn 2. The 4 losses were consecutive and were in their most recent home matches. Chelsea's season has also taken a turn under German manager Thomas Tuchel as they're yet to lose a game since he assumed the ...

Klopp is frustrated with Liverpool’s transfer policy

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly growing frustrated with the club's owners FSG and their transfer policy after they refused to okay a January move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly. The Reds have suffered a crisis in defense this season and it has contributed to their recent struggles and hampered their chances of defending their title. The likes of Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, and Joel Matip may not play any part in the ongoing season. The Reds chose to make moves for Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies in cut-price deadline day deals last month although none have played for the Reds since their arrival amid home defeats to Brighton and Manchester City. Jurgen Klopp is not happy that his request for Koulibaly was snubbed and this has been made known in a report by The Sun. A...

Rashford won’t be as clinical as Edinson Cavani

Marcus Rashford has been one of the key players for Manchester United under Solskjaer this season. However, his inconsistency in front of goal has seen him receive criticisms occasionally. Man United icon Andy Cole has stated that he does not think that the forward is clinical enough to lead the line for the Red Devils. This is coming although Rashford already has 16 goals this season. Despite the numbers, he still remains profligate and this was the case in the game against Everton at Old Trafford where he missed two big chances. The match eventually ended 3 all, a result that saw them fall behind in points in the race for the Premier League title.

Anfield – From fortress to a bane of the Reds

We know that injuries play a major part in how a team performs and this has been the case for a lot of teams in Europe this season. However, what has happened to Liverpool, the defending champions of the Premier League? Pep Guardiola and his men even in the absence of key men in Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne went to Anfield, saw, and conquered by thrashing Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool 4:1. Although Man City were favorites for a win, no one expected such a scoreline. And more so because it was a game that would decide the title contention fate of the Reds. We could say that Liverpool are out of the title race as they currently trail the Citizens by 10 points, with the latter in red hot form and with a game in hand. In fact, the Reds are closer to falling out of the top 4 than they ...

Liverpool are no longer superhuman

Peter Crouch has admitted that Liverpool are no longer superhuman and that they've become over-reliant on Mohammed Salch for those needed moments of inspiration during a game. The Egypt international was key in their last two victories against Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham but was locked out against Brighton and Hove Albion at Anfield on Wednesday. It was thought that the Reds had gotten their mojo back after those two games only for Brighton to make a mockery of their invincibility status at Anfield. This was the second Premier League loss at Anfield this season as Burnley won there with the same scoreline some weeks back. The Reds have been far from superhuman in recent times, having also dropped points against the likes of West Brom, Newcastle, and Southampton. “They we...
