Liverpool must exorcise the ‘home loss’ demon against Newcastle

Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool finally returned to winning ways in their last Premier League game at Anfield, beating Aston Villa 2:1. The German tactician has backed his side to make it to the Champions League places although he admitted that they are under pressure. Liverpool welcome a recently resurgent Newcastle United to Anfield on Saturday and the Reds must prove that they've exorcised the losses demon at Anfield that has seen them lose even to the worst teams at home in the Premier League in recent weeks. Today's game offers them the opportunity to prove that the win against Aston Villa was not a fluke and that they are intent on returning Anfield to its former status as one of the most difficult grounds for visiting teams in world football.

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...

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.

Mohamed Salah – Stealing the spotlight from the Premier League’s big money attackers

Liverpool appear to be one of the clubs that hit a gold mine in the summer transfer window going by proceedings on the pitch so far this season. They hardly dominated the news in the jostle for big money stars like their Premier League rivals but settled for Mohamed Salah as one of their attacking masterminds, and Voila! a great move it was! The Egyptian may have started the season in less clinical fashion but has grown into the Premier League and has been ravaging opposition defenses with goals domestically as well as in the big one, the UEFA Champions League.

Liverpool spoiling English fun in the 2017/18 UCL so far

  The Match Day 2 of the 2017/18 UCL round of matches has come and gone with much excitement and nerve-wracking moments. However, this piece focuses on the performance of the Premier League clubs in the competition thus far. Talking about nerve-wracking, our guess is that fans of Chelsea and Liverpool can attest to that. The only difference is that one side left it late and stole maximum points from a very difficult ground, while the other side conspired to falter yet again.
