Liverpool's future at goalkeeper may not currently be on their books

Shaka Hislop assesses Liverpool's current goalkeeping situation and identifies potential targets for a summer move to Anfield.

There's a saying in the NFL that if you have two quarterbacks then you have none. The same applies to goalkeepers. There are exceptions of course, but most successful teams have a top goalkeeper who is a clear and undisputed No. 1.

Liverpool are edging closer to becoming a successful team again and solving the uncertainty that surrounds their goalkeeping position could be the biggest remaining hurdle to overcome. They have a top quality attack led by centre-forward Roberto Firmino, they've just...

Can and Wijnaldum find their bite as Liverpool midfield bares its teeth

Jurgen Klopp says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is thriving in midfield.

Liverpool fans continue to bask in the afterglow of an impressive 4-3 victory over league leaders Manchester City.

Much was made of the contributions from the forwards, all receiving high praise. There were also tributes to the increasing importance of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, a player whose £40 million purchase was initially greeted with puzzlement.

He was given the midfield place recently vacated by Philippe Coutinho. It'll take more than one goal and impressive performance to erase...

Meet Gelson Martins, the Liverpool target who adored Robinho

Shaka Hislop and Ross Dyer sift through the latest transfer rumours from around world football, including Man City's chances of landing West Brom's Jonny Evans.

There are two teams called Benfica in Lisbon. One is SL Benfica, the Portuguese champions famous around the globe. The other is CF Benfica, a tiny club established about three decades later in 1933, known locally as Fofo and totally unrelated to the Eagles.

If fact, CF could claim to be the true bearers of the name, because they are actually situated in the Benfica district. It is a relatively poor area, heavily populated by immigrants, and thus CF Benfica offer an opportunity to the kids who polish...

Liverpool need reinforcements but finding suitable fits will be tricky

Stewart Robson takes a closer look at Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's performance against Manchester City and asks whether he can be the long-term replacement for Coutinho.

Sunday's pulsating performance and victory against Manchester City was the perfect answer from Liverpool's players to those who questioned whether they would have enough to cope without the recently departed Philippe Coutinho.

Despite losing a key player, Jurgen Klopp had seemed incredibly relaxed and confident in the build-up to the City game, and after seeing the way his team went out and performed we now know why. Liverpool's first XI has more than enough quality to absorb the loss of the Brazilian,...

Former Liverpool defender Steve Nicol describes his wave of emotions and explains what Jurgen Klopp's side did right in their win over Man City.
Pep Guardiola congratulated Liverpool on their victory against Man City, but said his players got too involved in the Anfield atmosphere.
Jurgen Klopp says Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is developing well at Liverpool because he is playing in his 'dream' midfield role.

With Liverpool's 4-3 victory over Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp consolidated his status as Pep Guardiola's nemesis.

No manager who has managed more than 10 matches against Guardiola has a better record than Klopp, with the German boss winning six of their 12 meetings -- a superior record than such luminaries as Jose Mourinho.

Klopp and Guardiola's rivalry started in the Bundesliga -- at Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich respectively -- and has been renewed in the Premier League with their contrasting...

There were many reactions to Liverpool's often brilliant but ultimately nerve-wracking win against Manchester City on Sunday.

The most interesting was a tweet by former manager Roy Evans, who wittily remarked "I do like 4-3 as long as we win."

He was referencing his 1996 success against Newcastle by the same score, a game often called the greatest Premier League match of all.

Newcastle weren't the runaway leaders City are today, although they had been earlier in the season. They became renowned...
