Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke can boost Liverpool's home form

Daniel Sturridge, left, and Christian Benteke, right, have started just once together for Liverpool.

Liverpool welcome Bordeaux to Anfield for Thursday night's Europa League clash with two clear objectives in mind.

First and foremost, the hosts will want to secure qualification to the knockout stages of the competition by winning the game but, secondly, they will also be looking to do it in convincing fashion to start the process of getting their home form back to where it needs to be.

For too long now Liverpool have struggled on home turf, but with confidence soaring following Saturday's stunning...

Liverpool must avoid getting carried away with Manchester City result

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into Liverpool's dominating performance against Manchester City.

Will the real Liverpool please stand up? Saturday's excellent 4-1 win at Manchester City has a lot of fans suddenly aiming for the stars again. What a difference from the woes of the 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Nov. 8.

Monday's blog by David Usher was a case in point. Passionate and well argued, as always, it raised anxious eyebrows among the pessimistic branch of Liverpool's fan base.

An article on the Internet cannot affect events, yet some believe in football voodoo, where optimism triggers...

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp learns Scouse with the help of a friend

Having already seen off the likes of Chelsea and Man City in recent weeks, you could argue that Jurgen Klopp doesn't really warrant much more help when it comes to settling into his new life at Anfield.

However, aware that the local Scouse accent and dialect can be a bit of a challenge to foreign ears, the club sent one of their youngest assistants, 9-year-old fan Isaac, to help Klopp master the basics.

Roberto Firmino starred in Jurgen Klopp's pressing game at Man City

Liverpool stunned Manchester City as Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino powered Liverpool to a 4-1 win.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Coutinho and Firmino's absence from international duty was a big help to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp once described counter-pressing as the best playmaker there is in football, and that principle proved its credibility in Liverpool's 4-1 drubbing of Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday. The Reds pressed from the off and were 3-0 up after 33 minutes that, for City's part, must go down as one of the most error-strewn spells of play in the Premier League this season. If anything, the hosts were lucky to only be 3-1 down at half-time, having shown a bewildering lack of concentration.

Liverpool should aim top four or higher as Jurgen Klopp plans take root

Liverpool stunned Manchester City as Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino powered Liverpool to a 4-1 win.
Liverpool stunned Manchester City as Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino powered Liverpool to a 4-1 win.
ESPN FC's Paul Mariner says Man City had no answer to Liverpool's energy levels in their 4-1 thrashing at the Etihad.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says he has never seen his team play like the way they did against Liverpool.

Liverpool's stunning 4-1 demolition of Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday was a real statement victory for Jurgen Klopp's side. The question is: What was the statement? Was this Liverpool showing that they are right back in the hunt for a Champions League spot, or were they laying down a marker for another unlikely title challenge like the one they put in two years ago?

It's easy to scoff at the latter suggestion in particular; the Reds currently sit ninth in the table and have some obvious...

FC Talking Points: Benitez's future, Klopp's Liverpool, MLS Cup, Serie A

The ESPN FC crew discuss who should shoulder the blame for their poor performance, and eventual loss, against Barcelona.

Football always inspires debate, and this weekend was no exception. Here are five burning questions on the ESPN FC radar.

Vote and comment below or on Twitter using the hashtag #FCtalkingpoints.

Barcelona humiliated Real Madrid at the Bernabeu in the season's first Clasico. Luis Enrique's team handed Rafa Benitez & Co. a 4-0 drubbing, largely without the help of Lionel Messi, who only came on as a substitute in the 57th minute when the game was largely in hand.

Is it already time for Benitez to go from Real?

Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool...
