2017-18 review: Big wins, improving backline and building blocks

Fri, 18/05/2018 - 10:40

In his latest guest column for Liverpoolfc.com, Andrew Beasley shows us the numbers that prove the progress made under Jürgen Klopp across the past two Premier League seasons...

2016-17 2017-18

While Klopp and the Liverpool squad are preparing for the Champions League final in Kiev, with the 2017-18 Premier League campaign now complete we can see what progress has been made – both this season and over the longer term.

The most important achievement is securing Champions League football for next season. It’s the first time Liverpool have claimed a place in Europe’s premier club competition for two successive campaigns since 2007-08 and 2008-09.

The Reds have displayed a consistent level of performance not seen since that time over the last two seasons, too. By following up the 76-point haul of the previous term with 75 this, Liverpool have amassed their second-best two-season points tally in the Premier League era.

Liverpool's best two season point tallies in the 38 game PL era.

Klopp’s team may not have sustained a title challenge in either campaign, but the foundation of consistency, in the form of taking two points per game for two years, suggests the building blocks are in place for a crack at bringing home title No.19 in the near future.

With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, and especially Mohamed Salah in fabulous goalscoring form in 2017-18, it was Liverpool’s fearsome attack which did a lot of the work in powering the Reds into the top four.

The side scored 84 league goals this season, which is Liverpool’s second-best goals-per-game record in their entire top-flight history. That’s no small feat given it was their 103rd campaign in England’s top division.

As you would expect from such a high-scoring season, there were lots of matches where the Reds rattled in plenty of goals. When Andy Robertson scored the fourth against Brighton and Hove Albion on the final day of the season, he helped Klopp to equal an attacking record for the club in the modern era.

The 4-0 win over the Seagulls was the 21st time under their current manager that Liverpool have scored four or more goals in a league match. That equals the club’s Premier League record, held by Rafael Benitez, though the Spaniard had more than twice as many games in charge as Klopp has had to date.

It was also the 11th time the Reds have won a league game by at least four goals on Jürgen’s watch. That draws the German level alongside Roy Evans and Brendan Rodgers for big-scoring league wins, and while he is four behind Benitez, who would bet against Klopp’s Liverpool breaking that record next season?

It wasn’t just a season for big wins by Liverpool standards either. Of the Reds’ 21 league wins this season, 13 were by at least three goals. This gave them the highest proportion of wins by three or more goals by any top-flight side since 1936. You always want your team to win more matches than they do, but when they got it right this season, Liverpool got it really right.

Not that the improvement has only taken place at the front end of the team. The Reds conceded 38 league goals this season, picking up 17 clean sheets along the way, and these were their best defensive figures on both fronts since 2009-10. But for three-quarters of the campaign, Liverpool’s backline was performing at elite levels.

In the early weeks of 2017-18, Klopp’s side had a number of league matches where their opponents scored several goals. Within the first nine games, the Reds conceded three at Watford, five at Manchester City and four at Tottenham Hotspur.

However, for the 29 matches following their defeat at Wembley, Liverpool only conceded 22 league goals, which is the fewest of any team in the division across that period. Their tally of 14 clean sheets in that spell was the most in the Premier League, too.

They also defended set-pieces better than they have in recent times. Klopp’s men conceded just eight league goals from set-plays, and only five sides in the division conceded fewer. More pertinently, it was the fewest a Liverpool side has let in across the past eight campaigns.

The challenge is now to sustain this defensive improvement across the whole of next season, but equally it’s not a short-term burst of impressive form. It’s a high level of defensive solidity across seven months, and the rate of 0.76 goals per game conceded in that time has only been bettered by the club in four complete Premier League seasons.

This combination of power at both ends of the field has enabled the Reds to dominate matches to extents rarely seen in recent times. In total, Liverpool led for 1,517 minutes in 2017-18, which is a tally that has only been beaten 10 times by any club in the Premier League over the past 21 seasons.

Factor in the 482 minutes Liverpool spent trailing, and their net figure for the season was 1,035 minutes in credit. This makes them just the 26th team since 1998 to break the 1,000-minute barrier, which is a sign of how well the team has done this season. It’s no guarantee of success, of course, but 14 of the sides in this bracket won the league that season.

Liverpool's time spent winning, drawing and losing over the past decade. #LFC

The Reds also did pretty well when it came to seeing games out, as they were one of only three teams in the Premier League who didn’t lose a match in which they took the lead. They averaged 2.5 points from the 28 games where they got in front, which was a slight improvement on their 2.4 points per game average last season.

While their record against the top six wasn’t as strong as it was in 2016-17, when Liverpool remained unbeaten, against the rest of the division it was top-notch. Klopp’s team lost only one league match against the bottom 14 sides this season, and Manchester City were the only team who took more points against those clubs.

When narrowing it to matches against teams who finished in the bottom half of the table, Liverpool won 15 of their 20 games and amassed a goal difference of +46. They took the same number of points in 2008-09 and 2013-14, but the impressive goal difference makes this the Reds’ best Premier League season in that regard.

We’d all like to see the Reds win every one of the big games of course, but there are far more matches against teams outside the top six. A strong performance here is imperative in order to achieve the club’s league ambitions, and Klopp undoubtedly has his side on the right track here.

The outcome of the Champions League final will largely determine how 2017-18 is remembered. But win or lose in Kiev, the fine work the manager and his players put into their Premier League campaign this season should not be underestimated or overlooked.

'I've spoken to Modric and Kovacic before the final...'

Fri, 18/05/2018 - 10:00

Croatia cannot lose in the 2018 Champions League final – but Dejan Lovren hopes he can be the pride of his country come May 26.

The Liverpool defender will face international teammates Mateo Kovacic and Luka Modric in Kiev as Jürgen Klopp’s team seek to end Real Madrid’s reign as Europe’s top club and clinch the trophy for a sixth time.

Soon after the Reds booked their place in the showpiece by seeing off AS Roma, 24 hours after the Spaniards secured the other spot, Lovren was in contact with his compatriots.

Having representatives on both sides at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium is cause for Croatian celebration, though Lovren is of course determined to ensure he is the man being toasted back home on the night.

“I have been in touch with my Croatian international teammates Luka Modric and Mateo Kovacic, who play for Real Madrid,” the No.6 told the official Liverpool FC magazine.

“It’s quite an amazing achievement for such a small country of not even four million people that almost every year we have a Croatian international player who can win the final. It’s great for us and for the nation.

“I’m sure the whole nation will be tuning in for the final. I would say more people will be on my side as I haven’t won it before and both these guys have won it the last few times!

“The country is proud of us and in the end we will see who will win it.”

The sense of opportunity for Liverpool is palpable.

A journey that began in Hoffenheim nine months ago has rarely deviated from the path that has guided Klopp’s men all the way to a showdown with the holders.

That the Reds have done so by virtue of a bold, expansive attacking style faithfully deployed by Klopp and expertly transferred to the pitch by his players has only added to the joy surrounding the season and drawn plaudits from every corner.

But Lovren knows a successful evening in Ukraine has to be the highest point, not what went before.

“Reaching the final of the Champions League is a fantastic achievement for the club and also personally. We have grown as the competition has gone on and we know what we need to do to do well in this tournament,” he said.

“Apart from the World Cup final, this is the biggest game you can play in and we are all really looking forward to it. It is something that everyone wants.

“I was dreaming of playing in the final and winning the tournament since I was a boy. Now we have the opportunity. We need to show our character again, show our skills and show the world that we can do it.”

Inside LFC's Marbella camp: Who are Reds' foot-tennis champions?

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 22:01

Liverpool began the first full day of their Marbella training camp with another workout in the sunshine as they gear up for the Champions League final with Real Madrid in Kiev.

After breakfast prepped by club chefs at the team hotel, the Reds squad made the short journey to a local football complex by bicycle to start their day’s work at 10.30am local time.

A two-hour session comprised of physical and tactical drills – and a highly-enjoyable and competitive game of foot-tennis, in which the four-man team of Virgil van Dijk, Alberto Moreno, Danny Ings and Rafa Camacho prevailed over the rest of their teammates.

After biking back to the hotel, the squad enjoyed lunch al fresco style on the terrace, with temperatures on the Costa del Sol comfortably exceeding the mid-20s.

A number of players then took part in afternoon media duties as the club continues to work its way through the thousands – literally – of interview requests that have been placed ahead of the showpiece event in Ukraine on May 26.

Van Dijk, Andy Robertson, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson were among those who spoke to journalists.

Jürgen Klopp also had interview duties, including a sit-down with Anfield legend Jan Molby.

With the manager eager to blend hard work with team bonding, the players were then afforded a leisurely afternoon ahead of a team dinner at 7.30pm local time.

Friday will see a similar routine for the Reds before their return to Merseyside on Saturday evening. Stay tuned to Liverpoolfc.com for all the latest news from the Marbella camp.

LFC Foundation participants meet Gini at Melwood

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 18:22

Two local youngsters were invited to Melwood for a special meet and greet with Georginio Wijnaldum earlier this month, thanks to the LFC Foundation.

Adam Dealaling, 19, and 20-year-old Charlie Eard - who are both participants of the club charity’s Leadership Through Sport and Business (LTSB) apprenticeship scheme - were given the once-in-a-lifetime chance to interview the Reds star as a reward for their outstanding work on the course.

The pair sat down with the No.5 at the training ground, where they spent time chatting about football, career highlights, inspirations and general life advice as well as their involvement with the LFC Foundation and the LTSB scheme.

Adam said: “It’s always been a dream of mine to visit Melwood and meet the players. Gini had some really inspiring advice for us - I’m absolutely ecstatic!”

LTSB’s two-year apprenticeship scheme is designed to help bright youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds establish high-level careers in business, finance and related fields.

Liverpool target Jorginho makes decision on his future

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 17:34

Jorginho could be nearing a move to the Premier League - but it will be Manchester City, rather than Liverpool, which would serve as his next destination.

The Napoli midfielder has been watched by the Reds, with Jurgen Klopp's side a number interested in the Italian international.

But it appears City will bolster their midfield this summer with the 26-year-old's arrival - providing they can agree a deal with the Serie A side.

Jorginho has been one of the standout performers for Napoli as they finished runners-up to Juventus this season, leading to a whole host of top European clubs monitoring him.

With Liverpool looking to boost their midfield options ahead of next season - to go along with the arrival of Naby Keita - Jorginho is one of several names linked.

But the player's agent, Joao Santos, has confirmed he client will head to the Etihad Stadium providing the transfer can be agreed between the two parties.

"Jorginho is still under contract, but if Napoli find an agreement with City then he goes to Manchester,” he reportedly told Calcio Napoli 24 (as translated by TeamTalk).

"Finding an agreement with the English won’t be a problem, considering their importance, but I repeat it depends on Napoli as the player is tied to the Azzurri for two more years.

"City are champions of England and among Europe’s top clubs.

"Now we must stay calm. If Napoli and City find a solution, we can talk about it, otherwise the player will be happy to stay at Napoli.

“For now, I haven’t heard from anyone at Napoli because I imagine they’re busy planning for next season.

“I hope to hear from their director, and maybe he’ll be in Naples in the next few days to talk about Jorginho.”

Ousmane Dembele offered to Liverpool

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 10:44

Barcelona are prepared to sell Ousmane Dembele this summer just a year after he joined the club and are already contacting potential clubs they could sell him to, according to reports.

The French winger – who has been linked with Liverpool recently – moved to Camp Nou from Borussia Dortmund in a deal that could reach £135million, though missed much of the start of his maiden campaign through injury. 

After returning to full fitness he still struggled to hold down a first-team role in Ernesto Valverde’s side, with Philippe Coutinho frequently preferred on the right wing.

And now Spanish radio station RAC1 claim that Barcelona are ready to cut their losses on a player who has netted just three times in La Liga this season. 

Club officials are ready to offload Dembele either as a straight cash transfer or a loan with a mandatory option to buy.

They have already contacted several top European clubs who could afford to pay a similar fee to the £135m Barca paid last summer, and Liverpool are likely to have been one of the clubs they reached out to. 

The Merseysiders have recently been linked with a move for the 21-year-old, with reports in France claiming Jürgen Klopp has been 'obsessed' with Dembele ever since he joined the German’s old club Borussia Dortmund.

Dembele arrived a year after Klopp had already left, and the Liverpool boss could not hide his appreciation for the winger when asked about rumours linking the club with both Dembele and Nabil Fekir.

Liverpool battling PSG for Milan 'keeper Donnarumma

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 10:40

Liverpool are reportedly battling with Paris Saint-Germain for the signature of AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma.

The young stopper has been the subject of intense transfer speculation ever since breaking onto the scene as a 16-year-old, and could leave Italy this summer. 

Manchester United and Jose Mourinho are credited with a long-standing interest in the stopper, but it seems a rival Premier League side is now in pole position.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport claim Liverpool and PSG are best placed to swoop for Donnarumma. 

Milan have often dismissed any suggestion of Donnarumma exiting the club, but the Italians have now softened their stance. 

The Serie A side are willing to listen to offers and have admitted they will not turn down the right bid if it arrived.

"The clubs, if there are any, will make their offers and we’ll see if they satisfy us," Milan sporting director Massimiliano Mirabelli told Sky this week. 

"Donnarumma is part of the future of Italian football, he’s worth a lot. We know the market, and we really think he’s worth a lot. We haven’t budgeted for selling him. 

"We’ll wait and then do what we have to do. That applies to everyone, we want players who want to participate in our project. We want people who are convinced.

"If a player is to leave it takes two things: they have to tell us that, and there has to be a satisfactory offer. 

"We hope he stays with us and it’s the same for other players. If a player comes to us and says he wants to leave, the club he wants will have to satisfy Milan. 

"Donnarumma hasn’t come to us to tell us that he wants to leave. We are working to strengthen the team, not to dismantle it."

Reds considering move for Gianluigi Buffon

Thu, 17/05/2018 - 10:38

Liverpool are pondering a move for Juventus legend Gianluigi Buffon as Jurgen Klopp seeks a new goalkeeper this summer.

That is according to reports in Italy, which say Anfield chiefs are mulling over a swoop for the 40-year-old whose future is uncertain.

Buffon is set to hold a press conference regarding his future on Thursday with rumours he may not hang up his gloves as was initially expected.

And that could open the door for Liverpool, who are looking for another shot-stopper to challenge Loris Karius for the number one spot.

The Reds take on Real Madrid in the Champions League final next week - a competition Buffon has failed to win during his illustrious career.

Klopp: Why I've brought Reds to Marbella training camp

Wed, 16/05/2018 - 22:41

Jürgen Klopp has explained why Liverpool have travelled to Marbella for a training camp ahead of the Champions League final.

The Reds have returned to the venue they first visited back in February, this time for a four-day work out in Spain as they gear up for the clash with Real Madrid in Kiev in May 26.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com after the first session, Klopp said: “It’s about being together, having nothing else to do and not thinking about anything else – and then having a little rest.

“We have a few things to do. We have to time to prepare for the game, which we want to do. We have time to recharge our batteries, and that’s what we’ll do. We’re in a very nice surrounding, but we’re not here because of the weather – it was not the reason to say we don’t go to the south because the weather in England has been good as well – but too many things; too many people want too many things from us in the moment.

“Here, we can close the door when we are in the hotel or on the training ground – and that’s the reason we’re here.

“After one little session, which was mainly a recovery, I know already it was the right decision again.”

James Milner and Emre Can fitness latest

Wed, 16/05/2018 - 22:24

Jürgen Klopp offered the latest on the fitness of James Milner and Emre Can after the duo were included in Liverpool’s squad for a training camp in Marbella.

Milner missed the Reds’ last game against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday as a precautionary measure after sustaining a muscle issue.

Meanwhile, Can has not figured since March 17 versus Watford at Anfield due to a back problem.

After the first session of the four-day camp in Spain, Klopp told Liverpoolfc.com: “James is in the group and will be back in training later – I think on Saturday or so we will see, or maybe Friday.

“Emre is here, that’s good – having him in the group is always good, a fantastic boy. We will see what we can do with him, there’s still a little bit of work to do, but good to have him here.”

Jürgen Klopp: I loved seeing the pride in Trent's eyes

Wed, 16/05/2018 - 21:45

Informing Trent Alexander-Arnold that he had made England's World Cup squad was an 'honour' for Jürgen Klopp, who loved seeing the pride in the right-back's eyes.

Liverpool's manager shared the incredible news with the 19-year-old at John Lennon Airport on Wednesday morning as the Reds prepared to depart for a training camp in Marbella.

Alexander-Arnold joins club colleague Jordan Henderson in Gareth Southgate’s 23-man selection for the Three Lions, with Adam Lallana on the standby list.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com in Marbella, Klopp detailed the moment he made the young defender aware of the "fantastic" honour.

“It is nice, a nice story," Klopp said. "Gareth Southgate gave me a call this morning and told me that I am allowed to tell him, but then I had some press work to do and didn’t have time.

“So, in the bus to the plane, I saw Trent for the first time. I thought maybe he knew already and someone else had called him. I had the honour of telling him and it was nice to see the reaction in his eyes. It’s fantastic, it’s well deserved, what a season. What a season! Can you be too young? No. You can be not good enough – but he is good enough.

“It’s just a wonderful little piece more which makes this season special, even before the last game [against Real Madrid].

“For Adam, it’s a great thing as well. After that season with only three or four games, I don’t think that any other player would have been in the mind of the manager, but Gareth really likes him.

"He is only on standby, OK, but in his situation that’s the best thing. He can train with us and then go to the national team and train there. Then, if anything happens, Gareth Southgate knows he has a fantastic player on standby. 

“Hendo as well, not to forget – our skipper is going to the World Cup and I am happy about that as well!

“All three, well deserved. It’s really nice.”

Trent: How I found out about England World Cup call

Wed, 16/05/2018 - 21:28

Trent Alexander-Arnold has outlined his immense pride at being included in England’s World Cup squad, expressing gratitude to Jürgen Klopp, his Liverpool teammates and his family for helping him achieve the honour.

The 19-year-old was named in Gareth Southgate’s 23-man selection for the tournament on Wednesday afternoon, marking the latest step on a journey that began at the Reds’ Academy aged six.

Alexander-Arnold received the news from Klopp ahead of travelling to Marbella for a four-day training camp ahead of the Champions League final with Real Madrid on May 26.

“I’m honoured, excited and feeling really proud,” he told Liverpoolfc.com in Spain. 

“It was an unbelievable moment to find out I was going to go to the World Cup, especially at a young age. It’s probably capped off a really good season for me.

“I found out this morning, just before we came out to Marbella. The manager came and spoke to me just as we were getting on the plane.

“He asked me if I knew anything about the squad or anything yet. I said, ‘no’ and he said, ‘Have you got anything planned around the time of the World Cup?’ I was like, ‘No, no holidays or anything…’

“He said to me, ‘OK, good… You’re in the squad!’ It was a really proud moment. On England’s behalf, it was nice of them to let the manager tell me.”

News of Alexander-Arnold’s call-up quickly filtered through the Liverpool team plane as they disembarked John Lennon airport for Marbella.

The full-back insisted his meteoric rise wouldn’t have been possible if it hadn’t been for the help and support he’s received from not only the senior set-up at Melwood, but those who enabled him to develop during his days at the Academy.

“The lads have all congratulated me and said really well done,” he continued. “It’s nice to get the recognition from your teammates as well.

“It wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for them, so I have to thank them, the manager and everyone else who has supported me along the way. I have to say a special thanks to everyone, especially my family for helping me get so far.

“Everyone who has been there along the way, even going back to when I was really young, around the age of six.

“Everyone who has played a part, I just want to say thanks to them because without them, I wouldn’t be where I am or who I am today. It’s a thanks to all of them. I hope they can all feel as proud as I do about getting the call up.”

Alexander-Arnold will return to Merseyside on Saturday, where he expects an outpouring of emotion from his relatives.

“They’re just made up," he said. "It’s a really proud moment for everyone in general. I obviously haven’t seen them since I found out, so I think when I go back is when I’ll get my hugs and things off everyone!”
