Jordan Henderson has unfinished business with Chelsea

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson has unfinished business with Chelsea as the 2014 defeat to Jose Mourinho’s side which sank their Premier League title bid still hurts. The suspended England midfielder could only watch helplessly from the stand as the top-of-the-table Reds’ 2-0 reverse at Anfield ended an 11-match winning run and handed the initiative to eventual champions Manchester City . Brendan Rodgers’ side then threw away a 3-0 lead to draw with Crystal Palace as they over-attacked in an attempt to improve a goal difference inferior to City’s – but…

Simon Mignolet insists Liverpool’s multi-faceted threat this season mean comparisons with the 2014 title stumble at home to Chelsea are pointless. Sunday’s visit of Chelsea , almost exactly five years since Jose Mourinho’s team derailed the Reds’ title bid with a 2-0 win at Anfield, has resulted in parallels being drawn with the last time the Merseysiders were in contention for the Premier League. But Mignolet, in goal for that game and one of only three Reds’ survivors along with Jordan Henderson and Daniel Sturridge, stressed the circumstances are entirely…

Naby Keita on scoring goals, improving form & giving everything for the Liverpool cause

Naby Keita has rediscovered form and confidence after two goals in two games and Liverpool might now see the best of him more consistently. At the turn of the year, the No. 8 looked to be getting into a groove, playing well and appearing regularly. Without warning, it seemed, Keita was back on the bench and barely used, a surprising omission not just from starting lineups but often even as a substitute in matches. Of late, though, he has turned matters around: a start and goal against Southampton , followed…
