Brendan Rodgers credits Palace loss as the catalyst for Liverpool's good form

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says he was always confident his players would turn around their poor early season Premier League form. Brendan Rodgers admits Liverpool's defeat to Crystal Palace in November convinced him to change tactics to overcome the Reds' indifferent start of the season. Liverpool made a stuttering to start to the 2014-15 campaign -- losing three of their first five Premier League matches and seven of their 19 league fixtures before the turn of the year -- but have recovered to remain in the hunt for a place in next year's Champions League competition. The Reds have been in fine form since Christmas, having...

Coutinho driving Liverpool's rapid rise

Philippe Coutinho has been tremendous this season for Liverpool. FC Insider panel: Top 25 players under age 25 Three months ago, Liverpool looked like a lost cause in the Premier League title race. The team had just been eliminated from the Champions League tournament, and sat in ninth place in the Premier League table heading into a matchup with rival Manchester United on Dec. 14. At that point, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers made the change to a 3-4-3 formation, and while the team initially stumbled in a 3-0 defeat to United, the players quickly rebounded, took ownership of their new roles and have seen almost remarkable results since. Liverpool is now unbeaten in its past 11 Premier League games, and ranks third in the Premier League with 21 goals scored in that time period. Leading the attack is 22-year-old Brazilian international Philippe Coutinho, who recently signed with Liverpool through the 2020 season. Coutinho has led the team in attacking-half touches throughout its unbeaten run and the attacker's efficiency and vision in the attack has led Liverpool from the middle of the Premier League table to a fifth-place position; according to SPI the team now has a 44 percent chance of finishing in the top four, just three percentage points behind the United team that last defeated them. How impactful has Coutinho been? Here's a look at how his role has changed since the beginning of the season, what he brings to Liverpool and how he can maintain his form through the rest of the season. What's changed for Coutinho? When Rodgers moved into a 3-4-3 formation, he shifted Coutinho from a central attacking midfield role into a left forward position. This move let him receive the ball in less crowded areas, which allowed the Brazilian to process everything in front of him before quickly being closed down in a more crowded central area. It also gave Coutinho the option to cut inside on his natural right foot, and still utilize the creativity and decision-making that made him an above-average central midfielder. ...

Liverpool must be wary of post-City letdown versus Burnley

ESPN FC's Paul Mariner gives his take on Liverpool's best options at right wing-back following the news that Jordon Ibe will be sidelined with a knee ligament injury. Having defeated second-place Manchester City at Anfield on Sunday, Liverpool now turn their attention to a side at the other end of the table as third-from-bottom Burnley make the short trip to Merseyside. On paper this looks a much easier game for Brendan Rodgers' in-form side, but after their energy-sapping efforts in beating City, the Reds must now guard against complacency. Burnley cannot be taken lightly as they're a much tougher opponent than their lowly league position suggests, and they've...
