Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool have played two Premier League games in 2017 and drawn both. Both games were away from home. Both games were a case of the Reds having lost two points, having been ahead for a good part of the games. Jurgen Klopp's men will be back to the happier surrounds of Anfield, when Swansea come visiting on Saturday. By kickoff, it would have been more than a year since the Reds last lost a game at home, and with the …

Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

It wasn't like the game at Anfield earlier this season. It was a Liverpool vs United game that lived up to its billing. Yes, it was short of quality on a few occasions, but the pluck and frenzy of a derby was there for all to see. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late header cancelled out Milner's first-half penalty, but Liverpool will be disappointed not to have shut the game out as they had plenty of chances before Zlatan popped up with the …

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a far from ideal way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool put on one of their worst displays under Jurgen Klopp in the 1-0 semifinal first-leg loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton. Liverpool are very lucky to still be in that tie, but now the focus should switch to the Premier League and to their fierce rivals. United are on a fantastic run of form - they have won eight games in …
EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

EFL Cup Semi-Final Preview: Reds Look to Bounce Back

It has not been the best start to 2017 for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool. In the 2 games that the Reds have played, they have had two draws. The first one - a 2-2 stalemate at Sunderland - might be excusable, given that it kicked off less than 48 hours after a taxing game against Manchester City. But Sunday's goalless draw in the FA Cup against Plymouth Argyle is inexcusable. Even with the much-changed team, Liverpool should be beating Plymouth. So, …
Liverpool 4 Stoke 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 Stoke 1 - Player Ratings

Liverpool put in a strong display at Anfield against Stoke, as the Potters were dispatched, in a 4-1 victory. Jon Walters gave Stoke an early lead before Adam Lallana and Roberto Firmino sent Liverpool into the break the happier side. A Gianelli Imbula own goal and Daniel Sturridge's first Premier League goal of the season ensured that the Reds spread festive cheer all around Anfield. Stoke did trouble the Reds in the opening 20 minutes, but Jurgen Klopp's men soon …
Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

Liverpool v Stoke City Preview: Key Battles

For the first time in six years Liverpool don't play a game on Boxing Day. In 2010 it was only because bad weather didn't allow a game at Blackpool, that the Reds not play on 26th December. But this time the revenue and the money from television has given the fixtures a spin, and the tradition of all ten teams playing on Boxing Day has been discontinued. Instead, the Reds welcome Stoke City to Anfield on the 27th, in the first of …

Everton v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It doesn't get much bigger than this. Well maybe it does, for Liverpool, but definitely not for Everton. Derby day is among the most special of the season and this time, both sides head into the big day in good spirits. The Blues arrested an awful run of form with a big win against Arsenal on Tuesday and Liverpool won their first game in three with a clinical display at the Riverside Stadium against Middlesbrough. But as the old cliche …

Middlesbrough 0 Liverpool 3 - Player Ratings

Liverpool returned to winning ways with a first win at the Riverside Stadium since 2002.  A brace from Adam Lallana and a Divock Origi goal brought the Reds a first win in three games. Jurgen Klopp would have wanted a response from his side after far from ideal results against Bournemouth and West Brom and the team delivered with a slick display of attacking football, especially in the second-half. Simon Mignolet - 7 This game was a tribute to the …
Middlesbrough vs Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

Middlesbrough vs Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

After getting only one point in the last two games, despite scoring five goals in those games, Liverpool head to the North-East to face Middlesbrough at the Riverside. The Reds last visit to Boro's home was a forgettable one in February 2009, as they lost 2-0 in a loss that cost them ground in the title race that season. Right now, Boro are struggling to show goals. With 13 goals in their 15 games they are the league's lowest scorers. …
Liverpool v West Ham Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v West Ham Preview - Key Battles

After the implosion at Bournemouth, the Reds are back in Premier League action at Anfield. This time, the visitors are West Ham United. The Hammers themselves are in terrible form. They don't have a win in their last six games in all competitions. Since beating Chelsea 2-1 in the 4th round of the EFL Cup, Slaven Bilic's men have had two draws and four losses. They seemed to be getting back on track with a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford but …
