Poor Decision Making All Round For The Reds On Derby Day

Poor Decision Making All Round For The Reds On Derby Day

79% of possession, 23 shots and 12 corners and yet somehow, Liverpool came away with just a point against The Ev. Jurgen Klopp delivered a roll of the dice before kick-off, opting to demote Philippe Coutinho and Bobby Firmino to the bench in favour of Dominic Solanke and Oxlade-Chamberlain. A double pivot of Henderson and Milner raised some eyebrows, too. Still, there was more than enough firepower out on the field to expose a youthful looking Everton back line. Mohamed …

Player Ratings As Liverpool Squander Three Points in the Merseyside Derby

Liverpool drew 1-1 in the Merseyside Derby, dominating their local rivals from start to finish but failing to show it via the score-line. Mohamed Salah got himself on the score-sheet again for his 19th goal of the season, equalling his tally for the entire of last season at Roma, with a stunning solo effort prior to the first-half interval. In truth, Jurgen Klopp's side should really been out of sight by the second-half but a lack of cutting edge saw …

Loris Karius - 6 Didn't have all that much to do due to the brilliance of Liverpool's front four. However, there was one shaky moment in the first-half for the German goalkeeper who rushed off his line to close down a promising Spartak attack - a rather reckless decision albeit one that resulted in a free-kick due to an offside call. Alberto Moreno - 7 Wasn't particularly troubled down the left-hand side by the Spartak attack as he continued to …

Oxlade Chamberlain: Shrugging off irrational criticism to prove his worth to Liverpool

Football fans as a whole love to criticise players right from the get-go, as was the case when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in the summer. Moving from Arsenal for a reported fee of £35million, he was labelled a flop after failing to catch the eye after coming on as a sub. Question marks were raised about the club’s investment in the Englishman given his eye-opening injury record and severe lack of contributions in the final third. Said question marks were …
Dominic Solanke: Liverpool's Something Different

Dominic Solanke: Liverpool's Something Different

Dominic Solanke was given his first Premier League start in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Stoke City in midweek, replacing Roberto Firmino upfront as Jurgen Klopp shook his side up to contend with an increasingly gruelling fixture list and it proved to be a chance well taken from the former-Chelsea man. Deployed through the middle, Solanke showed huge flexibility at the Bet365 stadium, with an interchanging of positions between him, Mane and Chamberlain adding an extra unpredictability to the forward line. …

Observations as Liverpool let 3-0 Lead Slip away to Sevilla

Liverpool made the perfect start to their crucial game against Sevilla on Tuesday night, with Roberto Firmino netting inside just two minutes. Quickly followed by a carbon-copy goal from Sadio Mane, the away side ensured their dominance was reflected via the score-line. With confidence flowing and Sevilla distinctly lacking quality, Firmino's non-look pass added insult to injury before the break to put The Reds firmly in the driving seat. Despite such a strong division in quality during the first forty-five …
