Key Stats from Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

Liverpool vs Brighton – The Key Stats The Reds won 5-1 on the South Coast to move 4th in the Premier League, but which stats (or sets of stats), stood out for me? Coutinho Samba Whilst Coutinho’s two main stats in this game speak for themselves – one goal and three assists – his underlying stats are exceptional too. Three chances created is very good anyway, but the fact that that culminated in an xA of 0.93 is fantastic; comfortably …
Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …
Why do the Benitez Worshippers Have it in for Klopp?

Why do the Benitez Worshippers Have it in for Klopp?

Despite Liverpool actually doing fairly well this season, some of the negativity surrounding the team would make you think they are in Everton’s current plight. It hasn’t been a memorable campaign so far, and some nights have been ruined by poor displays and late capitulations, but just one defeat in 13 matches suggests the Reds are progressing nicely. They have won four of their last five Premier League games, at an aggregate score of 14-2, and only Willian’s lucky late …
Praise for Klopp, There's a Reason he Picks the Team!

Praise for Klopp, There's a Reason he Picks the Team!

I've criticised Jurgen Klopp quite often this season, in all honesty. I like the guy, I think he's pretty much everything I want in terms of how I'd like a Liverpool manager to act and conduct himself, he 'gets it'. Part of that, is probably what makes me criticise him more than I should. I want him to be perfect, so every minor - and major - blemish is under the microscope. Sometimes he selects players I don't think he …

Liverpool recorded back to back wins on the road as the Reds put 5 past a hapless Brighton defence. There were many bright spots on the Reds' side, but below are the major takeaways from the game: The defence Illness issues to Gomez meant the already depleted Liverpool defence was weakened even further, so it was interesting to see how Klopp was going to handle the latest blow.

Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

Have Liverpool Learned How To Close?

With an 83rd minute Suarez-esque strike that left Stoke’s centre-backs with heads in hands, Mo Salah broke through yet another barrier for Liverpool. This mark though might have gone unnoticed amongst the Egyptian’s long list of accolades. More than one-third of the way into the season, the Reds have tallied 28 goals, third most in the league, but only this latest among them came in the last 10 minutes of any match. In comparison, former Red, Raheem Sterling already has …
Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Has Jurgen Klopp finally started to get the hang of rotation? Or is this another false dawn? Against Chelsea, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were rested, as Klopp made some big changes from the side that drew with Sevilla. Then against Stoke, Klopp left Phil Coutinho and Mo Salah out of the starting line-up. There has also been rotation in midfield, as Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner were rotated whilst Emre Can suffered a niggling injury. With Can returning, both …

Another Mo Show I really am becoming a broken record now... When Mohamed Salah stepped onto the pitch in the second-half, Liverpool were struggling to contend with the increasing pressure of the home side.

Five Defenders to Fix Liverpool - #3 Issa Diop

Five Defenders to Fix Liverpool - #3 Issa Diop

If there are any football fans out there who haven’t yet become aware of Liverpool’s need for an improvement in the heart of the defence, then they are likely living in a willful ignorance of the kind that Liverpool fans can only dream of. Instead, for those clad in Red, a recurring “head in hands” moment becomes more and more grating with repetition – a knack to concede silly goals pervades a side that’s finally clicking into gear and attacking …
