Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against West Brom

No type of win betters Liverpool's deserved 1-0 win over West Brom on Sunday. Hammering sides often can be very entertaining for the impartial - but there is nothing more satisfying than the wins where it requires a dogged mentality, determination and grit. The Reds coped through adversity in a nerve-wracking finale; which just goes to show that Liverpool are beginning to notch up 'ugly' wins; having previously being criticised for trying to be too entertaining and not divulging any …

Observations from Liverpool's 1-0 win over West Brom

The end is near, isn't it? Liverpool were barely troubled by any West Bromwich Albion set-piece. Liverpool scored off a set-piece against West Brom. But, the bigger picture is crucial. It was another massive win for the Reds in the race for the top four, as they eked out a 1-0 victory. This was the first time that Liverpool had won at The Hawthorns in ages. Here are the main talking points from the game, as Liverpool went back up …
Bold Klopp & His Risky Substitutions Pay Off

Bold Klopp & His Risky Substitutions Pay Off

One of the things that Jürgen Klopp is often criticised for is his substitutions. Klopp sometimes leaves his substitutions quite late in games and indeed often only makes one change, even when his team is losing. Whilst this has been the case throughout Klopp’s career, his decision to only make one change against Bournemouth has put this back into the forefront of people’s minds, especially given that Daniel Sturridge was an unused sub. Klopp’s rationality for this is twofold: he …

Observations from Liverpool's fight back to beat Stoke

Liverpool's starting eleven was indicative of a side battling several injuries to key players, with Ben Woodburn and Trent Alexander-Arnold replacing Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho in the side. The Brazilian pair have both been struggling of late with fitness and illness issues respectively. It was always going to be a tough game for the Reds but the lineup hardly filled fans with optimism going into a must-win game in the battle for a top four spot. That fear was …

Observations following Liverpool's 2-2 draw with Bournemouth

Here we are, yet again. For all their attacking prowess and verve, Liverpool's abysmal record against teams in the bottom half of the Premier League table never looked like changing against Bournemouth. An early mistake from Georginio Wijnaldum was indicative of the Reds' start, with the team wasteful and wayward in possession. Goals either side of half-time from Philippe Coutinho and Divock Origi seemed to have clawed Liverpool back into the driving seat and on their way to another precious …

Observations from Liverpool's 1-1 draw at the Etihad

Liverpool’s 1-1 draw with Manchester City at the Etihad is one of those results which divides fans. If you’re a glass half-full type of person then it’s a point gained away to a rival and a positive performance to go alongside it. If you’re a little more cynical then it’s two points dropped in the hunt for Champions League football and there are concerns over the team’s mentality. The Reds started off slowly but grew into the game and became …

Observations from Liverpool's win over Burnley

It was as though Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp, and the players, set out to troll the fans today. The 2-1 win over Burnley was by no means pretty but three points are three points no matter how you pick them up. At the end of the day, the team did what they had to do to pick up the all-important victory. As the game headed into first-half added time it was as though the players had read the majority of drafts …

Liverpool were back to their Dr Jekyll best in the 3-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday evening. It came in the same week Mr Hyde had made an appearance at the King Power stadium as Leicester vanquished some of their demons and put a dent in our top four challenge. The Reds hosted Arsenal knowing a defeat could leave their Champions League hopes dangling by a thread, but like so often this season they effortlessly brushed aside one of their …

Observations from Liverpool's 3-1 defeat to Leicester City

What can you say really that hasn’t been said before? Liverpool follows up an impressive victory over a top-four rival with a dismal defeat against a team in a relegation battle. The 2-0 win over Spurs is a distant memory now and Jurgen Klopp’s men failed once again to build up some much-needed momentum. Top four looked a shoe-in a few months back but now if Manchester United win their game in hand the Reds fall to sixth in the …

Observations from Liverpool's win against Spurs

So that's what it feels like. A win in the league. The first three points since New Year's Eve when Pep Guardiola's Manchester City got the full Jurgen Klopp treatment. Truth be told it's the first time we've looked like a Klopp side since the turn of the year. The performance against Spurs had everything we'd become accustomed to as Liverpool fans earlier on in the season; hunger, desire, passion, confidence and a bit of swagger thrown in for good …
