Observations from Liverpool's humiliation of Watford

Observations from Liverpool's humiliation of Watford

There's no more of this joint top of the league shit. After the emphatic win against Watford at Anfield the Reds are now a point clear at the top as we head into yet another unnecessary International break. It's the first time we've been able to say we're top of the league since May 2014. Hopefully it's a better outcome this time around. It was a joy to watch Liverpool dismantle a Watford side, who before their trip to Anfield hadn't conceded …
Observations from Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace

Observations from Liverpool's win at Crystal Palace

It was billed as Benteke v Liverpool; the striker’s first game against his former club after his ill-fated move to Anfield lasted just one season. As it transpired, he was nearly as peripheral here as he was for his former club, despite Palace scoring from crosses. Instead, this was a game that emphasised both sides of this Liverpool team – some irresistible attacking play that resulted in four goals and defensive vulnerability in conceding two, but here are my observations …
Analysing Sturridge's Performance Against Spurs

Analysing Sturridge's Performance Against Spurs

Nothing is certain in live apart from death, taxes and Liverpool fans discussing Daniel Sturridge's future. There seems to be no middle ground when it comes to the goal scorer supreme. One week he's the only player in the Premier League capable of rivalling Sergio Aguero for the title of most lethal player in England and the next week the same people are proclaiming he'd find it difficult to get a start in any of the top 10 sides in …
Observations from Liverpool's the win against Spurs

Observations from Liverpool's the win against Spurs

The win against Spurs means Liverpool are not only through to the next round of the EFL Cup, they're also now undefeated in 10 matches in all competitions. It was a completely different Liverpool to the side that beat WBA on Saturday with Klopp making eleven changes. Not only were the personnel different but so too was the system; gone was the 433 and in its place was the return of the diamond. The German also reunited Divock Origi and Daniel …
Observations From Liverpool's Win Against West Brom

Observations From Liverpool's Win Against West Brom

Joint top of the Premier League. It's been a while since Liverpool fans been able to say that but, for 24 hours at least, you're able to say it. A mesmerising display in the first-half was enough to put the Reds top of the table. Yes, the second-half plateaued a little but the damage was done in the opening 45 minutes. There were plenty of positives to be taken from the match and here are just a few: Liverpool put the …
Observations from Liverpool's draw United

Observations from Liverpool's draw United

It wasn't what the majority had hoped to witness but the Reds finally ended United's winning streak at Anfield on Monday night. It didn't go to plan. Liverpool didn't blitz their bitter rivals. They didn't get revenge on Mourinho for 2013/14. But they did successfully manage to highlight just how one dimensional the special one actually is. As someone on Twitter said, United have gone from beating teams 8-2 to using that as a formation. Liverpool should have anticipated this but they failed …
Observations from Liverpool's comeback win against Swansea

Observations from Liverpool's comeback win against Swansea

Four consecutive weekends now. That's how long Liverpool have resisted the urge to ruin my weekend. Life is good. I could get used to being able to watch Match of the Day safely in the knowledge we've taken 3 points away from our match. Not since 2013/14 have fans been afforded such a luxury and even then it wasn't so early on in the season. It's not like we're taking it for granted either, the win at the Liberty was …
Observations from Liverpool's demolition of Hull City

Observations from Liverpool's demolition of Hull City

Ruthless, relentless, rampant and destructive. You can't help but love Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool these days. An utterly dominant performance against Hull saw the Reds run out 5-1 winners in a match that saw the home side in complete control from the first minute. It would've been a perfect performance had they not gifted Hull a goal. James Milner's poor touch under no pressure lead to the corner and for some reason Meyler was able to lash the ball home from …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Derby

Observations from Liverpool's win against Derby

It was unnerving watching Liverpool against Derby but not in the way Liverpool fans have come to expect when facing lower league opposition. It was a professional job by the Reds. There weren't many, if any, scares defensively, there was no complacency from anybody in the team and, in the end, it was an assured 3-0 victory. This isn't what we, as Liverpool fans, are used to. In the past, these have been the matches we make hard work of …
Observations from Liverpool's win against Chelsea

Observations from Liverpool's win against Chelsea

The Reds, as they so often tend to do, made hard work of what should've been a pretty straight forward situation. A hard fought 2-1 victory at Stamford Bridge is something to savour, but had Liverpool maintained their concentration levels throughout it could've, and should've, been much more comfortable and I wouldn't have had to watch, rather awkwardly, with one eye closed for the final 25 minutes. But a win is a win and Liverpool have now taken 10 points …
