The game was settled by two beautiful first-half goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah who each continued top-class goalscoring seasons. Here are some talking points from the game: Karius loves St. Mary's Loris Karius's best performance in a Liverpool shirt thus far was in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final last season, and …

Liverpool Player Ratings From Comfortable Saints Win

A morale-boosting win for The Reds after just one win in three league games, and a big weekend in terms of the top four race after Newcastle's win over Manchester United dragged the Red Devils back into the battle.

FSG: Buy A New Club, Not A New Player

Disclaimer: Sorry to disappoint the FSGOut’ers, but this isn’t one of those articles. The boys from Boston will be directing the future for years to come. This is an FSG-Figure-It-Out article pondering possible paths to make the club more competitive while these owners are in place.

Second Coming For Dejan?

Second Coming For Dejan?

Van Dijk’s record-breaking transfer to Liverpool last month was expected to bring some stability to an all-too unreliable defence, providing the perfect partner for Joel Matip in a towering defensive duo. Yet, things haven’t quite panned out that way, with high-profile mistakes costing Klopp a chance to gain some silverware this season via the FA Cup, proving that while the Dutchman’s arrival monumentally improves this side, one man can’t solve everything. Matip was previously regarded as the club’s best centre-back, …

One Hit Wonders. There have many throughout the years so I’d start by listing my favourites 80's - Nu Shooz with I Can’t Wait. It wasn’t a rapper who came up with that tune! 90's - Haddaway, What is Love? We’re still trying to work it out. 00's - Take your pick. Lots of shit songs! Sorry, back to the football! Liverpool’s had plenty of one-hit wonders and one terrible blunders to match. The soft rules for myself on this …
Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Amid all the controversy surrounding Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham, one man who has escaped a chunk of criticism is Dejan Lovren. The centre-back’s horrendous miskick led to Harry Kane winning Spurs’ first penalty of the afternoon - the kind of mistake you expect to see on bobbly Sunday league pitches across the country. Granted, Kane missed the spot-kick so it didn’t prove to be a key moment in the game, but it was yet another incident that summed up …

I left the ground utterly unable to form a coherent feeling about what I’d just witnessed and if you can manage to tear down any innate tribalism from your system and are still ravaged by several conflicting emotions, you know you’ve been to an odd match. Let’s go through those thoughts. Firstly, Tottenham did not deserve to lose that game. Oh, it would have been glorious to walk away …
