Liverpool 3 - 0 Southampton: Saints put to the Sword at Anfield

The Details Date: 18/11/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background Premier League football returned today after the final international break of the year. Liverpool welcomed Southampton to Anfield.

Joel Matip missed out through injury but Coutinho, Henderson and Mané were all fully recovered and made the starting eleven. Shane Long replaced Gabbiadini as the lone striker for Southampton while Lemina was still out …

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton - Ratings from a comfortable Reds victory

A big week for Liverpool started off on the best possible note, as the Reds romped to an easy 3-0 win at Anfield against Southampton. The Saints curse was broken as the Reds finally managed to score against their bogey opponents after four unsuccessful attempts last season. Mo Salah set the ball rolling with a sublime curler into Fraser Forster's far post, before doubling the lead after being found by a sublime through ball from Philippe Coutinho. Coutinho got himself …

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool's last two matches have both ended with impressive score-lines, with six goals and none conceded. However, despite the two 3-0 wins, both of Liverpool's performances have been somewhat flat and lacklustre. The opponents in these past two matches both opted to employ low defensive blocks with no real intention to play or score a goal, so Liverpool had the relatively simple task of having 90 minutes to basically break those teams down. However, although that may appear simple, and …
Alberto Moreno - A Man Reborn

Alberto Moreno - A Man Reborn

If you want to find the best possible example of a stubborn football fan, find someone who really, really doesn’t rate Alberto Moreno. We live in an age where we all pride ourselves on being right about certain players, managers and teams, and admitting you may have actually been wrong about one, or simply giving them praise or criticising them, seems impossible. This is painfully apparent with Moreno, who has gained a legion of loyal haters incapable of doing anything …
Liverpool 3-0 Maribor - Player Ratings from Liverpool's defeat of Maribor

Liverpool 3-0 Maribor - Player Ratings from Liverpool's defeat of Maribor

Liverpool produced a carbon copy of the weekend performance against Huddersfield, to put themselves in control of Group E in the UEFA Champions League. After an insipid first-half display, goals from Mo Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge gave the Reds a 3-0 win over a plucky Maribor in the rather quiet confines of Anfield. The win means that Liverpool can book a place in the Round of 16, with a win against Sevilla on Matchday 5 in Spain. Here's …
Liverpool 3 - 0 Maribor: Patience the most important virtue again

Liverpool 3 - 0 Maribor: Patience the most important virtue again

The Details Date: 1/11/17 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background Liverpool came into this game as hot favourites after disposing of the same opposition 7-0 in Slovenia two weeks ago. They could all-but-guarantee qualification to the knockout stages with three points tonight and maintain pole position at the top of the group ahead of Sevilla. Klopp would have the opportunity to rest some regular starters and give some much-needed game time to fringe players. Oxlade-Chamberlain would get his chance from the start but …

They were well beaten at Wembley by Spurs while showing a more patient, professional side to their game against Huddersfield. Lovren and Mignolet, among others, had a nightmare at Wembley, however, Klopp stuck by …

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Kevin Friend Date & Time - Saturday, October 27th @ 15:00 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 1/5, Draw 6/1, Huddersfield 10/1 Form How do I write a "form" paragraph about this Liverpool side? How are they playing? There is nothing consistent about the season so far for me to detract any suitable, relevant information. Three draws in a row, where the Reds dominated their opposition but failed to make it count, was followed by …
