The Merseyside Derby Preview - Key Battles

The Merseyside Derby Preview - Key Battles

After the business was taken care off in style in European competition on Wednesday, Liverpool return to Premier League action with something maybe a little more serious at stake - local bragging rights. Also, the continued singing of "Merry Christmas, Everton!" over the festive period. There is no time to sit back and rest on the laurels of the 7-0 spanking of the Russian champions that must have made Europe take notice of the attacking force that this team is, …
The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

Since September, in our match analyses, we've concluded more often than not that Liverpool's performances have warranted better scorelines, that the underlying performances have actually been rather good, even despite the growing discontent with Jürgen Klopp's side through October as the team struggled, with a particular low-point against Spurs, and even into November as Liverpool conceded late on to Chelsea, familiar angry voices, from last season's winter rut reemerged. After 32 goals in 9 games, I have one question for …

Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Liverpool ran riot on a famous and record-breaking night at Anfield, putting Spartak Moscow to the sword to secure their second 7-0 win of the group stage and cruise into the Last 16 of the Champions League as group winners. So what were the key stats from the night? Clinical Reds Don’t Dominate When I say that Liverpool didn’t dominate this game, what I mean is that on paper they weren’t as wholly on top of every stat as you’d …
Observations as Liverpool spark out Spartak

Observations as Liverpool spark out Spartak

Absolutely joyful football from Jurgen's last 16 Reds as Liverpool bounce into the knockout stages of the Champions League, top of the group and on top of the world after another devastating win. 17 goals in 7 days. Mustard. From Coutinho's slick penalty early on to Mo Salah capping his night off with a goal, it was a perfect night that Klopp will have gone to bed dreaming of on Tuesday. On Wednesday night, will a Champions League trophy be …

Liverpool 7 - 0 Spartak Moscow: Iron Curtain torn apart by Reds onslaught

The Details Date: 6/12/17 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background The stage was set at Anfield. The knockout stages of the Champions League awaited the victors. A win for Liverpool would also guarantee top spot in the group.

Klopp again rotated his starting eleven with five changes from the team that took the pitch at …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Player Ratings as Liverpool Advance to Knockout Stages in Style

Loris Karius - 6 Didn't have all that much to do due to the brilliance of Liverpool's front four. However, there was one shaky moment in the first-half for the German goalkeeper who rushed off his line to close down a promising Spartak attack - a rather reckless decision albeit one that resulted in a free-kick due to an offside call. Alberto Moreno - 7 Wasn't particularly troubled down the left-hand side by the Spartak attack as he continued to …
Rampant Coutinho Still Liverpool's Main Man

Rampant Coutinho Still Liverpool's Main Man

With their star-studded performance against Stoke, Sadio Mane and Mo Salah were once again the men in the lights. Salah, in particular, has seen himself lauded after just about every Liverpool game, following a phenomenal November, in which he scored eight goals from six games. Mane meanwhile, has once again been reminding Liverpool fans that he is a key man for the side, with two assists against West Ham, a brilliant goalscoring performance against Sevilla and then, of course, his …
Key Stats from Brighton 1-5 Liverpool

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 …
