How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

How on earth did Liverpool draw with Everton?

40 goals in the previous 11 games for Klopp's Liverpool and 18 years since Everton last won at Anfield: as the game entered the 75th minute, it appeared that wait would have to go on, until the FA Cup 3rd round fixture at least, as Liverpool were absolutely cruising. The reflected such a reading of the game too: 79.4pc possession, 964 touches (to Everton's 384), 23 shots to 3, 88pc pass accuracy to Everton's 50pc, and 644 complete passes, to Everton's …
Poor Decision Making All Round For The Reds On Derby Day

Poor Decision Making All Round For The Reds On Derby Day

79% of possession, 23 shots and 12 corners and yet somehow, Liverpool came away with just a point against The Ev. Jurgen Klopp delivered a roll of the dice before kick-off, opting to demote Philippe Coutinho and Bobby Firmino to the bench in favour of Dominic Solanke and Oxlade-Chamberlain. A double pivot of Henderson and Milner raised some eyebrows, too. Still, there was more than enough firepower out on the field to expose a youthful looking Everton back line. Mohamed …
Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

Strange (Mersey) Sides - Liverpool 1 Everton 1

I would have been a bit disappointed at 1-0, to be honest. That sounds mealy-mouthed, doesn’t it? Being all sniffy at a one goal win against the other lot from across the park, but such was the paucity of Everton’s defence and attack (including the slowest forward line in their history) that I wanted at least four by half time. They were begging to be put away, absolutely begging. Add a snowy Merseyside and Big Sam ™ with his aerial …
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, …

Every Week "Important" For Liverpool FC

Liverpool returned from the international break to begin their busiest period of the season with a 3-0 win over Saints to begin what has been labelled a hugely important week, ahead of a frantic run to January. Whilst this is, in my opinion at least, technically true, it’s also hugely misleading. Almost every week in the season can be (and has been) described as vitally important. It was important we did well against City. It was important we recovered from …

Fantasy Premier League Insight: GW9 - City Flying

With GW8 behind us, let's reflect on what transpired and MY WORD! what a game week. All the focus was on Anfield as two Juggernauts did battle; the match itself was a let down as it finished honours even. The games to follow produced some of the more unexpected results Man City once again showed us why they are pretty much nailed on for the title, smacking seven goals past Stoke City. Even with Aguero out, City assets just keep …
Liverpool v Man Utd: The Ugliest and Greatest Rivalry

Liverpool v Man Utd: The Ugliest and Greatest Rivalry

For me this all started in May 1977. I know this is going back a fair bit but bear with me. It was a Saturday afternoon and the League Champions had to conquer the impertinence of Man Utd to secure a League and Cup double. This wouldn’t prove to be a problem. United had finished sixth that season – a full 10 points behind the Reds (two points for a win in those days, of course) and had been at …

Beating United Is Everything For A Southern Liverpool Fan

I’ll warn you, this is a bit of a sob story and I am absolutely looking for sympathy. As a “southern softie”, what more do you expect? When it comes to being a Liverpool supporter from the south of England, I can assure you that the hour or so after losing to Man United is one of the most hideous as a Red. I’m sure it’s pretty grim for you too, wherever you are in the world, but I’m feeling …

Anfield Index Fantasy Premier League Insight (GW6)

GW 6: City/ Utd assets crucial With another GW (Game Week) out the way, we've found...once the dust settled, that two teams stood head and shoulders above the rest with 5-star performances all round. The Manchester clubs dismantled their opponents with #FPL assets topping the charts. While everyone and their pet hamster felt it a necessity to either have or captain Harry Kane; it spectacularly backfired as Kane failed to deliver. This turned into a running theme as Morata, Lacazette …
