Observations as Liverpool ease past the Saints

Observations as Liverpool ease past the Saints

It was a game in which Liverpool never needed to get out of second gear but still came out with a comfortable 2-0 victory. 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 …
Don't Believe The Hype - Liverpool 2 West Brom 3

Don't Believe The Hype - Liverpool 2 West Brom 3

Won a big game, have we? And thus Liverpool become Liverpool. While the Manchester City game was an undoubted highlight of the season, with Jurgen Klopp’s red men swamping all over the champions elect, it also marked the point where things went wrong. Firstly there was the Swansea game where Liverpool were second to every ball and then the delay-ridden debacle at Anfield on Saturday night when they slumped to lowly West Bromwich Albion in the FA Cup. Albion and …

VAR | Liverpool's first exposure to it and why it's here to stay

It's fair to say that every supporter of every club feels like their beloved team has been robbed by refereeing decisions this season. I can certainly say that about every single Liverpool supporter. Football is the most popular sport in the world and yet it is the only major sport to not have some form of video review. The governing bodies of the game decided to catch up with the rest of the world and viola - VAR. The VAR …

Will a new look front three get the opportunity to fire Liverpool to FA Cup glory?

The loss of Philippe Coutinho to this Liverpool side was always going to be big, however, with the FA cup returning this weekend will the biggest impact of his loss be on the team we see challenge for the cup? As well as being a world-class player, Phil's greatest attributes was his ability to play in several positions in this Liverpool side allowing Klopp to rotate to great effect. But with Coutinho gone Klopp's options possess neither the quality or …

Five New Year's Resolutions for Jurgen Klopp

Five New Year's Resolutions for Jurgen Klopp

The New Year. A time for reflection, but also time to look forward.

The last month has provided a perfect cross section of where Liverpool are and, possibly, where we are headed. The seven games in 24 days (which, in itself, is nuts) has included the massacres …
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 …
Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

Red Reset: FA Cup Key to Liverpool Expectations

With six wins and two draws by a combined score of 25-6, Liverpool supporters can safely close the chapter on a poor run of form that ran through late September and October. Fervent Firmino fans have joined satisfied Salah supporters in whipping out all of the stats and rubbing it in the face of anyone that ever doubted the two Liverpool forwards who did sputter at times early on. What is true is that Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah have …
