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. Draw, and the Reds would probably slip into second place as Sevilla were widely expected to defeat Maribor in their final game, also tonight. Spartak had to win to progress. 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

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 …
Oxlade Chamberlain: Shrugging off irrational criticism to prove his worth to Liverpool

Oxlade Chamberlain: Shrugging off irrational criticism to prove his worth to Liverpool

Football fans as a whole love to criticise players right from the get-go, as was the case when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain joined Liverpool in the summer. Moving from Arsenal for a reported fee of £35million, he was labelled a flop after failing to catch the eye after coming on as a sub. Question marks were raised about the club’s investment in the Englishman given his eye-opening injury record and severe lack of contributions in the final third. Said question marks were …
Dominic Solanke: Liverpool's Something Different

Dominic Solanke: Liverpool's Something Different

Dominic Solanke was given his first Premier League start in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Stoke City in midweek, replacing Roberto Firmino upfront as Jurgen Klopp shook his side up to contend with an increasingly gruelling fixture list and it proved to be a chance well taken from the former-Chelsea man. Deployed through the middle, Solanke showed huge flexibility at the Bet365 stadium, with an interchanging of positions between him, Mane and Chamberlain adding an extra unpredictability to the forward line. …

The "False" Roberto Firmino - Brighton 1 Liverpool 5

There are times when supporting this team can be a chore. I doubt there is a fan base in the world that has quite so much internal bickering than ours. The whole #lfcfamily hashtag is magnificent of irony, unless, of course, its creation is to illustrate how much families fight over the smallest thing. Yesterday afternoon provided a similar case. When the team was announced many of us scanned the names, looking for centre-backs. It transpired that Emre was playing …
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 …
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 …
Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …

Liverpool v Spartak Moscow - Knockout Stages beckon for Klopp's in-form Reds

The Details   Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - TBC Date & Time - Wednesday, December 6th 2017 @ 19:45 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 2/9, Draw 11/2, Spartak 10/1 Form Liverpool Form Liverpool's form has been much improved since the defeat to Spurs, and even that game was something of a speed wobble as the team had already shown signs of improvement before that, after a very disappointing September. If they can keep the momentum going into this hectic festive period then Klopp's …
