Leicester 3 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Leicester 3 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Same old. Same old. If you're fighting relegation in the Premier League, call Liverpool. Three points are on offer for one and all. The Reds put in a dire performance at the King Power Stadium as the struggling champions ran out deserving 3-1 winners to reignite their campaign. Liverpool was poor - unimaginative, lacklustre and as has been the norm recently, lacking in defensive organisation. With that 16 day break, the Reds were expected to be rejuvenated and buzzing on …
Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview: Revenge for Ranieri?

Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview: Revenge for Ranieri?

Liverpool face Leicester City on Monday evening in one of the few games this season where there will be little attention on Jürgen Klopp and his Reds, in comparison to the other team. Claudio Ranieri is Dilly Ding, Dilly Gone. Leicester City are without a manager at the time of writing. Surely time for Liverpool to prey on their vulnerabilities, and pick up a second successive win? THE DETAILS Match: Leicester City vs Liverpool Venue: King Power Stadium Referee: Michael Oliver Date: Monday 27th …
How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

How Alberto Moreno Could Help Break Buses

It must be said, Liverpool have been on and off lately. That’s putting it rather mildly. To have such fantastic showings against Chelsea and Spurs, and then to produce…whatever THAT was against Wolverhampton and Hull; it’s indicative of a side with a fantastic plan A – one that gets the better of most teams who want the ball, but without a proper plan B. Of course; the idea that every football team necessarily needs a plan B when things aren’t …
What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

What to do with Roberto Firmino if Liverpool sign a new striker

There's been a lot of talk recently surrounding Roberto Firmino and whether the versatile Brazilian attacker is clinical enough in front of goal. There are arguments to be made from both sides of the fence. The truth is he can be hit-and-miss but fortunately for us we aren't overly reliant on him scoring every single game. He doesn't need to hit 30 goals. If he manages it then it's a bonus but the Liverpool system doesn't hinge on him going …
Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

Liverpool's Formidable Front-Six Is Back In Business

The way in which Sadio Mane tore Tottenham to shreds in that first-half at Anfield truly was a sight to behold. Liverpool’s returning hero was almost unplayable, scoring twice and coming very close to notching another couple before half-time. It was an individual performance that perfectly highlighted what the Reds have been missing in Mane’s absence, during the most horrendous January in recent memory. They didn’t look the same attacking force without his pace, movement, end product, and his mere …
Liverpool's Win Against Spurs is a Gentle Reminder

Liverpool's Win Against Spurs is a Gentle Reminder

Liverpool's win against Spurs was Jurgen Klopp's men putting the league on notice. The Reds went into the evening kick-off on Saturday having not won a game since the turn of the year. Swansea City, Wolves, Plymouth and Southampton had all turned to Anfield, frustrated the hosts and walked away with something to show for it. Fortress Anfield was in ruins. Liverpool were a wounded animal and Spurs could have taken full advantage of it had they been smart. They …
Liverpool Find Their Attacking Fluency to Overcome Spurs

Liverpool Find Their Attacking Fluency to Overcome Spurs

When is it going to end? The run of form that Liverpool are currently on is not in keeping with the squad at their disposal or the quality of their coach. You have to go back to the 31st of December to find the last league victory for Jurgen Klopp's side. Since then we have seen losses to both Hull City and Swansea City as well as draws with Chelsea, Manchester United and Sunderland. Add in the capitulation in the …
Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Spurs-Slaying Reds Are On The Road To Recovery

Up until Saturday, 2017 had been awful as a Liverpool supporter. Our pre-Christmas spring in the step was long gone, everything felt like a chore, and like Popeye without his spinach, you were left desperately hoping the Reds would give us a much-needed adrenalin shot. Why did we ever doubt them, though? There has been so much negativity surrounding the club this year , some of it warranted and some of it embarrassingly hyperbolic, but Saturday's fantastic 2-0 win over …
Liverpool 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 Tottenham Hotspur 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool rose from their prolonged slumber to show glimpses of the form which made them so mesmerizing in the early part of the season. Liverpool were the hungrier team tonight and walked away with the points. What a difference a week's break makes, the first for Liverpool since December. This is how the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (7) - Had a comfortable night in goal. Made a big save in the first half but was pretty much untroubled thereafter. Spurs …
Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

Why Sturridge and the Liverpool System Clash

The Daniel Sturridge "will he or won't he leave" saga is now more drawn out than the "will Ross and Rachel get it on" storyline. Just when it looks as though the tide has turned and the majority want him sold he scores a striker's goal which reminds everyone exactly what he can offer and exactly what Liverpool miss from time to time. It's a destructive relationship but I'm not quite sure whether player, manager and fans are ready to …
