However, that wasn't the case on Tuesday evening as Jurgen Klopp's side delivered a stomping away performance to record the highest away win in Europe.

The Details Date: 17/10/17 Venue: Stadion Ljudski vrt, Maribor, Slovenia Background After opening the group stages with two consecutive draws, in games that they really should have won, Liverpool needed to stop sharing the spoils.

Mourinho's Double-Decker Denies the Reds - Liverpool 0 - 0 Manchester United

The Details Date: 14/10/2017 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background This game, eh? This bloody game. Especially when it's the early kick-off on a Saturday, this bloody game. The remaining happiness levels of our weekend largely depended on the following ninety minutes of football. You could argue it shouldn't, but it does.

Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Emre Can - A Player With Potential

Potential is a funny word. It’s a word that can often be used as a backhanded compliment or an excuse for poor performance – well he’s got potential. It can be a word that ignites the feeling of general excitement – he’s got potential. It can be a word to slot in when you’re genuinely not sure on your judgement of someone – he’s got potential. Now potential seems to be tied to a large extent with age, which is …

Liverpool Fans Need to Stay Calm

It's been a tough few weeks of late, with Liverpool dropping points against Newcastle, Burnley, Spartak Moscow and Sevilla whilst also getting knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester. Some fans have even started to turn on the manager. It's strange, Liverpool are only seven games into the league season and people are already writing off their chances of Champions League qualification, the season entirely, and subsequently there's talk of a club in crisis. Yet the table does not …

Observations as Liverpool can't finish off Moscow in the Champions League

How did Liverpool not win that? Nobody will know. A tennis score would not have been an unjust reflection of play in Moscow, but in the end, Liverpool and Spartak Moscow had to share the points as the Reds failed to make their superiority count. Philippe Coutinho cancelled out Fernando's free-kick that gave Spartak the lead, but the Reds could see this game as one where it got away, at the end of the group stages. Here are some major …

Dominate, concede, repeat... Liverpool draw in Moscow

The Details Date: 26/9/17 Venue: Otkrytiye Arena, Moscow Background Tonight, Spartak and Liverpool met for the first time since 2002. After what can probably be described as two disappointing draws for both teams in round one of the group fixtures, each of them was looking to get back on track with three points from this fixture. Sevilla, at home to Maribor in the other fixture, would surely be picking up three points and it was important to keep pace with …
Liverpool Player Ratings from a Frustrating Night in Moscow

Liverpool Player Ratings from a Frustrating Night in Moscow

From Russia with a point, return Jürgen’s Reds. Not great for Liverpool, but routine wins against Maribor and we’ll be laughing with 8 from 4. Speaking of 8s and 4s, how did the players get on? Starting Eleven Loris Karius (5): Got sympathy for him with the first goal because it’s powerful etc. But, he doesn’t dive properly, so. Made a couple of half-decent other saves but he didn't do anything to win back his league place. Trent Alexander-Arnold (6): …
