Liverpool's Defence: A Broken Record

Liverpool's Defence: A Broken Record

Things looked so promising when Liverpool smashed Arsenal 4-0 at Anfield in August. Oozing confidence and class, Jurgen Klopp’s side were better than their opponents in every department. They hunted the ball in packs, showing unrivalled energy and determination to dictate the tempo of the game and assert their dominance. It was absolutely glorious to watch. Since then, the wheels have well and truly fallen off what previously looked a rampant and highly impressive looking side. Hammered 5-0 by Manchester …

All you need to know about Leicester City v Liverpool

The Details Competition - Premier League Venue - King Power Stadium, Leicester Referee - Anthony Taylor Date & Time - Saturday, 23rd September 2017 @ 17:30 BST Form Leicester have started the season slower than they would have liked.

They are bound to be buoyed …
Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Leicester Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool’s run of form makes for miserable reading as of late, with two losses and two draws in their last four fixtures. Jurgen Klopp will have hoped for an easy fixture to get back on track with the team’s current form being so poor, but Leicester away is far from that. Having already played them once this week, albeit with a weakened side, Liverpool have to once again travel to the King Power to hopefully return with a better result …
Player Ratings as Liverpool continue the September Slump

Player Ratings as Liverpool continue the September Slump

Liverpool continued their worrying patch of form with another sub-par display on Tuesday evening. Up against Leicester in the Carabao Cup, The Reds dominated the first forty-five minutes, creating multiple chances but failing to make them count. Such misgivings were punished in the second-half when Liverpool's defensive frailties came back to bite them again. Here are the ratings from the game. Danny Ward - 6 Can't be attached blame for either of Leicester's goals. In general, he coped pretty well …

Leicester City 2 - 0 Liverpool: A night to forget at the King Power Stadium

Competition: Carabao Cup 3rd Round Date: 19/9/17 Venue: King Power Stadium So, the Reds were back in action again tonight. September is a gruelling month, match-wise for most clubs, second only to December. Liverpool have stayed true to their form of recent years by struggling in the immediate aftermath of the first international break of the season. A 5-0 trouncing at City was followed up with two home draws (2-2 v Sevilla, 1-1 v Burnley). Now, they begin a run …
Observations from the Liverpool v Burnley Stalemate

Observations from the Liverpool v Burnley Stalemate

This was always going to be a difficult game, especially considering Burnley's solid away form this season. It ended up as a stalemate, with Liverpool dropping two points. The key takeaways - Team News Klopp was expected to ring in the changes for the game vs Burnley, and he confirmed the same during his pre-match press conference. So it was not surprising to see the number of changes, but the intriguing aspects were the return of Coutinho and a start …
Player Ratings as Liverpool left frustrated again

Player Ratings as Liverpool left frustrated again

It was very much a tale of attack vs defence on Saturday afternoon as Liverpool were left frustrated by a resolute Burnley defence. Evident right from the minute the two team-sheets came out, Burnley were well set up to close off the space in midfield and utilise their strengths from set-pieces on another sub-par day for The Reds. Here are the ratings from the match. Simon Mignolet - 7 The Belgian can be attributed no blame for the Burnley goal, …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Burnley: Anfield bears witness to another draw

Competition: Premier League Date: 16/9/17 Venue: Anfield September has been a sobering month for Liverpool fans. Gone are the exuberant days of August and with them, our care-free attitude to just enjoying our Redmen attacking, scoring, and attacking again. September has opened our eyes to those defensive concerns which we knew were always there. In August, we were able to sweep those matters under the proverbial rug. September, however, seems to be that better friend. Unlike August, she won’t let …
The Etihad Anomaly - time to move on from City

The Etihad Anomaly - time to move on from City

When Sadio Mane was given his marching orders at The Etihad on 37 minutes on Saturday, I, along with, I assume, many others, instantly felt a pang of inevitable defeat. Gary Neville agreed - the spectacle was over - the game was over - call me defeatist, but for me, I couldn't see any way back. Upon receiving the red, perhaps wrongly, for me, it was simply a matter of damage limitation. This wasn't a Rafa/ Houllier team of defensive compactness we were watching, …
