Key Stats from Swansea 1-0 Liverpool

Key Stats from Swansea 1-0 Liverpool

Liverpool fell to their first defeat in 19 games with a woeful performance as they lost 1-0 at the Liberty Stadium. Lack of clinical finishing costs Reds dearly Some days it’s your day. Some days it isn’t. Last week I mentioned how Salah, Firmino and Mane all scored low percentage chances, but this week it was the exact opposite story. Liverpool’s xG was 2.20 in this game without scoring, and all three of Liverpool’s star forwards missed chances with an …

Observations as Liverpool's Unbeaten Run Comes To A Halt

Liverpool's unbeaten run came to a frustrating end on Monday night in Wales, with Klopp's side suffering a 1-0 loss to Swansea. It was a thoroughly subdued display for The Reds as all the positivity from the 18-game run was undone in just 90 minutes as Liverpool failed to capitalise on Tottenham's draw over the weekend. Here are the observations from the match. Double-decker bus frustrations end unbeaten run Liverpool have long since struggled against low-block defences. Even with Coutinho's …
Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool: Abject Reds downed by Swans

Swansea City 1-0 Liverpool: Abject Reds downed by Swans

Liverpool were agonisingly abject, going down by a single goal against Swansea City on Monday evening. Alfie Mawson's sweet finish in the first-half was enough for a dogged home side, who came into the match sitting bottom of the table. The Welsh side parked the bus and got their rewards, leaving Liverpool fans angling for a Philippe Coutinho replacement as their side notably lacked midfield creativity. Jurgen Klopp sprung few surprises with his selection, making just the one change from …

Here's how each player fared. Loris Karius - 6/10 He had two saves to make. One was a catch, which he caught. The other …

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Why Liverpool don't need to replace Phil Coutinho... Yet

Sunday morning, a few hours before Liverpool kicked off against Manchester City, I was just about done. It hadn’t been the best day for Liverpool up until that point, as the toxic fever pitch and maelstrom of Liverpool fans’ complaints about everything from Jon Flanagan’s guilty plea right the way through to Liverpool deciding £90m was too much to bid for Thomas Lemar reached a crescendo. And I’d had enough. I didn’t want to see one more stupid, angry tweet …
Why the 3-4-2-1 makes the most sense for Klopp's Post-Coutinho Liverpool

Why the 3-4-2-1 makes the most sense for Klopp's Post-Coutinho Liverpool

Like Alonso, Torres, Mascherano, Sterling and Suarez before him, Philippe Coutinho has been lured away by one of the bigger fish in world football. As a result, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are left with the task maintaining what is widely considered to be an upward trajectory without their most influential player. It is fortunate, at least, that the departure of the Brazilian comes just as Adam Lallana looks ready to rejoin the midfield - Liverpool's number 20 is one of …

Liverpool 2-1 Everton - Player Ratings from the Virgil van Dijk Derby

Some things are just meant to be, such as Everton not winning at Anfield. What looked to be heading towards another frustrating Anfield derby this season turned into a game that put a 75 million pound smile on every Red's face. Virgil van Dijk got the winner at the Kop end on his debut to win the game for Liverpool, who despite a rather disjointed performance, saw off the near neighbours in the FA Cup third round. James Milner opened …
