Nervous Afternoon Nets Another Three Points for Liverpool

Nervous Afternoon Nets Another Three Points for Liverpool

Lineup: Karius, TAA, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Gini, Henderson, Milner, Salah, Firmino, Mané Subs: Clyne, Lovren, Moreno, Lallana, Chamberlain, Mignolet, Ings Coming off of what seemed like a month-long international break Liverpool supporters were understandably anxious to see the Reds in something more action-packed than an Instagram story. But, it only took a few minutes for that anticipation to turn into anxiety. Just eight minutes in there was a massive save from Karius, denying a Zaha attempt from what should …
Player Ratings as Salah's Strike Downs Eagles

Player Ratings as Salah's Strike Downs Eagles

Palace away, I don't think I'll ever be able to enjoy it. Six goals and two wins in the last couple of trips there, but have either been fun? Credit to Palace, their main strength is that they don't make it fun for their opponents. Able to soak up the pressure and then race forward with quick, powerful players, they're arguably the best designed of the mid-table teams to beat any of the top six. Except at the moment, they're …
Liverpool’s One-Dimensional Midfield Highlights The Need For Naby

Liverpool’s One-Dimensional Midfield Highlights The Need For Naby

Last Thursday, Naby Keita was starring for RB Leipzig as they defeated Zenit St Petersburg 2-1 in the Europa League. The Guinean laid-on a delightful assist for Timo Werner, gliding through the midfield before finding the forward in inch-perfect fashion, on a night that also saw him win all five of his tackles, complete five take-ons and enjoys a 93 percent passing accuracy. It was a midfield masterclass, during a season in which Keita has actually been criticised for downing …
Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Player Ratings as United take 3 points at Old Trafford

Liverpool were so 'un-Liverpool' like in attack, and so 'Liverpool' in their defence as they slumped to defeat at Old Trafford. The second half was a better performance and the ref was a nutcase, but that does not take away a shambolic defensive performance in first half. Loris Karius (5) - Left high and dry for both his goals. Made an excellent late tackle high up the pitch as Liverpool looked to salvage a point. Trent Alexander Arnold (2) - Horrid game …
Heavy Metal Lullaby - Observations from LFC 0-0 Porto

Heavy Metal Lullaby - Observations from LFC 0-0 Porto

Liverpool cruised into the quarter-finals of the Champions League, following up their 5-0 away win at Porto with a comfy 0-0 draw in the return leg. So what were the observations from a rather un-exciting game? Boring, Boring Liverpool Do The Job On paper, it wasn’t billed as a hugely exciting game, and perhaps Liverpool deserve a lot of credit for making it every bit as boring as they could. In the first twenty minutes there was a lot of …
Liverpool 0-0 Porto: Player ratings from a European snoozefest

Liverpool 0-0 Porto: Player ratings from a European snoozefest

Job done, professional work, blah blah blah. That was a little boring, wasn't it? Liverpool (5) 0-0 (0) Porto. Onto Old Trafford and into the quarter-finals. Another clean sheet for Big Loris Loris Karius (7): Keeps clean sheets, looks cool. And now he's done the simple stuff in a simple manner! Lively off his line in the first half, a couple of average saves. Good that he was kept in. Joe Gomez (6): A little rusty on his comeback but nothing to …

Player Ratings as a Patient Liverpool secure three points

It was a tough opening half to the game as Newcastle defended in an organized manner, but once Salah put Liverpool ahead, there was always going to be only one winner. This is how the Reds fared. Loris Karius (8) - Was a spectator for most of the match, but when called upon, made a world-class save to deny Diame from equalizing at the end of the first half. Was always intent on releasing the ball at the earliest. Solid performance …
Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Liverpool’s Best Midfield: What Is It?

Picture the scene: Liverpool are preparing for the Champions League final in May, after a stunning march to the showcase event at Kiev's Olympic Stadium. Having seen off Porto in the last-16, probably despite somehow losing 4-0 at Anfield in the second-leg, they then dispatched of Chelsea and Man United, with last-minute winners in both ties. Sounds pretty special, doesn’t it? As Jurgen Klopp prepares his players for the biggest match in club football, he will be left with an …
Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

Klopp's Gamble and Liverpool's Creativity

It has been over a month since a certain Brazilian left for Barcelona. A month of ups and downs, as it more often than not is for Liverpool supporters. From managing to snap Manchester City's win streak to losing to Swansea and another early exit in the FA Cup, to snatching a draw from the jaws of victory last week (still salty about that one), to our first 2-0 win in a year. At the end of the day, we …
