Observations as Liverpool Stutter Against The Baggies

It all seemed to be going so well for Liverpool. A much-changed side spearheaded by Danny Ings took an early lead before a second-half strike from Mohamed Salah put the away side two goals to the good. Three points heading to Merseyside and plenty of rested legs ahead of far more important games. No-one, not even the most optimistic of West Brom fans would've predicted the last fifteen minutes of the game. From 2-0 down, the home side fought back …

Roberto Firmino: The Most Underrated Player In The Premier League?

Liverpool have played home to some illustrious talents over the years: Ian Rush, Kenny Dalglish, Robbie Fowler, Steven Gerrard and Luis Suarez are names that roll straight off the tongue while other far more under-appreciated stars lie in wait. Dirk Kuyt was very much of that ilk.

Will Mo Salah End the Messi & Ronaldo Ballon d’Or Stranglehold?

As Mo Salah sent that outrageous looping header into the Bournemouth net last weekend, you were left stunned by yet another piece of individual genius from the Egyptian King. It also clocked up a notable milestone for the 25-year-old, who took his incredible goal tally to 40 for the season, despite not even being an out-and-out striker. Only Ian Rush and Roger Hunt have achieved that feat in the past, which sums up how prolific he has been. Luis Suarez …
