Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Key Stats from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Liverpool ran riot on a famous and record-breaking night at Anfield, putting Spartak Moscow to the sword to secure their second 7-0 win of the group stage and cruise into the Last 16 of the Champions League as group winners. So what were the key stats from the night? Clinical Reds Don’t Dominate When I say that Liverpool didn’t dominate this game, what I mean is that on paper they weren’t as wholly on top of every stat as you’d …
The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

The Game of Errors - Spurs 4-1 Liverpool

I could scarcely believe my eyes, indeed, I was predisposed to turn off the television and hide. Yet even then, I couldn't bear to even cover my eyes, and instead watched in shock as Liverpool fell apart inside 20 minutes. Twenty minutes later though, and Liverpool were a few mere minutes away from somehow getting through to half-time a single goal down, despite Spurs' early dominance, then came the killer blow; the goal that ended the match before the second-half …
Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Tale of Liverpool's Season: Doubters to Believers

Jürgen Klopp had one true ambition this season. Turning doubters into believers. An impressive pre-season, capped off with a 4-0 demolition of Barcelona at a sold-out Wembley Stadium had expectations running high already. But it was the 4-3 victory over Arsenal in the very first game of the season that really got people talking. Sadio Mané was the replacement for Raheem Sterling that Liverpool FC had so desperately needed. Roberto Firmino was well and truly into his groove, Gini Wijnaldum's …
An improvement but still not a successful season for Liverpool

An improvement but still not a successful season for Liverpool

Liverpool's win over Middlesborough ensured that the Reds returned to the Champions league for only the second time since 2009, how times have changed ayy. So with Champions league qualification confirmed how should this season be looked upon? There is no doubting the importance of CL football, without it due to Liverpool's wage structure we would've had very little chance of recruiting our top transfer targets such as Virgil Van Dijk and Naby Keita. However, can this season really be …
Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Are Liverpool really THAT bad against the Premier League’s weaker teams?

Make no bones about it, Liverpool are far better against their top-four rivals than those in the bottom-half of the Premier League. The statistics show that, and we can see with our own eyes that that is the case. The Reds have undoubtedly been poor when a number of so-called lesser teams have stood before them this season, which has proved incredibly frustrating, especially when the title looked achievable at one point. Too often for opposing managers, it has been …
Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Is Klopp's reluctance to make changes costing Liverpool wins?

Editors Note: This article was written before the loss to Wolves. So we are now twenty-seven days in to 2017 and the Reds have won just one of their seven games in the New Year, drawing three (admittedly a good point at Old Trafford) and losing three. Even taking away the results from the FA Cup and EFL Cup matches, that leaves us with just two points from a possible nine since the turn of the year; by contrast, Chelsea have six …
Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool will hope to return to winning ways this weekend as they host Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday, the side in second taking on the side second bottom. On a bitter November's day at Anfield there shouldn't be a beachball in sight, something that the Reds can use to their advantage in a bid to return to the Premier League's summit. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Sunderland Venue: Anfield Date: Saturday 26th November Time: 15:00 BST Referee: Anthony Taylor FORM Liverpool will feel unfortunate not …
A Statistical review of LFC's 2015/16 Premier League Season

A Statistical review of LFC's 2015/16 Premier League Season

It's that time of the year again. I take a look at Liverpool's Premier League season from a statistical point of view. I did something similar for the 2014/15 season which you can find here although it's doubtful many will want to relive that season it's necessary as a point of reference. Liverpool's league campaign didn't pan out how many had envisaged. An eighth place finish, given just how poor the competition is, and a two point decrease in total …
Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

Liverpool Need To Convert Leads into Victories - It's Not Easy

If it happens once you can pass it off as being normal. You're told that It happens to everybody and not to worry about it. You nod in agreement at the reassurance being offered. If the same problem continuously happens then you have two choices; bury your head, pretend it's normal and carry on nodding or actually acknowledge there's an issue and look to rectify it. Liverpool have a few problems, too many to state and if you attempted to …
The Risks of Signing Premier League Proven Players

The Risks of Signing Premier League Proven Players

Premier League proven vs Foreign League signings is a debate that continues to rage on. The transfer window fans the flame of this topic and the signings made, or not made, during those windows keep this topic of debate relevant until the next transfer window is upon us. This isn't a new concept, not by a long shot. It's just a newly coined term. 'Premier League proven'. Premier League proven doesn't actually mean you've proven anything in the Premier League, …
