Liverpool 2 Swansea 3: Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 Swansea 3: Player Ratings

An abject performance from Liverpool saw them lose at home for the first time in 25 games. The players should have a proper look at themselves on the back of this defeat. This is how badly the Reds fared. Simon Mignolet (5) - Mignolet had an enjoyable first-half as Swansea were content to sit back. The second-half was a different story as the Belgian had no answers to any of the three goals. Tough to rate a keeper when the …

Liverpool v Swansea Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool have played two Premier League games in 2017 and drawn both. Both games were away from home. Both games were a case of the Reds having lost two points, having been ahead for a good part of the games. Jurgen Klopp's men will be back to the happier surrounds of Anfield, when Swansea come visiting on Saturday. By kickoff, it would have been more than a year since the Reds last lost a game at home, and with the …

Playing United Still Leaves Me in Bits

Playing United Still Leaves Me in Bits

I hate playing United, me. I love beating them, that bit is fantastic and gives me a sense of satisfaction that is difficult to explain. The losing part pretty much goes without saying, especially with our old mucker Jose in charge of them now, but I just hate playing them. Maybe it's down to my blood pressure resembling a thermometer in the Nevada dessert at midday before the game even kicks off - the word tense doesn't come close. I …
Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

Manchester United 1 Liverpool 1 - Player Ratings

It wasn't like the game at Anfield earlier this season. It was a Liverpool vs United game that lived up to its billing. Yes, it was short of quality on a few occasions, but the pluck and frenzy of a derby was there for all to see. Zlatan Ibrahimovic's late header cancelled out Milner's first-half penalty, but Liverpool will be disappointed not to have shut the game out as they had plenty of chances before Zlatan popped up with the …

Manchester United v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a far from ideal way to warm up for a trip to Old Trafford as Liverpool put on one of their worst displays under Jurgen Klopp in the 1-0 semifinal first-leg loss in the EFL Cup at Southampton. Liverpool are very lucky to still be in that tie, but now the focus should switch to the Premier League and to their fierce rivals. United are on a fantastic run of form - they have won eight games in …

Manchester United vs Liverpool Preview: Old Rivalry, New Perspective

Liverpool make a short trip up the M6 on Sunday to face Manchester United in one of the biggest fixtures in the English football calendar. With United having experienced something of a fall from grace in recent years, the game takes on a slightly rarer meaning with the Red Devils, majorly in-form, chasing the Reds, with Jürgen Klopp's side looking to put further distance between themselves and the team their fans love to hate. THE DETAILS Match: Manchester United vs …
Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Liverpool's Lost Talent XI : 2012-2016

Much has been said about Brendan Rodgers' time at Anfield. He was often lauded for his development of talent, both by the press and by himself. This week's news that Tiago Ilori is likely to move on to Reading   had me thinking, how much talent did the Northern Irishman waste or ignore during his tenure? Yes, Raheem Sterling and Luis Suarez become household names, with the latter almost single handedly winning Liverpool the league. But looking back at the …
Klavan Can't Get No Satisfaction

Klavan Can't Get No Satisfaction

The most disappointing thing about not being active on social media is the fact that all of my hideous puns stay in my own battered brain pan, torturing me with their awfulness. In times past, I'd simply spew these abominations onto my Twitter timeline and I was free of them - a problem shared is a problem halved, after all. I mention this because Ragnar Klavan has been the inspiration for many of these awkward wordplays. The Estonian, you see, …
