Up the European Record Breaking Reds

Up the European Record Breaking Reds

What can we possibly even say about that? There aren’t enough superlatives to accurately describe what Liverpool did on Wednesday night. First appearance in the Champions League knockout stage in 9 long years? This was a performance and result that those who witnessed will still be talking about in 9 years’ time. Porto are certainly nobodies fool. They are unbeaten domestically and had only conceded 25 goals prior to The Reds' arrival at the Estadio do Dragao, and have scored …
Porto 0-5 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Porto 0-5 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool are one of the few clubs still undefeated within the Champions League, but few expected the utterly dominant display, away to Porto, which effectively ended the tie. How then did Liverpool approach the game? For while the scoreline suggests a brutal decimation of Porto, it was not quite that simple. The match was predominantly played within the middle of the pitch, with action zones, average positions and the touch maps reflecting that. Indeed, Liverpool may have had a majority …
Observations as Liverpool Pound Five Past Porto!

Observations as Liverpool Pound Five Past Porto!

Five times! Words that Liverpool fans wish to change to six times this season and they're a step closer to realising the dream as the Merseysiders pounded Porto's goal FIVE TIMES! Liverpool's victories have been attributed all season to their fab four, erm three, but this win was about the entire team. Jurgen Klopp's selections are doubted weekly, but he was vindicated with his choice in the midfield and defence tonight. Here are a few of my observations on the game. …
Liverpool Player Ratings As They Batter Porto 5-0

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Batter Porto 5-0

THE REDS. THE ABSOLUTE REDS. These Reds, our Reds, your Reds, my Reds. What a night. Liverpool return to the Champions League knockout stages after 9 years with the style and swagger of a side who had won the whole thing for nine straight years. Breaking records, breaking Portuguese hearts and breaking the net, it was a night to savour. Here's how the players rated. Goal for Porto? Nah, you're alright. Loris Karius (7): Giving him seven and not six seems …
Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Liverpool's Striking Options: Two And A Half Men

Well, that was more like it. Following the horrors of West Brom and the costly idiocy of the officials in the Tottenham game, Liverpool went to Southampton and dispelled the myth that, following the numerous goalless encounters of last season, they have become our bogey team. Virgil van Dijk was booed throughout and Dejan Lovren endured much of the same when he came on as an 89th-minute substitute – an act of such needle and piss-taking from Jurgen that he …
Second Coming For Dejan?

Second Coming For Dejan?

Van Dijk’s record-breaking transfer to Liverpool last month was expected to bring some stability to an all-too unreliable defence, providing the perfect partner for Joel Matip in a towering defensive duo. Yet, things haven’t quite panned out that way, with high-profile mistakes costing Klopp a chance to gain some silverware this season via the FA Cup, proving that while the Dutchman’s arrival monumentally improves this side, one man can’t solve everything. Matip was previously regarded as the club’s best centre-back, …
Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Dejan Lovren Epitomises Jurgen Klopp’s Frustrating Liverpool

Amid all the controversy surrounding Liverpool’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham, one man who has escaped a chunk of criticism is Dejan Lovren. The centre-back’s horrendous miskick led to Harry Kane winning Spurs’ first penalty of the afternoon - the kind of mistake you expect to see on bobbly Sunday league pitches across the country. Granted, Kane missed the spot-kick so it didn’t prove to be a key moment in the game, but it was yet another incident that summed up …
Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: A Tactical Breakdown

It was a thrilling game, in which the points were shared, but one in which the away side will be by far the happier of the two sides. Liverpool dominated the entirety of the first-half, scoring early, cutting through Spurs with ease and squandering glorious chance after chance. Liverpool's gameplan, to press aggressively and surrender the ball was good, and with Spurs using a 4-2-3-1, it became perfect. The spaces were there for Liverpool to exploit, and on a number of …
Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

Liverpool 2-2 Spurs: Frantic Finish Sees Points Shared At Anfield

A frantic finale saw Liverpool and Tottenham secure injury-time goals, playing out a thrilling 2-2 draw at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. With the reverse fixture having gone so poorly for Klopp’s men earlier in the season, this was a suitable opportunity to enact some revenge on Mauricio Pochettino’s side and extend the points gap between the two. Such plans got off to the perfect start when Mohamed Salah netted his 20th goal in the Premier League inside the opening few …
