Liverpool 1 - 0 Crystal Palace: Player Ratings

Liverpool huffed and they puffed but in the end, Sadio Mane's first Anfield goal of the season ensured that the Reds took their first Premier League win of the season. It wasn't pretty for large parts of the game, as a sluggish Liverpool threatened to be stifled out of the game by a disciplined Palace, but a stroke of good fortune meant that the ball fell in Mane's path for him to calmly slot past Wayne Hennessey. Here are the …
Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: A Near Perfect Night?

Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: A Near Perfect Night?

It was hardly going to be an easy night. Liverpool were away, in their first Champions League game under Klopp, to perhaps the toughest side available in the draw, Hoffenheim, who had not lost for over a year at home. Alongside this, there was the ongoing Coutinho situation, whilst two of Liverpool's best offensive players - Daniel Sturridge and Adam Lallana - remain sidelined, so too Nathaniel Clyne. Nevertheless, this was the amalgamation of all the hard work from the 2016-17 …

Liverpool v Crystal Palace Preview - Key Battles

A disappointing late goal conceded at Watford in the opening Premier League game was almost followed by a sense of Deja(n?)-vu at Hoffenheim, as Liverpool nearly contrived to blow a 2-0 lead at the Rhein-Neckar Stadion. But with the win in Europe in the bag, and some much-needed confidence, Liverpool welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield for the first of three consecutive home games that could form a defining period, even so early in the season. Trent Alexander-Arnold will be brimming with …

Liverpool v Crystal Palace - Klopp and co to clip Eagles' wings

The Details Venue - Anfield Referee - Kevin Friend Date & Time - Saturday, August 19th @ 15:00 BST Form Crystal Palace got off to a very disappointing start under new boss, Frank de Boer, last week. The Eagles went down to a heavy 3-0 home defeat to Premier League new boys, Huddersfield Town. De Boer won’t be looking forward to facing another German manager’s men this Saturday. David Wagner was the best man at Jurgen Klopp’s wedding so I’m …

Hoffenheim 1-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Liverpool went one step closer to qualifying for the Champions League with a 2-1 victory over Hoffenheim in the first leg of their playoff contest. It was a gutsy performance from the Reds following their 3-3 draw against Watford on the opening weekend of the Premier League. Goals from Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Milner were enough to see them cross the line and they will go into the clash at Anfield next week with a crucial lead in the European …
Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Watford 3 Liverpool 3: A Tactical Breakdown

Completely bewildering, yet almost oxymoronically, so very familiar; Liverpool's 3-3 draw was, for the most part, a frustrating game, with a blisteringly good period of play for Liverpool sandwiched between two periods that were hard to watch. To really understand how the game progressed, and key points within it, we shall look at the goals, specific players, and positioning across the game. First, though, we're going to need some of the stats from the game to flesh out the general …

The Details Venue: WIRSOL Rhein-Neckar-Arena Referee: Bjorn Kuipers Date & Time: August 15th, 2017 @ 19:45 BST Form Hoffenheim, like Liverpool, only started their competitive season this past weekend. They faced lowly FC Rot-Weiss Erfurt in the DFP Pokal, claiming a solid 1-0 win away from home. They did, however, show some good form over the summer with good wins and plenty of goals against Standard Liege, Derby County and Bologna.

Liverpool Always One Step Behind Until they Fix Their Shaky Foundations

Ask any Liverpool fan, or any football fan for that matter, about where they want their team to be challenging and they’ll give you the same answer.

In order to do that, you need to have water tight foundations and carry real authority and verve going forward. Liverpool have such prowess in the final third of …
