The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

The Magnificent Seven: How Liverpool Trounced Spartak

Since September, in our match analyses, we've concluded more often than not that Liverpool's performances have warranted better scorelines, that the underlying performances have actually been rather good, even despite the growing discontent with Jürgen Klopp's side through October as the team struggled, with a particular low-point against Spurs, and even into November as Liverpool conceded late on to Chelsea, familiar angry voices, from last season's winter rut reemerged. After 32 goals in 9 games, I have one question for …

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 …
Liverpool 7 - 0 Spartak Moscow: Iron Curtain torn apart by Reds onslaught

Liverpool 7 - 0 Spartak Moscow: Iron Curtain torn apart by Reds onslaught

The Details Date: 6/12/17 Venue: Anfield, Liverpool Background The stage was set at Anfield. The knockout stages of the Champions League awaited the victors. A win for Liverpool would also guarantee top spot in the group. Draw, and the Reds would probably slip into second place as Sevilla were widely expected to defeat Maribor in their final game, also tonight. Spartak had to win to progress. Klopp again rotated his starting eleven with five changes from the team that took the pitch at …
Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …
Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Liverpool's Fifty Million Managers

Has Jurgen Klopp finally started to get the hang of rotation? Or is this another false dawn? Against Chelsea, both Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were rested, as Klopp made some big changes from the side that drew with Sevilla. Then against Stoke, Klopp left Phil Coutinho and Mo Salah out of the starting line-up. There has also been rotation in midfield, as Henderson, Wijnaldum and Milner were rotated whilst Emre Can suffered a niggling injury. With Can returning, both …

Solanke made his first Premier League start for the Reds while Emre Can and Dejan Lovren also returned to the starting eleven. Oxlade-Chamberlain held onto his starting berth from the Chelsea game at the weekend. Salah …
Stoke 0 - 3 Liverpool: Player Ratings from a good win for the Reds

Stoke 0 - 3 Liverpool: Player Ratings from a good win for the Reds

Liverpool got back to winning ways in the Premier League with a third successive league win at Stoke. The Reds ran out 3-0 winners after Sadio Mane's opener was followed by two more customary Mo Salah goals after the Egyptian had come on from the bench. Stoke gave Liverpool something to think towards the end of the first half and the beginning of the second, but the Reds' quality eventually shone through. SIMON MIGNOLET - 5/10 He should've seen red …
Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea: A Fair Result?

Liverpool's one-all draw with Chelsea was a disappointing result to take given the scoreline in the 84th minute. The manner of Willian's goal, a floated cross which found its way into the top corner, only compounded the fans' disappointment, after surrendering a three goal lead, away from home, in midweek. The discussion about the game itself begun well before kick-off, with Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino rested on the bench, with Sturridge and Oxlade-Chamberlain brought in, whilst Milner was also, surprisingly, …
Sevilla performance tarnished by return of familiar failings

Sevilla performance tarnished by return of familiar failings

Well that Sevilla game was a sickener, wasn't it? The model European away performance in the first half, albeit not without its problems. Sevilla sadly proved once more to be a real bogey side; able to smell blood and ruthlessly capitalise on our weaknesses. Add them to a recent bogey team list that contains Manchester United, Burnley, Newcastle and even Southampton (certainly until last weekend). During the game, I commented in the AI Writer's WhatsApp group that we needed a …
