The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

The Latest In A Long Line Of Deadly Duo’s: Firmino and Salah

Liverpool have long been blessed with tremendous attacking partnerships; there was Emile Heskey and Michael Owen, the brilliance of Torres and Gerrard, the magic of SAS and this season’s elusive ‘Fab Four’. Now, following the departure of Philippe Coutinho last month, a new partnership beckons for The Reds. Joining from Atletico Madrid, Fernando Torres formed one of the most deadly partnerships in the Premier League alongside Steven Gerrard, netting 54 times between them by the close of the 2007/08 season …
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. …

Observations as Liverpool ease past the Saints

It was a game in which Liverpool never needed to get out of second gear but still came out with a comfortable 2-0 victory. The game was settled by two beautiful first-half goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah who each continued top-class goalscoring seasons. Here are some talking points from the game: Karius loves St. Mary's Loris Karius's best performance in a Liverpool shirt thus far was in the first leg of the League Cup semi-final last season, and …
Firmino & Salah Steal The Show As Reds Ease To Win

Firmino & Salah Steal The Show As Reds Ease To Win

Southampton: McCarthy; Cedric, Stephens, Hoedt, Bertrand, Romeu, Hojbjerg; Lemina, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Carrillo.  Liverpool: Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Can, Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Salah, Mané, Firmino.  Report Liverpool coasted to a routine win at Saint Mary's courtesy of two top-class goals from Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah. Starting with three former Southampton players in the eleven, Klopp's side got off to the perfect start just six minutes in when Firmino slotted the ball calmly into the right-hand corner. Karius was the …

Key Stats from Liverpool 2-2 Spurs

Liverpool were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham at Anfield in the craziest and most controversial circumstances. But what were the key stats from the game? Sumptuous Salah https://twitter.com/btsportscore/status/960191455951314944?ref_src=twcamp%5Eshare%7Ctwsrc%5Em5%7Ctwgr%5Eemail%7Ctwcon%5E7046%7Ctwterm%5E3 There really is no other place to start. Mo Salah is not only the quickest to reach 20 league goals for Liverpool in the PL era but among the fastest ever. George Allan is the quickest, and that was in the 19th Century, over 100 years ago. Salah’s is the …
VAR Causes Chaos At Anfield

VAR Causes Chaos At Anfield

There was a period of absolute perplexity on Saturday as spectators watched Craig Pawson haplessly hold his hand to his earpiece, waiting for a decision to come through from VAR. Jake Livermore appeared to tug down Mohamed Salah in the penalty area, with the referee turning to the newly trialled technology before eventually pointing to the spot. That was one of two big calls at Anfield, with Craig Dawson’s header ruled out for a foul on Firmino after heading in …

Key Stats from Liverpool 2-3 West Brom

Liverpool crashed out of the FA Cup to West Brom in a disappointing 3-2 defeat at Anfield. But what were the key stats from this bitterly poor performance? Home Implosion This was Liverpool’s first home defeat of the season, as the Reds’ 19 game unbeaten home run ended. Defensively, this was a shambles and it was the first time Liverpool have conceded three goals in a half at home since Real Madrid in 2014. Moreover it was the first time …
Lack of ruthlessness hurting Liverpool

Lack of ruthlessness hurting Liverpool

Enough praises have been sung of Liverpool’s fab four and how they have taken Liverpool’s campaign by the scruff of the neck and delivered regularly despite the failings of the defence and midfield. This has been the story since Jurgen Klopp first arrived at Anfield and while some amount of criticism must be directed towards him for failure to tackle this problem in almost 2 years, he can be given leeway for shaping probably England’s best forward line. A 5-0 …

Key Stats from Liverpool 2-1 Leicester

Liverpool ground out a terrific 2-1 win over Leicester, with Mo Salah once again the goalscoring difference. But what were the key stats from Liverpool’s big win? Salah’s Goalscoring Insanity https://twitter.com/BassTunedToRed/status/947151177011130369 Mo Salah is an incredible forward, scoring insane amounts of goals. With 17 league goals in 1597 minutes in the Premier League, Salah is scoring a goal every 94 minutes, just about one a game. And then there’s the stat above, which contextualises just how incredible Salah’s run of …
Liverpool 1-1 Everton - Reds drop points in the Derby

Liverpool 1-1 Everton - Reds drop points in the Derby

Mo Salah scored a brilliant goal, and Wayne Rooney equalised from the spot as Liverpool were held to a frustrating and slightly unfair 1-1 draw in a tense, hard-fought Merseyside Derby. Tactically speaking, Everton will have been largely happy to sit back and let Liverpool control the game. And whilst the Reds did clearly dictate, dominating possession and having all of the chances, Everton largely frustrated them. That’s not to say that Liverpool didn’t have chances, with James Milner having …
