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 …
The Merseyside Derby Preview - Key Battles

The Merseyside Derby Preview - Key Battles

After the business was taken care off in style in European competition on Wednesday, Liverpool return to Premier League action with something maybe a little more serious at stake - local bragging rights. Also, the continued singing of "Merry Christmas, Everton!" over the festive period. There is no time to sit back and rest on the laurels of the 7-0 spanking of the Russian champions that must have made Europe take notice of the attacking force that this team is, …
Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

Is Mohamed Salah's start to the season being underplayed?

When Liverpool signed Mohamed Salah for £36.9m on 22nd June 2017 it wasn’t to the kind of fanfare one would expect for a club record signing. Sure, many Liverpool supporters were made up with the transfer, but it didn’t feel huge in its magnitude. It didn’t reverberate around the league. Certainly when you consider what was to follow. By the end of the transfer window, Mo Salah would prove to be only the 10th most expensive signing of the summer. …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's next global star?

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's next global star?

Liverpool vs Manchester United is a game that notoriously has a huge amount of viewers, but Saturday's instalment will be a clash feasted upon by a whole new nation. Mohamed Salah, jokingly titled by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain as the 'King of Egypt' some months ago, is the first real Egyptian star to feature for either of the teams and will make his debut in the fixture this weekend. Salah makes it to the game off the back of further increasing his …
Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

Liverpool vs Manchester United - Premier League Match Preview

THE DETAILS Venue – Anfield, Liverpool Referee – Martin Atkinson Date & Time – Saturday, October 14th 2017 @ 12:30 BST FORM To put it simply, Man United are red hot. Liverpool aren't. United have drawn one game in the season so far, a 2-2 away draw at Stoke, and have won all their other games. Liverpool have had only one win since beating Arsenal 4-0 before the last international break. The reversal of fortunes that the previous international fortnight …
Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

Mo Salah: Liverpool’s New Dirk Kuyt, With A Twist

On the face of it, comparing Mo Salah and Dirk Kurt is the equivalent of saying Breaking Bad and Game Of Thrones are similar TV shows. Kuyt is someone who got the very best out of his ability throughout an admirable career, occasionally resembling a pub player during an off day. Salah, meanwhile, is a player who oozes quality and natural talent, and possesses the kind of pace that most of us can only dream of. He is aesthetically-pleasing - …
The Salah Cream of the Crop

The Salah Cream of the Crop

Seven games into the season and Liverpool's new number 11, Mo Salah, is already the team's top scorer. Also, he has just earned the UEFA Champions League player of the week award. With this in mind, and his fantastic and consistent displays, just how good is Mo Salah, and how much better can he become? https://twitter.com/Squawka/status/908636197932630021 Salah's figures are remarkable - once the deal was announced, Dan Kennett from AI's Under Pressure team released the image seen below. When considering …
Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Liverpool FC: A Reality Check

Just 24 hrs ago, many of us were relishing the prospect of  Mane, Salah and Firmino tearing apart the likes of Otamendi and Stones. 4 wins in 5 matches in August had all but made us title contenders. We had the "best" attack in the league. We had a midfield trio that out"pressed" anything and everything in its path. We didn't need Coutinho because there was no place for him in the starting XI at this rate. Exactly 24 hours …
Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

Analysing Liverpool's Summer Window

It was a pretty busy window for Liverpool this summer, albeit less busy then some would have liked given Paul Joyce's remarks on the eve of deadline day. Reports of Jurgen Klopp splurging £175million proved to be widely off the mark in the end, with The Reds getting one deal over the line in the final 24 hours, adding Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to their ranks. He accompanied four other new additions to the squad - Mohamed Salah, Dominic Solanke, Andy Robertson …
Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Sadio Mané - Liverpool's Most Important Cog

Mané's importance to the team has been clear right from the word go at Liverpool. Scoring 13 goals and registering seven assists in 31 Premier League appearances, the Senegalese international needed no bedding in period to make his mark at Anfield and establish himself as a fan favourite. A fiery goal on his competitive debut against Arsenal is testament to that, showing off his pace to cannon past the defence before smashing the ball into the corner. That was followed …
