Liverpool 3-0 Southampton - Ratings from a comfortable Reds victory

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton - Ratings from a comfortable Reds victory

A big week for Liverpool started off on the best possible note, as the Reds romped to an easy 3-0 win at Anfield against Southampton. The Saints curse was broken as the Reds finally managed to score against their bogey opponents after four unsuccessful attempts last season. Mo Salah set the ball rolling with a sublime curler into Fraser Forster's far post, before doubling the lead after being found by a sublime through ball from Philippe Coutinho. Coutinho got himself …

Reasons to be Cheerful - West Ham 1 Liverpool 4

Well, didn’t that feel better? Following the nightmare that was Wembley, the Reds/the Shocking Oranges returned to the capital and tore apart a side who were asking to be beaten into submission. True, things could have been different if Andre Ayew successfully dinked a fairly simple chance past Simon Mignolet, but once Mo slotted past Joe Hart there was only one outcome. And yet, we did let them back in. We often do. Joe Gomez could have done better with …
How did Liverpool outplay West Ham?

How did Liverpool outplay West Ham?

Whilst watching Liverpool thrash West Ham, I didn't quite know what was going on, but I liked it. Now, I've rewatched the game to get some semblance of what happened, and why it panned out the way it did. Instead of looking at the goals today, we'll be looking essentially at the story of the game - how Liverpool set up, what they took advantage of, and differences compared to other recent games. A good place to start when looking …

Double DM's - Klopp deep 'sixes' his system

"It looked like an offensive lineup, but it was a defensive lineup. Two sixes, two clear sixes!" - Jurgen Klopp
A surprise lineup pleased Liverpool fans as soon as it came out, even if we weren't exactly sure why. The inclusion of Mané was the big shock of the afternoon since even the manager had said he might be ready for 20 minutes. His dynamism and speed take the Reds to another level, but with Bobby Firmino, Oxlade …

West Ham 1 - 4 Liverpool: Reds run riot at London Stadium, again

West Ham 1 - 4 Liverpool: Reds run riot at London Stadium, again

The Details Date: 4/11/2017 Venue: London Stadium Background Liverpool visited West Ham for the first time since their convincing 4-0 victory at London Stadium back in May. Klopp's Reds have been trying to kickstart their season again after a dismal run of results in September. October was an improvement but Spurs took Liverpool apart at Wembley to put a bit of a dampener on the 'revival'. Sadio Mané also returned to the starting eleven, ahead of schedule after his recent injury. West Ham …
West Ham 1-4 Liverpool - Player Ratings as the Hammers are crushed

West Ham 1-4 Liverpool - Player Ratings as the Hammers are crushed

Well in, Reds. After a couple of routine 3-0's, a fairly hair-raising 4-1 got the heart rates back up whilst still providing a healthy kick to the goal difference. It looked bad, then it looked oh so good. It looked bad again for exactly 57 seconds, and it was more than good by the end. Roll on some dropped points on Sunday! Here are the ratings. Defence Simon Mignolet - 5: Why the *bleep* doesn't he come and get the …
Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool FC and The Dreaded U-Shape

Liverpool's last two matches have both ended with impressive score-lines, with six goals and none conceded. However, despite the two 3-0 wins, both of Liverpool's performances have been somewhat flat and lacklustre. The opponents in these past two matches both opted to employ low defensive blocks with no real intention to play or score a goal, so Liverpool had the relatively simple task of having 90 minutes to basically break those teams down. However, although that may appear simple, and …
Observations from Liverpool's comfortable night against Maribor

Observations from Liverpool's comfortable night against Maribor

Three goals, three points and an efficient performance. The Reds are back, kind of, with the Champions League last 16 well in sight. From the top of the main stand, where I sat for the first time (pleasantly surprised at noise), what did I observe? Daniel Sturridge Yes, I’m starting with a substitute scoring in the last min. Sturridge is the real story of the night. After all, he’s been through, he finally gets his Champions League goal, and a …

Liverpool 3-0 Maribor - Player Ratings from Liverpool's defeat of Maribor

Liverpool produced a carbon copy of the weekend performance against Huddersfield, to put themselves in control of Group E in the UEFA Champions League. After an insipid first-half display, goals from Mo Salah, Emre Can and Daniel Sturridge gave the Reds a 3-0 win over a plucky Maribor in the rather quiet confines of Anfield. The win means that Liverpool can book a place in the Round of 16, with a win against Sevilla on Matchday 5 in Spain. Here's …
