Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Player Ratings

Leicester 2 Liverpool 3 - Player Ratings

A win! A win! We'll take that, won't we? A first three points for the Reds in what seems like forever, as we dispatched Jamie Vardy and his band of merry men. 3-2! Simon Mignolet (6): An interesting performance for Migs. Some good saves, but he'll be annoyed that he pushes the ball to Mahrez from an early Vardy chance and to Vardy for his tap-in. A great penalty save, but he'll be annoyed that he did a Lovren vs Sevilla …
Observations from Liverpool's disappointing Cup exit at Leicester

Observations from Liverpool's disappointing Cup exit at Leicester

Liverpool crashed out of the League Cup with a 2-0 defeat against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The Reds dominated large parts of the game, but their wastefulness in front of goal was punished. Islam Slimani's sensational second goal to add to Shinji Okazaki's opener was enough for the Foxes to progress to the 4th round. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke made their first competitive starts for the Reds, in a disappointing outing at a stadium where Jurgen …

Leicester City 2 - 0 Liverpool: A night to forget at the King Power Stadium

Competition: Carabao Cup 3rd Round Date: 19/9/17 Venue: King Power Stadium So, the Reds were back in action again tonight. September is a gruelling month, match-wise for most clubs, second only to December.

How Will Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In At Liverpool?

How Will Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain Fit In At Liverpool?

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a Liverpool player. The Reds moved quickly and effectively to acquire the England international just days before the transfer window closed and Jurgen Klopp will expect big things from the former Arsenal star. Liverpool had to pay around £40 million to pry the 24-year-old away from the Emirates Stadium but it was a lucrative offer that Arsene Wenger simply couldn’t refuse. But how will Oxlade-Chamberlain fit in at Anfield in the long term? Well, The Daily Express …
Liverpool 2 - 2 Sevilla: Player ratings from a frustrating night at Anfield

Liverpool 2 - 2 Sevilla: Player ratings from a frustrating night at Anfield

A disappointing one, that. Liverpool were better, much better, than Sevilla for large parts. The Reds' attack gave the Spaniard's defence hell, and the Reds know they should have walked off the pitch with all three points, and preferably eleven men. So, a 2-2 draw will irk most - myself included. But, Liverpool showed enough tonight to suggest that they can top this group, and if Firmino scores his penalty then we don't spend the next three days dissecting a …

(Considering how Liverpool and Klopp had given up on the game in the second half, we need to take these ratings with a pinch of salt) Simon Mignolet (6): Restored to the lineup, the keeper had a very busy first half, pulling …

Liverpool Lucky To Have A Player Of Daniel Sturridge's Calibre

Liverpool Lucky To Have A Player Of Daniel Sturridge's Calibre

Liverpool’s transfer window, whilst being rich in terms of the numbers of incomings, has been a source of frustration among many of the clubs’ fans with a lot of frustration being centred on the failure to land Virgil van Dijk after a well-publicised courtship. However, something the Reds’ fans should revel in is the fact that the injury prone but brilliant striker Daniel Sturridge remains at the club. Now, proclaiming that an injury plagued and relatively highly paid striker remaining …
