Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against Watford

Candidates For Liverpool's MOTM Against Watford

Liverpool edged one huge step closer to qualification for the Champions League proper next term with a hard-fought 1-0 away win at Watford. Emre Can scored the solitary goal that separated the two sides - and I really cannot quite put the strike from the German into comprehensible words. In what was a first half deprived of any clear-cut opportunities (bar Lallana's strike which looped onto the post), Can sent the whole football sphere into stunned silence when his acrobatic scissor-kick …
Gritty, Gutsy Reds Refusing To Falter In Quest For Top Four

Gritty, Gutsy Reds Refusing To Falter In Quest For Top Four

Stoke and West Brom were always going to be two tough games. With both sides renowned for their defensive attributes, coupled with Liverpool's inability to create space against teams who sit deep, Premier League rivals would have been licking their lips at the possibility of Klopp's side stumbling at the final hurdle. They'll have been left blissfully disappointed then, with Liverpool taking another giant step towards a return to the Champions League on Sunday. 1-0 down at Stoke with a more …

West Brom 0 Liverpool 1: Player Ratings

West Brom 0 Liverpool 1: Player Ratings

Disciplined, dogged and gritty. Those are probably the best three words to describe Liverpool's performance against West Brom. It was by no means the eye-catching, fluid football we've come to expect from Jurgen Klopp's side, but a moment of quality from Roberto Firmino was enough to seal another three points and bring The Reds a step closer to Champions League qualification. Simon Mignolet - 8 Had very little to do in between the sticks, but when he was called upon …

West Bromwich Albion v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

It was a hard-fought, sometimes even ugly, win that Liverpool earned at Stoke last weekend. It was a priceless win in the context of the race to finish in the Premier League's top 4. It meant that the Reds still have their fate in their own hands. However, Jurgen Klopp will know fully well that the win will mean nothing if his team fail to turn up at The Hawthorns on Sunday, against a West Brom side who have been well-drilled by …
Liverpool's Biggest Games Are Yet to Come

Liverpool's Biggest Games Are Yet to Come

The match against Everton this weekend is a big match, the Merseyside derby always is. This one will be particularly poignant, following the passing of Ronnie Moran. It's almost fitting that Liverpool's next Premier League match, following the sad news that broke last week, should be against Everton. Moran, a legendary figure and integral part of Liverpool's most successful period, was a local lad who became known as 'Mr Liverpool', so the occasion should be a respectful, as well as …

With 76 points, you're 94% chance of getting it. Last season, Man City got 4th with 66 points! Liverpool, right now have 52 points. That means we have …
Stuttering Liverpool must take inspiration from winning run in 2013/14

Stuttering Liverpool must take inspiration from winning run in 2013/14

That Swansea defeat hurt a lot - everything about it. To see such a talented team play with such a lack of belief and creativity was tough to take, especially when their chances of title glory were still alive. It ensured Liverpool's rocky start to the year continued, Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Hull widened their lead over the Reds to 10 points. It is getting closer to the point of no return. Despite this, we must keep reminding ourselves that …

Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool will hope to return to winning ways this weekend as they host Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday, the side in second taking on the side second bottom.
