Premier League Goalkeepers: A Stats Analysis  - Alisson To The Rescue?

Premier League Goalkeepers: A Stats Analysis - Alisson To The Rescue?

The season is finally underway. The transfer window was shut early - Premier League clubs spent over 120 million pounds on goalkeepers, breaking the world record twice. Three of the top six will have new numbers ones in the coming season with Leno, Alisson and Kepa taking the place between the posts for Arsenal, LFC and Chelsea respectively. The market was so inflated that the Reds managed to sell our 25-year-old third choice keeper for 12 million pounds. Danny Ward …
Sadio Mane: Still Underrated

Sadio Mane: Still Underrated

Football commentators like to give partnerships names. Shearer and Sutton were known as ‘SaS’ in the days when Blackburn were tearing up the League while Liverpool had their own ‘RAF’ when Rush and Fowler ruled the Anfield roost. Spurs had their ‘Famous Five’ too, back in the time that Ossie Ardiles was all about scoring and conceding tons at the same time. I mention this as I’ve heard talk of our own front three referred to as ‘The Trident’ which …

Brilliant (but not enough) signings leave LFC riding on luck in title charge

Brilliant (but not enough) signings leave LFC riding on luck in title charge

Liverpool’s aggressive and early dealings left many, not least usually sceptical fans impressed. For so long “monitoring of targets” and “staying in conversations for top players” defined the club’s dealings in the transfer market. The swiftness and efficiency that characterised the summer was therefore received with a welter of joy and shock. In Alisson, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Shaqiri, the club’s decisiveness in dealing with some key weaknesses in the squad was been self-evident. However, with Liverpool, there is always …

Why this is a defining season for Jürgen Klopp

On the dawn of Liverpool's 2018/19 Premier League campaign, excitement could not be more palpable. A solid season last year with some exquisite performances saw Reds fans treated to some fine displays which led them all the way to the Champions League final and to a second consecutive fourth-place finish in the league. Last season's final in Kiev was Klopp's third major final since he took charge of Liverpool back in October 2015, but his side are yet to win …

Liverpool 4-0 West Ham: Man of the Match

After showing some fantastic ambition in the transfer market, Liverpool have at last assembled the tools for a fully-fledged title fight.

Instead, they lived up to the hype. On paper, Sadio Mane was the star of the show. Last year belonged to Mohamed Salah, but today the man …

Liverpool soar to the top on opening day of campaign

It was the moment we'd all been waiting for. Liverpool kicked off their 2018/19 Premier League campaign against West Ham at Anfield brimming with confidence and optimism for the season ahead. The summer business had been done, and done well, bringing in Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho, the long-awaited Naby Keita and Brazil's No.1 Alisson Becker to boot. Daniel Sturridge's summer revival and the overall pre-season form had suggested this could really be Liverpool's year with a 5-0 romping of Napoli only …

First-half goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mané set the Reds on their way in a strong first-half performance. Mané added to his tally after the break, before Daniel Sturridge got himself on the scoresheet, just 20 seconds after coming on the pitch. Here's how each player fared on the day. Alisson Becker - 6/10 He …
