Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Liverpool fell to a 2-0 defeat to Atalanta at Anfield in the Champions League. Goals from Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens sealed a deserved win for the Italians in a drab affair, marshalled by a referee, Carlos del Cerro from Spain, who was lax when it came to punishing overly physical play. The Reds, meanwhile, who made a host for changes to their team from the comfortable victory over Leicester City were abject throughout. All the personnel alterations lead to …
Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Liverpool comprehensively defeated Leicester City 3-0 at Anfield to move level with Tottenham at the top of the table. A Jonny Evans own goal, and headers from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino sealed the victory for the Reds in an imperious performance of attacking football. Were it not for the numerous saves of Kasper Schmeichel in the visitors' goal and two goal-bound shots being cleared off the line, the Champions would have won by a more handsome margin. The pre-match …
City Hold Liverpool At Etihad

City Hold Liverpool At Etihad

Liverpool go into the international break third in the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw with Manchester City at The Etihad. Mohamed Salah's early penalty was cancelled out by Gabriel Jesus' equalizer and the Reds -- who had the fortune of Kevin de Bruyne missing from the spot, albeit from an extremely harshly awarded penalty -- held on for a more than merited result, which, on another day, could have been much more. After Diogo Jota's Champions League hat-trick …
Brilliant Liverpool Maul Atalanta In Italy

Brilliant Liverpool Maul Atalanta In Italy

Liverpool took a huge step towards qualifying for the last 16 of the Champions League with a thumping 5-0 win away to Atalanta. A hat-trick from Diogo Jota as well as a goal apiece from Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah crowned a performance of attacking brilliance from the Reds. Had it not been for poor finishing and the form of Marco Sportiello in the host's goals, the English champions would have won by a bigger margin. From the offset, it …
Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier with a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield. The Reds went a goal down early on but once again showed an incredible mentality to battle on and steal all three points. We weren’t at our best but the result is the most important thing, especially in this horrifically congested, soulless season. In goal, Alisson had very little to do and didn’t have much of a chance for the West …
Jota Fires Limp Liverpool To Hammers Victory

Jota Fires Limp Liverpool To Hammers Victory

A late goal from substitute Diogo Jota saw Liverpool grind out an unspectacular 2-1 victory over West Ham United at Anfield. After trailing 1-0 to a Pablo Fornals goal for the visitors, the hosts rallied and leveled through a Mohamed Salah penalty near the half time mark. Then, after a double change from manager Jurgen Klopp, Jota -- after an assist from fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri -- cooly fired home the winner. It was an insipid showing, but, as ever, …
Lacklustre Liverpool Labour To Win

Lacklustre Liverpool Labour To Win

Goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah sealed a 2-0 win for Liverpool over Midtjylland at Anfield in Group D of the Champions. After making five changes from the victory over Sheffield United -- with only the back five and Jota retained -- a performance devoid of any fluency still yielded a win, which was sealed by substitute Salah's penalty. The slow start to proceedings from the hosts wasn't surprising, given the rhythm sapping number of personnel changes from the …
Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota saw Liverpool fight back from 1-0 down to beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Anfield. Far from their best, the Reds -- who were on the receiving end of more farcical VAR decisions -- eked out a win and moved level with Everton at the top of the table. With Alisson returning from injury, the Champions lined up in a 4231 shape with the regular front three plus Jota. The Reds showed their intent …
Liverpool Open Group D Campaign With Win

Liverpool Open Group D Campaign With Win

An own goal from Nicolas Tagliafico saw Liverpool open their Champions League Group D campaign with a 1-0 victory away to Ajax. Far from their best, the Reds -- who played a makeshift centre half pairing of Joe Gomez and Fabinho -- battled their way to a win in a professional rather than purring showing. It was clear from the opening that the hosts -- so renowned for their offensive style of football -- would endeavour to attack the English …
Key Stats as Reds frustrated at Goodison Park

Key Stats as Reds frustrated at Goodison Park

Liverpool were frustrated at Goodison Park, as a late VAR decision ruled out Jordan Henderson’s winner. Sadio Mané and Mo Salah had previously given Liverpool the lead before equalisers from Michael Keane and Dominic Calvert-Lewin gave the Blues a point. But what were the key stats from the match? The Thiago effect Having played just 45 Premier League minutes for Liverpool before tonight, Thiago could be forgiven for being rusty. However, rusty is the opposite of how he looked, as …
