Key Stats as Salah seals European progression for Liverpool

Key Stats as Salah seals European progression for Liverpool

You've got me on key stats for this one folk, I apologise. I'm not smart, handsome or nuanced as Tom but I'll do my best to leave you interested. I checked with Gags over whether I could do statistics on the percentage of Alisson's hair follicles that are perfectly placed (99.87%) or how many times I felt my arse cheeks clench during the game (28), but he told me he'd prefer stuff that relates to the football a little more, …
Liverpool soar above Napoli to continue Champions League Run

Liverpool soar above Napoli to continue Champions League Run

This was Liverpool. Nail biting, mind boggling Liverpool. A night where their European fate hung in the balance, Jurgen Klopp's side flew to new heights as they soared to a 1-0 win and emerged into the knockout stages of the competition. In truth, this should've been a far healthier scoreline than it was. Sadio Mané missed a host of opportunities while Roberto Firmino remained off his best, struggling to string things together with the formidable Mohamed Salah. However, it could …

There were a lot of good moments in the game, and the key observations are as follows... Game 500 for Mr Versatile With Joe Gomez being ruled out for a while due to his injury, it was interesting to see how Klopp would react to it considering his options during the busy festive season.

Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Waiting for the line-up card to come out has become one of the most suspenseful parts of the Liverpool experience in recent weeks. Most of the anticipation surrounds the season's long wait for Jurgen Klopp to actually field his best eleven, or what the majority of us assume is his best eleven. Injuries to Joe Gomez and Sadio Mané took that option away, but on December 8th, away at Bournemouth, Jurgen Norbert Klopp finally played the Fabinho, Naby Keita, and …

Observations as late push secures the points for Liverpool

Liverpool travelled to Burnley in search of a win to stay on the tailcoats of City, who had won a day earlier. The fixture, which Liverpool won last year thanks to a Klavan D'Or, needed a repetition. Liverpool delivered the goods late on to stay in pursuit. The key observations from the game Testing the depth This was the fixture many predicted that Klopp would tinker his line up with. While some of the changes were forced due to injuries, …
Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

I know this is the Burnley match report, but do we really have to stop talking about the derby? Pickford... Origi... man, that was great. Klopp was forced into two changes for mid-week and made a five more just for the hell of it. Moreno and Origi started due to injury worries for Robertson and Mané respectively. Henderson and Milner started because Brexit means Brexit. And finally, Keita, Shaqiri and Sturridge started because… this is Burnley away and Klopp is …
Origasm at Anfield as the bar plays the star

Origasm at Anfield as the bar plays the star

Finally Fabinho… but that’s not what we’re here to discuss. Undefeated, still on City’s tail and five clear of Chelsea. Suddenly six clear of Arsenal and Tottenham and United are lost in the wilderness but that’s just a side note for now. Mané is miserable. Mo is getting mauled and Firmino is as false as we’ve ever seen him but these are problems for another day. We’ve allowed a league  low 5 goals in 14 matches through the brilliant triumvirate …
Paris 2-1 Liverpool: Reds out-gunned by Tuchel's stars

Paris 2-1 Liverpool: Reds out-gunned by Tuchel's stars

Despite the 2-1 scoreline, Liverpool weren't remotely close to staging a dramatic fightback in Paris as they left themselves with huge work to do in the Champions League. With goals from Juan Bernat and Neymar condemning the Reds to Matchday 5 defeat, Jurgen Klopp's men now must beat Napoli 1-0 or by two clear goals to advance into the last 16. That is of course, unless Red Star shock PSG in Serbia. James Milner's penalty just short of half-time gave …
Observations as Liverpool mark best ever tally from opening 12 games

Observations as Liverpool mark best ever tally from opening 12 games

Liverpool marched to a relatively routine 2-0 win against a labouring Fulham, regaining their spot at the top of the Premier League table with goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri. Once again, this wasn't a vintage performance from Klopp's side, with questions remaining about how the manager gets the very best out of his players to regain the fluidity of last season. 14 seconds makes all the difference Few would've predicted Fulham to be the ones to put the …
