Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Chelsea 0 - 2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool travelled to 'potential' title contenders Chelsea in their opening away game in the league and came out deserved winners in a professional, controlled performance. Liverpool made one forced change in defence with Fabinho being forced to line up in defence along side Trent Arnold, Van Dijk and Robertson due to injuries to Gomez and Matip. There were pre match talk about the drop in Alisson's form and how his performance levels were dropping to Mignolet's levels. Part of that prediction …
Mané Brace Sees Liverpool Burn The Bridge

Mané Brace Sees Liverpool Burn The Bridge

A brace from Sadio Mané saw Liverpool continue their winning start to their title defence with a 2-0 win over 10 man Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. The Reds, who handed a debut to Thiago off the bench, were comfortable throughout -- despite conceding a penalty which Alisson saved -- and Andreas Christensen's red card, for an utterly stupid foul on Mané, paved their path to a win. From the get-go it was clear that the hosts game plan was to …
Liverpool 4-3 Leeds: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool 4-3 Leeds: Who Was Man of the Match ?

Liverpool got off their Premier League defence in the most rollicking manner, winning by odd goal in seven, in what was a thrill-a-minute game. Liverpool took the lead three times and they were pegged back three times by the newly promoted side, but were not to be denied on the fourth such attempt. Alisson started in goal while Trent, Gomez, Van Dijk and Robertson started in the back-line. Alisson was beaten by some fine finishes, though he was a tad …
Liverpool Crown Brilliant Season By Shooting Down Magpies

Liverpool Crown Brilliant Season By Shooting Down Magpies

Champions Liverpool ended their season in strong fashion after a 3-1 victory away to Newcastle United. Goals from Virgil van Dijk, Divock Origi and substitute Sadio Mane sealed the win, as the visitors battled back from the concession of an early goal to regular nemesis, Dwight Gayle. After the celebrations that followed the title lifting ceremony and Wednesday's win over Chelsea, Jurgen Klopp rung the changes and plumped for fresh legs in the team. Into the side came Neco Williams, …
Liverpool Light Up Anfield In Five Goal Thriller

Liverpool Light Up Anfield In Five Goal Thriller

Liverpool lifted the Premier League trophy for the first time ever after they dismantled Chelsea 5-3 in a ding-dong battle at Anfield. Goals from Naby Keita, Trent Alexander Arnold, Georginio Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino saw the Reds race into a 4-1 lead, with Olivier Giroud scoring for the Blues on the stroke of half time. Substitute Christian Pulisic proved a catalyst for the visitors as he scored and laid on an assist for fellow replacement Tammy Abraham to bring the …
Limp Liverpool Lose in London

Limp Liverpool Lose in London

A lax display saw Liverpool fall to their second post title win defeat with a 2-1 reversal at the hands of Arsenal. A Sadio Mane goal gave the Reds the lead, but two huge errors gift-wrapped two goals for the Gunners for Alexandre Lacazette and Reiss Nelson. The visitors dominated the possession, in terms of shots on goal and territory but a half-hearted effort meant they couldn't capitalize and the hosts held on for a win that means Liverpool cannot …
Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Liverpool had their 100% winning record at home in the league taken away from them, after poor finishing and inspired keeper saw them frustratingly draw 1-1 at home to Burnley. Andy Robertson's arching header gave the Reds a merited lead before the visitors -- who were only in the contest thanks to heroics from keeper, Nick Pope -- stole an equaliser through an angled Jay Rodrigues volley. The hosts had two clear penalty shouts denied in a frustrating afternoon. With …
Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool became the quickest team in Premier League history to win 30 games in a season with a 3-1 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium. A brace from Golden Boot chasing Mohamed Salah as well as a Jordan Henderson screamer was enough to seal the win for the Reds -- who handed Neco Williams a debut at left back -- despite a far from vintage performance against a brave Brighton outfit. Liverpool roared into an early lead, with a …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool banked yet another 3 points at Anfield after a very lacklustre 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. Until Mané put the Reds in front in the 70th minute, we failed to create any chance of note whatsoever, with Villa looking the more likely to break the deadlock with numerous dangerous counterattacks. A win is a win, though, which keeps our remarkable run of victories at home continuing along nicely. In goal, Alisson unsurprisingly started and played very well. A couple …
Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
