Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

In a game where Liverpool actually had slightly less possession, it was a clear case of managing the match accordingly. The Reds rarely had to stretch themselves, and short of the odd and inevitable moment, they cruised to a comfortable 0-2 victory. Brighton are in a slump, not a free fall slump, but a worrying run of form. This marks five Premier League losses on the spin for Graham Potter, and the mid-table safety they hold appears to have seen …

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report The first half was a game of frustration for both sides, with neither giving much away through the opening period. Both Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk could have scored from tremendous Trent deliveries, and Alisson was alert enough to parry away a good cross come shot from Hakan Çalhanoğlu. These great teams appeared intent on cancelling each other out, which of course suited the reds far more. The second half …

Liverpool 1 - 0 West Ham - Match Report In a game where West Ham were so impressive, Liverpool needed moments of great defensive play in order to secure the three points.

The Hammers performance again points to a great system under David Moyes, and West Ham would be worthy …

Liverpool 0 - 0 Chelsea - The League Cup Final Match Report

The initial stages and final Pre-match build-up was consumed with bad news, as the Spanish magician Thiago, caught an injury in the warm up. What started as a bad practical joke on Twitter, soon became reality, with Naby Keita stepping up to the first team. The tears of Thiago (on the sidelines) resonated with the Liverpool fanbase, and his failure to make the squad saw Harvey Elliott take a place on the reds bench. The reds look irregular in the …
Observations: Liverpool 3-1 Norwich - What a difference a day makes

Observations: Liverpool 3-1 Norwich - What a difference a day makes

Liverpool came into the match safely in the top four, in the thick of three cup competitions and barely in the chase for the Premier League title. The nine point gap with a game in hand wasn’t insurmountable in any normal circumstance, but Manchester City is no normal opponent. Klopp’s selection reflected that reality as he put out a heavily rotated team that looked more like a Carabao Cup side than one that the manager would put out in a …
Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool continued their 100% winning start to the Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield. Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored the goals in front of full Anfield house as the Reds, after a slow start, deservedly swept to victory against Sean Dyche's visitors. Burnley, who were undefeated away to Liverpool for two seasons, started well and they tested Alisson early when Dwight McNeil -- comfortably their best player on the day -- let rip with …

For the home team to finish third, just five points off second, in a season where they were decimated by injuries and plagued by misfortune, is …
Lacklustre Liverpool On Champions League Knife Edge After Madrid Defeat

Lacklustre Liverpool On Champions League Knife Edge After Madrid Defeat

Liverpool's Champions League hopes are on a knife-edge after a 3-1 defeat away to Real Madrid. The hosts took a 2-0 lead half-time through goals from Vinicius Junior and Marco Asensio in a dominant 45-minute display. The Reds improved in the second period and half the deficit to 2-1 after Mohamed Salah scored, but any hopes of a comeback were quashed when Vinicius completed his brace with a low shot past Alisson. Overall, the visitors -- who would have been …
Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool's top-four prospects were given a shot in the arm after a 1-0 win away to Wolves. Returning to his former club, Diogo Jota scored the game's solitary goal and gave the Reds what was -- on the overall balance -- a deserved win. The visitors started the game in a shaky fashion and this was typified by Alisson. Coming to claim a routine cross from Adama Traore, the Brazilian made unconvincing contact and the ball spilled into the path …
Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool fell to club-record fifth consecutive Premier League home defeat with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield. Mason Mount's first-half goal separated the teams in a result that could well prove a hammer blow to the Reds' Champions League qualification prospects. Controversy ensued when Jurgen Klopp replaced Mohamed Salah late on, despite the Egyptian looking like the host's best chance of manufacturing a goal, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino -- both of whose performances were well below their …
