Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

A late goal from substitute Adam Lallana salvaged a point for Liverpool in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening. The home team had lead through a Marcus Rashford goal mired in controversy but Lallana, who replaced Jordan Henderson, had the simple task of converting Andrew Robertson's cross into an empty net in the 85th minute. The beginning of the game was typical of a first match after an international break; slack passes were compounded by …

But soon the cogs of the winning machine started turning again, with Mohamed Salah striking the decisive blow to get the reigning champions off the mark. This wasn't quite the …

Last season, it was more or less a case of a wretched team performance, but on the whole the Reds turned in a decent display at this time, even if their attacking bluntness returned.

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
