Observations as Liverpool dig out yet another win to stay alive

It was nervy. The tension was rattling. It was not a nice feeling. With time dwindling, Liverpool had little margin for error. Liverpool didn't err. The tension was broken through. The nerves were all settled. From the South Coast, the Reds will head back to Merseyside with three points. Here are the key observations from the game. Horrific Start Well, it would have been nice to see Liverpool have more control of midfield, right from the get-go, but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg …
Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

It was unconvincing, it was last-ditch, it was downright exhausting, but crucially for Liverpool, it was victory. They are back on top of the Premier League with their rivals' fixtures about to get significantly tougher. The performance, it has to be said, wasn't good. But Liverpool won this game thanks to a big call from their manager and a big moment from a big player. The Reds seem to be in a 'win by whatever means necessary mode', and so …

Match Report: Liverpool's Little Dancer Does It!

Hold me closer little dancer, Count the headlights on the highway, Lay me down in sheets of linen, You've had a busy day today. How much did Liverpool need Mo Salah to score that goal? How much did Naby Keita need to come through like that? How much did Jordan Henderson need to grab the reins of this team and be a big part of a clutch victory? Strange to say about a Liverpool side that is two wins away …

Spurs spurred it! Liverpool fortunate winners at Anfield.

Spurs spurred it! Liverpool fortunate winners at Anfield.

Were you worried? Ye of little faith. Jurgen Klopp left his summer midfield acquisitions on the bench, leading to plenty of pre-match consternation. James Milner started in midfield along with Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum, leaving all of us to wonder what on earth was wrong with Naby Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri. Going off of the assumption that Jurgen Klopp isn’t trying to throw the league away like we did the domestic cups, one would have to guess that the …

Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Liverpool romped to a 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-final stages, the fourth English club to achieve such a feat. Having struggled to recreate the kind of form witnessed in Europe last season, this was a return to the best of the best, with Jurgen Klopp's side fending off another European heavyweight with relative ease. Cunning on the counter-attack and defensively solid, there were few holes to a performance that will …

Liverpool turned in an exceptional and comprehensive away performance at the Allianz Arena to win 3-1 and dump Bayern Munich out of the Champions League. But what were the key stats from an incredible European night that saw Liverpool cruise into the quarter-finals? Bayern Shut Out Liverpool’s attack has been much vaunted in European competition, but it was their much-improved defence that saw them qualify from this tie over the two legs. Bayern were restricted to just 0.4 xG in …
Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

In the days leading up to the match, all of the talk was about Naby Keita’s lack of playing time and then his reported injury. Then the line-up card came out and it was lacking the other midfield addition, sending Liverpool supporters into meltdown. Even the captain was upset that he got picked ahead of Fabinho, apparently. With a Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum midfield everyone expected us to come out pressing our arse off, but a collision with that colossus, James …
