Chelsea 1-0 Liverpool: It's Brighton or Madrid For The Reds

One team were busy booking a date with destiny in the newly named 'Sadio Olimpico' on Wednesday night. The other? Well, they enjoyed a week of preparation with all their eggs in domestic baskets after crashing out the competition earlier in the campaign. Inhibited by ongoing injury issues within the squad, Jurgen Klopp had little choice but to stick with his usual eleven at Stamford Bridge with the exception for Nathaniel Clyne, who replaced Jordan Henderson as  Trent moved into the …

Second Leg Bonanza Sees Reds Advance to Kiev

So, Liverpool are a bit good. Jurgen's Reds booked their place in the Champions League final following a 4-2 defeat in Rome (7-6 aggregate win) with another supreme performance among Europe's elite.

Observations as Liverpool Endure Another Stalemate

Funny isn't it. Tuesday night saw one of the most free-flowing attacking performances Liverpool have produced this season, possibly ever under Klopp. Running riot against Roma, five goals in the Champions League semi-final was no small feat; an indication of what this side are capable of in the final third. The contrast between that performance and Saturday's couldn't be starker. This was not a semi-final contest with the possibility of a trip to Kiev and a chance for Klopp to …

Roma Rampage Offers a Glimpse of What Midfield Can Do

Liverpool’s irrepressible front three once again stole the show as the Reds gloriously ripped Roma apart in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final but, for 80 minutes at least, it was close to a perfect team performance. As so often under Jurgen Klopp, a manager who licks his lips rather than quakes in his boots on the big occasion, the Reds raised their level for a massive game, unlocking the frightening extent of their offensive capabilities as the …
