Fabinho: O Shithouse! My Shithouse!

Fabinho: O Shithouse! My Shithouse!

It’s been a long, long time. Too long in fact. Javier Mascherano was the last of the Liverpool midfielders that really liked to put the boot in, that engaged in the dark arts of utter sh*thousery, doing the dirty work to make his more electrifying counterparts sparkle. Now, that mantle has been well and truly taken. Finally, a steely, hardened midfielder sits at the base of Liverpool’s midfield, his arms spread wide, commanding “Ye shall not pass.” In actuality, it’s …
Stupendous Liverpool Firing On All Cylinders

Stupendous Liverpool Firing On All Cylinders

Liverpool are on the brink of a historic season as they turned in an absolutely fantastic performance to see off Chelsea at Anfield. The Reds have managed to play their way into some excellent form, following up wins against Spurs, Southampton and Porto with their first win at home to Chelsea in seven years, and are now just four wins away from potentially winning their first league title in 30 years, as well as being half-way to a Champions League …

Out of Contract Porto Stars Would Energise Liverpool Midfield

Liverpool take on Porto next week in their Champions League second leg encounter at the Estádio do Dragão, but the match offers an extra degree of interest. Porto midfielders, Yacine Brahimi and Héctor Herrera, are both out of contract this summer and could possibly be destined for Anfield next season. Liverpool have missed the attacking midfield flair of Philippe Coutinho this season and have yet to replace the iconic playmaker. Goals have been hard to come by from midfield as …

Man of the Match as Liverpool dispatch Chelsea 2-0

Man of the Match as Liverpool dispatch Chelsea 2-0

As Jordan Henderson moves seamlessly from defensive midfield to a more advanced role, I look to do similar by taking up the 'Man of the Match' element of this week's post-match work, rotating my 'Virgil Van Dijk (8): What a lovely beard he has' player rating duties to the lovely Aaditya Narayan. And what a game to pick just one player from! The Reds fight another day in the title race with a 2-0 win over Chelsea, quickfire second-half strikes …

Liverpool 2-0 Chelsea: Observations as Salah screamer sends Reds back to the top

Nerves? What nerves? Liverpool delivered the latest statement that they refuse to bow down in the ongoing title race. Watching Manchester City coast to another comfortable win despite many suggesting Crystal Palace could be a potential bogey fixture, the pressure was on Jurgen Klopp's side to respond. And so they did, emphatically dispatching Chelsea 2-0 to rid of the cobwebs left from 2013/14 and usurp their title rivals right back to top spot. Here are the observations from the match. …
Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

Player Ratings as Reds pull off massive 2-0 win over Chelsea

What a massive win! Liverpool were definitely the better side as they beat Chelsea 2-0 at Anfield. Sadio Mane opened the scoring, before Mohamed Salah thundered in a long-ranger at the Kop End to double the lead. The Reds had a few nervy moments after being two goals up, when Eden Hazard hit the post once, and forced a save off Alisson, but post that, there were no worries for the Reds. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - …
Naby-Mania is Running Wild, Brother

Naby-Mania is Running Wild, Brother

It may have taken longer than expected but Naby Keita has finally arrived for Liverpool. After showing glimpses at various times throughout the season, the £52million signing has had a big impact in the past week for the Reds. With top spot on the line, the Liverpool No.8 opened his account for the club against Southampton with an uncharacteristic goal - a stooping header at the back post - to level the game on the night. He then drilled in …
Time to ditch the agendas in Liverpool's quest for glory

Time to ditch the agendas in Liverpool's quest for glory

With five games to go in the Premier League, and with one foot in the Champions League semi-final, Liverpool's season is finely poised with glory tantalisingly close. It's so close, in fact, that you can almost taste it. The long 29 year wait for a league title is as close to coming to an end as it has been since the ill-fated 2013/14 season. Following last season's disappointment in the Champions League final in Kiev, the Reds stand a very …
