Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Joel Matip Came into the team at the weekend when Virgil got injured, and started tonight as the defensive leader. The most underrated defender in the league, he is so controlled and alert nowadays. The goal was vital, and came at a critical moment. Liverpool needed a big moment, and the giant defender gave his manager what was needed …

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Could do nothing for the opening goal, given the deflection. The first half was pretty routine from there. Did everything correct through a nervy last few minutes. Joe Gomez - 6.5 So disappointing to see this young man injured, again. Was lively and unlucky for the goal. Was part of the equaliser. Subbed - 45 mins Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 Gave good width, as Liverpool dominated the first half.His second half corner brought about Liverpools second …

Observations: Liverpool grind past Southampton

It's never easy these days is it? Seems as though every single match some random slice of misfortune strikes to put Liverpool on the back foot. In this game it was a freakish deflection looping past Alisson after one of the most blatant fouls you'll ever see wasn't given at the other end of the pitch. The Reds overcame the deficit to win 2-1 courtesy of goals from Takumi Minamino and Joel Matip, but it should never have gotten to …

History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …

I've seen this one before. Liverpool vs Chelsea in a domestic cup final. Both teams create lots of chances, though the Reds are slightly the better side. None of these are scored, with two excellent goalkeeping displays. Thomas Tuchel makes a sub deep in extra time, gambling on a penalty specialist. But eventually, Liverpool triumphed, holding their nerve to seal it in the shootout. Really someone should be asking what the scriptwriters have been doing these last few months, because …

For the third time under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds outlasted the detestable Chelsea FC in a penalty shootout to lift a trophy into the night sky. While Liverpool once again could not get a win in either regulation or extra time against the Blues, new heroes stepped up to complete the set for Herr Klopp. Alisson – 8 Shook off a knock in the first half after a clash with Marcos Alonso to put in a composed and vital display. …

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Luis Diaz Low key good performance, in a tough contest. The minutes are mounting, and fatigue is starting to show. Diaz had really good moments, and was brilliant in his delivery for Mane’s goal. He was perhaps less incisive from the right, but he stretched the play and still looked to run defenders at every opportunity …

Liverpool made it through a very chaotic game to manage a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa, but it was far from easy. This was incredibly stressful watching, and it started right from the off. Jurgen Klopp will be very irritated by the manner in which the game began, however, as the Reds conceded after just 3 minutes. In the build-up to the goal, Ollie Watkins was clearly offside, but the assistant didn't flag it and play continued. About a minute …

Alisson Becker - 7.0 A frenetic start saw Liverpool go behind, and Ali could probably have done little more to stop it. Nearly gifted an open goal, with an amazing pass into Watkins early on. Had little else to do in the second half as the Reds controlled, but was alert to stop Ings late on. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Showed good defensive awareness, as Villa looked to exploit the wide areas. His dangerous delivery started to explore the Villa …

Take The Red Pill

A point at home to a good Spurs side (who are managed by a world class manager), was seen as a major disappointment at the weekend. That is the mentality and level that this Liverpool team and manager have created, and one that should be respected for getting us to that point. The disappointment was real, but the door remains ajar on the reds hopes of achieving the improbable. In a period where Manchester City have been obscenely bankrolled by …
