Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The most assured pair of gloves in football, and with no fault for Villarreal’s first half goals, made one brilliant one on one stop. Became a spectator until Liverpool scored, which was a welcome sight. Had very little from there to deal with. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.5 After given a much needed breather at the weekend, the playmaking fullback came back in for Joe Gomez. He looked shaky, and unsure of how to play the ball …

Newcastle 0 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The nervy situations were inevitable, but this man dealt with such moments like the worlds greatest keeper should. The chances for Newcastle were limited, but everything was smothered by the giant Brazilian. Joe Gomez - 8.5 Effort and tenacity in abundance. He was up and down the line constantly, and looks like the relative freedom is being basked in. The odd cross field ball was on point, and the crossing was pretty good too. The defensive …

Newcastle 0 - 1 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Naby Keita It’s amazing that he’s Liverpool’s third best midfielder this season, with such a brilliant term of form. He kept things ticking today, was efficient in possession, and pressed whenever it was required. Such a balanced player, that simply has to play when Thiago does not. The goal was critical, and he took it like a seasoned striker. His movement quality today stood out, and he was the player able to drive from midfield …

Observations: The Reds celebrate Jurgen's new contract with a win

Today Liverpool were the calmest ones in the room. Many fans will have been increasingly nervous as the seconds ticked by and the scoreline stayed at just 1-0, but despite a few misplaced passes, the Reds stayed as calm as you like, defended the space, and gave up nothing to see out the win. Newcastle had a measly 4 shots in the game, all of which were from considerable distance and didn't give Alisson much trouble. Joe Gomez, rotated in …

Thiago Alcantara He controlled every facet of the first half, with superb finesse and awareness of movement around him. With a low block in front of him throughout, he unleashed a beautiful shot before the break, that shook the crossbar. Though Trent was also brilliant, Thiago was able to dictate everything around him. His range of passing, control of tempo, and class in possession was world class. There’s no better central midfield player in world football right now, and Liverpool …
Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Observations: Half Time against Villarreal

Only half time, that will be the message Jurgen Klopp gives to his lads after they beat Villarreal 2-0 at Anfield. But it was a truly dominant first half, with the yellow submarine only managing a single shot in the whole match, and even that could barely be called such as Lo Celso stretched to get to the ball. It was a pretty much perfect display from Liverpool. The counter-press was particularly impressive today, as Fabinho had a fantastic game …

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The monster keeper was a certain starter, but he was a virtual spectator through the first half. Concentration (and whether to grab a snack from the crowd) was all he had to do, before a poor Villarreal corner on 73 minutes. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 9.0 After a tricky derby, he was tasked with showing more composure. He seemed keen to show strength in defense from the off, and he really started to purr as the half …
A Defining Week Of Football For Liverpool FC

A Defining Week Of Football For Liverpool FC

Once again and as with every week, Liverpool enter into a defining week that could shake their season to its core. After the Reds overcame a horrendous Everton side on Sunday, they remain one point behind leaders Manchester City. They are currently in the final of the FA Cup, and are about to embark on their semi-final in the Champions League, with the Premier League chase on going. On the day I write this, Manchester City are about to play …

Liverpool 2 - 0 Everton - Man Of The Match

Andy Robertson Maybe the best period of form of his Liverpool career. His determination in clear, his goal to drag the reds to a quadruple unwavering. The opening goal was such a relief, and just isn’t something left backs do. This left back however, is a ferocious player that isn’t accepting dropped points and the header was sensational. His delivery and aggression was good, and his ability to drive up and down the line is quite breathtaking. The world's best …

Divock Origi absolutely loves playing Everton. I'm sure you'll hear that in every article about this game, but it's worth saying anyway. There is no-one better at coming up with the goods at the perfect moment, in the hour of direst need. It seems very likely that Origi will be leaving Liverpool at the end of this season, but if that is to be the case, what a way to say goodbye. Liverpool beat Everton by 2 goals to 0 …
