Southampton 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds scrap to St. Mary's win

Given the circumstances, Liverpool came away from a potential banana-skin at St. Mary's with a superb three points, after beating Southampton 2-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. The Reds were dominated for large periods of the first half, but went into the break with Mané's stunning curler putting them in front. Firmino doubled the lead, before an Adrian howler sent the nerves jangling a little bit. But in the end, two and a half days after …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Beat Norwich 4-1

Liverpool kicked off the 2019/20 Premier League season with a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich. A bit of the old Liverpool came out with some very dodgy moments defensively, but, fortunately, the attack was at its scintillating best and was extremely clinical in the first half. There’s some work to be done for Jurgen Klopp’s men as you would expect a better side to punish us more with the chances afforded to the Canaries. However, the biggest cause for concern …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Lose Community Shield on Penalties

Liverpool concluded their pre-season preparations with a penalty shootout defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield. After a poor first-half performance, the Reds looked by far the better team in the second and probably deserved to come away with the “trophy”. Liverpool fans should be optimistic about the season ahead after this one with many players yet to hit full fitness and Sadio Mane still to return. Alisson: 6 Unlucky with the Sterling goal. Had …

Player ratings as Liverpool humiliate Barcelona

Just had a big cry. A big massive cry. A happy cry, though. Never had that sensation before in my 20 years on this planet, not particularly shocked that it's football that finally brings it out. These Reds. This gang of lads, a bunch that simply don't know when to quit. They've taken Lionel Messi's Barcelona, hungrier than they have been in years for a Champions League title, and taken them to task in possibly the greatest night Anfield has …

Newcastle 2-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds stay alive... just!

Before we start this piece, I'm going to have to tender an apology in advance. If any of the writing is incoherent, blame it on Liverpool Football Club and this priceless ability it has, to ensure that fans are never able to enjoy games in peace. Well, that was massive! It had to be done somehow, and it was done, as Jurgen Klopp picked up his first win at St. James' Park in a gripping 3-2 victory for the Reds …

Player Ratings as Reds have easy night in demolishing Huddersfield

After the pain and agony of recent victories, where Liverpool had to wait for the goals, it was nice to have a night like that. This season has been a running demonstration of a Huddersfield squad just not good enough to cut it in the Premier League, and they were put to the sword at Anfield, as the Reds toyed with them for a 5-0 win. They were off, up and running in 16 seconds, no less, when Naby Keita …

Cardiff 0-2 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds make it nine in a row

It may not have been the most enjoyable watch, but literally all that matters in the heat of this title battle is the end result. Jurgen Klopp's ever-patient, rarely-ruffled Reds continued their delightful habit of finding a way to win ahead of a potentially decisive Manchester derby on Wednesday. It was a set-piece that provided the opener against the resolute hosts shortly before the hour mark, with Georginio Wijnaldum lashing a bouncing ball beyond Neil Etheridge. Substitute James Milner then …

Player Ratings as scratchy Reds win 4-1 to make Champions League semi

How did that end 4-1? Well, you could argue Liverpool outclassed Porto in both penalty areas, and thoroughly deserved that result. And you'd be able to present a justifiable argument. But for large parts of that game, it just didn't look like Liverpool were going to win 4-1. Sadio Mané put the Reds on their way with a VAR-overturned goal, after the referee had initially disallowed it for offside. Mo Salah, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk put the gloss …

Player ratings as Liverpool defeat Porto

A good midfield performance, no away goals conceded and one foot into the last four. Pretty much all Jurgen Klopp could have asked for as Liverpool defeated Porto 2-0 in their Champions League quarter final first leg. Naby Keita opened the scoring via aid of a deflection early on before Roberto Firmino tapped in a second. Sadio Mané would’ve had a third had he not strayed narrowly offside, but two will do. Here’s your ratings. A clean sheet not minus …

Player Ratings as plucky Reds stay alive in title race: Saints 1 Liverpool 3

Phew. Breathe! Liverpool didn't make it easy for themselves. They haven't in a while, have they? But at this stage of the season, what matters is the result. That final result leads 3-1 in the favour of the Reds, as they beat a brave Southampton at St. Mary's. Shane Long put Southampton in the lead, but the Reds equalised before half-time, through Naby Keita's first goal for the club. Mo Salah and Jordan Henderson scored late in the game, to …
