Player Ratings as Klopp keeps his balls off the table

Player Ratings as Klopp keeps his balls off the table

Training's cancelled on Tuesday, sorry lads. Klopp's got to go and attend a maths lesson, in order to learn that 1 win and 1 loss = 3 points, whereas 2 draws = 2 points. Honestly, I understand the conservatism to an extent but we had Everton. We had them. Forget the second half for a moment, in the first 45 we had two or three excellent chances, they didn't have a shot on target. They were bullied, pegged back and …

Player ratings as Reds rout Watford

That was alright, wasn't it? Manchester City can take their dodgy penalty, 1-0 win. I'll have five fabulous goals served up by those beautiful men in red, keeping us top of the table and dreaming for a few more days at least. Everton at Goodison on Sunday will offer more of a challenge, however that is tomorrow's focus. Tonight, sleep easy thinking about that league table. Hat-trick for TAA Alisson Becker (7): Another clean sheet, is it? 3-0 up and he …
Player Ratings as injuries dominate proceedings at Old Trafford

Player Ratings as injuries dominate proceedings at Old Trafford

That was absolutely rubbish. Up there with the most tedious of Liverpool display's I've seen in years. Yes, fair enough, we may end up looking back at Manchester United 0-0 Liverpool and hailing it as a 'good point', but in the context of the 90 minutes it was turgid. United forced into more tactical reshuffles via injuries (3) than the Reds had shots on target (1). A performance devoid of inspiration, creativity and most importantly, goals. Here's your ratings. Forgive …
Player Ratings as Bayern hold off Reds at Anfield

Player Ratings as Bayern hold off Reds at Anfield

What are we all making of that, then? I'm quite satisfied with the result. Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich and all the Reds must do now is score and avoid defeat at the Allianz Arena. Given Bayern's home record that does seem a mission. However, there was enough to see tonight that suggests Liverpool can fancy their chances. With Virgil van Dijk back we'll hopefully see an improved Andy Robertson (there's a clue about his rating), whilst Trent Alexander-Arnold will be …
Player Ratings as Liverpool draw in London

Player Ratings as Liverpool draw in London

Liverpool’s lead at the top is now just two points after another frustrating draw against West Ham. GOALKEEPER: Alisson 6 Carried no fault from the goal and did well dealing with everything else thrown at him. DEFENCE: James Milner 6 Struggles against Anderson as many expected him to do, lacking the pace of Trent Alexander Arnold but he did get forward well, to his credit. Even though he was wildly offside for the goal. Cheers ref. Virgil van Dijk 6 …
Player ratings as Liverpool are foiled by the Foxes

Player ratings as Liverpool are foiled by the Foxes

Where to start with that one? A point gained, two points lost? Klopp's substitutions? The refereeing? The pitch? Liverpool go five points clear. In a week where Manchester City played away at one of the worst teams in the league, we've extended our lead. Yet, it could have been so much more. Sadio Mané's early goal had us set up for a perfect evening, only for Slabhead Maguire to spoil everyone's fun. 1-1 and onto the next one, I suppose. …

Player ratings as the Reds go all 2013-14 on us

I've got a good friend who supports Crystal Palace. If I didn't, I'd be doing rain dances in the garden in the hope they get relegated. Never mind the owl that manages them, they're actually an alright club. Passionate fans, decent football, the legend that is Mamadou Sakho. I just can't hack playing them, I'm only 20 and my heart feels like it's about to blow. Struggling to get my head around that one? We concede three but I can …
Player Ratings as Liverpool are eliminated from FA Cup

Player Ratings as Liverpool are eliminated from FA Cup

This game was always going to be a strange one. Should Klopp go for it and risk injuries to key players in the midst of a genuine title challenge? Or should he play a youthful eleven, succumbing a chance to obtain his first piece of silverware since taking over for Brendan Rodgers? Many fans hoped for the former, with attentions firmly fixed elsewhere on the Reds' upcoming Premier League game against Brighton, the perfect time to offer a response after …
Player Ratings as City beat Liverpool to close the gap

Player Ratings as City beat Liverpool to close the gap

Lots of talk about City’s injuries in the last few weeks and the difference there was that the Reds missed key defenders, whilst the hosts had Fernandinho back to deliver a Man of the Match performance. Liverpool have played better and worse his season, they’ll walk away rueing a potential Kompany red and the introduction of goal line technology. Most importantly, they still walk away with a four point lead. Ratings... A Lovren special Alisson (7): Can’t do anything about …
Player Ratings as Bobby Dazzles against Gunners

Player Ratings as Bobby Dazzles against Gunners

The cheek of Arsenal. How rude, turning up at Anfield and trying to take Liverpool's points away. The absolute cheek of the Gunners to rock up and dare to score the opening goal. Liverpool in sparkling form with a 5-1 win, putting Unai Emery's men back in their place. Here are your ratings... Every inch of Virgil Alisson (8): That pass is fucking sensational. Few goalkeepers in the league can pull that off, let have the audacity to try it when …
