Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 8.5 A pretty routine first half for the giant Brazilian, with possession of the ball more apparent than anything else. Made a great stop early in the second half as the game opened up. Didn’t have much to do after that, but his moments were once again critical. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.0 Martinelli certainly gave him worrying moments in the first half, with his smart movement. A …

Under Pressure: Textbook Rotation, Perfect Pressing and Naby's Great Form

Liverpool may have lost to Inter Milan at Anfield, but the Under Pressure boys soon to put to bed any doubt that the Reds deserved to go through with a comprehensive run down of the key stats from the two legged tie: 3.1 xG to 0.8 coupled with FIVE big chances to the Italian side's zero. Case closed. However, the main focus of the podcast was the victory over Brighton - including the continued impressive rotation, the controlled pressing and …
The Salah Ultimatum

The Salah Ultimatum

I want Mohamed Salah to sign a new contract with Liverpool, as he’s the world's best player, performing to the peak of his powers. He is perhaps the most remarkable signing in Liverpool's history, and the success that has been garnered (during his stay), is as much to do with him as anyone else. This last week has seen Liverpool fans made aware of his contract stalemate, and the fact that a new one remains unsigned. The numbers are relatively …

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

In a game where Liverpool actually had slightly less possession, it was a clear case of managing the match accordingly. The Reds rarely had to stretch themselves, and short of the odd and inevitable moment, they cruised to a comfortable 0-2 victory. Brighton are in a slump, not a free fall slump, but a worrying run of form. This marks five Premier League losses on the spin for Graham Potter, and the mid-table safety they hold appears to have seen …

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Man of the Match

Luis Diaz The South American flyer was at times sensational today, and has quickly become a player that the fans adore. His unpredictable nature, movement of the ball and ability to engage defenders was very much apparent today. He scored a goal, could have had more, could have been supplied more efficiently & was a creative force throughout. He’s starting to cause mayhem and panic for opposing defenders, and might just be Liverpool's most impressive player since he arrived. The …

Key Stats as Liverpool cruise past Brighton

Liverpool didn't have too much trouble at the Amex Stadium as they earned a comfortable 2-0 win, thanks to goals from Luis Diaz and Mo Salah. But what were the key stats as they got back to 3 points of Manchester City, at least until Monday.

Brighton actually had 52% possession, only the third time that a team has had …

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 A nice solid, and uneventful game for Ali. A great stop towards the end showed his supreme ability to stay focused. Got clattered, but still was great with the ball at his feet and commanded his area. Had a busy last few moments, and the collision probably made him even more determined to keep that clean sheet. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 Starting to become bullish and dominant in his defensive work, and clearly, there’s a …

Thank You For Your Service

Watching Luis Diaz this past month has driven home the logic in reshaping this Liverpool squad. With any elite group of players, there simply has to be a moment where peak becomes decline, and strong decisions have to made. In the case of this superb Liverpool group, there are now certain players that could inevitably end up leaving, and this piece will focus on their potential destinations and the likely replacements. 1 - James Milner There’s a pretty even split …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …

Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Compared to the previous week - with victories over Leeds and Chelsea - this was a more cerebral affair, especially in terms of goals scored and how eventful the matches were; however, in the context of the season, the victory over West Ham might turn out to be more important. On Jan Molby's Anfield Index show there was plenty of topics to discuss, including: using the whole squad, while balancing the need to keep them all happy, and how that …
