Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings as VAR drama denies Reds a derby win

Everton 2-2 Liverpool: Player Ratings as VAR drama denies Reds a derby win

Liverpool drew 2-2 with Everton at Goodison Park, after a dramatic final few minutes, which saw Jordan Henderson's would-be winner cancelled out by VAR for offside. Sadio Mane gave the Reds an early lead, which was soon pegged back by Michael Keane. Mo Salah put the Reds back in front in the second half, but Dominic Calvert-Lewin brought Everton back level for a second time. Mané set up Henderson for what would have been the winner, but Liverpool were denied …
Liverpool Robbed By VAR In Goodison Derby

Liverpool Robbed By VAR In Goodison Derby

VAR controversy abounded as Liverpool were robbed of a late 3-2 victory over Everton at Goodison Park. With the game squared at 2-2 going into injury time, a perfectly good Jordan Henderson goal -- supposedly because Sadio Mané was offside, an assertion that had no evidence in tv pictures -- was disallowed and Everton hung on for a scantly deserved point. The Reds, whose performance was -- in the large part -- was excellent recovered well from their debacle at …
James Milner Is The Closest Thing To Javier Zanetti, Says Roy Hodgson

James Milner Is The Closest Thing To Javier Zanetti, Says Roy Hodgson

By John O’Sullivan  Former Inter Milan and England manager Roy Hodgson has likened the longevity and athleticism of James Milner to the legendary Argentinian international Javier Zanetti.  Hodgson has coached both players during his nomadic managerial career, which -- starting with Halmstad in Sweden in 1976 -- has spanned over forty years.  The current Crystal Palace manager worked with Zanetti during both his spells in charge of Inter, firstly between 1995 and 1997 and on a temporary basis in 1999, …

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven for Saturday's clash with Everton?

Premier League action returns this weekend with Liverpool playing Everton at Goodison Park in the early kick-off on Saturday. Everton sit top of the table at the moment, winning all four of their league games so far. Jürgen Klopp's Reds did start their campaign with three consecutive wins before then falling to a 7-2 hammering at the hands of Aston Villa. Liverpool will be eager to restore some of the pride lost at Villa Park almost two weeks ago when …
Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Analysis: Is the Liverpool press failing?

Liverpool's success since the appointment of Jurgen Klopp has been built around the press. Initially, it was full-throttle, relentless and tiring to watch. But as the team evolved, so did the press. Their approach was more meticulous, their approach was more intelligent and they seemed to take a more measured approach to it all. It made sense. The Reds weren't having to press as often because they now dominated the ball. However, as soon as there was a turnover they'd …

Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Liverpool will welcome back all of their international players in the next day or two after last night's UEFA Nations League action. Some players - such as Caoimhín Kelleher and Divock Origi - didn't get any game time on Wednesday night. Kelleher and Origi were unused substitutes for Ireland and Belgium respectively. Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum were in action in the Netherlands' 1-1 draw away to Italy. For England, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson continued his journey back to …
Mohamed Salah On Course For Brilliant Campaign.

Mohamed Salah On Course For Brilliant Campaign.

A hallmark of Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp has been their psychological strength. For every curb-ball thrown and every hurdle faced, the Reds have responded like the Champions they are. After losing the Champions League final in 2018 in the most heartbreaking of fashion, the bones of the same Liverpool squad -- minus Emre Can and with the additions of Fabinho, Alisson, and Naby Keita -- went one better the next season, defeating Tottenham 2-0 to win their sixth European crown. …

Reds step up training regime as some senior players return ahead of Everton clash

Reds step up training regime as some senior players return ahead of Everton clash

Liverpool continued their preparations for their trip to top-of-the-table Everton in the early game this coming Saturday. Jürgen Klopp and his coaching staff were able to work closely with several senior members of the first-team squad who are not away on international duty. Some good news is that Thiago Alcântara, Joël Matip and Sadio Mané all returned to training after being unavailable for the last few weeks (Thiago and Mané had COVID-19 while Matip was injured). Mohamed Salah and veteran …
Analysis: Has the Liverpool defensive line been exposed?

Analysis: Has the Liverpool defensive line been exposed?

Liverpool’s defensive line only seems to be put under the microscope after multiple goals are conceded in a single game. It’s an easy target for over the top, reactionary analysis. There was no real mention of it last season when the Reds conceded 17 goals in 27 Premier League matches. An average of 0.62 goals against per 90 which equates to 24 over the entirety of a Premier League campaign.  In those matches, the champions conceded two or more on …
