Liverpool v Newcastle - Its Time To Remind People

Liverpool v Newcastle - Its Time To Remind People

Liverpool v Newcastle - Its Time To Remind People Arsenal currently sit top of the league, and have had a quite lovely start to their own league season. Brighton are perched nicely within the top 4, and whereas one set of these fans know what this means, the other would have you believe they are contenders. Picking which is which is pretty easy I’m sure. A few days ago we saw Liverpool decimate a shell shocked Bournemouth team, to send …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Well that was one way to bounce back after a terrible start to the season. Having dropped seven points in their first three games, Liverpool took Bournemouth to the cleaners on Saturday afternoon at Anfield. A joint Premier League record victory of 9-0 had Anfield on its feet as last season's runners up showed the newly promoted side what life in the top flight is all about. Liverpool tied Manchester United, who have won 9-0 twice - against Ipswich in …

Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

What a lovely palate cleanser. After the horror of the first 3 games of the season, the Reds were able to let out a big exhale of tension with a record-matching victory of nine goals over Bournemouth. But what were the Key Stats as Klopp's men put the Cherries to the sword? Goals Goals Goals Liverpool got this record margin of victory from a similarly impressive xG difference of 3.23 to 0.29. Trebling that with finishing is needed too, of …
Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

The Starters: Alisson Becker – 7 Well positioned to clear or gather any slightly overhit long ball, which came in useful once or twice. Didn't have much to do, but did it well. Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 What a strike! Trent looks like he's got something back after an underwhelming start to the season, but today he looked ready to win, and comfortably. Not every pass comes off as envisioned, but he gets enough of the hard ones right, putting …
Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Jordan Henderson and James Milner need to be dropped, with clear limitations brought into their roles on the pitch. Neither can compete at the Premier League level anymore, and thus youth should be preferred whenever possible. It is not a targeted attack or misdirected opinion to state fact, and continuing poor performances do not lie. If circumstances dictate one of Milly or Hendo must start, then the other should only ever come into the game to replace the other. To …
Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …

Manchester United vs Liverpool - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Three games, two draws and a defeat, seven points dropped. The start to this season has gone from "less than ideal" to farcical. The Premier League fixture generator was very nice to Liverpool to begin the season. Let's not pretend otherwise. This was a straightforward start to the season for a team with title winning ambitions. Newly promoted Fulham, struggling to get players in the door. A Crystal Palace team who, while talented, had a mess of a pre-season due …
Liverpool FC & The Damning State Of Play

Liverpool FC & The Damning State Of Play

Being almost unsurprised by the defeat at Manchester United, kind of sums of where Liverpool FC are right now. Since the departure of Gini, they have simply let the standards of the midfield drop dramatically, and watching Monday's game only signified that the Reds are in need of new blood. The signing of Thiago two years ago is the only first team ready player signed since then, and is a damning reality that has really started to bite. Naby Keita …

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 5.0 Had an early scare, with the post coming to his aid. Could do little for the opening goal as United pulled the Reds backline apart. A great fingertip stop from Eriksen’s free kick stopped the home side doubling their lead. The second goal was a great strike, and though it would be harsh to judge him on the goals, he seemed hesitant and not his usual …
Manchester United v Liverpool - The Reds Must Find Their Ruthless Side

Manchester United v Liverpool - The Reds Must Find Their Ruthless Side

I’ve just watched Manchester City draw away to Newcastle, after seeing Leeds take a beleaguered  Chelsea apart. This period of the Premier League appears to more and more unpredictable, as certain teams come to terms with the shortened pre season and alterations in their teams. After the reds failed to beat Crystal Palace last Monday, I was starting to grow concerned, but I also stated that if this were to be our inevitable blip, maybe it isn’t all that bad …
