On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Hari Sethi and Karl Matchett reflect on a dominant Liverpool performance which will see them go into the international fortnight at least 5 points clear of their nearest rivals on the back of a 2-1 home win over Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City. On a dramatic afternoon, Leicester provided a stern defensive barrier, which Jürgen Klopp’s wasteful Reds breached with regularity, whilst conceding only a solitary (and successful) shot on goal over the 90. As ever, the performances and key moments are analyzed and there is appropriate reveling in the injury time VAR-checked penalty by James Milner. Lovely stuff.

With The Reds sitting pretty at the top of the table, it would be churlish to moan about the nature of the win but it’s not all sweetness and light as your RAW analysts look at some of the things Jürgen Klopp’s side can still improve upon. Overall, however, it’s job done.

There are several things to have a bit of a moan about, from substitutes to conceding territory and impetus in the second half, but the overall reaction from all three lads is that The Reds pulled off a fantastic result. As ever, all major moments and the individual performances are analysed and assessed and the VAR chat alone is worth your time.
On the latest RAW Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett discuss a very rare Liverpool defeat after The Reds suffered a 2-0 loss in the San Paolo against Napoli. Carlo Ancelotti’s men were a real test for Jürgen Klopp’s Premier League leaders and a combination of their good play, some disjointed football from Liverpool and a massively controversial penalty call led to another away defeat in Europe for the reigning Champions. As ever, all incidents and performances get put under the RAW microscope.

As usual, the lads assess the individual performances and all the major talking points, with Bobby Firmino receiving much of the plaudits and Adrian being lauded for his keeping of a clean sheet. However, if you’re hoping for a long angsty section on the so-called falling-out between Mo Salah and Sadio Mané, I’m afraid the lads don’t share your concern.

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Dave Hendrick and Karl Matchett reflect on Liverpool’s European Super Cup win. It was a bit of a mixed bag in terms of performance but having travelled to Istanbul, played gruelling extra time in draining humidity and then endured a penalty shoot-out, the only thing that mattered was that Jordan Henderson finished the night with his nifty patented trophy lift. He did. It was, however, Adrian who found himself as the star of the show on the night. As ever, the lads analyse the key moments, the individual performances and the tactical approach. It’s RAW…and it’s back with a bang.

It was a night of outrageous achievement against the odds, with Mo Salah, Bobby Firmino, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain and then, for the second half, Andy Robertson, all unavailable.

Suffice it to say that one man comes out poorly but several others receive varying degrees of praise for a job delightfully done. The Reds go into the last game of the Premier League season in with a shout and despite the loss of two of their most potent attacking threats, a CL final remains possible. These are happy days.

On the latest RAW, Trev Downey, Karl Matchett and Mo Chatra pull apart the ninth Reds win on the bounce as Jürgen Klopp’s men responded to the challenge of Manchester City and comfortably beat Cardiff to go back to the top of the Premier League.
