Tottenham 0-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as history-making Reds keep winning

Liverpool won. Now, that's not much of a story these days, is it? Roberto Firmino's goal at the end of the first half gave the Reds a 1-0 victory on their first visit to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, as Jurgen Klopp's men won their 20th game of the season. The Reds' 61 points in 21 games is the highest ever tally a team has recorded in a top-flight season in Europe's top 5 leagues. Liverpool had to hang on a …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Who Was Boy of the Match?

Even against a Liverpool team with an average age of 8 years old, Everton still could not find a way to win at Anfield. That old Shankly quote about the Liverpool reserves being the second best team on Merseyside has never been more relevant than it is today. The Reds move into the 4th round of the FA Cup, despite Klopp’s best efforts, and continue their incredible run of form at home. In goal, Adrian had a lot more to …

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

"This was a marvellous tactical battle, but for Nuno Espirito Santo, despite his best efforts, couldn’t quite deliver a surprise in morphing into Nuno Espirito Santa(!!!), but with Liverpool, rather unexpectedly, now four points clear of Manchester City, it seems Christmas may just have come early…" - Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown, 23/12/2018
It's remarkable how much, and at the same time, how little has changed in just over a year. Indeed, given Wolves' comeback against Manchester …
Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: Who Was Man of the Match?

We end 2019 with yet another 3 points at Anfield. It was a bit of a grind but, in the end, a deserved win despite a somewhat lacklustre performance. It was clear the team was suffering from the relentless fixture pile-up over this Christmas period and were unable to play with the same intensity as against Leicester. The win was all that mattered, though, and the Reds bagged another one. In goal, Alisson was solid as ever. He didn’t have …

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves - Player Ratings as Reds grind out another Anfield win

Of course, the talk will be about VAR. But Liverpool have just won their 18th Premier League game out of  19 this season. They've gone back to 13 points atop the Premier League, after Sadio Mane's first-half goal sealed a 1-0 win over a plucky Wolves side at Anfield. Here's how each player fared for the Reds. Alisson Becker - 7/10 He had one save to make, after an inexplicable Van Dijk error set Jota free. Alisson made that save. …
Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

Before the match, both Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers refused to talk about what this match meant as to the title race. Maybe they both knew what was coming because no one watching this game would have pegged it as a title decider. The gulf in class between Liverpool and Leicester was immense, and the scoreline reflected it. There can be no doubt now that the Reds are the best side in the world and that the Premier League title …
Tactical analysis: Henderson's new role in absence of Fabinho

Tactical analysis: Henderson's new role in absence of Fabinho

By Reece Chambers When Liverpool signed Fabinho from AS Monaco in July 2018 for an estimated £40million, there was a degree of uncertainty as to what he would bring to Jurgen Klopp’s team.  He had previously played at right-back and centre midfield for Monaco, and did so to great avail, as he helped his side reach the UEFA Champions League semi-final. But with a scarce international career with Brazil, many fans were left to speculate what he would provide at …

Player Ratings as Liverpool are crowned Champions of the World

Well it wasn’t easy, but Liverpool are Champions of the World for the first time in their history. It was far from a stellar performance, but once again the Reds did enough to get the victory.  Now, let’s see how each player performed individually. Alisson - 6 A few poor passes and didn’t look as assured on the ball as usual. However, he made a couple of important saves. Alexander-Arnold - 6 Got caught out a couple of times defensively …
Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool progress to the final of the Club World Cup after a far from convincing 2-1 win over Monterrey. The Reds left it late once again, but Roberto Firmino’s injury-time goal was enough to clinch the victory following Naby Keita’s opener and Funes Mori’s leveller. The team selected to start the game was unorthodox, to say the least, which showed in the performance. It was always going to be difficult with so many out injured or rested, all that mattered …
Firmino Fires Liverpool Into World Final

Firmino Fires Liverpool Into World Final

A late goal from substitute Roberto Firmino sealed Liverpool's passage to Saturday's Club World Cup final in the Reds' 2-1 win over Monterrey of Mexico. Naby Keita had given the much changed side picked by Jurgen Klopp the lead, but Rogelio Funes Mori equalised two minutes later and 1-1 was how the score would stay until the 90th minute when Firmin0 --who replaced Divock Origi -- tapped in a sumptuous cross from fellow substitute Trent Alexander Arnold. The European Champions …
