Liverpool 2-1 Monterrey: Player Ratings as Reds leave it late again

After almost two weeks of serene Liverpool winning games rather comfortably, the one that leaves it late and wins 2-1 showed up in Doha this evening, as the Reds beat Mexican side Monterrey 2-1 to progress to the final of the Club World Cup, where they will face Brazilian side Flamengo. Naby Keita put Liverpool ahead early, but Jurgen Klopp's men were pegged back immediately by Rogelio Funes Mori's equaliser. The Reds left it late, and it was up to …

Variety Is The Spice Of Life For Freescoring Liverpool.

Finally, after what felt like an interminable series of 2-1 victories, Liverpool have begun winning games by scoreline's that don't look like Azealia Banks songs. The 5-2 Merseyside Derby victory over Everton was followed by a 3-0 win away to Bournemouth as the Reds began to hit their attacking straps for what felt like the first time this season. The most notable feature of these two wins -- apart from the combined 12 changes made by Jurgen Klopp, as his …
Player Ratings as Liverpool stick five past the Ev

Player Ratings as Liverpool stick five past the Ev

There are holes to pick that performance and a nagging concern that Liverpool's defensive lapses will eventually lead to some dropped league points, but the day we stop beating our rivals 5-2 is the day we pack it all in. Divock Origi loves a big game, Sadio Mane is a magician and Everton are really bad are my main takeaways, and here are my ratings. Snide, silly errors and more from the defence Adrian (6): Not giving him too much blame …
Fabian Ruiz: The Ideal Reds Reinforcement

Fabian Ruiz: The Ideal Reds Reinforcement

All is not rosy in the garden for Liverpool's Champions League group opponents, Napoli. The Ancelotti-coached Serie A team are in the midst of a crisis started by the club's president film producer, Aurelio De Laurentiis. De Laurentiis, concerned about his teams start to the season, attempted to force the Napoli squad on a training retreat in order to reverse their poor form. The San Paolo stadium team find themselves 7th in the Serie A table and second, behind Liverpool, …
Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

Alexander Arnold The Hidden Midfielder In Plain Sight

The question of whether Trent Alexander Arnold will transition from a right back to a midfielder is often asked in footballing circle. Such is the 21 year old's unique skill-set, it is felt by many that he is wasted at full back. His talents, it is said, would be better suited to a more central position where he could receive the ball more and have a bigger influence on proceedings. The truth is, however, that the academy graduate -- despite …
Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Liverpool's Lallana Experiment Sets Positive Precedent

Jurgen Klopp raised a few eyebrows with his team selection for Liverpool's recent Premier League victory away to Aston Villa. With Fabinho walking a suspension tightrope ahead of this coming weekend's top of the table clash with Manchester  City, the Brazilian sat the game out. In his stead, most assumed that Jordan Henderson -- who played the number 6 role for two and a half season's under Klopp -- would slot in. However, in a move that surprised all Liverpool …
Have Liverpool Already Found Klopp's Successor?

Have Liverpool Already Found Klopp's Successor?

“Our identity is intensity.” They were more than words – a tagline, or perhaps an often-repeatable motto, that anyone would think came from Jürgen Klopp himself. But no, they came from his second in command, the man seemingly placed in charge of the Reds’ Capital One Cup campaign: Pepijn Lijnders. “All these boys from the city have so much passion and ambition as well. Take the Tottenham game, everybody says we had the most shots on target, we were constantly …
Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …
Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

That was a bit rubbish, wasn’t it? 1-1 feels like an acceptable result after the first 85 minutes of that game. We also had to contend with one of the worst refereeing performances you are ever likely to see from the pathetic Martin Atkinson. The man, if you can even extend that description to whatever subhuman species he actually is, was an absolute disgrace for the entirety of the match and deserves to be immediately relieved of his duties. Enough …
Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Well, that was horrendous. Liverpool should not have let this Manchester United side get away as easily as they did at Old Trafford tonight. The Reds went down in the first half to a contentious Marcus Rashford goal, but Adam Lallana's late equaliser spared the blushes, as Jurgen Klopp's men remained the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season. Right from the get-go, the Reds were lethargic, as shoddy passing and lazy movements defined the play in the …
