Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …
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 …

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …

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 …
Jurgen Klopp hails substitute as man of the match in last Saturday's win over Brighton

Jurgen Klopp hails substitute as man of the match in last Saturday's win over Brighton

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was eager to heap praise on The Reds' sub goalkeeper Adrian after his surprise late appearance in Saturday's win against Brighton Adrian was on the bench and not expect to be called into action so late in the game. However, when Liverpool's first-choice 'keeper Alisson received a straight red card for handling the ball outside the box, Adrian had to come on. Immediately, Brighton scored a quickly-taken free-kick which caught Adrian out as the Spaniard was …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Topple Leicester City

The Reds keep marching on after a dramatic 95th-minute penalty from James Milner sealed all 3 points. Liverpool should have had the game wrapped up much earlier but wasted a number of opportunities, allowing Leicester the chance to level late on. However, it was a thoroughly deserved win which will undoubtedly boil the piss of the rest of the Premier League, so that’s nice, isn’t it? Adrian – 5 Was decent up until the goal, but you can’t be letting those …
