Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Liverpool had their 100% winning record at home in the league taken away from them, after poor finishing and inspired keeper saw them frustratingly draw 1-1 at home to Burnley. Andy Robertson's arching header gave the Reds a merited lead before the visitors -- who were only in the contest thanks to heroics from keeper, Nick Pope -- stole an equaliser through an angled Jay Rodrigues volley. The hosts had two clear penalty shouts denied in a frustrating afternoon. With …

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley - Player Ratings as Reds are made to pay for profligacy

A combination of an inspired Nick Pope in the Burnley goal and some shoddy Liverpool finishing meant that the Reds' perfect Anfield record for the Premier League season brought to a halt with a 1-1 draw against Sean Dyche's side. Andy Robertson gave the Reds the lead in the first half, but Jay Rodriguez equalised late in the second, as the Reds endured a frustrating afternoon. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - 6/10 Nothing he could've done for …
Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Liverpool's title party was brought to an abrupt end after they were walloped 4-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade Chamberlain own goal condemned the full-strength, yet at times shambolic Reds to a heavy defeat. Despite some good chances, the visitors -- many of whom looked to feeling the impact of their league winning celebrations -- fluffed several chances and the hosts capitalized on all their opportunities. …
Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Liverpool were back in Premier League action for the first time in over three months and it was an absolutely rubbish game of football. A 0-0 draw at Goodison Park feels like a story we’ve heard before, and sadly Liverpool’s wait for the title will now extend beyond their home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they dropped points for just the third time all season. The Lovren Effect Dejan Lovren replaced the injured Joël Matip with fifteen minutes …
Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

The Premier League is well and truly back. Excitement at seeing Keita in the team, Milner picking up a needless yellow and Liverpool drawing 0-0 at Goodison Park. Almost like we never stopped, right? Admittedly not the best game ever for the neutral, Everton should have won truth be told. Still, we have an actual game of football to analyse, so let's get going with the ratings. Alisson dazzles Alisson Becker (8): If this game is played similarly three months ago, …
Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

After waiting eagerly for 106 days for Liverpool to get back into action, the Merseyside derby was in all honesty quite a languid affair. The hype far outweighed the action, as Liverpool toiled but rarely troubled Everton, who had the better chances at Goodison Park, but the spoils were shared as Merseyside welcomed back Premier League football. There were positives to take on the short trip back to Anfield; Naby Keita looked incredibly sharp and was easily Liverpool's stand-out man. …
Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

Liverpool Is Back! Sort of...

When the upcoming fixture list gets released, one of the biggest matches of the season is always Everton at Goodison Park. It is a match that carries great importance for the city and supporters of each side. As the first match back for both Liverpool and Everton since the Premier League shut down due to the coronavirus, the Merseyside Derby carried with it even more meaning this time around. As Jurgen Klopp has said, football is often the most important …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

After over 100 days without seeing the Reds in action in the Premier League, we were treated to as drab a derby as you’re ever likely to see. 0-0 was perhaps the most predictable scoreline when looking at the recent results at Goodison Park - combine that with the fact neither side has played a competitive match in three months, a scoreless draw was always very likely. Everton will perhaps feel a tad unlucky seeing as they forced a good …
Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Liverpool missed the chance to move closer to a 19th league title as they laboured to a scoreless draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The Reds owned the possession but -- shorn of the services of injury precaution rested Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson -- struggled to prize open the stubborn, deep sitting defence of the home team. The lack of fluency that a three-month break would engender on a team was evident and the visitors …
A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

A Fabinho & Keita post-lockdown masterclass?

In 2018, if Liverpool fans had been asked who the Reds' most important midfielders would be by the time 2019/20 ended, Fabinho and Naby Keita would likely have come out on top. The pair arrived during the summer of that year, with both considered elite footballers who could take Jurgen Klopp's ever-improving side to that next level. Liverpool's other midfielders were perfectly effective in their own right, but the two new additions seemingly represented another calibre of player - the …
