Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Man Of The Match

Trent Alexander-Arnold A great game for this special talent. His attacking play is undeniable, with two brilliant deliveries nearly seeing both his giant centre-backs score in the first half. Showed guile and control throughout on the ball, and was a constant threat in possession. His defensive ability can no longer be in doubt. Great coverage, awareness and strength, against a very good European team. Was able to control situations with maturity and confidence, and is becoming a leader in this …

Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool are through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after beating Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate. Lautaro Martinez ripped one beyond Alisson just after the hour but Inter had the wind in their sails for all of two minutes before Alexis Sanchez picked up a second yellow. The reigning Serie A champions retreated, hoping for a counterattacking opportunity that never really materialised. They proved themselves to be an excellent side over the first two legs, and can take …

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Caoimhin Kelleher - 7.0 A good first half, with lots of possession against Arsenals press. Solid composure under pressure, and another good outing. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.0 A great moment for the opening goal, and the playmaker is looking imperious on the ball. Gave good solidity at the back, and tracked runners well. Kept sliding into a central areas to create on the ball brilliance. The pass for the second goal was sensational. Andy Robertson - 7.5 Limited on …

Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

Rob Jones - An Exceptional Fullback

The position of fullback has perhaps seen the biggest evolution over the last few decades, especially at Anfield. The current versions are an attacking force of nature, with Andy Robertson’s endeavour and willing a delight to behold. On the opposite flank, Trent Alexander Arnold has become an absolute revelation, and sits firmly as the world's best attacking fullback. The periods before our current pair (and able backups) were often uninspired. To concentrate on the right sided fullback area, it was …
Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Tyler Morton - An Opportunity To Shine

Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman, Michael Owen, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher and Trent Alexander Arnold all graduated through the Liverpool academy. The success of each is part of the clubs illustrious history, and it is always a joy to see homegrown talent succeed as Liverpool players. Within any historical football club, there are times when talent struggles to emerge due to the level of competition. There has been multiple false hopes in my lifetime, but there is still excitement when any …

The Player Ratings: Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Mistakes will come now and again, but the world's best stopper showed a commanding presence in a routine display. Trent Alexander Arnold - 9.5 Sensational. The teams primary playmaker is transcending the fullback position. Any manager in world football (club football anyway) would have this man over any other, and his domination of the right hand side is becoming an on going problem for the opposition. Two great assists. Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 He had the …
Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Assessing Andy Robertson's 2021/22 Form

Andy Robertson's place in Liverpool's starting line-up is under intense scrutiny. Over the past few weeks, maybe even the past couple of months, the calls for Kostas Tsimikas to replace him have grown progressively louder. Before the season began, I'd argue that the only position up for debate in Liverpool's strongest XI was centre-forward, but with Tsimikas displaying his capabilities and Robertson failing to hit the heights, Roberto Firmino isn't the only stalwart looking over his shoulder. This should, of …

Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

Liverpool’s Magnificent Seven

I recently watched the remake of the Magnificent Seven, a modern take of the original classic. The film revolves around impossibly unrealistic scenarios, a suicide squad of unlikely heroes, with a battle to overcome the odds and succeed. The plot of the film is ridiculous, how the movie then plays out absurd, but the idea of magnificent individuals being required to overcome the greatest of obstacles, not so far fetched. Fenway Sports Group have chosen their means of running the …
