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

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

I’m getting mighty tired of these nail-biters. One regular day of Barclays, that’s all I ask for. Right now, it doesn’t look as if it will happen. Despite that, with Leicester still to play, the Reds are a massive 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League with 14 games played. Despite the best efforts of Alisson and Martin Atkinson, we held on to clinch another 3 points. It was a real moment of madness from our Brazilian …

It was, though, another massive win in the Premier League for the Reds, as Brighton were seen off at Anfield, thanks to Virgil van Dijk's first-half brace. Alisson Becker's red card and Lewis Dunk's goal made it a nervy final few minutes. Here's how each player fared Alisson Becker - 4/10 He made a couple of decent saves but …

Why Mo Salah Will Take Centre-Stage For Liverpool

Sadio Mané and Mo Salah have both been making headlines this season for Liverpool. And rightly so. Mané has scored nine goals with one assist in all competitions, whilst Mo has seven goals and four assists. Both players have also this week been nominated for the Ballon D’Or along with four other Liverpool players (Alisson Becker, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Gini Wijnaldum and Roberto Firmino). But there’s also been talk of a bit of friction between the two, although that’s mostly just …

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 …
Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

Lallana Levels Late for Liverpool

A late goal from substitute Adam Lallana salvaged a point for Liverpool in their 1-1 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford this evening. The home team had lead through a Marcus Rashford goal mired in controversy but Lallana, who replaced Jordan Henderson, had the simple task of converting Andrew Robertson's cross into an empty net in the 85th minute. The beginning of the game was typical of a first match after an international break; slack passes were compounded by …
100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …
