"He's hungry" - Liverpool star ready to shine again according to Alisson

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah started the new season in scintillating form in The Reds' 4-3 win over Leeds United on Saturday. Alisson Becker believes the Egyptian forward is hungry for more success this season. Salah scored a hat-trick, including two well-taken penalties, to help Jürgen Klopp's men see off the newly-promoted visitors and take all three points. Liverpool didn't play great overall but Salah was one of the hugely positive points that Reds fans could take from the game. Speaking to …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool banked yet another 3 points at Anfield after a very lacklustre 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. Until Mané put the Reds in front in the 70th minute, we failed to create any chance of note whatsoever, with Villa looking the more likely to break the deadlock with numerous dangerous counterattacks. A win is a win, though, which keeps our remarkable run of victories at home continuing along nicely. In goal, Alisson unsurprisingly started and played very well. A couple …

Why Alisson is still the best goalkeeper in the world

Why Alisson is still the best goalkeeper in the world

Twitter can be a strange place. Manuel Veth, freelance football writers for a number of outlets, is of the belief that Manuel Neuer has been better than Alisson Becker this season. When asked to explain his thought process behind this shout, he refused and told me to write an article on why he’s wrong. So here it is. Liverpool’s No.1 has been unlucky with injuries this season. The 27-year-old has started just 20 times in the Premier League and five …

Why Liverpool's best players are taken for granted

Why Liverpool's best players are taken for granted

Who is Liverpool’s best player? Who is Liverpool’s player of the season? Who is Liverpool’s most under-appreciated player? These are all questions that are probably impossible to answer in truth, to varying degrees. Everyone has their own opinions of course, as people are wont to do, but that doesn’t mean there’s a definitive or even consensus answer. I bring up these questions not to try to answer them, but because I want to highlight how some players can get more …

Speaking after the 1-0 win over Spurs, the former Reds centre-back heaped praise on Jurgen Klopp and the recruitment team at Anfield.  "It's not that Liverpool are just buying players with this special ability that nobody else sees these players," Carragher told Sky Sports. "[Andy] Robertson came from Hull City, [Gini] Wijnaldum was relegated with Newcastle United, Mohamed Salah had been at Chelsea, Sadio Mane had been in the Premier …
