Liverpool Rescue Late Draw At Fulham

Liverpool remain level at the top of the Premier League table after a 1-1 draw away to Fulham.

Why Klopp opted for Kelleher over Adrian

Why Klopp opted for Kelleher over Adrian

A few weeks back now, Jamie Carragher analysed what has happened to Liverpool’s defensive line since Virgil van Dijk’s injury on Monday Night Football. There was a belief that without the Dutchman, the Reds would retreat a little. There have been subtle tweaks but these haven’t been anywhere near as drastic as many had expected.  In his feature, Carragher talked about the backline’s preemptive positioning. Without the recovery pace of Van Dijk and Joe Gomez, Liverpool have stopped trying to …
Three Gini Wijnaldum Replacements

Three Gini Wijnaldum Replacements

It’s just as well Liverpool didn’t sell Gini Wijnaldum in the summer. At the time, It was a divisive topic, with it being the last real opportunity for the Reds to cash in the Dutchman before his contract expires. Despite the addition of Thiago, the former Newcastle midfielder stayed at Anfield. But now, as we near December, he’s the only midfielder Jurgen Klopp has been able to rely on with all of the others have suffering various injuries.  Part of …
Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Brighton and Hove Albion 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool were denied all 3 points at the Amex Stadium against Brighton and Hove Albion by a last-minute VAR-ridden penalty. It wasn’t the best of performances by The Reds but Diogo Jota’s excellent opener looking to have been enough to give Liverpool the win. Unfortunately, those incompetent imbeciles at Stockley Park felt the need to meddle and award The Seagulls a late spot-kick. Pascal Gross made no mistake from 12-yards and snatched a point for the home side. Brighton fully …
Tactical Breakdown: Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool

As I have grown up, I have witnessed titanic clashes between footballing behemoths. Games for which the world would stand still for 90 minutes in order to witness the spectacle. In the early noughties, it was Arsenal and Manchester United; then Chelsea and United; Liverpool and Ferguson's side followed briefly, before the rise of Pep Guardiola's Barcelona precipitated a new dimension to El Clasico, now a monumental clash between the world's two finest teams. Matches between Klopp's Borussia Dortmund and …
Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

The points were shared at the Etihad Stadium as Liverpool and Manchester City played out a 1-1 draw in the final match before we head into another international break. It was probably a fair result with both teams failing to create too many clear-cut chances. City will feel the more disappointed of the two sides, though, having missed a penalty late in the first half. In goal, Alisson was very impressive. He was so quick off his line on a …

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

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

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier with a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield. The Reds went a goal down early on but once again showed an incredible mentality to battle on and steal all three points. We weren’t at our best but the result is the most important thing, especially in this horrifically congested, soulless season. In goal, Alisson had very little to do and didn’t have much of a chance for the West …
Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Liverpool Blunt Blades in Comeback Win

Goals from Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota saw Liverpool fight back from 1-0 down to beat Sheffield United 2-1 at Anfield. Far from their best, the Reds -- who were on the receiving end of more farcical VAR decisions -- eked out a win and moved level with Everton at the top of the table. With Alisson returning from injury, the Champions lined up in a 4231 shape with the regular front three plus Jota. The Reds showed their intent …
