Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Liverpool made hard work of things after a lightning start at the Amex Stadium, as they beat Brighton 3-1 thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah. It was the Egyptian who gave Liverpool the lead, before the skipper Jordan Henderson doubled it a couple of minutes later. Brighton grew into the game for the rest of the first half, and deservedly pulled a goal back through Leandro Trossard, but Salah's header off an Andy Robertson corner sealed the points for …
Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool became the quickest team in Premier League history to win 30 games in a season with a 3-1 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium. A brace from Golden Boot chasing Mohamed Salah as well as a Jordan Henderson screamer was enough to seal the win for the Reds -- who handed Neco Williams a debut at left back -- despite a far from vintage performance against a brave Brighton outfit. Liverpool roared into an early lead, with a …
Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

By the looks of things, Liverpool are set to undergo another quiet summer in the transfer market. The Reds' decision not to pursue a move for Timo Werner appears to be a sign of things to come, even though there is no ruling out the prospect of the odd addition coming in. One player who has been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool is David Alaba, who has been a stylish stalwart for Bayern Munich over the past decade, …
Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Jurgen Klopp's Tactical Conundrum

Liverpool players are often accused of being too reliant on the system they’re being deployed in. It’s used as a criticism and as a way to downplay the achievements of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.  “In other teams, they’d be nowhere near as effective.”   And while this might be true, it’s actually adding weight to the managerial ability of Jurgen Klopp. The former BVB boss is often written off as a passion merchant and what he does tactically …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool's No D*ckhead Policy Paying Dividends

Liverpool took their first tentative steps towards restarting their campaign when small groups of players took part in non-contact training at Melwood yesterday, Wednesday. What was noticeable among the players was that the usually impeccably coiffured hair of some of the squad's members -- the Brazilian duo of Alisson and Firmino, particularly -- had grown untamed without access to barbers during lockdown. Now, trying to garner any information about a person's personality based off how they keep their hair is …
What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

What Makes The Reds So Great - Part 1

Before the worldwide coronavirus pandemic ground the Premier League season to what we are assured is a temporary halt, Liverpool looked set to win the league title at a canter. Winning 27 out of their 29 games, the Reds -- who have beaten every other team in the league on their remarkable run -- find themselves a full 25 points ahead of second-place Manchester City and, mathematically, only need two more wins to claim the clubs’ 19th league success and …
Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Sabitzer The Latest Bull to be Liverpool Red

Over the last year or so, Liverpool have had an exceptional record in tying down their key players to new deals. Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane -- among others -- have all penned new contracts to see them remain at Anfield for the foreseeable future. Absent from that list of renewals, however -- despite being just as key a cog to the Reds' winning machine as the aforementioned striking trio -- has been Dutch midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum. Since …
Two players to return to squad for Atlético Madrid clash on Wednesday night

Two players to return to squad for Atlético Madrid clash on Wednesday night

Liverpool should have Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson both back in contention for a starting place against Atlético Madrid on Wednesday night, according to Jürgen Klopp. The Reds were without both Henderson and Robertson for Saturday's 2-1 Premier League win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Robertson was not risked after picking up a slight injury in training while Henderson was still recovering from the thigh problem he suffered in mid-February. Liverpool are 1-0 down from the first leg in Spain so …
Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017. Then in the summer of 2018, Xherdan Shaqiri …
