Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester City: Who Was Man of the Match?

What a win that is. Absolutely delightful to get another one over the cardigan-clad crybaby and put us a monstrous 9 points clear of City and 8 points clear at the top of the table. We were extraordinarily clinical when the chances and half-chances fell our way, while the Sky Blues couldn’t do enough to break us down more than once. All the talk will be about VAR as usual but pay no heed to that rubbish – every major …
Robertson's late heroics showcase his mental fortitude

Robertson's late heroics showcase his mental fortitude

Approximately 6:15pm on Sunday, September 22nd: Liverpool supporters are going through hell. Leading 2-1 at Stamford Bridge despite a shoddy, tired-looking second-half performance, they are on the rack away to Chelsea. Mason Mount has already missed a glorious opportunity to ensure the Blues become the first team to take points off the Reds this season and they are making one last push for an equaliser. Then Andy Robertson emerges as the left-back colossus we have grown to idolise, producing a …
Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
Why Firmino Makes it all Work

Why Firmino Makes it all Work

As the dust settled on a convincing victory at one of Liverpool’s most precarious hunting grounds, and a spat between Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané proliferated the post-match headlines, it was one cheeky smile and movement of the eyes that set everybody at ease. Indeed, it was also the arm of Roberto Firmino around Sadio Mané, as the latter continued his remonstrations with his manager regarding his partner in crime’s noticeable hunger for a goal, that showed Liverpool fans what …
The Case For Clyne

The Case For Clyne

Truth be told, Nathaniel Clyne is not an ideal fit for the Jurgen Klopp Liverpool of 2019. That's not to say the former Crystal Palace and Southampton full-back is a bad player; objectively, he is -- as Premier League full-backs go -- good. But with Liverpool's ultra attacking and productive full-back pairing of Trent  Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson setting the bar ridiculously high, Clyne will find his game time -- provided he stays -- limited unless injuries occur. There …
Liverpool's Adam Lewis willing to step up to provide cover for Andy Robertson

Liverpool's Adam Lewis willing to step up to provide cover for Andy Robertson

Liverpool academy prospect Adam Lewis says he is looking to impress Jurgen Klopp and his backroom team during the pre-season period. With Alberto Moreno having completed his move to Villarreal after his Liverpool contract was not renewed, Lewis hopes to become the second-choice left-back at the club behind Andy Robertson next season. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Lewis said:
“We know what the manager likes, he loves the running, so you’ve just got to adapt to it and I see an opportunity …
Stephen Warnock hails Andy Robertson's performance levels

Stephen Warnock hails Andy Robertson's performance levels

Former Liverpool left-back Stephen Warnock has been lauding the growth of Andy Robertson since his arrival at Anfield. The former Hull City player joined The Reds for a reported fee of around £8 million which is almost considered 'small change' in today's market. Robertson has since gone on to establish himself as a regular in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool defence as well as earning the captaincy for his country, Scotland. Warnock, a one-time red in his early career, spoke to Liverpoolfc.com …
Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Has Oxlade-Chamberlain Become Over-hyped?

Jurgen Klopp has assembled arguably the most likeable Liverpool squad in memory. Whereas in the past, supporters would have a small selection of genuine heroes to choose from, they are now spoiled for choice. Everywhere you look, there are superb, Champions League-winning footballers who are also warm, down-to-earth characters, from Alisson in goal right the way through to Sadio Mane in attack. One player who manages to even stand out from this crowd is Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: a loveable person and …
Is Liverpool's Laptop Legend Budget Bound?

Is Liverpool's Laptop Legend Budget Bound?

Imagine if you will, Michael Edwards, still clearing the cobwebs from the meanest of post-parade hangovers, popping open his laptop, seeing endless messages from supporters complaining about Liverpool’s lack of signings and specifically the need for a reserve left-back. Edwards swings open his office door, sloshing a bit of coffee on the floor in the process as he slurs in an uncharacteristically gravelly voice, “who’s the best left-back we can get?” “Junior Firpo, sir,” a fresh-faced scout replies, leaning out …
Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

Moments For The Underdogs: Joel Matip and Divock Origi

 ‘I like being the underdog so they don’t expect what’s going to happen…’
The biggest moments aren’t always meant for the biggest players, the best players, the ones who you’d expect to take up the mantle when everything is on the line. Those glittering, do or die moments can spark the emergence of those who have faded into the background, the underdogs in a group of top dogs who make their mark where no one thought it possible. …
