Will Liverpool Repeat Relegation Signing Trick With Sander Berge

Will Liverpool Repeat Relegation Signing Trick With Sander Berge

If you analyze Liverpool's transfer business over the last few years, one thing sticks out: they are not shy of signing players from relegated clubs. Georginio Wijnaldum, a key cog in the club's recent successes, arrived from relegated Newcastle United in the summer of 2016. Likewise, Andy Robertson -- arguably the world's finest left-back -- joined Liverpool from the demoted Hull City in the summer window of 2017. To complete the hattrick, Xherdan Shaqiri swapped Championship bound Stoke for Anfield …
Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool moved within two points of fourth with a 2-0 victory away to Sheffield United. Goals from man of the match Curtis Jones and a deflected Roberto Firmino drive gave the Reds a richly deserved win at Bramall Lane. Were it not from the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale in the hosts' goals, the defending champions -- who had eight shots on target -- would have won by a much healthier margin, which would have reflected their dominance. With Alisson given …
An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

An Ode To Andy Robertson: Liverpool's Consistent Scot

For all the talk of the need for Liverpool to reinforce their defence with new signings, their most consistent players ply their trade in the area. Andy Robertson and Fabinho -- previously a defensive midfielder who is learning to play in the heart of defence on the fly -- have been the Reds standout performers so far in an attritional, compressed season. With the long term injuries to both Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, the Champions' preferred centre-half pairing, …
Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

Trent continues to emulate Gerrard after slump in form at 22

The date was November 12th, 2002, and Liverpool needed to win away to FC Basel to get through their Champions League group. Gerard Houllier's men found themselves 3-0 down before the half-hour mark had even arrived, with one player worse than anyone else on the pitch. That man's name? Steven Gerrard. He was wretched in Switzerland, spraying passes out of play and generally performing like someone devoid of all confidence and focus. A dreadful 45 minutes from Gerrard saw him …
Robertson says Reds were punished for not

Robertson says Reds were punished for not "keeping it simple" against West Brom

Liverpool defender Andy Robertson believes his side paid the price for not keeping hold of the ball and seeing out their game with West Brom. Jürgen Klopp's men had dominated possession at Anfield against Sam Allardyce's Baggies without being able to create many clear-cut scoring opportunities. Sadio Mané had finished brilliantly in the first half to give Liverpool a 1-0 lead at the break. However, they could not expand on that lead in the second half as West Brom employed …
Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

The dreaded Wednesday night/Saturday lunchtime turnaround. Crystal Palace away. No victories on the road since September. The top scorer starting on the bench. A lethargic performance was surely in the offing. But no. Liverpool dismantled Crystal Palace in a fashion that was almost laughable. Symbolic redemption for their humiliation at Villa Park, this victory moves them six points clear of the pack (for 24 hours at least). Never has the outlook been more ominous for this season's challengers. Let's reflect …

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds run riot at Selhurst Park

Liverpool delivered a magnificent statement performance at Selhurst Park, as they beat Crystal Palace 7-0, to go six points clear, at least temporarily, at the top of the Premier League. Takumi Minamino opened the scoring in the 3rd minute with his first league goal for the club, on the one-year anniversary of the day the Reds signed him. Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino added two more before the break, as the Reds delivered a lesson in being clinical, against a …

Brighton 1-1 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds denied another ugly win

Liverpool missed an opportunity to go three points clear at the top of the Premier League ahead of Chelsea vs Spurs after Brighton pegged them back with a stoppage-time penalty. It was another dispiriting afternoon for the Reds, with two disallowed goals and an injury to James Milner adding to their misery. Here are the headline figures. The unwanted top spot Liverpool may have moved only one point clear at the top of the Premier League, but they are running …
Liverpool hopeful that duo will be fit to face Leicester City on Sunday

Liverpool hopeful that duo will be fit to face Leicester City on Sunday

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp is holding out hope that both Jordan Henderson and Andy Robertson may be fit to face Leicester City on Sunday. On Monday evening, it was confirmed that club captain Henderson was released from international duty with England. Henderson had come off at half time in the Three Lions' 2-0 defeat against Belgium after "feeling a bit of tightness" according to Gareth Southgate. Henderson is now back on Merseyside where he will undergo further assessment with the …
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Liverpool ended their run of three games without a win by doggedly beating Ajax. Nicolas Tagliafico's clumsy own-goal was ultimately the difference, though Davy Klaassen hit the post and Liverpool spurned opportunities of their own in the closing stages. Here's how the Reds rated in Amsterdam... Adrian - 7 It was far from a confident start - the mix-up with Gomez and the flashbacks to the howler at Southampton - and the finish was nervy as well, a flapped punch …
