Liverpool  4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 - 0 Southampton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 Some important stops allowed Liverpool to avoid any issues. The most important goalkeeper in Liverpool’s Premier League era, and irreplaceable in this side. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 So impressive in his game. The elegance and natural ability he has is unmatched by any other attacking fullback. Another assist for this sensational talent, and we could be about to see him become consistently world class Andy Robertson - 9.0 There were signs against Porto (as a …
Klopp’s Campaign Management

Klopp’s Campaign Management

Stubbornness, single mindedness, arrogance and an absolute inability to adjust one's methods, can be the downfall of even the best managers in modern football. In recent years we have seen the likes of Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, unable to adapt to the modern needs of Premier League football, with both departing the division at relative low points. The signs are often evident, the fall off from brilliance usually gradual, but the reason for the decline always consistent. Football changes, …
Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

When Liverpool win their opening Champions League group game 3-2 at Anfield, it tends to be good omen. This was a game that got the juices flowing in a similar vein to that victory over Paris Saint-Germain three years ago, except this time the scoreline gave it the illusion of a contest. Thanks to a Jordan Henderson winner that will universally be called Steven Gerrard-esque, Liverpool can bask in what was, on the whole, a supremely dominant display. Here's how …
Robertson Says He Was “Emotionally Drained” by the End of Last Season

Robertson Says He Was “Emotionally Drained” by the End of Last Season

Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson admits that he was glad of the short break after a gruelling campaign for both club and country. Robertson started all 38 of The Reds' Premier League fixtures last season as well as 8 of their 10 Champions League games. He came on as a sub in the other two CL matches. The Scotland captain has actually started at least 34 of Liverpool's league games for each of the last three seasons. In June, he then …
Liverpool Left-Back Ready to Push For Starting Berth

Liverpool Left-Back Ready to Push For Starting Berth

Liverpool's Kostas Tsimikas insists he is ready to push for a more significant role this season as he looks to push on at Anfield. Tsimikas made just two late substitute appearances in last season's Premier League while starting only two matches in the Champions League as well. Still only 25, Tsimikas hopes to make more of a contribution this season as our backup left-back. He also acknowledges the fact that he has one of the current best left-backs in world …
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 …
