Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

For the last few years, Manchester City would be the early season team compared to Liverpool in the Premier League title race. This early season looks like a one horse race (Arsenal will inevitably fall away), and the Reds currently languish within mid table mediocrity, though thankfully not as lowly as their blue neighbours, just yet anyway. Manchester City are the club with huge domestic success during Klopp’s Anfield stay, but this could now be the moment where City have …

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Arsenal vs Liverpool

There's not point in even pretending that performance was acceptable. Even with a couple of days to process and rewatch the game, it doesn't become easier to digest The Good Darwin Nunez Jurgen Klopp placed a lot of faith in Darwin Nunez when he decided to spend what could become a club record fee to sign the Uruguayan striker from Benfica this summer.

Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Before the match, hosts Arsenal were in a run of form they've not seen for years, putting themselves in pole position to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Joel Matip Virgil, Fabinho and Alisson all could have won this, which showed the utter strength through the defensive middle. In a game where Martinelli was so dangerous, Matip was able to offer great coverage when they broke.

When moments arose, he was able to stay resolute and helps make this team so hard to …

Observations: The Reds, like a boulder rolling down a hill.

Against Arsenal, Liverpool had one of their slowest first halves of the season. It seemed like the Gunners had a real foothold in the game, and although they didn't create much, neither did Liverpool. But we will not be stopped.

Even the sight …

Liverpool 0-0 Arsenal: Player Ratings as Reds fail to punish Xhaka and Arsenal

Takumi Minamino missed a glorious late chance as Liverpool limped to a goalless draw with Arsenal in the first leg of their League Cup semifinal. It was by far the best of the few opportunities The Reds fashioned following Granit Xhaka's two-reds-for-the-price-of-one dismissal 24 minutes into the game. Liverpool of course missed the threat, and above all the movement, of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, but this shouldn't be considered an inevitable mid-AFCON slump. Like the game against Chelsea in …
