Liverpool No Excuses Reaction Bodes Well For Future

Rooting through the charred remains of Liverpool's 7-2 defeat to Aston Villa in search of positives is an entirely difficult pursuit. To concede seven goals -- and, on balance, it could have been even more -- away to a team who just about managed to survive in the Premier League last season was arguably the Reds' worst result in Premier League history. Yes, worse than the 6-1 defeat away to Stoke City in 2015. But in the reaction to the …
Liverpool Torn Apart From Villa

Liverpool Torn Apart From Villa

Liverpool suffered their first loss of their Premier League title defence as they were torn apart by Aston Villa in a 7-2 defeat at Villa. Two goals from Mohamed Salah were the Reds' only riposte to an avalanche of goals -- including a hattrick from Ollie Watkins -- from the home side who ruthlessly exploited the visitors poorly orchestrated high-line time and time again. Jurgen Klopp confirmed before the game that Alisson Becker's shoulder injury would keep him out for …
Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool: What went wrong?

There was no better encapsulation of my feelings towards last night's performance than the Anfield Wrap's half-time Instagram post - 'Fuck off Liverpool'. At that point, there were still three more Villa goals to come, delivering the kind of result that might leave you queasy and anxious for much of the inexplicably-timed international break. Even in the apocalyptic context of 2020, this does not mark the end of the world. It is three dropped points, albeit in a fashion so humiliating …

"We couldn't believe it" - Robertson left shell-shocked after Reds' Villa Park debacle

Liverpool fell to one of their heaviest ever defeats at Villa Park on Sunday night in a game that bemused Reds fans and players alike. Aston Villa turned in a fantastic performance, winning 7-2 and, all things considered, it could have been a lot worse for Liverpool. When interviewed after the game, Scotland captain Andy Robertson had no excuses for what he admitted was an "embarrassing" result for The Reds.
"At times we couldn't believe it, to be honest. We …
Player ratings as Liverpool succumb to Villa Park embarrassment

Player ratings as Liverpool succumb to Villa Park embarrassment

Where to start with that one? Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool. That's *SEVEN* goals for the team that escaped relegation last season due to a goal line technology error, against the Champions of England. Not sure if this puts my #ProperRed status at risk, but I laughed through that. A lot. Listen, losing big games is horrible. Losing games you deserve to win, games against rivals, close games. All rubbish stuff. Getting spanked by Aston Villa, courtesy of a hat-trick of …

It turned out to …
Liverpool Relegated Team Transfer Roulette

Liverpool Relegated Team Transfer Roulette

Liverpool have already felt the brunt of the financial pinch caused by the ongoing pandemic. Long linked with Timo Werner, the Reds — who were either unwilling or unable to match the financial package on offer in West London — were beaten to the signing of the German international by Chelsea. The prevailing sense, as suggested by all of the journalists close to the club, is that reigning European, World, and English champions will be relatively quiet in the upcoming …
Klopp praises Naby Keïta as

Klopp praises Naby Keïta as "super solution" after Reds win against Villa

Liverpool midfielder Naby Keïta was labelled a "top, top player" today by Reds boss Jürgen Klopp after the Guinea international helped break the deadlock against a stubborn Aston Villa defence. Keïta played 85 minutes of the 2-0 win over relegation-threatened Villa at Anfield, laying on the assist for Sadio Mané's opening goal. When asked at his post-match press conference about what he thought of Keïta's performance, Klopp said:
"Naby is a top player, a top player. It was a difficult …
Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Liverpool returned to winning ways as they saw off Aston Villa 2-0 in a scrappy game at Anfield to make it a staggering 24 straight home league wins in a row. But what were the key stats from another dross game in Liverpool’s title procession? Naby. Lad. Liverpool’s attacking display was efficient rather than explosive. Only six shots, only three inside the box and only two big chances, but both big chances were converted to give the Reds the win. …

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool's hopes of ending the season with a 100% Premier League record at Anfield are still alive after they sparked themselves into life against Aston Villa. It was a lethargic, disjointed display for over an hour, but the slickest move of the match brought a breakthrough for Sadio Mane before Curtis Jones' first league goal confirmed defeat for Villa. Here's how the Reds rated: Alisson - 8 As ever, Alisson made a number of hazardous efforts that came his way …
