Player Ratings: Liverpool Brush Aside Bournemouth

Player Ratings: Liverpool Brush Aside Bournemouth

If you are one of the many Reds worried about the midweek match against Red Bull Salzburg you couldn’t have hoped for a better result than this. Liverpool have seen tougher opposition on the training pitch than this Bournemouth side who were flattered by the 0-3 scoreline. Firmino, Salah and Henderson returned to an eleven masterfully rotated by Jurgen Klopp to deal with December’s congested calendar. Remember Clean Sheets? Alisson (7): Good to have the Brazilian back in net and racking …
Brilliant Liverpool Batter Bournemouth

Brilliant Liverpool Batter Bournemouth

Liverpool maintained their eleven point at the top of the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over Bournemouth at The Vitality Stadium. Goals from Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Naby Keita and Mohamed Salah sufficed for the much changed European Champions who kept their first clean sheet in what feels like an age. Jurgen Klopp made seven changes from the team that won the Merseyside derby midweek, with Salah, Oxlade Chamberlain, Keita, Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Alisson and Roberto Firmino all returning …
Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

I’ll be honest with you all – I turned my Chinese stream off a couple of minutes before Robertson’s equaliser. I didn’t think it was worth the constant flicking between grainy, lag-ridden pictures just to see us lose. How wrong I was. This team just never gives up and despite Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson’s best efforts, the Reds find a way to dig out yet another win. It wasn’t the best of performances, but let’s have a look at …

Player Ratings as the Mentality Monsters do it again

Fuckin' hell, what a team. Another one pulled out of our arses, at the death, as it looked like everything was going against us. As far as I'm concerned, Martin Atkinson is the worst referee in the world and Klopp needs to start getting into the media's ear, Fergie style, regarding him. Firmino should have a goal, we should probably have a penalty, it didn't need to be that hard. Fair play to Kloppo, ballsy as anything to take Salah …
Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Napoli 2-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

This is the second year in succession that I'm sitting down to ponder how Liverpool were beaten at the Stadio San Paolo, but the circumstances feel different. Last season, it was more or less a case of a wretched team performance, but on the whole the Reds turned in a decent display at this time, even if their attacking bluntness returned. They only had themselves to blame in 2018, yet this time around they can legitimately feel hard done by …

Player ratings as Reds fall again in Naples

VAR. Going great, isn’t it? I honestly didn’t think we’d do particularly well tonight but I thought we’d at least have the VAR on our side after Saturday’s debacle.  Never mind. Chelsea on Saturday etc, we move on. Just one more thing before the ratings - Peter Walton is a big weirdo.  Adriannnnn, like Rocky! Adrian (8): That’s an amazing save, you know the one I mean. Genuinely, Roy of the Rovers stuff. Does his best with the penalty.  TAA …

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds scrap to St. Mary's win

Given the circumstances, Liverpool came away from a potential banana-skin at St. Mary's with a superb three points, after beating Southampton 2-1, thanks to goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino. The Reds were dominated for large periods of the first half, but went into the break with Mané's stunning curler putting them in front. Firmino doubled the lead, before an Adrian howler sent the nerves jangling a little bit. But in the end, two and a half days after …
Observations as Liverpool dig out yet another win to stay alive

Observations as Liverpool dig out yet another win to stay alive

It was nervy. The tension was rattling. It was not a nice feeling. With time dwindling, Liverpool had little margin for error. Liverpool didn't err. The tension was broken through. The nerves were all settled. From the South Coast, the Reds will head back to Merseyside with three points. Here are the key observations from the game. Horrific Start Well, it would have been nice to see Liverpool have more control of midfield, right from the get-go, but Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg …

Key Stats As Liverpool Triumphant Against Bayern Munich

Liverpool turned in an exceptional and comprehensive away performance at the Allianz Arena to win 3-1 and dump Bayern Munich out of the Champions League. But what were the key stats from an incredible European night that saw Liverpool cruise into the quarter-finals? Bayern Shut Out Liverpool’s attack has been much vaunted in European competition, but it was their much-improved defence that saw them qualify from this tie over the two legs. Bayern were restricted to just 0.4 xG in …
