“Last year we hit the post in the Premier League, we were upset of course that we didn’t win. “We have a chance this season, it’s in our hands. We need to keep it up, working hard, following …

Player Ratings as Liverpool are crowned Champions of the World

Well it wasn’t easy, but Liverpool are Champions of the World for the first time in their history. It was far from a stellar performance, but once again the Reds did enough to get the victory.  Now, let’s see how each player performed individually. Alisson - 6 A few poor passes and didn’t look as assured on the ball as usual. However, he made a couple of important saves. Alexander-Arnold - 6 Got caught out a couple of times defensively …
Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Liverpool kept their Premier League undefeated run intact with a 2-0 win over Watford at Anfield in Saturday's early game. A brace of goals from Mohamed Salah was enough to seal the win for the Reds in a limp, tired looking performance against the Premier League's bottom team. Jurgen Klopp elected to change formation to a 4231, and make three changes from the Champions League victory away in Salzburg. Naby Keita dropping out for Xherdan Shaqiri and Andrew Robertson being …
Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Liverpool will have most likely have to win their matchday 6 trip to Salzburg in order to top their Champions League after being frustrated 1-1 by Napoli at Anfield tonight. A Dejan Lovren header from a corner equalised an early Dries Mertens strike, but Liverpool produced an atypically meek European home performance and missed a chance to win their group with a match to spare. Jurgen Klopp elected to make three changes from the victory over Crystal Palace, with Alex …

Late Goal Lifts Liverpool at Selhurst Park

Goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino saw Liverpool maintain their 8 point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-1 win away to Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds eke out yet another late win

Liverpool kept their lead at the top of the Premier League intact, with a 2-1 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

But the response from Jurgen Klopp's men was immediate with a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner causing pandemonium in the Palace box, for Roberto Firmino to tap in. Here's how each player fared.

Efficient Liverpool Sack Stamford Bridge

Efficient Liverpool Sack Stamford Bridge

Liverpool cemented their position at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-1 win away to Chelsea. Goals from Trent Alexander Arnold and Roberto Firmino saw the European champions lead 2-0 at half time, but the hosts responded with a brilliant Ngolo Kante solo goal.

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
Observations as Liverpool brush past Newcastle

Observations as Liverpool brush past Newcastle

Liverpool maintained their perfect start to the season, making it 5 wins out of 5 as Liverpool got past a determined and compact Newcastle. Mané continued his great home scoring record and Salah's goal capped off a perfect afternoon. Subtle shifts in the team as games start to pile up Klopp before the international break had indicated that rotation will happen as Liverpool's fixtures start to pile up. Firmino and Henderson sat out of the starting line up with both …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Top the Toon

A lovely, routine(ish) win for the Reds to start your weekend off. Slightly annoying that everyone's favourite FIFA 12 left-back decided to blam one in with his weak foot before we'd played 10 minutes, but at least it gave Steve Bruce something other than his evening Mixed Grill to be happy about. After that, Sadio does what he's done all year, Salah bags one too and Jurgen Klopp goes home a content man. Here's your ratings. Adrian keeps his cool …
