Late Goal Lifts Liverpool at Selhurst Park

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. In a performance of professionalism rather than poetry, Firmin0 -- after Mané had given the lead and Christian Benteke equalised -- gave the table toppers yet another late win with a goal scored with just 8 minutes remaining. With Mohamed Salah on the bench and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain starting in …

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. Sadio Mane opened the scoring for the Reds, only to be pegged back late by Wilfried Zaha. 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. Alisson Becker - 6/10 No real big saves to make, …
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. Chelsea huffed and puffed in search of an equaliser, but all their attempts were denied by stubborn Reds defending the lead in particular by Joel Matip and Andrew Robertson to seal to their …
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

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 …
Player Ratings as Liverpool Sweep Burnley Aside

Player Ratings as Liverpool Sweep Burnley Aside

An exceedingly comfortable 3-0 victory against the most abhorrent club in the Premier League. They tried their usual dirty, boring tactics but were made to look like a bunch of part-timers by the Europeans Champions. A thoroughly satisfying win as we head into the international break. Adrian: 6 Had very little to do. Easy game for the Spaniard.  Trent: 7 Created the Wood own-goal and dealt with what little attacking intent Burnley showed down his side throughout the game.  Matip: …
Liverpool Return To Summit With Resounding Win

Liverpool Return To Summit With Resounding Win

Liverpool broke a club record league winning streak with their 13th successive league victory in their 3-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.  A Chris Wood own goal, as well as strikes from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino was enough to send the Reds back to the top of the table.  Manager Jurgen Klopp kept faith in the team that beat Arsenal and his players rewarded him with a performance of dominance and efficiency in a game that was flagged …
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Who was Man of the Match?

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

A pretty comfortable 3-1 victory over Arsenal. A result we’ve come to expect over the last few years at Anfield against the Gunners. There were some impressive performances all over the pitch for the Reds as we go top of the table with the only 100% record in the Premier League. Starting at the back, Trent Alexander-Arnold looked pretty good both defensively and offensively. His crosses weren’t quite at the incredible standard we know he’s capable of, but he provided …
Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: Who was Man of the Match?

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: Who was Man of the Match?

It was a game that every Liverpool fan knew was going to be a struggle. Not only was it an away match against a solid Southampton side, but with the 120 minutes played in midweek added to that, 3 points was looking a difficult ask. The front three were going to have to work their magic and dig us out of a hole, and, thankfully, they did just that - despite Adrian’s best efforts to throw it all away late …
