Liverpool Begin Campaign with 4-1 Norwich Victory

Liverpool Begin Campaign with 4-1 Norwich Victory

Liverpool got their 2019/2020 Premier League campaign off to the ideal start with a 4-1 victory over Norwich City at Anfield on Friday. Goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and Divock Origi, as well as a Grant Hanley own goal sufficed for the efficient, if not always electric hosts. As happy as the Reds will surely be with their season opening three points, they will wait nervously on the medical news surrounding Alisson. The keeper was replaced by Adrian …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Beat Norwich 4-1

Liverpool kicked off the 2019/20 Premier League season with a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich. A bit of the old Liverpool came out with some very dodgy moments defensively, but, fortunately, the attack was at its scintillating best and was extremely clinical in the first half. There’s some work to be done for Jurgen Klopp’s men as you would expect a better side to punish us more with the chances afforded to the Canaries. However, the biggest cause for concern …
Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

A Gabriel Jesus penalty condemned Liverpool to a 5-4 penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City at Wembley. Goals from Raheem Sterling and Joel Matip saw normal time finish 1-1 in an entertaining game, but one in which Liverpool could justifiably think that Lady Luck evaded them. In the second half, in particular, Liverpool -- with Mohamed Salah to the fore --  peppered Manchester City's goal with shots, but a combination of the goal frame, Kyle Walker acrobatics and Claudio Bravo …
Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-0 Barcelona: Who was man of the match?

There are truly no words so soon after the greatest European night in Anfield's history, but I'll try to find some. This was a depleted Liverpool side - no Mohamed Salah, no Roberto Firmino and, after halftime, no Andrew Robertson - but each and every man in red wrote themselves into footballing folklore. Never has there been such an embarrassment of riches in the MOTM discussion. Alisson Becker kept us in the competition with his remarkable sprawling save against Napoli …

Key Stats as Liverpool Rout Porto in Portugal Again

Liverpool took Porto apart in the second half to ensure safe passage to the Champions League semi-final where Barcelona await, despite a nervy first 25 minutes in Portugal. But what were the key stats from a thumping 4-1 away win, securing a 6-1 aggregate victory? The Hendo Show Continues Jordan Henderson made a huge impact off the bench again in this game, securing his 3rd assist in four games, having only contributed one in almost two years, since the start …

Match Report: Liverpool stroll while City stumble

Match Report: Porto 0 Liverpool 2 Champions League quarterfinals aren’t supposed to feel this casual. Nothing Liverpool related is supposed to feel this casual. And, so it was that what you might have thought would be a sunny trip to northern Portugal would end up being a deluge. Jurgen Klopp sent out a strong side while resting three. Jordan Henderson picked up a knock late in the action against Chelsea, Bobby Firmino deserves a rest more than anyone and Naby …
Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Jurgen Klopp is bringing out a secret weapon at the business end of the season that every opposing manager sorta knew that he had, but he wasn’t using it, so maybe there was a problem with it… who knows. Point is, Southampton and Porto walk in the door and Klopp says, “say hello to my little friend!” The little friend being one, Naby Keita, who is literally quite small, but he is capable of mowing down the opposition like Tony …
Could be out of sight, but still in command - Observations from Reds' 2-0 win over Porto

Could be out of sight, but still in command - Observations from Reds' 2-0 win over Porto

That could've been a lot better. But Liverpool are still in command of the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal tie against Porto, after a 2-0 win at Anfield in the first leg. The Reds were superb in the opening exchanges, with Naby Keita opening the scoring via a lucky deflection off Otavio. Roberto Firmino capped off a superb team move in the 26th minute to put Liverpool in command. But, the scoring stopped there, despite plenty of opportunities for either side …
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 …

Match Report: Liverpool's Little Dancer Does It!

Hold me closer little dancer, Count the headlights on the highway, Lay me down in sheets of linen, You've had a busy day today. How much did Liverpool need Mo Salah to score that goal? How much did Naby Keita need to come through like that? How much did Jordan Henderson need to grab the reins of this team and be a big part of a clutch victory? Strange to say about a Liverpool side that is two wins away …
