Player Ratings As Much Changed Liverpool Fight Back In Style

Jurgen Klopp made an array of changes for Liverpool's midweek trip to Burnley, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all out of the starting eleven while Divock Origi was rewarded for his last-gasp winner against Everton at the weekend. Cork's opening goal for the home side put the Reds on the back foot, from which it looked incredibly hard to fight back and earn three points to keep up pressure on Manchester City. However, a mixture of sheer …

Liverpool’s Next Five Away Fixtures Could Define Their Season

Liverpool’s Next Five Away Fixtures Could Define Their Season

With the international break thankfully almost at an end, attention starts turning back to the Premier League, and for Liverpool, that means a tricky away trip to Watford in their first game back. Jürgen Klopp has never hidden his disdain for international football, in particular, the Nations League, and so will be glad to have his squad back ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. The fixture in the capital is the start of what is a challenging run of …
Danny Ings - The Harsh Reality of Football

Danny Ings - The Harsh Reality of Football

Football can be a cruel sport. It’s worth remembering that when Danny Ings signed for Liverpool, he was just 22 years old, although he would turn 23 before the season began. He was fresh off two strong seasons with Burnley and full of promise. That promise looked as though it might begin to blossom under Brendan Rodgers, as a troubled start to Liverpool’s season saw Ings work his way into a starting position and score a couple of goals – …
Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

Lascelles or Tarkowski: Who's the Better Fit?

The wheels of Liverpool’s busy summer have already begun spinning. Even as they head to a Champions League final, rumours have been rife regarding those who will arrive in the summer: The Independent’s Miguel Delaney reported that Michael Edwards has been tasked with finding a centre-half partner for Liverpool’s perceived most important signing in recent memory, Virgil van Dijk. The first two names out of the block share a nationality, and were both unfortunate to not make Gareth Southgate’s twenty-three-man …
Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

Being a Liverpool Supporter - The Anxiety is Real

It's been 6 years since Liverpool last won a trophy, the League Cup under Kenny Dalglish in the 2011-12 season. And the previous trophy to that was the FA Cup in 2006. And it feels like approximately 408 years since we last won the league. So it's fair to say that Liverpool fans have been through some tough seasons in recent times. Unfortunately, this has led to some serious negativity amongst the fanbase. There is no doubt that success breeds …
Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

Liverpool v Manchester City Preview - Key Battles

After what seems like forever, Liverpool have had a whole week between two games, and the break couldn't have come at a better time than in the lead-up to a game against Manchester City, who have made a mockery of the Premier League this season. City have only dropped points twice this season but come into this game having not won at Anfield since 2003. For Jurgen Klopp's Reds, it has been an eventful week with a dream Virgil van …
How Ragnar Klavan has become Liverpool’s new cult hero

How Ragnar Klavan has become Liverpool’s new cult hero

Who else thinks Ragnar Klavan’s last-minute winner at Burnley has made it into their favourite 10 Reds goals of all time? That may be both short-termist and an overreaction, but there was something special about it. It was a goal that leaves you on top of the world for hours afterwards, feeling invincible. I could have knocked out Mike Tyson between approximately 4:50pm and 10pm, or cruised to victory over Mo Farah in the 10,000 metres. There were probably a …

Bench: Karius, Matip, Robertson, Milner, Woodburn, Ings, Firmino. What a difference two years make. Recording their first win of 2018, Liverpool secured an injury-time winner in the most dramatic fashion to win 2-1. Bear …
A Different Kind Of Win At

A Different Kind Of Win At "Tough" Moor - Burnley 1 Liverpool 2

You can keep your 7-0s. That was my type of game. Don’t get me wrong, I love a pasting, particularly if it looks on the cards from the outset. I was at the famous 9-0 game against Crystal Palace in 1989 and though it was ‘only’ 3-0 at halftime there was a sense that this side were there for a merciless beating. The whole ground knew that Palace would want to get off the pitch as soon as possible such …
