Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …

Liverpool 4-1 Norwich City - Observations as Alisson Injury Taints Opening Day Reds Romp

Liverpool kicked off the new Premier League season with a comfortable 4-1 romp over Norwich City at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp's men were put under pressure by a spirited Norwich side, but were also helped by a more-than-leaky Canaries defence, who shipped four goals even before half-time. Grant Hanley diverted a Divock Origi cross into his own net, Mo Salah scored one and then put a corner on Virgil van Dijk's head, before Origi easily headed a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross into …

Andy Lonergan joins Reds in USA as emergency backup goalkeeper

Former Preston North End and Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Andy Lonergan will join Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool squad on their trip of the USA.

First-choice goalkeeper Alisson Becker is still enjoying his summer break after winning the Copa America with Brazil. Simon Mignolet is the highest-ranking stopper who is available to Klopp for the pre-season friendlies. Young Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher and Vitezslaz Jaros both out injured …
The 'Keeper Conundrum!

The 'Keeper Conundrum!

Heading into the summer transfer window, it has been well documented that as a club, we have some areas in which we are particularly sparse in terms of playing staff - left-back and centre forward spring immediately to my mind. But one area in which we definitely aren't short is in between the sticks, but that still doesn't stop the newspapers linking us to more or less every half decent goalkeeper in Europe. It's not just the senior ranks in …

In Times of Despair, The Academy Brings Hope

After another damaging defeat at Hull City yesterday, Jurgen Klopp's Reds are now five league games without a win (3D, 2L) and a turn in form is now vital if the First Team want to be playing Champions League football next season. However, all is not lost for Liverpool, as Neil Critchley's U18's show. The Liverpool youngsters are currently third in the North Division of the U18 Premier League and look to be heading into Group 1 to fight for …
