Trent Alexander-Arnold A great game for this special talent. His attacking play is undeniable, with two brilliant deliveries nearly seeing both his giant centre-backs score in the first half.

Great coverage, awareness and strength, against a very good European team. Was able to control situations with maturity and confidence, and is becoming a leader in this …

Liverpool 0-1 Inter (2-1 agg.): Observations as Reds edge past I Nerazzurri

Liverpool are through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League after beating Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate. Lautaro Martinez ripped one beyond Alisson just after the hour but Inter had the wind in their sails for all of two minutes before Alexis Sanchez picked up a second yellow. The reigning Serie A champions retreated, hoping for a counterattacking opportunity that never really materialised. They proved themselves to be an excellent side over the first two legs, and can take …

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The dominant Brazilian made a great stop in the first half from Hakan Çalhanoğlu, off an Inter free kick.

Had little chance with the Martinez goal, as the game became frantic. Trent Alexander Arnold - 8.0 A first half that really showed his growing defensive abilities.

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report The first half was a game of frustration for both sides, with neither giving much away through the opening period. Both Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk could have scored from tremendous Trent deliveries, and Alisson was alert enough to parry away a good cross come shot from Hakan Çalhanoğlu. These great teams appeared intent on cancelling each other out, which of course suited the reds far more. The second half …

Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Curtis Jones was named in the starting XI for Liverpool’s match against Leicester City. He then didn’t make the cut for the squad in the following three games. It may seem ruthless and a little harsh from Jurgen Klopp, but when everyone is fit, the competition for a place in the matchday squad is like never before.  Someone has to miss out.  Jones is versatile but he isn’t as versatile as James Milner or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, for example. Because of …

Konate or Matip: Who should start next to Van Dijk for Liverpool?

We as Liverpool fans are not used to having proper squad depth. It might explain why we’re always so eager to pit players against one another and declare one the winner.  We did it with Kostas Tsimikas and Andrew Robertson earlier on in the season. Instead of marvelling at the fact we had left-back cover for a player many consider to be the best in the world in their position, there seemed to be an eagerness to declare Tsimikas was …

Under Pressure - Classical Tactical Battle & Superb Salah

It was another double header for the Under Pressure boys: the two-nil victory away at Inter Milan in the San Siro in the knockout stage of the Champions League, as well as the 3-1 win at home to Norwich in the Premier League. While the Reds ended up winning in Italy in the first leg, it was the pressing that was a huge part of the match, with both sides vying for the chance to dominate, but no-one ever quite …

They may not be as strong as they were last season under Conte after selling their best two players, but regardless, this was certain to be a test for Klopp's team.
