Key Stats As Liverpool Beat Wolves...But Finish Second

Liverpool did everything they could, but fell just short, as a 2-0 win over Wolves on the final day of the season wasn’t enough for them to take home the Premier League title. So what were the key stats from a slightly anti-climactic final day of the season? Trent Flies Again It’s fitting that the season ends with a Trent Alexander-Arnold assist, taking him for 12 to the year, the most ever by a Premier League defender. Trent was excellent …
Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

And then there was one. One last Sunday to say our prayers and hope Manchester City open the door for Liverpool. It had been eight straight wins since a 0-0 draw at Goodison left just enough slack for City to overtake The Reds. The consensus was then that we would have to win out. A win against Wolves would accomplish that, but City have not cooperated. The only pause in their pursuit of a four trophy season has been in …

Match Report: Salah, Mané, Liverpool Top Every Table

There’s a tradition in U.S. where high school (American) football teams will schedule Sister Mary’s School for the Blind for their homecoming weekend so they can show off a bit in front of their girlfriends before the big dance. This… was that. Where was Huddersfield Town in 2013/14? This is the match we wanted Crystal Palace to be. An already relegated side, H-Town capitulated faster than you could crack open your beer with Naby Keita scoring off of a pretty …

Player Ratings as Reds have easy night in demolishing Huddersfield

After the pain and agony of recent victories, where Liverpool had to wait for the goals, it was nice to have a night like that. This season has been a running demonstration of a Huddersfield squad just not good enough to cut it in the Premier League, and they were put to the sword at Anfield, as the Reds toyed with them for a 5-0 win. They were off, up and running in 16 seconds, no less, when Naby Keita …

Cardiff 0-2 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds make it nine in a row

It may not have been the most enjoyable watch, but literally all that matters in the heat of this title battle is the end result. Jurgen Klopp's ever-patient, rarely-ruffled Reds continued their delightful habit of finding a way to win ahead of a potentially decisive Manchester derby on Wednesday. It was a set-piece that provided the opener against the resolute hosts shortly before the hour mark, with Georginio Wijnaldum lashing a bouncing ball beyond Neil Etheridge. Substitute James Milner then …

Cardiff 0 Liverpool 2 Match Report: Klopp On Top on Easter Sunday

A scuffed volley that lands perfectly on a Cardiff boot, caromed up to the top shelf where Grandma hides last year’s Easter Peeps. In season’s past, this would have been the ender, the heartbreak moment we all fear but deep down, somehow expect. But, this is Alisson Becker and he doesn’t have time for your anxieties. He simply punches a potential atomic-bomb over the bar in the 43rd minute and Liverpool go again. https://twitter.com/jamespearceecho/status/1119990370694201344?s=21 Liverpool came into the match against …
Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool’s grip on the Premier League title loosened again, as their fourth draw in six league games saw them slip behind Manchester City in the table with nine games left to play after another insipid performance saw them draw 0-0 with Everton at Goodison Park. Klopp’s side controlled the first half, with the midfield selection of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson designed to do just that. But for all of the control, there was very little cutting edge, and when Liverpool …

Player Ratings as Klopp keeps his balls off the table

Training's cancelled on Tuesday, sorry lads. Klopp's got to go and attend a maths lesson, in order to learn that 1 win and 1 loss = 3 points, whereas 2 draws = 2 points. Honestly, I understand the conservatism to an extent but we had Everton. We had them. Forget the second half for a moment, in the first 45 we had two or three excellent chances, they didn't have a shot on target. They were bullied, pegged back and …

Player ratings as Reds rout Watford

That was alright, wasn't it? Manchester City can take their dodgy penalty, 1-0 win. I'll have five fabulous goals served up by those beautiful men in red, keeping us top of the table and dreaming for a few more days at least. Everton at Goodison on Sunday will offer more of a challenge, however that is tomorrow's focus. Tonight, sleep easy thinking about that league table. Hat-trick for TAA Alisson Becker (7): Another clean sheet, is it? 3-0 up and he …
