What went wrong against Chelsea

What went wrong against Chelsea

Losing and getting beat are two different things entirely. Many things in football are random and this can play a huge part in performances not getting the results they deserve. You can take those losses on the chin, sort of. For example, in some games Liverpool have lost this season, they’ve been the better side, they’ve had the better chances, but they’ve not had the required luck. Play them 100 times over and the Reds win 95 of them, that …
Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool moved within two points of fourth with a 2-0 victory away to Sheffield United. Goals from man of the match Curtis Jones and a deflected Roberto Firmino drive gave the Reds a richly deserved win at Bramall Lane. Were it not from the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale in the hosts' goals, the defending champions -- who had eight shots on target -- would have won by a much healthier margin, which would have reflected their dominance. With Alisson given …
Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

So apparently football really does determine your mood. After an awful run of results for Liverpool, they roared back on Tuesday night, making a formidable RB Leipzig side look as average as a mid-table Premier League side. That weight was instantly lifted, whether it be for Jurgen Klopp, his players or the supporters, as the Reds produced a performance that suggests they are back. Alisson responded well after a shocking couple of games; Trent Alexander-Arnold was influential; Ozan Kabak and …
Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Will this be Liverpool's lineup to face Aston Villa tonight in the FA Cup?

Liverpool travel to Villa Park tonight as they prepare to face Dean Smith's Aston Villa in the third round of the FA Cup. Jürgen Klopp is likely to field a much-changed side for The Reds as some youth talent and squad players are given the opportunity to showcase their talents in a push towards the first team. It is the ideal time for some of Liverpool's stars to be rested after some jaded-looking Premier League outings in recent weeks. Caoimhin …
Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool remain top of the Premier League table, despite a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park. A combination of bad finishing from the visitors -- an aspect of the game where Mohamed Salah was particularly guilty -- and the saves of Karl Darlow kept the hosts in the contest as the Reds failed to prize open their low block defence on enough occasions. Newcastle had opportunities themselves and Fabinho saved Nat Phillips blushes when he diverted a …
Curtis Jones' Rise Unveils Potential Liverpool Blueprint For Thiago

Curtis Jones' Rise Unveils Potential Liverpool Blueprint For Thiago

Curtis Jones' meteoric rise continued last Wednesday as the youngster played a vital role in Liverpool's 2-1 top of the table victory over Spurs at Anfield. The 19-year-old's all-action showing -- which is quickly becoming his trademark -- gave the Reds a platform to move back to the top of the table with a deserved victory over Jose Mourinho's Catenaccio cockerels. On the ball, the academy graduate completed 106 from 113 pass attempts. He also carried the ball effectively, entering …
Harvey Elliott Future Proofing Liverpool's Midfield

Harvey Elliott Future Proofing Liverpool's Midfield

Liverpool's young players have won much acclaim this season. Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher, Neco Williams, and Rhys Williams have all played a big part in the Reds' campaign -- probably owing to the injury crisis that has engulfed the first team and the opportunities it has given them to play -- so far and have done themselves proud with some strong performances. Another Liverpool youngster -- albeit one who is out on loan -- is excelling this season is Blackburn …
Curtis Jones A Liverpool Star In The Making

Curtis Jones A Liverpool Star In The Making

Jurgen Klopp's plans have been hampered by injuries this season. At the time of writing, Liverpool have ten first-team players missing with injuries. The midfield -- where Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri, and James Milner are all injury absences -- has been particularly afflicted by set-backs. But with misfortune for some comes opportunities for others. Curtis Jones, who only made six appearances in all competitions last season, has taken his chance in the team with both …
Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

Liverpool Academy Efficiency Highlighted in Ajax Win

With justification, Ajax are considered one of the best talent producing clubs in world football. Footballing luminaries such as Johan Cruijff, Marco van Basten, Dennis Bergkamp and Wesley Sneijder, among many others, have cut their footballing teeth in the Amsterdam club's academy system. But in Liverpool's 1-0 Champions League victory over Ajax last Tuesday, it was the Merseyside club's homegrown players who stood up and tilted the game in the favour of the Anfield team. Caoimhin Kelleher, Curtis Jones and …
Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

Tactical Breakdown: Liverpool 1-0 Ajax

After last week's home defeat to Atalanta - Liverpool's twelfth loss at Anfield in the European Cup/Champions League - Group D was suddenly fraught with unexpected possibilities. Jürgen Klopp's men, amidst a biblical injury crisis, needed to settle their European affairs as soon as possible, but given the nature of recent performances and the strength of Ajax, victory was by no means a foregone conclusion. The Reds set up in a 4-3-3, with Salah and Mané flanking Jota, in place …
