Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones: Now What?

Curtis Jones has had quite the season. It started all the way back in September, with his second game in a Liverpool shirt against MK Dons, where he impressed. And he kept impressing, scoring the winning penalty against Arsenal in the EFL Cup, making his Premier League debut in December, scoring THAT goal against Everton in January, becoming the club’s youngest ever captain against Shrewsbury, signing a new deal earlier this month, scoring his first Premier League goal a day …
Fabinho discusses Burnley draw, Jones' performance and team's hopes of achieving PL points record

Fabinho discusses Burnley draw, Jones' performance and team's hopes of achieving PL points record

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho gave his thoughts on The Reds' 1-1 draw with Burnley at Anfield on Saturday. Jürgen Klopp's men couldn't take all three points despite having 70% possession and 9 shots on target. Burnley's Nick Pope was in inspired form for The Clarets, denying Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mané on several occasions. Andy Robertson scored a great header to give Liverpool the lead from Fabinho's excellent assist in the 34th minute. Jay Rodriguez equalised for Burnley with a well-taken …
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool drop points at Anfield in the Premier League for the first time this season after a 1-1 draw with Burnley. The Reds had more than enough chances to win the game but poor finishing and even worse refereeing meant we had to settle for a point. This result means Liverpool will need to win all three of their remaining games to break the league points record. In goal, Alisson had virtually nothing to do all game and stood no …
Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Toothless Liverpool Misfire Their Way To Burnley Draw

Liverpool had their 100% winning record at home in the league taken away from them, after poor finishing and inspired keeper saw them frustratingly draw 1-1 at home to Burnley. Andy Robertson's arching header gave the Reds a merited lead before the visitors -- who were only in the contest thanks to heroics from keeper, Nick Pope -- stole an equaliser through an angled Jay Rodrigues volley. The hosts had two clear penalty shouts denied in a frustrating afternoon. With …
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley - Player Ratings as Reds are made to pay for profligacy

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley - Player Ratings as Reds are made to pay for profligacy

A combination of an inspired Nick Pope in the Burnley goal and some shoddy Liverpool finishing meant that the Reds' perfect Anfield record for the Premier League season brought to a halt with a 1-1 draw against Sean Dyche's side. Andy Robertson gave the Reds the lead in the first half, but Jay Rodriguez equalised late in the second, as the Reds endured a frustrating afternoon. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - 6/10 Nothing he could've done for …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool banked yet another 3 points at Anfield after a very lacklustre 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. Until Mané put the Reds in front in the 70th minute, we failed to create any chance of note whatsoever, with Villa looking the more likely to break the deadlock with numerous dangerous counterattacks. A win is a win, though, which keeps our remarkable run of victories at home continuing along nicely. In goal, Alisson unsurprisingly started and played very well. A couple …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool's hopes of ending the season with a 100% Premier League record at Anfield are still alive after they sparked themselves into life against Aston Villa. It was a lethargic, disjointed display for over an hour, but the slickest move of the match brought a breakthrough for Sadio Mane before Curtis Jones' first league goal confirmed defeat for Villa. Here's how the Reds rated: Alisson - 8 As ever, Alisson made a number of hazardous efforts that came his way …
Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool Bounce Back With Unconvincing Win

Liverpool continued their 100% winning streak in the Premier League this season with a hard fought 2-0 win over Aston Villa at Anfield. Goals from Sadio Mane and Curtis Jones gave the Reds a perhaps flattering win after a stodgy performance against their relegation-threatened visitors. After their drubbing at Manchester City, there was an expectation of a backlash but the Reds’ performance was the antithesis of that. Slow, plodding — littered with poor touches and worse passes — and playing …
Timeless Melody

Timeless Melody

Liverpool and the music scene are inextricably linked. Music and football too are the closest of bedfellows. Liverpool F.C. is synonymous with song and musical theatre through the medium of Gerry Marsden's anthem; the famous rolling strains of the song from Carousel and those iconic words of love and support, You'll Never Walk Alone. It is far more than a football song. More a mantra for decent morals and people addicted to love and loving people, sometimes it can make …
Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

Curtis Jones Could Be Liverpool's New 16/17 Lallana

If you polled people to ask them the words they most associate with Liverpool's midfield, the descriptions you would mostly see would be "functional, stodgy, obstinant, no-frills." While not always the easiest on the eye -- although, when asked to play progressively, they can weave pretty patterns and pass through opponents with the build-up to Roberto Firmino's goal at Manchester City last season a shining example of this -- the Reds' engine room's effectiveness cannot be disputed. With World, European …
