Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

P.H.E.W. That was painful, even infuriating at times, but in the end, Liverpool came away with a 1-0 win against Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium to stay joint-top of the Premier League. Mo Salah's 24th-minute goal, set up by Xherdan Shaqiri, was enough for Klopp's men to win on an evening where their opponents were industrious, but often just not good enough to break open what was a rather fragile rearguard. Klopp surprised everyone from the off, as both …
Player Ratings as Liverpool and City draw a blank

Player Ratings as Liverpool and City draw a blank

Far from the frenetic games we saw between these two last season, this was a pretty dull affair with Liverpool and Manchester City both locking horns in a goalless draw. There was drama, such as Riyad Mahrez's late penalty which was as successful as when Phil Jones steps up to the spot, alongside chances for Mohamed Salah that would've been comfortably buried last season, but there was an overriding lack of golden opportunities for either team. Here are the player …
Napoli 1-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

Napoli 1-0 Liverpool: What went wrong?

In light of Liverpool's first truly meaningful loss of the season, perspective is important. The Reds are joint-top of the Premier League and are still well-placed to progress to the Champions League knockouts with back-to-back games against relative minnows Red Star to come. Still, the quite shambolic nature of the performance must be recognised. Some will dismiss it as an 'off night', while others may see genuine cause for concern. Below is an attempted summation of the reasons for a …
The Year of the Studge?

The Year of the Studge?

When Daniel Sturridge entered the fray on Saturday night, there was a sense of something resembling relief. Even before he scored, the truth was that you felt Liverpool had a better chance of something happening with him on the pitch. That’s always been the impression with Sturridge. Whatever you think of the player, it’s hard to argue that you’re ever unhappy to see him in the team, or coming off the bench. As a Liverpool fan, you’re only ever frustrated …
Dominic Solanke - The Forgotten Cause

Dominic Solanke - The Forgotten Cause

Dom Solanke is yet to even be named in the matchday squad this season. Having not played a game of football since pre-season, in which he did not particularly impress, this is only going to hinder the progress of the former Chelsea player. In his debut season he managed to score one goal in 21 appearances, albeit most of them were coming on from the bench. In a way, the expectations placed on his head to come into games late …
How a Second Striker Can Help Liverpool Break Down Low Blocks

How a Second Striker Can Help Liverpool Break Down Low Blocks

With Liverpool having one of the most feared attacks in Europe for the past season, we are seeing more and more teams sit back and defend deep against us. Although the past season has seen us improve in the way we play against these type of sides there are still too many occasions when the team's patterns of play and types of attack become way too predictable. Games at home to Burnley and Manchester United and away to Newcastle and …
Liverpool's Bit-Part Players Essential To Fast Start

Liverpool's Bit-Part Players Essential To Fast Start

Three games in, and Liverpool’s start to the Premier League campaign has been impressive, if not necessarily electrifying. The Reds started explosively against West Ham, but in the following two games, against Palace away and Brighton at home, Liverpool have relied more on a strong and stable defensive base than their typical vibrant attacking play. What’s interesting is that Liverpool’s early success has been based not necessarily on the traditional names that you might expect to be the big players. …

Liverpool maintained their 100% win rate as they overcame a dogged Brighton side to win by the odd goal. Liverpool had their chances but were not in their best rhythm as they struggled to convert those chances into goals. Brighton were solid for most part of the game and should not be disheartened by the result considering their recent record against Liverpool.

Liverpool soar to the top on opening day of campaign

Liverpool soar to the top on opening day of campaign

It was the moment we'd all been waiting for. Liverpool kicked off their 2018/19 Premier League campaign against West Ham at Anfield brimming with confidence and optimism for the season ahead. The summer business had been done, and done well, bringing in Xherdan Shaqiri, Fabinho, the long-awaited Naby Keita and Brazil's No.1 Alisson Becker to boot. Daniel Sturridge's summer revival and the overall pre-season form had suggested this could really be Liverpool's year with a 5-0 romping of Napoli only …
