Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Key Stats from another goalless derby at Goodison

Liverpool were back in Premier League action for the first time in over three months and it was an absolutely rubbish game of football. A 0-0 draw at Goodison Park feels like a story we’ve heard before, and sadly Liverpool’s wait for the title will now extend beyond their home game against Crystal Palace on Wednesday as they dropped points for just the third time all season. The Lovren Effect Dejan Lovren replaced the injured Joël Matip with fifteen minutes …
Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

Player ratings as Liverpool complete annual Goodison draw

The Premier League is well and truly back. Excitement at seeing Keita in the team, Milner picking up a needless yellow and Liverpool drawing 0-0 at Goodison Park. Almost like we never stopped, right? Admittedly not the best game ever for the neutral, Everton should have won truth be told. Still, we have an actual game of football to analyse, so let's get going with the ratings. Alisson dazzles Alisson Becker (8): If this game is played similarly three months ago, …
Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

Lacklustre derby should reinvigorate lethargic Liverpool

After waiting eagerly for 106 days for Liverpool to get back into action, the Merseyside derby was in all honesty quite a languid affair. The hype far outweighed the action, as Liverpool toiled but rarely troubled Everton, who had the better chances at Goodison Park, but the spoils were shared as Merseyside welcomed back Premier League football. There were positives to take on the short trip back to Anfield; Naby Keita looked incredibly sharp and was easily Liverpool's stand-out man. …

When the upcoming fixture list gets released, one of the biggest matches of the season is always Everton at Goodison Park. It is a match that carries great importance for the city and supporters of each side. As the first match back for both Liverpool and Everton since the Premier League shut down due to the coronavirus, the Merseyside Derby carried with it even more meaning this time around. As Jurgen Klopp has said, football is often the most important …
Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Everton 0-0 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

After over 100 days without seeing the Reds in action in the Premier League, we were treated to as drab a derby as you’re ever likely to see. 0-0 was perhaps the most predictable scoreline when looking at the recent results at Goodison Park - combine that with the fact neither side has played a competitive match in three months, a scoreless draw was always very likely. Everton will perhaps feel a tad unlucky seeing as they forced a good …
Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Listless Liverpool Labour to Goodison Stalemate.

Liverpool missed the chance to move closer to a 19th league title as they laboured to a scoreless draw with Everton in the Merseyside Derby at Goodison Park. The Reds owned the possession but -- shorn of the services of injury precaution rested Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson -- struggled to prize open the stubborn, deep sitting defence of the home team. The lack of fluency that a three-month break would engender on a team was evident and the visitors …

Liverpool defender believes this Reds squad will remain hungry for further success

Liverpool's Croatia international centre-back Dejan Lovren says that the squad Jürgen Klopp has developed at Anfield "will stay hungry" for more success. Since Klopp's arrival on Merseyside in October 2015, Liverpool have gone from strength-to-strength, reaching two consecutive Champions League finals, winning the second one in Madrid last June. The Reds also achieved a record Premier League points total for the club finishing on 97 last season, just one behind champions Manchester City. This season, Klopp's mighty redmen opened up …
Liverpool Could See Ideal Player In Blind

Liverpool Could See Ideal Player In Blind

As football has hit the corona-virus induced pause button, the whirling world of transfer rumours shows no sign of slowing down. And despite the Bundesliga CEO, Christian Seifert, warning that the summer transfer window could collapse with the financial perils of the sports hiatus financially hamstringing clubs capabilities to spend big in the market, the likes of Liverpool -- who announced record profits, £42M, for the last financial year -- still have the means to land their targets. Although the …

After an extremely poor loss away to Watford that ended Liverpool’s chances to set several records in the league this season, Liverpool had a chance to turn the page with a quick turnaround trip to Chelsea in the FA Cup. A win at Stamford Bridge could start to set things right after they had gone terribly wrong since Liverpool returned from a brief winter break. Jurgen Klopp even showed some respect for the FA Cup – take that, haters – …
Watford 3-0 Liverpool: Who was the Disaster of the Match?

Watford 3-0 Liverpool: Who was the Disaster of the Match?

Our unbeaten run in the league is over. The Reds go down 3-0 away to Watford after, without question, one of the worst performances in years. Liverpool failed to create a single decent chance in the entire 90 minutes and thoroughly deserved to be soundly beaten by the relegation-threatened Hornets. In the net, Alisson can’t really be blamed for any of the goals. A tap in for Sarr’s first, a smart dink for his second and just an absolute calamity …
