Listless In London

Listless In London

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 …

Watford 3-0 Liverpool - Grim Player Ratings as Reds' Invincible Dream ends at Vicarage Road

The unbeaten run is over. 28 games into the season, Liverpool have lost a game. Watford beat the Reds 3-0 with a vibrant display of counter-attacking football that left Jurgen Klopp's side shellshocked. Ismaila Sarr scored twice and assisted another for Troy Deeney as an awful Liverpool performance got the result that it deserved. Here's how each Liverpool player fared. Spoiler Alert: This is not going to be pretty Alisson Becker - 4/10 Was twitchy in the first half, when …
Lame and Lethargic Liverpool Limp To First League Loss

Lame and Lethargic Liverpool Limp To First League Loss

Liverpool fell to their first League defeat since January 3 2018 after they were drubbed 3-0 away to Watford. A brace from Ismailia Sarr and a Troy Deeney strike condemned the at times hapless Reds to not only a defeat but also scuppered their chances of breaking an English league record with a 19th consecutive league victory. With the wind buffeting around, build up play was rendered difficult for the reds, whose approach play was built on short passes. But …
Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

Why Klopp Is Wrong To Ditch Shrewsbury

So, Jürgen Klopp has announced that he is refusing to manage Liverpool’s FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury because it takes place during Liverpool’s scheduled winter break and that no first team players will take part.

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Contrary to popular belief, Mohamed Salah is much more like Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. The Egyptian superstar may possess the latter's gorgeous left foot and low centre of gravity, but there is so much more about him that screams Ronaldo. Away from the grinning face and all-round likeable personality, there is a huge ego where Salah is concerned - he is someone who knows exactly how good he is, precisely how many goals he has scored and is well …

Matip hasn't featured since the draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford in October. Lovren is returning from …
Debunking the Fabinho myth

Debunking the Fabinho myth

A lot has changed for Liverpool over recent seasons. In the past, when a star name was ruled out through injury fans would count down the days until his return. Now, however, talk turns to whether or not they even get back into the team upon their recovery. When Fabinho hobbled off against Napoli, fans feared the Reds would struggle without him. For the first part of the 2019/20 campaign, a case could be made that the former Monaco man …
