Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Luis Diaz Low key good performance, in a tough contest. The minutes are mounting, and fatigue is starting to show. Diaz had really good moments, and was brilliant in his delivery for Mane’s goal. He was perhaps less incisive from the right, but he stretched the play and still looked to run defenders at every opportunity …

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Luis Diaz He changed the game, and is still pushing to become Liverpools most important forward. He came on after an horrendous first half, and forced the Spanish back line to stretch as he hugged the far touchline. He threatened and threatened, and finally got his goal with a well taken header. What a signing this man had been, and he was able to relax a stressed fanbase …
Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 A relative spectator for the first half, and did fine things in possession. Was able to stay focused throughout. A very nice outing as sweeper keeper. Trent Alexander-Arnold 8.0 Brilliant work early on, with a rampaging urgency to help create the opening goal. Was a keen tracker when Sancho came on, and showed fine defensive ability to snuff out that threat. Andy Robertson - 9.0 Up and down as always, his enthusiasm wasn’t entirely matched by …

Observations: Against Benfica, the real Naby Keita stood up

In a recent interview, Naby Keita said 'I don't believe we've seen the real Naby Keita just yet. I've had quite a few injuries & I'm trying to get back to full form & fitness. Recently I've felt 100%. It's my aim to try and establish myself and be seen in the world of football either this season or the next.'

Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Man of the Match

Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Man of the Match

Luis Diaz This could well have gone to Ibrahima Konate, if not for the mistake and brief period of poor play at the start of the second half. The man of the match must however go to a player that was at times unplayable, and perhaps the man that has decided the tie. Luis Diaz worked relentlessly, drove with a fierce intent, and was a constant out ball for Trent. A great piece of movement and assist for the second …

Under Pressure: Textbook Rotation, Perfect Pressing and Naby's Great Form

Liverpool may have lost to Inter Milan at Anfield, but the Under Pressure boys soon to put to bed any doubt that the Reds deserved to go through with a comprehensive run down of the key stats from the two legged tie: 3.1 xG to 0.8 coupled with FIVE big chances to the Italian side's zero. Case closed. However, the main focus of the podcast was the victory over Brighton - including the continued impressive rotation, the controlled pressing and …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …

Under Pressure: Pressing Monsters & Penalty Analytics

It was a double header on the Under Pressure show this week, and although they touched on the incredibly impressive performance last week against Leeds (eight big chances and six goals) the main focus was on the first trophy of the season: Liverpool are League Cup champions. First up was the key pressing story from the match - and more importantly the differing contrast with the fixture at the turn of the new year at Stamford Bridge. Furthermore there was …
Luis Diaz - A South American Dream

Luis Diaz - A South American Dream

The transfer of one Luis Diaz to Liverpool, happened almost as quickly as Kaiser Soze disappeared. Tottenham were in talks, apparently West Ham had interest, and even Manchester United were keeping tabs, and just like that, he was here. With only a month gone since the window closed, it’s a magnificent first chapter in the Columbian's early Liverpool career. With a string of brilliant moments and performances, it very much looks like the Michael Edwards transfer team has struck gold …
