Liverpool 3-0 Leicester: Player ratings as Reds make more history

Liverpool 3-0 Leicester: Player ratings as Reds make more history

Liverpool have extended their home unbeaten run into club-record territory following a hugely impressive victory against high-flying Leicester. Without Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and Mohamed Salah, the three-and-a-half-year streak was in serious peril. But the Reds scoffed at that suggestion, powering to victory with strikes from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino after a Jonny Evans own goal. Here's how they rated. Alisson - 7/10 A second Premier League clean sheet is welcome for …
Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Rampant Reds Flatten Foxes

Liverpool comprehensively defeated Leicester City 3-0 at Anfield to move level with Tottenham at the top of the table. A Jonny Evans own goal, and headers from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino sealed the victory for the Reds in an imperious performance of attacking football. Were it not for the numerous saves of Kasper Schmeichel in the visitors' goal and two goal-bound shots being cleared off the line, the Champions would have won by a more handsome margin. The pre-match …
How can Liverpool get Robert Firmino firing?

How can Liverpool get Robert Firmino firing?

Roberto Firmino looked like the odd man out in attack against Manchester City. In truth, it’s nothing to be embarrassed by really.  After all, most players would have trouble keeping up with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Diogo Jota. The Brazilan has never been blessed with blistering pace, but it was never really an issue. Mentally, he was always a couple of seconds ahead of opponents. That no longer seems to be the case.  The Liverpool No.9 has always been …
Xherdan Shaqiri Cameos Offer Liverpool Reminder Of His Talents

Xherdan Shaqiri Cameos Offer Liverpool Reminder Of His Talents

After missing the vast majority of last season through a succession of niggling calf injuries, Xherdan Shaqiri has given Liverpool a timely reminder of his abilities over the course of the last week. Coming off the bench against Midtjylland and West Ham respectively, the Swiss international was key to the Reds eking out two wins that could prove to be vitally important come the campaign's end. Against the Danes in the Champions League at Anfield, Shaqiri played a beautiful, against …
Liverpool's Atalanta Academy Appearances Point To Bright Future

Liverpool's Atalanta Academy Appearances Point To Bright Future

Diogo Jota's hat-trick and Liverpool's overall performance were the main talking points from the Reds' 5-0 hammering of Atalanta last Tuesday. But it shouldn't be lost in the narrative that the English champions featured four homegrown, academy produced players over the course of the 90 minutes in Bergamo. Rhys Williams slotted in comfortably at centre half next to Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones -- alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson -- was part of the midfield three and Trent Alexander started …
Atalanta 0-5 Liverpool: Player ratings from a masterclass in Bergamo

Atalanta 0-5 Liverpool: Player ratings from a masterclass in Bergamo

Liverpool produced their best performance of the season so far and one of their finest under Jurgen Klopp in a rout of Atalanta. The Reds made a mockery of the Serie A side's fearsome reputation in the scintillating 5-0 victory, with Diogo Jota hitting a hat-trick to continue his staggering start. Here is how the Reds rated. Alisson Becker - 7/10 After a nervy start which saw a couple of tame efforts nearly squirm away, Alisson authoritatively maintained Liverpool's third …
Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 West Ham: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier with a hard-fought 2-1 win over West Ham United at Anfield. The Reds went a goal down early on but once again showed an incredible mentality to battle on and steal all three points. We weren’t at our best but the result is the most important thing, especially in this horrifically congested, soulless season. In goal, Alisson had very little to do and didn’t have much of a chance for the West …
Liverpool Player Ratings: Subs rally Reds past Hammers

Liverpool Player Ratings: Subs rally Reds past Hammers

Liverpool beat West Ham United 2-1 at Anfield, after coming from behind, with Diogo Jota scoring a late winner at the Kop End. Pablo Fornals put West Ham ahead early in the game with a neat strike that gave Alisson no chance in the Reds' goal. After plenty of huffing and puffing, the Reds were gifted a penalty late in the first half, when Arthur Masuaku fouled Mohamed Salah in the box. The Egyptian made no mistake with the penalty. …
Jota Fires Limp Liverpool To Hammers Victory

Jota Fires Limp Liverpool To Hammers Victory

A late goal from substitute Diogo Jota saw Liverpool grind out an unspectacular 2-1 victory over West Ham United at Anfield. After trailing 1-0 to a Pablo Fornals goal for the visitors, the hosts rallied and leveled through a Mohamed Salah penalty near the half time mark. Then, after a double change from manager Jurgen Klopp, Jota -- after an assist from fellow substitute Xherdan Shaqiri -- cooly fired home the winner. It was an insipid showing, but, as ever, …
Exciting Jota looks the perfect fit for Liverpool

Exciting Jota looks the perfect fit for Liverpool

For so long, Liverpool have been crying out for top class quality behind Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. The Reds' front-three have been the best attacking unit in world football over the past three years, but if one of them is missing, their absence is felt hugely. Taking out one of the trio has instantly made Liverpool a far less daunting proposition, with those in reserve not cutting the mustard, whether it be Xherdan Shaqiri or Divock Origi, …
