Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

When Liverpool win their opening Champions League group game 3-2 at Anfield, it tends to be good omen. This was a game that got the juices flowing in a similar vein to that victory over Paris Saint-Germain three years ago, except this time the scoreline gave it the illusion of a contest. Thanks to a Jordan Henderson winner that will universally be called Steven Gerrard-esque, Liverpool can bask in what was, on the whole, a supremely dominant display. Here's how …
Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

Liverpool's Divock Origi conundrum

The Divock Origi situation is interesting.  Liverpool are believed to want £20million for the Belgium international. Interested clubs are reluctant to go that high, with Wolves reportedly willing to pay £10million for the 26-year-old.  On one hand, clubs know he’s not part of the first-team picture at Anfield having made just two Premier League starts last season and seven when the Reds won the title. His last league goal for the Reds was on the final day of the 2019/20 …
What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Divock Origi: One of the most curious LFC careers

Most Liverpool careers are easy to define. Some are legendary figures who reach world-class levels for the Reds, some are great servants who rarely let the team down and others are disaster areas, to name just a few examples. It is often simple to fit an individual into a certain category, using their back catalogue of performances as a perfect way to gauge them, but then there's someone like Divock Origi. It looks highly likely that the Belgian will move …
Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

Liverpool Need To Think Big To Replace Divock Origi

By all accounts, Divock Origi's time at Liverpool will come to an end in this summer's transfer window. After a brilliant end to the 2018/2019 season, where the Belgian had a telling hand in both the Reds qualifying for -- with two goals in the semi-final against Barcelona -- and winning -- the forward's goal put the finishing touches in the 2-0 victory over Spurs in the showpiece -- the Champions League, the 26-year-old has failed to recapture that form …
Player Ratings for Liverpool 3-1 West Ham

Player Ratings for Liverpool 3-1 West Ham

January may have been a rough month to start for Liverpool, but a couple matches in the capital at the end of the month have firmly put the Reds back on track and in title contention again. Alisson – 7 The handsome Brazilian wasn’t asked to do much today with Antonio surprisingly ineffective and Soucek subdued, but he came off his line well several times to snuff out danger and make sure the Hammers didn’t find any joy in the …
Liverpool Light Up London Again In West Ham Win

Liverpool Light Up London Again In West Ham Win

Liverpool moved to third in the Premier League table after a 3-1 win away to West Ham United at the London Stadium. A brace from Mohamed Salah as well as a Georginio Wijnaldum goal sent the Reds into a 3-0 lead before Craig Dawson pulled a consolation back for the hosts with only a few minutes remaining. Jurgen Klopp elected to make three changes from the victory away to Tottenham in midweek and Divock Origi, Xherdan Shaqiri, and Nat Phillips …
Liverpool Lose Anfield Streak In Burnley League defeat

Liverpool Lose Anfield Streak In Burnley League defeat

Liverpool's 68 game home Premier League unbeaten record at Anfield was ended by Burnley in a 1-0 defeat. A controversial late penalty from Ashley Barnes gave the Clarets the three points and condemned the Reds to their first league reversal at home since April 2017. Despite dominating the possession and territory throughout the toothless defending champions -- who have now gone four consecutive Premier League games without scoring -- couldn't force the ball past Nick Pope and now find themselves …
Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Thiago Influence Can Lift Jordan Henderson To Old Self

Jordan Henderson is an extremely versatile player, as we've seen throughout the entirety of his Liverpool career. Whether it's been as the midfield anchor, as an energetic, box to box tornado of engine room intensity or -- as we saw in his first season with the Reds, under Kenny Dalglish -- as a right midfielder in midfield four, the captain has been a consistent performer for most of the time since his summer 2011 move from Sunderland. Playing as the …
Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Liverpool will welcome back all of their international players in the next day or two after last night's UEFA Nations League action. Some players - such as Caoimhín Kelleher and Divock Origi - didn't get any game time on Wednesday night. Kelleher and Origi were unused substitutes for Ireland and Belgium respectively. Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum were in action in the Netherlands' 1-1 draw away to Italy. For England, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson continued his journey back to …
