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

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

Another unnecessarily nervy ending to a game we largely dominated. We’re making a bit of a habit of conceding every game despite the opposition creating very little. A win is a win, though, and it sees us move to the top of the group after Napoli drew with Salzburg. You’ve always got to be happy with three points, especially when key players were left out of the starting line up to keep them fresh for the weekend. Having said that, …
Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool Return To Group E Summit With 2-1 Genk Win

Liverpool climbed to the top of the Group E table with a 2-1 win over Genk at Anfield. Goals from Georginio Wijnaldum and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain sufficed for the Reds, despite the concession of a goal to Mbwana Samatta. Having started the game in second place, Napoli's 1-1 draw with Salzburg in Italy means Jurgen Klopp's men will be top when they entertain Carlo Ancelotti's side on match day 5 on November 27th. Electing to make wholesale changes -- six …
Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

Liverpool 2-1 Genk - Player Ratings as Reds go top of Champions League group

It was not a vintage performance. It was far from a European night at Anfield that will be remembered for long. But, in the end, Liverpool got themselves a 2-1 win over Genk that put them top of Group E, and took a big step towards qualification for the Round of 16. Gini Wijnaldum's early goal was cancelled out by Mbwana Samatta's header just before half-time. But Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped up to score the winner, and become the Reds' joint …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …
Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Shootout Success Sees Liverpool Into League Cup Last 8

Liverpool booked their place in the Carabao Cup quarter finals after a 5-4 penalty shootout win settled their spectacular ten goal thriller with Arsenal. Young Irish goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher saved Dani Ceballos' spot kick -- the only penalty missed in the shootout -- and this gave fellow academy graduate Curtis Jones the opportunity to win the shootout with the final Reds penalty. The 19 year old Scouser, cool as a breeze, slotted low into the left corner past Emilliano Martinez …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
Genk vs Liverpool, Three things we expect from the Champions

Genk vs Liverpool, Three things we expect from the Champions

Although they are the current holders of the Champions League trophy, Liverpool are looking to end a run of defeats away from home in the competition. The Reds succumbed to three away defeats in the league last season and they were subjected to a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Serie A giants Napoli this term. Jurgen Klopp's side currently sits in second place in Group E of the Champions league table, one point adrift of table-toppers Napoli, same points …

Jurgen Klopp revealed that Divock Origi will undergo scan this week

Liverpool's Divock Origi will undergo a scan on the ankle injury he sustained against Newcastle on Saturday according to Reds boss Jurgen Klopp. Origi needed treatment after going down injured in the early stages of Liverpool's 3-1 win over Newcastle.

Reserved Reds Retain Summit Status

Reserved Reds Retain Summit Status

Liverpool retained top spot in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Anfield in Saturday's 12:30 kick off. A brace of goals from Sadio Mané as well as a Mohamed Salah strike were enough to seal the win for Jurgen Klopp's men, despite falling behind to an early Jetro Willems goal from the visitor's. The hosts made two additions from their 3-0 win away to Burnley three weeks ago, with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain coming in for …
Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

Liverpool's transfer conundrum is their biggest strength

People will have you believe that Liverpool find themselves in a tricky situation in the transfer market. With Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah all guaranteed starters for the Reds, finding adequate back-ups for the trio is a task. Not an impossible one but very much a difficult one.  Gary Neville made the point recently that the attacking trident is too good and it’s because of this that players will be reluctant to sign for the European champions.  To …
