Liverpool 5-2 Everton: Key Stats as Reds send Blues crashing into bottom three

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: Key Stats as Reds send Blues crashing into bottom three

Recently the Merseyside Derby has proven an almost excruciatingly tense encounter, decided by fine margins. But not here. This time Liverpool laid bare the gulf in quality, powering five goals past Jordan Pickford and piling the misery on their neighbours. Klopp left supporters stunned by ringing the changes, but even with the hosts at approximately 50% strength Everton were outmuscled. Their two goals are an inconvenience for Liverpool and scant solace for their supporters, who trudged home all-too-aware that the …
Player Ratings as Liverpool stick five past the Ev

Player Ratings as Liverpool stick five past the Ev

There are holes to pick that performance and a nagging concern that Liverpool's defensive lapses will eventually lead to some dropped league points, but the day we stop beating our rivals 5-2 is the day we pack it all in. Divock Origi loves a big game, Sadio Mane is a magician and Everton are really bad are my main takeaways, and here are my ratings. Snide, silly errors and more from the defence Adrian (6): Not giving him too much blame …
Origi Haunts Everton Again As Liverpool Win Derby

Origi Haunts Everton Again As Liverpool Win Derby

Liverpool restored their lead at the top of the Premier League table to eight points with a 5-2 Merseyside win over Everton at Anfield. A brace from Divock Origi and further goals from Sadio Mane, Georginio Wijnaldum and Xherdan Shaqiri gave the much changed Reds the win in a flowing game of football. The victory was the 100th in the Premier League reign of Jurgen Klopp in his 159th game as the manager of the European Champions. Everton, tactically braver …
Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie. The Alpine Messi has been hampered by a niggling injury to one of those enormous calves of his and has barely featured this season for Klopp's …
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

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

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 …
