Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Manchester United 1-1 Liverpool - Player Ratings as below-par Reds sneak Old Trafford draw

Well, that was horrendous. Liverpool should not have let this Manchester United side get away as easily as they did at Old Trafford tonight. The Reds went down in the first half to a contentious Marcus Rashford goal, but Adam Lallana's late equaliser spared the blushes, as Jurgen Klopp's men remained the only unbeaten side in the Premier League this season. Right from the get-go, the Reds were lethargic, as shoddy passing and lazy movements defined the play in the …
Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool’s grip on the Premier League title loosened again, as their fourth draw in six league games saw them slip behind Manchester City in the table with nine games left to play after another insipid performance saw them draw 0-0 with Everton at Goodison Park. Klopp’s side controlled the first half, with the midfield selection of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson designed to do just that. But for all of the control, there was very little cutting edge, and when Liverpool …

Title hopes Hammered as Liverpool draw 1-1 in London.

Remember the sweet tranquility of those 1-0 snooze-fests that we used to complain about early in the season? How much would you give for a few of those now? Jurgen Klopp set Liverpool up with a few surprises. Gini Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson were absent with injuries, leaving a skeleton crew with Adam Lallana starting in midfield and James Milner at right-back. A strong enough eleven none the less, embarked on an up and down affair with both teams getting …
Player ratings as Liverpool are foiled by the Foxes

Player ratings as Liverpool are foiled by the Foxes

Where to start with that one? A point gained, two points lost? Klopp's substitutions? The refereeing? The pitch? Liverpool go five points clear. In a week where Manchester City played away at one of the worst teams in the league, we've extended our lead. Yet, it could have been so much more. Sadio Mané's early goal had us set up for a perfect evening, only for Slabhead Maguire to spoil everyone's fun. 1-1 and onto the next one, I suppose. …
Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds share the spoils with Gunners

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Player Ratings as Reds share the spoils with Gunners

Phew. That was a game and a half, and in the end, probably a fair result too. Arsenal dominated Liverpool territorially and in terms of possession, but the Reds had much the better chances through the game. In the end, the 1-1 result seemed fair, on the whole balance of play though. James Milner put the Reds in the lead before Alexandre Lacazette equalised for Arsenal. Here's how each player fared. ALISSON BECKER - 5/10 He was immensely lucky on …
Liverpool Fans - An acquaintance with disappointment

Liverpool Fans - An acquaintance with disappointment

In a season littered with frustrating, inexcusable results, Liverpool FC managed to outdo themselves one more time: and in doing so, gifted away control over their own fate, at perhaps the expense of a Champions League spot. The manner in which Liverpool went 1-0 down was all too familiar, with a dreadful defensive error this time, courtesy of Wijnaldum. For the following twenty minutes, Liverpool looked bereft of ideas, shaken and Anfield watched on, in that routine nervousness the fans have become far …
