Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool Advance Thanks To Lincoln Assassination

Liverpool will play Arsenal in the fourth round of the League Cup after they thumped Lincoln City 7-2 away. A brace of goals from both Takumi Minamino and Curtis Jones, as well as further strikes from Divock Origi, Marko Grujic, and Xherdan Shaqiri sealed the much-changed Reds' passage into the next round. The game was seen as a shop window for some of Liverpool's fringe players and Shaqiri, in particular, would have done either his prospects of remaining part of …

Liverpool 1-0 Everton: Observations as Jones piles misery on Blues

Every victory over Everton is immensely satisfying, but this was particularly memorable. For once, Liverpool were underdogs, but with the burden of pressure instead falling upon Blue shoulders, they buckled, and Curtis Jones made them pay in dazzling style. Rarely has football seen a hoodoo on the scale of the Toffees at Anfield. More than twenty years have passed since their last victory in enemy territory, and even against a team cheaper than Gylfi Sigurdsson they could not banish their …

Player Ratings as the baby Reds defeat Everton

Arguably the most fun I've had watching Liverpool all season, there. The absolute state of Everton Football Club. Appoint one of the greatest managers the game has ever seen, rock up at Anfield to play against Adam Lallana's Nursery XI and STILL come away with a defeat. They might be awful on the pitch, but their commitment to banter is up there with the best in the world. Curtis Jones with the only goal of the game and what a …
Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Young Liverpool Dump Everton Out of FA Cup

Liverpool advanced to the fourth round of the FA Cup at the expense of their neighbours Everton with a 1-0 Merseyside Derby win at Anfield. A superb goal from Curtis Jones gave the much changed Reds the victory over their fully loaded local rivals, condemning recently hired manager Carlo Ancelotti to his first defeat in charge. Coming in the midst of a busy run of fixtures, manager Jurgen Klopp elected to make a raft of personnel changes, with only James …
The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …
Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Typically, when a player as young as sixteen is standing out in senior football you can invariably bank on one of two things being immediately evident. Either: a) The kid has a natural physique well beyond his years or; b) He possesses absolutely electric pace. Yet, for all the acclaim that Harvey Elliott’s first team bow for the Reds has rightly drawn, neither of those things are reasons for the understandable wave of optimism surrounding his inaugural Liverpool performance. In …
Rotated Reds Reach Next Round

Rotated Reds Reach Next Round

Goals from James Milner and Ki-Jana Hoever saw Liverpool advance to the next round of the Carabao Cup, after a 2-0 victory over MK Dons. Jurgen Klopp made wholesale changes from the side that defeated Chelsea away in the Premier League on Sunday, handing debuts to three youth team products. Caoimhin Kelleher, Rhian Brewster and Harvey Elliot were all handed their Reds bow in a mix and matched team of youth and senior players in need of match sharpness from …

Player Ratings as Liverpool win a League Cup match!

Winning in the Milk/Carling/Carabao Cup, I'd honestly forgotten what it felt like. It's okay. That was great fun though, in honesty. Watching Liverpool go past MK Dons by two goals to nil as a handful of talents make their debuts isn't a bad way to spend a Wednesday evening, with James Milner also getting his yearly non-penalty goal to put a smile on faces of Ribena drinkers everywhere. Here are your ratings. Big saves from a young Irishman Caoimhin Kelleher …
The Youngsters Who Could Make The Breakthrough This Season

The Youngsters Who Could Make The Breakthrough This Season

Liverpool stood strong in the transfer market this summer, making just four signings, none of which are guaranteed first-team action in the near future. Jurgen Klopp has shown faith in the squad which won the Champions League last term, which could mean that he’s also ready to throw some youngsters into the mix. A number of Reds youngsters were given the opportunity to play during pre-season, and Wednesday’s Super Cup game against Chelsea saw the likes of Rhian Brewster, Harvey …
