Liverpool 0 - 0 Everton - Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 9.0 Both keepers came away with plenty of praise, and kept the clean sheets intact for each opposing side. Ali was big, and made some key saves to ensure Liverpool stayed in the hunt for victory. His importance is critical, but perhaps a little worrying how reliant we were. Man of the match. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 5.0 His form is a major concern, and perhaps an indication that he simply isn’t enjoying life in defence anymore. His …

Observations: Siege Warfare

Divock Origi absolutely loves playing Everton. I'm sure you'll hear that in every article about this game, but it's worth saying anyway. There is no-one better at coming up with the goods at the perfect moment, in the hour of direst need. It seems very likely that Origi will be leaving Liverpool at the end of this season, but if that is to be the case, what a way to say goodbye. Liverpool beat Everton by 2 goals to 0 …

Liverpool 2 - 0 Everton - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 As solid as he needed to be, without much to actually do. Nice antics at the end, and never really looked overly fazed by the odd Everton half chance. Trent Alexander-Arnold 6.5 Seemed run by emotion, and caught in too many half spaces that allowed the Ev that odd break. Was tough and problematic to break them down, and he looked rushed and angry when control was needed. He’s still 23 and world class, and these …
Klopp vs Lampard

Klopp vs Lampard

Jürgen Klopp is one of the most respected managers in world football. Many fans of rival clubs surely admire the personality and performance of the charismatic German. In world football there are maybe three or four world-class managers, and Klopp is certainly one of those. To make an enemy of Jürgen Klopp is often detrimental, but to rile Jürgen Klopp with silly antics is still quite common. In the recent past, managers such as Chris Wilder, Sean Dyche, Mikel Arteta, …
A Goodison Park Dream

A Goodison Park Dream

I remember (many, many years ago), spending entire days playing Championship Manager. It would have been at least 25 years ago, where I would spend entire summer holidays managing teams, and searching for players to sign. Often times I would be the Liverpool manager, but here and there I would mix up my club of choice. AC Milan, with the likes of Maldini, Albertini, Weah and Zvonimir Boban were a particular favourite. Atalanta were a fun side, PSV rings a …

Everton 1 - 4 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Wasn’t at fault for Grays goal, and showed good use of the ball. Not his busiest evening (in terms of shots saved), and commanded when is required. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 Possibly could have swept tighter for the goal, but the all in all, a solid game. Good progression of the ball, if not entirely brilliant in a sometimes frantic game. His standards are high, and his importance not in doubt. Andy Robertson - 8.0 …
Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Rafa to Everton: Is it really that bad?

Seeing Rafa Benitez holding an Everton scarf above his head was a surreal moment. Did any of us ever think we'd see the day? It is one of the most controversial appointments for some time and is sure to send shockwaves across Merseyside and beyond. Having been an adored figure at Liverpool between 2004 and 2010, we are now going to have to witness Benitez trying to work his magic across Stanley Park. It's fair to say Everton fans have …
Why Liverpool Fans Need To Kabak Ozan

Why Liverpool Fans Need To Kabak Ozan

Let's call a spade a spade: Ozan Kabak's opening two appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool have been nothing short of disastrous. In his debut, the Reds ruined a good performance and a 1-0 lead going into the final minutes of the game and eventually lost 3-1 to Leicester City, a defeat that could have big ramifications on the race for Champions League football.  The Turk was at fault for at least two goals. First, he got his communicational …
Klopp admits to feeling

Klopp admits to feeling "a lot" of hurt after Anfield derby defeat

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp could not hide his disappointment after his side's Merseyside derby defeat against Everton on Saturday evening. An early goal from Richarlison gave The Toffees the lead before a late Gylfi Sigurðsson penalty sealed the win for Carlo Ancelotti's side. It was Everton's first derby win in almost 11 years and their first success at Anfield since September 1999. After going almost four years without a league defeat at home, Liverpool have now lost four consecutive league …
Laboured Liverpool Fall To Anfield Defeat To Everton

Laboured Liverpool Fall To Anfield Defeat To Everton

Liverpool fell to their first Anfield Merseyside derby league defeat to Everton since 1999 after a 2-0 reversal against their neighbours. The loss means the defending champions have now lost four home league games on the spin. Goals from Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurðsson condemned the Reds to defeat after an insipid, lifeless performance from the hosts. Injuries and VAR controversy -- the two banes of Liverpool's season -- reared their ugly heads again with Jordan Henderson being forced off with …
