Manchester United 3-2 Liverpool: Observations as Fernandes downs improved Reds

Defeat at Old Trafford, but at last reason to be optimistic. Going forward, Liverpool started to tick again. Having been benched in midweek, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino responded commendably. Salah was the finisher and Firmino the architect as the Reds scored twice at Old Trafford for the first time since 2014. This time, they were undone by defensive errors and an admittedly magnificent winning goal from Bruno Fernandes. But they travel to Spurs with something to build on. The …

Will this be Liverpool's starting eleven to face Manchester United on Sunday?

Liverpool travel to face Manchester United in the FA Cup on Sunday. We've had a look at Jürgen Klopp's likely starting lineup. This game is likely to see a much-changed first eleven for both sides as they try to juggle their domestic duties without risking injury to any vital first-team players. Liverpool are still without Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Diogo Jota, Kostas Tsimikas and Naby Keïta. Joël Matip is fit again but it's very unlikely he will be risked …

Is it too much to ask for a domestic cup run?

Is it too much to ask for a domestic cup run?

Liverpool's defeat on penalties to Arsenal in the Carabao Cup brought to an end another run in domestic cup competitions for the Reds under Jurgen Klopp. In what was a harsh reflection on the side, Divock Origi and Harry Wilson saw their penalties saved by Bernd Leno as Arsenal progressed to the quarter-finals. The result was not a fair reflection on the game, with Liverpool by far the better side - but they failed to take their chances and were …

Liverpool must learn from lessons past to overcome current blip

Liverpool's defeat to Chelsea in the FA Cup was their third in four games in all competitions, creating their first real drop in form all season. While this is by no means a crisis, it is reason for Klopp and his team to sit up and take note as to what's going on in order to put the results right.
