Liverpool 3-2 PSG: One-Eyed Firmino Makes His Mark

Liverpool 3-2 PSG: One-Eyed Firmino Makes His Mark

It’d be wrong to suggest this isn’t one of the toughest groups of the competition; Napoli and PSG present two scintillating trips while Red Star Belgrade are hardly pushovers having won the Serbian league last season. Under the floodlights, bouncing to the tune of ‘Allez Allez Allez’, Liverpool stepped out prepped and ready for a new Champions League campaign with a collective sense of ‘bring it on’ rather than a fearful demeanour. There’s been nothing frenetic about Liverpool’s start to …
Liverpool 3-2 PSG: Player Ratings as Bobby dazzles Anfield late

Liverpool 3-2 PSG: Player Ratings as Bobby dazzles Anfield late

Liverpool made Anfield fret, but Liverpool had more late European drama at Anfield, as an injury time winner from Roberto Firmino gave the Reds a 3-2 win over Paris St. Germain and a winning start to their Champions League campaign. Daniel Sturridge's header and James Milner's penalty put the Reds on course, but Thomas Meunier pulled one back for the French champions before half-time. Kylian Mbappe looked to have recovered a point for PSG when he scored in the 83rd …
The Firmino 9

The Firmino 9

Roberto Firmino was the perfect the false 9, then Klopp's number 9 and now the Firmino 9. Has Bobby redefined the centre-forward position for Liverpool during Klopp's tenure? When Liverpool signed Firmino from Hoffenheim, he was known as a goal scoring attacking midfield. Under Rodgers, he played as a wide forward and didn't appear to be favoured by the manager, but the arrival of Klopp bought a clear and defined role for the Brazilian. Jurgen Klopp was a fan of …
Dominic Solanke - The Forgotten Cause

Dominic Solanke - The Forgotten Cause

Dom Solanke is yet to even be named in the matchday squad this season. Having not played a game of football since pre-season, in which he did not particularly impress, this is only going to hinder the progress of the former Chelsea player. In his debut season he managed to score one goal in 21 appearances, albeit most of them were coming on from the bench. In a way, the expectations placed on his head to come into games late …
Liverpool v PSG Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool v PSG Preview - Potential Key Battles

After a perfect start to the Premier League season, a confident Liverpool will get their UEFA Champions League campaign up and running, with a mouthwatering clash against French Champions Paris St. Germain at Anfield on Tuesday night. Liverpool are in what is perceived as one of the groups of death, so it is imperative that they get their campaign off to a positive start, in front of what will be a typically raucous European night crowd at Anfield. Jurgen Klopp …

The Details   Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Cuneyt Cakir (TUR) Date & Time - Tuesday, September 18th 2018 @ 20:00 BST Current Odds - Liverpool 23/20, Draw 14/5, PSG 2/1 Form Liverpool Form We are all so sick of hearing how this Liverpool team is not playing great but still managing to get the results they need. A great sign, of course. But how fantastic would it be for Klopp's men to just take the game by the scruff of the neck …
Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Integrating Fabinho and the Need for Patience

Patience isn’t a word that gets heeded much in the modern era of football. Instant gratification has been normalised and expected, and signings are often cast aside as “flops” in as short a space as six months. And that’s fine because some signings don’t work. But, if one casts their mind back to the final season of Brendan Rodgers’ tenure, you’ll notice that Liverpool’s current number nine was far from the maniacal presser and vital fulcrum that he would become …
Tough UCL Group Presents Tough Choices For Klopp

Tough UCL Group Presents Tough Choices For Klopp

Liverpool’s Champions League campaign kicks off on Tuesday, with the automatic qualification to the group stage giving the Reds some breathing room in the opening few weeks of the season to focus on the Premier League. The Group Stage draw didn't do Liverpool's Champions League odds any favours. In addition to an overmatched Red Star Belgrade, the Reds were placed with fellow title contender PSG and a dangerous Napoli side now led by Carlo Ancelotti. One of those three teams will be sorely …
Key Observations as Liverpool maintain their 100% record

Key Observations as Liverpool maintain their 100% record

Liverpool continued their winning record as they won the 5th game in a row to join Chelsea at the top of the table. This start is their best start in the league in over 25 years. The key observations are as follows: Liverpool pass their biggest test yet Liverpool came into the game with 100% record but more importantly looking to redeem themselves against Spurs at Wembley. This was the game last season where Liverpool were soundly beaten, yet kick-started …
Liverpool leave Spurs bewildered in London

Liverpool leave Spurs bewildered in London

Liverpool aren't technically top of the table, surpassed by Chelsea on goal difference as the sun goes down on this Premier League Saturday. The Reds are, however, undefeated, having only allowed two goals in five and eased past Spurs in London. Liverpool now have more away points against top-six opponents than they amassed in all of 2017/18. IN A NEW YORK MINUTE... OK, a London minute, but just a few seconds in we got a very good idea that everything …
