Spurs 1-2 Liverpool: Man of the Match

Spurs 1-2 Liverpool: Man of the Match

A late Tottenham Hotspur goal made for an unnecessarily nervy finish at Wembley, but the eventual 2-1 scoreline certainly belied Liverpool's dominance. The Reds were, for the most part, in control against one of the best teams in the Premier League. They were able to repel Spurs' relatively rare attacks and sliced open an oft-revered defence repeatedly. At 2-0, there was a period of superb game-management which saw the match very nearly grind to a halt. Only a combination of wastefulness …

Key Stats from Spurs 1 Liverpool 2 - Five from Five

Liverpool did enough to see off Spurs 2-1 in an exciting game at Wembley. But what were the key stats from Liverpool’s fifth win in five league games? Spurs’ Defence Falls Apart Liverpool ended up scoring twice, with both goals contributed to by shocking goalkeeping errors. But it could and should have been more for the Reds but for poor play in the final third. Their expected goals was 2.98, with three big chances. Admittedly this is skewed by Bobby’s …
Player Ratings as Liverpool makes it five from five against Spurs

Player Ratings as Liverpool makes it five from five against Spurs

Last season saw Liverpool’s visit to Wembley bring about one of their worst performances. Riddled with individual errors and defensive ineptitude, Spurs were able to beat the Reds at their own game and put down a marker of how far Klopp still had to take his side. Yet, it was a role reversal on Saturday afternoon as Liverpool made it five wins from five, confirming their place at the top of the Premier League table. In truth, it should have …
The Truth About Mohamed Salah’s “Poor” Start to the Season

The Truth About Mohamed Salah’s “Poor” Start to the Season

After a long and drawn out transfer saga last summer, Mo Salah joined the Reds with much optimism surrounding the Egyptian’s arrival, but no one could predict what would happen as the season unfolded. He managed a record-breaking 32 goals in the Premier League alone, unsurprisingly winning the Golden Boot, as well as claiming the PFA player of the year award. After such a fantastic debut season, the spotlight is well and truly on the forward. As a whole, the …
Pressure on Klopp to Rotate Liverpool's Starting Eleven

Pressure on Klopp to Rotate Liverpool's Starting Eleven

Having made just one change to his Liverpool side in the opening four games, continuity in selection will soon have to change for Jurgen Klopp. The Reds have only been playing one game a week up until now which enabled Klopp to name an unchanged side for the first three league games. Jordan Henderson replaced Naby Keita away at Leicester to mark the only change to the team up until now. However, with European nights on the horizon, the German …
Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Sometimes a relationship blows up and both parties end up locked in a contest to show the other what they could have had. The last time Liverpool faced Spurs in London the Reds were thoroughly and unmercifully dumped. Since that painful day, the main source of the drama, Dejan Lovren has been buried, resurrected and replaced. The man taking over for him was the right back on that October afternoon, Joe Gomez. Simon Mignolet was the man in goal, was …

Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles

At long last, the international break is over. English club football is back this weekend, and how! For the lunchtime kick-off on Saturday, Liverpool will travel to Wembley Stadium to play Tottenham Hotspur, on what should have been the day of the unveiling of Spurs' new stadium. Memories of last season's visit to the national stadium, or any visit there since April 2012 are terrible, but the Reds won four in four before the break, and now head into a massive …
Why Liverpool’s Trip To Tottenham Feels Pivotal

Why Liverpool’s Trip To Tottenham Feels Pivotal

Liverpool head to Wembley to face Tottenham on Saturday lunchtime top of the Premier League and with maximum points on the board. Just one goal has been conceded, nine have been scored and Jurgen Klopp’s likeable bunch of merry men are on an early title march. It may only be the middle of September, and Saturday’s outcome will not end up defining the entire season, but it feels pivotal, nonetheless. The eventual result is clearly the most important thing, but …

Scouting Adrien Rabiot: PSG's Smooth Operator

Liverpool are currently four from four in the Premier League and preparing for the commencement of their Champions League campaign; arming themselves to toil in a group that includes Red Star Belgrade, Napoli and the French Champions Paris St. Germain. But one of the French giants' star midfielders could well be on his way to Anfield – and that’s not referring to PSG’s trip to the Champions League finalists next Tuesday. According to reputable French journalist Julien Laurens, writing for …
