Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - Man Of The Match

Thiago Alcantara The master orchestrater and controller of the Reds' midfield. He wanted the ball in any and every situation, and United could do nothing to stop him. His first half display was sensational, with the game both quickened and slowed to meet his desire. A moment in the first half saw him win the ball on half way, like a prime Mascherano. His overall okay was near faultless, and there was even recognition from the commentators. To enjoy this …
Put Some Respect On Klopp’s Name

Put Some Respect On Klopp’s Name

I tend to only glance at social media these days, essentially if I’m checking on team sheets, injuries and transfer gossip. If I like a story, I’ll tend to believe it, and if I don’t, it must surely be false. I wrote the following words on Sunday morning, and was happy to later hear Dave Hendrick state the very same thoughts on the latest edition of RAW. I could have deleted and rerouted my words, but I think the thoughts …
Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Man Of The Match

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Man Of The Match

Bobby Firmino A man loved by the Reds' support, the players, and most importantly the manager. His work rate was impressive, and his goals a lovely sight. With so much talent in the Reds' forward options, Bobby can still have his high moments. Showed tremendous intelligence in his pressing, and movement off the ball. Two very well taken goals, and could be a starter more and more as the reds hunt more glory …

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Always great to see his commanding presence on big nights at Anfield. Would have been relieved to see a brilliant chipped goal by Nunez chalked off for offside. 31 minutes saw a clinical finish fly past him, as Benfica drove on. His handling was assured, as Benfica started to test from wide positions after the break. Was unlucky in the one-on-one for Benfica’s second goal. The melee at the end couldn’t dampen the occasion. Joe Gomez …
The Back Up Boys

The Back Up Boys

With only a handful of games left in the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup this season, Liverpool now (more than ever) need to utilise the full depth of their squad. After watching Manchester City glide into red territory time and time again this past Sunday, the end result has to be seen as a positive. To head to the Etihad and hold out for vital point, needs to be taken as a good result, all things considered. Forget …
RAW: Hapless Henderson & Sloppy Set Pieces

RAW: Hapless Henderson & Sloppy Set Pieces

It was billed as the title decider between the best two football teams on the planet. A chance to expand the lead over Liverpool for Man City, or an opportunity for the Reds to go clear at the top of the table. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor Downey was joined by Jim Boardman and Dave Hendrick to look back at the 2-2 draw with the Citizens at the Ethiad. First up is Dave, who wasn't pleased with elements of the side …
Manchester City 2 - 2 Liverpool - The Man of the Match

Manchester City 2 - 2 Liverpool - The Man of the Match

Thiago Alcantara The Spanish midfield maestro was at times brilliant today, as well as offering some Paul Scholes type challenges. His touch, vision, and ability to control the games tempo is sometimes astounding. In a game that kept shifting up multiple gears, he always seemed calm and assured on the ball, and demanded his football throughout. The challenges could have seen an early bath for sure, but his intensity to stand up to such a great team was there to …

Manchester City 2 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Made a superb early stop on Sterling, before a cruel deflection made De Bruyne’s opening goal unreachable. Was kept busy, and again could do little for the goal from Jesus. Had good moments where his positional sense was vital. Trent Alexander-Arnold 7.0 A nervy start was extinguished by a lovely opening assist for Jota. Stood up so well to continuous threats, and was a willing taker of the ball. An average game by all accounts, which …
Under Pressure: Salah's Contract & Premier League vs Champions League

Under Pressure: Salah's Contract & Premier League vs Champions League

It's a topic that, seemingly, will run and run into the summer and maybe even next season. On the eve of the biggest game of the season away against Manchester City, and with Salah himself saying there can be no distractions for the whole team during this crucial period, the Mo Salah contract situation won't be sorted anytime soon. On Under Pressure, during the international break, the original 'A' Team got together to present both sides of the debate, using …
Operation Man City

Operation Man City

So Liverpool took total control of their Champions League last eight tie with Benfica, whilst Manchester City crept over the line against Atletico Madrid. Both teams won, that is fact, yet the second leg for each will be offering much different scenarios for their respective managers. Liverpool have delved into full rotation mode, essentially since the turn of the year. City were 14 points clear, and it’s apparent that a post AFCON game planned was ushered in (by Klopp) to …
