Under The Radar Liverpool Back Among The Elite

Under The Radar Liverpool Back Among The Elite

I wrote after Liverpool won comfortably at the Allianz Arena that the fact that nobody considered an impressive away win, and one of Liverpool’s most accomplished away European performances in years, arguably their best in a decade, as a big deal just demonstrates how far this Liverpool side has come. And here we are, another round of the Champions League has passed us by, and Liverpool are still in the competition, and comfortably so. There’s no doubt that Liverpool’s 4-1 …

Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - …

Roberto Firmino - Stepping Up At The Right Time

Roberto Firmino - Stepping Up At The Right Time

Over the international break, I wrote this article about Roberto Firmino. At the time, Bobby had played just three games since returning from injury, an injury which saw Liverpool draw two of the three games that he was largely missing from, the 0-0s against Everton and United that saw Bobby feature for just half an hour in each, and Liverpool look toothless. But since the Everton game, Bobby has returned to the team fit and firing, and Liverpool have won …

Liverpool 2-0 Porto: Reds on course for Champions League semi-final

Rarely do you see a Champions League quarter-final look so routine. There wasn't the rip-roaring freneticism of an emphatic win, nor a compilation of keepy-ups from Mohamed Salah to be played back for the rest of time this time round as there was in Portugal last year, but Liverpool once again took control over their opponents on a relatively straight forward night at Anfield. Rewarded with his second successive start in midfield, Naby Keita's effort inside just five minutes made …

Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky, lucky Liverpool eh? Comments about all the circumstances in which luck has favoured the Reds this season are out in force after their late goal against Spurs, courtesy of Hugo Lloris punching the ball onto the back of Toby Alderweireld, and there are a lot of frustrated opposition fans, as well as journalists, keen to jump on the Reds’ lucky streak.
