Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 0-0 Bayern Munich: Who was man of the match?

It may not have been another great European night Anfield, but it's hard for Liverpool fans to be too disappointed with a goalless draw against a Bayern Munich side who issued a reminder of their class. Aside from a rather frantic ten-minute spell just before the break, the Reds struggled to fashion out many openings against their cautious and regimented opponents, who executed their game-plan well. Importantly, though, there were relatively few nervous moments at the other end, even with …

Roberto Firmino is back in but Dejan Lovren has missed the cut ahead of Liverpool's huge Champions League tie with FC Bayern tonight.

Yesterday, Firmino had to train on his own as a precaution to prevent any potential spread of the virus he was suffering from. This morning, however, as reported by James Pearce in the Liverpool Echo, it seems that Firmino has fully …

Bobby Firmino: The man who defines a Liverpool performance

Bobby Firmino: The man who defines a Liverpool performance

"He was a player I thought was one of the best in the Bundesliga so, when I saw that Liverpool had signed him, I thought: 'How could Liverpool do this?" Those were the words of Jurgen Klopp back in 2016, as he gushed over the quality of Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian must have felt like a beautiful added bonus to Klopp when he had become Liverpool manager the previous year - a player tailor-made to flourish under the charismatic German. …

Liverpool coach Pep Lijnders lifts lid on tactical tweak in Reds forward line

Liverpool's assistant coach Pep Lijnders has revealed the thinking behind Mohamed Salah's more advanced role in The Reds' attack this season.

Liverpool’s two new, big money, acquisitions were expected to dominate the team sheet sooner or later, and the question of which of the remaining trio – Milner, Henderson or Wijnaldum – would fit the third midfield slot. Since then, that particular question has been rather emphatically answered …

Reports of Liverpool's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

So Liverpool have bottled the title eh? Well that was a crazy six days. The title was already won on Tuesday, back in the balance on Wednesday, and completely lost by Monday. What a week. All facetiousness aside, the change in media narrative after what was essentially two back to back below par performances from Liverpool has been absolutely massive. Waking up Wednesday morning, most people were ready to crown Liverpool champions after Man City lamely fell apart against Newcastle. …
A brief glimpse of Naby Keita's brilliance

A brief glimpse of Naby Keita's brilliance

I despised football when the final whistle blew at West Ham. More points dropped in the Premier League title race, but more worryingly a limp performance by Liverpool, who looked anything but a team trying to go five points clear at the top. In any normal season, a draw at West Ham in February would be no great disaster, but with Man City hunting the Reds down in their own relentless fashion, it felt like a defeat on the penultimate …
