Fulham 2 - 2 Liverpool: The Post Mortem

Jurgen Klopp is world class in every sense. His personality, his coaching style, his ability to evolve, his adoration of the wonderful support, and his affection towards his players. It is this last part which can often cause the odd mishap in his spectacular Liverpool reign. His loyalty to certain players is applauded by many, and there is obviously great pride in how he treats his players. Players that have felt the warm embrace of the big German would run …

Fulham 2-2 Liverpool - Observations from a disappointing opener for the Reds

Liverpool eked out a point at Craven Cottage against Fulham, with a performance that barely merited it, to open the new Premier League season. The Reds were far away from the level they need to be at, for a side with ambitions such as theirs, and sent out an immediate note of concern to Jurgen Klopp on the opening day. Aleksandar Mitrovic opened the scoring, rising above Trent Alexander-Arnold at the back-post, in a first-half where Fulham overwhelmed Klopp's side. …
Salah Salvages a Draw: Man of the Match

Salah Salvages a Draw: Man of the Match

Throughout the tightly contested league opener, Salah justified the widespread desire to keep him at the club for years to come. Without the three points, it's harder to relish an impressive display, but an assist and a goal was enough to salvage a point and perhaps catch the imagination of supporters wondering what the Egyptian King might bring to the new campaign. Luis Diaz looked the likeliest to grab headlines in the first half, but his left-footed effort that hit …

Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.0 He seemed unable to command his flank, with Fulham intent on creating a war zone whenever certain players were in possession. Was able to aid the forwards with the last goal, but …

Fulham v Liverpool - Time For The Reds To Overwhelm

As much as we all enjoyed the Manchester City win, the community shield stands as a glorified friendly that has little impact on the season. If Liverpool had lost that game, I would have dismissed all agendas towards its significance. But in victory, I happily welcome the plus points that may come in winning another trophy. Confidence was clearly brimming, and a good performance now stands them in good stead for the Premier Leagues opening weekend. Manchester City are clearly …
Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Who is Liverpool transfer target Fabio Carvalho?

Fabio Carvalho is set to stay with Fulham this month, but he could be a Liverpool player once this season comes to an end. Marco Silva doesn’t want to sell him, but his contract is almost up and the Reds are believed to be favourites for his signature.  So what is all the fuss about? Again, the first thing to flag here is that the sample size isn't the largest - just 1,150 minutes in the Championship. It makes him …

"Things aren't happening for us at the moment" - Liverpool midfield veteran tries to figure out reason for Reds slump

Liverpool's James Milner showed he is struggling as much as any of us to explain his team's current slump in form after another Anfield defeat. Fulham's Mario Lemina pounced just before half-time to drill a low shot beyond Alisson Becker and into the Liverpool net. It was the only goal of the game, giving Scott Parker's Cottagers a huge three points in their quest for Premier League survival. After the game, Milner was asked for his thoughts on where it …
