Player Ratings as Liverpool Beat Norwich 4-1

Liverpool kicked off the 2019/20 Premier League season with a 4-1 win over newly-promoted Norwich. A bit of the old Liverpool came out with some very dodgy moments defensively, but, fortunately, the attack was at its scintillating best and was extremely clinical in the first half. There’s some work to be done for Jurgen Klopp’s men as you would expect a better side to punish us more with the chances afforded to the Canaries. However, the biggest cause for concern …

Gini Wijnaldum recognises the need for Liverpool to win from the off

Liverpool midfielder Gini Wijnaldum knows that The Reds must start their Premier League season off with a win on Friday against Norwich City. For a second consecutive campaign, it looks like Jurgen Klopp's side will be the main challengers to Pep Guardiola's Manchester City title-winning team. Liverpool accumulated a record 97 points last season but still had to watch on as City lifted the title on the final day with 98 points. City managed 100 points in 2017/18 and 98 …
Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City - Observations as City nick Community Shield

Liverpool 1-1 Manchester City - Observations as City nick Community Shield

It was the stereotypical game of two halves at Wembley Stadium, as Liverpool came out second best after a penalty shootout, that saw 9 out of 10 penalties hit the back of the net. Unfortunately, Gini Wijnaldum was the unlucky one, and the Reds had to be content with what you could possibly call a moral victory, but I'm sure Jurgen Klopp and the players would've rather had the silverware to show for it. City took the lead after questionable …
Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

Match Report: City Triumph in Wembley Shootout over Liverpool

A Gabriel Jesus penalty condemned Liverpool to a 5-4 penalty shoot-out defeat to Manchester City at Wembley. Goals from Raheem Sterling and Joel Matip saw normal time finish 1-1 in an entertaining game, but one in which Liverpool could justifiably think that Lady Luck evaded them. In the second half, in particular, Liverpool -- with Mohamed Salah to the fore --  peppered Manchester City's goal with shots, but a combination of the goal frame, Kyle Walker acrobatics and Claudio Bravo …

Player Ratings as Liverpool Lose Community Shield on Penalties

Liverpool concluded their pre-season preparations with a penalty shootout defeat to reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in the Community Shield. After a poor first-half performance, the Reds looked by far the better team in the second and probably deserved to come away with the “trophy”. Liverpool fans should be optimistic about the season ahead after this one with many players yet to hit full fitness and Sadio Mane still to return. Alisson: 6 Unlucky with the Sterling goal. Had …

Why another loan makes sense for Marko Grujic

When you’re in the 22-24-year age bracket as a footballer, you come to a crossroads. No longer a youth player able to bide your time and develop at a steady pace, there’s a growing awareness that the clock is ticking - you either cut it or you don’t. Where consecutive loan spells would usually spell trouble for such players - see Ryan Kent and Harry Wilson, both of whom face uncertain futures at Anfield with a reduced hope of ultimately …

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

Madrid Can Be Mane’s Defining Moment

The legendary 4-0 win over Barcelona will be remembered for so many reasons by Liverpool supporters. The impact of Divock Origi and Gini Wijnaldum will rightly be at the top of the list when the game is looked back on in decades to come, following their heroic double apiece. Similarly, Trent Alexander-Arnold’s outrageous assist for Origi’s tie-clinching strike will go down in legend for its audacity and speed of thought. Alisson’s expertise in the Reds goal helped keep his side …
Liverpool's Redemption Song

Liverpool's Redemption Song

In the immediate aftermath of Liverpool’s heartbreaking defeat to Real Madrid in last year’s Champions League Final, Reds around the world could be forgiven if they were downbeat and disappointed. Liverpool had reignited its love affair with the Champions League in spectacular fashion, beating Porto, Manchester City, and Roma on the way to the Final in their first time back in the competition since 2009, only to see their dreams crushed in cruel fashion. Yet, while many supporters’ heads may …
