Player Ratings as Liverpool makes it five from five against Spurs

Player Ratings as Liverpool makes it five from five against Spurs

Last season saw Liverpool’s visit to Wembley bring about one of their worst performances. Riddled with individual errors and defensive ineptitude, Spurs were able to beat the Reds at their own game and put down a marker of how far Klopp still had to take his side. Yet, it was a role reversal on Saturday afternoon as Liverpool made it five wins from five, confirming their place at the top of the Premier League table. In truth, it should have …
Gini Wijnaldum - Liverpool's New No.5

Gini Wijnaldum - Liverpool's New No.5

Naby Keita, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Fabinho and Gini Wijnaldum. Seven midfielders, all of whom are justified in thinking themselves worthy of a starting position in the Liverpool line-up. Had you asked many fans which of the above would be looking for a club over the summer, the betting would suggest Lallana and Wijnaldum? Not that they’re bad players, merely that Liverpool’s purchases have significantly improved the squad and it would be hard to see where …

Reds Keep It Clean, Blanking Brighton 1-0

Reds Keep It Clean, Blanking Brighton 1-0

Another match, another battle, another clean sheet. On first observation, this one looked to have come with quite a bit more effort than the previous two; Palace and West Ham. After City dropped two points to Wolves, this match took on massive importance. Liverpool will need to get used to playing with the pressure of being the frontrunner if they want to keep supporters dreaming of a Premier League title. UNCHANGED AND UNBROKEN Jurgen Klopp kept the lineup unchanged, despite …

Liverpool 1-0 Brighton: Player Ratings from a nervy Anfield evening

Liverpool 1-0 Brighton: Player Ratings from a nervy Anfield evening

Liverpool made it three Premier League wins in three games with a 1-0 win over Brighton at Anfield. A well-worked move was finished off by Mo Salah midway through the first half, and the Reds saw off the rest of the game with that lead intact. It was a game that meandered between uninspiring and downright boring, but for Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool, the biggest takeaway will be that they got three points out of that game - which is …
Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool - Man of the Match

Crystal Palace 0-2 Liverpool - Man of the Match

After blowing West Ham on opening weekend, Liverpool won in a different, and more satisfying way against Crystal Palace under the lights at Selhurst Park. The Reds' performance oozed control and composure virtually from start to finish. There was never any hint of panic as they chipped away in the first half until James Milner rolled home a penalty on the stroke of the interval, and even before Sadio Mané sealed the win at the death the three points seemed safe. …
Time For Gini Wijnaldum To Be Unleashed

Time For Gini Wijnaldum To Be Unleashed

Remember the player we all thought we were getting when Gini Wijnaldum signed for Liverpool two years ago? It was a transfer that came out of left field, with the Dutchman rarely linked with a move before becoming the seventh permanent signing of Jurgen Klopp's reign. Wijnaldum had blown hot and cold at Newcastle United, with some Magpies fans critical of his limp, almost disinterested performances away from St James' Park, but his attacking quality was undeniable. During the one …
Observations from Liverpool 3-1 Torino: A great ghost and an old problem

Observations from Liverpool 3-1 Torino: A great ghost and an old problem

Liverpool wrapped up their preseason slate in a match marking the Anfield debut for Alisson, Fabinho, Keita and Shaqiri. Alisson allowed his first goal while Fabinho made a surprise appearance at centre-back. Keita had a largely unremarkable evening, while Shaqiri came on at the break and helped put the punctuation mark on the night with his beautifully lofted cross for Sturridge’s header to make it 3-1. Despite another convincing performance five sleeps before the season opener there were some intriguing …
