Discussion: The Rival Player I'd Have at Liverpool

Discussion: The Rival Player I'd Have at Liverpool

Personally, I love a hypothetical within the realms of football. They allow one to examine the possibilities and justify why their selection would be viable. Of course, these hypotheticals can border on the edges of insanity, almost irrelevance i.e. Which footballer would be able to the most kick-ups with a live chicken? (probably Leo Messi). However, some are cause for intrigue. Recently I was posed with a rather thought-provoking hypothetical, the answer to which would have been utterly disparate had …
Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

Liverpool Need to Take Advantage of World Cup Hangovers

The Premier League season starts in just a few days. And the spectre of the World Cup still hangs over the Premier League’s top six. This was a World Cup in which the Premier League’s top teams all had plenty of players not just participating but going the distance – and certain teams will benefit from that. Liverpool need to be one of the beneficiaries. It’s expected that Roberto Firmino and his Brazilian teammate Alisson Becker will start against West …
Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Don't Panic... Liverpool WILL Secure a Top-Four Finish

Wasn’t that Chelsea defeat an appalling watch on every level? After the meteoric high of reaching the Champions League final later this month, the entire game felt like a drag more than anything. The sun was shining, with beer gardens, beaches and parks with our names all over them, but we had to watch the Reds battle their way through a lifeless performance. This was all to be expected of course, with the effort levels in Rome last week taking …

Liverpool 4 - 0 Arsenal: The Reds' Unstoppable Attack

Liverpool continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season with an impressive 4-0 victory over Arsenal at Anfield on Sunday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp made two changes to the side which beat Hoffenheim on Wednesday evening and secured a place in the Champions League group stages. Simon Mignolet was mysteriously left out of the squad, while Loris Karius made his first start in goal since December 2016. Trent Alexander-Arnold was also left out of the side as Joe Gomez and …

Liverpool 3 Arsenal 1 - Player Ratings

The Robin Hoods of English football are back. Liverpool were well-deserved 3-1 winners at Anfield against an Arsenal side who fought back after the break following what was an abject first half from them. Goals from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane gave the Reds a 2-0 lead and Gini Wijnaldum sealed the win for the Reds after Danny Welbeck pulled it back to 2-1 to send the nerves jangling. Here's how each player fared. Simon Mignolet - 6.5 He had precious …
Daniel Sturridge - The Phantom Menace

Daniel Sturridge - The Phantom Menace

Liverpool 3-3 Arsenal: a pulsating match; end to end, with chances galore; a "great advert for the Premier League". All these English football cliches, and more, could've been, and were, used to reflect on Liverpool's latest home match, under the floodlights at Anfield on Wednesday evening. A crackling pre-game atmosphere was pitched up several notches when Roberto Firmino pounced on Cech's parry to slam the Reds into an early lead. Three goals followed in what was a thunderous first half, …

Arsenal v Liverpool Preview | Predicted Line-ups & Facts

Six points in six, Liverpool stand near the top of the table two fixtures into the new season. Admittedly, the level of competition has ranged from mid-table to newly-promoted for the Reds. The narrative of the campaign so far, however, is top teams struggling against weaker opposition. Arsenal can, of course, count themselves among that group, having a mediocre 1-0-1 start to 2015. Skating past Palace after a 2-0 defeat to the Hammers is much less than a stellar start. …
