Liverpool 2–0 Sheffield United: Player Ratings As Blades Broken At Anfield

Liverpool 2–0 Sheffield United: Player Ratings As Blades Broken At Anfield

Liverpool started 2020 in fine form with yet another win being in total control. The Blades have fared well this season, but rarely threatened and never looked like taking any spoils from Anfield. Liverpool’s stars showed their quality by asserting themselves at will at both ends of the pitch. Jurgen Klopp will surely be pleased as his men end the Christmas period with a perfect record. Alisson – 8 Liverpool’s Brazilian at the back hasn’t had a lot to do …
Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Healthy League Lead

Lustrous Liverpool Maintain Healthy League Lead

Liverpool maintained their 13 point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United at Anfield. Goals in each half from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane sufficed for the Reds in a performance of irrepressible control which saw them keep their fifth consecutive league clean sheet. James Milner was a late addition to the team, with Naby Keita injuring his groin in the warm up, but the alternation done nothing to slow the …
Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Liverpool will have most likely have to win their matchday 6 trip to Salzburg in order to top their Champions League after being frustrated 1-1 by Napoli at Anfield tonight. A Dejan Lovren header from a corner equalised an early Dries Mertens strike, but Liverpool produced an atypically meek European home performance and missed a chance to win their group with a match to spare. Jurgen Klopp elected to make three changes from the victory over Crystal Palace, with Alex …
Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Sterling has nobody to blame but himself...this time

Let's dispel a myth to begin with. The general consensus is that all Liverpool supporters detest Raheem Sterling, never forgiving him for the manner in which he left in 2015. That is well wide of the mark. I don't just speak for myself when I say I've got plenty of time for Sterling, even though he handled his exit badly after that depressing 2014/15 season. Not only a world-class footballer, the 24-year-old has done lots of good off the pitch …
What now for Joe Gomez?

What now for Joe Gomez?

It seems very strange to say now, but it’s been nearly a year since Joe Gomez was Liverpool’s first choice centre-back. The 22-year-old had well and truly established himself as Virgil Van Dijk’s partner by this time last season, and he started 12 of Liverpool’s first 15 Premier League games last season, as well as four of the Reds’ five Champions League group stage matches. He was still being used rotationally as a right-back to rest Trent Alexander-Arnold, but there …
The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …

Why can't you play like that every week, Dejan?

Why can't you play like that every week, Dejan?

I'm sure I wasn't the only one who grimaced, groaned, groaned and flailed when I heard that Dejan Lovren was starting on Saturday. Not only because... Well, he's Dejan Lovren, but because he was to come up against a striker in Jamie Vardy that has a brilliant goal scoring record against the Reds and has also given Lovren many torrid times over recent years. "Why not Joe Gomez?", I cried at the radio as I made my way towards Anfield. …
Liverpool Survive Scare in Anfield Goal Bonanza

Liverpool Survive Scare in Anfield Goal Bonanza

A Mohamed Salah brace and goals from Sadio Mané and Andrew Robertson saw Liverpool clinch a 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg in an Anfield goal bonanza. The defending champions raced into a three goal lead, thanks to goals from Mane, Robertson and Salah. But the Jesse Marsch coached Austrian side managed to claw the game back to 3-3 through goals from Hwang Hee Chan, Takumi Minamino and substitute Erling Haland. Salah broke the visitors hearts late on, however, with …
Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Joel Matip's impressive start to 2019/20

Liverpool’s win over Arsenal last weekend included several star performers in Jurgen Klopp’s side. Mo Salah was back to his very best as he scored two goals – one of which will be a contender for Goal of the Month, even if Sky Sports’ commentary failed to provide suitable audio commentary to the goal. Virgil van Dijk, Roberto Firmino and Fabinho all performed at the high standards we have come to expect over the last two seasons. Van Dijk was …
