Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens) - Player Ratings as Mini Mentality Monsters advance in League Cup

Well, where do we start? Arsenal scored five goals at Anfield. Liverpool had a bunch of kids and a few experienced men on the pitch. This should never have ended like it did for the Gunners, but it was a tribute to the mentality Jurgen Klopp has built at this club. Liverpool's mentality these days just does not allow them to give up, and it was an outstanding finish to what can only be described as a mad night at …
League Cup To Provide Liverpool Squad Players Big Chances

League Cup To Provide Liverpool Squad Players Big Chances

Let's face it, as fans priorities go the League Cup -- especially for a club like Liverpool -- is at the bottom of the pile. Ask any Reds supporter what they'd most like to win, the consensus, among 99% of those asked, would be the Premier League. Then, after the Champions League, the F.A. Cup and the Club World Cup, you'll find the *insert sponsor name* Cup. However, as the season enters a key phase for the European Champions you …
What makes English wonderkid so special?

What makes English wonderkid so special?

There have been countless false dawns at Liverpool. Players tipped for greatness who ultimately fail to live up to the hype and fade into obscurity. Even those who do carve out a successful career in football regularly reach the heights promised. Suso is turning out for AC Milan, he’s been linked with Spurs and Barcelona but moves failed to materialise and he still calls the San Siro home. The Italian side are European royalty but they’re in decline.  Krisztián Németh …
Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Harvey Elliott is Missing Something...

Typically, when a player as young as sixteen is standing out in senior football you can invariably bank on one of two things being immediately evident. Either: a) The kid has a natural physique well beyond his years or; b) He possesses absolutely electric pace. Yet, for all the acclaim that Harvey Elliott’s first team bow for the Reds has rightly drawn, neither of those things are reasons for the understandable wave of optimism surrounding his inaugural Liverpool performance. In …
Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days: The period where Klopp's squad will be acutely assessed

Six games, 18 days. Forget the 100 per cent start to the new league season, this is the period where the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's squad will be put through the wringer. The European champions will barely have an opportunity to breathe once the team are reunited following the international break and the return to club football. Questions were raised over the manager's decision to not dip into the transfer market for fresh ammunition, and this will be the period …
Liverpool 3 Lyon 1 | Reds back to winning ways before City test

Liverpool 3 Lyon 1 | Reds back to winning ways before City test

Liverpool concluded their pre-season programme with a 3-1 victory over Lyon in Geneva. Goals from Roberto Firmino, a Joachim Andersen own goal and Harry Wilson gave the Reds their first victory in four pre-season games after they had fallen behind to an early Memphis Depay penalty. Jurgen Klopp surprised many with the experimental nature of line up, with Adam Lallana deepest of a midfield three with Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri. Mohamed Salah, Alisson Becker and Firmino also started, just …
