Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …

Rampant Reds Run Over Arsenal

Rampant Reds Run Over Arsenal

A clash between the Premier League’s remaining unbeaten teams turned into a one-sided affair with Liverpool taking all the spoils in comfortable fashion. From the onset, Arsenal clearly set out to avoid the recent beatings they have suffered at Anfield by sitting back on defence. They were happy to soak up pressure without giving Liverpool’s leading lights much room to operate or cause problems. This led to several crosses sent in from the flanks, with Andrew Robertson sliding in several …

Match Report: Salah, Mané, Liverpool Top Every Table

There’s a tradition in U.S. where high school (American) football teams will schedule Sister Mary’s School for the Blind for their homecoming weekend so they can show off a bit in front of their girlfriends before the big dance. This… was that. Where was Huddersfield Town in 2013/14? This is the match we wanted Crystal Palace to be. An already relegated side, H-Town capitulated faster than you could crack open your beer with Naby Keita scoring off of a pretty …

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal: Observations as Reds end year on a high

Liverpool do love to thrash Arsenal, don't they? Coming back from an early setback, yet another 5-1 win at Anfield ensured the Reds will end 2018 in the best possible way, stretching the lead at the top of the table to nine points. A sluggish start saw a series of wayward passes at the back, with Dejan Lovren needlessly surrendering possession in a dangerous area. Maitland Niles was on hand to slot in from close range after just eleven minutes, …

Another Composed Anfield Display As Liverpool Beat Fulham 2-0

Liverpool took advantage of a controversial fifteen seconds to beat Fulham 2-0 at Anfield and move back to the top of the Premier League ahead of games for Chelsea and Manchester City. Despite the ropey nature of the first half and the question marks around their first goal, Liverpool were able to kill the game in the second half and see off a pretty average Fulham side. The home side started the game well, with Trent Alexander-Arnold rampaging down the …
Home Comforts & The Anfield Factor

Home Comforts & The Anfield Factor

A few months ago, Liverpool had lost the League Cup final to Manchester City, on penalties, then a few days later they exacted a bittersweet 3-0 revenge upon Manchester City at Anfield. Arguably this illustrated Klopp's impressive ability to motivate his players, but when you consider that Liverpool played a weaker side in the latter of the Manchester City fixtures, and were utterly dominant, against a City team that still harboured beliefs of winning the title, only then do you …
