Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

I know this is the Burnley match report, but do we really have to stop talking about the derby? Pickford... Origi... man, that was great. Klopp was forced into two changes for mid-week and made a five more just for the hell of it. Moreno and Origi started due to injury worries for Robertson and Mané respectively. Henderson and Milner started because Brexit means Brexit. And finally, Keita, Shaqiri and Sturridge started because… this is Burnley away and Klopp is …

Player Ratings As Much Changed Liverpool Fight Back In Style

Jurgen Klopp made an array of changes for Liverpool's midweek trip to Burnley, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all out of the starting eleven while Divock Origi was rewarded for his last-gasp winner against Everton at the weekend. Cork's opening goal for the home side put the Reds on the back foot, from which it looked incredibly hard to fight back and earn three points to keep up pressure on Manchester City. However, a mixture of sheer …

Appreciating Liverpool's Future Captain

Remember when people said that £75 million was an exorbitant fee? Liverpool have gone from a notoriously shaky defence, one which is able to instil fear into even the most resilient of Liverpool fans when they conceded a corner, to one which instils fear into event the sharpest of strikers. And a lot of Liverpool’s surge to European force is down to the arrival of the most expensive defender in world football. It wasn’t typically Liverpool’s way to fork out …
Liverpool and the International Break: A Diary Of Nothing

Liverpool and the International Break: A Diary Of Nothing

Two weeks without a Liverpool game. Two whole weeks. It’s Day 8 and I’m really struggling. International breaks can be a necessary evil—you have to qualify for the World Cup or European Championship after all and those games have to be played at some point—but do we really have to have so many? What are we meant to do with our weekends when the other lads are off wearing someone else’s kit? I can barely countenance the idea of having …

How Fabinho Set the Template for Liverpool's Midfield

Liverpool’s 4-1 victory over Cardiff has sparked cause for optimism among its fanbase, not just because it’s the first time Liverpool have put four past an opposition this season – a feat that becomes something of a hobby for Klopp’s team last term. No, it was also momentous for the full Premier League debut of Fabinho, who arrived from Monaco in the summer for around £40 million and has been noticeable in his absence during the opening months of the …
Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

P.H.E.W. That was painful, even infuriating at times, but in the end, Liverpool came away with a 1-0 win against Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium to stay joint-top of the Premier League. Mo Salah's 24th-minute goal, set up by Xherdan Shaqiri, was enough for Klopp's men to win on an evening where their opponents were industrious, but often just not good enough to break open what was a rather fragile rearguard. Klopp surprised everyone from the off, as both …

Player ratings as Liverpool limp past Huddersfield

Mohamed Salah's first half strike didn't stop it being a Saturday to forget, but did ensure Liverpool claimed all three points in Yorkshire. Without a win this season, Huddersfield came determined to spring an upset and will feel they deserved at least a point as they often worried a Liverpool side devoid of organisation and rhythm. Jonathan Hogg struck the woodwork with a 25-yard rocket shortly after Salah had scored to go closest for Huddersfield, who were shut out by …
Are Liverpool Becoming Boring?

Are Liverpool Becoming Boring?

MANCHESTER, England: The walls were closing in on Jose Mourinho’s tenure at Manchester United as a hugely unfancied Newcastle side, managed by (one of) the Portuguese’s biggest rivals visited Old Trafford, to try and seal the 3-time Premier League champion (as he is constantly reminding us) managers fate. The history of bad blood between the pair dates back 14 years when Jose was in the Blue of Chelsea and Rafa in the Red of Liverpool. A time when defensive football …
Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Riyad Mahrez's late penalty miss has left Liverpool fans pondering whether their side's goalless draw with Manchester City represents a point gained or two points dropped. On the one hand, the Reds could be thankful that they were not punished for what was an uninspiring performance, bereft of the anticipated vigour, but on the other, it seems that a potentially crucial opportunity has been missed, with City expected to hoover up the points elsewhere. Liverpool flew out of the blocks …
Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City: Mahrez miss costs Citizens rare Anfield win

Liverpool 0-0 Manchester City: Mahrez miss costs Citizens rare Anfield win

Liverpool kept their unbeaten Premier League start intact, just, as Riyad Mahrez's late penalty miss cost Manchester City the chance for a first league win at Anfield since 2003. A stalemate was the last thing expected between the country's two finest teams, but a mutual respect between Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola saw chances few and far between as the two teams suffocated each other in possession. City had the better of the chances, culminating in Virgil van Dijk's challenge …
