Gomez still requires patience from Liverpool supporters

Who else saw that coming last weekend then? Liverpool played out a Premier League classic against newly-promoted Leeds, getting their title defence off to an entertaining-but-unconvincing start at Anfield. Having not been able to watch the game first time around, I can confirm that following it on Twitter, while fellow supporters lost their minds, was not an experience to treasure. Don't ever do it.

Manchester City 4-0 Liverpool: Observations from a night to forget

Manchester City 4-0 Liverpool: Observations from a night to forget

For Liverpool, Thursday's trip to the Etihad peaked before it had even begun. The side who had come out on top last season in the most agonising circumstances were reduced to rolling out the red carpet for the most dominant champions in Premier League history as they took to the field. The final score was the consequence of defensive sloppiness and charitable finishing against City writ large. Psychologically, you could say Pep Guardiola's men have laid down a marker. Liverpool …
