Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Red Relationships and Lilywhite Hearts

Sometimes a relationship blows up and both parties end up locked in a contest to show the other what they could have had. The last time Liverpool faced Spurs in London the Reds were thoroughly and unmercifully dumped. Since that painful day, the main source of the drama, Dejan Lovren has been buried, resurrected and replaced. The man taking over for him was the right back on that October afternoon, Joe Gomez. Simon Mignolet was the man in goal, was …
Joe Gomez's Road From Injury to First-Team Regular

Joe Gomez's Road From Injury to First-Team Regular

From injury hell to being shoehorned in at right-back in Trent Alexander-Arnold's absence to staring centre-back alongside Virgil van Dijk, it's been quite the ride for Joe Gomez. It takes a hell of a lot of mental strength to overcome a cruciate ligament injury. Sitting on the sidelines for such a long period of time, watching countless opportunities pass you by has a huge phycological impact on even the best players. Add to that an Achilles injury just months after …
Liverpool - No Longer a One-man Team

Liverpool - No Longer a One-man Team

Back in January, Liverpool allowed one it's most prized assets, Phillipe Coutinho, to leave the club. At the time, fans wouldn't have been laughed at if they were worried, going into the business end of the season. However, the Reds kicked on, and as a collective reached the Champions League final for the first time since 2007. Mo Salah received plenty of plaudits for his performances last season, and rightfully so, but even with the Egyptian star leading the line, …
Liverpool Fans - Enjoy the Ride!

Liverpool Fans - Enjoy the Ride!

We are four games into the season and have accumulated 12 points from a possible 12 points, yet the doom and gloom merchants are out in force, criticising Jurgen Klopp’s team selection, his use of substitutions, his timing of substitutions etc. Liverpool had played their first three games of the season with the same starting eleven. In the third game of the season against Brighton Liverpool looked leggy during the game. It was perhaps understandable why Liverpool had started that …
Leicester 1-2 Liverpool: Man of the Match

Leicester 1-2 Liverpool: Man of the Match

We're only four games into the season but already a familiar narrative has taken hold in the post-match reaction to Liverpool's victories. Once again, the Reds were far from their best - the furthest from their best they have been, in fact - but they managed to pick up three points, to hold on under pressure, to find a way to win. Liverpool's defence has started the season in encouragingly impressive fashion but it looked shaky at times against the Foxes. …
Leicester City 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds win four in four

Leicester City 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds win four in four

Alisson Becker gave Liverpool heart-attacks with a moment of madness in the second half to gift Leicester a goal, but first-half goals from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino were enough for the Reds to see off a brave Leicester fightback to gain another three points, with a fourth consecutive Premier League win to start the season. Here's how each player performed. Alisson Becker - 4/10 The rating is that low only because of one moment. He shouldn't have done that. …
Is Van Dijk's defence capable of underpinning a title challenge?

Is Van Dijk's defence capable of underpinning a title challenge?

Liverpool’s £75m capture of Virgil van Dijk made him the most expensive defender in the world. Of course, eyebrows were raised left, right and centre given the size of such an investment; a good defender for Southampton but one worthy of such an outlay? Outsiders weren’t particularly convinced. Fast forward to the present and the critics have gone eerily quiet as it appears one man can indeed fix a defence. A third successive clean sheet of the season in the …
Three On The Trot! - Key Stats from Liverpool 1-0 Brighton

Three On The Trot! - Key Stats from Liverpool 1-0 Brighton

Liverpool went back to the top of the Premier League with a tense but richly deserved 1-0 win over a stubborn Brighton side at Anfield. But what were the key stats from the Reds’ third win – and third clean sheet – in three games? De-Fence, De-Fence Did I mention the three clean sheets in three games? Yes okay, the Reds did that in 13/14 and went on to concede 50 goals that year, but this year we look like …
Reds Keep It Clean, Blanking Brighton 1-0

Reds Keep It Clean, Blanking Brighton 1-0

Another match, another battle, another clean sheet. On first observation, this one looked to have come with quite a bit more effort than the previous two; Palace and West Ham. After City dropped two points to Wolves, this match took on massive importance. Liverpool will need to get used to playing with the pressure of being the frontrunner if they want to keep supporters dreaming of a Premier League title. UNCHANGED AND UNBROKEN Jurgen Klopp kept the lineup unchanged, despite …
Key Observations As Liverpool Eke Out Another Win

Key Observations As Liverpool Eke Out Another Win

Liverpool maintained their 100% win rate as they overcame a dogged Brighton side to win by the odd goal. Liverpool had their chances but were not in their best rhythm as they struggled to convert those chances into goals. Brighton were solid for most part of the game and should not be disheartened by the result considering their recent record against Liverpool. The key observations from today's game are as follows: The luxury of consistency Klopp for the third game …
