Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

It was unconvincing, it was last-ditch, it was downright exhausting, but crucially for Liverpool, it was victory. They are back on top of the Premier League with their rivals' fixtures about to get significantly tougher. The performance, it has to be said, wasn't good. But Liverpool won this game thanks to a big call from their manager and a big moment from a big player. The Reds seem to be in a 'win by whatever means necessary mode', and so …
Joel Matip insists teammate Virgil van Dijk's mere presence raises the performance levels of others

Joel Matip insists teammate Virgil van Dijk's mere presence raises the performance levels of others

Liverpool's Joel Matip has been singing the praises of The Reds' colossal Dutch centre-half Virgil van Dijk. Matip has recovered well from a fractured collarbone in early December to start all of Liverpool's previous 12 games in all competitions. Jurgen Klopp will not have missed the importance of Matip's availability in light of the injuries to Dejan Lovren and Joe Gomez, also in December. Gomez and VanDijk was Klopp's first-choice partnership at the back after a hugely impressive first four …

Liverpool vs Southampton Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool kept the pressure on Manchester City with a last-gasp winner against Spurs, and in doing so secured a win in arguably their most difficult remaining league game. However, next up is a different kind of test against a Southampton side scrapping for points any way they can, and the Reds don’t have a great record at St Mary’s, winning just one of their last four, although that win was last season. So what are the key battles ahead of …
Liverpool still are in the hunt as 3 points are secured against Spurs

Liverpool still are in the hunt as 3 points are secured against Spurs

It was a rather windy day at Anfield, but no wind could have competed against 50000 people exhaling a sigh of relief right at the end as Liverpool secured three points in rather fortuitous circumstances. As they say, it doesn't matter how they come, till they come. The key observations from the game are as follows. That midfield is no longer surprising A big game against a top 6 opposition means fans usually crave for a dominant midfield (both in …
Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

Triumph of the Understudies at Liverpool

It was only a few days ago that Liverpool fans bore witness to another one of Jürgen Klopp’s most repeated sentiments – “I don’t need to spend anything, I’ve got all that I need.”
“I don’t want to talk exactly what we will do, but I don't think this is a team at the moment where we have to spend the big money or whatever. "The best way to do it is bring together a group of players, try …
Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Observations as Liverpool deliver European masterclass

Liverpool romped to a 3-1 win at the Allianz Arena to secure their place in the Champions League quarter-final stages, the fourth English club to achieve such a feat. Having struggled to recreate the kind of form witnessed in Europe last season, this was a return to the best of the best, with Jurgen Klopp's side fending off another European heavyweight with relative ease. Cunning on the counter-attack and defensively solid, there were few holes to a performance that will …
Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

Match Report: Liverpool march on in Munich

In the days leading up to the match, all of the talk was about Naby Keita’s lack of playing time and then his reported injury. Then the line-up card came out and it was lacking the other midfield addition, sending Liverpool supporters into meltdown. Even the captain was upset that he got picked ahead of Fabinho, apparently. With a Henderson, Milner, Wijnaldum midfield everyone expected us to come out pressing our arse off, but a collision with that colossus, James …

VIRGIL VAN DIJK. THE NUMBER 69. SAY NO MORE. No, no. I promised Gags I'd have a week off from the Virgil van Sex God references, so let's talk about how good the Reds are / were / will continue to be instead. Going to the Allianz Arena and coming away with a 3-1 win despite looking in third gear all night is evidence of the unit Jurgen Klopp has put together. Into the Champions League quarter finals with a …
Joel Matip Can Stay | On Consistency and Squad Depth in the Premier League

Joel Matip Can Stay | On Consistency and Squad Depth in the Premier League

During Wednesday’s 5-0 victory against Watford, there was a moment that could’ve easily changed the course of the match for Liverpool had Joel Matip not stepped in front of Troy Deeney at the last moment Simple, yet effective A Gerard Deulofeu low cross whipped in towards the penalty spot meant Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson needed a saviour, and the usual suspects for the task couldn’t have been available for it. Deulofeu received the ball inside Andy Robertson at left-back, which forced …
