LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

Starters: Alisson - 8 Week after week we rely on him, and he does his job. Trossard’s finishing becomes his problem, but for conceding three in a home match, you can’t ask for much more from the Brazilian keeper. Trent - 5 Let's Trossard turn him for the opener, which matches the tone of the season thus far as the world-class right-back continues to be questioned in defensive situations. Looked more positive in attack, and maybe should've been through on …
Is it Bellingham or bust for Liverpool?

Is it Bellingham or bust for Liverpool?

Liverpool want Jude Bellingham.  Every man and their dog knows this. Throughout the summer months we’ve had journalists describe the type of midfielder the Reds are after in 2023 and it probably would’ve been easier just to mention him by name. It is clear that he is the player they have in mind. Then there is Henry Winter’s bizarre tweet from a few weeks back now when he said something along the lines of he cannot wait to see the …
Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

How To Replicate The Genius Thiago Brings

Steven Gerrard & Luis Suárez are Liverpool’s most notable legends of the recent past, and were players that were often relied upon to propel their respective team to greatness. Though Luis actually played with Stevie for the entirety of the Uruguayan's Anfield stay, Gerrard was at that point far from the powerhouse he once was. Luis became the talisman of his era, and nearly gifted Stevie the ultimate prize of Premier League glory. Gus Poyet once remarked how Liverpool would …
Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Liverpool v Bournemouth - A Changing Of The Guard

Jordan Henderson and James Milner need to be dropped, with clear limitations brought into their roles on the pitch. Neither can compete at the Premier League level anymore, and thus youth should be preferred whenever possible. It is not a targeted attack or misdirected opinion to state fact, and continuing poor performances do not lie. If circumstances dictate one of Milly or Hendo must start, then the other should only ever come into the game to replace the other. To …
Manchester United vs Liverpool - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Manchester United vs Liverpool - The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

Three games, two draws and a defeat, seven points dropped. The start to this season has gone from "less than ideal" to farcical. The Premier League fixture generator was very nice to Liverpool to begin the season. Let's not pretend otherwise. This was a straightforward start to the season for a team with title winning ambitions. Newly promoted Fulham, struggling to get players in the door. A Crystal Palace team who, while talented, had a mess of a pre-season due …
Liverpool FC & The Damning State Of Play

Liverpool FC & The Damning State Of Play

Being almost unsurprised by the defeat at Manchester United, kind of sums of where Liverpool FC are right now. Since the departure of Gini, they have simply let the standards of the midfield drop dramatically, and watching Monday's game only signified that the Reds are in need of new blood. The signing of Thiago two years ago is the only first team ready player signed since then, and is a damning reality that has really started to bite. Naby Keita …
Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Manchester United 2 - 1 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 5.0 Had an early scare, with the post coming to his aid. Could do little for the opening goal as United pulled the Reds backline apart. A great fingertip stop from Eriksen’s free kick stopped the home side doubling their lead. The second goal was a great strike, and though it would be harsh to judge him on the goals, he seemed hesitant and not his usual …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Crystal Palace

Two games, two draws, four points dropped. Liverpool's start to the 22/23 Premier League season has been less than ideal on and off the pitch. Performances have been well below what is required, the squad is short of quality in midfield and the injuries are mounting up. Liverpool have failed to win their first two Premier League games, with disappointing draws against newly-promoted Fulham and Crystal Palace. Hyperbole abounds, with some people already writing off the title this season and …
Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

Manchester United v Liverpool - Klopp Needs To Up His Own Game

If you had the chance to listen to the latest edition of ‘Rate, Don’t Hate’ podcast on the Anfield Index, you’ll know that I’m all for some form of shake-up within this current Liverpool team. As it stands, the injury crisis is alarming, and will make certain decisions a necessity when the times comes to picking the eleven for next Monday evening. What we do know is that Darwin will be joining that injury list for the next few weeks, …
