Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

It was arguably the most frustrating aspect of the irritating 1-1 draw with Napoli in the latest Champions League - Fabinho picking up a fairly serious ankle injury. The Brazilian midfield linchpin has been one of the standout performers for Liverpool since the mid-point of last season, and his influence on the side has grown so much so that he's arguably the first name on many fans' teamsheet. So seeing him hobble off after just 19 minutes against Napoli was …
Liverpool 2-1 Brighton: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Brighton: Who Was Man of the Match?

I’m getting mighty tired of these nail-biters. One regular day of Barclays, that’s all I ask for. Right now, it doesn’t look as if it will happen. Despite that, with Leicester still to play, the Reds are a massive 11 points clear at the top of the Premier League with 14 games played. Despite the best efforts of Alisson and Martin Atkinson, we held on to clinch another 3 points. It was a real moment of madness from our Brazilian …

Liverpool 2-1 Brighton: Player Ratings as Reds go 11 points clear

Someone needs to go tell these Liverpool players that it is possible to win games by a scoreline other than 2-1. It was, though, another massive win in the Premier League for the Reds, as Brighton were seen off at Anfield, thanks to Virgil van Dijk's first-half brace. Alisson Becker's red card and Lewis Dunk's goal made it a nervy final few minutes. Here's how each player fared Alisson Becker - 4/10 He made a couple of decent saves but …

Player ratings as Liverpool miss out against Napoli

Liverpool are left needing to do a job in Austria on Matchday Six after only managing a draw at home to Napoli on Wednesday evening. With Virgil van Dijk left on the floor, hurt in the centre of the pitch, Dejan Lovren was left to defend a two-on-one as Dries Mertens fired the Italian side ahead. Lovren was the one to pull the Reds level with a second-half header, that was all it to be though as Klopp's men failed …
Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Limp Liverpool Lament Lack of Creativity

Liverpool will have most likely have to win their matchday 6 trip to Salzburg in order to top their Champions League after being frustrated 1-1 by Napoli at Anfield tonight. A Dejan Lovren header from a corner equalised an early Dries Mertens strike, but Liverpool produced an atypically meek European home performance and missed a chance to win their group with a match to spare. Jurgen Klopp elected to make three changes from the victory over Crystal Palace, with Alex …
Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Crystal Palace 1-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

It’s another win for Jürgen Klopp’s seemingly unstoppable behemoth. Despite Mohamed Salah only fit enough to start from the bench, Liverpool managed to secure another three points, taking their total to 37 points, from a possible 39. The old adage about winning when not playing well has certainly seemed relevant to Liverpool since the start of the season, but Liverpool are close to riding out their luck. Despite winning 12 of their opening 13 league fixtures, Liverpool have been underwhelming …
