How To Take On The Domestic Cups This Year

Liverpool's first game back after the World Cup is in not the Premier League, but the 4th round EFL tie against Manchester City. This game will represent the ideal tune up to the Reds' Boxing Day visit to Villa Park, and getting Pep Guardiola’s side in the last 16 is the perfect draw for Jurgen Klopp. Apart from Erling Haaland and a few squad players, most of the Etihad roster is spending this next month at the World Cup. The …
The Kids (Some) are Alright!

The Kids (Some) are Alright!

It maybe apt that we are focusing on ‘the who’ specifically (maybe one for the dads there), but there was plenty to digest on the back of Liverpool’s third round passage in the Carabao Cup against Derby. Jurgen Klopp utilised the entire spectrum of his squad with experienced internationals, squad players, youth talents and those unseen on this stage before. Excitement and forgiveness are two unique traits that are naturally afforded to youngsters seen as ‘coming through’ and that was …

Liverpool 0 - 0 Derby County - EFL Cup Player Ratings

Starting XI Caoimhin Kelleher - 8.0 Was a bystander for much of the first half, with just a dodgy back pass by his captain causing issue in the opening 45 mins. Was called into action more in the second half, but was very assured in his work. Calvin Ramsey - 8.0 Was solid through the first half, looking strong and energetic. Had a couple of efforts in that opening period, which showed the confidence of the young Scot. Was again …
Liverpool 0 - 0 Derby County - EFL Cup Man Of The Match

Liverpool 0 - 0 Derby County - EFL Cup Man Of The Match

Liverpool 0 - 0 Derby County - EFL Cup Man Of The Match Calvin Ramsey Showed really good drive and strength on his first start. A brilliant engine, coupled with great decisions on and off the ball. Never seemed fazed by the atmosphere, and linked up really well with the forward players. Even had a couple of efforts on goal. A player that can only improve with time, and may be one that really benefits from a loan move. …

Old Skool: Tremendous Trebles, and is the Quadruple Even Possible?

With the international break upon us, Gags and Dave got together to discuss the final few weeks of the season - and asked the question on everyone's lips: Can we win the quadruple? The first talking point was a look back at how far Liverpool have come since the end of Rodgers' tenure in charge. Then, of course, there was a detailed look into the state of play now - and how we've slowly developed into one of the best …

Under Pressure: Pressing Monsters & Penalty Analytics

It was a double header on the Under Pressure show this week, and although they touched on the incredibly impressive performance last week against Leeds (eight big chances and six goals) the main focus was on the first trophy of the season: Liverpool are League Cup champions. First up was the key pressing story from the match - and more importantly the differing contrast with the fixture at the turn of the new year at Stamford Bridge. Furthermore there was …

Molby On The Spot: Kepa's Karma & Kelleher's Winner

Liverpool, after such an eventful campaign during the tournament - especially when they were two goals down to Leicester at Anfield - didn't expect all of that drama to be eclipsed in the final against Chelsea. Remarkably, despite the scoreline, you will struggle to see a match with more twists and turns! At one point, this all got a bit too much for Molby on the Spot host Trev Downey. Regardless of the events during the match, including disallowed goals …

Player Ratings as Reds are crowned League Cup Champions

We all need to catch our breaths after that Carabao Cup final. After an absolutely amazing 120 minutes ended 0-0, Kepa Arrizabalaga blazed the 22nd penalty of an incredible shootout over the bar, to give Jurgen Klopp his first domestic cup as manager of Liverpool. It was an even game throughout with both goalkeepers excelling in regulation time, and in extra time. It was scarcely believable that 120 minutes couldn't produce a goal. What followed was also scarcely believable penalty …
