Liverpool 2 - 0 Leicester - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 2 - 0 Leicester - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.5 Back after international duty, and a good stop early on from Maddison. Was fairly routine after that till the break. Rarely called into action in the second break, but was in command throughout. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 A little loose with a pass early on presented a chance for Maddison, but recovered to sting the keepers hand with a smart left footed shot. A nice corner to find Virgil created the first goal, as frustration …
Brendan Rodgers - More Than That Documentary

Brendan Rodgers - More Than That Documentary

Understanding the rise, fall & resurrection of Brendan Rodgers is a story in itself. From his days under the initial Jose regime at Chelsea (as youth team coach) along with Andre Villas Boas & Steve Clarke, to his current position overachieving at Leicester, the road has been bumpy to say the least. Much can be made of his path to this point, with all the twists and turns to arrive here. It is his spell as Liverpool’s manager that can …
Liverpool's battle to save their season starts now

Liverpool's battle to save their season starts now

So, a trophy-less season it is then. Liverpool's Champions League dream ended in all-too-predictable fashion on Wednesday night, with poor finishing yet again proving fatal against Real Madrid. While much of the focus has understandably been on the Reds' centre-back woes, with Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip all absent, their struggles in the final third have been just as problematic. It is hard to be too critical of Mo Salah during a season in which he has …
Anfield auditions for Kabak and Davies must start now for move to make sense

Anfield auditions for Kabak and Davies must start now for move to make sense

Another day, another injury concern. It all feels a bit like groundhog day for Liverpool and seeing players on the treatment table this season. Jurgen Klopp today announced that Fabinho will be sidelined for the upcoming trip to Leicester with a small muscle issue. This leaves Liverpool with none of their 'recognised' centre back options from the start of the season left fit for the trip to the King Power. I say this with no disrespect intended towards Nat Phillips …
Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Man City. Now what?

Liverpool are nine points clear of Manchester City and eight points clear at the top of the Premier League going into the November international break. This piece is going to mostly be about where the hell the Reds go from here, and look at some of the maths now that such a lead has been carved out, but first it’s worth a brief reflection of how they got here. The game will be covered in better detail elsewhere so I …
100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

100% Liverpool Writing Their Own Script

Liverpool notched their 8th straight Premier League win of the season, their 17th in a row total and moved eight points clear at the top of the league with a late penalty against Leicester. There was a sense of palatable relief as James Milner stepped up in the 95th minute to down Leicester and give Liverpool the three points. It was not a day where Liverpool deserved to drop points, but it increasingly looked like a day where they would. …

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Fabinho & Henderson stand tall on the biggest stage

Who else is still bouncing? Who else can’t think about anything apart from THAT game? Who else wouldn’t change this Liverpool team for the world? Tuesday night is seconded only to Istanbul for me, in terms of drama, passion and emotion, on a night that genuinely felt flat in my mind before kick-off. This time they really weren’t going to turn it around, were they? That Vincent Kompany stunner against Leicester had only further dampened spirits, following an extremely harsh …
Under-appreciated Trent Becoming A Key Player For Klopp

Under-appreciated Trent Becoming A Key Player For Klopp

A lot has been made of the fact that Joe Gomez has been out injured for Liverpool this season – and the impact that that has on Liverpool’s defence. But comparatively, not as much has been made of the impact of losing Trent Alexander-Arnold for a period of time – with Trent missing six of Liverpool’s last eleven games through two injuries and making his return as a sub against Bournemouth. So how much impact does Trent have on the …
Reports of Liverpool's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

Reports of Liverpool's Demise Are Greatly Exaggerated

So Liverpool have bottled the title eh? Well that was a crazy six days. The title was already won on Tuesday, back in the balance on Wednesday, and completely lost by Monday. What a week. All facetiousness aside, the change in media narrative after what was essentially two back to back below par performances from Liverpool has been absolutely massive. Waking up Wednesday morning, most people were ready to crown Liverpool champions after Man City lamely fell apart against Newcastle. …
