Observations from Liverpool's win against Sunderland

Observations from Liverpool's win against Sunderland

Two consecutive 1-0 victories against Leicester and now Sunderland have seen Liverpool rise up to seventh in the table, level on points with Manchester United. The win on Wednesday night saw similarities to the win on boxing day; an unconvincing 1-0 victory. Benteke bagging the winner but missing a late sitter in both games, and the opposition sending their goalkeeper up for a corner in added time.

Re-Evaluating Season Goals for Klopp's Rampant Reds

Six games into Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool reign and it feels like I am supporting a different Liverpool. The same group of players have been transformed from underperforming disappointments to a versatile squad with competition in key positions.
