Aston Villa 1 - 2 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Luis Diaz Low key good performance, in a tough contest. The minutes are mounting, and fatigue is starting to show. Diaz had really good moments, and was brilliant in his delivery for Mane’s goal. He was perhaps less incisive from the right, but he stretched the play and still looked to run defenders at every opportunity …

Observations: Heroes and Villans

Liverpool made it through a very chaotic game to manage a 2-1 victory against Aston Villa, but it was far from easy. This was incredibly stressful watching, and it started right from the off. Jurgen Klopp will be very irritated by the manner in which the game began, however, as the Reds conceded after just 3 minutes. In the build-up to the goal, Ollie Watkins was clearly offside, but the assistant didn't flag it and play continued. About a minute …

Alisson Becker - 7.0 A frenetic start saw Liverpool go behind, and Ali could probably have done little more to stop it. Nearly gifted an open goal, with an amazing pass into Watkins early on. Had little else to do in the second half as the Reds controlled, but was alert to stop Ings late on. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Showed good defensive awareness, as Villa looked to exploit the wide areas. His dangerous delivery started to explore the Villa …

Liverpool 1 - 1 Tottenham - Man Of The Match

Luis Diaz A wonderfully technical player, his skill set in possession was simply superb at times. His tenacious nature grew through the first half, as neat possession started to grow into brilliant penetration. The first half was a frustration for the reds, but it was clear that Diaz would be relied upon to keep the home side ticking along. He got his goal to level proceedings, after another roaming dribble inside. The luck off the deflected effort couldn’t hide the …

Observations: Hard Work for The Reds against solid Spurs.

Let's address the issue on everyone's minds first. With only 1 point gained against Tottenham, Liverpool are now 3 points behind Manchester City if they won their game in hand. This means Jurgen Klopp and his boys now need City to lose a game rather than just draw. This makes it less likely, but it still can turn on a single result. Fingers crossed then. With that covered, onto the game itself. The most striking thing from this game was …

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The monster keeper started in this clinical game, with his brilliance most required. A couple of good early stops saw him start brightly. Could do nothing for the opening goal, as the away side calved open the reds backline. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 7.0 Back into the league line up after a rest against Newcastle. He had an early sighter that flew over, and a few good deliveries in a possession heavy opening period. Was called to …
Luis Diaz: Another extraordinary singing by Liverpool

Luis Diaz: Another extraordinary singing by Liverpool

It seems that the Liverpool stables have the most impressive talent of the season with Salah, Mané and Jota making up the front trio. But there’s a new top-class player that the squad have added to their line-up. A 25-year old Colombian winger by the name of Luis Diaz. Signed from Porto for an initial fee of £37m, Diaz might just be the best singing of the 21-22 season in the Premier League. Luis Diaz’s Liverpool contract The contract signed …

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match

Villarreal 2 - 3 Liverpool - Man Of The Match Luis Diaz He changed the game, and is still pushing to become Liverpools most important forward. He came on after an horrendous first half, and forced the Spanish back line to stretch as he hugged the far touchline. He threatened and threatened, and finally got his goal with a well taken header. What a signing this man had been, and he was able to relax a stressed fanbase …

Alisson Becker - 7.5 The most assured pair of gloves in football, and with no fault for Villarreal’s first half goals, made one brilliant one on one stop. Became a spectator until Liverpool scored, which was a welcome sight. Had very little from there to deal with. Trent Alexander-Arnold - 6.5 After given a much needed breather at the weekend, the playmaking fullback came back in for Joe Gomez. He looked shaky, and unsure of how to play the ball …

Observations: The Reds celebrate Jurgen's new contract with a win

Today Liverpool were the calmest ones in the room. Many fans will have been increasingly nervous as the seconds ticked by and the scoreline stayed at just 1-0, but despite a few misplaced passes, the Reds stayed as calm as you like, defended the space, and gave up nothing to see out the win. Newcastle had a measly 4 shots in the game, all of which were from considerable distance and didn't give Alisson much trouble. Joe Gomez, rotated in …
