How To Take On The Domestic Cups This Year

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 …
Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

Who Are Liverpool’s Premier League Competitors This Year

For the last few years, Manchester City would be the early season team compared to Liverpool in the Premier League title race. This early season looks like a one horse race (Arsenal will inevitably fall away), and the Reds currently languish within mid table mediocrity, though thankfully not as lowly as their blue neighbours, just yet anyway. Manchester City are the club with huge domestic success during Klopp’s Anfield stay, but this could now be the moment where City have …
Tony Evans: Why Liverpool’s rivals are on a path to self-destruction

Tony Evans: Why Liverpool’s rivals are on a path to self-destruction

Another week in the life of Liverpool. Some places exist in a perpetual state of newsiness. Anfield is one of them. The win over Manchester City was uplifting but events off the field were dispiriting. The behaviour of City fans was reprehensible but their club’s response was even worse. The reaction from the Etihad was appalling. A sane club would have unequivocally condemned the Heysel and Hillsborough chants and the graffiti. For a senior executive to ramp up the tension …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool vs Manchester City

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly From Liverpool vs Manchester City

It only took until the ninth Premier League game of the season but Liverpool appeared to finally wake up and realise that pre-season ended months ago and the season was underway. Having begun the weekend in 11th position, and dropped to 12th after results before their game kicked off, Liverpool found themselves in the bottom half of the table for the first time under Jurgen Klopp. The last time the Reds were in the bottom half of the Premier League …

Liverpool 1 - 0 Manchester City - PL Player Ratings

Liverpool 1 - 0 Manchester City - PL Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 9.0 Immense when needed, thoroughly dominated his box, and showed superb reactions to set Salah free. He’s been a rock this year,. The low one handed save wars critical and he showed why he’s the worlds best. James Milner - 9.0 A brilliant performance, and one which was needed. He stood up to Foden and didn’t allow him space or time to play. Was always a willing …
Liverpool 3 - 1 Manchester City - The Man Of The Match

Liverpool 3 - 1 Manchester City - The Man Of The Match

Thiago Alcantara One of the best midfielders to ever grace the game, and he was on another level once again yesterday. His control of tempo and space is unparalleled, with everyone now willing to work to his pace. When the game required possession, Thiago reacted. When the game required a game-breaking pass, Thiago reacted. His decision making is beyond anyone else’s, and it must be a delight to be an attacker and see Alcantara on the ball. Off the ball …
Liverpool v Man City - The First Hurdle

Liverpool v Man City - The First Hurdle

We all know that the community shield is little more than a glorified friendly, but when two particular sides collide, sometimes it brings a little more needle and attention. Not since the days of Fergie’s Manchester United & Arsene’s Arsenal, have we seen such a long running duel between two English domestic sides. City are without doubt the recent victors overall, but Liverpool remain that relentless element in their side. The on going transfer window has seen both sides evolve …

Man City won the title last year, …
Rage Against The Machine

Rage Against The Machine

Revenge is a dish best served cold, supposedly. Well this Saturday evening represents an opportunity for this Liverpool side to take out their obvious frustrations on Real Madrid, who await them in this season’s Champions League Final. The last final meeting was devastating, and memories clearly still linger with key members of the Reds' squad. Throughout the entirety of last weekend's final league game, I did everything I could to avoid actually sitting and watching the match. With the eventual …
One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

One Last Steven Gerrard Assist

This coming Sunday marks potentially the most important day in Liverpool's season, certainly until the following weekend. The Reds' campaign has been littered with pivotal games, vital weeks, and must win scenarios. This is where the Anfield giants now sit within the hierarchy of all things football, and long may it continue. Nothing less than a Reds win at Anfield (against Wolves) will suffice this Sunday. To have any chance of clinching the title, three points must be achieved in …
