Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool are top of the Premier League after a late spell of ruthless brilliance shattered Cardiff's hopes of stealing a point at Anfield. The Reds' dominance levels in the first half were nigh-on historic as they enjoyed around 85% of the ball but, while there was some neat interplay, Mohamed Salah's opener proved the only shot on target in the first 45. It was a scrappy, frustrating start to the 2nd half, but a moment of pure quality Sadio Mané …

Liverpool 4-0 Red Star: Who was man of the match?

After nervously scraping past Huddersfield at the weekend, a reinvigorated Liverpool were able to turn on in the style in a convincing, thoroughly enjoyable 4-0 win against the largely helpless Red Star. The Reds were slow out of the blocks, but as soon as Roberto Firmino fired home the opener they began to ooze confidence, repeatedly slicing through their opponents with some encouragingly fluid attacking football. Mohamed Salah's brace, followed by Sadio Mane's fourth, redemption for an unconverted penalty, completed …
Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Liverpool 0-0 Man City: Who was the Man of the Match?

Riyad Mahrez's late penalty miss has left Liverpool fans pondering whether their side's goalless draw with Manchester City represents a point gained or two points dropped. On the one hand, the Reds could be thankful that they were not punished for what was an uninspiring performance, bereft of the anticipated vigour, but on the other, it seems that a potentially crucial opportunity has been missed, with City expected to hoover up the points elsewhere. Liverpool flew out of the blocks …

Player Ratings as Liverpool and City draw a blank

Far from the frenetic games we saw between these two last season, this was a pretty dull affair with Liverpool and Manchester City both locking horns in a goalless draw. There was drama, such as Riyad Mahrez's late penalty which was as successful as when Phil Jones steps up to the spot, alongside chances for Mohamed Salah that would've been comfortably buried last season, but there was an overriding lack of golden opportunities for either team. Here are the player …
Liverpool 4-0 West Ham: Man of the Match

Liverpool 4-0 West Ham: Man of the Match

After showing some fantastic ambition in the transfer market, Liverpool have at last assembled the tools for a fully-fledged title fight. Optimism levels at Anfield are at their highest in recent history, but in their season opener against West Ham, the Reds did not look like they were bearing the burden of expectation. Instead, they lived up to the hype. On paper, Sadio Mane was the star of the show. Last year belonged to Mohamed Salah, but today the man …
Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Man of the Match

Liverpool 4-0 Brighton: Man of the Match

It was close to a perfect afternoon for Champions League final-bound Liverpool on Sunday as they emphatically sealed a top-four spot with a 4-0 demolition of Brighton. A string of sloppy domestic displays meant the top-four race was still just about alive at kick-off, but the defensively-assured and offensively-magnificent Reds soon put their qualification beyond any doubt. Whilst Mohamed Salah put the gloss on a record-breaking campaign by securing the golden boot and Dominic Solanke responded to mounting criticism with …
