Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Who was Man of the Match?

A pretty comfortable 3-1 victory over Arsenal. A result we’ve come to expect over the last few years at Anfield against the Gunners. There were some impressive performances all over the pitch for the Reds as we go top of the table with the only 100% record in the Premier League. Starting at the back, Trent Alexander-Arnold looked pretty good both defensively and offensively. His crosses weren’t quite at the incredible standard we know he’s capable of, but he provided …
Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: Who was Man of the Match?

Southampton 1-2 Liverpool: Who was Man of the Match?

It was a game that every Liverpool fan knew was going to be a struggle. Not only was it an away match against a solid Southampton side, but with the 120 minutes played in midweek added to that, 3 points was looking a difficult ask. The front three were going to have to work their magic and dig us out of a hole, and, thankfully, they did just that - despite Adrian’s best efforts to throw it all away late …
Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

Man City 1 Liverpool 1 - Community Shield: Who Was Man Of The Match?

With the Community Shield – a match part-preseason friendly, part-trophy competition – you can construct any narrative you want. You can easily overreact to the result: If you win, it’s laying down a marker to start the season; if you lose, it shows you’re not ready to make a serious title challenge. You can also dump a big bucket of cold water on the results: If you win, it doesn’t mean much; if you lose, the side just hasn’t hit …
Porto 1-4 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

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

On a night where the eyes of many Reds fans understandably drifted onto the remarkable events at the Etihad Stadium, proceedings at the Estadio do Dragao were rather predictable. Porto, buoyed by their fervent support, flew out of the blocks and made the Reds sweat with a mass of half-chances. But once Jurgen Klopp's side rode out the tense opening 20 minutes, things calmed down. The visitors clinically dispatched their chances when they came, coasting to a comfortable victory and …
Man of the Match as Liverpool dispatch Chelsea 2-0

Man of the Match as Liverpool dispatch Chelsea 2-0

As Jordan Henderson moves seamlessly from defensive midfield to a more advanced role, I look to do similar by taking up the 'Man of the Match' element of this week's post-match work, rotating my 'Virgil Van Dijk (8): What a lovely beard he has' player rating duties to the lovely Aaditya Narayan. And what a game to pick just one player from! The Reds fight another day in the title race with a 2-0 win over Chelsea, quickfire second-half strikes …
Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Liverpool 2 Porto 0 - Man Of The Match: Say Hello To My Little Friend

Jurgen Klopp is bringing out a secret weapon at the business end of the season that every opposing manager sorta knew that he had, but he wasn’t using it, so maybe there was a problem with it… who knows. Point is, Southampton and Porto walk in the door and Klopp says, “say hello to my little friend!” The little friend being one, Naby Keita, who is literally quite small, but he is capable of mowing down the opposition like Tony …
Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Southampton 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

It was unconvincing, it was last-ditch, it was downright exhausting, but crucially for Liverpool, it was victory. They are back on top of the Premier League with their rivals' fixtures about to get significantly tougher. The performance, it has to be said, wasn't good. But Liverpool won this game thanks to a big call from their manager and a big moment from a big player. The Reds seem to be in a 'win by whatever means necessary mode', and so …
Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Who was Man of the Match as Reds stayed alive in title race?

Liverpool 2-1 Tottenham Hotspur: Who was Man of the Match as Reds stayed alive in title race?

And, breathe! How did Liverpool win that one? Why did Liverpool win that one? Ah no, we're not going to go there. By hook or by crook, Liverpool won! They beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 at Anfield to keep themselves firmly lodged in the Premier League title race, and putting the ball in the Manchester City court, ahead of their game against Cardiff City in midweek. How they did it, no one knows. The start was superb, it was controlled, it …
Bayern 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Bayern 1-3 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool fans can dare to dream of a double after watching their team ruthlessly dispatch Bayern Munich and march into the quarterfinals of the Champions League. Though the Reds were disjointed at times, a combination of quality and killer instinct was enough to secure one of their most impressive victories of the season. Bayern, who almost always figure in this last four of the competition, were rebuffed with relative ease. After failing to muster a single shot in the target …
