Salah Salvages a Draw: Man of the Match

Throughout the tightly contested league opener, Salah justified the widespread desire to keep him at the club for years to come.

Luis Diaz looked the likeliest to grab headlines in the first half, but his left-footed effort that hit …

Thiago Alcantara One of the best midfielders to ever grace the game, and he was on another level once again yesterday.

Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Man of the Match

Luis Diaz This could well have gone to Ibrahima Konate, if not for the mistake and brief period of poor play at the start of the second half. The man of the match must however go to a player that was at times unplayable, and perhaps the man that has decided the tie. Luis Diaz worked relentlessly, drove with a fierce intent, and was a constant out ball for Trent. A great piece of movement and assist for the second …

Liverpool 1 - 0 West Ham - Man of the Match Andy Robertson The Scot was on hand to nullify two glorious opportunities for West Ham, with Jarrod Bowen and Michail Antonio shots blocked at close range. In a performance where his crossing was probably not at its best, Robbo’s defensive display and energy on the flank was to be admired. In a game that became very tight and anxious, the West Ham breaks were a troublesome reality, that really …
Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

The dreaded Wednesday night/Saturday lunchtime turnaround. Crystal Palace away. No victories on the road since September. The top scorer starting on the bench. A lethargic performance was surely in the offing. But no. Liverpool dismantled Crystal Palace in a fashion that was almost laughable. Symbolic redemption for their humiliation at Villa Park, this victory moves them six points clear of the pack (for 24 hours at least). Never has the outlook been more ominous for this season's challengers. Let's reflect …
