Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Aston Villa 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

I’ll be honest with you all – I turned my Chinese stream off a couple of minutes before Robertson’s equaliser. I didn’t think it was worth the constant flicking between grainy, lag-ridden pictures just to see us lose. How wrong I was. This team just never gives up and despite Jon Moss and Martin Atkinson’s best efforts, the Reds find a way to dig out yet another win. It wasn’t the best of performances, but let’s have a look at …
Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 5-5 Arsenal (5-4 pens): Who was man of the match?

It may only have been a League Cup Round of 16 tie, but this will go down as a classic. Liverpool's youth contingent, above all local lad Curtis Jones, will remember for it for the rest of their still-nascent careers. Twice in this match Liverpool were dealt hammerblows - falling 4-2 behind in catastrophic fashion before Joe Willock's wondergoal threatened to render their valiant comeback meaningless. But evidently the relentlessness, the unwavering belief which characterises the first-team is pervasive. Virtually …
Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Man Utd 1-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

That was a bit rubbish, wasn’t it? 1-1 feels like an acceptable result after the first 85 minutes of that game. We also had to contend with one of the worst refereeing performances you are ever likely to see from the pathetic Martin Atkinson. The man, if you can even extend that description to whatever subhuman species he actually is, was an absolute disgrace for the entirety of the match and deserves to be immediately relieved of his duties. Enough …
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 …
