Liverpool Slip Up Again - Liverpool 0-0 Everton

Liverpool’s grip on the Premier League title loosened again, as their fourth draw in six league games saw them slip behind Manchester City in the table with nine games left to play after another insipid performance saw them draw 0-0 with Everton at Goodison Park. Klopp’s side controlled the first half, with the midfield selection of Fabinho, Wijnaldum and Henderson designed to do just that. But for all of the control, there was very little cutting edge, and when Liverpool …

Frozen Foxes Hold Liverpool to 1-1 Draw

Frozen Foxes Hold Liverpool to 1-1 Draw

Liverpool came into the match against Leicester with an opportunity to create a massive gulf between themselves and, best club in Europe, Manchester City. Rafa Benitez had done his part on Tuesday, beating City 2-1, but with injuries mounting and weather worsening, would The Reds be able to take full advantage? The line-up from Klopp was more confusing than inspiring. The shortage at right back was always going to call for something non-standard, but Klopp came out with Naby and …

Operation CupOut Complete: Wolves 2-1 Liverpool

Ah, the magic of the FA Cup... Is there another competition in the world that would allow Liverpool supporters a moment to sit back and appreciate their front-line starters more than this?  How about that squad depth am I right? You could tell Jurgen Klopp was really feeling the magic.  He revered the cup so much that he put out a side consisting of teenagers and Brodge retreads barely hanging on to their squad numbers.  The Reds were leaning on …

Another Composed Anfield Display As Liverpool Beat Fulham 2-0

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool - Can The Real Liverpool Please Stand Up?

P.H.E.W. That was painful, even infuriating at times, but in the end, Liverpool came away with a 1-0 win against Huddersfield at the John Smith's Stadium to stay joint-top of the Premier League. Mo Salah's 24th-minute goal, set up by Xherdan Shaqiri, was enough for Klopp's men to win on an evening where their opponents were industrious, but often just not good enough to break open what was a rather fragile rearguard. Klopp surprised everyone from the off, as both …

Observations as weary Reds lose at Stamford Bridge

Liverpool's extraordinary Champions League run has been truly unforgettable, but their recent Premier League exploits have been anything but. After a turbulent Wednesday night at the Stadio Olimpico, the emotionally and physically fatigued Reds subjected their supporters to a different kind of torment over the course of a turgid 90 minutes against top-four rivals Chelsea. Olivier Giroud's first-half header, the result of questionable defending, proved to be the decisive moment, with the visitors unable to penetrate a deep-lying, compact backline …
