Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

Liverpool 3-2 Milan: Player ratings as Reds wrestle back three points

When Liverpool win their opening Champions League group game 3-2 at Anfield, it tends to be good omen. This was a game that got the juices flowing in a similar vein to that victory over Paris Saint-Germain three years ago, except this time the scoreline gave it the illusion of a contest. Thanks to a Jordan Henderson winner that will universally be called Steven Gerrard-esque, Liverpool can bask in what was, on the whole, a supremely dominant display. Here's how …
Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

Clash Of The Reds' World Class Titans

The history of Liverpool FC is littered with attacking brilliance, overflowing with characters, and allows the fans a chance to relive memorable moments with a smile. Recent years (predominantly the Premier League era), has seen a marvellous array of forwards grace the Anfield turf, and disagreements as to who was better than who, will always be argued by the fan base. Where Ian Rush holds an almost insurmountable goal tally, his heir Robbie Fowler, possessed such clinical abilities in front …
Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool Make It Two Premier League Wins From Two With Burnley Victory

Liverpool continued their 100% winning start to the Premier League season with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield. Diogo Jota and Sadio Mane scored the goals in front of full Anfield house as the Reds, after a slow start, deservedly swept to victory against Sean Dyche's visitors. Burnley, who were undefeated away to Liverpool for two seasons, started well and they tested Alisson early when Dwight McNeil -- comfortably their best player on the day -- let rip with …
Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

Mo Salah - The World's Greatest in Waiting

At 29 years of age, Mohamed Salah stands as one of the five or six best forwards in world football. His goal return since becoming a red is simply phenomenal. 126 goals in 204 games is world class, and with much still to come, we could be about to see him evolve into the worlds best player. Certain generations have certain superstar footballers that dominate the stage, and these are usually attacking players. Rightly or wrongly, these types of player …

Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool Begin Premier League Campaign With Norwich Win

Liverpool opened up their Premier League campaign with a 3-0 win away to Norwich. Goals from Diogo Jota, Roberto Firmino, and Mohamed Salah wrapped up the points for the Reds, continuing the good form they showed at the end of last season in a good -- if not spectacular performance -- performance. Jurgen Klopp elected for an attacking lineup with the front three of Sadio Mane, Salah and Jota supported a midfield of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, and James …
How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

How should Liverpool line-up in attack this season?

Neil Jones got a lot of Liverpool fans talking recently when he wrote that 'next summer is already being talked up as a big one by sources close to the club'. I chose, based on past experience, not to read into that. Instead, it was another line in his piece that stood out to me. "Wonderful as they are, this will be the fifth season that those three [Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, of course] have made up …

Time for a central role for Mohamed Salah?

Liverpool are back, looking healthy and refreshed after a much-needed post-season break. The 2020/21 campaign was an intense one for the Reds, both mentally and physically, and both Jurgen Klopp and his players looked drained by the time they sealed Champions League football back in May. If one player carried this team more than anyone in 2020/21 it was Salah, who enjoyed another outstanding season while others around him struggled. Liverpool's No.11 scored 31 goals in all competitions, standing tall …
What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

What should Liverpool do with Divock Origi?

I won’t hear a bad word said against Divock Origi, but the club need to sell him this summer.  He’s a cult hero for what he did during the 2018/19 campaign and there’s absolutely no disputing that. It is still surreal to think back to that season and his involvement in it. He was chucked on late against Everton with Liverpool looking to sneak a win and he was in the right place to nod home after Jordan Pickford’s error. …
