Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Brighton 0-1 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Grinding out a win when not at your best is a mark of champions, according to the old footballing axiom. Brighton made life difficult for Liverpool on Saturday afternoon, but when the Reds found the breakthrough their game-management was superb. It was a pedestrian first-half performance for the visitors, who predictably encountered a compact and deep-lying Brighton backline. The only real moments of excitement were a near-miss from a sliding Roberto Firmino and a header which Xherdan Shaqiri planted narrowly …

Sleepy Seagull Saturday keeps Liverpool on title path

Sleepy Seagull Saturday keeps Liverpool on title path

A sleepy Saturday saw Liverpool cruise to another win and our 57th point of the season; 1 short of our full season totals in 04/05 and 10/11, already having surpassed the 98/99 and 11/12 totals.  The fact that we’re climbing the list of Liverpool’s top Premier League point totals in the middle of January is quite something.  Now it’s up to Spurs against United on Sunday and City against Wolves to keep up the pace. The match was one that …

Observations as Liverpool lose their cloak of invincibility at the Etihad

Well... That was a bit shit, wasn't it? Many of us went into the game praying that Liverpool don't lose tonight, and for large parts of the game, it seemed as though the players heard the prayers as Liverpool were largely in their shell. Liverpool needed an Aguero goal at the Etihad (for the zillionth time) to wake up from their slumber. Liverpool equalised with an exquisite move but lost out to a great goal from Sane. The key observations …
Reds stutter as superb City end the unbeaten run

Reds stutter as superb City end the unbeaten run

That Brexit midfield. That Dejan Lovren. Why? Just why? Liverpool finished second-best in all departments as they lost 2-1 to Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, and saw their lead at the top of the Premier League cut to four points, with seventeen games left to play. Leroy Sane scored the winner for City after Sergio Aguero's superb opener was cancelled out by Roberto Firmino. Liverpool can have no complaints, and from the off, City looked like the side with more …

A sluggish start saw a series of wayward passes at the back, with Dejan Lovren needlessly surrendering possession in a dangerous area. Maitland Niles was on hand to slot in from close range after just eleven minutes, …

Penaltypool Returns! Reds, Refs Annihilate Arsenal 5-1

Spurs spursed! Tottenham tottenhamed! The Lillywhites 1-3 loss to Wolves was a glorious start to the day, leaving Liverpool with the potential to add distance between themselves and their wobbly pursuers. Would the rest of North London cooperate? Regardless of the early results, Liverpool was primed for a strong showing against Arsenal. These matches always entertain, and Jurgen Klopp had selected a strong side, giving little attention to the City tie on the horizon. The Reds started brightly, but in …
