Ajax 0 - 3 Liverpool - Champions League Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 Started well, could do little but cover his angles as the ball struck the post in the opening moments, and looked steady enough through the opening stages. Was mostly untested as the reds took control through the second half. Trent Alexander Arnold- 7.0 Back in as a starter, he looked unsure on the ball and tentative early on in his defensive work. Nearly created a big chance early on with a lazy inside ball. …

Nottingham Forest 1-0 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

ah, where do we start. A rough night for the Reds in Nottingham. The Goal Another calamity of errors from Liverpool in the back. Gomez loses to Awoniyi in a terrible spot due to a brain lapse, and does the only reasonable thing left, take the yellow and gift Forest a deep free kick. The kick isn't taken particularly quickly, but Milner loses his man at the back post. Cook takes the clipped ball down, not pressured at all, surveys …

Nottingham Forest 1 - 0 Liverpool - PL Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 8.0 The reds penalty saving hero in the week, and most consistently reliable shield against attacks this year. He was as critical with some smart saves early on, as Liverpool were slow out of the blocks. Made a tremendous save late on, and that’s not a good thing to be so reliant on his brilliance. James Milner - 6.0 Back into the fray, after a rest in midweek. He had lots of running to do, …

The low one handed save wars critical and he showed why he’s the worlds best. James Milner - 9.0 A brilliant performance, and one which was needed. He stood up to Foden and didn’t allow him space or time to play. Was always a willing …

Rangers 1 - 7 Liverpool - CL Player Ratings

Starting XI Alisson Becker - 7.0 The reds most reliable performer this term. Could do little for the opening goal, with the scorer having a clean shot to take. Was rarely troubled for the remainder of the half. Had even less to do in the second period. Joe Gomez - 7.0 A more solid fullback could be what was needed in this exact moment. Was defensively dominant from the start, winning his duals and showing his strength time after time. …
Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Why Europe Can Offer A Much Needed Distraction

Six games in, and the Liverpool progress has been at best irregular. With a summer transfer window posing as many questions as answers, it has become a worried fanbase very quickly. When we lost to Man United, that was a low that was quickly reacted to. In the past week we have seen a disjointed display against Newcastle and then Everton, garnering four points. The only positive right now is that Manchester City dropped points, but it doesn’t mask how …
Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

Liverpool's Disjointed Attack

The game against Bournemouth was the first time this season that Liverpool had been able to get Luis Diaz and Mohamed Salah involved properly.   Prior to that, the wide forward pairing had struggled to influence proceedings on a consistent basis. Diaz, for example, had taken seven shots in his three Premier League appearances. Across matches against Fulham and Crystal Palace, he had an Expected Goals average of just 0.21.  Granted, the sample size isn’t the largest but it was a …

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

Do Liverpool need an attacker?

All of the focus has been on whether or not Liverpool need midfield reinforcements over recent weeks. The attack has been somewhat neglected.  It is one of those areas for the Reds that, on paper, looks well stocked. In reality, though, it is a little light. At surface level, Jurgen Klopp has five senior attackers at his disposal in Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Luis Diaz, Roberto Firmino and Darwn Nunez. He also possesses Fabio Carvalho and Harvey Elliott could play …
