MOTM Fabinho raises levels as Liverpool advance in Europe

MOTM Fabinho raises levels as Liverpool advance in Europe

Jurgen Klopp hailed the joy of seeing "the best number six in the world" back in his favourite position, as Fabinho put in a Man of the Match display throughout Liverpool's 2-0 win over Leipzig on Wednesday night. Courtesy of goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, Liverpool rode to a 4-0 aggregate win over the in-form German side, casting aside Premier League concerns to move into the Champions League quarter finals. Unlike the first leg, where Liverpool weren't brilliant …
Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool Cruise Into Champions League Quarter Finals After Leipzig Victory

Liverpool cruised into the quarter-final of the Champions League after a 2-0 victory over Red Bull Leipzig in Hungary. Goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the six times winners a deserved victory over the Bundesliga side. Were it not for poor finishing, with Diogo Jota, Mane, and Salah all guilty of blowing big chances, the Reds would have won by a far bigger margin. With Fabinho back marshaling the midfield -- allowing Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak to …
Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool Fall To Record Fifth Home Defeat In A Row in Chelsea Loss

Liverpool fell to club-record fifth consecutive Premier League home defeat with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea at Anfield. Mason Mount's first-half goal separated the teams in a result that could well prove a hammer blow to the Reds' Champions League qualification prospects. Controversy ensued when Jurgen Klopp replaced Mohamed Salah late on, despite the Egyptian looking like the host's best chance of manufacturing a goal, with Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino -- both of whose performances were well below their …
What went wrong against Chelsea

What went wrong against Chelsea

Losing and getting beat are two different things entirely. Many things in football are random and this can play a huge part in performances not getting the results they deserve. You can take those losses on the chin, sort of. For example, in some games Liverpool have lost this season, they’ve been the better side, they’ve had the better chances, but they’ve not had the required luck. Play them 100 times over and the Reds win 95 of them, that …
Liverpool's New Shape

Liverpool's New Shape

To put it bluntly, Liverpool dominated Sheffield United. In previous games against the Blades, it’s been a struggle and the Reds have needed to dig deep to eke out wins. This game wasn’t like that, though. It finished 2-0 but it could’ve easily have been 5-0. In fact, it probably should’ve been.  Jurgen Klopp, to the surprise of many, didn’t make any changes to his midfield or attack. There had been rumblings in the build-up that Fabinho and Diogo Jota …
Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool Defeat Blades In Comfortable Win

Liverpool moved within two points of fourth with a 2-0 victory away to Sheffield United. Goals from man of the match Curtis Jones and a deflected Roberto Firmino drive gave the Reds a richly deserved win at Bramall Lane. Were it not from the heroics of Aaron Ramsdale in the hosts' goals, the defending champions -- who had eight shots on target -- would have won by a much healthier margin, which would have reflected their dominance. With Alisson given …
Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Mohamed Salah: Liverpool's Underestimated Leader

Leadership comes in many forms. When you mention the word in the context of Liverpool, several names come to mind. Jordan Henderson, James Milner, and Virgil van Dijk -- three of the four members of the first team's leadership group, along with Georginio Wijnaldum -- are all associated with being leaders, whether that's through their vocal presence or by virtue of their respect-commanding aura. A name you seldom hear mentioned when it comes to leaders in the Reds' squad is …
Liverpool 0-2 Everton: What went wrong in first derby defeat for 11 years?

Liverpool 0-2 Everton: What went wrong in first derby defeat for 11 years?

Nothing lasts forever. It had been 22 years since Everton had won at Anfield. I was less than a month old. And of course it was going to be this season, this god-forsaken, gut-punch season, that the Blues' drought came to an end. Liverpool fans were united in their incandescence when a quite unfathomable penalty decision enabled Everton to double their lead. But that is merely a cathartic cloak for undeniable despair. Jurgen Klopp's side remains in the Champions League. …
Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

Liverpool's 'crisis' merits criticism but not an overreaction

So apparently football really does determine your mood. After an awful run of results for Liverpool, they roared back on Tuesday night, making a formidable RB Leipzig side look as average as a mid-table Premier League side. That weight was instantly lifted, whether it be for Jurgen Klopp, his players or the supporters, as the Reds produced a performance that suggests they are back. Alisson responded well after a shocking couple of games; Trent Alexander-Arnold was influential; Ozan Kabak and …
