Observations as Liverpool Endure Another Stalemate

Observations as Liverpool Endure Another Stalemate

Funny isn't it. Tuesday night saw one of the most free-flowing attacking performances Liverpool have produced this season, possibly ever under Klopp. Running riot against Roma, five goals in the Champions League semi-final was no small feat; an indication of what this side are capable of in the final third. The contrast between that performance and Saturday's couldn't be starker. This was not a semi-final contest with the possibility of a trip to Kiev and a chance for Klopp to …

Liverpool Player Ratings From Stoke Stalemate

A performance that makes you wonder why you bothered getting up for it in the first place. Yes, Liverpool have got bigger fish to fry at the moment, but in a season that's been defined by European nights it seems a little odd that we're not more worried about making sure we're in the Champions League next season. Onto the ratings where I was tempted to give them all 'N/A' which would today stand for 'Not Arsed'. A clean sheet, …

Referred to as the 'Mo Salah' Derby prior to kick-off, this was yet another ninety minutes of scintillating football dominated by the newly named PFA Player of the Year.

West Brom 2-2 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

West Brom 2-2 Liverpool: What Went Wrong?

With 18 minutes remaining, Liverpool enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 lead against bottom club West Brom and the points were all but in the bag. The travelling supporters were in fine voice in the Midlands sunshine, revelling in Mohamed Salah's latest strike.

Promptly, …

Slack Reds Pegged Back In Share Of Spoils Against WBA

Liverpool went to the Hawthorns and were pegged back by the basement team West Bromwich Albion, as the game ended in a 2-2 draw.

Rush, Suarez or …
Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

Where Does Salah Rank Among Europe's Best?

The nature of the conversation around Mo Salah has indeed shifted in recent weeks, culminating in a significant shift following Liverpool’s 5-0 win over Watford. Salah was of course, entirely unplayable on Saturday, scoring four and assisting Bobby Firmino’s goal, but that performance was only the cherry on top of what has been a truly elite season for Salah. His 28 goals make him the top scorer in the top five European leagues, with nobody contributing more than his 37 …
