RAW: Rampant Reds destroy the soul of the Red Devils

RAW: Rampant Reds destroy the soul of the Red Devils

If getting hammered five-nil at Old Trafford, with a sitting duck manager, wasn't enough Manchester United decided to try and replicate it once more at Anfield. The similarities were striking: early goal for Liverpool before the 5th minute; Paul Pogba leaving the pitch early; a lame manager with no influence; and Mo Salah running riot and the Reds racking up a cricket score (well, an English batting performance anyway). On Post-Match RAW, Dave and Hari joined Trevor in his rural …
Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - The Player Ratings

Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 8.0 A relative spectator for the first half, and did fine things in possession. Was able to stay focused throughout. A very nice outing as sweeper keeper. Trent Alexander-Arnold 8.0 Brilliant work early on, with a rampaging urgency to help create the opening goal. Was a keen tracker when Sancho came on, and showed fine defensive ability to snuff out that threat. Andy Robertson - 9.0 Up and down as always, his enthusiasm wasn’t entirely matched by …
Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - Man Of The Match

Liverpool 4 - 0 Manchester United - Man Of The Match

Thiago Alcantara The master orchestrater and controller of the Reds' midfield. He wanted the ball in any and every situation, and United could do nothing to stop him. His first half display was sensational, with the game both quickened and slowed to meet his desire. A moment in the first half saw him win the ball on half way, like a prime Mascherano. His overall okay was near faultless, and there was even recognition from the commentators. To enjoy this …
How Will Klopp & Ole Approach Sunday’s Game

How Will Klopp & Ole Approach Sunday’s Game

Whether or not Sunday’s game versus Manchester United is still viewed as Liverpool’s biggest game can be debated. Manchester City, from across the way, are now light years away (of United) in terms of the football, and it is Pep’s side which must now be overcome in order to mount a valid title challenge. There used to be a time when finishing above United all but guaranteed Premier League success, however the period after Sir Alex has been turbulent at …
Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup to play Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday?

Will this be Liverpool's starting lineup to play Manchester United at Anfield on Sunday?

Liverpool and Manchester United meet at Anfield on Sunday in a top-of-the-table Premier League clash. What starting eleven will Jürgen Klopp go with? The Reds are currently without Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Kostas Tsimikas and Diogo Jota while it looks like Joel Matip and Naby Keita are also losing their race to be fit for Sunday's game. This means Klopp has some huge decisions to make for this fixture thanks to Liverpool's ongoing injury problems. Alisson Becker is fit, …
Why this Liverpool team is one of the best ever

Why this Liverpool team is one of the best ever

So, it’s already happening. When Liverpool won the Champions League last season, the narrative from rivals fans was that they needed to win the Premier League to be considered a great team. Now that the Reds have ended their 30-year wait, the goalposts are once again being moved. I won’t name the person or the show because I’m fairly certain they come out with these sorts of takes for attention. If you really want to watch it, I’m sure you’ll …
Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Mo Salah: Both underappreciated & overprotected?

Contrary to popular belief, Mohamed Salah is much more like Cristiano Ronaldo than Lionel Messi. The Egyptian superstar may possess the latter's gorgeous left foot and low centre of gravity, but there is so much more about him that screams Ronaldo. Away from the grinning face and all-round likeable personality, there is a huge ego where Salah is concerned - he is someone who knows exactly how good he is, precisely how many goals he has scored and is well …
Does Rashford get into the Liverpool XI?

Does Rashford get into the Liverpool XI?

We’re in 2020 yet people are still judging players on goals scored.  Heading into Liverpool’s clash with Manchester United, the big talking point centred around whether or not Marcus Rashford would get into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI. As outlandish as it sounds, some genuinely believed that to be the case. Their argument was based around the fact the United No.10 had more goals to his name than any of the starting trio the Reds, and that on current form he’d …
Liverpool out for revenge in Man United showdown

Liverpool out for revenge in Man United showdown

It's the only blip on Liverpool's near perfect league record this season. A frustrating 1-1 draw at Old Trafford is the only fixture in which Klopp's side have dropped points in the Premier League, and is likely the only thing worth bragging about if you're unfortunate enough to be a Manchester United fan at present. The game was scrappy for the first 60 minutes, and Liverpool will still be aggrieved that Rashford's opener was allowed to stand after a foul …
Jurgen Klopp's tactical masterclass against Manchester United

Jurgen Klopp's tactical masterclass against Manchester United

It’s been described by parts of the Manchester United media as an Ole Gunnar Solskjær masterclass. The Red Devils took to the Old Trafford pitch for the match against Liverpool with one purpose. It wasn’t to win, it was simply not to lose. It’s been a common theme over recent seasons with the power shift between the two sides becoming more and more evident. United used to be the clear favourites in these clashes. Now they aren’t even the favourites …
