Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: Who Was Man Of The Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Manchester United: Who Was Man Of The Match?

The Liverpool of old may well have been held to an agonising draw after being pegged back in such disheartening circumstances, but this side were in no mood to hand Manchester United a point they simply didn't deserve. Liverpool had raced out of the blocks and had Mourinho's men on the ropes. Sadio Mane's delightful opener threatened to open the floodgates before an Alisson error, depressing predictable after a week of the highest praise, gifted the visitors a leveller. Thereafter, …
Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Naby Keita Offers Liverpool Perfect Weapon to End United Hoodoo

Liverpool's recent Premier League record against Manchester United is woeful. If all matches were played without context, United would be the biggest two games of each league season for the Reds. Since Brendan Rodgers' wonderful 2013-14 side went and won 3-0 at Old Trafford, United haven't lost in the league to Liverpool. Domestically, United are eight unbeaten in the fixture, winning five and drawing three. Whilst that record doesn't only cover Jurgen Klopp's tenure, the German hasn't had much fortune …
Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Big chances are a crucial part of any Premier League team’s season. They help to differentiate the quality of a team. It expands nicely on the basic idea of xG that not all shots are equal. Bobby Firmino’s tap-in from a yard against Spurs was a better quality chance than when Denis Odoi shot from the halfway line against us for Fulham. So by looking at how many quality chances Liverpool are creating, and more importantly who is creating them, …
How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

How well is Jurgen Klopp rotating his Liverpool squad?

No Salah, no Firmino and no Mane. The seven changes Jurgen Klopp made to his starting eleven at Turf Moor raised a considerable number of eyebrows last Wednesday, not least from myself. But subsequently, having collected six points from two potentially tough away fixtures against Burnley and Bournemouth, as part of a gruelling festive schedule are we right to think our boss is rotating the squad to perfection. For many years this is the one factor which has prevented very …

Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Waiting for the line-up card to come out has become one of the most suspenseful parts of the Liverpool experience in recent weeks. Most of the anticipation surrounds the season's long wait for Jurgen Klopp to actually field his best eleven, or what the majority of us assume is his best eleven. Injuries to Joe Gomez and Sadio Mané took that option away, but on December 8th, away at Bournemouth, Jurgen Norbert Klopp finally played the Fabinho, Naby Keita, and …

Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Mohamed Salah reminds the Premier League exactly what he's all about and the Reds are top of the Premier League, for a few hours at least. Not a bad way to start the weekend. Bournemouth aren't a bad side and the 4-0 scoreline doesn't really reflect the gulf between the two teams, but Liverpool were, and are, better. Salah's three goals combined with own goal of the season from Steve Cook keeps the unbeaten run going. Over to you, Manchester …
