Late Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool's Champions League Hopes Alive

Late Alisson Winner Keeps Liverpool's Champions League Hopes Alive

A late Alisson Becker winner secured Liverpool a last gasp 2-1 win against West Bromwich Albion that kept their Champions League qualification hopes alive. Drawing 1-1 against a deep-sitting home team, the Reds won a corner in the fourth minute of the allotted extra time. Trent Alexander Arnold's corner was then met powerfully by the head of the Brazilian and the ball surged past Sam Johnstone for a goal that could be huge in the years to come. West Brom …

Brave Klopp Selections Keeps Liverpool In Champions League Picture

Prior to this season, Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams had the same amount of top-flight football experience as you and I: zero. The highest rung of the football ladder that Phillips -- who was close to accepting a footballing college scholarship in the United States before joining the Liverpool academy -- found himself on was the German second division with VFB Stuttgart. Williams, meanwhile, played his trade in the non-league with Kidderminster Harriers. Therefore, it was entirely brave of Jurgen …

Reds defender delights in "ugly" win at Old Trafford

Liverpool's Nat Phillips recovered from a shaky start to play a huge part in The Reds' 4-2 win at Old Trafford on Thursday night. Phillips was unable to prevent Bruno Fernandes speculative attempt from going in after just 10 minutes. However, the centre-back reacted brilliantly to that nervy start to set up Diogo Jota's equaliser. Roberto Firmino scored two goals - one on either side of half-time - to put Liverpool 3-1 ahead. Marcus Rashford replied for United only for …
Toothless Liverpool Exit Champions League After Real Madrid Stalemate

Toothless Liverpool Exit Champions League After Real Madrid Stalemate

Liverpool exited the Champions League after a 0-0 draw against Real Madrid at Anfield. Trailing 3-1 from the first tie, the Reds battered the Spaniards for 90 minutes, but couldn't find a way to goal against the deep sitting and disciplined Spaniards. Despite creating several good openings, the home team -- with Mohamed Salah particularly guilty -- will rue their poor finishing and, of course, the abject performance in the first leg. Liverpool started the game with a breakneck tempo …

Liverpool defender delighted Reds showed fight to bounce back after going behind against Villa

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips was delighted with how The Reds battled back from a goal down to take all three points against Aston Villa. Phillips was at the heart of Liverpool's back four alongside Ozan Kabak again. They were unable to prevent Ollie Watkins from putting the visitors ahead in the first half. It was Watkins' fourth goal against Liverpool this season. Thankfully, Mohamed Salah and Trent Alexander-Arnold were able to provide the goals in the second half for The …
Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool Tame Wolves To Get Back To Winning Ways In The League

Liverpool's top-four prospects were given a shot in the arm after a 1-0 win away to Wolves. Returning to his former club, Diogo Jota scored the game's solitary goal and gave the Reds what was -- on the overall balance -- a deserved win. The visitors started the game in a shaky fashion and this was typified by Alisson. Coming to claim a routine cross from Adama Traore, the Brazilian made unconvincing contact and the ball spilled into the path …
Phillips & Kabak: Liverpool's Should Be Pairing At The Back

Phillips & Kabak: Liverpool's Should Be Pairing At The Back

Liverpool, allowing for exaggeration, fielded their 8000th centre-half combination of the season against Red Bull Leipzig in their 2-0 Champions League last 16 victory over the German's last Wednesday night. Nat Phillips and Ozan Kabak saddled up together for only the second time and the young duo was largely superb in keeping a clean sheet against the Bundesliga side. With Phillips acting as the aggressor -- the Bolton native won two aerial duels and headed clear four times, while also …
Liverpool And The Fabinho Conundrum

Liverpool And The Fabinho Conundrum

Without a shred of a doubt, Fabinho has been Liverpool's best centre half this season. Considering the Brazilian only played the role once previously, keeping Robert Lewandowski scoreless in a 0-0 Champions League draw with FC Bayern in 2019, his adaptation to the heart of the defence has been remarkable. In lieu of the injured Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip, the number 3 has been a beacon of consistency in the backline, despite the nonstop mismatch of …

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 2-0 Leipzig (4-0 aggregate): Player ratings as Reds march on

Liverpool 2-0 Leipzig (4-0 aggregate): Player ratings as Reds march on

There will be attempts to dampen this initially torturous, eventually comfortable victory. Leipzig, it will be said, are the ideal opponents for this one-dimensional iteration of Liverpool. The depleted Reds' prospects of going all the way in the competition will be written off. However valid those reservations, this win offers supporters a precious feeling of contentment for, at the very least, four days. It is serene respite from the unrelenting domestic misery. Liverpool kept the tie alive as long as …
