Liverpool Move To Top Of League Despite Brighton Draw

Liverpool Move To Top Of League Despite Brighton Draw

More VAR controversy ensued as Liverpool moved to the top of the Premier League table, despite conceding a late goal to draw 1-1 at Brighton. The Reds took the lead early in the second half with a well-worked Diogo Jota goal, but Brighton -- with their second penalty kick of the day, after Neal Maupay missed their first -- equalized late on through Pascal Gross' spot-kick. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane were denied goals for offside by the video technology, …
Neco Williams And The Toxic Culture of Scapegoating

Neco Williams And The Toxic Culture of Scapegoating

Liverpool, as a collective, were poor in their 2-0 defeat at Anfield to Atalanta in the Champions League this past week. Jurgen Klopp -- wary of the physical toll that a stupidly compacted season will take on his players -- made a raft of changes and his team, predictably played with a lack of synergy and rhythm. The Italians, with their aggressive man-marking system, were given a lot of latitude to impose themselves physically by the Spanish referee in a …
Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Lethargic Liverpool Look Lame As Atalanta Win

Liverpool fell to a 2-0 defeat to Atalanta at Anfield in the Champions League. Goals from Josip Ilicic and Robin Gosens sealed a deserved win for the Italians in a drab affair, marshalled by a referee, Carlos del Cerro from Spain, who was lax when it came to punishing overly physical play. The Reds, meanwhile, who made a host for changes to their team from the comfortable victory over Leicester City were abject throughout. All the personnel alterations lead to …

Liverpool's Atalanta Academy Appearances Point To Bright Future

Diogo Jota's hat-trick and Liverpool's overall performance were the main talking points from the Reds' 5-0 hammering of Atalanta last Tuesday. But it shouldn't be lost in the narrative that the English champions featured four homegrown, academy produced players over the course of the 90 minutes in Bergamo. Rhys Williams slotted in comfortably at centre half next to Joe Gomez, Curtis Jones -- alongside Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson -- was part of the midfield three and Trent Alexander started …

Patrick van Aanholt: A Liverpool Player In Waiting

Liverpool find themselves in a strange position at the moment. With their first eleven and the most the supporting cast of the highest quality, their needs in the transfer market centre around finding adequate backup players and prospects for the future. Perhaps the position most in need of bolstering in the market is the substitute left-back berth, more so than front three depth and a fourth choice centre-half. As the clubs only senior left-sided full-back in a team who delegate …
Liverpool 1-1 Burnley: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 1-1 Burnley: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool drop points at Anfield in the Premier League for the first time this season after a 1-1 draw with Burnley. The Reds had more than enough chances to win the game but poor finishing and even worse refereeing meant we had to settle for a point. This result means Liverpool will need to win all three of their remaining games to break the league points record. In goal, Alisson had virtually nothing to do all game and stood no …
