Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool move to within 9 points of the Premier League title after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield.

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield in the early kickoff to go to within three wins of the Premier League title, after goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Callum Wilson's early goal for the Cherries was nothing but a little blip on the road. The Reds were well below-par, though, and need to be much better on Wednesday night when Atletico Madrid come to Anfield, in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. Here's how each …
Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool came from a goal behind to register their first win in three games in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield. Callum Wilson gave the relegation threatened visitors the lead in controversial style, when the striker clearly pushed Joe Gomez in the back in the build up to his goal, with VAR inexplicably allowing the effort to stand.

Disciplined Oxlade-Chamberlain Hints At Future Liverpool Tactics

When you think of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain at Liverpool, the word power quickly comes to mind. Formerly a winger, the English international -- after a couple of months settling into the demands of a Jurgen Klopp midfield -- made a big impact with the Reds in the opening months of 2018.

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie. The Alpine Messi has been hampered by a niggling injury to one of those enormous calves of his and has barely featured this season for Klopp's …

The future's bright for Klopp's young mentality monsters

Different team, same old story. To say Liverpool's progression to the Carabao Cup quarter-final was a rollercoaster would be a huge understatement after the 5-4 penalty win following a 5-5 draw against Arsenal at Anfield. It was a night where Klopp placed his faith in youth once more and Liverpool's stars of the future repaid that faith with a vibrant - if a little harem scarem - win. The Reds lined up with senior players such as Milner, Lallana, Oxlade-Chamberlain, …

Genk 1-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Genk 1-4 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

A win on the road in the Champions’ League Group Stage - only had to wait 2 years for it. Genk posed a bit of a threat, mainly from offside positions, but the Reds came out comfortable victors. It was a shame to not be able to see out the game with a clean sheet, but when you’ve got Dejan Lovren in the team you have to accept that goals will be scored against you. With that said, let’s get …
