Pep Guardiola and his Liverpool Inferiority Complex

Liverpool are in Pep Guardiola's head more than ever before. It's quite something.

He can't help himself and it reeks of a man who can't get Liverpool out of his mind, being kept awake at night by images of Andy Robertson …

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time.

The Belgian defender couldn't react in time to the loose ball and could only watch on in horror as it rolled over the line. Anfield erupted as Liverpool went …
