Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Post-Match RAW: Klopp The Master, Poundland Pep & The Morbid Brothers

Before the match, hosts Arsenal were in a run of form they've not seen for years, putting themselves in pole position to qualify for the Champions League. Nevertheless, they were playing against the form side in Premier League (and Europe) as Liverpool travelled to London to face the Gunners. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor hosted Dave Hendrick and Jim Boardman for the instant reaction to what ended up being quite a comfortable victory in the end. First up was the idea, …
Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

Key Stats as Liverpool disarm the Gunners

The juggernaut rolled though the Emirates and didn't stop, thanks to goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino. But what were the key stats as the Reds got to within one point of Manchester City? Silence, then thunder https://twitter.com/markstatsbot/status/1504218728644313089?s=12 Not much happened in the first half. Both teams had few shots, none of which was particularly dangerous. The xG scores were 0.10 to Arsenal and 0.19 to Liverpool, a good indicator of how little action there was in both boxes. …

Under Pressure: Textbook Rotation, Perfect Pressing and Naby's Great Form

Liverpool may have lost to Inter Milan at Anfield, but the Under Pressure boys soon to put to bed any doubt that the Reds deserved to go through with a comprehensive run down of the key stats from the two legged tie: 3.1 xG to 0.8 coupled with FIVE big chances to the Italian side's zero. Case closed. However, the main focus of the podcast was the victory over Brighton - including the continued impressive rotation, the controlled pressing and …
The Salah Ultimatum

The Salah Ultimatum

I want Mohamed Salah to sign a new contract with Liverpool, as he’s the world's best player, performing to the peak of his powers. He is perhaps the most remarkable signing in Liverpool's history, and the success that has been garnered (during his stay), is as much to do with him as anyone else. This last week has seen Liverpool fans made aware of his contract stalemate, and the fact that a new one remains unsigned. The numbers are relatively …
Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

Brighton 0 - 2 Liverpool - Match Report

In a game where Liverpool actually had slightly less possession, it was a clear case of managing the match accordingly. The Reds rarely had to stretch themselves, and short of the odd and inevitable moment, they cruised to a comfortable 0-2 victory. Brighton are in a slump, not a free fall slump, but a worrying run of form. This marks five Premier League losses on the spin for Graham Potter, and the mid-table safety they hold appears to have seen …

Thank You For Your Service

Watching Luis Diaz this past month has driven home the logic in reshaping this Liverpool squad. With any elite group of players, there simply has to be a moment where peak becomes decline, and strong decisions have to made. In the case of this superb Liverpool group, there are now certain players that could inevitably end up leaving, and this piece will focus on their potential destinations and the likely replacements. 1 - James Milner There’s a pretty even split …

Molby On The Spot: The Sour Grapes Gang & Slim Victories

Compared to the previous week - with victories over Leeds and Chelsea - this was a more cerebral affair, especially in terms of goals scored and how eventful the matches were; however, in the context of the season, the victory over West Ham might turn out to be more important. On Jan Molby's Anfield Index show there was plenty of topics to discuss, including: using the whole squad, while balancing the need to keep them all happy, and how that …
Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

Post-Match RAW: Nervy Win Over Impressive West Ham

David Moyes taken a lot of criticism from Liverpool fans over the years - most of it absolutely justified because of his absurdly bad record against the Reds. That has started to change though, and once again, probably with valid reasons because he has done an excellent job at West Ham since returning as manager. And, on Saturday evening, his team once again caused Klopp's Liverpool a number of problems, thankfully, they managed to solve them and finish with the …
Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Should Liverpool loan out Curtis Jones next season?

Curtis Jones was named in the starting XI for Liverpool’s match against Leicester City. He then didn’t make the cut for the squad in the following three games. It may seem ruthless and a little harsh from Jurgen Klopp, but when everyone is fit, the competition for a place in the matchday squad is like never before.  Someone has to miss out.  Jones is versatile but he isn’t as versatile as James Milner or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, for example. Because of …
Klopp vs Pep - The Numbers Behind The Rivalry

Klopp vs Pep - The Numbers Behind The Rivalry

Is it the greatest rivalry in the history of English football? Jurgen Klopp versus Pep Guardiola, Liverpool versus Manchester City. Records are constantly being broken: the first and only team to achieve 100 points in a league season (Man City - 2017/18); the biggest lead ever in English football at the top of the table (Liverpool, 25 points - 2019/20); most consecutive wins in all competitions (Man City - 23, 2021/22); earliest title victory in history (Liverpool, with seven games …
