LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

LIVERPOOL FC 3 - 3 BRIGHTON - THE PLAYER RATINGS

Starters: Alisson - 8 Week after week we rely on him, and he does his job. Trossard’s finishing becomes his problem, but for conceding three in a home match, you can’t ask for much more from the Brazilian keeper. Trent - 5 Let's Trossard turn him for the opener, which matches the tone of the season thus far as the world-class right-back continues to be questioned in defensive situations. Looked more positive in attack, and maybe should've been through on …
Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

Which Liverpool Players Should Enter Into The Next Phase

It’s international week, and unless it’s a major summer competition, I rarely pay any attention to the results and performances. The games usually revolve around occasions of no consequence, uneven match ups, silly qualification games, and a raft of ever-changing line ups. I checked on Monday to see whether the international break was over, only to learn it hadn’t even started. Liverpool's premature halt in their season has meant a prolonged stop, and it feels longer than the entirety of …
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly from Liverpool vs Bournemouth

Well that was one way to bounce back after a terrible start to the season. Having dropped seven points in their first three games, Liverpool took Bournemouth to the cleaners on Saturday afternoon at Anfield. A joint Premier League record victory of 9-0 had Anfield on its feet as last season's runners up showed the newly promoted side what life in the top flight is all about. Liverpool tied Manchester United, who have won 9-0 twice - against Ipswich in …
Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

Key Stats as Liverpool get first win of the season

What a lovely palate cleanser. After the horror of the first 3 games of the season, the Reds were able to let out a big exhale of tension with a record-matching victory of nine goals over Bournemouth. But what were the Key Stats as Klopp's men put the Cherries to the sword? Goals Goals Goals Liverpool got this record margin of victory from a similarly impressive xG difference of 3.23 to 0.29. Trebling that with finishing is needed too, of …

Liverpool FC 9 - 0 Bournemouth - The Player Ratings

The Starters: Alisson Becker – 7 Well positioned to clear or gather any slightly overhit long ball, which came in useful once or twice. Didn't have much to do, but did it well. Trent Alexander-Arnold – 8 What a strike! Trent looks like he's got something back after an underwhelming start to the season, but today he looked ready to win, and comfortably. Not every pass comes off as envisioned, but he gets enough of the hard ones right, putting …
The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

The Silly Season is (nearly) over...

Silly season(n) 1: a period (such as late summer) when the mass media often focus on trivial or frivolous matters for lack of major news stories 2: a period marked by frivolous, outlandish, or illogical activity or behaviour. There’s been a lot of silliness. It’s roughly two months since the Champions League final. A disappointing end on the pitch to what was nearly the greatest season of all time. A near tragedy off the pitch. We didn’t quite get over the line …
Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Southampton 1 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Could do nothing for the opening goal, given the deflection. The first half was pretty routine from there. Did everything correct through a nervy last few minutes. Joe Gomez - 6.5 So disappointing to see this young man injured, again. Was lively and unlucky for the goal. Was part of the equaliser. Subbed - 45 mins Kostas Tsimikas - 7.5 Gave good width, as Liverpool dominated the first half.His second half corner brought about Liverpools second …
History Is Being Written

History Is Being Written

The weekend's games brought up a variation of emotions for all Reds fans, with the jubilant FA Cup Final victory quickly replaced by pure viewership of the West Ham v City battle. Both games ended in a draw, and where Liverpool's score line eventually produced silverware, it could be that City’s draw will inevitably do the same. Points will still need to be dropped by City for Liverpool to stand a chance, and a stand-alone win against Southampton will keep …
Observations: A Fun Little Kickaround

Observations: A Fun Little Kickaround

Well that was a bit of a lark, wasn't it? Liverpool made through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after an exciting 3-3 draw at Anfield with Benfica to finish 6-4 on aggregate. Jurgen Klopp named a heavily rotated side, and at times it definitely showed. After the match, the gaffer explained that he'd made a last minute decision to change the back line, so this 4, who'd never played a competitive match together, had 20 minutes to figure …
Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Man Of The Match

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Man Of The Match

Bobby Firmino A man loved by the Reds' support, the players, and most importantly the manager. His work rate was impressive, and his goals a lovely sight. With so much talent in the Reds' forward options, Bobby can still have his high moments. Showed tremendous intelligence in his pressing, and movement off the ball. Two very well taken goals, and could be a starter more and more as the reds hunt more glory …
