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

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

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

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 …

Liverpool 3 - 3 Benfica - The Player Ratings

Alisson Becker - 7.0 Always great to see his commanding presence on big nights at Anfield. Would have been relieved to see a brilliant chipped goal by Nunez chalked off for offside. 31 minutes saw a clinical finish fly past him, as Benfica drove on. His handling was assured, as Benfica started to test from wide positions after the break. Was unlucky in the one-on-one for Benfica’s second goal. The melee at the end couldn’t dampen the occasion. Joe Gomez …
Firmino fully deserving of Liverpool century duty

Firmino fully deserving of Liverpool century duty

Roberto Firmino has, throughout his time at Liverpool, proved to be a perfect sidekick for other superheroes dressed in red. The Brazilian has never complained at having to play the role of Robin as the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane have set about performing their best Batman impressions. For a man from South America, standing in the shadows can be as rewarding as one under the brightest of spotlights, with their plaudits to be found even when others …
Bobby & The Etihad Corral

Bobby & The Etihad Corral

The gunfight at the O.K Corral is an historical moment that has been retold many times over, throughout various western movies. Depending on your age, movies that still seem fairly modern to me will probably be deemed ancient by the generations born after me. Tombstone was a brilliant film that had every scene stolen by Val Kilmer, as the notorious gunslinger, Doc Holiday. This man was a peculiar man, that had a charming manner and bespoke ability in particular situations. …
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. …

Post-Match RAW: Controlled Victory At The San Siro

It is always going to be difficult travelling to Italy in a knockout Champions League, even more soo when you facing the reigning Serie A holders Inter Milan, a side who rarely lose at home in Europe. They may not be as strong as they were last season under Conte after selling their best two players, but regardless, this was certain to be a test for Klopp's team. On Post-Match RAW, Trevor, Dave and Karl (joined by Guy for the …

Observations on Inter Milan-Liverpool

Liverpool experienced some turbulent times in the early part of the season due to unfortunate injuries and missed opportunities in the league that put them in a tough spot looking up at City in first place, but the Champions League was quite the bright spot in the Reds’ season to date. Jurgen’s boys took the continent by storm with a perfect 6 wins out of 6 group stage matches that put an end to the Reds’ road woes in Europe …
