Liverpool 4-3 Salzburg: Key stats as Reds make amends following collapse

Liverpool 4-3 Salzburg: Key stats as Reds make amends following collapse

Liverpool's habit of fashioning European theatre very nearly proved their undoing as a first-half performance full of swagger gave way to a nightmarish spell after the break. In little over 20 match minutes, the Reds surrendered a three-goal advantage they had so sublimely built, leaving stunned supporters fearing the worst. But soon the cogs of the winning machine started turning again, with Mohamed Salah striking the decisive blow to get the reigning champions off the mark. This wasn't quite the …
Liverpool 4-3 RB Salzburg - Player Ratings as Austrians give Reds a huge scare

Liverpool 4-3 RB Salzburg - Player Ratings as Austrians give Reds a huge scare

The European Champions have their title defence up and running again. Liverpool bounced back from their 2-0 defeat in Naples, with a 4-3 win over RB Salzburg at Anfield in what was a crazy game typified by an energetic Salzburg side who attacked with verve, and an uncharacteristically sloppy Liverpool side. Goals from Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Mo Salah put the Reds in command in the first half, but in 22 minutes either side of half-time, Salzburg came storming …
Is Roberto Firmino world class?

Is Roberto Firmino world class?

Very few players in world football have positions named after them. Only a handful do and they're usually individuals who transformed that role. Andrea Pirlo wasn't the first playmaker to be deployed in the defensive midfield role but he certainly enjoyed the most success there and that quarterback position was soon christened the Pirlo role. Philipp Lahm probably wasn't the first inverted full-back but he was the most memorable. Without him, it's unlikely we ever get to see Trent Alexander-Arnold …
Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds stay perfect... just

Chelsea 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds stay perfect... just

If Liverpool win the Premier League title this season, they won't look back on their many cruising victories, but on the wins they scraped when not at their best. And you'd imagine this match will be near the top of that list. It looked as if it might prove surprisingly straightforward when Roberto Firmino added to Trent Alexander-Arnold's sublime effort, but after N'Golo Kante's equally dazzling, if preventable, strike, it was shelter behind the couch stuff. Here are the standout …
Liverpool Must Improve

Liverpool Must Improve

Absurd title, isn’t it? Allow me to explain... Every Premier League game these days feels like a ‘must win’ for Liverpool Football Club. Such is life when you’re effectively chasing perfection and trying to outdo this Manchester City outfit. The opening five (admittedly kind) league matches have been expertly navigated by Jürgen Klopp, yielding the perfect 15 point return that Liverpool fans dreamed of when the season began. Now though, as summer ebbs away and the Champions League kicks off …
Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle: A Tactical Breakdown

International breaks can often pose a challenge for teams on a winning streak, with an unnecessary interruption to the rhythm of the side. Against Newcastle, for the opening 15-20 minutes at least, it seemed that was the case. Newcastle opted to launch balls into the wide channels, and fight for second balls, but it was an uncharacteristic mistake by the Liverpool defensive line, in an attempt to play Newcastle offside, which was then followed by an individual mistake by Alexander-Arnold, …
Reserved Reds Retain Summit Status

Reserved Reds Retain Summit Status

Liverpool retained top spot in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-1 victory over Newcastle at Anfield in Saturday's 12:30 kick off. A brace of goals from Sadio Mané as well as a Mohamed Salah strike were enough to seal the win for Jurgen Klopp's men, despite falling behind to an early Jetro Willems goal from the visitor's. The hosts made two additions from their 3-0 win away to Burnley three weeks ago, with Alex Oxlade Chamberlain coming in for …

Sadio Mané says his goal celebration is here to stay

Sadio Mané says his goal celebration is here to stay

Liverpool's Sadio Mané says he has no intention of changing his 'new' goal celebration despite the fact he stole it from teammate Roberto Firmino! Speaking to Complex, Mané claimed that Firmino's copyright on the celebration could not still stand as the Brazilian has moved on, using many varied celebrations since.
“Each player in this squad, if you want to keep this celebration as your own it’s quite difficult because we score quite a lot! “Bobby did that celebration two or …
