Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Brighton 1-3 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Reds continue their centurions push

Liverpool made hard work of things after a lightning start at the Amex Stadium, as they beat Brighton 3-1 thanks to a brace from Mohamed Salah. It was the Egyptian who gave Liverpool the lead, before the skipper Jordan Henderson doubled it a couple of minutes later. Brighton grew into the game for the rest of the first half, and deservedly pulled a goal back through Leandro Trossard, but Salah's header off an Andy Robertson corner sealed the points for …
Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool Fly Above Seagulls

Liverpool became the quickest team in Premier League history to win 30 games in a season with a 3-1 win over Brighton at the Amex Stadium. A brace from Golden Boot chasing Mohamed Salah as well as a Jordan Henderson screamer was enough to seal the win for the Reds -- who handed Neco Williams a debut at left back -- despite a far from vintage performance against a brave Brighton outfit. Liverpool roared into an early lead, with a …
Iconic Moments From A Season To Remember

Iconic Moments From A Season To Remember

Premier League Champions. Only we know how as a collective fanbase we've longed to hear those beautiful words. Everything about the manner in which the title was finally secured spells out poetic. Six years ago our title hopes were obliterated with a disappointing draw at Palace and a loss to Chelsea at home. Willian hammered in the final nail in the coffin with his goal thus handing the visitors a 2-0 victory and the Premier League title to City. Fast …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool banked yet another 3 points at Anfield after a very lacklustre 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. Until Mané put the Reds in front in the 70th minute, we failed to create any chance of note whatsoever, with Villa looking the more likely to break the deadlock with numerous dangerous counterattacks. A win is a win, though, which keeps our remarkable run of victories at home continuing along nicely. In goal, Alisson unsurprisingly started and played very well. A couple …
Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Liverpool returned to winning ways as they saw off Aston Villa 2-0 in a scrappy game at Anfield to make it a staggering 24 straight home league wins in a row. But what were the key stats from another dross game in Liverpool’s title procession? Naby. Lad. Liverpool’s attacking display was efficient rather than explosive. Only six shots, only three inside the box and only two big chances, but both big chances were converted to give the Reds the win. …

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool's hopes of ending the season with a 100% Premier League record at Anfield are still alive after they sparked themselves into life against Aston Villa. It was a lethargic, disjointed display for over an hour, but the slickest move of the match brought a breakthrough for Sadio Mane before Curtis Jones' first league goal confirmed defeat for Villa. Here's how the Reds rated: Alisson - 8 As ever, Alisson made a number of hazardous efforts that came his way …
Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Liverpool's title party was brought to an abrupt end after they were walloped 4-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade Chamberlain own goal condemned the full-strength, yet at times shambolic Reds to a heavy defeat. Despite some good chances, the visitors -- many of whom looked to feeling the impact of their league winning celebrations -- fluffed several chances and the hosts capitalized on all their opportunities. …
Reflecting on August's error of judgement

Reflecting on August's error of judgement

"Part of me can't help but think that the side that beat us to win the league by a point have strengthened while we've stood still." That's what I tweeted on 7 August 2019. Manchester City had just broken the bank for a big-name full-back again, this time Juventus' Joao Cancelo. Earlier in the summer, they had brought in Rodri, a coveted 23-year-old who seemed set for a seamless transition into Pep Guardiola's purring midfield. On 27 July, I had …
Liverpool forward expects Reds to continue the fight for points record despite having title wrapped up

Liverpool forward expects Reds to continue the fight for points record despite having title wrapped up

Liverpool's Sadio Mané says The Reds will push on to break whatever records they can this season despite securing Premier League title success last week. Jürgen Klopp's side won the title last Thursday night after Manchester City failed to win at Chelsea. Huge celebrations followed for Klopp, the squad and the backroom staff, as they basked in the glory of ending Liverpool's 30-year wait for another league championship victory. Now, though, Sadio Mané insists Klopp and the team know they …
Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Well they did it. It’s over. Liverpool were officially labelled Premier League Champions as Man City slipped up at Chelsea, losing 2-1 and giving Liverpool a 23 point lead with seven games to go. This is the first time in my lifetime I’ve seen Liverpool win the title and for many of you it’s likely either the first of your life or the first one you’re old enough to remember. And for me, this Liverpool team is unquestionably the best …
