Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves: A Tactical Breakdown

"This was a marvellous tactical battle, but for Nuno Espirito Santo, despite his best efforts, couldn’t quite deliver a surprise in morphing into Nuno Espirito Santa(!!!), but with Liverpool, rather unexpectedly, now four points clear of Manchester City, it seems Christmas may just have come early…" - Wolverhampton 0-2 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown, 23/12/2018
It's remarkable how much, and at the same time, how little has changed in just over a year. Indeed, given Wolves' comeback against Manchester …

Liverpool 1-0 Wolves - Player Ratings as Reds grind out another Anfield win

Of course, the talk will be about VAR. But Liverpool have just won their 18th Premier League game out of  19 this season. They've gone back to 13 points atop the Premier League, after Sadio Mane's first-half goal sealed a 1-0 win over a plucky Wolves side at Anfield. Here's how each player fared for the Reds. Alisson Becker - 7/10 He had one save to make, after an inexplicable Van Dijk error set Jota free. Alisson made that save. …

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

What if...Liverpool Actually Signed Konoplyanka?

Regret’s a funny thing, isn’t it? When any Liverpool fan sees the words “What if?” their thoughts could very easily be drawn back to any of the misfortunes befalling the club since the famed night in Istanbul, over fourteen years ago. That, to any reasonable Red, was the night their team sold their soul to the devil. The last fourteen years has been the payment, staggered in instalments. Of course, they endured Hicks and Gillett; that was perilous and depressing …
Dominant Liverpool Hunt Foxes

Dominant Liverpool Hunt Foxes

Liverpool opened up a thirteen point lead at the top of the Premier League table with a 4-0 way away to second placed Leicester City. A brace from Roberto Firmino, a James Milner penalty and a Trent Alexander Arnold goal crowned a performance of complete dominance, with the Reds imperiously lording over Brendan Rodgers' Foxes. After travelling back from Club World Cup commitments in Doha, there was a school of thought that the European Champions -- who had to endure …
Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

Leicester 0-4 Liverpool: As The Reds Dismantle The Foxes

Before the match, both Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers refused to talk about what this match meant as to the title race. Maybe they both knew what was coming because no one watching this game would have pegged it as a title decider. The gulf in class between Liverpool and Leicester was immense, and the scoreline reflected it. There can be no doubt now that the Reds are the best side in the world and that the Premier League title …
Back-To-Goal Salah Offers Liverpool New Attacking Dimension

Back-To-Goal Salah Offers Liverpool New Attacking Dimension

Mohamed Salah is back. After a few weeks of relatively low-key performances while clearly playing through an ankle injury, the Egyptian has burst back into form and has netted goals in games versus Watford (x2), Bournemouth and Red Bull Salzburg. The most striking feature of Salah's game in recent weeks, though, is how well the forward has linked the play, in the style of a burly old school centre forward. Standing at 5'9, the former Roma flyer is not the …
Liverpool Are World Champions.

Liverpool Are World Champions.

Liverpool claimed their maiden Club World success with a 1-0 after extra time victory over Brazil's Flamengo in Doha. Roberto Firmino scored the game's only goal in the 99th minute, to banish the demons of 1981 and make the Reds the first ever English club to win a continental treble, European Cup, Super Cup and Club World Cup. The European Champions started with the intensity of a team who meant business, despite all the pre match talk of the game …
Liverpool 1-0 Flamengo (AET): Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 1-0 Flamengo (AET): Who was man of the match?

World champions and international treble winners: that has quite the ring to it. Though profligate in front of goal and on the receiving end of some woeful refereeing, Liverpool eventually ran out victorious against Flamengo to cap off a memorable 2019 with more silverware. South America's finest were impressive in the first half but the Reds, who went up a gear from the semifinal as Klopp fielded his strongest side, dominated thereafter and ultimately deserved the victory. But who impressed …

Player Ratings as Liverpool are crowned Champions of the World

Well it wasn’t easy, but Liverpool are Champions of the World for the first time in their history. It was far from a stellar performance, but once again the Reds did enough to get the victory.  Now, let’s see how each player performed individually. Alisson - 6 A few poor passes and didn’t look as assured on the ball as usual. However, he made a couple of important saves. Alexander-Arnold - 6 Got caught out a couple of times defensively …
