Player ratings as Liverpool succumb to Villa Park embarrassment

Player ratings as Liverpool succumb to Villa Park embarrassment

Where to start with that one? Aston Villa 7-2 Liverpool. That's *SEVEN* goals for the team that escaped relegation last season due to a goal line technology error, against the Champions of England. Not sure if this puts my #ProperRed status at risk, but I laughed through that. A lot. Listen, losing big games is horrible. Losing games you deserve to win, games against rivals, close games. All rubbish stuff. Getting spanked by Aston Villa, courtesy of a hat-trick of …
Hot Shot Jota Gave Glimpse Into Bright Future

Hot Shot Jota Gave Glimpse Into Bright Future

Diogo Jota marked his Liverpool Premier League debut with a goal in the Reds' 3-1 defeat at Arsenal. Latching onto a David Luiz header, the Portuguese international deftly controlled the ball before dispatching a half volley accurately into the low corner past Bernd Leno. https://twitter.com/LFC/status/1310716961869963264?s=20 The former Wolves attacker came close twice earlier, hitting the side netting after receiving a Mohamed Salah pass and the Egyptian wasn't as selfless on another occasion when he took the ball off Jota's toe …

Two New Signings, Two Statement Victories - September 2020, The Month That Was

THIAGO ... THIAGO ALCANTARA!!! The summer's most anticipated, or drawn out, depending on your point of view, transfer has been complete. News broke late of an evening that Liverpool had agreed a fee for Spanish midfield wizard Thiago Alcantara, and while we had long expected Thiago Thursday we instead got Thiago Friday. And fucking hell, it was fun. But before we start drooling over him again, let's go back to the start of the month. Liverpool got themselves ready for …

Tactical Breakdown: Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

Tactical Breakdown: Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool

An uncharacteristically error-strewn opening game left Liverpool much to atone for. Against Chelsea, the side played with fanatic verve and doctrinal discipline, banishing the demons that had led to questions over Liverpool's commitment and ability to retain the title. This was, by a distance, the best Liverpool have played since March, six long months ago. Tactically, the instruction from the manager, Jürgen Klopp, was crystal clear: press high, and press hard. On paper, Liverpool's 4-3-3 was balanced against Chelsea's 4-3-3, …

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Key stats from an imposing victory

Liverpool capped off a glorious weekend with a commanding triumph against potential title rivals Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, maintaining their 100% start to the season. Here are some of the standout facts and figures from a key early win against Frank Lampard's 10 men. Outstanding Fabinho unruffled at centre-half Back in February 2019, Virgil van Dijk's suspension and Joe Gomez's injury forced Fabinho to slot-in as a centre-half when Bayern Munich visited Anfield. He was up against Robert Lewandowski and, …
Salah's Swan Song?

Salah's Swan Song?

After Mohamed Salah started the 2020/21 campaign with a red-hot performance against Leeds, is it time for us Liverpool fans to recognise the real possibility that this season may be his last at the club? Salah joined Liverpool from Serie A side AS Roma in the summer of 2017 after Jürgen Klopp was convinced he was the right fit for his squad by The Reds' scouting team. Speaking just months after Salah's arrival at the club, Klopp said:
"Our scouting …
Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

Liverpool Overcome Leeds To Start Title Defence With Win

A Mohamed Salah hattrick saw Liverpool begin their Premier League title defence with a 4-3 victory over Leeds at Anfield. The Egyptian slotted two penalties, as well as a perfectly executed volley to add to Virgil van Dijk's towering header against Marcelo Bielsa's newly promoted Whites who equalised three times, through Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich. Although looking uncharacteristically shaky at the back, the Reds -- who conceded to all three of Leeds' shots on goal -- crafted …

He Didn't Kostas Much - August 2020, The Month That Was

August began with Liverpool unveiling their new kit, the first one released under their new deal with Nike. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Virgil Van Dijk and the boys unboxed the kit and their enthusiasm for the kit was quite striking. Fire! Swoosh! Flamey! Robbo, pay your bills man! Liverpool did a signing!! Rejoice! The Reds landed Kostas Tsimikas for a fee in the region of £11.5mil, which looks like a bargain for an international left back with Champions League pedigree. Especially when …
Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Could Suarez be Liverpool's modern-day Litmanen?

Life comes at you fast as a footballer, with your reputation never too far from taking a battering. One minute you can be the flavour of the month, earning an infinite amount of praise, and the next you can be a washed-up has-been who has little else to offer. Luis Suarez finds himself in that very position, having experienced a tough season at Barcelona that ultimately looks like sealing his exit from the club. Only six years ago he was …
