Liverpool's No.11 raced back to help out his team, playing his part in them eventually clearing the danger and preventing what looked like a potential goal at one point. It was one gigantic middle finger to …
Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

Seven Games From Glory For Liverpool

International breaks are annoying, aren’t they? Fresh off the back of three pulsating Liverpool victories in a week, approaching the back end of the season, ready for the final run-in, and now we get two full weeks of no Liverpool action, and having to watch international teams play largely pointless fixtures against the backdrop of hoping nobody from LFC gets injured. But this article isn’t going to be a gripe at the lack of Liverpool action over the next couple …
