Best games of 2019/20: Liverpool 2 - 0 Manchester United

As sport across the world continues to quite rightly take a back-seat, it provides a perfect platform to revel in some of Liverpool's finest moments of the season to date. While it may only provide a small silver lining to what are undoubtedly dark days, there's not a lot better than thinking back to some memorable fixtures in this glittering season so far. Last time, I focused on Liverpool's 0 - 4 Boxing Day bullying of Leicester City, but this …

How Would Luis Suarez Fit Into This Liverpool FC Side?

While it’s practically impossible to improve on the kind of perfection that this Liverpool team has embodied over the last two years...it’s always fun to fantasise, isn’t it? So with that being said, here’s a Liverpool legend that might just fit into the greatest LFC side of our generation Liverpool's electric front three of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino have cut a swathe through both English and European football over the past three seasons. In this time frame, …

Best games of 2019/20: Leicester 0 - 4 Liverpool

The current authority-imposed hiatus from football due to the ever-saddening Coronavirus outbreak gives us all time to reflect on a plethora of subjects. Inevitably, for those obsessed with football and the thought of Liverpool finally claiming that Premier League title, thoughts turn to some of the Reds' stand-out performances of what has been a marvellous season. There have been so many moments of magic and significance that it's impossible to say one moment trumps all others, but for me (and …
Salah v TAA – Who is Liverpool’s TRUE ‘MVP’ of 2019/20?

Salah v TAA – Who is Liverpool’s TRUE ‘MVP’ of 2019/20?

In real terms, the only ‘contest’ involving Liverpool now is an internal one—namely, the identity of who becomes the club’s latest Player of the Season. But who deserves it more? We highlight two main candidates, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and Mohammed Salah as the prime outfield contenders. ‘TAA’ – Already up there with Gerrard? Underdog stories within sport come in many forms, with the legendary Champions League final comeback of 2005 and last year’s two-legged fightback versus Barcelona being Liverpool’s standout contributions this …
Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

Old problems keep coming back to haunt Liverpool

It was a night that not many Liverpool fans will want to think about for too much longer. It was a humbling and rare defeat at the hands of Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid that perhaps prematurely ended the Red's defence of their much adored European Cup. While the performance in the first leg in Spain left a lot to be desired in terms of pace and attacking threat, Klopp's men certainly dialled this up to 11 at Anfield and almost …
Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Tactical Preview: Liverpool vs. Atletico Madrid

Atletico Madrid’s 1-0 victory at the Wanda Metropolitano heralded the end of Liverpool’s phenomenal winning streak. The performance itself was more concerning than the defeat though, with Liverpool merely creating eight chances (four of which were shots from outside of the box), one Big Chance, but not managing to get a single one of those on target. Liverpool’s 0.6 xG was one of the lowest generated in recent memory. The Atletico Madrid defensive shape was immovable and robust but rarely …
Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool move to within 9 points of the Premier League title after a 2-1 win over Bournemouth at Anfield. Once again, it wasn’t the most convincing of victories, with the referee and VAR conspiring to award Bournemouth a controversial opening goal. The Mentality Monsters returned, though, turning the game on its head to come away with all three points. In goal, Adrian replaced the injured Alisson and the Spaniard had to put his mistake at Chelsea quickly out of his …

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth - Player Ratings as scratchy Reds go one step closer to the title

Liverpool beat Bournemouth 2-1 at Anfield in the early kickoff to go to within three wins of the Premier League title, after goals from Mo Salah and Sadio Mane ensured that Callum Wilson's early goal for the Cherries was nothing but a little blip on the road. The Reds were well below-par, though, and need to be much better on Wednesday night when Atletico Madrid come to Anfield, in the Champions League Round of 16 second leg. Here's how each …
Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool Regain Winning Ways With Bournemouth Victory

Liverpool came from a goal behind to register their first win in three games in all competitions with a 2-1 victory over Bournemouth at Anfield. Callum Wilson gave the relegation threatened visitors the lead in controversial style, when the striker clearly pushed Joe Gomez in the back in the build up to his goal, with VAR inexplicably allowing the effort to stand. However, goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane gave the Reds the win, despite a nervy and slack …
4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

4231 The Antidote to Liverpool's Recent Woes

Liverpool's recent form -- if not totally reflected in results -- has taken a nosedive. Losing 3 of their last 5 games across three competitions, the Reds have looked slow of both body and mind, despite having a 10 day respite from games thanks to the Premier League's winter break. Victories over Norwich -- the game which preceded the break -- and West Ham United -- the first league game after their temporary hiatus -- came in spite of laboured …
