Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Chelsea 2-0 Liverpool: Player Ratings

Liverpool get knocked out in the Fifth Round of the FA Cup by Chelsea after a 2-0 loss at Stamford Bridge. Another really poor and disappointing performance from the Reds as they fall to their third defeat in four games, in three different competitions. Adrian - 5 You can’t make mistakes like the one he made for the Willian goal, but made a couple of very good stops as well. Neco Williams - 5 Started brightly and delivered a couple …

Odsonne Edouard: Liverpool's Potential Back Up Forward

Liverpool's front three, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, are world renowned for their quality and on field compatibility. Behind them in the Reds' pecking order are Xherdan Shaqiri and Divock Origi, both of whom played their roles -- with the Belgian especially prominent in the march to Madrid -- in the club's sixth European Cup triumph last June. However, due to injury and inconsistency of performance when selected, neither Shaqiri nor Origi have truly grasped their chances and …

Reasons why Liverpool can sign Werner, Sancho and Havertz

It feels as though Liverpool are the only top team not allowed to have more than eleven good players. Whenever there’s a link to a top player, the media and countless pundits pipe up to claim they’d struggle to break into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI so they shouldn’t be signed.  It’s happened recently with Timo Werner. He’s been linked with a move to Merseyside for the best part of three years now but reports claiming he’s set to leave RB …

Shrewsbury Town 2-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as sloppy Reds are punished and taken to replay

In the end, Liverpool were probably lucky they didn't lose the game on the day. Jurgen Klopp will be annoyed at the prospect of having to play a replay against Shrewsbury as well, but this was the least that the hosts deserved, as the lax Reds were pegged back from 2-0 up, as the game finished 2-2. Curtis Jones opened the scoring in the first half, and the Reds were 2-0 up 30 seconds after the restart, with Donald Love's …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Key stats as Reds refuse to relent

And so the march continues. There were spells in this frantic contest where Liverpool's unbeaten run looked in real peril, but at the ground where their title 'rivals' Manchester City so spectacularly collapsed, they held firm before snatching victory. It's unlikely that the Premier League has ever seen a side with this capacity to grind out results. In that respect, they are the envy of the footballing, if not the entire sporting, world. The headliners Liverpool have simply forgotten what …
Wolves 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

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

Those dastardly Reds have done it again; the pesky mentality monsters have stolen 3 points at Molineux after a very below-par performance. Roberto Firmino’s late winner puts Liverpool a remarkable 16 points clear at the top of the Premier League with a game in hand. In the net, Alisson could do nothing about the goal. It was an excellent header into the far corner from Raul Jimenez after a good delivery from Adama. Aside from that, our gloved Brazilian dealt …

Wolves 1-2 Liverpool - Player Ratings as Bobby saves yet another away day

And, breathe. Liverpool won 2-1 again. Frankly, it was better when the Reds were keeping clean sheets. But, in the end, the mentality monsters prevailed. Roberto Firmino scored a late winner with a lovely finish past Rui Patricio to give the Reds the win, after Raul Jimenez cancelled out Jordan Henderson's opener. Here's how each player fared. Alisson Becker - 9/10 A couple of massive saves from Traore and Jimenez to keep it at 1-1, right after Wolves had equalised. …
Relentless Liverpool Tame Wolves Late On

Relentless Liverpool Tame Wolves Late On

Liverpool kept their Premier League winning streak alive with a hard fought 2-1 victory away to Wolves. Goals in either half from Jordan Henderson and Roberto Firmino -- either side of a Raul Jimenez headed equaliser -- sufficed for the Reds in what is likely to be one of their most difficult games for the remainder of the league campaign. The European Champions conceded their first goal in over a month, but the nature of the win -- where they …
Liverpool's Shrewsbury Assignment Ideal Preparation For Minamino

Liverpool's Shrewsbury Assignment Ideal Preparation For Minamino

Liverpool's reward for defeating Everton in the last round of the F.A. Cup is a trip away to Shrewsbury Town on January 26th. The League One side qualified for their fourth round glamour tie against the European champions after defeating Championship Bristol City 1-0 this past midweek in a replay; the initial tie finished 1-1 away at Ashton Gate. Judging from his previous selections in the cup, Jurgen Klopp will, in all certainty, select a team composed mainly of young …
