Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Benfica 1 - 3 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 A relative spectator in the first half, with only a couple of minor chances created. Was a lot busier after the break, as the home sides ramped up their efforts. Could do nothing for the goal conceded, and was assured as Liverpool weathered the storm. Trent Alexander-Arnold 7.5 Looked confident from the off, with a willingness to show strength at both ends of the field. 34 minutes …

Should Liverpool be interested in Youri Tielemans?

Youri Tielemans is on the move this summer. According to reports, the midfield maestro is set to be available for as little as £25million due to his contract situation. The 24-year-old, once touted as a £60million-rated midfielder, has just 12 months left on his deal and Leicester do not want to lose him on a free.  The Foxes reportedly paid £32million to make his loan move from Monaco a permanent one. If that is accurate, they’re going to be making …
Observations: The Reds, like a boulder rolling down a hill.

Observations: The Reds, like a boulder rolling down a hill.

Against Arsenal, Liverpool had one of their slowest first halves of the season. It seemed like the Gunners had a real foothold in the game, and although they didn't create much, neither did Liverpool. But we will not be stopped. No matter what you throw at these boys, they'll plant their feet, grit their teeth, and walk on. It was another superb line-up today, as we are slowly getting used to having week in and week out. Even the sight …

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Arsenal 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 8.5 A pretty routine first half for the giant Brazilian, with possession of the ball more apparent than anything else. Made a great stop early in the second half as the game opened up. Didn’t have much to do after that, but his moments were once again critical. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.0 Martinelli certainly gave him worrying moments in the first half, with his smart movement. A …
A Timely Reboot

A Timely Reboot

Liverpool finally lost a game at Anfield this week, with their second leg tie against Inter ending in defeat. In a period where Jürgen Klopp has had no choice but to rotate his stellar cast of performers, it was inevitable that a slight bump in the road would occur. It reminded me of a time where Blackburn Rovers once lost to Liverpool, before immediately celebrating their Premier League title win. No Rovers fan cared about the loss that day, and …

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report

Liverpool 0 - 1 Inter Milan - Match Report The first half was a game of frustration for both sides, with neither giving much away through the opening period. Both Joel Matip and Virgil Van Dijk could have scored from tremendous Trent deliveries, and Alisson was alert enough to parry away a good cross come shot from Hakan Çalhanoğlu. These great teams appeared intent on cancelling each other out, which of course suited the reds far more. The second half …

Liverpool 3-1 Norwich City - Player Ratings as Reds come from behind to win

It wasn't the stroll many thought that it would be, but Liverpool continued their winning ways, with a 3-1 victory over Norwich City. After a goalless first half, Milot Rashica's shot deflected cruelly off Joel Matip to give the visitors the lead. Jurgen Klopp had to respond, and he did with a double change introducing Thiago and Divock Origi, who were both impressive as Sadio Mane and Mo Salah scored to turn the game around, before Luis Diaz scored his …

Inter Milan 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings

Inter Milan 0 - 2 Liverpool - The Player Ratings Alisson Becker - 7.5 The worlds finest stopper, but it was the bar that saved him on 17 mins. A busy second half for his defensive line, and command led when needed. Trent Alexander Arnold - 7.5 The assist machine nearly added to that tally on 14 mins, with a brilliant free kick. A good effort on 28 mins went just wide, as he started to grow into the game. …
