Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

Liverpool 2 Wolves 0 - Reds On Top for Seconds

And then there was one. One last Sunday to say our prayers and hope Manchester City open the door for Liverpool. It had been eight straight wins since a 0-0 draw at Goodison left just enough slack for City to overtake The Reds. The consensus was then that we would have to win out. A win against Wolves would accomplish that, but City have not cooperated. The only pause in their pursuit of a four trophy season has been in …

Newcastle 2 Liverpool 3 - Rafa's Red Carpet Left Much To Be Desired

When the time comes, you'll be down in the crypts. They're the safest place to be. We'll put you in the crypt, where it's safest. Rafa will roll out the red carpet for Liverpool.

Just a casual stroll up to Tyneside without Bobby Firmino, Naby Keita or Joel Matip with the Premier League title still in …

Match Report: Salah, Mané, Liverpool Top Every Table

There’s a tradition in U.S. where high school (American) football teams will schedule Sister Mary’s School for the Blind for their homecoming weekend so they can show off a bit in front of their girlfriends before the big dance. This… was that. Where was Huddersfield Town in 2013/14? This is the match we wanted Crystal Palace to be. An already relegated side, H-Town capitulated faster than you could crack open your beer with Naby Keita scoring off of a pretty …

Player Ratings as Reds have easy night in demolishing Huddersfield

After the pain and agony of recent victories, where Liverpool had to wait for the goals, it was nice to have a night like that. This season has been a running demonstration of a Huddersfield squad just not good enough to cut it in the Premier League, and they were put to the sword at Anfield, as the Reds toyed with them for a 5-0 win. They were off, up and running in 16 seconds, no less, when Naby Keita …

Player Ratings as plucky Reds stay alive in title race: Saints 1 Liverpool 3

Phew. Breathe! Liverpool didn't make it easy for themselves. They haven't in a while, have they? But at this stage of the season, what matters is the result. That final result leads 3-1 in the favour of the Reds, as they beat a brave Southampton at St. Mary's. Shane Long put Southampton in the lead, but the Reds equalised before half-time, through Naby Keita's first goal for the club. Mo Salah and Jordan Henderson scored late in the game, to …

Observations as Liverpool Show Tenacity to Dismiss Talk of Losing Their Bottle

Liverpool ensured they remain hot on the tails of title rivals Manchester City with a 4-2 win against Burnley on Sunday afternoon. Despite the blistering conditions, the wind wouldn’t impede Jurgen Klopp’s side this time out, with braces from Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino enough to overturn the early deficit. Indeed, it was hardly the best start for the Reds, with another contentious refereeing decision threatening to deliver a potentially pivotal twist in the title race. A day after Raheem …

Player ratings as the Reds go all 2013-14 on us

I've got a good friend who supports Crystal Palace. If I didn't, I'd be doing rain dances in the garden in the hope they get relegated. Never mind the owl that manages them, they're actually an alright club. Passionate fans, decent football, the legend that is Mamadou Sakho. I just can't hack playing them, I'm only 20 and my heart feels like it's about to blow. Struggling to get my head around that one? We concede three but I can …
