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?

Red Bull Salzburg 0-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Red Bull Salzburg 0-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool are through to the last-16 of the Champions League as group winners after a 2-0 win away to Red Bull Salzburg. How only two goals were scored in the 90 minutes is anyone’s guess; on another day, Mo Salah alone would have had 5. Top of the Premier League and winning the Champions League group is a pretty perfect start to the season for the Reds. As for the individual performances, in goal Alisson had a very solid outing. …
Liverpool's Most Underrated Defender

Liverpool's Most Underrated Defender

Trent Alexander-Arnold is known for a lot of things but defending isn’t one of them. The Liverpool right-back is often pinpointed as a weak link in the backline. Pundits and fans of rival clubs cite the time Marcus Rashford terrorised him during the 2017/18 campaign.  They’ll bring up the times Burnley’s Dwight McNeil and Cardiff City’s Nathaniel Mendez-Laing caused him problems down the right flank. He’s viewed by the masses as an attacking full-back with a number of defensive flaws. …
Klopp's Liverpool Can Look Beyond May For Success

Klopp's Liverpool Can Look Beyond May For Success

The panic has started to set in. The nerves of a proper title race are jangling. Liverpool had a four-point lead at the top of the table, which could have been extended to seven, but instead, four draws in six games see it now as a deficit by a single point, leaving the title race on a knife-edge with nice games to go. Now the reactions have been somewhere between outright panic – people already saying the title is lost …
Key Stats As Reds Miss Golden Opening vs Foxes

Key Stats As Reds Miss Golden Opening vs Foxes

Well, that was bad, wasn’t it? Liverpool dropped points to a side outside the top six for the first time with a disappointing 1-1 draw with Leicester City. But what were the key stats from a cold, and horrible night inside Anfield? Lacklustre Reds Fail To Fire As far as attacking performances go, this was bad. Liverpool mustered just ten shots, compared to their PL average of 15, with just seven of those coming from open play and just four …
Should Liverpool Target This FPL Staple?

Should Liverpool Target This FPL Staple?

Any good Fantasy Premier League squad starts with a couple of £4.0m defenders on your bench to save the big bucks for the Mo Salah’s of the world. If the cheap pickups actually play, let alone produce consistently it’s borderline miraculous. One of this season’s miracle men has been Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Production in the fantasy realm is often irrelevant in the physical world, but in this case it illustrates how the 21 year-old right-back has burst onto the scene. After …
PSG Test A Huge Opportunity For Liverpool

PSG Test A Huge Opportunity For Liverpool

Liverpool’s away European form under Jürgen Klopp has been incredibly bang or bust. For every 5-0 win in Portugal there’s a 2-0 defeat in Belgrade. Whilst some of the best performances of Klopp’s tenure have been away from home in Europe, some of the worst have also come there. So far this season, the Reds have been atrocious away from Anfield in Europe, with their 1-0 defeat to Napoli a shambolic attacking display, which was quickly out-stunk by a disgraceful …
Liverpool 2-0 Fulham: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 2-0 Fulham: Who was man of the match?

It wasn't the rout many would have hoped for given Fulham's near-historic defensive woes, but after the horrors of their trip to Belgrade, victory still brought sweet relief. In truth, Liverpool were happy to cruise into the international break once Mohamed Salah had fired them in front shortly before half-time, with Xherdan Shaqiri's subsequent strike giving them the breathing space they needed to comfortably see the game out. The Reds made it nine wins from their opening twelve, and they …
Trent Alexander-Arnold Urgently Needs Bigger Pockets

Trent Alexander-Arnold Urgently Needs Bigger Pockets

Almost two years ago to the day, Trent Alexander-Arnold was one of the youngest players on the pitch as he created the opening goal, scored to put his side 4-0 ahead and was booked just before half time for half time in an all-action right-back performance for Liverpool U23 against Tottenham U23. He dominated the flank against the two Joe’s - Pritchard and Muscatt - with the game finishing 6-2 to the Reds. At this point Trent wasn’t so much …
Liverpool 3-0 Southampton: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool have made their best ever start to a Premier League season and, in truth, they have done so at about 50% of their overall capacity. The Reds cruised into a 3-0 first-half lead against the Saints and were able to comfortably see it out after the break. All a likely bored Alisson Becker really had to do was dive low to his right to deny Charlie Austin a late consolation. Southampton passed the ball well at times but never …
