Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Player ratings as Reds lift their game to secure three points

Liverpool's hopes of ending the season with a 100% Premier League record at Anfield are still alive after they sparked themselves into life against Aston Villa. It was a lethargic, disjointed display for over an hour, but the slickest move of the match brought a breakthrough for Sadio Mane before Curtis Jones' first league goal confirmed defeat for Villa. Here's how the Reds rated: Alisson - 8 As ever, Alisson made a number of hazardous efforts that came his way …

Drunk, sober or hungover? How Liverpool rated in the 4-0 loss to Manchester City!

Hahaha, you wouldn't actually believe how pleased I was when that stoppage time Riyad Mahrez goal was ruled out by VAR. I don't know about you, reader, but 5-0 looks so much worse than 4-0. You're halfway to ten goals at 5-0 up! Anyway, here's my first ratings piece since Liverpool were declared champions. In classic Liverpool style, we lost 4-0 to our closest competitors. I don't really want to write 600 words on why Andy Robertson deserves a 2/10 …
Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Liverpool's title party was brought to an abrupt end after they were walloped 4-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade Chamberlain own goal condemned the full-strength, yet at times shambolic Reds to a heavy defeat. Despite some good chances, the visitors -- many of whom looked to feeling the impact of their league winning celebrations -- fluffed several chances and the hosts capitalized on all their opportunities. …
Reflecting on August's error of judgement

Reflecting on August's error of judgement

"Part of me can't help but think that the side that beat us to win the league by a point have strengthened while we've stood still." That's what I tweeted on 7 August 2019. Manchester City had just broken the bank for a big-name full-back again, this time Juventus' Joao Cancelo. Earlier in the summer, they had brought in Rodri, a coveted 23-year-old who seemed set for a seamless transition into Pep Guardiola's purring midfield. On 27 July, I had …

Trent Alexander-Arnold gives his take on Neco Williams' Premier League debut

Liverpool's young full-back Neco Williams made his Premier League debut last Wednesday night against Crystal Palace and Trent Alexander-Arnold was very impressed with the academy graduate. Williams came on late in the 4-0 win at Anfield over Roy Hodson's Eagles. The right-back had some great touches and even managed to get a shot on target after some nice footwork in the box.

Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace: Observations as Reds remind us why they're champions

109 days after Liverpool last won a game of football, you could almost be forgiven for forgetting just how mighty Jurgen Klopp's title brigade really is. But this masterful performance reminded us why the Reds are a mere speck in the distance in this Premier League title race. After a steady restart against Everton, Liverpool roared back to their best, and Crystal Palace were rendered their plaything. Liverpool set their own tempo in an empty Anfield The pace of most …

How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

How The Power of Anfield Helped Liverpool Crush Barcelona

Even before kick-off, it was apparent that the Anfield crowd was ready. A healthy crowd gathered outside the stadium -- as is customary on big European nights -- to soundtrack the team's bus' entrance, defiantly lifting their player's morale when it appeared to all that they were flogging a dead horse. 3-0 down to Barcelona from the first leg, Liverpool -- who were shorn of 2/3's of their potent attacking trio, Mohamed Salah, and Roberto Firmino -- were given a …
