Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Newcastle United: Who was Man of the Match?

Another win at Anfield for the handsome Reds. Even when going a goal down I doubt any Liverpool fan was particularly concerned, 3 points was always likely to be the result. That’s 5 wins from 5 Premier League games now with a trip to Naples up next in the Champions’ League. The defence didn’t have a whole lot of defending to do. The Jetro Willems goal could have been avoided in the build-up as an offside trap seemed to go …
Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool's Money Factory

Liverpool sold academy striker Bobby Duncan to Fiorentina after the Serie A side made an offer to sign the 18-year-old permanently. The Reds will reputedly pocket €2million upfront with a 20% sell-on fee for the former Manchester City underage player. Duncan wasn't the only player out the Anfield exit door on European Transfer Deadline Day. Ryan Kent joined Rangers -- who he spent last season on loan at -- for a fee in the region of £7,000,000. The English duo's …
Trent Alexander-Arnold hopes Reds will get into the clean sheet habit

Trent Alexander-Arnold hopes Reds will get into the clean sheet habit

Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold was delighted with The Reds' first clean sheet of the season at Burnley and hopes more will follow after the international break. Jurgen Klopp's side won 3-0 at Turf Moor, keeping Burnley's Ashley Barnes and Chris Wood at bay for the 90 minutes. Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, Alexander-Arnold said the poor pre-season results were now behind them after four league wins from four.
“Obviously our results in pre-season weren’t the best and the performances weren’t the best but …
Tactical Analysis: Van Dijk Shines as Reds Pass Turf Moore Test

Tactical Analysis: Van Dijk Shines as Reds Pass Turf Moore Test

The stage was set for Liverpool to drop their first points of their new campaign. No sooner had the referee ushered the ball towards the centre circle to kickstart proceedings, than Sean Dyche was seen gesticulating towards his players to kick the ball long towards the Liverpool defence. Why? Well, as Sean Dyche pointed out without any concern for subtlety, the sun was shining directly into the eyes of Liverpool's defence and keeper. The message was clear: hit early long …
Liverpool Return To Summit With Resounding Win

Liverpool Return To Summit With Resounding Win

Liverpool broke a club record league winning streak with their 13th successive league victory in their 3-0 win over Burnley at Turf Moor.  A Chris Wood own goal, as well as strikes from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino was enough to send the Reds back to the top of the table.  Manager Jurgen Klopp kept faith in the team that beat Arsenal and his players rewarded him with a performance of dominance and efficiency in a game that was flagged …
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Who was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Who was Man of the Match?

A pretty comfortable 3-1 victory over Arsenal. A result we’ve come to expect over the last few years at Anfield against the Gunners. There were some impressive performances all over the pitch for the Reds as we go top of the table with the only 100% record in the Premier League. Starting at the back, Trent Alexander-Arnold looked pretty good both defensively and offensively. His crosses weren’t quite at the incredible standard we know he’s capable of, but he provided …

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal - Player Ratings as Reds stroll past Gunners

Liverpool made it three wins out of three to start the Premier League season, with a superb 3-1 win at Anfield, on an evening when the Reds were dominant for large parts of the game. After a first half that Jurgen Klopp's side controlled, Joel Matip gave them the lead with a superb header off a Trent Alexander-Arnold corner. Mo Salah scored an early second-half brace to put the game beyond Arsenal, even as Lucas Torreira grabbed the Gunners a …
Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Fabinho's influence on the Liverpool midfield

Despite being European champions, Liverpool have a squad full of divisive players. Some are undervalued and some are simply misunderstood. There are a number who tick both boxes and one such player is Fabinho.  The Brazilian doesn’t score goals. He doesn’t assist them either. He doesn’t play 70-yard crossfield passes that are shown on the Match of the Day highlight reel and he’s not the sort to dance past four opposition players before picking out a team-mate. The former Monaco …
Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Positives For Reds Despite Community Shield Defeat

Liverpool lost the seasonal curtain-raiser, the Community Shield, 5-4 on penalties to Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday after the game ended 1-1 in normal time. A powerful Joel Matip header cancelled out Raheem Sterling's opener, in a game that -- despite some fans' indifference to the value of the Community Shield -- neither side, judging by the tempo and commitment exhibited by both teams, would have wanted to lose. Despite the "loss", there were many positives for Jurgen Klopp …
The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

The lack of full back cover at Liverpool is an uncalculated risk

Liverpool Football Club currently has quite possibly the best full-back pair in the world. Last season was record-breaking for both Trent-Alexander Arnold and Andrew Robertson. Shattering the assists records, while covering the flanks of the best defence in the league. Oh, and they also won the European Cup in one of the most memorable campaigns in recent history. It doesn't get better than that. We are a week away from the first league game of 2019/2020 and to the surprise …
