Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool Stumble To Newcastle Draw

Liverpool remain top of the Premier League table, despite a 0-0 draw with Newcastle United at St James' Park. A combination of bad finishing from the visitors -- an aspect of the game where Mohamed Salah was particularly guilty -- and the saves of Karl Darlow kept the hosts in the contest as the Reds failed to prize open their low block defence on enough occasions. Newcastle had opportunities themselves and Fabinho saved Nat Phillips blushes when he diverted a …
Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

Crystal Palace 0-7 Liverpool: Who was man of the match?

The dreaded Wednesday night/Saturday lunchtime turnaround. Crystal Palace away. No victories on the road since September. The top scorer starting on the bench. A lethargic performance was surely in the offing. But no. Liverpool dismantled Crystal Palace in a fashion that was almost laughable. Symbolic redemption for their humiliation at Villa Park, this victory moves them six points clear of the pack (for 24 hours at least). Never has the outlook been more ominous for this season's challengers. Let's reflect …

"I kept it quite close to my chest" - Alexander-Arnold on the build-up to his debut as Liverpool captain

Liverpool lad Trent Alexander-Arnold captained his boyhood team for the first time on Wednesday night as The Reds earned a point in Denmark. The 22-year-old right-back wore the captain's armband in the absence of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Virgil van Dijk. Alexander-Arnold must have thought it was going to be a winning debut as captain after Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead inside the first minute. However, FC Midtjylland showed that last week's 1-1 draw away to Atalanta was …
Liverpool Drew In Denmark

Liverpool Drew In Denmark

Liverpool drew their Champions League group stage campaign with a 1-1 draw away to Midtjylland. An early Mohamed Salah gave the Reds the lead before the hosts levelled proceedings through an Alexander Scholz penalty. More VAR drama ensued as Liverpool were denied what appeared a perfectly legitimate late winner through Takumi Minamino, but the video assistant referee -- mistaking Sadio Mane's arm for that of one of the hosts defenders -- disallowed the Japan international's goal for handball in the …
Klopp's post-match update on Trent Alexander-Arnold injury

Klopp's post-match update on Trent Alexander-Arnold injury

Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp is today waiting on the scan results of the calf injury sustained by right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold on Sunday. Alexander-Arnold went off injured after 63 minutes of The Reds' 1-1 draw at Manchester City in the Premier League. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead with an early penalty before City's Gabriel Jesus equalised before half-time. The home side then had a penalty of their own in the 42nd minute after a very harsh handball decision against Joe …
Player ratings as Liverpool take a point from the Etihad

Player ratings as Liverpool take a point from the Etihad

The Liverpool fan-base were surprised by Jurgen Klopp as he went for both Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota against Manchester City, the jury remaining out on whether it was the right decision as the Reds drew 1-1 at the Etihad Stadium. Mohamed Salah's penalty got Klopp's men off to the perfect start after Sadio Mane was fouled by Kyle Walker, with Gabriel Jesus' equaliser proving to be the only other goal in the game as Kevin de Bruyne missed a …
Lacklustre Liverpool Labour To Win

Lacklustre Liverpool Labour To Win

Goals from Diogo Jota and Mohamed Salah sealed a 2-0 win for Liverpool over Midtjylland at Anfield in Group D of the Champions. After making five changes from the victory over Sheffield United -- with only the back five and Jota retained -- a performance devoid of any fluency still yielded a win, which was sealed by substitute Salah's penalty. The slow start to proceedings from the hosts wasn't surprising, given the rhythm sapping number of personnel changes from the …
Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Ajax 0-1 Liverpool: Player ratings as Reds battle to three Group D points

Liverpool ended their run of three games without a win by doggedly beating Ajax. Nicolas Tagliafico's clumsy own-goal was ultimately the difference, though Davy Klaassen hit the post and Liverpool spurned opportunities of their own in the closing stages. Here's how the Reds rated in Amsterdam... Adrian - 7 It was far from a confident start - the mix-up with Gomez and the flashbacks to the howler at Southampton - and the finish was nervy as well, a flapped punch …
Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Reds to return to Melwood after international break

Liverpool will welcome back all of their international players in the next day or two after last night's UEFA Nations League action. Some players - such as Caoimhín Kelleher and Divock Origi - didn't get any game time on Wednesday night. Kelleher and Origi were unused substitutes for Ireland and Belgium respectively. Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum were in action in the Netherlands' 1-1 draw away to Italy. For England, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson continued his journey back to …
Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Player ratings as Reds prove too good for Gunners

Liverpool 3-1 Arsenal: Player ratings as Reds prove too good for Gunners

Jurgen Klopp got the better of Mikel Arteta at the third time of asking as Liverpool continued their perfect start with a 3-1 win against Arsenal. Sadio Mané, Andrew Robertson and home debutant Diogo Jota were on target for the defending champions, securing victory after Alexandre Lacazette was presented with the opener in all-too-familiar fashion. This is how the Reds rated. Alisson Becker - 7 Supporters were sweating on the Brazilian's fitness in the build-up, and he demonstrated his worth …
