Liverpool 1-0 West Ham: Player Ratings as Reds hang on for crucial win

It wasn't pretty, it wasn't vintage Jurgen Klopp Liverpool, but it got the job done. Sadio Mane's first-half goal gave the Reds a 1-0 win over West Ham United at Anfield. The Reds' goal lived a charmed life, as Pablo Fornals and particularly Manuel Lanzini missed gilt-edged chances to score for the Hammers. However, Liverpool somehow survived to keep the pressure on Man City in the title race, with the Reds just three points behind their rivals now. Here's how …

Trent & The Thiago Effect

Trent & The Thiago Effect

The familiar stats regarding Trent Alexander-Arnold’s assists, appear now in each and every game. His rise to world class status has been truly sensational, and even the most deluded fans (or Gareth Southgate) cannot ignore his exceptional impact on the game any longer. After displacing Nathaniel Clyne some years ago, the slightly built fullback was allowed time to both evolve and make mistakes. As with any trajectory to greatness, issues must always arise so that they can be overcome. This …

What should Liverpool do with Neco Williams?

The international break is an issue for two reasons: first, there’s no football for what feels like forever. Second, people start to judge players on what they’re doing for their national team and then complain that they aren’t replicating these performances at club level.

When Liverpool win their opening Champions League group game 3-2 at Anfield, it tends to be good omen. This was a game that got the juices flowing in a similar vein to that victory over Paris Saint-Germain three years ago, except this time the scoreline gave it the illusion of a contest. Thanks to a Jordan Henderson winner that will universally be called Steven Gerrard-esque, Liverpool can bask in what was, on the whole, a supremely dominant display. Here's how …
