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 …
Gomez Injury Leaves The Door Wide Open At Right Back Amid Crucial Run

Gomez Injury Leaves The Door Wide Open At Right Back Amid Crucial Run

International breaks are the bane of every football fans' existence. They mark a drab period bereft of football, entertaining football at least, in which clubs are left to sweat over the fitness of their star players amid a crucial league run. Thankfully for Liverpool, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and the in-form Andrew Robertson all came through unscathed alongside a number of other first teamers. However, there was one casualty as Joe Gomez faces up to four weeks out with an …
Liverpool Player Ratings As They Batter Porto 5-0

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Batter Porto 5-0

THE REDS. THE ABSOLUTE REDS. These Reds, our Reds, your Reds, my Reds. What a night. Liverpool return to the Champions League knockout stages after 9 years with the style and swagger of a side who had won the whole thing for nine straight years. Breaking records, breaking Portuguese hearts and breaking the net, it was a night to savour. Here's how the players rated. Goal for Porto? Nah, you're alright. Loris Karius (7): Giving him seven and not six seems …
Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

Can Liverpool compete on both Domestic & European fronts?

As Liverpool's fixture list becomes increasingly congested with the Reds facing the prospect of a game every three days or so, the time is right to ask whether Liverpool can compete on both domestic and European fronts. With Man City over 10 points ahead of Liverpool it is unrealistic to suggest we can win the league but there is no reason why we can't be aiming to finish as high as second. A finish outside of the top 4 would, …
Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

Trent Alexander-Arnold: A learning curve

One of the feel good stories surrounding Liverpool FC recently has been the rise of young scouser Trent Alexander-Arnold. For years there was a constant stream of local lads making it into the first team and going on to become cult heroes or world class players, the academy down the years has produced the likes of Michael Owen, Jamie Carragher, Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and most notably Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Since the debut of our former captain; the well …
Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Will Klopp Trust Liverpool's Youngsters to Deliver Next Season?

Having watched Klopp very closely over the past year and a half, it has become clear that there is one trait that he values above anything else and that's trust. A player can have all the ability in the world but if the German doesn't trust him to fit into his system and to play the way he wants them to then you simply won't have much of a future at Anfield. Klopp is so particular about both his defensive …
