Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Liverpool Top League with Cherry Crush

Waiting for the line-up card to come out has become one of the most suspenseful parts of the Liverpool experience in recent weeks. Most of the anticipation surrounds the season's long wait for Jurgen Klopp to actually field his best eleven, or what the majority of us assume is his best eleven. Injuries to Joe Gomez and Sadio Mané took that option away, but on December 8th, away at Bournemouth, Jurgen Norbert Klopp finally played the Fabinho, Naby Keita, and …
Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Liverpool Player Ratings as Salah sizzles Bournemouth

Mohamed Salah reminds the Premier League exactly what he's all about and the Reds are top of the Premier League, for a few hours at least. Not a bad way to start the weekend. Bournemouth aren't a bad side and the 4-0 scoreline doesn't really reflect the gulf between the two teams, but Liverpool were, and are, better. Salah's three goals combined with own goal of the season from Steve Cook keeps the unbeaten run going. Over to you, Manchester …

Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

Gomez Injured as Reds Bounce Burnley

I know this is the Burnley match report, but do we really have to stop talking about the derby? Pickford... Origi... man, that was great. Klopp was forced into two changes for mid-week and made a five more just for the hell of it. Moreno and Origi started due to injury worries for Robertson and Mané respectively. Henderson and Milner started because Brexit means Brexit. And finally, Keita, Shaqiri and Sturridge started because… this is Burnley away and Klopp is …

Player Ratings As Much Changed Liverpool Fight Back In Style

Jurgen Klopp made an array of changes for Liverpool's midweek trip to Burnley, with Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino all out of the starting eleven while Divock Origi was rewarded for his last-gasp winner against Everton at the weekend. Cork's opening goal for the home side put the Reds on the back foot, from which it looked incredibly hard to fight back and earn three points to keep up pressure on Manchester City. However, a mixture of sheer …
Origasm at Anfield as the bar plays the star

Origasm at Anfield as the bar plays the star

Finally Fabinho… but that’s not what we’re here to discuss. Undefeated, still on City’s tail and five clear of Chelsea. Suddenly six clear of Arsenal and Tottenham and United are lost in the wilderness but that’s just a side note for now. Mané is miserable. Mo is getting mauled and Firmino is as false as we’ve ever seen him but these are problems for another day. We’ve allowed a league  low 5 goals in 14 matches through the brilliant triumvirate …

Observations as Liverpool mark best ever tally from opening 12 games

Liverpool marched to a relatively routine 2-0 win against a labouring Fulham, regaining their spot at the top of the Premier League table with goals from Mohamed Salah and Xherdan Shaqiri. Once again, this wasn't a vintage performance from Klopp's side, with questions remaining about how the manager gets the very best out of his players to regain the fluidity of last season. 14 seconds makes all the difference Few would've predicted Fulham to be the ones to put the …

Liverpool Player Ratings As They Fly Past Fulham

Bar a blistering performance that led to taking Fulham apart 9-0, that was pretty much what Liverpool needed. Much more coherent than midweek, three points and a clean sheet. Mohamed Salah's breakaway goal set the Reds on their way, Xherdan Shaqiri's second-half strike completing a 2-0 win over the Cottagers. Here are your ratings. Alisson throws his cap on it... Alisson (10): What a man. Comes into the Premier League with that magnificent beard, completely owns the yellow goalie kit and …
Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Lacazette leveller frustrates Reds

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool: Lacazette leveller frustrates Reds

Philosophical debates will be had around the dinner tables of Merseyside as Liverpool fans reflect on Saturday's draw with Arsenal, struggling to decide if it's one point gained or two points dropped. Glass half full, or half empty? After a 1-1 draw that include moments of genius combined with moments of madness, incompetency from officials and an open play goal from James Milner, it's difficult to pick a side. However, given Arsenal's late charge, Jurgen Klopp may well feel pleased …
