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 …
Appreciating Liverpool's Future Captain

Appreciating Liverpool's Future Captain

Remember when people said that £75 million was an exorbitant fee? Liverpool have gone from a notoriously shaky defence, one which is able to instil fear into even the most resilient of Liverpool fans when they conceded a corner, to one which instils fear into event the sharpest of strikers. And a lot of Liverpool’s surge to European force is down to the arrival of the most expensive defender in world football. It wasn’t typically Liverpool’s way to fork out …
Liverpool Player Ratings As They Fly Past Fulham

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 …
Ineffective Trio Represent The Past For Liverpool

Ineffective Trio Represent The Past For Liverpool

Who else detested that 2-0 defeat to Red Star Belgrade more than any other game this season? It's rare that you get a Liverpool match where you end up angry at every single player, but not one individual could fly back to Merseyside with their head held high, after what was a display without positives. You could pick out infuriating things about each Reds performer on the night, whether it be Trent Alexander-Arnold's continued slump, Gini Wijnaldum's ghost-like performance or …
Negligent Klopp Risks Reds' Champions League Hopes

Negligent Klopp Risks Reds' Champions League Hopes

RedStar 2 Liverpool 0 Alisson, Trent, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Lallana, Mané, Salah, Sturridge Substitutes: Gomez, Firmino, Origi Pavkov… It’s one of those names that will end up being converted to a curse word from now on. Every time you stub a toe or pinch a finger, “PAVKOV!!!” The trouble really started against Arsenal. Klopp’s reluctance to use his substitutes not only was a virtual white flag in London. It meant that the likes of Sturridge and Lallana …
Why so serious? Confessions of a negative Liverpool fan

Why so serious? Confessions of a negative Liverpool fan

Since the 2013/14 run-in specifically, but probably far before that, there has been a sect of Reds supporters who have not felt safe to embrace positivity. There have been peaks and valleys where the legions of the negative have ebbed and flowed. If you’ve been so kind to have listened to me on various Anfield Index podcasts, you’ll know that while I have celebrated “the project” and our progress under Rodgers and then with Klopp, I have been reticent to …
Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

Time For Forgotten Man Keita To Excel

It's hard to think of a Liverpool signing in the last decade that brought as much delight as the capture of Naby Keita. Luis Suarez is a name that instantly springs to mind, but when he traded Amsterdam for Anfield he wasn’t the world-beater he would go on to become. Mo Salah and Sadio Mane both arrived to mixed reactions, while the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino only became global stars once they moved to the Reds, like …
Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool are top of the Premier League after a late spell of ruthless brilliance shattered Cardiff's hopes of stealing a point at Anfield. The Reds' dominance levels in the first half were nigh-on historic as they enjoyed around 85% of the ball but, while there was some neat interplay, Mohamed Salah's opener proved the only shot on target in the first 45. It was a scrappy, frustrating start to the 2nd half, but a moment of pure quality Sadio Mané …
