Key Stats as Potent Pressing Reds Beat Brighton

Liverpool returned to attacking form in explosive fashion as two goals in the opening ten minutes saw them beat Brighton 3-1 at the Amex Stadium. But what were the key stats as the Reds moved one step closer to a historic season? Three More Wins Liverpool moved into the nervous nineties, as they hit 92 points with their 30th win of the season, in just 34 games. Three more wins would take them to a record 101 points, and a …
Brighton and Hove Albion 1-3 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Brighton and Hove Albion 1-3 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool moved onto 92 points in the Premier League after a 3-1 win away to Brighton and Hove Albion. It was a harsh result on The Seagulls as they created more than enough chances to achieve at least a draw, but a combination of their poor finishing and The Reds’ last-ditch defending prevented that from happening. Referee Craig Pawson also tried his very best to stop us from recording another victory with his truly wretched performance, but thankfully we found …
Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool banked yet another 3 points at Anfield after a very lacklustre 2-0 victory over Aston Villa. Until Mané put the Reds in front in the 70th minute, we failed to create any chance of note whatsoever, with Villa looking the more likely to break the deadlock with numerous dangerous counterattacks. A win is a win, though, which keeps our remarkable run of victories at home continuing along nicely. In goal, Alisson unsurprisingly started and played very well. A couple …
Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Key Stats as Reds see off Villa as title malaise continues

Liverpool returned to winning ways as they saw off Aston Villa 2-0 in a scrappy game at Anfield to make it a staggering 24 straight home league wins in a row. But what were the key stats from another dross game in Liverpool’s title procession? Naby. Lad. Liverpool’s attacking display was efficient rather than explosive. Only six shots, only three inside the box and only two big chances, but both big chances were converted to give the Reds the win. …
Manchester City 4-0 Liverpool: Observations from a night to forget

Manchester City 4-0 Liverpool: Observations from a night to forget

For Liverpool, Thursday's trip to the Etihad peaked before it had even begun. The side who had come out on top last season in the most agonising circumstances were reduced to rolling out the red carpet for the most dominant champions in Premier League history as they took to the field. The final score was the consequence of defensive sloppiness and charitable finishing against City writ large. Psychologically, you could say Pep Guardiola's men have laid down a marker. Liverpool …
Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Limp Liverpool Mauled By City

Liverpool's title party was brought to an abrupt end after they were walloped 4-0 by Manchester City at the Etihad. Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, and an Alex Oxlade Chamberlain own goal condemned the full-strength, yet at times shambolic Reds to a heavy defeat. Despite some good chances, the visitors -- many of whom looked to feeling the impact of their league winning celebrations -- fluffed several chances and the hosts capitalized on all their opportunities. …
Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Title-Winning Liverpool the Best for Decades

Well they did it. It’s over. Liverpool were officially labelled Premier League Champions as Man City slipped up at Chelsea, losing 2-1 and giving Liverpool a 23 point lead with seven games to go. This is the first time in my lifetime I’ve seen Liverpool win the title and for many of you it’s likely either the first of your life or the first one you’re old enough to remember. And for me, this Liverpool team is unquestionably the best …
Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Liverpool's Wait Is Over

Finally, after what felt like an interminable wait, Liverpool Football Club are Champions of England once again. The Reds' 19th crown -- their first in the Premier League era -- is all the more impressive, given the club's recent boom and bust history; where a title challenge would inevitably be followed a season later by a calamitous collapse. The title tilt of 2001/2002 was followed by a meek 5th placed finish in 2002/2003, again owing to poor transfer market manoeuvring, …
Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

Why Alaba Would be the Perfect Summer Addition at Liverpool

By the looks of things, Liverpool are set to undergo another quiet summer in the transfer market. The Reds' decision not to pursue a move for Timo Werner appears to be a sign of things to come, even though there is no ruling out the prospect of the odd addition coming in. One player who has been loosely linked with a move to Liverpool is David Alaba, who has been a stylish stalwart for Bayern Munich over the past decade, …
Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace: Observations as Reds remind us why they're champions

Liverpool 4-0 Crystal Palace: Observations as Reds remind us why they're champions

109 days after Liverpool last won a game of football, you could almost be forgiven for forgetting just how mighty Jurgen Klopp's title brigade really is. But this masterful performance reminded us why the Reds are a mere speck in the distance in this Premier League title race. After a steady restart against Everton, Liverpool roared back to their best, and Crystal Palace were rendered their plaything. Liverpool set their own tempo in an empty Anfield The pace of most …
