Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky Lucky Liverpool?

Lucky, lucky Liverpool eh? Comments about all the circumstances in which luck has favoured the Reds this season are out in force after their late goal against Spurs, courtesy of Hugo Lloris punching the ball onto the back of Toby Alderweireld, and there are a lot of frustrated opposition fans, as well as journalists, keen to jump on the Reds’ lucky streak. First things first, we were lucky against Spurs. No two ways about it. On balance, the second half …
Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Winning Mentality Comes To The Fore At Fulham

Is it possible to love and hate a football team at the same time? It was easy to feel that way on Sunday, as Liverpool did their best to throw away valuable points at Fulham, in what would have been their most disappointing result of the season. Confidence was flowing as the Reds arrived in west London, with the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich showcasing their brilliance under Jurgen Klopp. A trip to a 19th-place struggling outfit in the spring …
Jurgen Klopp was over the moon with how his Liverpool team played against Watford

Jurgen Klopp was over the moon with how his Liverpool team played against Watford

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was delighted with how his team played as they maintained their one-point lead at the top of the Premier League on Wednesday night. The Reds beat Watford 5-0 at Anfield with goals from Sadio Mané (x2), Divock Origi and Virgil van Dijk (x2). Mohamed Salah and his teammates ran The Hornets ragged on the Anfield turf, stretching Javi Gracia's defence at every opportunity in a game where they could have hit double figures. Speaking after the win, …
Liverpool wallop Watford to stay on top

Liverpool wallop Watford to stay on top

Liverpool: Alisson, Trent, Matip, Van Dijk, Fabinho, Wijnaldum, Milner, Origi, Mané, Salah Watford: Foster, Janmaat, Cathcart, Mariappa, Masina, Hughes, Doucourê, Capoue, Pereyra, Deulofeu, Deeney Jurgen Klopp is clearly trying to obscure Naby Keita as a sort of secret weapon for the final ten matches of the season. God speed Everton. The match kicked off and it was apparent immediately that Divock Origi was going to play out wide, moving Sadio Mané into the central forward role, rather than the Belgian …
Final prediction for Liverpool's lineup at home to Watford tonight

Final prediction for Liverpool's lineup at home to Watford tonight

Liverpool's Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita both face late fitness tests to see if they can play any part against Watford tonight in the Premier League. After Firmino limped off at Old Trafford on Sunday, it looked like we could be without the Brazilian international forward for a couple of weeks at least. However, Klopp delighted us all with the update yesterday that our number 9's ankle injury was not as bad as first feared, while also paying tribute to …
Which Liverpool lineup will Jurgen Klopp opt for on Wednesday night?

Which Liverpool lineup will Jurgen Klopp opt for on Wednesday night?

Jurgen Klopp has some more decisions to make ahead of Liverpool's clash with Watford on Wednesday night in the Premier League. It is looking more-and-more like Roberto Firmino will miss out after going over on his ankle at Old Trafford last Sunday. Rumours are that Firmino could also miss this weekend's derby at Goodison Park but let's hope that assessment is off the mark. Will Klopp go with the first option on our list? It sees a return to the …
Liverpool v Watford Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool v Watford Preview - Potential Key Battles

Liverpool face Watford at Anfield, off the back of three draws in their last four league games, and holding on to a slender lead at the top of the Premier League. The visitors are in good nick, sitting seventh in the Premier League after a 5-1 win over Cardiff, but have lost six of their seven games against the top six so far this season. So what are some of the key battles that could be important for Liverpool to win …

The Details Venue - Anfield, Liverpool Referee - Graham Scott Date & Time - Wednesday, February 27th @ 20:00 Current Odds - Liverpool 1/4, Draw 11/2, Watford 13/1 Form Liverpool Form With three wins, four draws and two defeats in all competitions since the turn of the year, 2019 just hasn't been what we'd hoped for yet as Liverpool fans.

Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Liverpool FC and Big Chances

Big chances are a crucial part of any Premier League team’s season. They help to differentiate the quality of a team. It expands nicely on the basic idea of xG that not all shots are equal. Bobby Firmino’s tap-in from a yard against Spurs was a better quality chance than when Denis Odoi shot from the halfway line against us for Fulham. So by looking at how many quality chances Liverpool are creating, and more importantly who is creating them, …
Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

Midfield musings, a new identity and tactical potential for Liverpool

With Liverpool cruising to a 3-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, Jurgen Klopp maintained the 2 point deficit to Man City. Another clean sheet and a highly satisfying win, albeit with a dogged rather than spectacular performance. There's a certain symmetry to our away results against Watford since Klopp took over from Brendan Rodgers. From the pitiful 3-0 reverse in his first season, to a thrilling 3-3 draw last season which pointed to our underlying defensive deficiencies. To then …
