The Bizarre Case of Jordan Henderson's Daft Sending Off

The Bizarre Case of Jordan Henderson's Daft Sending Off

If you could name one player at one point in the history of Liverpool whose sending off would produce the most hysterical reaction, Jordan Henderson in 2018 would be right at the top of the list. The Reds skipper was shown his marching orders for a stupid second yellow card at Watford on Saturday, leading to the usual deafening criticism in his direction. Few individuals live quite such a soap opera-style existence through their own fans as Henderson, with his …

Observations as Liverpool Continue to put the Pressure on Man City

Liverpool surged to a 3-0 win against Watford courtesy of a strong second-half performance at Vicarage Road. The fine margins of football could’ve made it a very different result had the home side gained a penalty when the scores were level after Robertson appeared to bring down Will Hughes, but a growing telepathy between the front three was enough to see Klopp’s side retain their strong start. Liverpool fans confident of victory should really have a peek at this site if they …

Key Stats As Reds Make It 33 points from 13 games

Liverpool turned in another solid away performance as they won 3-0 away at Watford. But what were the key stats from a tricky win at Vicarage Road, in which the Reds toiled for long spells but came good in the end? Clinical Reds Rely on Salah Again This was another far from vintage attacking performance from Liverpool. They created 1.74 xG, but 1.08 of that xG was created in the third goal incident, in which Mané and Firmino had Liverpool’s …

Watford v Liverpool Preview - Key Battles To Look Out For

The international break is over, and it's now time for Liverpool to head into the busiest and most crucial spell of the season. It begins with a trip to Vicarage Road to face Watford, who have been one of the surprise packages of the league this season. For once, the Reds didn't have too many injury scares from the international break, with only Jordan Henderson returning early thanks to a scare. But Klopp should have a clean bill of health …
Liverpool’s Next Five Away Fixtures Could Define Their Season

Liverpool’s Next Five Away Fixtures Could Define Their Season

With the international break thankfully almost at an end, attention starts turning back to the Premier League, and for Liverpool, that means a tricky away trip to Watford in their first game back. Jürgen Klopp has never hidden his disdain for international football, in particular, the Nations League, and so will be glad to have his squad back ahead of their trip to Vicarage Road. The fixture in the capital is the start of what is a challenging run of …
Liverpool's Season Starts Here

Liverpool's Season Starts Here

The day that you arrive at a holiday destination can often have a strange feel to it. You’re still a bit jaded after a long flight, drive or however you’ve made your way there, and you don’t feel completely in holiday mode until you wake up the following morning. Call it a strange comparison - it is - but Liverpool’s season feels a bit like that. It has all been a bit stressful and tense to date, with almost no …
Faux Forwards and False Expectations

Faux Forwards and False Expectations

Aside from the strange machinations of Adenor Leonardo Bacchi, otherwise known as Tite, we are all generally aware of the value of Roberto Firmino at this point. Brazil was boring with Jesus, boisterous with Bobby, and ultimately the exclusion of the Reds' frontman would prove to be their undoing. Back on Merseyside, Bobby Firmino has been lauded for his incredible all-around game in the middle of Liverpool's attack. He finishes his campaign with 30 goals and 14 assists in all …
'Not as good as last year' Mane keeps on delivering

'Not as good as last year' Mane keeps on delivering

“He just doesn’t look right.” “It looks like Salah’s rise has affected his confidence.” “Where is the Sadio Mane of last season?”
The first two quotes there have been made pretty often through the course of this season, but do they carry any weight? When you look at performances and numbers to go with it, there is really no way in which to quantify “looking right”. So we might be justified in letting that one slide. Has Salah’s …

Anfield's SeatServe - American Anfield

Ahead of Liverpool’s enthralling 5-0 win over Watford on Saturday evening, I was angered to see stickers slapped on the bank of seats promoting an app that Liverpool Football Club are now using. This app, SeatServe, allows fans to have food and drink personally delivered to their seats before the game, at halftime, or even worse, during the game. There are many moral issues with the induction of this skip-the-queue system. One is that it seems to be offering an …
Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

Liverpool player ratings as supreme Salah shines against Hornets

There was something so routine and yet so unbelievable about that. For a player who scores so frequently, it's mad that it's Mo Salah's first hat-trick. Even crazier that he decided to score four, not three. Liverpool 5-0 Watford - into the home-stretch of the season with a win. Andy Robertson's gang of beautiful lads Loris Karius (6): Another clean sheet, tidy in everything he did. Joe Gomez (5): Misjudges a header for Watford's first shot on target as Richarlison …
