Bournemouth 4 Liverpool 3 - Player Ratings

Liverpool fell to their second defeat of the season as a second-half capitulation at Dean Court saw Bournemouth take the three points with a 4-3 victory. Sadio Mane and Divock Origi gave Liverpool a 2-0 lead before Callum Wilson's penalty gave the Cherries hope. Emre Can restored the Reds' two-goal lead, but Ryan Fraser, Steve Cook and Nathan Ake scored in the last 20 minutes to give Bournemouth a famous win. Loris Karius - 4 He looked very suspect when …

Pass the Dutchie On the Left-Hand Side

First off, credit to @CalvLyfeson for the inspired title of this piece. There was a lot of talk surrounding who Jurgen Klopp would opt to go with to replace the injured Philippe Coutinho on the Liverpool left. If history was anything to go off it looked as though the German would give the responsibility to Coutinho's compatriot, Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool number 11 had filled in for the Coutinho previously in matches against Burton, Leicester City and Manchester United. Against Burton …

Observations from Liverpool's win against Leeds United

Well, it wasn't pretty but after making eight changes, giving players a go in different positions and blooding a few youngsters it wasn't going to be, was it? It was an intriguing watch but not if you're a fan of entertainment. It was once again up to Liverpool to be patient in possession and work hard to create chances against a well disciplined and defensively organised Leeds United. Just like against Sunderland, Liverpool did eventually put away one of the …

Liverpool 2-0 Leeds United - Player Ratings

On a night when Leeds United and Garry Monk did their growing reputation no harm, Liverpool booked a spot in the semi-final with a 2-0 win. Divock Origi opened the scoring, poking in a stunning cross from Trent Alexander-Arnold, but the story of the night is undoubtedly Ben Woodburn becoming the club's youngest ever goalscorer, in only his second senior appearance. Here's how the Reds fared in a potential banana-skin at Anfield. Simon Mignolet - 6 He made a very …

Tactical Analysis - Liverpool maintain composure to break down Sunderland resistance

The match at Anfield against Sunderland took on extra significance given the run of form enjoyed by Chelsea under Antonio Conte. Whilst it is remiss to place too much importance on a single result at this stage of the season there is still a danger in allowing your opponent to open up too much of a gap at this point of the season. Last week against Southampton saw Liverpool come away with a 0-0 draw with Southampton setting out in …

Liverpool 2 Sunderland 0: Player Ratings

Liverpool overcame a battle of attrition and perseverance once again, the key difference being that Liverpool were rewarded for their efforts as the hosts came away with the three points and yet another clean-sheet. The celebration over the victory is sure to be tempered by the serious looking injury for Coutinho. This is how the Reds fared. Loris Karius (7.5) - The best all-round performance from the German yet, as his alertness thwarted a couple of big chances for Sunderland. …

Liverpool vs Sunderland Preview: Reds must pounce on Black Cats

Liverpool will hope to return to winning ways this weekend as they host Sunderland at Anfield on Saturday, the side in second taking on the side second bottom. On a bitter November's day at Anfield there shouldn't be a beachball in sight, something that the Reds can use to their advantage in a bid to return to the Premier League's summit. THE DETAILS Match: Liverpool vs Sunderland Venue: Anfield Date: Saturday 26th November Time: 15:00 BST Referee: Anthony Taylor FORM Liverpool will feel unfortunate not …

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

Why Liverpool Need: Mahmoud Dahoud

In times before the great Liverpool ascendancy of season 2016/17; before Jürgen’s rampant Reds stormed into the Premier League landscape and claimed it as their stomping ground, there was a 20 year-old starlet coming through the ranks in Borussia Mönchengladbach. It was hardly a well-kept secret that Klopp, in his first summer transfer window at the club, courted the young Syrian-born German under-21 international. And he should do it again come January. To retain their status as Premier League title …

Liverpool kept knocking on the door, and loosening the locks but they just could not break down a very resolute Southampton side today. This is how the Reds fared. Loris Karius (6.5) - Spectator for the whole of the game. Came out once to make a punch. Released the ball at the earliest whenever he got it. Nathaniel Clyne (6) - Considering the fact that Southampton lined up very narrow, Clyne could have done a lot better today. He often bought …
