Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Why Liverpool Should Avoid Cantwell Punt

Liverpool love a good punt on a player from a relegated side. In three of the last four summer's, the Reds have salvaged some gems from the wreckage of sides destined for the Championship. First, Georginio Wijnaldum and Andrew Robertson -- two players who arrived with relatively inexpensive price-tags and who have now established themselves as key players -- arrived from Newcastle and Hull respectively in the summers of 2016 and 2017. Then in the summer of 2018, Xherdan Shaqiri …

Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Monterrey 1-2 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool progress to the final of the Club World Cup after a far from convincing 2-1 win over Monterrey. The Reds left it late once again, but Roberto Firmino’s injury-time goal was enough to clinch the victory following Naby Keita’s opener and Funes Mori’s leveller. The team selected to start the game was unorthodox, to say the least, which showed in the performance. It was always going to be difficult with so many out injured or rested, all that mattered …

Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Limp Liverpool Keep Winning Streak Alive

Liverpool kept their Premier League undefeated run intact with a 2-0 win over Watford at Anfield in Saturday's early game. A brace of goals from Mohamed Salah was enough to seal the win for the Reds in a limp, tired looking performance against the Premier League's bottom team. Jurgen Klopp elected to change formation to a 4231, and make three changes from the Champions League victory away in Salzburg. Naby Keita dropping out for Xherdan Shaqiri and Andrew Robertson being …
Liverpool 2-0 Watford: Who Was Man of the Match?

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

Liverpool win yet again in the Premier League in an admittedly subpar performance against Watford at Anfield. Mo Salah was the difference with 2 sublime goals, both with his infamous right foot. Watford created a number of very good chances and on another day would have done enough to at least take a point and possibly all 3. The mentality monsters came out on top, though, and extended their incredible unbeaten runs at home and in the League. Alisson had …
