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 …

Xherdan Shaqiri believes starting place in the derby win was just reward

Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri says his first Premier League start for The Reds since January was a reward for the hard work he's putting in behind the scenes at Melwood.

There were a number of excellent individual performances, so let’s take a look at …

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: Key Stats as Reds send Blues crashing into bottom three

Recently the Merseyside Derby has proven an almost excruciatingly tense encounter, decided by fine margins. But not here. This time Liverpool laid bare the gulf in quality, powering five goals past Jordan Pickford and piling the misery on their neighbours. Klopp left supporters stunned by ringing the changes, but even with the hosts at approximately 50% strength Everton were outmuscled. Their two goals are an inconvenience for Liverpool and scant solace for their supporters, who trudged home all-too-aware that the …

Player Ratings as Liverpool stick five past the Ev

There are holes to pick that performance and a nagging concern that Liverpool's defensive lapses will eventually lead to some dropped league points, but the day we stop beating our rivals 5-2 is the day we pack it all in. Divock Origi loves a big game, Sadio Mane is a magician and Everton are really bad are my main takeaways, and here are my ratings.

Filling Fabinho's shoes - how will Liverpool cope?

It was arguably the most frustrating aspect of the irritating 1-1 draw with Napoli in the latest Champions League - Fabinho picking up a fairly serious ankle injury.

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

Return of the Shaq - and why it's good news for Liverpool

It's been a long time since we saw any meaningful contribution from Xherdan Shaqiri in a Liverpool shirt. In truth, it probably came in that memorable Champions League semi-final win over Barcelona at Anfield, when his beautiful curling cross was met by a thumping Gini Wijnaldum header to bring Liverpool level in the tie. The Alpine Messi has been hampered by a niggling injury to one of those enormous calves of his and has barely featured this season for Klopp's …
