Liverpool 2-1 Monterrey: Player Ratings as Reds leave it late again

After almost two weeks of serene Liverpool winning games rather comfortably, the one that leaves it late and wins 2-1 showed up in Doha this evening, as the Reds beat Mexican side Monterrey 2-1 to progress to the final of the Club World Cup, where they will face Brazilian side Flamengo. Naby Keita put Liverpool ahead early, but Jurgen Klopp's men were pegged back immediately by Rogelio Funes Mori's equaliser. The Reds left it late, and it was up to …

Shaqiri wants Reds to savour 'amazing' Club World Cup experience

Liverpool's Xherdan Shaqiri says The Reds must treasure the experience of playing in the Club World Cup this week in Qatar.

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 …

Variety Is The Spice Of Life For Freescoring Liverpool.

Finally, after what felt like an interminable series of 2-1 victories, Liverpool have begun winning games by scoreline's that don't look like Azealia Banks songs.

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. The Swiss attacking midfielder put in an impressive display as Liverpool beat their Merseyside rivals 5-2 at Anfield on Wednesday night. The Reds' number 23 popped up with a well-taken finish to make it 2-0 early-on after some great work from Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mané combined.
Liverpool 5-2 Everton: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool 5-2 Everton: Who Was Man of the Match?

Another win for the Reds in the Premier League, this one a bit simpler than many of the recent ones. Understandable, really, being against a relegation-threatened side. The Merseyside Derby spoils are claimed by Liverpool yet again in a 5-2 thrashing of Everton. The result was never really in doubt from minute one, despite a few bits of ropey defending in periods of the first half. 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

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. Snide, silly errors and more from the defence Adrian (6): Not giving him too much blame …
