Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool are top of the Premier League after a late spell of ruthless brilliance shattered Cardiff's hopes of stealing a point at Anfield. The Reds' dominance levels in the first half were nigh-on historic as they enjoyed around 85% of the ball but, while there was some neat interplay, Mohamed Salah's opener proved the only shot on target in the first 45. It was a scrappy, frustrating start to the 2nd half, but a moment of pure quality Sadio Mané …
Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Salah acts as conductor as Reds go top

Liverpool 4-1 Cardiff: Salah acts as conductor as Reds go top

A supposedly 'out of sorts' Mohamed Salah acted as conductor as Liverpool primed themselves at the top of the Premier League table with a routine 4-1 win against Cardiff. Fresh of the back of a Champions League rout on Wednesday night, the Egyptian scored one and assisted two, taking his tally to seven for the season with four of those coming in the last eight days. A sweeping finish and a celebration to boot, Salah excelled through the middle, orchestrating attacking …
Liverpool 4-0 Red Star: Who was man of the match?

Liverpool 4-0 Red Star: Who was man of the match?

After nervously scraping past Huddersfield at the weekend, a reinvigorated Liverpool were able to turn on in the style in a convincing, thoroughly enjoyable 4-0 win against the largely helpless Red Star. The Reds were slow out of the blocks, but as soon as Roberto Firmino fired home the opener they began to ooze confidence, repeatedly slicing through their opponents with some encouragingly fluid attacking football. Mohamed Salah's brace, followed by Sadio Mane's fourth, redemption for an unconverted penalty, completed …
Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool: A Tactical Breakdown

After the international break, it’s never quite as easy as you would expect for a team to pick up where they left off. Jürgen Klopp alluded to this in his post-match presser, as he cited the return of both Firmino, Fabinho and Alisson as late as Thursday. For all this disruption though, Huddersfield were still rank outsiders for this fixture. Klopp used this fixture though as an opportunity to re-jig a starting XI that was struggling with injuries and was …
Naby Keita is key to Liverpool's evolution going forward

Naby Keita is key to Liverpool's evolution going forward

Livepool's midfield is holding us back. Our defence is looking as solid as it has done in years and we possess one of the most feared attacks in Europe but with a midfield that lacks any sort of dynamism or creativity, the Reds will struggle to evolve into genuine title challengers. It goes without saying that our front three lacks the scintillating fluidity it possessed at the back end of last season but is that any surprise when the team …
Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Huddersfield 0-1 Liverpool: Who Was Man of the Match?

Liverpool have equalled their best-ever start to a Premier League season but the increasingly frustrating wait for the Reds to come alive goes on. Mohamed Salah's tidy finish on 24 minutes should have set the visitors on their way to a comfortable victory, but fans would spend the final portion of the game longing for the whistle as a spirited Huddersfield pushed for an equaliser and a series of counter-attacking opportunities fizzled out. Shortly after chief rivals Manchester City had …
Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Time for Liverpool FC To Show Their Depth

Liverpool have a deeper squad than they have in previous years. This is not a fact that I’m going to dispute, although I’d definitely make (and will make) some arguments that that depth isn’t as deep as maybe it’s being made out in some areas, and certainly hasn’t drastically improved over the summer. Nevertheless, Klopp has slowly been building a deep and impressive squad that the four acquisitions in the summer have moved relatively close to being a very top …
An Oxlade-Chamberlain Shaped Hole

An Oxlade-Chamberlain Shaped Hole

Man City’s record-breaking title win last season saw them break the 100 point barrier, scoring 106 goals and falling to just two defeats. Liverpool though proved a barrier too big to overcome. Jurgen Klopp’s side won three of the four meetings between the two sides last season – with an emphatic 5-0 defeat at the Etihad being the exception. A 4-3 league win in January was followed up by a romping 3-0 win in the Champions League quarter-final first-leg before …
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 …
Observations as Shaqiri Makes a Happy First Impression - Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

Observations as Shaqiri Makes a Happy First Impression - Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

Six wins out of six to start the Premier League season. Not bad, eh? Southampton came to Anfield, and Southampton were routinely dispatched. An own goal to start proceedings, a returning centre-back with a fabulous header off a corner from that trusted Scouse right-foot, and then the King of Egypt scoring from a yard out from a thunderbolt free-kick that hit the bar. Anfield was happy. Maybe I have a few reasons here as to why Anfield was happy. THE …
