Wolves 0 – 2 Liverpool: Player Ratings and Talking Points

Reds Top at Xmas Liverpool took their chance to seal the top spot on the Premier League table for Christmas after what was ultimately a professional, if at times difficult, night. Wolves are a good team and they deservedly find themselves just behind 'the big six' clubs in seventh place. Despite the Reds' excellent run of results and encouraging form, this game had 'potential banana peel' written all over it. This point ...

LFC Advent Calendar 18 – Dirk Kuyt

Ordinarily when a player becomes a legend it's due to their goal tally, trophies won, or the fact that they're a local lad come good. Dirk Kuyt from the Netherlands scored a respectable total of 71 goals for Liverpool, but unfortunately only lifted one trophy for the Reds, yet we still love him dearly. So how did he become a true icon at Liverpool? His memorable goals in big matches certainly ...

Liverpool 3 – 1 Manchester United: Player Ratings and Talking Points

Merry Christmas Mourinho A visit from Manchester United is always a nervy affair, especially considering it's been quite a while since we've beaten them in the League. That stat would make some believe that United have been dominating us when in fact, it's been quite the opposite. They've just been stubborn and lucky with their deep defending and counter-attacks. The injuries we suffered before the game suggested that a similar result was ...

LFC Advent Calendar 5 – Daniel Agger

Daniel Agger Daniel Agger is one of my all-time favourite Liverpool players. It wasn't just because he was one of the best defenders in Europe at one point. It wasn't even just because he created some truly special memories. It was because of his nearly unmatched devotion and loyalty to the club. There's been very few players, especially non-local ones, who have worn the jersey with more pride than Agger. Embed from ...

Liverpool 1 – 0 Everton: Player Ratings and Talking Points

Merry Christmas Everton Divock Origi's comical late goal sent Anfield into raptures and meant that for the third time in the space of 12 months, Liverpool have beaten Everton with a late winner. The game itself was intense, and to Everton's credit, they put up a far greater fight than in previous years, turning the match into an end-to-end thriller. Ultimately though, the result was a fair one, even if the goal ...

PSG 2 – 1 Liverpool: Player Ratings and Talking Points

Another Loss Away in Europe Liverpool were beaten 2-1 by PSG in Paris to put the Reds' Champions League progression under serious threat. Liverpool started slowly and PSG took advantage by emulating the Reds of last year in blowing us off the park early. Similarly, the home fans channelled an Anfield-like spirit and roared their team to victory. Their first goal was slightly fortunate but certainly deserved, as Juan Bernat arrived first ...

Watford 0 – 3 Liverpool: Player Ratings and Talking Points

Records Fall as Liverpool Rise Liverpool's current tally of 33 points is their highest ever total at this stage of a Premier League season, and likewise, only five goals conceded is the Reds' best defensive record in the EPL. However, Watford didn't make life easy on the day, particularly in the first half. Gerard Deulofeu had a goal ruled out for offside after only a few minutes. Troy Deeney set up the ...

Arsenal 1-1 Liverpool : Player Ratings and Talking Points

Disappointing Draw Liverpool drew 1-1 with an impressive Arsenal side in a game that's difficult to analyse. On one hand, Liverpool were unlucky not to have won 3-0 after Mane's goal was incorrectly ruled out for offside, and VVD missed two big chances. On the other, Arsenal were dominant for long stretches of the match, and it's arguable that Liverpool barely deserved a draw. Klopp voiced his disappointment after the game regarding ...

Napoli 1 – 0 Liverpool : Player Ratings

Liverpool Beaten After Flat Display Out of context, a 1-0 loss away to Napoli in the Champions League isn't a big deal. However, it was the manner of this defeat that has Reds fans upset. In all honesty, the scoreline flattered us. Liverpool's midfield looked hapless, our fullbacks were run ragged, and worst of all, the attack failed to click yet again. Lorenzo Insigne won it for the hosts in the 90th minute ...
