Beck on Top

Stalemate again. The worst performance of the league season so far for Liverpool, without a doubt. We were dreadful. Manchester United, despite their resilient defending, were there for the taking. The frustration comes from the failure to capitalise on their injuries in terms of both their makeshift line-up and the 3 first half substitutions.

Henderson Sits Down James

A stalemate then. 0-0 is a very overrated score line for the away side in European competitions. Everyone, including Niko Kovac, buys into it being a solid European away result. But in many ways, it can favour the home side, especially one as good as Liverpool Football Club.

Salah Pops the Cherries

The best in months. Liverpool could have quite easily scored 8 and it would not have flattered them. It was an incredible team response to the lazy headlines of bottlers and the nerves of a title race being too much to take. The Reds bottled up their anger and directed it towards a Bournemouth side that just couldn’t live with Liverpool’s quality and directness. From the off Bournemouth were being ...
