Points Shared at the Etihad as CL Qualification Remains Wide Open.

Manchester City 1, Liverpool 1. Match report by Umarah Naz. If ever an advert was needed for English Premier League football then Manchester City against Liverpool on Sunday afternoon was it. Embed from Getty Images Two teams who know no other way of playing than to attack the opponents goal. The 1-1 draw at the Etihad was a frenetic, end-to-end game that had everything but a winner. Some fantastic football, crunching tackles, mildly pathetic booing, unsuccessful penalty shouts, dubious yellow cards, possible red ones, some glaring misses, a cracking penalty, a great goal and to top it all off, the continue reading

Liverpool's top 6 record remains intact as Arsenal are sunk at Anfield

Liverpool 3, Arsenal 1 Match report by Umarah Naz. It’s never usually the case that a resounding 3-1 win over Arsenal would leave Reds infuriated but that’s what some may be feeling. Embed from Getty Images Infuriated because it comes a mere five days after a crushing defeat against a struggling Leicester team; one of those teams that Liverpool are so generously charitable against. Beating Arsenal should really be the perfect remedy for such fresh wounds but, unfortunately, it’s all been seen before, thus leaving everyone with a sense of dejavu. Just a few weeks ago, a fantastic win over continue reading

Liverpool Lament Leicester Loss

Leicester City 3, Liverpool 1 By Umarah Naz.  If there was any doubt that Claudio Ranieri’s brutal dismissal was orchestrated by the players then Leicester’s 3-1 drubbing of Liverpool put that to rest. Embed from Getty Images It seems the Italian’s departure was enough to spark life back into a dire Leicester side that hadn’t scored a goal in 540 minutes of football, yet stuck three past a Liverpool side still on holiday in La Manga. But as good as Leicester were, the Reds were shockingly abysmal. Much had been made of Jurgen Klopp taking full advantage of a belated continue reading

Sadio Sinks Spurs and Seduces Anfield

Liverpool 2, Tottenham Hotspur 0.  By Umarah Naz.  It seems fitting with Valentine’s Day around the corner that Liverpool have been reunited with their true love. Of course, I’m talking about Sadio Mané. Embed from Getty Images He has proven to be the heartbeat of the club this season, and his absence last month saw Liverpool’s pulse fall away with their title and cup dreams dying a cruel death. A top four berth is still very much alive for the Reds but the winless run needed to stop. And what better club to do it against then one of your continue reading

Sadio returns as LFC stop the rot: Liverpool 1, Chelsea 1

By Umarah Naz. A draw versus Chelsea at any other time of the season wouldn’t be such an unwelcome result, but Tuesday’s clash at Anfield was a must win for Liverpool if they wanted to have any say in the title race. Embed from Getty Images As it stands, a point isn’t enough, all things considered. Liverpool’s only saving grace was that Arsenal unexpectedly lost to Watford whilst Tottenham drew with Sunderland, leaving Liverpool in a healthy position for that all important Champions League spot. With games against Spurs, Arsenal and Manchester City coming up, Liverpool’s top four destiny is continue reading

Reds Devoured by Hungry Wolves: Liverpool 1, Wolves 2

By Umarah Naz. A car crash is the only way to describe the last week for Liverpool FC. Three home defeats in a row have left the Reds out of two cup competitions and with a title challenge crumbling away into a top four scrap. The embarrassment of these defeats have fans reeling at what has gone so horribly wrong with a team that was breathing down league leaders Chelsea’s neck up until New Years Eve. Embed from Getty Images Today’s 2-1 FA Cup loss to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Anfield compounded Jurgen Klopp’s ignominy, where Liverpool could find no answers continue reading

Liverpool Red-Faced as Anfield Defence Crumbles

By Umarah Naz. For all it’s bad publicity, 2016 was in fact a fantastic year. For Liverpool Football Club at Anfield at least. Embed from Getty Images It had become a fortress again, and one where Liverpool had only lost one match in the entire year. It was a run that fans could be mightily proud of and had visiting teams on the back foot before a ball had even been kicked. After all, home form is key in any clubs progress. But all good runs must come to an end at some point and there’s no shame in losing continue reading

Lucas Leiva Leads Liverpool Into Next Round of the Cup

By Umarah Naz. When Lucas Leiva scores for Liverpool, you just know that the universe is a little off kilter. Embed from Getty Images The last time such a rare phenomenon occurred was 2316 days ago, in September 2010, when we were all a lot younger and a little less grey-haired. If you were strange enough to bet on a Lucas goal, it certainly wouldn’t be from a header. But that’s exactly what Plymouth Argyle had the misfortune (for them) to witness in Wednesday nights FA Cup replay at Home Park. The golden locks of the Reds captain flew into continue reading

By Umarah Naz. Tentative would be the best word to describe the majority of Liverpool fans feelings before the clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday evening. The home side came into the crucial game on the back of a nine match winning streak, whilst the visitors remain winless in 2017 in all competitions. Winless but not defeated. Reds have enjoyed an excellent season so far, (with the occasional blip) but no one can deny that the three draws and one loss since beating Manchester City on New Years Eve have been a downer. Hence, the apprehension in continue reading

12th Man Required as Karius keeps Liverpool in Race to Wembley

By Umarah Naz Liverpool will need their world famous twelfth man in a fortnights time at Anfield, when they face Southampton in the second leg of the EFL Cup semi-final. Embed from Getty Images Having suffered a disappointing 1-0 defeat at St. Mary’s in the first leg, Liverpool now have it all to do in the return leg to book their ticket to Wembley for next month. Jurgen Klopp reverted to a full-strength team after the youngsters had their opportunity to impress against Plymouth at the weekend. Loris Karius kept his place, as did Lucas Leiva and Emre Can. They continue reading
