LFC Tactics & Player Ratings: Stoke City 1, Liverpool 2

Stoke City 1, Liverpool 2 Embed from Getty Images Bet 365 Stadium, Stoke on Trent (27,568) Liverpool scorers: Coutinho 70′, Firmino 72′ Stoke scorer: Walters 44′ Simon Mignolet – 9* Two outstanding saves to rescue Liverpool’s ailing defence who continue to gift chances to the opposition. Embed from Getty Images Trent Alexander-Arnold – 5.5 Wasn’t helped by those around him. A learning experience for the 18-year-old who was subbed at half-time. One great cross showed his potential. Dejan Lovren – 4 Gifted a chance to Arnautovic and was stranded for numerous other Stoke chances, including their goal. Joel Matip – 6 continue reading

Woeful Wednesday as Liverpool Buckle Under Bournemouth Pressure

Wednesday turned out to be woeful for Liverpool football club. After being slapped with a two year academy transfer ban for breaching Premier League rules regarding a schoolboy from Stoke, Liverpool then learned that talisman, Sadio Mané’s season is almost certainly over. The Senegalese may require surgery on damaged cartilage in his left knee, which has left Klopp with a massive gap to fill for the remainder of the season. And to top it all off, the Reds were left deflated after conceding a customary, awful late goal against Bournemouth dropping two vital points in the process. Jurgen Klopp claimed continue reading

Liverpool 3, Everton 1 Anfield, Liverpool (52,920) Liverpool scorers: Mane 8′, Coutinho 31′, Orgi 60′ Everton scorer: Pennington 28′  Simon Mignolet – 6 Had very little to do in the first half, so decided the join in the fun. No Everton player completed more take-ons than Simon Mignolet in the first half. pic.twitter.com/OPL5J3FCBY — Andrew Beasley (@BassTunedToRed) April 1, 2017 Made a couple of good saves in the second period, but Everton were so bad it was difficult for him to have a good game. Nathaniel Clyne – 6 Positionally decent, but nothing of note other than a good cross 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

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

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

Liverpool v Manchester United - LFC Tactics & Report from Dour Stalemate

Tactics After a 0-0 stalemate at Anfield, Jose Mourinho accused Liverpool of playing too defensively. It was a cunning ploy to detract the attention from his own side’s defensive, long-ball tactics, but his tactical view of Liverpool’s play was (intentionally) incorrect. Manchester United went with the classic triple target man, double full-backs, and, er, Herrera set-up. #LFCvMUFC pic.twitter.com/xsItxeFMoT — James Nalton (@JDNalton) October 17, 2016 He accused the home side of using two defensive midfielders in the shape of Jordan Henderson and Emre Can, implying that Jurgen Klopp had set his side up in a 4-2-3-1 rather than the 4-3-3 they’ve used continue reading
