The fearsome foursome and captain Coutinho- Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Well What a Victory, What a Night B)

The fearsome foursome and captain Coutinho – 5 talking points from Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow
James Nalton

6 December 2017
Liverpool’s fearsome foursome put Spartak Moscow to the sword and sent shockwaves across the Champions League with a convincing 7-0 win.

Liverpool 7-0 Spartak Moscow

Champions League Group E, Matchday 6, Anfield
Wednesday, 6 December 2017

Goals: Coutinho 4′ (pen), 15′, 50′, Firmino 18′, Mane 47′, 76′, Salah 86′

There’s always a sense of anticipation when the names Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho are together on a Liverpool teamsheet.

At Anfield they lined up in an attacking foursome with two holding midfielders behind for insurance, and this allowed them to run riot.

Coutinho, captain for the night, was immense, but the whole dynamic of the front four produced an unstoppable force which Spartak failed to contain.

At times the 4-4-2 formation was almost 4-2-3-1 with Firmino dropping back, taking up some of the playmaking duties alongside Coutinho, and this combination of guile and speed set the side off for their relentless attacking display.

The damage these players can do was epitomised in Liverpool’s second goal during which all played vital parts with Coutinho eventually finding the net.

When Salah coolly finished a chance with five minutes to go, it meant all four were on the scoresheet, and rounded off a night of forward-thinking football which sees Liverpool qualify for the last 16 in style.

Can Reds continue city dominance in the 229th Merseyside derby? – Liverpool vs. Everton Preview
Henry Jackson
Match PreviewNews
9 December 2017
Liverpool host Everton in the 229th Merseyside derby on Sunday afternoon at Anfield, with the Reds in the middle of a superb run of form.


Liverpool vs. Everton

Sunday, December 10, 2017 — 2.15pm (GMT)
Anfield
Premier League
Referee: Craig Pawson


Last Meeting: Liverpool 3-1 Everton

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are absolutely flying at the moment, with back-to-back 5-1 and 7-0 wins over Brighton and Spartak Moscow proof of that.

This is the Liverpool that we saw destroy teams in early parts of last season, with their attacking football too much for opponents to handle. They have scored three or more goals in eight of their last nine matches.

In Philippe Coutinho, Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the Reds possess a wonderfully balanced attacking unit, and all four are in sublime form at the minute.

Everton make the famously short trip to Anfield at a pretty terrible time for them, and on paper it is a derby that should be as one-sided as any in recent memory.

Liverpool’s local rivals may well be a different animal under Sam Allardyce, however, and they have actually won on three of their last five Premier League outings.

We know how the game will pan out tactically before it even kicks off—it will be a case of the Reds trying to break down their well-drilled and inferior opponents—but the hosts have to play well to win.

Everton have not won at Anfield since 1999, and while records are always there to be broken, only a top-drawer performance and plenty of luck will achieve that feat on Sunday.

Watch Liverpool vs. Everton online – Live Streams and Worldwide TV Info
Jack Lusby
News
10 December 2017
Here’s how to watch Liverpool vs. Everton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon (2.15pm GMT), live online and on TV around the world.

Fresh off the back of their triumphant 7-0 win at home to Spartak Moscow in midweek, the Reds head into their first of three Merseyside derby clashes of the campaign.

Everton have endured a tough start to the season, but are now under new management in Sam Allardyce, supported by ex-Leicester City manager Craig Shakespeare and Liverpool alumni Sammy Lee.

This ensures Liverpool’s rivals will be something of a surprise package on Sunday but, given Everton‘s lowly form in recent weeks, this should still be a comfortable clash for the hosts.

Klopp’s side can extend their unbeaten run to an impressive 10 games since their 4-1 loss at Tottenham at the end of October, as they continue to thrive both domestically and in Europe.

But will Everton prove an unlikely roadblock? All eyes will be on Anfield as the weekend winds down on Sunday.

Check This Is Anfield for the team news ahead of the Reds’ latest clash.

The match kicks off at 2.15pm (GMT)—that’s 9.15am in New York, 6.15am in Los Angeles, 1.15am (Monday) in Sydney, 5.15pm in Nairobi and 6.15pm in Dubai.

we were really unlucky with that penalty, silly Lovern.

Still looking good though,hope our recent form is not being taken for granted by Klopp as thought he should have played coutinho and firminio from the start.

Keep it up the reds. :)

At least we got a draw.

Frustration, rotation and fine margins – 5 talking points from Liverpool 1-1 Everton
Karl Matchett10 December 2017

The Merseyside derby ended in huge frustration for Liverpool after a dominant display only earned a point in a 1-1 draw with Everton.

Liverpool 1-1 Everton

Premier League, Anfield
December 10, 2017

Goals: Salah 41′; Rooney (pen) 77′

Jurgen Klopp continued his winter policy of rotating players and made several changes for the Anfield clash.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Dominic Solanke were among the surprise starters and the Reds utterly dominated possession in the first half, with the visitors barely venturing into Simon Mignolet‘s half of the pitch.
Such a packed defence meant clear chances were hard to come by though, with wayward long-range strikes a continuing theme.
Just when it looked as if the teams would head into the break all square, Mohamed Salah suddenly escaped his man in the box and pinged a beauty into the top corner for 1-0.
It could, and should, have been two before the interval, but Sadio Mane squandered a great chance to pass to a team-mate with three waiting for an open goal, instead firing wide.

Chances in the second half saw Mane’s overhead kick saved, Joe Gomez head over and Philippe Coutinho go close from a free-kick, but the Reds couldn’t find a second.
And out of nothing, it cost them. A long ball forward saw Wayne Rooney cross, then Dominic Calvert-Lewin get his body between Dejan Lovren and the ball.
Contact was minimal but the ref gave a penalty, which Rooney dispatched to create frustration on the red half of Merseyside.

Here are the biggest talking points from the 1-1 draw.

Liverpool drawn against FC Porto in Champions League last 16

Karl Matchett 11 December 2017

Liverpool’s reward for topping their UEFA Champions League group is a two-legged tie against FC Porto in the last 16.
The Reds came through a group against Sevilla, Spartak Moscow and Maribor, finishing unbeaten in Group E across the six matches and ending up three points clear at the top.

It meant the Reds went into Monday’s draw for the last 16—the first time Liverpool have reached that stage since 2009—able to face any of six opponents.

Basel, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Shakhtar Donetsk, FC Porto and Real Madrid were the potential ties awaiting Jurgen Klopp and his side.

And it’s a trip to Portugal on the cards in February when European action resumes, as the Reds were paired with Porto.

The first leg will be away from home, with the decisive second fixture to be played at Anfield.

Frustrated Reds look to down out-of-form Baggies – Liverpool vs. West Brom Preview
Henry Jackson
Match PreviewNews
12 December
Liverpool are still smarting from Sunday’s Merseyside derby draw, and Jurgen Klopp‘s side will be desperate for three points at home to West Brom.


Liverpool vs. West Brom

Wednesday, December 13, 2017 — 8pm (GMT)
Anfield
Premier League
Referee: Paul Tierney

Just when you think everything is going swimmingly, Liverpool somehow go and drop points against a cynical, defensive-minded Everton.

Quite how Sam Allardyce’s team took a 1-1 draw from Anfield remains a mystery, but it is a result that cannot afford to derail the Reds’ momentum.

The games keep coming thick and fast, with a beleaguered West Brom side making the trip to Anfield for a midweek Premier League clash.

The Baggies are without a win in 15 games, going all the way back to August, and Alan Pardew is still taking time to settle having replaced Tony Pulis as manager.

All on eyes will be on Klopp on Wednesday, having cut an angry figure after the weekend’s match.

The manager has taken plenty of flak for his selection in the derby, and there are sure to be more changes made on Wednesday, as the manager retains a freshness within his squad.

If the Reds can see off West Brom, and do the same to Bournemouth at Dean Court on Sunday, the Everton game will all be forgotten about.

A potentially freezing cold Anfield awaits its latest hosting duties—hopefully a huge response is on show by those brilliant but infuriating Reds.

Last Meeting: West Brom 0-1 Liverpool

Liverpool 0-0 West Brom: Reds held after another controversial referee decision
Jack Lusby
Match ReportsNews
13 December 2017
Liverpool once again found their fortunes in the hands of the officials as they were held to a frustrating 0-0 draw at home to West Brom on Wednesday.

Liverpool 0-0 West Brom

Premier League, Anfield
December 13, 2017


The frustrations of Sunday’s 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby couldn’t rest long, with Liverpool back in action just three days later, taking on West Brom at Anfield.

Left ruing their late concession to Everton, the Reds headed into their midweek clash amid a paradoxical, flattened mood, with a 10-game unbeaten run undermined by the manner of their last result.

But as their busy festive period continued Klopp’s side kept their focus on the task at hand, and the German continued to rotate his selection, making six changes to his starting lineup.

The inclusion of Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino gave the Reds further quality in the final third, but they couldn’t make it count.

They struggled last night i saw most of the game and really not on form a few near misses but a very lack lustre of a game .

Hope we are not going to resume a load of draws until we start scoring decent goals.

Coutinho shines, Henderson recovers & Cherries have no comeback:

5 talking points from Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool
James Nalton 17 December 2017

Liverpool continued their free-scoring away form with four fantastic goals and a clean sheet to boot.
Bournemouth 0-4 Liverpool

Goals: Coutinho 20′, Lovren 26′, Salah 44′, Firmino 66′

Premier League, Dean Court

Will the real Coutinho please stand up

In the previous game against West Brom the Brazilian schemer appeared to be forcing the issue, playing passes through channels which had already closed.

But down on the south coast he was able to force the issue in a different way.

Stepping up to take a free kick in the first-half he was inches away from opening the scoring as his neat curler hit the post.

He’s increasingly specialising in such set-piece situations, and can now execute them in a number of different ways thanks to the hours of training ground practice.

Cant read much in to that win but nice to return to winning ways. Good to see the Ox and Robertson play well. Souness thought Hendo played well and would of given him man of the match. Must admit that baffled me but they get to see his off the ball stuff.
A few head aches what with Llana returning and Mane on the bench. Still plenty of games to go at. My only gripe is id of been thinking of Arsenal at 3-0 and began resting players a bit sooner.

Jurgen Klopp on Liverpool’s “obvious problem” and Simon Mignolet’s error in Arsenal draw

Jurgen Klopp admitted Liverpool have an “obvious problem” after they conceded three goals in five minutes before salvaging a 3-3 draw at Arsenal.
Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah had put Liverpool in control but Alexis Sanchez, Granit Xhaka and Mesut Ozil all struck for Arsenal in their madcap five-minute spell at the Emirates Stadium.

Roberto Firmino then struck to ensure the spoils would be shared but Reds boss Klopp was frustrated by his side’s defensive frailties coming to the fore once again.

Klopp said: “We, of course, deserved to win. We had more chances.

“But to lose three goals in five minutes, it’s an obvious problem. That’s how it is.

“Individual problems for all the goals. Misjudgement for the second goal, the third one we let him get in the box too easy.

“Then after these five minutes we reacted much better and deserved the points. The result is not what we wanted. And the five minutes were very decisive.”

Jurgen Klopp rules Jordan Henderson out of Liverpool vs. Swansea City
Jack Lusby
News
23 December 2017
Jurgen Klopp has ruled Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson out of their Boxing Day clash with Swansea City, due to a hamstring injury.


Henderson limped off the field after just 10 minutes in Friday night’s 3-3 draw away to Arsenal, struggling to run off a strain.

Taking his place, James Milner operated alongside Emre Can and Philippe Coutinho in Klopp’s midfield, as a dramatic back-and-forth between top-four rivals played out.

With the Reds provided little time to come up for air during their intense festive schedule, Klopp previewed the upcoming meeting with Swansea while at the Emirates.

And the 50-year-old seemed confident Henderson would miss out, despite no scans being undertaken on his hamstring immediately after the game.

“The problem is that Hendo will not feature for sure,” he explained.

“He’s out. That makes it even worse, the feeling of tonight, because we were really OK with injuries.

“And now it happened at the beginning of this period, or the middle of the period, whatever.

mignolet has had 5 years of chances and let us down time after time and his next mistake is permanently just around the corner,karius looks a bag of nerves and equally unreliable,i say give danny ward a run of games and see how he gets on and if he lets us down get shut of all three and bring in a new set of goalies and start from scratch

“Five goals, clean sheet, job done” — Fans react to Liverpool’s 5-0 thrashing of Swansea
Emma Sanders 26 December 2017
Liverpool continued their busy festive schedule with an impressive 5-0 victory over relegation strugglers Swansea at Anfield on Boxing Day.

Liverpool 5-0 Swansea City
Premier League, Anfield

Goals: Coutinho 5′, Firmino 49′, 66′, Alexander-Arnold 65′, Oxlade-Chamberlain 82′

Liverpool were without skipper Jordan Henderson but Georginio Wijnaldum, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joel Matip were all handed starts as Jurgen Klopp made four changes to the side.

Simon Mignolet, after his highly criticised performance against Arsenal just four days previous, kept his place in goal, though Sadio Mane was left out.

Philippe Coutinho, wearing the armband in Henderson’s absence, scored an absolute screamer within five minutes but the first half then began to fizzle out.

Roberto Firmino got his first goal of the game early in the second-half, before he netted a second just one minute after Trent Alexander-Arnold smashed in an unstoppable strike in front of the Kop.

Oxlade-Chamberlain wrapped it up with a late fifth goal for the Reds.

Here are all the best reactions to the victory from Liverpool fans on social media…
