Liverpool Snatch a Win Over Leicester City in Stoppage Time

Liverpool Snatch a Win Over Leicester City in Stoppage Time

For the second game in four days, Liverpool established a first-half lead, squandered it in the second half and then scrambled, in the end, to snatch a win at the end of the game. Against RB Salzburg in the Champions League on Wednesday night, Mohammed Salah’s 69th-minute winner was required to secure a win after the Champions League winners from last season had scored 3 first-half goals. Against Leicester City in the Premier League today, the league leaders needed a …
Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

Liverpool Again Come Up Short at Napoli

“Don’t you worry, if you lose in Naples, then you end up winning the Champions League!", said Carlo Ancelotti to Jurgen Klopp after his side had beaten Liverpool in a game that could have gone either way. The reigning European Champions had traveled to Naples to begin their 2019-20 European campaign. It is fair to say that their defense did not begin on a great note. For the first 80 minutes it was difficult to point to a team in …
Liverpool Overcome Initial Wobble Against Newcastle to Keep Up Their Perfect Start

Liverpool Overcome Initial Wobble Against Newcastle to Keep Up Their Perfect Start

Premier League football returned today to Anfield, with Liverpool hosting Newcastle United for a lunch-time kickoff. But, instead of discussing the upcoming game, TV pundits Paul Scholes and Michael Owen were discussing whether Salah is obsessed with his goals or not. Ignoring stats that prove otherwise, they went on discussing how Salah’s apparent selfishness can cost Liverpool in a tight title race. Well if there is any residual friction from the incident at Turf Moor, it was not evident at …
Liverpool and Mohamed Salah Thrash Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium

Liverpool and Mohamed Salah Thrash Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium

Two years and four days ago, when Liverpool travelled to the Vitality stadium to play Bournemouth, they were in the second position, had won 9 out of 13 games and had just lost a single game. More importantly, they were just one point off the league leaders of the time – Chelsea. And Liverpool needed to win at Bournemouth for them to maintain the pressure on the Blues from London. Till the 75th minute in that game, it indeed seemed …
Liverpool Go Top of the Table with a 4-1 Win over Cardiff City

Liverpool Go Top of the Table with a 4-1 Win over Cardiff City

Liverpool and Cardiff City like to play high scoring games. The past three games between these two sides had yielded more than four goals per game. Moreover, newly promoted Cardiff were travelling to the fortress of Anfield and Liverpool had just dispatched Red Star Belgrade 4-0 in the midweek game in Champions League. So, it was expected that the result of today’s game would be a high-scoring Liverpool win. That is what it turned out to be. The only wrinkle …
First Half Goals Help Liverpool Overcome Leicester

First Half Goals Help Liverpool Overcome Leicester

Liverpool travelling to King Power Stadium, a one-goal win was going to be the most likely result. That’s how three of their last four trips to Leicester had ended. But, for Liverpool, a win at Leicester has never been an easy affair. This too was a game where the Reds had to play out of their skins at the end to hang on to that one-goal margin, just like the previous three wins. What looked like a comfortable cruise at …
Liverpool Squeeze Out a Hard-Fought Win Against a Well-Organised Brighton

Liverpool Squeeze Out a Hard-Fought Win Against a Well-Organised Brighton

It was supposed to be an easy victory for Liverpool tonight. The Reds had not lost at Anfield in more than a season and they had not conceded even a single goal at home since February. As the game ended tonight, both those streaks remained unbroken, but just barely. Brighton and Hove Albion, fresh from the win against Manchester United, gave the Reds a great fight and in the end, it was only a single defensive error and a beautiful …
Manchester United and Arsenal Play out a Borefest in Wenger's Finale

Manchester United and Arsenal Play out a Borefest in Wenger's Finale

Lacking in intensity and urgency, the final game between Manchester United and Arsene Wenger's Arsenal was everything the fixture had been reduced to in the last decade.  As Arsene Wenger was welcomed with a standing ovation and a short commemoration ceremony that involved former Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson and the incumbent manager Jose Mourinho (slightly reluctantly, if I may) congratulating the Frenchman on a fine career, there was a sharp indication as to how little the game that …
