The Benefits Of The Newly Pragmatic Liverpool

The Benefits Of The Newly Pragmatic Liverpool

You wait all season for a four-goal romp and two come in the same week. Typical. The opening game against West Ham’s glacial midfield aside, the Reds have been strangely reticent in front of goal this term and it was beginning to get to people. Why I know not. Last season we were spoilt. Seven goals salvos here, five-goal lead in European Cup semi-finals there. The front three went mad. A lad who most didn’t want came from Arsenal and …
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 …

On Sunday, Manchester United will play their first game away from home in 2018/19, and it's a trip to the seaside all the way to the South of England. Brighton and Hove Albion did incredibly well under Chris Hughton to manage survival last season but given the rising quality of the league including the newly promoted sides, it does look like the Seagulls, on paper, are once again set to be involved in a relegation scrap by April. If anything, …

With 31 points through 28 matches, Brighton are right on course to reach their goal of staying in the Premier League this season.  With 40 points being the traditional goal for safety, the Seagulls need three more wins in their last 10 matches.  They do have five matches against the big six in those last 10, so they'd like to be able to win one of those to give themselves some security.  Of the big six, Arsenal are the easiest …

Brighton vs Chelsea Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Chelsea have had an intense schedule since the beginning of December and it wasn't helped by an unneeded FA Cup replay ahead of their Premier League meeting with Brighton. They managed to triumph to the next round, but it took extra time and penalties which will have further fatigued the players. This is a great time to play the champions and the home side have to look for a positive result. Home advantage will be a huge positive and they …

Chelsea haven’t managed to put together a strong defence of their title, but they have a good opportunity to make ground this weekend against relegation-threatened Brighon.

Pascal Gross has been an underrated signing and he has given the Seagulls a great chance of achieving success in the current campaign. The Blues were expected to challenge for …

The last time Brighton & Hove Albion played against Liverpool in a league match, the match finished as a 2-2 draw but the Reds were headed towards a comfortable league title win and Brighton were also headed towards the bottom of the league.
