What is Liverpool's best defensive duo? | Stats comparison

The current season is full of mixed feelings for Liverpool fans. The Reds play wonderful football and destroy their opponents one week and a few days later suffer a horrible defeat in a match they should have won. There are some positives as Brendan Rodger's team scores much more goals than Kenny' team last year and Luis Suarez seems to be contending for player of the year award whilst Steven Gerrard has regained the form that made him renowned as one …

QPR 0 Liverpool 3 | Match & Stats Report

Brendan Rodgers was not present at Liverpool's 0-3 thrashing of QPR at Loftus Road due to illness, but his absence was hardly felt.

Liverpool V Bolton | Preview

Liverpool take on Bolton, in the late kick-off, on Saturday with Reds fans hoping for another three points.  In previous years Liverpool have struggled against so called 'lesser opposition' at home, most memorably in the 2008-09 season, where it could be argued that the seven draws at home cost Liverpool their first league title in 19 years (see below). Those draws came against Stoke (0-0), Fulham (0-0), West Ham (0-0), Hull City (2-2), Everton (1-1), Man City (1-1) and Arsenal …
