Liverpool are on the road again for the seventh time in ten matches when they travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham on Saturday evening; 5.30pm kick off UK time. The Reds’ last trip to the capital ended with a 1-4 defeat against Spurs and our domestic record away from home this season has...

A 3-0 win, a missed penalty, 23 shots, barely any conceded, again … we’re really performing like an elite team over a hefty sample: that’s not the narrative though. We can’t defend. To barely concede the value of a half chance over 180 minutes of football in the last four days is quite something,...

What is the perfect tonic to go with the poisonousness gin we tasted at Wembley last week? The next opposition turning up, attempting one shot on goal, and not even getting that on target. It certainly helps with those questioning the inclusion of the goalkeeper! But after 45 minutes, a missed pe...

Four games ago, Liverpool were scoring little over a goal per game (in the run following the thrashing of Arsenal), and were missing too many chances. And, up until four games ago, the Reds weren’t keeping clean sheets. Since then, Jürgen Klopp’s men have scored eleven, and in only one of the fou...

This week’s posts selected by Chris Rowland and Daniel Rhodes. 1 – Ding’s thoughts on us not signing a centre-back during the summer: In trying to assess how “poor” a decision not to get a CB in summer was, it should be borne in mind that our defensive record towards the end of last season was re...

These stats are 100% unofficial. I have had no formal training in how to collate them, but from years of working with football stats I have a pretty good idea of how they are gathered. Videos in this article are marked up for desktop only and are unlikely to work on other devices. The full video...
