Realistically that was always going to be a big ask seeing as the emotional and physical drain that the previous Sunday must have taken out of Brendan Rodgers and his team.

Sundays win over Manchester City could prove to be crucial in deciding where the title ends up. It was a game that had everything. A rampaging Liverpool team that ripped City apart for the first twenty-five minutes. A comeback from the visitors that rocked the home team and truly tested their spirit and character and an amazing winner from a little Brazilian magician. It was an appropriate way to mark the ninety-six lives lost at Hillsborough. A tragedy that will be twenty-five years old on Tuesday April 15th. Continue reading

Last Sunday’s 2-1 win over West Ham United at Upton Park was yet another landmark victory for Liverpool in a season of sublime strikes, (at times) dreadful defending and staggering statistics. In one way it was just another three Premier League points gained. In another way, it was another massive hurdle jumped in this most barnstorming of campaigns. The simple fact it was Liverpool’s ninth win on the bounce illustrates how well Liverpool has been performing of late. Continue reading

Brendan Rodgers watched his side scrape a deserved win over lowly Sunderland on Wednesday evening. The win was fully deserved but the reds made it difficult for themselves by inviting pressure late on. A stunning Steven Gerrard free-kick in the first half and a John Barnes-esque curler from Daniel Sturridge made it 2-0 early in the second half. Ki Sung pulled one back for Sunderland who threatened late on through Adam Johnson but John O’Shea failed to direct his header on target.  Continue reading
