Reports came out of Uruguay last week that Liverpool forward, and the Premier League’s best player last season, needed surgery on his knee and that his participation in the upcoming World Cup in Brazil was in jeopardy. Throngs of people swarmed to see him leave the hospital last Thursday after his procedure in the hopes of getting a glimpse of Uruguay’s magician and to see if he was really O.K. after surgery. Now, it looks like Suarez will be healthy and ready to take on England, which includes five of his Liverpool teammates.

“I spoke to him [Suarez] in the week,” Liverpool and England right back told the BBC. “He doesn’t think that it is that bad so he thinks he will be OK.”

It was a game that Liverpool needed only a point from. A game that Chelsea really needed to win in order to stay in the title race. Brendan Rodgers didn’t back in down in trying to go straight at Chelsea from the off and take the game by the scruff of the neck. His Liverpool side did face two resilient lines of four as Chelsea camped out twenty yards from goal. Demba Ba and Willian capitalized on two Liverpool mistakes to hand the title initiative back to Manchester City. Continue reading

The build up to Norwich away was all about taking the same intensity from the Manchester City game and applying it to the lowly canaries. 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.

Having overcome Manchester City last weekend, Liverpool has the destiny of this season’s Premier League table in its own hands with just four games remaining.

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
