Ahead of Spartak Moscow’s visit to Anfield tonight, let’s look at the last time Liverpool faced the Russian outfit at home. That game was back in the 2002/03 Champions League season, and the Reds won 5-0 thanks to a brace from Emile Heskey, who scored the first and last goals of the game.
The other scorers that evening were Bruno Cheyrou, Sami Hyypia and Salif Diago
40,812 were in attendance that evening (October 2, 2002) to watch Liverpool demolish Spartak Continue reading
Liverpool will be taking on Burnley this weekend, a little over six months after Jurgen Klopp’s men hosted the Clarets in the 16/17 season. On that occasion, the Reds put in a dire first performance but emerged 2-1 winners thanks to second half goals from Can and Wijnaldum. It wasn’t pretty, but they got the job done.
Going into this weekend, both teams have 7 points, but Burnley are ahead of Liverpool in the league table on goal difference. LFC, of course, will be looking to recover from their poor results against Man City and Sevilla. Continue reading
It was Liverpool’s first Champions League game since 2014, and defensive frailties again came to haunt the Reds as Spanish side Sevilla, on paper their only real opponents for top spot in what otherwise seems to be an easy group, came away with a draw from Anfield.
Roberto Firmino also missed a penalty as Liverpool spurned a host of chances in the two sides’ first competitive meeting since the 2016 Europa League final, which Sevilla won 3-1 in Basel.
Sevilla could’ve even come away with all three points had Luis Muriel not fluffed his lines in stoppage time Continue reading
Remember Jose Enrique? The former Newcastle & Liverpool left back has called it a day due to persistent injuries at the age of just 31. Here is one of our favourites moments of him in a LFC jersey- his part in a great team goal against Swansea Continue reading
A great win for Liverpool in the first leg of their Champions League playoff tie against Julian Nagelsmann’s TSH 1899 at the Rhein Neckar Arena. Hoffenheim had not lost at home since May 2016 and the Reds were up against it, especially given the absences of Adam Lallana and Philippe Coutinho.
However a fantastic free kick from Trent-Alexander Arnold and an own goal from Havard Nordtveit (although Milner would prefer to claim it as his!) saw the Reds come away with a 2-1 win ahead of the return leg at Anfield.
And not to forget the efforts of the much maligned Simon Mignolet, who saved Andrej Kramaric’s first half penalty and kept the Reds in the tie. Continue reading
Liverpool finished fourth and secured a spot in the playoff rounds of the Champions League after beating relegated Middlesbrough 3-0 on the final day of the season.
The Reds pipped Arsenal, who beat Everton 3-1 despite losing Koscielny to a red early in the game, to fourth spot. The Gunners finished fifth while the trio of Chelsea, Spurs and Man City finished first, second and third respectively Continue reading
