Liverpool 5 Arsenal 1

Another day, another game, another win. That’ll do nicely as they used to say. Had to come from behind at home to win for the first time in nearly a year but what a comeback? Bobby got a match ball, Mo got a pen and Mane got a goal. Frightening football times and the Anfield noise would have woken the dead.

Liverpool 4 Newcastle 0

Boxing Day football is like the great escape from the Christmas masses and one of the reasons you want to get away from it is to see Liverpool play like they did in the this game, certainly in the second half. After Lovren hammered home the first the nerves settled but when Mo made it two from the spot it was time to relax and enjoy the Christmas Fare. Shaq is well and truly in our hearts and to make it a really wonderful Christmas time Fab made it four. Superb stuff and an atmosphere you just want to be a part of.

Wolves 0 Liverpool 2

That’ll do nicely.  Another tough away day negotiated. Being top at Christmas doesn’t count apart from on Sky but it’s a good feeling. It wasn’t perfect because we were a bit sloppy at times but we got away with it but in general it was fine. Another Mo goal and VvD – well we watch him defend and now we watch him score!!!!!

 

Liverpool 3 Manchester United 1

There was a time when it looked like we’d busted a gut for nothing. The first half an hour was so one-sided the game had all the makings of a mismatch but we’d only scored once.  A rare bungle by Ally and it was one-all, game on and all to play for as they say.  We never stopped though, it was graft, graft and more graft but it didn’t look as if we’d get our reward.  Klopp sent on Shaq, game changer? Maybe, maybe not but whatever the visitors from the squalor junctions of the M62 were suddenly down and out as he banged in two albeit with the help of a couple deflections but who cared? Anfield wallowed in Mancunian misery; what a wonderful world this is.

Liverpool 1 Napoli 0

Thank god for the hands of Alisson; his save in the dying embers put us into the knockouts and made the club maybe another £20m in TV rights.  Sadio Mane missed enough chances in this game to have had us all in a state of panic, which we were, till Ally made the save. On another day Mane might have scored six but we had to settle for one from Mo and left the ground with our fingernails reduced so much they were almost our knuckles.  Still, it’s what football’s all about innit?

Bournemouth 0 Liverpool 4

We’ve come a long way since that fateful day…the day we lost 4-3 after being 3-1 up & coasting.  We might not have coasted in this one but we probably still had a bit of juice left come the end of a comprehensive four goal win. Might Mo [again] scored three and we welcomed an own goal. No we didn’t coast but we just kept the locals at a safe distance and went top of the pile.

Burnley 1 Liverpool 3

Cold wet night in Burnley; not a nice thought but we got through despite going a goal down early in the second half. Milner, Firminho and Shaq scored our goals but the Joe Gomez broken legs marred the occasion.
