Reds Seek Win At Spurs

Image
With barely a second to rest after their tie with Swansea this weekend the Reds make the trip to London on Wednesday evening to face Andre Villas Boas' Tottenham side. Liverpool have a strong unbeaten run at the moment in the league but find themselves requiring goals.

Tottenham are unable to call upon striker Adebayor who is still out through suspension. Spurs also have a growing injury list with Ekotto, Kaboul, Parker and Benoit all out. Sandro is available though after picking up a stomach injury during their recent West Ham fixture.

For Liverpool things are still pretty much the same. Encouragingly Lucas Leiva featured with the reserves this week but is still not ready for the first team and Andre Wisdom has recovered from a knee injury he picked up in the Europa League.

Tottenham are currently 7th in the league whilst Liverpool find themselves in 11th. Only 4 points separate the two teams though and Liverpool will certainly be looking to close the gap during this difficult a…

Suarez Sublime In Norwich Win

Finally, the Reds can chalk up a victory in the Premier League under boss Brendan Rodgers and in some style too. Rodgers after clearly being impressed by some of his youngsters filtering through the side went for a rather different starting XI against Norwich on Saturday, add to this that Suarez was on song, it was a comfortable victory for Liverpool with the only downside being that they conceded.

Rodgers gave Suso and Wisdom their first Premier League starts whilst opting to play Raheem Sterling once again. Also included was Sahin who scored two against West Brom in the league cup.

Possession according to the BBC ended up 50/50 after the 90 minutes but vitally for Liverpool this time they had maintained their portion of the ball and made sure they hit the back of the net at the same time.

Luis Suarez immediately cemented his love for Carrow Road just 2 minutes in. Glen Johnson cut inside and attempted to play a ball through to Sahin but he couldn't quite collect, the defensive …

Youth Thrive In Goal Fest

Liverpool turned the tables on Young Boys on Thursday evening after their manager suggested it was the Reds that may find themselves embarrassed. Eventually though after the enthralling fixture ended in a 5-3 Liverpool win it was the home side left red faced.

Brendan left several Liverpool regulars at home and I must apologise for the match preview because I read that Raheem Sterling was also left at home when in fact he was on the bench. Pacheco started up front and the only real experience in the side was the likes of Jamie Carragher and Stewart Downing.

It didn't take long for the games first goal to appear which isn't surprising now knowing it ended with 8 goals. The home side actually gifted Liverpool a head start after a comedic mix up in their defence. A cross from Stewart Downing was relatively unchallenged by any Liverpool players but an attempted clearance ended up smacking defender  Ojala in the face and going into the back of the net. Hilarious.

What made me laugh…
