The Reds welcome Southampton to Anfield on Wednesday evening as they look to break a poor run of form and turn their 1-0 deficit around. Liverpool's recent loss to Swansea created major damage to their already dwindling title hopes. With the Saints semi-final followed by an FA Cup tie with Wolves then Chelsea in the league.
It was a dire performance from the Reds at St Mary's on Wednesday evening as they failed to find the back of the net against an inspired Southampton side.
A strong team put out by Klopp was unable to produce any real efforts leaving the Saints keeper with nothing to do all game. In contrast, Liverpool's man between the sticks Loris Karius was arguably the only player worthy of praise on the night.
I haven't posted since the massively frustrating draw with Sunderland so I thought I'd take this opprtunity to do a sort of catch up post while looking forward to Liverpool's next three fixtures in the FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League.
I never saw the Sunderland match so it's not my place to offer an opinion really, what I will say is that I knew we'd slip up against them, it's just bloody typical Liverpool isn't it?
I don't want to stand here and accuse Jurgen Klopp of having a lack or experience or judgement because that's just ludicrous but after a frustrating result against Villarreal right in the dying moments on Thursday evening, it's hard not to feel that the manager was perhaps just a little naive on this occasion.
Liverpool are through to the final of the league cup after winning 6-5 on penalties at Anfield on Tuesday evening. After 90 minutes it was an offside goal from Arnautovic which forced the game to extra time and eventually the dreaded spot kicks.
Liverpool prepare to face Jose Mourinho's Chelsea at Anfield on Tuesday evening as the Reds look to get the better of the Blues in the first leg of this very important League Cup semi-final. With Liverpool's season not exactly going perfectly to plan, the chance of silverware is a very attractive prospect for the Anfield faithful who will feel it is their best chance of glory this season.
Wash the stink off... VANCOUVER VS. TORONTO (1-2 AGG.) CANADIAN CHAMPIONSHIP SEMI FINAL 2ND LEG BC PLACE FIRST HALF: 1' - BC Place roof is open this evening. Perfect for a localized tornado strike if Vancouver grabs a lead.
It's the cheesiest!!! ï»¿MONTREAL (0) VS. TORONTO (2)VOYAGEURS CUP SEMI-FINAL 2ND LEG ã€€ STADE SAPUTO - WEDNESDAY 7:30PM TV: SPORTSNET ONE ã€€ THE KICKABOUT: The only real story to look out for in this 2nd Leg matchup is whether or not Montreal manager Marco Schallibaum sticks to his guns and continues to undervalue The Voyageurs Cup.
I was hesitant about writing a FAC SF post with the prospect of Spurs awaiting us in the Final. Amusingly, that is no longer the case as the Hotspurs take yet another sad drag home along the North Circular
So, it is with a lighter heart that I write this post.
Let's kick off with my belief that we can beat City.
Semi Final 2nd Leg Persib v Pusamania 2-1 (Shohei Matsunaga, Atep; Dirkir Kohn Glay) 25,598 Despite losing the 1st leg in Samarinda by 2-1, and surviving an all out assault by the home side relatively intact, Persib fans were out early queuing for tickets for this game as they sought to keep the trophy they won back in 2015.
Last nights Copa Sudamericana Semi-Final clash between great Argentine rivals River Plate and Boca Juniors lived up to it's billing as River Plate beat their great rivals 1-0 to reach the final at Boca's expense!
The eagerly awaited second leg of El Superclásico was certainly a feisty encounter with no fewer than 12 yellow cards and a red as the referee tried to keep things civil, and relationship's got no better at the final whistle as some Boca players fought with fans on the pitch though they could be forgiven given the circumstances?
