Liverpool (3) AFC Bournemouth (1): Finishing the Difference as Reds Keep Cup Dream Alive

After missing more chances than I care to mention during the loss to Manchester United at the weekend, it’s a bit surprising to say that Premier League level finishing was the difference as Liverpool ran out deserved winners at Dean Court today. A pair of goals from Raheem Sterling, who missed more than his fair…

AFC Bournemouth League Cup Preview: Scrub the Word Easy From Your Vocabulary

You’d think that Liverpool would have some sort of advantage running out in a League Cup quarter-final against a side plying their trade in the Championship, but with the Reds recent results contrasting greatly to those of their lower league hosts, there won’t be anything easy about it. While the Anfield outfit was coming up…

Liverpool (0) Manchester United (3): The Difference is There to See

By the time the final whistle was blown, you’d have to wonder exactly what we have to do to finally score. With the echoes of Kenny Dalglish’s final season in charge of Liverpool ringing out as loud as it was clear, the Reds created everything, but came away with nothing as a clinical Manchester United…

Manchester United Preview: Building it Up by Tearing it Down

No one ever wants to lose this fixture; I don’t say this often, but I think I speak for both sets of supporters when I say that we don’t need Sky Sports, Mark Lawrensen or anyone else to convince us of our mutual dislike for one another. It’s not like anyone would let us forget,…

Manchester United Buildup: Van Gaal isn’t Impressed, Evans Short Attention Span and Falcao the Lionheart

Manchester United must be feeling pretty confident heading into Sunday’s meeting with bitter rivals Liverpool. Less than 24-hours after taking care of Premier League high-fliers Southampton to secure a much needed momentum boost, they got to look on as the Reds dropped tamely out of the Champions League with only a single win to their…

Liverpool’s shattering loss at the hands of bitter rivals Manchester United may still be fresh in the memory for the fans, but heading into the League Cup quarter-final with Championship leaders AFC Bournemouth later on today, the Reds focus has quickly shifted to not only on progressing to the semi-finals, but winning the lot of it.

Staying home

Heading into today’s League Cup quarter-final with AFC Bournemouth, Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers won’t have too much of a selection headache on his hands with both Mario Balotelli and Glen Johnson adding their names to an already substantial injury list.

The Italian striker, who had only just returned to the squad after six matches out to play the second of Sunday’s loss at Old Trafford, has been ruled out of the trip to Dean Court to allow his groin injury, which he aggravated during his cameo, more time to fully heal. The focus may be on tomorrow’s clash with the Championship leaders, but the Reds also have another important match coming up at the weekend when they host Arsenal in the Premier League.

Ba is watching you

The next round of the Europa League may not start until the New Year, but Besiktas striker Demba Ba has wasted no time warning his team-mates of the threat that Liverpool pose after the two sides were drawn together in the Round of 32 yesterday.

The Reds may have arrived in Europe’s second tier competition in a roundabout way by parachuting out of the Champions League following their third place finish in Group B, but the former Chelsea man isn’t about to discount the 3-time winners inclusion in the competition. “It’s a difficult pairing. Liverpool are having some hard times now,” he told the UEFA website following the draw. “They couldn’t get the results they desired and things are not going well for them. Hard games are ahead of us.”

Last time on Liverpool vs. Bournemouth

You’d think that Liverpool would have some sort of advantage running out in a League Cup quarter-final against a side plying their trade in the Championship, but with the Reds recent results contrasting greatly to those of their lower league hosts, there won’t be anything easy about it.

While the Anfield outfit was coming up scoreless in the draw with Sunderland and the loss away to bitter rivals Manchester United, the Cherries were carrying on a twelve match unbeaten run that’s seen them put five past recently relegated Cardiff City, sneak past perennial challengers Wolves and hold a gritty Millwall side to a 2-2 draw. You may be able to pass that off as Championship clubs playing Championship football, but to be fair, our standard hasn’t been all that much higher.

Danny can’t wait

There’s been a lot of talk about football players and social media lately, but Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge has kept his nose clean when out and about on the internet with the 25-year old using his Instagram account to pine for a return to action.
