Crystal Palace Buildup: Warnock to Put One Over, McArthur’s in a Race and Kelly Wants the Points

Crystal Palace will be a bit sore at coming up shy against Manchester United just under fortnight ago when the Red Devils claimed a now increasingly rare win against Neil Warnock’s side, but the Eagles are back at it on Sunday and they’ll have another chance at scalping one of the big boys when Liverpool…

Liverpool (1) Chelsea (2): Third Loss in a Week Sees Reds Dip Even Lower

There’s no way to hide from the numbers; quality of opposition aside, losing three matches in the span of seven days is a tough go for any team, and when you’re Liverpool football club, it borders on unacceptable. It was Newcastle United last weekend, Real Madrid midweek and now Chelsea earlier today with a single…

Liverpool (0) Real Madrid (1): Points to Ponder as Reds Edged Out in Spain

By the time the team-sheet was announced, you’d have been excused for suggesting that Liverpool had sacrificed further progression in this season’s Champions League in order to focus on qualifying again next year. By the final whistle, it was hard to know how to feel. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers made wholesale changes to the side…

Liverpool (0) Newcastle United (1): Magpies Capitalize to Punish Sorry Reds

When the points are tallied up in May, six points can make a massive difference; following today’s reversal at the hands of a resurgent Newcastle United, there’s little doubt that things aren’t quite right at Anfield.

With Liverpool mired in the bottom half of the table going into December, it might seem a bit pie in the sky to be dreaming of a fourth place finish in May, but Reds midfielder Adam Lallana isn’t about to give up hope of securing Champions League football for a second successive season — or bagging a trophy to go along with it.

Get well soon

Despite suffering one injury setback already during his ten week absence, the news that Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is set to miss another six weeks with a new thigh problem has come as a shock to both the club and Kopites everywhere.

The 24-year old, who had returned to full training with the club ahead of Sunday’s trip to Selhurst Park, will now be on the treatment table for the foreseeable future — something that has devastated him according to Liverpool vice-captain Jordan Henderson. “It is a big blow, not only for the team but for him as well” he told ESPN FC when asked about the striker. “He is devastated, at a really low point really because he was looking forward to getting back playing. He felt good so it is disappointing for us as a team and him personally.”

More than five of each

Although he’s had a bit of a tough go at the back since joining Liverpool from Spanish side Sevilla over the summer, Reds fullback Alberto Moreno has looked electric going forward with his stunning solo effort against Tottenham Hotspur at the end of August standing as a goal of the season contender.

Ahead of Liverpool’s return to Premier League action against Crystal Palace  on Sunday, the 22-year has revealed that he has a natural instinct to go forward and will be looking to that it to contribute more in front of the net.  “All players love to score goals, especially me, because when I was younger I used to score regularly as I played further forward back then,” the defender told the clubs official website. “When I was a kid I played more as a winger or a wide attacking midfielder – not as a full-back. But I always like to score goals and above all, provide assists, which is what an attacking full-back has to do.”

Crystal Palace will be a bit sore at coming up shy against Manchester United just under fortnight ago when the Red Devils claimed a now increasingly rare win against Neil Warnock’s side, but the Eagles are back at it on Sunday and they’ll have another chance at scalping one of the big boys when Liverpool visit Selhurst Park this weekend.

With the Reds struggling all over the pitch, and the memory of throwing away a three goal lead in this fixture last season still fresh in the mind, you’d excuse any Palace fan that was feeling unusually confident going into this one. Daniel Sturridge, who was expected to feature, has had yet another injury set-back and Jordan Henderson, a mainstay in Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers side, is also a doubt with a hamstring injury. Things aren’t looking good for the Anfield outfit, but if you’re an Eagles supporter, this news is good news.

Another Lucas to Napoli story?

It seemed like the summer transfer window just closed, but we’re just over a month away from the winter one opening which means that Liverpool midfielder Lucas is going to be linked with a move to Italian side Napoli any minute now.

Well, that didn’t take long, now did it? The 27-year old, who has found time on the pitch hard to come by the last two seasons with Reds boss Brendan Rodgers preferring some sort of combination of Steven Gerrard, Joe Allen and Jordan Henderson, has been almost constantly linked with a reunion with former boss Rafa Benitez at the Serie A side. Lucas played up the interest earlier in the month and his agent hasn’t been shy about doubling down on that.
