November - The run continues

Newcastle 1-0
BATE 2-0
Stoke 2-0
Norwich 2-0
Juventus 1-0
Chelsea 2-0

Approaching the half way point of the season, Liverpool...the team still gong strong would be looking to widen the gap at the top of the table in the month of November, to get that ever important advantage over the other sides in the Premier League in the first half of the season.

With injuries plaguing the side, Rodgers had some thinking to do. The reds' next match was up against Newcastle, which couldn't have come any sooner for an unfit Liverpool side. The tiredness did not matter to them it seems however, as it had no effect on performance. The reds ran out 1-0 winners and got themselves an extra three points on the board.

Then it was off to Belarus, where a Liverpool would have the chance to qualify with just 9 points in their group. However Atletico had to beat Juventus. Liverpool, came out as 2-0 winners against BATE with an early goal from Aspas and FINALLY a late goal for none other than Luis Suarez! Could this be the end to his goal drought? Sadly, Atletico drew, and Juve were handed a point. Liverpool would need to gain at least a point away to the Old lady, if they were to qualify a little earlier than expected.

Back to the Premier League, and once again, the tiredness of Rodgers' squad was no burden at all, they dominated Stoke city at the Britannia stadium, winning 2-0, Raheem Sterling put in a performance of the highest quality notching 2 goals to win the game...The talented English winger is showing real signs of improvement this season.

It was just a few days later that Sterling had the chance to show this was no fluke, and he did so! Although he went the game without scoring, he was one of Liverpool's best players. Daniel Agger got Liverpool's 1st goal, before a Bradley Johnson own goal sent Norwich home with nothing worthy of merit in their performance.

The big game was finally here, and it was time for the two 'buddies' Rodgers and COnte to meet once more. This game would seal Juve's fate, could they win and stay in the group with hope of qualification? Or would they fall to the knees of Liverpool and bow out of the competition?
Of course, Liverpool were on fine form, and all though playing the better football, Juventus fans were left in tears as they were sent into the round of 32, in the Europa League.

The final game of the month, would be played at Anfield against title challengers Chelsea! Liverpool were for the 4th time this season gifted a lucky 31st minute own goal from Cech to make the score 1-0.
A penalty was also then conceded by Chelsea in the 80th minute and star player Rakitic sent Chelsea packing without the 3 points they wanted. Liverpool may have gotten lucky, but their performance was certainly of the highest class, Chelsea had nothing positive to take from the game, and solid centre back Sakho ensured that. an 8.2 rating earned him the man of the match of the award. Not the first time this season mind you.

And who said Liverpool can't beat the big teams?

Champions League group B:

A fantastic month for the mighty Reds which has created a bit of a gap which I am sure you will increase in no time!
Squeaky clean month! You're on fire!
James: It was a brilliant month, and I can't wait to see how far we can really go! Let's win this thing!;)

Paddy: Was a brilliant month, but you ain't seen nothing yet!;) We are gunna tear it up this season! ...Well, we already are;)


Just to let you know guys, there will be no Prem table up until about February/March! I took the screenshots of the table but for some reason they have been deleted! No idea why!
Wooooowww, great month! Unstoppable Liverpool! What does Pellegrini say now?
you're doing very good mate. keep it up!
Adrian: Pellegrini can piss off! Haha, COYR!:D

AAN: Will do lad, cheers!
good results!!! I love your updates

December - The Christmas Spirit

Cardiff 4-1
Aston Villa 3-1
Atletico 2-1
Arsenal 3-1
Newcastle 1-1p
Manchester City 1-1
Everton 2-1
West Ham 1-1

Liverpool will be full of festive cheer, and will have every right to rejoice after this month. With 15 points out of 18 they will sit top of the table for another month, and for the New year.

In the first game of the month, Cardiff would welcome Liverpool to the Cardiff City stadium, looking to break their unbeaten run in the premier league this season, the team from Wales would have it all to do if they had any chance. However, Liverpool had other ideas, with 4 goals in 40 minutes, they were already 4-0 up and Cardiff were cruising for a bruising. They did manage to get a goal back in the 41st minute through Cornelius. Yarmolenko, Sterling, and Coutinho all scored for the Reds, as Steven Caulker conceded an own goal.

Still on a win streak of 10 games, Aston Villa were the next to get flattened by Liverpool. The full time score ended 3-1 as Liverpool earned yet another 3 points this season. They really do seem serious about this title challenge.

Now they would play Atletico in their last Champions League group game. With a loss away from home last time out, they'd be looking to win this one and get their revenge, but it was Atletico that seemed to want it more as they ran out 2-1 winners, Liverpool still finished top...but their run of 11 wins in a row was over.

Back in the Premier League though, they won AGAIN! This time at Anfield against 10th in the league Arsenal. Sakho scored the first of the game, and it was only Oxlade-Chamberlain would finish them off with two goals! The winger did stay classy, and kept his celebrations to low excitement. We couldn't say the same for the other Red men on the team though!

The capital one cup quarter final, would now be played against Newcastle, for the first time this season, and English side really gave them a terrific game and did end up going to win on penalties. Liverpool will be kicking themselves after this game, although it is just one less competition to think about.

Manchester City would be the ones, too break Liverpool's win streak in the prem, holding them to a 1-1 draw, Liverpool then went on to beat Everton 2-1 at home, before being held to another 1-1 draw by West Ham.

A great month for Liverpool, not as great as the last but with all the fixture congestion, they have every right to be proud of their performances in the month of December. They can now go home to their families for Christmas and New year, and recouperate.
