Fine start to the season.
nice scores, good start, now keep Liverpool away from the relegationzone
What a good start, hope you keep it up ;)
Radders: Whatever the cost, it'll be done.

Pompey:Cheers mate, Rakitic is doing very well so far!

Bayern: T'was a very good start, hopefully we can keep up the good form and not let as much goals in.

Michael: Thanks mate, It'll be hard but it will be done! ;)

Zapdos: Cheers mate:) So do I:P
Nice signing in Rakitic, and some mixed results in pre-season, although you've started well in the league! Will you be looking at getting a new goalkeeper? Heard that Mignolet isn't very good on FM :P
Rakitic looks to have been an inspiring grab. Goal on his debut and 3 wins out of 3. Not too shabby! :P
Good start to the league, really enjoying it so far!
Remember though, you've only played West Ham and Crystal Palace ;)
Nick: Cheers Nick, he hasn't done great but he hasn't done bad so he will be part of my future plans however Jones is out for 4-5 months so...I need another keeper, preferably young.

P-KIDDY: Yes, he has done brilliantly so far and I hope he continues to show his class.

TK69: I know, I know;) I am not getting carried away but I'm determined to prove that my Liverpool squad is the best out there!;)
Great start to the season. Really enjoying this.

September - Average Performances

We started off really well in the premier league with wins against west Ham, and Aston Villa which saw us straight into the top four, a very good month attacking wise but not so great defensively. The month of September would bring our toughest challenge yet, with 2 games against Chelsea, And a game against Arsenal. We would also face Swansea & Aston Villa away from home.

Liverpool vs Arsenal

The first game of the month would be played at home to Arsenal. Arsenal had the likes of Cazorla and Ozil in their side along with Ramsey and Szczeseny. The entire Arsenal team had performed outstandingly in their first two games, but so did we and both sides were out to prove a point.

It was Liverpool, who made the breakthrough 33 minutes into the game with Iago Aspas, a well timed low cross from Sturridge would see the ball right to the feet of Aspas who made no mistake in striking the ball into an almost empty net, the score was 1-0 and we looked ready to score more.

Well, That we did as just 7 minutes later, Ivan Rakitic scored his second goal for Liverpool and wasn't it an important one. He all but won the game for us, as Arsenal just could not find a way back into the game. Liverpool knocked and knocked on the door but couldn't put the ball into the net, and for the next 45 minutes, it was just complete domination from Liverpool.

Man of the Match:: Ivan Rakitic
Goals: Liverpool: Aspas 33', Rakitic 40'

Aston Villa vs Liverpool

Our next game was against Aston Villa as we looked to get our 4th consecutive win in the league and our 5th of the season. It was a very exciting game with 5 goals scored. Benteke gave Villa the lead on the 43rd minute, but it didn't take long for Aspas to get firing again as in the 54th minute, he netted a fine finish whilst one on one against Guzan.

7 minutes later, Daniel Sturridge gave us the lead and it looked as if we were going to dominate the game and maybe net a few more, but it took only 13 minutes for Villa to equalise with a penalty from Benteke, it looked like Agger had ruined the game for me, the team and more importantly the fans.

BUT, the story wasn't over yet. Jordan Henderson, took a throw in right next to the oppositions left corner flag, before playing a sort of 1-2-3 with Aly Cissokho. Cissokho then rifled the ball over four Villa defenders and Iago Aspas only had one thing on his mind, which was to meet the ball at the other end, and he did so brilliantly thundering, the ball past Brad Guzan to win the game for Liverpool and to launch us to the top of the Premier League table.

Man of the Match: Iago Aspas
Goals: Liverpool: Aspas 54', 89', Sturridge 61',
Aston Villa: Benteke 43', 74'

Liverpool vs Swansea

Our winning streak could not go on forever, and like all good runs, it came to an end away to Swansea City. given that we were away it isn't such a bad result, but I had expected for us to at least get a point out of the game, but that wasn't the case.

Pablo Hernandez, scored the first of the game from a tight angle, powering the ball past Mignolet into the top corner. Mignolet really should have done A LOT better and I am thoroughly disappointed with the keeper. It really shouldn't have been a hard save for a keeper of his ablity.

Just 6 minutes later, Hernandez again, scored an almost identical goal where Mignolet once again failed to make an easy save, I think I'll have words with him after the game.

We did get a goal 2 minutes before the end of the game, Steven Gerrard (The only decent player on the pitch for us) was played through one on one by Sturridge and didn't think twice about smashing it home.

We played some good football towards the end and should have scored another, but our defense failed to see the point in getting the ball up the field and opted to keep it in our half.

Man of the Match: Pablo Hernandez
Goals: Liverpool: Steven Gerrard 88'
Swansea: Hernandez 37', 43'

Liverpool vs Chelsea

Our second game against Chelsea
(This is my second game, I am just putting cup games at the end of updates)Was a pretty frustrating. Eden Hazard gave Chelsea the Lead on 18 minutes before centre back Sakho made the score level with a great header on 30 minutes.

Jordan Henderson then gave us the lead ten minutes later with a great strike from 25 yards out. A truly inspiring finish from the hard working midfielder.

However, the three points weren't to be ours as Eto'o then made the scores level for the second time in the game, with and extremely lucky goal. Mignolet went to smash the ball up the field to clear the ball but it ended up deflecting off of Eto'o and lobbed Mignolet. I can't believe their luck, and I am not quite sure how it even happened. It was no ones fault, just extreme luck. We got a point, but we deserved a lot more.

Man of the Match: Mamadou Sakho
Goals: Liverpool: Sakho 30', Henderson 40'
Chelsea: Hazard 18', Eto'o 75'

Premier League Table

Liverpool vs Chelsea

I feel we have exited the Capital One Cup prematurely here. And I'm angered that it was to a former Liverpool player/Traitor. We played poorly all game and it took 47 minutes for Torres to get his first ever goal against Liverpool, and what makes it worse is that it was at the kop end. I'm not to bothered as it means Chelsea, United and other title contenders will have more matches to play meaning more fatigue for them. The lads showed there class where it was more important, and that was in the league.

Man of the Match: Cesar Azpilicueta
Goals: Liverpool: N/A
Chelsea: Torres 47'

Player of the Month

Player of the month goes to Iago Aspas, who has scored a lot of goals so far this season and a lot this season including one against Arsenal and 2 against Villa, when he won the game for Liverpool in the final minutes, he has been superb.

It's quite surprising to see how good Aspas actually is on FM
nice update. Aspas is doing well :)
Aspas has done a hell of a job for you. Sucks about the Capital One Cup, but you can focus on winning the league now :)
Good work getting Aspas to do well!
Unlucky about the Chelsea game but now you can concentrate on the league.
Aspas seems to be doing really well hopefully he can keep up his good form!
