How The Top Flight Looked The Last Time Liverpool Won The League Nearly 30 Years Ago

Challenging for the lead in the Premier League and home to the best defense in the top flight so far this season, Liverpool fans are once again dreaming of lifting the league trophy. The last Liverpool title in 1989-90 ended two decades of dominance over the English league by Liverpool. 

In the nearly 30 years since, the Merseyside club has finished second four times and as low as eighth three times. Now four years into the Jurgen Klopp project, and on the back of the owners funneling in record sums into the team, Liverpool is poised to challenge once again.

Aleksandar Mitrovic And David De Gea Were Ready To Get Sent Off Saturday

Manchester United’s trip to Fulham on Saturday morning seemed like a routine one, and that’s what it turned out to be. Goals from Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial saw Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s side reach the top four for the first time since August with a run of 11 games unbeaten. There was one moment in the match that was certainly noteworthy: David de Gea vs Mitrovic.

Saints Fans Ejected From Cardiff City Match For Mocking Emiliano Sala

Cardiff City defeated Southampton 2-1 on Saturday, the club’s second straight victory after grabbing just five wins in its first 24 matches. The Bluebirds are playing inspired football following the tragic death of Emiliano Sala, the club’s record signing who died in a plane crash in January and whose body wasn’t found and identified until a couple days ago. 

Cardiff jumped up to 15th place with the back-to-back wins, a feel-good story coming out of devastating heartbreak

Serie A Clubs Are Ahead Of Other European Clubs In One Area

Serie A doesn’t get the same attention that it used to anymore, especially when big clubs like Inter, AC Milan and Roma have been losing the Serie A title to Juventus year after year. On top of that Juventus is the only Italian club regularly advancing to the later stages of the Champions League every year. 

As a result, TV coverage of Serie A has shifted to other countries. Because of the TV deals with the Premier League, LaLiga and Bundesliga, a lot of interesting information can slip through the cracks.

Troy Deeney Says Ben Foster Is The Footballer We All Want To Be

Ben Foster is the guy we all want to be.

At least, according to his teammate Troy Deeney.

Ben Foster, Watford’s No. 1 goalkeeper (not to be confused with the American actor of the same name), is fourth in the Premier League in saves with 78, the highest of any Englishman. He’s worked his way through the ranks, having signed by Sir Alex Ferguson from Stoke City in 2005 at the age of 22, only to struggle for top-flight match time. 

Miguel Almirón Credits MLS For Development And Aims For Monday Debut With Newcastle

Following his $26 million transfer from Atlanta United to Newcastle United, expectations are high for Miguel Almirón on Tyneside. A large part of that is because St James’ Park has been desperate for an inspirational attacker to idolize, but also because the club sits only two points above the drop zone — a predicament that’s thanks in large part due to a haul of only 21 goals in 25 games (the second-worst total in the division).

Meet The 5 Foot 4 Inch Bournemouth Winger With Stats Like Messi And Hazard

There’s always more to like about AFC Bournemouth: the 11,329-capacity Dean Court; cherubic 10-year-old boy whiz manager Eddie Howe; the fact that the club was in the fourth division as recently as 2010 but now sits comfortably in 10th during its fourth consecutive season in the Premier League (following on finishes of 16th, 9th and 12th). 

Aymeric Laporte Brought City To The Top Of The League And Nearly Killed Himself In The Process

Just like David Silva’s hair transplant, Manchester City is growing and on top and oh god this metaphor. But City returned to the summit of the Premier League with the sort of balls to the wall 2-0 win that Liverpool is suddenly incapable of.

Liverpool fans — taking a break from crucifying Naby Keita for the 970 minutes of PL football he’s played — immediately turned their attention to crucifying Everton fans for potentially wanting to lose to City today to thwart their rival’s title aspirations.  

Manuel Pellegrini Calls Out Jurgen Klopp After Missed Offside Calls

It’s fair to say that Liverpool did not enjoy Monday night's match against West Ham.

Going 1-0 up after 22 minutes through Sadio Mané, Liverpool struggled to clinch an important victory in the Premier League title race. Michail Antonio scored just six minutes later, and Liverpool could not respond.

West Ham on the other hand, should be happy the performance against Liverpool was a lot better than in recent matches and against the league leaders no less. West Ham’s manager, Manuel Pellegrini, was less than impressed with Liverpool’s goal and with Jurgen Klopp.
