Liverpool at Anfield no match for West Ham but hoodoo can't last forever

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop says Liverpool have been fortunate with some key decisions going in their favour so far.

Liverpool's 2015-16 fixture list has to be the weirdest they've ever been given -- it alternates between very difficult away games and easy home matches, with West Ham at Anfield next up this Saturday.

Supporters are bouncing between gratitude for any sign of improvement one week while fully expecting victory the next. Of course whenever you speak of expecting your team to win a match a number of other problems present themselves, but in the case of West Ham at home it's hard to speak in any other...

Liverpool's best and worst of recent transfer spending

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop responds to James Milner's comments that Liverpool "have closed the gap on the teams that finished in the top four positions in the Premier League."

Earlier this week my colleague Steven Kelly wrote an excellent article on Liverpool's 2014 transfer window. It is regarded by many as one of the worst in the club's history, yet there is still the opportunity for some of those players to alter people's perception of the business conducted by the Reds a year ago.

Emre Can, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Adam Lallana and Divock Origi may yet prove it wasn't a complete write-off. In truth they won't have to do a great deal to avoid the tag of "worst...

Balotelli's Milan contract: No clubbing, no smoking, no crazy haircuts

No more haircuts like this for Mario Balotelli.

If the good folks at Gazzetta della Sport are to be believed, Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli is going to have his work cut out trying to stick to the rules of his new loan contract at AC Milan.

Balotelli, who has a lengthy rap sheet of misdemeanors -- including smoking regularly, having fireworks in his bathroom, posting material found to be 'racist and anti-Semitic' on social media, partying before games, as well as multiple training ground issues -- will be forced to adhere to a...

Liverpool's 'Class of 2014' proving to be an expensive mistake

ESPN FC's Shaka Hislop responds to James Milner's comments that Liverpool "have closed the gap on the teams that finished in the top four positions in the Premier League."
ESPN FC's Alejandro Moreno shares his thoughts on the number of opportunities and playing time Mario Balotelli was afforded at Liverpool.
ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti breaks down the news that Mario Balotelli has passed a medical for a loan move to AC Milan.
Mario Balotelli has rejoined Milan on loan from Liverpool after a less than succesful spell at Anfield

Sounding off about Liverpool after three games of a season has inherent risks. It doesn't do to get carried away because that may anger the football gods and ensure the team slides back into mediocrity.

It's fair to say though that fans in general have liked what they've seen so far. Scarred by last summer's dismal transfer wastage -- estimated to be £120 million -- they were setting the bar lower for this latest crop of talent and therefore have been initially surprised as a result.

Liverpool benefit from Brendan Rodgers' increased pragmatism

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers felt his side could have gained more from their match against Arsenal if it were not for Petr Cech's heroics in net.
Liverpool have maintained their unbeaten start to the season after settling for a goalless draw with Arsenal, in a game littered with chances.

Ahead of Monday's game at Arsenal, the two clean sheets with which Liverpool opened the season were encouraging, but there seemed little point in reading too much into them.

Traditionally one of the most difficult fixtures on the Merseysiders' calendar, facing Arsenal on their own patch was going to be the sternest test to date for new-look Liverpool. The promising start, which saw wins at Stoke and vs. Bournemouth, could easily be halted by defeat, so supporters had been reserving judgment until...

Arsenal overload left side as Liverpool's Benteke bullies Gunners

The ESPN FC crew discuss Arsenal's match against Liverpool and comment that Arsenal did not make the best of their chances.

Brendan Rodgers could take the most positives from Monday night's 0-0 draw at the Emirates Stadium, in which his fast-paced Liverpool side forced heroics from Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech.

Pressing high in a 4-3-3 formation, the visitors forced several errors from a makeshift Arsenal defence of Calum Chambers and Gabriel, and the presence of Christian Benteke gave the Reds a new sense of variety. By half-time, Philippe Coutinho had struck the woodwork twice, while his Belgian teammate had been denied...
