Liverpool must not underestimate resurgent Newcastle

Mario Balotelli scored for the first time in eight matches against Swansea in the Capital One Cup, but is that enough to get him firing again?

Liverpool travel to the north-east on Saturday for a lunchtime fixture that all of a sudden looks an awful lot tougher than it did a week ago. Newcastle United were in the bottom three and facing a tough trip to face Tottenham at White Hart Lane on Sunday. They fell behind early, which will have surprised nobody, but came back to win 2-1, which will have surprised everybody, perhaps even themselves.

Three days later they followed it up with an even bigger upset, dumping holders Manchester City out...

Player ratings: Dejan Lovren leads mediocre Liverpool to cup win

Liverpool celebrate Dejan Lovren's late winner against Swansea on Tuesday.

Late drama at Anfield saw the Reds achieve victory against an organised Swansea City side that, just 10 minutes before the end, couldn't have possibly dreamt the night would finish so badly for them. They had looked fairly safe and secure as the game crept into the latter stages.

With continuous questioning of his transfer business, Brendan Rodgers can afford to pat himself on the back as Mario Balotelli and Dejan Lovren scored the vital goals. It had been a patient -- sometimes too patient...

Balotelli comes to Liverpool's rescue in Capital One Cup comeback

Dejan Lovren's late winner secured a quarterfinal place for Liverpool.

LIVERPOOL, England -- A trio of observations from Liverpool's 2-1 win vs. Swansea in the Capital One Cup fourth round.

1. Balotelli finally delivers

When Mario Balotelli jogged onto the Anfield pitch in the 79th minute, Liverpool were going out of the Capital One Cup and were exiting without a whimper. Indeed, for the second time in three seasons, Brendan Rodgers faced the prospect of elimination by former club Swansea.

Yet one of the benefits of having an unpredictable character is that his impulsive,...

Napoli interested as Liverpool consider cutting their losses on Mario Balotelli

ESPN FC's Sid Lowe believes Mario Balotelli may be overrated, but Craig Burley stands firm with Liverpool's decision to purchase the Italian striker.

World-class rumour alert, the kind that makes the Transfer Talk world go round. Away we go ...

Balotelli on the move already?

There is no doubt that Mario Balotelli has made a slow start to his Anfield career, but the news filtering through from Metro today that Liverpool are prepared to sell the mercurial Italy international in January still comes as a shock!

After spending 16 million pounds just three months ago to land the 24-year old, it's been suggested that the Reds could be prepared to cut...

Fans still back Balotelli despite his barren run for Liverpool

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers defended Mario Balotelli's performance following the Reds goalless draw against Hull City.

Almost exactly two years ago, Liverpool faced Swansea City in a League Cup tie at Anfield. The Reds went into the game struggling for form in the Premier League and with new boss Brendan Rodgers trying to implement a new way of playing while juggling the extra demands of European football.

Liverpool entertain Swansea again this week in eerily similar circumstances: plagued by indifferent league results and with Rodgers bemoaning a lack of time to work with his players on the training pitch due to...

Player ratings: Liverpool's frustrating offensive woes continue vs. Hull

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers defended Mario Balotelli's performance following the Reds goalless draw against Hull City.

The long-awaited clean sheet proved something of an anticlimax to the Reds after a frustrating rear-guard action by Hull City also kept the home side's sporadic attacking efforts at bay.

The whole team was initially hampered by a selection that seemed to be the original choice for the visit of the European champions, not Steve Bruce's latest bunch of niggardly grafters. Brendan Rodgers is starting to look like the financially restricted novice of 2012 rather than the title-chasing attacking giant...
