Christian Benteke and James Milner see Liverpool past Bordeaux

Christian Benteke's stunning strike was enough to send Liverpool to the Europa League's Round of 32 after defeating Bordeaux.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol explains why Liverpool's goalkeeper should have received a warning on the play against Bordeaux.

Liverpool progressed to the knockout stage of the Europa League with a far from convincing performance against energetic yet limited opponents.

During a first half in which the home side made virtually all the running, Simon Mignolet helped put the Reds a goal down after he was punished for holding the ball for over 20 seconds. James Milner levelled with a penalty shortly afterwards before a superb Christian Benteke strike eventually won the game.

Anfield certainly isn't bringing the best out of...

Brazilian players like Coutinho no longer Premier League novelty act

Philippe Coutinho and Firmino both scored in Liverpool's big 4-1 win at Manchester City on Nov. 21.

Isaias Marques Soares isn't a name that will ring many bells among football fans. Apart from being the first Brazilian to play in the Premier League -- and presumably helping to usher in the now-mandatory use of their full names at the start of football articles -- his time at Coventry was unremarkable.

Since Isaias' low-key arrival at Coventry City in 1995, the English top flight has been a port of call for more than 60 of his countrymen, but those 20 years are yet to witness the arrival of an...

Daniel Sturridge and Christian Benteke can boost Liverpool's home form

Daniel Sturridge, left, and Christian Benteke, right, have started just once together for Liverpool.

Liverpool welcome Bordeaux to Anfield for Thursday night's Europa League clash with two clear objectives in mind.

First and foremost, the hosts will want to secure qualification to the knockout stages of the competition by winning the game but, secondly, they will also be looking to do it in convincing fashion to start the process of getting their home form back to where it needs to be.

For too long now Liverpool have struggled on home turf, but with confidence soaring following Saturday's stunning...

Liverpool must avoid getting carried away with Manchester City result

ESPN FC's Gab Marcotti delves into Liverpool's dominating performance against Manchester City.

Will the real Liverpool please stand up? Saturday's excellent 4-1 win at Manchester City has a lot of fans suddenly aiming for the stars again. What a difference from the woes of the 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace on Nov. 8.

Monday's blog by David Usher was a case in point. Passionate and well argued, as always, it raised anxious eyebrows among the pessimistic branch of Liverpool's fan base.

An article on the Internet cannot affect events, yet some believe in football voodoo, where optimism triggers...

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp learns Scouse with the help of a friend

Having already seen off the likes of Chelsea and Man City in recent weeks, you could argue that Jurgen Klopp doesn't really warrant much more help when it comes to settling into his new life at Anfield.

However, aware that the local Scouse accent and dialect can be a bit of a challenge to foreign ears, the club sent one of their youngest assistants, 9-year-old fan Isaac, to help Klopp master the basics.

Roberto Firmino starred in Jurgen Klopp's pressing game at Man City

Liverpool stunned Manchester City as Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino powered Liverpool to a 4-1 win.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says Coutinho and Firmino's absence from international duty was a big help to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp once described counter-pressing as the best playmaker there is in football, and that principle proved its credibility in Liverpool's 4-1 drubbing of Manchester City at the Etihad on Saturday. The Reds pressed from the off and were 3-0 up after 33 minutes that, for City's part, must go down as one of the most error-strewn spells of play in the Premier League this season. If anything, the hosts were lucky to only be 3-1 down at half-time, having shown a bewildering lack of concentration.
