Liverpool has really hit their goalscoring stride over the past couple of games, so we’ve picked out the Reds’ finest strikes of the season so far. Football supporters from around the world can buy Premier League Tickets online to enjoy its brilliant actions.
Liverpool has scored a plethora of incredible goals already this season, and with eight excellent strikes having found the back of the opponent’s net in the last two matches, it seems the Reds are in a real moment of attacking form and fluency.
With the Reds netting for fun at the moment, there is no better time to look back at some of our favorite goals of the season so far, with plenty of top-class options to pick from.
From the own-goal by Grant Hanley that kicked off the Reds’ goal-scoring this season to Salah’s left-footed finish to complete the scoring against Bournemouth on Saturday, Liverpool has found the back of the net a total of 60 times already in all competitions.
Here, Matt Addison and Joel Rabinowitz pick out and discuss the very best strikes so far.
The obvious place to start is with Fabiano’s strike against Manchester City at Anfield. You could make the argument that it is the most important moment of the season so far, given the way the rest of that game went, and how City have crumbled since. As soon as the ball left his right foot, Ederson stood no chance, and the Reds have not looked back.
That’s the one that immediately sticks out, I think. The way he arrowed it perfectly straight was just so satisfying to watch, and there’s also the surprise element because it was only his second-ever goal for Liverpool, and you don’t really tend to associate Fabinho with that kind of hit.
I’d also pick out Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s second goal against Genk away, which is a piece of outrageous technical skill. To even attempt it like he did, with the outside of the boot, let alone execute it perfectly, was incredible. And goals that crash in off the underside of the crossbar are always glorious.
That Chamberlain strike was certainly a memorable one. Purely in terms of technique, there is a strong argument for that being slightly better than Fabiano’s, but you also have to consider the game and the context.
Chamberlain’s was incredible, but it wasn’t against Manchester City, and it also made it 0-2 on the night, rather than opening the scoring. Genk is a team that Liverpool was expected to beat comfortably as well.
I think that’s fair, but Chamberlain’s one was definitely harder to score I’d say. In terms of team goals, there’s definitely a big shout for Andy Robertson against Salzburg, which capped off a brilliant passing sequence and ended up with one full-back assisting the other.
Pep Lijnders described it as the ‘dream goal’, and you could see exactly why. It’s got to be up there alongside Emre Can against Hoffenheim among the best team goals scored under Klopp.
MA: Team goals and sweeping moves are something that Liverpool have been producing with regularity for a while now, and they are always a pleasure to watch. Moving forward with the ball in possession, like with that Robertson goal in the Champions League, is pretty much the first thing I think about when considering what a typical Liverpool performance involves under Klopp.
There have been a few sweeping moves throughout the season Sadio Mane’s in the derby is one that springs to mind as being a brilliant one too.
JR: Speaking of the derby, all five goals in that game were of such high quality. But there’s a real beauty in the simplicity of Divock Origi’s second, with Dejan Lovren supplying that magnificent raking pass, and Origi’s perfect touch to bring it down and keep his composure to lob it over Jordan Pickford.
I’d also throw in Mohamed Salah’s second goal against Arsenal where he picks the ball up on the halfway line and just makes an absolute mockery of David Luiz. That’s vintage Salah at his absolute best.
On Salah, his header against Manchester City needs to be mentioned. From Trent’s superb left-footed switch to Robertson, and then Scot’s inch-perfect cross into the area, to Salah’s perfectly-timed header, everything about it was absolutely spot on. The Egyptians made it look so simple but with the speed, the ball was traveling at and a top-class goalkeeper to beat, he had to get it exactly right.
I’ve also got to give a shout out to Mane’s opener against Southampton. It was like one of Philippe Coutinho’s trademark strikes, as he linked inside and then curled an unstoppable shot into the far corner, which also came at a key moment in the match.
I think if most teams scored that Mane goal, it would be up there among their goals of the season, but Liverpool has just scored so many of such a high standard that that one probably won’t even make the top five come May.
The last one I’d pick out is Trent’s strike against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, which was just a perfectly executed free-kick routine and really reminded you of the way Steven Gerrard used to score from there so frequently. But yeah, we could go on all day I’m sure…and there’ll no doubt be plenty more to salivate over in the weeks and months ahead.
