    IF YOU held a vote on the most memorable end to a season that Sergio Aguero moment would win it by a mile. But I’m pretty sure what would be second — the amazing day in 1995 when my West Ham side drew with Manchester United and Blackburn won the title at Anfield. 5Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool and Pep Guardiola's Man City are chasing the Premier League title on the final day of the seasonCredit: Reuters 5Blackburn Rovers won the title at Anfield in 1995 after West Ham held Man Utd to a 1-1 draw at Upton ParkCredit: Rex Everyone thought Liverpool would roll over to make sure Kenny Dalglish won the league with Rovers, while no one gave us a prayer against United. It was my first season at West Ham and after being at the bottom all season, we’d turned it around and got out of trouble a few weeks earlier. So the fact we had nothing obvious left to play for, and Liverpool could stop their big rivals, meant there were loads of  conspiracy theories about. In the...
    THE last time Manchester City pipped Liverpool to the Premier League title on the final day of the season, the margin was a single point — or 11 millimetres. Jurgen Klopp still remembers it keenly — an extraordinary goal-line clearance by John Stones in City’s 2-1 victory at the Etihad which was Liverpool’s ONLY league defeat of that 2018-19 campaign. 4The outstretched boot of John Stones stopped Liverpool from winning the title three years agoCredit: Getty Images - Getty If Sunday’s final day goes to form, with home wins for City and Liverpool leaving Pep Guardiola’s men a point clear again, this time Klopp will locate the fine margin for success and failure inside the wiring of referee Paul Tierney’s brain. While recognising every team has several ‘if only’ moments during the course of a season, Klopp mentioned the Reds’ 2-2 draw at Tottenham on December 19. The fact he had to start with teenager Tyler Morton in central midfield due to a Covid outbreak and the failure of Tierney, or his VAR Chris Kavanagh, to award a stonewall straight red...

The defender told boss Thomas Tuchel that he was not ready to play. 1Andreas Christensen pulled out of Chelsea's FA Cup defeat to Liverpool just hours before kick-offCredit: Getty Christensen had played the whole 90 minutes of the previous match at Leeds.

    AS the Roman Abramovich era draws to a close, Thomas Tuchel complained Chelsea lacked Liverpool’s squad depth. It was an incredible comment from the most recent beneficiary of the billions of Vladimir Putin’s crony — but it wasn’t inaccurate. 1Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel believes the Blues' squad depth is inferior to Liverpool's - but Jurgen Klopp has built an incredible side without spending as much as othersCredit: EPA When Mo Salah and Virgil van Dijk limped out of the FA Cup final, Diogo Jota and Joel Matip hardly weakened the Reds. After the ineffective £97.5million Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku was withdrawn, Tuchel employed Ruben Loftus-Cheek as an emergency  centre-forward. Yes, Tuchel suffered injuries to Kai Havertz and Timo Werner in the build-up. But it is still remarkable Liverpool’s nine-man bench looked stronger than Chelsea’s.

    LIVERPOOL’S last FA Cup final win is synonymous with one man — Steven Gerrard. A flash of right boot and shot of guided missile accuracy from the captain in injury time is the moment everyone remembers from that day in 2006. 4Steven Gerrard scored twice, including this stunning 90th minute equaliser, in what has gone down in history as the 'Gerrard final'Credit: Getty Images - Getty 4Alan Pardew was left touched by a classy gesture from Gerrard after the gameCredit: News Group Newspapers Ltd It saved Liverpool’s skins and proved the catalyst for the comeback which ultimately led to victory over a West Ham side in a final that many consider the best for years.

    FORMER Basel boss Heiko Vogel claimed that "gentle killer" Mohamed Salah failed to impress on his first day on trial in 2012. The 46-year-old offered the Liverpool winger a week-long trial after he netted twice for the Egyptian U-23 side in a friendly against the Swiss side. 1 Mohamed Salah signed for Swiss side Basel in 2012 from Egyptian club El MokawloonCredit: Action Images - Reuters And after observing Salah extensively in video clips before the clash, Vogel has claimed the player was so bad he wondered if he had a twin brother.

    LIVERPOOL, England (AP) — The remaining Manchester United fans inside Anfield were chanting for the club’s owners to sell up when the coaches and players were already back inside analyzing their failings in a 4-0 humiliation by Liverpool. It was a moment, before facing the media, for introspection and self-criticism by interim manager Ralf Rangnick and midfielder Bruno Fernandes at the home of their club’s fiercest rival. “What I tell them in the locker room stays there, obviously,” Rangnick said, before offering a flavor of the damning assessment. “We were just not up to it in the first half. We didn’t win a single second ball. In most of the first ball situations we were just spectators. We were onlookers. “If you play like that against a team like Liverpool, then it’s difficult.” Coming from the temporary coach who is set to move into a consultancy role at the end of the season, it painted a bleak picture of what expected incoming manager Erik ten Hag will find at Old Trafford. Not that United’s malaise will be hard for...

    GLEN JOHNSON stuck the boot into Brendan Rodgers’ motivational techniques during his time at Liverpool. Rodgers used the 'three envelope' trick, a ploy used by Sir Alex Ferguson in an attempt to squeeze more out of the squad when he arrived at Anfield in 2012. 1 Glen Johnson was not buying into Brendan Rodgers' style of motivationCredit: Reuters The technique was shown during the infamous fly-on-the-wall documentary 'Being Liverpool'. Rodgers showed three envelopes to his squad and explaining that he had written down the names of three players he predicted would let Liverpool down that season - then placed the names inside the envelopes. But retired Johnson, who worked with the Leicester boss for three years on Merseyside, revealed the ploy backfired as he simply didn't buy it.

"After that it was a 'trying to get a reaction' sort-of speech. "And then over the course of the season hoping that...
