Brendan Rodgers Hasn’t Asked Steven Gerrard to Adjust His Game, Manager Says LFC Captain Gives Balance to Team

Liverpool sneaks past Southampton

Liverpool got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Southampton but it came at a price as Luis Suarez picked up a booking which will result in a suspension.

(Video) Aaron Lennon earns rare own goal assist off Gareth Bale’s face

See! Luis Suarez isn’t the only one who can score goals for Liverpool… at least not when Aaron Lennon and Gareth Bale are left to dispatch a loose ball in front of their own goal anyway.

Wimbledon past and present to meet in FA Cup

When AFC Wimbledon takes the field to face MK Dons on Sunday in the FA Cup, the teams will be playing for identity nearly as much as a spot in the third round.
