Here i will explain how to play against certain ennemy champs. I think theres no counter to Irelia top, i never lose my lane 1v1.
AA = Autoattack
When i say E him, you should remember that you have to be lower % HP than your enenmy to stun him, otherwise you only slow him.
Basic Combo(In Lane): Q to a low hp MInion next to your ennemy, then stun or slow the ennemy, activate your W, and eventually your R, AA him until he runs away or is dead. If he runs away follow up With Q and all the AA you can still hit. Do Not Forget to move inbetween your AAs
Basic Trade : E - AA - AA
Want to outtrade him heavily? : E-W-R-AA-AA-Q
Malphite is a very strong top lane pick, but dont be afraid of him, you can still beat him, watch this replay, even though i lost the game, i won my top lane. http://www.leaguereplays.com/replays/match/2582399/
So you wanna start
vs this guy. Ennemy Junglers love to get their Malphite fed, cause he will be unstoppable then, so care for ganks. At the beginning Malphite will harass you with his Q but it wont do that damage at that time, you should be ok farming. Remember to attack him if he goes for a creep for free damage. When he lands your E on you, you shouldnt fight, expect you are much stronger than him and you think you can still beat him. Sometimes Malphites go for E to kill creeps, that the moment where you should engage. You either run to him and E, or you Q a low hp minion next to Malphite and stun him, autoattack, then Q afterwards if he runs away and land a last autoattack. Thats how you can beat him, but beware when he gets lvl 6, its impossible to dodge without Flash or a good timed Bladesurge. IF you get hit and their red buff jungler comes you will die.
Watch this replay to watch some nice play against Malphite. The game was a Defeat but i still outplayed their Malphite.
Good Cho Players can be very annoying, especially if they land all their Knock Ups on you, here you also start
. Dont let him free farm, always try to autoattack him when he goes for a creep/creeps. If you are like lvl 5 you can go even more agressive, try to have same % Health as him or lower, E - W -AA -AA He will run away or Q you, if it lands np, you still have your Q. These Combos can take about 40-60% of their health even at lvl 5.
Darius, Darius, Darius in low ELO everyone fears him, if he is fed his ultimate chunks you and your team. A lot of players say Darius counters Irelia or does better against her, what i dont understand at all. Start with
, so you can dodge his Pulls and Qs better.
When he hits 6 you shouldnt fight him 1v1, wait until you hit 7/8 because at 6 you are able to kill him , but he is able to kill you too. Rush Ninja Tabi and maybe a Dorans Blade if you think you need some HP. If he uses his Q on creeps punish him for it! Do the usual combo : Q to a low hp minion next to him - E - W -AA until he runs away -Q + AA if he is low then Flash+Autoattack +ignite and if you have ULT you should activate it as soon as you stunned him.
Difficulty ?(Based on ennemy skill)
Didnt play vs a lot of Fioras, you have to care that she doesnt block your autoattack. If you can suceed with that you should be able to beat her later.
Difficulty 5/10(Based on ennemy skill)
Only 2 kind of Garen players exist : Very good ones , and very bad ones.
If you meet a bad one, you should be able to stomp him.
IF you meet a very good one, you wont beat him early game, but after you got like Ninja Tabi + Dorans Shield + Brutalizer you can 1v1 him and win trades and eventually kill him.
This is rarely seen , but if he goes top he usually is a good Jarvan. All i can say is to not get hit by his Knock up Combo, and dont let his Passive trigger on you too often, cause like that you will lose the lane. His Q kinda hurts after a certain level , but Ninja Tabi helps alot. If you loose feel free to go
After you get a bit of AD (Brutalizer,Long Sword) you can outtrade him , but you should manage to dodge his Q that he tries to send through the minions to hit you. If you do that, engage on him.
You will most likely lose to a good played Jax, but they seem to be rare. When he use his E on you and still is far away , he has to jump on you. When he jumps on you , you should immediately jump to a low HP creep or just to a creep to get away. He will most likely come to you even after you jumped away. If you could reset your Q you should fight him, but if you didnt you should still fight him :D just go the usual again : E-R-W-AA until he runs away, then Q and give him more autoattacks. http://www.leaguereplays.com/replays/match/2582496/ This should give you some ideas about playing vs Jax, my ennemy laner wasnt that experienced. But it should still give you an idea. I am looking forward to play another game vs Jax in Ranked to share it with you guys!
Easy easy lane if you play it right. When you engage on him he will knock you away with his E in Hammer Stance, but thats why you want to have your Q up when you engage. Try to not get Poked by his E+Q cause the Acceleration Gate makes his Q very very painful. Engaging on him : Basic Combo
Difficulty , cant judge, depends on ennemy lee sin.
Lee sins can really outplay you hardly. You wont die from him but you wont be able to kill him if hes good. If he max W first he has infinite sustain and a heavy armor boost so you cant burst him down. You can still kill him if his CDs are on. If he max Q it should be easy to dodge it and even if he hits it you can still outtrade him expect he goes for Q-Q-W to his minion. When you are crippled you should run away or find a low HP ennemy Minion to Q on and then engage him with the Basic Combo.
Difficulty , 3.5/10
Easy one, she will try to autoattack harass you all day, but at level 3 you can outtrade and get her off lane already. Care to not get harassed too much from 1-3. If i realize that their Nidalee is a bad kiter, i run to him stun him, activate my W and Autoattack until she runs away. Then i Q her and give her another AA. With this combo you could also get FB. If she is a good Kiter just outplay her and abuse her low HP caster minions with your Q- Basic combo engage.
Some people fear Nida at lvl 6, but as Irelia you dont have to. If you realize that she is going to W on you and do her E-Q, just Q to a low HP minion ( if there is one) behind her and E her and start auto-attacking such trades cant be won by Nidalee.
Difficulty , 4.2/10
Olaf, the known counter to Irelia. All i say to this is : BULLSHIT, i get a smile on my face if i see ennemy picking Olaf when i play Irelia.Cant find any good replays now, but i will try to find an ennemy olaf, and share the clip with you guys. Dont eat his axes early game, if he comes to E you just stun him and autoattack him. If he throws his Axe and fails and goes for picking up do your Basic Trade or Basic Engage. You shouldnt have problems against , just dont get ganked! But sometimes you can still win vs Olaf if he gets FB, this doesnt depend on how good he is, only on how you go on it.
Difficulty , 5/10
Rengar jungle is op , and some players seem to have issues vs him at top too, but i dont fear renger cause you out play them as Irelia. His damage is insane at top lane, but after he bursted you for a bit it is your time to burst twice as hard back.Your Basic Combo wrecks him. Care for ennemy Jungler ganks as always.
http://www.leaguereplays.com/replays/match/2584861/ did some mistakes here, like killing rengar but going back to tower aggro and dieing cause creeps blocked me haha. But in this replay you can see how i outfarmed him and won all 1v1 trades, and towerdiving him.
Renekton is harder cause his ad burst hurts, you should play smart and careful here. If he gets first Blood it will be devastating for you. If he Q minions use your Basic Combo or Basic Trade, as soon as you get a little bit ahead of him (LEvel, Item) you beat him easily .

So Singed is a really easy ennemy for Irelia. If he goes like Ninja Tabi+Dorans+Frozen Heart it will be hard to kill him, but he shouldnt be able to go that path, cause you will zone and punish him for every Creep he tries to hit. If he Flings you dont run away, fight him with your Basic Trade!
Dont let him get between your towers, if he does just ask your jungler or kill him by yourself.
It should be easy stomping him, just try to practise Irelia a bit.
