What I Told Liverpool Players after 1-0 Defeat to Chelsea – Klopp

  Jurgen Klopp has said that he told Liverpool players that he (the manager) is to be blamed for their lacklustre defeat to Chelsea in the Premier League on Thursday. Liverpool only had one shot on target throughout the duration and it was not registered until the 85th minute, being Firminho’s header. The Reds have now gone more than 10 hours without a goal at Anfield and they have taken just one point from the last 21 on offer at home since Christmas, scoring just two goals, one of which was a penalty. “Intense game, tight game, one decisive moment decided the game with the quality of Mason,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “Our situations we didn’t use. That is pretty much the explanation for the result. “I try to be as honest as possible, I told the boys what I saw ton...

Premier League to Introduce Three New Rules next Season

The Premier League is set to implement new rules next season, after the International Football Association Board (IFAB) made changes to the use of pitch-side monitors and also offered an explanation of which part of the arm can be penalised as handball. Football’s law-making body has addressed a number of the controversial aspects of officiating the game, such as the use of the video assistant referee (VAR) and handball and penalty kick decisions. Referees are likely to spend much more time looking at pitch-side monitors next season as a result. Before now, officials in England depend on VAR officials to make decisions. “Where a reviewable incident is subjective, the expectation is that the referee will undertake an ‘on-field review’,” the IF...

China Owes The World An Explanation; How Come They Have The Best Recovery Rate From COVID-19?

Let us take a quick look at the stats of the number of COVID-19 cases across the world, since the outbreak of this deadly pandemic. The USA has 123,000 cases with 3,000 recoveries which stands at 2%. Italy has 92,000 cases with 12,000 recoveries which stands at 13%. Spain’s 16%, Germany’s 14% and the UK 0.7% recovery rate is another point to ponder about at this point. But have you noticed that China had 81,000 cases and 75,000 recoveries which pegs her recovery rate at a staggering 92.5%.
