Liverpool Could be Crowned Premier League Champions in March

Liverpool came from behind to beat West Ham 3-2 on Monday night. Gini Wijnaldum opened scoring in the 9th minute at Anfield, before Issa Diop headed in for 1-1.

The win saw the Reds open a 22-point gap between themselves and second-placed Manchester City. Jurgen Klopp’s men would be confirmed champions, if they win their next four fixtures against Watford (A), Bournemouth (H), Everton (A) and Crystal Palace (A).

Liverpool First Team Will Miss Shrewsbury FA Cup Replay

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that he will send an under-23 team to play the FA Cup fourth round replay against Shrewsbury Town. "Our situation is the following. We've known for a couple of weeks, in fact we've known longer, that it would be like this," he told BBC Sport. “In April 2019 we got a letter from the Premier League, I think, where they asked us to respect the winter break and not to organise international friendlies or competitive games. We respect that. “So I said to the boys already two weeks ago that we will have a winter break which means we will not be there. It will be the kids who play that game. “You cannot deal with us like nobody cares about it. I know that it's not very popular but that's the way I see it. “The Premier League asked us...

Firmino Punishes Holgate Two Years Later For Pushing Him

Firmino punishes Holgate two years later for pushing him into boardings with most savage skill of the season, remember in January 2018 when Mason Holgate tried to put Roberto Firmino into the advertising hoardings in FA Cup victory at Anfield? The Everton defender somehow didn’t get sent off for it – but it seems Bobby never forgot! Tonight, when he came on, the game was already won at 4-2, but Firmino put the polish on it by destroying the defender with a sublime piece of skill – before providing Gini Wijnaldum the assist to make it 5-2. Sometimes, revenge is best served cold! Liverpool are now 29 points ahead of Everton after 14 games played. We’d be surprised if Marco Silva stayed in a job, but Jurgen Klopp has his eyes firmly set on the Premier League title. We’re...

Liverpool have qualified for the Champions League final, following an incredible 4-0 win over Barcelona on Tuesday night. The Reds came into the second leg of their semi-final trailing 3-0 from the game at the Nou Camp. However, an early goal from Divock Origi inspired Jurgen Klopp’s team into belief, as they went into the break one goal up. Gini Wijnaldum, on as a substitute for Andrew Robertson, netted a quick-fire double in the second half, to level the tie on aggregate. Liverpool booked their place in the final, after Origi pounced on a smart corner-kick from Trent Alexander-Arnold, to make it 4-0 and sent Barca out. They will now face Ajax or Tottenham for the trophy.

Jurgen Klopp Hails Liverpool After West Ham Demolition

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp praised his players after they put West Ham to the sword on Saturday, winning 4-1 at the London Stadium to heap the pressure on Slaven Bilic. Mohamed Salah put Liverpool ahead and Joel Matip doubled the visitors’ lead before half-time. Manuel Lanzini reduced the deficit, but woeful West Ham capitulated and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain netted Liverpool’s third before Salah bagged his 12th goal of the season to seal the rout. “The result, it feels good,” said Klopp. “We changed our approach, it was a counter-attacking line-up to use our speed from a deep situation. “It was brilliant play for the first goal. “Our counter-attacking was pretty perfect, we had some wonderful play. Roberto Firmino, I’m not sure I’ve ever seen a player play a third game in ...

Mohamed Salah May Already Have Lost His New Job As Liverpool Penalty Taker

Ultimately Salah’s first half miss from the spot - Jonas Lossl easily saving an effort that was much too central - did not prove too costly after second half goals from Daniel Sturridge, Roberto Firmino and Gini Wijnaldum secured a much-needed three points. Salah became Liverpool’s third penalty taker of the last six months, winning the role after standing up to huge pressure to fire Egypt to World Cup qualification three weeks ago after 95 minutes of their match against Congo. That convinced Klopp he had the mentality for the job, after Roberto Firmino missed against Sevilla and with last year’s go-to man James Milner often missing out on the starting line-up. Both Milner and Firmino were on the pitch yesterday - the Brazilian indeed winning the spot-kick after Tommy Smith grabbed his ...
