The entire Liverpool squad knelt in Anfield's centre circle ahead of a training session on Monday in a powerful show of support for the Black Lives Matter movement.

Following the death of George Floyd in the United States, and the subsequent global reaction, the Reds players wanted to show solidarity.

It was a moment initiated by the playing squad, who then subsequently took to their own individual social media accounts to post the image with the caption: “Unity is strength. #BlackLivesMatter”.

Gallery: Mane and Keita strike in training workout at Anfield

LiverpoolFC.TV - 1 hour 44 min ago

The Liverpool squad took part in a training routine at Anfield on Monday as preparations continued ahead of the Premier League's provisional restart date later this month.

A session consisting of short 11v11 match scenarios took place, split into several segments.

Sadio Mane and Naby Keita were both on target in a keenly contested workout in the sunshine, overseen by Jürgen Klopp and his backroom staff.

Georginio Wijnaldum was present but did not take part as a purely precautionary measure, with the club’s medical team electing to take no risks with any minor knocks.

Assistant manager Pepijn Lijnders told Liverpoolfc.com: “It was an unbelievable feeling to be back at this iconic stadium.

“It’s our home. Anfield is basically the second-strongest connection we have, after our own homes. We had a training week full of intense sessions and to finish it off with Anfield was just great.

“We wanted to give the players the feeling of playing and competing without a crowd. We are just going step by step back to our way of playing, knowing that we have to work hard in training and be really committed to our principles to reach the same level that we had.

“Today was an important step in that direction; firstly getting familiar with the process around the games and secondly giving our squad playing time and competition very close to the environment that we will have in the future.”

LFC Foundation celebrates its volunteers during UK Volunteers' Week 2020

LiverpoolFC.TV - 6 hours 28 min ago

LFC Foundation will be showcasing the work of its valued volunteers this week in celebration of national Volunteers' Week 2020.

The Reds’ official charity currently has more than 450 registered volunteers, who generously lend their time throughout the year to assist with LFC Foundation programmes and initiatives, as well as more recently the club’s ‘Unity is Strength’ community response work.

Volunteers’ Week, which runs from June 1-7, is an annual celebration of the contribution that millions of people make across the UK through volunteering.

This week, LFC Foundation will focus on a different theme each day to feature the fantastic work of its volunteers and highlight the many benefits that volunteering brings.

To begin the week, Monday will be dedicated to ‘Listening and Support’, which will be followed by ‘Health and Wellbeing’ on Tuesday, ‘Fundraising’ on Wednesday, ‘COVID-19 response and informal community civic action’ on Thursday, ‘Nature and the Outdoors’ on Friday, ‘Art and Culture’ on Saturday and ‘Sport and Leisure’ to bring the week to a close on Sunday.

Some of the activity will include: case studies of LFC Foundation volunteers across a variety of programmes; a presentation about volunteering from LFC Foundation’s #iwill participants; videos from LFC Foundation’s Youth Panel and Open Goals programme; and much more.

Matt Parish, LFC Foundation director, said: “We are lucky to have an amazing team of active volunteers who kindly dedicate their time and skills to help engage children, young people and families across the Liverpool City Region.

“Not only do they help us serve our local communities by building personal connections and raise aspirations, but they also grow as individuals too by gaining confidence and new skills.

“Even during the difficult times that we are currently living in, our volunteers have stepped up and supported our COVID-19 community response work by supporting the North Liverpool Foodbank hub in Anfield.

“We have an ongoing partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, which creates volunteering opportunities for students who wish to join our team. The students bring so much and are very committed, which makes the partnership a success.

“On behalf of everyone at the LFC Foundation, I would like to sincerely thank all of our dedicated volunteers for their outstanding work.”

Robertson: Van Dijk and Klopp best in the world

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - 10 hours 28 min ago
Robertson on Klopp: "That's why we're so successful just now, it's down to him"

Last Updated: 01/06/20 8:47am

8:51 Patrick Davison quizzes Liverpool’s Andy Robertson about things people from the world of football have said about him. Patrick Davison quizzes Liverpool’s Andy Robertson about things people from the world of football have said about him.

Liverpool's Andrew Robertson insists Virgil van Dijk is the best defender and Jurgen Klopp the best manager in the world at present.

Robertson has been dominant for Liverpool alongside Dutchman Van Dijk in a Reds defence that sits top of the Premier League by 25 points ahead of football's return in mid-June.

Speaking on The Football Show, Robertson insists the £75m price has been well worth it, and that the pair have a good bond on and off the pitch.

"Virg is the best defender in the world, and I love him being on the left-hand side with me," said Robertson. "We have a good partnership on and off the pitch, and we help each other out. On the pitch especially.

Van Dijk has been instrumental in leading Liverpool 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League Van Dijk has been instrumental in leading Liverpool 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League Van Dijk has been instrumental in leading Liverpool 25 points clear at the top of the Premier League

"The big guy is absolutely class in everything he does. He just carries himself so well on and off the pitch, and is somebody who a lot of people look up to, and I'm one of them. He's a fantastic leader, a fantastic guy. I love playing with him, having him in the back line, and since he signed, he's brought us forward.

"I loved him at Celtic as well, and I was delighted when we signed him, and it showed that the money spent was worth it."

'Klopp a father figure'

Robertson also said Klopp is the father figure at Anfield, and that the quality of team bond is the reason why they have been so successful in recent years.

Could he be more confident? Maybe yes but when he's with us, he has that confidence, that belief. What he's not is the type of character who wakes up, looks in the mirror and says, 'Look at me, I'm Andrew Robertson...' He doesn't live like that. There's no arrogance to him, none at all. He's just a well-educated, well brought-up boy and he comes from Scotland, all of which is good enough for me.

Klopp on Robertson

Reacting to a quote from Klopp on Robertson from 2019, the Scot was taken aback by the high praise.

"I don't think I've heard this quote, but it's one that gets me. For a manager, who I think is the best in the world at the minute, for him to say that about me is really nice. That's what I try to be.

"He's probably right, could I have more confidence in myself and my ability? Yes, I could. It's something I'm maybe trying to work on.

4:58 Liverpool's PL wins in November and December included victory in the Merseyside Derby and the 3-1 triumph over Manchester City at Anfield Liverpool's PL wins in November and December included victory in the Merseyside Derby and the 3-1 triumph over Manchester City at Anfield

"Throughout my career, I've always doubted myself and it has kind of worked for me, brought out the best in me, putting performances in I can be proud of.

"He's a fantastic man, a fantastic manager, and for him to think I don't have negatives is great. He likes the Scottish people, I know he does, he gets on really well with Kenny Dalglish.

"He's the father figure of this training ground, this group of boys, and he's here for us in every way, whether on the pitch or off the pitch. That's why we're so successful just now, it's down to him, and long may that continue.

"I know it's a work thing, and he's my manager, but we're more than that, we're a family here and that's why we've been so successful."

Kop 10: Liverpool's goalscoring substitutes

LiverpoolFC.TV - 10 hours 58 min ago

Divock Origi scored one of the most important goals by a substitute in Liverpool history a year ago today.

Off the bench in the 2019 Champions League final against Tottenham Hotspur, with the Reds narrowly 1-0 up, the Belgian was given a glimpse of the net on 87 minutes.

After a touch to set himself, Origi slammed a low left-footer into the bottom corner, prompting joyous celebrations and ensuring a sixth European Cup for the club.

It was far from the first time the No.27 had made a memorable impact as a substitute; indeed, Origi has made a habit of it since joining Liverpool.

But where exactly does he rank, statistically, among the Reds' super subs?

To mark the anniversary of his iconic finish at Estadio Metropolitano, we took a look at the numbers...

No.1 – David Fairclough – 18

Unsurprisingly, the man who became known as 'Supersub' sits atop this list - and by some distance, too.

Fairclough was on target 18 times as a substitute across his eight years in the Liverpool team, accounting for a third of his total strikes for the club.

His most famous contribution from the bench was, of course, the tie-winning finish against Saint-Etienne in March 1977 that maintained the Reds' course to a first ever European Cup triumph.

But Fairclough's haul also included a stunning solo goal to win the Merseyside derby at Anfield the previous season, the striker slaloming the length of the Everton half before finding the net.

No.2 – Daniel Sturridge – 13

Sturridge is Liverpool's most prolific substitute of the modern era, with the England international scoring on 13 occasions from the bench during his six-and-a-half years at Anfield.

His collection began with a consolation at Old Trafford and also featured a memorable 89th-minute equaliser, via his head, at Goodison Park in November 2013.

The striker's best intervention was almost certainly his last, however - a remarkable, long-range swerver to rescue a point against former club Chelsea in September 2018.

No.3 – Ryan Babel – 12

More than half of Babel's goals for Liverpool came in substitute appearances, including two braces off the bench by the Dutch attacker.

There was a victory-sealing finish at the Kop end when the Reds eventually saw off Arsenal in a Champions League thriller at Anfield in 2008.

Most significant of all, however, was Babel's winning strike against Manchester United later that year - just five minutes after entering the action.

No.4 – Divock Origi – 9

Fourth on this last statistically, with time still to add to his tally, the importance of Origi's goals make him one of the most impactful substitutes in LFC history.

His first strike off the bench provided a sign of things to come as the Belgian forward notched a last-gasp leveller against West Bromwich Albion from distance.

But he really ramped things up with a 96th-minute Merseyside derby winner in December 2018, his nudge over the line sparking pandemonium inside Anfield.

A huge goal at Newcastle United preceded his landmark effort in Madrid a year ago today, Origi's clinical hit assuring European Cup No.6 for the Reds.

No.5 – Steven Gerrard – 8

Gerrard did the vast majority of his business in the starting XI, of course, but the talismanic former Liverpool captain chipped in with eight goals off the bench, too.

That collection included a hat-trick, no less, to overturn a deficit when Napoli visited Anfield in the 2010 Europa League group stage.

Sent on at the outset of the second half with the hosts trailing 1-0, Gerrard bagged three times in the final quarter-hour to impose a typically emphatic influence.

No.6 – Djibril Cisse – 7

Cisse was on target seven times as a substitute across the two seasons he spent with the Reds, with each of them in fact registered during 2005-06.

His most valuable appearance off the bench was undoubtedly the 2005 UEFA Super Cup final against CSKA Moscow, who led 1-0 when the Frenchman was introduced on 79 minutes.

Within three minutes Cisse equalised; then, in extra-time, he put Rafael Benitez's side in front and for good measure set up Luis Garcia for Liverpool's third.

= No.7 – Michael Owen, Ian Rush, Vladimir Smicer, Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke – 6

Five players have netted half-a-dozen goals as a substitute for Liverpool, with Firmino the most recent addition to the group.

The Brazilian came off the bench in the semi-final of December's FIFA Club World Cup to nudge in a 90th-minute winner past Monterrey.
