Cycle to Anfield on a matchday

LiverpoolFC.TV - 1 hour 42 min ago

Liverpool FC's free Cycle Hub service is returning to Anfield for the new season.

The initiative allows fans who cycle to the stadium to drop off and park their bike safely and securely with an attendant at Stanley Park car park on Priory Road.

The service is open three hours prior to kick-off and will close one hour after the final whistle, with attendants from Cycling Projects on hand to assist fans with the parking and retrieving of their bikes.

Gail Riley, an LFC supporter and regular Cycle Hub user, said: “The guys who look after the hub are very friendly and professional – they give a great first impression of the club.

“The hub is easy and straightforward to use – I’ll definitely be using it next season. I cycle from Woolton along the No.62 cycle route, so it takes about 55 minutes to get to the ground.

“The safety of my bike is paramount. It’s fantastic that the club provides this service and has two people manning the hub; without this I wouldn’t cycle. It’s a great way to get to the ground.”

Last season, Gail won a home shirt signed by the first team after successfully completing her Cycle Hub loyalty card.

This season, the Cycle Hub loyalty card scheme will continue, with Reds fans receiving a loyalty card which is stamped at each game. Every supporter that receives two stamps will be entered into a free prize draw to win LFC cycling goodies.

Once a supporter receives five stamps, they will then be entered into a prize draw to win a signed shirt.

Andrew Parkinson, operations director at LFC, said: “We are pleased that the LFC Cycle Hub continues to prove popular amongst fans.

“The service makes it easier for fans to travel to Anfield on a matchday. We would like to encourage fans to utilise this free service alongside other modes of public transport.”

The Cycle Hub will be available from Saturday August 19, when the Reds welcome Crystal Palace to Anfield for their first home game of the season.

Boss on Anfield return, Palace and De Boer

LiverpoolFC.TV - 2 hours 17 min ago

Jürgen Klopp is relishing Liverpool's return to Anfield this weekend, with the boss also discussing the threat Crystal Palace will pose under their new coach Frank de Boer during his pre-match press conference on Thursday.

After beginning the season with trips to Watford and Hoffenheim, the Reds will host the Eagles in their first home game of the campaign on Saturday.

As well as providing a fitness update on Daniel Sturridge, Philippe Coutinho and Nathaniel Clyne and Liverpool's activity in the transfer market, Klopp talked about Andy Robertson and the topics listed above.

Read on for the manager's quotes on Anfield, Palace, De Boer and his discussions with his friend David Wagner, who led Huddersfield Town to an opening-day win over the Eagles...

On Palace and returning to Anfield…

We played Crystal Palace a few weeks ago. I’m not 100 per cent sure about the line-ups in that game, but Phil and Zaha were on the pitch and they will not be [this weekend]. I’m not sure if Adam played in this game, but that’s how it is…The only thing we know is it’s a tough game, probably both teams were not overly happy - we were not really disappointed about our first game, but it was how a first game can be, there are things to improve and it’s always like this, but even then we could’ve won which I think everybody knows. 

For Crystal Palace it was a little bit different, that’s how it is, but they are now coming to Anfield and I’m really looking forward to Anfield, it was a long time ago that we played there and that’s our place, that’s where we want to play, that’s where we want to be, especially after these two first games. We already showed we are ready again. Qualification for the Champions League is really tough and not just because of the quality of the game or the opponent, [you have] to be spot on from the first matchday on.

You have to be always, but usually you come in the season and you improve things but here we have the big tests immediately. So we have to be there again. Of course we know how they played and what they can change; Townsend didn’t start, Loftus-Cheek started, it was unlucky for them, the game development, so they want to strike back I’m sure, but again it’s Anfield and we have to show this.

On De Boer…

Wherever we go we all need results, that’s what it’s about. I have no time or space to think about what Frank de Boer could face at Crystal Palace, I’m sure they’ve tried a lot to change things and will still try and all that stuff, I know him even more from his time in Amsterdam. We played Amsterdam with Dortmund and they were always a footballing side, really lively, but it was Ajax so that is different and in the Dutch league they are a very dominant team. Now, we will see. I’m not sure they have already finished their ideas, their development or whatever. We’ll see what he brings in, but on the second matchday, I don’t thinks everything is already like it should be - that’s the same for us probably - but in this moment it is about getting results, and that’s what we’re fighting for.

On speaking with Wagner…

Yes, I have spoken to him, of course. [He said] force them to make an own goal after a few minutes! No, it’s not like this. Of course we saw the match and we saw the pre-season games of Crystal Palace, not just our match but all we could get. The analysis will happen now and even if I could get each tip or advice from him, I didn’t ask because it will be a different game, of course. That’s what we are thinking about.

Klopp: Andy Robertson's first-team chance will come

LiverpoolFC.TV - 2 hours 44 min ago

Jürgen Klopp maintains nothing should be read into Andy Robertson’s omission from Liverpool’s opening two matchday squads of 2017-18 as he insisted the summer signing’s chance will come soon enough.

The 23-year-old – who arrived from Hull City in late July – was not part of the 18-man selections for the Reds’ clashes with Watford and Hoffenheim, though did travel for both games.

However, Klopp admits he is pleased with how Robertson has settled into life at his new club and is confident he’ll be ready to grasp his opportunity when it comes along.

The manager told his pre-Crystal Palace press conference at Melwood: “Everything is OK with him. He is in a good moment and his development so far has been really good, he has adapted well.

“He is a really, really good player but it is how it is with specialist left full-backs, it is difficult; you play or it is possible you are not in the squad. He is on a really good way and everything is fine from my side. It is very early, he came in late and he has to adapt to our style of play and all that stuff.

“Things like this happen and we will see – we came back [from Germany] yesterday, had a little session and it was an intense game in Hoffenheim. We have one or two little things with players that we have to see because of the intensity of the game or even more.

“Things will change during the season a lot and the players need to know [that]. I’ve told them of course, but as player – which I was too a few years ago – it is not easy, but it is much too early to really think about this, it is a long season ahead.

“The rule is if you train really good, if you work really hard, if you improve, if you develop, everything will be good at the end.”

Jürgen Klopp's update on transfers

LiverpoolFC.TV - 3 hours 11 min ago

Jürgen Klopp has provided an update on Liverpool's activity in the transfer market.

The boss was asked for the latest on potential player arrivals and departures from Anfield during Thursday's press conference to preview the Reds' Premier League clash with Crystal Palace this weekend.

Klopp responded: “Unfortunately, my English is not good enough to give 500 different answers on the same question! You can obviously see the whole market worldwide is quite difficult. A few teams are still looking and we are looking, but that’s what I do when I’m not actually on the pitch or not thinking about training or not thinking about the next game.

“Of course we think [about] what we can do, but if the transfer window would have ended yesterday, we would already have a team which I like and which we can play football with. Of course, [we have] injuries here and there and that’s not too cool, but still in this moment a good team.

“The transfer window is a very important time, no doubt about this, but it’s also important what we do with the actual team. We will see what happens, I cannot change the answer because I don’t know.

“A few things can happen on both sides, but obviously everything leads to the direction of August 31 and it will, I can imagine, be a busy day, and if we [will be] involved in this busy day I don’t know, but we will see.”

LFC injury latest: Sturridge, Coutinho and Clyne

LiverpoolFC.TV - 3 hours 24 min ago

Jürgen Klopp has confirmed Daniel Sturridge is set to be fit for Saturday’s Anfield clash with Crystal Palace.

The striker returned to full training at Melwood this week and is likely to come into contention to make the squad for the Premier League encounter against the Eagles.

Elsewhere, Philippe Coutinho will miss the game due to a back injury.

Asked by journalists whether the duo would be ready to face Palace, Klopp told his pre-match press conference: “Daniel yes, I would say.

“Yesterday he was part of the complete session and looked really good, but always after injuries you have to wait to see how the player reacts to this intensity.

“Phil is not available; he is not training so far, so there is nothing new. It is always how it is with injured players, there is no real time on when he is back.”

Meanwhile, Klopp revealed there has been “no change” in Nathaniel Clyne’s condition as he continues his rehabilitation programme from a back issue.

There are many ways to travel to and from Anfield this season, and bus travel is one of the quickest and most convenient options, with a number of services operating across the city direct to the stadium.

LFC is encouraging fans to use public transport to travel on a matchday as it is the easiest and most efficient way to reach the game. There will be no additional parking available in the local area.  

Fans can take advantage of the following bus services on a matchday:

  • Fans can catch the 917 express bus service which will run direct from Liverpool city centre (St John’s Lane) to Anfield every 10 minutes. The LFC fan support team will also be on hand to assist supporters using buses departing straight after the game. There is a discounted ticket price of £4 return on the 917 express bus service, with fans receiving a discount on soft drinks at LFC kiosks within the stadium on presentation of their return ticket. 
  • From Liverpool city centre, fans can also take the 26 or 27 from Liverpool ONE bus station, or the 17 from Queen Square bus station directly to the ground. The stops for 68/168, which operates between Bootle and Aigburth, and the 14 and 19 (from Queen Square) are also a short walk away from the ground.
  • The 501 football service is also available post-match and operates direct to Lime Street Station (Skelhorne Street) from Walton Lane for up to two hours after the final whistle. Adult fares are £2, children £1. Please note this service only operates post-match.
