Ливерпуль на Soccer.ru - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:35

Нападающий «Ливерпуля» Дэниел Старридж продолжает бороться за доверие главного тренера Юргена Клоппа и уже не раз выручал команду, когда выходил на поле.

Liverpool v Huddersfield Preview - Potential Key BattlesHuddersfield Town v Liverpool Preview - Can...

PremierLeague.com - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:35

A wretched international break filled with injuries is over. For the Liverpool players, it’s time to get back on the road, as they get ready to travel to Huddersfield for the late kick-off on Saturday.

Huddersfield are winless in the Premier League, having only managed three draws from their eight games, and against a Liverpool side that hasn’t conceded in the league at Anfield since February, there could be few bigger tests for David Wagner’s side.

For the Reds, injuries or niggles to Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Mo Salah and Naby Keita have soured the international break, but it is expected that most, if not all, of them will be fit for this game. “Jurgen loves his smokescreens,” said David Wagner, as he expected to face a full-strength Liverpool. If Wagner is right about the smokescreens, there will be sighs of relief heaved in Liverpool fandom.

Here are the key individual duels to look forward to from the game.

MO SALAH v CHRIS LÖWE

Whatever anyone says about Salahs season so far, one unanimously accepted truth is that Salah has got to be doing better. He hasn’t exactly been poor in most games he’s played, but he’s not reached the heights that everyone knows he can. Even without comparing him against his own high standards, there is room for improvement.

On Saturday evening, he will be up against Löwe, who has played for Klopp during his time at Dortmund. The German has already shown multiple times during Huddersfield’s time in the Premier League that he can be susceptible to raw pace, and the ‘King of Egypt’ has got plenty of that to burn.

Salah has been getting into goal-scoring positions for the most part of this season. It is his zen-like composure from the back-end of last season that has deserted him. The underlying attacking numbers are still strong for Salah, so there isn’t cause for panic just yet. There’s cause for displeasure about his performance thus far, but not for panic. Like the rest of the attacking part of the side, Salah has not hit the heights we know he is capable of.

Even apart from Löwe, none of the other Huddersfield defenders are particularly blessed in terms of pace, so it could be a good afternoon for him. Whoever starts on the left wing for Wagner will have to help Löwe, and double up against Salah. Who that man will be could be a very interesting point to ponder for the Terriers.

VIRGIL VAN DIJK v LAURENT DEPOITRE

Over the course of the international break, much conjecture has revolved around the health of Liverpool’s Dutch colossus. He had to be dropped out of the Dutch squad for their friendly against Belgium on Tuesday, but coach Ronald Koeman’s comments during the week were a little bit alarming. Koeman said that Van Dijk had been taking injections for weeks to enable him to play with two broken ribs.

He will be back on Sunday, though, if indications are to be believed, and for Depoitre, it will be the toughest test he faces in the league. Nobody gets any change out of Van Dijk in aerial duels, but that is Depoitre’s biggest strength. He’s not the quickest across the tough, he can’t beat his man with a piece of skill on the ball. So he has to rely on his strength and ability in the air to get the better of defenders.

He’s not going to get anything out of trying to out-muscle Van Dijk or beat him in the air. He would even be better served to try and attack through the Liverpool right, against either Joe Gomez or Dejan Lovren.

Van Dijk, though, will have to contend with his own body first. If the Dutchman is anywhere close to his fittest, Depoitre should be a cakewalk for him to deal with.

ROBERTO FIRMINO v MATIAS JORGENSEN

“Roberto Firmino, world class. Everyday,” thundered Jurgen Klopp sometime last season. That has not been true in this campaign though, as the Brazilian has misfired more often than he has been influential in proceedings for the Reds.

It has been a weird start to the season from an attacking perspective, even though Liverpool have seven wins from 11 games so far. Firmino’s anonymity in some of those games could easily be tagged as the reason why Klopp’s men weren’t as big an attacking force as they’d have liked to be.

The unit that is the front three needs to start clicking, but they have been off the boil individually as well. Firmino’s decision-making has been shoddy, at best and he has taken far too much time on the ball before releasing it, by which team he has made things difficult for himself.

Firmino also needs more from the midfielders, in terms of getting closer to him. Gini Wijnaldum or Naby Keita need to start grabbing games by the scruff of the neck, and dragging teams into their own final third, so that in the congestion, Firmino’s intelligence can add value.

For Jorgensen, the task on Saturday is simple. Stay close to Firmino, and don’t allow him to turn with the ball in dangerous areas. If Firmino is doing that, that’s a sign that Liverpool are playing really well.

Вагнер: «Прекрасно знаю, как Клопп любит жаловаться после матчей сборных».

Ливерпуль на Soccer.ru - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:35

Наставник «Хаддерсфилда» Дэвид Вагнер считает, что главный тренер «Ливерпуля» Юрген Клопп излишне прибедняется, когда критикует турниры национальных команд, поскольку они приводят к травмам его игроков.

Я знаю Юргена достаточно давно. Он любит создавать дымовую завесу. Думаю, что большинство его игроков будут в строю. Я прекрасно знаю, как он любит жаловаться после матчей сборных!

Jurgen Klopp draws Anthony Joshua comparison in criticism of Nations League

BBC Sport - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:08
Jurgen Klopp

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has compared the Nations League to world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua having to box "every second night".

The Reds boss called the competition "senseless" before the international break, citing added strain on players.

Nations can be promoted and relegated in the new Uefa format, which replaces friendlies with competitive games.

"I like competition but at one point somebody has to step back and think, they are players," Klopp said.

"If they don't perform I am angry, so how can we make sure they perform?"

Liverpool, who are third in the Premier League and travel to Huddersfield on Saturday, had players including Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson in Nations League action.

But their casualties were Mohamed Salah and Naby Keita, who sustained muscle injuries in Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, and Sadio Mane, who broke a thumb training with Senegal.

The Nations League offers a route to qualification for the 2020 European Championships. Klopp believes it is a "good idea" as a concept but one that does not work in practice because of a lack of "space" in the calendar.

He added: "At one point we have to think do we want opera every night, or every two months?

"You don't want to see Anthony Joshua fighting every second night. That's not possible. In no other sports - in American football you have a summer break that is nearly longer than our season has.

"In basketball they have a summer league. Only in football everyone wants big competitions where you can get relegated, promoted, playing for something.

"The Nations League is a good idea but do it in another sport because in football there is no space for it. I realise that I could have told my coffee machine because nobody is really interested [in my opinion]."

Huddersfield v Liverpool: Team news

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:05

Liverpool will check on the fitness of several players ahead of Saturday's Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town.

Naby Keita is not expected to be involved at John Smith’s Stadium with Jürgen Klopp ‘pretty sure’ the midfielder is unavailable due to a hamstring strain picked up on international duty.

Sadio Mane underwent successful surgery on a hand injury earlier this week and there have been fitness concerns over James Milner, Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk.

Asked for the latest update at his pre-match press conference on Friday, Klopp said: “We had a session yesterday and a few of the boys trained, so we’ll have to see how they’ve reacted after that.”

[embedded content]

On the rib injury that had previously troubled Van Dijk, who played only the first of Netherlands’ two matches during the international break, the manager commented: “It settled pretty quickly.

“Football players have to play very often with some kind of pain, that’s how it is. What it is exactly is not too important. It’s all good. He has no problems with that anymore.”

Fabinho is ‘close’ to his first Premier League start for the club according to Klopp, who has been boosted by the availability of Adam Lallana again.

“Training looks tremendous,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com of Lallana.

“We still want to be careful – not too careful but, of course, careful [so] that we reach the point where we don’t have to think about it anymore. But he is 100 per cent back.”

Huddersfield will definitely be without Tommy Smith (groin), Terence Kongolo (hamstring) and Danny Williams (knee), manager David Wagner confirmed at his pre-match press conference.

Elsewhere, Isaac Mbenza’s knee issue will be assessed, while Wagner will make a late decision on whether to include the returning Ramadan Sobhi in his squad after six weeks out.

The Terriers boss expects Philip Billing to be available for the game in Yorkshire, however, revealing ‘all the signs are positive’.

The match marks the third competitive meeting in English football between close friends Klopp and Wagner, with the Reds having won both fixtures last season 3-0.

“It’s a great game, it’s a game I really look forward to, it’s a game when the fixtures came out I had an eye on,” said the latter.

“It’s a special game for me personally, there’s no doubt about it, but it is for us as a football club. We face Liverpool – one of the biggest clubs in the world.”

Last time out

Burnley v Huddersfield Town, October 6: Lossl, Lowe, Zanka, Schindler, Durm, Billing, Hogg, Mooy, Van La Parra, Pritchard, Depoitre.

Liverpool v Manchester City, October 7: Alisson, Gomez, Van Dijk, Lovren, Robertson, Henderson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Klopp wary of Huddersfield, plus Chilwell links return – Friday’s Liverpool FC News Roundup

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 18:00

We round up the latest Liverpool news and transfer rumours on Friday, on the eve of the Reds’ Premier League clash with Huddersfield Town.


Main Headlines Klopp Wary of Huddersfield Threat

Jurgen Klopp comes up against his close friend David Wagner on Saturday evening, with the latter’s Huddersfield side tipped for relegation this season.

Klopp is not taking Liverpool’s opponents for granted, however, describing the fixture to LiverpoolFC.com as a potential “trap” for his team:

“I watch them more because I want to see how David is doing.

“It’s a typical football thing—I heard a few people talking about Huddersfield: ‘Not good enough here, not good enough there, they have to score more.’

“They had more possession against Tottenham than Tottenham. Not a lot of teams can say that about themselves. At Burnley they had more possession.

“They play proper football, they are difficult to catch. They play different systems. So far it was unlucky. This game is a trap, a 100 percent trap.”

In many ways, this is the Reds’ ‘easiest’ game for a while, following a tough run before the international break, but underestimating the Terriers would be a grave error.

Sturridge “Feeling Great” Ahead of Upcoming Run

Daniel Sturridge has made a pleasing start to the season, scoring four goals and looking fitter than he has in a long time.

Speaking to LiverpoolFC.com, the striker says he feels “amazing” ahead of another busy run of fixtures, during which time he is expected to earn his fair share of playing time:

“I’m feeling great [and am] looking forward to contributing to the team.

“I’m feeling amazing so I can’t really complain, I can have no complaints. I’m just excited for the next month coming up and hopefully we can get some good results in that month.

“Whatever the manager feels is best for the team [is best]. Whoever’s the right players to play, [we] will push ourselves to the limit.

“We’ve got a great squad so you’ve just got to be ready to give your all, give your everything, to push yourself to the limit.”

Sturridge will be pushing for a start at the John Smith’s Stadium this weekend, although much could rest on whether or not Sadio Mane misses out through injury.

Liverpool Back in for Chilwell?

Before Liverpool signed Andy Robertson in the summer of 2017, Ben Chilwell was the man Klopp was tracking as his potential new first-choice left-back.

The Leicester City man’s stock is only rising following his recent England call-up and the Mirror‘s David Maddock believes he is still a transfer target for the Reds.

With Alberto Moreno set to leave at the end of the season a new left-back may be required, even though youngster Adam Lewis could be drafted into the first-team squad.

The biggest stumbling block over a move for Chilwell is whether he is happy possibly playing second fiddle to Robertson, considering his current standing in the game.

Rotation could ensure that both are used fairly regularly, but Chilwell will believe he should be starting matches every week now.

According to the Telegraph, 21-year-old is in fact set to sign an improved deal with Leicester.

Markovic’s Attitude Praised by Critchley

Lazar Markovic‘s Liverpool career has been one of huge disappointment, having failed to come close to reaching his potential.

The Serb is currently training with the Reds’ U23s and boss Neil Critchley has lauded his attitude, saying he hopes he will eventually progress in his career.

“Lazar has been training with us for a while now and I’ve got to say he’s been brilliant to work with,” Critchley told the Liverpool Echo.

“We’ve enjoyed having him around and he’s been great with the young lads.

“He’s humble, he listens to what’s asked of him and he’s been professional. He gets on well with the other players. He played as a centre-forward against Arsenal and on the right wing against West Brom.

“We don’t know how long he will be with us. Eventually, I’m sure his career will go on a different path but while he’s here we want everyone to benefit.”

Markovic failed to secure a deadline-day move to Anderlecht in the summer, but will be available again in January after having been left out of Klopp’s Premier League squad.

Kent Discusses “Recreating” Himself at Rangers

Rangers Ryan Kent during the UEFA Europa League, Second Qualifying Round, Second Leg match at Ibrox, Glasgow.

Few Rangers players have caught the eye more than Ryan Kent this season, with the youngster thriving under Steven Gerrard at Ibrox.

In an interview with the Herald, Kent spoke about going up a gear as a footballer and moving on from disappointing spells at Freiburg and Bristol City last season:

“I think, more than anything, I have got a point to prove to myself.

“I will always be my No. 1 critic. For me, this season is all about finding myself again and recreating myself as a footballer.

“After last years’ disappointment, it has been a great start to the season for myself, and the club as well.”

Kent has scored twice so far in 2018/19, but it his all-round impact that has caught the eye, with the 21-year-old a key attacking presence as Rangers look to thrive in both the Scottish Premiership and the Europa League.

Клопп о критике Лиги наций: «Вы хотите ходить на оперу каждый день или раз в два месяца?»

Sports.ru - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 17:50

Главный тренер «Ливерпуля» Юрген Клопп объяснил свою критику Лиги наций.

Ранее немец назвал ее «самым бессмысленным турниром в мире».

«Вы все слишком раздули мои комментарии про Лигу наций. У каждого есть свое мнение. Но последние обстоятельства (четыре травмы основных игроков «Ливерпуля» – прим. Sports.ru) говорят за себя, почему это слишком.

Они говорят: «Да, у нас теперь настоящие матчи, настоящие соперники, это лучше, чем просто товарищеские матчи». И тому подобное.

Возможно, люди хотят, чтобы Энтони Джошуа (британский боксер-чемпион в супертяжелом весе – прим. Sports.ru) дрался через день. Но это невозможно.

В других видах спорта людей об этом не просят. В американском футболе перерыв длиннее, чем наш сезон. Настоящий справедливый перерыв! То же самое в баскетболе. 

В футболе, потому что, по всей видимости, в нем все заинтересованы, только клубы вылетают и выходят дивизионом выше в разных соревнованиях. Когда Уэльс играет за что-то с Ирландией, на стадионе совсем другая атмосфера.

Вы действительно хотите ходить на оперу каждый день, а не раз в два месяца? Вот в чем вопрос. С этим нужно быть осторожнее. Это все, что я имел в виду.

Конечно, мне нравится дух соревновательности. Но в один прекрасный момент кому-то придется сделать шаг назад и сказать: «Погодите, это же игроки. Я хочу на это смотреть, но если они не играют на должном уровне, меня это бесит». Как нам вынудить играть их на должном уровне? Вот в чем вопрос.

Хороша ли идея Лиги наций в целом? Запустите ее в другом виде спорта. В футболе этому нет места, как мне кажется.

Я сейчас понял, что мог сказать все это своей кофеварке, потому что никому это на самом деле неинтересно. Но это мое мнение. И оно не изменится», – заявил Клопп.

Keita out for Liverpool as Klopp waits on Mane fitness

Goal.com - Fri, 19/10/2018 - 17:32

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed Naby Keita is likely to miss the trip to Huddersfield Town but left the door open for Sadio Mane to feature on Saturday.

Keita picked up a hamstring issue while playing for Guinea as Liverpool's injury problems piled up during the international break.

Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk overcame their fitness issues to train on Thursday, although forward Mane was absent after undergoing hand surgery.

Editors' Picks

Klopp is yet to decide whether the 26-year-old forward will be involved against Huddersfield, who are yet to register a win in the Premier League this season.

"A few of the boys trained and we have to see how they react," the Reds boss told the media.

"The only thing that's pretty sure is that Naby will not be available. With all the rest, we have to see how it develops."

Netherlands international Van Dijk could come in for close attention from Huddersfield following Ronald Koeman's revelation the defender has been carrying two broken ribs.

Klopp, however, removed any doubt over the key centre-back's readiness for the contest.

"You saw when he went off against Southampton [that something was wrong]. Virgil would not leave the pitch without major problems," the German said.

Article continues below

"I would say it has healed pretty quickly. Footballers very often have to play with some kind of pain. He has no problems with that anymore."

Meanwhile, midfielder Fabinho is close to a Premier League debut having surprisingly been overlooked since his arrival from Monaco.

"There's only one reason [he has not played] - because other players fit better in the moment," Klopp added. "I really think about who plays in each position. It will always take time for a new player to close the gap."
