Alisson and Salah set to start for Liverpool against Manchester United

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 14:03

Alisson Becker is expected to make his long-awaited return for Liverpool at Manchester United this weekend - and is almost certain to be joined in the starting line-up by Mohamed Salah.

Alisson has been absent since suffering a calf injury during the Premier League opener at home to Norwich City on August 9.

The Brazil international returned to full training earlier this month and has spent extra time at Melwood during the international break working with goalkeeping coach John Achterberg.

The impressive form of stand-in Adrian has meant Liverpool have been under no pressure to rush Alisson's return.

But with the goalkeeper now back to full fitness, he is primed to feature at Old Trafford on Sunday as Jürgen Klopp's Premier League leaders aim for a record-equalling 18th successive top-flight victory.

Salah, too, is expected to be available for selection after recovering well from the ankle injury he suffered against Leicester City.

Liverpool will be further boosted in their preparations for the clash at United by an extended period of rest for Brazil duo Roberto Firmino and Fabinho.

The duo aren't expected to report back to Melwood until Thursday, while Sadio Mane has also been given a short break after featuring against Brazil.

The Senegalese is not eligible for his country's African Nations Championship clash in Guinea on Friday.

Huge boost for Liverpool with key duo set to start vs. Man United

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 13:51

Liverpool have been handed an early double boost ahead of the return of domestic action, with reports of full fitness for both Mohamed Salah and Alisson.


Neither player has been on international duty over the past week, with Salah excused from an Egypt call-up and Alisson completing the last stages of recovery from injury.

The forward has been a regular again this season for the Reds—but there were fears over an injury just before the international break after he was subjected to a late and dreadful tackle by Leicester’s Hamza Choudhury.

However, scans alleviated any lasting concerns of damage to Salah’s ankle and The Echo‘s Ian Doyle reports that he is fit and ready to play this weekend.

The club had already intimated that they were reasonably confident of his involvement, and Salah has spent part of this international break in Dubai on holiday.

Perhaps the bigger news on this occasion, though, comes at the opposite end of the pitch.

Alisson has been absent since the opening league game of the season, when he left the pitch injured against Norwich.

Since then he has been recovering from a calf tear, with new signing Adrian playing between the sticks in his absence. Alisson has missed 11 games in all competitions with his injury, but has been undergoing extra training with the keeper coach John Achterberg, says Doyle.

His timing could hardly be better, as Liverpool prepare to face Man United; a perennial rival, but one in disarray at present and languishing in the bottom half of the table.

A long-overdue win at Old Trafford on Sunday would only serve to highlight the gap between the clubs on the pitch at present, as well as extend Liverpool’s 100 per cent winning run to nine for the season and 18 in a row.

Academy boss on loan approach, Duncan’s exit & players who will make the grade

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 13:10

Liverpool’s Academy continues to play a key role in Jurgen Klopp‘s development of the team and the manager, Alex Inglethorpe, has revealed several insightful viewpoints of the club with regard to pushing youngsters through.


The recent League Cup win over MK Dons saw the latest batch of hopefuls get some game time for the senior side, with the likes of Curtis Jones, Ki-Jana Hoever, Rhian Brewster and Caoimhin Kelleher all involved, among others.

Jurgen Klopp has consistently shown he is willing to give youngsters the chance to be involved, from those who help bulk out the squad before moving on, to the standard-bearer of Academy graduates in modern times, Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Inglethorpe, who started with the Reds as U21 manager before being elevated to his current position overseeing the entire youth development, has explained in an interview with James Pearce of The Athletic several particularly interesting points regarding the Reds’ approach to player development.

First and foremost, though, he credits an interest from the senior side’s boss with being the primary driving factor—without which the Academy would be largely pointless.

“I just think the entire club benefits from having a manager who is fearless,” he said. “If he sees a young player doing better than an older player, he will play him.

“I’ll forever be grateful to Brendan Rodgers for giving me the opportunity to come here. He genuinely wanted to see the boys come through and do well, and that baton has been taken on by Jurgen.

“I’ve been very lucky at Liverpool to work with two managers who have been very passionate about developing youngsters and believing in their own.”

That’s all well and good, but players themselves now need to be “world-class” to break into Klopp’s team, which Inglethorpe notes is no easy task. There is, however, more than just one way to go about earning a spot—and Inglethorpe’s comments here can perhaps be expanded into the context of other youngsters at the club.

“You’ve got to take the place of someone who’s a Champions League winner and…top of the Premier League. It’s a big ask, but there are different ways of doing it.

“Trent has done it in one way, in terms of staying around, having the opportunity, taking it and, bit by bit, demonstrating to the manager that he’s capable of playing.

“Then you’ve got other players who go about it in a slightly different way. Harry Wilson would be the obvious example. Someone who has gone on loan to Crewe, Hull, Derby and now he’s in the Premier League scoring goals for Bournemouth.

“He’s on the way to maybe being a first-team option. I think he’s realistic enough to know he wouldn’t come back from his loan and take someone’s spot straight away, but he could maybe put pressure on positions 12, 13 and 14 on the bench, and make an impact playing in a percentage of games each year.

“Rhys [Williams, on loan at Kidderminster] is racking up the minutes there and doing really well. Not only is he learning how to deal with big, hairy-arsed centre-forwards, he’s also having to learn how to cook.

“He’s in a house with four or five other people and I get regular updates on what he’s eating. He’s really enjoying it. It’s a tough league for him.

That huge variance—from surprise opportunity, to learning different ways of playing, to a gradual climb up the league ladder—shows that players don’t immediately need to have been a feature on Klopp’s team-sheet by age 20 if they are to make it at Anfield.

A player’s growth isn’t necessarily linear, and the learning curve isn’t one-size-fits-all.

One trait they do seem to share, though, is a relative lack of time spent in the English developmental league for U23s: the Premier League 2.

“If you look at the younger players who have broken through recently, whether it’s been at Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham or United, they tend not to play many games in Premier 2,” Inglethorpe continued.

“They either seem to bypass it quite quickly and move into the first team like Trent, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood or they might play a bit in Premier 2 and then go out on loan – Mason Mount, Reece James, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Harry Wilson. I don’t think it serves a purpose to play in Premier 2 for a long time.”

Taking that into the context of current Liverpool youngsters, it could be then suggested that the likes of Adam Lewis or Rhian Brewster will either be in the squad or out on loan sooner rather than later—and the same goes for Curtis Jones.

Interestingly, while Inglethorpe notes Jones can play both wide in the front line and through the centre in midfield, he likens him more to Adam Lallana than Sadio Mane: good movement, technique, vision and all-round offensive ability, rather than elite goalscoring, lightning pace and a non-stop drive toward goal.

While Jones has played this season and could step up further in future, one who opted against rising through the ranks any further was Bobby Duncan, who joined the Reds last year but left in summer for Fiorentina.

Inglethorpe accepts not every player can be convinced that this is the right path for them, but equally takes the view that ups and downs are part of the process and that players must learn to adapt accordingly, mentally as much as technically.

“Look, not every player is necessarily going to want to wait and develop under us and we have to respect that.

“To break into elite football is going to be difficult, wherever you are. You need psychological stamina. You need to be able to put the hard yards in over a consistent period and accept the setbacks that come your way.

“I can only speak for myself, but you spend an awful lot of time trying to get to Liverpool so I wouldn’t be in a hurry to leave too quickly. I think that’s the same for most players.”

The focus remains, though, on those who are still at Kirkby and who can contribute in future at Anfield.

Many are already impressing this season: Jake Cain, Layton Stewart and Leighton Clarkson, Elijah Dixon-Bonner and Fidel O’Rourke are a handful, alongside the likes of Hoever, Yasser Larouci and Jones in pre-season.

Inglethorpe is in no doubt that some will go on to represent the Reds in a significant manner—and others will contribute in a more indirect way, as the likes of Ryan Kent did this summer by being sold to fund future investment.

“There are players on here who will play for the first team, I promise you.

“My definition of that is players who will play for this club regularly and help Liverpool win trophies. There’s some real talent here, but we have to be patient.

“It’s really important that we pay our way. We can assist the first team in a variety of ways. That money can then be reinvested back into the club.”

With Klopp still keen to allow talented youngsters room to shine and an Academy which has a proven recent record of developing that raw ability, the future for Liverpool looks extremely bright, especially with the pending merger of training facilities for next season.

The full interview by Pearce, encompassing further discussions on young players who played against MK Dons, the revamp of the Kirkby training facility, local recruitment and more, can be read on The Athletic here.

Alisson ready for injury return as Liverpool visit Manchester United

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 12:56

Liverpool will have Alisson available for the visit to Manchester United on Sunday after their first-choice goalkeeper stepped up his recovery from injury during the international break.

The Premier League leaders have been without their influential keeper since the opening game of the season but, nine weeks after damaging a calf muscle against Norwich, the 27-year-old is expected to reclaim his place at Old Trafford.

Alisson has undergone an intensive and individually tailored training programme over the past week without repercussions. The Brazil international, named UEFA’s goalkeeper of 2018-19 during his injury lay-off, is fit to replace Adrian, who has proven an impressive deputy for Jürgen Klopp’s side and boasts a 100 per cent record in the Premier League as a Liverpool player.

Mohamed Salah, who sustained an ankle injury against Leicester before the international break, is also expected to be fit for Sunday.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp will go head-to-head on Super Sunday Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp will go head-to-head on Super Sunday Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Jurgen Klopp will go head-to-head on Super Sunday

Manchester United host Liverpool on Super Sunday hoping to breathe new life into their season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, but would any of their players get into Jurgen Klopp's side?

It has been a season of contrasting fortunes for two of England's most illustrious clubs, with leaders Liverpool looking to equal Manchester City's Premier League record for consecutive wins (18), while United are 12th and only two points above the relegation zone.

Man Utd vs Liverpool

October 20, 2019, 3:00pm

Live on

As they prepare to renew their rivalry, former Leeds and England full-back Danny Mills has selected his combined XI...

Goalkeeper Alisson is chosen ahead of David de Gea despite being injured this season Alisson is chosen ahead of David de Gea despite being injured this season Alisson is chosen ahead of David de Gea despite being injured this season

Adrian has come in and done incredibly well. I still think David de Gea is a very good goalkeeper but Alisson, if he's fit, without doubt makes my starting XI.

Full-backs Luke Shaw doesn't make the side with Andrew Robertson at left back Luke Shaw doesn't make the side with Andrew Robertson at left back Luke Shaw doesn't make the side with Andrew Robertson at left back

Andy Robertson is one of the best left-backs in Europe at the moment and Trent Alexander-Arnold's quality going forward is exceptional.

They work well with the goalkeeper and know where to be so that comes into play too. There was no doubt at all about the full-backs.

Centre-backs Joel Matip partners Virgil van Dijk in the preferred combined centre-back pairing Joel Matip partners Virgil van Dijk in the preferred combined centre-back pairing Joel Matip partners Virgil van Dijk in the preferred combined centre-back pairing

This is more controversial. If it was the start of the season with no games played, I would have gone for Virgil van Dijk and Harry Maguire.

But because Maguire has not been in fantastic form and because of the partnership Joel Matip has formed with Van Dijk and the performances he's put in over the first eight games of the season, I'm going to pair them together.

Midfield  There is no room for Paul Pogba in Danny's all-Liverpool midfield  There is no room for Paul Pogba in Danny's all-Liverpool midfield There is no room for Paul Pogba in Danny's all-Liverpool midfield

It's all Liverpool again. There's nobody at Man Utd who - in terms of performing on a consistent basis - would make it at the moment.

I'd even go as far as to say James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would make the cut.

Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum are playing really well. If Paul Pogba is in top form, then yes, of course he can get in, but he hasn't so far.

Forwards Sadio Mane celebrates with Roberto Firmino after scoring this season Sadio Mane celebrates with Roberto Firmino after scoring this season Sadio Mane celebrates with Roberto Firmino after scoring this season

No surprise, I'm going with the Liverpool front three. They've been exceptional. Roberto Firmino, the way he drops into the hole, complements Sadio Mane and Mo Salah.

They've won eight straight games in the Premier League off the back of winning the Champions League and their form last term.

 Marcus Rashford is enduring a difficult run of form but has been injured  Marcus Rashford is enduring a difficult run of form but has been injured Marcus Rashford is enduring a difficult run of form but has been injured

Man Utd are halfway down the table. There's a big gulf between the two at the moment. You might think about Marcus Rashford if one of the Liverpool three wasn't available but even he's not in great form so you might end up tweaking the formation and put Daniel James in there.

At the moment, you're saying Man Utd are two, three years behind Liverpool and Man City at the moment. It's a transition process.

Danny Mills' combined XI is made up entirely of Liverpool players Danny Mills' combined XI is made up entirely of Liverpool players Danny Mills' combined XI is made up entirely of Liverpool players

If Liverpool don't win it will be a huge surprise. In recent times there would be several from either side but it's a clean sweep right now.

We've heard from Danny - now we'd like to hear from you. Is he right to overlook the entire Manchester United squad? Select your combined XI below…

Anke Preuss named LFC Women's Standard Chartered Player of the Month

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 11:30

Anke Preuss has been named as the first ever winner of the Liverpool FC Women Standard Chartered Player of the Month award.

The goalkeeper collected the prize at the team’s training base at Solar Campus having been selected by manager Vicky Jepson.

Preuss figured in all four of the Reds’ fixtures during September and was in excellent form despite a tough start to the season collectively.

“It’s always really nice to be recognised for your individual performance so I’m really pleased to receive the award but, of course, for me everything is about the team,” said the 27-year-old.

Defeats against Reading, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United in the Women’s Super League, and a Continental Tyres Cup loss at the hands of Sheffield United, made for a difficult beginning to the new campaign.

But manager Jepson, whose side picked up their first WSL point of 2019-20 in a 1-1 draw with Bristol City on Sunday, felt Preuss could be pleased with her performances between the posts.

“It’s really good to see Anke high in confidence, making big, big saves in big moments of the game when we’ve needed her,” the boss said.

“It’s testament to the hard work she and our other ‘keeper, Fran Kitching, have been putting in with our goalkeeping coach Jen Herst.

“Anke’s in after every game to look at her clips with Jen and I think that one-to-one time, looking at possible marginal gains, has had a really positive impact on her performance.

“She’s a worthy winner of the Standard Chartered award.”

'My family watched my Liverpool debut in the away end'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 10/14/2019 - 10:00

September 25, 2019 is a date Caoimhin Kelleher will never forget.

The goalkeeper made his senior Liverpool debut in a Carabao Cup victory at Milton Keynes Dons and marked the occasion with a series of excellent saves to preserve a treasured clean sheet.

He did so not just in front of a capacity crowd and live television cameras, but with his nearest and dearest watching on with the travelling Reds at Stadium MK.

“A few of my family were in the away end with the Liverpool fans,” the 20-year-old explained in the new edition of the official Liverpool FC magazine.

“My mum, my sister, my brother and my girlfriend all came over to watch the game and support me, which was really nice.

“I didn’t see them in the stand when I was on the pitch, but I saw them all after the game and we were all quite speechless, to be honest.

“It wasn’t awkward, it was just a weird one because I’d just made my Liverpool debut and didn’t know what to say really!”

Though Liverpool were good value for their win in the third-round tie, Kelleher was called into action several times in the second half.

The Republic of Ireland U21 international responded with smart reactions to keep the League One hosts out and achieve the ideal outcome for a ‘keeper on debut.

“It was nice to make those saves in those moments, just to be there for the team,” he said.

“I was just doing my job when called upon, so it was good to do that and be in the right position to make those saves. It was nice to keep a clean sheet but it was a bonus, really.

“I wasn’t going into the game thinking, ‘I have to keep a clean sheet’. I just went into it thinking, ‘I have to do my job’. When the final whistle went and I knew I had a clean sheet, it was a nice moment.”

Liverpool’s reward for beating MK Dons is a fourth-round meeting with fellow Premier League side Arsenal, to be played at Anfield at the end of this month.

Kelleher would, naturally, welcome the chance to represent the first team at the stadium, having been a substitute for four home games so far this season.

“Of course it would be nice to play at Anfield for the first time for the senior team,” he continued.

“I’ve been on the bench at Anfield and I get goose bumps when the fans sing You’ll Never Walk Alone before the game, it’s an amazing atmosphere there.

“So it would be a lovely moment, but I’m not thinking about that. I’m just taking it as it comes. I’m not expecting anything, I’m just going to train as best I can and if I’m selected I’ll be ready.”

Kelleher worked closely with Adrian and Andy Lonergan – who each joined the club in the summer – during Alisson Becker’s two-month injury absence.

The No.62 revealed the supportive relationship fostered by the goalkeepers at Melwood and why Adrian’s performance level since he signed has been so impressive.

“They’ve been really good – top, to be fair,” he said. “Obviously as a young goalkeeper learning from them is great, but as people they have been really supportive of me.

“Andy was the sub goalie for the game against MK Dons and really helped me that night with his experience, giving me advice and telling me to enjoy it. Adrian texted me a couple of days before the game saying ‘Good luck’ and texted me afterwards saying ‘Congratulations’.

“They are both really nice guys and are passing all their experience on, but I also have to look at how well Adrian has done since coming in. Considering he had very little time to get used to things here he has done very, very well.
