Reds aim for unfamiliar territory under Klopp – Shrewsbury vs. Liverpool Preview

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 15:00

Liverpool make the trip to Shrewsbury for the fourth round of the FA Cup, where a much-changed side are set to be in action.


Shrewsbury vs. Liverpool

Sunday, January 26, 2020 – 5pm (GMT)
New Meadow
FA Cup Fourth Round
Referee: Andre Marriner

With 21 Premier League wins to their name, Liverpool were on the search for their 22nd last time out against a side many had tipped Jurgen Klopp’s men to stumble against for what would be only the second time.

And while Wolves asked a number of questions of the Reds in what was one of the toughest games to date, Liverpool held strong and again found a way to win through Roberto Firmino after Raul Jimenez had cancelled out Jordan Henderson’s opener.

The affair was a taxing one and now Klopp is set to look to his younger brigade, those on the fringes and those returning from injury as attention turns to the FA Cup.

The Reds earned their place in the fourth round after Curtis Jones netted his first senior goal in stunning fashion against a strong Everton XI, a game which saw fellow teenagers in Neco Williams and Harvey Elliott come to the fore.

At each time of asking, Klopp’s much-changed sides in the domestic cup competitions have risen to the occasion and now they face a side who sit 59 places below them in the Football League pyramid.

Shrewsbury currently sit 16th in League One, seven points off the play-off places, and are managed by former Hull and Wolves defender Sam Ricketts.

This season is Ricketts’ first full campaign at the helm having joined in December 2018, with his side securing the tie against the Reds thanks to a strike at the death in the third round replay against the Championship’s Bristol City.

Liverpool have never progressed beyond the fourth round of the competition since Klopp’s arrival, but this time around they’re heavy favourites to do just that.

While he was unlikely to feature on Sunday, Sadio Mane‘s hamstring injury sustained against Wolves remains the low point of the week with a potential return date not yet known.

Both James Milner and Xherdan Shaqiri are not expected to feature as they continue to recover from hamstring and calf injuries respectively.

However, there is welcome news on Naby Keita who “will be an option” should he have made it through the Reds’ training session on Friday.

Liverpool’s No. 8 has missed the last five games with a groin injury sustained during the warm-up ahead of the win over Sheffield United.

Klopp is to rotate heavily for the fixture having revealed he is to turn to “fresh legs” after three games in 12 days, with Adrian‘s place in between the sticks already confirmed, while Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip are both set to feature for the first time in 2020.

Fabinho is expected to be handed his first start since the end of November, while the likes of Williams, Jones, Elliott and Yasser Larouci are to be involved – with Divock Origi the man to lead the attack.

After a tough league debut, Takumi Minamino could feature once more while Pedro Chirivella could also be turned to as doubts continue to surround Adam Lallana‘s availability after being forced out of the matchday squad against Wolves with a virus.

Potential Liverpool XI: Adrian; Williams, Matip, Lovren, Larouci; Fabinho, Chirivella, Keita; Elliott, Jones, Origi

New Meadow, currently known as Montgomery Waters Meadow, opened in 2007, replacing Shrewsbury’s former ground Gay Meadow.

The club, formed in 1886, was the first side in the Football League to apply for safe standing in 2017, and they currently have 550 rail seats.

The two teams have only ever met once prior to the clash on Sunday, with Liverpool emerging as 4-0 victors in an FA Cup fourth round tie.

The game took place Gay Meadow in February 1996, where the win catapulted Roy Evans’ side to the final where they would finish as runners-up.

Stan Collymore, Robbie Fowler and Jason McAteer all found the net, with an own goal also added into the mix, with the latter three goals all coming in the final 20 minutes.

The Reds will be eager for history to repeat itself but they will need to reverse their fortunes on the road in the competition as they have won just one of their last five, while Shrewsbury have lost just one of their last 17 home FA Cup games.

Klopp’s View

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the boss was under no illusions that the meeting with Shrewsbury will be straightforward, but he is confident his players will approach the game with the right mentality:

“It’s clear without a winning mentality it’s difficult to win football games.

“But I don’t think the players left a shadow of a doubt this season that they want to win the game when they are part of the game.

“Wherever it is, whoever it was, whoever was the opponent. So [a winning mentality is] very important, of course.

“We know it’s a tough place to go, how it always is in cup competitions.”

Liverpool 'leading Barcelona and Real Madrid' in race for wonderkid

HEAD NEWS - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 14:48

Liverpool are said to be keeping a close eye on Benfica youngster Rafael Brito ahead of a potential bid for the midfielder amid rumours of interest from the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Although Brito has yet to make a senior appearance for the Primeira Liga side he has impressed during his displays for Benfica B, while he has also become a permanent fixture in the Portugal U-19 team.

It has been suggested that Benfica have tied him down to a new contract which includes a £38m minimum release fee clause, but according to Portuguese publication Record this is only activated when Brito makes his league debut.

Liverpool's interest is said to be strongest out of those monitoring the player, and it remains to be seen whether they make a bid for Brito during the current transfer window or wait to see how he develops.

The Reds have invested in youth a number of times recently, including the summer signings of 18-year-old defender Sepp van den Berg from PEC Zwolle and 16-year-old midfielder Harvey Elliott from Fulham.

They have also used academy players in cup games this season, with the likes of Curtis Jones and Neco Williams impressing during their 1-0 FA Cup third round win over rivals Everton earlier this month.

So far this month they have only made one signing – the addition of Takumi Minamino from RB Salzburg – but manager Jurgen Klopp said further deals would be unlikely.

"Every year we have the same situation. It is always tricky - we will probably not be too busy," said Klopp.

"We will see what happens, but it is not likely."

The Reds take on League One side Shrewsbury in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday before they look to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League to a massive 19 points when they face West Ham on Wednesday.

Layton Stewart shines as hat-trick steers Liverpool U18s to comfortable win

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 14:28

It was a comfortable afternoon for Liverpool U18s on Saturday, with the Reds’ exciting young striker Layton Stewart taking the chance to shine.


Liverpool U18s 4-0 Sunderland U18s

Premier League U18, Kirkby
January 25, 2020

Goals: Hill 8′, Stewart 37′, 52′, 90+1′

It was a clash of two teams on contrasting ends of the table, with Sunderland sat at the bottom after picking up just one point from 12 games, while the young Reds entered the clash in second.

Barry Lewtas’ side were on the hunt for their fifth successive win across all competitions and a win here would move them within three points of leaders Man City, with a game in hand.

Two changes from the side who secured a thrilling win over Stoke saw Conor Bradley start at right-back while Fidel O’Rourke made his return from injury to lead the line alongside Layton Stewart.

It was a forward combination which almost led to Liverpool’s first goal of the afternoon, with Stewart’s run in behind the defence splitting Sunderland open, but O’Rourke could not sort his feet out in time to turn his delivery home from close range.

But with the Reds dominating possession and territory, the next opportunity was not far away and Tom Hill, who made his senior debut against Aston Villa, was the key instigator with a confident drive into space ending with a drilled finish into the bottom corner.

Although sloppiness crept into their play following the goal, Liverpool would arrest back their control and double their lead after Steward lobbed the ‘keeper after finding himself on the end of Remi Savage’s ball over the top, with the defender’s quick thinking duly rewarded.

Lewtas’ side were quick out of the blocks after the interval, with Owen Beck, James Norris and Stewart at the heart of the Reds’ positive moves as they continued to combine well on the left.

And it was the latter who saw his pressure off the ball swiftly rewarded as he doubled-back to goal and was fed in by O’Rourke to notch his second goal of the afternoon.

It was a quiet afternoon for Jakub Ojrzynski in between the stick on just his second start since his return from an ankle injury, where the young Reds kept their second clean sheet from their last six games.

And while a plethora of chances went amiss, Stewart was on hand to end his afternoon on a high as he secured his hat-trick, and his 16th goal of the season, with a sumptuous finish in the top right corner from a tight angle on the opposite side of the box.

The scoreline could have ballooned further, only for a series of chances to go begging as the final touch and ball evaded Liverpool.

The result solidifies Liverpool’s position in second place and keeps them within striking distance of City, who they meet in late February.

TIA Man of the Match: Layton Stewart

Liverpool U18s: Ojrzynski; Bradley (Walls 80′), Quansah, Savage, Beck (Woltman 74′); Morton, Hill (Stephenson 84′), Norris, Balagizi; Stewart, O’Rourke

Match report: Stewart hits hat-trick as U18s ease past Sunderland

LiverpoolFC.TV - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 14:28

Liverpool U18s moved within three points of the top of the table by beating Sunderland 4-0 at the Academy on Saturday afternoon.

Barry Lewtas’ Reds were good value for a victory secured through a Tom Hill opener and an excellent hat-trick from Layton Stewart.

The result closed the gap on U18 Premier League North leaders Manchester City and Liverpool still have a game in hand to play.

The young Reds made an encouraging start on a cold day in Kirkby and might have taken the lead within two minutes of kick-off.

James Norris slid a pass into the left channel that invited Stewart to collect the ball and cross into the middle, where Fidel O’Rourke was unable to get enough on the finish to prod home.

But the breakthrough soon followed.

Indeed, the contest was just seven minutes old when Hill picked up the ball around 25 yards out, stepped forward into a shooting position and drilled a clinical low shot across goal and inside the left post for 1-0.

The strike stirred Sunderland and the visitors enjoyed an extended period of pressure, though without genuinely troubling Jakub Ojrzynski in the Liverpool net.

At the other end, only a last-ditch foul by opposition goalkeeper Jack Newman stopped O’Rourke from capitalising after nudging the ball around him outside the area.

Hill could not turn in a second from Norris’ cut-back and O’Rourke headed wide when the ball was swept back into the box – but the Reds would double the lead before the interval.

Remi Savage guided a pinpoint pass from a dead ball in his own half over the top and Stewart got in behind Jack Armstrong before craftily lifting a finish over Newman and back down across the line.

And Lewtas’ charges removed any threat of a comeback early in the second half.

Liverpool turned over possession deep in Sunderland territory and an exchange of passes between O’Rourke and Stewart allowed the latter to set himself and push a shot through a touch from the ‘keeper. It was Stewart’s 15th goal of the season.

There were few clear opportunities in the remainder of a clash that felt decided once the third went in, with neither side able to find the final touch or pass they needed.

Stewart had a chance to seal his hat-trick in the closing stages but, having moved in with intent from the right-hand side and created space, put too much power on his rising drive.

The No.9 was not to be denied, though.

A minute into stoppage time, Stewart broke into the left side of the box and drew out the goalkeeper before superbly sweeping the ball back over Newman and his recovering defenders into the far corner.

The Reds therefore comfortably secured their fourth consecutive league win and kept up their chase of Manchester City in U18 Premier League North.

Liverpool U18s: Ojrzynski, Bradley (Walls, 80), Beck (Woltman, 74), Quansah, Savage, Morton, Hill (Stephenson, 84), Balagizi, Stewart, O’Rourke, Norris.

Unused substitutes: Kelly, Mabaya.

Pupils celebrate Onside+ project success at Anfield

LiverpoolFC.TV - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 13:00

LFC Foundation invited participants from its Onside+ project to Anfield on Wednesday for a special recognition event.

Onside+ – which is part-funded by Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Unit – aims to address some of the social issues faced by young people today, including topics such as stereotypes and perceptions, mental health, and youth and gang crime throughout the local area, working in collaboration with Merseyside Police.

The project uses the power of the LFC badge to engage with local students, providing them with key skills, confidence and the resilience to overcome obstacles and choose the right pathways in life.

Pupils from Kirkby High School and All Saints Catholic High School were invited to the Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand at Anfield for the special event in celebration of their hard work and attentive attitude in the classroom so far this year.

Superintendent Mark Wiggins, from Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Unit, spoke to the youngsters – congratulating them on their successes to date – before the group took part in a networking event where pupils were given the opportunity to spend time with representatives from Merseyside Police and Merseyside’s Violence Reduction Unit.

The day ended with a tour of the stadium and a raffle, with prizes including LFC match shirts, signed player photos and a Champions League final winner’s medal replica.

Matt Parish, director of LFC Foundation, said: “Onside+ is a relatively new programme for us, yet we’re already seeing a real difference in the participants – so it’s fantastic to be able to reward their effort and progress so far with events like this.

“We’re really looking forward to seeing the young people continue to grow and develop their skills as the project continues.”

'I want to repay Klopp's trust' - Takumi Minamino reacts after PL debut

LiverpoolFC.TV - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 11:00

Jürgen Klopp's show of faith in Takumi Minamino has the Japan international extremely keen to repay his manager with good performances on the pitch.

Minamino made his Premier League debut at short notice in the win at Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday as he replaced the injured Sadio Mane just after the half-hour mark. 

It was his second appearance for Liverpool since arriving from Salzburg earlier this month, with the No.18 now keen to raise his levels. 

"I feel the manager's trust in me, so I really want to repay him," Minamino said following the Wolves victory. "Personally, I'm not satisfied with my own performance [at Wolves], so I want to meet the expectations of the people who support me.

"I was mentally ready to go and all I was thinking was how to fit into the team smoothly and get into the game.

"I don't feel any pressure. I'm not sure how much expectation has been put on me, but I have nothing to lose."

Minimino's pair of outings have seen him display the kind of versatility Klopp welcomed shortly after his transfer was completed. 

The 25-year-old played in a central role during his bow for the Reds against Everton in the FA Cup before operating on the left and then right flank at Wolves. 

[embedded content]

"I can play on either side, but it was more about how to link up with the full-backs," Minamino continued. "If we can build a better understanding of each other, I'm sure it will get even better.

"They scored an equaliser after I came on, so I was desperate to contribute to the winning goal in any way I can. 

"After we scored the second goal, I made sure to keep it simple and defend solidly."

Liverpool target Fabian Ruiz after Isco bid rejected

HEAD NEWS - Sat, 01/25/2020 - 10:12

Liverpool are set to target Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz after seeing a £47 million bid for Isco rejected by Real Madrid.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is keen to bolster his midfield in the January transfer window as Liverpool chase Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup glory.

According to El Desmarque, Isco is the club's first choice target but Madrid's reluctance to accept a sizeable bid for the midfielder has seen them turn their attentions elsewhere.

The Reds are more hopeful of landing Ruiz, who has emerged as one of Europe's best midfielders since joining Napoli from Real Betis in 2018.

However, Liverpool are likely to have to pay more than the £47m they bid for Isco if they are to be successful in their pursuit of the 23-year-old.
