Liverpool have received a double injury boost with the return of Alisson Becker and Joel Matip to training ahead of Sunday's game at Manchester United.

Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson has been out of action since being forced off in the 39th minute of the 4-1 win over Norwich at Anfield on the opening day of the season.

The calf injury has seen summer signing Adrian deputise, with Jurgen Klopp's side currently unbeaten in the league heading into the Old Trafford encounter, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Alisson returned to full training at Melwood on Tuesday, alongside defender Matip who has also recovered from a knock.

Matip picked up the injury during the 1-0 win at Sheffield United on September 28 and missed Liverpool's meetings with FC Salzburg and Leicester City.

Joel Matip resumed training at Melwood on Tuesday morning after recovering from a knock sustained prior to the international break.

The issue, picked up during the 1-0 win at Sheffield United on September 28, ruled the centre-back out of the Reds' meetings with FC Salzburg and Leicester City.

However, Matip took part in this morning's session alongside his teammates as Jürgen Klopp's side get ready for Sunday's trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United.

Alisson Becker also trained with Liverpool's goalkeepers as he closes in on a return to action following a calf injury.

Ben Woodburn: I'll keep working hard for my Liverpool dream

LiverpoolFC TV - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 13:10
Ben Woodburn believes his loan spell at Oxford United is proving a positive step towards his long-term ambition of becoming a regular in Liverpool’s first-team squad.

Ben Woodburn offers insight to progression, best position & Liverpool future

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 12:35

Ben Woodburn is currently enjoying a productive loan spell in League One with Oxford, but his future is still all about Liverpool in his own eyes.


The young attacker turns 20 today, Tuesday, marking the end of him being often referred to as a ‘talented teenager’ or similar.

He made history by becoming the Reds’ youngest-ever goalscorer, but since then has struggled to really assert his quality and show his best form on a regular basis, be it with Liverpool or elsewhere.

Because he made an impact so early, the tendency is to think of him as having stalled—but he feels there’s lots more to come and that having to be patient was an inevitability as Liverpool impressed, as he told Mail Online’s Joe Bernstein.

“I feel proud about that goal and becoming Liverpool’s youngest scorer but I don’t want people to just remember me for that moment. I want to push on and do other things, and bigger things,” he said.

“I had to accept at Liverpool with players like Salah and Sadio Mane, you are likely to be dropping down to the Under 23s. I tried to push on in my own way.

Last season, Woodburn went on loan to Sheffield United in a bid to earn regular senior game time, but after a decent start quickly found himself out of the picture. That move was cut short halfway through the season, but matters didn’t improve overly once back at Liverpool.

Now having gone to Oxford, one tier down, he is again showing his talents—at least until a broken foot, sustained last week, curtailed that progress for now.

Time remains on his side, though, and he points to other players who have struggled to make the grade at the same age—before going on to achieve great things just a few years later.

“Last season was tough. I wasn’t playing at Sheffield United but couldn’t complain because they were doing really well and won promotion

“I have learned so much at Oxford this season, knowing I am able to play 90 minutes and keep fighting for the team. I have taken a lot of kicks and heavy tackles and shown I’m not lightweight.

“I feel like I have had so much experience and yet I am still only young and learning. Watching someone like Serge Gnabry develop is a big help.

“I saw his four goals for Bayern Munich against Tottenham in the Champions League. When he was 20, he couldn’t get a game on loan at West Brom.

“He has shown you can push through if you keep working hard and hopefully I can do something like he’s done.”

A goalscorer at full international level already with Wales, and a player of enormous promise for several seasons already, Woodburn has his eyes on the main prize: an eventual return to first-team football at Anfield.

Interestingly, though, while he made his breakthrough as a forward, he has since been used in a variety of roles and seems to intimate that his best traits lend him to playing a support act, rather than being a main source of goals.

“I think my eyes are always going to be set on playing at Liverpool. That is my main goal, that is who I grew up supporting and have been for years.

“I’d probably say I am more of a creator but I think I will score goals as well. I’ve hit the post four or five times, I know they will go in if I carry on getting in the right positions.

“I’ve been doing the right amount of gym work. Glutes, hamstrings, calves. You don’t want to be a body builder but you do want to be strong, fast and nimble.”

A return to full fitness and a season of regular action behind him, and Woodburn’s early 20s could yet prove the making of him.

As he rightly points out, 23-year-old compatriot Harry Wilson is only just now making his own mark in the Premier League, so time remains on Woodburn’s side and at Liverpool, at least, there is a manager who will always give talented youths—even if they are no longer teens—the chance they deserve.

'A magical moment' - how Jürgen Klopp joined Common Goal

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 12:00

Jürgen Klopp had an announcement to make on stage at the Teatro alla Scala opera house in Milan last month.

The Liverpool manager was there to receive The Best FIFA Men’s Coach award in recognition of his success with the club during the 2018-19 season.

But the German also used his own moment of personal glory to express something he believed more worthy of the global audience’s attention.

From that day forward he would be a part of Common Goal, the movement which has seen a host of famous football figures pledge one per cent of their income to non-governmental organisations which harness the power of the game to enact positive societal change across the world.

“I want to use this stage to say one thing: this is an individual prize, I don’t 100 per cent understand individual prizes but I get it because I’m here for a lot of people,” Klopp stated.

“We are all on the really good side of life obviously, that’s why we are here. But there are people out there that have not exactly the same situation and I’m really proud and happy that I can announce from today on I’m a member of the Common Goal family.”

Our boss ❤️ #TheBest | #FIFAFootballAwards https://t.co/vwo5P0hURm

— LFC (Liverpool FC) 23rd Sep 19:02

The Liverpool boss rubbed shoulders with many of football’s biggest stars at La Scala, but his meeting with a man with whom he shares a nationality and a Christian name, two hours before the ceremony began, was perhaps more significant.

“It was a conversation we had before,” says Common Goal CEO Jürgen Griesbeck over the phone from the organisation’s headquarters in Berlin.

“We had come together in terms of Jürgen joining Common Goal, and were a month or two away from the fact, but we obviously didn’t know if he would win the award and have the opportunity of an acceptance speech.

“We met for the first time on the day, two hours or so before the event. At the end of the day, Jürgen is very spontaneous – it needs to flow, it needs to fit in with what he feels like saying. So it was uncertain until the last moments, but then he felt like saying it, and we were very proud in that moment.”

Willkommen Jürgen Klopp!! #TheBest FIFA Men's Coach☑️ New #CommonGoal Member☑️ https://t.co/mifD9KjDmd

— CommonGoalOrg (Common Goal) 23rd Sep 18:55

Griesbeck has been dedicated to using football as a tool for wider good for 25 years now, ever since the 1994 murder of Colombia international defender Andres Escobar, whom he knew personally.

As a young PhD student living in Medellin, he immediately quit his studies and started a youth project titled Football For Peace, aimed at stemming the violence which was claiming 5,000 young lives a year in the city at the time.

Over the years, his projects multiplied and diversified, leading to him forming streetfootballworld – now a network of more than 130 organisations, including Common Goal – in 2002.

Common Goal has gone from strength to strength since it was given life by co-founders Griesbeck and Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata in August 2017, with star players from both men’s and women’s football, managers, UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin and even an entire club – FC Nordsjaelland of the Danish Superliga – making the one per cent pledge during that time.

Even so, welcoming the involvement of the man who leads the reigning European champions, and someone whose personality and sense of humour have always enabled him to transcend tribal rivalries, is a significant coup for the project – as evidenced by the fact Common Goal’s website crashed on the night the announcement was made.

“We are incubating Common Goal out of Germany, and we have followed Jürgen for many years,” continues Griesbeck, who grew up just a few kilometres away from Klopp’s hometown of Glatten in south-west Germany.

“We’re at the beginning now, we’ve just completed the first two years, and it’s very much about the leadership and inspiration provided by those who have joined the movement. The financial contribution almost becomes of secondary importance; it’s part of the mechanism obviously but the real game-changer will only be when we get to more of a systemic embedding of the one per cent within the industry.

“When Jürgen moved to Liverpool it was so big for us as Germans, having seen him at FSV Mainz and Borussia Dortmund. It was probably the club where he needed to go, their values aligned and that personality of his would be able to unleash itself in that environment.

“We have always been fans of his, not just because of how he has his teams play football, but because of who he is as a person. That was a conscious thing, and we have been working on it for quite some time with his representatives, who also represent one of the other coaches we work with, Julian Nagelsmann.

“So that was the effort on our side, to tell them that, when the moment is right, Jürgen would be a very good fit for Common Goal in this early stage, because of the values he stands for.

“And on the other side I think Jürgen was following Mats Hummels and Shinji Kagawa joining, former players of his at Dortmund. I think from early on he felt attracted by the idea but the everyday workload at LFC didn’t allow it to happen. It happened when it needed to happen and I think it was quite a magical moment when he used that stage to do exactly what I mentioned – inspire and lead. It was awesome.”

“We should not forget what it was like when we had real problems. This bubble we live in is not the real world.” J… https://t.co/Cltb7BzOH4

— TPT_Global (Players' Tribune Global) 24th Sep 11:30

Common Goal members have been making some serious waves in the world of football of late.

Megan Rapinoe captained the USA to victory and won the Golden Boot at the 2019 Women’s World Cup; Nagelsmann’s Leipzig are just two points off the top of the Bundesliga; and Serge Gnabry recently scored four of Bayern Munich’s goals in their 7-2 Champions League win at Tottenham Hotspur.

Griesbeck described those successes as ‘a manifestation of the fact that performance on the field and purpose off the field can really go nicely together’.

The funds raised by Common Goal go towards causes as varied as conflict resolution in Colombia and raising awareness of HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, and are also being put to good use in the UK, where a number of organisations are linked to streetfootballworld, including Street League, a sport for employment charity whose Liverpool branch operates out of Anfield Sports and Community Centre.

“This is only the start,” remarked Klopp after Liverpool’s European Cup triumph in Madrid four months ago, and like his namesake, Griesbeck has some big goals for the future, and a sense that the achievements of the past few years are merely a beginning.

“It’s all a development over time,” concludes the 54-year-old, who is currently enjoying seeing the club he supports, SC Freiburg, sit fourth in the Bundesliga.

“We are not into developing organisations or building important brands or earning a lot more money, what drives us has always been, and continues to be, impact. We started to get a good understanding in Colombia of how football can generate massive change in a community, and our goal became the attempt to build a sustainable and resilient bridge between the commercial development of football and football as a driver for social change.

“I don’t know if this project is the most impactful so far, it’s just the next step we need to do in order to get to where we want to be, which is maximising the power of football for good.”

'PL title barometer of success for Liverpool'

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 10:43
Watch Manchester United vs Liverpool live on Super Sunday from 3pm on Sky Sports Premier League; Kick-off 4.30pm By PA Media

Last Updated: 15/10/19 3:23pm

Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore believes adding a long-awaited league title to their Champions League triumph is the "barometer of success" by which the club is judged.

A sixth European Cup was secured in June, less than a month after the Reds were narrowly pipped by Manchester City to the Premier League title by a point, despite a tally that would have guaranteed top spot in 25 of the last 27 seasons.

The league resumes this weekend with Jurgen Klopp's side - in possession of the only 100 per cent record in England's top four divisions - eight points clear of City and set for another title challenge, ahead of their visit to Old Trafford to face rivals Manchester United, live on Super Sunday.

Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore Liverpool chief executive Peter Moore

"I think that is what our fans want," Moore said. "We were so close last year, 97 points, and in any other year we would have won it.

"But the club goes on and I think that [a league title], for many of our fans, would sit alongside our Champions League triumph as the barometer of success.

"As a club off the pitch we have a set of visions, missions and values and at the top of that sits supporting the team to 'win trophies'. Two words, because ultimately that is what our fans want and that is what we need to deliver."

City have been the domestic benchmark for their rivals, with four Premier League titles, four League Cups and two FA Cups since 2011. However, Moore insists Liverpool are following their own path.

0:57 Liverpool are already too far ahead of Manchester City to lose the Premier League title this season, according to former Reds goalkeeper Chris Kirkland Liverpool are already too far ahead of Manchester City to lose the Premier League title this season, according to former Reds goalkeeper Chris Kirkland

"We feel good about the club in its entirety and we don't compare ourselves with any other football club," he added.

"What Liverpool had to do was bring in a world-class manager, which we have, bring in a world-class squad, which we have, play exciting football, bring in players that are going to draw crowds no matter where they go - we've done that - build financial security at the club, we've done that.

"It all sets us up for success going forward. It is not a question of us comparing ourselves versus another club."

Fenway Sports Group

Exactly nine years ago, Fenway Sports Group - then New England Sports Ventures - completed their £300m purchase of the club. Their first job was paying off the £237m owed to major creditors Royal Bank of Scotland - ruling out any threat of the club's holding company being put into administration.

They inherited a club, unthinkably, in the Premier League's bottom three with six points from their opening seven matches during the short-lived reign of Roy Hodgson.

Sustained investment in the squad and infrastructure has elevated the American group to the highest point of their ownership, with the club posting £125m record profits - re-invested back into the squad even before the financial results were announced in February - winning the Champions League and starting this season brilliantly.

It has not all been plain sailing with walk-out protests over ticket-price rises in 2016 and a recent issue over the failed attempt to trademark the word 'Liverpool', but on-field success has appeased fans.

"From a prestige perspective it [the Champions League victory] kind of gets us back to where we once were in what we liked to call 'European royalty', so the impact is massive," said Moore. "When we look at the health of the club our revenues have doubled in the last five years and been reinvested back into the squad. We have steadied the ship from some dark days nine years ago.

"We take great pride in our business model: a self-sustaining football club. Simply, you drive revenues as best you can to invest on the pitch and that investment on the pitch pays off and global sponsors and advertisers want to be a part of that.

"They continue to give the football club revenue which will again drive investment on the pitch and we win more games. It is a virtuous cycle and that is the modern business model for high-performing football clubs: invest, invest, invest for success.

"Yes, we had that headline, £125m, but all of that money, by the time we had announced that, had been reinvested in players like Virgil van Dijk, Alisson Becker, Naby Keita and Fabinho. But the club is in fine shape financially.

"I think, as you saw from Jurgen's comments, he has the squad he likes and we have locked this squad up on long-term contracts, which is important. He has built the chemistry and these players are content, motivated and excited to win - not just for Jurgen and the coaching staff but for the people of Liverpool and broader global fanbase."

Trent Alexander-Arnold: Setbacks made us a better side

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 10/15/2019 - 08:00

Liverpool have become a stronger side as a result of their setbacks, according to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The right-back believes the current crop of Reds players have used lows in their careers, whether personal or collective, as the catalyst to achieve success.

He points to the Champions League final defeat in 2018 as the chief example; a year after losing that match to Real Madrid in Kiev, Jürgen Klopp’s team returned to lift the trophy in Madrid while simultaneously collecting 97 points in the Premier League.

Liverpool will aim to utilise that character trait again this season, after missing out on the title so narrowly last term.

“The players that we have in our side have all had failures before, we’ve all had setbacks and knockbacks,” Alexander-Arnold told Premier League Productions.

“We’ve really bounced back from there and got to where we are now and where we are as a team. The biggest example of that is probably the fact that we lost the Champions League final the season before and were able to use that as motivation to get back there and win it the next season.

“It’s something a lot of teams aren’t capable of, but we’ve showed that we are and we’re able to get better from disappointment.”

The Reds have, so far, delivered the perfect response to their Premier League frustration last season.

Alexander-Arnold and co have won each of their eight games, most recently coming through a serious examination against Leicester City at Anfield with three points.

And the resumption of club football after the international break brings one of the highlights of the fixture calendar as Liverpool travel to Old Trafford.

“Traditionally and historically, the Man United-Liverpool game is always massive,” said Alexander-Arnold. “It’s one of the biggest games of the season and they’re a top side as well.

“It’s always going to be a big game and a big occasion because both teams want to win it so much.”
