The Liverpool boss ensured his side maintained their flawless start to the top-flight campaign by presiding over victories against Newcastle United, Chelsea and Sheffield United.

It's the second month running Klopp has been awarded the prize after also claiming it for August.

In clinching September's edition, the German saw off competition from Eddie Howe (Bournemouth), Frank Lampard (Chelsea) and Brendan Rodgers (Leicester City).

Klopp has now won the Premier League Manager of the Month award on five occasions, having also taken it in September 2016, December 2018 and March 2019, in addition to this season's two accolades.

Liverpool can solve Jadon Sancho and Kai Havertz transfer jigsaw

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 10/11/2019 - 09:18

Jadon Sancho 2020. It could be on.

Since winning the Champions League back in June, there’s been a clamour amongst Reds fans to see the club secure a big-name signing.

From Kylian Mbappe to Jadon Sancho to German youngster Kai Havertz, they’ve all been in the conversation.

A move though for England international Sancho, could make sense, according to German football expert Kevin Hatchard.

Following a frugal summer with Liverpool only parting with cash for youngsters Sepp van den Berg and Harvey Elliott, along with the free transfers of Adrian and Andy Lonergan, Liverpool could look to spend big next summer.

Sancho is a player who’s been linked with a move to Anfield, having impressed during his stint in the Bundesliga as well as with Gareth Southgate’s England squad.

And while Havertz has also been rumoured to be interesting the powers that be at Liverpool in the past, a move for Sancho could unravel somewhat of a transfer-deadlock in Jurgen Klopp’s homeland.

20-year-old Havertz is expected to move on at the end of the current season, having helped Bayer Leverkusen into this season’s Champions League, as Hatchard explains.

"He’s one of the most exciting players, potentially of his generation, not just in Germany but in European football,” he said on a special Blood Red podcast to be released on Saturday (October 12).

"He scored lots and lots of goals in the Bundesliga last season, he scores all types of goals, he has a great awareness of what’s around him.

"All of the top clubs would want to sign him, we’re talking about definitely Bayern, who have been very strongly interested in him for quite some time.

"There’s been a lot of talk in Germany, this season, about Borussia Dortmund being interested because his best friend, Julian Brandt, already plays for Dortmund. I imagine there have been a few comments and conversations between the two of them.

"Marco Reus has said he’s a player Dortmund would love to sign, which is probably something he shouldn’t have said, but there we go and there has been some talk that if Jadon Sancho were to leave Dortmund in the summer for huge money a lot of that money could be diverted to signing Havertz."

Hatchard added: "I had been told a while ago was he wasn’t necessarily a player on Liverpool’s list right now but if you look at his continued development it’ll be interesting to see if Liverpool would go for him.”

So while a move for Havertz may not quite be on the cards, Dortmund, should their interest in the youngster be concrete, could need to free up some cash to land him.

Which is where a move for Sancho could come into play and is something Hatchard says could make sense for all parties - despite only signing a new £190,000-a-week contract in August.

"Jadon Sancho is a player Dortmund had no interest in whatsoever in selling in the summer just gone,” he said. “That was quite clear from the get-go.

"All the links with Manchester United, although United were very much interested in him, they were wide of the mark as he was never going to go in the summer.

"That situation is not necessarily going to be the same next summer.”

He continued: "Hans-Joachim Watzke, who’s the CEO, has already indicated that they don’t think they can keep Sancho in the long-term.

"So, if the money was right and Sancho was willing to come back to the Premier League I would expect Liverpool to be in that market.”

The move may not be plain sailing for the Reds though as the winger would be after certain guarantees over his place in the starting XI.

"The tricky thing is going to be is how do you convince him that he would have a genuine chance of being in the Liverpool line-up because Mo Salah operates in the position he does,” said Hatchard.

"Sancho is very much on the right of a front three, so that would be a big decision for him to make.

"This is the tricky thing for Liverpool, because that front three is so clearly defined and so consistent and so durable, they’ve missed so few games between them how do you then convince a top, top player they’ve got a chance of being involved.

"That’s maybe where Jurgen Klopp comes in with his ability to talk players round and persuade players that that’s the move for them.

"Financially I think Liverpool could be in the mix for him, it’ll be interesting to see if that’s a move they pursuit.

"It may happen next summer, it may happen the summer after that it might depend on how close Dortmund come to winning the Meisterschale this season.

"I think at some stage we’ll see Jadon Sancho back in England."

The stats that reveal Sadio Mane's latest step up

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 10/11/2019 - 08:00

Sadio Mane has upped his numbers practically across the board in the Premier League this season, according to Opta's statistics from the first eight games.

A winner of the Golden Boot in 2018-19, alongside Liverpool teammate Mohamed Salah and Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the No.10 has carried his stellar form into the new campaign.

Mane’s first-half breakthrough against Leicester City at Anfield last weekend was his 50th goal in the division for the Reds on his 100th Premier League appearance.

[embedded content]

The Senegal international has already scored five times in eight league outings this season, increasing his strike rate from 0.6 goals per 90 minutes to 0.7 so far this term.

He has scored a goal every 122 minutes, reduced from one every 140 minutes across the previous campaign, and improved his shot conversion rate to 26.3 per cent.

Mane’s wider influence on this Reds team is reflected in his chance creation, too.

The 27-year-old has fashioned 13 already this season at a rate of 1.9 per 90 minutes – a jump from his figure of 1.3 per 90 during 2018-19.

And just for good measure, Mane has posted improved figures for duels contested (15.4 per 90 minutes), duels won (6.4 per 90 minutes) and dribble success rate (47.6 per cent).

For a comprehensive analysis of the stats behind Liverpool’s 100 per cent start to the season, watch The Premier League Review Show at 5pm and 10pm BST on LFCTV and throughout the weekend.

Internationals: Mixed results for Reds in action

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 10/10/2019 - 21:51

It was a mixed evening of results for Liverpool's international players on Thursday.

After returning to the Reds team for last weekend’s win over Leicester City, centre-back Dejan Lovren played the whole game as Croatia defeated Hungary 3-0 in their Euro 2020 qualifier.

The victory in Split maintained the 2018 World Cup finalists’ command of Group E, which they now lead by three points.

Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum also featured for 90 minutes as the Netherlands came from a goal down to register a 3-1 win at home to Northern Ireland in their qualifying tie.

The result moved the Dutch to the summit of Group C with three fixtures remaining.

But there was disappointment for Andy Robertson and Scotland, who were beaten 4-0 by Russia in Moscow and therefore cannot qualify for the tournament.

Elsewhere in Group I, Divock Origi was an unused substitute for leaders Belgium as they eased to a 9-0 rout of San Marino in Brussels, which assured their place at next year’s finals.

And Caoimhin Kelleher kept a clean sheet for Republic of Ireland U21s against Italy as their U21 Championship qualifier in Dublin ended goalless.

High lines and the ‘character of Jurgen’ – The tactical tweaks behind Liverpool’s perfect start

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 10/10/2019 - 18:00

Liverpool are eight wins from eight at the second interval of the Premier League campaign, and some key tactical tweaks have aided this perfect run.


When comparing Liverpool’s tactics this season to last, there are far more similarities than there are differences.

The 4-3-3 remains, mostly with one deep-lying midfielder and two No. 8s.

The full-backs remain a creative outlet, and midfield the engine room. The front three remain among the best in the world in their respective roles.

Any tactical changes have been subtle. Managers and coaches will often introduce new ideas simply to keep their players’ minds fresh and to keep them thinking about the game, even if it looks like the previous plan doesn’t need tweaking at all.

Jurgen Klopp has tried a few new things this season.

Some confirmed, others unconfirmed; some obvious, some less so, which will keep his own players on the ball while also causing problems for the opposition.

It’s quite handy, that one of Liverpool’s main tactical changes of the season so far came in the most recent game against Leicester.

Leicester City Shuffle

The familiar front-three lineup for Liverpool is Sadio Mane on the left, Roberto Firmino through the middle and Mohamed Salah on the right.

As is well-documented by now, Firmino is a key part of Klopp’s tactics when operating in this role as the central forward.

He often drops deep as Mane and Salah bomb forward ahead of him, and the three of them work to drag the opposition defence out and wide, before tearing them apart with pace and quick passing.

The full-backs also do their bit, bombing forward on their wing as Salah and Mane act as inside forwards.

This all changed against Brendan Rodgers’ side, with Firmino drifting slightly left, Mane right and Salah through the middle.

Liverpool tactics vs Brendan Rodgers Leicester

Klopp explained that this was merely to unsettle the opposition who will have trained to play against the usual order of the front three.

But it might also have been to protect his side against Leicester’s own version of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson: Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell.

These two full-backs are among the most threatening in the league in these positions. Pereira already has two goals this season, which tells us all we need to know about his attacking intent, while Chilwell is so good he was once a Liverpool transfer target.

Firmino and Mane are better defenders than Salah, which isn’t a slight on the Egyptian’s effort which is second to none, he’s just better utilised in attacking areas.

The duo have better defensive engines, for want of a more technical phrase, and this was shown when Mane made two excellent tackles on Chilwell in the first half.

But towards the end of the half, Klopp changed things up. It meant Chilwell had more freedom down Liverpool’s right, but it also led to the first goal.

It was difficult to notice the change as Liverpool had to defend a number of set-pieces around this time, and that naturally leads to mixups in personal and positions, but by the time of the first goal Firmino was back in the centre, and Mane on the left with Salah right.

It paid dividends in attack, when James Milner’s raking pass sprung Mane down the left flank to give them the lead before half-time, after which they changed back to the order which started the game.

As this is Klopp’s Liverpool, at Anfield, it’s unlikely this change was focused solely on stopping the opposition.

The manager isn’t afraid to give credit to opposing sides where it is due, whether this be in one of his press conferences, or the respect shown in the way he sets his teams up.

“We obviously changed formation a little bit,” said Klopp.

“We brought Mo into the centre, Sadio and Bobby more into the No. 10 position [against] an opponent who could train a full week to prepare for us.”

Incidentally, this confirms the idea that Klopp doesn’t always view his wide players as wingers, rather inside forwards or No. 10s.

But going back to the main point, as well as showing respect for an opponent, leaving Salah up top with the potential for Mane to break alongside him posed a threat to the Leicester centre-backs while their full-backs were high up the pitch.

Salah likes the right side of the pitch even if he’s playing centrally (as shown in the touch map below), but luckily for Leicester, their left centre-back, Caglar Soyuncu, is pretty good.

Quick for his size, strong in the challenge, and decent enough on the ball, too.

Mane and Milner took the headlines—rightly so—but Salah still emerged from the game with the highest open play xG in the team.

Leicester’s xG was just 0.1 according to Understat, and Liverpool’s 3.75.

The Reds certainly didn’t scrape this win. A worry for Leicester is that they have the second lowest xG in the league, just ahead of Newcastle, and are over-performing their xG by almost six goals…

High Lines

As has been the case throughout his career so far, Liverpool’s assistant manager Pep Lijnders is always good for some tactical explanations.

At the beginning of the season there were suggestions that Liverpool were playing with a higher defensive line.

This was denied by Klopp, but it was Lijnders who eventually provided more clarity on the subject as he took on media duties ahead of a League Cup game against MK Dons.

When asked if Liverpool have improved on last season, the Dutchman gave an answer filled with tactical information.

“For me, we are much further than we were last year at the same time,” said Lijnders.

“We can dictate play much better, our last line feels much more comfortable being higher, we are much more front-footed defensively and, of course, we can control games and spaces better.

“The team absorbed the way we want to play, it became a natural skill of theirs.”

[embedded content]

Saying the players are more comfortable playing a high line isn’t confirmation that it is higher, but is at least an indication they are willing to do so more often.

The high line could also be caused by the new laws around goal-kicks, which means defenders can now receive the ball in the box.

The opposition press still has to wait on the edge of the area, but once the goal-kick is taken they can move in.

This naturally moves the whole team slightly further up the pitch than when defenders had to receive goal-kicks outside the box.

The assistant manager also indicated that it has become second nature for the Liverpool players to play the way Klopp wants them to.

There were no new outfield first-team signings who needed to adapt to these methods. Everyone knows their role, and the roles of others.

Full-Backs – the Key to a Team’s Tactics

For those looking in from the outside, full-backs often provide the best clues as to how a team is setting up tactically, and Liverpool’s appear to be set to all-out attack.

This was epitomised by the goal against Salzburg scored by Robertson and assisted by Alexander-Arnold.

Many teams have their full-backs alternating in attack—when one goes forward, the other stays back—but it appears that Liverpool now want both bombing forward.

Again, it was Lijnders confirmed that what we’d been seeing on the pitch was something they’d been working on.

“I think our team became better at dictating the play and speeding up the positional play,” he said.

“Finding the right players between the lines, and from there, being really creative.

“We made some adjustments in that by having our full-backs more involved in the attack, by having our midfielders more in control.”

Klopp is rightly guarded about tactics, and keeps his cards close to his chest, and in truth Lijnders hasn’t really given too much away there either.

He just approaches the subject of tactics more directly, often without being asked about them specifically.

So we’ll let Lijnders have the final word on Liverpool’s tactics so far this season.

“The better you attack, the easier it becomes to play good counter-pressing, which is, of course, our identity,” he explained.

“The character of the team is mainly developed by the character of the coach. It’s about the character of Jurgen.”

Pogba doubt for clash & Bologna chief turns down Reds – Thursday’s Liverpool FC News Roundup

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 10/10/2019 - 16:35

We round up the latest Liverpool news and transfer rumours on Thursday, as Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino lock horns at international level.


Today’s Main Headlines Rodri Calls Reds the “Best in Europe”

Liverpool find themselves eight points clear of Man City in the Premier League title race, as well as the reigning European champions.

It is, therefore, no great surprise that City midfielder Rodri sees the Reds as a major threat.

Speaking to ESPN, he admitted Liverpool are a bigger rival to City than United now, saying they are Europe’s leading team currently:

“The team to beat is Liverpool now and that has been seen the last two seasons.

“They are the champions of Europe so everyone wants to beat them, not just us.

“They’re a great team, they have improved a lot of things, they’re a very good team, and they’re the best team in England and in Europe.”

City fans are going to love that, aren’t they?

Pogba Could Miss Liverpool Clash

Liverpool head to Old Trafford on October 20, looking for their first win away to Man United since 2014.

It is a wonderful opportunity for the Reds to register a joint-record 18th Premier League victory in a row, especially if Paul Pogba is missing.

According to L’Equipe, via Sport Witness, the enigmatic Frenchman could be out with a cracked toe, which threatens to rule him out of action for two to three weeks.

United already have a host of injury problems, and for all his faults as a player, Pogba is one of their biggest talents.

Should he not be fit in time, Jurgen Klopp‘s men will further believe they can pick up a significant victory.

Bologna Commercial Director Turned Down Liverpool

Most people would jump at the chance to have a job at Liverpool these days, but that wasn’t the case with Christoph Winterling.

He has turned down a role as commercial and marketing director—the position he currently fills at Serie A side Bologna.

That’s according to Corriere dello Sport, again via Sport Witness, who claim he is happy where he is, both in terms of the club and the city.

Winterling would reportedly have been in charge of a €200 million budget at Liverpool, but that wasn’t enough to lure him from a role described as “equally important” to the one at Anfield.

Can “Not Happy” at Juventus

It takes a brave man to choose to leave Liverpool when Klopp is manager, but Emre Can did just that.

The German opted to join Juventus instead of remaining at Anfield in the summer of 2018, but all is not well with him.

Can admits he is frustrated at a lack of playing time in Turin—he has played just 79 minutes in the league this season, with Maurizio Sarri opting for other midfielders ahead of him.

“I’m not happy [at Juve] right now,” said Can, following Germany’s 2-2 draw with Argentina on Wednesday.

“I’m not playing much at the moment. I played a lot last season, especially in important matches, for Juventus, and I also played well.

“I haven’t had a chance this season but now I think that, when I return to the club, I’ll have a shot at playing again.”

A divisive figure during his time at Liverpool, part of him must regret leaving when he did.

Star-Studded Seán Cox Event Confirmed

Seán Cox continues to recover from life-changing injuries suffered at the hands of Roma fans in April 2018, making positive progress in recent months.

A fundraising night for the lifelong Liverpool supporter has been confirmed, with some of the country’s most well-known standup comedians taking part.

Fellow Reds fan John Bishop will host the event at Dublin’s 3Arena on Friday January 10, 2020, which will also see the likes of Michael McIntyre and Dara O’Briain perform.

The proceeds will go The Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust.
