Miles travelled and minutes played by Liverpool players on international duty

ThisIsAnfield.com - Wed, 10/16/2019 - 14:32

For two weeks, Melwood has been a place of quiet: a few non-internationals, a handful of youngsters and Jurgen Klopp‘s coaching crew planning their attack on Man United. But around the rest of the world, Liverpool’s players have been busy.


With the qualifiers, friendlies and other international games now over and done with, the likes of Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino and Co. will all be back in training with Liverpool within a day, if they aren’t already.

It doesn’t leave a huge amount of time to prepare for the Premier League trip to Old Trafford, but Klopp will be pleased that no Reds appear to have picked up injuries during domestic action’s two-week hiatus.

But avoiding injuries are only one part of the issue: fatigue sets in to players for a number of reasons, game time and travel being two prominent ones.

So who travelled furthest, and played the most, for Liverpool in this international break? The first table below shows the breakdown by miles (as posted by one helpful Reddit user); the second shows those who played no match minutes at all.

Without question, the most affected player from the international break is key forward Roberto Firmino: he travelled the joint-furthest and played a significant part in both matches, with Sadio Mane playing the full 90 in just one game at the same location, Singapore.

Fabinho, frustratingly from his perspective, only managed a brief cameo once after such a long journey—but for Liverpool, the good news is that Brazil finished their fixtures early and both players should have returned midweek. Senegal only had one game, so Mane, too, would not have been delayed in getting back to Melwood.

With the demands placed on Liverpool’s full-backs, it’s perhaps as well that Trent Alexander-Arnold didn’t feature once for England, given his partner in crime on the opposite flank, Andy Robertson, didn’t miss a minute for Scotland.

Divock Origi‘s sharpness won’t have been helped by long trips without any involvement, but Dejan Lovren—after playing once against Leicester before the break—has now played three games in two weeks, a nice step-up in involvement.

The Reds’ Dutch duo had the mixed bag of full involvement but relatively short-haul flights, while none of the youngsters are likely to feature against Man United in any case. Curtis Jones started once and came on as sub once for England U19s, but at the time of writing there is no record of his game time off the bench.

Perhaps the key table for Jurgen Klopp and his decisions on team news, though, is the second—and the number of players who could be fresh for the trip to Man United.

Mo Salah being excused from duty, Alisson‘s final stages of injury recovery and the non-involvement for his nation of Joel Matip gives three key pillars of the team the chance to be fit, fresh and ready for a massive game.

Add in that there is every possibility that at least one of James Milner or Naby Keita start in midfield, and the Reds can count themselves reasonably well-off for senior players being ready and rested ahead of this fixture.

It’s more than likely in midfield where the boss will once again have a big decision to make as far as the starting lineup goes, but the relative lack of action at full-back, for the alternative attackers off the bench and for several key starters down the spine all means Liverpool should be able to play at full power and intensity at Old Trafford.

And that’s a difficult prospect to stop at the best of times, let alone when we’re top, have a perfect record and are chasing victory to equal another pair of league records.

Мур: "Завоевание титула стало бы барометром успеха "Ливерпуля"

Premiership.ru - Wed, 10/16/2019 - 14:00

Питер Мур Исполнительный директор "Ливерпуля" Питер Мур считает, что завоевание титула Премьер-Лиги в этом сезоне стало бы "барометром успеха" для мерсисайдского клуба.

Подопечные Юргена Клоппа блестяще провели прошлый сезон, обновив рекорд своего клуба по количеству набранных очков в Премьер-Лиге. Однако титул все равно достался "Манчестер Сити".

То разочарование "Ливерпуль" скрасил победой в Лиге Чемпионов, и теперь Мур жаждет закрепить этот успех титулом.

"Думаю, титул — это то, чего хотят наши фанаты. Мы были так близки в прошлом году, набрав 97 очков, и в любой другой год мы стали бы чемпионами".

"Однако клуб продолжает двигаться вперед, и я думаю, что для многих наших фанатов завоевание титула после триумфа в Лиге Чемпионов стало бы барометром успеха".

"У клуба есть много задач за пределами поля, но прежде всего мы должны обеспечить поддержку команде для завоевания трофеев. "Выигрывать трофеи" — это главные слова для наших фанатов, и мы должны дать им это", — цитирует Мура Sky Sports.

Man Utd-Liverpool 'still the biggest game'

Manchester United versus Liverpool remains "is still the biggest game" of the season, says Jose Enrique.

Just eight games into the season, United trail Liverpool by 15 points ahead of this weekend's clash between the two sides, which is live on Sky Sports Premier League from 3pm on Sunday.

But despite the gap between the teams, former Liverpool defender Enrique says nothing compares to the blood and thunder of a clash between English football's two most successful sides.

"It is and it still is [the biggest game of the season] even if United is not doing as well now," Enrique told Sky Sports News.

"For the players, for the fans, it is still the biggest game. Even Liverpool's rivalry with City, even with the way they are doing [pales in comparison]. The rivalry between United and Liverpool is different.

"The preparation is the same. The only thing when you play this game is in your mind you are more nervous than other games - that is obvious.

"It's another game, it's [potentially] three points more, but for the fans and the players it means more. So if you win it, you have a good night after the game!"

Asked what it is like for the players in the Old Trafford tunnel before they walk out, Enrique said: "It's an amazing feeling. I like the pressure when you play for big teams like Liverpool and Manchester United.

"Every player likes the pressure - that's why they play for these teams - but when you go there you forget about everything.

"You focus on the game - and it is a really rough game, a lot of tackles, a lot of intensity but you feel privileged to be there. That is how I was feeling."

Former left-back Enrique played 99 games across five seasons in all competitions for Liverpool after completing a £7m switch to Merseyside from Newcastle in 2011.

Current Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson is just nine appearances shy of the Spaniard's Liverpool tally and Enrique believes the Scotland captain can lay claim to being considered as the best player in the world in his position.

"He is unbelievable," Enrique said. "I've said it before, for me, last year he was the best left-back in the world.

"I know that was given to Marcelo but that was not fair in my opinion. Not just because Liverpool won the Champions League but because he has been an amazing player fort Liverpool.

"He gives so much to that side. And him and Mane together [on Liverpool's left] - I wouldn't want to be on the right side for the other team."

Двойной удар по "Манчестер Юнайтед"

MyLiverpool.ru - Wed, 10/16/2019 - 12:30

У "Манчестер Юнайтед" появились серьезные проблемы в преддверии столкновения с "Ливерпулем", после того, как во вторник вечером Дэвид Де Хеа почувствовал проблему с пахом, играя за сборную Испании, сообщает Mirror .

Де Хеа сначала почувствовал что-то неладное во время первого тайма матча отборочного турнира Евро-2020 против Швеции, но после осмотра в перерыве, голкипер решил продолжить игру.

Тем не менее, 29-летний игрок упал на землю вскоре после перерыва и захромал, из-за чего его пришлось заменить на вратаря "Челси" Кепу Аррисабалага на 59-й минуте.

Испания смогла сравнять счёт на добавленных минутах, добившись ничьей 1-1 на "Friends Arena" и квалифицировалась на Евро-2020, но главный тренер Роберт Морено подтвердил после матча, что Де Хеа травмирован.

Mirror утверждает, что по предварительным данным, травма несерьезна, но медицинская команда "Манчестер Юнайтед" намерена провести полное обследование сегодня, прежде чем станет известен окончательный диагноз.

Тем не менее, даже незначительная травма паха приведет к тому, что Де Хеа останется вне игры, по крайней мере, на неделю, поэтому Mirror говорит, что испанец, как ожидается, будет исключен из состава на важный воскресный поединок с "Ливерпулем" на "Олд Траффорд".

Эта новость станет огромным ударом для Оле Гуннара Сольскяера, поскольку он надеется, что сезон "Манчестер Юнайтед" можно ещё спасти, после того, как они пережили худшее начало сезона в Лиге за последние 30 лет.

Серхио Ромеро на этих выходных по-видимому заменит Де Хеа, а возможно так будет продолжаться в течение значительного периода времени.

The Times сообщает, что Люк Шоу изо всех сил пытается восстановиться к визиту "Ливерпуля" в эти выходные.

На данный момент у "Красных дьяволов" травмировано 11 игроков.

Груич уверен, что у него есть будущее в "Ливерпуле"

Premiership.ru - Wed, 10/16/2019 - 11:40

Марко Груич Полузащитник Марко Груич уверен, что у него есть будущее в "Ливерпуле".

С момента своего перехода из "Црвены Звезды" за 5.1 млн. фунтов в январе 2016 Груич сыграл только 14 матчей за "Ливерпуль" во всех соревнованиях.

Сейчас Марко второй сезон подряд проводит в "Герте" на правах аренды, однако клуб из Берлина 23-летний серб рассматривает только как трамплин.

"Влиться в состав "Ливерпуля" непросто. Я вижу себя в красной футболке, но я должен набраться больше опыта, прежде чем снова смогу надеть эту футболку".

"Я хочу улучшить свои физические кондиции и вывести свою концентрацию на более высокий уровень. Я хочу быть готовым для "Ливерпуля", чтобы у меня появились шансы пробиться в команду", — сообщил Груич Liverpool Echo.
