Klopp and Carragher clash due to no replacement for Van Dijk

It's a no-brainer that Virgil Van Dijk is a big loss for Liverpool after he sustained an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the Merseyside derby in the Premier League on Saturday which ended in a 2 all draw. The incident has resulted in a clash between Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and former Reds defender Jamie Carragher, with emphasis on the club's transfer business this summer. Liverpool legend Carragher questioned whether the club should have signed a defensive cover for the injured Dutchman in the course of a chat with Sky Sports on Monday. "Dejan Lovren went and they didn't replace him so they only have three center-backs and one of those, Joel Matip, is always injured," "There are question marks now about Joe Gomez. So there is no doubt that Liverpool had to go big in the tra...

Premier League Matchday 5 – Everton and Villa to be thoroughly tested

The Premier League's 100 percenters will have the opportunity to prove if they're up for it or if their previous performances have been a fluke and all fairytale. Regardless, I would advise that they shouldn't be written off if they fall short on Matchday 5. Aston Villa and Everton have won all their games thus far. Carlo Ancelotti's men have proven to be a free-scoring side early into the season with 12 goals already to their name with Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring 6 of those goals, including one hat-trick. New signing James Rodriguez has also been very impressive for the Toffees thus far with 3 goals already. Aston Villa have been on a roll with an unexpected 3 wins from 3 with new signing Ollie Watkins also impressing and scoring a first-half hat-trick against defending champio...

Villa and Spurs on the beat with biggest PL Matchday 4 shockers

No one saw Jose Mourinho's Tottenham Hotspur putting six past Ole Gunnar Solksjaer's Manchester United or Dean Smith's Aston Villa putting seven past defending champions Liverpool. However, this was the case in the last two games on Matchday 4 of the 2020/21 Premier League season. This season hasn't been short of goals with lots of goals being scored thus far and shocking upsets being mounted too. Who would have thought that Everton and Aston Villa would be the only two teams with a 100% record at this point in the season? It's still early days but Carlo Ancelotti and Dean Smith deserve some credit for the performance of their teams thus far.

Chelsea vs Liverpool preview – First big game of the season

It's still early days in the 2020/21 Premier League season with the Matchday 2's fixtures yet to be executed, but we have a cracker on our hands already as Chelsea will welcome defending Champions Liverpool to Stamford Bridge on Sunday. I'm sure a good number of football fans can still recollect how the last Premier League game between these two sides panned out although it was at Anfield. A whopping eight goals were scored the last time they met with the Reds emerging victoriously with a 5:3 win in an enthralling game. Regardless, both sides will face each other coming off the back of garnering maximum points in their opening game of the season. Liverpool had to rely on an 88th-minute penalty converted by hat-trick hero Mohammed Salah to beat newly-promoted Leeds United 4:3 at An...

Liverpool must splash cash to defend Premier League title

The 2020/21 Premier League season kicks off this weekend and all eyes will be on defending champions Liverpool, as they'll be hell-bent on mounting a successful title defense. The Reds were exceptional last season and were unbeaten for most parts until the league title was almost as good as won. Jurgen Klopp and his men had very little worries in various areas of the pitch last season as players put in the required efforts including those on the bench when occasionally called upon. They took the best of the best last season to the cleaners and the points gap between first and second on the 2019/20 log is a proof and tells the full story of how brilliant they were in a season where they were heads and shoulders above their rivals. I agree that they were the best team in England ...

Van Dijk hails van de Beek’s move to rivals Man United

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has expressed the belief that van de Beek's proposed move to rivals Manchester United is a great step for the midfielder. Reports have indicated that the midfielder is very close to a £40million move from Ajax to Old Trafford. Donny van de Beek has been one of the mainstays in the Ajax side and Manchester United have emerged as favorites to land the Dutch midfielder, beating competition from other clubs that were interested in him. According to reports, the likes of Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur were interested in the midfielder, with the latter reportedly making a last-ditch attempt to seal a deal for the player. Van Dijk has said that the move is a great one for van de Beek and also for the Dutch national team as they look forward to a p...

Klopp argues how COVID-19 aided Bayern’s UCL triumph

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has argued that the COVID-19 pandemic contributed to Bayern Munich's triumph in the 2019/20 UEFA Champions League competition. The Bundesliga giants emerged victoriously over Ligue 1 giants Paris-Saint Germain in a very tight final encounter with Kingsley Coman scoring the only goal of the game and eventual winner with a header before the hour mark. The victory ensured that the Bavarian giants ended the season with a 21-match winning streak that began in mid-February. The coach of the side, Hansi Flick has been heaped with praises for his significant impact after coming in to replace Niko Kovac. However, in an interview with ZDF, Klopp who previously managed Bayern's rivals Borussia Dortmund congratulated the club but suggested that they got a little lu...

Klopp plans to take a year off after Liverpool contract

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he plans to leave Liverpool and take a year off. The German has helped the Reds to UEFA Champions League and Premier League title triumphs in the last two years and will exit the club on the expiration of his current contract. Klopp has a contract with Liverpool until 2024 after he received an extension last December. It remains to be seen if it will be his final contract in football as he didn't rule out not returning to the game after his time at Anfield ends. In a recent chat with SportBuzzer, after being asked about his plans after 2024, he replied: “I'll take a year off and ask myself if I miss football. If I say no, then that will be the end of coach Jurgen Klopp. “If one day I am no longer a coach, there is one thing I will not ...

Reports suggest Man City interest in Thiago Alcantara

Manchester City are reportedly ready to make a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Thiago Alcantara and the coach Hans-Dieter Flick has admitted that he believes that a Premier League move must be the next step for the Spaniard. Thiago has one year left on his contract with the Bundesliga giants and has told the club he would like to leave this summer for a new challenge.  He has been heavily linked with a move to Premier League champions Liverpool but it is understood that although Klopp admires the 29-year-old, a move is not likely till they let go of a key player in their midfield. Liverpool are discussing with Georgino Wijnaldum and are yet to agree terms with the Dutchman for a new contract as he enters the final 12 months of his current contract. However, it is unlikely that t...
