Klopp expects a four-team Premier League title race next season

Jurgen Klopp thinks that the dominance of Liverpool and Manchester City in the Premier League will face a challenge from the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea as both sides are improving. Liverpool were in control for much of the season before eventually winning the title and ending a 30-year wait with as much as 7 games to spare, and 23 points above second-placed Manchester City who lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last week. This was preceded by City's Premier League title triumph record two years ago with 100 points, and the Reds are in a good position to challenge the points record. A year later, the title race went to the wire between the two sides with the Citizens emerging victoriously by a point, while others languished 25 points behind. Liverpool face Manchester...

Klopp has kept his promise to restore Liverpool’s glory days

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has carved a niche for himself as the man who ended the club's Premier League title drought. He had been putting measures in place to ensure this was the case over the years after his appointment in October 2015. Liverpool contracted the German from former club Borussia Dortmund to replace Brendan Rodgers and this decision has proved to be a masterstroke going by the club's achievements in recent years. They've now won the Premier League for the 2019/20 football season and this was preceded by a UEFA Champions League triumph in the 2018/19 season, UEFA Supercup triumph, and FIFA Club World Cup triumph. The Reds are the best team in England and this cannot be argued. Jurgen Klopp has transformed Liverpool and has returned them to their former glory days....

Gomez – Liverpool squad brought closer by the pandemic

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has insisted that the coronavirus pandemic has tightened the bond in the team. The Reds alongside other rivals commenced training in small groups last week in the first step towards the resumption of the Premier League. The return to Melwood ensured that a two-month period away from group training came to an end. Regardless, Gomez insists that the time apart has positively affected the relationships within the squad. In an interview with the Liverpool official website, Gomez said: “We’ve had to have communication in a different way; it’s not been the standard come in and see each other by force every day,” “We’ve had to reach out as individuals and really stay connected by choice. That’s when you grow fonder of each other and closer because it’s been a...

Liverpool emerge as favorites to sign Koulibaly

The Reds have emerged as favorites to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly this summer ahead of the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain according to reports. Man United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly a big fan of the Senegalese center-back who has established himself as one of the best defenders in Europe in recent years. However, Le 10 Sport have claimed that the 28-year-old is most likely to end up at Anfield if he leaves Napoli and would play alongside Virgil Van Dijk in the Liverpool back four. Jurgen Klopp believes the pair would form an efficient partnership. PSG are also interested in the defender but will stick with veteran captain Thiago Silva for next season. Meanwhile, Koulibaly favors a move to the Premier League over Ligue 1. The likes of ...

Lovren says COVID-19 lockdown has been a mental battle

Liverpool defender Dejan Lovren has claimed that maintaining focus on the Premier League title race during the COVID-19 lockdown has been a mental battle irrespective of individual efforts to stay physically fit. “It hasn’t been easy as we have been locked up in our homes for 46 days now,” the Croatia international said in a chat with Saturday’s online edition of Sportske Novisti, Croatia's leading sports daily (sportske.jutarnji.hr). “The psychological aspect is the most difficult to overcome. I work out on my own as much as I can, I kick the ball around a bit with my son on our lawn, but training with the team is totally different.” Premier League action has been on suspension since March 9 and remains in limbo as they can't take steps but have to wait for the government's decis...

Voiding the Premier League – It’s Liverpool against the rest

The winner of the 2019/20 Premier League title was as good as decided several weeks back with the team in the lead just needing a few wins to seal the title. It was arguably over because it would have taken a crazy capitulation by leaders Liverpool and a mad run of form for second-placed Manchester City to topple them on the log. However, fast-forward to the present and Liverpool's long-awaited domestic triumph after almost three decades now hangs in the balance due to the coronavirus pandemic, with calls from various quarters being made for the season to be canceled. Funny enough, this is transpiring in a season where the Reds have been nothing short of legendary and exceptional. They currently sit at the top of the league table with a whopping 82 points from 29 games. It's preci...
