Klopp charges his players to create their own atmosphere

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is enjoying his players' way of creating their own atmosphere after a warm-up 6 nil friendly win against Blackburn Rovers at Anfield. The fixture allowed the German gaffer to assess the fitness of his players ahead of the Merseyside derby on June 21, and also observe how they'll adapt to playing behind-closed-doors amid safety protocols. Speaking about the absence of supporters in the stands during games, Klopp told the Liverpool official website: “Yes, it’s different, of course. You need to get used to it, but I like it. After three times, it is completely OK.

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...

"It's amazing what they are doing - it is rare to see a team winning so many games and being so d...
