The Liverpool Football Club Latest Football News for 2017 – 2018
- Mon, 20 Nov 2017 08:30:45 +0000: Premier League: 10 talking points from the weekend’s action - Liverpool | The Guardian
Hugo Lloris’s top-four focus for Spurs is telling, Callum Wilson is making up for lost time and can Paul Pogba yet be compared with Steven Gerrard?
After challenging for the title for the past couple of seasons, it was significant to hear Hugo Lloris contemplate looking over Tottenham Hotspur’s shoulder more than in front of them at the end of a derby defeat. “Oh, before we think about [the leaders] Man City it’s important to stay in the top four. This is the main target for our team,” he said. “We heard from outside that Tottenham play for the title, blah, blah, blah. The most important thing is to stay consistent in the league.” The difficulty imposing themselves on the most challenging away fixtures remains a sticking point. Having lost at Old Trafford and Arsenal in recent weeks, next month they visit the Premier League’s pace setters at the Etihad Stadium. Spurs found it hard to penetrate Arsenal’s defence, and when Mauricio Pochettino subbed off Harry Kane and Dele Alli neither could feel they had been at their most influential. “The spirit was good, we were in the fight and able to develop our game with the ball in the floor. But in the final third we need more aggression and movement,” Lloris said. “Now we need to carry on. It’s true that we wanted to do more against Manchester United and Arsenal. Unfortunately we couldn’t do that so now it’s important to have a run of victories because we need to keep our place at the top.” Amy LawrenceContinue reading...

- Sat, 18 Nov 2017 18:15:38 +0000: Kenny Dalglish: ‘As long as we’re living we won’t have closure on Hillsborough’ - Liverpool | The Guardian
In a wide-ranging interview to coincide with the launch of a film about his life, Kenny Dalglish opens up about the tragedies of Hillsborough and Heysel but also the joys of football at Liverpool and Blackburn
“I wanted to do it and they wanted to come,” Kenny Dalglish says simply on a quiet morning in Liverpool as he remembers how, in April 1989, he led his daughter Kelly and son, Paul, past a vast sea of flowers covering the ground at Anfield and headed up onto the Kop to honour the 96 people who had died that month at Hillsborough. “The kids had been at the game and so it was traumatic for them but it was also an unforgettable experience on the Kop.”
Dalglish was then the 38-year-old manager of Liverpool. Kelly was 13 and Paul was 12. Liverpool had asked him to become their player-manager almost four years earlier, on 30 May 1985, the day after the Heysel Stadium disaster when 39 people lost their lives at the club’s European Cup final against Juventus.Continue reading...
- Sat, 18 Nov 2017 17:11:57 +0000: Mohamed Salah hits double to help Liverpool cruise past Southampton - Liverpool | The Guardian
Mohamed Salah has become known as “The King of Egypt” around Melwood since securing his country’s first World Cup appearance in 28 years. He has quickly established a regal presence at club level too. Liverpool’s £36.9m summer signing struck another two goals as Southampton were comprehensively outclassed.
Salah followed up a two-goal display at West Ham United before the international break with two more to take his place as the Premier League’s leading goalscorer. He was signed from Roma with speed and creativity in mind but he has exceeded expectations with 14 goals in 18 games in all competitions for his new, grateful club. Nine goals in his first 12 Premier League outings for Liverpool has also set a club record. And to think the former Chelsea winger’s finishing was subject to legitimate criticism earlier in the season.Continue reading...
- Fri, 17 Nov 2017 22:29:15 +0000: Jürgen Klopp allays health fears and prescribes Liverpool wins as remedy - Liverpool | The Guardian
• ‘Whatever people say, the NHS is not as bad as you think,’ says manager
• Sadio Mané and Philippe Coutinho in contention to face Southampton
Jürgen Klopp has allayed concerns over his health and ordered Liverpool’s players to keep him out of hospital by winning games.
The Liverpool manager missed training on Wednesday when he visited a local hospital as a precautionary measure. “I have been twice in a British hospital now,” said Klopp, who had an appendix operation in February 2016, “and whatever people say about it, the NHS is not as bad as you think!” The 50-year-old confirmed he was given the all-clear by doctors before being released on Wednesday night and allowed to take training at Melwood the following day.Continue reading...
