Травма Коутиньо оказалась не серьезной - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 17:07

"Ливерпуль" получил окончательный вердикт по травме Коутиньо. Подтверждено, что полузащитник должен быть пригодным для воскресного матча.

Плеймейкер забил второй гол "Ливерпуля" в матче против "Манчестер Сити" на "Этихаде" в субботу вечером и отдал голевой пас на Роберто Фирмино.

Однако, бразилец был вынужден покинуть поле во второй половине встречи, после того, как получил травму подколенного сухожилия.

Согласно Sky Sports News HQ, Коутиньо сможет сыграть против "лебедей" в Премьер-лиге на "Энфилде" в воскресенье, поскольку обследование подтвердило, что травма подколенного сухожилия не является серьезной.

Бразильский нападающий забил четыре гола в своих последних пяти играх против "Сити" Мануэля Пеллегрини.

Также на его счету четыре гола в последних трех матчах Премьер-Лиги.

Rumour Mill: Liverpool “offered” Pato - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 16:52
on 24.11.2015

Liverpool have reportedly been offered Brazilian forward Alexandre Pato – following reports earlier this month that a deal had been agreed.

Pato (pictured above in his AC Milan days) was linked to Liverpool after quotes were attributed to Corinthians’ president Roberto de Andrade claiming a deal had been agreed, but de Andrade later denied this, saying: “Corinthians have received nothing. Nothing concrete has arrived.”

The 26-year-old is currently on loan to Sao Paulo and Corinthians or the player’s agent seem keen to secure a move back to Europe.

The London Evening Standard now claim “Tottenham, Arsenal and Liverpool have all been sounded out about taking Pato.”

This really sounds like his agent offering the Brazilian attacker to Premier League sides who might have interest.

As far as we’re aware, Liverpool have absolutely no interest in Pato, despite his agent seeking to link him with the Reds.

Jurgen Klopp’s focus on Liverpool’s imperfections is the perfect approach - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 15:31

Neil Poole believes that Jürgen Klopp’s understated reaction to Liverpool’s 4-1 thumping of Manchester City is just one more indication that our new manager has the necessary approach to take us back to the higher echelons of English and European football.

“I don’t know if proud is the right word, but of course I’m really satisfied with the performance. It was far away from perfect, but it was in many moments really, really good.”
— Klopp on the Reds’ 4-1 win at City

If Klopp had a Yin and Yang face and spirit-level legs, he couldn’t have provided a more balanced and level-headed analysis of Liverpool’s comfortable victory over Man City on Saturday.

When it comes to the the equation for the perfect response to a significant win it appears that Brendan Rodgers minus Rafa Benitez equals Jürgen Klopp.

Take a poker-faced Rafa scribbling a Brendan soundbite like “outstanding” into his note-book amongst his other observations, and what do you get?  A genuine appreciation and joy in the ‘many moments’ that were good, countered with the studious acknowledgement of the need for improvement.

He may not think his players are at the moment, but Klopp is currently pitch perfect in his approach to Liverpool Football Club.

Klopp’s refusal to be dragged into the scrabble for superlatives in the aftermath of the City victory, but instead place the emphasis on areas for progress, should be music to Liverpool supporters’ ears.

Such an approach was the foundation of our past success, and it is the only way we will be successful again in the future.

Rather than trawling through the most illustrious period of our history, even if you look back to our most recent era of sustained competitiveness, between 2005 and 2009, it happens under the guidance of an insatiable perfectionist. It’s not a coincidence.

As unlikely as it may initially seem, there already appears to be many similarities in the approaches of Klopp and Benitez to Liverpool Football Club. Not least, that it’s clear they’re both obsessed with finding new things to be learnt in each game, and then taught, and then taken into the next.

Every time the cameras home in on Klopp in the wake of wins, between the hugs and nearly knocking Ibe out with slaps, he is also in the ear of players like Lucas Leiva, imparting information and observations. It’s difficult not to recall Rafa doing the same to Djbril Cisse mere moments after Liverpool had just won the Champions League. It says, “Yes, we may have just won a massive game but that’s over now. Here’s how we win the next one too.”

While Rafa has his detractors and they could point his weaknesses, I’d take a Liverpool manager on an eternal quest for perfection any day of the week over one who acquiesces to and embellishes mediocrity, in the way Rodgers was prone to do in the last eighteen months of his reign.

Much has been made of Rodgers’ glowing assessments after poor games and indeed, some of it may have been for the cameras. However, three years without a trophy surely demonstrates that, at its worst, the acceptance of mediocrity, and at its best, the making of excuses for mediocrity, simply mires you in further mediocrity.

Of course, it wasn’t all mediocre under Rodgers. Far from it. Finishing second in 2013/14 was an unexpected achievement and a thrilling ride.  However, and I include myself in this, Rodgers was given far too much credit for far too long for not winning the league.

Long have we mocked other clubs for emblazoning memorabilia with Cup final appearances and runner-up berths as achievements. However, many of us found ourselves doing exactly the same.

Worst of all though has been when negative yarn has been spun to make a soothing but ultimately synthetic comfort blanket. Defeats  away to Manchester United in the league and to Chelsea in the semi-final in the League Cup last season were bizarrely treated as some sort of moral victories because the performance was improved from the abject ones which had come before.

However, the lowest of all low points came in the way we reveled in our 1-0 defeat away to Real Madrid like it was a great achievement.

I’ve forgone the obvious Brendan quote to demonstrate this, because this post match quote from Gareth Bale makes me recoil in horror:

“I was surprised by how many changes they made. But they worked hard, they gave a good account of themselves. It’s always difficult coming to the Bernabeu, playing against us. We’re always confident at our home ground, but they played well.”

We gave a good account of ourselves!

It’s difficult to play against them but we played well!

Erm, f*ck off Gareth! I never want to be in a position again where Gareth Bale thinks it’s okay to patronise my team like we’re some plucky underdog in a 3rd round FA Cup tie. Start believing you’re about as good as Havant and Waterlooville and these are the liberties people take with your reputation.

Again, you just can’t see this happening under Klopp.

On Saturday, Firmino had his best game in a red shirt by a country mile. When everyone was waxing lyrical over his performance and urging Klopp to partake in some massaging of egos, Klopp responded with this:

“Before the game, I told him he’s a striker who can sometimes be a midfielder – not the midfielder who is sometimes a striker. We need him as a target and he came very deep. So I said: ‘what are we doing here? We can’t play the ball in that direction when we have no one to play it to, please stay there.’”

Although spoken like a father gently poking fun at his son for sniffing his fingers after he’s just scratched his arse, it’s still chastising him for failing to learn a very simple lesson about an obvious thing not to do. It’s Rafa-like scrutiny but with an unarming charm that takes the rough edges off.

The content of his message too very much appears to reflect Klopp’s entire approach to the game, both on and off the pitch.  Balance is of paramount importance and extreme positions are best avoided. Don’t go too far this way. Don’t go too far that way. Look to stand in the right place. Don’t keep doing the same things wrong. Look to improve. It’s so simple it makes me want to cry.

I’m sure there’s a boss sounding German expression for this that someone will dig up!

Maybe the word is just, ‘perfekt’.

Liverpool’s tough start to 2015/16 ends with reason for positivity - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 15:07

Liverpool may not exactly be flying high in the Premier League, but when you put things into context we should be feeling positive about the season.

It’s late November and after 13 Premier League matches Liverpool sit ninth in the table with a goal difference of just plus two.

On paper, that looks a fairly insipid start to the campaign by the Reds, especially as Jurgen Klopp has been in charge for over a third of those games.

This so-called ‘bad’ start that many have focussed on really could be far worse though, and Liverpool actually find themselves in a very threatening position heading towards Christmas.

Sticky start overcome

When the fixtures were released back in June, there was a collective groan from Liverpool fans when they saw their first three months of matches.

Every single away game up until Man City last Saturday was genuinely tough, with Stoke City the easiest on the opening weekend of the season.

Philippe Coutinho‘s late goal nicked an undeserved win at the Britannia Stadium, and in Liverpool’s five other away games, against 2014/15’s top five, they picked up a very respectable nine points.

Only Man United got the better of them, and the two wins at Chelsea and Man City were among the Reds’ most emphatic of recent times.

Admittedly, the Reds’ home form has not been nearly as impressive, with several hugely frustrating afternoons endured at Anfield.

West Ham and Crystal Palace both earned deserved victories on Merseyside, while Norwich City and Southampton came away with a share of the spoils.

If careless points continue to be dropped on Merseyside, Liverpool’s chances of challenging this season can be waved goodbye.

The hope is that Anfield will become a fortress again under Klopp; something that most former managers have struggled to do in the Premier League era.

Past comparisons

One of the most encouraging things to take from Liverpool’s points tally so far this season is comparing it to years gone by.

20 points from 13 matches certainly isn’t much to get too carried away about, but as mentioned, that hugely difficult start should be taken into account.

The table below looks at how the Reds have done in their first 13 games since 2009/10, and how many away matches against their six toughest rivals they have faced in that time.

Table: Liverpool after 13 Premier League games in last six PL seasons
(NB: – The top six refers to Chelsea, Man City, Man United, Arsenal, Tottenham and Everton)

  Points Position Away games vs. Top Six Final position 2015/16 20 9th 6 ? 2014/15 17 11th 2 6th 2013/14 24 4th 2 2nd 2012/13 16 11th 2 7th 2011/12 23 6th 4 8th 2010/11 16 11th 3 6th 2009/10 20 7th 2 7th

The above information shows just how difficult Liverpool’s first third of the season has been in 2015/16, with their six most gruelling away games already done and dusted.

Only 2011/12 is remotely comparable in that respect, and the Reds are only four points worse off than they were at this stage in 2013/14, when they finished second.

It’s well worth mentioning that their five biggest rivals for the title and top four – Man City (3), Man United (2), Chelsea (2), Arsenal (1) and Spurs (2) – have faced nowhere near that amount of difficult away games yet.

To still be in the mix after this fairly hideous start can only bode well. Many of us would have expected far worse when we saw those fixtures for the first time in the summer.

Season-defining run

With Klopp’s impact becoming more and more evident by the week, and a kind upcoming run of matches, Sunday’s home game against struggling Swansea City represents the start of a very winnable spell in the league.

The Reds don’t face one of the Premier League’s heavyweight sides until Arsenal come to Anfield on 13th January, with seven league games to play until then.

Win the next 7 Swan(H) New(A) Brom(H) Wat(A) Lei(H) Sun(A) W.Ham(A) Sign Karius/Horn, Ilkay & Sane in Jan. Win title in May. Easy as.

— King Kaiser II (@LFC_forevaa) November 23, 2015

It would, of course, be both arrogant and unrealistic to brush Liverpool’s next seven opponents aside and expect maximum points, but it should certainly be seen as a genuine chance to fly up the league table.

A minimum of 15 points from the 21 available should be the aim.

Realistic expectations

Klopp’s men are only eight points off top spot, and six off Arsenal in fourth, and there is absolutely no reason why that gap cannot be bridged between now and the showdown with the Gunners.

Considering how lifeless Liverpool looked when Brendan Rodgers was sacked, it seems almost ridiculous to now be talking about a possible title challenge.

Liverpool will likely lack the consistency and firepower to stay in touch at the top until May, but it is not completely unfeasible.

The Premier League is not remotely strong at the moment, and there is not one outstanding team in it. Points are being dropped left, right and centre.

The Reds’ eye-catching win at the Etihad on Saturday will have made many sit up and take notice, and their rivals will be extremely wary of them, even if they’re too stubborn to admit it.

Fourth place should now be seen as the absolute minimum, regardless of the respective threat that City, United, Arsenal and Spurs pose. Chelsea are not down and out either, it should be stressed.

We as Liverpool fans have probably been guilty of being knee-jerk in the past when it comes to over-hyping the Reds, but there are genuine reasons to be feeling positive right now.

The impact Klopp has made has been enormous, and if they can go to grounds like Stamford Bridge and the Etihad and win handsomely, they are capable of beating anyone.

Improving results at Anfield is imperative, as is gaining close to maximum points in their next seven matches, but both are more than do-able.

Dare we dream?

> Where does 4-1 win at Man City rank among Liverpool’s best Premier League victories?

> Adam Lallana: Improving under Klopp but still with work to do

> Moulding more players into match winners like Coutinho is not beyond Klopp

Video: Carragher on Liverpool’s win at Man City: “It was like watching the Red Arrows!” - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 14:15

Monday Night Football saw Jamie Carragher and Gary Neville analyse Liverpool’s 4-1 win at Man City, with plenty of praise for Jurgen KLopp‘s front three.

[embedded content]

“The first 30 or 35 minutes was as good as anything I can remember,” praised Carragher.

“Not from Klopp or any Liverpool team, but in the Premier League – at least when going away to a big team like Man City who are one of the top sides.

“For Liverpool supporters in their forties or fifties, the run they went on for the first goal was like Ian Rush running onto the end of a Kenny Dalglish pass – a straight pass to a diagonal run. That is what you saw all day.

“It was like the Red Arrows watching Liverpool, they were just running through people all the time. They could’ve scored another two or three goals just from this sort of tactic.

“The front three of Coutinho, Firmino and Adam Lallana were scintillating and they played very narrow. The two reasons for that, I think, was to stop Man City – when they were in possession – from playing balls into midfield and force them wide.

“But also when they’re that narrow, they can make penetrating runs from there because City centre-backs like to step out to the ball, be aggressive and when they’re on the edge of the box, they always hold that line.”

“You could see the work that had been done during the week.

“There was talk about why [Christian] Benteke wasn’t playing and Klopp said, ‘Well I’ve been using the same players for the last 10 days in training’ and you can see how that’s worked.

“We’ve spoken about the work of Klopp in terms of being organised and pressing. I think that was the first time we’ve seen the work of him offensively, what he can do and maybe the damage he can cause with his teams, and that’s from working with those players for 10 days during the international break.”

There was also analysis of Lucas’ role, and what went wrong for City.

Coutinho injury update: Minor hamstring strain means he could play vs. Swansea - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 13:38
on 24 November, 2015

Philippe Coutinho limping out of the 4-1 win at Man City on Saturday was the only disappointment of the game, but it’s good news on his injury.

The Reds’ No.10 was replaced by Jordon Ibe with 22 minutes left to play but a scan on Monday has revealed the Brazilian has only a minor strain and therefore won’t be sidelined for long.

Liverpool, according to several reports, haven’t ruled him out of Sunday’s home match with Swansea City.

He will, however, miss Thursday’s Europa League tie with Bordeaux at Anfield. That will likely mean a start for Christian Benteke or Daniel Sturridge, with Roberto Firmino dropping into one of the attacking midfield roles.

Coutinho is Liverpool’s top goalscorer so far this season with five goals – which equals his league tally for the whole of the last campaign.

After the match on Saturday Jurgen Klopp said: “He showed not a real [injury], it was a little bit of cramp, he felt something.

“I hope that’s all, he will be very important for us, everybody can see he’s in really good shape in this moment. I hope he can react well enough.”

Миньоле: "Наш план сработал"

ЛиверпульФС ру - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 12:56

Наверняка, даже сам Юрген Клопп не надеялся на столь успешный исход матча, в котором его подопечные заставили замолчать "Этихад", победив Манчестер Сити со счетом 4:1. Мерсисайдская Команда буквально разорвала оборону противника скоростными комбинациями.

Первый гол в свои ворота забил Эльяким Мангаля, однако он состоялся благодаря точным проникающим маневрам Филипе Коутиньо и Роберто Фирмино, вынудивших защитника ошибиться.

Аргентинскому нападающему "Горожан" Серхио Агуэро удалось забить гол с дистанции, но, как оказалось, это был лишь утешительный приз для хозяев и их болельщиков. Об этом красноречиво свидетельствует финальный счет матча, который хорошим ударом окончательно установил Мартин Шкртел.

"Мы сыграли очень хорошо и полностью удовлетворены результатом. Босс разработал определенный план на игру, и он отлично сработал", – рассказывает Симон Миньоле в интервью официальному сайту клуба.

"Ключевыми были инструкции Клоппа и подготовка к матчу. Мы не давали продохнуть сопернику, а впереди атакующая тройка – Адам (Лаллана), Фил и Роберто – создавала отличные моменты. Они были превосходны".

"Мы забили три быстрых гола, а их заявка на камбэк в конце первого тайма в виде гола Агуэро не увенчалась успехом, ведь во втором тайме мы опять были сильней".

"В перерыве босс сказал, что вести со счетом 3:1 на выезде против Манчестер Сити – отличное начало, так что мы обязаны вернуться на поле с мощным позитивным настроем".

"Мы действовали именно в таком ключе, и гол Агуэро не повлиял на нас. Команда продолжила играть в свою игру и смогла забить ещё. Более того, мы могли забить и больше – именно такой настрой и должен быть, когда играешь против Сити".

"Думаю, мы могли выиграть с ещё более разгромным счетом, если вспомнить все голевые моменты. Ребята счастливы и рассчитывают развить успех на следующей неделе".

Субботний успех напомнил матч трёхнедельной давности против Челси, когда подопечные Юргена Клоппа также использовали постоянный прессинг и высокий темп – обязательные игровые требования немецкого специалиста.

Миньоле добавил: "Мы контролировали темп игры и не давали футболистам Сити спокойно вздохнуть, когда они получали мяч. А когда мяч оказывался у нас, мы старались мгновенно доставлять его вперед".

"Мы выполнили одну из установок – успешно использовать множество моментов во время контратак. Это отличный способ преуспеть, когда играешь в гостях против соперников такого высокого уровня".

"Мне кажется, наши оппоненты так и не смогли показать свою игру. Все понимали, что у них будет минимум два-три голевых шанса, но мы хорошо оборонялись и сами создали достаточно опасных моментов".

Поездка в Манчестер стала первой в плотном графике матчей – до конца 2015 года команде предстоит провести ещё 9 игр в чемпионате, Лиге Европы и Кубке Лиги, причем шесть из них – в ближайшие три недели.

Миньоле призвал поумерить послематчевую эйфорию, так как уже в четверг команду ждёт испытание в виде еврокубкового матча на "Энфилде" против Бордо, победа в котором обеспечит Красным” выход в плей-офф турнира.

Он продолжил: "Нам нужно двигаться поступательно, от матча к матчу. В четверг нас ждет очередная цель – Бордо, и мы хотим пройти дальше".

"Мы попразднуем немного, однако с воскресенья не мешало бы сфокусировать свое внимание на подготовке к следующему домашнему матчу против французской команды. Хотелось бы сохранить победный импульс и уверенность в себе, которые мы получили в матче против Сити".

Клопп: На тактические перестановки Пеллегрини мы нашли правильный ответ - Втр, 24/11/2015 - 11:23

Тренер "Ливерпуля" Юрген Клопп на официальном сайте клуба рассказал о том, как проходила игра, в которой его команда одолела "Манчестер Сити" 4-1 в субботу.

Результат стал неожиданностью для многих, учитывая положение обеих клубов в Лиге, но "Ливерпуль" был лучшей командой и вполне заслужил свою победу.

Голы Филиппе Коутиньо, Роберто Фирмино, Мартина Шкртел и автогол Мангала обеспечили "Ливерпулю" уверенную победу над "Сити", для которых гол Серхио Агуэро стал лишь минимальным утешением.

Но Клопп объяснил, что все могло бы быть иначе, поскольку его команде пришлось бороться изо всех сил, когда "горожане" изменили свою тактику после перерыва, выдвинув бывшего вингера "Ливерпуля" Рахима Стерлинга в центр нападения.

Выступая на официальном сайте клуба, Клопп сказал: “Они изменили систему в перерыве, выстроились в 4-4-2, и отослали Стерлинга в центр на помощь Агуэро. Это было трудно, но выполнимо. Нам потребовались ответные действия и ребята с задачей справились”.

Стерлинг доказал, что может быть реальной угрозой, играя ближе к центру атаки, когда забил "хет-трик" против "Борнмута" перед этим.

Но на этот раз "Ливерпуль" выстоял и добился заслуженной победы, заставив болельщиков надеяться на то, что в судьбе команда произошел поворот.
