Reds among PL clubs keen on Groeneveld

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 20:07

Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton are monitoring Club Brugge winger Arnaut Danjuma Groeneveld, according to reports.

Groeneveld, 21, has been out of action since October with an ankle injury, but that hasn’t stopped clubs from taking an interest in signing him.

According to The Daily Mail, the Netherlands international is attracting attention from a range of European sides, including AC Milan who have recently had a £9 million bid rejected.

Manchester City are also said to have been interested in the player recently, and his future lies in the balance just seven months on from transferring to Brugge from NEC Nijimegen.

However, it’s the Premier League trio of Liverpool, Everton and Spurs who are the ones keen to sign the winger during the current transfer window with the ankle issue not viewed as a huge problem right now.

Before the injury, Groeneveld grabbed attention after a brilliant goal against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League, while also making his international debut against Germany in October.

It remains to be seen whether any Premier League club will launch a formal offer, but for now, Groeneveld is becoming a key target for many of the division’s clubs.

Moanes Dabour waiting for Liverpool call

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 17:28

Liverpool transfer target Moanes Dabour is reportedly keen to move to Anfield and is just waiting for the call.

Dabour has shone for Red Bull Salzburg this season, scoring 20 goals in 30 games, with six of those coming in the Europa League.

Dabour, who is also reportedly wanted by Fulham, recently announced that he will leave his current club this month.

“I’m going to leave Salzburg in the next few days,” said the Israeli striker.

Dabour has supposedly been watched by Anfield scouts numerous times this season as Jurgen Klopp eyes reinforcements.

And Tutto Mercato Web claim Dabour is just waiting for a call from Klopp to make the move.

And though Dabour is keen to make the switch, Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund does not want him to go.

“We need him, he is a key player for us,” Freund said.

“We do not want Dabour to leave in this window market, but we can not exclude anything in football.”

Reds linked with Coady return & Klopp reveals Mane regret – Monday’s Liverpool FC News Roundup

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 16:13

We round up the latest Liverpool news and transfer rumours on Monday, as another week of gossip gets underway.


Today’s Main Headlines Reds Return for Coady?

Conor Coady is excelling at Wolves this season, captaining the Premier League newcomers and helping them reach 11th in the table.

According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool are interested in re-signing the 25-year-old, having previously skippered them at youth team level.

The Reds are believed to be “monitoring his progress,” with Arsenal showing particular interest in taking him to the Emirates.

It has alerted Wolves into considering offering Coady a new deal, with the club clearly desperate to keep hold of a key man.

He would surely find it impossible to say no to a return to his boyhood club, even though the rumour should be taken with a pinch of salt for the time being.

Klopp Reveals Mane Regret

Jurgen Klopp, Sadio Mane, Roma (PA IMages)

Jurgen Klopp has revealed one of his biggest mistakes in management: not signing Sadio Mane for Borussia Dortmund when he had the chance.

Speaking to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds boss opened up about not acquiring the services of the player he eventually took to Anfield in 2016:

“I have made a few mistakes in my life and one of my biggest mistakes ever was not taking Sadio when I was at Dortmund,” he added.

“We were together in an office and I spoke to him. Afterwards I wasn’t sure but that was really my fault!

“He’s an outstanding boy and life gave me a second chance to work with him and hopefully we can both use it.”

Mane has been a magnificent signing by Klopp, with the Senegalese scoring 42 goals in 100 appearances for Liverpool.

Dybala Happy to Avoid Liverpool

Liverpool have become one of the most feared teams in Europe, following last season’s road to Kyiv and a stunning first half to their 2018/19 campaign.

Someone who is pleased his side managed to avoid the Reds in the Champions League last-16 is Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, who spoke of his relief to Telefoot:

“The Champions League is the main objective for us this season. And we’ll do everything we can to win it.

“Atletico Madrid are, along with Liverpool, the worst side we could’ve picked in the draw.”

It speaks volumes that someone playing for such a European powerhouse—one that added Cristiano Ronaldo to its ranks last summer—is so scared of this Liverpool outfit.

Volunteers Required for Paisley Mosaic

Liverpool Football Club are in need of volunteers to help lay out a mosaic celebrating Bob Paisley’s 100th birthday this weekend.

The mosaic will be displayed ahead of the Reds’ crucial Premier League clash with Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday, with Paisley’s actual milestone taking place a week on Wednesday (January 23).

Anyone interested has been asked by the club to email Andy Knott ([email protected]), with assistance required on Friday afternoon.

Paisley achieved greatness during his nine years in charge of Liverpool, winning six league titles and three European Cups.

Critchley Hails “Infectious” Coyle

Neil Critchley‘s U23s are in action on Monday evening, with the young Reds hosting Brighton in Premier League 2.

Liam Coyle could feature at Kirkby and his manager has heaped praise on his attitude, claiming his influence inspires those around him.

“Coyley is the type of boy and type of character you always want to have in your team,” Critchley told Liverpoolfc.com.

“You want to pick him, he’s an infectious boy in terms of what he gives you every single day on the training pitch and that rubs off on the other players.

“He has had his ups and downs with injury but he has hit a run of form now and consistency in terms of playing which has really benefitted him, and hopefully we can see the best of him in the second half of the season.”

Youth Cup Ticket Info

Liverpool U18s host Accrington Stanley in the FA Youth Cup fourth round next Monday evening (7pm GMT) at St Helens’ Totally Wicked Stadium.

The club have sent out a reminder regarding tickets, with adults charged £3 and concessions having to pay just £1 to see events unfold.

The Reds are looking to win the competition for the first time since 2007, when they got the better of Man United in the two-legged final.

Nathaniel Clyne switch proving beneficial while others return this week – Liverpool FC Winter Loan Update

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 14:20

It was a low-key weekend for Liverpool’s loaned players, with several European leagues not yet up and running after the winter break.


The majority of the Reds’ players out on temporary deals will not return to action until next weekend—while a handful of others missed out on Premier League and Championship action this past weekend.

Harry Wilson sat out on Derby County’s 2-0 loss against league leaders Leeds United, suffering with a hip injury which has seen him miss the last two fixtures.

He’s also likely to be sidelined for the Rams’ FA Cup third round replay against Southampton, which is on Wednesday evening.

Ovie Ejaria has started his loan spell at Reading, but he was not involved against Nottingham Forest. His next opportunity for involvement comes at Wilson’s Derby County, on Saturday.

Danny Ings, meanwhile, was injured for Southampton‘s win over Leicester—but boss Ralph Hasenhuttl hopes he’ll return for the weekend visit of Everton.

Clyne switch already proving beneficial

 Mark Kerton/PA Wire. )

Nathaniel Clyne‘s loan switch to Bournemouth has provided plenty of debate over the past week, but the fact is that with his 90-minute outing at the weekend, he’s already made more starts for the Cherries this term than for the Reds.

The right-back played the full 90 minutes on Sunday as Bournemouth went down 2-0 at Everton, with Clyne a solid performer throughout.

Wearing No. 23 for his new club, Clyne was certainly involved with regularity; he made more tackles (4) than any other Bournemouth player and had the fourth-highest pass success (75 per cent) rate for his team.

Having also started the FA Cup loss to Brighton, that’s two straight 90-minute outings for the defender, who only started a single time for Jurgen Klopp‘s side this season—the win over Man United.

Meanwhile, Rafa Camacho has made his Liverpool senior debut and defensive options are gradually beginning to become available to the manager again.

It’s early days, but his move appears to have been vindicated on all sides.

Kane involved in League One thriller

Doncaster Rovers' Herbie Kane (Dave Howarth/PA Archive/PA Images)

Herbie Kane has been a standout among the Reds’ loan players this season and he managed another 90 minutes on the pitch for Doncaster this weekend.

Unfortunately it wasn’t especially an outing to remember, as Kane and Co. suffered a 3-2 defeat at Wycombe in League One—despite leading 2-0 with just 14 minutes left on the clock.

The best moment of the match for the young midfielder came as he lashed in an acrobatic volley from outside the box, but it was comfortably saved.

At the other end of the pitch, he’ll perhaps think he could have done more to close down the move which eventually led to the late equaliser, before a stoppage-time winner completed a remarkable collapse from Rovers.

Kane was also booked near the end of the match, just a couple of minutes after he was himself on the receiving end of a heavy foul which resulted in two players being carded for the ensuing melee.

Winter break

Fussball, Herren, 1. Bundesliga, Saison 2018/19, 14. Spieltag, Hertha BSC - Eintracht Frankfurt, Jubel nach dem Tor zum 1:0 durch Marko Grujic (Nr. 15, Hertha BSC), 08.12.18, DFL REGULATIONS PROHIBIT ANY USE OF PHOTOGRAPHS AS IMAGE SEQUENCES AND/OR QUASI-VIDEO, *** Football Men 1 Bundesliga Season 2018 19 14 Matchday Hertha BSC Eintracht Frankfurt Jubilation after the goal to 1 0 by Marko Grujic Nr 15 Hertha BSC 08 12 18 DFL REGULATIONS PROHIBIT ANY USE OF PHOTOGRAPHS AS IMAGE SEQUENCES AND OR QUASI VIDEO.

The rest of the Reds’ contingent still have a few more days to go before they can get back to action—if fit and selected, which wasn’t the case for all of them just prior to the break.

Marko Grujic (Hertha) and Allan Rodrigues (Eintracht Frankfurt) see the Bundesliga resume this coming weekend, while Ligue 1 does similar, meaning Sheyi Ojo (Reims) will be hoping for increased game time.

In Belgium’s Jupiler League, Anderson Arroyo continues at KAA Gent, with the U21 side, but striker Taiwo Awoniyi has switched to Royal Excel Mouscron after falling out of favour at Gent in the first half of the season.

Two goalkeepers out in European leagues are Loris Karius, at Besiktas, and Kamil Grabara, at AGF Aarhus.

Karius’ side get underway on Friday night, but AGF do not resume Superliga activities until February 8. Before then, Grabara could be involved in friendly matches and the Atlantic Cup, with his side facing Jablonec of the Czech Republic and Rosenborg of Norway.

Finally, up in Scotland, Ryan Kent (Rangers) and Adam Bogdan (Hibs) will resume domestic duties this weekend in the Scottish FA Cup, with the Scottish Premiership getting back underway the following midweek.

Meanwhile, a handful of youngsters have returned to Liverpool after the end of their loan deals—some prematurely.

Ben Woodburn saw his Sheffield United switch ended early and he is expected to move back out elsewhere soon, with other Championship clubs interested in his services.

Shamal George has finished his loan at Tranmere, playing three cup games, while Corey Whelan is back after playing 18 games with Crewe.

Connor Randall is also back, having suffered a loan-ending injury in September, Neil Critchley has said Randall “needs a run of games now and we’ll see where he goes in the next half of the season.”

Doubtless there will be interest in one or two other U23 starlets at the club before the January transfer window shuts.

Liverpool monitoring Conor Coady situation

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 14:15

Wolves are ready to open contract talks with captain Conor Coady this month to ward off major interest in the centre-back, Sportsmail understands.

Coady has emerged into the England reckoning with his performances this season and there is recognition at Molineux his improvement needs to be recognised with fresh terms.

The 25-year-old will have only two years left on his current deal this summer and Wolves want to offer an improved wage to bring Coady in line with the club's higher earners.

As with the rest of the squad, Coady received an automatic 50 per cent rise for gaining promotion to the Premier League but Nuno Espirito Santo has since signed Joao Moutinho and Rui Patricio on significant salaries.

Wolves are aware Coady is being scouted by the Premier League's elite teams, with Arsenal paying particularly close attention due to his ability to play out from the back. Liverpool, Coady's boyhood club, are also monitoring his progress.

Ref Watch: Did Pogba escape red card?

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 14:06

Last Updated: 14/01/19 10:36pm

Pogba (right) catches Alli with a high boot at Wembley, but was it worthy of a red?

Pogba (right) catches Alli with a high boot at Wembley, but was it worthy of a red?

Should Paul Pogba have seen red against Tottenham? Were Liverpool fortunate to get a penalty at the Amex? Former Premier League referee Dermot Gallagher gives us his verdict from the weekend's games and Tuesday's VAR controversy at Wembley.

Man City vs Wolves

January 14, 2019, 7:00pm

Live on

As always, there were a whole host of hotly-contested decisions over the past few days. So whether it was disputed penalties, potential offside goals, or possible sendings-off, Dermot spoke to Sky Sports News about all those big incidents...

Tottenham 0-1 Manchester United 2:38 Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp were involved in a lively debate over whether Paul Pogba should have been sent off against Tottenham Graeme Souness and Jamie Redknapp were involved in a lively debate over whether Paul Pogba should have been sent off against Tottenham

INCIDENT: Paul Pogba is booked after catching on Dele Alli with a high tackle, before the United midfielder then kicks the ball away.

VERDICT: Correct decision, just a booking.

DERMOT SAYS: I think yellow card. He goes to win the ball with the other foot, he has taken a step to go over it, he does go over the ball and he catches him on the back of the thigh. It is reckless, but he genuinely goes to play the ball.

Is he going to be second yellow-carded for delaying the restart? Well, he did not really delay the restart because the restart could not take place because Mike Dean had to give him a yellow card, he probably had to speak to him and say: 'Look, I think you are reckless, that is a high-tariff yellow card'. He wanted time to take him out and cool him down and in that period, you could not really restart the game.

He may be stopping a fast free-kick, but the referee controlled that himself, so he did not really delay the restart himself.

2:55 Highlights from Manchester United's 1-0 win against Tottenham in the Premier League Highlights from Manchester United's 1-0 win against Tottenham in the Premier League

INCIDENT: Harry Kane has a first-half goal disallowed for offside

VERDICT: Correct decision, offside

DERMOT SAYS: Great call because when the ball comes across, the assistant has to be aware of where Kane is. When it comes in, he is obviously not in an offside position. The minute Dele Alli knocks it down... and this is a lad [Dan Robathan] who is new to the Premier League, he has done less than 20 games, but has had a fantastic start. And again, it is all about the start position.

Brighton 0-1 Liverpool 2:59 Highlights from Liverpool's 1-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League Highlights from Liverpool's 1-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League

INCIDENT: Pascal Gross gives away a penalty after hauling down Mohamed Salah in the box.

VERDICT: Correct decision, penalty.

DERMOT SAYS: It was a clumsy tackle - if you watch, he catches him on the back of the thigh with his left leg, it is just clumsy, he has gone down and I think it is a penalty. And again, the referee [Kevin Friend] is in a decent position and as Salah is shaping to shoot, he catches him on the back of the leg and he has only got one leg on the ground, so he is going to go over.

Tottenham 1-0 Chelsea 3:42 Highlights of the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg tie between Tottenham and Chelsea Highlights of the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg tie between Tottenham and Chelsea

INCIDENT: Tottenham are awarded a penalty by the VAR after Harry Kane is upended by Kepa, but was the Spurs striker onside?

VERDICT: Correct decisions on both calls.

DERMOT SAYS: The big, big talking point of the week. How they calibrate it (the offside) with then feet, he certainly is onside and I think the right decision was made on both counts (the offside and the penalty).

Was Harry Kane offside? Was Harry Kane offside? Was Harry Kane offside?

That is how it is (calibrating offside decisions on where a player's feet are) and what you have to say is everybody wanted this to come into place and that referees need help. We can see already that we are going to be in a better place for it, so now is not the time to be dissing it off.

West Ham 1-0 Arsenal 2:40 Highlights from West Ham's 1-0 win over Arsenal in the Premier League Highlights from West Ham's 1-0 win over Arsenal in the Premier League

INCIDENT: Fourth official Stuart Attwell has to come on as an assistant referee for Andy Halliday, who felt unwell.

VERDICT: The best time for this to happen is at half-time of a match!

DERMOT SAYS: What I will say is, if ever you are going to change to be an assistant from the fourth official, the perfect time is half-time. The reason I say that is because he has a chance and all that time to warm up. The worst point is about 25 minutes into the game which has just unfolded and all the players are up to speed, you come in there straight off the line because you feel obliged to go straight in and you have not warmed up. So, if it is going to happen, that is the best time.

Leeds 2-0 Derby 0:54 Leeds were denied a penalty after 32 seconds against Derby, the referee ruling in favour of his linesman, who had already raised his flag for an offside decision against Ezgjan Alioski Leeds were denied a penalty after 32 seconds against Derby, the referee ruling in favour of his linesman, who had already raised his flag for an offside decision against Ezgjan Alioski

INCIDENT: Leeds are awarded a penalty, but the referee's assistant says Ezgjan Alioski is offside in the build-up.

VERDICT: Wrong decision, onside

DERMOT SAYS: He is just not focused on it. The referee [Andy Davies] has made the right decision, the game has gone on and it is a penalty. The assistant calls him across and says it is offside, but when you see it sideways on, he is clearly onside. I never like criticising assistants as they have such a tough job, but at this level he should not be making an error of that magnitude. It was a big error as then it compounded it as it would have been a penalty.

Watch brilliant video as Steve McManaman & Robbie Fowler answer key questions from their Liverpool days

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 12:01

Two Liverpool greats of the 1990s joined forces once more to answer fans’ questions about their time at the club for this video from BT Sport.

[embedded content]

Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman were a double act which terrified defences around the Premier League in the mid-to-late 90s.

Primarily under Roy Evans, the duo worked in tandem in the Reds’ attack, producing scintillating performances and no shortage of goals: Macca the schemer-in-chief, Fowler the goalscorer.

Indeed, McManaman captained the side and played 364 times for the Reds, before departing for Real Madrid.

Fowler, meanwhile, earned the nickname ‘God’ from fans for his consistent ability to plunder goals, hitting 183 across two spells with the club—and making just five appearances more, all told, than his great pal.

In this great video, they offer insight into their playing days at Anfield, fielding questions including their favourite goal, what that Liverpool side needed to become league champions and whatever happened to those infamous white suits!

Fowler also reveals how he ended up on a Real Madrid celebration bus tour, while both opt for each other as their greatest team-mates.

There’s also a noticeable lack of diplomacy on show when one fan asks them to judge the playing career of fellow BT Sports pundit Robbie Savage!

Fowler and McManaman were iconic stars of that particular Liverpool era and it’s clear that both continue to hold the club in enormous regard.

Overseas training camp to provide fitness relief for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool squad

ThisIsAnfield.com - Mon, 01/14/2019 - 11:30

Liverpool’s heavy December run is in contrast to their fixture list over the next six weeks and a training camp abroad will be hugely beneficial.


Jurgen Klopp has had to manage his squad over the winter months, with a few injuries starting to hit around the turn of the year.

Even so, the Manager of the Month award came his way after leading the Reds to eight wins from eight last month—and a return to winning ways came at the weekend after a first league defeat of the season at Man City.

The victory over Brighton saw midfielder at Fabinho at centre-back due to defensive absences, while a handful of other players have missed games of late due to knocks also.

Klopp has pinpointed a break in matches toward the end of the month and told the Echo that it will be crucial for fitness-building and rehabilitation—though in doing so also revealed Adam Lallana is again set to miss this entire month and presumably into February.

“The break that we are getting at the end of January is going to be 100 per cent helpful for the boys with injuries.

“I hope that Dejan [Lovren] and Joe [Gomez] make big steps to come forward.

“For Adam [Lallana] it might be a bit early but we have a few players out and they need the time.

“We have Joel [Matip] now back as he was on the bench against Brighton but he as well will use the time for bone healing and it all helps so it’s good for us in that way.”

The squad are set to head off to Dubai for a mid-season training camp, allowing the players to recharge in a somewhat warmer climate.

While not yet confirmed, the plan is to leave Merseyside after the Crystal Palace game on January 19, after which there is a gap of 11 days before the next fixture at home to Leicester (January 30).

The Reds also went to Dubai last year, having previously opted for Spain as a mid-season training camp location.

Klopp: How Reds can benefit from 11-day fixture gap

Jürgen Klopp feels the break between fixtures Liverpool will have at the end of January will assist with getting the squad back to full strength.

The Reds face Crystal Palace at Anfield on Saturday before an 11-day gap ahead of their next outing – a home encounter with Leicester City on January 30.

And with Dejan Lovren, Joe Gomez and Adam Lallana currently unavailable for selection due to injuries, and Joel Matip making his way back to full fitness, Klopp is hopeful the short break will prove beneficial.

"The break that we are getting at the end of January is going to be 100 per cent helpful for the boys with injuries,” the boss told the Liverpool Echo.

"I hope that Dejan and Joe make big steps to come forward.

"For Adam it might be a bit early but we have a few players out and they need the time.

 "We have Joel now back as he was on the bench against Brighton but he as well will use the time for bone healing and it all helps so it's good for us in that way."
