Klopp explains Liverpool's seven changes v Burnley

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 12/05/2018 - 18:59

Jürgen Klopp has explained why the quality of his squad encouraged him to make seven changes for the Premier League clash with Burnley.

Liverpool take on the Clarets at Turf Moor this evening seeking to extend a 14-match unbeaten start to the season, three days after a dramatic Merseyside derby victory.

Asked about his alterations to the line-up, Klopp said ahead of kick-off: “That’s absolutely normal in this period of the season.

“I said to the boys in the meeting: I have done the job now for a while and if somebody would have told me 15 years ago I could change seven positions and have a line-up like that, I would have said it was not possible.

“We do it because we can do it, because we have to do it in two or three cases, and because we can do it because we have these boys. They train really hard.

“The midfielders played a lot of games already. We had to change the midfield, the most intense area of the pitch. Using Daniel was clear; Div after the last game makes sense, using the momentum, trying to use it. Alberto – Robbo played pretty much all the games so far. Gini played a lot of games.

“There’s always a reason. But, in the end, you cannot only change; you have to make sure that it fits, that it’s tuned. The two sessions we had where we could work a little bit on it, it looked really well, so I’m looking forward to this game.”

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 12/05/2018 - 18:05

Major League Baseball star and New Balance athlete Francisco Lindor was on Merseyside this weekend for Liverpool’s derby victory over Everton.

The Cleveland Indians shortstop headed to Anfield ahead of the game, where he met with New Balance Football ambassadors Jürgen Klopp and Sadio Mane.

He then watched the Merseyside derby – his first ever Premier League game – as New Balance’s guest.

And it was one he’ll certainly never forgot as Divock Origi headed in a dramatic 96th-minute winner to clinch three points for the Reds.

Puerto Rican born Francisco is one of MLB’s brightest young players, with 98 home runs in four seasons for the Indians. He has been part of the MLB All-Star Game for each of the past three years.

Nabil Fekir set deadline to make decision on Lyon future

HEAD NEWS - Wed, 12/05/2018 - 17:42

Lyon have urged Nabil Fekir to make a decision over his future before the winter break.

The France international has 18 months remaining on his Lyon contract after his proposed move to Liverpool fell through in the summer.

Reports suggest Fekir could move on at the end of the season with Bayern Munich and Chelsea keen, while it remains to be seen if Liverpool will reignite their interest.

Lyon are still hopeful of agreeing a new contract with their skipper to avoid him leaving for a minimal fee at the end of the season or for absolutely nothing in 2020.

Le Progres reports Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is planning a meeting with Fekir to discuss his future.

Aulas was speaking at the club's AGM on Wednesday when he claimed a decision would be made before "the holidays".

Lyon play their last Ligue 1 encounter before the winter break against Montpellier on the weekend of December 21/22.

That will last until the first week of January where clubs could look to strike a deal for Fekir.

Divock Origi tipped to start at Burnley after Merseyside derby heroics

ThisIsAnfield.com - Wed, 12/05/2018 - 09:23

Divock Origi is reportedly in line for a start as Jurgen Klopp rings the changes at Burnley, having sealed Liverpool’s victory in the Merseyside derby.


Origi replaced Roberto Firmino with six minutes left of the 90 at Anfield, and produced an energetic display that saw him hit the post after winning a corner.

His defining impact came deep into stoppage time, however, when he took advantage of Jordan Pickford’s error to head home and secure a 1-0 win.

It was an unlikely intervention from the Belgian, in his first Premier League outing since the final day of the 2016/17 campaign, but now he is due to be rewarded.

According to the Mail‘s Dominic King, Origi is set to take the injured Sadio Mane‘s place in the starting lineup at Turf Moor.

Mane is suffering from a “really awful cut on his foot,” as Klopp told reporters on Tuesday, and with Liverpool in the midst of a busy period it would be wise to allow him to recover.

With Burnley sitting 19th in the table heading into Wednesday’s clash, this is arguably the best opportunity for rotation ahead of two big games against Napoli and Man United next week.

King adds that Alberto Moreno is “likely to come in,” with Andy Robertson also struggling for fitness, while it could be that Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren, Naby Keita and Daniel Sturridge are all considered.

It remains to be seen whether Origi is brought in as a like-for-like replacement for Mane on the left wing, as his best role is as the central striker.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference, Klopp lavished praise on the 23-year-old, describing his derby goal as “a wonderful example for making yourself ready for the moment.”

“It was such an important thing and so nice,” he said.

“That’s football as well, sometimes things change in a second in the wrong direction, and sometimes in the right direction.

“He played for about 10 minutes and had three really good situations—the turn and run on the right-hand side with a good cross for Daniel [Sturridge], then the shot that hit the crossbar and the goal.

“He deserved it, so it’s a really nice story.”

Starting against Burnley would mark a significant change of fortunes for Origi, who spent last season on loan with VfL Wolfsburg and turned down a £20 million move to Wolves in the summer.

His contract with Liverpool expires in 2020, and it seemed as if his time at Anfield was drawing to a close.
