View from the manager, Neil Critchley

"We are looking forward to playing on a Saturday night under the floodlights at Prenton Park. It's a different time to what we would normally play, but sometimes you have to move the games around to work around the different schedules you have.

"It's a really exciting game in prospect with us first and Everton in second place so it's one we are really looking forward to. We won't approach this game any different to what we would do a normal Premier League 2 game, and hopefully we can come out on top.

"Everton have some got some really good young players but so have we. It's great to play in these games because you want to pit yourself against the best players and challenge yourselves."

View from the player, Lloyd Jones

"It has been a really positive season for us so far. We are top of Premier League 2, scoring a lot of goals and not conceding many, and it's good to see a lot of young lads coming through.

"Every day in training we are trying to improve and improving each other. The intensity has been really strong, we had a really good pre-season and we have taken that into the season.

"We can't wait for the mini-derby. Everton are only two points behind us in the table and it is a massive game for us. We need to win our battles all over the pitch and these are my favourite games."

Reds launch sensory room at Anfield

Reds launch sensory room at Anfield

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 14:00

LFC will launch a new sensory room at Anfield this weekend for fans to access on a matchday.

The new sensory room, which will be based in the Kenny Dalglish Stand, will comprise a range of specialist equipment and has been created to enable people with a sensory need such as autism to experience football matches in a comfortable environment suitable for their needs.

Some of the newly purchased portable equipment includes; a sensory portable bubble tube and light unit, fibre optic carpet, a projector and an LED bean bag.

The new facility was made possible by funding from the Premier League and BT, who working with the Shippey Campaign, want to encourage the creation of sensory rooms at all Premier League clubs.

This followed the successful introduction of a sensory room at Sunderland AFC in 2015-16, which enabled Nathan Shippey, who has autism, to experience football matches in a comfortable and appropriate environment. LFC are the fourth top-flight club to open a sensory room, and utilise the funding of specialist equipment from the Premier League and BT.

The first official use of the new sensory room, which will be able to accommodate four fans and four carers at a time, will take place at the Reds’ fixture against Southampton on Saturday.

Simon Thornton, LFC’s diversity and inclusion officer, said: “We are delighted to be officially launching our new sensory room, which has been in development for a while. We are committed to being as inclusive and accessible as possible and we believe that this new facility will provide more of our fans with the opportunity to experience watching a live game at Anfield.

”I would like to thank Autism Together for their advice and guidance on our new facility and the Premier League and BT for their generous donation, which has made this project possible.”

Yvonne Crowhurst, head of charity Autism Together's Autism Training and Advisory Service, added: "It's fantastic to have such an iconic Liverpool institution as Liverpool FC on board as an Autism Champion. It really means something when the big names show they're listening to the autism community. One in every 100 people in Liverpool are on the autism spectrum and it's our job to make sure this city shows they are accepted and gives them a warm welcome, whether they're using public transport, taking in a film, eating out, shopping or going to a game.

"The team at Anfield have demonstrated that small changes can make a huge difference to people on the spectrum. The new sensory room will mean that people with autism can watch a game in their own way, in a quieter, calmer environment. I'm sure the box will be visited, over the years, by many people who never thought they'd be able to come to a match. It'll bring them and their families so much joy. We hope other clubs around the country will follow Liverpool FC's lead."

The sensory room will be available on a trial basis at a number of games during the remainder of the 2017-18 season. Fans who would like to access the new facility should register their interest via disability@liverpoolfc.com. Details of your disability will be required.

Tickets for the sensory room will be priced at £40 for the disabled supporter. A complimentary personal assistant ticket will also be provided.  

Depending on demand for the facility, a rota will be established amongst registered supporters to ensure that it is made available to as many of our fans as possible.

For more information about accessing the sensory room fans should contact the disability ticketing team on disability@liverpoolfc.com or 0151 264 2500 (press option 2).

Liverpool become Diversity Champions

Liverpool become Diversity Champions

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 13:00

Liverpool FC has signed up to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion, becoming the first Premier League club to join the programme.

Stonewall, Europe’s leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, works with more than 750 organisations to help them create workplaces that are inclusive and welcoming of LGBT people. 

As a Diversity Champion, the club will receive expert consultation and advice from one of Stonewall’s client account managers. 

Working together, LFC and Stonewall will review current polices, practices and staff training and work on reinforcing the club as a workplace where everyone can be themselves. 

Committing to be a Diversity Champion is another progressive step for the club, which was also rewarded this year with an accolade from the Premier League.

In May, LFC became the first club to achieve the Advanced Level the Premier League Equality Standard, recognising the commitment of club leadership to equality, diversity and inclusion, the development of inclusive policy and procedures as well as the great work of LFC’s community programme, Red Neighbours and the club’s official charity, LFC Foundation. 
 
The club’s commitment comes just weeks before Stonewall holds its annual Rainbow Laces campaign, which will see sport across the UK turn rainbow from November 24 to December 3 in support of the LGBT community.  

Peter Moore, CEO of LFC, said: "Liverpool FC has long been committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and to ensuring that it is embedded in all areas across the club and we are delighted to be spearheading Stonewall’s Diversity Champion programme. 

"We believe that sport should be inclusive and that nobody should miss out simply because of who they are. From our club charity’s inclusive sports programmes to achieving the Premier League’s Advanced Equality Standard this year, we are proud to keep striving to make sport for everyone."

Ruth Hunt, Stonewall’s chief executive, added: "It’s so important for organisations to actively work towards making sport everyone’s game. Many LGBT people want to take part in sport, either as players or fans, but at the moment not everyone feels welcome.

"We also know that most sports fans want a better, more inclusive game. To make this happen, we need individuals and organisations to step up to show their support for LGBT people and that’s what Liverpool FC have done today. We’re excited they’ve joined us as a Diversity Champion and we look forward to working with them to help further LGBT equality in football."

Liverpool v Southampton Preview - Key Battles

Anfield Index.com - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 12:31

Let’s rejoice! There is no international football for four months. And Virgil van Dijk is coming to Anfield! Just not the kind of Anfield visit we’d have hoped for.

The Reds host Southampton on Saturday and will look to pile the pressure on former assistant manager Mauricio Pellegrino, as Jurgen Klopp looks for momentum heading into the busiest period of the season. The next two weeks are a defining part of the season, with the Premier League game against Chelsea coming up soon, and the Reds’ fate still to be decided in the UEFA Champions League.

Sadio Mane is back fit, so is Philippe Coutinho. Adam Lallana is also back in first-team training, but the visit of his former club might just be a bit too soon for him to push for a starting spot.

Mo Salah, Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Daniel Sturridge had no international duty in the break, which meant that they have had enough time to recharge their batteries ahead of this gruelling period that awaits them.

Here are the key individual battles that will define the outcome of the game.

ROBERTO FIRMINO v VIRGIL VAN DIJK

It is a Liverpool game at Anfield, but somehow the cynosure of all eyes is going to be a player from the opposition. What happened with Liverpool and van Dijk over the summer can only be described as a farce, and he will no doubt want to put in a good performance to kickstart what has been a rocky season for the Saints so far.

Firmino has had his fair share of detractors for the lack of goals he scores, but as he showed against West Ham, even when he is not scoring, he does so much positive work, on and off the ball, that it is hard to see a more important player in this system for Klopp.

If the system employed at West Ham continues, it is likely that Firmino will be employed as the slightly more withdrawn of two central attackers, and that will help his cause. If he is dropping deeper to gain possession, it means he will have the runs of Salah and Mane to keep feeding, and with Chamberlain showing at West Ham that he is blending in with the squad, there is no dearth of options.

For Firmino, it will be important that he doesn’t stay static or too passive, which he generally isn’t, in any case. With his movement, he will be able to shuttle van Dijk and Wes Hoedt about all over the pitch, and that will not be a pleasant scenario for Southampton to face. Ideally for Southampton, they would want to press the Liverpool back four in an attempt to make them go long to Firmino or Salah, in which case van Dijk can use his aerial ability to dominate, being as much bigger as he is than Firmino.

So, will van Dijk win over the fans that were, in all possibility, going to be singing his name at some point this season with another solid defensive performance? Or is he going to win them over by being as generous as he can, and send 50,000+ Scousers home happy?

MO SALAH v RYAN BERTRAND

Salah could start either on the right wing or through the middle, but it clear that the run he enjoys making is the one that starts on the right touchline and cutting in. The thing with Salah is that he times both the in-to-out and out-to-in runs really well, which means that he always leaves a defender guessing as to what his next move is going to be.

Bertrand is an experienced defender now, and has been one of the most consistent left-backs in the league for a few seasons now. So you’d think he’d know what to expect from Salah.

But the concern for Bertrand, as with so many other defenders is that it won’t too much of a blip to lose Salah and for him to be straight through on goal. The Egyptian’s pace means that a split-second’s loss of concentration will let him in.

12 goals in 17 appearances quantifies the impact that Salah has had on this Liverpool side, and in a front line ravaged by injuries and poor form, he has been the one true exception, with his output already world class, if not his overall play.

The King of Egypt needs just three more goals to be the highest scorer for Liverpool in a single season since Luis Suarez banged 31 in 2013-14. Can he do it on Saturday? Maybe not. But you really wouldn’t bet against it.

JOEL MATIP v MANOLO GABBIADINI

Gabbiadini was part of a nightmare during the international. A World Cup without Italy is like pizza without cheese, they said. Gabbiadini was part of the match that ensured no cheese was going on the pizza.

So the morale would undoubtedly be a bit low, but the truth is he was among Italy’s better performers on that wretched night in Milan, and he is exactly the type of player that Matip and the Croatian-who-must-not-be-named – who is likely to come back to the XI – could have problems with.

He is constantly in motion, very aware of his surroundings, has an excellent touch on him, and has a wand of a left foot. Perfect to spoil a comfortable Saturday afternoon then?

But Matip won’t be low on confidence going into this game. Liverpool have conceded one goal in three games since losing 4-1 to Spurs at Wembley, and the tangible switch in tactics from Jurgen Klopp has helped.

Matip will have an invigorated Joe Gomez for company and he’ll have the said Croatian too. But Gomez is still a kid and that other guy is just not good at the footie. So it is important that Matip ensures the entire defence is on the same page, because of the intelligence of Gabbiadini’s movement and the presence of players around him such as Soufiane Boufal and Dusan Tadic.

Also, this will probably be the first time Liverpool’s Player of the Month for October will start in November. Can he, for once, not make the fans who actually still back him look like fools? Who knows? Up the three-point Reds, though!

Liverpool v Southampton - Saints won't preach at Anfield

Anfield Index.com - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 12:31
The Details

Venue – Anfield, Liverpool

Referee – Mike Jones

Date & Time – Saturday, November 18th @ 15:00 BST

Current Odds – Liverpool 4/11, Draw 19/5, Southampton 7/1

Form Liverpool Form

Liverpool, thankfully, seem to be getting over their September and early-October nightmare and, Spurs result aside, have been returning to winning ways. The Reds have an 80% win record in their last five games a very impressive xG/xA record over that period, also (see table below). Much of this season has been played without Coutinho, Mané and Lallana. All three of those players are very close to returning and if Liverpool can avoid a similar lengthy injury-list for the rest of the season then things will really be looking up for Klopp and co.

Southampton Form

Southampton have been struggling lately. One win in their last six games tells its own story. Pellegrino seems to be focused on getting the defensive side of things sorted first of all. They have conceded 11 in 11, but only managed to score 9. They currently lie in 13th position but will be hoping that they can continue to cause problems for Klopp as they have since 2016.

Team News Liverpool Team News

Liverpool have not had it their way with regards to injuries so far this season. Mané returned from international duty early to have treatment on an ‘old injury’ as was reported. However, if rumours are to be believed, he is expected to make the starting eleven again on Saturday. Jordan Henderson is still a slight doubt but should return to his place in midfield after missing the win at West Ham.

Lallana is almost ready to return to the first-team squad but it will surely take him a month or six weeks to get back to full match fitness then.

There was also an update this week on Nathaniel Clyne’s back injury. He underwent surgery and is now out until February at least.

Lovren may return to the starting line-up after his mini-break following the disaster at Spurs. Gomez and Moreno have been impressive on either side while Emre Can and Wijnaldum, along with Henderson, has become the regular midfield trio for this campaign, so far. Coutinho should be available again but I expect him to take a place on the bench, ready to replace Mané after around 60 minutes.

No players are suspended for Liverpool.

Southampton Team News

The Saints’ only real injury worry is Mario Lemina and they will be hoping he can make a return after a two-game absence. He may well have to settle for a place on the bench, though. Virgil van Dijk will get to play at Anfield this season, unfortunately, it will be for Pellegrino’s side.

Pellegrino himself is sure to get a warm welcome after his short spell with the Reds during Rafa’s tenure.

When they last met

Southampton have had a hex over Liverpool in recent times. Not since the impressive 6-1 League Cup victory on the south coast in December 2015 have Klopp’s men managed to get a win over The Saints. In fact, the teams met four times last season and Liverpool failed to register a single goal in any of those games.

The last meeting was a dour 0-0 draw at Anfield in May as Liverpool were looking to secure Champions League qualification.

Prediction

Liverpool 2 – 0 Southampton

I think Liverpool will continue on their upward curve on Saturday. The team’s impressive Anfield defensive record looks set to continue, as well, considering Southampton have only managed 9 goals in their 11 league games so far this season. It should be another three points for the Reds in their quest to close the gap on the top four.

'Returning to Anfield will be very special... I'll always be grateful to LFC'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 12:25

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino acknowledges his return to Anfield on Saturday will be a special moment.

The Saints boss made 13 appearances for Liverpool as player during a five-month spell with the club in the Champions League-winning 2004-05 season.

Pellegrino later returned to Merseyside to work alongside Rafael Benitez as a first-team coach from 2008 for two years.

Now he will head back to Anfield in the opposition dugout when Liverpool take on Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

“It will be really, really special, and not just about football because I had been living there with my family, my children in the school, in the streets,” said the Pellegrino.

“It’s not just about football, it’s about the people and I have got good memories, I know the people that is working there. My only words is to be grateful.

“As a first experience in my life in England first of all as a player I think it was really good.

“I had good memories from this moment because we won the Champions League and I was in this group.

“After as a coach it was my first experience also to be in contact with professional players with Rafa Bentiez, and I can say I am really grateful for those days, for those times.”

“Everybody has got a price” – Mauricio Pellegrino admits uncertainty over Virgil van Dijk

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 12:02

ADVERTISING

Southampton manager Mauricio Pellegrino has admitted he can’t rule out the departure of Virgil van Dijk, as Liverpool consider an approach.


The Netherlands international was one of Jurgen Klopp‘s priority targets last summer, but the Reds’ efforts to secure a deal served to undermine them.

Forced to publicly end their interest in Van Dijk, Liverpool oversaw an embarrassing end to one of the most hopeful transfer sagas in recent seasons.

But it has been revealed that Fenway Sports Group president Mike Gordon has worked behind the scenes to repair the club’s relationship with Southampton in order to negotiate in the future.

And speaking ahead of the Saints’ trip to Anfield on Saturday, Pellegrino was reluctant to rule out a departure for Van Dijk or any of his players.

“You never know because the market when we talk about money everybody has got a price,” he told reporters.

ADVERTISING

“The budget to sign players, the biggest teams have got money to try to sign players.

“I can’t decide about that. This is a question for our owners. I can’t control the market.

“I cannot control the whisper about my player because we have got a lot of good players, and most of the teams want to sign them.

“The majority of the teams in Europe want to try to improve their squad and the market is huge now around the world, and information is enormous right now.

“We can’t control this and we have to be focussed.

“Right now Virgil is thinking about us but a lot of players are thinking about other clubs, we are thinking about maybe other players to try and bring here next year.

“Everybody is focussed on their area to try to bring the best players possible for our club. It is something that happens every single transfer window.”

Southampton's Virgil van Dijk celebrates scoring his side's first goal of the game during the Premier League match at St Mary's, Southampton.

There is nothing emphatic in Pellegrino’s statement, and the ex-Liverpool defender went on to say Van Dijk “is training well and thinking about the club.”

ADVERTISING

But it does open up the possibility of Liverpool making a renewed bid for the 26-year-old, with a £70 million valuation mooted.

Southampton have started the campaign poorly, and are 13th in the table ahead of Saturday’s trip to Merseyside, having taken 13 points from their first 11 games.

Van Dijk is beginning to hit form again at the heart of the defence, but whether he remains at St. Mary’s beyond the January transfer window remains to be seen.

Pellegrino seems to be leaving Van Dijk’s future in the hands of the Saints’ chairman, Ralph Krueger, as well as owners Jisheng Gao and Katharina Liebherr.

''World-class' Phil and Adam are so important to us'

LiverpoolFC TV - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 11:30
The impending returns of ‘world-class’ duo Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana are coming at the perfect time as Liverpool prepare for the busiest period of the season, Ragnar Klavan believes.

''World-class' Phil and Adam are so important to us'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 11:30

The impending returns of ‘world-class’ duo Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana are coming at the perfect time as Liverpool prepare for the busiest period of the season, Ragnar Klavan believes.

Coutinho was ruled out of the Reds’ last three games prior to the international break due to an adductor issue, but played nearly 70 minutes of Brazil’s 0-0 friendly draw against England on Tuesday.

Lallana, meanwhile, returned to full training this week having missed the entirety of the season so far with the thigh injury he sustained in early August.

Ready ⚽️

A post shared by Adam Lallana (@officiallallana) on Nov 15, 2017 at 9:50am PST

Saturday’s meeting with Southampton at Anfield represents the first of 13 fixtures on Liverpool’s calendar in a timeframe of just 44 days.

That prospect, coupled with the quality of the players in question, means Klavan is delighted that Coutinho and Lallana will soon be available again to Jürgen Klopp.

“It’s really important. They are really good, world-class players [so] to have them back, it’s really nice,” the centre-back told Liverpoolfc.com.

“We need the whole squad to go to this period where we play so many games, and sometimes you maybe need to rotate a little bit to bring fresh legs in.”

Klavan first experienced English football’s hectic winter schedule last year and feels that making the most of the reduced time the team have together at Melwood is crucial if they are to prosper between now and early January.

“There’s not much to prepare, I think it’s more about playing and recovery in this period of time and it’s for everybody to be in the best shape and those few training sessions we have before each game, we have to be there and listen to what the manager is saying,” the Estonia international explained.

“If you need to change something tactically, you have to always be there in training because sometimes you only have one decent session before you have to play again.”

The Reds head into this weekend’s clash with Southampton having scored 10 and conceded just once in their last three matches.

An improved level of defensive solidity has been evident since last month’s 4-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur, and Klavan thinks a collective effort is the main reason for that.

“I think we’ve been defending with the whole team. I think everybody is giving their all, their best, to defend and after that when we get the ball we are ready to go forward. I think, at least in my opinion, everybody is doing their defensive work really good,” he said.

Back-to-back 3-0 victories over Huddersfield Town and Maribor saw Liverpool score all six of their goals after half-time, and Klavan thinks patience could again be required against a Saints side he describes as ‘really good’.

“For sure, always you have to be patient even if in the first half you maybe have more ball possession but you’re not scoring, you still need to do the defensive work to keep the zero [clean sheet] behind,” he noted.

“We know we’re going to have at least a couple of chances in every game, so be patient and give it your best.”

North London derby, Rafa vs. Mourinho, Hodgson takes on Everton – Premier League Preview

ThisIsAnfield.com - Fri, 17/11/2017 - 10:00

ADVERTISING

The Premier League is back after the international break, and the action kicks off in intriguing fashion in north London.


It has been a long fortnight waiting for the internationals to be over, but we now have wall-to-wall domestic football to enjoy until March.

Liverpool thrashed West Ham 4-1 at the London Stadium in their last outing, and three points are to be expected at home to Southampton on Saturday.

Elsewhere two weeks ago, Man United were beaten by Chelsea and Man City dispatched of Arsenal, as Pep Guardiola’s side went eight points clear at the top of the table.

At the other end, Crystal Palace are still propping everyone else up, despite a spirited showing at Tottenham, and Swansea City and West Ham are also in the relegation zone following defeats.

There is some great action to look forward to this weekend – here are the best games to look out for away from the Reds’ visit of Saints.

North London derby promises much

There is a mouthwatering contest at the Emirates on Saturday lunchtime as Arsenal and Tottenham do battle in one of the fiercest fixtures in English football.

It is going to be very interesting to see who prevails, with Spurs undoubtedly the better team these days, but just one win coming at Arsenal since 1993.

For Liverpool fans, it’s one of those lovely win-win fixtures.

Arsenal often seem to turn up at home to their bitter rivals, much like Liverpool do against Everton, but many will be surprised if they win this weekend.

Spurs have more quality and balance everywhere you look, from Hugo Lloris and Toby Alderweireld right through to attacking stars such as Dele Alli and Harry Kane.

A defeat for the Gunners would crank up the pressure on Arsene Wenger, who continues to divide a fanbase like no other manager.

Both Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino would just about take a point apiece.

Can Rafa frustrate old foe Mourinho?

After a strong start to the season, albeit an overrated one, things have started to go wrong for Jose Mourinho at Man United.

The defeat away to Chelsea was yet another negative showing from United against a top-six side – Mourinho’s teams have scored just once in their last 10 ‘big’ away games – and supporters have started voicing their frustration.

On Saturday evening, Mourinho takes on old adversary Rafa Benitez at Old Trafford, in a rivalry that goes back to Liverpool and Chelsea‘s legendary duels during the mid-2000s.

Benitez’s Newcastle are ticking along without impressing greatly – the 1-0 loss at home to Bournemouth last time around was a really poor result – and they will be strong underdogs for the trip to United.

The hope is that Liverpool’s former manager produces a tactical masterclass and thwarts United – a repeat of the Reds’ 4-1 win at Old Trafford in 2009 would be even better.

It is hard not to see a home win, though.

It isn’t often that we root for a Roy Hodgson side to win, but that will be the case this weekend.

His Crystal Palace side welcome Everton to Selhurst Park, in a tussle that could already be important in the relegation battle.

Palace have started showing signs of improvement, in fairness, and the home crowd will ensure that this is a long afternoon for Liverpool’s local rivals.

Everton‘s 3-2 victory against Watford has taken some of the heat off both David Unsworth and the players, but defeat on Saturday would be a spirit-dampening result.

On Paper, Palace arguably look the stronger team at the moment, and you wouldn’t want to bet against them winning.

Testing away days for Man City and Chelsea

At some point soon, a team needs to stop Man City.

Guardiola’s heavily odds-on title favourites look a frightening proposition on current form – they have dropped just two points in 2017/18 – with opponents swatted aside in dismissive fashion.

Saturday’s trip to Leicester City should be one of their harder games of the season to date, with the Foxes capable of troubling anyone at home on their day.

The attacking depth the league leaders possess means they should pick up three more points, but you have a certain amount of faith in Leicester delivering.

Chelsea, meanwhile, take on West Brom at the Hawthorns, with the west Londoners buoyed by their deserved 1-0 win against United.

The Blues are inconsistent at the moment, however, and you would not be shocked if they came unstuck against a Tony Pulis side in need of points.

The Baggies are 16th in the table, having won just twice in the league, and Pulis is now under real pressure from the fans. Let’s hope they up their game.

Jurgen Klopp’s rotation conundrum and where Liverpool’s priorities are during busy run of games

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 23:30

With the last international break of the year over, it’s time for a key run of games—but should Liverpool’s priorities lie in the league or in Europe?


It’s easy to suggest that the Reds should be competitive in both competitions, but when the matches come thick and fast between now and Christmas, decisions might have to be made.

Which competition should key players be rested in? How many changes on the road or at home? What’s the most important aspect for the season: progression in Europe or remaining competitive in England?

We’ve spoken to four Reds fans to gauge opinion and see where the preferences should lie for Jurgen Klopp; taking part this time are Anfield Index contributor Leanne Prescott, sports radio producer Scott Taylor, commercial analyst Mike Fisher and journalist Karl Matchett.
 

Changing priorities

TIA: At the start of the campaign, was your preference for LFC to push on in the Premier League and finish higher than last season, or to make the most of being in the Champions League and go as far as possible? How has that changed at this point given how the season has unfolded so far?

LP: My preference was always the league and ensuring that we retained a top-four spot to cement a regular place back in the Champions League.

It’s brilliant to be back in the competition but we’ll only really see the full effects of it in terms of incomings if we’re involved season after season. That being said, having got such a favourable group, advancing to the knockout stages should be the bare minimum.

ST: As good as the Champions League is for your club, one of Liverpool’s stature is expected to qualify for the knockout stages of the competition, so the preference was to do well in the Premier League.

Over recent seasons, it has become one of the most competitive leagues in the world; six teams are fighting for four spots so earning qualification is crucial.

Over the course of the season, these preferences have only strengthened.

MF: At the start of the season I was hoping for a kick-on in the league, ideally being at least involved in the title race conversation until relatively late on, and then a minimum of getting out of the group stage in Europe.

Klopp has shown he is a gradual builder of teams, so Champions League participation next year just feels crucial to the stability of the project.

Whilst we don’t currently know what our pull in the transfer market would be without it, gut feel says we need it to continue the positive momentum.
