Jurgen Klopp rules Naby Keita out of Everton clash with groin injury

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 01/02/2020 - 22:57

Jurgen Klopp has ruled Naby Keita out of Sunday’s FA Cup clash with Everton, after he picked up a groin injury before Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Sheffield United.


Keita was forced out of the starting lineup after he picked up the issue warming up at Anfield, with James Milner taking his place in the side and Neco Williams on the bench.

The Guinean joins Joel Matip, Fabinho, Dejan Lovren, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri on an ever-growing injury list, and serves as another blow to the Reds.

Having found a strong run of form of late, it is a bitter setback for Keita, and Klopp described it as “not too cool” as he confirmed he would not be considered for the third-round tie.

“I don’t know exactly what he has, it was the groin, but I can say already that he will not be involved against Everton,” he told This Is Anfield in his post-match press conference.

“That makes it 12 adult players that we have, plus the kids. That’s not cool, we cannot change it any more.

“No clue how it happened, I think it was the last shot in warming up when he felt something. He came in and was limping.

“Everybody who has played football has had this kind of injury, and that’s not nice, it’s painful.

“I don’t know exactly what it is, or how long it will take, but I can say already he will not be ready for Sunday.”

Klopp is expected to make a host of changes for the FA Cup this weekend, with the priority being the Premier League, but while he conceded he would call upon “fresh legs,” he gave no indication of the extent of his rotation.

“What I will not do is tell Carlo Ancelotti the lineup tonight,” he said.

“But I will do what I think is right. Some things I can decide by myself—I will—and some things the medical department will tell me.

“So that means I don’t know in this moment what the lineup will be, but it will be the best possible for us in this moment.

“For this game, as you can imagine, I’m pretty sure that Carlo will not make a lot of changes—having the opportunity to win at Anfield, which didn’t happen for a few years, that’s another big chance.

“But we will have fresh legs, and what we need is support, because the only advantage—they played yesterday, we played today—is Anfield.

“We need support from the first second, and we will see how it will be.

“But it was a tough game tonight, and we have to make sure that we make the right decisions.”

Naby Keita injury update

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 01/02/2020 - 22:40

Liverpool are waiting to discover the extent of an injury Naby Keita sustained prior to the 2-0 win over Sheffield United, but Jürgen Klopp has confirmed he will not be available to face Everton this weekend.

The midfielder was named in the starting line-up for the encounter with the Blades, but suffered a groin problem while preparing for kick off in the pre-match warm-up and was replaced by James Milner in the XI.

Keita will now undergo further assessment with the club’s medical team to determine the severity of the issue, but Klopp has ruled him out of Sunday’s FA Cup third-round fixture with the Blues.

The manager said: “I don't know exactly what he has – it was the groin - but I can say already he will not be involved against Everton.

“That makes it 12 adult players we have [available], plus the kids, so that's not cool, but we cannot change it.

“I have no clue how it happened, I think it was the last shot in the warm-up when he felt something. He came in [the dressing room] and was limping.

“Everybody who has played football has had this kind of injury and it’s not nice, it’s painful. I don't know exactly what it is or how long it will take, but I can say already he will not be ready for Sunday.”

Match report: Salah and Mane strike as Liverpool begin 2020 with a win

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 01/02/2020 - 21:53

Liverpool kicked off 2020 with a win as goals from Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane secured a 2-0 result against Sheffield United at Anfield.

Salah’s fourth-minute strike gave the Premier League leaders a perfect start to the New Year, but their general dominance of the contest did not yield another until midway through the second half.

Mane provided it, beating Dean Henderson at the second attempt to bank a 19th victory from 20 league games for Jürgen Klopp’s team this season.

They therefore restored a 13-point advantage at the top of the Premier League, having played one game fewer than closest rivals Leicester City and Manchester City.

Team news

Klopp’s teamsheet showed one change from Sunday’s win over Wolverhampton Wanderers as Naby Keita replaced Adam Lallana in central midfield.

But a late change after the warm-up saw Keita withdraw and James Milner take his spot in the starting XI. Nathaniel Phillips was among the substitutes following his return from a loan at Stuttgart.

First half

The wait for a first goal in 2020 did not last long. Four minutes, to be precise.

Virgil van Dijk’s lofted pass down the left flank released Andy Robertson, who, aided by the slip of George Baldock, had time and space to guide a cross into the middle for Salah to tuck past Henderson.

David McGoldrick drew a careful save from Alisson Becker – making his 50th Premier League appearance – soon after play was restarted, his half-volley from the edge of the box well struck.

Henderson then produced an outstanding stop at the other end; Salah’s first-time, rising sweep from Jordan Henderson’s clever clip into the box was on course for the roof of the net until the United No.1’s fingertips pushed the ball over.

Georginio Wijnaldum aimed for the same region of the goal with 19 on the clock but was narrowly off target after exchanging passes with Mane and stepping inside John Fleck in the area.

Another Henderson save denied Liverpool a second on the half-hour.

From Trent Alexander-Arnold’s knock over the top, Mane cutely flicked the ball back into a supporting run from Salah and the Egyptian’s strike on the run was punched away by the Blades ‘keeper.

Despite the hosts’ ascendancy for the most part, United’s threat on the counter was apparent – and Van Dijk had to time a tackle perfectly on Lys Mousset to quell an attack that saw the visitors outnumber the Reds in the final minute of the half.

Second half

After a slow start to the second half, Roberto Firmino went direct with a thumping curler from the left edge of the box that whistled inches wide of the far post.

Next, with an hour gone, Salah hit the opposite frame of the United goal.

The forward’s attempted cross into the middle for Van Dijk evaded the Reds man and the defence, drifted against the left post and was scooped away off the goalline by Henderson.

Pressure finally told four minutes later, though.

Mane stretched his legs in the left channel and lofted a pass into the ‘D’ which Salah controlled and rolled back into the area for his teammate’s run. Henderson blocked the first shot but was helpless to prevent Mane from firing in the rebound and establishing a cushion.

With the tension eased, the Reds went after more goals; Firmino’s close-range chance was deflected away yards out, Salah’s driven follow-up palmed wide, and Mane’s blast beaten out on the other side.

But 2-0 was enough for Liverpool to pass their latest Premier League examination – Alisson catching a late chance for Oliver McBurnie on the goalline – as Klopp’s men continue to set a relentless pace at the summit.

Report and highlights as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane extend Liverpool's unbeaten run to 37 games - 12 short of Invincible's record 49-game run

Liverpool restored their 13-point lead at the top of the Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United that guarantees Jurgen Klopp's side an unbeaten calendar year in the top flight.

The runaway leaders last lost a league game at champions Manchester City on January 3, 2019, but Sheffield United's hopes of ending that run were extinguished by goals in either half by Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

An imperious performance secured Liverpool's 19th victory of the season and stretched their unbeaten run in the Premier League to 37 games - 12 short of Arsenal's 49-game record - as the Reds marched on towards a first league title in 30 years.

The Blades, meanwhile, remain eighth in the table, seven points adrift from the top four after slipping to back-to-back league defeats for the first time since the opening two games of last season's Championship.

Player ratings

Liverpool: Alisson (6), Alexander-Arnold (7), Gomez (7), Van Dijk (7), Robertson (8), Henderson (7), Wijnaldum (7), Milner (7), Salah (8), Firmino (6), Mane (8).

Subs: Origi (6), Lallana (n/a), Elliott (n/a).

Sheffield Utd: Henderson (7), Basham (7), Egan (6), O’Connell (6), Baldock (5), Lundstram (6), Norwood (5), Fleck (6), Stevens (6), Mousset (5), McGoldrick (5).

Subs: McBurnie (4), Sharp (6), Besic (6).

Man of the Match: Sadio Mane

How Liverpool sealed unbeaten year

Liverpool were forced into a late change after Naby Keita injured himself in the warm-up, but it was going to take more than that to derail the Reds. James Milner slotted straight into the starting line-up and, within four minutes of kick-off, the hosts had the lead.

An unfortunate slip from full-back George Baldock allowed Virgil van Dijk's searching diagonal to reach Andrew Robertson in behind the advanced Sheffield United defence, and the Scot crossed for the unmarked Salah to slot his 13th goal of the season.

  • Naby Keita replaced Adam Lallana in Liverpool’s only change from their victory over Wolves but was injured in the warm-up, with James Milner a late call-up to the starting XI
  • John Lundstram and David McGoldrick returned as Sheffield United made two changes from the defeat at Man City.

Sheffield United's game plan may have gone out of the window no sooner after the game had started, but Chris Wilder's side rallied and could have been level within four minutes of that setback as John Lundstram's volley flashed wide before David McGoldrick stung Alisson Becker's palms with a rasping volley.

But from there on it was all Liverpool, who were denied a spectacular second on 11 minutes when Salah's fierce drive was tipped over the bar by goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Henderson, whose goalkeeping howler gifted Liverpool victory in September's reverse fixture, was on a one-man crusade to prevent the Reds from stretching further clear before the break as Salah's drive on the half hour was punched clear.

You have to go back to December 2009 for the last time Liverpool lost a home league game after leading at half-time, and the Reds were in no mood to buck a trend that had spanned three decades as their dominance continued after the break.

Liverpool should have had a third within two minutes of the restart but Robertson's inviting delivery into the box somehow evaded Van Dijk and Mane.

Liverpool went even closer on the hour as time stood still in the Sheffield United area. Salah's in-swinging cross cannoned against the post, rolled agonisingly across the goal line and into the arms of a relieved Henderson, who gathered before further damage could be inflicted.

But, four minutes later, the Blades' defences were breached for a second time. Alisson launched Liverpool away on a devastating counter which ended with Mane playing a one-two with Salah to get through on goal where he rifled a rebound into the roof of the net after Henderson had saved his initial effort.

Henderson denied Salah a second with a smothering save on 69 minutes before a gilt-edged miss from Oli McBurnie summed up a frustrating outing for Sheffield United at the end of the gruelling festive schedule.

58 - Liverpool have accumulated 58 points from their 20 Premier League games this season; in English top-flight history, only Manchester City in 2017-18 (also 58) have had as many points at this stage of a campaign (assuming three points for a win all-time). Rolling. pic.twitter.com/NiTiYK4q5r

— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) January 2, 2020 Stats: Liverpool march on
  • Liverpool scored in their 29th consecutive game in the Premier League; only two teams have ever recorded a longer scoring streak in the competition - Arsenal between 2001 and 2002 (55) and Manchester United between 2007 and 2008 (36).
  • Since the start of last season, only his Liverpool teammate Trent Alexander-Arnold (20) has more Premier League assists than Andy Robertson (17).
  • Alisson made his 50th Premier League appearance for Liverpool and kept his 26th clean sheet; among goalkeepers in the competition's history, only Petr Cech (33) and Pepe Reina (28) kept more shutouts in their opening 50 starts than the Brazilian.
Anaylsis: Could Liverpool match the Invincibles?

Sky Sports' Nick Wright:

'Klopp has repeatedly ruled out the possibility of replicating Arsenal's Invincibles but the comparisons are inevitable when Liverpool continue to produce performances and results of such a relentlessly high level.

'The Reds are actually averaging more points per game than the Invincibles. They are scoring more goals and conceding fewer. So could they go on and match them?'

What the managers said…

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: "We played in the exact way you have to play against Sheffield United. I don't think there were a lot of game like this against Sheffield United in the last year. That was the best thing the boys did, they didn't let them get anything out of the game, which is really difficult. It's an intense period of the year but in terms of an overall performance it was as good as anything, really, really good. That makes me happy."

1:02 Jurgen Klopp admits it's an 'intense period' and that his Liverpool players - and himself - will be happy to be in bed following another win in the Premier League. Jurgen Klopp admits it's an 'intense period' and that his Liverpool players - and himself - will be happy to be in bed following another win in the Premier League.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder: "You just look at the appetite and the desire of everybody around the football club, it's got a feeling of a relentlessness about them and the supporters as well, the way they drive their players on. They realise what a huge, important season it is and a fantastic position they're in. It'd be a very brave man to bet against them being the champions of this division."

Man of the Match - Sadio Mane

25 - Sadio Mané has scored 25 Premier League goals at Anfield since the start of last season - across the top five European leagues, the only two players with more at a specific venue are Lionel Messi (29 at the Camp Nou) and Kylian Mbappé (27 at the Parc des Princes).

Sadio Mane's goal was his 100th goal involvement for Liverpool in his 151st appearance in all competitions for the club (74 goals, 26 assists). Mane has scored 25 Premier League goals at Anfield since the start of last season.

What's next?

The third round of the FA Cup sees Liverpool host Merseyside rivals Everton on Sunday at 4.01pm, while Sheffield United host non-league Fylde earlier that day at 2.01pm.

Liverpool monitor Norwich duo as they consider double swoop

HEAD NEWS - Thu, 01/02/2020 - 13:54

Liverpool are reportedly keeping close watch on Norwich duo Emiliano Buendia and Jamal Lewis with a view to a double transfer.

The pair have been regular performers for their side in the Canaries' first season back in the Premier League.

As reported by the Athletic, Liverpool are keen on both players and are considering a move in the summer.

Left-back Lewis, 21, is seen as a potential back-up to current first-choice Andy Robertson, with midfielder James Milner the current go-to deputy in the Scot's absence.

Buendia meanwhile has attracted attention for his creativity, having provided more chances than any other player in the top flight, apart from Man City's Kevin de Bruyne.

The Argentine has also racked up the second highest number of assists - again behind de Bruyne - setting up seven goals for his team.

His impressive start to his debut season in the Premier League comes off the back of a solid showing in the Championship last year, where he notched eight goals and 17 assists.

The 23-year-old only joined Norwich in 2018, having cut his cloth at Spanish La Liga outfit Getafe.

Norwich have no interest in selling either player in the midst of their relegation battle, but could have their hand forced if they fail to beat the drop come May.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has also all-but ruled out any further business for the Reds in January, having already added Takumi Minamino to their squad from RB Salzburg.

Klopp said: "Every year we have the same situation. It is always tricky – we will probably not be too busy.

“We will see what happens, but it is not likely.”

One man who could be on the move however is former Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge, who has been linked with a switch to Aston Villa just six months after departing Anfield for Turkish side Trabzonspor.

Ref Watch: VAR wrong to overturn Cresswell red

Former Premier League referee

Dermot Gallagher: "I was surprised [Cresswell's tackle] was overturned. I think it's a red card. There's speed and intent. Cresswell has little or no chance of getting the ball"

After another VAR-dominated matchday, Dermot Gallagher returns with Ref Watch to give his verdict on all the key decisions.

West Ham 4-0 Bournemouth

INCIDENT: Aaron Cresswell was shown a straight red for a studs-up, high challenge on Ryan Fraser which left him in serious pain - but VAR official Lee Mason overturned the decision and downgraded the card to yellow.

DERMOT SAYS: I was surprised this was overturned. I think it's a red card. There's speed and intent. Cresswell has little or no chance of getting the ball. He's endangered the safety of an opponent. However, the VAR deemed that the initial point of contact wasn't dangerous.

INCIDENT: After a busy festive season for VAR, it was at the forefront once again as Jack Grealish's 12th-minute header was ruled out for offside. A lengthy pause ensued after Grealish headed home Ezri Konsa's excellent cross and the goal was eventually disallowed because Wesley's heel was deemed to be in an offside position in the build-up.

DERMOT SAYS: The problem is everyone is demanding for everything to be 100 per cent accurate. Was it the same phase of play? That's a subjective call and the VAR looking at it thought it was. When James Tarkowski clears the ball it comes off a Burnley player and comes straight back - that was in a matter of five or six seconds. They thought Wesley was offside at the start of the move so that's why it was given offside. What it does show is how fine the margins were and how accurate the assistant referees were. They were doing this with the naked eye. When you have to see the line like it is, you realise how difficult it was for assistant referees.

INCIDENT: Wilfried Zaha's fizzed cross was directed into the net by Conor Wickham, whose last Premier League goal came against Manchester City in November 2016. The substitute's celebrations were made to wait after he was initially flagged offside, but replays showed a defender had fractionally played him on and the goal was given.

DERMOT SAYS: I can understand at the speed of the play why the assistant has come to that decision. But when you freeze-frame it, he's just onside. This is where the VAR has worked perfectly. Last season this goal would have been disallowed.

INCIDENT: Christian Kabasele got his marching orders after VAR deemed the Watford defender was the last man when bringing down Diogo Jota on the edge of the box. Originally, the on-field decision was for just a yellow card as Craig Cathcart looked to be covering.

DERMOT SAYS: I think there isn't cover in behind Kabasele when the foul is made and at that point, Cathcart is too far away. Jota could have had a shot on goal. The VAR would have asked whether the attacker would have the opportunity to shoot at goal and the answer definitely is yes. This is another great example of VAR as the on-field referee wouldn't have seen what the replays show.
