Liverpool's attack vs. Southampton's defence will be fascinating - The view from Southampton - This Is Anfield

ADVERTISING

How Southampton‘s defence deals with Liverpool’s blistering attack is likely to be key this weekend, according to Saints writer Richard Brereton.


Southampton head to Anfield on a good run of form against the Reds, with victory avoided and no goals conceded in four separate games against us last season.

Former Liverpool defender Mauricio Pellegrino has not made a great start to life at St Mary’s, though, and goals have been hard to come by. It’s just nine in 11 Premier League games for them.

It should be an interesting game, but one that Jurgen Klopp will feel is a must-win in his side’s quest for a top-four finish.

Ahead of the match, we had a chat with Southampton fan and writer Richard (@RichardBrer) to get his thoughts on Saints, Liverpool, Virgil van Dijk and Saturday’s clash.

Southampton sit 13th in the Premier League – how happy are you with your start to the season?

It can only be described as a disappointing start so far. We have had an easy fixture list yet sit in the bottom-half of the table.

There have been some positive signs from our general play in games, but there are still far too many frustrating and negative passages of play.

Saints have some big fixtures coming up in the next month, and a continuation of this indifferent form would leave us in an uncomfortable position going into the second-half of the season.

How has former Liverpool man Mauricio Pellegrino done so far? There have been murmurs about a lack of entertainment value from some.

It’s a difficult one. If you look at him in press conferences and the way that he articulates his ideas and passion to the fans, then you would have to say he has made a positive start.

One of the big criticisms of Claude Puel was that he failed to articulate his ideas to the fanbase. Pellegrino has talked about the need to re-define Southampton’s footballing identity which had been lost under Puel, but we haven’t seen too many signs of it happening yet.

ADVERTISING

A big criticism among the fanbase has been that it looks like Pellegrino doesn’t have a defined plan or approach. I would counter that slightly, as he is still new and figuring out how different players suit different systems, and I envisage him settling pretty soon on a couple of different tactical options that will be used going forward.

 Simon Galloway/PA Wire. RESTRICTIONS: EDITORIAL USE ONLY No use with unauthorised audio, video, data, fixture lists, club/league logos or "live" services. Online in-match use limited to 75 images, no video emulation. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

Those different options would all be based on one particular style. The criticism of the entertainment value is a difficult issue. In order for mid-table clubs to be successful they need to be relatively pragmatic.

We have seen from many sides in the past the perils of being too open in the Premier League, unless you are an elite side made up of some of the best players in the world, so clubs have to balance this pragmatism against the desires of fans who are being asked to pay ever-increasing sums for tickets.

Saints are not the only club facing this crisis – West Ham, West Brom, Everton and Stoke City are all established mid-table sides whose fans are discontented.

Who have been Saints’ three best players so far this season, and why?

This is a really difficult question as the majority of Saints players have been either inconsistent or mediocre so far this season.

The one player who has undoubtedly been one of the best so far is new-signing Mario Lemina. He is strong defensively, deceptively good in possession, carries the ball forwards with purpose and has an underappreciated range of passing. (Editor: He’s also ruled out of this game, nice one!)

The second player that I’ll go for is Maya Yoshida. This is a strange one as new signing Wesley Hoedt is technically a better player, but has generally found himself on the bench while the Japanese partners Virgil van Dijk.

Yoshida has shown over the last year that he is dedicated and committed to Saints, which in turn means that he generally performs at a high level whenever selected.

Lastly, I will go for Manolo Gabbiadini, who despite being completely isolated in many of Saints’ games so far, is the top scorer this season with three goals – one of those was a stunning effort against Newcastle – at an average of one every 222 minutes. If he’d had the right service he could have scored a few more.

The Italian has been left out of the starting line-up a few times this season, which is baffling considering that he and Charlie Austin (who himself has only played 103 minutes) are the club’s best goalscorers.

We’re on ‘Virgil van Dijk watch’ for obvious reasons – how has he fared?

Since returning from his enforced exile from the squad, his performances have steadily improved week by week.

ADVERTISING

It was pretty clear from his first few appearances that he was very rusty having not played since January – a number of errors in the first few games were caused by him still being a bit flat-footed, rather than petulance.

Virgil van Dijk

As I mentioned earlier, Saints have been fairly poor recently, but Van Dijk has been one of the better players over the last few games.

What have you made of Liverpool’s start to 2017/18? Par for the course or under-performing?

It’s been fairly par for the course. There were the standard noises in pre-season of Liverpool’s chances to kick on following the top-four finish last year, but I’d argue that Liverpool are the fifth or sixth best team in the league.

Jurgen Klopp has clearly assembled a formidable group of attacking players, but his failure to address the issues in goal, defence and defensive midfield have jeopardised Liverpool’s chances of making ground up against the likes of Spurs and the two Manchester clubs.

Chelsea have had their problems so far this season, but they still have more quality throughout different positions in the squad than Liverpool.

If you could put one Reds player in the Southampton team, who would it be, and why?

ADVERTISING

This is a really hard choice between Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho, but I will go for Mane.

Saints lack creativity in attacking midfield and Coutinho would be fantastic at addressing that, but our biggest weakness is our lack of pace and directness in attack.

Southampton’s attacking problems of last season and the start of this one are a direct result of the club’s failure to adequately replace Mane.

Salah has had a fantastic start to his Liverpool career, but I would take Mane over him due to latter’s existing affinity with the club and fanbase.

Looking ahead to Saturday’s game, where do you see the key battles taking place?

It will be fascinating to see Liverpool’s array of attacking talent face off against our defenders.

Van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand have been touted with moves away and they will want to show the big clubs how good they are against top attackers.

Aside from that, the midfield battle will be crucial. Whichever team can dictate the dynamic of the game in that area will have the foundations to stretch the opposition defence.

Finally, hit me with your prediction……

All logic suggests that it will be a Liverpool victory, but I have to cling on to some sort of hope.

I will go for a smash-and-grab 1-0 win for Saints.

Joe Gomez goes from Lancashire Senior cup to international debut – next stop World Cup?

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 22:00

ADVERTISING

In the last 12 months Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has gone from playing Burnley in the Lancashire Senior Cup to keeping world-record signing Neymar quiet on his full England debut.


The 20-year-old was man of the match in this week’s friendly against Brazil on Tuesday, a deserved reward for the work he has put in over the last year having fought back after 13 months out after cruciate knee ligament surgery.

Gomez’s career has been on an upward curve since that comeback game for Liverpool’s under-23s last November, having been named captain of England Under-21s in the summer and then established himself in Jurgen Klopp‘s side this season which led to his unexpected England bow.

To his credit instead of trying to rush himself back into the first team he spent the second half of last season working on his fitness and playing matches for the under-23s and it was a tactic which paid off.

“We’re here to facilitate the first team and the first-team players that maybe need game-time or are coming back from injury,” said current Liverpool Under-23 manager Neil Critchley, whose side host Everton in the mini-Merseyside derby at Tranmere’s Prenton Park on Saturday night.

“I think Joe was in that bracket last season. Speaking to all the staff and seeing him from afar on the other side of the pitch everyone was really impressed with him as a boy just as much they were as a player.

ADVERTISING

“I think you can see that when he’s doing these interviews after the Brazil game and he’s such a level-headed young man. He wants to improve. He’s got that hunger to get better.

“It was a fantastic performance from him. I think we’ve played a really tiny part in that. It’s all down to Joe and himself in his own development.

“He’s very mature for his age mentally it seems. He ticks a lot of boxes, doesn’t he? You’ve just got to look at his all-round game.

“Probably the one thing that he hasn’t got is experience but if he keeps performing like he does on Tuesday night then the experience will come very quickly because he’ll be playing for Liverpool and England.

“I think Joe now has gone well past us (the under-23s), hasn’t he? His ambitions and aspirations will be getting into our first team, staying in our first team and possibly now going to the World Cup – and rightly so.”

Liverpool FC can now reveal the unique Dream Scene artwork commissioned to celebrate the club's 125th anniversary year and offer fans a chance to get their hands on copy.

Young fan Joseph Thurston was selected to appear in the Dream Scene through a competition run via the club’s junior Membership. Joseph appears in the painting alongside his LFC heroes representing the next generation of supporters and the future of the club.

Watch: Jamie Cooper tells the story behind the LFC Dream Scene

The painting also offers keen-eyed supporters a number of subtle nods to key figures and significant events in LFC’s history through the inclusion of symbolic items and references.

The Dream Scene was revealed at an exclusive event at the club’s Anfield store this evening, attended by club legends and family representatives of those captured within the painting.

It will be on display in the Anfield store from Saturday November 17 until the end of the season. Artist Jamie Cooper will be in the club’s Anfield store ahead of the LFC v Southampton fixture on Saturday November 18 from from 11am to 1pm to discuss the painting with fans.

Sadio Mane returns to full training ahead of Liverpool vs. Southampton

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 21:06

ADVERTISING

Liverpool winger Sadio Mane is set to be available for Saturday’s clash with former club Southampton, after returning to full training on Thursday.


The 25-year-old made his way back from Senegal duty midway through the November break as a precaution following his hamstring injury last month.

This cast doubt over Mane’s fitness as Liverpool prepare to take on the Saints in the Premier League, and he did not take part in training at Melwood on Wednesday.

But with Jurgen Klopp himself returning to take Thursday’s session after a short illness, the German was given a major lift as Mane was passed fit.

The Liverpool Echo report that the ex-Southampton star joined Jordan Henderson and Adam Lallana out of the treatment room and onto the field, as Klopp oversaw training.

Kamil Grabara, Alberto Moreno, Emre Can, Georginio Wijnaldum and Marko Grujic also made their way back to West Derby, as the final players to return from international duty.

ADVERTISING

This means Klopp’s only injury concern ahead of Saturday is Nathaniel Clyne, with the right-back sidelined until February with a back problem.

Clyne underwent surgery on Monday, and is expected to make his comeback during next year’s run-in.

Mane’s availability raises an interesting, but positive, quandary for Klopp as he plots for only his second victory in eight games against Southampton.

The No. 19 is one of Klopp’s key players, and has formed a strong unit with Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, but both Lallana and Philippe Coutinho will be hoping to feature too.

Elsewhere, while Emre Can and Georginio Wijnaldum shone in midfield in the Reds’ 4-1 win at West Ham last time out, it is likely that Henderson, as Klopp’s captain, will return.

And this is overlooking to possibility of leaving out an in-form Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, whose performance at the London Stadium does not warrant dropping back onto the bench.

Meanwhile, Daniel Sturridge and Dominic Solanke are other viable options up front, with the latter impressing on his England debut on Tuesday night.

Klopp is now blessed with a plethora of quality in both midfield and attack, and he is likely to be able to name one of the strongest substitutes’ benches in Liverpool’s recent history.

ADVERTISING

That this leaves out the likes of Grujic and Ben Woodburn, too, further highlights this.

But given Liverpool play 13 times in his 45 days from Saturday, the 50-year-old will need to rotate, and call upon his strong squad ranks, to survive.

Jürgen Klopp returned to Melwood on Thursday to take the day's training session as Liverpool's preparations for Southampton continued - and our photographers were on hand to capture the workout.

The boss missed Wednesday's drills as he attended a hospital appointment as a precautionary measure after feeling ill.

However, Klopp was back out on the training pitches in West Derby this afternoon to oversee the Reds being put through their paces ahead of Saturday's encounter with the Saints.

“The satisfaction was for everybody” – Kenny Dalglish talks trials, tribulations, success and Knighthoods

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 19:28

There is nobody who has given more to Liverpool Football Club than Kenny Dalglish. This week we sat down with the King to discuss his 16 years as player, player-manager, and manager of the Reds.


A poignant and emotional film about Dalglish’s incredible life premiered at FACT picturehouse in Liverpool on Wednesday night, with a host of former players, celebrities and current Reds in attendance to see what is a truly superb feature-length documentary.

We had the honour to see a preview screening, then sit down with Kenny to discuss the film and much more.

Early days

In the film and in life, Kenny comes across as a pragmatic man who made decisions not always for himself but often with the best interests of football and the football club he served. Speaking of his early decision to sign for Celtic despite being a Rangers fan – even living overlooking Rangers’ Ibrox training ground – he says it was “easy.”

If you look up synonyms for the word pragmatic you get down-to-earth, efficient, hardheaded, logical, practical, realistic and matter-of-fact. It’s fair to say those words pretty well describe Dalglish’s life and attitude.

ADVERTISING

“Football was more important than who you supported. They were the best team at that time, so it wasn’t a problem,” he explained.

Dalglish signed for Celtic aged 16 and joined Liverpool 10 years later in 1977, as a direct replacement for Kevin Keegan. But it could all have been much different, with Kenny explaining how he had a trial at Melwood when he was 15:

“They used to have trials at Melwood – you could write in! – on a Tuesday and Thursday night during the summer.

“I remember training during the day and playing against Southport B. Shanks and Reuben Bennett gave me a lift to the YMCA and said “we’d like you to sign”.

“There was an Old Firm game on that night and I wanted to get back to watch it. We got the train from Lime Street and then the scout came up and asked me to sign.

“Liverpool is a long way from Glasgow when you’re 15, so I was a bit shy and never signed.”

He did, of course, sign for the Reds and go on to make 515 appearances for the club, scoring 172 goals, winning nine league titles and three European Cups. “I was lucky, not too many people get asked twice!”

ADVERTISING

‘For everybody’

Two of Dalglish’s most memorable goals are ones that won trophies for the club – the first, to win the European Cup against Bruges in his first season at Liverpool, and the second to win the league title on the final day of the season in his first season in charge as player-manager.

Asked which one gave him most satisfaction, he provided a typically selfless reply: “The satisfaction wasn’t personal, the satisfaction was for everybody.

“When you scored you wanted to share it with everybody – teammates, supporters, the whole lot.

“For me, any goal that meant anything – every goal means something – was only a culmination of fantastic work throughout the whole year, when a lot of other people have contributed.”

It’s a quote which you could easily attribute to the great socialist Bill Shankly and is echoed when discussing the change from being player to all of a sudden player-manager.

“Getting away from the dressing room was difficult when I stepped into being manager, but the club gave me all the help I could possibly get,” Dalglish explained.

“I had the best administrator in football that there has ever been, Peter Robinson, and Tom Saunders, Ronnie Moran and Roy Evans.

“If somebody asked a question you’d confer with them. You were surrounded by help.

“There would be difficult decisions as player-manager, but I wouldn’t make them without the guidance of Ronnie, Roy and Tom.”

ADVERTISING

Adversity

The strong-willed Glaswegian found himself at the centre of two of football’s biggest tragedies, Heysel and Hillsborough.

Made player-manager the day after Heysel and as manager at Hillsborough, Dalglish steered the club through the two toughest times in Liverpool’s 125-year history.

Many supporters have often pondered how Dalglish’s team of 1988, featuring John Barnes and Peter Beardsley, may have fared in Europe.

“We’ll never know will we. Maybe we were that good because we weren’t in Europe?”

“We started in August/September and only had three rounds before Christmas. And then it was March before starting again… maybe we’ll have done alright,” he adds with a grin.

“Irrespective of whether we were in Europe or not, it was a fantastic team. Really entertaining.

“The performance against Nottingham Forest, and against QPR when they were top of the league and we beat them 4-0 – Barnsey was toast. He was unbelievable.

“Peter could bang ‘em in. All types of goals for the team. Aldo too, the DNA was perfect for him. Loads of crosses. Plenty of touches off. Good goals.

“I don’t know how we’d have done, it would have been interesting to see. We need to get, what do you call it, Playstation, and see how we’d get on!”

Club before self

Quite a lot of the film highlights the emotional stress Dalglish was under post-Hillsborough and he explains how he came to the decision to quit in February 1991, handing in his resignation the day after a 4-4 FA Cup fifth round tie at Goodison Park.

The decision to resign had been made before the game, with Kenny finding footballing decisions difficult to make: “I would say I wasn’t capable of making a decision. I wasn’t decisive enough.

“At least I could make a decision that it wasn’t fair on the football club. For me, it was more disappointment in myself, that I had to go. But I don’t think the football club deserved me then.”

Press Conference - Kenny Dalglish

Again, the club was put before himself.

ADVERTISING

The question is asked then whether there are any regrets that the club didn’t give him a period of time to recuperate?

“How can they give you a period of time during the season? Everybody has got hindsight. And I knew, what, two months afterwards, that it was a stupid decision.

“But at the time it wasn’t stupid. At the time it was correct. For the club. And for me.”

Does he wish that could have done what Ian Rush did and come back a year later?

“Rushie came back to a substitute’s role, didn’t he?” he jokes.

“You cannot wish your life away. How many people have been as fortunate as I’ve been? Along the way, there’s bound to be some hiccups. And you’ve just got to get over them.

“I don’t think I’ve been dealt too bad a hand.”

Finally, the question of whether he’d ever been offered a Knighthood saw Kenny provide another example of his selfless nature, opting instead to question why Bob Paisley never received one.

“It’s never been a consideration,” he says of the Knighthood.

Would he, though, like to have ‘The Sir Kenny Dalglish Stand’ – like Sir Alex Ferguson, a friend of his despite the rivalry, has at Old Trafford.

“I would. But he got one, and Bobby Charlton got one. Old Bob never got one. I’m not saying they aren’t deserving of it, but why did it not come along the East Lancs for Old Bob? Six championships in nine years. How many European Cups? And he never got one!”

Dalglish may not be bestowed a Knighthood by the British monarchy, but to Liverpool supporters who will always be King Kenny and something makes you think he’s happier with that.

Dalglish on Klopp, Gerrard and 'Kenny'

Dalglish on Klopp, Gerrard and 'Kenny'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 19:13

Jürgen Klopp meets every criterion required to manage Liverpool, according to Kenny Dalglish, a predecessor who describes the current boss as ‘the perfect fit’ for the club.

Having spent two spells in charge during a 40-year association with Liverpool that also involved establishing himself as arguably the greatest player to ever wear the red shirt, few men are more familiar with the fabric of the club than Dalglish.

And, in Klopp, the legendary Scot sees a man who has the personality and skill to continue the proud traditions that began with Bill Shankly.

“We want to win matches and we have a guy who I think is cloned into managing Liverpool,” Dalglish told Liverpoolfc.com at the premiere of ‘Kenny’, a new film about his life.

“He is the perfect fit for us as a football club. Jürgen is perfect for us. He fulfils every criteria the people in the past have had. 

“We’ve got Shanks which we’ve put down in his criteria for the Liverpool manager: ‘Relate to the people and relate to everybody.’

“I think Jürgen can do that and he’s good at his job as well.”

Dalglish also assessed Steven Gerrard’s start to life as manager of Liverpool’s U18s - and it’s fair to say he has been impressed.

“How good is it for the U18s to go in and to know they are going on a training pitch with Steven?!” the former No.7 said.

“It’s a dream for them isn’t it, and he’s good at his job so it’s not as if he is just paying lip service. 

“He’s thrown himself in to the football club and the U18s and also to the U19s for the European games. He’s doing fantastically well and being very successful as well. 

“I don’t think there is any downside for anybody with Steven being in the Academy and working with the kids. 

“If you are a kid, how thrilled are you if Stevie says that was a great goal? That’s huge for a kid and he’s loving it and really enjoying it.”

Speaking about ‘Kenny’, the King admitted to feeling ‘a wee bit nervous’ before watching the final version and explained why he made the decision to sanction its production.

“The people who made it, Pitch International, were helpful because we have a fantastic relationship with them anyway,” Dalglish said.

“It’s the first time they asked me and I thought it would be a good idea. We have a good friendship and I feel very relaxed in their company, and I think if you feel relaxed it’s a better product.”

Why calls for Joe Gomez to play centre-back are wide of the mark – for now

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 16/11/2017 - 19:00

ADVERTISING

Joe Gomez‘s strong performances at centre-back for England have led to some calls for a change in role for Liverpool, but this overlooks a key issue.


After 13 months in the wilderness, sidelined with an ACL injury, the tables have turned for Gomez, who is now benefiting from the absence of other players for both club and country.

Joining the Reds from Charlton in 2015, the young defender made just seven appearances before being struck down on duty with the England U21s.

But now, with Nathaniel Clyne missing until at least February, Gomez has been handed a key role by Jurgen Klopp, serving as Liverpool’s deputy right-back.

And in England’s pair of showcase friendlies against Germany and Brazil in the November international break, Phil Jones’ thigh problems granted him a berth at centre-back.

Those displays for the Three Lions, and particularly in Tuesday night’s 0-0 draw with Brazil, proved Gomez’s fledgling quality.

ADVERTISING

But while his success in shackling Neymar at Wembley was certainly admirable, the predictable suggestions that this should see the 20-year-old take up a centre-back role for Liverpool come too early.

Gomez was a colossus in north London, sticking to Paris Saint-Germain’s No. 10 throughout, with his front-footed approach quelling the threat of Neymar before he was allowed to build.

He made eight interceptions on the night, more than any other player, and was also level with Ryan Bertrand for the most clearances (four).

But his outlook was more nuanced than simply reading and removing the danger, with Gomez also proving his ability to step out of the defence with composure on the ball.

He completed more passes than John Stones, with 39, while he was more accurate in possession than their fellow centre-back Harry Maguire, with a 87.2 percent success rate.

Only Neymar (six) and Marcus Rashford (four) made more successful dribbles than Gomez (two), whose confidence moving into the midfield was crucial to the prosperity of Southgate’s back three.

These are qualities he has shown from a young age, be that for Charlton or as he worked his way through the ranks for England, from the U16s up to the U21s, for whom he is currently captain.

And they are qualities that suggest he can be a long-term solution for Klopp at centre-back.

ADVERTISING

But the same situation that has thrust Gomez into prominence at Anfield this season is also one depriving him of a run in his preferred position, as he has detailed on a number of occasions.

“For me being a young player getting regular games, regardless of the position, I’m just happy to be able to learn,” he said on his call-up to Southgate’s squad.

“I do see myself moving inside towards centre-half and hopefully playing most of my career there.

The sudden absence of Clyne, who played more minutes than any other player in his first two seasons with the Reds, is a considerable blow to Klopp.

The manager has previously described the right-back as a “machine” due to his remarkable fitness, and the loss of this reliable, consistent presence was a setback to his plans.

But, for better or worse, rather than turn to the transfer market to find a solution, Klopp opted to keep his faith in Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The former has so far started 10 games this season, with the latter starting the remaining eight; it is a balance that has served Klopp well, and one designed to aid their development.
