Matip and Solanke help get kids active with Super Movers

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 19/01/2018 - 13:01

Joel Matip and Dominic Solanke joined local school children and CBBC favourites Ben Shires and Naomi Wilkinson at Anfield to take part in the BBC’s Super Movers Live Lesson.

The Live Lesson consisted of a fun, active maths session for seven to nine-year-olds showcasing Super Movers content and energising classrooms across the UK.

Liverpool first-teamers Matip and Solanke also took the opportunity to show off their Super Moves during the lesson, as well as giving some advice on how to get active. 

The BBC and the Premier League launched Super Movers this week - an exciting partnership that will help primary school teachers inspire children to become more active throughout their school day and enhance their learning. 

Super Movers will bring stars from the worlds of football, music and television together in fun, free and easy-to-follow educational videos which will capture children’s imaginations and help teachers to get them moving throughout the day with a series of routines and activities. 

Matip said: “Super Movers is a great idea. It not only gets children to move but learn at the same time. The kids today certainly showed me a move or two.”

Along with the Premier League and other football clubs, the LFC Foundation - Liverpool FC's official charity - will support Super Movers through their work in local schools, helping teachers use the Super Movers videos in classrooms and encouraging an active ethos. 

Andrea Cooper, head of the LFC Foundation, added: “We were delighted to host the Super Movers Live Lesson at Anfield. It’s a fantastic campaign that promotes physical activity, which is something we are very passionate about because we know the positive effects that being active can have on children’s attainment, behaviour, concentration, self-esteem and of course health.

“We will be encouraging all of our local schools to engage in Super Movers and access the fun online content.”

Arsenal and Liverpool joint favourites in race for Norwich star

HEAD NEWS - Fri, 19/01/2018 - 12:08

Norwich City ace James Maddison is attracting interest from a host of Premier League sides after impressing for the Canaries.

Liverpool and Tottenham are considering moves for the 21-year-old midfielder, who has chipped in with eight goals and eight assists in 30 appearances.

Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly plotting a January swoop before immediately loaning Maddison back to Norwich for the rest of the season in a bid to beat their Anfield rivals.

And the bookies reckon Maddison could be on the move before the transfer window slams shut.

Liverpool and Tottenham plus Premier League rivals Arsenal and Everton are priced at 4/1 to sign the England U21 international before February 3.

Maddison is under contract at Carrow Road until 2021 after signing an extension last summer. 

Norwich are in the midst of a cost-cutting process and sold Alex Pritchard to Huddersfield for £11million earlier this month.

But Canaries head coach Daniel Farke does not expect the club to sell Maddison in this transfer window.

“There can be no assurances in this business,” he said.

“Two weeks ago I didn’t have the feeling we would sell Alex but things develop, offers increase and there is a point when the club must make a decision.

“You know in this business there can be something stupid at any moment. But right now, from the sporting side they know it is important to keep a key player like James Maddison.

“The only message from this decision should be that before, the financial pressure was not big in this window.

“Now we have sold an important player for a lot of money so there is no pressure to sell another one.

“It takes further pressure away and we are able to keep players like James Maddison.

“I am pretty sure if we get another offer for one of our big players after selling Alex the board would feel we can’t lose a second key player in this moment in the season. It means we are more likely to keep the key players together.”

Maddison attracted interest from Liverpool and Arsenal before Norwich signed him from Coventry in January 2016.

Karius: I have to show my worth - for now and the long-term

Karius: I have to show my worth - for now and the long-term

LiverpoolFC.TV - Fri, 19/01/2018 - 11:50

Loris Karius is determined to prove himself worthy of the chance Jürgen Klopp has given him to be Liverpool's regular goalkeeper.

After continuing his role between the posts in the cup competitions for the Anfield victory over Everton, the German was selected again when Manchester City visited in the Premier League last weekend.

On the day, the manager confirmed that the position is the 24-year-old’s to retain, stating: “Usually I could say it’s a decision for today but if Loris now is able to perform, he will stay in the goal.”

Karius was naturally encouraged by those words, of course, but is conscious of the need to repay Klopp’s faith in him with a series of consistent displays.

“Now you are back in goal you have to prove yourself and show how good you are to stay No.1 in the long-term, not just for the moment, to prove maybe I’m the long-term No.1 that can be in goal here for Liverpool for years to come,” he told Liverpoolfc.com.

“But that’s far ahead. So, for right now I just want to help the team in the remaining four months of the season to reach our goals and do well.”

The No.1, who has played 11 times this term, continued: “That’s what I’ve been working towards since I was left out.

“I’ve been using the Champions League to get game time and prove myself. That was very good for me. There were not that many games but it’s the highest level you can play on.

“I had a few league games now and then but, of course, now it’s going to be different playing every week. It’s nice, it’s great to hear and I can’t wait to be in goal again next week.”

The Reds journey to Wales for their next Premier League outing, a meeting with Swansea City – currently bottom of the division – on Monday evening.

They do so with confidence high thanks to the exhilarating 4-3 triumph over the leaders, City, on Sunday, but Karius insisted Liverpool must move on from that result.

“Straight after the game everyone was very happy and pleased,” he said. “The next day, we spoke about the game and of course we were all in a good mood.

“We had a day off and now we’re back in training. It’s not [about] looking back too much, it’s [about] preparing for the next one. There are so many important games to come. We only got three points out of it – that was our aim and we’re very pleased. But now it’s onto the next one.”

Karius will now prepare to be part of the XI selected at the Liberty Stadium.

The opportunity in his hands will not have an influence on the stopper’s approach, however. “There is always pressure. You can turn it any way you want,” he added.

“You can say if you are the challenger that you need to be doing very well every time you come in, or you can’t have a bad game as a No.1. That’s just our job and the pressure comes with it. I don’t really see it as pressure.”

Liverpool Under-18s coach Steven Gerrard wants to build winning culture

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 22:49

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard’s winning mentality remains undimmed now he is a coach and his under-18 players will not need reminding of that this weekend.


His side host Arsenal in the fourth round of the FA Youth Cup which, at Gerrard’s request, will be played at Anfield on Saturday with a 3pm kick-off.

The youth team boss wants to see how his players cope under the pressure of a big-game atmosphere, but more importantly he wants them to bring home some silverware this season.

“I’d love some of these players to go on and play for Liverpool’s first team, I’d be the proudest man in the city, but I’m not coming in and taking a job at this football club if it’s just about that,” he said.

“If we’re not teaching kids about the importance of winning at a young age then maybe someone should say to me ‘You’re not welcome here’.

“That doesn’t float my boat – turning up on the weekend and it’s just about getting one player to the first team.

“I’m doing a disservice to football and the game if I’m saying to these that winning doesn’t matter because it does.”

Gerrard will not be able to call on the injured Rhian Brewster, golden boot winner as England were victorious at last summer’s Under-17 World Cup, but he could receive a boost if senior Wales international Ben Woodburn is made available by Jurgen Klopp.

Brewster, who has spent most of the season with Liverpool’s Under-23s, was in Gerrard’s thoughts before an ankle injury in Friday’s defeat to Manchester City which is likely to rule out the 17-year-old for some time.

“I don’t know the full extent but it is going to be a good while. I do not know the complete time-scale. He has further tests (in London),” Gerrard added.

Asked about the availability of Woodburn, who has played for him in the UEFA Youth League this season, Gerrard said: “I haven’t asked the question and no-one has mentioned it to me thus far so, at the moment, it’s a no.

“That might change in the next 24 hours.”

– Tickets for Saturday’s tie cost £3 for adults and £1 for juniors, young adults and over-65s.

Jurgen Klopp’s winter rotation shows squad depth will be key factor in second half of season

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 21:56

Liverpool’s long unbeaten run over winter is impressive, but key January departures have to be replaced if the Reds are to maintain their challenge on three fronts.


Looking at a strong top-four challenge, still in the FA Cup and competing in the knock-outs of the Champions League, 2018 could get off to a very interesting start for Jurgen Klopp‘s team.

Of course, quality will dictate just how far any push for honours go, but quantity is important too: the squad depth must be tended to.

Much was made of the boss’ tendency to swap players with such frequency as the fixtures piled up, but the points tally speaks for itself.

Across November and December in particular, the switches came with regularity, putting Klopp way out in front for number of changes to his starting XI for the Premier League season.

Indeed, for most Premier League seasons.

59 – Liverpool have made 59 changes to their starting XI so far this season in the league; only one team have made more in their opening 16 games to a Premier League campaign (Man Utd; 68 in 2001-02). Tinker. pic.twitter.com/N9eGU9t6oI

— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) December 12, 2017

But the results came, and fewer injuries were accumulated. Jordan Henderson suffered a spell out, and Daniel Sturridge has too, but few others: a week or so for Mohamed Salah, a short span for Dejan Lovren, a longer one for Alberto Moreno.

Considering the Reds played 15 matches in exactly two months, it was far from the devastation to the regular team it might have been.

And, it’s 18 matches unbeaten now since the fiasco at Wembley. With the likes of Swansea, West Brom and Huddersfield up next, it could go on a while longer yet.

Klopp has managed his squad well; even those who were out of the team for long stretches at the start of the campaign have been eased, or thrown, in to great effect.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain represents the best example of the former, while Andy Robertson‘s lung-busting breakthrough definitely comes under the latter heading.

For the first time in too long, it feels as though Liverpool almost have a deep squad which can cope with most injury build-ups…almost.

The defence had been stretched thin from time to time—notably with all three centre-backs on ice at one point—but Virgil van Dijk‘s arrival should fix those worries. Full-back is fine, with two on each side, James Milner as cover and others who can fill in.

Midfield similarly looks reasonably deep: Henderson and Emre Can as the No. 6, Gini Wijnaldum, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Adam Lallana all options for the 8s. Milner, again, is cover throughout.

It’s arguable that one more quality addition would be beneficial, particularly following Philippe Coutinho‘s departure, but it’s not essential for the pure numbers.

But in attack, the Reds’ situation is more precarious; that Coutinho departure leaves them on the brink.

The trio is unstoppable, exciting, relentless…and because of all that, they have to come out from time to time.

Their intensity and explosivity leaves them most prone to fatigue and injury, and there’s not a direct replacement in the squad for each other than shifting Oxlade-Chamberlain into the front line.

Sturridge, with his acceleration and scoring touch seemingly departed, just doesn’t offer the reliability or the reassurance that he can be the primary goal threat again, while Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke don’t have a goal between them.

Barring an unlikely return to prominence for Lazar Markovic, it’s in young talents that any further rotations most come from for Klopp, which makes it paramount that any further departures from the squad are replaced.

There have been rumours, concerning both Sturridge and Ings, that an Anfield exit could be imminent. Ovie Ejaria could leave on loan, Ben Woodburn has been sought after, even Harry Wilson would be snapped up by Championship sides if they were encouraged.

But the Reds cannot afford that, not without replacements.

One injury to a wide forward can just about be dealt with, now that Lallana is back and Henderson returning. The switch, both starting at times and in-game, to a 4-4-2 can also help in this regard.

But a rotation and an injury or suspension hitting at the same time will be tricky to deal with.

Up until the end of February, it won’t be much of an issue. One game a week for the most part, time to train, time to recover.

But come March, if the Reds progress past Porto and West Brom in each cup in turn, the pile-up will come fast once again.

Klopp has already shown he can switch personnel effectively—but only if he’s got the numbers there.

Coutinho’s departure will hit Liverpool hardest not when the remaining three-pronged front line are fit and healthy, but when one is missing.

No replacement midfield schemer isn’t the real issue, not right now at least, but Coutinho provided drive and a goal threat in the final third.

A single departure more and Liverpool, and Klopp, have to act.

The squad has worked wonders to get themselves into this position, but it has very much been a cumulative, group effort—and the same again will be needed in the final weeks and months.
