Christian Pulisic update as Dortmund make transfer contact

LiverpoolFC.TV - Mon, 12/24/2018 - 09:05

Christian Pulisic could be on the move in January after Borussia Dortmund made contact with Borussia Monchengladbach over a replacement.

Pulisic has been linked with Liverpool and Chelsea and is approaching the final year of his contract.

Dortmund have been insistent he will not leave in January despite the cut price he would go for in the summer if he remained.

Pulisic is keen on a move to the Premier League and is said to prefer a switch to Liverpool.

And the Reds may have been given a boost with Dortmund now making a move for their replacement.

According to RMC Sport Dortmund have contacted Borussia Monchengladbach about Thorgan Hazard.

The former Chelsea man, and Eden Hazard’s brother, has been in fine form in the Bundesliga this term.

Some have suggested Chelsea still have a buyback clause to resign Hazard, but Speaking in 2016, Gladbach sporting director Max Eberl dismissed the suggestion.

"There is no clause," he told Express.de .

"I do not want to comment on any contract content. But we also do not need to make any secrets about it.

"If we get such a top player from Chelsea, then Chelsea has, of course, always the opportunity, in whatever form, to think about this player."

The 25-year-old has scored nine times in 17 games and has six assists.

Monchengladbach are third in the Bundesliga behind Dortmund and Bayern Munich.

Pulisic’s game time at Dortmund has been reduced this season following the emergence of Jadon Sancho.

The England ace has become the newest star on the block and has pulled ahead of the American in the pecking order.

But Chelsea and Liverpool remain keen on Pulisic and are expected to test the waters next month.

Top 10 PL stars of 2018: Salah

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Mon, 12/24/2018 - 06:00
Salah has been outstanding for Liverpool in 2018

Last Updated: 24/12/18 5:01pm

Mohamed Salah completes our countdown of the best Premier League players of 2018 Mohamed Salah completes our countdown of the best Premier League players of 2018 Mohamed Salah completes our countdown of the best Premier League players of 2018

Liverpool's Mohamed Salah is Sky Sports' standout Premier League star of 2018.

The Egyptian has enjoyed a dazzling 12 months with Jurgen Klopp's side, capping last season by winning the PFA and FWA Player of the Year awards and returning to top form in the new campaign.

His brilliant hat-trick against Bournemouth last weekend took him to the top of the Premier League scoring charts with 10 goals this season, and he is showing no sign of slowing down as Liverpool bid to finish the year above Manchester City at the top of the table.

What do the stats say?

With 15 goals in 15 Premier League appearances in the second half of last season, Salah sent records tumbling. His total of 32 beat the previous record of 31 in a 38-game Premier League season reached by Luis Suarez in 2013/14, Cristiano Ronaldo in 2007/08 and Alan Shearer in 1995/96. Salah outscored three entire teams and netted in a record 24 separate games.

Mohamed Salah's 2018 PL stats
  • 33 appearances
  • 26 goals
  • 10 assists
  • 126 shots

Having scored 11 goals in 18 appearances in the new campaign, he is the Premier League's top scorer for 2018 with a total of 26 - three more than any other player. Salah has contributed 10 assists in the same period - meaning no one else has had a direct hand in more goals.

A deeper look at the statistics underlines his contribution even more. As well as leading the goal charts, Salah ranks among the top five Premier League players in 2018 for shots on target, chances created, clear-cut chances created and dribbles.

With his first goal against Bournemouth last weekend, he reached the 40-goal mark in the Premier League in fewer games (52) than any other Liverpool player.

What were his highlights?

There have been plenty. Salah's 2018 began with an outstanding long-range goal in Liverpool's memorable 4-3 win over Manchester City in January and he has continued in much the same vein ever since.

His four-goal haul in Liverpool's 5-0 demolition of Watford in January included two trademark strikes which followed bewitching dribbles, and there was an even more memorable example in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham in February, when he wriggled through a crowd of white shirts at Anfield before scooping a high finish over the advancing Hugo Lloris.

Salah was key on Liverpool's run to the Champions League final Salah was key on Liverpool's run to the Champions League final Salah was key on Liverpool's run to the Champions League final

Salah endured Champions League final heartache as he was forced off with an injury in the defeat to Real Madrid, but there were goals in each of the previous knockout rounds, including in both legs of their quarter-final win over Manchester City.

Salah has shone in the competition again this season, scoring the goal against Napoli which sealed Liverpool's place in the last 16. In the Premier League, the hat-trick against Bournemouth was another highlight of an unforgettable year.

What's the pundit verdict?

"The great thing about Mo Salah is he's always in with a shout of scoring, even when things weren't going right for him at the start of last season and at the start of this season, says Soccer Saturday pundit Phil Thompson.

"He always looks like he can score. He never seems to doubt himself and that's probably his greatest quality. He's always in there getting into positions to try and score a goal."

Ruthless Liverpool could be set for easy stroll – The view from Newcastle ahead of Boxing Day clash

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sun, 12/23/2018 - 18:00

Rafa Benitez returns to Anfield with Newcastle United on Boxing Day, but do Magpies supporters see anything other than a Liverpool win?


The Reds are top of the Premier League by four points at Christmas, following Friday’s professional 2-0 win away to Wolves.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are breaking records all the time, with 48 points from 18 games, at an average of 2.66 points per game, their best-ever start to a campaign.

Meanwhile, Benitez’s hands continue to be tied at St. James’ Park and he’s working wonders to even have them out of the relegation zone.

They have, though, kept cleansheets in their last two league games – beating Huddersfield 1-0 and drawing 0-0 with Fulham on Saturday.

Ahead of the game, we spoke to Newcastle season ticket holder James Suggett to get his thoughts on both sides’ seasons and the Boxing Day offering.

Newcastle are 15th in the Premier League, five points above the relegation zone – how happy are you with the season so far?

It’s pretty much what I’d expected so far to be perfectly honest.

Lack of recruitment at the start of the campaign would always mean we’d be looking for a repeat of last season.

I’d probably say I am a little disappointed that we’ve not seen off the teams we should be beating at home.

How is our old favourite Rafa Benitez doing, especially considering the off-field issues?

Don’t get me wrong I like a lot of things Rafa does. He’s always putting the club out there for the community and trying to unite fans.

Other times I find his tactics to be very questionable. He often lacks a ‘plan B’, and his decision to make substitutions is always too late. You can pretty much guarantee if it’s 0-0 he’ll make a change bringing Matt Ritchie off around the 70th minute!

What’s the biggest concern this season? That Rafa walks?

My biggest concern is the lack of depth in the squad. Regardless of who the manager is we will struggle if we pick up injuries to key players. I’m also a little worried that we won’t look to strengthen in the January window.

Which three players have stood out most for you this season, and why?

Martin Dubravka has to be number one. Like last season he’s a big player for us. He makes some quality saves and keeps us in games. Considering how much we paid for him it’s a steal.

I also think Rondon has been good for us. He’s given us more of a target man who can hold the ball up, and battle defenders.

Fernandez has surprised me too. He’s been solid and no nonsense which is what we’ve needed.

What have you made of Liverpool’s season? Can they pip Man City to the title?

I think they’ve been more ruthless when putting games to bed.

I’ve also been impressed by their ability to grind results out when they’ve not played as well as they could. It was always going to be a long-term rebuild, and there is greater depth throughout the squad now.

I said City at the start of the year and I’ll stick with it. As much as Liverpool are improving I still see a little blip somewhere.

Anyone you fear for the Reds, in particular?

Do you need to ask!? Salah is always dangerous and with our track record of switching off he’ll be the one to look out for.

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

It will be in the midfield for me. We need to pressure the ball and stop Liverpool supplying the front men. Easier said than done.

Hit us with a prediction…

I want to say we will sneak a 1-0 win to be the first team to beat you in the league this season. My head tells me it will be 3-0 to Liverpool. A nice easy stroll for your lot!

Ings scores again as game-time improves for loanees – Liverpool FC Loan Watch

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sun, 12/23/2018 - 17:54

Danny Ings continued his goal-scoring form on a positive weekend which saw an improvement in game-time for Liverpool’s loanees.


The season of goodwill brought a welcome upturn in game-time this weekend, as seven of the 11 available Reds featured.

Four familiar faces still went without action, with Ben Woodburn, Taiwo Awoniyi, Shamal George and Anderson Arroyo all unused.

Marko Grujic, Allan Rodrigues, Ryan Kent and Connor Randall all remain sidelined, and the former duo now won’t play until after the Bundesliga’s winter break.

Here’s the full lowdown on how those who did play fared, starting with a familiar goalscorer…

Another game, another goal for Ings…

It’s turning into a really good season for Ings, who continues to be the shining light for improving Southampton.

Ings netted his eighth of the season – also his third in his last two games – in a vital 3-1 win at Huddersfield which ensured it will be a happy Christmas for Saints fans.

Ings made it 2-0 just before half-time, coolly converting a penalty which he had won by slotting into the bottom left corner, sending Jonas Lossl the wrong way.

It means the striker has scored more Premier League penalties than any other player this campaign, with three successful spot-kicks.

After a brief injury scare it’s great to see Ings hit the ground running again with goals in successive games, and he will be full of belief that he can keep the run going.

Six more Reds featured at home and abroad…

Starting in the Football League, Harry Wilson, surprisingly, has gone three games without a goal or assist at Derby after a stunning spell of six goals and an assist in seven outings.

But the Welsh Wizard is still in good form for Frank Lampard’s side and produced another bright performance in a 1-1 draw against Bristol City on Saturday.

Wilson was the Rams’ best player on the day, providing a constant source of creation and goal-threat as he impressed in a free-roaming midfield role.

Herbie Kane wasn’t quite able to celebrate his new Liverpool contract and loan extension at League One Doncaster with another goal-scoring display.

But Kane was still in good form in his side’s 2-2 draw with Oxford on Saturday, in which he played the full game again having become a vital part of Donny’s team.

Corey Whelan was back in Crewe’s starting XI against Forest Green but his return didn’t go as hoped, with the full-back subbed after an hour of a 1-0 loss which left his side 18th in League Two.

In Scotland, it was an eventful week at Hibernian for Adam Bogdan.

Injury to first choice Ofir Marciano saw the Hungarian return and shine against Rangers in midweek, with an “unbelievable” display earning a clean sheet to deny ex-Anfield teammate Steven Gerrard.

But Bogdan was unable to follow up that heroic performance with another on Saturday as Hibs drew again, this time 1-1 against Livingston.

Two European Reds featured for the final time in 2018, playing their last games before winter breaks in their respective leagues.

Loris Karius was one of those as the Turkish SuperLig pauses until January, but he unfortunately didn’t sign off for Christmas as he will have wanted.

Indeed, a difficult year for the German ended with an uninspiring performance as Besiktas were thrashed 4-1 by Kasimpasa on Saturday.

Karius had little help from his woeful defence, but the ‘keeper didn’t fare much better himself with some questionable goalkeeping for the second and fourth goal conceded.

Karius’ decision to rush out of goal was partly responsible for the former of those strikes, while he was somehow beaten by a very weak effort for the fourth.

Hopefully 2019 proves a much better year on the pitch for Karius.

The other was Sheyi Ojo, who has endured a frustrating time recently so will have enjoyed his extended outing in Reims’ 2-2 draw against Cean on Saturday.

Ojo played the whole second-half after being introduced at the break with his team 2-1 down, and he helped Reims battle back for a point with a lively display.

Sent on to add a different dimension in attack, Ojo did that as he posed a constant goal-threat, firing two shots on target in 45 minutes – the same total as any starting player.

It’s not the first time Ojo has impressed from the bench this season, and it’s slightly frustrating that the Ligue1 break arrives just when he will have wanted to build on a bright showing.

The task instead for Ojo will be to pick up from where he has left off upon the restart in January.

Andy Robertson gives insight into dressing room arguments and Liverpool’s leaders

ThisIsAnfield.com - Sun, 12/23/2018 - 16:56

Andy Robertson believes passionate exchanges between players on and off the pitch show the leadership behind Liverpool’s excellent form this season.


The Reds are currently top of the Premier League and four points clear of second-placed Man City, having gone 18 games unbeaten so far in the English top flight.

Consistency has been key factor to their success so far, despite Jurgen Klopp regularly rotating his side to ensure sharpness and address the requirements of a particular game.

This has often seen captain Jordan Henderson and vice-captain James Milner left out, with the manager revealing in October that the squad had voted Virgil van Dijk and Gini Wijnaldum as third and fourth choice for the role.

Beyond that quartet, there are a variety of leaders in Klopp’s side, including Robertson, who wears the armband for Scotland and told the club’s official website this week that this has led to some productive arguments.

“We have a fantastic captain in Hendo. [Wolves] was his 300th game for the club and that’s a great achievement,” he said.

“We’ve got Milly behind him as well and he’s a top pro, everyone looks up to him.

“Virgil is captain for his country so there are plenty of leaders on the park. I’m including Dejan [Lovren] in that as well.

“The more leaders we have got on the park the better as far as I’m concerned. There were a couple of arguments out there against Wolves—a couple of things that needed to be said and they were said.

“We all have the attitude that if someone says something to you, you have to take it on the chin. If you don’t agree with it, you deal with it at full-time or half-time and speak to one another.

“We have spoken together as a team. We do discuss things [and] have said that’s it’s about having that honesty between us.

“I think that’s something the lads have done really well since the start of the season. It shows the respect between us.”

This is a sentiment echoed by Van Dijk after he was pictured in a heated interaction with Henderson during the 1-0 win over Napoli in the Champions League.

The Dutchman said: “I love stuff like that because it shows you’re a proper team, and it shows you care and want to win.”

It’s clear there is an excellent team spirit at Liverpool, but as both Van Dijk and Robertson attest, it is better for the squad’s strong characters to lead by example.

The desire to win is high, and it is paying off as the Reds continue to push for silverware.

Fulham vs Wolves, Wednesday 12.30pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League

I watched Fulham on Saturday and they looked quite solid and you would never have guessed they have let in a million goals already this season. They defended really well, while Wolves got well beat by Liverpool, so I am going to go for a must-win Fulham victory.

I just think that they have got to win this game, so they will have a lot more intensity than Wolves.

PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

2:58 Highlights from Newcastle's 0-0 draw against Fulham in the Premier League. Highlights from Newcastle's 0-0 draw against Fulham in the Premier League. Brighton vs Arsenal, Wednesday 5.15pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League

At home, Brighton are a different kettle of fish to away from home (although they were a little unlucky to lose at Bournemouth on Saturday), while Arsenal will be buoyant after seeing Chelsea lose. Now all of a sudden, the top four is realistic and I think Arsenal will win this game 3-2.

PAUL PREDICTS: 2-3 (25/1 with Sky Bet)

2:12 Highlights from Bournemouth's 2-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League. Highlights from Bournemouth's 2-0 win over Brighton in the Premier League. Watford vs Chelsea, Wednesday 7.30pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League

The defeat to Leicester was a shocking result for Chelsea. I was at the game when they drew with Everton and before that match, they were title contenders. Now they are fighting for the top four. That loss has also now opened the door to Man Utd, believe it or not.

Watford will be a hard game, they are physical and decent and they had an unbelievable result the other day winning at West Ham, it was a great win.

But you just do not know what you are going to get with Watford - one minute they are brave and fit, the next they are getting beat 4-0 at home by Bournemouth. But I am just going to go with Chelsea here…

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (15/2 with Sky Bet)

2:58 Highlights from Leicester's 1-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League. Highlights from Leicester's 1-0 win over Chelsea in the Premier League. Burnley vs Everton, Wednesday, 3pm

Burnley make it hard for teams - I watched them against Brighton and Tottenham and I know they got beat at Arsenal on Saturday, but they are hard to play against.

So I think they will make it hard for Everton, this will end in a draw and they will make Turf Moor a hard place to go between now and the end of the season.

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-1 (11/2 with Sky Bet)

2:55 Highlights from Arsenal's 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League. Highlights from Arsenal's 3-1 win over Burnley in the Premier League. Crystal Palace v Cardiff City, Wednesday, 3pm

I can't see anything but a Palace win after beating Man City - what a goal by Andros Townsend by the way - while Cardiff were on the end of a hiding in losing 5-1 to Man Utd.

PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (12/1 with Sky Bet)

2:59 Highlights from Manchester United's 5-1 win over Cardiff in the Premier League. Highlights from Manchester United's 5-1 win over Cardiff in the Premier League. Leicester vs Man City, Wednesday, 3pm

This is a big game and a must-win game for Manchester City, who are in trouble now as they are four points behind Liverpool. I mean it has now got down to the situation whereby if Liverpool win at City in a week's time - in a game you can see live on Sky Sports Premier League - it is all over.

So this is a big game for City and a hard one as Leicester can cause you problems. But because they have to win, I think they will, but Saturday's result will have knocked the stuffing out of them and Man City have now lost two of their last three league games. And before that it looked like they would never ever lose a game, but I see them just winning this one to stay on the coat tails of Liverpool.

PAUL PREDICTS: 1-2 (15/2 with Sky Bet)

2:56 Highlights from Crystal Palace's 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League. Highlights from Crystal Palace's 3-2 win over Manchester City in the Premier League. Liverpool vs Newcastle United, Wednesday, 3pm

I watched Newcastle against Fulham, they never looked like scoring in a month of Sundays and they were playing against the worst defence in the world! So this would be the biggest shock of the season if they won here. Newcastle will defend for so long, but then it will not be enough.

PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (11/2 with Sky Bet)

2:52 Highlights from Liverpool's 2-0 win over Wolves in the Premier League. Highlights from Liverpool's 2-0 win over Wolves in the Premier League. Man Utd vs Huddersfield Town, Wednesday, 3pm

The change at Man United is not down to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. It is the players and it is a joke. You watch them on Saturday, and the difference was pathetic, a joke, embarrassing.

I would be ashamed. All of a sudden Solskjaer is 100 times better than Jose Mourinho as a manager? Come on…. I do not like it.

The players are all running around now, so I am going to go for a 4-0 win here. They are grown-ups and they should have been able to go out and express themselves like at Valencia when they had nothing to play for. It is up to the players in the end….

PAUL PREDICTS: 4-0 (10/1 with Sky Bet)

2:59 Highlights from Southampton's 3-1 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League. Highlights from Southampton's 3-1 win over Huddersfield in the Premier League. Tottenham vs Bournemouth, Wednesday, 3pm

I expect Spurs to win this and if they do, they are still in the title hunt. This is a much easier game than Man City have, in my opinion, and before you know it, they can be challengers.

So it is funny how it works, but I think Spurs will win this one as Bournemouth are a funny team - they lose six out of seven, then they win on Saturday and they are one of those teams that could now go and win six on the trot…

PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0 (9/1 with Sky Bet)

Southampton vs West Ham, Thursday 7.45pm, live on Sky Sports Premier League

This should be a good game. West Ham were flying along before losing to Watford, while Southampton are showing you when you run around and work hard, like Man Utd did, they all have the talent and it is amazing what happens.

So'ton vs West Ham

December 27, 2018, 7:30pm

Live on

They now have a bit of confidence and are all working hard but, despite losing on Saturday, West Ham are also a decent team, so I am going to go for 2-2 here.

PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (12/1 with Sky Bet)
