Trent Alexander-Arnold stands behind Liverpool’s foodbank appeal as festive period approaches

ThisIsAnfield.com - Wed, 12/04/2019 - 11:00

Trent Alexander-Arnold was on hand to help launch the club’s Christmas Foodbank appeal as both he and the club continue their efforts to help the wider community.


Alexander-Arnold has been a key member of Liverpool’s wider community away from football long before his star exponentially rose after becoming a regular member of the first team.

Liverpool’s No. 66, who is also an ambassador for An Hour For Others, a charitable organisation which urges local people and businesses to put back into the community, has readily supported the city’s foodbanks.

A mural adorned on a wall around the corner from Anfield not only recognises his stature in the side, but also, more significantly, acts as a call to support foodbanks.

And with the festive period fast approaching and the need for food and nonperishable items ever-increasing amid the current climate, Alexander-Arnold was on hand to launch the club’s Christmas Foodbank appeal.

In a video released by the club, the right-back visited the North Liverpool Foodbank to meet with the staff and the volunteers to gain an insight into the work they do and how people can help.

“It’s not a good sign that these type of places are around. It’s amazing to see the work that goes on,” Trent told operations manager Simon Huthwaite.

“The selflessness that goes on is unbelievable.

“As players we need to enforce that it is such an important part of the community, especially at this time of the year you don’t want to see people going hungry.

“We can all imagine how difficult it would be if we were in crisis like so many people in the city are so it’s about supporting [foodbanks] as much as possible. And being a local lad it’s something that I’m definitely behind.”

The centre is the same one Andy Robertson visited last year, and after the roll out of universal credit, a new type of benefit, “things have got worse” as there has been a 47 percent increase in referrals to foodbanks.

Simon also revealed last season’s derby fixture saw up to two and a half tonnes of food donated, and the target for Wednesday’s meeting is set at four tonnes ahead of the Christmas period.

And ahead of Wednesday’s Merseyside derby, Alexander-Arnold urged supporters from both teams attending the game to donate what they can.

“We urge you to donate as much as possible, whether it’s big or small – it makes a massive difference. It might be two teams but it’s one city.”

Drop-off points for matchday are located on Anfield Road with a foodbank van, the official LFC retail store and Homebaked bakery on Oakfield Road.

Priority items for the North Liverpool Foodbank include: UHT milk, custard, tinned vegetables and fruit, instant mash, jam, toiletries and washing tablets.

Jürgen Klopp on Jadon Sancho to Liverpool January transfer rumours

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 12/04/2019 - 09:45

Jürgen Klopp has refused to be drawn over a January move for Jadon Sancho as Liverpool continue to be linked with the England international.

Sancho is said to be unhappy with life at Borussia Dortmund and Liverpool have been one of the clubs who have been inevitably linked with the 19-year-old, with the former Manchester City academy player said to be attracting the attention of a string of European heavyweights.

Klopp, however, kept his counsel when asked about interest from the European champions and said there was nothing to discuss about Sancho.

"He’s a very good player," Klopp said. "I have no clue where these kind of things are coming from, but it cannot come from us because we never speak about it.

"If we would be involved, nobody would know about it apart from a person who wouldn’t speak about it. There's nothing to say.

"Cost? That’s one issue, 100 per cent that would be an issue. But there’s nothing to say about it.

"I know how it sounds, but I cannot change that. There’s nothing to say about it, which can mean there’s absolutely nothing to say about it."

Merseyside derby view from the opposition… with Circa Waves

LiverpoolFC.TV - Wed, 12/04/2019 - 09:00

It's Merseyside derby day; families are temporarily divided, friends briefly become foes and Liverpool band Circa Waves are split asunder.

Formed in the city back in 2013, the indie rock outfit are fronted by lead singer, guitarist and Evertonian Kieran Shudall, while bass guitarist Sam Rourke proudly represents the red half of Liverpool.

Ahead of tonight's Premier League clash at Anfield we caught up with the band (@CircaWaves), who today premiered the video to Jacqueline from new album Sad Happy, to talk secret football love songs, gentleman's agreements, rivalry and more...

[embedded content]

Do you ever sit down to watch the derby together?

Sam: We've only ever watched one derby together, we were in a pub in Dublin watching that boring 0-0 in April 2018, so there was nothing to fall out over. 

Kieran: I usually avoid watching the derby with any Liverpool supporters. It's unbearable.

Is it merciless ribbing from the victors after the game, or do you try to keep it a bit lower key?

Kieran: In all the derbies during Circa Waves I've not been able to give a single ribbing. Shame really. One day Sam's gonna get it, though!

Sam: In the early days we nearly broke up a couple of times after the games, so we had to come to a gentleman's agreement to keep it civil.

So how did you become a Blue/Red? Does it go way back in the family?

Kieran: I can't remember. I assume my brother picked me an Everton kit once and that was it.

Sam: I really got into football after moving to Liverpool for university. I lived with Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton fans, so I watched all the games for a while and fell in love with LFC.

Are your families split in terms of club loyalties, too?

Kieran: Yes, my dad and sister are Reds and me, my brother and mum are Blues. It's the best way to be. Makes derby day interesting.

Sam: A few of my cousins are Manchester United fans, so it's going to be good to see them over Christmas. 

Which player did you pretend to be when you were kicking a football around on the streets of Liverpool?

Kieran: Andrei Kanchelskis. I played the same position and thought I was equally as good. 

And which of the current crop would you put on the back of your shirt?

Kieran: I like Andre Gomes. He's exceptionally talented. That injury was horrible.

Sam: Andy Robertson. 

Has anyone in the band ever written a song that is secretly really about LFC or EFC?

Kieran: All my love songs are secretly about Duncan Ferguson.

Sam: I think our last album What's It Like Over There? was basically about Kieran wondering how amazing it would be if he supported Liverpool.

[embedded content]

What is your favourite derby goal?

Kieran: When Andy Johnson scored, and we won 3-0. That was a long time ago like [2006].

Sam: Divock Origi's goal last December [a 96th-minute winner] just because of how silly it was and knowing how annoyed Kieran must have been to lose the game like that.

Looking ahead to Wednesday night, where will you be watching the game?

Kieran: My mate Phil's house. He's a proper Blue. He usually punches the wall when we lose, which is good value for money.

Sam: In a pub in London somewhere.

What's your prediction for the match?

Kieran: 1-1

Arsene Wenger urges Premier League to use pitchside monitors – and Anfield to get a big screen

ThisIsAnfield.com - Wed, 12/04/2019 - 08:00

Arsene Wenger has spoken out on VAR and called on the Premier League to encourage referees to use pitchside monitors.


The former Arsenal boss, who is now chief of global football development at world governing body FIFA, believes the English top flight should change its policy on how the system is used.

At the moment, the advice from referees’ group Professional Game Match Officials Limited (PGMOL) is that officials should use the monitors sparingly and instead rely on the guidance of the VAR.

That policy was reviewed at the league’s shareholders’ meeting in November amid reports it might be changed, but the advice was left as it was.

Wenger, speaking after the annual business meeting of the game’s law-making body the International Football Association Board, clearly believes the referee should be seen to be having the final say, as they are in many other competitions, such as the men’s and women’s World Cups over the last two summers.

Asked whether there should be more consistency in the way it is used, the Frenchman told Sky Sports News: “That to me is the most important worry.

“At the moment I feel like the referee needs to have a monitor to check if he was right or wrong.

“You should give the referee the possibility to do it. Then after to explain the decision on the screen.

“At the moment you have two big clubs (Manchester United and Liverpool) with no screens. That is a problem that has to be resolved. I would like the decision to be explained on the screen.”

Wenger felt the criticism of VAR in England was harsh.

“I think it is working much better than you think, honestly,” he said.

“I witnessed many situations before where you suffered from bad decisions, and let’s not forget it’s in the first year.

“Of course everything is not perfect and the adjustments will come, you have to educate as well the people in VAR to get the experience and to educate them—to intervene at the right moment.

“Let’s not forget that it’s video assistance for the referee. They are not the ones who should make the decision, but the ones who help the referee to make the right decision.”

A statement released from the IFAB on Tuesday afternoon said members of its technical and football advisory panels were given a “detailed update” on VAR use worldwide and “the growing demand for more immediate information about the referee’s final decisions after a VAR review.”

The members will look at “different communication options” so that supporters in the stadium and television viewers can better understand decisions that are made.

The IFAB’s annual general meeting takes place on February 29 next year, where any proposals and recommendations can become laws of the game from June 1, 2020.

Liverpool Vs Everton Preview - Derby day at Anfield as Reds begin hectic December scheduleLiverpool...

Anfield Index.com - Wed, 12/04/2019 - 07:10
The details

Venue – Anfield, Liverpool

Referee – Mike Dean

Date & Time – Wednesday, December 4th @ 20:15

Current Odds – Liverpool 4/11, Draw 4/1, Everton 15/2

_____________________________________________________________

Anfield, under the lights, the Merseyside derby, a few beers beforehand. The place is going to be rocking. Let’s hope we can paint the town red after the full-time whistle.

Form

Liverpool Form

Liverpool are 8 points clear of Leicester City at the top of the Premier League table. Manchester City are a further three points behind Leicester.

The Reds opened up this hugely impressive lead by winning 13 of their opening 14 games, only dropping points in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford in October. They have already beaten Chelsea away and Arsenal, Spurs, Manchester City and Leicester at Anfield.

Last Saturday, they again ground out the required result against Brighton. Hopefully, they can get a more straightforward three points against Everton on Wednesday.

Everton Form

Everton are currently 17th in the Premier League and, if things don’t improve soon, they will be dragged into a relegation battle in the second half of the season.

However, I feel change is afoot at Goodison Park, whether it’s for the best remains to be seen. My belief is that Marco Silva will be dismissed after Wednesday night’s derby. I think the decision has already been made in the background to get rid of Silva. The delay is because they don’t fancy tasking a newly-hired boss with the trip to Anfield for his first game.

With a record that is now worse than Ronald Koeman’s before him, Marco Silva knows he is on borrowed time. There has been much talk of David Moyes returning to the club so watch this space.

On Sunday, Everton almost helped Liverpool by taking points off Leicester City. A late winner from Kelechi Iheanacho gave Brendan Rodgers’ side the win, though.

Team news

Liverpool Team News

Alisson is suspended for this game after his red card against Brighton on Saturday. He will be available for selection again at the weekend as it is only a one-game ban.

Joel Matip and Fabinho are both out through injury. Matip should be fully fit soon but it could be mid-December. Fabinho is reported to be out until the new year.

I think Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will start his second game in a row. ‘The Ox’ was unfortunate to be the player sacrificed for Adrian’s introduction after Alisson’s red card against Brighton on Saturday.

Everton Team News

Everton have a few players out through injury. Seamus Coleman, Andre Gomes and Jean-Philippe Gbamin are all missing. Fabian Delph and Theo Walcott are both serious doubts while Beni Baningime will face a late fitness test.

The Toffees do not have any players suspended for this game.

Silva normally sets his side out in a 4-2-3-1 formation. It should be the same at Anfield.

Predicted lineups

Liverpool XI (4-3-3) – Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain; Salah, Firmino, Mané

Everton XI (4-2-3-1) – Pickford; Sidibe, Keane, Mina, Digne; Davies, Schneiderlin; Iwobi, Sigurdsson, Richarlison; Calvert-Lewin

When they last met

Everton haven’t scored against Liverpool in their last three games and they haven’t actually won at Anfield since 1999.

Last season, it was the glorious 96th-minute winner from Divock Origi which separated the sides – cue Jurgen Klopp running onto the Anfield turf to celebrate with Alisson in the middle of the pitch. Fantastic memories.

The teams drew 0-0 at Goodison Park when they last met in March.

Prediction

LIVERPOOL 2 – 1 EVERTON

It’s hard to predict any other scoreline these days. Eight of their wins in all competitions this season have been by a 2-1 score. Surprisingly, Manchester City is the only team Liverpool have beaten by more than one goal since September.

Wednesday night, Anfield will be rocking. It won’t be easy and Everton never roll over for The Reds but Liverpool should get the three points.

Reds eye further Everton misery on derby day – Liverpool vs. Everton Preview

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 12/03/2019 - 18:00

The next instalment of the Merseyside derby awaits at Anfield, where Liverpool can look to strengthen their position at the top and mount more misery on their local rivals.


Liverpool vs. Everton

Wednesday, December 4, 2019 – 8.15pm (GMT)
Anfield
Premier League
Referee: Mike Dean

With another nervy and dramatic victory under their belts in the Premier League with a 2-1 win over Brighton, Jurgen Klopp‘s Reds head into the midweek encounter with a spring in their step.

While Liverpool have yet to hit their stride so far this season, 13 wins from the opening 14 games has the Reds positioned atop of the table with an eight point gap over Leicester in second place.

And now a clash which many first look to upon the release of the fixtures for the new season awaits, with Everton visiting Anfield in yet another December meeting.

The midweek match pits two teams with contrasting starts to the campaign against one another, with Klopp’s Reds possessing just a single blemish on their league record to date while Marco Silva is feeling the mounting pressure as the Toffees sit just two points outside of the relegation zone.

Liverpool are currently 26 points better off than their local rivals and few, if any, will consider Everton favourites in the clash.

Recent meetings have proved anything but straightforward for the Reds, but current results indicates Liverpool are in prime position to heap more misery on the visitors.

The Reds rarely do anything the easy way these days, but could that be about to change on Wednesday?

(Pic by David Rawcliffe/Propaganda)

Liverpool head into the clash with few fresh concerns in the injury department from the win over Brighton, but they will be without their first-choice stopper.

Alisson‘s red card for handling the ball outside the area against the Seagulls handed him a one game suspension, ensuring an enforced change for Klopp.

After deputising for the Brazilian for 11 matches during his time on the sidelines, Adrian will make his return in between the sticks for his first league start since the win over Leicester.

The shuffle in the goalkeeping stocks is also likely to see Caoimhin Kelleher take up the position on the bench.

Meanwhile, Fabinho‘s absence for the rest of the year remains a big blow as he continues the early stages of his recovery from ankle ligament damage sustained against Napoli.

And Joel Matip is still on the sidelines with a return date yet to be determined as the boss conceded the knee injury is “not exactly how we wished” so it “will take a while.”

With the exception of Fabinho, who was to miss Brighton’s visit regardless of his injury, Klopp turned to his ‘regular’ starting XI with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starting from the off in his preferred midfield position last time out.

Although sacrificed following Alisson‘s dismissal, the 26-year-old could be in line for another start, while Naby Keita also remains an option should the boss look to add fresh legs.

Jordan Henderson occupied the No. 6 role over the weekend and is expected to fulfil the position once more alongside Gini Wijnaldum in the middle of the park, while Adam Lallana and James Milner remain as alternatives.

And the attacking contingent are all available to be called upon with Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah expected to occupy the front three positions with Divock Origi and Xherdan Shaqiri occupying the bench.

The opposition, meanwhile, will be without Seamus Coleman, Andre Gomes, Jean-Philippe Gbamin and Fabian Delph, while Theo Walcott is expected to return.

Everton have conceded the most league goals after 90 minutes so far this season (4), two of which have come in their last two games.

And their record against the Reds is not any better as Liverpool have scored more 90+ winning goals against them in the Premier League than any other team has notched against another in the competition’s history.

So will history repeat itself and Liverpool’s fondness of late goals (Origi+6 and Mane 90+4) prove to be Everton’s kryptonite once more?

Klopp’s View

[embedded content]

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the boss remained wary of an Everton side boasting a considerable amount of talent, despite their current run of form which has them languishing in the bottom half of the table:

“The table tells the full truth at the end of the season, not in these early stages.

“Come on, if you go through the Everton squad you would say that’s a really good squad, nobody denies that—not Marco, not nobody.

“Why it’s quite clicking 100 percent so far, I don’t know really.

“A few really difficult injuries, especially the [Andre] Gomes one, it’s really difficult, Delph was injured, maybe back but a very, very important player for them as well, so that’s how it is.”

Liverpool v Everton: Team news

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 12/03/2019 - 18:00

Adrian is set to start Wednesday's Merseyside derby in place of the suspended Alisson Becker, with Liverpool otherwise unaffected by injuries.

Summer signing Adrian was sent on for the final quarter-hour of last weekend’s home win against Brighton and Hove Albion following Alisson’s red card for handling outside the box.

He will therefore continue between the posts at Anfield for the 234th competitive meeting with Everton.

“My man of the match is Adrian, coming on in a game like this and having that knock of the free-kick,” Jürgen Klopp commented in between the fixtures.

“It is incredible. An ice-cold ‘keeper getting his gloves ready and then… [whistle]. That is our life. Then being in the game to make two saves.

“He saved our lives and I am happy for him he can play the derby.”

Joel Matip remains sidelined with a knee issue, while Fabinho (ankle) and Nathaniel Clyne (ACL) are Liverpool’s current long-term absentees.

“All the others are fit and available,” said Klopp at his pre-match press conference.

[embedded content]

Andy Robertson could make his 100th appearance for the Reds in all competitions.

The hosts will attempt to set a new club record on the night.

A win or draw would see Klopp’s side extend their unbeaten league run to 32 matches – bettering the previous tally under Kenny Dalglish in 1988.

Everton will welcome back Theo Walcott after he missed their trip to Leicester City last weekend due to illness.

“Theo will be OK,” said Blues boss Marco Silva. “He was sick but worked the last two sessions with the team and will be in condition to be in the squad list.”

Seamus Coleman and Fabian Delph are doubts for the short journey across Stanley Park, however.

On Tuesday, Silva said of the pair: “We will see. Coleman tried this morning again but is not in condition to be fit for the match. And Delph is not training with the team in this moment.

“Let’s see in the next few days how they both will be and if they can be fit or not for the match.”

Last match

Liverpool 2-1 Brighton and Hove Albion (November 30): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Lovren, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

Leicester City 2-1 Everton (December 1): Pickford, Digne, Sidibe, Holgate, Keane, Mina, Davies, Sigurdsson, Iwobi, Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
