Liverpool FC Women fans reminded to get their tickets for Goodison derby

Tue, 02/04/2020 - 13:45

Liverpool FC Women supporters are reminded tickets are still available for the Reds’ section at this weekend’s Merseyside derby with Everton at Goodison Park.

Sunday’s match will mark Goodison’s first hosting of a Women’s Super League fixture after the reverse meeting at Anfield attracted a huge crowd of 23,500 back in November.

Tickets are available online here until 1pm GMT on Wednesday or at the Anfield ticket office until 5.30pm on Friday.

Adult seats are priced £6, with £3 for over 65s and juniors.

LFC Women vice-captain Niamh Fahey and midfielder Rachel Furness were recently special guests of the Lord Mayor of Liverpool, councillor Anna Rothery, to celebrate the game, which kicks off at 2pm.

The players joined Everton club captain Danielle Turner and on-field captain Lucy Graham at the Town Hall.

The Lord Mayor, who is also the mayoral lead on equality, said the games showed the city is ‘genuinely committed to equality for all’.

Rothery added: “The first game was fantastic. I attended and I saw how many people turned up and how proud they were to see the women play.

“I think there is genuinely the support there for women’s football in the city – it is now about hosting the games and ensuring that people have access to tickets.”

After a narrow 1-0 defeat at Anfield, the Reds are hoping for a very different outcome from their trip across Stanley Park.

Fahey said: “Hopefully we’ll get another good crowd in and it’ll be another great occasion for showcasing women’s football on Merseyside.

“Of course we’re hoping it’ll be a very different result this time and we’re all really looking forward to it.”

Liverpool's transfer stance on Kai Havertz revealed

Tue, 02/04/2020 - 10:44

Liverpool are not likely to sign Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen in the summer, with the Reds put off by the huge transfer fee the German will warrant.

The 20-year-old has regularly been linked with a move to Anfield over the last year and Liverpool are believed to be interested in the exciting young prospect.

However, the Independent reports that an asking price of at least £80m is far too rich for the Reds and they will look for cheaper, more left-field options when it comes to recruitment.

Liverpool are thought to see Havertz’s value at around half that amount, and will not be willing to spend big on the Germany international, especially as there is no obvious place for him in the first team.

With the Reds on course to win the Premier League for the first time in their history, Jürgen Klopp is in no rush to displace any of his first-team players, and none of his biggest players are keen to leave.

There is certainly no need to go out and break the club’s record transfer fee for a player that would not necessarily be a guaranteed starter.

If Liverpool are indeed put off a Havertz deal by the price, he is still likely to leave Leverkusen this summer, with interest from big clubs around Europe, including Bayern Munich in his homeland.

The 20-year-old scored 17 Bundesliga goals last season from midfield but has some way to go to match that this time round, with just four to his name so far this campaign.

Interview: Ki-Jana Hoever aiming to make more FA Cup memories

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 17:47

Ki-Jana Hoever is aiming to make Liverpool proud as another FA Cup opportunity beckons for the teenage defender on Tuesday night at Anfield.

A youthful Reds team, managed by U23s boss Neil Critchley, is set to host Shrewsbury Town in a fourth-round replay after the sides drew 2-2 at New Meadow last month.

It was in the third round of the same competition 13 months ago that Hoever made his senior debut for the club, replacing Dejan Lovren six minutes into a tie at Wolverhampton Wanderers – then aged just 16 years and 354 days.

And the Netherlands youth international hopes to create another special FA Cup memory by rising to the occasion against League One opponents Shrewsbury tomorrow.

“Everyone is really excited about it,” Hoever told Liverpoolfc.com.

“That we can play at home at Anfield with all the crowd and the fans. That we can show what we can do as a team, do the club proud and win the game.

“We just need to focus on our game and play the best game we can play.

“Shrewsbury gave everything the whole game [in the first meeting] and still believed when they were 2-0 down. That’s good for us to know.

“It’s just a great opportunity for us to play at Anfield. Everyone in the squad wants to win the game. We just need to focus and work hard and then we’ll do our best and hope it’s enough to win the game.”

[embedded content]

Hoever became the third-youngest player to represent the Reds at the time of his debut at Molineux on January 7, 2019.

It was an experience the No.51, who can operate on the right and in the middle of the backline, insists he will never forget.

“I wasn’t sure,” he explained, when asked if he believed he would get the call as a substitute once Lovren went down injured that night.

“Trent [Alexander-Arnold] was on the bench as well and some experienced players, so I thought maybe the manager would figure something out with them because it was so early in the game.

“I didn’t think he was going to bring me on. But when he called my name out and I needed to warm up, a lot of things were going through my mind at that moment.

“I didn’t have a lot of time to think about it and I came on straight away, which was good I think.”

Hoever’s first appearance ended in a 2-1 defeat but it marked the beginning of a year that would bring a range of development opportunities for the former Ajax player.

After winning the U17 European Championship with his country, he was in Madrid for Liverpool’s Champions League final victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

He joined the first-team squad on their summer tour to the United States and then signed a new contract shortly before the 2019-20 campaign got under way.

In September, Hoever opened his account for the club with an emphatic headed goal during the Carabao Cup win at Milton Keynes Dons and was on the bench three months later as the Reds became world champions.

“I’m still the same but I’m a bit stronger, a bit bigger and I think I’m a better player,” the Dutchman said of his evolution in the past year.

“But, of course, there are a lot of things I can still do better and I need to improve. Mentally, and also physically, I made steps – that’s good.”

Hoever does not have to look far for inspiration, of course.

Liverpool’s 4-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday extended their lead of the Premier League to 22 points with 13 games remaining, with the Reds also current holders of the European Cup, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup.

“It’s unreal what they are doing at the moment, winning that many games,” he added.

“People will say it’s normal if you beat Southampton at home [for example], but they are really hard games. Mentally they are really strong – they just keep going and keep going.

“It doesn’t matter what the media or the world are saying about the Premier League, they just keep focusing on winning their games. And at the end of the season they will see. It’s really special what they are doing.

“You can learn from everyone, the whole team, it doesn’t matter which position. They are all really experienced players, top players – world-class.

“I can learn from everyone and that’s what I try to do when I’m at Melwood or at games. I try to take in as much as possible and put it into my game.”

Press conference: Neil Critchley on FA Cup replay with Shrewsbury

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 15:02

Neil Critchley previewed the FA Cup fourth-round replay with Shrewsbury Town at a press conference on Monday afternoon.

The Liverpool U23s boss will lead a youthful side for the second meeting between the two clubs, following a 2-2 draw at New Meadow.

Read the key points from Critchley below…

On taking charge of a second first-team fixture this season and what it means to him…

Incredible, really. I never thought it would happen once, let alone twice. I’m obviously really looking forward to what hopefully will be a special night. The young players are going to get quite a unique opportunity and hopefully they go and play, in many ways, how we played against Aston Villa [in the Carabao Cup]; in a similar way but hopefully we can make more of a game of it. If the players play how I know they can play then I’m sure the support we have on the night will be right behind us. Hopefully we can make it a great night for everyone.

[embedded content]

On whether his messages to the players will change for the game…

No. I think it’s important the messages are similar, that we keep it simple and the players know what’s expected of them. We work on our process, our plan, what we can guarantee. You’re never quite sure what young players are going to produce because they are still learning their trade. They are still learning the game. But that’s the beauty of giving young players opportunity, because you never quite know. We’re coming up against experienced players who know the game better than our players, they know how to put their game into the game that’s required. But it is a great opportunity and I’m really intrigued to see how our young players do.

On discussions with Jürgen Klopp…

The manager has made [things] quite clear with his statement and what he said prior to the game. He gives myself, the staff, the players unbelievable support. I can speak to him whenever I like when I’m down here. He supports the young players unbelievably well, as he has shown so far this season. His presence, even if he isn’t there, is always felt by our younger players and by me. I also think maybe one per cent that came into his thinking around his decision [was] the way we played against Aston Villa, maybe he thought the boys deserved another opportunity.

On the inspiration young players can take from the first team…

The strength of the first team, what you see all the time, and I don’t think it gets spoken about enough – sometimes it’s hard to put your finger on it and describe it – but when you are around it you see the culture they create. That’s through the people that they are. For our players to be in and around that on a regular basis, it can’t help but rub off on them. I think that has been one of the biggest changes I’ve felt in our younger players – when they’ve had an opportunity to be in and around the senior players on a more regular basis, which a lot of them have had this season. When you talk about the season Liverpool are having, which is quite staggering, for our manager to still support our younger players and give them opportunity is quite remarkable really. There has been a real connection between the younger players and the first-team players and long may that continue.

On Shrewsbury…

They deserve their replay because of the way they performed. The boss said after they were fully deserving of the result on the evening. To be 2-0 down and stay in the game, to come back, they created a lot of problems for us. I’m sure they’ll be thinking of something similar tomorrow night. Obviously we’re going to have a different team. I think the expectation maybe for them is different coming into the game, playing against the team they are going to be facing. That’s why I think it makes it such an intriguing, exciting cup tie – because there’s a bit of the unknown around the game. I’m sure the Shrewsbury fans will travel in great numbers. I think the club has done a great job with the pricing of the tickets and it could be a full house. It should hopefully make for an exciting cup tie.

On the value of games such as this and the Carabao Cup quarter-final for developing players…

You can’t buy experiences like that. It’s probably worth a million of my coaching sessions! Taking the boys outside their comfort zone and putting them into a game like that, you learn so much about them but more importantly they’ll learn more about themselves. I was pleased with a lot of aspects of that performance [against Villa] but I also couldn’t help but be a little bit disappointed as well with the result. I thought that was a little bit harsh on us. But we also have to take lessons from that. We got some plaudits for the way we played but we didn’t do well enough in both penalty boxes. If you’re going to go into a results-driven business you’ve got to win games of football. We didn’t keep the ball out at one end and we didn’t score at the other end. That’s not a recipe for getting success. Our aim is try to do a lot better than that tomorrow night.

On the responsibility that may come to Curtis Jones and how he handles it…

I think he gave a good answer to that in the game against Everton! Self-belief is probably not one of his weaknesses. But that is also why he is who he is. He’ll be looking forward to the game tomorrow night, no doubt about that. A few of the other players have had some experience of these types of games this season – Arsenal, Everton, Aston Villa, tomorrow night. So that little bit of experience in and around the team we’re going to have, even though you’re talking about experience when Curtis has only just turned 19 and we’re going to have players who are eligible in the U18 team. People say it’s an U23s team – we’re not, we’re going to be U19, U20 at best – but a lot of people speak about young players not getting an opportunity in this country. They are going to get an opportunity tomorrow night and they have already had an opportunity this season, because that’s what the manager does. I can’t wait.

FA Cup team news: Reds to check on Yasser Larouci fitness

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 14:08

Liverpool must check on the fitness of Yasser Larouci ahead of Tuesday night's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Shrewsbury Town.

U23s manager Neil Critchley is set to take charge of a youthful Reds side at Anfield for the second meeting with the League One team after a 2-2 draw at New Meadow.

Larouci, who started that game in January, sustained an injury while representing the U23s last week but could still be in contention for the return tie.

Asked for an update on the left-back, and any other fitness concerns, at his pre-match press conference, Critchley said: “No, not in terms of injuries.

“Yasser obviously came off last week. We have today’s training session and tomorrow, so we’ll have a meeting before training today to find out the latest with Yasser. That was unfortunate.

“Hopefully he makes it. If he doesn’t, that’ll provide opportunity for one or two others – we’re quite well blessed in that area this season. Other than Yasser, that’s it.”

Birtenshaw School, Merseyside, benefits from LFC Foundation grant

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 12:30

The LFC Foundation’s Community Fund has enabled a local school to purchase specialist equipment for children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND).

Birtenshaw School, Merseyside, provides education for those aged 3-19 with significant physical impairment, complex health needs, learning disability and, or, Autistic Spectrum Conditions.

After receiving a £2000 donation from the LFC Foundation Community Fund – the school has purchased a special shower changing trolley, enabling pupils to use the custom-made hydrotherapy pool that is tailored for their needs. 

The 25-metre long hydrotherapy pool has a multi-sensory sound and light system including spotlights, matrix lights, underwater lights and projectors to facilitate sensory stimulation.

The LFC Foundation’s Community Fund was set-up using £100,000 of funds raised from last year's LFC Foundation’s Official Legends charity match against AC Milan at Anfield.

Sean Barrett, fundraiser at Birtenshaw School, Merseyside, said: “It’s all about brightening lives and building futures for young people.

“For some pupils to be able to use the pool, they have to change using a special shower trolley. As we only had one shower trolley to begin with – we were able to purchase a second one thanks to the donation made from the LFC Foundation Community Fund. 

“Birtenshaw School, Merseyside, is committed to providing opportunities for children and young people to lead ordinary lives, with the purchase of the shower changing trolley assisting them to achieve this aim. 

“The school started in September 2018 with 22 pupils and is now close to its maximum capacity of 80.” 

Thanks to the donation made through the LFC Foundation’s Community Fund, Birtenshaw School has been able to meet the growing capacity of pupils with the purchase of the shower changing trolley and has now purchased a third in recent months. 

LFC Foundation’s Community Fund will be made available again this year, with another £100k being allocated from funds raised at LFC Foundation’s upcoming legends charity game against Barca Legends at Anfield on March 28.

Timo Werner refuses to rule out PL move

Mon, 02/03/2020 - 11:52

Timo Werner has refused to rule out a summer transfer window move away from RB Leipzig, with continued links to Liverpool.

Werner is one of European's hottest properties and Premier League sides such as Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have all had links with the German striker.

The 23-year-old has netted 20 times in Bundesliga this season, in the same amount of appearances, and he is not at all surprised by the interest.

"When you score 20 goals as a 23-year-old in a season then, of course, there is interest. That's clear," the RB Leipzig striker said to German publication Kicker.

"We are going into many important games. That's what I want to focus on now. I can still contemplate my future later."

Werner has an incredible record at his current side, Leipzig, scoring 91 goals in 126 appearances for the Bundesliga side over the course of four seasons.

The German forward has admitted he sees himself playing abroad one day, but doesn't have a specific club in mind.

"What do you say if a club comes knocking in the next two weeks, a club which is one of the favourites to win the Champions League and makes an incredible offer? Most likely every player would think about it," Werner said.

"I can generally imagine playing abroad one day, although I don't have any specific club where I want to be.

"I am open for everything. I was over in America for a holiday recently and English football was on all of the time. That's an exclamation mark for the Premier League. But there are also big, famous clubs and it would certainly be fun playing there."

Peter Moore's message to LFC Women fans following postponement

Sun, 02/02/2020 - 15:29

Liverpool FC chief executive officer Peter Moore has reassured fans the club is doing everything it can to alleviate the ongoing problems with the pitch at Prenton Park.

It follows the postponement of Liverpool FC Women’s game against Birmingham City on Sunday after the referee deemed part of the surface unplayable.

Moore, also chairman of Liverpool Women, said: “We know how frustrating this is for supporters as well as the players and staff of both clubs who have put in a hard week of preparation for the game.

“I speak regularly with Mark Palios at Tranmere and we had a solid pitch on Saturday but overnight rain saw it deteriorate despite the best efforts of all the hard-working grounds staff at Tranmere acting in conjunction with our own grounds team.

“While these problems are not unique to us – with other Women's Super League games called off both on Sunday and earlier this season – we need to try to find a solution to provide our LFC Women with the surface they deserve.

“To that end we will continue to explore all the options open to us.”

LFC 4-0 Southampton: Media reaction

Sun, 02/02/2020 - 10:00

Mohamed Salah netted twice with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jordan Henderson also on the mark as Liverpool beat Southampton 4-0 at Anfield on Saturday.

The Reds moved 22 points clear at the top of the table and also equalled a Premier League record with their 20th consecutive home victory.

Here is what the media made of the game...

Paul Gorst, Liverpool Echo

Liverpool's breakthrough eventually came just two minutes into the second period when Oxlade-Chamberlain fired low from edge of the box to leave Alex McCarthy rooted. It was the midfielder's seventh of an increasingly productive campaign in front of goal and his second of the week after he netted against West Ham on Wednesday night. Those sort of figures outline what he brings to the team in the midfield. Once more Henderson was full of energy and industry, snapping into tackles and passing it around with an impressively varied range that is rarely discussed when his virtues are the topic of conversation. This was another performance that typified everything good and great about the Reds skipper this campaign. The England midfielder is in the form of his career and those calls to make him Player of the Year are only continuing to grow. The ovation he received when he made way for Adam Lallana late on spoke volumes about how much he is appreciated by the Anfield faithful.

Emma Sanders, BBC

Liverpool opened up the biggest lead by any team at the end of a day in English top-flight history with an emphatic victory over Southampton. The Reds extended their advantage in the Premier League to 22 points over second-placed Manchester City, who face Tottenham on Sunday, with a 4-0 win against Southampton at Anfield. They have also equalled City's record of 20 consecutive Premier League wins at home and only Bill Shankly's Liverpool team in 1972 had a longer winning streak on home soil in English top-flight history. It is only February 1 but Liverpool are unbeaten in 42 games, have conceded just one league goal in their last 10 matches and have 73 points from 25 games - a top-flight record.

David Lynch, Evening Standard

Liverpool could have had no complaints had they gone in at half-time behind. That they didn’t owed much to their remarkable goalkeeper Alisson Becker, who seems to put in match-winning performances even in comfortable wins. Henderson dragged his teammates up to the required level in the second half. Took his goal brilliantly and what a ball to set up the second for Salah. The Egyptian ran Southampton ragged in the second. The confidence he is playing with at the moment was summed up by the impudent finish that brought his first goal and he certainly deserved his second.
