EPL: You don’t deserve to play in Champions League – Klopp blasts Liverpool players after 1-1 draw with Newcastle

  Liverpool boss, Jurgen Klopp, has lambasted his players after their disappointing 1-1 draw with Newcastle on Saturday. According Klopp, the players “don’t deserve to play in the Champions League”. Mohamed Salah gave Reds an early lead at Anfield but they failed to extend their lead after missing several chances.

Liverpool 1-1 Newcastle: Joe Willock Scores Dramatic Leveller as Reds Slip Again at Anfield

Joe Willock scored a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser as Liverpool blew the chance to move into the top four after dominating for large parts in a 1-1 draw.

With time running out Newcastle sensed an opportunity to strike and thought they equalised when Callum Wilson bundled home but VAR disallowed the goal as the ball inadvertently hit his arm before he scored.

Chelsea travel to Southampton in Saturday’s early kick-off, while Liverpool and Everton clash in a Merseyside Derby later in the day. Owen expects the Reds who lost 3-1 to Leicester City last weekend, to bounce back with victory against their rivals. “Incredibly, Liverpool come into the Merseyside Derby undefeated in their last 24 matches against Everton in all competitions at Anfield,” he told BetVictor. “Unfortunately for Everton, I think they’ll have to wait a bit longer for that Anfield win. I’m siding with the Reds to shade it in what should be an entertaining derby.” Owen also predicted that Chelsea will leave Southampton with a narrow 1-0 win, en...

EPL: How Fernando Torres Broke my Heart – Gerrard

  Former Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard, has admitted that Fernando Torres “broke his heart” by leaving Chelsea in a £50million deal in 2011. Torres scored 81 goals in 142 appearances at Anfield, before moving to Stamford Bridge on a dramatic deadline day. When asked who he preferred playing alongside between Torres and Luis Suarez, Gerrard told the Robbie Fowler podcast: “I didn’t play with Torres long enough because he went to Chelsea and broke my heart. “If you asked me who was the best player on a daily basis consistently, Suarez was an animal but my best years were alongside Torres in terms of how I felt. “I was really, really gutted (when Torres left). We’re working so hard at this point to try and get as close as we can to close the gap and challenge.” ...

Neither,” he said. “I don’t need a break. Privately, we had a tough time, that was a much longer time already and we always deal with it as a family 100%. “I am 53. I have worked ...

Klopp facing ‘real questions’ for the first time as Liverpool sweat on top-four finish, claims Carragher

The Reds legend feels Champions League qualification is no guarantee for the reigning Premier League champions as they scratch around for form Jurgen Klopp is facing “real questions” for the first time in his Liverpool reign, says Jamie Carragher, with the Reds left sweating on a top-four finish as they struggle for form in 2021.

A fourth-place standing has been taken up as a result, with five sides within five points of Klopp’s title holders, and Carragher fears Champions League qualification is no longer guaranteed.

EPL: Guardiola Claims Goalkeeper Ederson Could Take Man City’s Next Penalty

  Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, has said he will consider goalkeeper Ederson as the next penalty taker, after Ilkay Gundogan’s miss at Liverpool.

The German midfielder, however, made amends by scoring twice in the second half, as City recorded an emphatic 4-1 win at Anfield. “Gundogan missed a penalty, it’s like a routine against them, but we started really really well, doing what we want to do,” Guardiola told BBC Sport. Turning his attention to the penalty miss, Guardiola added: “It’s a problem that we have. In important moments, we cannot miss it, and it doesn’t matter the taker. “Again, I’m going to think abo...
