Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has said that Roberto Firmino didn’t feature in his side’s 1-0 defeat against Fulham because the Brazilian picked up a minor knock. Klopp also revealed why he dropped Sadio Mane to the bench as Liverpool suffered their sixth consecutive home defeat at Anfield against Fulham. Mario Lemina’s strike gave Fulham all three points against the Premier League champions. “Two changes we had to make because of little injuries, with Bobby and Ozan,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “The others [Mane, Trent] we thought it made absolute sense. We are in an intense period, and we have the opportunity now to change some players. “We’ve got now at least more sessions in the legs, so we thought it feels really well together, so that’s the plan behind it.

Mourinho Blasts Zidane Over Gareth Bale’s Form

  Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has blamed Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane, for Gareth Bale’s poor start to the campaign and accused the Frenchman of not being patient with the winger. Bale, 31, returned to Spurs last summer amid fanfare but his loan spell back at the club has not gone according to plan. In the first half of the season, Mourinho became frustrated with not being able to fully utilise the winger, while injuries also delayed a return to form. However, Bale is showing glimpses of his former self and put in a man of the match performance in the 4-0 win over Burnley, where he scored a brace and set up Harry Kane on Sunday. Bale now has four goals and four assists in as many games. When asked why it had taken the Welshman so long to get...

PSG paid a world-record fee of €222 million (£192m/$266m) to sign Neymar in 2017 from Barcelona, where he had firmly established himself among the best players in Europe. The 29-year-old has solidified that reputation at Parc des Princes over the past four years, in spite of a series of injuries and disciplinary issues, and Tite believes he has also become more of a team player since leaving Camp Nou.
