Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson returns to training ahead of trip to Swansea

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 17:17

Jordan Henderson is back in training with the first team, with the Liverpool captain having been sidelined through injury since December 22.


The No. 14 has been absent from the midfield line since going off against Arsenal, missing four Premier League matches and the FA Cup win over Everton since then.

In his absence, the centre of the park has changed somewhat, with Philippe Coutinho being sold, Emre Can taking over as the regular No. 6 and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain moving in from a wing role to the centre on more than one occasion.

Now Jurgen Klopp will find his options boosted once more with the news that Henderson has returned to first-team training.

The Reds don’t play again until Monday evening, leaving another three days of training ground action for Henderson to prove his fitness and be involved.

He has completed 14 full 90-minute outings in the league this season, along with a further four in cup competitions, after suffering two years of regular injuries recently.

While Henderson may have a big battle on his hands now to regain his first-team berth immediately, with performances and results impressive in his absence, there will again come a time for Klopp to rotate heavily.

Liverpool remaining fighting on three fronts heading into the second half of the season and a fully fit Henderson could play a valuable tactical role.

While he has most frequently been used as the deepest midfielder in a three this term, Henderson could perform a similar role to that which Oxlade-Chamberlain has at times as the fluid midfield switches from a three to a four, drifting into the channels in-play.

Furthermore with Emre Can‘s future still unresolved, it’s vital Klopp has all his players fit and available and fully focused on completing a successful season—hopefully with Henderson lifting silverware at the end of it.

Liverpool reject loan approach for Ben Woodburn

ThisIsAnfield.com - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 16:27

Sunderland had been hoping to sign Ben Woodburn on loan for the season, but Liverpool have rejected the approach and will keep him at Anfield.


Woodburn burst onto the scene last term, scoring in the League Cup against Leeds and playing nine times for the senior team overall.

But this year has been more about developing in training and with the U-23s, with Woodburn seeing first-team action just once.

It has led to a surge in interest in the 18-year-old with Championship sides hoping to snare his services for the second half of 2017/18.

Sunderland were the front-runners, with Chris Coleman—previously Woodburn’s boss with the Wales national team—having taken over as manager at the Stadium of Light.

But Sky Sports now report the deal is off, with Woodburn set to stay at Anfield.

Further reports suggested Jurgen Klopp put a stop to the potential move, with the Reds boss concerned at a potential lack of cover for his senior side after the sale of Philippe Coutinho.

With the likes of Danny Ings and Daniel Sturridge still featuring in the gossip columns, and Marko Grujic having gone out on loan, Woodburn could yet prove a valuable resource for the Reds.

He can feature as a second forward, a wide option or even as a No. 8 creative midfielder—all roles Coutinho took up this term prior to his departure to La Liga.

Despite just 45 minutes of senior action to his name this term, Woodburn was on the bench at Burnley recently and could also feature in the FA Cup against West Brom.

He has also captained the Reds in the UEFA Youth League, where they won five of the six group games.

Sevilla make Sturridge enquiry

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 16:26
By Sky Sports News

Last Updated: 18/01/18 1:53pm

Sevilla have made contact with Liverpool over a loan move for striker Daniel Sturridge, but are yet to make a formal offer, according to Sky sources.

Sturridge joined Liverpool from Chelsea in January 2013, but his spell on Merseyside has been blighted by a succession of injuries.

The 28-year-old has featured only nine times in the Premier League this season, with manager Jurgen Klopp preferring to play Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane in attack.

Transfer Talk: Who leads Sanchez race?

Will Manchester United beat Chelsea to the signing of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez? The Transfer Talk panel discuss.

Sky in Italy understands Inter Milan are also interested in signing Sturridge, who has 18 months remaining on his current deal at Anfield.

Klopp previously stated that Sturridge would need to put aside his concerns over a lack of first-team action for the good of the club.

"I can imagine a player with his quality is not happy that he is not starting all the time, but that's all," said Klopp.

"There is around one-and-a-half months before the window opens and I don't think about things like this. There are so many games before then and I need all of them (his players)."

Gerrard on Anfield bows, Arsenal test and making memories

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 11:41

Steven Gerrard is hoping his U18s seize their opportunity at Anfield and create memories they can cherish forever when Arsenal come to town in the FA Youth Cup fourth round on Saturday.

No members of Gerrard’s squad havepreviously had the opportunity to play in front of the Kop, and the manager anticipates a special experience for them come 3pm on Saturday.

Indeed, this is the first time since April 2013 the youth team have had a chance to run out at Anfield, though on that occasion the Reds lost to Chelsea in the first leg of their FA Youth Cup semi-final.

Ahead of Saturday, Gerrard has warned his players against the dangers of playing the occasion and not the fixture, and explained that he will urge his youngsters to go out and show their undoubted potential on the biggest stage of their fledgling careers.

Read our exclusive chat with the Liverpool U18s boss ahead of Saturday's Anfield encounter below...

Steven, the stage is set for your U18s; 3pm Saturday, FA Youth Cup fourth round versus Arsenal – it doesn’t get much better than that?

These players will never get a better stage than on Saturday, playing at Anfield in front of the new stand. Hopefully we will get a decent turnout to watch the lads, the surface is incredible. It’s what dreams are made of. When you grow up you want to play in big stadiums and there’s none better than Anfield. It’s such an iconic stadium. The lads should be licking their lips at this opportunity.

What was the reaction when you and Tom Culshaw told the squad they would be playing at Anfield?

First and foremost we had to ask for permission. To be fair to the club and the people who make these decisions they were very sharp; they were quick and they gave us this opportunity. As staff we couldn’t wait to tell the lads, but it has its pros and its cons. The pro is what a fantastic experience this is; some of these players might never get the opportunity to grace the famous turf and play in such an iconic stadium again. The downside is the Arsenal players are going to be up for it as well. We will be reminding the players that, yes, this is a fantastic opportunity for you but play the game and don’t play the surroundings. Don’t be thinking about the stadium or the dressing room - focus on your job and the process to beat Arsenal.

It's quite unusual this Saturday because there will be 11 Anfield debuts plus the possibility of more from the bench. That’s something special, isn’t it?

I think you are right because none of them have had this opportunity before and that’s another reason why we wanted them to have this Anfield experience. To grow as a player and grow as an individual you’ve got to experience different stages to play a football match in. Yes, to play at Tranmere or the Academy is important, but to take that up a notch at Anfield should help these players to develop.

On a personal level, how much are you looking forward to managing a Liverpool team at Anfield?

It’s magical and it’s great, but as I’ve said before this is not about me wanting to manage at Anfield. This is more for the players. This is more to make them grow, help them learn and give them an opportunity to sample what it’s like to play in a magic stadium. With all due respect I know Anfield like the back of my hand, more as a player of course, and it will be nice to be in the dugout as a manager... but I wish I was 17 again walking out as a player in this game rather than being a manager!

In the third round your team showed a great attitude to beat Hartlepool United 5-1. We saw with Manchester City losing to Plymouth Argyle in the competition that shock results can happen, so how pleased were you with the lads?

That’s what the FA Cup is all about at first-team level and it’s no different at this level. If you turn up with the wrong attitude and the wrong mentality, show complacency and disrespect an opponent, that’s when the banana skins happen. I think there have been three or four big sides who have gone out of this competition already and we want to try and put a decent run in. Arsenal is a tough game, it’s a 50-50 game but hopefully we will be the better team on the day and will progress. We’ve told the players that this is the biggest game of the season and we are not going to try and play it down or try and calm them down. We need it to be as big as possible to give them that experience of playing in these fixtures again.

What about the challenge of Arsenal then? At first-team level we’ve seen some enthralling encounters with them at Anfield over the years, many of them you played in…

It’s special. It’s a big fixture and it’s a big fixture on paper. There have been some tremendous games at first-team level and that filters down through all the age groups. We’ve been watching a bit of Arsenal’s games and if they keep playing the same way they have been playing then it will be a 4-2-3-1 system with a No.10 who plays off a big No.9. They have good wingers who are strong with either foot, so that’s what we will be working on this week and how we can stop that. We will also have to make the players aware that they could also do something different, so we need to do as much preparation as we can before kick-off. It’s mine and my staff’s job to make sure that every single player - both individually and collectively - is prepared for this big game.

I know you are looking for a response from the first defeat of the season last week at Tottenham. How have the lads responded in training?

The signs have been good. We have got individuals who have shown a reaction so far, but I don’t want Monday to Friday players. I’ve told the players that if you run around and you commit in an out of possession from a Monday to Friday and then don’t turn up on the Saturday, you might as well not do it all week because you get no rewards. The main stage of the job is to do it on a weekend. So, yes, I’ve been really pleased with the attitude and the reaction since the defeat. We’ve told them good teams and good players don’t get beat twice on the run so we demand a reaction, but the signs have been good.

It’s just the one defeat for this U18s group this season – to be fair, that’s pretty good going isn’t it?

It is good but the disappointing thing for me wasn’t the defeat at Tottenham because you know you are not going to go all season winning every game. I know that’s unrealistic and that would be unfair from me, but it’s the manner of how you get a defeat that leaves a bad taste. I felt like some of my players quit on me [at Tottenham]. The big leaders in the team went missing for the first time, so it was bit of a shock for me and the staff because we have had such a good season so far. But, good teams have a day off and we had a day off. We expect them to bounce back and hopefully put in the right performance against Arsenal.

There is no better way to bounce back than playing in front of the Kop…

Yes, it will be good. We’ve said to the players, 'look, you are going to get an experience, so do you want one that lives with you forever in terms of being a positive and a win so you can tell all your friends and your family?' No matter what happens in your career, if you can tell your friends and your family and people you’ve known all of your life that you have won at Anfield, what a fantastic thing to be able to say. It also has the reverse effect. If your Anfield opportunity against Arsenal doesn’t go well and you don’t turn up or don’t play well, it might live with you as well. It’s a big game for them and we don’t want to put any unnecessary pressure on them, but at the same time you can’t play a fixture like this down.

If you would like to go to Anfield on Saturday and support Gerrard's side, the Kop will be open and tickets will be priced at just £3 for adults and £1 for juniors, young adults and over 65s.

Season ticket holders and Members can gain admission free of charge but need to secure their ticket in advance online. Click here to buy your tickets.

'Oxlade-Chamberlain is not someone you want to come up against'

'Oxlade-Chamberlain is not someone you want to come up against'

LiverpoolFC.TV - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 11:15

A big character, a brave person, and not a player you want to come up against – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has not needed long to make an impression at Liverpool.

In a new series on Liverpoolfc.com, Joe Gomez talks us through the individuals that have helped to make Jürgen Klopp’s side one of the most prolific in the Premier League and Europe.

Part two turns the spotlight on Oxlade-Chamberlain, and specifically how the No.21 has used his infectious personality to positively influence a squad with major ambitions this season…

The 24-year-old made the bold move from Arsenal to Anfield on transfer deadline day last summer to join Klopp’s project ahead of what should be the peak years of his career.

He had to be patient at the beginning but with each appearance Reds fans have been afforded more frequent glimpses of the athleticism and nous that the former Southampton prodigy can provide to the team.

Six starts in the past nine games have given Oxlade-Chamberlain the platform to shine – and he repaid Klopp’s faith with his best performance to date in the 4-3 triumph over Manchester City last Sunday.

“He has integrated very well – a lot of the lads know him well from England and so on. He is a big character and a positive one within the team,” says Gomez.

His ninth-minute opener against the Premier League leaders set the tone for a determined Liverpool display at Anfield.

Deployed in a more traditional midfield role behind the front three, Oxlade-Chamberlain used his power and pace to surge into a patch of space at the edge of the City area and send a low, diagonal finish beyond the reach of Ederson.

His vision and touch later released Roberto Firmino to restore the Reds’ lead, while the manner in which he pressed and perturbed the opposition was straight from the Klopp playbook.

Watch: Oxlade-Chamberlain's best bits against City

“He is a very, very good player – and in a number of positions as well. He is not just a midfielder or an attacker, he is very versatile,” Gomez continues.

“He has shown that already by playing in the three in midfield or in the front three. In both positions he is not someone you want to come up against; he is so powerful, his speed and strength are always a threat.

“The fact that he can have that speed and strength and also be a midfielder who gets the ball down and dictates play shows what kind of player he is.”

Not that this has come as a surprise to anyone in the dressing room.

“It was only a matter of time, and it was still very quick how he has adapted. He is playing so well,” adds his compatriot.

“It shows how well he has settled in and he has adapted to the style of play. He is already an important member of the team. It’s credit to him.”

Gomez and Oxlade-Chamberlain made the step up from lower-league football to the Premier League at similar ages, the former completing his move to Merseyside within weeks of his 18th birthday and the latter seven days short of the same age at the time he joined Arsenal.

But where the defender was a top-flight novice upon arriving at Liverpool, his senior colleague signed up with six years’ worth of experience at the level.

And, according to Gomez, that means the decision Oxlade-Chamberlain made at a crossroads in his career is all the more worthy of respect.

“I’ve come from humble beginnings and I’d jump at any chance I could get to come to a club like Liverpool. He was already at the top and has been there for a number of years,” he states.

“It says a lot about him as a person to make the decision he did. Liverpool fans are the type to understand and be appreciative of that.

“To choose to come and leave a club like that, with the other options he probably had, shows what kind of club this is and that he really wants to be here. Credit to him for doing that – he has come and proven why he has been at that level for so long.”

Juventus confirm Can approach

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 02:40

Last Updated: 17/01/18 11:52pm

Juventus are trying 'all they can' to sign Emre CanJuventus are trying 'all they can' to sign Emre Can Juventus are trying 'all they can' to sign Emre Can

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta says the Serie A champions are trying "all they can" to sign Emre Can from Liverpool.

The 24-year-old's contract with Liverpool runs out on June 30, meaning he is free to sign a pre-contract agreement with a club outside of the Premier League.

Sky sources understand Can is set to hold further talks with Liverpool this month regarding his future, but Juventus are trying to convince him Turin is the best place for him to develop.

Transfer Talk: Who leads Sanchez race?

Will Manchester United beat Chelsea to the signing of Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez? The Transfer Talk panel discuss.

"Emre Can is a player whose contract is running down, so it allows us to approach him for negotiations and that is the course we have taken," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"I can't say if he could sign a new contract with Liverpool, but I can say we will try all we can to get the player. Obviously, we have to respect what the player wants."

The Germany international reached an impasse with Liverpool during the previous set of negotiations, with the stumbling block believed to be the Reds' reluctance to break their club precedent and insert a buy-out clause into any new deal.

Can's development since his £9.75m move to Anfield from Bayer Leverkusen in 2014 saw him grow in stature on the international scene and become a regular in the Germany set-up.

Speaking recently of his future, Can outlined his dedication to Liverpool while maintaining he was still in talks with several parties.

"My agent is looking after everything but I am here until the summer. I haven't signed anything (with Juventus) or anyone," said Can.

"I am talking with everyone, of course I am talking with Liverpool. Why not? I still have a contract here. It is an amazing club. What can I say? My agent does the rest."

Liverpool 'in talks' over transfer for James Rodriguez

HEAD NEWS - Thu, 18/01/2018 - 00:10

Liverpool are interesting in signing Real Madrid's James Rodriguez in a permanent deal this summer according to reports in Spain.

Don Balon claim that the Reds are among a number of clubs tracking the Colombian star and have entered into talks with his agent as they search for a replacement for Philippe Coutinho who departed Anfield this month for Barcelona.

However, with Rodriguez currently midway through his first season at Bayern Munich having agreed a two-year loan switch to the Bundesliga club last summer, Liverpool could be thwarted in their hopes of landing the player if the Bavarians refuse to send him back early to the Spanish capital.

The playmaker has turned out 20 times so far this term for Bayern and has scored goals but ironically could find the competition for places in midfielder increased in 2018-19 if they land Schalke's Leon Goretzka whose contract expires this summer and is also a Reds transfer target.

Real are keen to retrieve most of the £70million they paid Monaco for Rodriguez's services for after his exploits in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Given that Liverpool are supposedly looking for a summer signing they still have around six months to try and negotiate a deal with both the South American's parent club and his temporary employers.
