Nineteen members of Liverpool's first-team squad have been called up for international duty this month.

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson are with England as Gareth Southgate’s side prepare for UEFA Nations League ties away from home against Croatia on Friday October 12 and Spain three days later.

They could come up against Reds teammate Dejan Lovren in the first game, with the defender part of the Croatia group that will also take on Jordan in a friendly on Monday October 15.

Dominic Solanke will represent England U21s in European Championship qualifiers with Andorra and Scotland on Thursday October 11 and Tuesday 16 respectively.

And Curtis Jones has been selected by England U18s; they host Sweden on October 11 and Czech Republic four days later.

Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum have two big matches with the Netherlands, who host Germany in the Nations League on Saturday October 13 and then travel to Belgium – for whom Simon Mignolet has been called up – for a friendly on October 16.

The latter will meet a familiar face before then, too, as Xherdan Shaqiri’s Switzerland face the Belgians on October 12. The Swiss’ second tie of a Nations League double-header sees them take on Iceland three days later.

In Africa Cup of Nations qualifying, Naby Keita has a double-header against Rwanda with Guinea, Mohamed Salah will represent Egypt against Swaziland home and away, and Sadio Mane’s Senegal face Sudan twice.

Fabinho on adaptation to Liverpool, helpful team-mates & ‘demanding’ Jurgen Klopp

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 09/10/2018 - 13:43

New signing Fabinho has yet to win a place in the team, but says he’s already learning at Liverpool and there’s much more to come.


The Brazilian arrived from Monaco in the summer as something of a shock signing.

A defensive midfielder first and foremost, he has so far watched on while Jordan Henderson and Gini Wijnaldum have rotated duty in the deepest role, gaining minutes with just three appearances thus far.

With James Milner now out for a month with injury, however, a midfield spot could well open up for Fabinho.

And the new No. 3 says he’s adapting well to the manager’s wishes, learning the Liverpool way—with plenty of help from his compatriots, as he told Liverpoolfc.com.

The task now, for Fabinho, is to earn a starting role in the team—and he says his manager is very demanding.

“My process to adapt to English football has been very good. Since pre-season I believe I have understood the way Jurgen Klopp plays and the way the team plays.

“My relationship with my teammates has also been very good, like Roberto Firmino, who has been helping me, and also Alisson.

“I’m playing a little bit more and that’s important to me because it’s important to adapt on the pitch by playing matches.

“It’s a new experience for me because Klopp has a different style of work from the way I’m used to – but this is something I will learn.

“I have learned a few things from him but it is just the start. He is a coach who demands a lot from his players, not only in matches but also on a daily basis in training.”

With a tough run of matches now out of the way, however, there’s every chance that Fabinho‘s opportunity comes sooner rather than later.

He’s expected to play at least once for Brazil over the international break, and that added game time will see him ready for action once he returns.

The likes of Huddersfield and Fulham await the Reds over the next month or so, as well as Red Star twice, and Fabinho will surely play a much more prominent role as he settles fully into the Liverpool team.

Virgil van Dijk on the games which will define Liverpool’s title bid

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 09/10/2018 - 12:38

Virgil van Dijk believes Manchester City have developed a new respect for Liverpool but insists it will be games against teams outside the top six which will be pivotal to the Reds’ Premier League title challenge.


City boss Pep Guardiola reined in their attacking intent during Sunday’s goalless draw at Anfield with a first-half performance in particular which was the most restrained of any since his arrival in England.

The Catalan, who experienced three chastening defeats to Liverpool last season in the Premier League and Champions League quarter-finals, was wary of being exposed by Jurgen Klopp’s side and, as a result, the match was not much of a spectacle.

While Van Dijk said it showed how much of a threat the Reds posed to the defending champions, he felt greater consistency over the course of the season would be the key to a title challenge.

“Obviously they were a bit cautious of the way we played and I think we have earned that respect,” said the Holland captain.

“We made it difficult for them and they made it difficult for us at times but that’s how it is.

“But I think it is not about these games, it is all about the other games, the difficult games which we have against mid-table and lower teams.

“We want to get as close as possible and do as well as we can but we know it is going to be hard.

“We’ve had a great start to the season and we want to keep it going.”

The usually unflappable Van Dijk was at fault for the one real incident when he lunged in on City substitute Leroy Sane and conceded a penalty, which Riyad Mahrez proceeded to blaze over the crossbar.

It did mean, however, Liverpool extended their run of not conceding a home league goal to 841 minutes stretching back to February 24 and Michail Antonio’s consolation for West Ham.

“I think to keep a clean sheet after a penalty in the last five minutes makes me a very happy man,” added the Dutchman.

“It was not smart from me personally and hopefully it will never happen again.

“Eighty-five minutes, you obviously get a bit fatigued, and that moment goes by in a split second and I decided to dive in, which is not what I would normally do.

“It was a decision I made and hopefully it will be the last time I make that decision at that time.

“We aim to improve every game and we want to win every game.

“After the international break there are three important games against Huddersfield, Red Star and Cardiff so we want to be ready for that.”

Man held in Rome after Anfield assault

Sean Cox, a father of three, was left in a coma after he was assaulted before the Champions League semi-final at Anfield By Sky News

Liverpool players held up a banner for Sean Cox after defeating Roma in the second leg Liverpool players held up a banner for Sean Cox after defeating Roma in the second leg Liverpool players held up a banner for Sean Cox after defeating Roma in the second leg

Italian police have arrested a man in Rome over the assault of a Liverpool supporter who was left in a critical condition.

Sean Cox, 53, was attacked outside Anfield stadium ahead of a Champions League match between Liverpool and Roma on April 24.

Merseyside Police have worked alongside Italian officers to arrest a 30-year-old man on a European Arrest Warrant on suspicion of assault.

The suspect, who has not been named, appeared in court in Rome on Saturday and has been remanded in custody ahead of an extradition hearing.

Two other men have already been charged in relation to the incident.

Filippo Lombardi, 21, was charged with violent disorder and grievous bodily harm and remanded in custody to appear at Preston Crown Court on Wednesday, October 10 ahead of a trial due to begin on Thursday.

Daniele Sciusco, 29, admitted violent disorder and was jailed for two-and-a-half years on August 24, 2018.

Mr Cox, a father of three, suffered a "catastrophic" head injury before the Champions League semi-final in April.

He was out of a coma but still in a serious condition in August 2018.

Sciusco, from Rome, was part of a group of "ultras" who had flown from Italy for the match.

Video footage showed the group of 25 fans, all dressed in dark clothing, going onto Walton Breck Road in Liverpool just before kick-off.

Mr Cox, from Dunboyne, Co Meath, was seen lying in the road after being attacked as fighting continued around him.

Liverpool won the Champions League semi-final match against Roma 5-2.

Fabinho: I'm learning Klopp's ways

LiverpoolFC.TV - Tue, 09/10/2018 - 10:03

Fabinho feels his adaptation to Jürgen Klopp's methods is continuing to progress well but the midfielder knows there is plenty still to learn.

The summer signing from AS Monaco has made three appearances for the club so far, most recently as a substitute during last week’s Champions League tie against Napoli.

He is currently with the Brazil national squad – along with Liverpool teammates Alisson Becker and Roberto Firmino – for friendlies with Saudi Arabia and Argentina in the coming week.

And, from there, the No.3 has reflected further on his development since joining up with the Reds and explained how recent game time helped in particular.

“My process to adapt to English football has been very good. Since pre-season I believe I have understood the way Jürgen Klopp plays and the way the team plays,” said Fabinho.

“My relationship with my teammates has also been very good, like Roberto Firmino, who has been helping me, and also Alisson.

“I’m playing a little bit more and that’s important to me because it’s important to adapt on the pitch by playing matches.

“It’s a new experience for me because Klopp has a different style of work from the way I’m used to – but this is something I will learn.

Fabinho says he is adapting well to English football and is learning to improve under Jurgen Klopp following his move to Liverpool.

The Brazilian joined the Reds from Monaco for £43.7m in May, but has featured in just three of the club's 11 matches this season.

Furthermore, he is yet to play a single minute in the Premier League - but Fabinho insists he is getting to grips with life in England.

He said: "My process to adapt to English football has been very good. Since pre-season I believe I've understood the way Jurgen Klopp plays and the way the team plays.

James Milner injury update: Midfielder set to miss a month

ThisIsAnfield.com - Tue, 09/10/2018 - 00:58

Liverpool expect to be without James Milner for a month due to a hamstring injury, according to reports on Monday night.


The vice-captain has been an integral part of the team in the opening months of the season, largely being a key starter in the centre of the park.

While Jordan Henderson and Naby Keita have rotated, Milner—along with Gini Wijnaldum—has been pretty much a staple in the Reds’ starting lineup.

Against Man City at the weekend, however, Milner’s time on the pitch was cut short, with a hamstring injury forcing him off well before half time, to be replaced by Keita.

Although the initial assessment from the player himself was hopeful, according to manager Jurgen Klopp, there were fears he could be sidelined for a significant length of time.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain a long-term absentee and neither Keita nor Fabinho yet completely up to speed in their new surroundings, a lengthy spell out for Milner could prove difficult for Klopp to manage.

But with the international break now meaning it’s two weeks before Liverpool play again, Milner could only miss as few as four matches.

The Telegraph‘s Chris Bascombe reports that the No. 7 could return “within a month,” in fact.

Liverpool’s upcoming fixtures
  • Huddersfield (a), Oct 20
  • Red Star (h), Oct 24
  • Cardiff (h), Oct 27
  • Arsenal (h), Nov 3
  • Red Star (a), Nov 6
  • Fulham (h), Nov 11

That means he could return in time for the Reds’ Champions League fixture in Serbia, though he’ll be hard-pushed to make it back for a big Premier League game at Arsenal.

Thankfully for the Reds and for Klopp, the upcoming run of games between now and mid-November should be somewhat more forgiving than the recent gruelling run.

Tottenham, PSG, Southampton, Chelsea (twice), Napoli and Man City was something of a nightmare run in terms of importance, quality faced and thus the physical and mental toll on players, and Milner had played more than most this season before his injury.

Even so, his enforced absence should mean more chances in the coming weeks for Fabinho, Keita or Xherdan Shaqiri to carve a spot for themselves in the team, as the Reds look to build on their excellent overall start to the season.

Liverpool scout PSV star Steven Bergwijn

HEAD NEWS - Mon, 08/10/2018 - 20:08

Manchester United and Liverpool are keeping close tabs on PSV Eindhoven star Steven Bergwijn, according to reports.

Bergwijn has scored 14 goals since breaking into PSV’s first-team back in 2014 and is being tipped for stardom in the Netherlands amid strong interest from Europe’s elite clubs.

The 21-year-old has impressed in PSV’s attack alongside Hirving Lozano, another player who has been linked with United in recent times.

Sport claims both United and Liverpool have had scouts in attendance to watch Bergwijn’s performances this season with a view to signing the Netherlands Under-21 international.

The youngster has a €20m (£17.6m) release clause in his contract at the Philips Stadion.

PSV boss Mark van Bommel believes Bergwijn’s feet are firmly on the ground despite the growing interest.

‘Steven has very sensible people around him,’ Van Bommel said.

‘His parents are real example parents, in the way they deal with him.

‘We talked well together during the summer. I think it’s really great. Perhaps already a top European player. Yes, already.’

Who has the worst penalty conversion rate in the Premier League? Which side scored 17 second-half goals in a row? Martin has the stats...

Sky Sports commentator Martin Tyler has the answers to those questions - and don't forget to try his tricky teaser in the video above.

Got a question for Martin? Tweet @SkySportsPL with the hashtag #TylersTeasers and the voice of football could be answering your question next week!

Tyler's starting stat - City's Anfield agony 2:59 Highlights from Liverpool's goalless draw against Manchester City in the Premier League. Highlights from Liverpool's goalless draw against Manchester City in the Premier League.

Manchester City's Anfield agony continued after Riyad Mahrez's penalty miss on Super Sunday. Their record in the Premier League at Anfield reads W1 D6 L15. They did, however, end a run of five consecutive league defeats at Anfield since a 2-2 draw in August 2012 when they were the defending champions.

Their only win came in May 2003 when they won 2-1. That's their only win at Liverpool in the league since December 1981. Their record since that game reads P28 W1 D9 L18.

This was the first time Liverpool have failed to score at home to Man City in the league since a 0-0 draw in August 1986.

Sergio Aguero has still not scored in 10 appearances at Anfield for either Atletico Madrid or Man City. He has still not won there either, drawing four and losing six.

Liverpool are now unbeaten in 25 games at home (W16 D9) in the Premier League since April 2017. Man City have lost only one of their last 26 Premier League away games. That was the 4-3 defeat at Anfield last season.

Liverpool have not conceded in their last nine Premier League home games, which has run 14 hours and one minute. That leads us to our first question…

Tight at the back Virgil van Dijk has been at the heart of Liverpool's defence Virgil van Dijk has been at the heart of Liverpool's defence Virgil van Dijk has been at the heart of Liverpool's defence

Liverpool have kept nine home clean sheets in a row. Is that a Premier League record? Emma

MARTIN SAYS: The last time Liverpool conceded a league goal at Anfield was when Michail Antonio scored in West Ham's 4-1 defeat there on February 24.

Since then they have kept clean sheets against Newcastle, Watford, Bournemouth, Stoke, Brighton (twice), West Ham, Southampton and Man City.

However, they'll need three more shut-outs to match Manchester United's record of 12 home Premier League games without conceding a goal, which has stood since 1994.

They had clean sheets in the last three home games of the 1993/94 season and then the first nine games of 1994/95 before Nottingham Forest's Stan Collymore ended the streak on December 17, 1994.

Liverpool will need clean sheets at home to Cardiff, Fulham and Everton to match that record - and then they could break Manchester United's record by keeping a clean sheet against… Manchester United in December.

Liverpool have previously kept nine home clean sheets in a row in the Premier League under Rafa Benitez in 2006/07. They were within minutes of a 10th clean sheet on March 3 when John O'Shea scored a last-minute winner at Anfield for Manchester United.

The Sky Sports studio panel discuss the penalty incident at Anfield where Riyad Mahrez overruled Gabriel Jesus before missing the spot-kick.

Has anyone got a worse penalty record in the Premier League than Riyad Mahrez? Rob

MARTIN SAYS: Mahrez's miss for Man City against Liverpool means he has failed with five of the 12 Premier League penalties he has taken - which means he has failed with 41.67 per cent of penalties taken.

We asked Opta to look at players to have taken at least 10 Premier League penalties and only one player in the competition's history has a worse record.

That man is Juan Pablo Angel, who failed with five of the 10 penalties he took while at Aston Villa. That's a failure ratio of 50 per cent and includes two failures in one match against Fulham in 2005.

Dwight Yorke and Steed Malbranque have similar records to Mahrez, having failed with four of the 10 penalties they took in the Premier League (40 per cent), while Kevin Phillips failed to score seven of his 18 Premier League penalties (38.89 per cent).

Those who thought - including Pep Guardiola - that Gabriel Jesus should have taken the penalty, should note he has scored only one of his three penalties for Man City. He hit the post at home to Tottenham in December 2017 and had a penalty saved at home to Swansea earlier this year.

David Silva was also on the pitch at the time and had his only Premier League penalty saved by Southampton's Kelvin Davis in August 2012. Even Aguero, who had been substituted, has failed with four of his 26 Premier League penalties (and nine of his 42 Manchester City penalties in all competitions).

Perhaps the player most missed was Ilkay Gundogan, who has scored a penalty at both ends at Wembley - in the Champions League final for Borussia Dortmund against Bayern Munich and for Manchester City against Tottenham last April.

How many times have Manchester United come back from 2-0 down at half-time to win a Premier League game? Luke

MARTIN SAYS: The 3-2 win over Newcastle was the SEVENTH time Manchester United have been two or more goals behind at half-time in a Premier League game and won.

The previous six occasions were:

  • 07/11/1993: Man City 2-3 Man Utd
  • 29/09/2001: Tottenham 3-5 Man Utd
  • 25/04/2009: Man Utd 5-2 Tottenham
  • 25/01/2011: Blackpool 2-3 Man Utd
  • 02/04/2011: West Ham 2-4 Man Utd
  • 07/04/2018: Man City 2-3 Man Utd

No other team has fought back from 2-0 down at half-time in a Premier League game on more than three occasions. Liverpool, Aston Villa and Tottenham have all done it three times each.

Villa did it against Arsenal in 1998, Coventry in 2001 and Southampton in 2005; Liverpool did it against Spurs in 1999, Fulham in 2004 and Man City in 2008; and Spurs did it against Sunderland in 2001, West Ham in 2007 and Arsenal in 2010.

Arsenal, Fulham and Norwich have all fought back from two goals down at half-time to win on two occasions in the Premier League. No other side has done it more than once.

Leaving it late Matt Doherty celebrates scoring a second-half goal against Crystal Palace Matt Doherty celebrates scoring a second-half goal against Crystal Palace Matt Doherty celebrates scoring a second-half goal against Crystal Palace

Wolves' last eight PL goals have all come after half-time. Is that a record? Tom

MARTIN SAYS: You're right. Matt Doherty's 54th-minute goal at Crystal Palace followed Ivan Cavaleiro and Johnny v Southampton, Joao Moutinho v Manchester United, Raul Jimenez v Burnley, Adama Traore v West Ham, Willy Boly against Man City and Jimenez against Everton.

In fact, their only first-half goal this season came on the opening day when Ruben Neves scored one minute before half-time against Everton!

However, it's not a Premier League record.

Back in 1993/94, Manchester United scored 17 consecutive Premier League goals in the second half between September and November.

That run stretched eight matches and only ended when Ryan Giggs scored a 30th-minute goal against Norwich.

Manchester United's second-half run Date Opposition Score Scorers 25/9/93 Swindon (h) 4-2 Kanchelskis (4), Cantona (40), Hughes (51, 90) 2/10/93 Sheffield Wednesday (a) 3-2 Hughes (50, 67), Giggs (70) 16/10/93 Tottenham (h) 2-1 Keane (65), Sharpe (69) 23/10/93 Everton (a) 1-0 Sharpe (53) 30/10/93 QPR (h) 2-1 Cantona (53), Hughes (57) 7/11/93 Man City (a) 3-2 Cantona (52, 78), Keane (87) 20/11/93 Wimbledon (h) 3-1 Pallister (53), Hughes (65), Kanchelskis (80) 27/11/93 Coventry (a) 1-0 Cantona (60)

Eight is clearly a special number for Wolves… as this weekend they became the first team to name the same starting XI in eight consecutive Premier League matches.
