Liverpool’s hunt for an attacking player has hit yet another stumbling block. The Reds were linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Jese Rodriguez but reports from Italy suggest that the Spaniard could be on his way to join Roma from the Serie A.

The youngster had only moved to Paris from Real Madrid in the summer for a fee touted to be £21m. But he has not been able to get into the starting XI and has only scored twice all season so far. Corriere dello Sport claims that Jese would be joining the Rome side on loan as PSG want him to get more playing time.

This certainly does put a spanner in the works of Jurgen Klopp. The German manager has been looking for a quality attacker to bring in the winter window and Jese certainly would have fit the bill, basis the kind of play employed at the Reds.

This would be another player that seems to have decided against coming to Liverpool as Christian Pulisic and even Mahmoud Dahoud are stars that seem to be sticking to their current clubs, at least for now.

The need for Liverpool to bring in quality attacking players is certainly increasing as the Reds look to continue their great start to the season.

No Mane, more problems?

The Merseyside club will lose out on the services of Sadio Mane in the months of January and February as he will be traveling to the African Cup of Nations. The need to have quality cover and backup is a necessity as there really aren’t enough players who can make a huge difference to the side and if players such as Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge pick up injuries again, Liverpool will be in trouble.

The Reds might get a little lucky with the return of Coutinho and Sturridge in the side but they still need quality off the bench or for cover. Jese could have been a great option for the side but the Premier League club will have to try and make it without the Spaniard till the end of the season.

Quincy Promes is another player who has been on the radar for the Reds and the Dutchman could be the only player that does join the side in the winter window. The 24-year-old is a player similar to Mane’s playing style and wouldn’t cost a real fortune either.

Liverpool could still steal Jese from the grasp of Roma and if they do, maybe a Premier League title could be on the way.

Liverpool star fails to hide frustration despite celebrating PSG winner

Published

on

Mohamed Salah didn’t score in Liverpool’s thrilling 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain. Instead, he almost cost us the game.

The former Roma attacker gave the ball away as PSG scored their equalizer in the 83rd minute. However, Roberto Firmino saved us with an incredible goal in stoppage time.

A video surfaced of Salah throwing a bottle after Firmino’s goal. Although the Egyptian celebrated the winner, he was seen flinging a bottle away.

Rio Ferdinand hinted this wasn’t frustration and claimed the Liverpool attacker had his own way of celebrating. The former Manchester United defender was quoted by the Metro saying:

“I think Salah’s celebrating in his own way. His hands were up at the beginning of that. The first picture [shows] his hands were up [celebrating].”

Salah hasn’t been at his best since the start of the season and only has a couple of goals to his name. Sadio Mane has taken up the scoring mantle in his place and has five goals to his name while Firmino now has three.

The Egyptian might have felt relieved at the winner. However, the 25-year-old was responsible for Kylian Mbappe’s goal and his muted celebration could be ominous for the opposition in the coming weeks.

Salah has been taking shots and finding the open spaces but things aren’t going well for him. There is no doubt that once he starts scoring regularly, there will be no stopping him. All he needs is a bit of luck this season.

“Who did the Pirate better?” – Some Liverpool fans go crazy after Klopp copies celebration post PSG win

Published

Roberto Firmino scored the winning goal in an enthralling encounter against Paris Saint-Germain. Liverpool led 2-0 but were pegged back to 2-2 in the 83rd minute.

The Brazilian didn’t start the game but produced the telling moment in the 91st minute. Anfield went wild after the game and Firmino had another brilliant celebration in the spur of the moment.

The attacker covered his left eye after beating the PSG keeper. This could have been in reference to the eye injury he picked up against Tottenham last weekend.

Jan Vertonghen poked the Brazilian but it didn’t matter as we beat Tottenham and did the same to PSG too.

Firmino has had a number of celebrations in recent years such as “shooting the gun”, “kung-fu kicks” and taking his shirt off and getting yellow carded.

Jurgen Klopp also got into the act as he copied Firmino’s latest celebration during the post-match interviews and a number of fans reacted to the boss doing this bit.

(Video) Watch Sadio Mane completely destroy Neymar with filthy skill during Champions League clash

Sadio Mane

Liverpool’s match against Paris Saint-Germain was the pick of the clashes from the first round of Champions League fixtures and what a tie it was.

The Reds raced into a 2-0 lead, thanks to goals from Daniel Sturridge and James Milner. PSG weren’t giving up without a fight as Thomas Meunier pulled one back before half-time.

Kylian Mbappe scored in the 83rd minute but Roberto Firmino had the last laugh with the winner in the 91st minute.

The clash featured some of the best players in the world but there was one moment of brilliance from Sadio Mane.

The Senegal international couldn’t score in the game but he did destroy Neymar on the pitch. The incident happened in the first-half as Mane was attacking down the right and the Brazilian was trying to defend.

A move here, a drop of the shoulder there and poof, the Liverpool man burst into the box. Neymar was taken to the cleaners and it set the tone for the Brazilian to barely figure in the game.

Mane was excellent in the first half as we harried and bullied PSG into submission. The Senegal man didn’t score a goal but he surely made life tough for the French side.

We have started our Champions League campaign in excellent fashion and our next European tie is against Napoli in Italy.

Should Mane and the rest of the team go in with the same sort of mentality, a win against Napoli is a given. For now, we should plan for all three points against Southampton on Saturday.
