Remember Lazar Markovic? Well, yes he is still in the squad but has been lost somewhere in spending loan tenures and reviving his career with the Reds. There is no sign of the Serbian this season despite the fact that he impressed utterly under Marco Silva at Hull City last season. However, the Serbian is back training with the first-team squad and here are some of his pictures.

As Silva moved to Watford at the beginning of the current season, there were reports claiming that Markovic will soon reunite with the Portuguese in order to revive his career. Nothing eventually turned up and Markovic decided to stay put at Anfield as he wanted to fight for his place under Jurgen Klopp. However, judging by how the likes of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Philippe Coutinho are performing, it is hard to see Markovic getting into the first-team this season.

Markovic joined Liverpool back in 2014 under Brendan Rodgers, but the Serbian literally failed to adapt himself to the rigours of the Premier League. With the arrival of Jurgen Klopp, Markovic was sent to Fenerbahce on a season-long loan. However, with him sustaining a hamstring injury in the second-half of that season, he returned to Liverpool for rehabilitation.

The following season, he was loaned out to his former club’s arch-rivals Sporting Lisbon, but with first-team opportunities hard to come by, he was recalled and was immediately sent to Hull for the remainder of the season and this is when he actually shined. It looks certain that Markovic and Liverpool, though they are not meant for each other, are somehow still together. The Serbian needs to stay fit at least during the January transfer window so that he can make a switch.

Liverpool, on their part, simply have better options and with every game becoming a must-win fixture, we cannot really afford to lose the thread and hand Markovic a Premier League start. Furthermore, right at this very moment, Liverpool cannot really hope of recouping the amount they paid for him three years back.

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

on

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.
