We live in a world where people are more active on social media than they are in real life and in such a situation, you’d think we would have no troubles in remaining connected to the people we met either in school or college.

However, a recent report from Liverpool Echo tells the heart-warming tale of two school friends reconnecting in Kiev over their mutual love for Liverpool and a pint of beer!

Raymond Low, 59, was born in Liverpool but he moved to Asia when he was 21 years old. However, he was in Kiev for the colossal Champions League final against Real Madrid and about two days before the game, Low was at the fan park where he ran into Gary Parle.

While the duo bonded over their love for Liverpool, they eventually realised that they had actually gone to the same school. After 45 years, the two friends finally met again and one can imagine the emotions that might have surged through the two men.

They were in the same class at the age of 11 in Broad Square school but once Ray joined college in Aigburth, the duo drifted apart. The report goes on to claim that Gary and Raymond will now ensure they stay in touch.

Football is indeed a delightful game to watch but sometimes, the sport can help create miracles outside the stadiums and that only adds to the magic of the beautiful game.

Salah and Mane out? – Predicted 4-3-3 Liverpool line-up to face Huddersfield Town

Published

on

Virgil van Dijk & Joe Gomez

Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Huddersfield in the Premier League

Liverpool take on a struggling Huddersfield Town in the Premier League on Saturday. While the Terriers are one of the three teams who are yet to win in the Premier League this season, Liverpool are tied level on points with league leaders, Manchester City.

The Reds are unbeaten in the league but the international break hasn’t been great. Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk, Naby Keita and Sadio Mane all picked up injuries and Jurgen Klopp might mix things up.

Liverpool drew against Manchester City last time around and it will be interesting to see how the Reds fare in this game.

Probable Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian is our first-choice goalkeeper and will start the game against the Terriers on Saturday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

Alexander-Arnold was part of the England side during the recent international break and should be up for the clash against Huddersfield.

Joe Gomez

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

Van Dijk is a sure starter for the Reds at the back. He has completely transformed our team’s dynamics and is crucial to our success.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez was excellent for England against Spain and should look to carry that form for Liverpool on Saturday.

Andy Robertson (LB)

The Scottish captain is one of the best left-backs in the league and must start for the Reds.

James Milner (CM)

Milner picked up an injury prior to the international break but should be fit for this game.

Geoginio Wijnaldum & Memphis Depay

Jordan Henderson (CM)

The captain should start the game for the Reds given that Naby Keita is out injured.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Wijnaldum scored a great goal against Germany recently and has been excellent for Liverpool so far.

Xherdan Shaqiri (RW)

Salah’s minor problem could give Shaqiri a chance to shine. The Swiss star hasn’t started many games for us, but this is the perfect tie to play him.

Roberto Firmino (ST)

The Brazilian isn’t getting as many goals as he would have liked, but he is an important player for the team and should start on Saturday.

With Mane a doubt, Klopp can opt to play Daniel Sturridge on the left wing.

Divock Origi Liverpool

James Pearce of the Liverpool Echo reports that Divock Origi could leave Anfield in the winter window. The Belgian was linked with a move away in the summer but remained at the club.

However, the 23-year-old hasn’t played a single senior minute for Liverpool, but the report adds that the Reds will demand a fee of £20million for the Belgian in January.

Wolverhampton Wanderers could make a move for the Belgian striker. The club were willing to spend £22million plus add-ons in the summer but Origi wasn’t willing to move to Molineux, as per the report.

The report adds that Everton are also interested in the 23-year-old but they have not made any official contact with Liverpool.

Borussia Dortmund were also interested in the striker (h/t Liverpool Echo) but wanted to sign him on a loan in the summer.

Origi is not getting a lot of game time this season as Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge are being preferred by Jurgen Klopp.

The Belgian needs to move out and truth be told, he hasn’t been the same since a horrible tackle by Ramiro Funes Mori in a Merseyside derby in Klopp’s first season in charge.

Origi could fetch us some decent money and hopefully, he gets the right move away from the club to reignite his career elsewhere.

Dominic Solanke

Newcastle United are interested in Dominic Solanke, according to the Newcastle Chronicle (h/t Liverpool Echo). The report claims that the club is also looking at another Liverpool striker, Divock Origi.

The club already have a couple of players on loan from English sides, Salomon Rondon and Kenedy, and would not be allowed to make another loan move in the January window.

Solanke has struggled for game time this season and hasn’t played a single minute of football for the senior side. The 21-year-old did score a goal for the Reds in the Premier League last season and made 21 appearances in the competition.

However, only five of those were starts and the youngster hasn’t featured in any of the cup games this season either. Minutes on the pitch will be tough for the Englishman as Liverpool prefer Roberto Firmino to lead the attack.

Daniel Sturridge has seen a revival in his Anfield career this season and has four goals to his name in all competitions.

Solanke does need time on the pitch to get better and it will be interesting to see if we are willing to let him leave in the winter window or not.
