Liverpool training

Liverpool face their biggest test of the season as Manchester City visit Anfield on Sunday. The Reds lost their last game against Napoli and must try to win this top of the table clash.

The home side was spotted training ahead of the game and fortunately, Naby Keita was pictured in the session.

The Guinea midfielder was substituted early in the previous game but could be in the running for a starting spot on Sunday.

Mohamed Salah hasn’t been great this season with only three goals to his name. And Jurgen Klopp had a word with the forward prior to the session.

The former Roma man went through the paces and even had company, as Dejan Lovren was with the forward.

Our other forwards, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, need to be at their best on Sunday if we are to defeat Pep Guardiola’s side.

We could see some sparks from Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge too. The Englishman scored an incredible equalizer against Chelsea last weekend and could be an X-Factor from the bench.

Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez have had excellent seasons so far for Liverpool. The pair must be at their best to keep out Sergio Aguero and the rest of the City attack.

Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum could have crucial roles to play in winning the midfield battle.

 

Our goalkeeper has been great in most of the games as well. Alisson was one of the stars against Napoli and needs to at the top of his game to ensure we keep a clean sheet.

Liverpool interested in signing 27-year-old superstar from Napoli

Lorenzo Insigne

Liverpool are interested in signing Napoli superstar Lorenzo Insigne, according to Rai Sport (h/t Metro).

The Italian scored a late winner for the Serie A club in our Champions League loss a couple of weeks ago. The report adds that Chelsea are keeping an eye on the 27-year-old too and would rival the Reds for any bid on the Italian.

The attacker is known to Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri during their time at Napoli. The report adds that any team looking to sign Insigne up would have to stump a huge fee since the player has four years left on his current deal.

The attacker has seven goals and an assist in all competitions for the Serie A side, so far, and helped them to second place in the league last season.

The report adds that Klopp wants more firepower for the Reds and Insigne could be the perfect fit at Anfield.

Liverpool have Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane as quality wingers and added Xherdan Shaqiri in the summer. However, signing Insigne could make our attack one of the best in the world.

The report adds it would be difficult for Insigne to switch clubs in the winter window and we would have to wait till the summer before we make a bid for the 27-year-old.

Virgil van Dijk

Liverpool have been handed a triple boost ahead of their game against Huddersfield on Saturday. The Mirror reports that Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Mohamed Salah are certain of being fit for the Premier League game.

Milner had injured his hamstring in the 0-0 draw against Manchester City and was expected to be out of action until December, as per the report.

However, the Englishman has made a remarkable recovery, and the report adds that Liverpool’s medics have given him the all-clear to make a comeback.

Milner has to take part in full training on Thursday to have a chance of making it to the team for the Huddersfield game.

Salah and Van Dijk also had injuries during the international break. However, the Egyptian only has a slight muscle strain while the Dutch defender has been dealing with a rib injury that requires pain-killers, as per the report.

The forward is returning to Liverpool for further treatment and should participate in full training before Thursday, according to the Mirror.

Ronald Koeman shed light on Van Dijk’s problem and was quoted by the Mirror as saying:

“He spoke to the manager. The medical staff of the Dutch national team spoke to the medical staff of Liverpool and made the decision that he was playing only the Germany game and then after back to Liverpool.

“He is ready to play next weekend.”
