Steven Bergwijn PSV

Liverpool are keeping a close eye on PSV youngster Steven Bergwijn, according to Sport (h/t Metro).

The 21-year-old Dutch winger has made a great start to the season with four goals and four assists from eight league games.

The youngster’s form has helped PSV win their opening eight games of the league campaign. The Dutch giants are five points clear of their nearest rivals and have scored 30 goals in the Eredivisie.

The report adds that Liverpool and Manchester United have sent scouts to watch the player this season and are interested in signing him.

The 21-year-old has a €20m (h/t Metro) release clause and PSV boss Mark van Bommel believes the youngster is already a top player and has the right people around him.

The former Dutch international was quoted by the Metro as saying:

“Steven has very sensible people around him.

“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.”

The youngster joined PSV after spending a few years in the Ajax academy. Bergwijn made his senior debut for the side in 2014 and has become one of the hottest properties in the Dutch league.

“Fast becoming a legend” – Some fans laud Liverpool youngster’s performance in 3-2 win over Spain

Published

Joe Gomez

Joe Gomez put up another incredible perforce during the international break. The Liverpool youngster is a starter alongside Virgil van Dijk for the club and did a brilliant job in England’s 3-2 win over Spain.

The 21-year-old has started nine games for us in all competitions and Liverpool have only conceded three goals from eight Premier League games.

Gomez could grow even better with more games this season but the youngster was celebrating the England performance and put up an image of the team.

The Englishman should be in-line to start our game against Huddersfield at the weekend, and a number of fans showered praise on the 21-year-old for his 90 minutes against the Spanish.

Liverpool handed triple injury boost ahead of Huddersfield clash

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.

James Milner of Liverpool

James Milner

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.”

Liverpool should be favourites for the three points against the Terriers and if Salah and Van Dijk start, we should come out easy winners on Saturday.

Liverpool star cuts short international duty after picking up rib injury

Virgil van Dijk

Virgil van Dijk was amongst the goals against Germany for the Netherlands but the defender has a rib injury, as per the Liverpool Echo.

The report claims that the centre-back has returned to the club after being ruled out of the friendly against Belgium.

A statement from the Dutch team (h/t Liverpool Echo) said:

“After consultation, it was decided to use the player only for the game against Germany.”

The report adds that Liverpool will assess the injury, and we will then get an idea of the extent of his problem.

Virgil van Dijk

Van Dijk had a rib problem earlier in the season and was rested in our Carabao Cup loss against Chelsea. The Dutchman has been reliable at the back and is one of the best defenders in the Premier League.

Liverpool’s next game is against Huddersfield on Saturday, and it will be interesting to see who will play in the heart of the defence.

Jurgen Klopp can call upon Dejan Lovren or Joel Matip to partner Joe Gomez in the back as the match against the Terriers should not be the most difficult outing.

Gomez has been the other centre-back who has been brilliant for us this season and in all probability, Lovren should partner the English youngster.
