“I had to run off to the toilet” – Liverpool star reveals problems during the game against Bournemouth

Georginio Wijnaldum was a welcome starter in Liverpool’s 3-0 win over Bournemouth. The Dutch midfielder missed out the previous game, when the Reds only managed to draw against West Ham. The aforementioned player scored on his return on Saturday.

Liverpool were leading 1-0 around the half-hour mark when Wijnaldum collected Andy Robertson’s ball and brilliantly lofted it over the Bournemouth keeper. More than the goal, the Dutchman provided a lot of energy and drive in midfield, and cut out the threats posed by the opposition.

Jurgen Klopp revealed that the 28-year-old was carrying a bit of a bug prior to the game, and the player himself added that he had to do something dramatic during the half-time break (h/t Mirror):

“This morning, I was still weak and had diarrhoea. And at half-time I had to run off to get to the toilet. Luckily, I managed to control it!”

The 28-year-old added that he didn’t even train with the side on Friday but managed to play the game. He further claimed that the Reds have to give it their all until the end of the season if they are to win the league.

Klopp’s men are in a great position at the moment and know the destination of the title is in their hands. As long as we do better than Manchester City and Tottenham, the Premier League would be coming to Anfield in May.

However, there are 12 more games to go, and the league season has been unpredictable, to say the least. Hence, anything can happen in the next three months.

Latest Liverpool news: Joshua Kimmich claims Liverpool are favourites ahead of Champions League clash

Bayern Munich’s German international Joshua Kimmich has installed Liverpool as favourites ahead of the Champions League round of 16 clash against Bayern Munich.

The first leg takes place on Tuesday night at Anfield, and the German claims Bayern’s inconsistency and Liverpool’s form this season makes the English side the favourites (h/t Telegraph):

“Liverpool are the favourites.

“They have lost one league game all season and have let in only 15 goals. But when you look at us, we are not as consistent as before.”

Bayern have struggled a bit this season under new manager Niko Kovac and trail Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga.

The Reds have been supreme in the league losing just once but are tied on points at the top of the table with Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp making the difference for Liverpool

Kimmich was asked a range of questions by the Telegraph and the 24-year-old spoke about Jurgen Klopp possibly becoming the Germany boss in the future.

The Bayern star claimed Klopp could coach any side in the world and was amazed regarding the connection the manager has with the fans and players.

“You can see how he pushes his players to another level. Every player is better with this coach.”

Klopp has had his run-ins with Bayern during his spell as Dortmund manager, and it will be interesting to see how we perform in the first leg on Tuesday.

Liverpool FC transfer news: Manchester United and PSG battle for Liverpool target Joao Felix

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Benfica’s starlet Joao Felix, according to the Mirror. However, there is a lot of interest in the 19-year-old, who has a release clause of £105million (h/t Mirror).

The report adds that Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are “locked” in a battle for Felix, who has been dubbed as the next Cristiano Ronaldo.

Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Arsenal and Chelsea are also admirers of Europe’s rising talent, according to the report. Ronaldo has also been seen at Benfica games, and the Mirror adds that the youngster wants to play alongside the legend one day.

However, the report claims that Juventus are not in the running for the 19-year-old with PSG and Manchester United leading the race for his signature.

Liverpool have youngsters performing away on loan

Although the Reds could do with more senior attacking options to provide cover for Mohamed Salah and co, Liverpool have a few youngsters doing well on loan this season.

Felix would cost a bomb, according to the report, while the likes of Harry Wilson and Ryan Kent have done well at Derby County and Rangers respectively.

We also have Marko Grujic doing exceptionally well at Hertha Berlin, but it seems he will be loaned out for another year.

A financial expert further weighed in on the matter and highlighted the club’s recent profits too (h/t Express):

“Liverpool are no longer a selling club. After posting profits of £125m they can resist any offers.”

Anfield is home

This is a welcome change when compared to earlier seasons where our top players went off to other clubs.

Philippe Coutinho was the most recent example as he left the Reds for Barcelona, but he did create a bit of a scene before leaving Anfield.

Luis Suarez was another player that swapped the Reds for the Catalan club while we lost the likes of Javier Mascherano and Xabi Alonso too for various reasons.
