Adam Lallana of Liverpool

It was a usual busy afternoon at Melwood on Wednesday. The cruel and tiring international break is now upon us and Liverpool players returned to their usual training ahead of Southampton’s clash on Saturday. Liverpool had a number of injury scars to care about, but there were some happy faces at Melwood as the team trained with Jurgen Klopp’s assistants Zeljko Buvac and Peter Krawietz.

The German had a hospital appointment (as confirmed by the club) to attend, hence couldn’t join the lads in training. As mentioned, Liverpool have some major injury worries, but what might prove to be a big boost ahead of a crucial period of the season, is the fact that Adam Lallana returned to first-team training following his absence since August.

Adam Lallana has returned to full team training this week.

Furthermore, Jordan Henderson – who pulled out of the England squad for the international friendlies, was seen in the training as well. Besides, another cheer in Liverpool’s fate has come in the form of Sadio Mane. The Senegalese picked up a hamstring injury while on international duty and was called back early. The winger, according to the club, has continued his rehabilitation and is expected to feature against his former club at Anfield.

Philippe Coutinho, on the other hand, skipped Brazil’s win over Japan but featured against England. The Brazilian joined his teammates in the training as well. Expect some heavy metal football at Anfield this weekend!

Liverpool fans, on their part, went into a frenzy after seeing Adam Lallana back in training. Here are some of the best reactions:

“Dont know where he goes from here now” – Some Liverpool fans concerned about youngster returning from loan deal

Published

on

Ovie Ejaria and Jurgen Klopp

Ovie Ejaria is set to return to Liverpool and end his loan spell with Rangers early. The club released a statement regarding the 21-year-old who scored two goals in 28 games for Steven Gerrard’s side. The release added this was the best move for all involved.

“However, following discussions between the two clubs, as well as Ejaria and his family, it has been determined an early return to the Reds is in the best interests of all parties concerned.”

The release thanked the Scottish giants for helping the 21-year-old Englishman, and it will be interesting to see what the next step for the youngster would be.

Ejaria is one of the highly rated players in our youth system but for some reason, things just did not work out for him at Rangers.

We have another star on loan at Rangers in Ryan Kent, and the winger has been doing pretty well at the club. Many Liverpool fans chipped in with their thoughts regarding the return of Ejaria, and here are some reactions from Twitter.

Xherdan Shaqiri shocks the Red Devils – Liverpool player ratings from 3-1 win over Man United

Liverpool 3-1 Man United: Shaqiri double seals the deal for the Reds

Jurgen Klopp finally got a win over Manchester United in the Premier League. Liverpool picked up a 3-1 win over their biggest rivals and jumped back to the top of the table.

Sadio Mane got the opener but things took a turn when Alisson spilt a cross and Jesse Lingard scored in the first half.

The Reds dominated the game but things weren’t working. However, Xherdan Shaqiri came off the bench and scored a couple of deflected goals as Anfield went wild. This was a well deserved win for the Reds and here are the player ratings from the game.

Liverpool Player Ratings

Alisson – 6.5/10

The Brazilian looked alright with the ball at his feet but his mistake could have been huge had we not won the game. Alisson looked calmer in the second half and was barely troubled.

Nathaniel Clyne – 7/10

Got a start in the Premier League and did a decent job at the back. The Englishman could be a huge bonus for us in the remainder of the season.

Dejan Lovren Mohamed Salah

Dejan Lovren – 7/10

It was great seeing Lovren not make any mistakes at the back, even though some of his passes weren’t the best.

Virgil van Dijk – 8/10

The Dutch defender did a great job at the back and was rarely troubled by the physical Romelu Lukaku.

Andy Robertson – 7.5/10

The left-back’s crosses weren’t the best but his energy down the flank was brilliant and he had a couple of crucial interceptions to keep United from scoring.

Georginio Wijnaldum – 7.5/10

Another regular Wijnaldum performance as he ran his socks off and kept things moving for the Reds.

Fabinho – 8.5/10

This was a fantastic performance from the Brazilian as he controlled the midfield and had a brilliant assist for Mane’s opener.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Naby Keita – 7/10

The Guinea midfielder was played on the left and did a good enough job with his running.

Sadio Mane – 8/10

The misses against Napoli won’t count for much now as he scored the first goal of the game. The Senegal attacker even set up the second goal, although there were a few deflections.

Roberto Firmino – 7.5/10

Again, the Brazilian was played behind Mohamed Salah but it didn’t matter as he put in a great shift by harassing the United players.

Mohamed Salah – 7/10

The Egyptian was marked well by the United defence but he kept on running, trying to create.

Substitutes

Xherdan Shaqiri – 9/10

What a substitution. The Swiss was the spark for the Reds in the second half and no one from Liverpool will care that both his goals came off deflections. He was quick on the ball on both occasions and made United pay.

“It was worth it” – Liverpool star’s verdict on Klopp’s £8,000 worth celebration against Everton

Published

on

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Alisson believes that Jurgen Klopp’s fine for his wild celebrations against Everton was “worth it”. Liverpool won the Merseyside derby, thanks to a 96th-minute winner from Divock Origi, and the goal was a little crazy too.

The ball came off the crossbar twice after Jordan Pickford failed to gather a sliced effort from Virgil van Dijk, and Origi nodded in the winner.

Alisson was celebrating in the middle of the pitch when Klopp ran out and hugged the keeper before continuing his celebrations in the dugout.

The keeper was speaking to the Times (h/t Express) as he described those moments:

“It’s hard to explain what was happening. It was at the end of the game, I was celebrating.

“Generally, I prefer not to celebrate too much so I can concentrate on the game and stay level-headed but the goal came at the end of the game so I could let it all out.”

The Brazilian couldn’t believe what the manager was doing, as he continued his celebrations before adding that the punishment was worth the madness.

“I ran to the middle of the field and did my usual celebrations, pointing to the heavens, thanking God, and then I looked to one side and I saw Jurgen and I thought, ‘What is he doing?’

“It was a great moment and I gave him a big hug. I appreciate it wasn’t the correct thing to do and he has been punished for that – but it was worth it.”

The Express adds that Klopp was given a £8,000 fine for his exuberant celebrations, but that is a small price to pay for defeating our cross-town rivals.
