Liverpool are amongst one of the most high-profile clubs who are keeping track of Manchester City starlet Javairo Dilrosun, claims a report from ESPN.

The 19-year-old Dilrosun is regarded as one of the best young players Manchester City have ever produced and has just six months left on his current deal, hence, he could leave at a relatively low price at the end of the season if a new contract extension is not agreed. Dilrosun joined Manchester City academy back in 2014 from Ajax after rejecting a host of European clubs, and the sides haven’t given up on him to date.

Dilrosun, a winger, is yet to make his first senior appearance. He has already represented their Under-18 and Under-19 teams, and is now a regular fixture for the Under-23 unit. His exploits haven’t just been with the club as he has also impressed for Netherlands in all of their youth levels. He was also a part of their Under-19 side which reached the semifinals of last summer’s European Under-19 Championship.

City recently faced a similar situation when they saw one of their most promising young stars in Jadon Sancho leave the club to join Borussia Dortmund. The primary reason cited for his move was the fact that he was yet to receive a senior call-up from Pep Guardiola.

The FIFA U-17 World Cup star eventually stopped training with the Citizens and the club, on their part, did not give him permission to speak to any British clubs. Hence, the youngster signed a contract with Borussia Dortmund.

In case of Dilrosun, it is safe to say the youngster is far from getting a first-team call-up and this is where Liverpool could come into the picture. Given that Klopp is known for backing youngsters, a move to the Merseyside club could well be on the cards. But signing Dilrosun won’t be a walk in the park given that the likes of Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, RB Leipzig and Valencia are all monitoring his situation.

Besides all this, Manchester City are well aware of Dilrosun’s capabilities. Hence, they are quite reluctant to lose the starlet. Should the time come and Dilrosun indeed decides to leave, the interested club will have to pay a fee set by a tribunal, as he has not reached the age to depart for free.

“This one is definitely the answer” – Former Tottenham boss claims this Liverpool star is the signing of the season

Published

on

Alisson Liverpool

Former Tottenham manager Tim Sherwood shared his opinion on who the best signing has been in the Premier League this season.

The Englishman went for a goalkeeper and named Alisson while discussing the signings with Robbie Savage on BT Sport (h/t Express):

“They needed to fix a problem they had, and a goalkeeper was obviously a problem for Liverpool.

“They’ve tried to sign goalkeepers in the past and it hasn’t been the answer – this one is definitely the answer.

“He’s outstanding on his feet, he sets the moves off very quickly but most importantly, he keeps the ball out the net. He makes big saves at the right time.

“He has quiet periods in games then he makes a huge save – and that is, for me, a tell-tale sign of a world class goalie.”

Alisson

Alisson has made several top quality saves since joining Liverpool. The one against Eden Hazard vs Chelsea, the point-blank save off Andre Gomes in the Merseyside derby and his latest was the incredible last-minute save in the Napoli tie.

Sherwood talked up that save in the Champions League and claimed it was Peter Schmeichel-esque. The Englishman also claimed that the Brazilian would have saved the Demba Ba goal during that incredible 2013-14 season where we missed the title.

“You can’t win zero without a good goalkeeper. Right now, Liverpool, they haven’t got the best but they’re right up there with the top three keepers in the Premier League.”

The former AS Roma keeper has conceded just 7 goals from 17 Premier League games, and it will be interesting to see if he can keep more clean sheets in the remainder of the campaign.

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

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.

Roberto Firmino of Liverpool

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.
