Naby Keita

Naby Keita

RB Leipzig have made sure to remind Liverpool and their fans that Naby Keita remains a member of the German club for the remainder of the season by posting a funny update on Twitter. The Guinea international is already set to make the move to Anfield in the summer for a fee in the region of £57m.

But with Philippe Coutinho departing for Barcelona last month, Jurgen Klopp was expected to step up his efforts to bring in midfield reinforcements. Our manager wanted to bring the Guinean midfielder to the club six months prior to the expected arrival date.

However, RB Leipzig stood firm in their stance of not letting Keita leave for the Merseyside giants earlier than expected and reminded Liverpool of the same by taking a playful dig at them. After the winter transfer window officially ended yesterday, the German outfit posted a celebratory tweet. The post on Twitter included a GIF of Keita dancing with the caption: “It’s February 1st!”

With Liverpool failing in their attempts to secure an early move for Keita, the 22-year-old will remain with the Bundesliga side for the rest of the campaign. Leipzig always made it clear that they had no intention of letting the player leave the club in January, with Keita considered as a vital cog to their cause.

Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick confirmed that the player would remain in Germany until the end of the season.

“We won’t allow Liverpool to sign him early,” he was quoted by the Liverpool Echo.

“They have shown renewed interest to bring him in during this transfer window. As everyone knows, we are not a selling club, therefore it would only have been possible had we reached a mutual agreement involving an exorbitant additional fee. That is not the case.”

We will, therefore, have to wait for another four months to see Keita at Anfield. The Guinean caught the eyes of a lot of big clubs with his smashing performances for Leipzig last season. Liverpool somehow succeeded in getting a deal done for the talented midfielder in the summer.

Keita has failed to live up to the standards he had set last campaign, however, he has scored 6 goals in 22 appearances for Leipzig this season. And if I had to comment on Leipzig’s Twitter post, then it is top banter!

Liverpool equal two more records after their impressive 2-0 win over Fulham



Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Liverpool don’t seem to be the same team from last season, despite boasting an unbeaten record in the Premier League.

The Reds beat Fulham 2-0 to make it 30 points from 12 games, and are just two behind Manchester City who lead the table.

Our attack hasn’t blitzed the opposition like last season, but the numbers suggest this has been an amazing start to the Premier League campaign.

Ian Doyle wrote for the Liverpool Echo about the latest game and claimed that we have matched our best points tally after 12 games.

Doyle further claimed that our goal difference of +18 was the best in terms of Premier League seasons.

Our attack might not be firing on all cylinders but our defence has been exceptional so far. Alisson kept yet another clean sheet on Sunday, and we also equalled the record for clean sheets from 1977-78 and 1978-79.

In fact, our defence has been the reason why we have done so well this season. We barely seem to concede and Virgil van Dijk has been an exceptional purchase, alongside Alisson.

The pair combined well to start an attack against the Cottagers on Sunday. Van Dijk signalled Alisson to take a free-kick early, and that resulted in Mohamed Salah opening the scoring for the Reds.

The Reds haven’t been that great in the Champions League, and we need to ensure our qualification into the next round.

“I can’t believe it”, “Shocked” – Some Liverpool fans unsure about Mohamed Salah’s choice of T-shirt



Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Mohamed Salah is one of the biggest stars in football. The Egyptian has grown in stature since his move to Liverpool from AS Roma last season, and helped Liverpool to a Champions League final too.

The former Roma star is also one of the most recognisable faces in the world, and there have been murals, statues and paintings celebrating the success of the Liverpool attacker.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the player wants a bit of privacy and Salah tweeted an image of him travelling “incognito”.

The player wearing a Balaclava would not have been much of a problem, but many fans didn’t like his choice of shirt.

The Egyptian wore a “Project-Playboy” shirt and while we cannot say what his intentions were by sporting the shirt, some of the fans questioned his taste, while others some supported him.

“I want to help the team” – Liverpool star wants to continue helping team after impressive performance against Fulham



Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri isn’t concerned about how many goals he scores and wants to help Liverpool do well. The Swiss star started in our 2-0 win over Fulham and scored a wonderful volley after Mohamed Salah opened the scoring.

The 26-year-old was pleased with his finish and told Liverpool’s website:

“The [kind of] impact is not so important for me. I want to help the team.

“When it’s with a goal or assist, it’s always good for the team. I came in the summer to help this team go forward and make the process better.

“I’m very happy with my performances, I just have to keep going like this and train hard every day. I hope we keep going until the end like this.”

Although the former Stoke City star hasn’t started many games for Liverpool, the stats are pretty decent for the 26-year-old.

The attacker already has two goals and three assists from four starts, and his performances should put forward his case of starting more games.

The Swiss attacker was the cheapest transfer we made in the summer, but he looks a quality purchase now.

Jurgen Klopp changed his formation to fit Shaqiri into the starting XI against Fulham. However, the Swiss star was the X Factor in our win over the Cottagers, and hopefully, he keeps getting the starts after the international break too.
