According to Daily Mail reporter Dominic King, Liverpool are not interested in signing Leicester City’s Danish goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Schmeichel, 31, was in stunning form for Denmark last weekend as he saved a Luka Modric penalty in extra-time to take Croatia to a penalty shootout. But despite saving two more spot-kicks, he was unable to keep Denmark in the World Cup.

The shot-stopper’s impressive form between the sticks has sparked speculation about his future, with AS Roma and Chelsea setting sights on him, as per the Sky Sports.

Meanwhile, Liverpool have been linked with a massive number of new goalkeepers this summer. And the Leicester City man is the latest name to emerge as a potential replacement Loris Karius.

Karius had a nightmarish Champions League final and his place appears to be under threat, while Simon Mignolet will hold talks with the Reds after the conclusion of the World Cup. But as per Dominic King, Kasper Schmeichel is Jurgen Klopp’s radar, which is surprising given his eye-catching performances in Russia.

Schmeichel has been at Leicester City since signing from Leeds United in 2011. In these last seven years, he has established himself as the undisputed No.1 for the Foxes and was a crucial component in their fairytale Premier League title win in the 2015/16 campaign.

After his impressive displays in the World Cup, his stock will certainly rise and that could see Leicester demand a lot of money for one of their prized assets. But Klopp should splash the cash on Schmeichel and get him before AS Roma and Chelsea.

Former Manchester United star believes only Liverpool can “stop” Manchester City

Gary Neville

Gary Neville has claimed that only Liverpool can stop Manchester City after the Cityzens dispatched Manchester United in the Manchester derby on Sunday.

The Reds are a couple of points behind Pep Guardiola’s side, and after Chelsea’s 0-0 draw against Everton, the former United man believes the Blues don’t have it in them to stop City.

Speaking on his podcast (h/t Liverpool Echo), the Englishman believed City were on the right track to retaining their Premier League crown:

“Winning one league is an achievement, winning back-to-back titles makes you a great team and Man City are on the brink of that.

“At this moment in time, I only feel like Liverpool can stop them.”

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Neville stated that although Chelsea are doing well under Maurizio Sarri, only the Reds were capable of stopping City.

The former Manchester United defender added that there is another problem as we seem to be the only team capable of taking points off the Cityzens.

“The problem for Liverpool is that it doesn’t look like anyone else can lay a glove on City, that’s the problem they’ve got.”

Guardiola’s men have been supreme this season but they have dropped points against Wolverhampton Wanderers and lost to Lyon in the Champions League.

“Now it’s time to celebrate my birthday” – What the Liverpool players said after 2-0 win over Fulham

Mohamed Salah Liverpool

Liverpool survived a bit of a scare early on but got the three points with a 2-0 win over Fulham on Sunday.

The win pushed us up to second in the Premier League table as Chelsea drew and Manchester City won their respective games.

It seemed that Aleksandar Mitrovic had opened the scoring in the first half but his effort was ruled offside.

Quick thinking from Alisson and Trent Alexander-Arnold helped Mohamed Salah score the first goal of the game, and the Egyptian posted an image of his boots.

The other goalscorer was Xherdan Shaqiri. The Swiss star volleyed in our second after half-time and he certainly was pleased with his performance at Anfield.

Andy Robertson provided the cross for our second, and the Scottish captain was happy that the Reds won after their midweek defeat to Red Star Belgrade.

James Milner got a few minutes on the pitch after coming on as a substitute.

Our starting midfielders were Fabinho and Georginio Wijnaldum. While the Brazilian did a great job in midfield, Wijnaldum had more to celebrate.

It was the Dutch midfielder’s birthday and Jurgen Klopp did sub him around 20 minutes before the end of the game.

Simon Mignolet hasn’t played a single minute in our Premier League campaign, but the Belgian was quick to celebrate the win too.

Liverpool’s 2-0 win over Fulham sent them to the top of the Premier League until Manchester City’s win over Manchester United in the late game.

The win took us to 30 points from 12 matches and helped us reach a small milestone too. The Liverpool Echo reports that the Reds now have the best home record of any team in the top five leagues.

Barcelona held the record with 42 unbeaten home games, but the Catalan’s surprisingly lost to Real Betis 4-3 yesterday.

The last time we lost a home Premier League game was in 2017 with Crystal Palace getting the three points.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Christian Benteke was the chief architect of our destruction that day, and the report claims that we haven’t lost the 27 games held at Anfield since.

The Reds have picked up 18 wins and nine draws from those 27 games, and this season, we have been solid at the back too.

Liverpool have conceded only one goal in their home Premier League games this season which was against Cardiff a couple of weeks ago.

Our home form has been excellent under Jurgen Klopp and we face some tough sides before the end of the year.
