Alisson to return in goal: Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Chelsea in Premier League



Alisson Liverpool

Liverpool must be looking to bounce back from their first defeat of the season handed out by Chelsea in the Carabao Cup.

A late goal from Eden Hazard gave the Blues a 2-1 win at Anfield but the Reds made a number of changes to their regular starting XI.

Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Georginio Wijnaldum, Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Joe Gomez did not start the clash. Hence, Jurgen Klopp must push the team to deliver a brilliant response in our next game which is against the Blues on Saturday.

The Reds have a two-point lead at the top of the table and here is our predicted line-up for the huge clash.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-3-3

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson (GK)

The Brazilian didn’t play against the Blues on Wednesday and should return to the starting XI, looking to keep a fifth clean sheet.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

Another player rested for the weekend clash, Trent has to be at his best to keep the Chelsea attack quiet.

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

It will be touch and go for Van Dijk to return from his rib injury. If we want to win at the Bridge, the Dutch defender has to play.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez was also rested for the clash against the Blues but he should be looking to dominate Chelsea’s attackers on Saturday.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Alberto Moreno struggled to keep Hazard tied up and Robertson will have his hands full with the Belgian in such great form.

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Possibly our best midfielder this season, Wijnaldum didn’t play against Chelsea but has to start against the Blues on Saturday.

Jordan Henderson (CM)

Hendo was given a few minutes on the pitch in the 2-1 loss on Wednesday but our captain should start on Saturday, as we aim to make it seven Premier League wins in a row.

James Milner (CM)

It was a bit of a surprise seeing Milner start the Carabao Cup game but the Englishman was replaced after 60 minutes of the game, meaning he should retain his spot.

Mohamed Salah (RW)

Salah was a late sub in the game against Chelsea and our star winger has to start in the Premier League clash this weekend.

Liverpool Firmino

Roberto Firmino (ST)

The Brazilian came on as a substitute but should be in the starting line-up to face the Blues on Saturday.

Sadio Mane (LW)

Mane did start the Carabao Cup game but couldn’t get on the scoreboard. The Senegal star was replaced with 20 minutes to go and should start at Stamford Bridge.

(Video) Watch Alisson and Roberto Firmino provide hilarious responses in latest “Bezzies”



Roberto Firmino of Liverpool

Liverpool have come up with another Bezzies video, this time focussing on Brazilian pair Alisson and Roberto Firmino.

We had seen a similar video of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk a few weeks ago, and this one was just as brilliant between the Brazilians.

It started with Alisson answering about what Firmino would take along with him to an island, and the answer wasn’t really that surprising.

The forward answered his wife, which our keeper also guessed correctly. For Alisson’s options, the correct answer was barbecue, which Firmino got right too.

The pair were also asked what is their best body feature and which club they made their debuts for.

There were some great questions in between and Firmino confirmed that his favourite Brazilian player was Ronaldinho and not Ronaldo, while for Alisson it was goalkeeper Taffarel.

Our goalkeeper even predicted that Firmino would be a better keeper than his attacking partners Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane.

The pair seem to be in great form and in spirits ahead of our crucial tie against Manchester United on Sunday.

Liverpool interested in signing £70m-rated Bundesliga powerhouse



Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz

Liverpool face tough competition for the signing of Kai Havertz of Bayer Leverkusen, according to Sport Bild (h/t Mirror).

The 19-year-old has been on fire for the Bundesliga giants this season and has seven goals and five assists in all competitions.

The German also has a couple of international caps to his name and plays mostly as an attacking midfielder.

The report claims that Manchester City, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are all “actively” tracking the rising star.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Havertz is rated at £70m (h/t Mirror), and he is the next big thing coming out from the Bundesliga. The 19-year-old was phenomenal last season with three goals and eight assists in the Bundesliga and seems set to break that his record in this campaign.

Liverpool have dipped into the German market several times under Jurgen Klopp, and if anyone would have the inside scoop on the 19-year-old, it has to be our manager due to his spell in the Bundesliga.

The Reds could do with an attacking midfielder in the team as we don’t have someone who can do this role. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain would be the ideal player for the position but it is unlikely we will see him play any minutes this season due to his injury.

“It is going to be difficult” – Liverpool star believes Manchester United will be tough opposition



Liverpool Manchester City Georginio Wijnaldum

Liverpool play Manchester United in the biggest fixture of the weekend, and the Reds have a sizeable lead over their rivals in the Premier League.

We are 16 points ahead of the Red Devils after just 16 games, and another win will keep us at the top of the table ahead of Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp has never defeated the Red Devils during his Premier League career, and Georginio Wijnaldum spoke about the tie.

Georginio Wijnaldum

The Dutch midfielder believed we would put up a quality performance, claiming United are a good team while having a bit of a dig claiming they go out not to lose games (h/t Mirror):

“It’s a nice game. We’ll try to put in the same performance that we did against Napoli.

“Things can happen, everyone can have a bad season, it does not mean they [United] are not a good team with good players. Last season, with the same players, they finished second.

“They have good players, a good manager, and they know how to manage games and win games – or not to lose games! It is going to be difficult.”

Jose Mourinho always seems to have a plan when playing against Liverpool, whether it was his Chelsea days or his United days.
