Fabinho and Xherdan Shaqiri to start? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Arsenal

Published

on

Xherdan Shaqiri Liverpool

Liverpool face Arsenal in an interesting clash on Saturday as the Reds look to put one of their title rivals away. The Gunners are just four points behind the Premier League leaders and were in action during midweek.

Their Carabao Cup win over Blackpool came at a price as Matteo Guendouzi picked up a red card. The youngster will miss the clash at the Emirates, while Liverpool should be the fresher side as they were not involved in cup action.

Jurgen Klopp should be able to field his strongest XI for the tie and here is our predicted line-up for the Anfield side.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson Becker (GK)

The Brazilian was beaten in our last game against Cardiff but should be up for a tougher test at the Emirates.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson was rested in the 4-1 win over Cardiff, but the Scot should return to the starting XI for this clash.

Dejan Lovren Mohamed Salah

Dejan Lovren (CB)

Lovren should stay in the side as the partner to Van Dijk in the back four. The Croatian has to be at his best as the Gunners could target him.

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

The Liverpool defender is one of the best in the world and he is a surety to start against our Premier League rivals.

Joe Gomez (RB)

Trent Alexander-Arnold was preferred in our win over Cardiff but Gomez should make a return to the side against Arsenal.

Georginio Wijnaldum Liverpool

Georginio Wijnaldum (CM)

Wijnaldum is possibly the best midfielder we have in the team, and there is no doubt he will start on Saturday.

Fabinho (CM)

Fabinho was excellent in the 4-1 win over Cardiff and might start ahead of Jordan Henderson and James Milner.

Xherdan Shaqiri (RAM)

Shaqiri didn’t start in our win over Cardiff but scored an important goal in the win over the Bluebirds.

Salah Gomez Alisson Liverpool Firmino

Roberto Firmino (CAM)

The Brazilian needs to work his socks off and make things difficult for the Arsenal defence if we are to pick up the three points at the Emirates.

Sadio Mane (LAM)

Mane scored a brace in our 4-1 win over Cardiff City and hopefully, will score a few against the Gunners too.

Mohamed Salah (ST)

Salah seemed to do well in his position as the striker, and Klopp should continue playing with the same formation.

“It’s the wrong club for him” – ESPN pundit urges American star to snub Chelsea and join Liverpool

Published

Christian Pulisic

Former Arsenal star and ESPN pundit Paul Mariner has told Christian Pulisic to snub Chelsea and join Liverpool.

The American sensation has been linked (h/t Guardian ) with a move to the Premier League with Chelsea and Liverpool interested in the winger.

Pulisic has found starts hard to come at the Bundesliga leaders and Mariner was quoted by the Express saying:

“No, don’t do it.

“It’s the wrong club for him.

“He’s just going to go into a hopper of decent footballers who eventually go out on loan.

“Is he going to get in the team on this present form? No he’s not.

The former Gunner added that Pulisic is still developing as a player and Liverpool would be great for him, especially because we have Jurgen Klopp

“If you were to ask me for a club he should go to – Liverpool.

“Klopp understands the Bundesliga, he understands what it takes to mould a player. He knows him very, very well.

“If Pulisic were to go to Liverpool, the nurturing and the way that Klopp puts his arm around players, I think it would be a fabulous move for him.”

The 20-year-old would be an incredible signing for the Reds and would add more firepower to our star-studded attack.

Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino haven’t been firing on all cylinders this season but the addition of Pulisic could change that.

The American would not come on the cheap but given he has a ton of potential and is only 20, Klopp should take a punt on the Dortmund youngster.

(Video) Liverpool star breaks down after seeing his side win 1-0 over Equatorial Guinea

Sadio Mane liverpool

Liverpool star Sadio Mane broke down in tears after Senegal’s 1-0 win over Equatorial Guinea on Saturday.

The attacker had to be helped off the pitch by his teammates despite the team winning the game. The Metro reports that Mane had the chance to double Senegal’s lead in the game but missed his chance.

Many supporters turned on the 26-year-old and booed him for the miss. When the match ended, Mane fell to the ground, tearing up.

His teammates tried to help him up but the Liverpool star fell once again before he was taken off the pitch.

Mane has struggled to perform for Liverpool this season, and it seems his form deserted him for the national side too.

Although Senegal won the game, the reaction from Mane was a little surprising. This reaction reminds us of that 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace with Luis Suarez breaking down after the match ended.

The Senegal forward is one of our most important players and we need to have him in the right frame of mind for the rest of the season.

The 26-year-old has seven goals for us this season, which isn’t a bad return, but we haven’t seen the best of our attackers yet.

Our next game is a tough tie against Watford at Vicarage Road, and the Senegalese attacker has to be at his best if we are to pick up the three points.

Bruno Roberto

Liverpool are one of the clubs keeping an eye on Brazilian sensation Bruno Roberto, according to the Daily Mail.

The 18-year-old recently played for the senior Atletico Mineiro side and is expected to follow the “lead” by Gabriel Jesus, as per the report.

Roberto plays as an attacking midfielder and has also interested the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Chelsea, as per the report.

The 18-year-old could be another great Brazilian coming through the ranks and it will be interesting to see if we follow up with our interest.

Jurgen Klopp of Liverpool

Liverpool have a few Brazilian internationals in their side with Alisson and Fabinho joining in the summer. Roberto Firmino has enjoyed a fantastic spell under Jurgen Klopp and seems to be getting better with each season under his belt.

The Reds have to be wary regarding South American youngsters as we have another Brazilian on the books, Allan, that has had trouble getting work permits in Britain.

The 21-year-old is currently on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt but hasn’t played a single competitive game for the Reds since joining in 2015.

Roberto could be a star in the making and if he wants to develop into the finished article, there is no better place than Liverpool.
