Xherdan Shaqiri to start? – Predicted Liverpool line-up to face Fulham



James Milner scores for Liverpool against Arsenal

Liverpool need to bounce back after their poor showing in the Champions League against Red Star Belgrade.

The next game for the Reds is against Fulham at Anfield. The Cottagers aren’t doing too well themselves sitting at the bottom of the Premier League.

The Reds are a couple of points behind Manchester City, who play Manchester United on Sunday, and a win would put pressure on the Cityzens.

Liverpool have to be wary of Fulham’s threat, something we didn’t seem to consider in our loss during midweek.

Jurgen Klopp should look to play his strongest team, and here is our predicted line-up for Sunday’s game.

Predicted Liverpool XI

Formation: 4-2-3-1

Manager: Jurgen Klopp

Alisson Becker (GK)

The Brazilian should have done better with the second goal he conceded against Red Star and needs a clean sheet on Sunday.

Trent Alexander-Arnold (RB)

The youngster was replaced at half-time by Klopp against Red Star but should start against Fulham due to his attacking crosses.

Joe Gomez (CB)

Gomez was brought on in the second half in midweek and should start against the minnows.

Virgil van Dijk Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk (CB)

The Dutch defender had a decent enough game against Red Star and would want to help the Reds to all three points at the weekend.

Andy Robertson (LB)

Robertson didn’t have a great time against Red Star as we looked flat in attack. The Scot should keep his place in the side before we head to the international break.

Fabinho (CM)

The Brazilian has been in and out of the side but should get a run-out against Fulham on Sunday.

James Milner scores for Liverpool

James Milner (CM)

Milner wasn’t great in our loss in midweek but we should see the Englishman start as we look to get the three points.

Sadio Mane (LAM)

Mane was poor in the game against Red Star as he barely did anything of note after 10 minutes. The Senegalese needs a good game and hopefully, it comes on Sunday.

Roberto Firmino (CAM)

Firmino didn’t start in midweek and even introducing him in the second half didn’t help the side to score a goal.

Xherdan Shaqiri of Liverpool

Xherdan Shaqiri (RAM)

Shaqiri did not travel with the side to Serbia in midweek and should make it to the starting line-up for Liverpool in place of Adam Lallana.

Mohamed Salah (ST)

The Egyptian came close to scoring against Red Star as he hit the post and hopefully, he bags a goal against the Cottagers at Anfield on Sunday.

World-class Liverpool target set to move away from La Liga club in the summer



Latest Liverpool transfer news: James Rodriguez could be on his way to the Premier League

Sky Sports Germany (h/t Mirror) reports that James Rodriguez will not extend his stay with Bayern Munich and wants a new club in the summer.

The 27-year-old joined the Bavarians on a two-year loan deal in 2017 from Real Madrid, and the report claims that the Colombian has struggled to settle at the Bundesliga club.

Rodriguez has put up some great performances for the Bavarians this season and scored 7 goals in the Bundesliga.

Bayern had the choice of signing the Colombian permanently for £37million, but the report claims that Rodriguez isn’t interested in staying at the club.

The report adds that the 27-year-old will meet with agent Jorge Mendes and discuss his future move, and he isn’t interested in staying at Real Madrid too. Zinedine Zidane is back at the club, and he doesn’t see Rodriguez in his plans, according to the report.

Liverpool interested in Rodriguez

The report claims that Liverpool are interested in the Colombian but so are a couple of other Premier League sides.

Manchester United and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the 27-year-old, and the report claims that Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in Rodriguez.

Liverpool already have a fantastic first-team under Jurgen Klopp but could do with another attacking midfielder in the side.

Rodriguez’s time at Bayern has been average, to say the least, and there is no surety if he will fit into the scheme of things at Anfield.

The Reds play a high-energy game under Klopp and it will be interesting to see who we sign once the season is complete.

Boost for the Reds as Klopp provides positive news over two Liverpool stars returning to fitness



Latest Liverpool news: Jurgen Klopp provides a positive update on two Liverpool players

Jurgen Klopp provided some positive news regarding Roberto Firmino’s return to the first-team.

The Brazilian missed our last three games and is working to regain fitness ahead of the Champions League final against Tottenham.

The forward is at our training camp at Marbella, and Klopp claimed that the Brazilian still needs to be looked after (h/t

“Bobby looks really good [and] he is now part of training. It was not too long out, but of course we are still careful and want to make sure nothing happens.”

The manager added that Firmino had played in some of the smaller games with the rest of the players and it was “the first step to play football.”

“Today he was in around about 70 per cent of the session. Tomorrow he will probably be in completely, we will see, then hopefully it will be fine.”

More good news for Liverpool

Firmino returning to fitness for the final would be a huge boost to our attack.

The Brazilian has a great relationship with Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, and the trio could cause Tottenham all sorts of problems.

Klopp also spoke about another injured player as Naby Keita is making a return from an abductor injury sustained against Barcelona at the Nou Camp:

“Naby is, I would say, a bit ahead of schedule, but that doesn’t mean anything for the final.”

The German added that the player is running and doing some work, and spoke about Keita possibly playing in the Africa Cup of Nations in the summer.

“For me, it would be good if Naby would be 100 per cent fit and could play the Africa Cup of Nations, to be 100 per cent honest.”

However, Klopp confirmed that Keita would not be playing in the tournament if he wasn’t completely fit, and claimed that the medical staff would work to get the Guinea midfielder back to his best.

Liverpool have just over a week before the final and hopefully, we have Firmino ready to go against Spurs at the Wanda Metropolitano.

Promising Liverpool starlet to sign new deal and join Scottish giants on loan



Liverpool FC transfer news: Sheyi Ojo close to joining Steven Gerrard at Rangers

The Daily Star reports that 21-year-old winger Sheyi Ojo will sign a new five-year deal with Liverpool and then be on the move.

The English youngster was on loan at Reims last season but only made three starts for the Ligue 1 side. Ojo did play 18 games in all competitions for the French side, but most of them came off the bench.

The report claims that Ojo will be joining Rangers after signing a new deal with the Reds. Gers manager Steven Gerrard used his connections to sign a couple of players from Liverpool last season.

Ryan Kent was a success at the club, and the report claims that Gerrard is looking to keep the Englishman for another season.

However, Kent is expected to move to another club, and the report claims that Ojo would be his replacement for the Scottish giants.

Ojo needs to play regular football

The report claims that Ojo is highly rated at Anfield, and it should not come as a surprise if he is loaned out for another season.

The English winger will find it difficult to get regular minutes under Jurgen Klopp next season. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane could do with some competition, however, Ojo hasn’t proven his ability in a top league yet.

It will be interesting to track his development next season and see if he performs better than Kent at Rangers.
