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.

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



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.

Liverpool keeping an eye on 18-year-old Brazilian sensation



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.
