Ederson claims Alisson is a step ahead with FIFA Best Goalkeeper award on the line

The Premier League features two of the best goalkeepers slugging it out for top honours.

David de Gea’s form has dramatically fallen over the past 12 months while Alisson and Ederson have fought it out to be Brazil’s No.1.

Alisson was in top form last season as he won the Champions League and helped Brazil lift the Copa America.

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen has been shortlisted for the FIFA Best Goalkeeper award along with the two Brazilians, however, Ederson conceded that Alisson is a step ahead of the pair (h/t Liverpool Echo):

“I think the three of us were the best, but I see Alisson one step ahead.

“He was great in the Premier League, won the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup and had a great Copa America as well.”

The Manchester City keeper added that whoever won the award would deserve it and was happy that the two Brazilians are doing well.

Alisson should land the trophy

The Brazilian was the best keeper in Europe last season and also won the UEFA award for the best goalkeeper last season.

The former AS Roma star hasn’t played for us since the opening day and hopefully, he returns from his calf injury soon.

The Brazilian has been excellent between the sticks and it is difficult to see how he will improve his record from last season.

Liverpool had the best defence in the Premier League while Alisson was possibly the best player in the Champions League final against Tottenham.

Ditching a corporate job to follow a dream isn’t easy, but when football comes calling, who can say no? Been following the beautiful game since 1998. Liverpool addict, F1 fanatic!

Liverpool trail big European giants in race for Kai Havertz

Bild (h/t Metro) reports that Liverpool are interested in Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz but face competition from several top clubs.

The 20-year-old German has been in sensational form for the Bundesliga side over the past two years and scored 17 goals in the league last time around.

His return hasn’t been that great this season, with just one goal from six games in all competitions.

Kai Havertz

Havertz is a German international and the Reds face competition from Real Madrid, Juventus, Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich in the race to sign him (h/t Metro).

The 20-year-old is contracted with the Germans until 2022, but has refused to sign an extension and could cost close to €100m, according to the report.

Liverpool trailing the other big names

The Reds could do with someone of Havertz’s abilities and we didn’t spend much in this summer window.

However, the report claims that the Premier League leaders are trailing the other clubs in the race to sign the German.

Munich and Real have the best chance of landing the Bundesliga sensation while Dortmund is an unlikely destination for the German (h/t Metro).

It will be interesting to see where Havertz ends up in the future as he needs to move away from Leverkusen to continue his development.

Liverpool is a perfect club for the 20-year-old and hopefully, the youngster can grow under Jurgen Klopp.

The Liverpool Echo adds that Werner has been a target for the Reds and was the star of the show, thanks to his brace.

The report, however, doesn’t pinpoint which player Liverpool were watching, but it was another impressive showing by Leipzig.

A Bundesliga powerhouse on the rise

We already signed one player from Leipzig in the past, with Naby Keita joining us. The Guinea midfielder has struggled for fitness since his arrival at Anfield, but the Germans have several quality players in the team.

Leipzig are also leading the Bundesliga currently and are one point ahead of Borussia Dortmund and Freiburg.

Emil Forsberg

Liverpool have been linked with Emil Forsberg in the past (h/t Metro), and Jurgen Klopp has raided Schalke in the past for Joel Matip too.

We haven’t signed many players from the Bundesliga during Klopp’s time, with Loris Karius and Ragnar Klavan being the two other big names.

Mason Mount provides positive update ahead of Liverpool clash

Chelsea’s return to the Champions League didn’t go too well as they lost 1-0 at home to Valencia.

Frank Lampard’s side also missed a penalty in the clash as the away side picked up all three points.

However, one of the talking points in the clash was Mason Mount picking up an injury after a tackle from Francis Coquelin.

Mason Mount

The former Arsenal man was only booked for a tough challenge on the English youngster, but the Metro (h/t Liverpool Echo) claims that Mount is hopeful of featuring against Liverpool on Sunday.

Chelsea host the Reds in the clash of the weekend, and it will be interesting to see if Mount features in the game.

A young side against the best in the league

The English midfielder has been impressive in a youthful Chelsea side and already has three goals from five games.

Liverpool have to be wary of the threat possessed by Lampard’s team but the Reds are the only club with a 100% winning record in the Premier League this season.

The Reds, however, were beaten in their first game of the Champions League but put up a good showing against Napoli on Tuesday.
