Liverpool stars train hard ahead of Newcastle game on Saturday

Liverpool will hope to end this weekend by staying on top of the Premier League as they face Newcastle United on Saturday.

The Reds are the only side with a 100% winning record after four games and can keep their gap ahead of the chasing pack by seeing off Steve Bruce’s men.

The Magpies have had a tough start under Bruce after Rafa Benitez left, but they did win against Tottenham, so Liverpool cannot take them lightly.

Adrian needs to be at his best after picking up a clean sheet against Burnley, and Newcastle would want to test the summer signing.

Trent Alexander-Arnold was seen in training and the Englishman’s crosses will be one of the keys to unlock the Newcastle defence.

The Englishman’s deflected cross opened the scoring against Burnley, and it will be interesting to see what he does on Saturday.

Andy Robertson was also pictured having some fun with Mohamed Salah, and the pair should start for us at Anfield.

Mane to bag more goals?

The talk of the last game was Sadio Mane’s outburst after being substituted. The Senegal international should also be given the nod up top, and it will be interesting to see how he performs.

Mane scored in the 3-0 win over Burnley, but the main man was Roberto Firmino. The Brazilian scored a goal and got an assist, and he could be up for more damage on Saturday.

Virgil van Dijk has looked great in the past two games and should keep things tight at the back alongside Joel Matip.

Joe Gomez has been kept out of the starting line-up, thanks to Matip, and the former Schalke star has formed a great partnership with Van Dijk.

Jordan Henderson has also had a fine start to the season, and we need another quality performance from the captain this weekend.

Liverpool also play in the Champions League in midweek, and we need to get three points against Newcastle before facing Napoli in Italy.

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.
