Gerrard makes UEFA team of century

Steven Gerrard made over 500 appearances for LiverpoolSteven Gerrard made over 500 appearances for Liverpool Steven Gerrard made over 500 appearances for Liverpool

Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard has been named in a UEFA 'team of the century'.

The former Reds captain is one of only two players in the starting XI who have never played for Real Madrid or Barcelona, along with ex-Germany and Bayern Munich defender Philipp Lahm.

UEFA say they have created "an all-time XI" by looking back on the players who have featured most in their Team of the Year.

Former Real Madrid goalkeeper Iker Casillas gets the nod between the sticks having made the team on six occasions, ahead of Gianluigi Buffon (4) and Manuel Neuer (3).

In defence are two Barcelona representatives - Carles Puyol (6) and Gerard Pique (5) - along with Lahm and Real Madrid's Sergio Ramos, who has made the team for the last five years in a row and six in total.

Barcelona also have two players in midfield as Xavi and Andres Iniesta are included in the line-up, having featured five and six times respectively in the Team of the Year.

And Gerrard, who is one of five midfielders who has been selected in the team three times, completes the midfield.

Explaining the decision, UEFA say: "Seven nominations were key to taking Liverpool's talisman into the ultimate XI at the expense of Kaka (five nominations), Ronaldinho (four), Pavel Nedved (three) and Zinedine Zidane (three)."

There are no surprises up front with the selections of Cristiano Ronaldo (11) and Lionel Messi (8).

And there's also a place for former Arsenal and Barcelona forward Thierry Henry, who was the only player to be named in the first four selections in 2001, '02, '03 and '04.

'Sturridge needs to leave Liverpool'

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - 3 hours 15 min ago

Last Updated: 21/11/17 1:43pm

Phil Thompson has suggested it may be time for Daniel Sturridge to leavePhil Thompson has suggested it may be time for Daniel Sturridge to leave Phil Thompson has suggested it may be time for Daniel Sturridge to leave

Liverpool legend Phil Thompson believes striker Daniel Sturridge needs to leave Anfield in January to have a chance of making the World Cup squad.

The 28-year-old has started just four Premier League games this season and none of the Reds' Champions League games, while he has been an unused substitute in their last two games.

Sturridge was also left out of Gareth Southgate's latest squad for friendlies with Germany and Brazil, with Tammy Abraham and Reds team-mate Dominic Solanke preferred.

Thommo told Sky Sports: "If I was Jurgen Klopp I'd want him to stay but I understand Sturridge wanting to go. He will not go to the World Cup if he continues within the current squad status.

"As a Liverpool fan, I want to see our squad remain together because it isn't that big as it is and he does enhance it. However, on a personal side, having been a player, I'd be worried his chance is passing him by.

"This could maybe be his last World Cup, and when you look at the players who are in that squad, he can still have a major say if he can get back in there. He must be thinking he could play a part this summer.

Sturridge has scored three times in all competitionsSturridge has scored three times in all competitions Sturridge has scored three times in all competitions

"I think he'll want to play more regularly and look at his options in January. He'll look at someone like Jermain Defoe and think there is hope that he can leave and get back into the squad."

However, Thommo thinks Sturridge will either have to move to a lower-profile club or go abroad if he is to get the necessary playing time to make his case.

"I don't think one of the big six would take him so it is a big decision what he does," the Soccer Saturday pundit added. "He could also get games by going abroad."

"Defoe thought he was going to Bournemouth to play but he doesn't get in and is now out of the England squad again, so Daniel has got to think about where he is guaranteed the minutes."

Carragher: The value of Salah

Liverpool FC on Sky Sports - 5 hours 15 min ago
Jamie Carragher

Football Expert & Columnist

Last Updated: 21/11/17 1:40pm

Jame Carragher was full of praise for Mohamed Salah Jame Carragher was full of praise for Mohamed Salah

Jamie Carragher says Mohamed Salah can score 25 goals for Liverpool this season, even though he doesn't play in the centre-forward position.

The Egypt international scored twice against Southampton on Saturday to take his tally to 14 in all competitions since signing from Roma for £34million last summer.

And former Liverpool defender Carragher said Salah, who plays on the right, should be classed as a "top goalscorer" and will take the pressure off Liverpool's more traditional forward Roberto Firmino this season

He told Monday Night Football: "You think of the great goalscoring wingers and if he is here for three or four years he's on the verge of eclipsing them all.

"Robert Pires, Freddie Ljungberg and Ryan Giggs at times for Manchester United were wide players who made those runs that Salah is making across defenders, running in behind.

Mohamed Salah has scored nine Premier League goals this seasonMohamed Salah has scored nine Premier League goals this season Mohamed Salah has scored nine Premier League goals this season

"People questioned Liverpool last season that they didn't have a goalscorer and you always imagine your goalscorer as your number nine; Harry Kane for Spurs or Romelu Lukakau or Alvaro Morata at top clubs as a centre-forward who gets a lot of goals.

"Liverpool have got Firmino, but if Salah is getting the goals it doesn't matter where he's playing. If he is going to get 25 goals this season - which he looks on course to get - it's not a problem what position you get them in.

"Firmino will probably get or 10 or 12, which is a good return for a wide player. If you flip them around position-wise it's not a problem.

"Salah will take a little bit of pressure off Firmino in terms of that accusation that he doesn't get enough goals."

"Salah will take a little bit of pressure off Firmino in terms of that accusation that he doesn't get enough goals.

"They've really got a top goalscorer now."

Former Liverpool forward Craig Bellamy was also on Monday Night Football and said Salah's statistics prove he is a consistent goalscorer.

And he insists he was a very important signing by Jurgen Klopp.

Bellamy said: "With Sadio Mane going away to the Africa Cup of Nations or being injured, it was important that they got Salah in or a player like that because he will get goals.

"If you look at his record last year for Roma, he scored 19 goals and the season before that he got 15.

"He gets goals and he's been a brilliant signing for Liverpool this season."

Liverpool Football Club will again lend its support to Stonewall's Rainbow Laces campaign when Chelsea visit Anfield on Saturday.

The Rainbow Laces campaign, which runs from November 24 to December 3, will see national teams, leading clubs, top athletes, fans and grassroots players from across sport show their support for the LGBT community. It aims to make sport everyone's game and ensure that LGBT people feel welcome and included.

To show our support to the campaign, Liverpool's captain for the Chelsea game will wear a rainbow armband, there will be Premier League bespoke rainbow branded ball plinths, pitch flags, handshake and timing boards, an article in the matchday programme, LED boards and a rainbow flag will be carried onto the pitch before kick-off by Red Neighbours’ local school children.

Prior to kick-off, Merseyside Police will have a hate crime stand situated in the LFC Fan Zone - Paisley Square staffed by a small number of police officers and cadets, and Paul Amann, Founder of the LGBT Fan Group Kop Outs, will be interviewed live on stage in LFC’s Fan Zone - Paisley Square at approximately 3:45pm GMT about Rainbow Laces and Kop Outs. Members of the Kop Outs and Mersey Marauders FC will also be handing out rainbow laces to fans outside the stadium before kick-off.

Simon Thornton, equality and diversity Officer at Liverpool FC, commented: “We are proud to be supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign again this year and helping to promote inclusion, equality and diversity in sport. This is something that the Club is really passionate about and continues to work hard at making advances in.”

Kop Outs founder Amann added: "Having the club and our captain supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign gives our anthem real meaning for LGBT people, and helps LGBT people be valued as part of the LFC family."

Jurgen Klopp insists Daniel Sturridge won’t be leaving Liverpool in January

ThisIsAnfield.com - 6 hours 20 min ago

ADVERTISING

Jurgen Klopp believes Daniel Sturridge needs to put aside any concerns he may have about his place in the side for the good of Liverpool’s season.


Klopp arrived in Spain for the crucial Champions League clash with Sevilla on the back of more speculation about the future of his England striker, who will reportedly look for a move in January in an attempt to salvage his World Cup hopes with England.

Similar noises about a lack of game time and a January move were heard 12 months ago, but Klopp shrugged them off.

“I can imagine a player with his quality is not happy that he is not starting all the time, but that’s all,” said Klopp.

“The situation with the player is completely OK. At this moment we are in November and need all our players—even if he feels a little different.

“There is around one-and-a-half months before the window opens and I don’t think about things like this. There are so many games before then and I need all of them.”

ADVERTISING

As Klopp was in Spain it was no surprise to hear the local media ask about the continued speculation linking Barcelona with another move for Philippe Coutinho, who handed in a transfer request when he learned of their interest in August only for three bids from the Catalans to be rejected out of hand.

Klopp, however, brushed it aside, saying: “He is 100 percent Liverpool.”

With qualification for the knockout stage up for grabs in Spain, the Reds boss would like to exact some payback for their 2016 Europa League final defeat by beating Sevilla on their own turf.

The 3-1 reverse in Basel 18 months ago still hurts, especially having led 1-0 at half-time, and, having failed to deliver a decisive blow in September at Anfield, Klopp hopes a victory will finally provide some compensation.

Klopp has visited the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan twice before with Mainz and Borussia Dortmund and left with two draws (0-0 and 2-2), but would dearly love to silence the vociferous home crowd.

But he knows he will need a “mature” performance from his side.

“Without that you have no chance,” he said. “[Sevilla] have all the things you need, experienced strikers, quick strikers, ready for channelled balls, midfielders, [Steven] N’Zonzi, [Ever] Banega, [Jesus] Navas quick in behind. Different things they have.

“When you prepare for a game like this you think, ‘Oh my god, they are really good’. It is more interesting to face them.

ADVERTISING

“This is a tough place to come. What we did in the last month result-wise has given us confidence coming here, but that does not mean we win it.

“Our new maturity we will have to show it 100 percent in this atmosphere. We do not need to run in only one direction and win in the first second.

Stats: Salah out to emulate Suarez in Seville

LiverpoolFC.TV - 6 hours 30 min ago

Mohamed Salah could emulate Luis Suarez against Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

To find out what goalscoring feat the Reds' No.11 could equal, plus a selection of other fascinating pre-match facts from club statistician Ged Rea, read on...

If Salah nets a brace in this game, he will be the first Liverpool player since Luis Suarez in December 2013 to score two goals in three successive matches.

A victory will be enough for Liverpool to qualify for the last 16 of the tournament with a game to spare.

Liverpool have lost only two of their 19 European matches under Jürgen Klopp and are unbeaten in their last 12 continental group outings.

The Reds have scored 13 goals in the group stage so far this season. The most they have ever hit in a European group stage came in the Champions League in 2007-08, when they netted 18.

James Milner is one short of reaching 100 apperances for Liverpool.

On this day in 2015, Roberto Firmino scored his first goal for Liverpool in a 4-1 Premier League win at Manchester City.

Last Saturday's win over Southampton saw the Reds win by three goals for the fourth match in a row for the first time since 1980. They have never achieved the feat in five successive fixtures. 

Liverpool have failed to score in only two of their last 16 away games.

Klopp: What can I say about Firmino? He's like the engine of the team

LiverpoolFC.TV - 6 hours 45 min ago

Jürgen Klopp has acclaimed the form of Roberto Firmino, describing the forward as the ‘engine’ of his Liverpool team.

The No.9 has excelled during the Reds’ run of four consecutive victories, with his tireless pressing from the front causing problems for the opposition and creating openings for his team.

And though Firmino has only found the back of the net once during Liverpool’s quartet of back-to-back wins, Klopp is convinced the Brazilian soon be back on the goal trail himself.

Speaking to Liverpoolfc.com, the boss said: “What a player! What can I say? If he loses the ball, he fights for it back. If he loses it again, he fights for it.

“He looks like the engine of the team. In the game [against Southampton], he was not scoring or [was] being a step too far left or right in the goalscoring moments. Then he shoots, it’s saved but Phil scores. But he stays in the game.

“I really like how the crowd appreciate it. It’s really nice to see and he deserves it, he works so hard.

“They all work hard, but as a striker of course you always think you should score as well. He will, 100 per cent.”

Klopp continued: “I am really pleased with the squad. They have to prove themselves again [tonight], but the progress we’ve made again is pleasing.

“In this season, we settled a little bit, had a knock, but then we came back and that’s a good sign - a really good sign - so we need to carry on.

“Now, we can talk about whatever we want and if we lose [against Sevilla] we will talk about something new, but it’s exactly the same situation.

“We need the results, but the only thing we can do is be as well prepared as possible – that’s what we are and so let’s try to go there, play football and win the game.”

Gerrard: Let's send out a message v Sevilla

LiverpoolFC.TV - 7 hours 37 sec ago

Steven Gerrard has called on his Liverpool U19s side to send out a message to other teams in the UEFA Youth League when they face Sevilla in Spain on Tuesday.

With two games left to play, the young Reds are four points clear at the top of Group E with three wins and one defeat, scoring 12 goals in the process.

Therefore, victory in Spain would secure top spot in the pool and a place in the last 16 - something Gerrard hopes will inspire his players.

"Sevilla away in the UEFA Youth League is a very mouthwatering tie and on paper it was always going to be the key game in the group,” Gerrard told Liverpoolfc.com.

"It’s very important and a key game for us because if we get the win then we are guaranteed to qualify for the next stage of the competition, and that was always the task in hand and the challenge for the players.

"What an opportunity this is for the lads to travel over to Spain and put in a strong performance.”

Asked what his final message will be to the players ahead of the 3pm GMT kick-off in Seville, he added: "Go and win the game. Show everyone why you are the best team in this group and go and send a message to everyone else that could potentially be facing us in the next round.

"Every time these lads put on the shirt they have got the chance to impress the first-team staff and impress the supporters.

"The team talk is easy. Sevilla away in the UEFA Youth League, a huge game and probably one of the biggest games these lads will have played in, so go and take your chance."

Back in the opening group game in September, Liverpool beat Sevilla 4-0 at Prenton Park.

It was a brilliant team performance from Gerrard’s team, with Curtis Jones scoring twice and Herbie Kane and Conor Masterson also netting.

Asked whether he felt that was a perfect performance from his side, Gerrard said: "It was close. I’m not sure you ever get the perfect one as a coach because you are always looking for little small details to try and improve.

"I think all over the pitch we won every single battle and that’s all you can ask for as a coach and manager, but what we said to them after the game is: ‘Look, you have set and raised the bar now and every time you fall short you are going to get us coaches moaning and criticising you.’

"If we can get a performance moving forward as close to that we will be a very difficult team to play against."

Gerrard has also warned his side to be wary of the wounded animal with the Spanish outfit determined to bounce back after being outplayed by the Reds.

He added: "We know they are very good technically. Even though we fully deserved the 4-0 win we do feel that this game will be different scoreline wise.

"I do feel they were very hurt by how much they were dominated and what we did to them in the first team. Good players and good clubs want to respond and give a reaction so we expect them to come out to try and press us.

"The good thing for us is there is not really the pressure on us to press them high up or use any unnecessary energy so we will have a game plan that suits us away from home. They need the win so that means that will have to come out at us, but hopefully the lads can execute our game plan."

Gerrard will also welcome striker Rhian Brewster back to his squad after his exploits in helping England U17s win the World Cup in India.

Gerrard is pleased to have the striker back and admits it gives him a tricky selection choice after other players took their opportunity during Brewster’s absence.

"Good headaches and good selection issues, that’s what we want," he continued.

"Rhian went away with England U17s and did fantastically well and deserves all the credit he is getting at the moment.

"We will be pushing him and pushing him for a performance against Sevilla if he is selected in the starting XI. It's great to have him back in the squad because obviously when he was away our options became limited."

Emre Can’s battle for a starting spot and defensive rotations – Sevilla vs. Liverpool talking points

ThisIsAnfield.com - 7 hours 15 min ago

Liverpool travel to Sevilla knowing a win will guarantee them a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League with a match to spare.


Jurgen Klopp has a few decisions to make for his lineup at the start of an immensely busy period of matches, including big upcoming games in the Premier League.

First, though, is the UEFA Champions League tie against Sevilla which could go a long way toward sealing a last 16 place.

Is There a Sturridge Solution?

Reports have emerged again that striker Daniel Sturridge is unhappy with the amount of pitch time he is getting and is looking for a January move to bolster his World Cup chances with England.

ADVERTISING

The 28-year-old is probably the fittest he has been since the season he and Luis Suarez tore defences to shreds in 2013/14 but he is still second choice behind Roberto Firmino, who is not even a recognised centre-forward.

He represents an effective option off the bench, which appears manager Jurgen Klopp‘s preferred tactic, but could see some increased action in the busy period leading up to the new year.

How that goes may determine Sturridge’s thinking when the transfer window opens but Klopp will not countenance a departure with the possibility of an FA Cup run and involvement in the Champions League knockout stages in 2018.

In the short-term Sturridge is unlikely to get his wish for more game time in Seville – even with the weekend visit of Chelsea looming on the horizon.

What Has Happened to Liverpool’s Dodgy Defence?

Saturday’s clean sheet against Southampton was the Reds’ fifth in six Premier League matches at home, where they have conceded just one goal.

Since leaking four against Tottenham at Wembley Klopp’s side have let in just one in four matches, including back-to-back European shut-outs against minnows Maribor.

Injury to Joel Matip means Dejan Lovren and Ragnar Klavan are set to start as the centre-back pairing and they are likely to be tested more by their Spanish opponents than anyone since Spurs at Wembley.

ADVERTISING

Top-four rivals Chelsea are the visitors to Anfield for a late Saturday kick-off but the Reds boss will be focused on his first objective which is to secure Champions League qualification with a win against Sevilla.

For that reason he is likely to keep changes to a minimum.

Loris Karius will start in goal and Joe Gomez is expected to replace Trent Alexander-Arnold at right-back, in keeping with Klopp’s policy of rotating his youngsters and goalkeeper for European games, but otherwise there will only be minor tweaks.

James Milner and Emre Can, both substitutes at the weekend, could both come into midfield, although it is more likely they will be vying for just one spot, while the front three of Mohamed Salah, Firmino and Sadio Mane picks itself.

Midfielder Adam Lallana, who has not started a competitive match this season because of a thigh injury, could be on the bench to be given a run out if circumstances allow to ease him back into things ahead of Chelsea.

Liverpool have lost 1-0 on each of their last three visits to Spain, most recently against Villarreal in their 2016 Europa League semi-final first leg.

Sevilla v Liverpool: Team news

LiverpoolFC.TV - 7 hours 15 min ago

Jürgen Klopp will be unable to call on defender Joel Matip again when Liverpool take on Sevilla in Spain on Tuesday night.

The Reds will be without their No.32 for a fixture that could see them secure a place in the knockout stages of the Champions League after he sustained a knock in training last week.

However, the manager expects Matip to be in contention for Saturday's Premier League meeting with Chelsea at Anfield.

Adam Lallana could make his comeback from the thigh problem that has kept him out since pre-season, though Klopp insisted he will exercise caution when considering a return for the Englishman.

Nathaniel Clyne is the only other absentee for the visitors as he continues his recovery from minor back surgery. 

As for Sevilla, they have been left sweating on the fitness of defender Sebastian Corchia, who was forced off in the 75th minute of the weekend win over Celta Vigo with a knee strain.

However, according to local press, the Frenchman is targeting a return for the visit of the Reds, as are right-back Gabriel Mercado and attacker Joaquin Correa.

Nicolas Pareja and Daniel Carrico remain sidelined.
