EPL - 5 Reasons why Liverpool could 'thrash' Tottenham at Wembley!
Liverpool travels to Wembley to take on Tottenham Hotspurs as Jurgen Klopp seek to continue perfect starting form of the season with a fifth victory in a row. A lot of football fans are thinking that Liverpool will face a difficult task to overcome Spurs and they could even lose their first match, but I will tell you 5 reasons why Liverpool could come out of the clash with a huge statement. Number One Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris is ruled out Hugo Lloris will not be in goal to face Liverpool this Saturday as the Frenchman is ruled out through injury. Tottenham is very vulnerable when Lloris don't play as they concede at least twice when Lloris is not in the starting X1. Tired Players from International including Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen Harry Kane and Christian Eriksen were both involved in the two matches their respective country played and traveled a lot during the break. The fatigue could come into play in the last 20 min of the game as Liverpool will have fresh players on the bench. Lucas Moura could be left alone in attack. The Speed of Salah and Mane could be destructive! Vertongen, Alderweirld, and Sanchez are all three very good defenders but when it comes to a race then obviously Salah and Mane will run them crazy. Liverpool could operate on the counter-attack in the last 25 min and that is enough for a team of Liverpool quality to score at least three goals. Jurgen Klopp yet to win an official match at Wembley This could be very motivating for the entire Liverpool team as Jurgen Klopp is yet to win an official match as manager at Wembley. He lost as Dortmund manager in 2013 Champions League final, lost again against Man City in Carabao Cup 2016 Final and were thrashed by Tottenham last time he visited Wembley with Liverpool. PSG awaits in the Champions League in three days Liverpool needs to show team across Europe that they are capable of thrashing big team in their league so that the fear factor in Europe remains intact. PSG will face Liverpool in the opening Champions League group stage and they should know that Liverpool is very difficult to play against and Spurs could be the victim this weekend.
Transfer Today: Liverpool to complete world record move, Chelsea to lose keeper & Mourinho waits on star decision
A lot has been happening in the transfer market after the World Cup ended on 15th July. Most of the active clubs are from the Premier League as Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal & Man United all have already bought several players and are still chasing stars across Europe. Liverpool The Reds are closing in on a world record transfer for Alisson Becker as they have agreed on a deal worth £66m with AS Roma. The Brazilian who was also targeted by Chelsea decided to join his Brazil international team-mate Roberto Firmino at Anfield. Alisson is tipped as the best goalkeeper around after his impressive performances in the Champions League last season and the World Cup. Chelsea The Blues have just officialized the arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri and he did not hesitate to deny reports that Hazard is on his way out as the Italian manager confirmed that a decision is yet to be taken for the mercurial no.10. However, Thibaut Courtois is surely going to sign for Real Madrid in a €35m deal as the Belgian keeper who won the Golden Glove at this World Cup in Russia expressed his desire to leave the club. Manchester United Mourinho is still chasing his transfer target of last season as Man United go again to sign World Cup surprise star Ivan Perisic. Mourinho has been impressed with his physical presence in the opponent box during this World Cup and wants just a player who can be as good as him if not him to play in his attack next season. Gareth Bale is also in his transfer list but Real Madrid could be cautious this summer after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for £110m.
