Liverpool’s rivalry with City ‘might overtake’ United one, says Scholes – Football Article

Paul Scholes reckons Liverpool’s rivalry with Manchester United is still the biggest in the country – but interestingly suggests that if we keep competing with Manchester City for top honours – that may eclipse it. United have traditionally always been our biggest foe – even when we were dominating and they were struggling in the 1980s – but the feud between us and City is undeniably growing.

Ronaldo really wants Salah to join him at Juventus, states stupid report – Football Article

One of the more hilarious reports we’ve encountered recently has been from Sky News Arabia, who have actively spouted the nonsense that Mo Salah is a big target for Juventus.

Juventus linked with player-plus-cash bid for Mo Salah – Football Article

Juventus have been tipped to launch a move for Mohamed Salah in an effort to bolster their attacking ranks this summer. The Egyptian has become no stranger to speculation linking him to Europe’s top clubs on the back of his remarkable 44-goal debut campaign with Liverpool in 2017/2018. Fears of him leaving in the foreseeable future were partially quashed in July 2018 when the forward signed a new five-year deal at Anfield. In doing so, he made no secret of…

(Video) Alternate angle shows Naby Keita pass in all its glory – Football Article

An alternative view has captured the true genius behind Naby Keita’s pass during the build up to Mohamed Salah’s goal against Bournemouth on Saturday. The Guinean not only spotted the run in-behind from Roberto Firmino, but was able to execute a perfectly-weighted through ball into the path of the forward. This meant bypassing both Steve Cook and Nathan Ake by curling his pass without the outside of his boot, similar to the manner in which Steven Gerrard did for Daniel…

Gini Wijnaldum’s sensible analysis of Leicester game is spot on – Football Article

Gini Wijnaldum was in no mood to panic following Liverpool’s dropped points against Leicester City, simply saying while it would have been nice to make the gap to Manchester City seven points, five points isn’t a bad buffer at this stage. The Dutch midfielder was one of a few who struggled in the wintery conditions at Anfield, but a point against Claude Puel’s team is respectable. As Wijnaldum said, at this point in the season, a five-point gap is a…
