How Jurgen Klopp addressed his Liverpool players for the first time

How Jurgen Klopp addressed his Liverpool players for the first time

"If somebody would have told me after eight match days you have 20 points, I would say with that fixture list, "I'll buy it, let's start with the ninth match day"," said Klopp.

Arsenal, though, are two points behind the leading pack after Unai Emery's side eased to a resounding 5-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage in Sunday's early kick-off.

Despite reaching the finals of the League Cup, Europa League and, most recently, the Champions League, Klopp has yet to lift his first piece of silverware as Liverpool manager.

Liverpool have been touted as Manchester City's closest challengers for the Premier League this season and are now level with Pep Guardiola's side and Chelsea on 18 points after eight matches, having yet to be defeated in the league.

"The boys unfortunately go away again now and have to play Nations League games, the most senseless competition in the world of football". I want to win it, and I know that's a responsibility.

Lucescu's Turkey played out a 0-0 draw against Bosnia yesterday and will take on Russian Federation on Sunday. Guardiola apologised to Jesus afterwards and the 21-year-old Brazil worldwide insisted he felt confident to take the penalty. "It is a challenge for us to go out there and produce the goods as Gazza did when he was a player".

But after three near-misses, the last in May's Champions League defeat to Real Madrid, he admits he does not know when that claim will come to fruition.

However, Guardiola admitted his plan for a slower tempo to stop Liverpool springing onto the counter-attack had worked.

Turkish prosecutor seeks 10-year jail term for U.S. pastor
He is one of thousands caught up in a Turkish government crackdown following a failed 2016 coup against the Turkish government. He was transferred to house arrest in July because of poor health, but US officials had expected him to be freed at that time.

A Liverpudlian, who joined Everton as a schoolboy, Barkley's departure from Goodison Park, as he ran his contract down, was a drawn out and painful affair, but one he has put behind him.

"Without Hazard they don't have as much threat".

"It should work, actually, at one point".

"We were close more than ever to win here".

He has lost his past six finals since winning his first with Borussia Dortmund in 2012.

"I remember I wrote in big letters on a paper the word "TEAM" and I said that is what I want us to be", the boss explained.

"We know without them we wouldn't play on our highest level, no chance".

After starting the season with seven straight victories, Liverpool have now failed to win any of their past four matches.
