Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah appeared to troll Manchester United following the loss of the latter to Sevilla in the knockout phase of the Champions League. On Saturday an impressive United side nullified the Liverpool attack which included the high flying Salah, to win 2-1. The victory set United five points ahead of the Reds.
Salah seemed to troll United due to their recent clash. The Egyptian said the next Champions League draws couldn’t come soon enough in an obvious jibe at the Red Devils, who were defeated at home by a struggling Sevilla side.
Wissam Ben Yedder came off the bench to grab a brace within four minutes. The goals were enough to send United out of the continental competition despite a Romelu Lukaku consolation. Manchester United had played a goalless draw after ‘parking the bus’ in Spain. They were expected to come all out against Sevilla but they struggled despite needing a goal more. Sevilla gradually grew into the game and finished it off before United eventually got a goal. The 2-1 scoreline was more than enough for the La liga side to go through.
The last round of Round of 16 game is set for Wednesday where Bayern Munich will seek to wrap things up against Turkish side Besiktas and Barcelona host Chelsea. The draws for the next stage of the Champions League would then come up ahead of the quarterfinals in the first leg of next month.
Salah has been on a very good note in the league and in the Champions League. However, he was anonymous as United claimed victory on Saturday.
Ahead of Liverpool’s game against Chelsea in the Premier League this weekend, Jordan Henderson has been fingered as part of the issues with the side. Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has done very well against top sides since he became the coach. Against Chelsea, he has won twice at Stamford Bridge while playing a draw twice at home.
Chelsea would be playing a different strategy this time. After struggling sometimes this term, Antoinio Conte is making another tactical switch to spice up the team. The one he made the last time handed the Blues a Premier League title in his debut season.

Philippe Coutinho made his first appearance for Liverpool this season as a substitute in the match against Sevilla after his failed transfer move to Barcelona. Indeed at some point, it appeared that the Brazilian would not play again for Liverpool and was ready to move to Spain but unfortunately for him, things did not go as plan, and he had to remain at Anfield.
However, Jurgen Klopp believes that Phillipe Coutinho is a professional and that he will play again for Liverpool at least until the end of the season.
He said that the Brazilian forward has been working really hard in training and that he is sure that he will be playing for Liverpool again. Continue reading Jurgen Klopp on Coutinho
Spanish side Barcelona are insistent on landing Philippe Coutinho from Liverpool this summer.
The Brazilian is likely the replacement for Neymar incase his purported move to Paris St German happens. Coutinho can also be the new long term plan for the midfield as Andres Iniesta is set to retire.
The Reds have declared that the playmaker is too important to exit the club anytime soon but the Catalan side keeps pushing their luck. Liverpool have rejected one bid already but the Blaugranawant to resubmit a £90 million bid.
Coutinho agreed to a new deal in January. He has a stable spot in the team compared to his uncertain future at the Nou Camp if he moves. Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any likelihood of the player leaving but Barcelona keeps trying. Continue reading BARCA INSISTENT ON LANDING COUTINHO
Liverpool,barring any qualification round slip-up, finally madea return to Europe’s premier club tournament for the second time in eight years. Such stats do not befit a club who has won it five times.
Only Real Madrid and AC Milan have more European titles.
Rafa Benitez’s exit and the subsequent clearing out of XabiAlonso,Javier Macherano and Fernando Torres haveleft the once towering giant of a club in the dust of their rivals’ victory screeches. Between changing of coaches and buying of new players The Koppites have seen their efforts fall by the wayside time and again even when they made a legitimate run at the EPL title during the 2013/14 season. That dream of course died thanks in no part to Steven Gerard’s now infamous slip against Chelsea.
Former Borussia Dortmund coach Jurgen Klopp’s first full season has however bundled them back to base camp of the UCL as they look to get their priorities right and ensure this current one step forward won’t be met with a Brendan Rodgers-like two steps backward.
