One of those arrests came after the peel of a banana was thrown onto the field from the away end as Gabonese striker Aubameyang celebrated scoring an early penalty in front of the Tottenham fans.

Jurgen Klopp wants the goalkeepers of Liverpool to take advantage of the inclusion of Jack Robinson as his backroom member.

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.

While the whole football world has been harping Nemanja Vidic with harsh criticisms about his underperformance at Inter Milan, the former Man U captain seems to have the blessings of his coach. Inter Milan coach Mazzarri (Walter) has actively protested against the criticisms, extending his defense for the unfortunate player.
Vidic is definitely no less than some legend is his old club Man U but his stints at Inter Milan so far is somewhat akin to a bad nightmare.
Nemanja Vidic is nothing short of a Manchester United legend, but his tenure thus far at Inter would be best described as something of a nightmare.
The ex Man u captain made a serious wrong on coming back from his suspension as his new club settled for tie with Palermo, while poor performances against Fiorentina and Inter saw Nerazzurri routed.
Vidic’s performance this weekend just furthered the doubts regarding his suitability in continuing at top level. His errant clear-up lane on permitted Callejon (Jose) to net on field for Partenopei, which caused Inter to battle back for points in last 10 minutes. However, Inter Milan chief has absolved Nemanji of any sort of wrongdoing in Napoli encounter, stressing that he is the one to be blamed for unfortunate results.
“Nemanji is a footballer & I am the coach”, explained the Inter chief clarifying Vidic’s stance amidst harsh criticisms. “Coach is the one who is actually responsible for anything that is happening on field, no matter what was the defence. Some are blaming him for Jose’s goal but I would say that was headed inception & he had this misfortune of unfavourable rebound”, he continued.
“The error that was committed are by those players who left that attacker free. Vidic is not faulty here as he was right there where he’s supposed to be.”
The cash injection that Brendan Rodgers received after selling Luis Suarez has allowed him to reinforce just about every area of the squad as Liverpool has signed new defenders, midfielders and forwards.
Fabio Borini and Rickie Lambert are the new forwards that Rodgers has so far signed during this summer transfer window with both of those attacking players expected to fill in the gap left by the Uruguayan Luis Suarez and play alongside the duo which consists of Raheem Sterling and Daniel Sturridge as the main scoring outlet of Liverpool for the years to come.
Even with all of those offensive players at the disposal of Brendan Rodgers, rumors still continue being transmitted involving Ac.Milan’s Mario Balotelli and a possible transfer to Liverpool.
There are a few concerning elements that surrounds Balotelli as the Italian attacker has experienced problems with just about every manager he has worked with throughout his entire career. Balotelli has dramatically improved as a player compared to some years ago but he still continues being a short tempered performer that could cause issues in the dressing room of Liverpool and this is not something that Brendan Rodgers would like to have in his squad.
Radamel Falcao is another high profile player who has lured the attention of Rodgers but this would be an even more difficult target to sign taking into consideration that the Colombian has already voiced his desire to play in the Santiago Bernabeu as a performer of Real Madrid as he does not have any intention of making a move to the Premier League anytime soon but if Liverpool is willing to offload a substantially high amount of money for Falcao then they could tempt As.Monaco on releasing the Colombian attacker.
Liverpool’s almost incredible transformation into one of the contenders for the title, all within a time span of less than a year can totally be contributed to the excellent training and coaching under Brendan Rodgers.
As a sign of its continuous progress, Liverpool’s accounts were made public in the middle of tremendous apathy around a week ago. If it was a few years back, releasing the financial figures of any company was a very tricky business and almost needed a countdown from NASA while the figures were released.
Liverpool hasn’t taken on a competitive one on one since the glorious victory of 3-0 in Barclays Premier League over Southampton early this month. A perfect mix of a middle of the week international fixtures round and further postponement of a match versus Sunderland has given Rodgers the exceptional opportunity of fifteen whole days to fine tune the game between matches.
No sign of any kind of let up has been seen during the training session under Rodgers, who further stressed on the tireless work that is being put in by the 2nd positioned team of the division. He reported to a popular television channel saying that it was quite interesting since the team got an adaptation day, post they were off the field for some time.
This season is going to be quite a low intensity one but the team worked with super high intensity during the training period, so much so that he actually had to take the team off training for a bit. They team is highly focused right now and is very ambitious about taking the club to new level of success. This he sees in their work each and every day and they are a team of brilliant professionals.
