Expert claims Liverpool profit from major injustice as controversial James Milner footage emerges

Conor Coady’s goal in Everton’s 0-0 with Liverpool on Saturday should not have been ruled out for offside, according to Keith Hackett.

The Ex-Fifa and Premier League referee claimed football is “penalising” itself with the current interpretation of the offside law according to Football Insider.

Everton’s new boy Coady thought he had put Everton in front at Goodison Park after tapping in a Neal Maupay cross from close range.

Despite his affiliation with the Reds, the 29-year-old celebrated passionately what he thought was his first goal for his new club.

However, VAR operator Darren England informed referee Anthony Taylor that he was offside when Maupay played the ball across the face of the goal and it was disallowed.

On closer inspection, it appears James Milner may have got a touch on the ball when attempting to stop the cross and therefore Coady was not offside.

I think this goal should have stood,” Hackett said after analysing the footage with Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.

“I think there is a deliberate play here that keeps that player onside.

“It was a goal that should not have been ruled out.

“I think the game is penalising itself with the current integration of the offside law.”

Everton are yet to record their first win of the Premier League season despite keeping their first clean sheet of the campaign against Liverpool.

Frank Lampard’s side are next in action on Sunday when they travel to Emirate stadium to tackle League leaders Arsenal.

“That is on them”-Jamie Carragher gives honest opinion on Jurgen Klopp Liverpool exit fears

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has come under intense pressure, following a run of poor form in the Premier League this season.

Former Liverpool player, Jamie Carragher stated that despite the Reds’ recent troubles, Reds fans will still want Jurgen Klopp in charge at the start of next season.

The Merseyside team suffered a humiliating loss to Wolves on Saturday, keeping them in the mid-table. Ruben Neves’ goal in the second half sealed Wolves’ biggest victory of the year after two goals in the first 15 minutes gave Julen Lopetegui’s squad the lead.

It was the third time in a row that Liverpool have lost away from home in the league, while they have still yet to win a game in the competition in 2023. Carragher, however, did not call for the manager to go.

“There’s a lot of questions that need to be asked and a lot of answers to be found, but at the start of next season, I don’t think there’s anyone Liverpool supporters would want in that dugout other than Jurgen Klopp,” Sky Sports pundit Carragher said.

Liverpool’s only victory in 2023 came in a previous game against Wolves in their FA Cup third-round replay, but Brighton eliminated Klopp’s team in the very next round of the competition.

Carragher criticised Liverpool’s transfer strategy as well. Darwin Nunez and Cody Gakpo, who arrived at substantial expense, were two attacking reinforcements added by Klopp, but Arthur, on loan from Juventus, was the only central midfielder that was added.

There was money there for a midfield player, they tried to buy the lad who went to Real Madrid for £60-£70 million [Aurelien Tchouameni],” the former England defender said. “They couldn’t get him and Jürgen Klopp and his staff or the recruitment team decided that we don’t need to buy a midfielder.

“That is on them. They’ve got to the start of this season, and from day one at Fulham, they haven’t been able to cope with the intensity of a Premier League game of football and they’ve been ran over in every game that they’ve played.”

Liverpool now sits 11 points outside the top four, with fourth-place Newcastle earning a point on Saturday, and 10 behind fifth-placed Tottenham. Their next two games are against Everton and Newcastle, followed by a return to Champions League action against Real Madrid on February 21.

Liverpool star player reveals he is  “completely frustrated”, and Klopp can’t lose him.

Following the shocking defeat to Wolves on Saturday, Liverpool goalkeeper Allison has admitted that he is “completely frustrated”

The Reds’ season doesn’t seem to be improving, and their 3-0 loss to relegation-threatened Wolves is evidence of how awful they have been this year.

The players appear equally as willing to struggle as the manager, Jurgen Klopp, who keeps emphasising his ability to turn things around.

When asked about the current problems at Anfield and whether the team are committed to rectifying the clubs’ issues, as reported by the Liverpool Echo, goalkeeper Allison said: “Yeah, we are. Definitely”

The defeat leaves Liverpool 11 points adrift of fourth placed Newcastle United and if they are to have any hopes of qualifying for the Champions League next season they need to start winning games.

Liverpool are still in the current competition and could advance by winning that, but they will face a formidable opponent in the holders Real Madrid in the round of 16.

Brazilian goalkeeper Allison didn’t hide the fact that he and his teammates were frustrated by Liverpool’s recent performances and highlighted the need for consistency.

He said: “I think it happened the same as we have done in the other games. We are not having consistency at all – I mean consistency [of] playing 90 minutes really focused and doing everything that we have to do on the pitch.

“In the first 15 minutes, we started the game not in a good way and we get punished for that, conceding two goals.

“We are not in the situation where we are confident, that confident to come back, but we tried. We did a good second half and then we concede again: you don’t score and you concede again, so it’s completely frustrating from my side.”

A place in Europe’s top competition will be crucial for retaining stars like Allison as well as for luring new players for the upcoming season.

The 30-year-old is one of Liverpool’s most crucial players and has been instrumental in their victories under Klopp; they would hate to have to find a replacement.

Liverpool handed major injury boost ahead of the Champion League, it could change their season

Liverpool have been handed a major injury boost after manager Jurgen Klopp provided a positive update on forward Diogo Jota’s return to fitness.

Ahead of their game on Saturday against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Klopp was hopeful of Jota’s return

The calf injury the Portuguese international sustained in the Reds’ 1-0 loss to Manchester City at Anfield has kept him out of action since October.

Since then, Liverpool’s problems have persisted, so if they want to turn things around this season, crucial players may return.

In his pre-match press conference, Klopp said: “The boys are training, Diogo Jota had a full session with the team this week but then the next day had again a rehab session, not because of the session the day before, it was just part of the plan. I think he will be back in normal training next week.”

This season, Liverpool’s performance has drastically declined. The Reds have been competing with City at the top of the table for the last few years, but they are currently in 10th place.

It was expected that a drop down would occur due to significant summertime absences and their inability to match the big spenders close.

Injuries haven’t helped, but Jota’s imminent comeback and Virgil van Dijk’s improved recuperation could put a stop to Klopp’s woes.

However, the Dutchman won’t be able to play against Wolves, so the Reds will have to make do with a center-back pairing of Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, with Ibrahima Konate also out.

Liverpool and Brazil defensive midfielder, Fabinho is struggling for form at the moment, according to Klopp.

The £180,000-a-week (SalarySport) 29-year-old has to fight his way back into the team, the Liverpool manager stated.

Klopp said about Fabinho: “We don’t have arguments on the training ground or anything. If you think that, that is not the case at all.

“He knows he’s not flying and he has to work his way back. That’s how it is. It’s now really helpful we have Stefan [Bajcetic] because he’s doing really well.

“In this position, you need a guy who wins challenges, who protects everybody, but who plays football as well. It’s really important and for plenty of years, [Fabinho has been] the best in that position for a long time.

The former Monaco midfielder is having a disappointing season, but let us not forget that the former AS Monaco star is only 29 now.

Now, of course, Klopp has to drop the Brazilian for the benefit of the team, but if the defensive midfielder works hard in training and then gets his chance, then he has to make the most of it.

Fabinho has made 14 starts and four substitute appearances in the Premier League for Liverpool so far this season.

The Brazilian has made five starts and one substitute appearance in the UEFA Champions League for the Merseyside club so far this campaign.

“I don’t understand”-Darwin sends warning message to Klopp amid poor performing at Liverpool after move from Benfica

“I don’t understand”-Darwin sends warning message to Klopp amid poor performing at Liverpool after move from Benfica

Liverpool star Darwin Nunez has opened up on the language barrier causing him difficulties understanding Jurgen Klopp. But he appreciates the Anfield boss’ efforts since his transfer.

The Reds paid Benfica an initial £64m, plus £21m in potential add-ons, to secure a transfer for Nunez in June. Liverpool also handed the 23-year-old a £140k-a-week contract through to June 2028. Yet he has endured a mixed debut campaign since his arrival on Merseyside.

Nunez has cut an inconsistent profile at the top of Klopp’s frontline this season, contributing to 10 goals and three assists. He has appeared in 25 of Liverpool’s games thus far this season in all competitions. However, the striker also had to sit out three games as a result of a red card in August.

Nunez received a straight red card from referee Paul Tierney against Crystal Palace in his debut Premier League start. Early in the second half, the 16-cap Uruguay forward headbutted Joachim Andersen. After that, he would be absent from the Reds’ 2-1 loss against Manchester United.

Nunez has only provided Liverpool with four goals and an assist in his last 12 Premier League appearances. Also, since the World Cup, he has played in just four Premier League games without contributing to a goal. While he scored on two of his hits against Southampton’s bottom feeders.

Nunez, however, has nearly always been a key component of Klopp’s attacking plans when he has played for Liverpool. The striker from Artigas frequently finds himself in scoring position. But it has turned out to be far more difficult to get the ball across the goal line and into the net.

One of the issues possibly holding Nunez back with Liverpool is the language barrier, which he admits causes problems with Klopp. The Uruguay star and German boss do not speak the same language at present. But Nunez wants to be able to understand everything soon.

My teammates who speak Spanish are always translating because I still don’t understand a lot of things,” Nunez told Sky Sports. “But watch out because I am taking English classes. I hope that in a year and a half, minimum, I will be able to understand everything.

“[Klopp] doesn’t speak Spanish and I don’t speak English, so we don’t understand each other. But ever since I arrived at Liverpool, he has always given me confidence.”
