  1. Liverpool FC: Fields of Anfield Road

    In an interview with BBC Sport, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has expressed his desire to better Sir Alex Ferguson's 13 Premier League titles.

    Sir Alex Ferguson is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time having led the red half of Manchester through their most successful period. During the Scot's reign at Old Trafford, they won: 13 Premier League titles, 5 FA Cups, 4 EFL Cups, 10 Community Shields, 2 Champions Leagues, 1 Cup winners cup, 1 Super cup, 1 Intercontinental cup and 1 FIFA Club World Cup.

    Klopp spoke highly of Sir Alex whilst talking to BBC Sport's Phil McNulty.

    "Sir Alex is by far the greatest manager that the Premier League, if not the world, has ever seen. I know that the Liverpool fans will not be happy with me saying this but the facts do not lie. To win that amount of trophies in that amount of time is an extremely impressive feat."

    "I want to bring that type of success to Liverpool. I'm often reminded of Liverpool's glory days when I'm at Anfield and I want to bring that back to the club. We have a squad that is capable of great success and there is no reason why we can't win trophies this season."

  2. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has rejected a bid from Man City for Jordan Henderson this morning and insists that the Liverpool skipper is not for sale.

    Manchester City had made a twenty two million pound bid that Klopp instantly rejected with a firm "He's not for sale".

    Jurgen Klopp said:

    "Manchester City made a bid for Jordan (Henderson) this morning and we've rejected that. Henderson is not for sale and we feel that it would be stupid for us to sell a player of Jordan's talent and squad importance. Jordan is our captain for a reason and is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League."

    Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson also spoke to the Sky Sports:

    "I don't want to leave the club and I'm happy that the bid was rejected. I've enjoyed my time here so far and hope to be here for as long as possible. It's a great club with great fans and playing at Anfield is probably my favourite thing in life, nothing can beat the atmosphere when playing for Liverpool at Anfield. I hope that I can kick on this season and play even more first team games and enjoy the atmosphere even more."

  3. For some reason I'm getting this whilst trying to post my update regarding a new signing? It only has one link?

  4. I'll post it as a screengrab instead

  5. Derby County midfielder Will Hughes has today been linked with a £10 million move to Premier League giants Liverpool

    Reports suggest that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has made an enquiry as to the availability of Derby midfielder Will Hughes, with the Reds preparing a bid of around £15million for the midfielder. It has been confirmed that the Liverpool boss is very keen to replace the want away midfielder Lucas with Will Hughes citing concerns on squad depth.

    Derby released a club statement saying: "Derby County Football Club can confirm that Liverpool have made a formal approach as to the availability of Will Hughes, we have sent them a preliminary asking price and are open to negotiations."

    No other comment has since been made from either club and with Will Hughes likely to play a big role for Derby this season, it is unknown whether a bid has been made or whether a bid has been accepted.

  6. Nice layout, will be following mate

  7. Derby's preseason plans have been thrown into turmoil as midfielder Will Hughes has stated his desire to leave following interest from Premier League side Liverpool.

    Speaking exclusively with BBC Sport, Hughes had this to say:

    "Yes I do want to leave Derby. As much as I love Derby as a club and a place, when a team like Liverpool comes in for you, there is absolutely no way you can say no to that. The club is one of the biggest in the world and has some of the most passionate fans around. I've played at Anfield before and the noise the crowd generates is nothing short of fantastic. It is really intimidating when you are on the opposition."

    "No offence to Steve Mclaren as he is a great man and a great manager but I want to work with Jurgen Klopp. I really feel I could benefit from his footballing knowledge and become a better player as a result. Also the competition for places means I have to improve as a player and if I want to break into the England team and play every game, that's what I need to do."

  8. Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva has confirmed that he has handed in a transfer request, declaring himself unhappy with the amount of competition for places at Anfield.

    In a pre-prepared statement, Lucas said:

    "I have handed in a transfer request, whether it is accepted or not I will not be here for the Premier League kick off this season. I have enjoyed my time here since the first day but I don't think I can do it any longer. I have given my all every game but now there are too many players in my position. I need to be playing first team football and I don't think that will happen here".

    "My reasons for leaving are to further my own career. I want to be playing football week in and week out, not sitting on the bench in the middle of November."

    "I'd like to thank the Liverpool fans. They've been very supportive since I began in the first team and it's because of them I've been here so long and never wanted to leave. I've had a fantastic time here, fantastic moments and I'm saddened that it's coming to an end."

  9. Premier League Liverpool have finally got their man, as central midfielder Will Hughes joins from Championship side Derby.

    Liverpool have been chasing the young midfielder for a while and rumours had been rife that a Hughes bid had been accepted by Derby. Today both clubs have confirmed that the midfielder has joined Liverpool for a fee of £13.5 million on what is believed to be a four year contract. The 21-year-old midfielder played 127 times for Derby and managed to score 7 goals.

    BBC Sport managed to catch up with both Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Will Hughes as they left Liverpool's Melwood training ground.

    Hughes said: "I am delighted to have finally signed for Liverpool. As I've said before Liverpool are a great club with great fans and I am really excited to get started. I know I will have to fight for my place here but I think that will make me a better footballer. Hopefully we can win everything there is to win this season."

    Jurgen Klopp added: "I am very happy that Will has decided to join us and I'd like to welcome him to the club. Will is a terrific player and should definitely push for a starting place in the side if he works hard in training."

  10. Liverpool have today confirmed that midfielder Lucas Leiva has completed a move to French side Monaco on what is believed to be a 3 year deal.

    A statement on the official Liverpool website said: "Everyone at Liverpool would like to thank Lucas Leiva for his services and wish him the very best of luck for the future with both his new club and with the Brazilian national team". No fee was mentioned in the statement but it is believed that Monaco have paid 17.5 million pounds for the Brazillian.

    Lucas Leiva had joined Liverpool from Gremio for a fee of 6 million just prior to the 2007-08 season. To start with the Brazilian found the Premier League hard going but the more he played, the more he adapted to the English game and he eventually became a fan favorite.

    Lucas played a total of 27 times for Liverpool last season but with the recent acquisitions of Marko Grujic and Georginio Wijnaldum, the Brazilian felt the time had come to leave and subsequently handed in a transfer request. In all Lucas Leiva played 223 games in the red shirt, scoring 1 goal.

  11. It's bad news for Liverpool today with the news that Roberto Firmino and Simon Mignolet will both miss the season opener against Manchester United.

    The pair both picked up injuries during a training session at Melwood, Mignolet whilst completing a routine running drill with his teammates and Firmino during a practice match. Simon Mignolet's injury has been confirmed as a pulled hamstring and Roberto Firmino's is a broken arm. Both are likely to be out for up to a month, thereby missing the trip to Manchester United.

    Reds boss Jurgen Klopp was disappointed with the news but insisted that the team could cope.

    "Obviously it is a big blow to lose the likes of Roberto and Simon, even if just for a month or a couple of weeks. However, we have very good squad depth and should be able to cope with their absences. We have a number of potential replacements for Roberto including the likes of Adam Lallana and James Milner."

    "To replace Simon, we have two excellent keepers in Karius and Donnarumma so I don't think we will have any problems."

  12. Liverpool have today announced that they have signed German defender Mattias Ginter for a fee of around the 32 million pound mark.

    After successfully passing a medical, Ginter was unveiled by manager Jurgen Klopp in a press conference at Anfield, completing his £32 million switch from Dortmund.

    The 22-year-old admitted that he had his sights set on Anfield as soon as he heard of Liverpool's interest. Delighted with the move, he described Liverpool as one of the best clubs in the world in his speech to a packed press conference at Anfield.

    "I'm absolutely delighted to become a Liverpool player, it is one of the best clubs in the world," he said. "I'm delighted to be able to play under Jurgen Klopp again who I can hopefully learn a lot from and better my game. When you play for a big team there's pressure on your back, I have pressure, It's not a problem, I'm still confident. I think I'm at the right club to keep progressing in my career. I'm very focused to do a good job and to show the Liverpool fans that I'm a good player."

  13. Good luck with Liverpool, do us proud! Use to love writing stories this way, takes time but they're smart and worth it!

    Thanks Appreciate the kind words. It's a long writing process but the end result is definitely worth it

  15. Liverpool have completed the signing of PSV Eindhoven defender Jetro Willems for a fee believed to be in the region of £17.75 million after the 22 year old passed a medical at Anfield.

    PSV Eindhoven manager Phillip Cocu has wished defender Jetro Willems all the best after he signed a four year contract with the red half of Merseyside in a deal worth a reported £17.75 million. It's believed the 22 year old had asked for the move after being made aware of Liverpool's bid for his services.

    The Dutch international had three years remaining on his contract with PSV Eindhoven.

    Willems will find himself battling with Alberto Moreno for a place in the first team, the Spaniard currently being regarded as Liverpool's first choice left back. Liverpool also have James Milner and youngster Kevin Stewart who are capable at playing in the left back position.

  16. The full draw is as follows:

  17. Jurgen Klopp has spoken of his excitement ahead of his Liverpool sides season opener against Manchester United at Old Trafford.

    Speaking to BBC Sport, Klopp said:

    "Obviously if we had the choice of games at the start of the season, this would probably be pretty far down the list. Man United are one of the strongest teams this season after making such high profile signings. Zlatan and Pogba will bring a lot to their side and it will be up to us to make sure we stop their threat. We know what to expect come Saturday afternoon"

    Despite preferring to not start away at Man United, Klopp still believes his side can win at Old Trafford.

    "With that being said, I'd back us to beat anybody and playing Manchester United at Old Trafford only adds to the excitement of the beginning of the season. I'm excited, the players are excited and there is noone at the club that doesn't believe that we can be successful this season on all fronts. If we are going to be successful, we need to win these games and that's what we are setting out to do."

  19. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was satisfied after seeing his side pick up a point away at Manchester United

    Manchester United took the lead with 18 minutes to go, Zlatan Ibrahimovic scoring on his Manchester United debut after heading home a Juan Mata corner. The game changed with 10 minutes left as Paul Pogba was sent off for a second bookable offence. Two minutes later, Liverpool earned themselves a point with sub Divock Origi smashing home an Adam Lallana through ball.

    Liverpool boss Klopp was positive after watching the draw.

    "I'm happy that we managed to get a point today. We knew going into the game that it would be difficult and I thought that the players were magnificent. Obviously we are a little disappointed to not go on to win the game but it isn't often that Man United don't win after going ahead."

    The German also praised the impact of sub Divock Origi.

    "Origi made a very good impact off the bench, that's what he's good at, scoring goals when we need them the most," Klopp added.

    Liverpool's next game is at home against newly promoted Middlesbrough, the game being the first at Anfield since the completion of the recent work on the main stand.

  23. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted of squad rotation ahead of his sides EFL Cup tie away at League Two Exeter.

    Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has named the same starting eleven in both matches so far this season, but has today hinted at rotation when his side face Exeter in the EFL Cup 2nd round.

    "I think it's going to be important that some players are given opportunities in cup games such as this one and hat we don't give players too many games too soon." Klopp told Sky Sports News.

    "It's a long season and we need to make sure that players do not burn out too quickly. We have played well in our two games so far this season but this match is ideal to give the players who have not already had a chance to play, a chance to play. We didn't sign the likes of Ragnor Klavan to sit on the bench so this game will give him a chance to show us what he can do."

    Liverpool thrashed Middlesbrough in the Premier League last time out, and despite this result, the Reds boss has insisted that he will not be underestimating League Two Exeter.

    "It would be easy for us to go into this match with the belief that it's done and dusted," added the Liverpool boss.

    "But that's not what we're planning to do, we know that there's still a job to do, and the players selected will want to be staking their own claims for earning starts against Swansea at the weekend. Exeter will be up for this game, they'll have a bumper crowd down there and it's up to us to remain professional and get the win."

  24. Sadio Mane scored his first Liverpool goal as the reds eased into the EFL Cup 3rd round at the expense of League Two Exeter City.

    Exeter: Olejnik, Sweeney, Archibald-Henville, Moore-Taylor, Georgiou, James, Stacey (Grant 65), Taylor, Cooke (Wheeler 59), Holmes, McAlinden (Reid 56).

  29. Attacking midfielder Roberto Firmino has revealed his delight at finally being able to make a full return from the broken arm he picked up in pre-season.

    Firmino picked up the injury during pre season and has only been able to play 1 game so far this season, the EFL Cup tie away at Exeter City. The Brazilian has now been given the all clear and is avaliable for Liverpool's next match which is a home game against Tottenham at Anfield.

    "It's great to be back in contention," Firmino told

    "When I went landed during the match, I knew that my arm was broken and I'd miss the start of the season. It was really difficult to cope with after waiting so long for the season to start. When I got injured all I wanted to do is get back playing again and do what I love doing the best."

    "I have to say a big thank you to the medical staff," added Firmino.

    "The medical staff were fantastic. I wanted to rush straight back in once my arm felt ok but they made sure that I didn't come back too soon. In hindsight, I wasn't ready to return and I thank them for making me see sense. Now that I am fully fit, I'm raring to get started and I can't wait till the game against Tottenham next Saturday."

  30. Roberto Firmino and Phillipe Coutinho both scored twice as Liverpool beat Tottenham by four goals to nil at Anfield.

  34. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was pleased after watching his side ease to a 4-0 win over Tottenham at Anfield.

    The home side raced into an early lead with Roberto Firmino marking his first Premier League start of the season with a goal in the 4th minute. Coutinho doubled the lead a minute later and added a 3rd with just 20 minutes gone. By the time Firmino scored Liverpool's 4th, the game was well and truly out of Tottenham's reach.

    Speaking after the match, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his delight at his teams performance.

    "It was a great team performance out there today," Klopp told Sky Sports.

    "We went into the game expecting a difficult test against a very good Tottenham side and we outclassed them. I think getting the two goals very early took all the fight out of Tottenham and they didn't offer anything at all all game. Jordan Henderson ran the show in the centre of the pitch and he made Tottenham look very average."

    The Liverpool boss also praised the performance of midfielder Phillipe Coutinho, who netted a brace at Anfield.

    "Well what can be said that already hasn't about Phillipe," added the German.

    "He was simply sensational out there today and it is a wonder as to how he didn't get a hat trick. The fans love him and he loves the fans and it is that relationship that allows him to perform so well. He's like a little magician when he gets on the ball and there aren't many players better than him."

  35. Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is wary of the threat posed by Liverpool ahead of their meeting at the Emirates Stadium.

    Arsenal come into the game on the back of a 3-1 loss to Spanish giants Barcelona in the Champions League, meanwhile, Liverpool are fresh off an impressive 4-0 win over Arsenal's local rivals Tottenham. Liverpool are so far unbeaten in the Premier League with their draw with Manchester United on the opening day being their only dropped points.

    Speaking ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League meeting with Liverpool at the Emirates, Arsene Wenger spoke of the challenge that awaited his side.

    "We know exactly what Liverpool are capable of, and it's going to be important that we are completely focused on what is required of us," Wenger told Sky Sports.

    "Liverpool will come here and press us high up the pitch and we will need to make sure that we do not panic and give the ball away. If we play our natural game and pass the ball about the pitch then Liverpool will tire towards the end of the match, patience will be key for us in this match. Liverpool are in good form but there is no reason why we can't beat them on Saturday."

  36. The points were shared at the Emirates Stadium with Arsenal and Liverpool battling to a 2-2 draw, thanks to a late Adam Lallana goal.

    Arsenal: Cech, Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal, Cazorla, Xhaka (Coquelin 58), Oxlade-Chamberlain (Ramsey 45), Ozil, Sanchez, Giroud (Lucas 56).
    Subs Not Used: Ospina, Mertesacker, Paulista, Walcott.

  37. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed his disappointment in his teams second half performance, the visitors drawing 2-2 with Arsenal having led 1-0 at half time.

    The game started in the best possible manner for Liverpool with Georginio Wijnaldum opening the scoring in the 18th minute. Liverpool then dominated the rest of the half. After the break, Arsenal looked a different side and goals from Lucas and Sanchez turned the game on its head before Adam Lallana found an equaliser for Liverpool with 13 minutes left.

    "We were awful in the second half, that's the honest truth." Klopp told BBC Sport.

    "In the second half we were second in every aspect of the game, Arsenal outfought and outplayed us. I'm not sure what happened to the lads but they appeared to just think that the game was won. At 1-0, we were not comfortable and it wasn't a surprise to see Arsenal turn the game around with two quick goals. I was really disappointed that we allowed them to do that."

    Despite criticising his sides second half performance, Klopp also praised his side for finding a way back into the game.

    "We offered nothing all half so to get the equalising goal was really good to see. Adam has a knack at getting into the right positions and it was a great finish by him. I can't say that we deserved it but I am just happy that we managed to somehow steal a point. We'll pick ourselves up and go again in midweek against Man United."

  38. Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has set his sights on humiliating Liverpool following reports that Jurgen Klopp is to name a weakened side for their EFL Cup clash.

    The two sides have already met once this season with Divock Origi cancelling out a Zlatan Ibrahimovic goal, this coming two minutes after Paul Pogba saw red for the Manchester side.

    In a pre-match interview ahead of their EFL Cup 3rd round tie, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho had plenty to say.

    "To name a weakened side against a side of our class is bordering on suicidal and is stupid. I just hope that Jurgen is ready for the backlash when we humiliate them on their own turf. They got lucky when they played us in the Premier League and got Paul Pogba sent off to help them steal a point. That won't happen this time around, we'll win it comfortably."

    With the Manchester United manager fuelling the fire ahead of their EFL Cup 3rd round clash, Sky Sports approached Liverpool for a response to Jose Mourinho's claims but the club denied to comment.

  39. Liverpool are through to the 4th round of the EFL Cup after a second string side knocked out Manchester United.

  40. Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp spoke of his delight after watching a second string side knock Man United out of the EFL cup.

    Liverpool made 8 changes to the side that drew away at Arsenal on Saturday with youngster Ben Woodburn handed a start. Also coming into the team were Mignolet, Klavan, Matip, Wilems, Grujic, Hughes and Mane with Ginter, Henderson and Firmino being the only survivors from the Red's 2-2 draw with Arsenal.

    "Well what can I say, that will certainly shut Mourinho up." said Klopp after the 1-0 win.

    "When I heard his comments, I was disappointed about how unprofessional he was being and I used his words to motivate the lads in this match. We were the better team all over the pitch and should have won by more than one goal in my opinion. It's fair to say that the only team going away humiliated is Manchester United."

    Klopp also had some advice for Jose Mourinho after Paul Pogba was sent off for a second time this season against Liverpool.

    "If I were Jose, I would worry less about what the opposition team is doing and focus on the discipline of my players. That was the second time Paul Pogba has been sent off against us this season and it's a lot hard to win games with only ten men on the pitch."

  41. Still enjoying this, good win over United!

  44. Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has spoken of his delight after scoring a hat trick in Liverpool's 5-1 win over Southampton at Anfield.

    The former Southamton man put his former employers to the sword, scoring a hat trick, as Liverpool romped to a 5-1 win over the Saints at Anfield, Wijnaldum and Firmino scoring the other two Liverpool goals. Lallana spoke to Sky Sports after picking up the man of the match award for his performance against his former club.

    "I'm absolutely over the man," said the England international.

    "The Southampton fans have made no attempt to hide their hatred of me after my move to Liverpool so I'm buzzing to score a hat trick against their team. Some of the abuse I've received since moving here has been awful and has come as quite a shock as I got on with everyone down there. What's in the past is in the past though and right now I'm enjoying my football."

    "The fans here at Liverpool are something else. I still get goosebumps every time I hear them sing You'll Never Walk Alone. There's no doubt that Anfield has the best atmosphere that I've ever experienced on a football pitch and I'm really lucky that I get to play for such an illustrious club under a manager of the calibre of Jurgen Klopp."

  45. Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed that the Reds have accepted a bid from Bayern Munich for centre back Mamadou Sakho.

    "Mamadou is free to leave the club in the transfer window, and we have accepted a bid from Bayern Munich," Klopp told

    "Mamadou is a great player but the fact is that we have better defenders at the club at the moment. He is behind 4 players in the queue for a centre back position so it wouldn't be fair on him to keep him here against his will. We want players here who want to play for the team and are happy waiting for their opportunity."

    "At the moment the team has been playing extremely well, putting in excellent performances and it would be unjustified to just bring a player in who's been out with an injury."
