Another Champions League season is upon us, with some interesting groups being drawn. But which teams will advance to the knockout stages from their respective groups and which teams will finish third and go on to play in the knockout stages of the Europa League? Here are my predictions…
Group A
Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Monaco & Club Brugge
Europa League winners Atletico have had a rather awkward start to their domestic league season, but will still qualify from this group. They have added some good new signings to bolster their midfield …

Former Brazil and Barcelona star Ronaldinho has predicted that Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah will once again win the Premier League’s Golden boot award this season.
The Egypt international won the award last season as he went on to score 32 goals in the top-flight from 36 games. After Salah arrived at Anfield from Roma last summer, he had many skeptics due to the fact that he had previously had a failed spell with Chelsea in England. In all competitions, he scored 44 goals and also helped the Reds reach the final …

Liverpool enjoyed a 4-0 win over West Ham United in Sunday’s clash at Anfield, with goals from Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Daniel Sturridge. The victory put Jurgen Klopp’s men top of the Premier League after gameweek one, ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Manchester City on goal difference, and many are expecting them to stay in the top-two for the rest of the campaign.
Manchester City are favourites with the bookmakers to win the Premier League title, with Liverpool expected to be the nearest challengers. The Merseysiders are being …

Liverpool have completed a £66m deal to sign AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson, their fourth signing of the summer – Naby Keita (£54m from RB Leipzig), Fabinho (£40m from AS Monaco), Xherdan Shaqiri (£13m from Stoke City). The Brazilian shot-stopper is the most expensive goalkeeper in world football but only the second-biggest signing made in 2018 after Virgil van Dijk joined from Southampton for £75m.
After previously targeting the best players of mid-level clubs to keep their spending at a reasonable level – Sadio Mane (£35m from Southampton), Georginio Wijnaldum (£25m from …

Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah could miss the 2018 World Cup in Russia after dislocating his shoulder in the Champions League final. The Reds lost 3-1 to Real Madrid in Saturday night’s final in Kyiv, but Salah could face further heartache as he may not recover fast enough to feature for Egypt.
He picked up the injury after being hauled to the ground by Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos, locking arms with the Spanish international and subsequently dislocating on impact when he fit the floor. He was forced off after just 30 …

Real Madrid sealed their third consecutive Champions League crown and their fourth in five years after beating Liverpool 3-1 in Saturday’s final in Kyiv. Gareth Bale scored twice from the bench, replacing the disappointing Isco, while the Reds had nobody to call upon after losing Mohamed Salah to injury in the first-half.
Real could draw upon experience, Liverpool only had novices
Such strength in depth was the deciding factor in Kyiv, as Real head coach Zinedine Zidane had Bale, Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez to call upon if needed. Of the 13 …

Liverpool’s transfer activity will be highly scrutinised after scraping 4th place in the league and getting into the qualifying stage of the Champions League. Manchester City for instance have already purchased Bernardo Silva from Monaco and have apparently tied up a deal for Benfica’s keeper Ederson for a huge £34.7m.
This has prompted a social media meltdown from Liverpool fans, though the 2016/17 season has just barely concluded. The transfer window does not officially reopen for a month, but that does not mean business cannot be done now. So let’s have …
