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 …

Real Madrid travel to the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kyiv, Ukraine to face Liverpool in the Champions League final on Saturday evening.
Los Blancos are chasing an historic third consecutive European crown – their fourth in five seasons – while the Reds are hoping for their first major trophy under Jurgen Klopp and their second European title in 13 years.

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 …

If you’re looking to catch your favourite Premier League teams on their pre-season tour this summer then there are a few different places you’re going to need to have a look at. With an El Classico pre-season friendly heading over to America, and some of the Premier League teams heading to Asia, Europe and America too, there’s going to be plenty of action to catch wherever you are. If you’re heading out to America to catch your teams then you need to make sure you carry out an ESTA renewal …

Though he is Liverpool’s Captain Jordan Henderson still provides a divide in opinion between not just Liverpool fans, but football followers in general. Whereas some can appreciate his industrious nature, others tend to see him as an individual who has stolen a career as soon as they hear his name.
When Kenny Dalglish bought Henderson for an initial £16 million fee (that had the chance to rise to £20 million) from his hometown club Sunderland in the summer of 2011, not surprisingly, numerous eyebrows were raised. Henderson had come through the …

The recent gossip and disappointment surfacing about Liverpool being a selling club baffles me to some extent as you’ve got to digest the news with some context.
Swiss researchers: since 2010 Liverpool have made more money than any club in the world from selling players – £378m. Valencia second £370m

Most of our recent money influx has come from the sale of players like Torres (wanted away with a tiny part of the money got from selling him astutely being invested in the Uruguayan biter), Suarez (claims …

When Philippe Coutinho was chosen by his peers as part of the PFA’s 2015 Premier League Team of the Year, it seemed as though the world was about to fall at his feet.
His prodigious natural talent had seen him entrusted as playmaker-in-chief and potential heir to Luis Suarez as Liverpool’s most talismanic player. It suggested that better times were looming large on the horizon for both the player and the club, despite the team’s laboured efforts on the pitch and the largely clueless management of Brendan Rodgers.
Fast forward seven months …

It is not very often that a manager will lead his players to salute the fans after his team draws. Jurgen Klopp is not like any other managers, though, and he did just that. At the end of the game against West Brom on Sunday, the manager led the Liverpool players to the Kop where they all saluted the fans for the support they gave.
Liverpool was 2 – 1 down against West Brom until the 96th minutes. Divock Origi managed to rescue a point for the Red thanks to a …
