carli-lloyd

Carli Lloyd, winner of both the Ballon d’Or (World Player of the Year) and Golden Ball (World Cup MVP) in 2015 battled injuries in 2016. She suffered a sprained MCL with the NWSL’s Houston Dash on April 23, but returned in time for the Summer Olympics in Rio. It appears 2017 will also see her playing overseas for a bit, as there is talk she is set to join Manchester City on loan.

jurgen klopp

What a difference a Sadio Mane makes. With the Senegal attacker away on international duty in the Africa Cup of Nations, Liverpool FC had a disastrous January. The struggles continued into the beginning of February, but today brought a total 180. Mane, who brings to the LFC table a skill set that no one else on the roster really has, bagged a double and Liverpool downed Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 at Anfield.

The Reds continued their recent trend of consistently beating Spurs, and Manager Jurgen Klopp was very pleased with the result; as one would expect.

Liverpool FC Banned The Sun From All Club Premises, Events

hillsborough

Liverpool Football Club have long had a very contentious relationship with The Sun, due to the publication’s failed coverage of the Hillsborough Disaster. Infamous “THE TRUTH” headlines from The Sun are some of the most egregious examples of victim blaming that occurred in the wake of the 1989 tragedy that claimed the lives of 96 Liverpool supporters.

Recent inquests into the disaster revealed that the fans were illegally killed due to negligence by the authorities, and that this negligence was covered up. Much of the initial public opinion was slanted against the fans who lost their lives, and much of that lies at the hands of The Sun.

Predicted Liverpool FC Starting XI versus Tottenham

liverpool-fc

Liverpool’s 2017 struggles continued last week, with a 2-0 loss to Hull. Saturday, they host Spurs in what is a crucial game for Liverpool’s top-4 hopes.

Despite a miscue that directly resulted in Hull’s first goal, Simon Mignolet will start in net for Liverpool. Neither Mignolet nor Loris Karius has had sustained success for the Reds between the pipes this year, but it should still be Mignolet’s job right now.

Jurgen Klopp Says Diego Costa and Him Would “Never Be Friends” on the Pitch

diego-costa

Diego Costa and Chelsea battled Liverpool to a 1-1 draw yesterday in a match that many would consider a victory for the Reds and a loss for the Blues. Given the horrendous January that Liverpool had, this was definitely a moral victory. Considering that Chelsea had won 16 of their last 18 heading into the league fixture, this has got to be considered a setback.

Diego Costa, the man who everybody has a strong opinion on, once again played a major role in the outcome of the match, and of course, it was a controversial.

Wait, what?

Did I hear that correctly?

Jose Mourinho Latest Manager to Speak Out Against Fixture Congestion

jose mourinho

Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Liverpool entered January with an insanely jammed schedule, and now as the month draws to a close, they have one win in their last eight across all competitions. Maybe the return of Sadio Mane will save them? Of course, the Reds entered that period already weary from festive season fixture congestion.

Now Manchester United face some serious fixture congestion of their own. Of course, that’s partially due to the Red Devils being proverbial “victims of their own success.”

Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs Chelsea FC

Struggling Liverpool gets back into Premier League action on Tuesday when they host Chelsea. The Reds had an awful week last week, being knocked out of both the EFL and FA Cups.

Liverpool have won just once in 2017 and now find themselves in a top-4 battle for the rest of the season.

After Loris Karius played in both Cup games during the week, Simon Mignolet should return in goal for the Reds against Chelsea. He last played in a 3-2 loss to Swansea, but he should be the keeper moving forward.
