After battling to a tough two-nil win against Crystal Palace on Monday, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has played down their chances of winning the premier league this term.

In response to Monday Night Football on the Red’s expectations of pushing for the title, Klopp said, ‘It’s very early. I couldn’t care less and it’s not important. We are not in a race with other Premier League teams each week saying ‘wow, they’ve scored these goals’ I was not 100 per cent sure in the first half we’d score [against Palace] but you have to be a real challenger and that’s what we are each week.’

Former RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita was outstanding in the middle for the Reds with his quick thinking, creativity and thinking, perhaps highlighting the reason Liverpool secured his transfer so early. Klopp, however, believes the former RB Leipzig man can still improve to become an even more rounded player.

A penalty goal from James Milner and a late Sadio Mane goal ensured Liverpool’s excellent start to the season continued but the defensive exploits of Netherlands international Virgil Van Dijk has not gone unnoticed with Klopp who suggested that the £75million signing from Southampton may well have been a bargain for the Merseyside outfit going by the quality he has displayed for the club since his arrival in January.

The Reds will turn their attention to Brighton & Hove Albion who they welcome to Anfield on the 25th of August 2018. Liverpool supporters can only hope that their impressive start to the new season continues.

Sarri Maurizio

Amidst growing speculations that Chelsea forward, Eden Hazard could be gone by the end of this campaign, Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has taken out time to reveal Eden Hazard’s weakness.

According to the Italian, the Belgium international doesn’t know the importance of scoring goals and creating goal assists.

Maurizio Sarri in previous post matches statements had urged the Belgian striker to set his goal targets for the current campaign at 40, which will surpass any of his past records if it becomes a reality.

Hazard, 27, is well known for his good dribbling skills but has not been all that effective in terms of scoring goals.

According to Sarri, Hazard could have done better scoring goals but the player’s main aim is to have fun on the pitch, which is restricting him.

Sarri in a statement disclosed that Eden Hazard ‘is immense and I don’t think even he knows how much he can still improve.’

The Italian made it known that the Blues forward can be one of the best three in the world if he stops seeing football as fun on every occasion.

Sarri said Hazard at times ‘doesn’t realize the importance of moving from fun to reaping the rewards.’

The coach finally added that the Blues forward needs to work for the good of the team and not for his personal glory.

Markus Babbel

The former Liverpool and Bayern defender Markus Babbel has described the situation at Manchester United as being laughable.

United are dip in controversies involving dressing room crisis, Manager Jose Mourinho’s rift with players and also bad results.

However, the Portuguese manager has been in the centre of all of the issues with speculations that he would be sacked.

It took the Red Devils’ 3-2 comeback against Newcastle in the weekend before the international break to calm situations at the club.

Babbel thinks sacking Mourinho is a wrong thing to do as he was bold to point to the club’s management as the party at fault and not the manager.

The head coach of A-League side Western Sydney Wanderers in Australia told Ominisport that everyone including United management know Mourinho to be a defensive coach who also wins trophies.

He, therefore, expressed surprise at why the club complains about the issue after going ahead to sign him.

According to him, it’s bad to recruit a coach and fail to trust him as in the case of the Manchester side and the former Chelsea boss.

Babbel adds that United as a club seems confused, not knowing what they really want, stressing that they would not have signed the Portuguese if they hadn’t wanted his style.

Alvaro Morata

Former Chelsea player and one time Ballon d’Or winner, Andriy Shevchenko, has reached out to Chelsea striker, Alvaro Morata.

The legendary goal scorer, who also had a poor moment at Chelsea advised the struggling Morata to be more clinical in terms of scoring goals.

Alvaro Morata has found himself struggling to score goals for Chelsea since his arrival from Real Madrid.

This season has seen the Blues striker score just two goals ( against Arsenal in the EPL and against Mol Vidi in the UEL) which is too low for a player of his calibre.

His performance has further raised speculations whether he is another Fernando Torres – who also struggled to perform for the Blues and had to take the exit earlier than expected.

Andriy Shevchenko in his statement quoted by Goal.com said  ‘The main thing is that Alvaro Morata has chances.’

He, however, believes that the striker can up his game if only he becomes ‘more clinical in front of goal.’

Andriy Shevchenko is confident of Morata scoring more goals if he takes to his advise.

Hopefully, Coach Maurizio Sarri will give the Spanish striker some more playing time to see if he will improve before making a final decision.
