Liverpool Must Sharpen Up If To Retain Title

Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Since Liverpool became champions for the first time in 30 years, Jurgen Klopp has been keen to stress that the best way to defend their crown is to attack the next one.

After opening up their quest for title No.20 in the 4-3 thriller against newly-promoted Leeds, these words rang very true. It wasn’t at all what Klopp was alluding to when looking at the bigger picture of the new season, but the performance perhaps threw the spotlight on an area of the team that few have seriously questioned in recent times.

Klopp Admits Liverpool Failed To Break Down Defensive Arsenal

Jurgen Klopp has admitted that the way Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta set his side up made life difficult for Liverpool in the Community Shield.

The Gunners claimed victory over the Reds at Wembley on Saturday, winning a penalty shootout 5-4 after the two sides couldn’t be separated during the 90 minutes.

It means Liverpool are the first side ever to lose the Community Shield on penalties in back-to-back years – but Jurgen Klopp played down the significance of the defeat.

Klopp said: “We were here to win the game, I hope that much was obvious. We didn’t lose the game but we lost the competition. If we scored earlier that would’ve helped but there wasn’t enough time.

Arsenal Win Another Trophy Under Arteta

Arsenal Community Shield

Mikel Arteta remains positive over Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future after his leading contribution in Arsenal’s Community Shield shootout win over Liverpool.

Aubameyang fired the Gunners to their second Wembley triumph of the month as Arteta’s side overcame the Premier League champions in the traditional season curtain-raiser.

Doubts remain over the striker’s future with the 31-year-old’s current contract set to expire in less than 12 months but talks are ongoing and Arteta feels that his talisman will be staying in North London.

Brighton owner Tony Bloom says he cannot see how clubs can be relegated from the Premier League if the season is not completed.

On Friday, the Premier League met to go through several scenarios to finish the campaign, but uncertainty still hangs over a season that has nine rounds to go.

“It would be very difficult to relegate somebody, particularly from the Premier League, if the season hasn’t played out,” said Bloom.

In the ‘scheduling model’ possibilities looked at on Friday, the earliest would start on 8 June. While it was not discussed as expected at that meeting, there are clubs who think 30 June should be the cut-off date for the season to end for contractual reasons.

International Champions Cup Cancelled

This summer’s International Champions Cup was supposed to include an El Clasico match between La Liga rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona. But unfortunately, due to the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak in the United States, not aonluy this event, but all international soccer games in USA in 2020 have been cancelled.

Without the lucrative preseason tournament, Real Madrid and Barcelona are expected up lose around €15M in revenue. That is a huge hit for clubs that are all facing the financial implications of the Coronavirus which has halted football across Europe, forcing clubs to lay off non-playing staff and asking players to take hefty pay cuts. Barcelona players for example, took a 70% pay cut.

Philippe Coutinho Wants To Return To Premier League Says Agent

Philippe Coutinho “would love a return to the Premier League” one day, but his agent insists everything remains a possibility when it comes to the future of the Brazil midfielder.

Coutinho is currently on loan at Bayern Munich from Barcelona, although the German club are not expected to make the deal permanent despite him contributing nine goals in 32 matches prior to the suspension of the Bundesliga due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The 27-year-old is relaxed about his future and has already attracted interest from the Premier League as his loan nears its end, with Chelsea, Everton and Arsenal among the clubs interested in the former Liverpool star.
