Football News

Liverpool fans, welcome to the last round-up of the week.

We’ll confess we’re just as ready to embrace the weekend as you are, but before we do so there’s some breaking news to relay for your enjoyment.

Below is the latest information we could find on your club. Pretty please take the time to read it, perhaps watch the video above if you want the news presented to you and leave thoughts and opinions in the comments box below.

Allen's slating

Liverpool fans struggled to contain their disappointment at the 1-1 Europa League draw with Rubin Kazan last night, and one man, in particular, found the daggers pointed at him.

It wasn’t Jurgen Klopp, thankfully, but midfielder Joe Allen. The Welshman has struggled since his switch from Swansea City, and on last night’s performance it doesn’t look like things are getting better under Klopp.

Fans took to Twitter to slate Allen for his first-half showing against Rubin - you can guess what the general theme of the tweets was. If not, we'll show you:

Sakho's Instagram post

Meanwhile, Mamadou Sakho took to Instagram to thank fans after the match, posting a series of pictures with the caption ‘thank you all for your support tonight’.

The French defender was the man of the match at Anfield - it’s fair to say he’s in higher regard than the aforementioned Joe Allen.

Klopp on Can's position

Lastly, Klopp has talked up the idea of Emre Can playing in midfield but insisted that he wasn’t guaranteed to start for Liverpool there.

The German coach said he had known Can for some years as a midfielder, but also referenced the fact that he is a versatile player. Can scored Liverpool’s only goal in the 1-1 draw last night.
