Football News

Liverpool fans, happy Monday.

With the weekend’s action starting to roll down your digestive track now is the perfect time to take a look at the biggest stories doing the rounds in the world of football.

Read on below to see our neatly compiled round-up - tailored, of course, to your club - or watch the video above.

Lucas on Klopp's speech

By all accounts, Lucas Leiva was lucky to stay on the pitch during Liverpool’s win over Chelsea this weekend, but the Brazilian has heralded Jurgen Klopp instead of focusing on the potential mistake that could have cost his side the game.

Lucas told how Klopp delivered an inspiring speech concerning conceding goals that motivated his team to stay upbeat despite having gone a goal down thanks to an early Ramires header.

“We conceded an early goal and during the last few months if we conceded a goal our body language maybe wasn’t the best, but after the Southampton game the manager spoke to us and said you can’t think too much about a goal if you concede it, and you just need to get back on your game," he told Liverpool's official website.

“That’s what we did I think and the goal came at the right time for us just before half-time, but even in the first-half I thought we were the better team."

Philippe Coutinho bagged himself a classy brace and Christian Benteke rounded off the scoring to ensure Reds fans went home happy.

Mourinho's woes continue

Elsewhere, the shoe was on the other foot with Mourinho, who apparently didn’t even talk to his players after the game at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Ramires has revealed that the manager didn’t say anything because he didn’t think it was the right time to do so. Contrasting fortunes, that’s for sure.

Lallana on Ibe

Last but not least, Adam Lallana has picked the man he believes is the best young player at Liverpool and it isn’t Jordon Ibe.

It is still a Jordan, though. 18-year-old Jordan Rossiter was the player named by Lallana as the most gifted emerging talent - he certainly has quite the reputation to live up to given that he’s been compared to Steven Gerrard in the past.
