Football News

Liverpool fans, good day to you all.

We’ve got plenty of breaking news to get through today; some of it based on last night, some of it not. In any case, it’s better if we get right to it rather than waste any more time.

Watch the video above if you’re looking to be told the latest headlines. Read on below for some added details.

Klopp wants robust Sturridge

Aside from that one season alongside Luis Suarez, Daniel Sturridge’s Liverpool career can largely be defined by his numerous injury problems.

Jurgen Klopp, to his credit, has recognised this quickly, confirming to the press that he is looking to toughen up the England international.

Here's what Sturridge said about Klopp recently:

Sturridge featured in a match-day squad for Klopp for the first time this past weekend, and the German said he wanted to create situations where his forward was more robust.

"Daniel is coming closer and closer so he can train now seven or eight times in a row - that is the longest period since I've been here - and that will help him and in the end help us," Klopp said.

"My decision you will see (on Thursday) but it is closer and that is very good. The most important thing in these weeks is he can train without problems.

"We have to try to bring in a situation where he is more robust. If he is feeling in a good moment maybe a few minutes - or more - we will see in the game."

Gerrard's UEFA all-time XI inclusion

Meanwhile, Steven Gerrard has opened up on making UEFA’s all-time XI and, naturally, he’s delighted.

The former Liverpool captain featured in a three-man midfield alongside Xavi and Andres Iniesta. Think someone else deserved it more? Let us know in the comments box below.

We were thinking that perhaps one of the following men might have something to say about Gerrard’s inclusion:

Lovren on Firmino

Last, but not least, Dejan Lovren has delivered his thoughts on Roberto Firmino and he believes the Brazilian is only going to get better as he settles into his Anfield groove.

The playmaker, a summer import from Hoffenheim, has come to prominence under Jurgen Klopp. Lovren reckons things are only going to get better for him as he’s an ‘unbelievable player’.

Here’s to hoping.
