Good evening, Liverpool fans. Here are your evening headlines for Sunday, October 25.
Lallana reveals Klopp discussion before Liverpool exit
Adam Lallana admits he felt rejected after a discussion with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp last season.
The former England international was allowed to leave the Reds following the expiration of his contract in the summer, signing for fellow Premier League club Brighton and Hove Albion.
And he has lifted the lid on the “frank conversation” he had with the Liverpool boss.
“I went in and asked the question because I wanted to know what my future looked like,” Lallana said.
“I had half an idea what the answer would be, but felt it would be better to know and to have a frank conversation. We had that much respect for each other.
“It is a weird feeling when you get told that you are kind of not wanted anymore. There is an initial feeling of rejection and I think that’s normal in any walk of life.
“But, after a couple of days, when I realised it was going to be my last season at Liverpool, I made sure that I treated every day, every training session, like it was my last and didn’t take anything for granted.
“I enjoyed the last six months as much as I did any year while I was at the club.”
Pundits give verdict on Fabinho VAR decision
Match of the Day pundits Jermaine Jenas and Micah Richards have claimed Fabinho’s challenge on Sheffield United Oli McBurnie should not have resulted in a penalty.
The Brazilian was penalised for the tackle despite appearing to get the ball. Sander Berge converted the penalty, but Liverpool turned the game around thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota.
And Jenas, speaking on Match of the Day, gave his verdict on another controversial VAR decision.
“First and foremost, should Fabinho go for the ball? No, he should stand off,” said the former Spurs midfielder.
“I don’t think it’s a penalty. I don’t think it’s a foul at all. It’s on the line, he gets some of the ball so it shouldn’t be given.
“It’s given by Mike Dean, he could have gone to the monitor but didn’t and VAR hasn’t seen it as a clear and obvious error and didn’t overturn it.”
Richards added: “He’s played in that position before, yes he’ll make mistakes. He’s not going to replace Van Dijk, nobody can do that but I think he’ll be a good replacement for the team until he gets back.”
PPV scheme could be axed as Reds fans help raise close to £120,000
The Premier League may scrap its newly-implemented pay-per-view service after backlash from fans.
Supporters have balked at the asking price of £14.95 for selected games, with Liverpool’s match against Sheffield United selected as a pay-per-view fixture.
Thousands of fans have refused to pay to watch their teams, instead donating money to local food banks.
A Newcastle fan group raised £20,000 for the city's West End foodbank, and Liverpool supporters have since helped raise close to £120,000 for the Fans Supporting Foodbanks group.
The Premier League are now reviewing the PPV plans, which suggests that they could be abandoned.
