New Liverpool Women signing reveals tattoo
We think new Liverpool Women signing Rylee Foster will fit right into life at the Reds - she’s already got a great tattoo!
Liverpool could be 'attractive proposition' for Mbappe
We’re just going to leave this here...
Robbie Keane on 'fantastic' Liverpool fans
Robbie Keane has played for both Liverpool and tonight’s opponents Wolves - and he’s been talking about his experiences in the programme for the game.
Keane joined the Reds in 2008 and recalls the feeling of playing at Anfield.
It was great playing with top players. Xabi Alonso, Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard, Jamie Carragher, I couldn’t ask for better people. Gerrard’s a good friend of mine.
To play in front of the Kop was fantastic and those memories will stick with me for many years.
Even when I left and came back with Tottenham against them, I got a great reception, so they’ve always been fantastic to me and there’s nothing like playing at Anfield.”
Keane also revealed his favourite moment in a Liverpool shirt.
For Liverpool, it was probably scoring against Arsenal. It was a half-volley from 18 yards, I got a good connection into the top corner, after I’d been hammered all game. That certainly stands out for me.
Suso linked with Spain return
Sevilla are reportedly considering a move for former Liverpool playmaker Suso.
The Spaniard has fallen out of favour at AC Milan and ElDesmarque, cited by Calciomercato.com, claim Sevilla could make a move after see their efforts to sign Xherdan Shaqiri knocked back.
I’d take him back as a squad player at Anfield to be honest.
Trabzonspor 'name Cakir price'
It’s been a few days but Liverpool have been linked with Ugurcan Cakir again!
The Reds have been tipped as a potential destination for the Turk for what feels like an eternity.
Yesterday, Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu revealed the club have rejected a €20m offer for the goalkeeper.
Liverpool have Alisson. They’re not spending that much on a back-up goalkeeper. Moving on...
Predicted line ups
Just the one change from me tonight. And it’s not Fabinho...
Here’s what we’ve all gone for...
Mane on career-changing Liverpool moment
Sadio Mane has outlined Liverpool’s targets for the season and explained the one moment which changed everything.
Intrigued? Caoimhe O’Neill has the story HERE
Fabinho gives fitness update
Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has vowed his substitute appearance against Manchester United on the weekend was the first step to him getting back to full fitness.
The No.3 suffered an ankle injury in last November’s game with Napoli, that has seen him miss almost two crucial months of the season.
The Brazilian played the final 10 minutes of the 2-0 win at Anfield on Sunday, after replacing Sadio Mane.
He has since detailed his joy to be back available for selection.

Not Liverpool-related but the transfer window is broken if this rumour is anything to go by...
Liverpool linked with Fabian Ruiz
Liverpool are reportedly interested in signing Fabian Ruiz according to reports in Spain.
The Reds are said to be interested in signing Isco according to El Desmarque, but the same report claims Napoli midfielder Ruiz has been identified as a potential alternative.
However, the report, cited by HITC, concedes 23-year-old Ruiz would cost more than Isco should Liverpool follow up their interest.
Emre Can 'nears Juventus exit'
Emre Can is reportedly heading back to the Bundesliga with reports in Germany claiming he’s set to join Borussia Dortmund.
Having found himself surplus to requirements at Juventus, the former Liverpool midfielder had been linked with a potential move to Everton or Manchester United.
The 26-year-old is believed to prepared to take a pay cut on his €12m annual salary in order to secure a move away from Turin, with Sky Germany, cited by the Daily Star, reporting Dortmund have competition from RB Leipzig and are looking likely to be his next club.
FA ignore Klopp concerns
The FA will not bow down to pressure from Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola regarding fixture congestion.
The duo have been two of the most vocal managers taking issue with the strain put on their players, with calls for FA Cup replays to be scrapped continuing as a result.
But despite growing fears over player fatigue and injury, the FA are unwilling to make such a change because of the revenue they can bring to lower league clubs report the Daily Mail.
The FA also made a sacrifice last year by dumping fifth-round replays to create space for the winter break as part of an agreement with the Premier League and the EFL, and insist they will not give ground again.
As a result there are unlikely to be any major changes in the domestic cups until 2024, the proposed start date for an expanded Champions League.
Ferdinand praises Liverpool
Rio Ferdinand is not happy with the way things are going at Manchester United these days.
He was in the BT Sport studio as they lost 2-0 to Burnley last night.
And while hitting out at his former club, he praised Liverpool and the example they set in how to build a team.
You look at Liverpool and they are the team who everyone is aspiring to be at the moment.
That club don’t buy players because they are the best player in a certain position. They buy a player who is the best to fit in their system and will actually be in that system for a number of years.
It’s not a short-term fix, it’s longevity that they are looking for. But at United they have been finding stop-gaps and (Alexis) Sanchez is a great example. They try and fix problems quickly but it doesn’t work like that.
WATCH: Klopp on Fabinho return
Fabinho made his return from injury against Manchester United at the weekend but could he start tonight?
Don’t bank on it...
Vote of confidence?
Looks like Ole Gunnar Solskjaer might have just been given the dreaded vote of confidence.
Sky Sports are reporting Manchester United have no plans to sack him despite the Red Devils following up Sunday’s 2-0 defeat at Anfield with another 2-0 loss - this time at home to Burnley.
West Ham 'eye Fraser move'
It’s only a few months since Ryan Fraser was repeatedly linked with a move to Liverpool with some sources even claiming a deal had been agreed.
Paul Gorst swiftly shut down that suggestion and, with AFC Bournemouth struggling and the winger failing to match the standards he set last year, such talk has been extinguished. At least for now.
But that hasn’t stopped the Scotland international from being tipped for a move elsewhere with the Mirror claiming West Ham will look to sign him on a free transfer this summer.
Liverpool might have distanced themselves from making a move but I’d still take him on a free. Never know, he could end up being the latest success story from a relegated club after Gini Wijnaldum, Andy Robertson and Xherdan Shaqiri...
Liverpool 'want' Gabriel Martinelli
Gabriel Martinelli has enjoyed a sensational start to life in England.
The Brazilian has only made 12 starts for Arsenal yet he’s already scored 10 goals. A great return for any player never mind an 18-year-old signed from the depths of Brazilian football.
Unsurprisingly the forward’s form has not gone unnoticed with Liverpool reportedly keen on Martinelli according to Football Insider.
They claim Michael Edwards is hot on his trail with the Reds planning to keep close tabs on the teenager in the second half of the campaign ahead of a potential move.
The lad looks a player and it’s safe to say he’ll cost a lot more than the £6m Arsenal paid for him.
But while it’s not inconceivable that he is the type of player the Reds would identify, you’d imagine the Gunners would make it very difficult for any interested club.
Including the latest on Xherdan Shaqiri, here’s our latest Liverpool transfer tales for you to sink your teeth into...
Let's all have a disco...
Let’s all have a disco, Salah, Mane, Isco!
That’s right, Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Real Madrid star.
El Desmarque, cited by the Daily Star, claim Jurgen Klopp is keen to bring the Spaniard to Anfield, believing he would provide a creative spark and a different option to his midfield options.
The 27-year-old has found himself out of favour this season and has been linked with a move away for a number of months as a result.
And the report claims Madrid would be willing to sell for £59m as a result, having already rejected a bid of £47.3m from an unnamed club.
Well Liverpool are highly unlikely to make any more signings this one so that is one spanner thrown in the works.
Admittedly £59m doesn’t seem to much for a player of Isco’s quality in the current market, but is it really a price Klopp would be willing to spend on a player not guaranteed to be first-choice at Anfield?
I have my doubts...

Liverpool playing Wolves at wrong time but they shouldn't worry
Liverpool head to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Thursday night looking to keep the monumental gap between themselves and the rest of the Premier League.
After beating Manchester United on Sunday, the Reds extended their lead at the top of the domestic table to 16 points only for their nearest challengers Manchester City to cut the gap back down to 13 points in a hard-fought 1-0 win at Sheffield United on Tuesday.
Jurgen Klopp’s side do have two games in hand over the defending champions and will be aiming to extend their lead to an almost unassailable target by firstly winning at the Molineux Stadium before then travelling to London to face West Ham next Wednesday in the domestic competition.
