Liverpool HAMMER Crystal Palace 7-0 at Selhurst Park

Two goals each for Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah powered the Reds to their best ever win in the Premier League, on a dominant day at Selhurst Park.

Jurgen Klopp’s team were on top form right from the off in this one as forgotten man Takumi Minamino slotted home Sadio Mane’s pass after just three minutes.

But despite taking their foot off the gas after that, the visitors eventually found themselves three up at the break, as Mane powered home Firmino’s pass and the Brazilian calmly poked home Andy Robertson’s delivery.

Palace did look to try and fight from some pride after the restart, but with Liverpool in this type of form there was simply no answer from Roy Hodgson’s side.

Skipper Jordan Henderson cushioned home his first of the season from Trent Alexander Arnold’s pass
before the brilliant Firmino made it five just after the hour.

Klopp threw on Salah to give Palace a few more nightmares in the last 30 and the Egyptian’s pass was cleverly dinked home by Firmino.

And with Mane and Firmino both enjoying brilliant afternoons in South London, Salah was not to be left out in final ten minutes.

Liverpool’s top scorer this season stayed alive in the box to nod home Joel Matip’s knockdown before he curled home the goal of the day to make it a magnificent seven for Klopp.

Liverpool cruise past Leicester City with 3-0 Anfield Premier League win

Jurgen Klopp’s faced the Foxes without a host of first team stars, with goals from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino, plus a Jonny Evans own goal, secured a vital win.

The Reds just about edged a tight opening at Anfield, as Jota and Curtis Jones forced early stops from Kasper Schmeichel.

But despite all of the attacking talent on display for Klopp, Liverpool’s opener came via a bizarre own goal.

Jordan Henderson’s corner caused problems in the Foxes box and the unfortunate Evans could nothing to stop the ball ricocheting off him an into the net.

That slice of luck boosted Liverpool’s confidence before the break, as Jota extended their lead on 42 minutes.

The Portuguese international has enjoyed a brilliant start to life at Anfield and he flicked home a perfect header from Andy Robertson’s cross.

Leicester did look to rally after the break, as Brendan Rodgers’ side cranked up the pressure, with Alisson making vital saves from Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes.

But Liverpool always look as though they had another gear to move up into, and Firmino wrapped up all three points for Klopp as he powered home James Milner’s corner.

Premier League Preview: Liverpool v Leicester City

Jurgen Klopp is already without both of his first-choice centre backs after Joe Gomez joined Virgil Van Dijk on the sidelines.

Skipper Jordan Henderson is also out, after picking up a groin injury on international duty, with Trent Alexander-Arnold and
Mo Salah also missing from a depleted Reds side.

James Milner is expected to fill in for Trent at right back, with Fabinho moving back into defence in place of Gomez.

However, despite the mounting injury list for Klopp, Thiago Alcantara and Andy Robertson have both been passed fit to return.

For the Foxes, Rodgers also has issues in defence, with right backs Ricardo Pereira and Timothy Castagne ruled out.

Wesley Fofana should be OK to start at centre back, meaning Rodgers could name an unchanged starting line up from their win against Wolves last time out.

And it’s all set up for a 7.15pm kick off tomorrow night at Anfield.

Liverpool seal late 2-1 Premier League Anfield win over West Ham

Jurgen Klopp’s side struggled for large parts against the Hammers but on form Diogo Jota’s late goal secured a crucial three points.

David Moyes’ side started slowly at Anfield but the visitors were gifted an opening goal inside the first ten minutes.

Joe Gomez made a complete mess of Arthur Masuaku’s cross into the box and Pablo Fornals reacted quickly to lash an effort past Alisson.

Liverpool did look to launch a response before the break with Trent Alexander-Arnold almost catching out Lukasz Fabianksi and Andy Robertson firing over.

But just as West Ham were gifted an opening goal, Liverpool were given a massive helping hand for their equaliser just before the break.

Masuaku tangled with Mo Salah inside the box and despite any contact appearing minimal, referee Kevin Friend pointed to the spot, and the Egyptian tucked home.

The Reds looked to take up the initiative after the break as Klopp threw on Jota and Xherdan Shaqiri.

Those changes tipped the balance for hosts as Jota bravely converted Sadio Mane’s saved shot.

But Friend was to frustrate Liverpool this time as he ruled it out for offside against Mane.

However, Jota was not to be denied another goal in his impressive start to life at Liverpool as gambled on Shaqiri’s clever chip to fire home.

Liverpool see off unambitious Arsenal at Anfield.

Sadio Mane, Andy Robertson and Diogo Jota, on his home debut, all scored after Alexandre Lacazette had been gifted the opener after a Robertson error.

If the France international’s finish from Arsenal’s first shot on target in the 25th minute was not that convincing his performance in two second-half one-on-ones – one latterly flagged offside – with Alisson Becker was even less so and his misses will have left Mikael Arteta wondering what night have been on a wet Monday night in Anfield.

Liverpool dominated however and had 21 shots on goal compated to their opponents 4 and in truth looked very comfortable beofre Diogo Jota marked his debut with a late goal on the 88th minute.

Arsenal, with David Luiz restored to a back three and two holding midfielders in Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka, seemed in no mood to take the game to their hosts as Premier League newcomers Leeds had so thrillingly done on the opening weekend of the season.

Instead they sat back, rarely engaging as Liverpool played out from the defence, in the hope of hitting on the break.

There was a touch of fortune rather than thought about the Gunners opener with a Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s over-hit cross mis-controlled by Andy Roberson into the path of Lacazette.

The France international also mis-kicked his shot but he succeeded in bouncing it into the floor and agonisingly over the outstretched arm of Alisson.

However, if Arteta was hoping to hold on to that lead his plan was dashed after 147 seconds as Leno parried Mohamed Salah’s shot and Mane pounced for the equaliser.

Seven minutes later Liverpool were ahead as yet another Alexander-Arnold cross found its target in the penalty area, this time his opposite full-back Robertson making amends for his earlier error by controlling on his chest and poking home.

The final word was left to Liverpool’s new signing Jota, on as a late substitute, who finally put the match to bed two minutes from time when he seized a weak David Luiz header, controlling and firing low into the Kop net having earlier wasted a better chance with only Leno to beat.

Liverpool are now joint top of the League with Leicester and Everton with the final score at Anfield Liverpool 3 – Arsenal 1.

Liverpool close in on first transfer of summer

The left-back, who featured against Wolves in the Europa League last week, is set to be signed as much-needed cover for Andy Robertson.

Liverpool moved for the Greece international having walked away from their pursuit of Norwich’s Jamal Lewis after the Canaries set their asking price at double the initial £10million offer the Reds made to the relegated Premier League club.

It is understood Liverpool’s sporting director Michael Edwards met with Olympiacos general director Lina Souloukou at Molineux on Thursday to finalise a deal for the 24-year-old.

Tsimikas’ medical is set to take place over the next couple of days and while personal terms have yet to be agreed, the club are confident that will not be a sticking point ahead of him signing what is expected to be a five-year contract.

He will be Liverpool’s first signing of the summer, having seen centre-back Dejan Lovren leave in a £10.9million deal to Zenit St Petersburg and midfielder Adam Lallana join Brighton following the expiration of his contract.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp does not anticipate having a busy or big-spending transfer window but is looking to strengthen central defensive options and potentially his forward line.

Former Portsmouth. Middlesbrough and Bolton midfielder Gary O’Neil has been appointed as assistant coach of Liverpool’s U23s, joining the backroom team of Barry Lewtas who has stepped up from the under-18s this summer.
