According to the Sun, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is set to spend again on his defence in the Summer despite bringing in Van Dijk for a club record fee last year. The Liverpool boss was understood to be keen on cover during the transfer window – but ended up with no signings.

And after Nathaniel Clyne was loaned out Klopp was left counting the cost with Joe Gomez, Dejan Lovren and Trent Alexander-Arnold crocked. Klopp will look to strengthen his back-up behind first-choice centre-backs Virgil van Dijk and Gomez when the Premier League title challenge concludes in May.

Before the window opened Klopp said he would “keep the door open” for new arrivals. Sporting director Michael Edwards is the transfer guru on Merseyside but players are only recruited if Klopp wants him – and owners Fenway Group.   Edwards also monitors the market for player coming available but the club did not make a January signing, unlike a year ago when Van Dijk arrived and made an instant impact.

They also agreed to loan Clyne to Bournemouth, just before Alexander-Arnold was injured which left Klopp needing to juggle at right-back. The German’s big now is to boost morale after draws against Leicester and West Ham have given Manchester City momentum in the title race.  Meanwhile, Liverpool legend John Aldridge has told Jurgen Klopp to axe Adam Lallana and Naby Keita after their poor performances against West Ham. The Reds drew 1-1 at the London Stadium on Monday night after Michail Antonio cancelled out Sadio Mane’s opening goal, which should have been ruled offside.

However, it could have been much worse for Liverpool as the Hammers wasted a number of good opportunities to win the match. The result means Manchester City moved top of the Premier League on Wednesday night with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park. City are level on points with Klopp‘s men – who have played a game less – but the Citizens have a better goal difference. And Aldridge was far from impressed with what he saw on Monday especially from Lallana and Keita, who started against the Hammers with Georginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson missing through injury.

“Klopp’s side dropped more points at West Ham, but a bigger issue for me in both games has been the performance or lack of it from Liverpool’s midfielders,” Aldridge told Independent.ie. “Salah, Mane and Firmino will give you a cutting edge if the of the team is right, but the players sitting behind them at West Ham failed to produce the goods and it cost Liverpool. “I know Klopp was forced into changes due to injuries, but Adam Lallana and Naby Keita cannot play together in midfield again, as they are just not up to the job for a title-winning team.

“My first impressions of Lallana when he came to Liverpool were not positive and while he proved me wrong to an extent with some good performances before his recent injury problems, it looks like he is struggling to get back to those levels once again after so long in the treatment room. “As for Keita, he has not settled at Liverpool and has failed to deliver the performances we were expecting from him, with Klopp and his coaching staff fighting to get him up to and still waiting to see if he will be good enough to play in this team.”

Transfer: Solskjaer, Woodward clash over Pogba’s move to Real Madrid

Transfer: Solskjaer, Woodward clash over Pogba’s move to Real Madrid Pogba Solskjaer 1143342567

Manchester United manager, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is prepared to let Paul Pogba join Real Madrid this summer in a £120million move, the UK Sun reports.

Pogba was seen as key to Solskjaer’s rebuilding project at Old Trafford, when he took over last December.

The France midfielder was keen on joining Barcelona last summer and, despite a mid-season upturn in performances, he remains keen on leaving the club and is said to have informed Solskjaer of his desire to join Real Madrid.

United’s executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, believes losing Pogba to the Spanish giants would be a major blow to United’s image and reputation across the world.

However, Solskjaer feels he can’t afford to carry passengers, as he looks to rebuild the club and is willing to let Pogba leave.

The Norwegian coach knows the pressure will be on during his first full season in charge and he wants players that he can rely on and that are fully focused on his project.

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others

EPL: Premier League introduces new rules on penalty kick, substitution, handball, cards for managers, others Premier League Rebrands DesignStudio

The International Association Board, IFAB, has approved new rules and changes ahead of the 2019/2020 season.

The 2018/19 Premier League campaign finished last Sunday with Manchester City claiming the title.

The new rules affect Freekicks, substitution, handball, dropball, and cards for managers.

It is already established that video assistant referee, VAR, will be used in the league next season.

These alterations will have a huge impact on the Premier League sides.

The IFAB has clarified the situation in regards to handball decisions ahead of next season

Handballs:

The new rule state that goals will be disallowed if the ball accidentally strikes a player’s hand in the build-up.

A free-kick will also be awarded outside of the penalty box if a player has accidentally created an advantage by handling the ball.

The IFAB has also had its say on drop balls and is aiming to get rid of ‘manufactured’ restarts.

IFAB explained that, “The current dropped ball procedure often leads to a ‘manufactured’ restart which is ‘exploited’ unfairly or an aggressive confrontation.

“Returning the ball to the team that last played it restores what was ‘lost’ when play was stopped, except in the penalty area where it is simpler to return the ball to the goalkeeper.

“To prevent that team gaining an unfair advantage, all players of both teams, except the player receiving the ball, must be at least 4m (4.5 yds) away.”

Substitution:

Another rule which has been introduced for next season sees some major alterations to substitutions.

Now players will have to leave the pitch at the nearest point rather than walk slowly across the field late in games and waste time.

Penalty kicks

This has certainly been overdue with goalkeepers taking advantage on penalty situations for a while now.

But from next season they will have to have one foot on the line.

Not only must keepers be touching the line, they will not be allowed to touch the goalposts before the ball is kicked.

Cards for coaches.

Referees will now be able to show them a yellow card or a red card in the same way they do with players on the pitch.
