Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has called for fans to help the club in their quest to win the Premier League this season, Saying they will fight with every fibre for the trophy.

Jurgen Klopp has urged his Liverpool players to fight with every fibre of their bodies for the Premier League title, while also issuing a rallying call to supporters. The Reds host Bournemouth at Anfield on Saturday, knowing victory will take them back to the top of the table with a three-point cushion before Manchester City host Chelsea.

After dropping points with consecutive draws against Leicester and West Ham, Liverpool’s title credentials have come under scrutiny despite Klopp’s side being defeated only once all season. Of the reaction to City making up ground on his men, Klopp replied: “I didn’t read or watch it but I still know it. We know if you want to be top of the table and champion at the end of the season you have to show real passion, real desire, you have to fight that’s what you have to do.

“I got a message this week – and that’s another sign that maybe people think I need help but thank you very much I’m fine – it said in the last 12 games City dropped 10 points and we dropped seven. I didn’t know that because I don’t think like that but obviously the view from outside is completely different. The only tool we really have to sort our situation is football and is passion and a proper fight – being aggressive in the most legal way.”

Klopp confirmed that Trent Alexander-Arnold returned to first-team training this week, while captain Jordan Henderson and Georginio Wijnaldum are also back in contention. The German boss has made a plea to Liverpool fans to replicate the determination of the players and turn Anfield into a cauldron of atmosphere, even if it means getting into the stadium much earlier than usual.

“We have to show on the pitch we are ready to fight, and the people on the stand have to show they are ready to fight as well. I’ve never left in doubt how much I appreciate the support and believe in the help. We have to fight but then our crowd is always there. I’m not sure if I experienced yet that the supporters are there early – it’s completely different to Germany, a lot of them are one and a half hours there before,” Klopp said.

“I’m long enough here to be used to it, but of course it would be nice. The good thing is all of us know what to do – the players on the pitch and the people in the stand. I don’t know if I have to ask for it but whoever wants us to succeed in this game and wants to help… I don’t have the English impression for it but it’s like shouting your soul onto the pitch, that’s how we say it in German. We’ve created a very good basis for this finish. I know we will be ready with each fibre of our bodies to fight for everything. Then after the season we can look back and say we gave our everything, that is how it is.”

And the Red Devils are now looking to launch a bid for Felix in the next transfer window as they continue to add youth to their ranks. It is understood Benfica would be willing to sell the youngster, but would want around £100m for his signature. An Old Trafford source said: “The club went to see Felix in action and it was all positive. He is seen as a real talent.“He is definitely someone who is increasingly of interest. He is a clever playmaker and in a similar vein to Portugal legend Deco. “The scouts saw him during the derby against Sporting Lisbon and he scored. There looks like there is going to be moves for him.”

Emery tells Arsenal fans why Europa League loss at BATE Borisov is not a shock

Published

Arsenal’s European ambitions are hanging by a thread after a humiliating defeat in Belarus that ended with Alexandre Lacazette being shown a straight red card for elbowing a BATE Borisov player in the face with miuntes left in the game. Lacazette’s dismissal marked the lowest point of one of the worst nights of Unai Emery’s spell at Arsenal, with the head coach unable to change the game after his side fell behind to a first-half goal.

But Emery insisted later that he was not shocked by the defeat, saying that his team deserved more from the match and adding that he had full faith in his players to turn the tie around at the Emirates next week. But the Spaniard will have to mastermind a comeback without the suspended Lacazette, with the £50 million striker arguably being Arsenal’s most consistent attacker since the turn of the year. “I did not see the action but we need to control the frustration,” said Emery.

The Arsenal boss added: “We play another 90 minutes next week and I am sure it is going to be different. The first half was a good performance, we had chances to score. I am happy with the players’ effort. Defensively when they were 1-0 up they were organised and competitive. Our big opportunity is next week at home. I trust in our players and in our stadium with our supporters. We can win or lose but I trust in our work and preparations to make a different result.”

Emery again faced questions about the absence of Mesut Ozil, who was left at home in London despite returning to full training following a recent illness. Arsenal again lacked creativity in central areas, but Emery said the players that he selected had deserved to win the match. “Those that were here, we can win with them and we deserved that,” Emery said. “Last week we won and we played with the same players. We deserved to win but did not get the result. They were very organised. We can win with every player and lose with the same players.”

The night was made worse for Arsenal when Aleksei Baga, the BATE head coach, later said he was not surprised by how poor the visiting side had been. “It was not a surprise for us,” said Baga. “We were preparing hard tactically and there was no surprise at all to see such a game from Arsenal.”

Do you agree with Emery? What did the Arsenal coach get wrong against BATE?
