Liverpool was lucky

Liverpool goal scorer Sadio Mane said that his team was fortunate to snatch a late winner in the derby game against Everton.

He believes that Everton has played a great defensive game and that they were looking to get a draw from the match but Liverpool did not lose hope of winning the game.

He said that it is Liverpool’s fighting spirit that allowed them to score a late goal and win the match. However, he thinks that it was a deserved goal given that they were the only side that tried to win the game and that they were positive throughout the whole match.

Mane scored a goal late during the game when he connected with a rebound that came off the post following a fierce shot from Daniel Sturridge.

Sadio Mane said that he is happy to have scored a goal for the game and believed that this is only down to luck. He said that he was in the right place at the right moment and this allowed him to score an important goal for the team. Read more »

Steven Gerrard reveals he wants to Play with Francesco Totti

Steven Gerrard has revealed that Roma forward Francesco Totti is the one player he has always wanted to play with.

Roma’s one club man Totti has been serving the club for more than 25 years, but he will represent to the club for one last season. He has announced his decision to retire from the game at the end of the 2016-17 season. He will take part in his final pre-season of his career and Gerrard has the possibility to celebrate this occasion by taking part in the friendly games. Roma are currently in the United States playing against the likes of Liverpool and Montreal Impact.

Gerrard also came close to being one of the few one club players in the world before he joined LA Galaxy on a two-year contract last summer. He had resisted the urge to join Chelsea back in 2005. Even though Totti has had opportunities and offers from different clubs across Europe, he resisted the chance to move even though it meant that he has won fewer titles in his career. The 39-year-old has made more than 750 appearances for Roma since making his debut in the 1992-93 season. However, he has managed to win only one league title in all these years. Read more »

Oldham Athletic vs. Liverpool Preview

The weekend’s FA Cup matches conclude at Boundary Park on Sunday afternoon as League One Oldham Athletic host seven times winners Liverpool.

The two sides met in last season’s competition, with the Reds running out 5-1 winners having gone a goal down in the third round tie at Anfield.

The hosts, who have lost the three league games since beating Nottingham Forest in the last round,  are without midfielder Dean Furman, who is with South Africa at the Africa Cup of Nations, with life-long Liverpool fan James Wesolowski set to wear the captain’s armband in his absence.

Top scorer Jose Baxter, who is on loan from Everton, is priced at 15.0 (14/1) with Bet 365 to get the first goal of the game.

Paul Dickov’s men are 15.0 (14/1) with Bet 365 to win the match, with Liverpool 1.29 (2/7) with Paddy Power. The draw is widely available at 6.5 (11/2).

Liverpool, who edged past non-league Mansfield Town in round 3, go in to the game in good form having won four of their last five games in all competitions.

Glen Johnson is doubtful with a hamstring injury, with Jose Enrique side-lined with a similar issue. Brad Jones is set to continue in goal.

Luis Suarez has 20 for the season so far, and is unsurprisingly favourite to open the scoring at a best price of 3.5 (5/2), whilst Daniel Sturridge, who has scored in each of his three appearances for the Reds so far is 4.33 (10/3) with Bet 365.
