What way for Liverpool as major stars become major doubts

Liverpool

Liverpool have shown the character of real Premier League title contenders with their fine form and unbeaten run so far in the league.

The Merseyside club are now third in the league table with 20 points after 8 games, one of the best outings they have had in few years.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has made it clear of his intention to gun for a title this season stressing that a second place for his side cannot be celebrated as a medal.

This bid to ensure a title win seems to be threatened with the latest reports of injury of most of the key members of the team from the international break.

Last season’s golden boot winner Mohamed Salah was the first to pick up a muscle injury while on duty with his Egyptian side and was immediately flown back to England for treatment and monitoring.

Virgil van Dijk has also got issues with his rib and is still struggling to get over the pain, a development that has kept him away from his country’s last game.

The next sad news came from Senegal where Saidio Mane reportedly broke his thumb and was immediately substituted and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Naby Keita remains the latest report from Guinea on Tuesday where he picked up a hamstring injury, making him a doubt for Liverpool when they return from the international game.

With Huddersfield in sight for the Reds, there are no assurances that the above mentioned players will return fully ahead of the game, making it a big blow for the German manager.

Can Klopp boast of replacements for these stars or will he force them to a return, not minding their fitness level? All of these need to be answered to find a way out for the Anfield team.

Kieran Tierney

Arsenal will reportedly make a third bid for Celtic defender Kieran Tierney in the coming days.

This is according to the publication from Daily Record which revealed that the Gunners are preparing a third bid for the Scottish international left-back.

It was revealed that Arsenal will make another £25m for the player with better payment arrangement.

Arsenal had earlier made a second bid of £25m which included £7m in add-ons.

Celtic swiftly turned down that second bid which had just £18m in upfront payment.

Arsenal will offer more in upfront payment from the £25m to meet the financial demand from Scottish Premiership giants Celtic.

The Gunners have identified Kieran Tierney as their major transfer target in their quest to sign a new left-back this summer.

They had earlier made a first bid of just £15m for the player.

Arsenal left-backs Sead Kolasinac and Nacho Mineral were unable to meet up with what was demanded by club manager Unai Emery in that position hence the need to sign a new player for that position.

Kieran Tierney, 22, has been recovering from hernia and hip problems but he’s expected to be fit by next month.

He wants the move to Arsenal but the Scottish player won’t force the transfer.
