Jordan Henderson

Liverpool defender Jordan Henderson has returned from the injury that kept him away for a long while.

Jordan Henderson last saw a game for his Merseyside club about three weeks ago before returning last weekend.

He was later ruled out of England’s UEFA Nations League clash against Croatia at Wembley on Sunday having picked another knock in their game against USA on Thursday night.

He has now returned having been sighted in the Liverpool training session at Melwood Training Ground on Saturday.

The Reds captain’s return to Melwood will have him receive further treatment as he continues his progress from injury so as to regain full fitness to help his side in the title challenge.

The injury was confirmed by the England national team coach Gareth Southgate who stated that Jordan Henderson has been nursing a number of injuries but was made to play games because he always wants to be on the field of play.

However, the 28-year-old has had an inconsistent season owing to a series of injuries as he has started only six games for the Reds in all competitions this season.

He was part of the England team that featured at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Christian Pulisic

English premier League side Liverpool are reported to be willing to stand down their interest in long-term target Christian Pulisic as they will no longer be needing him anymore.

The alleged decision by the club is informed by the fact that there has been great improvement and development from summer signing Xhender Shaqiri which makes him win the heart of manager Jurgen Klopp.

Before now, the Reds were keen on the signature of Christian Pulisic had had the intention of having his signature in the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

However, the Swiss has been impressive in every opportunity handed to him which gives the manager what exactly Christian Pulisic would have given to the club.

Xhender Shaqiri joined the Reds in the last summer from Stoke City and had a slow start as he was initially not paid attention to by the manager.

With the latest development, the Reds will now be out of the race for Christian Pulisic, leaving Chelsea alone to have their way as they are also interested in his signature.

Meanwhile, the Reds are beginning to see more hope in a title win this season as they now sit top in the Premier League table.

Mertens Dries

Emerging reports indicate that West London boss Maurizio Sarri is seeking to lure star player Dries Mertens away from Napoli so as to have him pen his signature with the Blues at the Stamford Bridge.

The West London boss and Dries Mertens once worked together at the Italian Serie A outfit Napoli and proved to be a success having scored 34 goals in 46 games in the 206/2017 season and later 22 goals in 49 games the following year.

So far, Dries Mertens has scored in total. 203 goals in 553 appearances which make it a massive reported to tempt the West London boss into having him at the club.

Suggestions are that talian Serie A side will have to do more if they must keep Dries Mertens at the club with interest for her growing stronger.

The Blues have got some negative situation in the team with Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giround currently not in the best of form as they have failed to deliver goals.

The former Napoli boss is therefore keen to add more strength to his team as he hopes to challenge for the Premier League title as well as qualify for the Champions League next season.

Jose Mourinho

With the highly anticipated Premier League game between Liverpool and Manchester United getting closer, there have been some kind words coming from both managers ahead of the game.

What is more interesting is the praise from both managers with the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp stating that his Sunday’s foes, United manager is the most successful manager in the World.

The Merseyside club will host the Red Devils at Anfield with Liverpool sitting top in the Premier League table and having 16 points ahead of United who are sixth place on the log.

The United boss has had a very frustrating season so far as he struggled to win as well as the obvious rift he has had with some of the players which affected the results coming from his side but that will not stop Liverpool boss from regarding him as one of the best.

The German boss stated that he will not like to write off his Sunday opponent, noting that they have got a complete and quality team that can pose a surprise in the game.

Klopp added that United have got one of the best goalkeepers with David De Gea, Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford which will make it difficult for him to judge them by their points.

This might not be the case with Liverpool after manager Jurgen Klopp gave the hint that his side might not do business in January for obvious reasons.

The German manager is yet to win any title since his three years in charge at Anfield and he has got a chance to have that this season as he sits top in the Premier League table.

While admitting that much has to be done by his squad for more to be able to maintain the lead, he noted that there will be no additions as he also ruled out the early return of Harry Wilson from his loan spell at Derby.

The German boss stressed that the injured players will not be out for long which means there will not be need as he has got some covers for them.

However, the Reds will face Manchester United on Sunday in the Premier League tie and they hope to win to continue their dominance.

The 28-year-old has become a key player at Manchester United since he joined the three-time European champions from Spanish La Liga giants Atletico Madrid in 2011 in a deal worth £19m.

The Spaniard has made over 300 appearances for Manchester United.

He had just six months left on his current deal before Manchester United activated the extra year clause in the contract to take him till the end of next season.

Manchester United could be faced with a big problem next summer if De Gea continues to turn down new contract offers.

Senior Red Devils officials will need to decide whether to sell him or not next summer if the situation remains the same.

Paris Saint Germain (PSG) and Juventus are possible transfer destinations for him.
