Key Midfielder Causes Problem For Jurgen Klopp

Published

on

Jordan Henderson

Liverpool look closest to snatching the Premier League title this season than ever. Just two points behind leaders Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp men remain adamant in their pursuit for a silverware this season.

Klopp wants a healthy squad during the festive period which, a coin if spun well, could spell how well the second half of the season will be for them.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson could ruin Klopp’s plan this period, after going down with injury in international play.

Henderson has been knocked out from the Reds squad after picking up an injury in the games against the United States.

The 29-year-old was trimmed from the England’s UEFA Nations League match against World Cup finalists Croatia on Sunday, after the Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate confirmed earlier that he had suffered a set back.

The Three Lions boss revealed that Henderson has been carrying ‘a bit of an injury’, hence his decision to leave him out of his team sheet against the Blazers.

With games coming thick and fast after the international break, Klopp will be keen on bridging the gap between the Reds and City, and then topple over the Premier League holders before the turn of the year.

Henderson is a key midfielder in Klopp’s centre and losing him to injury could spell problems in their next strings of matches.

Gary Cahill

Arsenal boss Unai Emery is now reported to be paying attention to want-away Chelsea defender Gary Cahill ahead of the winter transfer window which reopens in coming weeks.

The North London boss has admitted the possibility of adding a defender to his side following the injury of Rob Holding as he wishes to have a solution.

The Arsenal team are also believed to be lacking enough quality in the defence when compared to the attack as they have conceded as many goals as they have scored.

This makes it important for the club to have more additions and the boss is ready to take advantage of the availability of the former Bolton star to bolster his defence.

The Chelsea star has gone down the pecking order in the manager Maurizio Sarri team and he is willing to move ahead so as to secure more playing time elsewhere.

The star player is of the opinion that he has some number of years to play before his career runs out which must be well utilized.

However, the North London side stand a good chance knowing that Gary Cahill will fancy a stay in England instead of moving out of the English league where he has got a number of suitors.

Andreas Christensen

Spanish La Liga outfit Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde has reacted to claims that he is the pursuit of English premier League side Chelsea star Andreas Christensen.

Andreas Christensen was linked to Barcelona some few weeks back with the report stating that he is wanted at  Camp Nou.

In his response, manager Ernesto Valverde stated that he is happy with his squad and will rather stick with them until the return of French international Umtiti.

The Chelsea star was a major part of Blues team when former manager Antonio Conte was in charge but the situation changed for him with the coming of the Italian boss Maurizio Sarri.

Andreas Christensen is therefore considering a move away from the Stamford Bridge as he hopes to continue his career elsewhere.

The 22-year-old extended his contract with Chelsea at the beginning of the year until 2022 and there are suggestions that his wish to move on could be blocked because of the high need of the club for him.

Andreas Christensen is believed to have age on his side and could still have his place in the heart of the West London team because of the shorter days of Brazilian international David Luiz at the club.

Eden Hazard

Chelsea star Eden Hazard has made a big claim that his side can still win the Premier League title after their 2-1 win over Brighton on Sunday afternoon.

The West London side started the season on a high but big doubts arose when they saw their first two defeats in the Premier League against North London side Tottenham and Wolves.

The loss of six points has reduced the Blues to fourth position with 37 points in the Premier League table which cast doubts on their ability to contend for the title.

The Belgium star stated that his side can still deliver the title as the season still had a long way to go with a number of games yet to be played.

According to him, the mission of the West London side is to end the season as the top of the table as he explained that they will make efforts to close the gap between his team and the league leaders.

However, the West London side are making efforts to recruit more players in the winter transfer window so as to win more games especially in the second half of the season which starts in the new year.

Andreas Christensen

It has been speculated that Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona are in the race to have the signature of Andreas Christensen from Chelsea in the winter transfer window.

The 22-year-old is reported to be pushing a move away from the club having gone down the pecking order at the West London side under manager Maurizio Sarri.

Andreas Christensen has had just one Premier League appearance under his belt which was a direct opposite of the situation for him under former manager Antonio Conte.

The report, therefore, alerted a number of clubs who immediately indicated interests in having his signature with the Spanish side well mentioned.

However, the West London side are reported to be preparing a new and bumper offer for the star player so as to keep him off suitors and convince him to stay at the club.

Although, the Blues will have to do more in convincing the star player to stay knowing that he is unhappy sitting on the bench as it will hamper on his development as a young player.

Meanwhile, reports have it that Barcelona boss Ernesto Valverde dismissed the claim of his side interested in the star defender as he claims he will make do of what he has in the team.
