Good night!!! Welcome to the second day of the Champions League. Today the Midtjylland, and what a stage stage to do it: nothing more and nothing less than Anfield versus Liverpool. Klopp’s are still one of the top favorites to get the Orejona, beyond the Van Dijk injury significantly weighs down the team. Even so, on the first day they obtained a very important victory for the classification, at home against Ajax by 0-1. For their part, Midtjylland was beaten at home by 0-4 against Atalanta.
Anything that isn’t a Liverpool win today at Anfield will be a surprise. Even so, a Champions League match at Anfield is always worth watching. Therefore, from now on and until the game ends I’m going to tell you everything that happens in Liverpool.
They beat Sheffield 2-1 in a season in which the Reds are struggling to get off the ground
Without the determination and authority of yesteryear, the LiverpoolHe was successful in visiting Anfield from Sheffield (2-1) thanks to a comeback led by the Brazilian Roberto Firmino and the Portuguese Diogo Jota, who nominated Jurgen Klopp’s team to the top of the Premier.
Nothing is easy now for the champion, who takes out his commitments with more suffering than expected. He beat Chris Wilder’s team by the minimum, penultimate in the table and who has not won any of the six games he has played.
Liverpool was reunited with the victory after the defeat against Aston Villa and the draw with Everton.
The situation was complicated for Redsbefore the opening quarter of an hour when a foul on the edge of Fabinho’s area on Oliver McBurnie was detected by the VAR as a penalty. Norway’s Sander Berge did not miss and overtook the visitors.
Despite harassment and permanent dominance, Liverpool did not draw until shortly before the break. A header from Sadio Mané was repelled by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. Firmino picked up the rebound and brought the ball into the net.
The local victory came after game time. Mané intervened again, who, from the left, sent a measured center to the area that was finished by the Portuguese Diogo Jota with a head.
The victory calms Liverpool, who hunt down their neighbor at the top of the table at the expense of Everton’s duel, which visits Southampton on Sunday and is ahead with 13 units, the same as the Reds, but with better goal difference.
In fact, it is curious that Liverpool are currently the team with the most goals so far this tournament, with 15, but have also received the most, 14 (tied with Fulham in the latter).
For their part, Manchester City got stuck against West Ham United and drew 1-1. While Crystal Palace beat Fulham on the road. In addition, the Manchester United and Chelsea equalized without goals.
Third in the table are Aston Villa, with 12 points, followed by 10 from Leeds United and Crystal Palace. Chelsea is located up to the sixth box, while others are even worse, such as Arsenal (eighth), Tottenham (tenth) or Manchester City, which is located in box 12. United, in addition, is in position 15 with just 7 units.
The official account of the Reds made fun of the entity culé for the elimination by Champions League in Anfield.

Barcelona is in the process of structural renovation, both from the staff and with the coaching staff with the arrival of the Dutch Ronald Koeman. However, the past of the institution in one of the most prestigious international competitions such as the Champions League haunts it to the point that the same clubs that eliminated the culé from the tournament make fun on the networks.
In the edition that had him as champion, Liverpool stood out for having one of the most dangerous attacks in the competition. Salah, Firmino y Mané they were the offensive bulwarks of a team whose brain was the German Jürgen Klopp.
In the semifinals they faced Barcelona and after a first leg in which they fell 3-0 at the Camp Nou, those led by Klopp received the Catalan squad at Anfield where they dispatched with four goals to achieve the feat of qualifying to the final of UCL.
Today, the official UEFA Twitter account invited you to comment on what had been the best assist in the history of the European competition. Liverpool’s Twitter account responded to the slogan by publishing the assistance of Alexander Arnold, from a corner on the right wing, to Origi, who scored the fourth goal, misleading the Barcelona defense.
For their part, the followers of Reds they were in charge of putting gasoline on the fire and they echoed the jeers.
What costs the most money in a transfer market? Probably if we could only give one answer to this question it would be the goal. A striker who smells blood a few meters from the goal is the most valuable. With the closing of the transfer market, there are many teams that saw their intentions frustrated, and that finally were left without being able to sign the forward they needed to be able to aspire to achieve their objectives.
These are the free agents who act in the forward position and who personify the most interesting of the entire agency:
– Mario Mandzukic: the veteran striker, former Juve, is free and ready to embark on a new project
– Danny Welbeck: another free ram after the descent of his Watford.
– Daniel Sturridge: the adventure in Turkey did not go well, what will be the next?
– Alexandre Pato: The Brazilian is also looking for a new team as a free agent
– Oumar Niassé: ex of Everton, forward very fast and mobile.
– Seydou Doumbia: the CSKA striker who was already at Girona in Spain, is now also a free agent.
– Diafra Sakho: profile similar to the previous one, also ex of the Premier, in this case of West Ham.
– Jonathan Soriano: the Red Bull Salzburg scorer and culé youth squad working for a new opportunity in the European elite.
-Yaya Sanogo: a frustrated promise of French football looking for a team.
– Adama Diomandé: without having shown a bad performance in the MLS, an exit to a more European adventure.
The Carabao Cup never leaves anyone indifferent, either by the visits of large first division clubs to small stadiums with the typical english environment of fish & chips, or for the clashes in fields where the beers are thrown with the latest technology of internal filling taps.
Going to the bathroom is important
The celebration of the round of 16 of the league cup began with a main course, no starters. Tottenham y Chelsea faced off in a London derby with old acquaintances on the benches, such as Mourinho y Lampard. The Portuguese defended themselves on their court, waiting for their moment (and taking into account the European game they played two days later), but the moment was Werner. The German scored the blue goal in the 19th minute, although it did not help Chelsea to be calm, as the Spurs woke up in the second half. The curious note left her Dier, who had to go to the bathroom in the middle of the crash, and Mou went for him after one against Chelsea. Lamela got the award for perseverance and equalized the tie, to take it shortly after to penalties. At the maximum penalty, almost all the shots were to the right of the goalkeepers, but it was not decided until the last, when Mount erró, left his club out of competition and made the debut of the new goalkeeper, Mendy, outside bittersweet.
One of those more unequal shocks that usually occur was the Newport County contra el Newcastle. The magpies had the classification in their hand looking at the statistics, but in football it is not everything. Abrahams scored within five minutes for exiles, something not equaled Newcastle until 87 ‘, with Shelvey. Penalties were decided on the sixth shot, due to the Cooper’s ruling and Longstaff’s annotation, for the pass to the magpies quarters.
Two from Manchester and three from Calvert-Lewin
The next match day held a Burnley contra Manchester City. Those of Turf Moor raised a crash leaving the ball to those of Guardiola, as usual, and held up very well thanks to the Peacock-Farrell stops; however, the quality of the cityzens prevailed, and with a Raheem Sterling’s double and Ferran Torres’ scoring debut in the sky blues, they made it to the next round of the tournament.
During the development of the previous round, the Brighton & Hove Albion against the other Manchester, United. Those of Graham Potter did not flatten against those of Solskjaer, and they had sections of dominance, but they did not certify it with shots between the three suits of Dean Henderson. McTominay, meanwhile, opened the scoring on the brink of rest, and Juan Mata and Paul Pogba finish off the gulls options on a rainy night at Amex Stadium.
Another level duel that did not go wrong at that time of dinner was the visit of West Ham to Goodison Park. The hammers were determined to repeat the performance against the Wolves of days ago in the league (4-0), but the toffees they stormed Randolph’s goal from the beginning. The usual at Everton, Calvert-Lewin made it 1-0, and when they were promised very happily, Snodgrass laid the tables thanks to his goal. The local team responded within 10 minutes via Richarlison, Y Calvert-Lewin, not satisfied with a single goal, scored two more to get a hat-trick, take the ball home and have the press fill the headlines with his name the next morning.
Benrahma pipes and Leno stops
The one that would be in the news on Thursday of the cup would be Said Benrahma, who delighted the entire soccer world with a great play, spout included, to scores in his team’s game, the Brentford, contra el Fulham. In addition to this ‘delicatessen’, he added another goal, which, together with that of his partner Marcus Fross, they sent Scott Parker’s men back home, eliminated by a 3-0 with a rival they know from the Premier League promotion playoff final.
Another of the meetings between clubs of different categories (one of the few at this stage of the tournament) was the Aston Villa contra Stoke City. Those of Birmingham monopolized the ball during the clash, in addition to the chances, but those of Stoke were no less despite being in the second division. The Welsh, Sam Vokes scored the only goal of the tie to send Stoke City to the quarterfinals, making it one of only two teams from outside the Premier League to reach these crosses.
The last game reserved us a new face to face between two well known lately. Liverpool and Arsenal repeated days later on the same stage, Anfield, but with different interests. Those of Klopp came out with quite a few changes, and thus give minutes to the less usual, while Arteta put an eleven that could be the headline, except for the loss of Aubameyang, who was not even summoned. The porters gave a recital During the regulatory 90 minutes, both Adrián San Miguel and, especially, Bernd Leno. The German saved the Londoners with seven saves and sent the game to penalties. From eleven meters, no one seemed eager to fail, until Adrián stopped the ball to Elneny. The reds did not take advantage and Origi sent the ball to the hands of Leno. Finally, Wilson missed the launch and, amidst the laughter of Pépé and Maitland-Niles, the gunners secured their place in the quarterfinals final of the Carabao Cup and his streak in cup tournaments.
