perth_map

Jack Wilshere , Theo Walcott, Alex Iwobi and Olivier Giroud were all on the bench for the trip to Goodison Park, and Wenger insists it is a "luxury" to have such available fire-power though it also causes a selection dilemma.

Philippe Coutinho says Liverpool did not follow Jurgen Klopp's instructions against Tottenham

perth_map

The solution may lie in concentrating more, but the problem with expecting certain qualities from players that have never shown the requisite consistency and ability to be part of a long-term solution might be unreasonable. As of January, Coutinho still has four more years on the new £150,000-a-week deal he signed last season, so why would Liverpool settle for anything under the £114 million that was Barca's third bid last summer? Then the next one was after 12 or 13 minutes. Read More »
