Alisson cleverly defended Watkins, but Liverpool he could not avert the danger. In the end, Digne’s cross sent a shot towards the goal by Douglas Luiz on the further post. Alisson made an unconvincing defense and Luiz – once from Manchester City – swallowed the bounced ball from a few yards away.
Tsimikas, Matip and Watkins were well on the floor when the goal passed, but I think they just stumbled on each other. Anyway, the goal stands!
The villa takes the lead in the third minute!
2 min Liverpool started with Mane ahead, Jota on the left and Diaz on the right. It’s a bit of a surprise given Diaz’s recent form on the left.
1 minute Peep peep! Liverpoolin their almost white guest strip, they strike from right to left.
The players are coming out. This is a game you must get Liverpoolideal game to win three or four.
“Penny for thinking about Harry Kane tonight,” says David Wall. “On another topic, they discussed on the radio whether City had ever signed someone with Haaland status before. Doesn’t anyone remember when they signed Robinho? Sure, he might have flattered him to cheat a little in a few years before, but he was still incredibly prominent. He was expected to be a big deal just a few years ago. In addition, I expect Haaland to be pretty clear about which club to join, and you might think it will go better than Robinho’s move. “
All very fair points. You could also use the Yaya Toure, although Haaland is more desirable. We should patent the Statusometer for transmissions like this, pull data right out of our well, never mind.
Reflections before the match Jurgen Klopp, Esq.
“My son always talks to me that every season you get ‘six goals, six assists’ from Coutinho, ‘no more, no less’, says Gary Naylor. “I haven’t checked his balance to pay for 2021-22, but if everyone comes tonight, I love Villa 7-2. (All right, 2-1). ”
“As for your answer to Peter Ohu,” begins Harriet Osborn. “I’m not sure I like the suggestion that one of The Bench will get a season finale soon, or with your Sean Bean cast! Although Pegg as Kelleher and Statham as Milner could work. ”
Oh, I didn’t talk specifically about that Liverpool subs. I was just daydreaming about a movie called The Bench, ideally with Alan Ford’s enigmatic voice. (Note: the clip contains language)
“Can I just say I’m against it? that my potential monthly financial contribution to the Guardian is potentially used to potentially fund bogus quarrels between top managers who clearly respect each other and in no way “accuse” others of apologizing, ”says Ian Copestake. “Why does the rhetoric for these stories have to be increased to levels of non-existent conflict? But I’m not accusing you, Bobby Robster. I, in the speech of our time, just say. “
What do you think of this new age of passive-aggressive quarrels between managers? Do you like them, Ian? are you are you are I think my favorite days were when Wenger and Ferguson openly called each other effers.
Anyway, enough of Erling Haaland. We are half an hour away Aston Villa v Liverpool, the last in an endless series of huge games for Liverpool.
‘As a fan of the City’ no ‘, the only thing I have to stick to is the Haaland injury record this season, ”says Brendan Large. “He missed several games and that could limit him to only 40 goals in the PL * baptize fingers *. But as a football fan I am very curious to see if he can turn them into an even bigger machine to win. It’s a scary prospect, but I’m also looking forward to next season. “
And here, it’s going to be a fascinating story no matter what happens. He will certainly score millions, but I guess he will ultimately be judged based on the quality of his goals (in this case time and importance), not quantity. Shall we call him a bully now and get it over with?
‘Good luck with that’ department
1978-79 in 1987-88 in 2021-22
“Will Haaland break the mold for BVB players who go abroad with a great reputation? ” says Mel Lynam. “The only real success for their players is when they go to Bayern.”
It’s a bit harsh towards people like Aubameyang and Gundogan, but it’s still a very good point. Haaland still feels like another beast.
“That Liverpool the bench is very impressive, ” says Peter Oh. “These guys could put on brass boxes and hit baseball bats in the palms of their hands while they wait their turn. I think you’re going to have to write this in capital B. Not just a bench. Bench.”
Bench: Starring Jason Statham and Sean Bean, with a surprisingly threatening turn by Simon Pegg.
Who has an alibi for Saturday night?
“I hope Haaland will there will be more Benteke / Lukaku / Carroll signatures than Toshack for all Pep’s little Keegans! ” cries Ian Copestake. “But I live in hope and anticipation, not as I currently do in Koreatown, LA.”
I think there is an element of risk, as with all signatures, I guess. We know Haaland will turn 3-0 into 12-0 in the match Premier League, but all that really matters is whether it will turn 5-6 into 7-6 in Europe. I doubt he will, but that is not certain.
“This will be the last race for the Premier League title the next five years? “writes Rob Hisnay.” I say that because, with Manchester City signing Erling Haaland, it doesn’t look good for competitiveness Premier League. ”
Folk said the same when Manchester United signed Juan Sebastian Veron and Ruud Van Nistelrooy in 2001, and when Chelsea bought Ballack and Andriy Shevchenko in 2006. Both teams won the title only once in the next five years. I mean, Haaland could score 50 goals by November, but I’m open for now, especially with Jurgen Klopp.
Steven Gerrard made two changes to Aston Villa’s win at Burnley on Saturday. The marvelous Nakamba and Philippe Coutinho replace Calum Chambers and Emi Buendi.
Jurgen Klopp is resting a number of players ahead of the FA Cup final against Chelsea on Saturday. There are a total of five changes from a 1-1 draw with the Spurs over the weekend. Joel Matip, Kostas Tsimikas, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and Diogo Jota are coming to the heavyweight quintet of Ibrahim Konate, Andy Robertson (who is not among the deputies), Thiago Alcantara, Jordan Henderson and Mo Salah.
Aston Villa (4-D-2) Martinez; Cash, Konsa, Mings, Digne; Nakamba; McGinn, Douglas Louise; Coutinho; Watkins, Ings.

Substitutions: Kelleher, Konate, Thiago, Milner, Firmino, Salah, Henderson, Gomez, Origi.
Referee Jon Moss.
Of all the gin joints. The year is 2022, Liverpool is included in the race for the title – and Steven Gerrard is the central figure. The decision on the computer and the managerial carousel, Gerrard’s Aston Villa side plays Liverpool tonight and Manchester City at the Etihad on the last day of the season. He could help Liverpool win the title, or he could finish them off in the next few hours.
If Liverpool throw points tonight, it will be everywhere except tweeting. As they have taken 41 points in their last 15 league games, even stupid money is on their win at Villa Park. But there is no break for the wicked: the more successful you are, the more games you have, and this is Liverpool’s 12th game in 39 days since the last international break.
One interpretation of their draw with the Spurs on Saturday is that they showed signs of fatigue, mentally and not physically, although it is actually too early to draw such a conclusion. No one should be surprised if hunt Villa outside the park tonight.
Villa have won the last two games though, breaking a poor run of form, and have players who can hurt Liverpool: Ollie Watkins, Danny Ings and an artist formerly called The Little Magician.
Like Gerrard, Philippe Coutinho will experience mixed emotions tonight.
Start the game 8 p.m.
