Links with Porto winger & Klopp on injuries ahead of Arsenal – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are finally back in action tomorrow! Arsenal are on their way and Anfield is ready for another big game – and there’s a midweek opponent to look out for too.


Porto star on the radar?

Champions League midweek don’t forget – we’re up against Porto. According to media outlets in their corner of the world, we’ll be taking a really close look at Luis Diaz while we play.

The Colombian winger starred at the Copa America and has been free-scoring this term, and has impressed in European action this term too.

An €80m release clause obviously isn’t going to cut it, but Liverpool are mentioned by several sites and reports as a team seriously interested. His agent said such talk is “normal” but wouldn’t confirm any January deal was on the way.

Keep a close eye – he might be out to impress!

  • Kevin de Bruyne has tested positive for Covid and is out of City’s weekend game against Everton, so it might only be three or four-nil now instead of five
  • Zinedine Zidane won’t be heading to United as the club deny they are in talks with him. Of course, that would mean planning, competence, someone carrying the can for a decision and binning Hero of 99 Ole At The Wheel, so obviously they’re not in talks
