Cup game off, CB bid rejected & Gerrard wants Coutinho – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool face a very busy week of organisation and trying to get the training ground open again – but nothing will be happening on the pitch…yet.


League Cup semi-final rearranged – FA Cup in doubt

It’s official – there’s no game to look forward to on Thursday night. Eventually, the EFL have had to accept Liverpool’s request to have the match postponed, with assistant boss Pepijn Lijnders the latest to test positive in addition to “significant” numbers of players.

Both club and competition made a statement after the confirmation that the game was off – and we’ll now play the first leg at home and the return a week later in the rearranged schedule.

There’s no guarantee that our FA Cup game at the weekend will go ahead yet, but the U18s fixture against Burnley in the FA Youth Cup is off – to protect them in case they are needed for the first-team‘s Shrewsbury match.

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has used up the last of his 34 chances at super-strict Arsenal and they are now willing to listen to offers for him
  • Lucas Digne is rated at £30m by Everton but it’s only Italian sides keen to sign him at the moment, so that’ll be an 18-month loan with an option to think about potentially maybe buying him for a reduced fee while they still pay his wages instead, then
  • Gabriel Barbosa is “open” to joining Newcastle and seriously, we’d love to see Eddie Howe try and deal with him when he decides he’s had enough of the shambles and kicks off massively. Ever see your school’s supply teacher try and quietly deal with the naughty kid and fail completely? Yeah, that
