Virgil van Dijk deal isn't enough to rescue Liverpool shambles - Jamie Carragher

Virgil van Dijk deal isn't enough to rescue Liverpool shambles - Jamie Carragher

As Neville, Carragher and Cates discussed analysis with the Arsenal manager, the former Liverpool defender appeared to call Wenger "an arse" and Twitter picked up on the gaffe.

'Why Firmino is the central man I will never know, he should be blocking him (Okaka) but no one does in the most unsafe position in the six-yard box.

"So you've then had a pre-season and nothing's changing".

Following Arsenal's 4-3 victory over Leicester City, however, Liverpool legend Carragher was the centre of attention after comments he made to Arsenal's 67-year-old manager. What have they been working on?'

That is the verdict of high-profile pundit Jamie Redknapp as he named Van Dijk in a Mail column as one of his 10 players to watch during the 2017-18 Premier League campaign. One player's not going to change that'.

"Chelsea and Liverpool are in the hunt for him and while I think he'll choose Anfield, I can't wait to see where he goes".

China says willing to pay the price for new North Korea sanctions
As announced by North Korea , the planned path of the missiles would cross some of the world's busiest sea and air traffic routes. But residents are increasingly anxious over Washington's escalating war of words with North Korea .

"If you're a centre-back exposed there all the time..." But Redknapp said a defender of Van Dijk's calibre, would instantly improve the team's performance at set-pieces, as he is a "leader".

'If you want to challenge for the Premier League then you need to concede 30 or 35 goals, so they need to take 15 goals away.

You think, 'what are your weaknesses?' - set-pieces, getting done on the counter-attack. They have been for a long time'.

Although Carragher's innocent mistake was laughed up by an terrible lot of people on social media, it's safe to say it is the first time that the adenoids, a body part with a similar function the the tonsils, have ever been mentioned after a football match.

Liverpool fell behind when Stefano Okaka netted an early opener, but Sadio Mane levelled with a cool finish. He shakes off Doucoure, good one-two with Moreno and a lovely over Can and it's reminiscent of Thierry Henry in the way he opens his body and bends his shot with his right foot to give the keeper no chance.
