Liverpool escapes loss of points, title battle with City to be decided on the final day NOW

Published

on

Liverpool have taken great pains to prevent Manchester City from (unofficially) calling themselves champions on Tuesday evening. The team of manager Jürgen Klopp recovered from a deficit (1-2 win) at Southampton, so that the exciting title battle in the Premier League will be decided in the last round on Sunday.

Nathan Redmond surprisingly gave Southampton the lead after thirteen minutes in St. Mary’s Stadium, giving Manchester City the virtual title. Fifteen minutes later Takumi Minamino equalized and Joël Matip ensured that Liverpool can still hope in the second half.

The gap between leaders Manchester City and Liverpool now consists of one point. The team of manager Pep Guardiola will receive Aston Villa, the current number fourteen in the Premier League, on Sunday. Liverpool close the season with a home game against number eight Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Due to the narrow victory at Southampton, Liverpool still has a chance at the so-called quadruple. Klopp’s team have already won the League Cup and FA Cup this season and Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the Champions League final next Saturday.

Liverpool recover from mediocre initial phase

Three days after the FA Cup final won against Chelsea (on penalties), Klopp was forced to leave several permanent players out of the selection against Southampton. Virgil van Dijk and Mohamed Salah were not fit enough and Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane also did not play at St Mary’s Stadium.

In the early stages, the battered Liverpool was just a shadow of the team that so often impressed this season and quickly fell behind. After a good intervention by defender Lyanco, Redmond was able to break out on the left. He was given plenty of time and space to dribble inside and shot through James Milner’s leg into the far corner.

Except for a disallowed header by Roberto Firmino, Liverpool had a lot of trouble getting through Southampton’s defense before half-time. The equalizer in the 27th minute came fairly out of nowhere. Diogo Jota chested the ball for Minamino, who shot flawlessly.

That goal gave Liverpool the necessary confidence, as Southampton was then completely pushed back into their own half. In the 67th minute, the visitors received a wage for their work. Matip beautifully headed in from a corner and ensured that Liverpool can still hope for the twentieth national title on Sunday.

Ajax attacker Danilo seems to make a spicy transfer to Feyenoord | NOW

Published

on

Ajax striker Danilo is reportedly about to make a transfer to arch-rival Feyenoord. According to the AD and VI the 23-year-old Brazilian will soon sign a four-year contract in De Kuip.

Danilo’s switch is the reverse route that Steven Berghuis took a year ago. The attacker made the switch from Feyenoord to Ajax in the summer of 2021, after which he was threatened for months.

With the arrival of Danilo, Feyenoord is already anticipating the possible departure of a number of attackers. Bryan Linssen is associated with a transfer to the Japanese Urawa Red Diamonds and the question is whether the striker Cyriel Dessers rented from KRC Genk can be definitively taken over.

Danilo, whose contract with Ajax expires at the end of next month, had been sidetracked in Amsterdam this season. The Brazilian scored two goals for the champion in thirteen Eredivisie matches. Behind Sébastien Haller and Brian Brobbey, he was the third choice of the coach Erik ten Hag who has now left for Manchester United.

Ajax striker Danilo will most likely make the spicy switch to Feyenoord in the summer.

Danilo could never convince at Ajax

Danilo was in his fifth season at Ajax. He was acquired in 2017 for about 2 million euros from the Brazilian Santos. In Amsterdam, however, he could never fully convince.

Last season he was rented out to FC Twente, where he was a fixed value. Danilo played 34 official games for the Tukkers and was good for 17 goals and five assists.

Kenneth Vermeer was the last Ajax player to make the spicy switch to Feyenoord in 2014. Angelos Charisteas (2006), John van Loen (1993) and Johan Cruijff (1983) preceded him, among others.
