Guardiola er enig, og selvom der kan være mange holdninger dertil, så vejer ord fra Pep's mund nu ganske tungt for mig:

– Vi konkurrerer mot det beste Liverpool-laget noensinne

Svulstig påstand fra Pep Guardiola etter Manchester Citys seier over Tottenham.
20.04.2019 kl 18:35 Einar Kvande EinarKvande

Manchester City tok tilbake tabelltoppen da de slo Tottenham 1-0 på Etihad i dag. Etter kampen snakket City-manager Pep Guardiola om titteljakten, der Liverpool er det eneste laget som holder følge med hans lyseblå disipler.
City har 86 poeng og Liverpool 85 poeng med fire kamper igjen å spille. Liverpool gjester som kjent Cardiff i morgen.
Liverpool, som har vært ligamestere 18 ganger, har aldri tidligere hatt flere poeng på dette stadiet av sesongen.

– Dette var veldig viktig. Alle kan tape mot alle i denne ligaen, uttalte Pep Guardiola etter 1-0 seieren over Tottenham.

– Vi har ikke råd til å avgi poeng

– Det var viktig med tanke på kampen om ligatittelen. Vi har ikke råd til å avgi poeng. Vi hadde tapt Premier League-tittelen om vi hadde tapt i dag.

– Etter at vi sanket 100 poeng forrige sesong, kjemper vi nå med det beste Liverpool-laget noen gang, og et av de beste lagene jeg har spilt mot offfensivt. Så at vi fortsatt er med i kampen, uten at vi har hatt en av våre beste spillere involvert i store deler av sesongen (Kevin De Bruyne), er bemerkelsesverdig, la City-manageren til.

– Selvsagt ønsker vi å vinne ligaen, men jeg vil ikke klage om vi til slutt ikke klarer det, for jeg vil gi masse honnør til Liverpool.

Pep er fuld af mundlort. Smider de PL har de tabt til det bedste Liverpool hold nogensinde og er dermed undskyldt.
Vinder de PL er de pisse seje da de så har vundet den hårdeste PL ever.
Vi skal bare vinde, slut!

Yes, det bliver jo lidt en helgardering, men Klopp udviser jo samme respekt den anden vej, og jeg synes egentlig, at de opfører sig som gentlemen, og denne rekordsæson giver dem jo ret et meget langt stykke henad vejen, da nr. 2 også vil have spillet en meget flot sæson.

Vi skal desværre lægge vores lid til Man Utd på onsdag.
Godt nok har de kun tabt én hjemmekamp i PL i denne sæson, men det de viste mod Everton ude
i dag, var skræmmende dårligt.
Håber at de stiller defensivt op med en hurtig frontkæde af Rashford, Lingard og Martial så de kan
kører kontra på City.
Hvis City vinder den kamp, så er vores chancer vel reduceret til under 10%. Den eneste tilbage som
måske (Et stort måske) kan give lidt modstand, er Leicester som har gjort det ganske godt mod de
store hold i denne sæson. Men City på udebane er ikke en nem opgave.

Leicester er bestemt et giftigt hold, og de snuppede jo 1 point på Anfield. Vi skal heller ikke glemme denne her:

Don’t worry Liverpool, every season Burnley have been in the PL, we’ve beaten the reigning champions! We’ve got this:

2009/10 Burnley 1 - Man Utd 0
2014/15 Burnley 1 - Man City 0
2016/17 Burnley 1 - Leicester 0
2017/18 Chelsea 2 - Burnley 3
2018/19 Burnley V Man City

Brighton kan iøvrigt risikere at skulle spille for deres overlevelse på hjemmebane i sidste runde, og hvis det er tilfældet, så bliver det ikke en walk over. Det vil det til gengæld nok være, hvis de har klaret frisag, selvom de vel gerne vil slutte sæsonen af på bedste manér foran egne fans ?

Det kunne måske være en idé at sluse Gomez tilbage på holdet via højre back'en, da Trent ligner en spiller, der kan bruge et hvil, og måske skal Gomez nappe PL kampene og Trent CL kampene ?

Jurgen Klopp’s big decision with Trent Alexander-Arnold – and how Joe Gomez can solve it

Jack Lusby
@jacklusby_

Despite his consistency in the final third, Trent Alexander-Arnold has shown signs of fatigue of late that should prompt Joe Gomez‘s return for Liverpool.

In his past five games, the Reds’ No. 66 has laid on four goals, bringing his tally for the campaign up to 10 and placing him just behind Andy Robertson (11) and Mo Salah (12) in the creative stakes.

Alexander-Arnold is among the nominees for the PFA Young Player of the Year award, and is undoubtedly one of Jurgen Klopp‘s key players.

In fact, only six outfielders have clocked more minutes for Liverpool this season than Alexander-Arnold (2,940), who is behind Gini Wijnaldum (3,294), Roberto Firmino (3,336), Robertson (3,738), Sadio Mane (3,769), Salah (3,909) and Virgil van Dijk (3,925).

Due to Gomez’s fractured leg, which kept him out for four months, Alexander-Arnold has played more than double the amount of minutes as his fellow defender (1,480).

But Klopp’s faith in the 20-year-old can be considered both a blessing and a curse, as in recent games he has seemingly struggled with the pace.

This was evident as he was frequently caught out by Cardiff’s Nathaniel Mendez-Laing—formerly of Peterborough, Portsmouth, Shrewsbury, Cambridge and Rochdale—in Liverpool’s 2-0 win in south Wales.

In eight of Alexander-Arnold’s last 10 appearances, the opposition have focused the highest proportion of their attacks down his flank: Burnley (51%), Bayern (54%), Fulham (61%), Tottenham (48%), Southampton (47%), Porto (42%), Chelsea (52%) and Cardiff (53%).

This could be due to managers highlighting the youngster as a potential weak link in Klopp’s defence, or perhaps simply aiming to avoid Van Dijk.

But with Liverpool in the midst of the most important stretch of the season and facing a varied group of fixtures, it does pose the question of whether Alexander-Arnold would benefit from a brief rest.

With a possible six games left to play, Alexander-Arnold has already played almost 300 more minutes than last season’s total (2,654).

This could therefore hypothetically rise by 540 more if the Reds reach the Champions League final.

At 20, this is a vast amount of football to be playing, particularly in such a high-intensity system which places such emphasis on the full-backs both in defence and attack.

Only one player aged 20 or under has played more minutes than Alexander-Arnold in the Premier League (2,199), that being Declan Rice (2,836), and only nine have in Europe’s top five leagues.

Considering he has also missed five games due to foot and knee injuries suffered in December and January, as well as travelling and playing once for England at the World Cup, this has been a very demanding season.

Alexander-Arnold even returned early from his summer break to join Liverpool’s pre-season, and the effects of a busy campaign were possibly evident as he was forced to pull out of Three Lions duty in March with a back complaint.

He had already played through the pain in the 3-1 win at Bayern Munich, but Klopp explained that there was “no other alternative” to him and Xherdan Shaqiri missing the international break.

It is clearly an issue the manager is aware of, and this is perhaps why—after a strange decision to keep him on despite picking up a knock in the warmup at Brighton in January—he eased Alexander-Arnold back on his return in February.

Regardless, with James Milner a hit-and-miss alternative, Klopp has reverted to a heavy reliance on the Scouser, and this has resulted in him playing the equivalent of four full games or more in both March and, so far, April.

In context of the season as a whole, Alexander-Arnold has played at least 70 percent of his available minutes in five out of nine months so far, and never below 50 percent despite his injuries:

Klopp acknowledged this in November after substituting him at half-time in the 2-0 loss at Red Star—still only the third time he has been brought off before the last five minutes of a game in 2018/19.

The manager explained that he “has played constantly” after “really not a lot” of time off over the summer, and added that “it won’t be the first time or the last time in his life that everything isn’t 100 percent.”

It can be argued that, though his creativity has been useful, this is another one of those times.

Thankfully, Klopp is now able to call upon the player who replaced Alexander-Arnold at half-time in Belgrade once again, with Gomez firmly back in the fold.

After such a lengthy layoff, Gomez has been treated carefully on his return, with a long period of reintegration at Melwood, an hour for the U23s at Leicester and two substitute appearances in a week amounting to 28 minutes.

Before his first senior outing since December, in the away clash with Porto, Klopp described Gomez as “absolutely” ready.

And crucially, he continued to explain that the 21-year-old was to be considered “an option” at right-back, despite his excellent performances at centre-back earlier in the season.

The strong form and consistent fitness of Joel Matip alongside Van Dijk has made Gomez’s route back into the lineup in his natural role more difficult, but has certainly made Liverpool’s run-in more comfortable.

There is a clear school of thought to suggest that easing a young player back in at centre-back in such a crucial stage, after four months out, is too big a risk.

Instead, a return to alternating duties with Alexander-Arnold at right-back is the best and most sensible course of action for Gomez, before he can switch back in the summer.


Last season saw the pair trade places between bench and starting, both playing a similar number of minutes (Alexander-Arnold, 2,654; Gomez, 2,463) and therefore remaining fresh and allowing Klopp to tailor his side to specific challenges.

This should restart with Gomez against Huddersfield on Friday night, particularly given the No. 12’s size advantage, and there is a possibility he could be retained for the trip to Barcelona the following Wednesday.

Or, Klopp could opt to rotate them fixture by fixture, with the aerially superior Gomez preferred against three of the league’s top five sides in terms of long passes per game: Huddersfield (70), Newcastle (71) and Wolves (69).

Either way the benefits of Gomez’s return are clear, and could even be seen as timely for Liverpool, with Alexander-Arnold ready for a rest.
