LIVE: Liverpool v Fulham

Premier League

Wednesday 03 May 2023 – 8:00 pm


Coming Soon

Liverpool face their second home game in four days when they welcome Fulham tonight to Anfield.

The reds have managed to claw their way into 5th place and will be hoping to strengthen that position this evening.

Fulham are having a middle-table season and currently sit in 10th position. European qualification looks beyond their capabilities this season but they are currently winning the battle in terms of league position over their local rivals Chelsea.

The reds have managed to put four wins together extending an unbeaten stretch to six games now in the English top flight.

But there have been some nervy moments along the way with two narrow wins against West Ham and Spurs in the last week.

Will another London club provide another banana skin for the reds?

Sam Allardyce: ‘I’m just as good as Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp, Mikel Arteta’

Sam Allardyce compares himself to Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta and believes ‘there is nobody ahead of him in football terms’ following his appointment as Leeds United head coach.

Sam Allardyce has compared himself to Pep Guardiola, Jurgen Klopp and Mikel Arteta and believes ‘there is nobody ahead of him in football terms’ following his appointment as Leeds United head coach.

The 68-year-old was officially unveiled as Leeds’ new head coach on Wednesday morning, with the Whites announcing at the same time the dismissal of Javi Gracia after just two-and-a-half months in charge.

Gracia lost seven of his 12 Premier League games in charge of the West Yorkshire outfit, who sit 17th in the table and are hovering just above the relegation zone on goal difference.

Allardyce has been out of work since the end of the 2020-21 campaign when his West Bromwich Albion side were condemned to relegation from the Premier League – the first top-flight demotion of his managerial career.

The former England manager has just four games to save Leeds from slipping into the bottom three and will begin his reign with a tricky trip to the Etihad Stadium to face reigning Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday.

Allardyce, whose last game in management was for West Brom against Leeds at Elland Road, has admitted that he was “shocked” to learn of interest from the Whites at such a late stage in the season, but he is relishing the “big opportunity” to try and steer them away from danger.

Speaking at a press conference about his appointment on Wednesday afternoon, Allardyce said: “It was a shock because this time of the season and there are many managers who had changed hands, the most in the history of the Premier League, I thought it was all over for this season.

“It was only a couple of minutes before I said yes. Because of the situation, I had to rush through the process quickly so I could be here for at least a reasonable lead into Manchester City.

“To try and save this club and keep it in the Premier League is a big responsibility but one I want to take because of who Leeds are.”

Allardyce, who has managed over 500 Premier League games and 13 different teams across his 29-year managerial career, believes he has a greater understanding of the game compared to the likes of Man City’s Pep Guardiola – who he will lock horns with on Saturday – Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp and Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta.

“Leeds have always known where I am, but it has never materialised until now,” said Allardyce. “I might be 68 and look old and antiquated but there’s nobody ahead of me in football terms. Not Pep, not Klopp, not Arteta. It’s all there with me. They do what they do and I do what I do.

“In terms of knowledge, I am not saying I’m better than them but I’m certainly just as good as they are.”

Allardyce, who will be accompanied by Karl Robinson and Robbie Keane as part of his backroom staff, is hoping to cause a seismic upset at the Etihad on Saturday and has outlined how many points he believes are required for Leeds to avoid the drop.

“[Taking the Leeds job is] the biggest challenge [of my career] because of the shortness left,” said Allardyce. “We need points to pick up because of the fixtures. It’s a big challenge (against Man City), the players and I have to take on.

“We will try to go to Man City and do our best to get a result. I can only wait to see what the reaction is once we kick off. There is not a problem with Leeds in possession, but there is a massive problem off it. If they want to stay up, they have to stop conceding. We have to cope out of possession.

“If we are to stay up, then you have to create a shock in the Premier League. Hopefully we can shock a few people by getting the results we need to stay up. I hope we can find six points in four. That would be a really good achievement.”

After facing Man City, Allardyce will prepare for his first home game as Leeds boss against Newcastle United, before taking on West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur in their final two games of the season.


Spurs’ Richarlison breaks his silence after those celebrations against Liverpool

Richarlison is understandably relieved after opening his account in the Premier League for Tottenham, with the forward posting a picture of him celebrating with the away fans at Anfield.

The campaign has been an extremely frustrating one for Richarlison, who has had to deal with multiple injury issues and struggled at times to get regular starts under his belt.

When he has been handed starts, the 25-year-old has often been played out of position, which is why it might not be completely fair to criticise him harshly for his poor goal output.

However, even considering all these factors, Richarlison would have expected to find the back of the net more often and the relief was palpable when he finally opened his account for the Lilywhites in the Premier League against Liverpool on Sunday.

The former Everton man took his shirt off and celebrated in front of an ecstatic away crow while being mobbed by his teammates.

Unfortunately, for Spurs and Richarlison, Tottenham threw away a point late in the game as they gifted a stoppage-time winner to Diogo Jota.

Here’s what the Brazilian posted on Instagram following his goal:

Spurs Web Opinion

Richarlison is fully deserving of that goal as he has been quite unlucky not to find the back of the net over recent months, having come really close on occasions and even having had a couple of goals chopped off for offside.

Hopefully, this strike would take the pressure off the 25-year-old and open the floodgates for him in front of goal.
