The Premier League market is one of the most popular betting heats of any new campaign in the world of football and as the 2019/20 season approaches, the predictions have started trickling through as to who the next top scorer will be.

The most anticipated match of the season thus far is now in the books, with Liverpool having salvaged a point at Stamford Bridge. Reds supporters will be breathing a sigh of relief, as a loss to Chelsea would have represented a fairly early setback, and now Liverpool remains tied with Manchester City atop the league tables.

And what was really remarkable about the goal – an 89th minute strike from the red-hot Daniel Sturridge – was that he looked almost nonchalant about it.

When teams play in the knockout stages of the Champions League, there are two things that are particularly important, the first one is to take a healthy lead in the first leg more or if you are playing at home and the second one is to avoid conceding the away goal. Liverpool passed these two tests in the first leg winning by a 3 goal margin and avoiding to concede an away goal. Though it’s a comfortable lead, the calibre of the side Liverpool are going to meet in the second leg suggests there is still more work to be done. Continue reading
Jamie Carragher feels Mohamed Salah has been the signing of the 2017 summer transfer window following an impressive start to his Liverpool career. The Egypt international joined the Reds from AS Roma for a club-record fee in June, and he has since contributed 10 goals in just 16 appearances for the Merseyside club.
Writing in his column in The Telegraph, Carragher revealed that Salah has been the season’s standout signing after having comfortably adapted to the right-wing position.
