Liverpool cut down Blades: Mo Salah powers Jurgen Klopp’s men 13 points clear as they go one year undefeated


data-js=”article-body” data-insert-mobile-adslot>

here was a fine performance from Jordan Henderson in midfield, and a goal and an assist for Salah who might have had a first half hat-trick were it not for the saves of Dean Henderson, the Sheffield United on-loan goalkeeper. The away side played with two strikers and sent on two fresh substitutes in attack after the second goal but as Wilder would later say, they never truly laid a glove on Liverpool save for a couple of first-half shots from distance.

When Oli McBurnie, one of those substitutes, missed a back-post chance in the 87th minute it was clear that this was not his team’s night. As with the Manchester City title-winning teams of the two previous seasons, it is the control that this Klopp team exerts over the course of 90-plus minutes that breaks opposition teams. They squeeze the hope out of them.

Liverpool once again lead the table with a game in hand by 13 points from Leicester City in second place and 14 from Manchester City who are back in third. Their lead is now so great that they can afford to squander a few here and there, although with the Arsenal record of 49 unbeaten in sight one can only imagine that they will be taking nothing for granted.

Wilder had decided that his team spend part of their morning doing a warm-up on Stanley Park, the old Victorian grounds that join Goodison Park to the north and Anfield in the south. He comidfielder Pablo Fornals admits his first Premier League game was very hard.The summer signing from Villarreal made his first start for the club in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Brighton.“This is all new for me,” he told West Ham TV. “It is a new leaguld laugh about it later, the “lack of pooper-scoopers” and the “Scouse wit” directed at his players from their fellow park-users. He had intended it, with Anfield’s new main stand looming behind them, as a source of inspiration, but wondered if it might have had the opposite effect.

here was little jeopardy for Liverpool in possession and they had lots of it, the needle staying at more than 70 per cent for the whole game. Salah struck his goal with a run across the away area, connecting perfectly with Andy Robertson’s cross from the left and turning the ball through the legs of Henderson. The problem had come when George Baldock lost his footing as he attempted to clear Virgil van Dijk’s ball from deep and Robertson was let in down the flank, although the quality of cross and finish was still very high.

In the second half Salah hit the post on the hour with a cross that everyone else left. Then four minutes later Liverpool worked it from Alisson quickly all the way up the left wing via Robertson, Mane and Salah. The final ball to Mane allowed him space to shoot and when Henderson saved the first effort, the Liverpool striker had time to take a beat and then lash the rebound into the gbout the new system that manager Mikel Arteta is trying to implement.The Gunners were happy to pick up their first win of the Arteta era against Manchester United on New Year’s Day.They played a high intensity game that was rarely seen in the last feoal.

There was a Premier League debut for Harvey Elliott in the very final minutes and he will surely be one of those in line for a start againthe Women’s World Cup. We have more from New Zealand women’s national team head coach Tom Sermanni, who this reporter interviewed in Grenoble after their Group E match against Canada, in which they lost 2-0. He talked specifically about improving thest Everton in the FA Cup as Klopp conserves his resources. He cannot afford to play anything like his full-strength side on Sunday but he will also presume that Carlo Ancelotti will see it as a chance to secure a famous win. As for Wilder, he said that there would be 11 new faces in the Sheffield United team that plays non-league AFC Fylde. “I’ll apologise now” he said, at the end of what had been a very long evening.

erby manager is expected to field him in a midfield role when he plays against Barnsley tonight.

In his programme notes, Rooney said: “The manager and the rest of the staff have been great with me.

“I’m training with the players and then having a bit of input with the manager and coaches off the pitch as well.

“The manager has been great in terms of helping me get involved in the coaching side as well. I will go into meetings with the manager and staff and I have given my opinions on things.”

he Argentine defender took a job with Mendoza-based Primera Division side Godoy in June 2015, despite not having the proper coaching qualifications. He was sacked in September after two draws, two wins and six defeats. Resigned after achieving promotion with Argentinos Juniors. Remains at Velez Sarsfield. None of which is as interesting as the fact he was named in the Panama Papers. 

29. Viv Anderson 

Managed: Barnsley

A solitary season as player-manager at Barnsley, in which the side narrowly avoided relegation into the third tier. Went on to assist Bryan Robson at Middlesbrough, but has never returned to management.

28. Neil Webb 

Managed: Weymouth, Reading Town

Midfielder won the FA Cup with United in 1990. Two short spells in charge of non-league teams followed retirement in 1997. Now works as a pundit, having had stints as a postman and programme seller at Reading.

27. Pat McGibbon 

Managed: Lurgan Celtic, Newry, Portadown

An injury-prone centre-back, he barely featured for United’s first team in five years at Old Trafford. Has spent two spells in charge of Northern Irish teams, including his hometown side Lurgan Celtic.

26. Paul Parker 

Managed: Chelmsford, Welling

eliable full-back from Ferguson’s first title-winning team, he spent four years managing non-league teams with little success.

25. Clayton Blackmore 

anaged: Bangor, Porthmadog

hort spells in charge of two Welsh clubs. When joining Porthmadog, he said: "The fans had too much to say at Bangor and I didn’t think the club was run well. I’m glad I’m not involved in that again. It’s not as ruthless at Port and the fans are a bit more sensible." Lasted there four months.

24. Teddy Sheringham 

Managed: Stevenage, ATK

Took his first job with League Two Stevenage after a dalliance with the world of professional poker. Had previously worked as attacking coach with West Ham. Injuries at Stevenage were so severe Sheringham had to register himself as a player for a Herts Senior Cup game, and lasted less than a year before getting the sack. Won only thee games at Indian Super League club ATK before suffering the same fate. 

23. Peter Davenport

Managed: Macclesfield, Bangor, Colwyn Bay, Southport

Was with Ferguson during his first two seasons at United. Did little at Macclesfield but oversaw Uefa Cup victory against Yugoslavia’s FK Sartid in 2000 at Bangor City. Moved into non-league football but has not managed since 2010.

22. Frank Stapleton 

anaged: Bradford, New England Revolution

The Irishman was sacked after three years as player-manager of fourth-tier Bradford City in 1994. Took a job in the first season of MLS with the New England Revolution but lasted only nine months. Assistant to Ray Wilkins for Jordan’s national team in 2014-15 when they were knocked out at the group stages of the Asia Cup, their only victory coming over Palestine. 

21. Simon Davies 

anaged: Chester

Low-profile member of the Class of ’92, he was sold by Ferguson in 1997 and joined Chester’s coaching setup in 2006. Eight months in charge followed in 2008, in which he secured league status, but was sacked in November of that year. Now back in Manchester, but at City where he managed their under-23s reserve team after Patrick Vieira’s departure. 

20. Gary Neville

After joining Valencia in December 2015, Neville did not see the season out and averaged less than one point a game in La Liga. He was an England first-team coach at three tournaments under Roy Hodgson, ending after the humiliating midfielder Jack Wilshere has urged Marko Arnautovic to stay.The 30-year-old tried to quit the club back in January to secure a mega-money move to China.Wilshere said: “Marko is a top, top player. “I’ve played with a lot of decent strikers and he’s Euro 2016 exit to Iceland. 

19. Ryan Giggs 

anaged: Manchester United

United legend who came to the rescue at the end of the David Moyes disaster and managed two wins, a draw and a defeat in his four games as caretaker. Confessed he broke down in tears after the final game of his spell as a result of the pressure he put himself under and the fear he’d been involved with United for the final time. Those fears were allayed when he became Louis van Gaal’s assistant.

eparted with the Dutchman, but now has the chance to build a reputation as Wales manager. Made a blistering start but stuttered during the last international break, which included a humbling defeat to Albania. 

18. Andrei Kanchelskis 

anaged: Torpedo-Zil Moscow, Ufa, Jurmala

Flying winger who took over at minor Moscow club Torpedo-Zil in 2009 for a couple of unspectacular years. Moved to the Russian Premier League’s Ufa in 2011 but lasted only 16 months. Relegated Latvians Jurmala in 2014. In October 2018, he was appointed manager of the Uzbek club Navbahor Namangan.

17. Chris Casper 

Managed: Bury

Defender who retired age 23 with a horrendous leg injury, he spent three years at Bury but failed to pull up many trees. Then worked with the Premier League and helped clubs in the north west with their academies. Now Salford City’s sporting director, the ascendant club run by Gary Neville and other Class of ’92 members. 

16. Chris Turner 

Managed: Leyton Orient, Hartlepool, Sheffield Wednesday, Stockport

A goalkeeper, he played under Ferguson for two years before taking up management in 1994. Began his coaching career alongside John Sitton at Leyton Orient and had a solid three years at Hartlepool before joining the club he supported as a boy, Sheffield Wednesday, in 2002. He was relegated with them, then Stockport the following year. Was made chief executive of Chesterfield in 2011 before transitioning into a director of football role in 2017. Was later made redundant and is now not in football. 

15. David Healy 

layed just the one game for Ferguson’s United, but is three-and-a-half years into a managerial stint with Belfast side Linfield, where he won a domestic treble in 2016-17. 

14. Michael Appleton 

anaged: Portsmouth, Blackpool, Blackburn, Oxford United, Leicester City

Played twice for United under Ferguson before joining Preston. Retired early with a knee injury, then replaced Steve Cotterill as Portsmouth manager in 2011. Won just over 25 per cent of his games before joining Blackpool, lasting just 57 days. Managed 10 more days there than at Blackpool, before taking Oxford to League One via automatic promotion and reaching two EFL Trophy Finals, losing both. Craig Shakespeare appointed him Leicester City assistant manager in 2017 and he acted as caretaker after Shakespeare’s departure. Appleton left Leicester after Claude Puel’s appointment. 

13. Roy Keane 

Managed: Sunderland, Ipswich

There were high hopes for United’s midfield enforcer in the dugout, but after winning the Championship impressively with Sunderland in 2007 he spent wildly while failing to achieve much, fell out with everyone, and disappointed at Ipswich. Worked as Martin O’Neill’s No 2 with the Republic of Ireland for five years, reaching the knockout stages of Euro 2016, but things turned sour and stale over the next campaign. Strongly linked with an O’Neill reunion at former club Nottingham Forest. 

12. Paul Ince 

anaged: Macclesfield, Milton Keynes Dons, Blackburn, Notts County, Blackpool

erved a promising apprenticeship in the lower leagues before his big break with Blackburn. Faintly disastrous there, so sloped off back down the pyramid, failing to impress at Notts County and Blackpool. Yet to work in management since.

11. Jaap Stam

Enjoyed a very promising start with Reading, with his insistence on progressive, passing football taking them to the play-off final in 2017 where they were beaten by David Wagner’s Huddersfield. Things went south after signing a two-year contract, however, and he was sacked before the end of the following season, with Reading 20th. Now back in Holland. 

10. Henniy has revealed he wants to return to Everton as coach.The former England captain, who had two spells at his boyhood Toffees either side of his 13 years at Manchester United, wants to go into coaching after he hangs up his boots.Asked if he would likeng Berg 

Managed: Lyn, Lillestrom, Blackburn, Legia Warsaw, Videton. 

Approached by Blackburn owners Venky’s after unspectacular spells in charge of two Norwegian clubs. Won just one game for Rovers and was sacked after 57 days in the job. Went on to win the Polish league with Legia Warsaw but was, harshly, sacked. Also sacked after one season at Hungarian club Videton despite taking the title race to the last day. 

9. Mark Robins 

Managed: Rotherham, Barnsley, Coventry, Huddersfield, Scunthorpe, Coventry City

He has taken charge of five clubs since retiring as a player in 2005. Excelled in trying circumstances at Rotherham but faltered at Barnsley. Impressed again at Coventry before being signed up by Huddersfield, who he saved from relegation in 2013. Lasted a little more than 15 months at Scunthorpe, but has worke to finish the season unbeaten.Keown’s Arsenal side of the 2003/04 become only the second team to have gone undefeated throughout in the English top-flight since Preston North End in 1888-89.”During Arsenal’s 2003-04 Invincibles season, I saw opponend wonders at Coventry – winning the Checkatrade Trophy in his first season and promotion to League One via the play-offs in his second. Coventry are in a top-half position in League One as we stand. 

8. Henrik Larsson 

anaged: Landskrona, Falkenbergs, Helsingborgs

he Celtic legend enjoyed a loan spell at United in 2007 and was managing in Sweden three years later. Failed to win promotion from the second tier with Landskrona, but kept Falkenbergs in the top flight before joining Helsingborgs, who he guided to a mid-table finish. 

7. Bryan Robson 

anaged: Middlesbrough, Bradford, West Brom, Sheffield United, Thailand

Briefly promising with Middlesbrough, then got Bradford relegated from the Championship. Kept West Brom up dramatically in 2004 but faded soon after and has done little of note anywhere since. Now back at United as a club ambassador. 

6. Darren Ferguson 

anaged: Peterborough, Preston, Doncaster

Ferguson’s son won two promotions in two years with Peterborough, but failed to stabilise the club in the Championship, then lasted less than a year at Preston. Returned to Peterborough with mixed results. Now at League One Doncaster.

5. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Managed: Molde, Cardiff, Manchester United

Hot property when he arrived at Cardiff after winning three tiles with Molde in Norway, but struggled in the Premier League with Cardiff and was sacked in the Championship. Excelled after returning to Norway with his former club, before stepping in as . Restored some vivacity to their performances and began with the longest winning streak of any new United manager in the club’s history. There is growing noise linking Solskjaer with the job permanently. 

4. Gordon Strachan 

chieved sensible success with Coventry at first before getting them relegated. Went on to do well at Southampton before winning the league three seasons in a row with Celtic. Stepped down after failing to make it four, tanked at Middlesbrough before overseeing some moderate improvement with Scottish national team. Strachan resigned however, after failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup. 

3. Steve Bruce 

Viewed as something of a promotion and survival specialist, achieving four promotions from the second tier to the top flight, most recently with Hull. Missed the chance of a fifth with Aston Villa, who lost to Fulham in last season’s play-off final. Villa fans never really took to Bruce’s drab football and rigid tactics, but he has another crack at the Championship with Sheffield Wednesday. A fine management career, but one suspects his best days lie in the past. 

2. Mark Hughes 

anaged: Wales, Blackburn, Manchester City, Fulham, QPR, Stoke

Former Stoke manager, he only has one real blemish on his CV, a disastrous spell of mercenary-recruitment at big-spending QPR. Even there he kept the club up against the odds in 2011/12. Has worked well with limited resources at Wales, Blackburn and Fulham. Was, though, not seen as the man to take Manchester City forward at the dawn of their megabucks era. Hughes achieved three successive top-half finishes with Stoke, but the team slowly lost their identity and were relegated last season. Stoke sacked Hughes too late to avoid their fate. 

1. Laurent Blanc 

anaged: Bordeaux, France, Paris Saint-Germain

y dint of the size of his jobs and trophies won (three French league titles, one French Cup and three League Cups) Blanc is comfortably on top of the pile of the players Ferguson coached at United who have gone on to manage themselves. Won the league with Bordeaux and has done well with PSG. Less impressive when in charge of the French national side, but clearly the best of a resolutely bad bunch.
