Liverpool 3 Southampton 0: Mo Salah and Philippe Coutinho overwhelm sluggish Saints


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

He was signed to create but he is re-writing goal records. Not since Robbie Fowler has anyone started a Liverpool career in such prolific form. Salah took his tally to 14 in 18 games, nine in 12 Premier League fixtures. Fowler struck eight in that time in the early 1990s.

Salah’s first yesterday on 31 minutes had a dash of Kenny Dalglish picking out the ton Saturday.Solskjaer was keen to provide some context having watched people purr over Liverpool’s youthful starting XI in their FA Cup win over Everton last weekend.His United side have a younger average age than the line-up selected by Jurgen Klopp p corner with a dipping, swerving shot from the edge of the penalty area. At first glance, it seemed Fraser Forster ought to have got closer. At second, it was evident the Southampton keeper had no chance.

Four minutes before the interval, Salah had his second, drifting inward from the right wing to latch onto the kind of Philippe Coutinho pass that carries as much gravitas as the finish. Salah nudged past Forster with his lethal left foot and Liverpool’s superiority was confirmed.

“The first one is not a real chance. It was a fantastic goal,” said Klopp. “The second? Fantastic play. What a pass.”

The home side had started menacingly, the advancing of Trent Alexander-Arnold especially prominent, but there was a pleasing pace to their performance. The quartet of Salah, Coutinho, Sadio Mane anll struggle to beat Liverpool.Taylor, who spent nine years with the West Midlands club and was a member of the 1996 League Cup-winning team, admits it will be a testing afternoon for the Villans.“I think you can ask every club in the country the sad Roberto Firmino brought wisdom as much as quality, the feeling a goal would come long before it was spectacularly delivered.

Southampton were organised without being in full retreat but finding it impossible to escape.

“We started well but then made a couple of mistakes which you cannot against this type of game,” said coach Mauricio Pellegrino. After the second goal, it was really difficult.”

At least one of his defenders was prompting admiration in his efforts to repel Klopp’s attackers. Five months after his attempts to join the Merseyside club, Virgil van Dijk was finally at Anfield, and there was not a Premier League complaint in sight. The Kop was not sure whether to cheer or jeer. The only applause granted the defender was late on, and that was ironic as he sliced a clearance.

Van Dijk had a glimpse of what he has been denied, helpless as the runners kept scurrying his direction through the second half.

Liverpool squandered several opportunities to extend their lead, Alberto Moreno especially eager to celebrate becoming a father for the second time after his wife gave birth on Friday, but the third arrived courtesy of Coutinho, pouncing after Forster was unable to hold FirArsenal.The 19-year-old has been with Arsenal since he was eight, but he spent last season on loan at German club Hoffenheim.Nelson, who started for Arsenal in Sunday’s 1-0 win at Newcastle, has revealed how his aim is to make it at the Emirates and mino’s strike.

Liverpool are quietly in form, with 13 goals in four consecutive wins since their humbling 4-1 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur last month. This time last season, an irresistible start to the season was undermined in the build-up to Christmas. This year, they look equipped to pick up the pace to reassert their top-four challenge.

“It looked much more mature, and that is very important for us,” said Klopp. “It was just an all-round good performance and really deserved.”

Jose Mourinho lambasts ‘nonsense’ fixture schedule as Manchester United cruise to FA Cup fifth round


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

“It’s absolutely nonsense and I know this is not just for Watford, I know that applies with many other clubs. Liverpool are going to play 16 matches, Chelsea will play 16 matches, plus some in the FA Cup and we are in this crazy situation.

“I think Southampton will have 15 days without football before the final and we are going to have in these 15 days two matches against St Étienne [in the Europa League] and the next round of the FA Cup so the calendar in the best country of world football is nonsense.

“In a realistic way I think the ­Premier League is almost an impossible mission but I just think about winning the next match and the next match is not an impossible mission.

“In the League Cup we have a 50 per cent chance of winning it. In the FA Cup we are in the last 16. In the Europa League we are in the last 32, so lots of matches to play.”

Mourinho may be forced to tackle that forbidding fixture list with a reduced squad, too, unless the potential departure of more players paves the way for a new arrival in the next 48 hours. Watford, West Bromwich Albion, West Ham ­United and Everton, as well as ­Chinese Super League clubs, are interested in Young, who was omitted from the squad against Wigan as a consequence. Doubts have also been cast over the future of Rooney, who has a £32 million-a-year offer on the table to move to China before their transfer window closes on Feb 28.

Asked about Rooney – who was presented with a golden boot before kick-off by Sir Bobby Charlton to commemorate breaking his ­United goalscoring record – Mourinho said: “The only player that I am aware of a possibility to leave, and I am waiting for Jan 31 to know what really is going on, is Ashley Young, a player that I would love to keep. If I could choose, yes definitely, he will stay with us.”

One United player who is going nowhere, for now at least, is Bastian Schweinsteiger. The midfielder, 32, capped a first start for the club in 385 days by scoring the game’s fourth goal with an overhead kick of sorts to add some gloss to a scoreline that flattered Mourinho’s side after a dogged display from Wigan.

and g departed for Everton and Lyon respectively this month, Mourinho said Schweinsteiger would be in the squad for the Europa League knockout stage. “He’s staying and he’s going to the Europa League list because we open spaces with Depay and Schneiderlin [gone], and we don’t have many players and in midfield we don’t have many options so obviously he’s an option,” he said.

Mourinho admitted United “did nothing” in the first half, when he had substitutes Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcus Rashford warming up after jayer-manager Vincent Kompany says Manchester City must keep hold of Pep Guardiola.Guardiola signed a new contract last year until 2021, but reports earlier this month suggested that the deal included an option to depart 12 months early – something heust 16 mines have made in the Premier League.When their first game ended in a 4-0 loss to Manchester United, many worried for the Blues and boss Frank Lampard.But they have bounced back and are firmly in contention for a top four a lot.Their away form is especutes, and he told his players as much at the interval. United were fortunate to lead 1-0 at half-time after Marouane Fellaini headed in Schweinsteiger’s cross but they improved in the second half. Anthony Martial was more effective once moved wide on the left and set up the second and third goals for Chris Smalling and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. Sanchester United have been warned over the future of Tahith Chong.The 19-year-old has featured twice in the Premier League this season but is yet to agree a new deal at Old Trafford.Juventus are the latest club to be linked with a move for Chong nextchweinsteiger added a fourth when he scooped Ander Herrera’s knock down over his head and in.

Warren Joyce, the Wigan manager who was previously United’s Under-21 coach, said: “We got all the things we wanted to do pretty much right for 44 minutes. We ­created the best chances with ­pretty clever football then conceded a goal you see every week in the Championship. Four-nil probably flatters United.”

Texas off. coordinator Wickline files lawsuit against Oklahoma State


While plenty of college football fans put coaches on trial for the decisions they make on a weekly basis, offensive coordinator Joe Wickline is going to court to prove he’s the coach making the decisions.

Wickline , , claiming that the school has not fully released him from his contract. Wickline had been Oklahoma State’s offensive line coach before leaving the school to join Charlie Strong’s staff at Texas as offensive coordinator. And that’s where things became complicated.

When it was announced that Wickline was leaving for Texas, Ok Sampdoria midfielder Dennis Praet.The Gunners remain keen on the Belgian, having failed with two offers for Praet and Samp teammate Joachim Andersen.But Corriere dello Sport says Milan are also targeting Praet, ironically after failing to reach termlahoma State was quick to point out a clause in his contract stating he would owe the school the remaining balance of his deal (the school is currently asking for $593,478) unless he left to become an offensive coordinator “with play-calling duties” or took a job in the . 

Wellter’s style of play to Barcelona.Montoya has spoken about how the system he played at Barcelona is similar to what Albion are playing now.He said: “At Barcelona, for example, the system was always playing and then when you lose the ball try to win , while Wickline is no doubt Texas’ offensive coordinator, there’s some question as to whether or not he’s the one actually calling the plays on offense.

Since the beginning of the Strong regime in Austin, local media have always referred to quarterbacks coach Shawn Watson as the team’s play-caller, something the school has never once disputed.

So is Joe Wickline calling plays for Texas? It seems that’s something for the courts to decide. 

Oh, and Oklahoma Ole Gunnar Solskjaer felt they didn’t deserve defeat to Crystal Palac.United dominated most of the match statistics but couldn’t convert the lion’s share of shots, possession and chances created into goals. Even when Daniel James scored a brilliant eState and Texas play in Stillwater on Nov. 15, so this should add some spice to that contest.
