Chelsea Team News

Under the management of Antonio Conte, Chelsea is looking much better after a pretty long time, and that is why they have upraised their position to the 2nd following a 2-2 draw against Swansea City at Liberty Stadium. Chelsea’s current statistics seems impressive since they haven’t lost any match in this season. Although they brought against Swansea City, the defeat mark has not been gained by them.

The Spanish striker, Costa is on fire, and his two goals help Blues to get the score levelled at Liberty Stadium. Conte is managing Chelsea tactically, and his style of gameplay seems more than impressive for a team like Chelsea. However, the bad news is the skipper, John Terry, won’t be available against Liverpool at Stamford Bridge because of having an ankle injury. That implies, Ivanovic, Azpilicueta, and Cahill need to manage the defense lineup with another defender.

However, it seems Conte will continue with the 4-1-4-1 formation since that structure is giving him a positive result. Costa is coming back to the position, but Oscar needs to be more careful since he missed some chances in the last match against Swansea City. On the other hand, the Frenchman, Kante, is being utilized by Conte, which will certainly help them to grow.

Probable Starting Lineup of Chelsea

Courtois; Ivanovic, Cahill, David Luiz, Azpilicueta; Kante; Willian, Oscar, Matic, Hazard; Costa.

Even though Sturridge and Milner played better but Firmiho stole the show at the Anfield, who scored two goals against Foxes. Following that, there is another player of Liverpool called Lallana, who scored a goal in 56th minute. Considering all the things, this is cleared that Klopp is managing Liverpool with a different strategy than earlier, which is helping them, no doubt.

Talking about the formation, Klopp has been deploying 4-3-3 formation for a long time now. Like previous matches, Mane will work on the right wing when Firmiho is managing left wing. The midfield will be managed by Wijnaldum, Henderson, and Lallana.

Probable Starting Lineup of Liverpool

The English giants face each other second time in just 4 days, but this time, they are locking horns in the Premier League. Manchester City tasted the last blood as they beaten their local rivals in the Capital One Cup Finals on penalties. Jurgen Klopp’s men had a better game but their lack of accuracy in the final third cost them the game.

The German is entering the game with new hopes of beating the Citizens this time and a victory is a must needed one for the Reds to keep their chances of a Champions League spot alive. For City, the game can turn out to be a title decider as they aim to shorten the point gap to League Leaders Leicester City.

Liverpool Vs Manchester City Match Preview: 3/3/2016 Premier League

The Reds were enjoying a fine run of form since Jurgen Klopp took over and are unbeaten in their last five games except the penalty defeat to Manchester City in the Capital One Cup final. On the contrary, Manchester City have lost three out of their last five games in all competitions. City have gained some confidence back after the Capital One Cup victory and manager Manuel Pellegrini wished to sign off with the English Premier League title.

Liverpool Squad News

Liverpool have no fresh injury concerns, but defender martin Skrtel is not yer ready to start for the Reds. Adam Lallana played an hour against City in the last game and is ready to start the game. Dejan Lovren is not yet 100% fit, but Mamadou Sakho’s head injury may sideline him and Lovren may get his start.

LFC

Daniel Sturridge enjoyed a good game and is returning to his potential best after spending most of this season on the sidelines due to injuries. Roberto Firminho, Philippe Coutinho are a threat to Reds’ opponents and the presence of James Milner in the middle provides experience and versatility.

Liverpool’s expected Starting XI for Liverpool Vs Manchester City

Simon Mignolet, Nathanial Clyne, Kolo Toure, Dejan Lovren, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson, Philipe Coutinho, Roberto Firminho, Daniel Sturridge, Christian Benteke.

Manchester City Squad News

Joe Hart is expected to return to the starting XI after missing out the cup final last on Sunday. The major problem for Manchester City this season is injuries to key players. Kevin de Bryune, Samir Nasri are out of the squad, David Silva  have sustained a small injury in his last game which may sideline him. Yaya Toure will also not start the game probably as he limped off the field in the Capital One Cup final and did not strain himself much while the team was celebrating the victory.

Martin-Skrtel-Sergio-Aguero

City’s title hopes are on ropes after their struggles in the last months, but the Capital One Cup victory gave them a new confidence. Manuel Pellegrini is hopeful that his team can win the League title this season amid not being one of the favorites to clinch the title. Leicester City and Tottenham are the top 2 favorites to win EPL this season, but Pellegrini is hopeful that his team can upset the top 2 and win the league.

Manchester City’s expected Starting XI for Liverpool Vs Manchester City

Joe Hart, Bacary Sagna, Vincent Kompany, Nicolas Otamendi, Clichy, Fernando, Yaya Toure, Fernandinho, Jesus Navas, Raheem Sterling, Sergio Aguero.

Liverpool Vs Manchester City Match Prediction

The visitors will find it difficult to break Liverpool if David Silva misses out from the start. Raheem Sterling’s finishing ability is a big concern for City against Liverpool in the last game, but the English youngster is always a threat up front. Liverpool have to rely on Roberto Firminho and Daniel Sturridge to provide the goals and they will definitely miss Martin Skrtel to keep Sergio Aguero shut.

Though City won the Capital One Cup final, they did not create much threat to Liverpool in the game and relied mostly on counters. In short, the team who play more CLINICAL football will have the upper hand.

Current Form and Performances of Liverpool

P160113-033-Liverpool_Arsenal-573x420

Cup competitions are the best probable titles for Jurgen Klopp this year as his team is currently in the 6th position in English Premier League with only a Top 4 finish is possible. In the Europa League, Liverpool have to play Manchester United in the next round against whom the Reds lost twice this season. So, the Capital One Cup is the first of the TWO best options available for Liverpool. Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool are playing better but they form is inconsistent and they lose games in regular intervals to make things bad. Still a win is possible aginst City, but the Reds will need their defense to play a tight game.

Reserve Assistant Referee: Eddie Smart 

Match Prediction

Though City have the better squad, the game will be dominated by Jurgen Klopp and his men. A clean sheet for either team is impossible and we can expect some individual heroics from both the sides especially from Coutinho or Aguero.

Jurgen Klopp has not forgot Bundesliga and here is the proof. The Bundesliga club Schalke’scentral defender Joel Matip is about to sign on a deal with the Premier League club, Liverpool FC. This is not a rumour as Schalke has already confirmed this deal on Twitter and on official website with a statement that, the central defender is not willing to renew the deal with Schalke and is willing to join Anfield at the end of this season.

Joel Matip Confirms Liverpool Signing at the End of This Season

The Chief executive has told that,

We have since May last year had many intensive discussions, both with Joel and his advisor. It was soon clear that factors would be decisive for Joel’s decision that we ultimately could not influence.

On the other hand, Schalke have told that,

Joel Matip has agreed to join Liverpool at the end of the season, and will not extend his contract at Schalke. The central defender will sign a new deal at the Premier League club.

He has been playing in Bundesliga since 2009 and he has a good carrier at Schalke. Therefore, the new Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, is willing to bring this player at Liverpool.

On the same transfer news, Matip has said that,

I have always said I would say goodbye to Schalke for only one reason: to get acquainted with something completely new. Therefore, a change within the Bundesliga never came into consideration for me. Although my decision is definitely not easy, I am convinced that now is the right time to take this step. Schalke will remain a big family for me. I was always proud to play for this great club and I will do everything possible in the coming months to get the most out of this season. I owe the fans and the team.

Although, the joining price is still not disclosed but it is going to be a free transfer from his current club.

Dear Liverpool supporters,

It has been a tumultuous week. On behalf of everyone at Fenway Sports Group and Liverpool Football Club we would like to apologise for the distress caused by our ticket pricing plan for the 2016-17 season. The three of us have been particularly troubled by the perception that we don’t care about our supporters, that we are greedy, and that we are attempting to extract personal profits at the club’s expense. Quite the opposite is true.

From our first days as owners we have understood that serving as custodians of this incredible institution is a distinct privilege and as such, we have been driven solely by the desire to return LFC to the pinnacle of football. In the world of modern football, growing the club in a sustainable way is essential to realising this objective.

To that end, we have never taken a single penny out of the football club. Instead we have injected vast sums of our own money to improve the playing squad and modernize LFC’s infrastructure-exemplified by the £120m advance from FSG to build the new Main Stand. This massive undertaking was made in order to provide more supporters access to Anfield and also to produce additional revenue to help us compete financially with clubs that have greater resources. When it opens in August this year the stand will accomplish those goals thereby fulfilling a promise we made upon acquiring LFC in 2010.

We were strongly engaged in the process to develop the ticketing plan for 2016-17. We met directly with representatives of LFC’s Supporters’ Committee and along with LFC management, wholeheartedly agreed with major concerns raised, notably: access for local and young supporters; engagement and access to Anfield for local children; access to Premier League matches for those in Liverpool most challenged by affordability.

Liverpool fans protests for ticket price hike

We believe the plan successfully addressed these concerns and are disappointed that these elements have been either lost or, worse, characterised as cynical attempts to mask profiteering in the plan as a whole. Rather, we prefer to look at them as the parts of the ticketing plan we got right. On the other hand, part of the ticketing plan we got wrong.

In addition to the other elements of the plan we proposed price increases on a number of tickets. These pricing actions generated growth in General Admission ticketing revenue on a like for like basis exclusive of revenue from newly added GA seats.

We believed by delivering a vastly improved seat offering in what will be the newest stand in English football, concentrating the price increases on those tickets typically purchased by fans least sensitive to affordability, and for LFC to begin repaying the £120m advance from FSG for the new Main Stand that these increases were supportable even in the context of growth in revenues from the new Premier League TV deal. However, the widespread opposition to this element of the plan has made it clear that we were mistaken.

A great many of you have objected strongly to the £77 price level of our most expensive GA seats and expressed a clear expectation that the club should forego any increased revenue from raising prices on GA tickets in the current environment. Message received.

After an intense period of consultation with LFC management we have decided to make major revisions to our ticketing structure for 2016-17:

Removal of game categorisation – regardless of the opposition fans will pay the same price for matchday tickets.

The pricing of tickets will be readjusted to result in zero revenue growth from GA ticketing on a like for like basis.

Though individual ticket prices may move marginally from this season, we are freezing our 2016-17 GA ticket revenue at the 2015-16 level exclusive of newly added seats in the new Main Stand.

The price of our highest General Admission ticket will be frozen at the 2015-16 level – £59.

The price of our highest Season Ticket will be frozen at the 2015-16 level – £869. The lowest price reducing a further £25 from the 2015–16 level to £685, as well as all other tiers being frozen or reduced.

£9 GA seats will be offered for each and every Premier League match, an allocation of more than 10,000 tickets across the season. We would hasten to add that the other initiatives announced last week in the 2016-17 plan will remain.

17-21 young adult concession – 20,000 tickets across the Premier League season available at a 50% reduction for young people.

1,000 tickets to Premier League matches across the season will be given away free of charge to Liverpool school children based on merit, as recommended by their teachers.

As a sign of our commitment to this improved ticketing structure, we are further announcing that this plan shall be in effect for both the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons. For the next two seasons, LFC will not earn a single additional pound from increasing General Admission ticket prices. We believe we have demonstrated a willingness to listen carefully, reconsider our position, and act decisively. The unique and sacred relationship between Liverpool Football Club and its supporters has always been foremost in our minds. It represents the heartbeat of this extraordinary football club.

More than any other factor by far, that bond is what drives us to work tirelessly on behalf of the club and its future. We have great conviction in our world class manager and our young, talented squad and know that in time the on-pitch success we all crave will be realised.

We look forward to sharing in that success with you.

The new coach of Liverpool has eventually spoken a little something about the match ticket price issue. Liverpool has evolved the ticket price structure, what has produced complications amongst Liverpool fans. The utmost ticket price would be £77 that is certainly not liked by a large number of fans. Consequently, they walked out from the stadium on 77th minute during the Liverpool vs Sunderland match which ended up with 2-2 draw.

Liverpool were dominating the match through the first minute, but they conceded two goals after the walk out of supporters. In accordance with the coach, Jurgen Klopp, this is a big issue and in line with the supporters, football without fans is nothing.

Even though, Klopp was not there in the stadium due to an appendix surgery, but he knows almost everything relating to this problem. On this matter, he has said that,

It is not too easy for me to say too much about it. I heard about this problem but I’ve had a lot of things to do in the last few weeks, but now I know it is my problem too, of course.

But everything I could say about this now would make it more complicated because first of all I have to collect a few bits of information.

What I know is everyone in the club has a big interest in finding a solution for this. It is not what we want, we don’t want the people leaving the stadium before the game is finished. That is all I can say about this, but of course when I heard it (the walkout) I was disappointed.

On the other hand, they have also cancelled a Q&A session with Ian Ayre, the Chief Executive. According to the club authority,

LFC thanks fans for submitting questions for tonight’s Q&A however due to ongoing ticketing discussions, this will no longer take place.

Now, it has become a big issue for Liverpool as they have quite good fan base. At the same time, they are quite right as supporters play a vital role in every football match and they have seen that effect during the Sunderland match.
