Liverpool is missing their most important duo of Salah and Mane; as they are playing for their respective nations in the AFCON. Without the duo the reds are expected to struggle to be prolific in front of goal; players such as Jota and Minamino will need to fill this huge void until the African duo will return. Currently, Liverpool are coming third in the domestic league; 11 points behind Manchester City who are a step closer to retaining the league title this season. Klopp’s side will play their next few league games against Brentford, Crystal place, and Leicester City; in addition to these league games, they will play Arsenal in the second leg of the EFL Cup semifinals.
The first leg of the EFL Cup semifinals ended in a goalless draw; the reds will be extremely disappointed with this result. This is because Arsenal played with 10 men after the 24th minute as Xhaka picked up a red card; despite dominating the game with 79% ball possession Klopp’s side couldn’t put a goal past Arsenal’s fortified defense. The second leg of this cup will be played at the Emirates on the 21st of January at 1:15 am IST; the winner of this game will face Chelsea in the finals in the hope to secure their piece of silverware this season!
Liverpool must extend Mane and Salah’s contracts!
Both Salah and Mane both have a contract with the Reds which will extend until the summer of 2023; Liverpool must move in to extend their superstars contracts. This is because many big clubs across Europe such as real Madrid and Barcelona have shown interest in signing the duo; if the Reds lose the duo they will find it extremely hard to replace them in this depleted transfer market!
Do you think Klopp’s side will extend their superstar’s contracts?
