Liverpool, Lille hold talks over Origi’s return

first_imgThe striker, 19, joined the Reds in a £10m deal last year but was loaned back to the French club for this season.“There has been some discussion but there is nothing to report,” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers said. “The agreement was for him to stay there so we will see how that works.“If not we have the players here and we will go with what we have got.”Liverpool are light in attack, with Daniel Sturridge a long-term injury absentee and Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert delivering just four goals between them.-Rodgers on Balotelli-Balotelli has been linked with a move away from Anfield this month but Rodgers, whose side travels to Aston Villa this weekend, has ruled that out.“Mario is a good guy and he’s not scored the goals he or we would have wanted,” he said.“But we are determined to help him find the solution here so he certainly won’t be going anywhere in January.”-Rodgers on Steven Gerrard loan deal-Liverpool chief executive Ian Ayre says it is “conceivable” Steven Gerrard could return to the club on loan following his move to Los Angeles Galaxy.“I have nothing more to say on the situation.

Victory for Tottenham at Liverpool would not worry Chelsea – Mauricio Pochettino

first_imgFor your chance to win £100K, sign up to play Dream Team Europe Fantasy FootballMauricio Pochettino accepts Chelsea will not be worried about Tottenham even if his side seal a crunch victory at Liverpool on Saturday.Spurs face Jurgen Klopp’s men at Anfield this weekend looking to reduce a nine-point gap behind Antonio Conte’s Premier League leaders, who travel to relegation strugglers Burnley on Sunday.With 14 games left, the Blues’ advantage seems almost insurmountable, particularly given they are unbeaten in the six games since losing to Tottenham at the start of the year.Liverpool’s recent slump would appear to offer Spurs the perfect opportunity to register their first victory at Anfield since 2011.But Pochettino insists even success will not set any nerves jangling in west London.“Chelsea aren’t worried about that,” Pochettino said.“It is true that Conte wants to keep the motivation high and keep them pushing and fighting, but I think they are worried about themselves.”Pochettino added: “It is not about sending a message to Chelsea. We are competing with ourselves, like we were last season.“We are our own enemies and if we win, we win. It is important to be focused on ourselves.“It is true in the last four or five games when you need to reduce the gap you are not only thinking of winning games, you are looking to reduce the gap to your opponent.“But today it is about you. You need to be able to keep that level about winning, winning, winning games, then hope afterwards that Chelsea drop points.”Anything less than a win will see Chelsea extend their lead into double figures with a victory at Turf Moor 24 hours later. Pochettino, however, maintains nothing will be decided this weekend.“It’s not decisive,” the Argentinian said. “There are lots of games ahead, but it will be important.“If we win it will be important to keep good a position and put pressure on Chelsea, it’s true. It’s not decisive but it’s important.”If Chelsea prove uncatchable, Tottenham will want to secure Champions League qualification again, as well as winning the race for second – something they failed to do last year.Victory over Liverpool will see Spurs move seven points clear of their out-of-sorts opponents, who have managed just one triumph in 10 matches.“I’m thinking about the top of the table,” Pochettino said. “That is not the problem today, to be seven points (ahead of Liverpool).“The important thing is to win as the objective is to reduce the gap to Chelsea and for that we need to be ready to fight. It will be a very, very, very difficult game.“They’re not in a good run but Liverpool have very good players. For me it is one of best squads not only in England but in Europe.“They will be motivated as Tottenham against Liverpool is always a big match.”Liverpool’s dramatic dip in form has prompted questions about the players’ ability to sustain the intensity Klopp demands, and a lack of leadership in the squad.Tottenham endured a similar malaise in October when injuries to key players disrupted the team’s rhythm, and Pochettino is backing the Reds also to bounce back.“I cannot explain about another team that is not mine,” Pochettino said.“I can only say we have same problem in November, when we play for the Champions League. After Manchester City (2-0 home win on October 2) I think it was seven, eight games without a victory.“During the whole season always every club can have ups and downs. For us it was the same.“They are a very good team, they have very good players and they will be motivated like us.“We need to be ready to fight because it’s a different game when you play Liverpool against Tottenham. You need to be ready to fight.” 1 Spurs could temporarily move six points behind the league leaders last_img read more

Antonio Conte insists he is committed to Chelsea as he quashes Inter Milan links

first_img1 Antonio Conte celebrates a Chelsea win Antonio Conte has reiterated his commitment to building on his strong first season at Chelsea despite repeated rumours of a return to Italy.The 47-year-old former Juventus and Italy head coach has been linked with a move to Inter Milan after impressing in his first season in England, which could yet end with a league and cup double.Conte signed a three-year contract a year ago before taking up his position last July, and is adamant this is just the start of his career at Stamford Bridge.Conte told Sky Sport Italia: “Now we are fighting hard. We’re trying to finish this season by achieving something great and unexpected.“Then we will certainly try to build something great together.”Asked if that meant next season, Conte said: “Yes, for the next season.”Chelsea lead the Premier League by seven points from Tottenham – their FA Cup semi-final opponents later this month – and need 18 more to mathematically be certain of the title.last_img read more

Listen: Donegal hurling manager Ardal McDermott looks ahead to Division 3A final

first_imgDonegal senior hurling manager Ardal McDermott expects his team to grasp the chance in Saturday’s Allianz Hurling League Division 3A final against Tyrone (Celtic Park, 2pm).Donegal, Tyrone and Monaghan all finished level on eight points, but Donegal and Tyrone advanced to the decider on score difference.Relegated from Division 2B last year, Donegal are keen to get back on the promotion bus again; a chance that will present itself in the form of a play-off if they capture the title on Saturday. The final had originally been pencilled in for Carrick-on-Shannon, but the more sensible option of Celtic Park has since been chosen.Donegal lost 14 players from their 2016 panel for a variety of reasons, but additions such as Declan Coulter, a former Armagh All-Star, and Tipperary native Davin Flynn, have made the changing of the guard a seamless move.“We said that we were a team in transition, but we focussed on performances and we knew that we wouldn’t be far away from the League final if we played how we could,” McDermott told Donegal Daily.“It might have be more difficult than we’d have hoped, but we’ve managed to get to the League final. “The final is there to be won. This is where you want to be. You want the pressure of the big occasion. We’re looking forward to it. It’s chance to show off the work that we’ve put in.“I don’t think we’ll be found wanting at the weekend.”Donegal won 2-14 to 0-15 when the teams met at O’Donnell Park, while Tyrone won the corresponding fixture by two points, 1-12 to 1-10, at Garvaghey.Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Donegal hurling manager Ardal McDermott looks ahead to Division 3A final was last modified: March 31st, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Ardal McDermottdonegalTyronelast_img read more
