Liverpool to wait on Henderson recovery

Able to strike from long range, run at terrified defenders or sneak pesky through balls into space you didn’t even know was there, the 23-year old is becoming the centre piece in Rodgers’ side.


I was talking to Richard the other day about who has the best team in the Premier League. “Then within the final 10-15 minutes of the Stoke recreation I felt it risky and I couldn’t actually put my weight on it”, stated Henderson.

‘The Premier League does not generally comment on decisions made by match officials. The squad refresh points to a potentially brilliant season.

In the incident in question, Benteke turned in a deep cross from Jordan Henderson at the far post after the ball flew past an offside Coutinho.

On the opening day they slid past a solid looking Stoke City side. As Andy says, that was down to a bit of complacency.

Arsenal’s three-goal salvo before halftime practically ended Liverpool’s hopes of finishing in the top four last season. Everyone else had a problem with the number of penalties we got which, for me, were 99 per cent legitimate.

“Tactically, we arrive with a good mind of how to win it”. Adam Lallana sees no reason to change strategy.

Chelsea has dropped five points after two games.

Over in Merseyside, Christian Benteke has enjoyed a good start to his Liverpool career after joining from Aston Villa in the summer.

Apart from Liverpool, the other 100 per cent records are held by the two Manchester clubs and Leicester, the surprise team among the pacesetters.

“I am really confident in this group”.

United have brought in so many new faces, that it is only natural that it will take a few games for them to gel. What we need to see now is an improvement in quality. They are a shambles.

Premier League predictions for this weekend, featuring Man Utd, Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe, whose side lost 1-0, criticised the decision and the Premier League has now conceded that in light of new guidelines regarding the offside rule, the goal should have been ruled out.
