  1. Your thoughts on Liverpool's transfer windowpublished at 19:43

    There's one week to go until the transfer window closes and we've been asking for your thoughts on Liverpool so far - who should Jurgen Klopp buy, sell or keep?

    Bouras Belkadi: Can't believe we haven't signed Raphinha yet. He's got experience and is good with free-kicks. We've got to get him before another team does.

    Andy: It's time FSG loosened the purse strings and backed Jurgen, we lost Gini Wijnaldum and no replacement bought in, just like last season with shortage of centre-backs and now Salah and Mane have gone off to Afcon and we are a little short up top. We need reinforcements now, our squad is ageing and now we have the Salah contract stand-off.

    Leon: Klopp has done well not to go in for short-term deals. Camavinga might struggle to break into the 11 but would help future-proof the ageing midfield whilst also strengthening the squad for a bargain. Raphinha, Kalvin Phillips of Leeds would be good, young signings. We also need competition for Mane/Jota - maybe Karim Adeyemi or Ansu Fati?

    Mark: Both me and my son are a bit nervous on Liverpool's lack of business in this window. We feel that Liverpool need a new forward at least. Plus we are becoming concerned about Salah's new contract, we feel that Liverpool need to give Salah what he's asking for (in terms of wage demands).

    Who do you think Liverpool should be going for before the transfer window closes? Have your say

  2. Who are the best Africans to play in the Premier League?published at 18:57

    A new series of the Match of the Day Top 10 podcast is just around the corner - and we want you to get involved in the panel's selections.

    Alan Shearer, Micah Richards and Gary Lineker will return in the spring but they have narrowed down their selections and would like your suggestions on who they've picked.

    Today's topic is the top 10 African players and it's no surprise to see Liverpool's dynamic duo on the list.

    Mohamed Salah (Egypt)

    Salah may have had an unhappy spell at Chelsea but, after a few years in Italy, he has been unstoppable since joining Liverpool in 2017.

    He has helped the Reds win the Premier League and Champions League and has twice been named as BBC African Footballer of the Year. A two-time winner of the Premier League Golden Boot, he has also been named Player of the Season once and, earlier this campaign, he broke Didier Drogba's record for most Premier League goals by an African player.

    Sadio Mane (Senegal)

    Mane moved to Southampton from Red Bull Salzburg in 2014 and has scored at least 10 league goals in every completed season since then. After his move to Liverpool, his career took off.

    He helped them to the Champions League final in 2018, won it a season later and a year after that had a Premier League winners medal. He played in the Africa Cup of Nations final with Senegal in 2019 and also finished fourth in the Ballon d'Or in the same year.

  4. 'That’s black and white and it’s not a penalty'published at 12:10

    Former Tottenham right back Stephen Kelly was baffled by the decision to award Liverpool a penalty for Vicente Guaita's challenge on Diogo Jota.

    Speaking on BBC Radio 5 Live's Football Daily podcast, Kelly said: "How can literally 99.9% of people think that is not a penalty and the one person that can actually influence it thinks it is?

    "I don’t understand the concept. I can’t get my head around it. It’s like they’ve never watched football before and they don’t understand the game, but they are in a position where they can actually really influence it and change the course of a match.

    "That’s what baffles me. I just don’t get it. It’s crazy. We’re in a position now where we have this technology and it can really be used wonderfully well if the people that are using it know how to use it and can call things properly and see how everybody sees it.

    "There are some decisions that are decisive and you can split people down the middle, but that’s not an opinion, that’s black and white and it’s not a penalty."

    • Liverpool have won each of their past 10 Premier League games against Crystal Palace, a run which started in August 2017. It equals their longest-ever winning run against a specific side in the competition - 10 vs Bolton between 2007-2011 and an ongoing run against Wolves which started in 2011.

    • Crystal Palace’s 10-game losing run against Liverpool in the Premier League is now their outright longest losing run against a specific opponent in their league history, surpassing a nine-game run against Spurs between 2015-2019.

    • Palace have lost consecutive home matches for the first time this season in the Premier League, while manager Patrick Vieira has lost consecutive home league matches for the first time since November 2020 – his final two home matches in Ligue 1 with Nice.

    • Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has now scored as many goals in his last two Premier League games (2) as he has managed in his previous 40 for Liverpool.

    • Liverpool’s penalty, which Fabinho scored, was the 169th spot-kick that they’ve been awarded in the Premier League, the joint-most in the competition’s history along with Manchester United.

  8. Liverpool overcome Afcon obstaclespublished at 07:34

    BBC Sport reporter Luke Reddy

    If Liverpool had been offered a place in the EFL Cup final and two wins from two in the league while playing without Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Naby Keita, it's fair to say they would have taken it.

    It is the fact such names were missing as to why Jurgen Klopp described Sunday's win at Crystal Palace as "massive" in the aftermath.

    His side closed the gap on Manchester City a little and showed a bit of everything to do so. They were sensational early on - destroying Palace with the press and picking crisp passes to built momentum until the home side caved in.

    The tide turned as Palace gained a footing and Liverpool showed grit to complement their early quality. All in all, this was a win where there was pressure to capitalise on a City slip, where players were missing and where the Reds had to show the variety they possess to get the job done.

    Curtis Jones again showed his promise. He completed 90% of his passes in all, 90% of his passes in the final third and created as many chances as anyone else in the team on the day. His recent form has been significant. One wonders how he may be used with the likes of Keita, Thiago and Harvey Elliot close to first-team returns.

    There will inevitably be VAR debate around the foul for the Reds' late penalty but they deserved the points. Big names have been out but others have stepped up to the plate admirably.

    Jones has shown poise, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has two goals in as many weeks, Diogo Jota is slowly becoming a Kop hero and the two goals Andrew Robertson created at Selhurst Park moved him into a Liverpool-filled top three for assists in the Premier League.

    This was a job well done. Klopp seems keen to play down any challenge but, based on recent weeks, Liverpool have not yet given up in their pursuit of the title.

  9. Team news - Crystal Palace v Liverpoolpublished at 13:08 23 January

    Vicente Guaita is a notable change for Crystal Palace from the 1-1 draw with Brighton last time out. He returns in goal to replace Jack Butland.

    The other home change sees Jean-Philippe Mateta come in for Eberechi Eze, who is on the bench.

    Crystal Palace XI: Guaita, Ward, Mitchel, Guehi, Olise, Hughes, Mateta, Schlupp, Andersen, Edouard, Gallagher.

    Liverpool were close to full strength when they faced Arsenal in the EFL Cup in midweek, aside from their players at the Africa Cup of Nations.

    So in relation to the 2-0 win at Arsenal they make two changes, as Alisson returns in goal and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain shakes off an injury to start.

    Liverpool XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson, Van Dijk, Matip, Fabinho, Henderson, Jones, Jota, Firmino, Oxlade-Chamberlain.

  10. London calling again as Reds face Selhurst Park testpublished at 18:45 21 January

    Chris Coughlin, BBC Radio Merseyside

    Liverpool are off to the capital for the second time in four days as they travel to face a rejuvenated Crystal Palace side who've been a breath of fresh air under Patrick Vieira this season.

    Jurgen Klopp spoke highly of the Eagles in his pre-match news conference, adding that the team have been "unlucky" at times this season, with five wins from 21 games perhaps not reflecting the progress that's been made at Selhurst Park.

    The Reds, however, have coped very well without their star men Mo Salah and Sadio Mane this month, clocking up three wins from four games since they left for Afcon. And they've scored nine goals and conceded only one.

    In the absence of Liverpool's international representatives, Diogo Jota stepped up to the plate once again during Thursday's win at Arsenal, and the goalscoring responsibility will likely fall on his shoulders again this weekend.

    Whenever this fixture comes about, the infamous 3-3 draw in 2014 will of course be referenced - but Liverpool's record at the home of the Eagles has been good since then, winning seven of their past eight, including a 7-0 rout last term.

    While a similar scoreline is unlikely on Sunday, Klopp and co will be confident of the same result.

    Lawro's prediction: 1-1

    Like Arsenal, Liverpool also come into this game on the back of a huge cup game and, as with the Gunners, I think it could affect them on Sunday.

    While Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are away, Liverpool have to work harder for a breakthrough whoever they play, and Palace are good enough defensively to make it really difficult for them.

    Call Me Loop's prediction: Even without Salah and Mane, Liverpool will be too strong. 1-2

    Jordan Ayew is available for Crystal Palace this weekend after returning from international duty with Ghana.

    Wilfried Zaha and Cheikhou Kouyate are still involved in the Africa Cup of Nations, while James McArthur and James Tomkins remain out.

    Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could recover in time from the ankle problem he sustained last weekend.

    Joel Matip was substituted as a precaution at half-time against Arsenal on Thursday and will also be assessed.

    Would you put Ayew in your Palace XI?

    Is there a place for Oxlade-Chamberlain in your Reds XI?

  15. Phillips set to leave Liverpool as Watford linked with defenderpublished at 14:42 21 January

    Mandeep Sanghera, BBC Sport

    Liverpool defender Nathaniel Phillips is attracting interest from a number of clubs and is expected to leave the Anfield club in a permanent move in January.

    The Reds value the 24-year-old at £15m and Watford have been linked with the centre-back.

    The expected departure of Phillips was a factor in Rhys Williams returning from his loan spell at Swansea.

    Phillips made 20 appearances, scoring once, for Liverpool last season as he helped them finish third in the Premier League and qualify for the Champions League.

    However, he has had just three first-team outings this term.
