Klopp lauds Liverpool’s young talent after Blackburn humiliation

first_img read also:Klopp: We want to win everything this season “You see them – when Harvey [Elliott], Curtis [Jones] and Neco [Williams] played, it looked good as well. It’s coming, it’s nice and nice they are here and training with us. “The way we play helps the players to feel safe; everybody is defending and you should never feel alone in a big area where you have no chance to sort the situation. That’s what I really like and for the boys it was really good.” Following such a long break in play due to the coronavirus pandemic, Klopp felt the friendly was crucial ahead of Liverpool’s competitive return against Everton on June 21. “It was not only a workout; for us, it was a really important test and we wanted the players to go for 45 minutes [but] because of a few little issues we couldn’t do that, so we didn’t have enough ‘first-team players’, I would say, so that’s why we decided to let three players go for 60 minutes,” he said. “That’s ok. It looked really good, obviously. It looked really good, pretty much from the beginning. Yes, you have to get used again to playing against a deep-defending side and stuff like this. “Blackburn had a playing build-up from time to time, so we could work on the high press as well. So [the] counter-press was brilliant, the football was really good, the goals were nice and it was a really good afternoon. “I am really thankful that Blackburn came here and we could do that, so I wish them all the best.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 With the Reds preparing for the Premier League’s imminent return, they got the chance to sharpen up against Championship opposition. While Arsenal fell to a surprise 3-2 defeat against Brentford, there was no such slip up for Liverpool as they fired freely in front of goal. Leighton Clarkson, 18, bagged the Reds final goal in the comfortable win, with Klopp happy to see the club’s younger player showing their quality. “It is just so nice. Not only the goal but when you see the situations when he came on, I think the first pass was between the two strikers, he got it in the No.6 position where he is calm, turns and passes the ball out,” Klopp told Liverpool’s official website of Clarkson’s goal. “We can teach the boys a lot, but they have to bring a lot. Obviously the basis for Leighton is not too bad and Jake [Cain] did really well, as well. All of the boys. “For Sepp [Van den Berg] it is always hard for centre-halves. We have four, so sitting outside [but] he looks really promising in training sessions. Ki-Jana, centre-half and right-back and looks really good.

New Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin wants to climb table after win at Everton

first_imgNew Swansea head coach Francesco Guidolin believes six points in the first week of his arrival has given him plenty of hope they can escape relegation this season. “The first half and second half performance were very contrasting. “We created enough chances to win the game. The fearful aspect of our performance was a real shame.” The Toffees now have the worst home defensive record in the Premier League. “We haven’t found the right way of playing at home. That is the truth,” added Martinez. “The stats reflect a really poor defensive record at home. “We want to impress our fans, play attacking football and become a winning team but we are finding it tough to free ourselves.” England centre-back John Stones was at fault for Swansea’s first goal, leaving a backpass short, and had a poor game generally but Martinez defended the 21-year-old. “John is a young man who has a lot of pride in what he does,” he said. “What has happened with John and a few of our youngsters is they have been in the limelight and we forget they are young and need to be given space and time.” “Six points in two matches is very important for us because the table was not good,” he said. “Now it is not very good. I hope to have the possibility to go up in the table. “In this moment I am very happy. This is the first match in Premier League for me. “I dreamed of working in Premier League but I didn’t dream of winning the first match. “I must understand what happens in this day because I am surprised. It is new for me.” Gylfi Sigurdsson’s penalty was cancelled out by Jack Cork’s own goal after he diverted in Gareth Barry’s backheel before Andre Ayew’s deflected shot restored a lead the Swans comfortably held onto. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was critical of his players for the way they handed the initiative to their opponents, although the loss to injury of Muhamed Besic and Kevin Mirallas – ruling both out of Wednesday’s crucial Capital One Cup semi-final second leg at Manchester City – inside the first half-hour disrupted their plans. “We were very slow in our performance – pedestrian – but two aspects affected our momentum which was the two injuries,” he said. The Italian was in the stands for Monday’s victory over Watford but played his part to the full on the touchline in the 2-1 win over Everton at Goodison Park, registering the club’s first back-to-back wins of the season. Swansea are now four points clear of the bottom three and Guidolin is looking upwards. Press Associationlast_img read more
