Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has admitted that he is concerned with the high defensive line from the Reds as they prepare to host Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side are currently top of the table with the perfect tally of six points after the opening two games and this has only been replicated by the Gunners, who are just behind them on goal difference.

The Reds have had the better of the Gunners in the last three meetings at Anfield where they have beaten them 3-1, 4-0 and 5-1 respectively but Carragher anticipates a much challenging contest this time around.

While Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino are bound to test the Gunners’ defensive resolve, Carragher is also concerned with the Reds’ high line against the pace and clinicalness of the Gunners’ attack.

Speaking on the Reds’ defensive shape, he told Sky Sports: “I don’t like it and I think they’ve been lucky and fortunate at different times this season to get away with it.”

The former England international added that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Alexandre Lacazette and Nicolas Pepe are bound to offer a different challenge to the Reds backline, which has regularly sought to play the offside trap.

Chelsea receive injury boost with attacker returning to training

Hudson-Odoi returns to regular training


Chelsea have received a much-needed injury boost with Callum Hudson-Odoi returning to first-team training following his recovery from an Achilles problem.

The England international picked up the injury during the month of April and he thereafter went through a surgery which has ruled him out of action to date.

However, it appears that he is on course to make a comeback by the middle of September after joining his teammates in regular training for the first time this season.

Hudson-Odoi has less than 12 months remaining on his existing deal with the Blues and so far, he has shown no indication whether he would be willing to extend his stay.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has remained positive when asked about the potential contract renewal but Hudson-Odoi may wait for a couple of months to assess whether he can command a regular role under the new manager.

Chelsea have managed to secure the single point after the opening two league games of the season. They are scheduled to face Norwich City on the road this weekend.

Football Transfer Centre


Barcelona playmaker Philippe Coutinho is understood to have rejected the option to join Tottenham Hotspur prior to the Premier League transfer deadline. The Brazil international was widely fancied to return to the English top-flight before the 5pm deadline on Thursday and he was offered to the likes of Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

According to AS, Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had sought to lure Coutinho back to England and he made a personal one-on-one phone call to the 27-year-old.

However, the Brazilian decided to snub advances from his former Espanyol head coach, considering he wanted to remain loyal to Jurgen Klopp‘s side by not signing with a Premier League rival.

Coutinho has seemingly fallen down the pecking order at the Camp Nou following the big-money purchase of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.

Still, he continues to remain optimistic about his chances of succeeding with the Blaugrana and appears set to fight for his position rather than pursuing a move to another elite European outfit.
