Stevie, Ox, Mo… A Thursday Roundup

Liverpool play Real Madrid in the Champions League final on May 26 (I bet you didn’t know that), and as expected, various people are having their say on the affair.

Steven Gerrard, the recently appointed Glasgow Rangers manager, says the Reds aren’t really the underdogs in this game, but they should play it like they are. The man who inspired that famous comeback and lifted that trophy in 2005 believes Klopp’s team has what it takes to go all the way and repeat that feat.

Gerrard adds that he understands why the manager and the players should approach the game from an underdog perspective, as it takes a bit of pressure off the shoulders. He says on the form the team are at the moment, especially with Mo Salah, they can do it.

By drawing against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last night, David Wagner and his Huddersfield Town have secured Premier League survival for themselves and some pressure has already been lifted from Liverpool, as the Reds now only need a point at home against Brighton & Hove on Sunday to stamp their participation in the Champions League again next season.

Speaking of Mo, the man has won the Standard Chartered Player of the Month award for the seventh time this season. The man has scored 31 Premier League goals, and if he scores on Sunday, he’ll set a new league record in a 38-game system. Not bad for a Chelsea reject, right?

The story of Mo and the gang soon being fed passes by Lyon’s Nabil Fekir has been dismissed by his father, according to various reports.

Mohamed Fekir says his son has no deal in place with Liverpool and feels if he had, he would have informed his father. He says Nabil’s dream is to play in the Champions League with Lyon.

Make of it what you will , but I distinctly remember the father of Marko Grujić saying similar things ahead of his move from Red Star Belgrade.

And I’ve saved the best piece of news for the end:
