Liverpool is concerned about the fitness of their in-form forward Daniel Sturridge before Merseyside derby match with Everton. This season, Daniel relished a magnificent beginning. He picked up the deal leg while on nationals team’s responsibilities with England, but now there is a huge doubt regarding his availability against rivals Everton.
Brendan Rodgers confirmed the report during a press conference. He insisted that he former Chelsea player has a problem for several weeks and now this is just getting worse.
Rodgers told that he went to England with an injury. He had a dead leg for 3 – 4 weeks, and he has been playing through with it. He hardly trained when he left after the Fulham match. He added that the team would assess his fitness and they expect that he would be ready to play.
Brendan Rodgers said that Sturridge would guide him to decide whether he would be able to play or not. He would be asked by the coach whether how fit he is and he would be able to play or not. According to Brendon, managers are led by their players at times.
The Anfield club is already struggling with many injuries in their team with Jose Enrique joining the injured players’ list.
In the mean time, Steven Gerrard, the Liverpool captain, told that there would be a huge hole in his football career if he says good bye to the game without winning a English Premier League title.

Liverpool defender Daniel Agger was one of the names mentioned as possible transfer target for Barcelona in the summer. The Danish centre back is regarded as one of the finest in the world. He has been at Liverpool since January 2006, and it was thought that perhaps we would like a new challenge at this stage in his career.
The 28-year-old will also have a lot of opportunities to win trophies if he moves to Barcelona. However, the transfer rumours never materialised into serious business and Agger has been an important player for Liverpool this season. Continue reading ‘AGGER LINKEDrgb’

Liverpool suffered a second straight defeat in all competitions after a 1-0 defeat at the hands of arch rivals Manchester United. Before these two defeats, Liverpool were on a run that saw them proudly sit top of the table after a long time. However, the two back-to-back 1-0 defeats have taken the confidence out of the team. Manager Brendan Rodgers has said that he is happy with the way the season has so far turned out for the team. Even though he had brought in several new players in the summer, the former Swansea manager says that he is still not done with his purchases yet.
He is hoping to bring in some new players to the club in January, which is unlikely to go down well with the fans and owners. Several players including Victor Moses have arrived to the club during the summer. Even though they have made a good start, the last two defeats have made people stand up. Last season, the club finished a disappointing seventh in the Premier league under Rodgers. He said that Liverpool will definitely be able to challenge for top four this season, but he has now said that a top six position by January would be great for the team.
“The players have made an excellent start. We were disappointed at the weekend, we were a bit flat and subdued and just couldn’t really get going. Part of that was because of the players we have available, but I know that the players I have give absolutely everything. Now we can only concentrate on the league through to Christmas. We have to make sure we stay up in the top six in the league and keep fighting. Hopefully we can reinforce again in January,” said Rodgers, whose team play against Swansea during the weekend.

Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has said that any club looking to sign their striker Luis Suarez should be making a bid that is close to the valuation of the player. Arsenal have been the first club to make an official offer for the player. Their first bid of £ 30 million was instantly rejected by Liverpool, but Arsenal recently came in with a second offer. This time, their bid was £ 40 million plus £ 1. It is believed that Suarez has a clause in his contract that would allow him to talk with an interested club if they came in with an offer of more than £ 40 million.
As expected, Suarez has said that he wants to hold talks with Arsenal despite stating publicly on several occasions that his intention is to mainly leave England. The striker has apparently grown tired of the English media constantly criticising him, while the player also finds the English FA to be biased against him. The striker has suffered more than 15 matches of bans since his £ 25 million move from Ajax in 2011. Arsenal are extremely keen on signing him, but manager Brendan Rodgers has said that any club will want to match the club’s valuation of around £ 55 million in order to sign him.
“If Arsenal want the player, then they have to produce the value for the player. There was an offer a few weeks ago of £35 million and, two weeks later, it is now £40,000,001. I don’t think it is anywhere near the value of what he is worth. It is two-fold, really. A player may want to go, but then somebody has to pay the value or worth of that player. I am not worried about him [in that sense], but there will be no games played at Liverpool. He is part of the group,” said Rodgers.
