One Liverpool star widely targeted following Arsenal stalemate

‘He’s just not good enough’: One Liverpool star widely targeted following Arsenal stalemate

 

Liverpool’s supporters have flooded to social media this evening, to highlight their frustrations with one member of the club’s frontline.

Arsenal stand tall

Jurgen Klopp’s men marked their return to action a short time ago.

After cruising into the 4th-round of the FA Cup at the expense of minnows Shrewsbury at the weekend, the Reds tonight welcomed Arsenal to Anfield, hoping to take a significant step towards the finale of the Carabao Cup, in the rescheduled first-leg of their tie with the Gunners.

And, when Granit Xhaka was given his marching orders inside 25 minutes for a last-man challenge on Diogo Jota, Liverpool looked well on their way to precisely that:

Unfortunately for Klopp and co., however, when all was said and done, they simply couldn’t manage to produce the one moment of quality required to secure a first-leg advantage.

A stout Arsenal backline, led by the near faultless Ben White, ultimately stood tall, to keep themselves firmly in the tie ahead of next week’s return leg in north London.

‘Not good enough’

Whilst the Gunners will no doubt return to base in the capital delighted with a superb result on Thursday evening, though, back on Merseyside, the inquest will now get underway.

Though they were unable to call on the talents of star attackers Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane versus Arsenal, the near full-strength XI called upon by Jurgen Klopp should nevertheless have simply had too much for a depleted Arsenal outfit.

In turn, on the back of the action coming to a close on Thursday night, it should not come as all that much of a surprise to hear of the Liverpool faithful being up in arms.

The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, James Milner and Diogo Jota have all been singled out for deserved criticism, owing to hugely underwhelming individual displays.

None, however, has been more widely targetted than the seldom-utilised Takumi Minamino.

This comes after the Japanese international, with the goal at his mercy, fluffed a glorious chance to bag an all -important Liverpool winner amid the closing exchanges at Anfield:

Minamino, as a result, has since been widely singled out as simply ‘not good enough’, with just some of the highlights from across social media showcased below:

Bruno Guimaraes set to undergo medical after Lyon accept Newcastle bid

Bruno Guimaraes set to undergo medical after Lyon accept Newcastle bid

A fresh update on Newcastle’s pursuit of Lyon midfielder Bruno Guimaraes has emerged on Wednesday.

Newcastle’s interest in the Brazilian was first reported on Tuesday evening.

It was claimed at the time that Newcastle had submitted a €36m bid for the South American:

And now, it has been reported by Sky that Newcastle have agreed a fee with Lyon for Guimaraes, which is believed to be in the region of £30m.

Elsewhere, David Ornstein is reporting that Guimaraes is set to undergo a medical in Ecuador where he is currently on international duty:

Newcastle still need to improve

Should the Guimaraes deal get over the line, which now seems likely, the Brazilian will be Newcastle’s 3rd signing of the January window after Kieran Trippier and Chris Wood.

All three players are solid additions and should prove valuable to Eddie Howe as he fights to keep the club in the Premier League.

However, it remains obvious that Newcastle still need to bring in a centre-back this month.

The Tyneside outfit are currently in possession of the second-worst defence in the Premier League, only behind Norwich.

Newcastle, though, have struggled to get a deal for a centre-back done.

Arsenal-linked right-back admits he is likely to leave current club

Arsenal-linked right-back admits he is likely to leave current club

Arsenal look to have been put on red alert as a player believed to be of interest to the Gunners has all but confirmed he wants to leave his current side.

The player in question is Ajax and Morocco standout, Noussair Mazraoui.

Mazraoui, 24, would join Ajax’s youth ranks as a child back in 2006. He has since worked his way up to their senior side where he has featured 125 times, scoring 10 and assisting eight in the process.

The full-back has been in especially good form this term, scoring five and assisting two in 16 league outings for Ajax.

Now, though, it looks as though Mazraoui’s time with the Dutch powerhouse could be coming to an end.

The 12-time capped international is out of contract this coming summer. And now, when asked if he could sign an extension at Ajax, Mazraoui stated that there is a small chance he could stay put, but he thinks that it is a good moment for him to leave Ajax: “That’s a good question. I think the chances of me remaining at Ajax are very small, maybe 5%.

“I am open for something new, I have played here for 16 years and I think it’s a good moment to leave.”

Should Arsenal sign Mazraoui?

The same source that provided the Mazraoui quotes also claimed that Arsenal are interested in the African.

But should Arsenal be looking to sign him? The Gunners could certainly do with some competition at right-back for Takehiro Tomiyasu.

However, due to Mikel Arteta’s asymmetrical system, Arsenal generally need a right-back who can slot into a back-three when his side are attacking and is somewhat comfortable being used as a makeshift centre-back.

But as Mazraoui is a fairly attack-minded option, perhaps he may not fit this role.

Newcastle dealt double transfer blow and Bruno Guimaraes latest

Newcastle dealt double transfer blow and Bruno Guimaraes latest

Newcastle United are expected to be busy in the final week of the transfer window, and it may be a case of holding onto their hats for much of the Magpie fanbase.

However, with 5 days left until the deadline, Eddie Howe and co. have been dealt a double defensive transfer blow.

This comes initially as Brighton have rejected the newly-rich club’s bid for Dan Burn, thought to have been around 10 million pounds.

However, they are expected to return with a second bid, although it remains unclear just how far they are willing to go in order to secure the in-form Seagull.

On another disappointing note, it appears as though their pursuit of Robin Gosens has come to an unfortunate end, with Inter Milan having reached a deal to take him to the San Siro for a fee of 25 million euros.

This could see Newcastle look elsewhere for defensive reinforcements, but there is better news further up the pitch.

Bruno Guimaraes latest

Now, Lyon have put out a statement categorically denying that any agreement had been reached.

However, the club are regular exponents of this negotiation tactic: similar statements went out around Ferland Mendy and Alexandre Lacazette before both departed the club.

And, as per the reliable David Ornstein, the Brazilian is set to undergo a medical while on international duty ahead of a move to Tyneside.

If completed, it would be quite the statement signing under the new regime, given that just six months ago the Magpies could not stump up the loan fee for Hamza Choudury.
