Defensively, though, Liverpool were weak in both legs against Hoffenheim; they could easily have conceded more than three goals in the tie. At times, it feels as if Klopp has spent two years, and a lot of money, recreating the Liverpool team who nearly won the Premier League under Rodgers four seasons ago.
All of that offense backed starter Eduardo Rodriguez , who allowed one run on one hit through six innings to earn his first win since May 26. He struck out nine A's. Vazquez then doubled home a run and then scored on Jackie Bradley Jr.'s double. Jed Lowrie went 1 for 2 with a double while accounting for the lone A's run in the loss.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will also be an option to replace Mane and the attacking strength in depth Klopp now has at his disposal should ensure the absence of his most potent attacking threat is not fatal to his side's hopes.

Ederson , who reached the ball just in front of the pacy Senegalese winger, was left with no choice but to lead with his head ...

The best and worst of the 2017 Liverpool side were on show when they beat Hoffenheim in last month's play-off to reach the Champions League group stage. Klopp insisted after the Gunners game he had no qualms about swapping his goalkeepers - but it would be a major vote of confidence in his 24-year-old compatriot to prefer him for the club's return to Europe's elite competition.
Getting praise from Kagawa will be a pretty big deal for Ideguchi, the former Manchester United player is a superstar in Japan, with 1.4m followers on Twitter, over 1m on Instagram, and around 3m likes on Facebook. With the Japansese term scheduled to end on December 2, a move to Leeds could be finalized for Ideguchi before the winter transfer window closes, as Leeds would have had enough time needed to secure a work permit for the player, as he falls short of the F.A's points-based criteria ...

By way of a demonstration, not only were they three goals to the good by the midway stage of this Champions League encounter in Group B , but the spoils had been split evenly among their three attackers. He added: "Overall, as an 18-year-old coming into that he was excellent". Along with Cavani, a relative snip having joined in 2013 for €64 million, they terrorised a fragile Celtic rearguard, who were powerless as the French side poured forward.

Though she'll be facing off against the less experienced Rose Namajunas , this could be the biggest threat to her retaining the title, as the always improving Namajunas gets more unsafe with each time she steps her foot in the octagon.

Asked if he could evaluate Pogba's injury, Mourinho replied: "I don't know". "There were bad decisions, fantasy football, PlayStadium football, tricks". "I couldn't be more pleased with him".
