Jurgen Klopp explains why Xherdan Shaqiri starts over James Milner v Southampton

Xherdan Shaqiri was handed his first Liverpool start against Southampton (Picture: Getty)Jurgen Klopp has explained why he decided to hand Xherdan Shaqiri his first Liverpool start in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Southampton at Anfield.

Shaqiri, who joined Liverpool from Stoke City in the summer, replaces experienced midfielder James Milner in the Reds’ starting line-up.

Before today, the Switzerland international had only made three appearances for Liverpool, all from the bench.

But Klopp says Shaqiri is in ‘good shape’ and that he is ‘happy’ to be able to rotate his squad against the Saints.

Asked about Shaqiri’s full Liverpool debut, Klopp said: ‘He [has been] in a good shape since he [came] in actually.

‘I’m happy that we can make changes – not because we have [to] but because we can make them. That’s the reason for that.’

Ahead of the Premier League fixture, Klopp admitted he may have made a ‘mistake’ by not giving Shaqiri more game-time earlier in the campaign.

‘He is very positive, not only from the performances but as a guy in the dressing room,’ Klopp said.

‘Everyone loves Shaq, that is how it is – and without playing plenty of minutes.

‘That is more my mistake than his. He has done everything to play. I made different decisions but his time will come, that is for sure.’

Liverpool will hope to maintain their 100% record against Southampton, while the Saints will be looking for their second victory of the season.

Michael Owen’s Premier League predictions including Man Utd v Wolves & Arsenal v Everton

Michael Owen has made his predictions for this weekend’s Premier League action (Picture: Metro.co.uk)Brand Ambassador Michael Owen believes it will be a good weekend for the “big six” in the Premier League this weekend as he again shared his thoughts on all the weekend action exclusively with BetVictor.

Fulham vs Watford

Watford’s 100% start to the new season was ended by Man Utd last weekend (Picture: Getty)The hosts have conceded at least twice in all five Premier League games so far this season, but I feel they will pick up a point against a Watford side whose second half comeback against Manchester United on Sunday could, on another day, have brought them an unlikely point. Watford have lost their last eight Premier Leagues games in the capital, but they showed their mettle against United last weekend and no side has scored more goals (8) in the second half so far this term than the Hornets.

Michael’s Prediction: Fulham 1-1 Watford

Manchester United vs Wolves

Paul Pogba was back to his best last week (Picture: Getty)United have won their last six league games against Wolves at Old Trafford and I feel they will maintain that good record at the weekend although the Molineux outfit have quickly come to terms with the Premier League and should, arguably, be unbeaten so far this season. Jose Mourinho has never lost back-to-back home league games in his managerial career but, after three successive away wins, I expect his side to exorcise the demons of that defeat at the hands of Spurs last month. Wolves have taken a point against champions City and kept clean sheets in their own back-to-back wins in their last couple of games. This promises to be the game of the weekend and one I feel United will edge.

Michael’s Prediction: Manchester United 2-1 Wolves

Crystal Palace vs Newcastle

Wilfried Zaha scored Crystal Palace’s winning goal last weekend (Picture: Getty)Since the start of the 2016-17 season fouls on Wilfried Zaha have resulted in 41 yellow cards – more than any other player in the Premier League – and you could see and feel his frustration coming through the television when he spoke after last weekend’s Huddersfield game. The Ivorian has scored three of the Eagles’ four Premier League goals so far this term and Roy Hodgson needs goals from other avenues. The stats suggest if you stop Zaha you stop Palace. The former Manchester United wide-man cum striker missed the home game with Southampton this season – the result a 2-0 loss. Newcastle have played four of the “big six” clubs already this season and lost each game narrowly 2-1. I feel the time to assess United and their season-long prospects and expectations will not be for at least another month and I feel they can take a hard-earned point at Selhurst Park in a low-scoring contest.

Michael’s Prediction: Crystal Palace 0-0 Newcastle

Leicester vs Huddersfield

You can’t afford to leave early if you are a Leicester supporter with half of their eight Premier League goals scored so far this season in the 88th minute or later. That said I think they will have too much for the Terriers at the King Power Stadium given Town have won just one of their last 15 Premier League games and have not scored more than once in that time.

Michael’s Prediction: Leicester 2-0 Huddersfield

Cardiff vs Man City

Man City suffered a shock midweek defeat against Lyon (Picture: Getty)Cardiff were in the game for 80 minutes against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, but things are unlikely to get any easier for the Bluebirds when the champions come to town on Saturday. Cardiff are without a win in their last nine Premier League games and I expect Pep Guardiola’s side to heap further misery on Neil Warnock’s side with the champions likely to be wounded after their shock home Champions League defeat to Lyon midweek.

Michael’s Prediction: Cardiff 0-3 Man City

Liverpool vs Southampton

Mohamed Salah could be back in the goals this weekend (Picture: Getty)It was a pleasure to be at Anfield midweek where Liverpool were good value for their 3-2 win over PSG in the Champions League. The Reds are unbeaten in their last 23 home Premier League games and I will be surprised if Southampton can stop the Red juggernaut. Jurgen Klopp may shuffle his pack against the Saints and I expect to see Naby Keita restored to the starting XI. I feel the Reds midfielder has goals in his locker and may break his Liverpool duck if given the nod.

Michael’s Prediction: Liverpool 4-0 Southampton

Burnley vs Bournemouth

Burnley have never lost five games in a row in the Premier League and will be desperate to arrest their current run of poor results. Better teams than the Clarets will lose at Molineux this season, but it was the manner of their defeat which was so alarming last weekend. The Cherries have, however, only kept one clean sheet in their last 14 Premier League games on the road and I think Sean Dyche’s side will get a positive result – although they may have to settle for a point.

Michael’s Prediction: Burnley 1-1 Bournemouth

Brighton vs Tottenham

Tottenham have lost three in a row for the first time ever under Mauricio Pochettino (Picture: Getty)You have to go back to April 1983 for the last time Brighton beat Spurs and I expect a much-improved performance from Spurs than the one who played so poorly at Wembley last weekend. Mauricio Pochettino’s side conceded two late goals in the San Siro in the Champions League midweek. They must roll their sleeves up and show their mettle and quality at the Amex, but it won’t be easy against a side who have come from two goals down to take a point in their last two games.

West Ham vs Chelsea

Eden Hazard is in the form of his life at the moment (Picture: Reuters)I watched West Ham’s win at Goodison at the weekend and thought it was an excellent result for the Hammers although it is fair to say that on the day Everton were there for the taking. West Ham have lost more Premier League London derbies than any other club and I feel Maurizio Sarri will become just the third Premier League manager to win his first six games in the competition after Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola. That said I expect the hosts to give them a real game in what should be a cracking derby.

Michael’s Predication: West Ham 1-3 Chelsea

Arsenal vs Everton

Arsenal have recovered from their poor start to win four in a row (Picture: Getty)This is a fixture that invariably produces goals and Everton’s two away games so far this season have finished 2-2. I think Blues boss Marco Silva would take a point now although the Gunners have not drawn any of their last 21 Premier League games (W11 L10). This current Arsenal side, as good as they are on the eye, will always give you a chance and I expect Everton to find the back of the net at the Emirates, but Bruce Rioch was in charge of the Gunners (January 1996) the last time they lost at home to Everton. Unai Emery will need time to mould an Arsenal side that could challenge for the title, but I do expect the Gunners to win another game that promises plenty of opportunities and goals.

Michael’s recommendation: Arsenal 3-1 Everton

Michael’s weekend wager: Leicester, Chelsea and Arsenal at 3/1Michael Owen is a Brand Ambassador for BetVictor. For more of Michael’s tips read his column here.

Michael Owen’s Premier League predictions, including Tottenham v Liverpool, Manchester United and Arsenal

Michael Owen has made his predictions for this weekend’s Premier League action (Picture: Metro.co.uk)As the first international break of the 2018-19 season comes to an end, Michael Owen has delivered his Premier League predictions for the weekend.

Joint-leaders Liverpool travel to Tottenham in Saturday’s early kick-off, while reigning champions Manchester City, Chelsea and Arsenal are all in action from 3pm.

Manchester United face Watford in the late game on Saturday evening, while struggling Burnley and West Ham are among the teams in action on Sunday.

More: Football

Tottenham v Liverpool

This is a real test of Liverpool’s title credentials and a win at Wembley will go a long way to proving their doubters wrong.

With a star-studded side full of attacking options the Reds are almost always guaranteed to score and will look to heap more misery on the hosts who were beaten at Watford last time out.

Liverpool have made an excellent start to the new season (Picture: Getty)Dele Alli hopes to be fit for the Londoners after missing England’s game with Switzerland and although Harry Kane was quiet against Spain he is still the go to man for his club.

Whether Spurs can stop a rampaging Liverpool forward line looks unlikely, however, and five wins on the bounce for Jurgen Klopp’s side beckons.

Michael’s Prediction: Tottenham 1-2 Liverpool

Bournemouth v Leicester

Bournemouth were well beaten at Chelsea before the International break but are a much tougher opponent on home soil.

There is usually a partisan atmosphere and the tight little Vitality Stadium generates a terrific atmosphere.

Leicester should welcome back star striker Jamie Vardy from suspension and after tough games with Manchester United and Liverpool the Foxes will fancy themselves on the South Coast.

Leicester have won two and lost two so far this term (Picture: Getty)They should be looking for maximum points if they wish to challenge for a top six berth but just look a little short of squad depth to perhaps make that leap at present.

Sitting on the fence I envisage a share of the spoils.

Michael’s Prediction: Bournemouth 1-1 Leicester

Chelsea v Cardiff

Maurizio Sarri is certainly changing the way Chelsea approach their football and his refreshing attacking attitude is already making him a fans favourite at the Bridge.

Indeed, Chelsea have attempted and completed more passes than any other side in the Premier League so far this season.

Maurizio Sarri has already made a significant impact at Chelsea (Picture: Getty)Their perfect start to the season is likely to be maintained on Saturday against a Cardiff side without a win in six in all competitions.

The Bluebirds did well to reach the top-flight, but the truth is they look set for a quick return and it is likely to be a long afternoon for Neil Warnock’s side at the Bridge.

Michael’s Prediction: Chelsea 4-0 Cardiff

Huddersfield v Crystal Palace

Without the injured Wilfried Zaha Crystal Palace suffered a surprise home reverse against Southampton in their last game and have failed to build on an opening day win over Fulham.

The Eagles are likely to have the Ivorian international available for their trip to Huddersfield, however, and it should be noted that they have won all three top-flight away games between the sides without conceding a goal.

Crystal Palace have been reliant on Wilfried Zaha (Picture: Getty)Huddersfield are yet to taste victory so far this term but picked up a useful point at Goodison before the International break although scoring goals is likely to be a problem for the Terriers this term.  I feel Palace will secure a narrow success.

Michael’s Prediction: Huddersfield 0-1 Crystal Palace

Manchester City v Fulham

The Citizens will be looking for goals when they host new boys Fulham and there have been 16 goals scored in the Cottagers’ four Premier League games to date.

Fulham have already shipped nine times in those four games although in Alexsandar Mitrovic – who scored twice, one a cracker for Serbia midweek – they have a striker at the top of his game.

Manchester City have been backed to thrash Fulham (Picture: Getty)Indeed, the Serb has scored 16 league goals since his Fulham debut in February – more than any other in the top two divisions of English football.

That said I expect City to put behind a couple of indifferent performances against Wolves and Newcastle and gain an emphatic success.

Michael’s Prediction: Manchester City 5-1 Fulham

Newcastle v Arsenal

Newcastle start the weekend in the bottom three and are yet to win, but the fixture list has not been kind to United and they look to have some easier looking fixtures after the visit of Arsenal.

Indeed, I still believe The Toon will move clear of the drop zone and it would be no surprise to me if they again finished the season in the top half.

Arsenal have yet to convince and often looked shaky at Cardiff despite running out 3-2 winners.

Mesut Ozil looks set to make his first appearance at St James’ Park (Picture: Getty)Two defeats from four outings is hardly top 4 form, however and the Gunners are already looking more like a top six outfit than one who will challenge for a Champions League spot – at least this season.

Newcastle won the corresponding fixture 2-1 last season and the Gunners have not won back-to-back away Premier League games since May 2017. I do not expect the Magpies to lose.

Michael’s Prediction: Newcastle 1-1 Arsenal

Watford v Manchester United

Watford couldn’t have wished for a better start to the season and manager Javi Gracia, who had been favourite to be the first Premier League manager to lose/leave his post, was a worthy winner of the Manager of the Month for August.

Watford fans will be hoping that is not the kiss of death, but there looks no reason to desert the Hornets just yet.

United got a valuable win at Turf Moor last time but they won’t relish a trip to Vicarage Road and I expect the resurgent hosts to get at least a point from the game.

Michael’s Prediction: Watford 1-0 Manchester United

There has been speculation over Jose Mourinho’s future at Manchester United (Picture: Getty)Wolves v Burnley

Wolves have made a good start to life back in the top flight and a late winner at West Ham has given them a platform to consolidate.

They took a useful point at home to the Champions in their previous game at Molineux and they will be relishing the visit of Burnley at the weekend.

Owen expects Burnley’s struggles to continue (Picture: Getty)Wolves are without a win in their last 14 Premier League games at Molineux but have only lost two of 28 home league games under Nuno Espirito Santo and the Clarets have lost five of their last six away Premier League games.

Things are likely to get worse before they get better for Sean Dyche’s side.

Michael’s Prediction: Wolves 1-0 Burnley

Everton v West Ham

Everton were disappointing against Huddersfield last time when they missed the skills of the suspended Richarlison who scored twice on his Brazil debut against El Salvador midweek.

The Blues must again do without the exciting Brazilian against West Ham this weekend, but I feel Marco Silva’s side can keep the points.

Manuel Pellegrini is already under pressure at the London Stadium (Picture: Getty)Everton have won more Premier League games against the Hammers (24) than any other club and Manuel Pellegrini will become the first West Ham manager to lose their first five league games of the season in their history if they lose at Goodison.

With Chelsea to come next weekend this is a massive game for the Irons, but I feel the points will stay on Merseyside.

Michael’s Prediction: Everton 2-0 West Ham

Southampton v Brighton 

These South Coast rivals look well matched and should provide an intriguing contest for Monday Night viewers to enjoy.

The Saints took the bragging rights with a narrow 1-0 success away in the League Cup recently but will need to improve their home form to make an impact this campaign.

Southampton host Brighton on Monday night (Picture: Getty)Brighton will be delighted with four points from a tough opening set of fixtures and after a tremendous comeback from 2-0 down at home to Fulham to rescue a point, look full of fight this time around.

Glenn Murray bagged a brace in that stirring fightback and looks key to Albion’s hopes.  I think they will do enough to add another point to their tally at St Mary’s.

Michael’s Prediction: Southampton 1-1 Brighton

Arsenal have a tough start to their campaign when they host Man City this afternoon.

They finished last season in sixth place, seven points behind their nearest rival Chelsea, but with Unai Emery as they’re new manager they’ll be hoping for a change in fortune.

Manchester City weren’t as dominant in the transfer window this summer, but they did bring in Riyad Mahrez who could prove to be a crucial player this season.

Pep Guardiola’s side won both league matches against Arsenal last season, as well as getting a 3-0 win in the League Cup final.

Full details of Danny Ings’ Southampton loan revealed with Liverpool set to net £20m

The striker is returning to the south coast on an initial loan (Picture: Getty)Southampton have completed the signing of Liverpool striker Danny Ings on an initial loan, though the south-coast club will be required to make the deal permanent next summer.

The 26-year-old, who has struggled to make an impact at Anfield after a serious injury, moved back to the south coast on Thursday’s transfer deadline day – having begun his career at Bournemouth despite being a Saints fan as a kid.

Although the deal is initially a loan, the Liverpool Echo report that Southampton will be obliged to pay a minimum £18million on July 1, 2019.

The fee is variable though, and the Saints could be required to pay a further £2m in appearance-related add-ons, while Liverpool also have a 20% sell-on clause.

Speaking about the deal, Mark Hughes told Southampton’s website: ‘There was significant competition for Danny, with a lot of clubs keen to complete a deal for him, so we’re clearly delighted that he chose to join us.

More: Football

‘We have admired him for some time now, not only for his ability, but also his character and personality, which we feel will be an ideal fit in our dressing room.

‘He’s obviously a local boy, who gives us another excellent option up front.

Ings had been chased by a host of Premier League sides this summer (Picture: Getty)‘He didn’t get to play as much as he would have liked at Liverpool, but he has been injury-free for some time now and has a real point to prove.

‘It’s a great boost for us on the eve of the season to bring another quality player into the squad, and we’re excited about what he can bring to the group.’

What time does the transfer window close on Thursday and when does it close across Europe?

Kepa Arrizabalaga is expected to move to Chelsea before the transfer deadline (Picture: Getty Images)We are now counting down till the end of the transfer window in hours rather than days with the deadline looming on Thursday evening.

Premier League and EFL clubs have precious little time left to bring in the players they need for the coming months, with another opportunity not arising until the January window.

However, they can still sell players to clubs abroad because English clubs have brought their transfer deadline forward, but it remains at the end of August across Europe.

Here is everything you need to know about when transfers will come to a close for the summer…

Could Paul Pogba leave Manchester United this summer? (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close in the Premier League and the EFL?

All the top four flights in England see their transfer windows close at 5pm BST on Thursday, 9 August.

Premier League clubs will not be able to complete loan deals or sign free agents after this deadline either.

Football League clubs will be able to do both until the end of August, though.

Jack Grealish is being heavily linked with a move from Aston Villa to Tottenham (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer deadline close across Europe?

Most of the big European leagues see their transfer windows close on 31 August.

In Spain, France, Germany, Scotland, Russia, Turkey, Belgium and others, their transfer deadlines are on 31 August.

However, there are some notable exceptions, with Italy’s closing on 17 August, Sweden’s on 11 August and Netherlands on 3 September.

Can foreign teams still buy Premier League players after the transfer window closes?

Paul Pogba’s future is in doubt (Picture: PA)The Premier League made the bold step of moving the dates of the transfer window quite significantly this year, and it could have a big impact long past when the deadline passes in England.

The summer transfer has been slamming shut at the end of August in recent years, but the Premier League clubs voted to move it earlier, so it closed when the season started.

With the campaign beginning on the evening of Friday, 10 August 2018, the transfer window will close at 5pm on Thursday, 9 August.

But with foreign clubs not closing their transfer windows at this point, does that mean they can still buy players from English clubs after 9 August?

Thibaut Courtois looks set to leave Chelsea (Picture: AP Photo)Yes, it does.

Whilst Premier League and EFL clubs won’t be able to buy players past their 5pm deadline on Thursday, they will still be prone to having their players whisked away to foreign climes.

Clubs across Europe will be able to buy players until their deadlines past, which mostly fall on 31 August.

English clubs are going to be much less likely to sell their best players as they will not be able to bring in replacements, but the deals are very much able to be done.

Anthony Martial could still be out of the Old Trafford exit door (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close across Europe?

In Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Scotland, Netherlands and Russia the transfer deadline is on 31 August.

In Portugal, the transfer window doesn’t close until 22 September, whilst Turkey closes on 8 September.

Premier League Ins and Outs: Every completed transfer so far this summer

There have been some big moves and there are more to come before the deadline (Picture: Getty Images/ metro.co.uk)The transfer window slams shut on Thursday evening for Premier League clubs, so we are set for a wild few hours as last minute deals are done across the country.

There have been some huge signings so far, with Alisson arriving at Liverpool, Jorginho landing at Chelsea and Riyad Mahrez swapping Leicester for Manchester City, to name a few.

There are some more potential massive moves in the pipeline as well, so we can expect some drama in the transfer marker before Thursday’s 5pm deadline.

When does the transfer window close and why is it early this year?

There have been some big moves so far this summer (Picture: Metro/Getty Images)The Premier League is back this week and after a change to the schedule this season, that means the transfer window will be slamming shut.

Not wanting to be distracted by trying to complete transfers when the season starts, Premier League clubs voted to close the transfer window much earlier than in previous years.

EFL clubs followed suit, meaning that no English clubs will be able to bring in players after this week.

But when exactly is the transfer window closing?

Lucas Torreira is a new arrival at Arsenal (Picture: Getty)The transfer window closes at 5pm BST on Thursday, 9 August 2018.

This is over 24 hours before the Premier League season starts on Friday, 10 August when Manchester United host Leicester City at Old Trafford, kicking-off at 8pm.

The Championship, League One and League Two have all begun already, but their windows will also close at 5pm on Thursday.

Richarlison has swapped Watford for Everton (Picture: Getty Images)The Premier League clubs voted to move the end of the transfer window to the start of the season with 14 clubs in favour, five against and one abstention.

The five votes against came from Manchester City, Manchester United, Crystal Palace, Watford and Swansea.

When the EFL clubs came to vote on doing the same thing, 40 voted in favour and 29 against.

Fred has been Manchester United’s biggest signing of the summer so far (Picture: Getty Images)When does the transfer window close across Europe?

In Spain, Italy, France, Germany, Scotland, Netherlands and Russia the transfer deadline is on 31 August.

In Portugal, the transfer window doesn’t close until 22 September, whilst Turkey closes on 8 September.
