“What really irked Klopp though was that the goal came in the same phase of play as Ollie Watkins forcing Alisson into a save from an offside position. The directive to delay the flag allowed the action to continue before Villa struck.

The irony of the situation is that Liverpool would have been better off had Alisson allowed the first shot from Watkins to beat him. If football’s lawmakers reconvene at some stage over the summer, the scrapping of the delayed offside flag should be first up on the day’s agenda.

Matip made amends moments later though when he stabbed home after Virgil van Dijk’s effort had been palmed into the six-yard box by Emi Martinez in the Villa goal.”

According to reports, Liverpool have made a ‘lucrative offer’ for Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni that could reach £60 million.

The 22-year-old is highly rated and Real Madrid are also keen on securing the signing.

Jurgen Klopp revealed last night that Fabinho may be ok to face Chelsea in the FA Cup final on Saturday after coming off with a hamstring injury in the win over Aston Villa.

“I don’t know,” said the Reds boss. “He felt a muscle, not too much. It was not the thigh, but the other side (hamstring). He is quite positive but I’m not sure what I can take of that, to be honest. We will see.

“I can’t say when he’ll be ready. Nobody has an answer for that. He has a good feeling and that gives me a better feeling than I had when I took him off.

“If you ask me now, I’d say leave Fabinho out (for this game) but I can’t turn that back. He was completely fine before the game.”

What do we make of the plans UEFA has for the Champions League?

Five places are now set to be awarded to the Premier League after controversial plans to hand places to the two clubs with the highest ranking had been scrapped.

With the live blog up and running, I’ll be bringing you news on a reported bid for Aurelien Tchouameni and an update on the apparent hamstring injury Fabinho suffered last night.

Jurgen Klopp said the injury wasn’t serious, but the midfielder was due to be assessed.

Tonight’s victory over Aston Villa means that Liverpool now only have two Premier League matches left to play this season.

After playing in the FA Cup final on Saturday, the Reds will travel to Southampton for their final away game of the season next Tuesday, May 17 before finishing their campaign at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Sunday, May 22.

Will it all end with the Premier League title? We shall see…

Phew! That was a nervy one.

Liverpool beat Aston Villa 2-1 to chalk up another vital three points that puts them behind City only on goal difference.

Manchester City will play their game in hand away to Wolves tomorrow. Over to you Pep…

We’re now less than an hour away from kick-off. If you want to stay up to date with all the action and get the team news (including some interesting changes), jump on our dedicated live match blog HERE.

Former Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing is set to leave Tranmere, the Birkenhead club has announced.

The Wallasey-born Reds Academy product joined Rovers before the start of the 2020/21 season and was an instant hit with fans, making over 80 appearances for the Super White Army.

Spearing made 45 first team appearances for Liverpool and played in the 2012 FA Cup Final against Chelsea before joining Bolton in 2013, where he became club captain.

The 33-year-old’s contract at Prenton Park is due to expire, with Micky Mellon expected to overhaul his squad after Tranmere’s promotion bid tailed off in the second half of the season.

Kostas Tsimikas has spoken the Liverpool’s official website ahead of tonight’s trip to Villa Park. Liverpool know only a victory will do after slipping up against Tottenham on Saturday and the Greek left-back insists that his teammates will approach the match with the right mindset.

He said: “It will be [a] very, very tough game. It will be [a] very intense game but, for me, we have to be us – to be exactly how we want to play. We have to be focused 100 per cent, we want to win and we will go for it. This is our mentality. This is in the goals we set from the start of the season and we will go for it.”

Three of Liverpool’s on-loan stars will not be able to play in any of the Reds’ remaining Premier League and Champions League fixtures this season.

Neco Williams has helped Fulham to clinch the Championship division title while Nat Phillips is also celebrating a Premier League promotion after his Bournemouth side finished the season as runners-up. But rules state that the pair can only play for their parent club if they had been recalled from their loan deals early.

The same applies to Sepp van den Berg, who has spent the season on loan with Preston North End. Phillips is also cup-tied after playing for Bournemouth in an earlier round of the FA Cup.

None of the three players are registered in Liverpool’s Champions League squad, so their seasons are effectively over.

Meanwhile Ben Davies will still be representing Sheffield United, as his loan club faces Nottingham Forest in the Championship play-offs. Ben Woodburn is set to play in the Scottish Cup Final for Hearts against Rangers on May 21.

Antonio Conte believes Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will see the 1-1 draw between the Reds and Tottenham Hotspur as a ‘point gained rather than two lost’. The draw saw Liverpool slip behind Manchester City in the race for the Premier League title.

After the game, Klopp wasn’t happy with the way Tottenham set up and thinks they could ‘do more’ in games to win them. Klopp has since admitted he regrets making the comments.

Conte has insisted his players were not happy after the match at Anfield on Saturday that they had only come away with a draw and not the full three points as they go in search of fourth place.

“Who knows me know very well that I want to win every game,” said Conte. “I transferred my thoughts to my players. For sure when I stay in one team, in one club, my aspiration is to win the title. To win the league in England is not easy. Guardiola said Liverpool only won one league title but maybe it’s easier to win the Champions League or other trophies.

“After Liverpool, the best answer I had was that the players were disappointed after the game because they had the chance to win. We analysed the game after and if there was one team that should have won the game it was Tottenham. I think Jurgen realised that Liverpool gained a point rather than losing two.

“It’s important to be focused on your team after the game rather than look for an alibi over what went wrong.”

More quotes from Jonathon Woodgate from BritishGambler.co.uk.

“I wouldn’t say Liverpool messed up as I was at the game and Tottenham were exceptional, and it was a tough game. I wouldn’t say Liverpool messed up but at this point of the season, we always expect Man City and Liverpool to get three points, and we think they’ve thrown the title away – they haven’t, because I think city will drop points towards the end of the season somewhere.

“I was at the Real Madrid game and Man city didn’t do a lot wrong, it was just a freak 5 minutes of injury time, it was just crazy. The only thing that disappointed me was that the only opportunity they had after going behind was Foden with the header. Man City have got over the psychological blow of Madrid, but I still think they will drop points somewhere before the end of the season.”

John Barnes spoke to BonusCodeBets about Liverpool’s match with Aston Villa tonight.

“Yeah, he’s really going to lie down and say they can beat them 6-0… of course not. He’s a professional, he wants his team to win.

“When Liverpool played Blackburn at the end of last season, and Manchester United would have won the league had they beaten them and they won and we beat Blackburn and Man United too.

“I’m sure that’s what Steven Gerrard will be hoping for. Hoping for a good result for his club Aston Villa and hoping when they play Man City, they can do Liverpool a favour. He won’t be lying down and his team will be high priority for the game, as you would expect.”

According to reports last night, Liverpool are said to be in ‘pole’ position to secure the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni from Monaco when the summer transfer window opens.

The Reds are keen on bringing a new midfielder to Anfield and the young French international is at the top of the list – Real Madrid are also said to be interested.

Former Liverpool star Philippe Coutinho is set to make his loan move from Barcelona to Aston Villa a permanent one in the summer after impressing during this spell at Villa Park.

Steven Gerrard being in charge at Villa Park was reported to be the deciding factor for the little attacker.

Kylian Mbappe has been spotted in Madrid and I doubt it was for a holiday.

The PSG star is close to being a free agent and his club are doing all they can to tie him down to a new contract so they don’t lose their most valuable asset to a European rival.
