The bill shows the qualities Liverpool lack.

Bournemouth have plenty of contenders for the Player of the Year award at the Vitality Stadium, Dango Ouattara is one, Marcos Senesi and Lloyd Kelly are among the others, but Philip Billing has as strong a claim as anyone. other

It was the Dens’ second goal in a week after he netted within 10 seconds against Arsenal. has been medically examined Even if it’s Liverpool’s goal. And this is just one of many catchy moments.

Billing spent just 69 minutes on the pitch before being substituted in the second half. His early withdrawal was a testament to how he sprinted to the ground in pursuit of victory. But Premier League tracking data shows he maintains a higher intensity sprint (22) than anyone else at Liverpool.

In fact, only one player from either side – Ouattara – beat his total. “We have to work hard,” Billing said in a post-game TV interview. Who is he that exemplifies that diligence? Liverpool want a midfielder like him right now.

RB Leipzig celebrated a successful dress rehearsal for the Champions League cracker at Manchester City at the explosive and emotionally charged reunion of Max Eberl with his former club Borussia Mönchengladbach.

On Saturday, the 100th day of Eberl’s tenure, the DFB Cup winner won 3-0 (0-0) against Gladbach, who had recently been weakening.

Eberl, who left Gladbach in January 2022 after 23 years as a player and sports director and finally joined RB last December, followed the goals of Timo Werner (58th), Emil Forsberg (71st, penalty kick) and Josko Gvardiol (80th minute). ) in the stands next to former RB managing director Oliver Mintzlaff. RB goalkeeper and ex-Gladbacher Janis Blaswich (53rd) also saved a penalty after video evidence from Alassane Plea.

Leipzig strengthens CL place
The people of Leipzig, who continue to have their sights set on the premier class ranks in the Bundesliga, are going into the round of 16 second leg of the Champions League at City on Tuesday (9 p.m. / Prime Video) with a tailwind, where they are after the 1-1 draw in the first Duel create the big surprise and want to move into the top eight in Europe.

While Eberl warmly greeted his former employees on the Gladbach side before the game, the away fans who had traveled with him received him less warmly. “Eberl is a son of a bitch,” they sang when he was in the run-up to the TV interview. And the 49-year-old criticized the followers in turn.

“I made no secret of the fact that I was ill. If this topic is then simply negated and it is simply summarized as a change from Gladbach to Leipzig, it is simply wrong,” said Eberl on Sky: “It happens from people, put the others in their crosshairs, run through the cities with iron bars and light fires.”

Fans are railing against Eberl again
The Gladbach ultra group Sottocultura had previously described Eberl as a “character pig” who had switched “to the evil side of football”. At the same time, with reference to Eberl’s burnout diagnosis, which caused him to turn his back on Gladbach, the group wrote about “his invented ‘disease’, which then coincidentally and appropriately paved the way for him to Leipzig”.

On Saturday, the fans also added banners. “Empty words only for appearances, for us only a bull pig” or “Miracle healing by Red Bull. When lying becomes a business model” was read in the block. But the game in the first round also offered a lot in terms of sport.

Gladbach misses good chances
Leipzig relied on possession but struggled to create chances, carelessly inviting the visitors on several occasions. First Marcus Thuram (10th) failed from an acute angle at Blaswich, before Werner (11th) shortly afterwards checked Gladbach’s keeper Tobias Sippel on the other side – then Willi Orban’s blackout followed. Leipzig’s captain left Thuram (33rd) in a dangerous position, whose shot went just over the bar.

Even after the break, Gladbach continued to have chances that RB gave them too easily. Jonas Hofmann ran towards the goal completely alone and was only straddled at the last moment by Leipzig’s David Raum. Referee Matthias Jöllenbeck initially saw no foul, corrected himself after viewing the video images, with Blaswich suspecting the right corner at the penalty and parrying Plea. Only five minutes later, Werner refined a wonderful solo with a powerful shot under the crossbar. Forsberg then raised after Plea brought down Amadou Haidara in the sixteen. Gvardiol put the finishing touches.
