A little over a year since Liverpool completed the £75 million signing of Southampton's Virgil van Dijk, many pundits who balked at the price have now been shown to look foolish. Emery has previously refused to say whether he was open to selling his star player, adding that Ozil's £300,000-a-week salary is not a factor in the decision.

"Especially when you want Aaron Ramsey in your team".

Porto already want to give Brazilian worldwide new deal to remove the relatively low buy-out clause and to increase his salary so he is not tempted to move on after just a few months.

A thrilling 5-1 victory over Arsenal on Saturday continued Liverpool's unbeaten Premier League streak and consolidated their position as leaders.

Speaking to the Mirror, van Dijk revealed that Sokratis' accusations of foul play from Salah triggered the half-time rough-housing, saying: "I saw that he went to Mo and was saying that he dived". Before we didn't do that.

There's a catch, though, as it requires a trade-in of an iPhone 7 Plus device launched two years ago. Months later, its budget iPhone- the iPhone XR-became the company's best selling iPhones this year.

"It is one decision tactically, and also the decision is because we have [done] it before because we have a lot of matches away when it tactically changes something, not for the player but for the team", Emery told a press conference.

"It's going be a good match, but it is not a decisive game or something like that".

"We will be prepared for a very tough game". We are not going to treat it different to any other.

Mustafi returned for the Liverpool game yet while the changes to the back-line have done nothing to help the team establish some stability, Bernd Leno insists injuries can not be used as an excuse following the Liverpool defeat. "As we have witnessed many times this season, Liverpool are in dire need of a centre-half".

"There are things to improve, but we are top of the league, still in the Champions League, and we are doing well, we just need to keep going".
