Manchester City can have all the money in the world, but they can’t have a stadium, atmosphere or club like Liverpool. City are a great side and have a great manager, but that was proper football. That’s what it has all been about for as long as I can remember. Rival supporters love to describe Anfield as sort some of 'myth', but I have been there since the mid-60s and we wouldn’t have got the results we did over the years without the crowd. You go back to European games like Barcelona, Club Brugge, Dortmund and St-Etienne - it's the best 12th man in football by a mile.

Other teams can look at us with envy, and I think Man City are one of those. The one thing they haven't got is that. They had a better atmosphere when they were at Maine Road but those days are long gone. With the team City have got, they don’t even need an atmosphere at times because they are a great side. When you’ve spent billions, you just expect to be winning each week without the need to intimidate the opponent.


Lucas Leiva scored his first goal for Gremio since returning to the Brazilian Serie B club in the summer. The Brazilian international midfielder made the decision to return to hometown club Gremio at the end of his contract at Lazio in the Italian Serie A.

Italian capital club Lazio made a big transfer coup following the signing of Lucas Leiva on a free transfer after his contract at Premier League side Liverpool came to an end five years ago. The 35-year-old made another free transfer move to sign for Gremio in the summer.


Jurgen Klopp's Reds have endured a stuttering start to the new season and they are simply not the relentless team they were just a few months ago. Indeed, the 4-1 defeat in their Champions League opener summed up their recent struggles. However, it's not just in Europe where they have struggled though, with the Anfield giants already six points behind Premier League leaders Arsenal with six games player. Here, Mirror Football takes a look at precisely what is broken - and how Klopp can fix things .

1. The famous intensity has vanished
Astonishingly, Liverpool have been out run in every single match this season… and one of those by an incredible 7km. They are behind every opponent on distance covered, high intensity runs and sprints. For Klopp teams, that is anathema, as explosiveness across the pitch underpins his tactics. Is it a poor pre-season, new training methods, complacency or a mental thing? In no uncertain terms, the intensity has to return, and fast.
2. Big players are not performing


Brazilian midfielder Lucas Leiva is delighted with the impact made by new signing Darwin Nunez on Liverpool since his transfer to the club this summer. Lucas Leiva described Nunez as a brilliant player at the end of last month following his brilliant cameo against Premier League champions Manchester City in this year's Community Shield.

Lucas Leiva has remained a Liverpool fan since he left the club to sign for Lazio on a free transfer in the summer of 2017. He posted a video of his son celebrating the goal scored by Nunez during the Community Shield on his Twitter account and this led to the comment from a Liverpool fan who asked Lucas if he agrees with his opinion that Nunez looks good in the Reds shirt on the back of his performance against the Citizens in the aforementioned Community Shield. In his reply, Lucas Leiva agreed with the fan as he added that Nunez is a brilliant player.


After a relatively successful first year at Lazio, Maurizio Sarri now looks to continue developing his work with the Biancocelesti. On the pitch, Sarri has certainly implemented his vision of football over this first year. The quest now lies in further developing and enhancing these tactics in order to reach the elite of Italian football alongside the likes of Internazionale and AC Milan. Consequently, their recruitment in this transfer window now becomes essential in order to make this next step.

With the aim of improving the team’s performances, the board now looks for players that will elevate the squad’s quality while still adhering to Sarri’s tactics. Marcos Antônio is the first step in this journey, with the 22-year-old officially signing a five-year deal with Lazio this summer. For a fee of €8 million (plus €2 million in add-ons), the Brazilian midfielder joins Sarri’s side after three years with Shakhtar Donetsk.
