Really enjoyed doing this. Some tough calls considering the talents that #MCFC & #LFC’s recent title-winning sides both possess in abundance but think overall team is something of a happy medium

🤩🔴 @curtisjr_10 has signed a new long-term contract with the Reds 🙌

Genuinely feel for the sports staff at the Echo whenever articles like that appear. The football coverage is the only thing stopping it from becoming a glorified version of the women’s weeklies that end up cluttering GP surgery waiting rooms

Shops, pubs & restaurants reopen from tomorrow but Wetherspoons shouldn’t be among those receiving your hard-earned money. Its multimillionaire owner Tim Martin withheld wages from staff until after the Government’s furlough scheme. He also told them to ‘go work at Tesco’.

"We have to show responsibility, still. If we have to do something for the good of our loved ones, we will do it."

The boss spoke with Matt Ashton, @lpoolcouncil's Director for Public Health, about the importance of staying safe and responsible during these times 👊🔴

Klopp on #LFC youngsters "These questions will not be asked of Frank Lampard or Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. We win the league, now we have to play the youngsters? To win games, you need the best players on the pitch. We don't give Premier League games as a Christmas present”

Klopp “This season is a special season for us & in a challenging sort of way... every three days you play again and that’s really demanding. We have to really dig in in these situations” #LFC

Klopp on #MCFC defeat “I was not in too good mood after the game... this game we lost in key moments & in these key moments, City were better than us” #LFC #MCILIV

Ashton “Now is not the time for any of us to be complacent... Avoid crowds - they gave the potential for the virus to spread much more easily. On Sunday & for the rest of the season, watch the match at home. We can have a big party when this all over, but not now” #LFC
