5 key matches for Liverpool

Sadio Mane a good fit for Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool system

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol reacts to Liverpool's latest signing Sadio Mane and what he can offer Jurgen Klopp's side.

Despite his lofty transfer fee, Sadio Mane isn't a signing that will set Liverpool supporters' pulses racing. But Kopites can be encouraged that the club's pursuit of the player was driven by manager Jurgen Klopp, who seemed determined to add the Senegal man to his squad regardless of cost.

Mane became the third-most expensive signing in Liverpool's history when he arrived in a £30million deal from Southampton earlier this week. Unlike the only two players who cost more than him, Andy Carroll...

Is Sadio Mane another extravagant investment in potential for Liverpool?

Sadio Mane fires past Simon Mignolet for Southampton vs. Liverpool.

Southampton's Sadio Mane is set to join Liverpool for a large fee, reputed to be around the £30 million mark. This could be just the beginning of a major overhaul for a club that has disappointed in the Premier League for all but one of this decade's seasons.

There is, however, the haunting possibility it is yet another example of Liverpool throwing cash at a problem and hoping some mud will stick to the wall. It certainly sent a few eyebrows skywards that the Reds were again raiding Southampton...

Liverpool could sell Joe Allen to grant Euro 2016 star first team football

The ESPN FC crew discuss the release of the 2016-17 Premier League fixtures.

It was "Joe Allen appreciation day" earlier this week. The hashtag was trending worldwide on Twitter as Liverpool supporters paid tribute to the midfielder who has been in terrific form for Wales at Euro 2016. Sadly for fans of the Welshman, Allen already appears to have had his day at Liverpool and could move on this summer.

The Reds' failure to qualify for Europe next season makes it difficult for the 26-year-old to stay, while his contract situation means Liverpool may want to cash in while they...

Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge struggling to find his England groove

England were only able to manage a scoreless draw against Slovakia and finish second in Group B.
England manager Roy Hodgson laments his side's inability to convert chances for the third consecutive game following their scoreless draw against Slovakia.
ESPN FC's Mike Tirico, Roberto Martinez and Michael Ballack provide their first thoughts on the final Group B standings.
ESPN FC's Roberto Martinez and Michael Ballack address the continued lack of consistency in England's starting lineup.
ESPN FC's Steve Nicol and Alejandro Moreno discuss England's issues in the final third.

In Monday's 0-0 draw between England and Slovakia it often felt as though Daniel Sturridge was playing in a different game to everybody else. Some of his touches were sublime -- one through ball to Nathanial Clyne in particular was brilliant -- but generally he appeared isolated on the right flank.

England's best chance fell to James Vardy from a long ball where he used his pace to ease past Martin Skrtel. The Reds defender recovered to perform well on a night which certainly didn't harm his chances...

Liverpool fans won't miss Martin Skrtel as defender appears set for Anfield exit

Martin Skrtel's eight injury-hit years at Liverpool appear to be coming to an end.

Liverpool's current second longest serving player has edged a step closer to the Anfield exit amid reports Martin Skrtel is heading to Fenerbahce.

The Slovakia international, currently at Euro 2016, is in no hurry to decide his future and expects to have offers from elsewhere by the time he's done with the tournament in France, but it's clear his time on Merseyside is drawing to a close.

Only Lucas has been at the club longer than Skrtel, who was signed from Zenit Saint Petersburg by Rafa...
