- The stunning new £ 50m training facility from Liverpool will be ready are during the summer
- ] The team of the first team and staff have become a close unit in Melwood
- Knock state out that the competition trip to Watford on Saturday will not be as easy as it seems
Jurgen Klopp has insisted it will be a & # 39; challenge & # 39; to exploit the unified atmosphere around Melwood and ensure that it continues in Liverpool & # 39; s new stunning £ 50 million training complex in Kirkby.
The team of the first team will leave their historic Melwood base at the end of this season and move to a lush new complex in Kirkby, where the Liverpool Academy is currently training.
Liverpool & # 39; s run to last season's title Champions League and about to become Premier League winners, the team of the first team is a close unit, something Klopp has attached great importance to during his reign as a manager.
But Klopp warned that the club is facing a difficult task of bringing a similar appearance as their new home.
Speaking for Saturday's trip to Watford, the German said: & # 39; It is (the atmosphere) how everyone wants it here (in Melwood).
We feel comfortable. It is not a situation that I have created here, it is everyone who works here.

& # 39; The challenge will be to bring that atmosphere to Kirkby. & # 39;
Liverpool's first team will have two gyms, a large sports hall, a swimming pool, a hydrotherapy complex and specialized rehabilitation suits available to them in Kirkby.
There will also be three first-team fields on campus, with state-of-the-art artificial stitching installed before new grass is sown in 2020.
training field is on schedule for completion this summer and it will be their home for preparations for the start of next season.
Liverpool can get even closer to the Premier League title on Saturday when they face a fight against Watford to prevent relegation.
Klopp insisted that it would be a hard task to get off Vicarage Road with three points.
He added: & # 39; I didn't know (Nigel) Pearson well, but I respect his history. They have a results crisis if you want, but no performance. They are a constant threat.
& # 39; They press high and defend well in a deep block. They need every point and hit back. When I looked at the luminaires, I thought that was a very heavy one. & # 39;
& # 39; It can be quite hostile … we can use it to our advantage & # 39 ;: Wales Lock Jake Ball warns inexperienced side of France that they are ready to take advantage of the Cardiff atmosphere for their Six Nations campaign to get back on track
- Wales is determined to inflict a first defeat against Six Nations 2020 on France
- The visitors to Cardiff have so far been undefeated after the victories of England and Italy
- Wayne Pivac's side would like to have experience counting against young opponents
Les Bleus have been unbeaten in the tournament so far after victories against England and Italy at home.
But since 2010, the Welsh have not lost any more in France in their capital – and since 2017 no-one anymore – so the youngsters of Fabien Galthie warned of a tough test.
Lock Jake Ball said: “It is a great place to play, but it can also be quite hostile and we can use that to benefit or r .
& # 39; They have two home games, two wins, but this is the first away game, so it's the opportunity for us to put them under pressure.
& # 39; When you & # 39; you don't hear the crowd en masse on the field.
& # 39; Sometimes during those important moments of the game, when there is a break in the game, maybe a penalty kick to the corner, you hear it and you feel that energy. There is no doubt that it is an advantage.
& You are extremely proud of playing at home. Every time you put on the shirt, you feel proud and know what it's like when you lose a game, you don't leave the house, it's a terrible feeling.
& # 39; So only the feeling you have to win and the pleasure you get from it is a huge part of why I play the game. & # 39;
Wales only lost back-to-back Six Nations games under Warren Gatland three times, so with the new man Wayne Pivac in the lead they hope to show similar resilience after their loss to Ireland.
& # 39; The core of the team is the same, there have not been many changes, & Ball added.
& # 39; So we all die to have a great win over the weekend and train like that. We had a very good day today and we are being pumped up for France at the weekend. & # 39;
Alan Pardew blames players & # 39; WhatsApp groups for & # 39; toxic atmosphere in dressing rooms of the Premier League
Alan Pardew has squeezed the influence of WhatsApp groups Premier League dressing roams like the former Crystal Palace West Brom and Newcastle manager knowledgeable about the role of such groups in bringing toxicity to football clubs.
Pardew was the last on the sidelines with Albion because he could not save the West Midlands club from relegation from the Premier League. The 58-year-old was fired after just four months in charge.
His spell with the Hawthorns was destroyed with disaster after disaster, which reached boiling point when a group of players landed in hot water after stealing a taxi. during a team connection trip to Barcelona .
The m The way in which Premier League stars communicate has evolved rapidly over the last decade, with the developer removing group services such as WhatsApp, meaning players can talk at any time of the day.
Most clubs have WhatsApp groups, which only consist of squadron games, meaning that coaches and other staff are excluded from the group.
And Pardew, who has been unemployed for a year and a half, has said that such groups can become breeding grounds to allow negative thoughts and attitudes to enter the dressing room.
& # 39; Now, when players leave the training field, they do not leave the training field, they are WhatsApping each other and it is now toxic and is spreading throughout the group, bringing people in, & # 39; he told A Pint with Eamonn and the Gaffers.
& # 39; Suddenly you arrive at the training field and there is a strange atmosphere and perhaps they have all achieved a different result than you as the manager perceived the result.
] & # 39; And of course it is completely out of your control. You cannot infiltrate into it; you really don't want that, because then you ask for more problems, I think. The senior players and toxic players now have greater control over the dressing room. & # 39;
Pardew went on to discuss the delicate issue of dealing with misleading large money alerts, saying that most managers do not have the ability to set players aside for fun. Sir Alex Ferguson was a manager whose control at Manchester United allowed him to fire players he didn't like.
He added: & # 39; Some of our managers do not have that problem. We do not have the same calculations to do because they are under contract, they are a big player for the club, we cannot isolate them alone; we need to be a little more agile and flexible when dealing with these players. & # 39;
& # 39; The atmosphere was a complete catastrophe … it was just like the weather – naughty and boring! & # 39; Frankfurt chief of police succeeds Emirates Stadium as angry Arsenal fans stay away in protest against Unai Emery … sent as Gunners boss
The atmosphere is that the Napoli team is one of harmony and & # 39; is quieter than you might think & quot; coach Carlo Ancelotti claims
- Napoli plays Liverpool in an important Champions League match on Wednesday
- Game is surrounded by reports that players are fined part of their wages
- The figure would be between a quarter and one half of this month's wages
- Napoli also makes six non-profit games in all competitions
- But Carlo Ancelotti said to the media: & # 39; I assure you that there is complete harmony & # 39;
The atmosphere is the Napoli team is one of harmony and & # 39; calmer than you would think & & # 39 ;, coach Carlo Ancelotti said Tuesday when he broke a silence enforced by the club after three tumultuous weeks.
Napoli face Liverpool in a key Champions League match on Wednesday amid reports that players are fined between a quarter and half of the wages of this month by the club because they did not want to stay in a training retreat earlier this month.
Napoli, Series A number two in the last four seasons, are also in a series of six non-win matches in all competitions and their challenge for the league title is aggravated by barely a third of the season is over.
However, they will qualify for the Champions League last 16 if they win the group on Wednesday AND win the match at Anfield or Salzburg in the other match not at Genk .
Ancelotti, who had to speak to the media under competition rules, refused to discuss the reports of fines, but said his players were determined to turn the corner.
& # 39; We are talking about the past but what happened has happened, & he said when asked about the fines. "Now we focus on the present and on the field."
& # 39; The media helped us to concentrate on the field, but also stopped giving air time to those they talked all kinds of nonsense, "Ancelotti said, adding that he never thought he would resign.
" The club knows it needs to be better, the team the same, the coach too and we are all involved and we want to do it tomorrow.
& # 39; But I assure you that there is complete harmony. That's why I never thought about resigning. In thirty years of my career I have never been without the trust of the club and the players. And this time it is. & # 39;
Ancelotti said that captain Lorenzo Insigne was not traveling due to an elbow injury and that midfielder Fabian Ruiz and left back Mario Rui were also questionable.
Manchester City needs NO social influencers to improve the atmosphere at Etihad Stadium … late victories such as those struggling against Southampton will succeed
Manchester City don & # 39; Do not need social influencers to improve the atmosphere at Etihad, only more games like this. Days when they have to draw on everything they see from a team like Southampton and the place jumps up.
You see, the problem with City is that they're just too damn good. Fans have become so used to easy wins and successive goals to their advantage that they have all become more predictable in these parts.
Like Manchester United for them, City has fallen victim to their own success. Supporters who used to be so satisfied are now sitting back and expecting more.
That is one of the reasons why City found itself in the middle of one of the most unusual stories of the season last week when it appeared that a PR company associated with the Premier League champions had posted an advertisement for influencers of social media to generate larger visitors and a better atmosphere at Etihad.
The primary goal were Champions League matches.
& # 39; This year's draw has brought us three relatively unknown teams, which means our core fans will be less likely to be present & # 39 ;, read the advertisement, of which City has every knowledge of and later the services of the PR company involved.
But the problem can also apply to league games. It is only to be expected that the mood here has changed since City won their first Premier League title in 2012. Since then three more championships have followed.
Winning has become the norm, as well as major victories under Pep Guardiola. Fans appear instead of anticipating an early goal and a handsome win, and usually get what they want.
Not so on this occasion. This time, the early goal belonged to one side of Southampton, whose last Premier League outing brought a record win of 9-0 for Leicester and was then comfortably sent 3-1 here in the Carabao Cup by City here on Wednesday night.
As The Guardiola side that remained at home felt strange, while the source of the Southampton goal was even stranger.
Ederson has barely made a mistake since arriving in Manchester, but the keeper failed to hold Danny Ings' shot in the 13th minute and James Ward-Prowse saved a chance to score from close range.
The Etihad was stunned in silence but quickly aroused to beg an answer from their team.
News that rivals from the Liverpool title had stayed behind for a third league match in a row, only increased the volume.
Saints fans who were clearly audible on Wednesday were drowned out by an increasingly anxious home support.
Their team was incredible and threw their bodies in the way of everything. offer for 70 minutes when the tension in the ground increased.
When Sergio Aguero finally met Kevin De Bruyne's cross to equalize up close, the Etihad exploded relieved and hoped there was still enough time to win a winner
The ghost went back to an unbelievable November night here in 2017 when City was held by Southampton in injury time and the late Raheem Sterling winner signaled a pandemonium in the Etihad.
That has been the dominance of the city, especially here, that we haven't experienced it since then, with the possible exception of the winner of Vincent Kompany against Leicester here in May.
This roughly matched when Kyle Walker stabbed the winner four minutes after the end of the normal time. The Etihad broke loose again when Guardiola stepped on the sidelines with his coaching staff. The City boss was furious with Southampton & # 39; s time-wasting tactics, so the victory tasted sweeter.
It was even more important in the context of the late, late winner of Liverpool at Villa Park. There will be more drama in this title race and City needs the Etihad again by number.
& # 39; A local derby under the lights … it will be great & # 39 ;: Tom Heaton of Aston Villa enjoys playing in a & # 39; hostile & # 39; atmosphere against Wolves while rivals hunt for Carabao Cup last-8 spot
- Tom Heaton looks forward to a & # 39; hostile & # 39; atmosphere for derby clash against Wolves

- Jack Grealish is expected to sit outside after a calf problem at the weekend
Villa strives to reach the Carabao Cup quarterfinals when they organize their local rivals on Wednesday.
Wolves are undefeated in their last eight games in all competitions and seek their first win at Villa Park since 2011.
And Heaton expects fireworks with a place in the last eight to grab.
& # 39; The boys have talked about how hostile that will be. A derby spot, under the lights, it will be a great atmosphere, & he said.
& # 39; It is a big mid-week competition that we are looking forward to and we want to go as far as we can in the cup.
& # 39; Certainly something is wrong. It was a strong start.
& # 39; A good basis. We have had the misfortune of not getting away with points in some games. We are now learning those fine margins. & # 39;
After Saturday's 3-0 defeat in Manchester City, Villa also welcomed Liverpool leaders into the Premier League on Saturday.
They are 15th in the top flight and Heaton feels confronted with the top two of the division in quick succession, which can benefit the team.
There are things we can take (from Manchester City). That added faith. It's the first time they have come to City for many boys, "said the English international.
" The way we tried to influence the game means we can take things away from it. It's in Villa Park next week. Hopefully we can continue the competition. & # 39;
Jack Grealish is likely to sit down on Wednesday after having been kicked into the Etihad by a kick against the calf.
Jota is a few weeks away from returning to full training after hernia surgery, while James Chester has stepped up his recovery from a hamstring problem, but is not yet finished.
Jonathan Kodjia also almost comes back from a broken cheekbone.

- Marseille PSG course with eight points in Ligue 1 and is in fifth place in the table
- Kylian Mbappe is expected to agaisnt his first start in two months

PSG is undefeated in their last 18 games against Marseille, but Tuchel will not underestimate their visitors, who are fourth, eight, points fiercely from Parisians.
Kylian Mbappe is ready for his first start in two months after he got off the bench to score a hat-trick in the 5-0 midweek victory over Club Brugge.
Tuchel told a press conference: "I expect an intense competition because it is a Classique. It is a special competition, a special atmosphere. We like that. We must be ready for the challenge, ready for that intensity
"It is a special game, such as a Champions League match or a cup match. I'm definitely looking forward to it.
"It is also a special game for us, the staff. We feel it in the hours before the game, in the coach … Everyone is talking about this game.
" You can't have too much emotion, you have to stay calm. That said It is not possible to play without emotions It is not a competition like the others There is a great history that is absolutely necessary to respect
"We are leaders, they are fourth, but that is not important. It is a good opportunity for Marseille.
" They will do everything to get a good result. We have to be ready for that. We have the quality and experience for that. So we have to prepare for the game to be ready. "
PSG goes into battle with some important players missing, but Tuchel can engage Ander Herrera and Julian Draxler.
Tuchel said:" Neymar, Thilo Kherer, Idrissa Gueye and Thomas Meunier will not sit in the team. Ander Herrera and Julian Draxler are training with the team and are ready.
"There is another training session to eat on Saturday afternoon and then another on Sunday morning. We will then decide which players to appeal to."
Marseille boss Andre Villas- Boas has prepared his side for a fight because they want to reverse their recent form against the Ligue 1 champions.
He said on the official Twitter account of Marseille: "We are not going to Paris to participate in a PSG party. We are ready for the fight. We can win despite what the statistics say. "
& # 39; Now the public is not worried when the ball is in our box & # 39 ;: Liverpool goalkeeper coach John Achterberg believes Alisson has calmed the atmosphere at Anfield
- ] Alisson is crucial for Liverpool since arriving from Roma for £ 65m
- He has 21 clean sheets and helped the club win the Champions League trophy
- Former goalkeepers Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius both made notable mistakes
- Achterberg believes that Liverpool fans will worry about Alisson as No. 1
- Dinamo Zagreb & Ivo Pinto says he expected a great atmosphere at Etihad
- Pinto has warned the city to have a very different sound level expect in Zagreb
- Pep Guardiola has previously called City fans to make more noise at home
Liverpool goalkeeper coach John Achterberg believes the presence of Alisson between the sticks has eased the nerves of faithful Anfield.
The Merseyside outfit has undergone several stoppers in recent seasons, with Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius both making expensive mistakes.
But Alisson's arrival at Anfield for £ 65 million last season has created an aura of calmness around the club with the Brazilian holding 21 clean sheets and Liverpool helping the Champions League previous season when they finished second in the competition.
And Achterberg says that the hefty amount Liverpool has paid to arrest Alisson from Rome is more than worth it, and believes he crowd has given a lift with its impressive displays.
& # 39; I was convinced that if we were going to spend money, Alisson was the number 1 that I would sign & # 39 ;, he told the Liverpool Echo .
& # 39; It is clear what he has done so far. You look around at the way we play and his movements and you have to say he is number 1. & # 39;
The Dutch former goalkeeper of Tranmere Rovers looked at the case of Manchester United David de Gea, who initially struggled with Old Trafford before establishing himself as the club's first choice, but he praised Alisson for making a quick impact on the club.
& # 39; Looking at the level of the Premier League, he has worked out this step himself with the qualities he has shown over the years, & he added.
& # 39; Of course these movements have to come loose, because you look at David de Gea (at Manchester United), it took one or two years before he was on his level and had the confidence.
& # 39; So you don't have much time to settle down, because there is always talk and I think Ali and the boss have changed the way the crowd really treats their way of playing and playing. .
& # 39; Now the audience is positive from the first second and not worried if the ball is in the air or in the box. & # 39;
Alisson has not played since the Liverpool opening match against Norwich, when he was forced to end with a calf injury in the first half. Former West Ham goalkeeper Adrian replaces since
But he is expected to return to play against rivals Manchester United after the international break on October 20. The 27-year-old is believed to have had additional training sessions as he speeds up his recovery.
& # 39; It was a quiet stadium and that surprised us! & # 39 ;: Dinamo Zagreb star Ivo Pinto shocked by the lack of atmosphere created by Manchester City fans after the Champions League clash on Etihad
Lack of atmosphere in Manchester City & # 39 ; s Etihad Stadium will be the talk of Europe.
Wolves The newest teams visiting Sunday are the best team in England, but they don't have to contend with the same noise that City & # 39; s opponents encountered the old Maine Road, even then she slipped into the old third division.
& Ivo Pinto of Dinamo Zagreb, who spent three years in Norwich City and returned to England last week when his party met City in the Champion League.
& # 39; Our fans were fantastic, but the home supporters were quiet. It won't be the same in Zagreb. It will be a different atmosphere.
& # 39; We have 35,000 fans behind us and there will be a great passion that you have not heard from home fans in this game.
& # 39; Coming to Manchester City with Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League, you see it as a top game, the game of your life for some players.
& # 39; The quality of the City players, the stadium, the field. We had expected a big game. It was a big game, yes, just a bit quiet! Not quite what we expected. & # 39;
Pep Guardiola has repeatedly called for more noise to be generated at home games, especially on European evenings when City's reputation suffers from Liverpool and Anfield. For the 2-0 win against Zagreb, the manager called on his players to "seduce" the fans
According to Pinto, it didn't work. & # 39; We know about Anfield and all these famous English grounds and the atmosphere & he said.
& # 39; City fans may have their reasons why they are louder for a Premier League match against another English team than in the Champions League. It was OK for us, it wasn't a problem that it was quiet, but that's how we found it.
In our stadium City is still the big dog and we are the underdogs but with the passionate support we have, we can surprise them. Why not?
