Jürgen Klopp spoke about the game with Arsenal and did not fail to mention the work of Mikel Arteta in the team
Shortly before the battle with Arsenal for the third game of the Premier League, Jürgen Klopp praised Mikel Arteta. The Spanish coach has elevated the team, with the Liverpool coach acknowledging his work.
In fact, Arteta has managed to score a victory against Liverpool, defeating the "reds" 2-1 at the end of last year's championship. Klopp knows how to recognize those who deserve it and he could not do it with Artetas.
"Arteta has shown that he is a fantastic coach in a very short time. The change of Arsenal is incredible.
There is a great balance between defense and attack. They are well organized, the players are free and they perform. He has already won the Cup and the Super Cup. He is really impressive and he will be a very tough opponent.
All players defend in a 5-4-1 formation. "I can say a lot of good things about Arsenal, because I really believe in them", were Klopp's words for his colleague.
As for Liverpool's preparation for Monday's match, Klopp has not yet settled on the people he will use.
However, it is possible to see Thiago Alcantara as a key player for the first time with the Liverpool shirt. His first appearance was at Stamford Bridge, where he played throughout the second half against Chelsea.
"We'll see. We have some days to train, so we will see how things go. I have an idea, but I do not need to decide today "concluded the German coach.
A blow with Gabriel Jesούςs occurred in Manchester City
Having already knocked out Aguero, Manchester City will have to be suspended for a month due to injury and Gabriel Jesούςs.
A blow with Gabriel Jesούςs occurred in Manchester City.
According to the Brazilian federation (following information from the English club) the muscle injury suffered by the 23-year-old forward in the game with the Wolves will keep him out for a month.
Thus, he will lose the matches of "Celesao" with Bolivia and Peru, while Pep Guardiola (who already has a knockout and Aguero) will be deprived of him in the matches with Leicester and Leeds for the Premier League.
Real Madrid footballer Eden Hazard is said to be ready to return to action.
Eden Hazard's career at Real Madrid has not progressed well at all. The Belgian star faced many injury problems last season, while even this year he has not started in the best possible way, since the extra pounds have left him far behind compared to the rest of the team.
The 28-year-old extreme striker remains in the pits, however he is said to be ready to return to active action and in fact very soon! The news was confirmed by his coach, Zinedine Zidane, with the French coach stating that Azar is now at 100% and is expected to step on the field again soon.
"It is true that Eden has not been able to fight for a long time. He had a lot of problems last season and that's why we are not in a hurry to get him to play. It no longer has any discomfort and is at 100%. "He is expected to play soon", said Zidane in view of the match with Real Betis.
City wants Ruben Dias
Manchester City are in talks with Benfica to acquire Portuguese center-back Ruben Dias, who is expected to cost 55 million euros.
Pep Guardiola's team has already acquired a stopper, Nathan Ake, from Bournemouth, but is trying to get another one. After initially not seeing the light of day in the case of Calindo Koulibali of Naples, the Citizens went to Conde in Seville offering the same amount to hear "no" from the Andalusians. Finally, the 55 million euros are available and according to reliable sources, they will go to the Lisbon Eagles for the 23-year-old, Ruben Dias.
One of the "bangs" of the summer is over. Atletico announced the acquisition of the Uruguayan pistolero, Luis Suarez, from Barcelona.
Although he even took exams in Italian - which turned out to be set up - for the sake of Juventus, the 33-year-old forward only changed his shirt and not the league. Luis Suarez is a regular Atletico player transfer, with whom he signed a two-year contract. Suarez, who was effectively "exchanged" by the Madrilenians in their roster with Alvaro Morata, put 198 in 283 matches in all competitions with the Blaugrana, with whom he won everything in 6 seasons.
Barcelona is easing its budget.
The plan of the Barcelona administration to lighten the cost of the roster is on the right track. According to As, 52 million euros have been saved since the departure of Luis Suarez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal.
The Uruguayan was the third highest paid player on the team with 23,4 million euros gross, behind only Messi and Griezmann. Rakitiτς was sixth on the list with 13,3 million, while Vidal is eleventh with 9 million. The intention of the "blaugrana" is to get rid of the 12 million euros of Umtiti, who is the seventh most expensive player.
Josep Maria Bartomeu had set a goal of saving 100 million euros from the contracts, but it is said that he will be satisfied even if he drops the budget by 70 million euros.

Paris Saint-Germain are said to be "glancing" at Chelsea's Antonio Rudiger.
Antonio Rudiger is said to be on the "radar" of Paris Saint-Germain. The German central defender is out of Frank Lampard's plans, after the addition of Thiago Silva to the team, as the English coach prefers to keep Fikayo Tomori, instead of Rudiger.
According to the "Island" media and Athletic, the 27-year-old is on the transfer list of Paris Saint-Germain, with Thomas Tuchel having asked for reinforcement in the team's defense sector. The Parisians are ready to make a proposal in the form of a loan, however the Londoners prefer to sell the footballer due to his age.
After the seven additions, Chelsea wants to make a "mini" discard, now having a full roster.
"He is the type of modern Cruyff"
Former sporting director Ralph Ragnick likened Chelsea's new transfer acquisition, Kay Havertz, to the legendary Johan Cruyff.
Kay Havertz made the step up in his career this summer by moving from Bayer Leverkusen to Chelsea. The German footballer cost 62 million pounds to the "blues". The former "aspirin" ace seems to be having difficulty adjusting to the Premier League, although he has the relief that Lampard did not use him in the first 2 games in his favorite position as a "ten". On the contrary, either as an extreme or as a pseudo-nine, he could not get anything from Havertz against Brighton and Liverpool.
In any case, the talent of the 21-year-old is not questioned. Former athletic director Ralph Ragnick, in fact, did not hesitate to compare him with Cruyff. We remind you that Ragnik had seen live the talent of the young man in the games of Leipzig with Leverkusen.
"I have no doubt that he will succeed at Chelsea and that he will become one of the top players in the next two or three years. It may take a few weeks to adjust because it has a fantastic family background. I know this because I was also trying to persuade him to come with us to Leipzig. He was, however, completely devoted to Bayer. He is one of those players where I do not see any weaknesses in his game. "He is the type of modern Cruyff, he can score and he can offer assists," he told Sky Sports.
Regarding the positions he can perform better, Ragnik replied: "He can play nine. I do not see him in the wing but in the central area of the stadium, he is extremely valuable. "I have no doubt that this transfer will prove to be successful for Chelsea and Kay."
