Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp made his intention known to everyone after he benched his captain Jordan Henderson in the clash against Tottenham as he believe he is still ‘adapting to the intensity’ of the current season.

Henderson had his first start against Leicester but it was his influence that led to the first goal the Reds would concede.

However the Liverpool captain was agile in the World Cup, perhaps it was the influence of featuring in nearly all the matches that made him lose the agility to start as he did last season.

Klopp, however, started Naby Keita ahead of him who was very much impressive in the first three matches including the 2:1 victory against Spurs.

Jurgen Klopp said his decision to drop Jordan Henderson in the clash against Spurs was because the club captain is still ‘adapting to the intensity’.

He made a single change to his starting line-up as the Reds prepare to battle Tottenham at Wembley- bringing in Naby Keita for Henderson.

according to Klopp in an interview with Sky sport, he admitted that his captain is still pushing to be quick as he used to.

“We need Hendo so much and I don’t think it makes sense in the moment to play him day in, day out, that’s the thing”

Henderson is likely to start on Tuesday against PSG on Tuesday,

Serge Gnabry left the Gunners some seasons ago after failing to convince Arsene Wenger to give him much game-time on the pitch.

The German youngster showed great promises during his time at the Emirates Stadium but he wasn’t rated by the former manager Arsene Wenger, who only used him in 18 matches before selling him out to Weder Bremen.

Gnabry has since returned to form and he’s being one of the best performers for Bayern Munich so far this season.

The 23-year-old was seen hanging out with Arsenal left-back Hector Bellerin on social media and Arsenal fans can’t wait to see the player re-joined the Gunners in January.

Having seen the picture of both players via Bellerin’s verified Instagram account, the Gunners faithful are calling on their Spanish defender to talk to the German young striker to sign with the Gunners once more.

Here is the summary of their posts on Instagram.

One fan advised Bellerin to ensure the impressive player return back to the Emirates stadium as he posted ‘Bring him back.’

Another fan couldn’t hide his sadness the player’s transfer as he posted “gutted for seeing him (Gnabry) leave the Emirates Stadium’

Finally, another supporter believes Arsenal is the player’s home, therefore, it is time to ‘bring him back home’.

Douglas Costa

Since Cristiano Ronaldo made his sensational switch to the Turin outfits last month, some players have been feeling the heat and one of them is Brazilian star, Douglas Costa.

The winger was permanently bought by Juventus after his impressive showing for the club during the previous season, however, his days under Massimiliano Allegri is numbered as he’s not getting quality time on the field of play.

To make matters worse for the former Bayern Munich, Juventus hierarchy have decided to part way with him following his spitting incident in their clash with Sassuolo last week.

Reports are linking him with a move to Manchester United in the next transfer market.

Should Mourinho capture the player’s signature, how will the Portuguese manager get the best out him remains unseen.

Anthony Martial might be the sacrificial lamb for the player as Mourinho won’t love to have too many wingers on his team.

Costa has pace and his drilling skills make him the best player to occupy Mourinho’s either wings.

He could operate as a left winger or right-winger, depending on Mourinho’s preference.

Lukaku will benefit more from the Brazilian’s creativity at the wings because Costa would make many crosses into the 18-yard box for the Belgian to latch into opposition’s goal.

Arsenal fans are upbeat about the future, having recorded three wins from five games.

The off-field events happening at the Emirates Stadium is another reason for the club’s faithful joyous mood.

During the week, the Gunners finally confirmed that their long-term CEO Ivan Gazidis would be leaving the club for AC Milan next month and that was a great news for the Gunners fans, who believes the club will now spend big during transfer markets under Stan Kroenke.

Though things are going smoothly for the North London club at the moment, Unai Emery needs to get this player as soon as the January transfer market reopens.

Croatian winger Ante Rebic is the player that’s desperately needed at the Emirates Stadium, should Emery desire to make perfect use of his right wing in the second half of the season.

The 24-year-old is a quality crosser of the ball and that would benefit Lacazette and Aubameyang.

The player’s ability to run at defender and make them commit fouls is another character needed by Emery in his team to succeed.

Henrikh Mktaryan, Danny Welbeck and Alex Iwobi are all great wingers but none of them possesses the ability to bully defenders like Rebic.

The Frankfurt star scored nine goals throughout last season despite playing from the flanks. Though that wasn’t a great stats but none of the Gunners wingers was able to achieve such feat throughout last season.

It remains unknown if the Bundesliga side are ready to release the player in the coming transaction period.

The Polish international Piotr Sebastian Zieliński who was nicknamed “Pablo Nedved” by Naples fans, spearheaded his team to victory against AC Milan and as well played a pivot role in Carlo Ancelotti’s style.

Chelsea’s new boss, Maurizio Sarri showed interest in the Polish international after his impressive performance in the Seria A. Although, Napoli’s chairman already cut-off the relationship with Sarri after joining Chelsea and taking Jorginho alongside.

Sebastian Zieliński has appeared as the potential replacement for Slovakian and Naple’s captain Marek Hamsik.

The French top elite, Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest in him after losing Thiago Motta and Giovani Lo Celso last summer. Thomas Tuchel is combing for Blaise Matuidi’s replacement who left two seasons ago under then manager, Unai Emery.

Many wonders why Chelsea’s manager is after the midfield maestro because he was always on the reserved role last season.

It was also reported that Zielinski has been linked with rivals Liverpool making the market competitive for the Blues.

With information already looming around that Zielinski could sign a new deal that will see his buyout clause range from €100-€120 million which is worth a deal for someone who just started playing with the first XI.
Abramovich will need to battle with PSG’s billionaires to bring the indefatigable player to London.
