Liverpool is about to begin a big week, with three Premier League matches in the next seven days. After Fulham visits Anfield on Sunday, the Reds face trips to Sheffield United on Wednesday and Crystal Palace three days later.
As hectic as the schedule is, it is the same for all sides. Tottenham, for instance, plays Manchester City, West Ham and Newcastle, a much more testing trio of fixtures. Ange Postecoglou's team is not in a good run of form, either, and has an incredible amount of injuries to contend with all at once.
Liverpool will obviously be most interested in how Manchester City fares, and after they host Spurs they go to Aston Villa and Luton. Leaders Arsenal also go to Kenilworth Road (on Tuesday) and then Villa Park next weekend, so face the same sides as the defending champions.
The Reds will hold a keen interest in another issue regarding City, and they continue to be linked with a move for Kylian Mbappé. With those factors in mind, here are some recent Liverpool.com stories you won’t want to miss ahead of a potentially very important period in the campaign.Man City hearing date set
With Everton having recently been docked 10 points by the Premier League for being found guilty of a single charge, football supporters are fascinated to see what punishment Manchester City will face if the 115 charges against them are upheld. It will be a long time until we have an answer to that query, though a time frame in which it might appear has emerged.
It has been reported by the Daily Mail that City and the Premier League have agreed to sit next autumn, with a verdict then expected in summer 2025. Of course, if the Cityzens are found guilty then an appeal will no doubt be lodged but it will be fascinating to see how it unfolds. James Martin has more on that, as well as a decision that has angered Jürgen Klopp, here.Newcastle complaint proves Kylian Mbappé right
It would be little surprise if Mbappé is sick of the sight of Newcastle, having seen his Paris Saint-Germain side come within a whisker of losing twice to the Magpies this season. The penalty from which he equalized in the 98th minute on Tuesday was hugely controversial and has moved Newcastle to make a complaint to UEFA.
Justifiably awarded for handball or not, it’s hard to say PSG didn’t deserve something from the game as they accumulated over four expected goals. "It’s frustrating because we dominated this team from start to finish," Mbappé said to Canal+ (via The Athletic) after the match.
He probably has a point. But does Newcastle have one regarding the penalty? There is a trend for complaints from teams who failed to back up Liverpool when the Reds were conclusively wronged by officials and not just on the wrong end of a subjective call. Read more about the Magpies, Mbappé and Liverpool here.
Xabi Alonso has done some job in the Bundesliga. When he took over, Bayer Leverkusen was in danger of being relegated. He turned it around quickly, ended up finishing sixth, and got to a European semi-final.
This year, with 12 games gone, the German outfit is ahead of even Bayern Munich at the summit. There is a genuine chance that he could be leading Leverkusen to an unlikely league title.
Carlo Ancelotti could leave at the end of the season, with the Italian wanted by the Brazilian national team, and Alonso is the favorite to take on the role. Indeed, the Daily Mirror reports that Real Madrid has now 'decided' that Alonso will be its next boss.
In that piece and elsewhere, it has been framed as a 'blow' for Liverpool. But that overlooks many things, and not least that Jürgen Klopp is not yet going anywhere. The German is under contract until 2026 and could even extend again beyond that.
For the Reds, there is no better position to be in than simply keeping hold of the manager it has now for as long as it can. There is no better manager for Liverpool out there, so why would it be an issue?
Eventually, of course, Liverpool will need to plan for the future. But while Alonso might be heading to Real Madrid next, that hardly rules him out of the main job at Anfield in the future. If anything, it should end up strengthening his case.Sign up for our EXCLUSIVE Liverpool.com newsletter!

Right now, Liverpool replacing Klopp with Alonso would be a risk to some degree. Yet if the Spaniard had been successful at Real Madrid in the meantime, that would be much more of a sure thing.
And while he might move to the Bernabéu first, Alonso will have many more clubs in him after that. Alonso took his time when leaving Real Sociedad's B side to ensure he was ready and wasn't getting ahead of himself, turning down multiple opportunities that came up in the process. This is a coach who is clearly here for the long haul.
Ancelotti has only been at Real Madrid for a couple of seasons during his latest stint at the helm. The last manager to last more than three years at Real Madrid was Vicente del Bosque. That was in 2003 (and he only lasted around four seasons).
Even for the very best coaches, Real Madrid is not a job for a lengthy period. Klopp and Pep Guardiola having been in England for so long is a rarity for any big side. Most often, you last two or three years and then move on.
If Alonso does move back to Spain at the end of this season, then, he definitely won't be at Real Madrid forever. Given Liverpool will hope to keep Klopp for as long as it can, the timings may yet end up aligning for one to succeed the other. The truth is, if anything, if he heads to Real Madrid next summer, Liverpool should welcome it rather than see it as a blow.
Liverpool Football Club has a rich history of talented strikers who have left an indelible mark on the club's success. But according to AI, two big hitters — including Mohamed Salah — do not make the top-five list of all-time Reds forwards.
At number five on the AI's list is Michael Owen, widely regarded as one of the best strikers in Premier League history. Owen burst onto the scene as a young talent, becoming Liverpool's youngest-ever scorer with a goal on his top-flight debut. He went on to win the Premier League Golden Boot twice and was named Premier League Player of the Season in 1998. Owen's crowning achievement came in 2001 when he won the prestigious Ballon d'Or while playing for Liverpool. Throughout his career at Anfield, Owen secured several trophies including the FA Cup, UEFA Cup, and League Cup.
Next up is Robbie Fowler, affectionately known as "God" by Liverpool fans. Fowler emerged from the club's academy and made an immediate impact, scoring a hat-trick in only his fifth top-flight match. He held the record for the fastest hat-trick in Premier League history — scoring three goals against Arsenal in just four minutes and 33 seconds — until future Liverpool player Sadio Mané surpassed that during his time at Southampton.
Fowler consistently scored over 30 goals in each of his first three seasons, a feat unmatched by any other player in England at the time. He played a pivotal role in winning the FA Cup, two League Cups, and the UEFA Cup before departing for Leeds United. Fowler eventually returned to Liverpool but couldn't replicate his earlier success, finishing his Reds career with an impressive tally of 183 goals in 369 games.
Roger Hunt takes the third spot on the AI's list. Hunt is Liverpool's record league scorer, having spent 11 years at Anfield from 1958. During his time at Anfield, he won two league titles and the FA Cup, with his goals contributing significantly to the team's success. Hunt clinched the Golden Boot in the First Division during Liverpool's second title-winning campaign, scoring an impressive 29 goals in 37 games. In total, he netted 285 goals for the Reds in all competitions, a record surpassed only by Ian Rush. Hunt's achievements extend beyond club football, as he was part of the England national team that won the World Cup in 1966.
Ian Rush, Liverpool's all-time leading goalscorer, occupies the second position on the AI's list. Rush enjoyed two spells at Anfield, amassing a remarkable tally of 346 goals in 660 games across all competitions. He joined Liverpool from Chester in 1980 and quickly established himself as a prolific scorer. Rush's return to Liverpool after a brief stint at Juventus solidified his status as a club legend. His goals played a crucial role in securing five league titles, five League Cups, three FA Cups, and two European Cups for the Reds. The 1983/1984 season was particularly memorable for Rush as he won the European Golden Boot and was named the FWA Footballer of the Year after scoring an incredible 47 goals.
Finally, topping the AI's rankings is Kenny Dalglish, affectionately known as "King Kenny" among Liverpool fans. Dalglish had an illustrious playing career at Anfield, winning six league titles, four League Cups, three European Cups, and the FA Cup. He became player-manager in 1985, retiring as a player in 1990 and then remaining in the dugout for a further year. He would also make a brief return under FSG's reign as owners, winning the League Cup in 2011/12.
Throughout his time at the club, Dalglish scored 172 goals in 515 games in all competitions. His impact on Liverpool's history and his contributions both on and off the pitch solidify his status as the club's greatest-ever player.
Liverpool.com says: That means that Salah and Luis Suárez have both been snubbed. Salah might be more of a winger than a striker, but he would certainly be a 'forward', though he is not a number nine. By the time the Egyptian departs, whenever that might be, he will be right up there among the best players to have worn the Liverpool shirt. Indeed, he already is.
