alisson becker is out for liverpools clash with aston villa

Alisson Becker will miss Liverpool‘s trip to Aston Villa on Sunday evening in a blow to Jurgen Klopp‘s Premier League champions, according to The Athletic.

The Brazilian has been an integral figure in the Reds defence since joining from Roma, providing much-needed stability to the back four. 

However, Becker has reportedly picked up an injury in training and will miss the game at Villa Park. It is not yet known how long he will be out for, with Adrian deputising for Klopp’s side this evening.

The 27-year-old has enjoyed a strong start to the 2020-21 campaign for the Reds, helping Klopp’s side to a 100 per cent record in the league.

Becker’s absence will come as a blow to Liverpool fans, although Adrian stepped in admirably last season when the Brazilian was sidelined for a number of weeks.

Meanwhile, Trent Alexander-Arnold is believed to be fit to play at Villa Park, while new £45m signing Diogo Jota is expected to play a part as a result of Sadio Mane’s absence due to a positive coronavirus test.

New boy Thiago Alcantara will also miss the game against Dean Smith’s side due to testing positive for covid also. 

Liverpool snatched a dramatic win last time they visited the Villains, with Andy Robertson and Mane netting late to keep their title charge going. 

It may well be a tough prospect this evening with Smith’s side enjoying a strong opening to the campaign, having beaten Sheffield United and swept aside Fulham in their opening two games.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard claims he’s held to higher standard than other big six chiefs as he’s English

chelsea boss frank lampard claims hes held to higher standard than other big six chiefs as hes english

FRANK LAMPARD believes he is judged differently as the sole English boss at a top Premier League club.

Ahead of tonight’s trip to Russian side Krasnodar FC, Lamps, 42, is managing Chelsea in his second Champions League campaign.

The last Englishman to achieve that was legendary Sir Bobby Robson 17 years ago with Newcastle United.

Asked generally if he is scrutinised differently because he is from England, Lampard replied: “I think possibly, yes. Possibly, yes.

“When I got this job, a lot of people were questioning me. A lot of people told me: ‘Are you sure you want to take it because of opinion?’



“Sometimes people can be very quick to form opinions straightaway for whatever reason.

“Being a young English manager with one year at Derby some of that I understood.

“But we do have to judge people on face value like any manager, no matter of where you’re from. I was proud of what we achieved last season.”

The Chelsea boss hopes football owners will consider employing more home-grown talent in the future.

He said: “I was surprised by the stat when I was told it, joining the great Bobby Robson, and to be the only Englishman who has done it since.

“I don’t feel the responsibility of the ‘English managers’ union’.

“It was a long time ago, towards the end of my career, when I heard English managers would get jobs in the Premier League. There was a merry-go-round.

“But I think it’s slightly different. Sometimes now we see English managers showing their qualities in the game, throughout the Premier League and Championship.

“Hopefully there are more opportunities for them.

“Sometimes with the brilliant invasion of great quality coaches and players into the Premier League, sometimes our eyes go to that.

“It becomes very new and trendy, rightly so, with managers who have achieved so much. But hopefully we can also have managers at home who can do the jobs as well.”

Chelsea come into this European tie on the back of two successive 0-0 draws.

Edouard Mendy will keep his place in goal with Kepa Arrizabalaga unavailable due to a shoulder problem.

German international Antonio Rudiger could make his first appearance of the season after Lampard confirmed they had discussed his future.

Brazilian defender Thiago Silva has not travelled for this second Group E match.

Kurt Zouma, who celebrated his 26th birthday last night, admitted the players speak French on the pitch in defence whenever Silva is starting.

Zouma said: “At the minute we are talking in French because Thiago is still learning.

“With the other guys we talk English. Edouard understands English very well, can speak English. Naturally I speak French to Thiago.

“My best birthday present? A clean sheet and a win would be perfect – that would be the best gift I’d like.

“I haven’t played before, no, on my birthday. This is the first time.”

Chelsea likely (4-2-3-1): Mendy; Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Chilwell; Kante, Kovacic; Ziyech, Havertz, Pulisic; Werner
