It’s back! The Premier League returns this weekend as Liverpool look to maintain their unbeaten start to the league season.Having scraped a draw with Manchester City last time out, Jurgen Klopp’s side will be looking for a first win in four games when they travel to Huddersfield Town for the Saturday evening game,The international break has not been particularly kind to the Reds, with injuries biting in key areas, but with the fixture list looking rather inviting they will be confident of racking up some important results over the next few weeks.

Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Here, Goal takes a look at everything you need to know ahead of their trip to the John Smith’s Stadium…Liverpool Injuries Where to start? Liverpool’s international break has been hellish, with the problems mounting for Klopp.They already had a concern over James Milner, who was forced off with a hamstring problem against Manchester City. The midfielder has not yet been ruled out of the Huddersfield game, however, having been pictured in training on Thursday. Maybe he really is a machine!Mohamed Salah, too, was among those at Melwood two days out from the game despite having returned early from international duty with Egypt due to a muscular problem.Sadio Mane, meanwhile, is more of a doubt after he suffered a broken thumb with Senegal, and would need some sort of protective cast to appear in West Yorkshire.Virgil van Dijk was another to return early, sent back by the Netherlands as he continues to manage a rib problem, but the defender is expected to be fine for the weekend.Naby Keita, though, is not. The midfielder picked up a hamstring issue on duty with Guinea and is likely to be miss at least a fortnight.Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is a long-term absentee, though Adam Lallana is fit to return to action if called upon.Liverpool Suspensions Liverpool do not have any suspended players for this game. Likely Liverpool Starting Line-UpA tough one, this, with late decisions to be taken on a number of players.Van Dijk is the likeliest of those injured in the last fortnight to start while Salah has the best chance of the rest of being named in Klopp’s 11.Liverpool have decent options. Trent Alexander-Arnold could return at right-back with Joe Gomez moving inside to partner Van Dijk – assuming Klopp prefers the youngster to Dejan Lovren.Midfield could see Fabinho drafted in alongside Jordan Henderson with Gini Wijnaldum freed to play a more attacking role.And in the front three, one or both of Xherdan Shaqiri and Daniel Sturridge could come in alongside Roberto Firmino. Lallana, too, will be desperate for a start.Huddersfield Town Team News Huddersfield will be without defender Terence Kongolo, who has a hamstring issue, and midfielder Danny Williams, who has been nursing a knee problem.They have numerous concerns elsewhere too. Aaron Mooy has a groin problem, while Philip Billing and Chris Lowe have knocks. Ramadan Sobhi, Tommy Smith and Abdelhamid Sabiri are also doubts due to minor issues.TV Channel & Kick-Off Time The fixture will be broadcast live on UK TV this weekend, screened on BT Sport, kick-off 5.30pm BST. In the United States the game can be watched live on television on NBC Sports, kick off 12.30pm ET.Best Opta Match Facts Huddersfield lost both Premier League meetings 3-0 against Liverpool last season, in what where their first league meetings with the Reds since the 1971-72 campaign. Liverpool are unbeaten in 12 matches in all competitions against Huddersfield (W9 D3 L0) and haven’t conceded a single goal in any of their last seven against the Terriers. Huddersfield managed just one shot on target across their two Premier League games against Liverpool last season, and only six shots in total. Huddersfield have failed to score in any of their four Premier League home games this season – only Everton in 1998-99 have failed to score in any of their first five at home at the start of a Premier League campaign. Huddersfield have failed to score in their last six home Premier League games – only Manchester City (8 in 2006-07) have ever had a longer such run in the competition. Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool have lost five of their nine away Premier League games against teams starting the day in the relegation zone (P9 W2 D2 L5) and won none of their last six (W0 D2 L4) since a 6-0 victory at Aston Villa in February 2016.

Anthony Martial has tipped Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to retain the managerial position at Manchester United on a permanent basis.The French midfielder revealed the entire squad is enjoying the reign of the Norwegian boss ahead of their clash with PSG.Martial scored a superb solo goal in United’s 3-0 win over Fulham on Saturday to enter the top four and further extend the unbeaten run under the 45-year-old to 11 games.French connexion ⚡️⚡️⚡️ pic.twitter.com/6q6N13MBFS— Anthony Martial (@AnthonyMartial) December 22, 2018“Well, obviously things are going really well at the moment. We’re really happy to have him here,” the France forward told a news conference ahead of Tuesday’s mouth-watering Champions League showdown against Paris Saint-Germain.“Sure, I hope we can continue with him. The final decision isn’t down to us but certainly, we’re happy he’s here at the moment.”“We’ve got a coach who’s got different intentions, a different approach,” Martial disclosed via FourFourTwo. “We’re trying to do what he wants us to do.“When our new coach came in he had a lot of confidence and a lot of determination. That’s really a boost to us.Liverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“He had a lot of confidence in us and we’re trying to pay him back in kind.“He’s asking me to attack more, that’s my job after all – to make the difference, as it were, to be more decisive“Things are working out well for the other attackers as well. I hope we can continue to be as effective and efficient.”.@AnthonyMartial: “Obviously things are going really well at the moment so we’re happy to have him [Ole] here with us.” #MUFC pic.twitter.com/5pELklKcg0— Manchester United (@ManUtd) February 11, 2019However, Solskjaer feels that there is still room for improvement when it comes to Martial’s finishing.“He’s often said that to me and even previous managers have said that to me,” he added.“I think if I do manage to do that [and] get beyond the defence then I will score more goals.”
Sarah Tew/CNET Read the Rylo camera preview $999 Amazon Formerly known as the Google Home Hub, Google’s Nest Hub packs a wealth of Google Assistant goodness into a 7-inch screen. At $59, this is within a buck of the best price we’ve seen. It lists for $129 and sells elsewhere in the $89-to-$99 range.This is one item of many available as part of eBay’s Labor Day Sale (which, at this writing, doesn’t specifically mention Labor Day, but that’s how it was pitched to us). Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Elden Ring details have leaked.George R.R. Martin’s video game collaboration with From Software looks to have been leaked late Friday.Reported by CNET sister site GameSpot Friday, the Game of Thrones author’s game will be called Elden Ring.The leaks came ahead of E3, the world’s biggest video game show, which starts next week.Daniel Ahmad, senior analyst at Niko Partners, tweeted the poster for Elden Ring Friday. Game of Thrones,I’m shocked — shocked! — to learn that stores are turning Labor Day into an excuse to sell stuff. Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio. Google Express is having a big sale as well, one that includes deals on game consoles, AirPods, iPhones, laptops and more.Below I’ve rounded up a handful of individual items I consider to be the cream of the crop, followed by a handy reference guide to other Labor Day sales. Keep in mind, of course, that products may sell out at any time, even if the sale itself is still running. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

It’s a little smaller than the Amazon Echo Show 5, but also a full $30 less (and tied with Prime Day pricing) during this Best Buy Labor Day sale. Lenovo 130-15AST 15.6-inch laptop: $210 (save $90) I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Martin” and will come to Xbox One, PS4 and PC.The game will apparently have players exploring kingdoms. If you kill the rulers in each kingdom, you unlock their special abilities and supernatural powers, according to the leaked details.The leaks follow rumors in May that Martin would be a game consultant for Dark Souls developer From Software.”I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan,” Martin said in a blog post at the time.

Nationwide Distributors, via Google Express, has just about the best AirPods deal we’ve seen (when you apply promo code ZBEDWZ at checkout). This is for the second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case. Can’t imagine these will last long at this price, so if you’re interested, act fast. Review • iPhone XS review, updated: A few luxury upgrades over the XR The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price.
