(Videos) AC Milan score quickfire double in two minutes to stun Liverpool in first-half Anfield comeback

AC Milan looked set to go into half-time at least a goal down having come up against an aggressive Liverpool side at Anfield in the opening 45 minutes.

Despite being outplayed for large portions of the first-half, however, Stefano Pioli’s men rallied late before the whistle to fire in two goals in the space of a couple of minutes to lead at L4.

The goals came courtesy of Ante Rebic and Brahim Diaz, with the pair stunning Jurgen Klopp’s Reds to hand the visiting Serie A giants the lead going into the second-half.

Among the special features on display at Minardi Day 2021, which really aroused considerable interest among the fans attending the event, was a wonderful series of Formula 1 models in scale made with LEGO bricks. I immediately noticed the care and precision with which they were made but, above all, the great diversity compared to what is normally found on the market. Curiosity drove me to have a chat with the author: Luca Rusconi founder of the LEGO user group Brianza LUG.

Liverpool are reluctant to put a timeline on Elliott’s recovery, as was the case with Virgil van Dijk and co. last season, for obvious reasons.

This news comes as a massive boost to Jürgen Klopp and the rest of the team as the 18-year-old was beginning to cement his place in the Reds’ regular starting XI.

As per the above statement via Liverpool’s official website, Elliott suffered a fracture dislocation of the left joint.

GUEST: The shaky – and getting shakier – case for FSG at Liverpool

By Max Gallagher (@maxgallwrites)

The following is a guest article by the aforementioned author – linked above – and is not necessarily a representative of opinions held by anyone at Empire of the Kop…

Recently, I posted a tweet expressing my support for Fenway Sports Group. They are by no means perfect, but I feel they’ve been getting a bit of a hard time lately. The tweet did not go down well. In fairness, I probably deserved more stick. FSG are testing the patience of most Liverpool fans at the moment. And, as we all know, Twitter is the kind of place where if you express your preference for marmite, somewhere a militia will form and threaten to come to your house to cut out your tongue and staple it to your forehead. Nevertheless, I am going to attempt to put an argument together here that John Henry Read the rest

Introduction

 

A dramatic crash between title protagonists Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen that took both drivers out of the race cleared the way for Daniel Ricciardo to claim a sensational victory in the 2021 Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix, giving McLaren their first race win since the 2012 Brazilian Grand Prix – and a one-two to boot, as he led home teammate Lando Norris, with Valtteri Bottas taking third, in a thrilling race at Monza.

Hamilton was exiting the pits on Lap 26 of 53 when he arrived alongside Verstappen, the pair going side by side through the Variante del Rettifilo, but making contact, with Verstappen flying through the air and coming to rest on top of the Mercedes. Both drivers were unhurt, but out of the race, with the stewards set to investigate after the 2021 Formula 1 Italian Grand … Read the rest

Speaking exclusively to Empire of the Kop post-match, Collymore explained why he thinks Trent will probably “break all the Premier League records” before he hangs up his boots.

Full-backs were fantastic [against Leeds], Trent Alexader-Arnold with another assist. This kid is probably going to break all Premier League records by the time he’s finished – for assists from a defensive position,” the former Liverpool player said.

[He’s] always prepared to support the attack, the thing I love about Trent is there were a couple of times, be it free-kicks or corners, he didn’t beat the Read the rest

While back in his homeland, Hoever gave an exclusive interview to Voetbal International in which he discussed his time at Anfield and Ajax.

What would have happened if I had stayed at Ajax? Where would I be then? I made that choice once when I was 16 and [joining Liverpool] was the best thing for my development at that time,” the youngster mused.

I have never regretted it for a moment. In retrospect you can say that if I had stayed with Ajax, I would now be competing with [Noussair] Mazraoui or Read the rest
