  10. 'Three games that could shape Liverpool's season'


    Ian Kennedy

    BBC Radio Merseyside sport editor


    Big week for Liverpool coming up – they could make the final of the EFL Cup, progress in the FA Cup and cut the gap between themselves and Chelsea by beating the league leaders next Wednesday. 

    Of course it’s one thing saying it, quite another to do it – but all three games are at Anfield, so getting the home dominance back for these three matches could really shape their season. 

    Swansea not only put a dent not only in their unbeaten home record on Saturday, but perhaps also gave hope to Southampton, Wolves and Chelsea. Liverpool can’t afford to be conceding three goals at home to any team, and they’ll need to find ways of getting past teams that sit deep.

    It’ll be a fine balancing act on Wednesday against Southampton in the EFL Cup where they start the second leg trailing on aggregate. They don’t need to go all out for goals – the deficit is only one when it might have been more – but a goal for Southampton could make it very difficult.  

    Liverpool have certainly got goals in them, so what price three clean sheets over the next eight days?

  11. Deulofeu joins AC Milan on loan


    It was prematurely announced by AC Milan last week but now it's official - Everton's Spanish winger Gerard Deulofeu is joining the Italian club on loan for the rest of the season.

    He scored eight goals in 75 appearances for the Toffees across his two spells.

  18. Haskell thought career might be over...

    James Haskell

    England flanker James Haskell admits he doubted whether he would ever return from the foot injury which kept him out of action for six months. 

     After his long-awaited comeback a fortnight ago was curtailed because of concussion, he played for almost an hour in Wasps' win at Zebre on Sunday. 

     "It's been the hardest six months of my professional career," he told BBC 5 live's Rugby Union Weekly podcast. 

     "There was a time when I thought I was never going to make it back." Haskell had been nursing a long-standing problem with his toe before it finally "gave way" completely late on in the second Test in Australia in June 2016.
