Liverpool will have just one fitness doubt as Jurgen Klopp prepares his side to battle wit Manchester for a place in the FA Cup Final on Saturday.
The Reds travel to Wembley to take on Pep Guardiola’s side, in the hope of reaching their first FA Cup Final for a decade. The pair played out a 2-2 draw in a tense Premier League clash last weekend and the Liverpool boss has said he is hoping for an improved performance from his team, this time around.
Liverpool had a fully-fit squad for the league game at the Etihad but Diogo Jota has since been made a doubt for this weekend’s semi–final clash. The Portuguese forward was substituted due to injury against Benfica on Wednesday night.
A group of Leeds fans have taken over the front page of an Argentinian newspaper to pen a letter of thanks to former boss Marcelo Bielsa.
Bielsa was replaced by Jesse Marsch in February after a miserable run of form had Leeds fearing for their Premier League safety – a miserable end to a four-year reign which will live long in the memories of most supporters.
Inter continued their push for the league title against city rivals AC Milan by turning over Spezia 3-1 at the Stadium Alberto Picco – Spezia’s home ground.
Goals from Marcelo Brozovic, Lautaro Martinez and Alexis Sanchez were enough to offset the single Spezia goal scored by Guilio Maggiore and move Inter to within two points of the league leaders with one game in hand.
