Leicester’s Youri Tielemans tried his best to get them going against Newcastle and he remains a world-class operator in midfield. It will be intriguing to see if Patson Daka starts or Vardy comes back in. Liverpool team news, injuries, lineup optionsArthur Melo, Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota, Curtis Jones and Roberto Firmino remain out injured, while James Milner is also expected to miss out and Ibrahima Konate may not feature after his late return from the World Cup.
Ronaldo has instead joined Al Nassr to help promote the game in Saudi Arabia (and — not to belabor the point, but — for the $75 million per year). The deal is expected to be formally announced by the club on Saturday. Is now the right time for Ronaldo to make this move? Probably. Even if he doesn’t want to admit it (and he doesn’t) his powers are waning at the top level of European soccer. And that’s okay. Father time catches up with us all. Ronaldo heading to Saudi Arabia, or Major League Soccer, at this point of his career makes perfect sense. He has been linked with a move to Saudi Arabia’s top-flight in the past but it seemed a little early as he still scored 24 goals for Manchester United last season and proved he could deliver spectacular moments at the top level.
That said, Liverpool have won five of their last seven Premier League games and after a poor start to the campaign they are back in the top four hunt. The addition of Gakpo will boost them in the second half of the season and it will be intriguing to see where Klopp lines him up and what combinations they use in attack. The Foxes missed James Maddison against Newcastle and his injury just before the World Cup break was a blow as he continues to recover from a similar knee issue. Jamie Vardy has so often been a thorn in Liverpool’s side over the years and he could be unleashed at Anfield once again.

They are looking to push for a top 10 finish and there remains a really positive vibe around them. In-form players to keep an eye onDeclan Rice is West Ham’s main man but he needs help defensively and for West Ham to start connecting passes to spring their trademark counter attacks which led to their success over the last few seasons. Brentford’s Ivan Toney is the obvious threat up top as he has 11 goals this season and only Erling Haaland and Harry Kane have scored more. Christian Norgaard coming back into midfield was a big boost for the Bees. West Ham team news, injuries, lineup optionsDavid Moyes has said Gianluca Scamacca could return for this clash but Nayef Aguerd returned from the World Cup with a virus so won’t be available. Kurt Zouma (knee) and Maxwel Cornet (calf) are still missing.
This season? Not so much. With Lionel Messi linked with a huge move to Inter Miami in MLS and now Ronaldo potentially heading to Saudi Arabia, the show will go on as two of the greatest players of all time take their talents to new parts of the globe. Al Nassr have the likes of David Ospina, Vincent Aboubakar, Pity Martinez and Luiz Gustavo in their squad and are one of Saudi Arabia’s most successful teams, having won the domestic title nine times.

Previous reports claimed that Ronaldo would be paid $207 million per season. $75 million is not the same as $207 million, but it will surely do anyway.
