“As simple as that”James Maddison gets it wrong on one Liverpool star


James Maddison gets it wrong on both Liverpool red cards as $67m ‘deal in principle agreed’

In a match where Liverpool was reduced to nine men, picking up its third and fourth dismissals of the season, the red cards were somehow not the biggest refereeing talking point — yet amid all the VAR fallout, these decisions warrant attention too.

Maddison gives red card verdict

In the eyes of James Maddison, both red card calls against Liverpool were correct. Speaking to Sky Sports (via The Boot Room), he made his assessment:
Jota’s definitely was [a red card]. The Curtis Jonesone early on got shown on the big screen I think was a red card as well. I’m not sure Jürgen will complain too much about those two.”

Liverpool needs some good news after such a rage-inducing evening yesterday. So we’ll all hope Football Insider is correct in reporting that Trent Alexander-Arnold has agreed a ‘deal in principle’ over a new contract at Anfield.

The new deal will apparently see Alexander-Arnold earn more than $244k (£200k/€230k) per week, placing him among the pack of high-earners in the bracket below Mohamed Salah. ‘Significant progress’ has been made on the deal, which will be worth more than $67m (£55m/€63m) over its duration.

Alexander-Arnold’s current deal runs until 2025. Klopp and the supporters alike will be keen to see him commit his long-term future to Liverpool.
