Cheap Harry Wilson Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

Quite a few Liverpool fans wanted to see Harry Wilson as a part of Jurgen Klopp’s first-team squad this season but the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri put a stop to those hopes.

It was always going to be difficult for the 21-year-old to break through Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane to grab a slot on the wing but he could have made a decent squad option.

£13m was spent to sign Shaqiri from Stoke City, however, with Klopp seemingly wanting a more experienced winger to play back up to his front line.

With several Championship sides wanting to take Wilson on after his spell with Hull City last season, Derby County and new boss Frank Lampard were eventually seen as the right destination.

And Wilson has shone there, scoring goals and, perhaps most importantly, demonstrating that he can offer Liverpool something in a variety of positions.

The Welshman has played all over midfield under Lampard – centre midfield, left wing, right wing, and as a #10 – scoring from every position.

That’s a skill that will stand him in very good stead at Anfield; suddenly Wilson has gone from a decent squad option on the wing to being able to play a role in several places.

But the truly exciting thing for Liverpool and their fans is undoubtedly the quality of the goals Wilson is scoring.He’s been banging them in from all angles this year, producing some truly remarkable strikes for club and country.It’s not often that loans work out for Liverpool – it’s difficult to think of the last player who went away and returned to make it at Anfield – but Wilson’s time at Derby certainly is.

He’ll end up being far more than just a decent squad option if he keeps showing this kind of ability.

Cheap Danny Ings Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

Southampton ended Arsenal’s 22-match unbeaten run on Sunday as Charlie Austin came off the bench to head Ralph Hasenhuttl to his first victory as Saints manager with a surprise 3-2 win for the hosts at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Danny Ings surprised a porous Gunners backline with two headers before the break to put them in a 2-1 lead, as Henrikh Mkhitaryan recorded with a header of his own before his deflected effort rolled in after 53 minutes to level.

Austin came on in Ings’ place and made the most of Bernd Leno’s decision to come for the ball with only five minutes left, heading past the German for a deserved three points. Hasenhuttl’s first win as Southampton manager lifts Saints outside the relegation zone and up to 17th, while Arsenal remain fifth following their first defeat in all competitions since August.

Laurent Koscielny Return Can’t Cover Frail Arsenal Defence

Arsenal fans would have been overjoyed to see club captain Laurent Koscielny return to their Premier League lineup for the first time since April, when he suffered the Achilles injury that’s kept him sidelined since.

It was much needed considering defenders Sokratis Papastathopoulos, Shkodran Mustafi and Rob Holding are all either injured or suspended, although it wasn’t the defensive performance—individually or as a team—that fans sought.

Unfair as it may be to criticise a defender after seven months injured, it was on the key occasions that Koscielny’s lack of match preparedness showed. For example, his decision to try clearing Matt Targett’s curling cross for Ings’ first goal with his foot—rather than his head—drew confusion:He completely lost Ings’ run for the Southampton striker’s second, although Stephan Lichtsteiner also had some responsibility in failing to pick up the run:Granit Xhaka also had some culpability in what was a forgettable defensive display from the visitors. Xhaka was started by manager Unai Emery on the left of a back three, with Nacho Monreal ahead. It may have been better to swap those two or give youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles a chance in Xhaka’s place.

Injured full-back Hector Bellerin was hooked in place of Alexandre Lacazette at half-time, with Koscielny and Xhaka left to form the centre-back partnership in a back four. Arsenal blogger YankeeGunner wasn’t a fan of the tactic:
Statistician Orbinho explained how Emery’s attack has thus far been able to make up for the lack of structure at the back, although key absences clearly took their toll at St. Mary’s:Leno made the choice to come and claim Shane Long’s floated cross in for Austin’s late intervention, but there was again a sense of indecision among the defenders, who failed to deal with the Englishman’s run.

Recruitments were made in the summer to bolster Arsenal’s options, but even with Koscielny back fit, it’s clear that’s where further investment is needed for the Gunners.

Danny Ings Will Prove a Saints Bargain at £20 Million

Although Ings is officially on loan at St. Mary’s this season, it was reported at the time of his transfer that the deal—an initial £18 million with £2 million in add-ons—would go through permanently in July 2019.

It’s an agreement that will prove hugely valuable to the Saints, who now have a capable tactician in Hasenhuttl, one able to get the best out of a clearly frustrated talent in Ings.

The 26-year-old now has six goals this season, and while Arsenal’s defence has encountered criticism, there’s a lot to be said for his mentality in standing up to one of the Premier League’s elite.

Not only that, but the double helping will have undoubtedly reminded the striker of just how lethal he can be against big opposition, a key confidence boost for any striker, per Squawka:Hasenhuttl demonstrated his own class by withdrawing one English scorer for another and eventual match-winner Austin, but it was Ings’ performance that stood out for the home side:After four matches out with an injury, Ings could hardly have asked for a better return to the side than by bringing his record up to three goals in his last three league games.

Saints have shown signs of improvement under Hasenhuttl, but Sunday saw them turn promise into points, with Ings primed to get over his Anfield disappointment and blossom under the new regime.

What’s Next?

Arsenal won the first north London derby of the season earlier in December and will face Tottenham Hotspur again in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday. Southampton aren’t back in action until Saturday, when they travel to Huddersfield Town in the Premier League.

Cheap Danny Ward Liverpool FC Soccer Jersey/Shirt/Hoodie/Hat Wholesale

A successive shootout triumph in the Carabao Cup gives Leicester City faithful – not to mention, the squad and staff – a sense of good fortune or luck being firmly on their side. In a second choice lineup from manager Claude Puel, understudy goalkeeper Danny Ward stood out as a top performer – for consecutive games.

Ward is used to biding his time: playing only three times for Liverpool’s senior side on three occasions in six years on Merseyside. At present, he is Leicester City’s backup ‘keeper to Kasper Schmeichel – an honoured and revered member of the Foxes’ squad. Yet, the Welsh international cannot give a better showing of himself, than has been positively exposed.Subsequently to saving the final Southampton penalty during Tuesday’s League Cup win, Ward spoke to media about his performance:

“You’ve just got to pick away and try and try and read where they’re going and go full throttle at it really,” he continued.

“There’s no real secret to it, you can do all the analysis on it and look at hundreds and hundreds of penalties, but at that moment, you’ve got to have the feeling and thankfully I’ve managed to save one. Everyone was brilliant tonight and I think we deserved to win.”

 

There is no denying this goalkeeper’s calibre as a competent player, and likable person – preferring to praise his teammates. Rather than take the entirety of plaudits.Incidentally, as well as speaking on gow the club progressed to the business end of the competition, the 27-year-old also spoke – typically unassumingly – about his inspiring save from a tremendous free-kick: “..it was nice to play my part in that as well.”
Could Ward ever oust Kasper Schmeichel?

Well, three clean sheets – including some great saves – and two penalty shootout wins – including some marvellous stops – is incredible form. However, Kasper Schmeichel is the indisputable Leicester City No.1.; there is now easy way to replace someone of his standing at a club. Only injury or displays of a severe lack of quality for a significant period for the Dane would hand the Welshman initiative.The Blue Army can speculate, comfortably, that Schmeichel will continue in his role as vice-captain and as the main man in-goal. Leicester City versus Manchester City takes place on December 18, kick off is 7:45pm GMT.
