Liverpool Thrash Jordan Ayew’s Crystal Palace FC By Seven-Goal

Published

on

Inform defending Premier League champion; Liverpool laid down a marker to the Premier League’s chasing pack with a thumping 7-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.

It’s the first time in the club’s history that Liverpool has won by seven goals away from home in the English top-flight, adding yet another record to this side’s illustrious catalogue of accolades.

Liverpool’s victory puts the team six points clear at the top of the Premier League, but more importantly, it signals that Jurgen Klopp’s side may well be back to its very best.

The Reds have struggled at times to replicate the scintillating form that saw them win the title at a canter last season, in particular looking shaky in defense.

However, despite the absence of two of its main defenders in Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez — the former likely out for the rest of the season — Liverpool has navigated the recent congested fixture list expertly.

Though the wins and the points have flowed, the football on the pitch has been far from perfect. Saturday’s win, however, is an ominous sign to those hoping to dethrone Liverpool that Klopp has once again got this team to click.

Ex-GFA Boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi Reacts To Dede Ayew’s ‘Senior’ Players Comment

Former Ghana Football Association president, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has stated that Black Stars captain Dede Ayew only expressed his opinion on senior players being selected for Ghana’s final World Cup squad.

According to Nyantakyi, who makes the squad is a decision made by the head coach, and Dede Ayew’s opinion has no bearing on that.

Nyantakyi explained to Kings TV that Ayew’s comment was not definitive because he used the word “may.”

“The coach has the final decision. What Dede Ayew said was just his opinion and it doesn’t mean that is what the coach will do. Because he(Dede) is not a coach. Even with what he said, he used ‘may’,” he said.

” He(Dede) said the senior players ‘may’ be able to earn the coach’s selection. But it doesn’t mean it is automatic because there have been instances where senior players were dropped for younger players, while younger players have also been dropped for senior players. So, it all depends on the strategy of the coach. We don’t select players based on age or experience only, but the player’s performance in totality, that is what the coach will consider,” he added.

Dede Ayew, in a previous interview with the Daily Graphic, stated that the current senior players in the squad may have an advantage when it comes to selection into the team for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Dede Ayew said that selection into the team is based solely on merit and that no one is guaranteed a place in the team.

“The newcomers are talented, but we already have a strong team that qualified for the World Cup, so every position is competitive. Apart from senior players who may have an advantage, I believe no one is guaranteed a place in the squad just yet”.

Ajax Want To Qualify From The Group Stage – Mohammed Kudus

Ajax midfielder, Mohammed Kudus, says the target for his side is to make it past the group stage of the UEFA Champions League this season.

Ajax started the 2022/23 season well, beating Rangers with a 3-0 scoreline in their opening game before losing to Liverpool in the second game.

The Eredivisie side current sits second in the group with three points, three behind Napoli who are top of the group after wins in their opening two games.

But Kudus, who has scored in both games so far in the competition believes despite a good start, Ajax need to do more and qualify from Group A.

“We are not done yet, it’s a long way to go,” he told Ajax’s media team.

“Most importantly is about getting the three points and getting out of the group stage, so that is the team’s goal and when that happens, the individual stuff will come naturally so the target is to get out of the group stage for now.”

“Champions League and World Cup I think are the two biggest competitions we all dreamed about playing so it’s a dream come true but also having an impact and then trying to help the team,” he added.
