Jurgen Klopp added, Divock Origi will not just leave Liverpool. He will move to another club with a status that cannot be easily obtained by other players, namely a legend.
“He was and will forever be a Liverpool legend, one of the most important players I’ve ever had. It sounds really strange considering the number of games he has had but it was and is a pure joy to work with him. It’s not over yet – just Premier games. The last league – but he deserves all the good thoughts we can somehow generate for his future, and wherever he goes he will be successful, 100%.”
“What an amazing player, an amazing kid, everyone in the team loves him because he’s such an easygoing guy and a really fun guy. It’s going to be a tough time when he actually leaves, it won’t happen now, but whenever it is.” it’s going to be difficult,” he said.
“Since I’ve been here, Div has been here. I remember a lot of things when I think about the incredible Div, some important goals, some serious injuries, ups and downs. He is a Liverpool legend, no doubt about it,” Klopp said.
Premier League club Arsenal are starting to prepare for the 2022/23 season. The team from North London have officially launched their home jersey for next season.
For the 2022/23 season, Arsenal is still working with the German apparel provider, Adidas. This is the third year Adidas has produced the Arsenal shirt.
For next season’s home jersey, Arsenal are still using the red and white color combination which is their trademark. The sponsorship is still the same, namely Fly Emirates is the main sponsor of this Jersey and Visit Rwanda is on the sleeve.
One thing that makes this jersey interesting is that it uses a white collar with red lightning accents. It’s been a long time since Arsenal didn’t wear the collar on their home jersey.
Check out the information about the Arsenal home jersey below.
Chelsea will host Leicester City in the postponed match week 27 of the Premier League 2021/22, Friday 20 May 2022. The Premier League match at Stamford Bridge is scheduled to kick-off at 02:00 WIB.
One win from the remaining two matches will ensure Chelsea finish in third place. For Chelsea, who just lost to Liverpool on penalties in the FA Cup final, third place can be a bit of a treat for disappointment.
However, beating Leicester is not an easy mission for the Blues. Because, Leicester are in good form after successively beating Norwich 3-0 and Watford 5-1. The striker Jamie Vardy scored two goals each in those two games.
In the 12th week, Chelsea won 3-0 at home to Leicester through goals from Chelsea Antonio Rudiger, N’Golo Kante, and Christian Pulisic.
This time, instead of serving Leicester at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea should also be able to win. However, if you look at their recent performance, it will be a little difficult to get the three points.

This season has been quite a disappointing season for Juventus. Together with coach Massimiliano Allegri, the Bianconeri failed to win a trophy.
In Serie A, Juventus can no longer compete in the race for the Scudetto. In the Supercoppa Italiana final, Juventus were defeated by Inter Milan 1-2 in extra time. In the Champions League, Juventus were eliminated by Villarreal in the round of 16. In the Coppa Italia final, Juventus were also defeated by Inter in extra time with a score of 2-4.
Juventus director Pavel Nedved has reportedly complained to club president Andrea Agnelli about Allegri’s incompetence. Nedved’s disappointment is also in line with the majority of Bianconeri supporters.
However, Agnelli is said to not be sacking Allegri. He will continue to manage Juventus next season.
Reported by Football Italia, there are at least three reasons underlying Agnelli’s decision.
Still Believe Allegri
The first reason is that Agnelli still believes in Allegri. Agnelli believes that Allegri is still the most suitable person to handle the Bianconeri.
As is known, Juventus left by Cristiano Ronaldo to Manchester United at the beginning of the season. Losing a goalscorer like Ronaldo has put Juventus in quite a difficult situation.
In a transitional period like this, the work of the coach who had brought Juventus to 11 championship titles was also considered not entirely disappointing.
This season is the first of Allegri’s second spell at Juventus. By the club, he is contracted until 2025.
Juventus gave Allegri €7 million per season plus bonuses. The contract is quite expensive.
If Juventus sack Allegri after only one season, then the compensation they have to pay is quite large.
Qualify for Champions League
Juventus‘ journey this season has encountered many obstacles. Apart from being left behind by Cristiano Ronaldo, even though Juventus did not prepare a replacement, they are also often hit by a storm of injuries.
One of the players whose injury made Juventus lose a lot is Federico Chiesa.
These situations have a major impact on Allegri’s work in concocting teams to get optimal results. However, even so, Allegri is still able to bring Juventus to a confirmed top four finish in Serie A and qualify for the Champions League next season.
It’s natural that Agnelli still believes in his abilities.
This weekend, there will be a fierce duel for the 2021/2022 FA Cup title. Yes, Chelsea will meet Liverpool in the final at Wembley Stadium, Saturday (14/5/2022) night at 22:45 WIB.
Previously, Liverpool managed to get rid of Manchester City in the FA Cup semifinals. The Reds won 3-2 over The Citizens, through Ibrahima Konate’s goals, and two goals from Sadio Mane.
While Chelsea advanced to the top party after ejecting Crystal Palace with a score of 2-0 in the semifinals. Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Mason Mount scored two goals for Chelsea.
For both teams, this meeting will also be a repeat of the Carabao Cup final this season. Liverpool came out as champions at that time by winning on penalties 11-10 (0-0) at Wembley Stadium, February 28, 2022.
It’s worth waiting for who will come out victorious in the 2021/2022 FA Cup final between Chelsea and Liverpool this weekend.
2021/2022 FA Cup Final
Chelsea Vs Liverpool
Saturday, 14 May 2022
Kick-off: 22.45 WIB
Chelsea is expected to appear with full strength in the FA Cup final match. Thomas Tuchel has no worries about playing his main 11 mainstay. The remaining EPL matches do not determine anything for the Blues. On the other hand, Jurgen Klopp in the Liverpool camp still has to think about the condition of the players before determining the starting line-up.
The reason is, the Reds still have to play the remaining 3 Premier League matches and face Real Madrid in the UCL final. However, the Liverpool squad is filled with high confidence after successfully beating Aston Villa 1-2 on Tuesday (10/5) night. The Reds had trailed 1-0 early in the game before turning things around through goals from Joel Matip and Sadio Mane.
In that match, Klopp did not field his best squad. Thiago, Mohamed Salah, and Firmino were not introduced since the start of the match. This is recognized by Klopp as something difficult to do. However, in the end it yielded positive results. “I’ve known the players for a long time – if I asked them they would all say, ‘I can play’, so I didn’t ask. I have to make this decision myself,” explained the German coach. “Now we have to recover, really recover and then play in the FA Cup final because obviously there is no mercy anywhere. We caused this situation to happen by qualifying for all the finals, which is obviously something really big.” .
Liverpool must be wary of Chelsea’s strength. Moreover, the Blues will welcome the match later with a mission of revenge. In the Carabao Cup final last February, the London Blues lost to the Reds with a score of 11-10 on penalties. However, before realizing the revenge mission, Chelsea still have to undergo 1 match from the EPL event this week. Precisely on Thursday (12/5) early morning, the Blues will face Leeds at Elland Road Stadium.
This will be the 4th meeting between the two teams this season. On a number of occasions, the battle between the two teams was always tight. The previous three matches have always ended in a draw in normal time. Most recently, in February, Chelsea met Liverpool in the Carabao Cup final. Both played a goalless draw throughout 90 minutes of normal time and 2×15 minutes of extra time. In the end, the Reds managed to become champions after winning the penalty shootout with a score of 11-10.
Arsenal will try to secure a final ticket to the 2022-2023 Champions League from fellow North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.
Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal meet in the postponed match of week 22 of the English League 2021-2022 season at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, London, Thursday (13/5/2022) local time or Friday 01.45 WIB.
Arsenal are currently in fourth place in the Premier League standings with 66 points.
Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur followed in fifth position with 62 points.
If they win, Arsenal will certainly finish in the top four of the Premier League standings.
Fourth place will be Arsenal’s highest ranking at the end of the season since the 2015-16 season when they were runners-up.
After the 2015-16 season, Arsenal have always finished outside the top four.
On the other hand, if Tottenham Hotspur wins, then Spurs still maintain hope of overtaking Arsenal on the condition that they can continue to win in the remaining matches and the Gunners slip.
The struggle for fourth place in the Premier League standings is not the only reason the duel between Spurs and Arsenal promises a fierce match.
The two teams are also tied for rival status among North London teams.
Factors of prestige and competition for decades also added to the weight of the meeting on Friday this morning WIB.
Quoted from BolaSport.com from the official Premier League website, Arsenal’s task is far from easy.
Tottenham Hotspur are unbeaten in their last seven home games against Arsenal in the Premier League.
The Lilywhites won five and drew twice against Arsenal in the Premier League.
It was Spurs’ longest unbeaten streak at home against Arsenal after the period between 1960 and 1968.
At that time, Spurs managed to go nine games unbeaten against Arsenal.
Tottenham Hotspur again make Harry Kane as a pedestal on the front lines.
Harry Kane is the top scorer in the North London derby in all competitions.
He has scored against Arsenal 11 times from 16 matches.
Kane has the opportunity to add to his goals in this match, as well as ending the goal drought in the last two meetings against Arsenal.
In the Arsenal camp, Mikel Arteta lowered Bukayo Saka as a starter.
Saka became one of Arsenal’s goalscorers in the 3-1 win over Spurs in the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium.
The following is the prediction for the English FA Cup final match between Chelsea vs Liverpool on Saturday (14/05/22) evening WIB, the duel between German coaches to win the historic trophy on British soil.
Competing at Wembley stadium, a fierce duel for the trophy from the world’s oldest football championship, the FA Cup, will bring together Chelsea against 6 champions, Liverpool.
Ahead of the meeting between the two teams, Chelsea as a club capable of appearing in the last two FA Cup finals, looks less favored than Liverpool.
Although in the 2011/12 FA Cup final, Chelsea managed to beat Liverpool with a score of 2-1, but throughout 2022, the performance and internal conditions of the Blues are in an unfavorable situation.
After being left by Roman Abramovich as the owner of the club, Chelsea’s performances so far have not found good consistency.
It is evident from Chelsea’s last five matches in all competitions, Thomas Tuchel’s squad has only experienced two wins and two draws.
In contrast to Liverpool, which looks very superior after recording four wins and only one draw from the last five games.
In addition, Chelsea also seemed not to be sheltered by the goddess of luck in the FA Cup final. Where in the last two editions, the Blues failed to win after falling in the top match.
Not only fighting for the prestigious FA Cup title, the Chelsea vs Liverpool duel will also be a competition for German coaches in each team.
In the Chelsea camp, there is Thomas Tuchel who managed to bring the Blues to win the Champions League last season, while at Liverpool there is Jurgen Klopp, who has been at Anfield for 7 years.
Both have flashy achievements on the blue continent, it is interesting to look forward to the duel of fellow English League giants in the race for the FA Cup title this season at the weekend.
Player to Watch Mason Mount (Chelsea) Facing Liverpool which is known to have a tough and difficult defense line, Chelsea is predicted to maximize the speed of its midfielders to provide through passes. One of the players who could be the key to Chelsea’s game later is Mason Mount.
Playing behind the main striker, the 23-year-old midfielder will serve as a liaison between the midfield and forwards and regulate the rhythm of the Blues’ game. Mason Mount’s vision of play has looked very good all season. Evidently, he became Chelsea’s most assists contributor with 16 in all competitions. In addition, Mason Mount also has a pretty sharp goal instinct. Noted, the former Derby County player was able to score 13 goals and became the top scorer for both clubs after Romelu Lukaku.
Mohamed Salah (Liverpool)
Meanwhile in the Liverpool camp, the presence of Mohamed Salah is clearly a serious threat to Chelsea’s defense. The Egyptian player must receive special attention from the Blues defenders. The reason is, throughout this 21/22 season, Mohamed Salah looks to be at his peak of form by scoring 30 goals and providing 16 assists from 48 matches. When meeting Chelsea in the Premier League this season, Mohamed Salah was also very dangerous where he always managed to score one goal from a total of two meetings.
Reflecting on these statistics, it is very clear that Mohamed Salah will be one of the dangerous players for Chelsea and must be wary of the defenders of Thomas Tuchel’s squad. Chelsea Lineup Prediction (3-4-2-1): Edouard Mendy; Trevoh Chalobah, Andreas Christensen, Antonio Rüdiger; Cesar Azpilicueta, Jorginho, N’Golo Kanté, Marcos Alonso; Christian Pulisic, Mason Mount; Romelu Lukaku.
Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Joël Matip, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Jordan Henderson, Naby Keïta, Thiago; Mane, Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah.
