Liverpool FC news recap: Fabio Carvalho criticism, Alexis Mac Allister award & Mo Salah's welcome

With no more Liverpool games for over a week and a quiet transfer window on Merseyside, there hasn't been an awful lot of jaw-dropping news coming out of Anfield. 

Jurgen Klopp's side won't play until 21 January following their 2-1 victory against Fulham on Wednesday, leaving Liverpool supporters a little bored.

There have also not been too many exciting transfer stories to wet appetites, the Reds not expected to do any notable transfer business this month. However, there's still plenty to talk about.

Here is your Liverpool FC news recap for Friday 12 January.

The youngster certainly didn't do a lot to impress those at the Red Bull Arena, including Leipzig sporting director Rouven Schroder, who has criticised Carvalho's lack of competitiveness.

"Fabio has a great character," said Schroder. "But he realised: ‘OK, there’s a competitor here, I have to do more!’. And we noticed that he didn’t want to face the competition."

Hopefully, Carvalho can have a greater impact with Hull in the second half of the campaign.

That inbox may be getting a tad fuller this evening.
