Liverpool FC News Recap: Reds beat Fulham, Mbappe UPDATE, & 2024/25 home kit LEAKED

Liverpool had to fight for it but they turned things around to beat Fulham on Wednesday evening the Carabao Cup. That's one foot in the final ahead of the second leg.

In truth, the Reds weren't particularly good across the 90 minutes and were pretty awful for nearly an hour. The introduction of Darwin Nunez turned the tide, however - the Uruguayan was unstoppable.

A depleted team found a way to win, though, and that's the real story here. The Reds just keep on moving closer to silverware this season.


Post-match quotes

Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Curtis Jones after the game. The Scouser scored the equaliser, albeit from a heavily deflected shot.

But Jones was great all-around, really, in another performance that showed his importance to the team. Klopp couldn't help but laugh at his post-match request for more game time, however.


Two more Liverpool stars targeted by Saudi Arabia

Liverpool defensive duo Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have been discussed as potential summer transfer targets for Saudi Pro League side Al Ettifaq.

According to journalist Ben Jacobs, writing for CaughtOffside, the Dammam-based club are looking at recruiting more of the Reds' stars this year, with Gomez and Matip 'discussed' as part of the club's transfer plans for the summer window.

In addition, ex-Liverpool academy star Ryan Kent, who played for Gerrard at Rangers, is also under consideration.

"Look, I'm not hiding anything," he is quoted as telling RMC. "For sure I want Mbappe to stay. For me he is the best in the world and for me the best club for Kylian is Paris.

"He is the centre of the project today. It's normal to ask about him. For me he is the best in the world, I have a very good relationship with him. Not only as a player, as a person.

"He has an agreement with me, as he has said. There is no negotiation, but I think he is still young, he wants to win many trophies and hopefully with us."

Anfield Watch understands the Reds would only move for Mbappe if Mohamed Salah were to leave this summer.
