What's trending in world football: Liverpool ticket protest, Lavezzi to China

Paul Mariner thinks the fan protest against Anfield ticket prices may have influenced Liverpool's late collapse against Sunderland.

Here are the top stories from Monday:

LIVERPOOL: Jurgen Klopp (or one of his assistants given Klopp had his appendix removed on Saturday) will speak at 2 p.m. to preview Tuesday's FA Cup replay at West Ham but all the talk is about the ticket protest walkout in Saturday's match. Are Liverpool's owners going to review their decision?

- Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson refused to use the mass walk-out as an excuse for their late capitulation at home to Sunderland.

LEICESTER: Leicester...

Iain Macintosh casts his eye over the best and worst of the weekend Premier League action.

Heroes

How is this happening? How are Leicester doing this? There are only two possible explanations. One is that we've all been horribly, horribly wrong about the Premier League and it is still possible for a team of driven, determined footballers, assembled for a pittance from the bargain bins, to challenge for the title.

The field of 38 clubs in this year's Copa Libertadores, South America's equivalent of the Champions League, contains a grand total of 15 former winners. Two of them, though, have to sweat through the qualifying round, which kicked off last week and concludes this, before they can take their place in the group stage

One of them, Sao Paulo of Brazil, will feel that they have a foot and a half in the next phase. In last Wednesday's first leg, they drew 1-1 away to Cesar Vallejo of Peru.

The S.League received a huge boost with the introduction of all of the LionsXII players for the 2016 season, barring Malaysia-bound Safuwan Baharudin. So the Singapore competition will also be a hunting ground for national team coach Bernd Stange as he puts together a strong squad for November's AFF Suzuki Cup.

Regulars like Hafiz Sujad, Nazrul Nazari and Madhu Mohana will have to bring their A-game in order to not let other players steal their Lions' jerseys.

Sources tell ESPN FC that a preliminary...

Paris Saint-Germain extended their winning run over sworn enemies Olympique de Marseille to nine with a 2-1 win at Stade Velodrome on Sunday. Zlatan Ibrahimovic got Laurent Blanc's men off to a flying start, scoring from an excellent Maxwell cross inside of the opening two minutes.
