Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp content with Loris Karius' early displays in goal

Jurgen Klopp is adamant that there are no easy games in the Premier League and expects another tough match with West Brom.
Jurgen Klopp has stressed that his side must be angry in their style of play, but remain patient against West Brom.

Liverpool's new first-choice goalkeeper Loris Karius has been backed to adapt to life in the Premier League by Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

The 23-year-old German has been preferred to Simon Mignolet for the previous four fixtures and has endured some hairy moments, notably struggling with high balls into the box and surviving a misplaced pass to Manchester United's Paul Pogba on Monday.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis will surely have taken notice of the weaknesses Karius has displayed so far and there...

Barcelona face unknown in Cesare Prandelli's Valencia - Luis Enrique

Barcelona will be without Jordi Alba and Gerard Pique, but the FC crew expect them to win easily at Valencia.

Barcelona coach Luis Enrique is wary of the threat posed by an "unknown" Valencia on Saturday after Los Che recently moved onto their fourth manager in less than 12 months with the appointment of Cesare Prandelli.

Former Italy boss Prandelli replaced Pako Ayestaran earlier this month, who himself had only taken over from Gary Neville in April of this year. The English coach succeeded Nuno Espirito Santo last December, while Voro (Salvador Gonzalez Marco) had also held the position as a caretaker...

Patience in Pogba, other slow starters will be rewarded

Jose Mourinho says Paul Pogba has not been discouraged, despite recent criticism of Man United's big-money signing.

The summer transfer season seems like a lifetime ago, and eight games into the Premier League campaign is about the time people start to write off new acquisitions that haven't quite hit their stride. The truth, however, is that that not all slow starts are created equal, and some players simply take a little while longer to get it in gear. So, here are three summer additions that haven't quite hit their expected heights yet, with examples of similar players who show why it's too early to panic.

MANCHESTER -- Pep Guardiola says he would rather quit Manchester City and go back to Spain than change his style of play.

The City boss has failed to win any of his last four games and was beaten 4-0 by Barcelona in the Champions League on Wednesday.

Sergio Aguero was left on the bench at Camp Nou, and Claudio Bravo was sent off for handling the ball outside the box after fluffing a clearance.

Guardiola said it will take time for him and his players to adapt, but he insists he won't change his attacking...

Nani: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo locked in Ballon d'Or battle

Luis Enrique praises Lionel Messi's performance against Man City, but notes such efforts have become the norm for him.

Nani has said he is looking forward to facing "special" Barcelona star Lionel Messi at the Mestalla on Saturday.

But Marca reported the Valencia winger as saying his Portugal international captain Cristiano Ronaldo would provide tough competition in the race for the Ballon d'Or.

Messi scored a hat trick as Barcelona swept past Manchester City 4-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday -- his fourth goal in two games since returning from injury.

And Nani said: "Messi is a special player and there are...
