England's concerning lack of depth in central midfield has been thrust into the spotlight after injuries to Jordan Henderson, Harry Winks and Fabian Delph saw Jack Cork called into the squad for the upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

Should you not be instantly familiar, Cork has been a steady presence for Burnley so far this season while contributing no goals and one assist in 11 appearances.

Antonio Conte has put to bed any recent speculation of his immediate future as Chelsea's head coach in his press conference ahead of today's game at Crystal Palace.

I am so glad that the international break is over for two reasons. Firstly, we do not have to put up with being forced to watch Gareth Southgate attempt at leading an England team with Jordan Henderson in it which is bad enough having those two involved and secondly, because of all the crap that comes out of the media regarding the futures of some of our biggest stars.

Five Things We Learned From The Etihad Win

The Liver Bird at related • 0 views
1) We can defend Granted, we conceded after just two minutes but on the whole, Liverpool put on a strong defensive performance. Yes there were a few errors and Karius shouldn't have punched on a couple of occasions but against Man City, at the Etihad, in a semi-final? I think we should be proud to concede just the one.

1) Liverpool have nothing to be embarrassed about Yes we lost and yes it was pretty darn terrible but as far as I am concerned, Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool have nothing to be embarrassed about. That match went perfectly with Mourinho's plan. A couple of long balls and some solid finishing thanks to errors in defence, once United were 2-0 up it was always going to be immensely difficult for the likes of Mane, Salah and Firmino to get through.

The Reds are so unbelievably weak at the back and facing a distinct lack of leadership I just don't think we have enough in the attack to carry us through the season.

Chelsea were well beaten by Liverpool at Stamford Bridge last night with goals from Dejan Lovren and Jordan Henderson in the first half.
