Liverpool forward, Sadio Mane has revealed that Jurgen Klopp told players to be “angry” as they went into the clash with Bournemouth.
The anger showed as they got off to the perfect start and looked to close the gap on second-placed Manchester United.
Mane put them a goal ahead after seven minutes while Mohamed Salah nodded beyond Asmir Begovic in the Bournemouth goal to double Liverpool’s lead midway through the second half.
And Roberto Firmino completed the job moments from full-time.
The Senegalese told reporters, “Before the game, [the boss] said we have to [show] our quality and be angry because every game is important.
“After the City game, you have to concentrate more because you usually know how it [can go].
“He tried to motivate us like usually and, in the end, everybody was in the right place at the right time to win every ball.
“We played well today and created many chances, scored three goals and it was well deserved.”
Mane also discussed the exploits of fellow goalscorers Salah and Ferminho, adding,
“Incredible. “[Salah] is doing a very good job for us, always scoring.
“We are very happy to have Mo and we are going to help him score more goals. Bobby also scored and I’m happy for him as well.
“But always, the three points is the most important thing.
“I always enjoy playing alongside these great players and if you play with these kinds of players it’s always easy to understand each other.
“They make everything easier.”
Ex-Chelsea Boss Conte To Sue Chelsea Over Delayed Sacking
Antonio Conte is set to take legal action against Chelsea over damage to his career and loss of future earnings following his sacking by the Premier League club, according to reports on Friday.
Conte is believed to be furious Chelsea made him return to pre-season training before finally dismissing him last week to make way for the arrival of new boss Maurizio Sarri.
The Italian, who spent just two years with the Blues, was widely reported to be facing the sack for much of last season after the breakdown in his relationship with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich and the club’s hierarchy.
But Conte was made to wait 55 days after Chelsea’s FA Cup final win over Manchester United before he was axed.
After winning the Premier League in his first season at Stamford Bridge, Conte presided over a dismal collapse the last term, with Chelsea finishing fifth and missing out on a place in the Champions League.
Conte is believed to have received a £9 million pay-off for the year he had remaining on his Chelsea contract, yet the Times reports the former Juventus coach is keen to get additional compensation.
That could trigger an ugly legal battle, with Conte’s lawyers reportedly set to claim the west London club cost their client a year of his career, as all the top management jobs in Europe have been filled.
Real Madrid were believed to be interested in Conte after Zinedine Zidane left in May, while the Italy job was also available earlier this year.
The Times also reported Chelsea have threatened to withhold Conte’s contract settlement due to repeated criticism of his employers over their failure to back his transfer demands.
Jack Wilshere: Arsenal exit was my decision
Jack Wilshere claims that it was his decision to leave Arsenal, with the England international having severed ties with the Gunners after 17 years.
A product of the famed academy system in north London, Wilshere has opted to make a fresh start this summer, with a drop into the free agent pool allowing him to link up with West Ham.
It had been expected that he would be committing to fresh terms at Arsenal, with injury struggles put behind him in 2017-18 to figure on a regular basis under Arsene Wenger.
A deal put to him was changed, however, once Unai Emery took the reins at Emirates Stadium, leading Wilshere to reassess his options and ultimately head for the exits.
He told The Independent: “I decided to leave.
“Which was a decision that took some time to come to.”
Wilshere attracted plenty of interest once it became apparent that he would be on the lookout for a new club, with West Ham winning that race as they kept the 26-year-old in London.
“I’ve had a bond with West Ham since growing up as a kid, going to Upton Park, looking up to the players,” added the all-action midfielder.
“Obviously I had to consider all my options – abroad and in England – but once I sat down, it was clear for me.
“They’ve got real ambitions, they’re playing in a big stadium in front of good fans, and we can really build something special.
“As a team, they went through quite a lot last year, but they’re really tight. That’s going to help us going forward.”
Wilshere believes he is ready to play a leading role for the Hammers under Manuel Pellegrini in 2018-19, with his game in a good place despite the fitness issues of his past and England’s decision to leave him out of their World Cup squad.
He added: “In the past, it’s been difficult.
“But over the last couple of years, I’ve had a really good run.
“I went to Bournemouth and had a great time. The idea was just to prove to myself that I can still play at that level.
“Then I came back, and decided to stay at Arsenal and fight for my place, and I played 30-odd games [38 in all competitions]. So I’ve had a good couple of years.”
