Alexander-Arnold fitness boost for Liverpool as Keita also returns ahead of Wolves clash

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he is set to welcome two players back into his ranks from the treatment room

Trent Alexander-Arnold is set to hand Liverpool a timely fitness boost ahead of their home date with Wolves, although Jurgen Klopp is yet to decide whether the right-back is ready to start a game.

The England international has formed part of a lengthy injury list at Anfield over recent weeks.

Alexander-Arnold has been sidelined since picking up a knock in a 1-1 draw at Manchester City on November 8.

Liverpool have taken in four outings since then, across Premier League and Champions League competition, and remain in the hunt for domestic and continental honours.

Their cause is now about to be aided by the return of Alexander-Arnold, who will be looking to take his starting berth back from Neco Williams.

Klopp remains wary of asking too much from a player who has been nursing a hamstring complaint, but he will come back into contention against Wolves alongside midfielder Naby Keita.

Quizzed at his pre-match conference on whether any of his walking wounded are ready to return, Reds boss Klopp said: “I don’t know yet, we will see.

“Trent and Naby will do the first steps in team training today [Friday]; whatever we can do with that depends on how it looks.

“There are some niggles after the game against Ajax and we have to see how they respond.

“So far, they didn’t do a lot apart from treatment and stuff like this. We have to see how that develops [but] I don’t know in the moment.

“There is a chance Naby and Trent can be in the squad, I would say.

“If they can play, I don’t know. If they are in the squad then they can play, but if they can start or play 90 minutes, I don’t know. I think there’s a chance they are in the squad, yes.

“Apart from Naby and Trent, nobody is coming back, no.”

Alisson, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, James Milner and Thiago Alcantara remain among those still stuck on the sidelines, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has been another long-term absentee.

He has been missing since suffering a knee injury in pre-season, but the 27-year-old midfielder is edging his way back towards full fitness.

Klopp added on the England international: “Ox looks really promising, he is doing a lot of stuff.

“He is warming up with the team now, some ball work, a lot of stuff, but we will develop that now over the next few days.

“Then we will see from which moment on it makes sense to throw him in. He is not too far away.”

‘India’s traditional medicine helped boost immunity in COVID-19 crisis’



Narendra Modi posing for the camera: Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that during the Corona crisis, when there was no specific solution against the pandemic, Indian traditional medicinal therapy proved to be very effective in boosting immunity.

“In these difficult times, when there was no specific solution against the Corona, traditional Indian medicinal methods like turmeric, milk, Kadha proved as immunity boosters. It is important that such rich traditional knowledge needs to be integrated into the modern healthcare system. Working on this approach, we have included Ayurved as a prime portion in India’s health policy. In this year’s monsoon session of Parliament, two bills were passed to form the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine and the National Commission for Homeopathy. Even in our new education policy, in medical education, we have emphasised on an integrated approach, where a basic knowledge of Ayurveda in modern allopathic medicinal education and a basic knowledge of allopathy in ayurvedic medicinal education have been stressed,” said the PM.

The Prime Minister was speaking during the virtual dedication programme of Jamnagar-based ITRA and Jaipur based National Institute of Ayurveda (NIA). ITRA was given the recognition as an institute of national importance while NIA, Jaipur was given recognition as a deemed university.

“Today, the fifth Ayurveda Day, is a special both for Gujarat as well as Rajasthan. I wish that both these ayurvedic institutes will emerge as centres for getting Indian traditional medicine global recognition. Ayurveda is gaining more and more importance globally whether it is America or Germany. Today Brazil’s policies have included Ayurved. Even the WHO has chosen India as the Global Centre for traditional medicine and I thank Doctor Tedros Adhanon Ghebreyesus for choosing India. I believe that India will emerge as a leader in global wellness,” the PM added.

“In 21st century India, the challenges of health are being solved with holistic approach and wellness is focused more in preventive medicine. Our government is focused on these areas. On the one hand cleanliness, sanitisation, clear water, smoke-free cooking and on the other hand more than 1.5 lakh health and wellness centres are being set up across the nation where more than 12.5 thousand centres are solely based on Ayurveda,” added Modi.

“In these times, when we need to focus on an integrated approach of combining Indian traditional medicine with modern medicine, I request the ministry of education and also the UGC to prepare and workout integrated doctoral and postdoctoral syllabus based on this integration,” added Modi.

Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani, who was present at the dedication function at Jamnagar Institute, said, “I thank the Prime Minister and the Union Minister of State of Ayurveda, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homeopathy, Shripad Naik for giving recognition to our Ayurveda university. We are glad and proud that our state university is getting such a recognition. Gujarat has a rich history of ayurvedic knowledge. Even before independence, there were Ayurveda schools across many parts of the

Liverpool set for fitness boost ahead of Manchester City Premier League clash

Klopp: Playing Man City one of the ‘most difficult games in the world’

Liverpool are set to welcome back a key influence for Sunday’s trip to Manchester City.

The Reds go to the Etihad Stadium looking to return to the top of the Premier League ahead of the forthcoming international break, and knowing that a win would see them strike a huge blow in the title race.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have lost on each of their last three trips to the Etihad in the league, although last season’s 4-0 defeat did come in the days after they had been celebrating winning the title for the first time in 30 years.

One of the key developments since that title win has of course been the serious knee injury sustained by star defender Virgil van Dijk, but Klopp seems set to welcome back Joel Matip for the visit to Pep Guardiola’s side.

Klopp saw his side beat Atalanta in the Champions League in midweek

Liverpool’s last three matches have each seen a different player start alongside Joe Gomez in the centre of their defence, with Fabinho starting the Champions League clash against FC Midtjylland before going off injured.

The Brazilian was then replaced by Nat Phillips for last Saturday’s Premier League win over West Ham, and then with Phillips not registered for the Champions League it was teenager Rhys Williams who came in for the midweek trip to Atalanta.

Now though, it appears that Matip will return to the side to partner Gomez and make his first appearance since last month’s Merseyside derby.

Matip has been back in training with the Reds

He started that game with Gomez coming on for the injured Van Dijk, but incredibly this clash at the Etihad seems likely to be the first time that Matip and Gomez start together in the heart of the Liverpool defence.

Klopp faces a dilemma over who to select in attack, with the in-form Diogo Jota and mainstay Roberto Firmino both hoping to start alongside Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.

Go Insurance and Indiana University School of Medicine Team Up to Boost Car Safety for Kids

Go Insurance and Indiana University School of Medicine Team Up to Boost Car Safety for Kids

App-based auto insurance company launches car seat giveaway for Indiana families in need, as report finds Indiana is the fourth least safe US state for child passengers

Go Insurance, an auto insurance company revolutionizing insurance by using data analytics to make roads safer and save customers time and money, announced today that it is teaming up with Indiana University School of Medicine to provide free car seats for families in need. This giveaway is part of Go Insurance’s newly launched national child passenger safety program, which works to ensure every caregiver in America is equipped with the best tools to safely transport the children they care for in a secure, properly installed car seat.

Go Insurance is launching the program in collaboration with child passenger safety experts in three states with high rates of injuries and fatalities for child passengers. The company is granting a total of $40,000 to Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, and Cook Children’s Medical Center in Fort Worth, TX, to distribute brand new car seats to local families in need.

To kick off the giveaway, there will be a car seat distribution event on Saturday, November 7 in Hobart, IN, at Hobart Fire Station #1, 401 East Tenth Street — the first of two in the state this month. Car seat distributions will continue in Indiana into 2021.

Go Insurance’s child passenger safety initiative was created in response to a report released by the nonprofit Go Safe Labs, showing that Indiana is the fourth least safe state in the nation for children traveling in passenger vehicles. Between 2015 – 2018, Go Safe Labs found that 383 children were injured or killed in traffic accidents in the state, with 73 percent of accidents occurring in rural areas and 27 percent in urban areas. The group analyzed publicly available data from government sources involving over 300,000 people involved in fatal accidents to find the top states with the most child injuries or fatalities.

“Providing car seats to families in need is part of Go Insurance’s commitment to keeping everyone safe on the road in Indiana and across the nation,” said Kevin Pomplun, Co-Founder and CEO of Go Insurance. “Car seats save lives. Every family should have access to a properly installed, high quality car seat to keep their kids safe.

Rodriguez gives Everton fitness boost ahead of Man United clash

(Reuters) – Everton midfielder James Rodriguez will return to the squad for Saturday’s Premier League home game against Manchester United having missed their defeat by Newcastle United last weekend through injury, manager Carlo Ancelotti said.

Premier League – Everton v Liverpool

Rodriguez, who joined Everton from Real Madrid in the close season for a reported 20 million pounds ($26.29 million), has made a bright start to life at Goodison Park, contributing three goals and three assists in six league games this season.

“He is going to play tomorrow and I hope he can do his best, Ancelotti told a news conference on Friday.

“I don’t know if he’s 100% (fit), but we need him. Physically he is OK, he has recovered from the little problem he had.

“If there was a doubt, he wouldn’t play. There is no risk for another injury.”

Ancelotti added that captain Seamus Coleman (hamstring) and centre back Mason Holgate (toe) were available, while Lucas Digne returns from his one-match suspension.

Fabian Delph is out with a minor knock, while Brazilian Richarlison remains sidelined as he serves the final game of his three-match suspension.

Everton are looking to return to winning ways after successive defeats by Southampton and Newcastle but Ancelotti expects a tough test against Manchester United, who finished third last season.

United are 15th in the standings after a dismal start to the new campaign but have picked up six of their seven points away from home.

“It is a great opportunity to forget these two defeats and to stay at the top (end) of the table,” he said. “It is true they (United) have been up and down but some games they played really well. We have to expect a team with strong motivation.”

Soccer-Matip and Keita hand Liverpool fitness boost ahead of Atalanta test

Nov 2 (Reuters) – Joel Matip and Naby Keita have returned to Liverpool first-team training but manager Juergen Klopp is yet to decide if both will be available for Tuesday’s Champions League encounter with Italian side Atalanta.

Matip is poised to hand Liverpool a timely fitness boost as Klopp hopes to navigate his squad through a central defence injury crisis, with both Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk out of contention.

Van Dijk underwent a successful knee surgery last week after damaging his ligaments against Everton.

Keita is also set to be part of the travelling group to Bergamo for Liverpool’s third match in Champions League Group D, but fellow midfielder Thiago Alcantara is yet to return to training.

“Naby and Joel trained yesterday with the team, full, Thiago didn’t. So, that’s the situation,” Klopp told a news conference.

“I have really no idea what I do with this information in the moment because yes, they trained, that’s good, it’s better than if they don’t train. But we have to see what we do with it.

“We have another day to make these decisions. A lot of players will be on the plane hopefully, and so decisions will be made late, late, late.”

Atalanta, renowned for their high-octane pressing style under coach Gian Piero Gasperini, defied expectations last season to reach the Champions League quarter-finals.

Klopp said Atalanta are Liverpool’s “biggest challenge in Europe so far” and compared the Italian outfit to Premier League’s Leeds United.

“With all Atalanta have done in the last few years, they are a settled team and they are very difficult to play against,” Klopp said.

“They are similar to Leeds in the way they set-up.

“They are a proper fighting unit. They have all our respect and I know how good they are.” (Reporting by Hardik Vyas in Bengaluru Editing by Christian Radnedge)
