Fulham manager Marco Silva has been speaking about his side's Anfield defeat while Barcelona is said to have just handed Jürgen Klopp a transfer boost. Here's your round-up of the latest Liverpool news.

Marco Silva makes Anfield admission

Fulham boss Marco Silva was left gutted that his side could not return to London with anything to show points-wise after Liverpool left it late to beat the Cottagers. The Portuguese admitted that he was hoping to make a substitution that could have prevented the Reds scoring their fourth but he was unable to in time.

"We deserved much more from the game than what we take," Silva said during his post-match press conference. "They didn't create many [chances]. Apart from the two goals in the first half, much more controlled from themselves, we planned not to give them space behind our back line and they did not create many. I don't remember one big chance from them in the first half.

"The second half went the same way. They had a big chance on the counter-attack through [Mohamed] Salah and Darwin [Núñez] with that crossbar chance but apart from that, nothing more. We knew that after the changes, the game would be more open to create more chances and we did it in a good style. Our third goal is a very good goal. We knew that the game is not ever 100 per cent under control from these types of sides and this type of crowd in one moment they can make something.

"The game was more or less under control, one long ball, a good second ball from them and another great finish from the edge of the box. In that moment, I knew it was the end of the match. I wanted to make a change quick to calm down the game and to calm the crowd but a mistake from us and they score the fourth goal. The players didn't deserve what they took from the game. Many positives and we have to be proud with what they did."

When Liverpool leveled, Silva was right to think about breaking things up. As soon as it became 3-3, there was an expectation inside Anfield that the Reds would give it everything to find a winner and Trent Alexander-Arnold duly stepped up.

Barcelona 'hands Liverpool transfer boost'

Barcelona has handed Liverpool a potential transfer boost, Mundo Deportivo has claimed, with the Catalan side pulling out of the race to sign Athletic Bilbao forward Nico Williams. The Reds and Aston Villa are both said to be keen on him.

While he signed a new contract earlier this week (Williams' previous deal was set to expire at the end of the campaign), it supposedly contains a reasonable $54m (£43m/€50m) release clause. That would be attainable for most Premier League sides.

Williams, who is still only 21, has made a slow start to the new season and only has two goals to date, but is a talented attacker who has long been touted for a possible move to Anfield. If he was out of contract at the end of the season, clubs abroad could have begun negotiating a free move from January.

But the fact he is no longer set to be available for nothing has ruled Barcelona out as a possible destination. But Liverpool and Aston Villa are still said to be possibilities.
