Minamino debut delayed

Liverpool fans’ hopes of seeing new signing Takumi Minamino in action against Sheffield United will be disappointed.

The Japanese midfielder won’t be eligible to play in Thursday’s game at Anfield because Premier League rules state that new players signed on 1-2 January will not be eligible for Matchweek 21.

However, he will be available for the FA Cup third round clash with Everton on Sunday.
