Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League leaders will have home advantage in the cup Merseyside derby, which will take place between January 3-6.

Holders Manchester City landed a home tie against Port Vale, while Manchester United will visit Wolves, the club that knocked them out of last season’s competition at the quarter-final stage.

Cristiano Ronaldo has Maurizio Sarri issue and Juventus are covering it up - Serie A hero

Cristiano Ronaldo has Maurizio Sarri issue and Juventus are covering it up - Serie A hero

Cristiano Ronaldo is frustrated with Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri and the club is trying to cover it up, according to Antonio Cassano. Ronaldo was substituted twice in a row against Lokomotiv Moscow as well as AC Milan by Sarri and that is said to have caused immense reaction.

Cassano believes that the Portugal international is now “irritated” after those two switches and has a “big problem” with the former Chelsea boss.

The ex-Roma and Real Madrid star also argues that Juve are very aware of the situation and are trying to cover it up.

Cassano told Tiki Taka: "I think Cristiano has a big problem with Sarri.

I think Cristiano has a big problem with Sarri

Antonio Cassano

“Everything was born from the two consecutive substitutions, he is irritated by a player of his gender.

“In my opinion, there is a problem and Juventus has been brilliant covering him.”

Ronaldo has been experiencing a slight dip in form as he scored his first goal in a month against Sassuolo on Sunday and that was from the penalty spot.

The Manchester United legend has netted seven goals in 16 appearances this season, which is far from his typical best from previous campaigns in the Premier League with and La Liga with Real Madrid.

That may explain the reason behind his recent substitutions as he couldn’t offer much against Lokomotiv and Milan.

Sarri, though, insists that his relationship with Ronaldo is good and doesn’t mind if his players get angry because that could raise their motivation.

The Italian manager added that he has seen many furious footballers leaving the pitch because of his decisions before and he has learned not to pay too much attention to it.

Sarri said: "The relationship with Cristiano is good, if he gets angry when I take him off the court, it can be positive, he has a strong motivation, I think like [Diego] Simeone.

“I’ve been watching angry players leaving the field for many years, so I don't care in a certain way.”

Nevertheless, Ronaldo is considered one of the favourites to win the 2019 Ballon d’Or.

However, the Portuguese superstar won’t be attending the ceremony at the Theatre du Chatelet in Paris.

Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk are also among the favourites to be crowned the best footballer of the year.
