Jurgen Klopp insists Sadio Mane can win the Ballon d'Or as a Liverpool player.

Mane finished fourth in the voting for this year's Ballon d'Or behind winner Lionel Messi, team-mate Virgil van Dijk and Juventus star Cristiano Ronaldo .

Barcelona captain Messi, who won the award for the sixth time, said it was a "shame" that the 27-year-old didn't finish higher in the final standings after previously voting for him to be Player of the Year at the FIFA Best Awards in September.

Asked if he felt Mane was under-appreciated in the game, Klopp said: “Internally, of course not. Across the world? I am not sure.

“The first three in the Ballon d'Or were Messi, Van Dijk, Cristiano and then Sadio. That is a nice row. Having two players in there shows a lot.

"Mo [Salah] was fifth, Alisson seventh. So we obviously played a good season and they had to respect that.

“Sadio is in incredible shape. Since his first day he was an incredibly important player.

"I remember his goal against Arsenal , running down the line, cutting inside and then with the next step with the left foot in the far corner.

“That was an incredible goal and I can still remember that with all the other goals he scored. Each year he has made big steps and he is on a good way.

"I saw that [Franco] Baresi was really positive about Virgil - one of the biggest defenders I can imagine. This is kind of like being crowned by the king, and as an offensive player if Messi says something like this about Sadio then …

“Sadio especially in the game against Barcelona was really impressive. It was like we had three of him on the pitch and he kept that shape.

"If he stays healthy he will have an incredible career in front of him and he can climb that table Ballon d'Or wise. He is in a very good way and I am really happy for him."

Chelsea, Man City in contact with Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele

Chelsea and Manchester City are being linked with Barcelona attacker Ousmane Dembele.

El Desmarqe says Dembele's agent, Moussa Sissoko, has "met with executives from Paris Saint-Germain, Chelsea and Manchester City".

This has not gone down well with Barca, who are now keen to ship him out at the end of the season.

But with Chelsea now cleared to loosen the purse strings after Christmas, they could move in for a cut-price deal for the Frenchman.

Chelsea are now free to bring players in when the transfer window re-opens in January.

Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe: Criticism normal for way I'm playing

Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe: Criticism normal for way I'm playing

Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe concedes his form hasn't been good enough.

Still without a goal in open play, the Ivorian hasn't come close to living up to his £72million transfer fee after four months at Arsenal.

Afterwards defeat to Brighton, he told RMC Sport: "I would say that my start has been a bit negative.

"Based on my own expectations of myself, I expected a bit more. I expect more and it is up to me to work hard and make the difference in each match.

"It is normal for people to criticise me as much as they are doing because I am not making the difference in each match.

"I understand them. It is certainly up to me to reverse this situation through hard work.

"There are lots of aspects that I need to improve.

"Scoring more quickly, taking the opportunities to score that I've been missing. It's like that, that's football.

"I also need to improve on the physical aspect because coming from France to England, there is this box-to-box aspect that you have to take into account."

Arsenal attacker Pepe: Ljungberg understands us better

Arsenal attacker Nicolas Pepe admits seeing Unai Emery sacked was "painful".

Emery signed Pepe from Lille over the summer.

Afterwards defeat to Brighton, he told RMC Sport that the players were still adjusting to caretaker manager Freddie Ljungberg's methods.

He said, "As [Ljungberg ] was a player, he understands us better.

"He speaks a lot with us, so for us it is quite simple for us to understand him like for him it is quite easy to understand us.

"It was painful because [Emery] is a coach who gave me the chance to come to Arsenal. We mustn't forget that. For me, it was something painful."
