Liverpool ripped up the record books last season on the way to their first English top-flight title in 30 years, but a season marred by injuries and poor form has left the club sixth and trailing leaders Manchester City by 19 points. They, however, should not have a problem against Sheffield United - who have lost 20 of their last 25 games - in the upcoming away game on Sunday. Mane said Liverpool will shift focus to Europe. The Anfield club defeated RB Leipzig in the round of 16 first leg last week.

Arsenal's second leg against Lisbon giants Benfica on February 25 will be played in Greece. The first leg of the last 32 tie on February 18 had already been switched from Lisbon to the Stadio Olimpico in Rome. The moves were made necessary after the British government toughened Covid restrictions and ruled that only essential travel to and from Portugal would be permitted, and suspended flights between the countries. Tottenham's Europa League first leg away to Wolfsberger will be played at the Puskas Arena in Budapest because of restrictions on entry into Austria. The stadium had already been announced as the venue for Champions League first-leg games between RB Leipzig and Liverpool, and Borussia Moenchengladbach and Manchester City , which could not be played in Germany.
Incoming: Adjustments to Competitive Matchmaking Bans
Liverpool have been barred from entering Germany for a Champions League match against RB Leipzig on February 16 because of strict entry rules imposed because of the pandemic, the German interior ministry said Thursday. UEFA 's regulations decree that Leipzig must find a way of hosting the last, first leg match or risk forfeiting it as a defeat, but the planning for the match has been upended by Germany's updated travel restrictions. The new German rules, slated to last until the day after the game, ban travellers from countries hit by new, more contagious, coronavirus variants such as Britain. Though there are some exceptions for medical workers and others in key professions, the interior ministry has repeatedly said that there are "no special provision for professional sportspeople".
