Kolo Toure warns Liverpool FC: We must treat AFC Wimbledon with respect Reds defender to play final game before heading for Africa Cup of Nations Kolo Toure has warned Liverpool FC they must treat AFC Wimbledon like Premier League opposition if they are going to avoid a giant-killing act in the third round of the FA Cup. The Reds’ trip to face Neal Ardley’s League Two outfit at the 5,000-capacity Kingsmeadow on Monday night will be the experienced Ivorian defender’s final appearance for the club before he departs for the Africa Cup of Nations. Toure, who fears his month-long absence will dent his hopes of earning a new contract at Anfield, is determined to ensure he leaves on a high by helping the seven-time winners negotiate a tricky tie in the capital. “It’s my final game before I fly off and I want to go to the Africa Nations after giving everything for my team,” Toure told the ECHO. “The FA Cup is very important.

Jonny Evans could start for Manchester United after replacing the injured Chris Smalling during the first half of Monday's win at Southampton. The quintet of Angel di Maria, Luke Shaw, Rafael, Phil Jones and Daley Blind remain on the sidelines. Liverpool's Adam Lallana is available despite having two cracked ribs, while Kolo Toure (groin) should be fit. Mario Balotelli has returned to training and could be involved after a six-match absence with a groin injury. Many wise old sages have stated that it's better to be a lucky manager than a good one, and Manchester United's latest win at Southampton on Monday will have had some thinking that in Louis van Gaal, they might just have both together. His record shows he's good - very, very good - but to see his team win with a performance the Dutchman put mildly himself as "not good enough" suggested being somewhat blessed too. Others went much further, and the numbers backed them up: United had three shots on goal - their fewest in a league game since Opta start ...

Imagine how depressing it'd be if we never had Aly Cissokho, Kolo Toure, Iago Aspas, Oussama Assaidi, Victor Moses and Luis Alberto to joke
Arsenal Football Club is a joke. Well played 2nd half but to concede 3 goals in 1st half is not good enough. We got pushed over, muscled out in Midfield, Ramsey and Cazorla are midgets compared to stoke Midfield. Chelsea has Namanja Matic, Man Utd has Carrick, Southampton has 2, V.Wanyama, and Schneiderlin. City has Kolo Toure. COMBATIVE MIDFIELDERS, winning at the center of the pitch. Arsenal got NOTHING Wenger. *** that left us critical defensively before the season started. Without proper defenders and not one midfielder to protect the back 4. we will not make top 4 this season unless we have serious change in January Break.

Brendan Rodgers' gamble (sort of) pays off Everybody is talking about it, and everybody had an opinion. Some felt Brendan Rodgers' decision to play a so-called second string side was wrong, an insult to both Reds fans and the competition. Others, however, agreed with him, citing the importance of beating Ludogorets and Basel, as well as getting a good result against Chelsea on Saturday. His selection was justified, to a degree. Of course, Liverpool lost but it was those whose inclusions baffled that did well. Lucas Leiva was strong in midfield and did well under the pressure of Real; Emre Can was excellent in midfield and provided the link between defence and attack; Kolo Toure, bar a few moments, was composed and solid. Fabio Borini also led the line admirably; a thankless task against this brilliant side. But Liverpool still lost. They did not have a shot until Alberto Moreno warmed Iker Casillas' hands. They showed more intent, and glimpses of equalising, but did not. And so, Liverpool need to win thei ...

In the middle of the park, Steven Gerrard comes out of the side to be replaced by Lucas Leiva, while summer signing Emre Can is preferred to Jordan Henderson. Martin Skrtel will captain the team. Lazar Markovic replaces Philippe Coutinho and Adam Lallana starts ahead of Raheem Sterling for the clash against the La Liga pace-setters, who have racked up 11 consecutive wins in all competitions.

"Players are here to work and to win trophies," Sagna said."I was watching them (City) celebrating last season and I wanted to celebrate at the same time and win trophies, and the best way to do that is to work, to wake up every day and give the maximum effort". The Frenchman joined Kolo Toure, Gael Glichy, Emmanuel Adebayor and Samir Nasri, who all made the switch from the Emirates Stadium to the Etihad Stadium in recent years.

Liverpool are on course to be in prime condition when the new Barclays Premier League campaign kicks off next month, believes Brendan Rodgers.

Ivory Coast 0-1 Japan John Bennett, BBC World Service reporter in Recife: "Between them, Ivory Coast's front three - Wilfried Bony, Gervinho and Salomon Kalou - scored 50 goals last season. "Behind them, Yaya Toure scored 24 goals for Manchester City. So they should have enough firepower to get back into this game. "Yet again though, they've been let down by their Achilles heel - defending. Sol Bamba and Didier Zokora have never convinced as a centre-back pairing. Kolo Toure will be extremely frustrated to have been left on the bench."
Didier Drogba, Yaya Toure and Kolo Toure have a combined age of 100 years
Bring Ron Vlaar or Stephan de Vrij, give some rest to Skrtel, and put Kolo Toure to think.
Other teams in the Premier League must love Wenger! How many players have moved to other top teams in the league from Arsenal.. Nasri, Clichy, Adebayor, RVP, Kolo Toure, Sagna (more than likely to City)... And now with Cesc wanting a return to Arsenal, Wenger and the board just decline and let him go, to Chelsea by the looks of it... Last season Mourinho didn't even let us near Demba Ba!! Strengthening our rivals like this keeps happening season after season.

Centre half partnership of kolo toure and Martin skrtel is back tomorrow 😏
Depends who the new manager is whether Lallana goes. They wanted Lovren last summer, ended up with Sakho and Kolo Toure!
Lets hope he's more if a Gary Mc than a Kolo Toure.
Former Chelsea forward Salomon Kalou has described how he was protected from backlash during his time with the club, as big players like Didier Drogba were the source of media attention when Chelsea won or lost. He made this declaration during an interview with BBC Sport’s John Bennett. “I was well protected by players like Didier and when things were bad at Chelsea I was not the one to take the blame.” Kalou described his time at Chelsea fondly. “Being at Chelsea was an amazing experience, I arrived there young and I was surrounded by big players and big brothers so I was kind of the little kid.” Salomon Kalou made 254 appearances and scored 60 goals for Chelsea. He spent six seasons with the squad and has to date won all his club-level trophies at Chelsea. The 28-year-old admitted that signing for Chelsea in May 2006 was “the dream moment of my life and I did not want to wake up and find that it was not real.” Since joining Lille of Ligue 1, Kalou has seen his relationship with the media c ...
I'd much rather Sign back kolo toure and almunia
was unreal in Europa League final and played well for Seville! I'd take Richards but just hope it's no another Kolo Toure
Vieira "When you have a leader like Didier Drogba... Yaya Toure, Kolo Toure .. I think you can expect big things from the Ivory Coast."
we finished 2nd place with 33 year old Kolo Toure. Lambo could still put in a good one.
on this day last year I discovered that Liverpool were signing kolo Toure. today it's Rickie Lambert...
Na mate. Not having that. I was on the 'Kolo Toure can do no wrong' train early season.. Until he started doing plenty wrong :/
This some sort of joke ? no Sakho. No Kolo Toure. No Nigerians. What the devil are you chumps playing at?
When the *** is Liverpool gonna get rid of kolo toure. I swear if I see him in a red top next season F off Liverpool, hello Man City
yep, I'm sure that will happen tho, kolo toure is rottin as a defender
Rickie Lambert? This is real? Feel like this is the Kolo Toure buy of the summer, if true.
Are those saying that Lambert will be a decent bit of business the same as those saying Kolo Toure would be "the new Gary Mac"?

‘When you dribble past [Sol]Campbell and [Kolo] Touré in training, you can play!’-Wenger to Van Persie when he 1st joined Arsenal
Adebayor. Kolo Toure. Nasri. Clichy. and imminently . Sagna. . When will we ever revenge? We should start with Edin Dzeko.
Lambert is worth about 2 quid plus aspas and kolo toure
I have a strange feeling that Rickie Lambert will be the new Kolo Toure of our attack.
Lambert wants to do a Kolo Toure at Liverpool.
Sagna did his time far play, ,Kolo Toure went City no one ever booed him, it's the way of the world,
Kolo toure, Keita and lambert ? Are we lookin on swerving the prem and going into the county's veteran league or sutin ?

5 moments that Make Liverpool fail to Win the Premier League This Season: United Kingdom 1. The Slip After beating Manchester City 3-2 at Anfield, Liverpool's fate is in their own hands. They are not to be outdone by Chelsea, and won two games the rest of them. While the first half is likely to end up with a draw 0-0, and Chelsea's strategy a very ultra persist, making possible the final result 0-0 in front of the eye, which makes Liverpool a seeded first to win the League. And simmer 45, misfortune for Liverpool, while Gerrard failed to control the ball or from Mamadou Sakho, and recount when he tried to return in pursuit of the ball. These opportunities are exploited by Demba Ba to deal one on one with Simon Mignolet, result? You certainly already know right? Liverpool still have a chance for their first League win in 24 years. But it seems impossible because it requires help from West Ham United to defeat a City. 2. big mistake Mignolet Manchester City were given a beautiful Christmas gift by Simon Mig ...
