Liverpool to monitor Salah knock

first_img0Shares0000Mohamed Salah, pictured in November 2017, is the Premier League’s top scorer with 13 goalsLONDON, United Kingdom, Dec 31- Liverpool will assess a knock sustained by star played Mohamed Salah ahead of Monday’s New Years Day clash with Burnley.Salah scored both goals as the Reds came from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 at Anfield on Saturday, but the Egyptian was forced off on 83 minutes. Salah limped slightly as he left the pitch, and won’t be risked against the Clarets if he doesn’t recover sufficiently.Klopp said: “I don’t know in this moment exactly [what it is], but he was limping. That’s never a good sign, to be honest.“We have to see what his problem was. We will see what he can do for the next game.”On whether Salah will be able to maintain his current form all season, having scored his 22nd and 23rd goals for the season, against the Foxes, Klopp added: “Yes, he can keep that standard, for sure. He is still a young player, he can improve.“It’s not about scoring only, it’s about other situations as well. He’s so important for us. But he knows and I know that he couldn’t score if he didn’t have the fantastic support of all the other boys.”He added: “Yes, I think he can keep the standard but that’s normal, all the boys can keep the standard they have in the moment.“It’s not that it’s only a run. The boys show their quality. We did that already a few times, the thing is more to get the results.“That’s what we did tonight. To get this result, the most important thing was the defensive performance, so I’m really happy about the concentration level in all defending moments.“It only showed the desire of the boys to turn this game. I was not happy about the yellow cards but the reaction was cool. It was a good team performance tonight.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

The Fifth Element reimagined as 8bit video game

first_imgThe sci-fi epic The Fifth Element came out in 1997, which was sadly too late to get in on the classic 8-bit era of gaming. Not too worry — the film has been re-imagined as a neat little 8-bit side-scroller by CineFix on YouTube. It doesn’t tell the entire story, but it definitely hits the high points.8-bit gaming was kicked off in 1983 with the release of the original Famicom (later NES), and continued through the early 90s. While the animation made by CineFix this time is mostly 8-bit, there are some more detailed elements in the backgrounds and environments that could be called 16-bit. The channel doesn’t hold itself strictly to one aesthetic or the other — some of its movie adaptations are entirely 16-bit recreations, and others are more 8-bit like this one. The overriding desire is, most likely, to look cool and be true to the source material.The 8-bit version of The Fifth Element created by CineFix picks out some of the more iconic and amusing plot points in the film. There is the opening prologue with the Mondoshawan temple, then it’s on to Korben Dallas and his encounter with the thief with the excellent hat (he doesn’t get the cash). Leeloo’s escape from the government lab is included as well, but then we head right to Zorg’s demo of the ZF-1. Granted, that’s not super-relevant to the plot, but it’s awesome and maybe even funnier in 8-bit.When the climactic battle to retrieve the stones from the Diva goes down, the video goes out of its way to recreate the confusion over guns vs. billiard balls. Clearly you need to have seen the film to get all the jokes and fill in the plot, otherwise it’s just a series of disconnected (but amusing) animations. If nothing else, use this as an excuse to watch one of the most successful French movies ever made.last_img read more
