Hello, Kickabout fans,

it's Saturday morning,

0:00:240:00:26

which means there's the weekend

to look forward to, but a whole load

0:00:260:00:29

of footy action, too.

0:00:290:00:34

And this week could see a mix

of emotions for English teams

0:00:340:00:37

on the European stage.

0:00:370:00:38

And international action

for the England women's team

0:00:380:00:40

over there in America.

0:00:400:00:41

So, lots to catch up on,

plus all those coming

0:00:410:00:44

up on today's show.

0:00:440:00:47

Ahead of the big lunchtime

kick-off at Old Trafford,

0:00:470:00:49

we ask these two Liverpool

stars your questions, and find out

0:00:490:00:53

who won the Top Tekkers vote

between Martial and Firmino.

0:00:530:00:55

Millwall defender George Saville

tells us about life

0:00:550:00:58

in the championship.

0:00:580:01:02

And there is the usual

fantastic skills and pictures

0:01:020:01:06

from you lot at home.

0:01:060:01:07

I can't wait for today's show,

so let's get started

0:01:070:01:10

with the big stories making

the headlines this week.

0:01:100:01:13

What a mistake this was.

0:01:130:01:19

A Hemel Hempstead town player

was sent off earlier this week

0:01:190:01:26

A Hemel Hempstead Town player

was sent off earlier this week

0:01:260:01:28

after the ref mistook his

name for dissent.

0:01:280:01:30

When Sanchez Watt was asked his name

by the referee, he replied "Watt",

0:01:300:01:33

but the ref thought

he was saying "What?"

0:01:330:01:35

And sent him off for dissent.

0:01:350:01:37

Luckily, though, the card

was rescinded when the situation

0:01:370:01:39

was properly explained.

0:01:390:01:40

England missed out on winning

the She Believes Cup earlier this

0:01:400:01:43

week, after a 1-0 defeat

to the United States.

0:01:430:01:45

Phil Neville's Lionesses needed just

one point against the hosts

0:01:450:01:47

to clinch the tournament,

but lost to Karen Bardsley's

0:01:470:01:49

second-half own goal.

0:01:490:01:57

And in the Europa League,

Arsenal will take a two-goal lead

0:01:590:02:02

back to the Emirates after earning

a 2-0 win over AC Milan

0:02:020:02:05

in their first leg game.

0:02:050:02:06

And in the Champions League,

Manchester City and Liverpool

0:02:060:02:08

comfortably made it

through to the quarterfinals.

0:02:080:02:16

It was heartbreak, though,

for Tottenham, as Juventus produced

0:02:170:02:19

two goals in three second-half

minutes to win 2-1 and knock them

0:02:190:02:22

out of the competition.

0:02:220:02:23

Whilst the other team confirmed

is European champions

0:02:230:02:25

Real Madrid, who saw off PSG.

0:02:250:02:26

So, congratulations to Liverpool

and Manchester City owner but huge

0:02:260:02:29

commiserations to all of you Spurs

fans out there.

0:02:290:02:37

So, congratulations to Liverpool

and Manchester City,

0:02:390:02:41

but huge commiserations

to all of you Spurs fans out there.

0:02:410:02:43

And sticking with stories

hitting the headlines,

0:02:430:02:45

our very own John Farnworth

completed his toughest challenge

0:02:450:02:47

to date this week by juggling

a football all the way to base camp

0:02:470:02:50

of the world's highest mountain.

0:02:500:02:52

Yes, John did nonstop keepy-uppies

at an altitude of over 5,000m

0:02:520:02:54

up Mount Everest.

0:02:540:02:55

Can you believe that?

0:02:550:02:56

It was all to raise money for

charity in memory of his grandad.

0:02:560:03:00

So, John, from everyone here

on Kickabout, huge congratulations

0:03:000:03:02

on a truly incredible achievement.

0:03:020:03:06

And if John's challenge has inspired

you to work on your keepy-uppies,

0:03:060:03:09

then why not send us a video?

0:03:090:03:11

We love seeing you practising your

skills and showing off your talents

0:03:110:03:14

on the footy pitch.

0:03:140:03:15

Just head to the website

for all of the details

0:03:150:03:17

on how to get involved.

0:03:170:03:18

Just like this lot have done.

0:03:180:03:26

A little bit of snow hasn't

stopped Arsenal fan Evan

0:03:270:03:29

hitting top bins here.

0:03:290:03:32

And your favourite player would have

loved those skills, Evan.

0:03:320:03:40

And your favourite player Ozil

would have loved those skills, Evan.

0:03:410:03:44

Check this out for an overhead kick

from Saints fan Owen

0:03:440:03:46

against his sister Macey in nets.

0:03:460:03:48

Very nice.

0:03:480:03:49

And another Southampton fan here.

0:03:490:03:50

A cheeky little flick

from Daisy to start and then

0:03:500:03:53

a slick strike to finish.

0:03:530:03:54

And your favourite strikers

Sadio Mane and Nikita Parris

0:03:540:03:56

would be very happy

with that, Daisy.

0:03:560:03:58

would be very happy

with that, Daisy.

0:03:580:04:00

Check out Paris fan Lorcan

here with these keepy-uppies.

0:04:000:04:01

Farnworth would be

proud of this run.

0:04:010:04:03

And a skill in the middle!

0:04:030:04:05

And a quality finish, too.

0:04:050:04:06

Ollie is a keeper for Kirkham

juniors under sevens.

0:04:060:04:08

What a save!

0:04:080:04:10

And finally, Chelsea fan Oscar

in his wellies in the snow,

0:04:100:04:12

with a lovely finish

into the bottom corner.

0:04:120:04:20

And Oscar will be hoping the Blues

pick up three points in their game

0:04:250:04:32

against the Eagles this weekend.

0:04:320:04:33

There is a full round of Premier

League fixtures to look forward to,

0:04:330:04:36

and some tough tests

for teams near the bottom.

0:04:360:04:38

As well as that game,

that is also a big test for Stoke

0:04:380:04:41

against league leaders City.

0:04:410:04:42

But Potters fans, take heart

from the fact you have kept a clean

0:04:420:04:45

sheet in three of the last

seven Premier League

0:04:450:04:47

games against the Blues.

0:04:470:04:48

Elsewhere, bottom of the table

West Brom really, really need

0:04:480:04:51

to pick up some points

against Leicester, as they have

0:04:510:04:53

lost their last five league games.

0:04:530:04:55

Ouch!

0:04:550:04:56

But the standout tie this weekend

has to be today's early kick-off

0:04:560:05:00

between two of football's biggest

rivals, Man United and Liverpool.

0:05:000:05:03

This is the 170th league

meeting between the two,

0:05:030:05:05

and a win for Klopp's men would see

them leapfrog United into second,

0:05:050:05:10

something that Reds team-mates

Dominic Solanke and Joel Matip

0:05:100:05:12

will certainly be hoping for.

0:05:120:05:13

Kickabout caught up with them before

today's big game at Old Trafford

0:05:130:05:21

to ask your questions.

0:05:220:05:23

Hi, Dominic.

0:05:230:05:29

My name is Jay.

0:05:290:05:30

I'm a really keen Liverpool fan,

and I'm only nine years old.

0:05:300:05:33

I've been to Anfield a few times

and I've watched you a few times.

0:05:330:05:36

And my question is,

you know Klopp gets really

0:05:360:05:38

excited on the touchline,

running up and down the pitch.

0:05:380:05:41

Is it fun playing for him?

0:05:410:05:46

Hi, Jay.

0:05:460:05:47

Yeah, playing under

Jurgen is very exciting.

0:05:470:05:50

He's a very emotional

guy, as can see.

0:05:500:05:52

As you can see on the TV, so it's

really exciting to work with him.

0:05:520:05:57

Hi, Joel, I'm Logan.

0:05:570:06:01

The biggest Liverpool fan ever.

0:06:010:06:02

My question is, what is your biggest

football achievement?

0:06:020:06:07

Hello.

0:06:070:06:11

My biggest achievement up till now

was the win of the German cup,

0:06:110:06:14

because this was my first title

I won.

0:06:140:06:16

Hi, Dominic.

0:06:160:06:17

I'm Paul.

0:06:170:06:18

I'm such a big football fan

and I love the way you play.

0:06:180:06:21

But who's your favourite

football team and why?

0:06:210:06:23

Hi, Paul.

0:06:230:06:24

My favourite team is,

of course, Liverpool.

0:06:240:06:26

As I'm playing here now and every

time we play, we play to win,

0:06:260:06:30

and I feel a lot of support here,

so that's my favourite team.

0:06:300:06:34

It's a decent looking corner kick.

0:06:340:06:35

Van Dijk did it!

0:06:350:06:41

Van Dijk did it!

0:06:440:06:51

Liverpool are go again!

0:06:510:06:52

Virgil van Dijk on debut.

0:06:520:06:53

How exciting is it to play

for Liverpool at the moment?

0:06:530:06:55

It's really exciting

to work and play for a big

0:06:550:06:58

club like Liverpool.

0:06:580:06:59

We know the stand and the fans

support us, so it's a big honour

0:06:590:07:02

to play, for every player.

0:07:020:07:03

Hi, Dominic, what the best

stadium you've played at?

0:07:030:07:06

Hi, Logan.

0:07:060:07:07

My favourite stadium

to play at is Wembley,

0:07:070:07:09

as I made my England debut there,

which was fantastic

0:07:090:07:11

and also Anfield, coming out

and playing at Anfield,

0:07:110:07:14

the atmosphere is amazing.

0:07:140:07:16

Thanks, guys.

0:07:160:07:24

And sticking with the Reds

and today's big north-west derby,

0:07:260:07:30

that game was the focus of this

week's Top Tekkers vote.

0:07:300:07:33

We asked you to choose

between Anthony Martial

0:07:330:07:34

and Roberto Firmino.

0:07:340:07:35

And loads of you have got involved.

0:07:350:07:37

So, let's find out

who got the most votes.

0:07:370:07:58

Firmino puts Liverpool 1-0 up!

0:07:580:08:06

What a, what a, what a finish.

0:08:090:08:13

In towards Firmino instead!

0:08:130:08:15

Fabulous finish from Firmino!

0:08:150:08:22

And all you Liverpool fans will be

hoping for more skills like that

0:08:240:08:27

later today at Old Trafford.

0:08:270:08:31

Keep watching for some great goals

from previous encounters

0:08:310:08:33

at the end of the show,

but before that, let's take a look

0:08:330:08:36

at next week's Top Tekkers vote.

0:08:360:08:38

With the FA Cup back next weekend,

0:08:380:08:39

we want you to choose between these

two legends of the competition.

0:08:390:08:43

Frank Lampard.

0:08:430:08:44

Oh, my word!

0:08:440:08:45

Or Ryan Giggs.

0:08:450:08:50

As usual, cast your

vote on our website.

0:08:500:08:52

You have until 9am on Wednesday

the 14th of March, and we will

0:08:520:08:55

reveal the winner next Saturday.

0:08:550:08:59

As well as the FA Cup next weekend,

there is also Premier League action,

0:08:590:09:02

plus a full fixture schedule

in the championship,

0:09:020:09:04

where things are really hotting up

in the battle for promotion.

0:09:040:09:09

One team who are on a fantastic run

right now are Millwall.

0:09:090:09:12

They have gone ten games

unbeaten, following a win

0:09:120:09:15

against Hull earlier this week.

0:09:150:09:17

And have moved within six

points of the play-offs.

0:09:170:09:19

And Kickabout reporter

Kelly Anne caught up with one

0:09:190:09:21

of their standout players and joint

top scorer George Saville to find

0:09:210:09:24

out what happens on a match day

at The Den.

0:09:240:09:27

Do you have a place that you really,

really like, that you try to get

0:09:270:09:42

to first before anyone else does?

0:09:420:09:44

I sit over here.

0:09:440:09:45

Just this one here.

0:09:450:09:47

And that's normally where I've been

all season, to be honest,

0:09:470:09:49

because you have your shirt kind

of laid out, with your name

0:09:490:09:52

and stuff like that.

0:09:520:09:53

So everyone kind of

knows where you are.

0:09:530:09:55

Does the manager give you any kind

of motivational words?

0:09:550:09:58

We go through the team and we go

through the opposition's

0:09:580:10:00

team and a few tactics.

0:10:000:10:02

It's just more of the job on hand

and what we've got to do

0:10:020:10:05

to win the game, really.

0:10:050:10:10

What's going through your

head at this point?

0:10:100:10:12

Are you nervous, are you excited?

0:10:120:10:14

For me, I'm excited.

0:10:140:10:15

I get excited when we

get in the tunnel.

0:10:150:10:17

I'm just focused, I don't really

take much interest in who I'm

0:10:170:10:20

standing next to or who I'm playing.

0:10:200:10:21

You might see a familiar face may

be in the tunnel that

0:10:210:10:24

you know or whatever, but as soon

as you step on the pitch,

0:10:240:10:27

it's kind of game time.

0:10:270:10:29

You're on the pitch.

0:10:290:10:30

You want to score a goal.

0:10:300:10:34

Who are you looking at,

what are you analysing?

0:10:340:10:36

How are you getting

that ball into the net?

0:10:360:10:39

If it's out wide, you look to time

you run and you know it's coming in.

0:10:390:10:42

It's kind of instinct

for me, really.

0:10:420:10:44

You just kind of go with it.

0:10:440:10:46

You don't have that

much time to think.

0:10:460:10:48

You need a little bit of luck

and hopefully, it drops your way.

0:10:480:10:51

Who are the centre midfielders

that you would love

0:10:510:10:54

to have a game against?

0:10:540:10:55

This season, you look

at Kevin De Bruyne,

0:10:550:10:57

and the Man City midfield,

because they're flying.

0:10:570:10:59

I would like to play

against the likes of Paul Pogba.

0:10:590:11:07

Tell me about the

atmosphere in the game.

0:11:070:11:10

When you come onto the pitch,

when you're playing,

0:11:100:11:12

are you aware of the fans

and how loud they are?

0:11:120:11:15

We've had a few home

games this season where

0:11:150:11:17

the atmosphere has been electric.

0:11:170:11:18

All round the stadium, you can

really hear it once we get going.

0:11:180:11:22

Without these fans,

and people who come and watch,

0:11:220:11:24

you don't really get that adrenaline

rush, or it wouldn't be the same,

0:11:240:11:31

I don't think, playing football.

0:11:310:11:32

I know you trained

at Chelsea Academy.

0:11:320:11:34

Can you tell me what that was like?

0:11:340:11:38

I joined when I was

about 12 years old.

0:11:380:11:40

I was there for the best

part of ten years.

0:11:400:11:48

Loved every minute of it.

0:12:010:12:02

Was there anyone there that really

made a difference in your training

0:12:020:12:05

and maybe inspired you?

0:12:050:12:06

It was kind of the English

core you looked at.

0:12:060:12:09

The likes of Frank Lampard,

John Terry, Ashley Cole.

0:12:090:12:11

Being English themselves,

they really looked after us boys.

0:12:110:12:13

Everyone's journey is different.

0:12:130:12:14

You could play at a Premier league

side and stay at the top

0:12:140:12:17

or you could start right

at the bottom, non-league,

0:12:170:12:19

playing Sunday league.

0:12:190:12:20

I wouldn't change my path at all.

0:12:200:12:22

I've enjoyed it, I'm

enjoying it still now.

0:12:220:12:24

And hopefully, there

more good times to come,

0:12:240:12:26

obviously with Millwall as well.

0:12:260:12:27

Thanks, Kelly Anne, and good luck

to George and the rest of the team

0:12:270:12:31

for the end of the season.

0:12:310:12:33

Now, sticking with top players,

check out player of the week Martha

0:12:330:12:35

in the first of our pictures

from you lot at home.

0:12:350:12:37

She won the award for

Worcester Wildcats.

0:12:370:12:39

Martha supports Man United

and she and her brother Ethan

0:12:390:12:42

are hoping her favourite player

Lukaku scores today

0:12:420:12:43

against Liverpool.

0:12:430:12:45

Massive Man City fan Oliver

loves watching his team,

0:12:450:12:47

and saw them lift the EFL Cup

against Arsenal earlier this month.

0:12:470:12:50

His favourite player is Aguero,

and he watches Kickabout

0:12:500:12:52

every week before footy.

0:12:520:12:53

Nice one, Oliver.

0:12:530:12:55

Here is Spurs fan Archie getting

ready to play for Goring Robins,

0:12:550:12:58

where he is both striker and keeper.

0:12:580:13:00

Whoo!

0:13:000:13:01

Talk about multitalented!

0:13:010:13:04

Junior Gunner Billy plays

as a striker for his local under-8s

0:13:040:13:07

side and school team,

and his favourite players

0:13:070:13:09

are Lacazette and Ozil.

0:13:090:13:12

And here is Edward enjoying his

first Southampton match,

0:13:120:13:14

despite all the snow.

0:13:140:13:15

He met Sammy Saint before the game,

who told his dad off for having

0:13:150:13:18

a Newcastle case on his phone.

0:13:180:13:20

I love that.

0:13:200:13:21

And finally, check this out

for a great shopping trip.

0:13:210:13:23

Louie and Daisy bumped

into Sadio Mane in the supermarket.

0:13:230:13:26

Daisy supports Everton

and Louie Liverpool,

0:13:260:13:27

so Mane made a cheeky joke

to Daisy about it.

0:13:270:13:30

Next time I am out shopping,

I hope that I bump into my favourite

0:13:300:13:33

player, Captain

Fantastic Mark Noble.

0:13:330:13:34

Nice one, you two.

0:13:340:13:36

Keep your brilliant pictures coming.

0:13:360:13:40

Just head to the website

for all of the details.

0:13:400:13:42

And while you're online, don't

forget to get involved with our

0:13:420:13:45

Sport Relief Mileathon Send-in

with Blue Peter.

0:13:450:13:47

We want you to download and decorate

a trainer and tell us how many miles

0:13:470:13:50

you're going to do for Sport Relief.

0:13:500:13:52

You can walk, run, wheel, cycle,

swim, scoot, you name it,

0:13:520:13:55

so long as it is getting active

and clocking up the miles.

0:13:550:13:59

We want to hear from you.

0:13:590:13:59

Every mile will be converted

into steps and we want to hit

0:13:590:14:02

a massive 1 million

on our totaliser.

0:14:020:14:04

Now, here are some great examples

of trainers that have

0:14:040:14:06

already been sent in.

0:14:060:14:08

This is Fay's, I love

the colours on that one.

0:14:080:14:10

And here is Christian's,

a very cool trainer.

0:14:100:14:18

This is Fay's, I love

the colours on that one.

0:14:190:14:21

And here is Christian's,

a very cool trainer.

0:14:210:14:27

So, what are you waiting for?

0:14:290:14:30

We will have more on Sport Relief

same time next Saturday,

0:14:300:14:33

but until then, I'll leave

you with some goals to build up

0:14:330:14:36

to today's lunchtime kick-off.

0:14:360:14:37

See you.

0:14:370:14:38

When these two clubs have come

together, it has always been

0:14:380:14:40

a little bit special.

0:14:400:14:42

Here we go again,

the Northern powerhouses

0:14:420:14:44

of English football meet.

0:14:440:14:52

0:14:550:14:57

He's got a foot in.

Ahead of the big lunchtime kick off at Old Trafford, we ask Liverpool stars Dominic Solanke and Joel Matip your questions; and find out who won the Top Tekkers vote between the two clubs! Plus Millwall midfielder George Saville tells us about life in the Championship.
