Morning all. Ed001, we've seen Klopp tinker with 3 at the back last 2 games, or at least ot seemed that way to me, so you think this could be his prefered option from now on or was it just to get the extra CB in there to cope with Stokes and WBA direct play? I quite like that set up but feels like we have not got the right personel to play it and we are better suited to 433.

{Ed001's Note - horses for courses mate, against the bigger, more direct teams who lack pace, I expect to see the back three. I would prefer we didn't use it though, it just does not suit our players.}

Agree0 Disagree0

So for Palace as an example, would we assume back to 433. They will look to use Townsend and Zaha on the counter no doubt.

{Ed001's Note - that is what I believe to be the case.}

Honestly I said it earlier in the week but palace leave their front three forward and I don't expect that to change and they will look to play down the channels and win it off us high if we play out from the back. That being said bar their front three after that initial press they are the not the most mobile in the middle and around the back.
So if our passing out from the back is precise given any sort of movement from our front 3 they should get space to do damage.
The main interest will be how much clyne and milner still push forward and whether Lucas will have the legs to cover the channels if they do.

Just read that Lucas, Matip and Klavan all doubtful for the weekend. Time for Gomez?

20 Apr 2017 12:08:28
Matip again?

20 Apr 2017 13:51:52
That would be bad news I don't mind the idea of throwing Gomez in at the deep end first time around he looked assured and calm in everything he did but who would back up be god forbid one of lovren or himself took a knock early on, with Lucas out as well will leave us quite short in midfield. Assuming can drop to deeper and grujic perhaps in then? Or coutinho back and Trent even out wide.
Could be a very interesting lineup at least it will be difficult for palace to prepare for anything specific.

Fankly, I'm starting to get worried about the fitness of our players. Either they are fragile or the training regime needs to be recalibrated or something cos it seems Matip for example, can't complete a full game w/ o some sort of injury. Hopefully, they can be passed fit for Sun cos I have little to no confidence in a Gomez-Lovren partnership cos one is a bit rash and the other is untested.

Matip has suffered a lot with injuries this season. Can anyone shed any light as to whether this was the case while he was in Germany aswell or is it just since he joined us?
