Team: Mignolet, Manquillo, Skrtel, Toure, Johnson, Lucas, Gerrard, Allen, Henderson, Sterling, Lambert

Be interesting to see how Gerrard and Lucas are deployed. I'm assuming it'll be a diamond with Gerrard at the tip and Lucas at the base, but I'm worried that it'll be both of them as DMs which didn't exactly work against West Ham.

For all our nerves about Sane and City exposing Alexander-Arnold, I note that City have Laporte, a centre back, at left full against Salah.

That flank could be an avenue for us too.

TAA was excellent against one of the best wingers in world football.

{Ed0333's Note - yes he was


2.) 04 Apr 2018 22:36:34
TAA’s going to get home to find an Afro sticking out of his pocket. Great performance tonight by everyone but especially happy for Trent after the stick he’s had recently.


3.) 04 Apr 2018 23:24:46
Sane tho a very talented player, ran up against a player just as talented as he is and to crown it all, he got shut down by a player who is not even a defender or a FB.

Karius in goal.

Is Migs' reign as no. 1 finally over, or is Klopp just toying with his keepers again?

Klopp: "It was a similar situation [to the penalty against Liverpool for Everton last month], the first one was no penalty in my opinion and this one wasn't also. It's the same. There is contact and the referee used his whistle. Exactly the same situation.

Meanwhile Allardyce says it wasn't a pen cos it was given against him this time and complains about the referee being pro-Liverpool despite the fact that Holgate wasn't booked and Rooney didn't get a second yellow for fouling Can.

Fat Sam is just Fat Sam no words for him.


2.) 05 Jan 2018 22:57:13
Credit to Klopp for saying what he said. I didn’t think Everton’s penalty against us was a penalty and I don’t think ours tonight was a penalty. Both very soft penalties. Either way though I’m happy we’ve got the win and are into the next round, hopefully we can go far in this comp. would love to win it as we’re crying out for some silverware. YNWA.


3.) 05 Jan 2018 23:21:22
I don’t like seeing them given but there is contact and so a penalty, but same as hazards against aresneal and the Everton own against us. If it wa sup to me, no penalty but as per the law? Yes.

{Ed025's Note - i cant argue with that mate, it does seem to be becoming a non-contact sport though JBLP which is ruining the game imo..


4.) 05 Jan 2018 23:44:13
Klopp was right and honest. He is a truly honorable man who told the truth, IMO. Both were NEVER penalties. However, the one who ended up with lots of eggs on his face is Big Scam. Remember, Big Scam after the last derby, "A soft penalty does not exist. It is either a penalty or not". Well, how the tables have turned. I knew he would regret that statement and tho I did not know it would happen in this game, I'm just happy it did and the fact that Scam is moaning is just priceless.


5.) 05 Jan 2018 23:52:39
There are words Alonso but they would rightly be filtered out on the site 😁.


6.) 06 Jan 2018 12:09:01
After watching Arsenal v Chelsea and the Chelsea pen every pundit said it was a pen Alan Brazil said on talk sport in the rules minimal contact in the area warrants a pen so Evertons pen in first game and LFC tonight were minimal contact a pen if it is good enough for hazard it is good enough for us two teams.

Not a great performance, but I'll take a dirty win during the Christmas / New Year period no problem.

Made up for Klavan to score the winner. He's filled in for us very well over the last couple of months and deserved that, imo.

And now we get to watch either Man U or Everton, or maybe even both, drop points. What a nice start to the New Year.

And let's not forget Mane's cracker of a goal either. Hopefully that'll give him some confidence back and remind him that he's still one of the best players in the league on his day.


2.) 01 Jan 2018 17:12:00
I'd like to see Klavan next to VVD to be honest. Klavans weakness is his speed. VVD is an ideal partner for that.


3.) 01 Jan 2018 17:22:29
Im with you there Jayden, Klaven before Matip and Lovren for me.


4.) 01 Jan 2018 17:25:45
Agree Jayden klavan is our most consistent and solid defender. I would like to see him as well partner with big Virgil. I would even argue Lovren should bump matip down he pecki g order to the bottom. And go figure, Lovren and klavan create the winning goal.


5.) 01 Jan 2018 17:27:25
Lovren all day. Much more comfortable on the right side CB.


6.) 01 Jan 2018 17:23:34
Exactly the kind of win that the top teams would get And you have to pick up for top 3 finish.


7.) 01 Jan 2018 18:25:31
I’ve been critical of those two before but it is undeniable that they’ve been reasonably consistent on this run, going to Burnley and winning is no mean feat. Imagine if they played in front of a decent keeper eh?


8.) 01 Jan 2018 23:26:22
I guess Klopp was right all along. Our CB's are more than coachable and Klopp has done a bang up job of improving them.

Ray Houghton was doing commentary for RTE, summed it up nicely at 5-0:

Isn't this rumour based on a throwaway comment by a journo or ex-footballer who said Firmino would be an ideal fit at Bayern if they sell Lewandowski to Madrdid?

Asking whether de Bruyne and Salah were the finished article at Chelsea is completely pointless since I said I don't expect Can to be the finished article. I just expect him to have improved quite a bit since he was 20/ 21. Which he hasn't in my opinion.

And trying to say that Can at this point in his career is comparable to Matic (first Chelsea career), Salah and de Bruyne when they left Chelsea is wide of the mark. They aren't in the same boat at all. Chelsea didn't give them a whole lot of chances. 30 odd appearances between the three, and they were younger than Can is now - all leaving Chelsea on loan, eventually to be permanent, at 21 or 22 years of age. When they did play regularly after leaving, they showed how good they were pretty quickly.

Can on the other hand has been a first team regular here for four years, three of them in central midfield. So he's had his chances at Liverpool. Lots of them. If he was going to be anywhere near their level, he'd have shown a decent chunk of quality by now, but he hasn't. We get flashes. A quality goal or through ball here and there, but very few consistent performances over 90 minutes and certainly no consistent run of form. If he was good enough, we'd have seen more of it by now.

By comparison, after three seasons of regular first team football in Germany, de Bruyne had established himself as one of the brightest prospects in Europe and commanded a £55m fee - and this was just before the TV deal that let's clubs play £40m and £50m for non-players like Sigurdsson and Walker. And he was 24. The same age Can is now. Salah is only a year older than Can, with significantly less Premier League experience, and yet he's miles ahead of him.

Want an easier yardstick? Lucas. Joined Liverpool at 19/ 20 like Can, got stick like Can, but at 24 he was Liverpool's player of the season and looking like one of the best center mids in the League until he did his cruciate. Can's nowhere near the level Lucas was at his age. And as for Kante, since you mentioned him, he just slipped under the radar. The quality was probably always there as shown by how he was instantly the best midfielder in the PL when he joined Leicester (at 24 years old too, btw) . You can hardly say that Can is slipping under the radar when we're watching him every week.

Can isn't good enough, big emre.

He's 24, he's played 150+ times for us and he's still hugely inconsistent, patchy positionally and is routinely bypassed by opposition midfielders. Now, I don't expect players to be the finished article at 24, but if they've been in the first team since they were 20 I expect them to show a significant improvement from then. I don't think Can has. He should be well used to playing for one of the biggest clubs in the toughest league and able to deal with it by now.

He's not a young, rough diamond anymore, he's just an inconsistent player. Given that Gini disappears regularly too, and Milner and Ox aren't really central midfielders (although they are able to make it work sometimes just through sheer work rate) I don't think it's at all surprising that we're looking for another central midfielder apart from Keita. If it was up to me, I'd replace every center mid at the club apart from Henderson.

Did Arsenal 'lose out' to us on Salah, then?

Didn't this photo surface in the summer too?

Then again the presumably fake van Dijk photos (he had van Dijk on his shirt rather than Virgil) surfaced both in the summer and then again a couple of days before his signing was announced in December, so maybe it's a good sign.

I don't think Alisson could've stopped us from scoring 5 goals, but if Karius had flown out to the edge of his area and a shot was lifted over him and then dropped a corner later in the game, we'd probably say something about him. Any keeper is going to have a 'could've done better' moment once in a while.

My view on 'keepers is:

There's no point in buying someone like Butland, who might be a bit more consistent with his shot stopping than Karius, but not better than him overall, and actually weaker in some areas. I'd rather continue with Karius, who, remember, has yet to have a full season playing with the same defence consistently. If we replace Karius, it has to be on someone significantly better.

But buying a top quality 'keeper is going to be monstrously expensive. Alisson will probably set us back at least £50m, more if you believe the papers. Is he £50m+ worth of an improvement over Karius? I don't know. With the way football transfer fees are going currently, what even constitutes value for money at £50m?

If it was me I'd give either Woodburn or Alexander-Arnold a stab at it.

However, I suspect Klopp will bring in a third center back and play 343.

Being realistic, unless one out of Can, Ox or Lallana pull a Lazarus, either Woodburn or Alexander-Arnold will get game time in midfield at between now and the end of season.

I just hope Klopp doesn't try to solve the problem by playing 343 because that generally hasn't worked for us this season.

Agreed.

Barca went there, tried to have a keep-ball training session and got mugged. We're not going to do that. They are not going to keep a clean sheet against us.

Oh look a bad result.

That means it's time to bash Henderson.
