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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's hard as a fan to scout other team's center backs. You'd have to watch them regularly, take into account what defenders around them are doing, if they're doing the organising or leaving it up to someone else, what system their team plays, if they're contributing to the opposition getting an easy build up against them, how other teams approach playing them etc. Stats, highlights or even watching two or three full matches just doesn't tell you enough.

I like the look of Lascelles, for example, but I don't know if he'd cope with having to play a high line and cover extra ground, and stay alert without an opposition forward in his face for long periods if he were here. That's the change in system that Lovren struggled with since joining from Southampton.

I really do not know why Milner has been picked. He tries hard, has a good bit of energy and running power, even at 32, but he doesn't employ it intelligently.

The only real strong point I can think of in his game is his crossing from open play. Playing him at central midfield is hardly the place to use that though.

I'd imagine Robertson's left back today JC, considering he's in the team too.

Confirmed. Firmino rested. Along with Coutinho.

Milner in the team again though. I can't wait to watch him run around aimlessly, leave massive gaps in the midfield and then everyone blame Henderson for it.

Our midfield should be Henderson and Can with Wijnaldum as the rotation option. Just do it, Jurgen.

I understand what you're saying MK, but I'm going to have to disagree. Quite a lot.

Someone hitting the disagree button on the OP implies they don't wish McCarthy to recover from the injury - ie. they want his career to end. That's a bit more than 'not feeling sorry for him' isn't it? (And if that's not what they mean, then maybe they should read the post properly before spamming thumbs down. )

It takes a particularly nasty footballer, of which very few exist, to be remotely deserving of that. And McCarthy isn't one just because he put in a hard tackle or two the last time we played Everton. Gerrard's made worse tackles than McCarthy in derbies.

The key is he has to stick with it now. The last thing we need is Klopp getting cold feet and re-instating Migs after a few weeks because the media and fans keep obsessing over Karius' hand position or an occasional mis-hit clearance.

We know Migs will never stop making mistakes because he's been at it for 4 years, so even if Karius has some shaky moments, the best thing we can do is allow him to play through them to see can he overcome them with a run in the team. Look at what a run in the team has done for Robertson. At least then we'll know for certain if he's capable of stepping up or not and whether we need a new goalie. No point in going into the summer knowing that Migs isn't good enough but still with a niggling doubt about whether Karius could step up if given the chance.

You may notice I didn't mention Danny Ward. I'd like to see more of the guy, but he's clearly not entering the equation for Klopp, so what's the point? It'd make as much sense to talk about Markovic as a replacement for Coutinho.

We definitely need reinforcements in central midfield. We are just so flimsy here and I think it's our biggest problem area. I get Klopp doesn't play with a pure defensive midfielder afraid to stray more than 10 yards from the back 4, and that's fine, but a team still needs its midfielders to be able to defend, in the sense that they can spot gaps opening up, track runners and make tackles. None of ours really can do that. Henderson and Can sometimes make a decent enough fist of it, but not consistently. Plus we have no one who's really authoritative with the ball and can be depended on to control a game. Again Henderson, Can and Gini do it in fits and starts but not consistently. Plus Can is 50/ 50 to leave, I don't see what future Milner has here beyond that of a bit part player, and I'd seriously consider selling Gini if he doesn't start putting in good performances as a better rate than 1 in every 5 games. Keita's arriving and will help, but we still need at least one new recruit as well as him. Possibly two.

We need a center back to replace the frustratingly lazy Matip with someone who has the mentality to put their talent to use. Watch the second Man City goal again. He gets beaten at the edge of the area at the start of the move and then just stands there watching the play until they score. Not good enough.

Might want an attacking midfielder or winger. If we're without the services of Salah or Mane due to injury or rotation, we're looking at Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lallana as backup. They're both good players and that'd be fine, except they may also be needed in central midfield and I'd be more comfortable with another quality option to pick from. Finding a player who's both good enough, and will be able to tolerate some rotation mightn't be the easiest thing though. Woodburn could potentially ease this need, but it's big ask on such a young man.

Karius will either demonstrate himself capable of being #1 or not in the next few months. If it's the latter case, we'll need a new goalkeeper.

I don't think the need for a striker is all that pressing. I'm unconcerned about replacing Sturridge since we've barely used him this season, so what are we replacing? We need cover for Firmino. Solanke has the work-rate and looks to drop off to link up the play and with the right training and a bit of luck could be more than good enough for that role (and to become first choice when Barcelona buy Firmino off us in 2020). I'm as happy to give him a chance as to go out and buy another player to cover for Firmino. We also have Ings, and potentially Origi coming back if we want the option of a more 'traditional' striker.

Well Henderson's injured, Lallana has been injured, Milner's not really got the head for central midfield, Klopp doesn't appear to rate Grujic, Coutinho is no longer an employee of Liverpool FC, and Wijnaldum hides about 50% of the time.

So by and large, Klopp hasn't had many alternatives other than to use Can.

Can's problem is he hasn't improved a whole lot since joining. He's still an inconsistent rough diamond who you think will become a proper player with a bit more experience and game intelligence. But we've been thinking that for three and a half years and over 150 appearances. He struggles to put in good performances on a consistent basis, he still doesn't seem quite suited to being the "pivot" or "no.6" or whatever you want to call it, and even when picked alongside Henderson and given more freedom to play his attacking qualities manifest infrequently.

I get he's only 24, but he still seems to be largely the same player that he was when he was 20. Makes me think he's liable to still be the same player at 28.
