Joel Matip is having an outstanding start to this season. Is it now time for klopp to manage his game time and play Konate against Milan.

Agree4 Disagree0

I would think that Gomez would be ahead in the line, to get a start, no?

13 Sep 2021 19:48:16
Gomez deserves some respect too, best English CB!
Looking forward to seeing them both.

{Ed025's Note - "best english CB" hmmmmm..

13 Sep 2021 19:58:59
Not sure gomez can be considered the best English cb anymore. Needs to hit back that form. Either way he would never get the praise he deserves in an England shirt. The back 4 is solid and can't be changed fir Milan game imo.

A winning start In the CL is key. The earlier we qualify from the group the sooner we can rest players from playing 2 games a week. Won’t be surprised to see Vvd and Matip start wed and then one of Konate or Gomez to come in against Palace and then both to play the league cup.

13 Sep 2021 20:07:07
If its anyone it will be Konate. There is no way Klopp chased after him and the club paid circa £37 million for him to be behind Gomez.

13 Sep 2021 20:33:40
Agree Matip should take caution with Matip u could say the same about vvd after his bad injury!
Just go get the 3 points get through as fast as possible and then rest as many as possible for dead rubber games!
(All wishful thinking but here’s hoping)

13 Sep 2021 20:48:58
But is that how Klopp functions, Irish Rover? According to the dollar signs? Do you see Keita, our most expensive midfield purchase, starting every week? Did you see Ben Davies (paid 60,000 per week) starting ahead of Phillips and Rhys Williams (who are paid much less)?

I think Gomez has shown enough and done enough to warrant being ahead of Konate. Sure, Konate has tremendous potential and may end up being as good as VVD (fingers crossed), but we're not there, just yet.

13 Sep 2021 21:55:38
Keita had plenty of chances when he first signed but Klopp did start Becker, VVD, Fabinho, Mane, Gini, Salah etc when they signed. We shall see.

13 Sep 2021 21:57:11
Gomez has proved himself, he just needs to prove his fitness again.
Konate needs to prove himself.
Both will get chances soon enough, Matip won’t last forever, sadly, he’s having a great start to the season.

13 Sep 2021 22:39:12
You cannot be the best English CB if you cannot get a game at club level and this is coming from a HUGE Gomez fan.

13 Sep 2021 22:04:14
Konate will play, but just like Fabinho and Robbo, Klopp doesn't feel obliged to rush players into the team if he doesn't need to.

Right now Matip and VVD are setting the standard very high as well as giving Gomez and Konate essentially an extended preseason, when either of those two get a chance I can imagine they'll perform very highly.

13 Sep 2021 23:07:55
Konate will definitely come in a game played at a slower pace may help him bed in a bit better than a helter skelter game against a Leeds United side that never stop running.

14 Sep 2021 00:15:36
We now have the best CB strength and depth in the world. I have never seen Konate play but the other 3 are good enough for nearly any team in the world.

14 Sep 2021 10:22:28
The only fear is that gomez seemed to struggle after the sterling row his head wasn't there for the full 90 minutes

Hopefully he's gets back to his best as he is a player who already showed he can play at the top

Wonder will we see his and konate play tomorrow or wait for Norwich in the league Cup the week after.
