Why was Henderson taken off?

{Ed0666's Note - injury

Agree0 Disagree0

20 Sep 2020 20:59:00
Oh thanks Ed.

{Ed0666's Note - no worries mate hope you enjoyed the game.

20 Sep 2020 22:11:26
I think it was just precautionary (tight thigh they said on commentary) but also the perfect scenario to introduce Thiago’s skill set to the game.

20 Sep 2020 21:25:53
I was worried before the game I must admit but 10-15 minutes into the game I started to relax a bit. Now the sending off did of course help us no question there. I was really interested in watching Timo play and plenty of pace but would he suit our style of play? I definitely think we need more cover at CB even tho Fab was just fab.3pts in the bag Ed0666 and extremely happy mate👍😁.

{Ed0666's Note - Yeh I said earlier I’m not sure Werner would have suited us and I stand by that. He’s phenomenal in a counter attacking side. Buying a CB is imperative mate as fab can’t be expected to pull out that type of center back display as an auxillary consistently if god forbid he had to. It was also telling that even tho Matip & Gomez didn’t play Billy the kid wasn’t picked so clearly Klopp doesn’t feel he’s ready to step up.

21 Sep 2020 07:57:14
I believe Billy was injured according to an injury update on the LFC website so Klopp may still consider him adequate cover.

{Ed001's Note - he was.}

21 Sep 2020 08:00:13
Was gomez injured? Seemed odd to not even have him in the bench if so.

{Ed001's Note - yes.}

21 Sep 2020 08:14:09
I thought fabinho was excellent at cb to the point that I’d like to see him there every week. He reads the game well makes great interceptions great tackles and good in the air. Add the fact that he can play a bit as well and I think you’ve got a perfect partner for VVD there. Held his own against a very good Werner on more than one occasion. Thiago with the exception of the challenge for the penalty looked exceptional, I’ll be honest I didn’t see the need for him as we have plenty of midfielders but in 45 minutes he proved with almost every touch of the ball that he’s a different class. Playing with a swagger of someone who has won everything and wants to win more. Liverpool at times looked in a training match just keeping possession and probing for Weakness for long stages. Chelsea miss pulisic and ziyech and will be a different prospect when they’re fit however Liverpool went to a team that want to be contenders and made them look average for 90 minutes. A very good squad developing now with cover across the pitch.

21 Sep 2020 04:15:21
So we’re all talking about a CB, but Eds, do we know of any actual solid interest in any? I’m hoping you won’t say Carlos.

{Ed002's Note - I am not aware of anything different to what has been discussed I am afraid.}

21 Sep 2020 10:36:44
Fab has a mean streak in him, as a DM this is okay, but not as a CB. The risk would be too much.

{Ed025's Note - hes your second best centre back after VVD for me xpertoyin, reads the game very well and kept werner quiet yesterday which is not easy mate..

21 Sep 2020 10:49:20
I agree Ed025. Gomez is a very good young centre back but Fabinho is just better in every defensive department except recovery pace. He even holds the offside trap better.

{Ed025's Note - he has something better than speed HMB, he has speed of thought, reads the game very well which although hes young gomez fails on imo, just my opinion though mate..

21 Sep 2020 11:03:48
Was just going to say the same thing Ed. I thought he was exceptional and I think what I liked most was how well he read the game and his calmness with bring the ball out of dangerous situations. With regards to Thiago, I was also one that didn't see the need to go for him but wow, what a player. He strikes the ball so well and effortlessly finds a red shirt. I'm very excited to see more of him in midfield.

21 Sep 2020 13:25:55
As they say Ed025, the first 5 yards are in your head.

{Ed025's Note - dead right mate..

21 Sep 2020 13:39:02
I hope we don't sign a Cb think Gomez and VVD are a great pair big games like yesterday Fab can cover with the lower end clubs the young lads can cover if Matip and Gomez are both out. If I could sign one more player I would rather we get better cover for Alisson as Adrian proved last year in the fa cup and champions league he is not good enough.

21 Sep 2020 07:47:56
Think klopp said billy had a knock too.

{Ed0666's Note - thanks mate

21 Sep 2020 16:31:38
Can I ask who is Billy the kid? Haha.

21 Sep 2020 21:42:05
Gomez is far better than Fabinho at centre back.

I'm ok with Fabinho providing cover but no way would I agree with Fabinho actually being better than Gomez as a center back.

Excellent yesterday but if he playing there regularly I think he'd be caught out (lack of pace and strong but a bit clumsy so I think he would give away a fair few penalties) .

21 Sep 2020 23:14:18
Fabinho played superbly vs chelski. id be happy to see him there, maybe Tiago and Hendo infront of him. Would allow Keita to play slightly further forward. Or maybe play Bobby in a "10" role, move Mane inside, play Jota left channel and keep Salah down the right channel. Either way, and more, we've signed some great players in great deals, giving us a chance of retaining the title. Come on REDMEN. YNWA.
