      With pre season done and 6 days to the start of the league what 11 would you go with based on pre season and assuming we arent signing anyone before kick off.

      For me..

      Mignolet

      TAA Matip Gomez Moreno

             Gini Can Hendo

      Salah       Firmino    Mane

      Subs: Karius. Lovern. Robertson. Gruij Milner. Solanke. Kent.

      Id like to see Gomez get a run at centre back. Moreno has improved no end but think we need yo give him a chance in the league to see if its real improvement

      No Coutinho? Are you assuming he's off to Bar├ža or something?

      I'd go with Mignolet; TAA, Matip, Lovren, Robertson; Henderson, Wijnaldum, Coutinho; Salah, Mane, Firmino.

       If Coutinho goes the bulk of our creative spark goes with him..what then.

      Salah  Coutinho  Mane
            Sturridge/Solanke

      Hard to believe I've put Mignolet and Moreno in there, but it's on form, and who we have. Thought Robertson looked hesitant yest, Migs still shades Karius. Think Gini looks sharper than Emre right now.
      Really wanted us to sign a recognised quality striker, cause we look a diff side with one, so if Studge fit would start him though would be OK with Solanke who has been impressive. So for me Firmino would loose out.

      REALLY hope to see one or two more new names on the starting XI before transfer window ends.

      I'd be just as happy to see Robertson at left back but have a feeling it will be Milner despite J├╝rgen's comments yesterday. Am very surprised to see Alberton 'penalty waiting to happen' Moreno in so many people's teams. A couple of solid pre-season games where he hasn't had much to do defensively hasn't blunted my memories of his total lack of defensive instincts and terrible decision making in the penalty area. I think Klopp will likely favour Can over Gini but I would prefer the Dutchman to play.

      If Robertson shapes up I wouldn't be surprised to see Moreno depart in the Jan 2018 window. Out of his depth here I think.

      What would I go with and no signings:

                        Karius
      TAA       Matip     Lovren    Moreno
                       Henderson
                  Coutinho Grujic
           Salah     Firmino    Mane


      Must admit I really struggled with the Grujic choice but against Watford I think he'd give us the aerial presence none of our other front 4 have, also set-pieces we'll need that height. I think we can live without 2 more defensive minded midfielders and Can/Henderson just don't mix very well, it's one or the other and on current form Henderson just shades it.

      Wijnaldum is the one that loses out and I haven't been at all impressed with him in pre-season. For me the season could well hinge on the boss getting in a CM or two before the window shuts (which I'm not confident he will) because in my opinion this is quickly becoming our weakest area. It wont be long, not just through his own progress, but through injuries and regression of others that Woodburn becomes a real contender to start.

      The Starters........

                                                          Karius

                                Trent A A         Matip     Lovren    Robertson
           
                                          Wijnaldom         Henderson

                                                       Coutinho

                                     Salah                                Mane
                                                       Firmino

             
      Bench:    Mignolet, Klavan, Milner, Can, Solanke, Kent, Grujic


       I think J├╝rgen will start the season with Karius and see how he fares, commands his area better and his distribution is much better,  Matip & Lovren , until VVD comes in this is our best cb pairing imo, TAA takes the RB slot and perhaps has made it his own, at LB I've gone for Robertson over Moreno, better defender, more astute, better end product,

       for me we can't have both Hendo & Can in the same X1, since Hendo is skip he gets my nod, Gini alongside him will link up with our attackers, and can break up play, Coutinho if fit has to play, he's simply our best player and creator supreme,

      Mane, Salah & Bobby the defence destroyers, with their cunning running and turn of speed will give defenders nightmares, I think last season we lacked pace at times, especially against the bus parkers, Klopp has hopefully rectified that we problem for this campaign.


      The Finishers......

                               Our bench last season was woefully short in quality, it's still not as good as it should be imo, however, it is atm better, whoever is plucked from the bench will obviously depend on the score, fitness, tactics etc during the 90+ mins, needless to say those players who come on should do so with minimum disruption, everyone to a man whether they are starters or finishers need to be on their metal and ready to run/work their gonads off.

      Twatford away, although difficult should see us win our first 3 pts, i'm confidant for the win and can see us being to good for them,

      1-3,  Salah, Gini, and Solanke with the goody goody gumdrops.

      Gini     Coutinho

      Salah   Firmino   Mane   

      This is the team I assume will start with the possible change of Karius/Migs, not 100% sure which way J├╝rgen is leaning on this one at moment.

      It's a quality side that should get the job done.
