      Can see us winning this one.  Wham cannot just sit and wait, they will have to come at us, which should leave plenty of space for Salah to miss half a dozen before he slots one home.

      CMON you REDMEN



      If Bilic thinks the way to beat us is park the bus and counter, that’s exactly what he’ll do.
      No way will he come out and play open footy, as everyone is aware of what generally turns us over.

      No point in taking a cautious approach, we don't defend well enough to do a number on them. Pick an out and out attacking team, take the game to them and hope we can fend off their counter attacks.

      We have to keep up the momentum and get 3 points.
      One thing I liked about the mid week game was the patience shown...at the time I didn’t but afterwards I thought that was an encouraging sign.
      Solidity is great but now for an injection of pace again into our attack.
      Going for a 2-1 win but not massively optimistic.

      They'll play a back 5 - hope we start taking pop shots from the edge of the box; Hart will fluff a few. Can see the Mexican scoring, always does against us. Tempo of the game will be based on how early we score. We should try to wrap this up by half time.

      Another match for us to boost our confidence. Easy on paper; we need the win simply because we haven't been ripping up trees [Gunners aside] against too many above us (and wasn't doing just that our claim to fame last season?).

      A nice win keeps us in touch while others will drop points.

      Close that gap redmen.

      Lovren fit to play. Bringing him in to replace Klavan, good or bad? Klavan part of two back to back clean sheets and not done anything wrong.

      Mane on the bench! Be good to being him on in second half.

      If they do park the bus, it'd be interesting to see our approach. We've won our last two comfortably against bus parkers by playing the rope a dope (tire the opposition, hit in the 2nd half). While I would much rather us be heavy metal from the get go, I wont be mad if Klopp takes that take against a defensive set up. After all, most people's criticism was about Klopp's unwillingness to change tactics and play to the opposition.
      That being said, I'm be hoping for them to come at us and for us to shove goals down their throats :-)

      Think we will win this and probably seal the fate of Bilic, I'd stick with Klavan alongside Matip with Gomez and Moreno as WB's, Hendo, Milner & Can as the mids with Salah , the Ox and Firmino up top, might struggle with creativity without Coutinho but there is enough experience with Milner & Can and Henderson to supply through balls for our attack,

      Won't be easy by any stretch , Hammers will rely on set pieces with the big fella their main target, still think tho we will blow out all their bubbles and take home the 3 pts.....

      ......                  Migs
           Gomez  Matip Klavan Moreno
                           Henderson
               Milner                     Emre
          Salah       Firmino     Chamberlain


      Bench; Karius, Lovren Robertson, Mane, Sturridge, Solanke, Trent
