      Matchday 1
      Liverpool v West Ham United at Anfield





      So what are we expecting forbSunday, starters and bench.

      I will go with:
      Allison
      Clyne, Gomez, Virgil, Robbo
      Gini, Keita, Sturridge
      Mane, Bobby, Salah
      Subs: (kelleher), klavan, Milner, Moreno, Fab,  Lallana, Shaquiri.
      (Most likely swap is Lallana or Shaq for sturridge at attacking mid. )

      Let's hear it.

      I don't think West Ham will park the bus, so I think we should have the more cautious midfield setup. And will Milner be risked? If not, maybe we will see Wijnaldum, Fabinho and Keita?

      Where those stitches are on Milner's forehead may make it difficult for him to play just yet. If he is fit of course he's in the squad at least.

      I think we need to work on our high line defending, otherwise I can see players such as, Hernández, Arnautović  or Anderson having joy :(

      I was thinking about this the other day, having Keita as the 6 or in a double pivot with Wijnaldum and Shaqiri as the 10. We would absolutely be filthy in attack!!!!

      Yeah. Posted as a 4-3-3, but easily moves to some form of 4-2-4 with Shaqiri overlapping with Salah.

      I would love to see it happen someday, just not vs West Ham. I actually watched a couple of West Ham pre season games (live streamed on YT), and they are really deadly on the counter. I can see them finishing top half of the table too.

      Oh yeah. I think 4-2-4 first game in is a bit open, but at the same time I'd like them to go for the jugular.

      I like the look of that. But I would have Sturridge instead of Firmino.

      haha, well of course..

      But actually, Firmino is still needing minutes and Sturridge has had a great pre-season.

      I'd look to have Firmino coming on from the bench so he will be quick and fresh against a tiring West Ham defence.

      Karius
      Jones
      TAA
      Shakiri
      Firmino
      Milner

      Think that's the team he will go for, Firms slightly off pace pre season due to lack of minutes, and based on studge pulling his finger out.

      Strongest bench we have had in years

      Got a feeling that team might be the one however I think we might see Shaqiri in there in place of Wijnaldum.

      Either way is good with me, think Gini is looking good a bit further up. Feels like Keita and Fabinho have taken the shackles off him a bit.

      Shaqiri and Sturridge deserve a start in my opinion and so does Wijnaldum.

      Be interesting to see what Klopp does.

      Even if they don't start it will be good to know they will be on the bench.I think we will get a comfortable win against the Hammers to start the season.

      Made up Studge seems to have acquired a new mindset or the mindset he first displayed when he joined us.

      Looking forward to this as going up with my son for the weekend  ;D

      Think West Ham are not to be underestimated here as they've spent pretty big this summer, so could be a tricky match.  Be good to see some of the new guys in the flesh, and hope Shaqiri gets a decent run out, as he's looked very good in pre-season; good feet, moves the ball quickly, and has end-product.  He could go on to be a superb signing if he kicks on.

      Anyway, I'm going for a 3-1 win.  Mane, Sturridge & Shaqiri to net.  Roll on Saturday morning.

      Maybe a bit harsh on Shaq but I don’t see Klopp dropping Salah or Mane.
