      Hope his injury isn't too serious and that he comes back sooner than in 4 weeks.

      Think he will be back for West Ham game personally. Ruled out for 2-4 weeks at the moment. The 11 day break between games after Palace is a big bonus to have with players recovering.

      Not sure how (un)reliable Maddock is. I don't use twitter, but saw this on Facebook. The injury doesn't seem to be too bad and Gomez will be back soon.

      We'll be fine. We have plenty of time inbetween games to recover and to get our gameplans spot on, whoever is playing RB during these games. Looks like Klopp also really values Milner's presence on the pitch, which makes it even easier to understand why he let go of Clyne. He'd rather play Milner at RB than not play him at all if it means picking him ahead of Clyne.

      actually.....

      Klopp on injuries: "Gini and Trent we will decide day by day. The exceptional part is that they both played 90mins (at Brighton). Trent, what a boy! It was just what happened before the game, playing didn't make it worse. It will be close for tomorrow."

      So all that panic about Trent being out for a month, we should have kept Clyne, it was a mistake loaning out Clyne etc looks to have been far too premature.

      just a bit yeah ;-) I still think it was a mistake to loan out Clyne but hopefully now with players returning it won't be a factor and won't adversely affect us.

      It looks like Klopp made the right decision, after all.

      Would be great news if TAA is not as injured as originally thought.

      This is the Klopp/TAA conversation:

      Don’t get why people are saying about Clyne, he only played once last time Trent was out injured so I doubt he’d have played this time. Fabinho is more than capable of doing a job at RB and I think his performances at CB in the last couple of games will lead to him being used there. If not then there is Milner who we already know can do a job there, and we also have Camacho. On top of that, we have an 11 day break after the Palace game so I think there is every chance Gomez could be back for the following game.

      Don’t see a lack of cover as an issue to be honest. Clyne was virtually irrelevant last time Trent was injured so I don’t see why it would have been any different this time.

      Right, but....

      A lot of things are different from the last time Trent was out. For instance, Gomez is still out injured, and I think given his progression at CB it's somewhat of a shame each time we have to play him at RB instead of next to VVD. Likewise w/Fabinho: for me he's earned his spot in midfield and we are visibly poorer there in his absence, and even though I haven't seen him play at RB I have to think his influence on the game would wane should he be deployed there.
      And finally, while Jimmy offers great utility and is a great option to have for covering several positions, I'm not sure he'll have the legs to keep up with the likes of Zaha.

      Some are clearly going overboard with their criticism of the move, but I do feel that letting Clyne go (especially at the start of the window, as opposed to later on) makes our squad less strong than it was.

      Answering the call of Klopp for a new chant for TAA. To the tune of first verse and chorus of Blur’s “There’s no other way” :
       
      He’s making a run out of anything;
      Turning it on when he can hear us sing;
      He’s making a run out of anything;
      And they can’t get near him at all;
      Trent Alexander A, Trent Alexander A;
      All that they can do is watch you play;
      Trent Alexander A, Trent Alexander A;
      All that they can do is watch you play.

      My favourite ever Blur song, I’d join in I’m just not sure it would catch on, arrangement might be s not tricky for the terraces but having said the Rafa La Bamba got sung plenty and that was a mouthful so it could work!

      Like most of the team last night he was poor but what really stood out was how poor his passing was, 59% passing accuracy!

      Another thing I have noticed is he doesn’t like being pressed and tends to just hoof the ball or play a rushed pass. Something that he hopefully works on or comes with maturity to be more calm in such circumstances.

      Not long back from a layoff and having him back now finally frees up another midfielder who no longer has to play right back.

      We should see the benefits of that now VVD returns to the set up and Fabinho can go into midfield as well.

      All of a sudden Milner, Hendo and Fab can concentrate on playing midfield and that gives us options off the bench too.

      It will be interesting to see who misses out against United and who comes in. I think Milner and Keita will be the odd ones out, but Milner could come in on the basis of playing only 20 minutes yesterday.

      As for Trent he was poor yesterday but I'm glad to have him back.

      Just read some interesting stats on Trent

      2018-19

      When he is playing we average 2.5 pts per game, 1.58 without
      2.25 Goals per game when he plays, 1.41 without him
      0.5 Conceded when he plays, 1 per game without him

      Can't be just coincidence.  Since he got injured we haven't been the same.  I think when he gets forward he actually frees up a little space for Mo.  Also at the back , when he plays i think he helps whoever is our RCB of the day. He adds so much to our attack and defence , between him and Andy on the other side. We have 2 fullbacks both with incredible workrate. Need to keep this lad healthy the rest of the way.
