      Trent was never great defensively..

      And never this bad either.

      Trent must be getting shagged by the owners too.

      Yeah he's had a dip this season, no question. Mainly going forward though. Defensively he has always been a touch suspect (just he makes up for it going forward). This season, he's been inconsistent going forward, and his defensive lapses haven't been getting covered by Gomez or Matip.

      Trent was never great but never this bad. I’d say he was UNDERRATED defensively because I remember going up against City people would say “Sane is going to have Trent for lunch” but he would actually have a very solid game defensively.

      This year, however, he has no clue defensively and his mistakes are of wide variety. Today it was he got skinned, against Brighton was his lack of positional awareness and not realizing a player was behind him all by himself and against Soton was his indecision and letting the ball go right past him.

      It was been very costly.

      I still can't believe he let Thiago take that free kick, just outside the box when Sadio was clipped.


      That was Trent territory!

      Not this season though, everyone has sailed over the bar so far.

      He's not adjusted to not having Matip/Virgil/Gomez covering for him (not to mention Fab and/or Hendo when they are in midfield).

      Some of that's down to the player, some has to be down to coaching/tactics. It's not like it's not well known that Trent's better forward than backward...if you know he doesn't have the cover he usually does, there needs to be adjustments made.

      I actually didn't think he did too bad yesterday barring that brain fart against Sterling.

      Trent was never great defensively..

      Then that is something he should be working on, but I get the sense that he's a little bit too happy with himself, I think Roy Keane hit the nail on the head yesterday when he said some of our players are believing their own hype, and that I blame Klopp for, its his job to keep their feet on the ground but I think he's way to much of a softy, a bit like Roy Evans in that respect.

      Sterling was a handful, but I agree Trent is starting to regain his prowess going forward. I expect him to have a big game on Saturday.

      Stats show his dip in form this season but that’s to be expected as teams work on cutting out his supply.

      It’s the midfield who need to compensate.

      I’ll put that down to fatigue mate..

      We need the midfield to start contributing to goals but that’s going to be difficult whilst play at CB..

      Yup the issues we are facing mate can be traced back to the lack of investment, it was always going to catch up eventually despite the miracles of Klopp.

      Definitely starting to get back into his stride a little now, we’re unplayable once Trent and Robbo are on it so hopefully we start seeing it week in week out from them both.
