      Definitely missed the big fella last night.

      Gomez looked very rusty, understandable given his lack of minutes but can't wait to have Joel back in with Virgil.

      Anyone know if Joel is supposed to back in vs. Leicester?

      Might be worth playing Lovren rather than Joe at the moment.

      Umm, No. did you happen to watch the League Cup match? You were there in person as I recall.

      Lovren was dreadful. Joe had some bad moments vs. Salzburg for sure, but he is a better defender than Lovren and I expect a much better performance tomorrow.

      I'm pretty sure Lovren was just as rusty as Gomez.

      Lovren is a very good footballer, given to massive brain farts that affect perceptions of him.
      Physically, he has everything.
      Mentally, he seems weak to me.

      The poblem is not his talent, it's what's between his ears.
      He compounds his mistakes by trying too hard to make up for them.

      Matip on the other hand, when he makes a mistake, he just stays calm and gets on with the job.
      Which is as it should be.

      Yes it is Lovren's brain that is the issue, but it causes bad things and i will choose Gomez every time.

      Yeh Gomez is a bit rusty if he has a few games he will be OK.  I wouldn't risk playing Lovren he has a couple of mistakes on a good day!

      I hear what you are saying but these guys need a few games here and there to shake off the rust and keep them fresh, plus motivated.

      Well done Joel, you deserve it. He will rest in these two weeks to go again for the Manure game.

      Nice to see as he tends to fly under the radar.  Do the players vote on this?

      It's not Joels fault that you are only 4 feet tall,joking aside well done to Joel and to Jürgen Klopp for getting so many players to sign new contracts.

      Well deserved indeed.

      Questioned him at times but the last 12 months he has been superb.

      Love it when he brings the ball forward and opens up the game before drilling the   ball into the front mens feet.

      Top CB who compliments our world class CB.

      Hope they will be our defensive partnership for years.

      Played well but really thought he should have stopped that cross coming in to Rashford, for their goal. He was in front of him. Gutted.

      Watch it again, rashford makes 2 dummy runs. You can't defend everything. Sometimes you just have to hold your hands up and say the striker was better at that moment in time
