      Good little CH is Klavan.

      Had another good game.

      Neat and tidy.

      Excellent against the bitters, think Lukaku is still in his pocket.

      It's subtitled and I had to keep pausing to catch up, but this is a very good video about "Raku" that exposes his attitude as a professional. It's really moving to see someone get to the top through hard work, and enter the final stage of their career having earned a shot at the highest level of the game on merit, and merit alone.

      I don't particularly rate the guy. He was okay today. Positioning was a bit off but whatever.

       But what the fuckkkk was his tackle on Fellaini? Outrageous!! Can't have a scared viking at cb!

      Could have cost us a goal again today. Not good enough and we really need Matip back.

      You pay £3M for a senior player and it's what you expect, a player who is championship standard.

      Really the 5th best CB on the books getting way too much game time.

      I don't agree with your judging players by their price tag, but I agree with the sentiment. 
      Klavan's had some good games, but usually not when he's up against counter-attacking teams.

      Whatever Sakho has done or said, he's on our books and not playing.  Surely we can mend that bridge and get one of our best defenders back out there?

      Very, very odd. Said it at the time. You go to Estonia for a cheap stag weekend, nt for their 30 year old centre backs.

      I find it more odd given the fact that, yes he had a tough couple of games in January, but put a MOTM performance at Goodison Park and generally looked far more natural and ready than he is given credit for.

      With Lucas - I suppose it's over. If he can't do the position he was originally bought for (defensive midfield) and your still accommodating him in the team in other positions then it's screamingly obvious that his time is up.

      I think i agree. I mean his signing was wrong on quite a few levels, but the bloke is here now, and he is a centre back.

      Surely he has got to be better than poor old Lucas. I felt sorry for him after about half an hour. Not particularly his fault that he is struggling at CB considering he has very few tools to his game that would make you want to play him there.

      Klavan is here, he surely has to now use him when the time comes.

      Agreed.  Or Gomez.  Unless there's other reasons that neither played, although Klavan was on the bench.   
      I thought he'd played well in some games, as Frankly pointed out.  Lucas has had the odd reasonable performance at CB but never looks any use against pace, and that's all you're going to get v. Leicester.  Bonkers decision by JK, and symptomatic of what I feel is his weakness - unwillingness to adapt for different tactical challenges.

      I like him. Bring Sakho back and we have four good centre backs. The needs of the squad are much more urgent elsewhere.

      I'm hoping Klopp can iron out his differences with Sakho, by which I mean Sakho bucks his ideas up ;)
