      Fitness training on his own think Klopp might have been a bit pissed off being asked about him I reckon 2 weeks

      Klopp should be more pissed off at himself at playing him in a dead rubber game where he got injured!!!

      Yep two great chances. Hard to be tough on the leagues top scorer, but really wish he'd stuck one away at least.

      If Salah scores from that great chance in the first minute then we win, its a big big difference between us and City, they very often score in the first few minutes when they are blitzing, we don't and then the team gradually lose faith whilst the opposition grow into the game.

      Please don't think Im trolling  you because I'm not. Very interesting comment you make so feel as I have to pass comment. So if Salah had scored that goal and your forecast of going on to win stands up I presume  you wouldn't be having ago at Klopp?

      Klopp has come into some fair criticism of you recently. Can it really be all his fault like many of your post suggest?

      No not all Klopp's fault, a lot is on the players and of course the horrendous luck we've had with injuries, but ultimately Klopp sets the tactics and selects the players and he's been making some big mistakes recently.  For example despite our injuries our team should still be far too strong for Brighton, they should have at least the same energy and work rate and should definitely have more skill and inventive tactics but we don't.

      In relation  to selecting the players it can get difficult for any manager and being honest I can't really call Klopp on his team selections.

       I'll tell you why.
      When the manager gives a format on how individuals should play (( with your depleted squad ))  he will tell a player to do the following.
       Example, man mark joe bloggs  and don't let him out of your site and keep up with the pace. Now if that player  is Usian Bolt it simply isn't happening. Bit like telling Gomez to take the role of VVD, it's impossible to fill such is the gaping hole on player quality.

      So in reality here's how I see it. Your under performing not because of Klopps tactics but more a case he hasn't got the tools to play with such the debt of your injury list.

      I agree with that to an extent Keith, but it comes under my point of Klopp needing to find a better solution, giving better instructions to the players and selecting the right ones for the right game. For example Milner should never have started yesterday, that game was crying out for someone like Ox and Curtis in midfield players who can take the ball and push forwards, Milner looked knackered from the 30 minute mark and I would rather have kept him fresh for City.
      Other oddities were bringing on Origi for Bobby, I just cannot understand Klopp's fixation with Origi. Sure Bobby didn't have a great game but he had a couple of half chances and was arguably our best threat in the game. Origi on the other hand did absolutely f**k all after he came on, zero apart from one horrendous attempted pass to Trent that went into row Z!

      Heimdall is not entirely wrong on Klopp taking some blame, however. As he mentioned, we could have really used Ox or Jones from the start and a 35yo Milner should not have started his 3rd game in 6 days. He just doesn't have the legs to be effective for that many minutes in a short days span.

      Of course it's not Klopp's fault that Salah chocked away clear chances. Being up 1-0 in the first couple minutes would have been massive and the game likely goes a very different way as Brighton would have to open up more.

      Taki not being given chances and loaned out in favor of Origi makes no sense either.

      Point taken, I'm just not sure if Klopp likes Ox in the side as in my opinion he's very one directional. Never rated him  (( at 40 million )) even before he got injured and now also looks like he's lost a yard of pace too.

      I'm pretty sure Ox & Origi will be gone in summer transfer but obviously no easy fix now window closed. This year will probably go down as one of the freakiest of all time such is the up and downs of a torrired season for many clubs.

      That injury against Roma is a crying shame. He was absolutely stellar prior to that.

      I still think he offers more on the team than Milner, who was gassed from so many minutes in a short span. Ox, while not at his best since the injury, offers directness, ability to take the ball and run into through the midfield and a strong shot (plus the desire to shoot) from outside the box.

      Would also like to see Salah in the striker's role. Think he needs to adapt his game like Ronaldo did (albeit he done it at a later age). He doesn't have the dribbling ability or change of pace to beat his man like Sadio does. He's too predictable as well for a winger. Think playing on the shoulder of the defence would certainly cause them problems. I realise it's tougher to do against teams who defend deep but if a chance falls for him in the middle as it has done for Bobby, I think he takes it 9/10.

      Salah scores a penalty and gets a pass despite doing nothing else all game long.

      Salah scores goals, plain and simple. Even in games hengoes missing he seems to find a way to get on the team sheet half the time. The other 2 don't have that in them, granted Salah is the pen taker. However, he shouldn't be punished for being one of the best pen takers in the world

      Dude, he is our top scorer by a margin. What else do you want him to do? Got the penalty,  scored.

      And he is premier league's top goal scorer too. What else is needed of him? its others who need to look at themselves. Apart from 5 games after Palace, man has been delivering the goods regularly.

      Agree with this at times we need to be more flexible with front 3 against Utd for example two very slow CBs we could have utilised him more through middle nullified his pace against Shaw and on other side Wan Bissaka who are both quick

      I've got to second that. The same people who come here complaining ''he did nothing else'' than score and assist will be the first to complain if he has a fantastic game and does not score or assist.

      Just as a reader I feel exhausted for him. He literally can't catch a break no matter how good he does.

      I'm not against constructive criticism but it feels like the criticism in question is elastic and take different shapes depending on what the people throwing it need. If he scores its ''he didn't do much else'' or ''he scored but missed an easy one''. If he has a fantastic game and does not score you get the ''but we pay him to score goals''. If he has a bad game he ''never was quite like that first season and we could sell him in order to buy that or this guy''.

      The adaptive criticism isn't that much of a problem as much as is the willingness of some people to completely forget their last criticism and say something completely contradictory to what they said a game or two ago despite Mo's performance being overall (emphasis on overall) quite stable this year

      Our top scorer and in many games the only player who looks like scoring.

      Pretty sure he's the least of our worries.

      By the way great to see him go down for the pen. Wouldn't have been given otherwise.

      Good to see that, a kind of "We're all this together" type of call.

      After everything of the past week, good to see a senior player and I imagine they'll be a few others before Tuesday saying similar.
