      Bench already looks tat. (Ominous sign for the season ahead)

      The only promise of something different is Solanke.

      Team was pretty much as expected. Hopefully the fb will change the dynamic of our play today because it was a huge problem last season which limited us.

      Let's hope those eleven restore spirit in this great club with a good start to the campaign.

      C'mon lads!

      Robertson not on the bench means that he is still working is way up.

      Solanke is ahead of Woodburn as well.

      We can do this. Come on Reds.

      Despite the Summer transfer window, and the pre-season break..... that bench looks shocking!!

      Solanke will probably get on the pitch, but who else would you look to?

      First 11 players was massively predictable too.

      Without Coutinho, we will need Hendo to really step up and look to play Salah and Mane in. The onus is on our captain to create.

      Exactly, he needs to play those long balls that he showed in the pre-season.

      Solanke, Grujic and Origi in that order.

      Surely we could have put Woodburn in ahead of either Klavan or Gomez on the bench? Don't see why we have both (and Milner who can cover at full back).

      Will be a nervy one this, can see us nicking it 2-1.

      Think it's up to Can and Wijnaldum to be stepping up and creating to be honest.

      Nervous to see Moreno in the line-up but then I always am. Midfield three looks functional rather than creative but our front three will cause em problems. Key man today is Mane, he'll have chances, we just need him to have his shooting boots on. Throw in a few injuries and the bench is a real concern but then most knew that already.

      Yeah, plus him and Klopp have been having problems for the last 6 months.  Not enough man hugs from Jürgen has left the little guy feeling emotionally unsatisfied....

      Expect the usual dross performance by Hendo and Can, they are a pairing that really doesn't work and I doubt ever will.

      Hopefully Solanke gets on the pitch, got high hopes for him, looked very good through the summer.

      Debut Salah goal be good

      or was it too many man hugs?

      We may never know the true extent of trauma from that relationship.

      Agreed, I'd like to see Gini come out the bottle for this away fixture.

      I think he's a good player and the most Lampard-esque of our midfielders who ghosts into the box and adds that extra body and goal threat to our attack. He's also neat and tidy on the ball, and I think Watford will be deep and dense for this so I don't envisage long raking Henderson balls being pinged about in an open spacious game hitting the likes of Mane and Salah often. Hope I'm wrong, but I don't think Watford will be that naive.
