      funny how all these players are getting the Harry Kewel fitness regime around the time of a big final.
      Naby is a massive bonus coming back now along with Shaq and Lallana the squad is really looking strong.Hopefully Joel will make it on the bench for Saturday.

      Dont think you will see Matip until FA cup game at best

      Too soon for Joel I think, Walt.  I bet not until Boxing Day at the earliest. once he can start team training, Klopp always opts to build the returning player's fitness before he actually gets into a match.

      Can't remember the last time I have wanted a player to do as well as Naby.

      His genuine quality is there for all to see and again his starting to showcase it, hopefully he gets a run of games to keep his morale high.

      Not long ago some were complaining about lack of goals from midfield.   Plenty of goals from midfield of late especially now that Naby and Ox in particular look real goal threats,  some may have to move on and blame allison for lack of goals.

      He really has underwhelmed when it comes to scoring for us, has our goalkeeper. Has to be said we should be in the market for a goalkeeper who can put the ball into the back of the net.

      Rogerio Ceni should be available... He's probably about 50 by now, mind.

      Doesn't run does he this lad, just glides over the pitch.

      Last two games have showed what he's all about. Now he needs to stay fit and work on his consistency.

      What a difference a week can make :)
      Two starts in a row, goals, assist, good performances - come from almost nowhere right up front.
      Brilliant that he's fit and firing, playing well and another serious starting option in the middle.

      Just needs a bit of luck on the injury front , has all the tools , him and Ox firing for the second half of the season must have Klopp sleeping easy .

      A ridiculously good performance by the guy and back to back MOTM votes from me. Talk about a new signing.

      The thing I’ve noticed is that he appears to be quicker on the ball than off it. A few times you see him chasing back and he seems to be really labouring but when he has that ball at his feet, he’s off like a whippet.

      Would rest him against Watford and bring Ox in to the mix. It’s a difficult one because you don’t want to stop his momentum but at the same time you want to manage his fitness. Think that will be Jürgen’s thoughts and we’ll see him rested on Saturday.

      The goal against Bournemouth bears out perfectly the whippet analogy, the defenders dìdn't get a sñiff.  Don't think the ĺad wòuld be too keen with any talk of the bench after being sidelined foŕ so long with injuries, his hunger for game time was written all over his face,  he was like a coiled spring.
      The momentum is there and with Chamberlain chomping at the bit it's a case of competition at it's healthiest.

      Against Bournemouth was it, he didn’t play against Everton sure?

      Absolutely mate I’m sure whoever is sidelined will be disappointed but we have a real wealth of options in midfield at the moment. Personally would love to see him start though he is a joy to watch.

      Depends on his recovery time for now I think.

      He was out for quite a while, and his legs might not be quite there yet.

      He was looking a bit leggy last night after 70 mins or so, but he kept going which is a good sign.

      Bottom line is that fatigue causes injuries, and I don't think Klopp will want to take chances with him.

      I am sure Jürgen will take the WCC seriously but it could really be a mental break form the EPL and the CL. Naby needs careful monitoring for fitness we need him as we need OX , Shaq ,Adam and Divok, infact the entire squad is going to be so important this season.

      I think we need to keep him fresh though just don't want him to break down again.  I wouldn't start him against watford maybe on the bench.

      Don’t forget, the injury problems in the last 6 months was largely from him being taken out by Rakitic and his national side playing him when he was far from ready. I don’t think we’d make that mistake and it seems we’ve been giving him as much time as possible to get over any slight knock or issue he might still have had.

      Yeh but he has played 2 games in a row I just wouldn't risk him starting against Waford.  Coming back into a team after a long while and finding some good form.  3 starts in a week is risky I just don't like the idea.   Agree that he has been unfortunate and any label of being injury prone is premature looking at the facts that you have posted.  But bring him off the bench for the last 15-20 minutes.

      If Jk thinks he's fit enough, play him again against Watford. 

      He's just building a bit of momentum after 18 months of false starts, so let's capitalise on that.

      Sure he's gagging for a decent run in the side as well.
