      He's awesome ain't he? Would be delighted to see him start against City. Let's bring the 2017-2018 side to this event.  To me this was the moment of our 2017-2018 season:

      ...and what about our epic league match with them back in January 2018?

      The case for starting the Ox is strong!

      He is well capable of scoring some cracking goals, as we all know. Hope Klopp has the confidence to play AOC from the start. Although may start on the bench, coming on later in the game.

      Didnt he say himself his pressing game still isnt where it can be?

      If there's any doubts about that then he won't be played from the start against City,  certainly from a midfield position. Klopp will want a real hard working midfield to combat against City's technically gifted midfield.

      Absolutely, his post match interview after the Genk match was very insightful. He really does love being here with us.

      Always spot on, very well educated you can tell. I was so happy we signed him.

      I often thought Klopp plan with the middle once everyone is fit that two of Fabinho/Gini/Hendo will start with either Ox/Ketia taking the other spot for a more balanced midfield in majority of our matches while maybe in very tough fixtures he would revert to more defensive midfield of Hendo/Fabinho/Gini. Due to lack of form and fitness issues he really hasn't had a chance to play it out but with Ox coming into his own maybe we will see more as the season goes on just hope history doesn't repeat it self as Ox career seem to been finding form only to suffer long term injury.

      Also with his recent call up with the national squad and that hole they seem to have in the middle next to Hendo/Rice that they tried to fill wit Deli Alli, Lindgaard and Barkley that Ox could be perfect fit as would be a similar role that he plays for Liverpool. Plus it would be nice for him to get a game over the international break as he still needs minutes to find his match sharpness.

      There are games enough for everybody in the midfield to start - and Henderson is a vital part of our winning team.

      Nah. The game v City demonstrated why the team selection remains as it was.
      Played at 100 mph. Constant pressing from front to back.
      Ox said himself he needs to get up to speed on that.

      Lovely goal for England tonight and a confident showing albeit against a very poor side. Think he’ll play a big part in this crazy run of fixtures coming up.

      Good for him to keep the scoring boots on with another goal and get a start. I don't expect him to start the next game (I think Hendo will get the start over him) but be nice to see him hit a rich vein of form going into the Christmas period.

      Pitch looks over watered, players slipping ans passes falling short and tempting defenders into sliding for 50/50s.

      Ox looked excellent on international duty which should bode well for LFC with the busy Christmas period on the schedule. The level of competition for midfield places is scary this year. We’ve got 7 lads who all bring something to the table and they should all get minutes over the next 6 weeks.

We’ve got 7 lads who all bring something to the table and they should all get minutes over the next 6 weeks.

      Realistically, 5 of those are of top quality capable of starting PL and CL games: Fab, Gini, Hendo, Ox and Keita. Milner, Lallana and Shaq are good options off the bench but not starters (maybe for domestic cup games).

      Overall, I'm very happy with the options we have for the middle, it's been a while since we've had genuine quality competing for spots.

      Long term, I'd still want improvements and if that means introducing competition to avoid complacency, then so be it. But I'm no longer screaming for an attacking midfielder in the mould of Coutinho. City prove that spending big money to bring in more competition isn't the automatic answer. Crucially, whenever any of those 5 step onto the pitch, they look like they give it everything they have so I don't even think complacency is an issue for the foreseeable future.

      I'm struggling to find anything to complain about these days actually, Klopp needs to take a good hard look at himself for that.

      Now this is my only negative from today but I have to get it off my chest.

      Now I know the Boss is the Boss but I was pissed with him during that match.

      Thought Ox was totally ineffectual throughout and was screaming at Klopp to get him off and either Lallana or Milner to come on but Jürgen didn't even look like making a change till it was forced on him.

      Was gutted when Ox went down and was smashing the turf. Thought the worst and blamed the Boss for keeping him on so long.

      Should I be ashamed at myself for questioning the boss after everything he has done for us? Feel like a C**t now but not at the time!

      Got to say - I was mightily impressed with Lallana's performance when he came on. He displayed effortless control and discipline. We're gonna need him over the next few weeks no doubt but it was good to see him come on and, in my opinion, improve our performance levels.

      From the way he was jumping around on them crutches in the dressing room video, I’d hazard a guess and say it shouldn’t be as bad as we all feared hope not anyways ,
