      Holy sh*t - just watched that.

      Absolutely incredible - he’s so technical on the ball. Pure class.

      Agreed, Aussie.  That midfield from yesterday is our 1st choice for me.  Fab & Keita will get better the more they play and Gini is having his best season to date.

      Klopp won’t have “first choice midfield” - he will have a midfield for each different style of opponent.

      That's just a polite way of saying that Fabinho and Keita are the future of the midfield and the others will still get chances.

      If anyone can't see what these two bring to the team over thier counter parts they are blind.

      It's no coincidence that now they are playing we are dominating the middle and attacking a lot more.

      Make no mistake this lad will replace Henderson, he is streets ahead in everything he does. He done more in that one game than Hendo usually does in 5.

      The lad is a monster and he will only get better.

      Tackles, through balls, interceptions, harassing, forward passed, driving forward with the ball and shooting.

      The lad has got the lot, top performance, can't wait until he starts hitting 100% because if you watched him play for Monaco you'll know even yesterday he was probably only playing at about 75% of his potential.

      Aside a few sloppy passes this guy is the real deal at DM bringing out the best from Henderson and Gini.

      Firstly he knows exactly what is required to play at the base of the midfield.

      Every player makes a few bad passes don't care who they are and Fab is as human as the rest, he is improving every game and can only get better, don't forget this lad has not been at Anfield long and still has a way to go but be sure he will be a major integral part of the Liverpool team. Keep up the good work is all I say and make the crowd sway.

      A few sloppy passes last night, but he was far from the only one, on what looked like a bit of a boggy pitch.

      He did his job well, and his interchanging with Henderson was good, where one dropped into DM and the other pushed up.
      It's nice to see that kind of pairing again, and it will only get better.

      Very good shift from him last night, he looks like he found his footing with having be a little quicker on the ball and the pace of Premiership itself. Starting really show why we splashed the cash on him.

      #think both he and Naby are going to be massive for us in the new year as both of them will be fresh and raring to go.
      Delighted for him to get his goal you could see how much it meant to him.

      Generally not one to go looking for negatives after a 5-1 thumping or any win, in this case of the Arse, but I mentioned before we started these three games (prior to the Newcastle one), that I'd rather not see him yet in high-paced games against the top 6. Even against Wolverhampton, a good footballing team that pressed us, he struggled in the first half.

      He has looked very good and comfortable against teams that sit back and allow him time on the ball, he can pick a pass, looks composed etc., but I haven't seen him have a good game against a good team yet, to be honest. I'm sure he'll improve over time and will get used to the higher pace in top PL games, but so far he has been fairly average. Far too casual on the ball sometimes and that pass in the first half, unforgivable in my opinion. Didn't have a clue about his surroundings it seemed. You can't have that. It nearly cost us against Wolves and could've cost us again tonight. It will come back to bite us in the ass at some point.

      Improved again as the game went on, but by then the game was already won. Needs to up his game if he wants to keep the likes of Wijnaldum and Henderson out of the team against top opposition. No coincidence it'll likely be Henderson starting against City.

      I think he had a poor 20-30 mins at home and poor 45 mins away vs Arsenal, but overall, I think he has been superb, even vs the high paced/high pressing teams we played against (Wolves (A) Red Star (H) and Chelsea (H)), I thought he played very well overall.

      The only problem is that he takes that extra bit longer to settle down into those intensive games, and whilst he has been lucky that his mistakes haven't led to goals, as you say, it could come back and bite us in the ass if he continues to struggle with the pace of the opposition at the beginning, so I totally understand you prefering the likes of, Hendo, Wijnaldum & Milner over Fab vs attacking teams. However, in his defence, once he settles into the game and gets going, he is damn good.

      Agreed.

      He seems to start the first 15 mins of games nervy and makes some loose passes. But once he gets the nerves out of his system he is a rock in midfield. The way he dominated the ball in the second half and strided forward reminded me a bit of Patrick Vieira back in the day.

      His running in is two minutes (too long) however he's a players that grows every second that pass. He reminds me of Didi Hamann through his slim figure and movement.

      I think Jürgen may rest him Thursday as he gave the ball away a couple of times and City will punish us for that.
      Definitely getting better and he does he best work in and around the centre circle he is going to be  big player for us in the new year especially in the CL.

      Reckon it will be Hendo, Wijnaldum and Milner if the latter is fit. If not, I have a feeling that he will go with Keita over Fabinho. May be way off with that considering Keita’s lack of recent game time but I think Fabinho’s mistakes in the early stages of recent games might be a factor. We will certainly not get away with that against City.

      We were lucky to get away with it, but against City I'd love to see two DM's helping out the back 5 with Gini/Milner or Shaq in front of them.

      maybe big players need big games to show just how good they are. He has made a couple of bad passes but all players make mistakes and it is something he can easily sort out.
      I think we need him for his reading of the game and his tackling which really does break up play.
