      I don't see him starting tomorrow but he prob will be called upon if we need a goal, he has looked good so far when he has played. I say he will be starting mid-week vs Napoli

      I’d be inclined to play him ahead of Mane to be honest, then bring Mane on for him

      I'd give Sadio a day off an give the wee tank a run at the weekend.
      He's played well whenever given a chance, and we need the squad guys who are pushing for a place to get some games and confidence under their belts.
      Not sure how likely that is though.

      Think it’s very likely this week. Mane had surgery, although it’s only his thumb, I don’t think we should be risking anything against what should be (reiterate the ‘should be’)... a straight forward game.

      Quality player and improving his game already under Klopp.

      Not surprised Shaq is looking like the bargain signing of the season.

      Shaq is a real deal. He made the clinical pass to Mo. Now, he needs more time to get authority & rhythm. Henderson's injury hopefully provides him with minutes. We should definitely give Shaq a try to be our new "Coutinho" before we look elsewhere for a playmaker.

      Had a good game yesterday, but If we are to play him in an attack midfield role, maybe we should consider going for a double pivot.

      For a player that many felt wasn’t worth the gamble, even at 12mill, he now has 4 or 5 assists this season in very little game time.

      Not bad going, not forgetting how well he done in pre-season either.

      I was quite impressed by how disciplined he was against Huddersfield he is clearly taking onboard Jurgens way of playing for the Team.
      He is only going to get better and I cant see why he shouldn't be on the same level as Mane. Bobby and Mo he is certainly talented enough

      Phenomenal!

      I think most here would've been happy with these kinds of performances had we paid 50m for him and his name was Fekir. Up until now, for the price tag, the lad is an absolute steal.

      He's slowly going to make Klopp figure out a way to bench one the mid three in order for him to start either by switching to a 4-2-3-1 or by tweaking the 4-3-3 in order for him to sit more centrally and close to the front three. I think the first option is much more realistic tho because Firmino is responding very well to being thrown into the number 10 position (his original position after all)  and Shaq is finding the way to be very creative from the right side all that while Salah's looking good upfront (Southampton and tonight being two of his best games).

      A lot of people spoke of a lack of creativity behind the front three in recent weeks and it's pretty clear that when he's on the pitch this problem is much less important.

      No I have personal reasons as does Xherdan. Both our countries have been raped by Serbs for centuries on end.

      I know. Let's drag the club into the sectarian joys of Balkan f**king nationalism.

      I'd be very surprised if Xherdan pulls any such stunt in Belgrade. Don't think Jürgen would be happy, and I suspect he will have a word with the wee man before the match.

      Xherdan may have personal reasons for hating Serbs. That's up to him. It's not something for him to drag the club into, and I'm sure he won't.

      Keep it about football guys, i know nothing about what happened and perhaps some things not good happened that left people upset, but football isn't about wars or politics, it's a sport.. the best sport and should remain untainted by the dark side of real life.

      Welcome to European history.Everyone can have some kinda beef with some one else our manager is German ffs but the club is multi ethnic,multi religion. i hope Shaqiri isn't as stupid and bitter as you and he knows better than bringing some sh*te down on the club.You've banged your Croatian nationalist sh*te in another thread,no?that f**king metal band? We are a non discriminatory club,think about it.

      I thought he did well.

      Yes, the opposition were a bit sh*t, but even apart from his creativity, his tracking back and workrate were excellent.

      If Klopp can get him playing the same as Ox does, I'll be very impressed.
      He has the skills, but it seems like his attitude has been questioned a lot.

      He's already done that on the worlds biggest football stage whilst playing under a different flag so yea he must be pretty stupid as you say. There's every chance it could happen and if he does I wouldn't flinch is all I'm saying. All a bit rich being called out for self preservation especially in this context from a Yank.

      There is something wrong this this sentiment, all people from different cultures have and do not have elements of "self preservation", it is probably a big subject that would take too long to get into. It is bordering on racist to insinuate that this is unique to one nation.
