      Liverpool 3-0 Southampton: In game and Post Match discussion
      Sep 22, 2018 01:59:43 pm







      Anfield going for 6 wins out of 6







      Starting XI: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Henderson, Shaqiri, Mane, Salah, Firmino.

      Subs: Mignolet, Fabinho, Milner, Keita, Gomez, Sturridge, Moreno.

      Liverpool make three changes for this afternoon’s Premier League clash with Southampton at Anfield as Xherdan Shaqiri is handed his full debut.

      The Swiss forward comes into the starting line-up in place of James Milner, while Roberto Firmino is restored to attack.

      Elsewhere, Joel Matip is drafted in for Joe Gomez in the centre of defence.

      Not sure Keita settling in as well as most thought he would have started. No problem with changes Just Matip who makes me slightly nervous

      Rotation maybe necessary and seen as the right thing these days,  doesn't mean i have to like it

      Thought he'd give one of the center backs a rest. Hopefully Matip can return to the form he had two seasons ago.

      Looks like Shaquiri as attacking midfielder, and Milner probably just needs a rest.

      I think Sturridge on the bench is smart. He is too fragile to be running out again after three days. Look for  him back vs. Chelsea in League Cup.

      It's a winning side today, for sure.

      Only Matip is a little worrying but he may stuns us with a good performance!

      Come on Reds. 3-0 for us please :)

      I am actually not too concerned with VVD at the back tbh, but would have prefered to see Gomez start and then rest both, VVD and Gomez midweek.

      Also, Shaqiri should give us that explosiveness and creativity in midfield that we have sorely missed after Ox's injury vs Roma, something Salah has missed too imo.

      Makes sense to give Milner a rest. Gomez to take stock, clever move by Klopp. Just precaution in case Gomez makes a mistake that could set his development back a bit. Thought Fabinho might have got the nod over Gini but no problems with the line up. Shadiri should now get a few starts to put pressure on the rest. Clever line up by Klopp.

      Yep.
      A 541, as they seek to deny us space and time, then try to counter.

      Saints have been vulnerable later in the game this season, so we might need to be patient, but we should break through.

      No idea why I put 4-0 on the prediction thingy, but f**k it, it's done now  :laugh:

      Quite surprised that Keita has made way three times now in our seven games. 

      Don't think his performances have warranted it so I'm thinking maybe he has a minor issue?

      I don't understand the Gomez decision, but perhaps he picked up a knock in training or he's getting leggy and can't make it to league cup.

      Surprised on Matip in for Gomez, glad to see Shaqiri starting and with games coming up can see why he's rested Milner.

      Armchairing it today as letting my brother take his little lad the match, so gonna have to find a stream to watch it on.

      Three points please Redmen!

      Looking forward to seeing what Shaqiri can do in that attacking mid position. If we have 4 at the front interchanging positons Southampton are gonna have vertigo by games end.

      I'm interested to see if Shaqiri does the mad chase after the ball when he starts a game - certainly does it as a sub.

      Big test for him today.  I know there's no such thing as your first 14 players - but he probably needs to be in that group if he's going to be with us beyond a season IMO.

      Shaqiri needs to show that he deserves a place in the starting XI.
