      Pre-Match: West Ham v Liverpool Mon 4th Feb 20:00 KO

      5 points clear of City, next up, a game against an out of form West Ham.

      If Trent and Lovren are fit they have to start.

      Fabinho should also start:

      Alisson

      Alexander-Arnold
      Lovren
      Van Dijk
      Robertson

      Wijnaldum
      Henderson (c)
      Fabinho

      Salah
      Firmino
      Mane

      Subs:

      Mignolet
      Matip
      Milner
      Shaqiri
      Lallana
      Keita
      Sturridge

      West Ham are likely to be missing Arnautovic, after he left their last game on crutches.

      So Andy Carroll could start..

      This will be a tough game but I see us winning 2-0 👍🏼

      These have a real injury crisis. I really hope Klopp has away from the cameras had a few words with the lads. We need more from the front boys in particular. Hopefully this game can get them firing.

      Shaqiri is slightly out of favour but I think the boss likes him in there. Need the injury update. The usual suspects will be looking for City to get 3 points and put the pressure on us...but I think Arsenal might just do something against City.

      All being equal I think we can put up a good show against West Ham.

      I'd love it, but their defense is in shambles. Maybe givin Gini some rest for Keita? I'd try everything to get him rolling (again) and he needs games to get it back. He'd be such a gadget down the stretch. Maybe it's too forcing, but Keita is like a Ferrari driven in 2nd gear, you wanna unleash the animal.

      Yes I just feel Nabby needs a purple patch..a 20 minutes when something comes off for him. Klopp knows there is a player in there somewhere, just got to coax him out.

      Fabianski is a doubt for them, hopefully he doesn’t recover for it, same with Arnautovic and any other injuries they have.

       I want to see Fabinho and Hendo in the double 6 with Wijnaldum in a more freer attacking role (similar to how he plays for Netherlands) but playing on the left side in the half space instead of wide left/left inside forward.

      I think that can work as can Naby or Hendo in the advanced role.

      Yeah, Naby for sure, but not sure about Hendo in the advanced role when we are playing the double 6.

      I don't think we have seen Wijnaldum in an offensive role with a double 6 behind him, but he is more than capable as he has shown throughout the years and for the NT. Will be interesting to see if it happens!

      Should we be worried about Anderson vs Milner?! I think Anderson is a better player than Zaha...

      Bloody hate Monday games.
      Could be a fair bit of pressure on by then.... can’t see Arse doing anything as they’ve literally no centre backs, and would expect Spurs to beat Newcastle  and suddenly they’re 2 and 4 points behind!!!

      West Ham seem a weird team. Could be dangerous. Wouldn’t mind seeing Arnautovic miss out.. he was superb at Anfield last season..

      He’s played it before Jürgen’s time.

      Perfectly capable.

      I prefer Hendo / Fab as the sitters - not sure it’s a double pivot but that’s a whole other debate 🤣

      Point is we have plenty of options once we get a couple of defenders back.

      What we don’t have is a number 10 - and Jürgen clearly wants one, only the right one - but we’ve not had that all season and coped.

      I wonder who Pellegrini will put up against James. That is going to decide our stablility for me.

                               Alisson
             Milner Lovren Virgil Robertson
                         Hendo   Fabinho
                              Wijnaldom
                   Firmino  Salah   Mane

      This is the likely line up that i believe will rip the hammers a new one on Monday,
      It matters not a jot what Shitty do cos we aint losing this and will with a bit of luck actually extend our lead ,

      If Trent is indeed ready i doubt Jürgen will risk him but might give him 20 mins 2nd half,
      I like the idea of a double 6 of Hendo & Fab, with Gini in the advance role, Fab could also join attacks when and if,

      I think we've just come out of the toughest part of the season and from now on will get better, we have players coming back from injury and we are within weeks of having a fully fit and full sqaud, just in time for the run in,

      From what we've been through to date, its hard to imagine that the bumps in the road we may come across will be severe enough to f**k us up completely,

      Keep saying it...but....WE GOT THIS !!...

      ...I've just believed it earlier than most .

      Could be tricky, but with Fab back in we look at lot more solid side.  No silly mistakes and we should win 4-0

      West Ham seem a weird team. Could be dangerous. Wouldn’t mind seeing Arnautovic miss out.. he was superb at Anfield last season..

      I think a lot of pressure stems from us. The atmosphere at Anfield on Wednesday sounded very tense and you can see it affecting the players. It feels like we into the last 4-5 games but we've only just hit February and still have 42 points to play for!!! There is a feeling that one bad result and we're done for or one great result and that's the title wrapped up. I think we all need to take a chill pill and just relax a touch, we're in a title race and it's great but there is a long way to go and we really shouldn't be buying into this media idea that it's ours to lose. It's only 5 points and even had it been 7 there was still a ways to go.

      My worry is that the pressure from the media and the fan base added to the '29 years' talk will undermine what the team are trying to do. Thankfully we've got a manager who has been here before having won two titles in Germany with Dortmund so he will be keeping the players on an even keel i'm sure.

      Will be interesting to see how we cope IF the gap does get shrunk to two points by the time we reach kick off.

      Usually it's us that is asking questions of City and extending the gap, so perhaps we need the Gunners to do us a small favour on Sunday. That said I still think we've got more than enough to deal with West Ham come Monday night.

      Liverpool to get whatever result City get. West Ham another of those clubs who are generally crap but like waking up for a big game.

      Despite our issues at the back I expect 3 points.
