      Not a fan of that talk from Pellegrini really. Rafa may have been pleased privately to have helped us but we will never know because he kept his thoughts private.

      Hope we can make his team suffer today.

      Shows the level West Ham are at if the manager has to start talking about how he wants to help out City in a title race.

      Opportunity to go 5 points clear at the top of the league in February.

      You wouldn't have dared to dream that in August so I'm going to relax and enjoy it, because next year it might be back to our usual debates about whether we will finish in the top four.

      We cant win the league tonight we cant lose it all that is on offer is 3 points . No statement to be sent out just win the game collect the 3 points and get back to Anfield .
      Until we get to the last 6 games or so a defeat or two for any of the top 3 will not  finish their challenge 6 wins on the bounce is a lot of points to gather in the run in. Lets not get ahead of ourselves or be suicidal if we don't win.

      Don't think Trent is back for this but surely enough about this team to get back to winning ways.
      Only area that might be targeted is RB. We've seen it in the games where Trent and Gomez are out.

      Cover that off, be it with Virgil or Fabinho instructed to marshal RB.

      Only other real question on formation is whether Shaqiri starts.
      Nailed on if it's 4222, but think he's been more effective from the bench.

      My tone is fine just stating what I notice when I go to Anfield it’s the younger crowd trying to get a song going and the old boys are usually having none of it.

      They would rather sit there slagging off Henderson.

      In fact the Scandinavians are some of the best fans they know more of the songs than I do!

      If a crowd of 3000 odd during the away games can make so much noise, why can the young boys who are at home not make the same amount of noise. Forget about the old guys, I would assume from the 53000 odd spectators, at least 10000 should be young crowd, right?

      Lovren not injured? Seeing as he apparently is, I haven’t actually seen anything official about it.

      Don’t think Shaqiri starts, he’s been really poor since the start of the Wolves game. Keita I would like to play and finally show what he can do but I don’t think he can be trusted just yet so I expect Klopp will go 4-3-3 and have a midfield of Hendo, Fab and Gini.
      Instantly gives us better options on the bench, much rather see the likes of Shaqiri and Keita coming on than Lallana!!

      We need to go a bit more attacking in midfield against these, hence my choice for Lallana. I see no point in playing 3 workers in midfield in this type of game.

      Bring Shaq on after 60 mins for Lallana.

      Totally forgot about Lallana!! And I do prefer Fab and Wijnaldum as the 6's. Wouldn't mind seeing that midfield setup... but then again, Keita is more penetrative even if he doesn't have a good game.

      mob mentality mate,away crowd y'all got more confidance to get a song going.But if ya sat in the kop with ya one mate,next to an old guy,cell phoner,etc etc.it's gonna take more balls to stand up and start a f**king song/chant.Kop should be general admit no assigned seat,get in early if ya want a spec.

      Thats it. Mid table team who are conceeding left right and centre against league leaders with Europes most feared attack.

      Lets find out about ourselves tonight. Do we go for the jugular or fearful of defeat play cagey....i know what it is for me. And our front 3 owe us a game tonight

      If anyone wants to feel a little less nervous about tonight then look at West Hams injury list.

      Some very decent players who won't be making the game tonight. Their  first choice CB Reid another good defender in Cressweol their keeper Fabianski. Play makers Lanzini, Arnautovic, Yarmolenko.

      All out.

      All that matters on the run in is winning , getting 3 points , winning big doesn’t give you a different three points - be professional and solid - the exact way that has us top of the table right now.

      I can only assume that the poster spouting his usual sh*te either ignores what Klopp says, or doesn't bother even finding out.

      Klopp's said quite a few times that he's changed the balance of the team to make us more solid defensively.
      It's not as easy on the eye as last season, but it's very effective, as our league position shows.
