      I hope to see a few 1st teamers in there, possibly Mo to see if he can find his dribbling and shooting boots again, he's been a bit poor recently.

      I kind of agree with this - might do Salah some good

      Do we have 3 reserve strikers? In any case if it is to regain some form then why not play Mo for a half, he was very poor yesterday, terrible touches.

      His touch let him down 2nd half but I thought he played well in the first half. I think the rest is more important than anything else, these lads have put in some serious running with 3 games in the last week and yesterday was about as tough as it gets.

      Salah, Bobby and Mane (if fit) can be on the bench in case all goes awry or be in position to come on for last 15-20 if all is going well.

      Though the front 3 were all poor offensively, yesterday.  Were good in the press, but as soon as we had possession, struggled to string passes together.  Salah looked like he had springs on his shins the way the ball kept getting away from him.  Mane was shut down by 2 players every time the ball went anywhere near him, & Firmino was much less influential than he's been in recent weeks, despite the goal. 

      We certainly dodged a bullet yesterday, as Chelsea were worthy of least a draw IMO.
      After not getting the 3rd goal early in the second half, when we had 3 good chances in quick succession, it always looked like being a tough finish to the match.

      If we defend like that against City, we will get put to the sword, as they won't blow the chances Chelsea had.

      A great result on a ground where we aren't historically great.  We can now field youngsters & 2nd stringers Wednesday and hopefully recharge the batteries before the early KO on Saturday.  A must win game before a tricky set of fixtures.  Leicester, Utd & Spurs are all games where City will hope we can drop points.

      A big month or so ahead before we entertain City in the crunch match.

      COYR!!!

      Gave my MOTM to Adrian.  If Mignolet had been in goal the last 6 games we wouldn't be on 18 points.

      Feel the same way.
      Adrian has been massive for LFC in not having the loss of Alisson impact on points scored.
      He's been immense at keeping the team in the game under pressure.

      If Origi is available, he, Brewster and Shaq should be the front 3. We just played 3 games in 7 days including that tiring game in Napoli, so we should be rotation the squad as much as possible, but particularly up front.

      If Batshuayi or Mount scored from their chances late on, i wonder if Matip would still get MOTM. He played well but at least three occasions where he switched off completely to let them in. The Abraham chance in the first half that Adrian saved was Abraham peeling off Matip, too.


      Think the fault there was TAA. He was the one who played Abraham onside after the other 3 had stepped up, so Matip was in the right and expected him to be offside.

      Well get the f**k in....Love beating those Cu*ts anytime so regardless of the way we played, especially in that 2nd half, we got what we went there for and that was 3 points. Well done lads.

      What I didn't understand was when Alonso came on for them. He killed us down that LH side, kept putting in cross after cross, making life very difficult for us. Why didn't Klopp block that off? Was shouting at him, way before he brought Gomez on to get Gomez on and protect that side of the pitch.

      Life would have been so much easier during that 2nd half if we had a cut that avenue of attack for them, out.

      Klopp knows best obviously but FFS Jürgen, take it easy on our hearts Boss!


      6 out of 6.

      32 to go!!!

      He certainly gave us problems, but we created some ourselves.

      We had TAA bombing forward at every opportunity even though we were already leading 2-0, and often we were then caught out on the counter with the diagonal ball. Would have been simpler for him to hold back and focus on the defence.

      And those getting a rest Wednesday will play 3 more in 7 days beginning Saturday. The day off is worth more than any in-match dribbling practice.

      Hoever right back and maybe Milner left back?

      Maybe. If Joe and Lovren come in at center back (Virg can stand a break now and then too!), Then I guess those are the remaining options at outside back. Hoever is inconsistent with the U23s as you might expect for a 17-year old.  You could switch those right and left as well, as Hoever played well on the left vs Lyon.

      I reckon he'll rotate the forwards a bit but still play one of the regular forwards each half, defence and midfield can be easily shuffled though.
      I'm going to the game so hope to a good performance and a solid convincing win, with the fringe players really trying to prove themselves.

      No idea what the problem is.

      Salah was up against an opponent yesterday who could match him for speed.
      Nothing to do with his dribbling.
      Tomori (sp?) also had very quick feet when deling with Salah's tricks, often getting a toe in or a little touch.
      He played Salah one one one, as well as I've seen anyone do it.

      Oh so all you need to do to negate one of the best strikers in the world is to have a fast player, who knew!! and there was me thinking it was down to Salah making wrong choices, trying to dribble through every player rather than pass and move and having a terrible touch, by his standards, which led to a poor performance.

      I feel confident Salah is still a reasonably good player for us.

      I suppose on one level, you have to admire the tenacity in trying to stir up sh*t and negativity, and this constant drive to create narratives.

      On every other level though, it's just cuntishness.

      Salah is allowed the odd day off. He can't cut teams to ribbons every week. I think Hendo didn't gel that well with him in the first half. Not a big problem. Rest him for MK Dons. Mane obviously will be rested.

      Brewster,Ox,Shag,Lallana,Gomez,Lovren,Milner few others probably make up a side.

      From the BBC Gossip page

      Chelsea fans say the unfurling of a Eden Hazard banner before Sunday's game against Liverpool was a mistake as the club inadvertently gave supporters the wrong banner to display. (Standard)

      Which tells us 2 things.
      1 the club are obviously a bunch of idiots and
      2 the fans are even more plastic than we thought if they have to have banners provided for them

      Salah is allowed the odd day off. He can't cut teams to ribbons every week.

      Salah has gone to face Chelsea 3 times since he signed for us. He has been nothing short of awful on every occasion. He was so bad last year that he was subbed with 20 minutes to go, with us needing an equaliser. But how many people would start somebody else instead?

      Delighted with the result, and that a potential disgraceful offside decision against us was overturned. That's what it's there for, and it won us an extra 2 points that before this season, we couldn't get. More about that later.

      I'm not that bothered about the performance, we haven't played well at Chelsea for years. It's not about playing well there, it's about getting a result, and if we can win there, even better. The last half hour was a drag, but there were not too many scares. A couple of years ago, once one goal went in, the roof fell in. It doesn't happen now.

      I see here that David Maddock listed off a couple of new records we've just set. All well and good. What he didn't list off was that he admitted on Press Box last month, that he doesn't want VAR to be used for offsides, as he can't accept the lines are straight. The lines are more straight than a wall, and you cannot score goals if you're on the wrong side of the line, period.

      When we last went to Sheffield on the first day in 2006/07, there was uproar in the media because the ref gave us a penalty for their player attempting to foul Gerrard. Fowler scored and we got a 1-1 draw. A draw this time will not do, but a win gives us the chance to go 8 points clear before City play again. Even at this early stage, that will be a sizeable gap in our favour. A few more wins and maybe we won't have to worry about what City are doing.

      Gave my MOTM to Adrian.  If Mignolet had been in goal the last 6 games we wouldn't be on 18 points.


      Same here, I have been toying with starting a topic whether Mignolet is better than Adrian, personally I don't think so, Adrian has in at very short notice to sit on the bench, and with in, what was it 30 mins or so, he's playing in Goal for the 6 times European Champions, to be honest, I was worried.

      Not much better in the Super Cup Final, but now, for me he has made such an improvement, fair play to him & our coaching team.

      As to the game, a few years ago we'd have lost that, we looked knackerd in the second half, but thankfully we fought and won, Chelsea have improved & look half decent, but because of the vile fan base, f**k 'em.

      Played 6 and won 6. Can't ask more than that.
