      every game he plays now he will get back where he was before injury,wish him all the best and hopefully will become a regular again .good luck to the ox.

      Yeah and he's a trier for sure. Really determined to give the Boss a headache.And we do need more goals from midfield. Ox as we know prefers coming through the middle. Could play in front of Fab in the hole.That might leave Hendo on the bench but the Ox has earned a chance in the big games, not just making up the numbers in the Cup games or getting thrown on for the last 20/30 mins.

      Another frustrating game with loads of missed chances, but we got the 3 points and are looking very good for qualification from the group.

      Job done, comfortable enough, probably another goal wouldn't have flattered us.
      Thought VVD did well in defense, Fab in the middle, AOC coming in again did well to grab the winner.
      Mo is giving Jürgen something to think about against Citeh - start him or AOC? He's still getting into good positions but his decision making and shooting is poor. Whereas AOC has 4 in 3.
      Don't think Keita's giving Jürgen much a selection headache - did OK, but would be looking for more.
      Thought Origi did well. And Alisson strong hands when needed.
      Think it was 5 changes or something from the weekend - so fair play to the lads for getting the 3 points and all but wrapping up the group - important win :) And well done to Jürgen again.
      Roll on Citeh..

      And who says we can’t rotate? We can rotate and we can get the job done.

      The team Sunday, barring injury or illness, is Akisson, Trent, Robbo, Virgil, Dejan, Fab, Hendo, Gini, Mo, Bobby and Sadio.
      Subs: Adrian, Gomez, Milner, Lallana, Keita, Ox, Origi.

      Mo looked a lot more lively last night than he has in the last month or two. Can only be a good sign for the weekend.

      Yes, some one is going to get a hiding,and as you say Ian it might as well be City.I made the Ox m.o.m. he gets better every match he plays.

      I just think we should start Ox and tap into tuis goal scoring form he’s in.

      Been creating a decent amount of chances lately but our shooting boots haven't been on properly. Couldn't believe how many good opportunities seemed to end up in Row Z against Villa Saturday - surely only a matter of time before everything comes together though & fingers crossed it's this Sunday!

      Rather surprised to see Mo Salah start rather than Mane, last night. Who has been in decent goal scoring form lately. Thought it was a rather lacklustre performance on the whole. Seemingly with the game against City, in mind, Klopp making quite a few changes, anyway 3 points and a win, moving the Reds to top of their group, made it a satisfactory conclusion. Although not a great game for the fans.

      Deffo. And we've no choice but to make changes, can't put same team out every week.
      The Citeh game is such a massive one - top of the table 6 pointer, and a physiological edge for whoever comes out 'better' [think a draw would be OK for us, less so them].
      Jürgen's main target is the PL this season, could see it in the changes last night, and knows how important Sunday is.
      In saying that, the team he put out should've been good enough to get 3 points, and they were.
      Going according to plan so far this week...

      more lively but just as poor in terms of passing and shots, really not sure what the hell is wrong with Mo at the moment, he's a shadow of his normal self. I'd be very tempted to start Origi or Ox in his place.
      One big positive from yesterday was that Gini played a lot better

      Another goal from Ox last night. A real asset to the team, chasing the title, especially when he returns to full fitness.

      Thought we were poor.  Good result especially with Napoli drawing.

      We position ourselves very well going into the last couple games given the points Napoli dropped vs the other teams in the group. I like the idea if we can see off Napoli at home that we are in the knock-out stage and got 1st in the group. Plus allowing us to play more than likely a side with a mix of bench players and reserve player in Austria would be good rest period during what will be hectic month.

      Exactly. It was a poor performance, especially when considering we were at home for this but it was 3 points with an inferior side. On paper we certainly don't have the squad to rotate frequently and maintain some sort of equilibrium but Klopp is doing it and it is working. Have to take your hat off to the man, he's taking risks and they are paying off.

      As you have already said, beat Napoli on match day 5 and we qualify as winners, this also allows Klopp to give fringe players a run out and an opportunity to gain valuable experience in European football against Salzburg in match day 6. What Klopp is extracting out of this Squad is quite literally phenomenal when you think about it.

      We have to beat Napoli otherwise it could be a very nervy final game against Salzburg. That is of course assuming Salzburg beat Genk which is by no means guaranteed, Genk are actually a fairly decent side and at home you'd expect them to have a real go.
